“Summer Paradise”
Reviewed 13 June 2012

As a frequent traveler I find Blanca Spa & Resort perfect fusion of wild nature and luxury. The hotel is located at Vlasic mountain few fotspets away from skiing slopes. Facility is exiting , best sleep you can get and the staff is extremely helpfull. Hotel offers numerous outdoor activities and team building programs. I strongly recomend this hidden treasure.

Am a repeating guest. I find the place a "secret jewel" on the Bosnian Mountain of Vlasic, in which every time I discover something new. The hotel has great installations and the staff is very attentive.

Room Tip: Get one room with views to the Olympic ski jump!

To begin with positives...great location in the heart of the ski resort, within walking distance from all ski facilities, cafes and restaurants. Rooms are nicely decorated, spacious and with great view..watch out for the view as not all rooms have nice view...bathroom is large with heated floor. Rhere is no shower hanger in the bathroom. Tv did not have even half of advertised channels. Heating did not work properly but they got it fixed swiftly. Spa is desent. Swimming pool small, but cousy. Four sounas never got that busy. Did not get a chance to try massage as all were pre booked. Food is avarage and definitely overpriced. The staff is trying to be nice, but far from five star service.
Overall, great potential...but still long way to go to achieve 5 stars bar

Dear and Respected Mrs Lejla,
We kindly thank you for your review which helps us improve.
Regarding positives, yes, all Superior double rooms have a great ski sloop view, and we will be more than honored to provide you with a same room next time when you decide to visit us and rank whether we have improved.
In addition, I wanted to notify you that we have set up shower hangers, and now each room and apartment supports it, we were in a set up process.
We also improved our cuisine with a sequence of trainings by fabulous and well know Chefs from Split, so I honestly believe that you will enjoy it next time.
Furthermore, in Mont Blanc Restaurant now we have a lot of special offers which are highly affordable.

Thank you for your review and looking forward to your next visit.

At your service,
Nikolina Jovanovic

The hotel design is great, so warm and cozy, a combination of wood and stone.
There is a few things that need to be fixed (holes in the wall, missing letters from names of the hotel areas, some dents around the hotel - all in all nothing big).
Our room was huge and the beds comfy. The shower is a bit strange and leaks all aroung, but did not find it as a disadvantage. The problem is that you need to shower towards the wall in order not to get the bathroom flooded, and if you do that, you totally soak all the towels that you can put only there.
The staff is really kind and helpfull, not too professional. They use the hotel facilities as all the other guests (eat at the restaurant, drink at the bar, use the SPA etc) but can't believe I am saying this - this was really fun as the staff was everywhere you turned and even if they were not working, only drinking at the bar, they would talk to you or assist you with anything you needed. For example, our heating system did not work, and we ran into conversation with the maintenence manager at the hotel SKI bar off duty and he went to the room right away and fixed it. We would run to SPA staff around the hotel off duty and book massages, the front office staff to negotiate on the late chack out...
The SPA is nice, but really really dangerous to walk around as the tiles are not ribbed and really slippery so you need walk holding the walls. The jacuzzi n the SPA does not have the hot water, it is not cold but it is not the temperature you would just relax and spend 10 minutes in. The massages are really good and not too expansive, so enjoyed a couple of those. The problem is that the therapeut is also on the front office so you really might need to cathch the staff aroud the hotel to book your massage or wait untill you see the receptionist and grab him/her for booking.
The restaurant is GREAT, the food is just amazing and if you are there - don't do the mistake we did on the first two days when we ate out - if I tasted the hotel food would not move from there the whole trip. The prices are a bit higher then in other parts of the ski area, but really worth it.
All in all, beautiful hotel where you can relly feel like in your living room and a definite reccomend!

I have spent one night on business in the hotel. I believe that in architectural terms hotel looks OK although meeting room was bit in a labyrinth. Staff is polite but disorganized. I got an apartment, a very roomy one with fire place, alas there was no lamp beside any of the beds.
Food in the restaurant was better than average.
