3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Could have been so good
We booked this hotel for its good food, comfort and peacefulness away from a busy resort. All of this went well until the final night when a very noisy wedding party continued until 4.45am. The hotel management apologised and we happily agreed compensation with them which, later, they arbitrarily reduced. This is a good hotel with a dedicated team but the problem was handled badly. Suggest you check if there is a wedding booked during your stay. If not then it should be on your list to consider.

Lovely room, excellent meal!
This was our favourite hotel during the 10 days we spent travelling Croatia and I'm happy to write a good review. I liked the themed decoration and lighting throughout the hotel, it was well thought out and very attractive. Location: This is a great place away from the crowds and other tourists, yet only a few minutes from the beaches. Room: Quiet, huge room, with a nice view of the pool and surrounding area. Two single beds pushed together to form one large king size bed, plus a fold out bed with privacy curtain. Electrical outlet on each side of the bed. The bathrobes were much appreciated. There is a refrigerator you can use to store cold drinks in. Bathroom: the shower had excellent water pressure and lots of hot water, something we don't always get in hotels! There's a hair dryer, bidet, and plenty of sink space for your toiletries. Soap/shampoo is in a wall dispenser. Dining: We had dinner in the restaurant and I can honestly say it was the best during our entire stay. I ordered traditional Croatian dishes and there is plenty on the menu...meat, fish, and vegetarian selections. Breakfast had a standard cold buffet of meat, cheese, breads, cereal, and yogurt...also was offered eggs cooked to order and freshly made coffee. Everything was very good.
