Stayed here twice in 2009 and will stay again in june 2010. Staff were the frlendliest I've come across in Croatia (I've stayed in about 10 different hotels in Croatia). The GM, Kreso Tomic, is great as are his reception staff who seem to have his dry wit. A couple of the waitresses were a bit grumpy in the morning but come dinner time they must have had their caffeine fix and were transformed. We were upgraded on both visits. Suites were great with 2 bathrooms, sitting room, enormous balcony, large closets, microwave, fridge, etc. Having seen the bedrooms in the renovated part of the Neptune, they look big, nice bathrooms, and nice balconies. We have sea views which were amazing. Very quiet rooms.
The pool area is very good. And no, there isn't a sand beach, but thats the way it is in Croatia for the most part. And who wants sand anyway as it gets everywhere. There's a kids pool, a few showers, good drinks service, steps into the sea,loungers, umbrellas, etc.
The buffet breakfast was good. All kinds of everything. Food at dinner was also buffet but also good. Its simple but simple doesn't mean bad. Don't pay separately for the dinner as its very pricey for a buffet. You might as well go half board and eat out a few nights. I see there was a review that complained how there were wasps and cats outside at the dining area. EAT INSIDE. If you want a laugh, eat outside and watch some kids run for cover when wasps arrive.
The gym is very small but is very quiet (at 6am anyway!). Dumbbells are light enough going up to around 30kgs. There's a smith machine, small cable machine, a small multi-station for pulldowns, rows, leg curls, leg extensions, tri-pulldowns. Couple of treads and xtrainers. While the massage/spa isn't exactly luxury, the therapists were very good. Had a sports massage and the woman was a physio so she knew what she was doing.
The area is quiet and a 20 minute bus ride from the Old Town. Its about a 10 minute walk to the shops, restaurants, food shops, etc of Lapad.
