We had a tripple room, with balcony and sea view. It was quite small, as we stayed there family of 4 people. Hotel looks quite old and used from outside and similar it is also from inside. However they are probably trying to renovate step by step, e.g. lifts are new... Our room was very ordinary, we were from the very first look little disappointed, but then we got used to it. Old furniture and quite old bathroom as well, same on the balcony, which was on the other hand quite large, which was good. Cleaning ladies were cleaning daily, so it was perfect. Hotel was mainly occupied by older people, or older couples rather then young families. It is very close to the beach (50m), so no problem to go back and forward with small children couple of times per day. However there was some disco near by and who is sensitive on noise during the night, will not sleep until morning hours.
Buffet breakfast and dinner was really good. Wide selection, tasty food, just sometimes plenty of people fighting to get the best out of the buffet, so everybody was in rush when they opened :)
Generaly Makarska is a nice location, with long pebble beach (we were there in end of June and it was quite full) and I would recommend to visit this place.
