Umag stay

This time we stayed in a newer residence and room was more comfortable and bigger with good sized balcony. Food ok for Dinner and breakfast but restaurant appeared overcrowded as too much people roam at the same time for buffet Service.

Umag Holiday

We stayed in older residence building Olea which needs some improvements, however balcony was nice. We had a problem with one arrogant waiter during dinner service, but complained directly to the hotel which was resolved. Pool is nice, but water was cold as it is not heated.Solid food for dinner and breakfast.

    Katoro stay

    Average hotel (we have got a room in residence Olea, which is old and deserve refurbishment). Nice swimming pool but awkward business policy of taking 100kn of deposit for pool towel. Beach is 5 minute away, however it is rocky. Solid food offered for dinner and breakfast, but too much people roam around as restaurant is small.

    Hotel was good but disappointed by hotels.com

    We chose this hotel because of it vicinity to Katoro beach, a nice snorkeling place for beginners. The hotel and the "residence" are different buildings but they share a restaurant (big enough for all), pools (nice but the pools were either too shallow, about 40 cm, or too deep, 1,35 m, for a 5-8 year old) and the waterpark, which is basically a pool with slides for smaller kids and a set of 3 slides for bigger ones. There was a nice selection of other activities as well, so you were not bored for sure. The rooms were fine, not outstanding but good for our stay. The breakfast selection was good, but unfortunately, I cannot comment on the dinner because somebody messed up our reservation, and the hotel only had as "bed and breakfast" instead of half-board, which we originally wanted to book. That was a very disappointing experience, and hotels.com did not help nor did they even get back to our messages. The beach is a short walk from the hotel, it is all rocky though, clean but you must wear rock shoes. There are some restaurants and a market nearby, plus you can take a little train to Umag for sightseeing.

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
    Never had a worse experience

    Extremely overpriced for the quality of the hotel and the service - I am shocked to even see it's a 4 star hotel - wouldn't give it more than half a star. Charged 90 euros per night for an extra person in the room (even though I specifically booked a room with an extra bed) - extra bed turned out to be a sofa bed which was like sleeping on a cardboard box Staff not helpful at all nor accommodating to our simple requests Room was not clean and had ants roaming around Air conditioning was not working our entire stay Breakfast was unbearable - eggs were out of a carton, everything was processed, even the fruit was not fresh Charged us 45 Kuna for ice in the room Photos of the hotel, rooms and the property are very deceiving Definitely do not recommend this hotel at any cost - I could not wait to get out of the place. It was unfortunate because Umag is really nice but coming back to this disgrace was a holiday ruiner.
