“Brilliant holiday with Strel Swimming and Hotel Spongiola!”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Last week I spent a fantastic 5 days in Croatia with Strel Swimming Adventures. Our base was the Hotel Spongiola, a lovely hotel in a great setting on the small island of Krapanj with large rooms, friendly staff and a good breakfast each morning! Borut & Alex organised excellent swims in gorgeous locations each day - always taking into account the weather, wind and so on and choosing appropriate places to swim. They also catered very well for the varying abilities in the group. Atmosphere on the boat was very relaxed and fun. Lunches provided were delicious too :-) looking forward to more trips with Strel in the future!

What a fantastic holiday - I've just returned from a week in Croatia swimming in the Adriatic with Strel Swimming holidays. The Hotel Spongiola is in a great setting on the island of Krapanj with helpful and friendly staff, large and clean rooms and excellent service. The swims each day were stunning and well organised by the team to cater for a range of abilities and distances, all with expert guidance and local knowledge of the area and weather conditions. But on top of this is was great fun and hit the perfect balance of a relaxing holiday interspersed with the best swimming ever! Thanks Borut and Alex for a great trip!

I am lucky enough to have been on some very enjoyable holidays, but this was one of the best!

Swimming in a stunning location with a smile and a sense of humour!! Borut and Alex deserve a huge amount of credit for the way they organised our swims according to the weather conditions and the different strengths of the swimmers in our party.

The Hotel Spongiola is immaculately kept and employs friendly, helpful staff. The food is excellent and very reasonably priced. The perfect base for our swimming adventures!!

Borut and the team were genuine, knowledgeable, entertaining guides who found us beautiful swim spots and effortlessly created a comfortable atmosphere.

Swimming was stunning in crystal clear water and the team was good at adapting the swims to the varying abilities in our group. The video analysis and tips increased our confidence and made the following swims even more pleasurable.

Hotel was super, great location. Overall amazing trip with a good balance between swimming sport and holiday vibe.

The staff are friendly, the food is yummy, the rooms are clean and spacious and the setting is beautiful! I spent an amazing week here with Strel Swimming adventures and it was bliss. Completely rejuvenating :)

We were here on a swimming holiday - training for our challenge for Cancer Research UK - <www.bikesplashbike.com> but it turned out to be the best holiday we've ever had!

Strel Swimming are fantastic and took us to a variety of beautiful locations to swim including the Krka National Park and the Kornati National Park and so we always felt we'd earned the delicious four course dinner provided by the hotel!

If you are thinking of booking a Swimming Holiday here - don't hesitate for a second - JUST BOOK!!

My family of 5 stayed in Hotel Spongiola, half board (breakfast and 4 course dinners) and it was beautiful.
The service was perfect - we were assisted with visiting family in Sibenik with a boat and mini bus transfer which was very kind. The meals were lovely. The rooms clean. The staff so kind and warm and helpful.

The little pebbly beach (bring thongs - you will need them) was crystal clear and lovely.

This is a simple island which is great to share time with my family. There are no distractions - just peace, quiet, beautiful water and great food and hospitality.

I recommend that you come and experience this island. It is a wonderful break.

Also, there is the gorgeous town of Sibenik to explore and Yadrin Baus can take you on a tour from his boats Mia or Tara - you can find him near the Restaurant Argola in Sibenik.

Wonderful wonderful stay.

I spent a wonderful week here with Strel swimming tours. It's a fantastic hotel, on an island with no traffic, right on the water's edge with great food and lovely staff. Perfect location for swimming excursions around the different islands. We were escorted on swims during the day by Borut and Aleksandr of Strel, then spent the evenings relaxing in this beautiful setting. Couldn't get over the peace - no traffic noise & just the lapping of waves - perfection! Thank you for a fabulous time.
