I'll start from the few good things: the sea is perfect near this hotel. There are not to many yachts, boats etc passing by, so the sea is very calm and clean. And it is a great swim! Also the food for breakfast is good ( surprising for this hotel) we have also been a couple times for dinner (international night, Dalmatian night) and the food also was good for the price you pay. I would even say that it is much better than in the most of the restaurants in the old city.
Also the location of the hotel is good - it is about 15 minut walk to the old town which is great if you like to wLk in the evenings) and the promenade is beautiful.
Now to the problems: the hotel is not a 5 star. It is 4-. I would chop of the hands to the architect who planed the hotel. The corridors are not conditioned: you can die there. There is a lot of dampness and bad smell due to poor ventilation and air circulation. Most of the windows in the stair part and in the gym are covered with dampness. The hotel has a bad smell from the moment you enter the lobby ( poor ventilation again). The beach doesn't have enough sun shade umbrellas ( 1 umbrella for 4 sun beds) and there is always a fight for the umbrellas! Hotel manager, buy more umbrellas! The rooms are pretty old, but they are trying to keep them in good condition.
The conditioner does not work properly in the gym - there is nothing to breathe.
Overall - the management is trying to be helpful, but they have to look after the hotel better! The feeling that it is going to fall apart soon.
I was surprised to see so many good and excellent reviews on the trip advisor ( which made us choose this hotel).
I would also say that the hotel is ok for couples aged 50+
