We travelled with friends on a (too) short visit to Split and selected to stay at the Radisson based on its modernity and amenities. True, it's a little out from the centre of old town Split, but there is a regular bus service costing around £1.30 each way.
The hotel has an impressive and large lobby area, and the Reception staff were friendly and efficient. We arrived early at the hotel meaning that our room wasn't quite ready and so we went up to the pool area to relax and wait. We were allowed into the room as soon as it was ready, which was still before the hotel's standard check-in time.
We stayed in one of the standard rooms on the first floor. It came with a balcony and a sea view. The room was clean, comfortable and well appointed. Best of all, everything worked!
Breakfast is served buffet-style in the Fig Leaf restaurant. There's a plentiful array of hot and cold items. Eggs are cooked to order. We also had a evening meal there which was also served buffet style. The restaurant has seating areas both inside and on decking outside - well worth grabbing a table there for sea views and the sea air.
We had dinner one evening in The Caper Grill - the hotel's a la carte restaurant. Service could have been a little quicker, but the food was enjoyed by all of us. Also, the local Croatian wines are pretty good and well worth sampling.
We didn't use the spa or indoor pool as we were out for most of the time exploring Split and the surrounding islands. The outdoor pool is not heated and the water really was very cold when we dared to get into it. It was under-used as a result.
During our stay, all the staff that we encountered were warm, friendly and helpful. Always smiling, they really wanted to make your stay a memorable one - and they succeeded.
Split is a lovely city - Roman ruins, centuries old houses, narrow streets and alley ways, bustling markets and some up-market shops. It's also a very busy ferry port offering trips to the islands close by, as well as to Italy and beyond. Loads of street cafes, bars and restaurants to choose from. You'll never get bored.
It was our first visit to Croatia - it certainly won't be our last.
