After a rather stressful drive from Zagreb to Split, via the Lakes, we landed at the Radisson Blu hotel. The hotel's modern, cool, and clean rooms with balconies and sea view were just the thing we needed. The room was small, but comfortable. The bathroom was HUGE and very modern with all glass shower and funky hot pink lights!
The pools are really where it's at at the Blu. The outdoor pool is a gorgeous infinity-style pool surrounded by big loungers with plush cushions. The palm trees add the view of the sea, as if the view needed any more assistance. The indoor pool area, also the spa area, is another inifinity- style pool, along with two hot tubs, a sauna, steam room, and a "quiet area" that's dark with loungers and free books to peruse. I was in heaven.
The breakfast buffet was also pretty spetacular - from the fresh fruit smoothies, to the omlette station it was delicious.
The Caper Room, one of the restaurants, was just OK. It was a little pricey and the food was only so-so. Service was lovely.
The ONLY negative thing about the RAdisson Blu is it's not close to the Riva Promenade. We walked it one night, along the beach. It was very long and I would not recommend doing that again. There are not many lights and in places the walkway was dangerously close to the sea. It was about a $10 taxi ride, and if we go back I'll stick to the taxi. That is, if I can get myself up from the pool.
