“Amazing Stay!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

We stayed at Le Meridien in Podstrana and had a great experience. This hotel offers so much for couples, families, and people traveling for business. There is an outdoor and indoor pool which is great since it rained 2 days that we were there. Also, the spa is a great option for a relaxing afternoon. The hotel is located about 10 minutes from the city which was great for us. We were able to enjoy the beach during the day and then go out at night in Split with the hotel shuttle which ran every half an hour! The staff is very accomodating and really try to make sure their guests have an enjoyable stay. There are plenty of food options on site- my favorite was the breakfast! Thank you to all the staff for our amazing vacation! Will return for sure!

we have decided for a quick gateway vacation to the sun and beach .. and Split had won. it is the only 5 stars hotel in the region. Not a common SPG member I still had opt to go for it, value for the money,location & food.
commuting to the city is not easy.
staffs very friendly and helpful
food very nicely presented and delicious. view overlooking the bay is precious for sunrise and sunset overseeing the boats and the Adriatic Sea.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights out of a two week vacation. Because we used a bunch of Starwood points, our room was extremely cheap. However, had I paid full price for this hotel, I would have been very dissapointed.

The hotel property itself is gorgeous and spacious, with a great infinity pool overlooking the water, a nice beachfront and very friendly staff. There are ample restaurants on-site which are also very good.

But the hotel itself, as everyone knows, is a 20 minute drive from the city of Split. This wouldn't be so bad except that, unbelievably, the hotel charges its guests a per-person fee to use the shuttle van to downtown if they want to go out to dinner in one of the many fine restaurants in downtown Split. As if erecting barriers to leaving the hotel wasn't bad enough, the casino and nightclub were closed when we were there in early June (we had hoped to go to both as a form of nightlife). When we were asked how this could be possible, we were told that the hotel had "no control" over the situation because they had sold the casino and nightclub to a third-party company who now operated it. If that is true, that was an extremely poor decision because the casino and nightclub are the only things to do there at night.

The rooms are perfectly adequate but have a late-1990's feel. They also had some bizarre towel-card policy whereby if you did not return the precise number of beach towels every day, and then return the corresponding towel cards to the front desk, you were charged an obnoxious 100 Kuna per missing towel card. This was very unbecoming a supposed 5-star resort and added unnecessary anxiety to going about your day.

They have a nice bar which overlooks the water where you can get drinks and watch the sun set, but the service there was beyond terrible and after our first round of drinks, it took us about 20 minutes to get the waiter's attention.

In summary, this hotel isn't bad, but it certainly isn't great and isn't worth the full-price amount they charge for rooms. If you're visiting Split, do yourself a favor and stay in the city, unless you're sole purpose of being there is to sit on a pool chair.

I felt strong and powerful like a lion.
Spacious apartments, friendly staff, fantastic food at several restaurants, a swimming pool, a casino, a gym, a kindergarden, bars along the sea, beach, tennis courts, garage, marina for boats and yachts, .. a favorite haunt of local and international celebrities. Beautifully decorated hotel with a perfect nature. It's still Le Meridien!

Very nice hotel in Split, Croatia. Went with family in My 2014. Very attentive and helpful staff. Though the rooms are spacious and we had two with balconies facing the ocean and outstanding views the hotel can't be described as luxurious. It had more of an upmarket Holiday Inn feel to it. However, the sumptuous breakfast spread on the terrace with breath taking views of the bay and Split was outstanding. The hotel formed part of four buildings with a Casino and had excellent parking facilities. The only minor irritation was the constant influx of coaches disgorging hordes of tourists. The hotel had a nice beach with a marina where the hotel had its own fleet of yachts ranging from the average to the uber luxury kind that could be rented out.
