“Calming comfortable hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

We spent a weekend in this lovely though busy resort in July 2013. Great food, good gym facilities, great views from the hotel bedroom; beautiful coastline and swimming in the sea. The wardrobes in the cupboard did not have sufficient shelving space which made it difficult to keep our clothes. The bar staff were attentive; the concierge and other waiting staff were poor (we almost did not get our flight back as the car we had booked through the concierge was not confirmed with the taxi driver!). Location to the city was quite a distance but they had a good shuttle service into the city which worked very well for us.

Room Tip: sea facing room

Dear Valerie D,

Thank you very much for your reaview!

It is nice to read you found our hotel lovely and comfortable and you enjoyed our food, gym facilities and our most famous views spreading from almost every corner of our resort. Thank you for complimenting our staff. I can assure you our associates pay attention to every detail in planning transfers and other services, so mentioned must have been just an unfortunate coincidence.

I hope your was will bring you back to Croatia and we will have the opportunity to welcome you again.

Best regards,

Mirjana Simunic

Beautiful resort, few "car minutes" from Split.
Food, stuff, wellness with pool, comfortable views, everything is ok.
Tasty cappuccino is the best in Marina, with nice view on island Brac.
And beautiful piano bar is also worth to visit.

Room Tip: Ask for room vith a view on sea or marina.

Stayed 3 weeks on business. Very pleasant staff. Restaurants very nice in an Eastern European style. Rooms nice but a bit oddly and very comfortably furnished - as if a room designed for a couch got instead one chair sort of thing - very few TV channels in English. Bar, pool and beach all very nice.

Room Tip: The higher room facing the pool have best view but are noisiest - the other side is nice too

Dear Mrhullaballo,

You are most kind for taking time to write your impressions of our hotel.

I was delighted to read you found our hotel comfortable and our staff pleasant.
Mentioned incompleteness in TV offer is already on list of our upcoming projects.

I hope you will visit us again should your ways bring you back to Croatia. Maybe next time it will be "less business", "more pleasure" visit.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2013

This property has amazing views (but not from all rooms; the first "sea view" rooms we were assigned were staring directly into a thick patch of tree trunks and a rooftop, despite assurances the day before that they had blocked us into special upgraded rooms; luckily the next day we were able to move to rooms with a fabulous view). The public areas are all sleek and contemporary, the rooms luxurious, and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is excellent, although it can get quite crowded with waits for tables, especially when there is a conference and all the attendees converge at the same time. The internet service has a free version and a paid, upgraded version, but even using the paid version it was extremely slow and often impossible to connect; when I asked the front desk about this while trying to respond to an urgent business email, I was told 'yes, that happens very often because of too many people using it; you probably can't get on tonight but if you get up early you can probably get on in the morning'. Luckily I discovered that from out on the balcony I could access a free town wifi signal that was still slow but more reliable. So not the best hotel to stay in if you need to remain connected. The beach is far from the best in the area but fine for a quick dip, and the pool is very nice but crowded. If you're traveling for pleasure and looking for a place to use as a base to explore the central coast, and don't need internet access, this is a great choice, as it has great rooms and spectacular views at a very reasonable price. If you are looking for a hotel that is a destination in itself, the beach and pool might disappoint you, and you might want to look for other options, or if internet connectivity is important.

Location of this hotel is just outstanding. Panoramic views on the open sea are so romantic that you don´t need anything more...

But there is much more to this hotel...Elegant and comfortable rooms, breakfast that is so good and rich that is exaggerated...Beautiful piano-bar with views on the open sea...

We stayed there couple of times and enjoyed it always...

If you have time, visit this hotel in winter when you can stay there at a very good price and use all of its facilities almost privately

Room Tip: Rooms above marina.

Stayed here in the spring on business and was back again last week. Once again the room was good. Beautiful view, clean, nicely appointed rooms, comfortable beds. The staff at the front desk are always helpful, smiling and professional. The breakfast was first rate with everything you could imagine and then some and the wait staff were most accomodating. After the first breakfast the staff automatically brought all four of us exactly what we wanted to drink every morning without having to ask. Spa was wonderful as is the fitness facility. Great view from the fitness room. Only minor issue is the amount of fitness equipment - coulod use a bit more. Otherwise this is a fabulous property close to split and has everything one could want. Will certainly be back.
