Make sure you know the right location as there are a few variations on Starigrad in Croatia. This is Starigrad-Paklenica.
I was taking a group of motorcyclists down to Croatia for a few days and chose The Hotel Vicko at Random. I booked direct and the staff were very helpful.
The hotel actually consists of 2 accommodation properties, the hotel proper on the mainland side of the main road through Starigrad and the Villa Vicko which is across the road on the waterfront. We were in The Villa Vicko so did not get to see the rooms in the actual hotel.
My room was on the north side and had a small balcony which allowed me to glimpse the water through the trees. It is good, clean basic accommodation. The room was large with a huge Double Bed. We didn't use the TV but the Air Con was most welcome. The ensuit was of a good standard. Sleep quality was excellent. There were no complaints from any of my group about their rooms.
As stated, Villa Vicko is virtually Beach Front and has a small private terrace with sun beds. Go through the garden gate and you are at the waters edge. It is not Sandy Beaches here though but concrete platforms which were very clean. The water is crystal clear. I am not a beach fan but the ladies in our group took full advantage and loved it.
Going back to our arrival, we were warmly greeted by the staff as if we were long lost friends. Our motorcycles were directed to what I assume is usually a conference room which amounted to one of the best garages my motorcycle has ever seen.
The staff were excellent throughout our stay.
Breakfast was included in the price and consisted of a typical breakfast buffet for the area with hot and cold food and a good choice of coffee.
On 2 nights we took advantage of the evening meal option for €15,- each. Eating out in Croatia is very cheap anyway but we had multiple courses with main meal choices of fish and meat. There was always far to much but it was of a good quality. Beer and wine is as cheap as anywhere else in Croatia, very cheap, and the only questioning of the drinks bills, once we had worked out the exchange rate, was "are you sure that is enough?"
The restaurant also has a nice sun terrace but this was closed after dinner was over and guests and to use the Lounge Bar below.
The hotel is just a few hundred metres from the centre of Starigard which can be reached along the waterfront for the romantics amongst you. there you will find a pleasant selection of restaurants and bars and also a number of Beach Hut Stalls selling all sorts of items and which are open until around 11pm.
We were there in relative early season but the staff were well up to speed.
Ideally situated for sightseeing to Trogir and Split to the south and Plitvic National Park to the north east. As a motorcyclist, the coast road north to Senj was perfection.
We will be going back. Thank you Team Vicko.
