What a nice relaxing venue. The Villa itself was clean and very peaceful. The owner was extremely accommodating. Having seen that one of our party had purchased Camomile tea, he made sure it was available the next morning for breakfast, which was plentiful. We even had toast when we asked for it (typical Brits huh?) Foam beach mattresses were lent... More

Fantastic owner and staff. They could not do enough for us. Very warm welcome when we arrived. Hotel extremely clean. They had a lot of information / leaflets about the local area and further out. This hotel is not suitable for people with mobility issues / wheelchair users though due to all the stairs and no lift. Restaurant wasn't open,... More

We stayed in Podstrana (close to Split) for 9 days, visited Split, and dined at the Senator's restaraunt almost every night. The Mediterranean cuisine there is superb, portions are generous, atmosphere is also superb, and the service excellent. We also enjoyed the wine and the local knowledge and opinions offered by the staff.

Stayed here for two nights as we were travelling around Croatia and spent two nights in Split. The hotel is about a 15 minute drive to Split so if that's where you want to be staying somewhere nearer is probably your best bet. The villa sits above a restaurant but was closed as we went in the quiet season when... More

I have sent 4 days at this hotel about 15 days ago and while satisfied with hotel in general, I was sourly disappointed with false advertising. Good points: clean, spacious rooms, regularly cleaned and well kept. Pleasant and helpful staff. Bad points (False advertising): “3 stories”; actually 5! – 3 in the hotel + 2 more from the road (problem... More

While we did not stay at the villa, we visited the restaurant almost every night from our hotel on the beach. The father and son team are simply amazing, and we received the best service during our trip to Croatia at the villa senator. It is a great place to eat offering much better value than the restaurants of the... More

Nice and clean rooms, with a big terrace. The internet connection it's kind of slow/ inexistent in the rooms but it's OK on the terrace. The host it's very helpfull and the breakfast it's diversified. There it's a 5 minutes walk to the beach. I would recommend it to anyone.

We have just spent a fantastic week here. Arrived slightly early, but met by the owner with welcoming complimentary, ice cold Croatian lagers and given very informative binders about the surrounding area to read. We were then shown to our room on the third floor, with a fabulous views of the coast, which we did request. However, the room was... More
