We are wery disappointed. The smell was horrible. No air-conditioning. 120e was too much for that. Room was filthy. We will not go that again. The swimming pool was shallow ( 45cm ) and the beach is dirty. Buit - 70 century and nothing has been renovated since then..

I would stay here again, if nothing else then for location. A lot of beaches, nice area. To all the people commenting on bad food and the hotel itself being old I say: What did you expect from a 2 star hotel? If they would renovate it, it could easily be a 4,5 star hotel. We were staying during July... More

Very unconventional experience for a few days with the family in this "piece of history" : dated back to Tito times ! Nothing to say about the great location : simply amazing. Very nice and clean sea with a lovely view. The hotel in my opinion cannot even been refurbished ... it should be knocked down and completely rebuilt !... More

This hotel has a great location with wonderful views over the sea but is completely outdated. There is a large selection of food on offer for each meal but it gets very repetitive very quickly. I stayed with a large organised group so it was cheap and cheerful for that purpose but I would not stay here again until renovations... More

This place allows you to feel like in the 70's when it was built! Very old style but in amazing position with great view from some of the rooms. No air conditioning! Beaware that in this place you are far from the city and services are very basic. Price is good, but I am sure you can find similar deals.... More

If you want a time travel machine, this place will do the job. You will be transferred some 35 years in past, while Marshal Tito was still alive. Breakfast from the horror movies. I'm not sure if it's worth your money.

Inexpensive and this is reflected in the guest experience. Dining room is well organised and food is very good given that it is mass catering. Absence of air conditioning in the rooms is probably a challenge at the peak of summer. Reception staff could be a bit more proactive in their helpfulness.

Hotel was "elderly" but not too uncomfortable. Great views from some rooms. And ocean breezes would have compensated nicely for lack of air-con. Except that we could not leave our windows open at night due to the thumping bass tones of "Dimensions" festival 8 km away that played till 6am. Staff was very friendly and understanding about noise dilemma. We... More

I stayed here with a group of people for a group dive trip. For the price we paid, we got decent accomodations. The view was fantastic, I loved the bar downstairs, and the breakfast was wonderful.
