Having had a very busy year, we were looking for somewhere to relax and chill out. The Ambasador, with its very attentive & helpful staff, and its supreme location, fitted the bill perfectly. The rooms are adequate, very clean, air conditioned and, as ours was on the sea front, with a great view of the bay and the town-overall, great value for money. The Lunge Mare, the seaside promenade which hugs the sea for 12,13 or 14 kms depending on which guide book you read, provides perfect access to Opatjia and its neighbouring villages, with direct access from the hotel. The hotel pool and private beach-a rocky outcrop into the Adriatic with a personal stepladder into the sea-are great and there is a small pebble beach 50 yards away. Breakfast has a good range of choice-cold meats, cheese, fruit, cereals, hot savouries, pancakes, toast, eggs etc but food tends to be a bit tired if you breakfast late-b'fast is from 06.00-10.00. Reception staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. Plenty of places to eat in Opatjia-at all levels. I particularly recommend Roca, a small italian pizzeria on the main road and Evergreen in Volosco. Hemingways on the marina adjacent to the hotel is upmarket and very good £75 for two with lots of good wine and a great location. Opatija is ideally located for exploring the Istrian peninsula and I would particularly recommend a trip to Rovinj (about 1.5 hrs drive) which is a magical town. We hired a car from Uniline-office in Hotel Admiral-a Fiat Punto for £45 day-good value. Roads are very good-local roads and motorway are well signposted. We will return to Ambasador & Opatjia soon.
