“Tricky photo of an ordinary place”
Reviewed 10 August 2011

Very difficult to find, we had to ask several people directions to the hotel. Even with a photo they’re unable to recognize the place. There’s no visible indications on the road. The picture in the hotel site suggest a tower, well the hotel is a 3 floor villa, adapted to a guest house. Small toilet and room with low quality furniture. The beach in front is dirty with no amenities. The breakfast is poor. The exception was the people on the reception, they were really nice. The most interesting thing in this hotel is the Marina of the Meridien Hotel a few meters away, where we had a nice dinner.
The hotel for an unknown reason is rated 4 stars. 2 stars will be enough!

We spent a week in Villa BB. Very clean, friendy staff ( especially the ladies maintaining the main building ). The villa has a beautiful garden and lovely pool area. Rooms are very clean, but quite small. Ask a room with a seaview and a fridge! The beach taverna has a beautiful location just on the water front. Very good and inexpensive food , fast service( although twice one waiter gave us wrong food, but did not do anything to compensate. He just said sorry !!)

It would have been perfect +, the only minus was that the beach tavern staff ( young guys ) were not as friendly as the ladies in the main building, polite yes BUT but not always with a friendly smile.

If you're looking for a relaxing, clean and beautiful place with a personal touch this is the PLACE to be.

Room Tip: Ask a room with a seaview!

Nice, large size, clean room facing the sea. Good looking well kept building, with impressive marble slab floors and staircase. Includes decent breakfast, free parking, good internet signal and multilingual TV channels. Staff was helpful and friendly.

If you are driving, the GPS will take you couple blocks past the hotel. The hotel is just before the bigger San Antonio hotel on the same side. There is a narrow steep driveway. The GPS coordinates N 43.48952, E 16.54292 should take you to the driveway entrance.

I would have given the hotel a 5 but it did not have an elevator. Not easy to carry luggage up two flights of stairs at our age - especially my wife's suitcase with rocks in it.

It was too far out of the way. The rooms aren't nearly as nice as are advertised. It was clean, but overall I would not recommend it.

We booked through HRS for seven nights. At arrival, the owner told us that the guest that had our room decided to stay another night and we cannot move in as booked. After some long negotiations we had a room for a night at a different motel (some 100m away). The second day the story repeated itself, but under pressure the owner had to give in but there were problems with the rooms that were free. At last, the second day at 12:00 pm we had our room (though not the one we booked).

This of course ruined the first impressions.

Podstrana is a place where you cannot do much (there are two family owned "supermarkets" where you can buy some food) and the restaurants are expensive and the quality is lacking. No nightlife, so if you want even for one night to go out, you are in bad luck. Everything closes at 21:00.

The personnel brought us fresh towels everyday, but did not clean the room; Wireless is available as described in advertisements, however only if you stay near the entrance door with your laptop in your hand.

Other than this, the room is alright: spacious, air conditioning and direct access to the beach through a small garden and bar.

Other plus points are that it is close to Split (take bus number 60 at a cost of 12 Kuna just in front of the villa) - 10 minutes.

So would I stay again there? No. I would go 40 km south to Brela (we went there everyday after we discovered it) - World class beach and restaurants with wonderful local food and reasonable prices.

Brela or Split, yes but no Podstrana, Villa BB.

Villa BB is a family driven hotel located just beside the sea and the private beach. The facility is renovated in 2009 has a good standard and is very fresh. The room has air-condition, sat-TV and balcony (some with sea view). The rooms are perfectly clean upon arrival but the daily cleaning is mostly changing towels and empty the waste bin so the floor become a little bit dirty in the end of the week.

The breakfast buffet is not enormous but very good in its class and you will have yoghurt, bread, cheese, ham, fried eggs and sausages, vegetables and fruits together with juice, coffee and tea. During the day the beach bar Luda braća (Creasy Brothers) serve you drinks and ice cream. The crew was very pleasent and help full.

Villa BB has no restaurant except from breakfast and the beach bar but within 15 minutes walk away from Villa BB there are a numbers of restaurants and some small supermarkets.

The buss who will take you to Split city leaves just outside the hotel every 30 minuets from early morning until midnight and takes you to Split city with the old town within 20 minutes (cost 2€).
There is no problem to go to Villa BB by bus from the airport (busline 37 and 60) and leave at Hotel San Antonio who is located just beside Villa BB. This trip takes about 1hrs and 40 min.

The hotel has a quite new homepage that not has been linked here before http://www.villa-hotelbb.com/villa-hotel-bb/

I will really recommend Villa BB and I don’t think you become disappointed if you want some sun vacation with possibility to easy access to Split and the surroundings.
