This was a find. The hotel is a 10 minute bus ride from Split in the nearby area called Podstrana. It is on the Sea and is breathtaking. The owner could not have been more helpful and even drove us on pour last day to the bus to the airport. Clean and safe room and agood breakfast to boot.

The hotel was close to the beach and had a busstop (for buses to Split centre) right outside. The room was modern and clean and the noice level minimum. Though the wifi connection was poor. On the other hand the service is great, the owners are very friendly and helpful giving us access to the hotel's washingmachine and even driving... More

Upon reading the excellent reviews of this villa, I must admit I was a little disappointed. We stayed here for 4 nights in July 2014. The room was very clean and the shower was brilliant. However on the downside, it was very small and didn't look like the pictures on hotels.com. This is probably down to them and not the... More

We are just home after staying for one week in Villa pinocchio. My wife and I and our 18 year old daughter stayed in a studio flat with a small single room attached. Not the biggest room but it is spotlessly clean, modern and has enough for a base. The owners are both extremely kind and helpful. If you want... More

It is located very close to the beach, the owner is very friendly and helpful. The double room was very small, but we got an apartment when we mentioned that the pictures on the site didn't match the room. This is most likely due to hotels.com, and not false advertising by the owner. He even drove us to a large... More

The villa is a good find. It has everything you need to enjoy a stay in Split. The rooms aren't exactly luxurious, but are clean, modern and very fair for the price. Our room came with a balcony which faced the side of the building, meaning we had views of the hills behind the hotel and a little bit of... More

We had a marvellous week in Pinocchio and in Podstrana area. Nice and quiet beach is very close. Our apartment was spacious and we slept very well. There are buses to Split every half hour and buses also to other cities (e.g. Omis, which was very impressive place). The owners are very very kind and helpful. You really feel welcomed!... More

We had the top floor with the sea view balcony and felt we got the best deal looking at next doors balcony which was seperated by a high partition. Room was exceptionally clean, cleaning lady seemed to come every other day which suited us. Clean towels and loo roll topped up and washing up done for us as we cooked... More

My husband and I stayed May 17-24, 2014. I really debated between giving it 3 or 4 stars. I decided on 3 because I think it better describes my overall opinion of Villa Pinocchio as a place to stay. The good things: The owners are very very nice. There was a mistake in our booking by Expedia and they offered... More
