Hotel Croatia
Ranked #2 of 12 Hotels in Baska Voda
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 January 2014

If you want to do Baska Voda but don't want to do the apartment rental thing and prefer a hotel, this is probably the place. It is located right in the heart of the main street that runs along the beach. You are within walking distance of the beach as well as a number of restaurants and bars. The breakfast is good, and the hotel was very clean. On top of this the staff were very friendly and helpful. I really can't complain about anything.

If you are looking for a great place to stay in Croatia...look no further ! Hotel Croatia should be a 5 Star Hotel ! Brilliant Staff, lovely rooms, Excellent food, 1 minute walk from the beach ! Parking across the road. Several great restaurants & bars in close walking distance.

Just returned from a 12 night stay, and, as first time travellers to Croatia we didn't know what to expect, we needn't have worried all the previous reviews were correct.
The staff were fantastic, in particular the reception and breakfast staff were so pleasant and helpful, the room was immaculately presented and kept that way throughout our stay.
In the words of the immortal Arnold Swarfega "Ve vill be back"
I would also like to give a special mention for the King Restaurant which is right next door and supplies the half board portion of your stay, from our first meal to our last the food was amazing,and the owner his daughter and all the staff treated us with such kindness and professionalism.
We were a little worried on hearing the half board arrangements that there would be a special, sub standard menu for the guests of the hotel that could not have been further from the truth,we were able to order anything from the varied and substantial menu ( I personally recommend the steaks,and for those with a big appetite the veal shank for two is a sight to behold and tastes Devine.
Lastly a quick mention for the Ver river raffting company who we spent the best day of our holiday with,a trip organised by the hotel, the team that run it are so professional and the scenery during your run down river is breathtaking,a must do experience. Once again a massive thank you to all the staff at the Croatia and we will be recommending both yourselves and your beautiful country to all our friends and relatives.

This place was really, really nice. The room was spacious, tastefully appointed and very clean. Also true of the reception and breakfast area. The staff couldn't have been more polite and helpful. It is obvious that these folks are working very hard on running a first class hotel. Cudos, we couldn't have been more pleased.

This was our first time in Croatia and we did not know quite what to expect. Well we need not have worried it, was a wonderful week made more special by the Hotel Croatia.This Hotel is special, a well appointed room,spotlessly clean with welcoming staff. The buffet breakfast was very nicely laid out and with plenty of variations and all delicious. A warm thanks to all the staff who were obliging and polite. In all a lovely base to explore this beautiful coastline.Parking is a big problem in Baska Voda generally. The local parking attendants home in on you as you apply the handbrake and the cost is 10 kuna per hour if you can find a space. The hotel will supply an access card for the car park 50 metres away which allows parking for the duration of your stay with no limit to the number of entry / exits. there is a charge of course which is added to your hotel bill but it is so much easier. I think we will be back again.

Room Tip: Some rooms have sea views, others have garden views. Our room was overlooking the dining annexe but...

Dear Harry, thank you so much for your review. We are very glad to hear that you had a wonderful week staying with us, nice to know that we are special to our guests. Our staff also apreciates your kind words. Nice to hear that you enjoyed breakfast, we read mostly good reviews about it and we always say to our guests to let us know if there is something they would like to have for breakfast that we don't have so we can order it.
Parking in Baska Voda is a bit of an issue, but in the future, we will try to occupie even more spaces than we have for now in the parking lot and give our guests access cards to make it easier.
We do hope that you will be returning to our hotel in the years to come.
Thank you again and best regards from Baska Voda.

Dear Paul, thank you for your kind words. Even do you have a small complaint about the sea view-sea side rooms, you gave us such a nice review and gave us compliments about our brilliant staff, which for sure they are, our breakfast and cleanliness of the hotel so big thank you. Nice you mention local knowledge of things, since I as a manager always hire local people to work as receptionists since you cannot teach people who are not from around here evreything about our Makarska Riviera, you simply need to be from here to know your town and to help the guests to enjoy everything they should enjoy while staying in our town.
Regarding extra paying for the sea side room, it depends on what do you prefere, there are 4 of these rooms, each have a sofa for an extra person to sleep in (other rooms don't have it) and they are a bit bigger in size than normal standard double and they overlook the town promenade. You can see a bit of a sea, but a big tree is blocking the complete view unfortunatelly, but this tree gives a good shade during hot summer days, so we can say that the tree gives a shalter from the sun but takes a perfect view of the sea and island Brac.
We wish you a wonderful rest of the year and hope to see you again in our hotel. All the best.

This is a great place to stay in the town, set 1 block back (20m) from the main coastal strip. It is clean, has wifi on every floor. You can get the buffet breakfast inside or just outside - a very good selection with cooked dishes available to order. The reception staff are very helpful. The air con worked and was quiet. Next door one way was a very good restaurant (though not cheap), the other way was one of the cheapest bar / restaurants on the strip. Hotel Croatia is ideally situated about in the middle of the marina area, you can go left (South) for the town and right (north) for the best beaches. There are loads of walking and cycling routes in the hills behind or you can follow the coatal path for miles in each direction.
Baska Voda is very cosmopolitan, it is a family resort favoured by eastern european visitors; English a distinct minority. Despite that most people will understand you or even be eager to chat and improve their English.
If you arrive by bus it is a 10-15 min walk from the bus stop on the Magistrale - head downhill then turn right at the water front toward the marina. And yes it's a long hike back up again when you leave, don't believe the people who say the buses come into town (unless you have one pre-booked)!

Room Tip: Rooms at the front (which have the waterfront view) can be a little noisy if you have the window ope...

Dear John, thank you for your wonderfull review. We are glad that you were satisfied with our staff, breakfast, room and Baska Voda in total. You are correct, if you leave the windows open, you can hear a bit noice from the street but we are in the tourist center so a bit noise is expectable, but after 11 p.m it gets quieter and definately we recommend sleeping with windows closed specially for light sleepers. We wish you a wonderfull rest of summer and hope to see you again in our hotel. All the best from Hotel Croatia staff.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Situated in the centre of Baska Voda, Hotel Croatia is right on the waterfront, close to restaurants, coffee bars, beach cafes and shops. The beautiful pebble beaches for which the Makarska Riviera is famous are close by, and the closest is only 100 m from this charming hotel.Hotel Croatia was fully renovated in 2008 and, in homage to past times, its facade bearing the characteristics of original Dalmatian architecture was preserved, while the interior was fitted out with fascinating stone staircases and an indoor garden. This charming four-star hotel combines traditional architecture and intimacy, with 18 rooms on the ground floor and two upper floors. Unfortunatelly hotel Croatia doesn't have private parking, so if you are coming with a car public parking is available in front of the hotel along the promenade or just 150m from the hotel in the marina and fees apply. ... more   less
