“Boris Novi Sad - Very nice hotel on a good spot”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

We was there at the end of May. We used one weekend (thu/sun) to make short brake and escape from everyday work and city life. Even we are 650km far from here and we traveled with car, we had very nice and restful weekend and we recycled ourselves.
Hotel is very nice and relatively new. The highlights and emphasis is on silence, peace, relaxation and quality food. Also, a complete SPA atmosphere is high. The facilities and service of SPA, there is nothing to criticize. Saunas, pools (I would prefer at least one with sea water), treatmens, areas for relaxation ... everything is first class!
Rooms are nice, clean, interesting with high feeling of Mediterranean. Staff is more than a polite, sometimes even more than you like. Food and choice of food is more than satisfactory with a sense of Dalmatia.
This luxury spa resort is perfect choice and "cat's whisker" for short (and not only short) vacation and rescue from city life. My high recommendation!

Room Tip: Seaview room is obligatory! :-)

Dear Mr. BorisNS,

first of all thank you for your very nice review and for rating our hotel that high!

We are very glad to see that you filled up your batteries in our beautiful scenery and enjoyed the relaxing and serene atmosphore of our Falkensteiner Hotel & Spa Iadera*****.

We are very keen on pampering all our guests in all ways possible - our Acquapura SPA is thus one of the main factors in shaping your holiday to something special and unique. There is a salt water pool which is located on the far right of the three pools.

Your recommendation motivates our staff even more to give their best in dealing with guests wishes and needs. We hope we did everything we could to convince you of our Welcome Home philosophy.

We hope to see you again in the nearest possible future and wish you all the best!

From Punta Skala with kind regards,

Yvonne Tesch & Team

We were really enthusiatic about the hotel: the smell in all areas, nice equipment in furtniture in room, almost the best half board we have ever had in hotels... with scampi&lobster at dinner, last day at breakfast: champagne & oysters!!!
As one day it was raining we went to spa to relax - beautiful, exceptional spa with two outdoor small swimming pools....hamman places...
Nice position, near the seaside with very nice pools...
Recommend to everybody to relax and enjoy in good food
The only negative part: very expensive drinks at bar /mojito cocktails......but very well-prepared.../ very nice athmosphere indeed ---with live music...

Dear Ms. Karmen J,

thank you very much for your positive review and great rating for our Falkensteiner Hotel & Spa Iadera*****!

It is a pleasure to see that you really enjoyed your stay with us and liked every single part of our service. The Alpe-Adria cuisine as well as the Acquapura SPA are one of the major factors that elevate us from other hotels of this category and we are proud of it!

Our Punta Skala peninsula offers everything from pure relaxation to sports and leisure activities for active holidaymakers and is a great location for special occasions, too.

Regarding our Iadera Signature Drinks, we prepare them nicely to meet the expectations of a 5* Hotel and thus are more expensive than other drinks. But you cannot deny the great taste and refreshing feeling after drinking one!

We hope to welcome you as guests as soon as possible again and wish you all the best!

With best regards from sunny Croatia,

Yvonne Tesch & Team

Beautifully located spa and wellness hotel near Zadar city centre. If you are traveling with the family this is excellent choice for you. The hotel is designed for the families with kids, lot of playgrounds, indoor and outdoor swimming pools. Saunas are very clean and comfortable. Unfortunately massages was not possible to get all appointments were sold out!
I liked outdoor pool which is heated and we enjoyed on the spring sun.

Dear GogiKastav,

thank you very much for the nice review as well as for the positive rating!

We are very glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay in our Falkensteiner Hotel & Spa Iadera***** that much and are flattered by all the compliments regarding our hotel design, family friendliness and Acquapura SPA - one of the Leading SPAs of the World.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience in the Acquapura SPA and that you could not book a treatment. Our SPA was and still is sold out and we would recommend you to book your treatment in advance the next time you are visiting us! The sheer frequency in the hotel at the moment is felt mostly in our SPA as it is one of our hotel jewels and everybody likes to get pampered by our well-trained staff.

We hope you enjoyed your stay nevertheless and will return to our hotel for another time in the near future and hopefully then enjoy one of our Signature Treatments in our Acquapura SPA!

