Spent three wonderful days in this hotel. The location is unbeatable if you want to have a quick swim from a beautiful beach in the morning and/or in the evening without schlepping to the beach for miles first. And all this with a free on-site parking (admittedly, not that easy to find, especially if driving at night).
I would have described the room ("Garden view") as large were it not so cluttered with redundant no-frills furniture. Had to move furniture around to make room for our suitcase. Rooms and common areas do somewhat lack character but the bottom line is that everything is there and functional. There's a fridge in the room (unstocked). Free WIFI was very reliable and fast enough for Skype calls. The breakfast was more than decent - can't really understand what some people complain about. There's even an ATM in the lobby.
Someone complained below that they found nobody at the reception when arriving late at night - apparently all you need to do is ask! We also were arriving around 23:00, asked if that were ok and were assured that they would wait for us as long as it takes us, even if we would miss the 21:00 ferrry from Split and arrive well after midnight.
Would stay there again in a heartbeat.
