First of all I want to thank the Dining room staff Petar and Stephen for going out of their way to make sure I was served with food catering for my special dietary requirements (low salt). It was clearly a pleasure for them to serve me in this way and took a lot of stress from my holiday and the worry that I may be ill, so I'm reluctant to complain about anything. They themselves and the chefs were 'stars'. Reception staff were lovely, very friendly and efficient. I can't comment on the buffet food as mine was special but my husband enjoyed it, although there was a tendancy to overcook the fish, but that aside there was a fantastic variety of food, and lovely desserts and fruit to compensate the guilt! Bar staff were very friendly and helpful too, although we couldn't get away from football in there as it was the European cup and there were 2 TV's! Others were enjoying it, so that was fine. We found fruit in our room for my husband's birthday and a happy birthday letter, which was a nice touch. Hospitality, service and welcome was definitely 5* with a family atmosphere. I thought the rooms rather dark, and was glad of the balcony to let the light in. I did notice that the balcony was not very clean actually, however the bathroom and room were kept clean. Could do with some kind of card to indicate a change of sheets or not.....I don't know how often they were changed to be honest! The hotel, as people have said is in the most beautiful position by the harbour with mountains around. Cruise ships can be viewed from the pool area. It was disappointing not to be able to relax on a sunbed at times, as there was certainly a shortage, especially to be in the shade (and only 11 umbrellas?). Temperatures soared to 36c when we were there. Croatia exceeded our expectations and it is really worth going on the trip to Montenegro and Mostar in Bosnia, hopefully you will have Tony from Gulliver Travel as your guide, he was fantastic, so interesting. We had the most wonderful time and would gladly return, maybe at a slightly cooler time of the year.