Until then we wish you all the best!

With kind regards from Petrcane,

We went in May, the low season for Croatia. Iadera is central to the airport, Zadar center, and the autobahns so you can travel elsewhere as well. Definitely spend a day pampering yourself in the spa though. They have everything you could think of and it is so worth it to go sauna, pay for a massage, see the hamam or bathe there, use the steam bath, etc.

The staff are helpful, friendly, and wonderful. I was so impressed with their service and think America could learn a thing or two about how to have excellent customer service.

Rooms are modern, clean, comfortable and unique. We stayed in a double room with an awesome tub/shower. We had a desk and a little couch, tv, and mini bar too.

We felt like valued guests and would definitely go again. If you plan to travel around Croatia, it might not be worth the money to stay here because it is definitely much more of a resort hotel where you might just stay there. It's more like a cruise ship to me. I loved it either way. It was nice to pamper ourselves, but I think my partner and I could have stayed in a cheaper apartment or something for a few nights and maybe had one night there. We chose to splurge this trip though so that was nice for us.

Everything was wonderful though. I loved this place and would definitely choose it as a honeymoon spot or something in the summers (june-august). It's beautiful, great location, great staff, and wonderful service.

Room Tip: For two people, the double room was plenty for us and had a view of the sea. :)

Had the opportunity to step in to this beautiful hotel for a weekend stay. Arrived late in the evening and was greeted by the front desk staff, who ushered us in with a touch of warmth and ensured a smooth check in. Received a room on the 04th floor with an amazing view. The room was specious and had all the facilities that any holiday maker would dream of. The most importantly, there was a good Wifi access in the room, which was offered to all guests free of charge, which could be considered as a nice gesture.

Even though we were late to arrive to one of the specialty restaurant, we were made to feel welcome by the staff and served with a mouth watering dinning experience, which we thoroughly enjoined.

Second day in the resort was a memorable day as the day dawn with the beautiful scenery right in front of your eye. The hotel has a beautiful landscape where you could spend the whole day strolling around in a serenity environment. Added to that was the morning breakfast selection where you could find anything that you wish for, to go with very attentive staff.

The spa and it facilities are out of this world as I have yet to find a better spa in Croatia and i rate this to be no 1. You name it, you have everything that a leisure guest would look for and I made it a point to indulge myself in .

Overall i had a memorable weekend stay in this beautiful resort where I have no hesitation in recommending to any one, who is looking for a place to indulge in luxury.

We went in late March, so it was out of the hotel's busier times of the year. This on occasion resulted in certain ways (e.g. the Cigar Lounge was out of cigars), but on the other hand, the hotel did not have many guests once the weekend was over which was quite refreshing.
The rooms have, to my surprise, the bathroom included in the room without much separation - this does not go for the toilet, of course, which is separate. It was a bit unusual, however the room was spatious, comfortable and stylish, so in the end, it didn't matter. The spa is huge and very nicely decorated, the perfect place to get rid of stress. The service is also very nice and the food in the La Veranda restaurant in the hotel was excellent. The same goes for breakfast.
I liked the location very much as well, as the hotel is situated on a peninsula just outside Zadar, so you can get all the peace & guiet (and a beautiful view) you want. We rented bikes one day and took a short trip around, and if you like jogging, you can just step outside the hotel and go. There's a path that goes along the sea.

All in all - if you need to kick back & do some healthy relaxation like we did, this is the place to go. I also recommend finishing the day in the cigar lounge with a nice glass of wine - there's a fireplace there so it can be really cosy.

Room Tip: Take a room with a sea view.

Dear guest,

thank you very much for your detailed and positive review!

We are pleased that you decided to come to our hotel in late March - which really is out of the busy times. This time of the year is perfect for couples who want to get away from the often stressfull everyday life and completely relax for a few days on our beautiful Punta Skala peninsula!
We do have the landscape advantage on our side, yet the ones who are responsible for unique moments during your stay are the people in our hotel!
Our Acquapura SPA staff as well as the restaurant team do their best to make our guests feel as if they never left their homes and want to pamper each guest individually.

We hope you enjoyed your stay to the fullest and want to welcome home you back as soon as possible again!

With the best regards from Iadera,
