The Petalon resort is a different experience for many Western travelers. It is an older style, central European environment and most guests were from Germany or Austria.
The hotel is set on a hill from the seaside town of Vsar and each room is in a small grouping of "villa" style buildings spread throughout the resort. Rooms were spacious, clean, and relatively modern, but does not have the amenities of many Western style acommodations. Small balconies looked out over a cove of the Adriatic and was a beautiful sight each morning.
Hotel staff spoke sufficient English to be helpful. A pleasant and different experience

Modern settlement situated on a peninsula next to a stone and paved beach, 500 metres from Vrsar’s historic old town centre. …More
We had a fabulous time during our stay at Maistra and will be returning. The staff was helpful, friendly and spoke English. We traveled with 5 children and the hotel exceeded our needs. The restaurants were good and affordable. Two families with 5 children were able to eat for less than $60 euro. There were little shops within walking distance as well as many choices for meals. A few helpful hints would be to bring your own toiletries, beach towels and water shoes (beach has no sand). If you have access to a car, a grocery store is within a 5 minute drive. The rooms are well stocked with microwave oven, a range and a small refridgerator.

Part seaside village, part historic town, Vrsar has diverse offerings for visitors. Set on the Adriatic Sea, fishermen sell their goods during summer festivals, and the town's many beaches provide recreational opportunities. Koversada, one of the small, lush islands located off the mainland, is known for its large naturist camp.
