We stayed for 7 nights at this hotel in late May, on arrival our allocated room was a small double with views of the busy road and a very small shower room. We soon upgraded to a sea view room opposite, much more spacious, for a supplement of 10 euros a night. The hotel doesn't have balconies but the sea view rooms have large opening windows. The sun only comes into the room until midday though. The breakfast and dinner were all buffet and although there was quite a bit of choice I found the standard mediocre, and the food was never really hot, just sitting on hot water trays (bain Marie). For breakfast especially it would have been nice to have had someone cooking eggs to order, instead of just leaving them all in trays over the hot water. The staff were ok but never really engaging with the clients. Having breakfast on the terrace overlooking the sea was fine, except for the constant problem of pigeons trying to have their meal at the same time! There is no real beach at Opatija, every hotel has a concrete "patio" area where sun beds can be used. The hotel has a nice large indoor pool which is sea water and heated, I thought this was excellent. With very little effort and perhaps extra staff training, this could have been a much better hotel.

- Remisens Hotel Kristal (4*) Opatija is a sea lover's dream come true. Built on the banks of the Adriatic and along the Lungomare coastal promenade, the sights, scents and sounds of the crystal clear water are inescapable. The spectacular views of the Adriatic are everywhere. From the seafront rooms to the restaurant's terrace to the private beach, the beauty of the Mediterranean is never far away. Over half of Kristal's 130 rooms boast views of Kvarner Bay and its islands, an inspiring scene to wake up to each morning. The beach is furnished with new deckchairs, parasols and whirlpool and provides a wonderful escape for a sun-soaked, relaxing day. Other features such as the SPA zone and indoor pool with heated seawater push the four-star accommodation to another level of splendor. Also equipped with conference and banquet facilities and close to the center of town, it is no wonder Remisens Hotel Kristal is one of the top destinations in Opatija. ... more less
