Amazing hotel

This place surpassed all expectations, absolutely 5 star staff and facilities, special mention to the staff and ambience in the champagne bar. Food was great, loved the beach bar/club. Used one of the restaurants on the marina and again fantastic service and food. Great location.

Amazing location beautiful hotel!!!!

We stayed at this hotel for a week in August 2019. It is a 5 star hotel and not cheap but you get what you pay for. This is a fantastic hotel in a beautiful location by the coast. It has it's own Marina (where you can do a number of water sports and day trips) and 3 or 4 really good restaurants within the complex. The rooms are reasonably spacious and clean and ours had a view of the sea (i would recommend this). There is a bar with an outside balcony area that has a view of the Marina and gets an amazing sunset every evening. The cocktails and service are great. The only reason for 4 stars is that the buffet in the Hotel restaurant is a bit limited and the food can be hit and miss but with the option of the outside restaurants this is not really a problem. The hotel is centrally based in Croatia which makes it ideal for trips out to visit places of interest and being near the coast visiting the islands and boat trips are a must. I would recommend the Blue cave and Hvar as must do trips.
