Betsafe Poker is one of the most respected Scandinavian online gambling providers, as well as an established brand in online casino gaming and sports betting. This is a mixed blessing, because while poker rooms created out of casinos tend to have lots of fish, these are Scandinavian fish and probably not as bad at poker as you would like. Betsafe Poker is licensed and regulated in Costa Rica, and it is powered by the Microgaming Poker Network, which is one of the top 5 networks on the internet.
You can also get a very similar bonus at Betsafe's sister site - Betsson Poker, also part of the Microgaming Poker Network.

The main lobby at Betsafe Poker is easy to navigate, with buttons at the top and a window to display tables and all the standard info including table name, stakes, players, average pot, hands per hour and flop %. Table graphics are great with cool looking avatars and slick table play. A mini-view option is available to players who wish to shrink the size of their table to play more tables without overlap. In the preferences window players can choose to show avatars or not, show a timer or a nice four color deck, among many other options.
Dealer action is smooth and not too fast or slow, although playing at multiple tables can sometimes slow the action a bit. There is a timer bar for all players to know how much time they have left to act. The bar starts out as green and will turn orange or red as time runs out.
Chat and hand information are plentiful for players at Betsafe Poker. Chat can be displayed at the side of the table or in a little box at the bottom of the screen. Information can include all hands dealt, symbols along with bet sizes, player actions and hand summaries including who won the pot and pot size. Players even have the option of moving the chat box to any location on their screen.
Player statistics are available from the "Statistics" menu option which will include session stats/details and individual hand information.
