Our apartment was in the Garden so it was peaceful and really nice with the small terrace and the rooms was nicely furnished. There was a double of airconditioning in our apartment and they worked perfect. The staff was so friendly and very service minded and every morning they came with a breakfast tray. It was only 5 minutes walk... More

Hotel Residence is absolutely worth the money and you will not be disappointed. Super choice for families with young children who may need home-cooked meal. We stayed in an apartment with two bedrooms and a kitchen. Lovely spacious room with balcony, furnished with taste. Residence is located next to Le Meridian and for a small fee you can enjoy all...

I stayed at The Residence in late May, beginning of June 2012, for one week. My first impression of the hotel and staff was that it's of a very high standard, with a nice relaxing atmosphere. Our apartment was on the ground floor, facing the sea, but I wouldn't call it a sea view (what we had booked), since the... More

In comparison to other residences we stayed in, this one is very modern, very professionally run, very spacious and luxuriously furnished. There is a small grocery shop on site, and the staff offer transportation to Split, which added to an overall high quality of service. If you need more than just residence facilities you can easily get access to the... More

We had a lovely apartment with one bedroom and a huge terrace on the fourth floor. The room was wonderful and modern and the view was just amazing! Staff we're very helpful and friendly. It was close to the small beach and for a small fee there was beach chairs and parasols to rent from the hotel next door. The... More

The Residence is right next to the prestigious Le Meridian Lav and just a 15 minutes bus ride out of Split. The bus stop is just a few minutes walk away from the entrance on the main road. For a surcharge you can use the pool and spa facilities of the Meridian and watch the sun set in their infinity... More

This hotel was a great deal. The room is big, spacious and very clean. Plenty of room for one person. I love the decor and furniture, all brand new and very modern looking. The hotel is near the beach and Le Meridien where one can eat with a 20% discount card from The Residence. The staff at The Residence was... More

Dear Sir, I am very sorry to hear that last year your stay at The Residence was disappointing. Our garden units are small compared to other apartments (35 m2 in size), but lots of guests did love them because of the shade and greenery that they provide when outdoors temperatures raise above 30 degrees C. If you decide to come... More

The Residence was absolutely perfect. We have vacationed on the Croatian coast for the past 15 years. We have stayed all over the coast - in luxurious hotels and private apartments. Our 5-day stay at the Residence is perhaps our best vacation experience in Croatia! Location: The Residence is located in Podstrana, a short drive from Split. While we preferred... More
