Lovely location. Great views of mountains and sea. The trip on the bus to/from Split has some lovely views. The bus terminal is a short walk from the Hotel (about 10 mins). The beach is lovely and clean but with pebbles. Definately stay again

We loved to hear the party boats coming in of an evening but once all the party goers disembarked everywhere resumed a nice quiet atmosphere. We loved Markaska and hope to return next year. If we do we shall certainly be looking to book Hotel Osejava
