We stayed at the Villa Moretic the week before Easter 2014 for a family gathering of 6 adults and 4 kids. Although the villa would have been able to accomodate the whole group we also hired an additional apartment next door at Moretic apartments-they are run by different members of the family and me and my husband wanted to have a bit of privacy. Both properties were very clean and equpped with everything we needed, but bring a laptop or DVd player if you want to watch telly as most of the channels are foreign.
The weather was unusually cold for this time of the year, but we still swam in the crystal clear waters using full wet suits- it was cold but also very refreshing.
We warmed up in the beautiful jacuzzi afterwards which is next to the outdoor kitchen which we used a lot for cooking.
The nearby Radisson hotel does day tickets for the indoor pool and sauna/spa area which was very nice. I also had a great massage there which was worth every kuna.
Don't bother going to the nearby Babylon rstaurant, the service was terrible and the food cold and inedible.
The restaurant Kasar which is a 20 minute walk away along the coast was excellent, you dine in an old pirate cove next to a fireplace and for the summer there is a georgeous terrace.
We took a boat trip to the 3 surrounding islands which was one of the best excursions ever! We had the boat to ourselves as it was out of season and Patrick the captain was good fun, he gave us lots of historical facts and even let the kids have a go at the wheel!
Irina and Pero were excellent hosts and helped with absolutely everything.
We organized transfers from the airport in advance with them and everything went smootly-we started to relax from the moment we arrived.
Despite the colder weather it was great to be there before the main season as it was peaceful and quiet.
I would highly recommend this place!
Thanks Irina and Pero!!!
