We stayed at Hotel Ivan for a weekend at the end of April this year. Although the rooms are nicely renovated and the bathroom has a very nice touch, the hotel seems very new. So new that there were still renovation works going on outside and inside the hotel. This seemed like a pre-opening phase were staff and hotel still needs to find themselves.
The biggest plus of the hotel is the outside of the resort. Huge and beautifully in all details. Plus and Minus at the same time: There is something for everyone; adults and kids, upscale customers and campers, cultural and mass turism.
One more thing that people should ask if they book that resort: "Do you have a seminar at that time?" As this was the case during our stay, it was hard to even get a drink at the bar inside or outside. I think this was poorly organised.
With all that I could live but then comes the breakfast which was special. Of course people sleep little longer but that is not a crime. At 10.00 in the morning the staff stopped to re-do the breakfast tables for further guests and you had to sit at dirty tables. If that means that I need to stand up at 8.00 to get a clean table, then good-night. Like in the old era of communist hotels. Hello Tito. The area and breakfast room is however very nice designed and openly with seaview which I find great, but please work on the service.
All in all I hope that this hotel and resort find their way, maybe to motivate the staff with a little better wages would get them values in the customer side. This is definetly the job of the operator or owner and still in Croatia they can learn how to treat the employees in order to let them pull on the same string.
