We had wonderful time in Hotel Life. A great teamwork of the personnel, everyone was very alert and kind and nothing was missing. The room was big and light, the pool was warm and clean, the sauna was always ready and everything was just right. The food was very tasty and precise, we enjoyed it very much. We hope to come back again and we advice this hotel to everyone. Moussa and Sanja

Dear Sanja and dear Moussa,

What a wonderful words! Thank you!
You were also wonderful guests and we really enjoyed having you in our hotel. Feedback, such as yours, is a valuable help in our constant focus on delivering the best service and quality possible.
Our team is always very alert regarding the satisfaction of our guests so the cleanliness of the rooms and public areas, readiness of the wellness and saunas, our extra offers like free bikes or just little talks over breakfast is the normal routine in the hotel, but above that with nice guests like you it is just a perfect working day.
With a wish to see you and to welcome you in our hotel again we are sending you all best and warm regards from our small oasis in Rogoznica.

Situated between the small costal towns of Rogoznica and Primosten, we stayed in room 103 at the Hotel Life from 16th-13rd September. Our room was a good size, immaculate and came complete with mini bar and Rituals bathroom treats. There is a small outdoor swimming pool, and also an indoor one with sauna, steam room, small gym and relaxation area in the basement. We tried this area out and it was lovely, we were also the only people down there so had 'private' use of all the facilities on offer. I also had booked a massage which was fantastic, one of the best I have had in a while.The breakfast option was the same everyday, but there was plenty to choose from out of what was on offer and we didn't get bored at all. The lunch/ dinner menu was delicious. Slightly more expensive than local restaurants in the nearby towns, but everything was always so tasty, well presented and we were also given a small complimentary appetiser before each evening meal. My partner particularly enjoyed the Duck with Fig chutney, and I liked the Tuna Steak with Spring Onion risotto (cooked to my preference).If you did want to sample local food nearby, the very helpful receptionist 'Anna' suggested we try Antonios in Rogoznica. Having tried a few of the restaurants around the area, which all had similar sorts of menus, this was by far the best choice.

The area around the hotel is very quiet, perfect if you are looking to have a relaxing holiday, but still within easy reach of busier towns, supermarkets, and tourist attractions. There is a small beach about 20 feet from the edge of the hotel and it was never full, so you always got a good spot to sunbathe. A car is a must we found if you stay at Hotel Life, and a visit to the KRKA national park is definitely worthwhile.

All in all, Hotel Life provided us with a perfect base for a great stay in Croatia. We would definitely mention this place to others and the owners have created a great quality accommodation with a lovely atmosphere.

We stayed for three nights and although it was ok, it was NOT a spa hotel, which is what we expected. This is a nice 3 star hotel though. You will be disappointed if you expect more.
Pros
The hotels and rooms are modern and beautiful.
The food was very good, albeit a bit overpriced

Cons
Most staff speak little English which made it hard to communicate.
The drink menu: Alcoholic drink was 8 euro....they did not list any drinks, we eventually figured out that their one alcoholic drink (cocktail) was a tequila sunrise??? Odd.
Check in time is only between 1400 and 2000. No late check ins offered.
Their check out time is 10:00 am. No sleeping in!
No outside food or drinks allowed. Not even in your room. Really???
Their spa is not really a spa but rather a room in the basement that will bring in an outside person for massages only. No nails, facials, etc.
Air conditioning barely works. It cools to about 25C only. They switched us rooms claiming they had no idea why it wasn't working (after first insisting it is working) but the next room was not better which leads us to believe they have it set to go no cooler.
No check outs before 7:30 am. We had to leave earlier to catch a flight so had to pay the night before.
Parking lot is very small. One day a car double parked in front of us and hotel did not seem concerned and left it that way all morning despite is being visible from the front desk.
Pool is VERY small...about 12 feet in length and 5 feet wide, smaller than your average back yard pool.
You can walk about 150 metres to the ocean but it is very rocky and shoes are required to go in the water. No dock or sandy entry into the ocean.
The hotel is located in a residential area with interesting nearby. You must drive to the nearest marina which has a limited selection of restaurants. The hotel is surrounded by apartments so you feel cramped in with nearby balconies full of laundry.
Wi-if was hit and miss.

I would not recommend this area unless you wanted a budget vacation. I would not stay here again as we have higher expectations for luxury and location.

Dear Mr Taryn Rick,

thank you for choosing hotel Life for your short vacation.
Hereby we would also like to thank you for sharing your experince in out hotel with TripAdvisor comunity.
We appritiate your possitive comments on food and hotel in general but we also cannot notice your other thoughts.
Our hotel is definitely a small boutique hotel with 18 desinged rooms and spa area addopted to the hotel's size itself. Although we have indoor and outdoor rather small pools there is a beach 30-ish meteres from the hotel with a beautiful transparent warm sea.
Every hotel has its house rules so has ours and we never stoped our guests of doing things in a hotel beside the house rules.

After your complaines about the bad air-conditioning we up-graded you to the better room with a direct sea view on the same price. If you see other comments on our rooms and air-conditioning you may notice there were no complains regarding it.

Regarding the parking area, our parking is free of charge for all guests and although it is small we always provide enough parking spaces for every car.

We are very sorry that you felt this way as you wrote and we will do our best to improve the quslity of every next guest staying in the hotel. Hopefully, when you come next time all the mentioned things will be improved and better.

Best regards from hotel Life and sunny Rogoznica

Stayed four nights at Hotel Life and loved every minute of being there. The location far from the crowds was great for us. The rooms and common areas are tastefully decorated and furnished, with quality materials and fixtures. The staff was very attentive and helpful. Very good breakfasts. Some people below complained about "watery coffee from the self-serve machine" - we never used the machine but always asked the waiter to make cappuccino for us and it was perfect. The chef at the restaurant is trying to be inventive and mostly succeeds at that.
The access road seems to have been freshly paved all the way to the hotel. It's still narrow and winding but very picturesque, loved driving on it.
I'm afraid the hotel should find a way to extend the guest parking even more: on a busy night it might be hard to find a spot even on the two unpaved "overflow" parkings. But I must say that eventually we always managed to find a place to park.

Room Tip: By all means take a room with a sea view. We were not sure it was that important when we booked one...

A terrific family-owned 4 star hotel. Excellent cuisine prepared by a young and ambitious chef. Quiet, natural beach, with clear water, not far from Rogoznica. Rooms with a stylish design, clean, good free WIFI connectivity, excellent air conditioning, and amazing beds. Very friendly and dedicated owner family and very motivated staff. They speak several languages and were always very helpful with every request made. We felt like staying at a friend's place and had a wonderful and relaxing week. This is a great place to recharge your batteries. We are planning to come back!!!
