“Almost a good hotel - the owner fails miserably in hospitality”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2010

On the positive side: Great location at beach. Sweet, English-speaking staff. Nice and clean rooms. On the negative side: Unpleasant smell in bathroom. The owner doesn't or refuses to speak English. She is also rude, very rude actually.

Just to make a notice that in fact all our reviews got much better since 2009, thanks to management change and better relations with our guest.
We are very pleased about the impressions that our guests are writing last few years and specially 2010,2011.
Thank you all for that.

Good location on the beach. Nice, clean rooms. The staff was very nice and friendly. This hotel could get a GREAT review, if it wasn't for the fact that the owner was rude and refused to speakand/ or understand English. She only spoke to the German-speaking guests, ignoring the rest.

The airconditioner did not work well and neither did the wet bar. I complained and complained of no use. The Internet worked but it took a full day to get the owner to fix it. She wants cash for the food served in the restaurant, you guess why? The prices are way out of range compared to other hotels in the area but if you are driving and have no reservations what can you do? She wanted to charge me Euros 1.5 for 100 ml. of milk so that I can make my own tea. I would compare it to Stalag 17. Don't fall for the glitzy brochure, the only redeeming factor here is the manager and her assistant they are friendly, very helpful but it takes a long while to make up for the iron fisted owne.

I had read nearly all the reviews before booking this hotel. I was not disappointed at all. The staff is very friendly and helpful, especially if you are nice yourself. They will make meals for you when needed. They have good advice, are helpful and actually caring. And never arrogant. So if youre not hostile yourself, this hotels' staff is perfect people to have around. The view is magnificent. I was here in off-season, no dought about that. So i got a room with extra large balcony. The beach with actual sand is right there in front of your eyes and less than 30 sec to walk down to. If you are not used to having seaview or easy access to beach this hotel is perfect. You might get a sun-bed in the balcony , or at least you have a table and chairs. The view from the restaurant is also magnificent.

However the hotels' restaurant is really expensive. You can eat in downtown at a restaurant for half the price. The breakfast is great. Good quality and variety. Better than most other 4-star hotels. They might even cook warm food for you like omelettes for breakfast if you want.

Split city is easy to access by bus. Every half hour. Or van, also every half hour. 12 Kn each way and takes 30 min to town centre. A main road to Dubrovnik runs just outside the hotel, easy to travel on , and still almost no noise to the rooms. But be very careful when driving form the parking and on to the road, as it is situated on a bend.

I really recommend a tour to Livno in Bosnia, near the Croatian border. Safe and easy to drive to. To see the spectacular alpine / scandinavian like landscape. A huge lake just across the border, with beautiful small towns and valleys around. It takes up to 2 hours do drive from the hotel to Livno, Bosnia. Its well worth it. And they will not trouble you in the passport controls ( neither Bosnian nor Croat), not even if you go by car. Inside Bosnia there is peace, tranquility and very lovely people. Bosnia was amazing in every way. Also it is a contrast when you come back to the sea and islands and experience the difference in landscape on a short trip.

I liked my stay in Hotel Sunce. I have stayed there for week. The stuff is very nice and friendly (ask for Ivona, she will give you informations about everything you need). My room was very clean and had a beautiful view. If I ever go in Split again, I will definitly choose the same hotel.

My family and me were at lovely short break in Split staying at Hotel Sunce.
As this was a special birthday celebration for my father -in-law we took particular care in choosing where to stay. We were certainly not disappointed with our choice.
The hotel is located at beautiful beach in Podstrana, only 10 kilometers from center of Split. The hotel itself was extremely clean and rooms attractive and comfortable. Breakfasting on the hotel terrace looking the sea was delightful and a super place to return to in the evenings for a relaxing drink and dinner after a hard days sightseeing.
All the staff (thank You Ivona for care and informations about everything we have asked, thank You Maria for clean, fragrant room) and the owners(Thank You Mira and Vlado for beautiful breakfast served with love) were friendly and helpful.

We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel as a excellent base from which to explore the delights of beautiful Split and this part of Croatia.

This was the best hotel in Europe. It is clean, right on the beach and has fabulos views from every room. We were three 25 yr old girls staying in the hotel for 8 nights and we can't thank the staff enough for their hospitality. The staff especially Adrianna are so helpful. Anything you ask for is done immediately. The food at the restaurant is exceptional and so cheap even when converting from Aussie dollars. We went on excursions organised through the hotel - to the islands, dubrovnik, omis, ston, and trogir (The transport service was fantastic) just a call away. We will never forget this experience as croatia was definitely our highlight. Thanks Hotel Sunce
