We decided to do some research before we went for a long weekend to Zadar in Croatia.
As all of the beaches were pebbled, we looked for a hotel with a pool.
The Adriana Hotel (which is part of the Falkensteiner hotel chain) looked like the perfect option.
As it was almost the same price to book half board as it was bed and breakfast, we decided to give it a go. This turned out to be a brilliant idea. (Normally we prefer to go bed and breakfast only as we like to discover different restaurants in the town).
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome by Savino Giannella, the resident manager and all of his staff.
The rooms were tastefully decorated and the dining experience was excellent.
There was a full breakfast spread with more than you could hope to eat and the 5 course evening meals were exceptional. Not once did we eat out side of the hotel as the food and service was so good.
The only thing that could have caused an upset was that it rained for the entire time we were there, so the open air pool was not an option.
It could have been a real disappointment for us but for the fact that the hotel was part of a complex which had a Health SPA. This was another new and completely enjoyable experience.
We were given complimentary bathrobes and slippers to use in the SPA and as guests we were given free use of indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools, saunas, steam rooms, Jacuzzis as well as lounge areas to relax.
In addition I booked myself in for a massage and came out feeling completely relaxed.
Whilst the complex has fantastic facilities for children, the Adriana specialises mainly for couples so the atmosphere is very tranquil.
There is a fantastic water side promenade that runs for miles either side of the hotel, so our time was split between morning strolls and afternoon pampering in the SPA.
We will definitely be returning as it was an wonderful experience.
