Whilst the location is great and the hotel is still rather new we couldn't believe how many faults we found in our room. We were in a standard room with sea view and balcony and paid about 850 Euro for 3 nights. As soon as we entered the room we noticed the rattling sound from the A/C. As we already had to wait 45 mins. for our room to get ready (we were invited to a drink at the bar while we were waiting which was nice) we didn't want to go through the hassle of asking for another room so my husband fixed it provisionally.
The interior furnishings were tasteful but the highlight was definitely the balcony overlooking the cliffs, the beach and the sea.
The next "problem" we noticed was the shower partition which didn't close properly so all the water that was supposed to run down from it back into the bath-tub ran down on the floor. With a small towel we were also able to make it stay in its proper position.
The next thing was the drain in the tub and the sink. Both drained extremely slow.
When we were ready to go out into town we wanted to make sure our balcony door was locked. However, no matter in which position we twisted the handle it never locked the door. Even if the door seemed locked one could still open it by pushing one finger against the door.
Fortunately, there was a safe provided in the closet so we used that for our valuables.
What was also weird about this hotel was the fact how many stairs and different elevators we had to use to get to where we wanted to go.
About the free wireless internet: We barely had one bar of wireless reception in our room. It did work but it was difficult to connect.
The breakfast buffet in the morning does not compare to a Club Med buffet or something like that but there is enough offered to have a variety. The two waiters though were too busy every morning to set the unoccupied tables first before asking us for coffee or tea. Once we were almost finished with breakfast when we were finally noticed although there were only 3 other tables occupied.
The female receptionist and concierge were attentive, friendly and obliging.
Since the walk from the old town back to the hotel is rather steep I’d recommend taking bus number 4 which stops across the street from the hotel and costs 8 Kuna per person one way or 10 Kuna if you buy the ticket on the bus and not at the kiosk/newsagent.
In conclusion I’d say the hotel is still worthwhile but I’d go in the off season because then the price you will pay should better reflect the quality you may receive. Overall I would say this hotel is a 4-star-hotel but definitely not a 5-star-hotel.
