“Good choice”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

This is clean & comfortable place, and a good option in brac. Hotel itself does not have a Wow effect but staff made our stay more special. They are very kind and helpful. Food was also very good, tasty and served well. Beach is nice and close by and is clean. Very relaxing.

May is absolutely fabulous on the Island of Brač and in the resort Bretanide. It is not so hot at that time and what is most important, the hotel is not crowded, nor is the beach or the town itself. The staff are very kind, helpful and efficient, hotel clean, all sorts of facilities, great food. Price performance before high season is also very good, which could not be said for high season (far too expensive). My rating goes to pre-seasonal offer and for the new building with great rooms.

Room Tip: Definitely check if you have a room in the new part ... it makes all the difference. The only proble...

The Bretanide Resort was a little disappointing. The pictures on the website definitely give it a more glamorous image than it really has. Parts of the hotel are old, and parts have been renovated, and naturally it is the renovated part that you can see on the website.

We paid an up-price for a room with a view of the sea in the old part, but when we arrived, we discovered that according to Bretanide, "view of the sea" meant your windows were facing the sea, but not necessarily that you could see the sea - because a buidling was blocking the view. I went to the front desk to complain, and they tried to fob me off at first, but then I began to raise my voice and a manager jumped in. They gave us a new room where you could see the sea if you strained your neck. The balcony was too small to actually use, and it was full of dead leaves and debris. So, my tip, don't bother paying more for a sea view: it's not worth it.

The room was 3 star standard, and it was cleaned every day. The airconditioning worked well and was necessary!

The buffet in the main restaurant is very good, however, even if it does get a bit repetitive after two weeks. The outdoor dining area was enormous with the atmosphere of a bus-station with families running around, but we found another outdoor dining area that was much smaller and more romantic: ideal for couples, but we had to get to dinner early enough to get a place.

The wine that is included in the "all-inclusive" price is undrinkable, though. So, instead we drank beer. The hotel also has a smaller restaurant that you are allowed to visit once per week as part of the package. Here we ordered a bottle of Croatian wine that was very good, but a little pricey.

The biggest disappointment of all, though, was the resort's private beach. The beach is very small and there is only a limited number of beach lounges and umbrellas. So, the fight for a spot on the beach began very early in the morning, where often people put their towels on a lounge to reserve it (some time at the crack of dawn), but then didn't come down to the beach until 2pm! I found this behaviour terribly anti-social and would expect the hotel to develop some kind of system to control this.

Zlatni Rat is very close, but also, at peak season crowded and not really very big. Much more glamorous in pictures than in real life.

We are not sure if we would go there again. On one hand the vacation was extremely restful because in a club all your basic needs are taken care of, but on the other, it was not really an inspiring or interesting stay.

Welcome message:
Guest: Hello, we've booked a room on name...
Desk manager (without checking anything): Are you sure?
Guest: Well, normally yes, it was confirmed...
Desk manager: No problem, it's just that some people think that they've booked but they didn't, no problem...
Guest: Well, it's not a usual welcome message after the long trip...

Average 3-star ressort, not very happy staff, only for Germans/Autrichiens, only for families, small 2-star rooms, avoid if you have a better choice

This hotel on the island of brac is very friendly and although the rooms are quite small they are well appointed. The people are very friendly and helpful. All inclusive limits the drinks a little but not too bad. Food is excellent particularly the bbq style restaurant.
Pool and gym facilities are good and we found the surrounding area to be quite beautiful..make sure you do the island tour, well worth it with stunning view over the island.
About the only down side was that we were the only English there, everybody else seemed to be Germans / Austrians and several were the usual loud and aggressive types.
We were there in late September and would definitely recommend this for a quiet holiday. Nearby town of Bol is worth a visit in the evening, very good pizza bar with live music most nights overlooking the harbour.
