This hotel is situated on a fairly quiet one-way road next to the port. The water literally laps up a few meters from the entrance to the hotel. The main building is lovely and a decent sized pool sits betwee the road and the main building.
We had a pool/water view superior room. It was very modern but small. There were a few design defects in the bathroom but nothing material. We would have liked a balcony, especially as the room is small, but that wasn't an option for our room type. The flat screen TV had fairly bad reception and a rather expensive choice of pay-per-view films. The room was well serviced apart from some minor issues.
The included breakfast was average. The coffee was terrible but easily fixed by asking for espresso coffee which the hotel seemed ready to be provide.
The staff at the front desk were great. The resturant staff were grumpy and were clearly commenting to each other in Croatian about the guests.
There are a few resturants in the very close vicinity - the yacht club is good for fish. It takes about 10mins to walk to a touristy road with lots of resturants. walk down this road for another 10mins and you get to the closest beach.
To get to the hotel from town take the No 6 bus which stops outside the hotel. To get the bus back to town requires a 10min walk.
I got the impression that the hotel would have a 20-30 year old clientel (pool parties were mentioned) but most people were older and on tour groups. This may just have been June though.
It was a major plus that the hotel offered free wi-fi throughout and also had a free computer. I believe that in this day and age, any serious hotel should offer free wi-fi throughout.
I was worried that it might be noisy being opposite the port but despite several ships coming and going, it wasn't.
