We turned up at around 11 on a Sunday morning. The accommodation we had booked elsewhere was totally inadequate. Initially we were just looking for breakfast, having not eaten a full meal for getting on for 24 hours, and having just walked for an hour and a half looking for somewhere to get something to eat. We were intending to carry on to look for alternative accommodation.
The staff at Villa Paula provided us with breakfast, despite it being way past breakfast time and were very welcoming and friendly.
As we related our tale of woe, we were told that they did have room and after a short discussion we decided to move our accommodation to Villa Paula.
We were driven the 5km back to the inadequate apartment we had booked and picked up our bags.
Our room was spacious, well appointed, had plenty of storage space, was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Our holiday was saved!
One of the reasons we have returned to Croatia (this was our 6th holiday there) is that the people are so welcoming and friendly. We were made to feel so at home at Villa Paula that we don't think they could have done anything more for us. The standard here is so high that they will be a tough act to follow.
The beach is about 5 minutes away; it is very handy for the frequent boat service to Trogir; it has its own restaurant which is fine, but it is only a few minutes walk to plenty of other restaurants.
For cat lovers there is a lovely, friendly hotel cat too.
