A short drive from the city center, this hotel is off by itself on the water. Greeted by a charming front desk staff, we had lots of questions...all answered quickly and professionally. Suggestions were offered as well for places to visit while in the area. Room was in the "SPG" tower away from a group that had taken over the... More

Lovely hotel -The reception and the bar are impressive and the view as you first walk into the hotel is beautiful. Nice rooms though some have not got god views - definitely worth getting ones on the higher floors with sea views. The showers are amazing and the rooms are , as I say, lovely - BUT the beds......too small,... More

This hotel has everything one needs: Great location, private beach, indoor + outdoor pool, activities etc. The breakfast buffet was outstanding. Wifi is included, and worked flawlessly and consistently. Best of all was the impeccable attention to detail from everyone who worked hard to make us feel welcome.

As this was the only SPG hotel in Split, I opted to stay here even though it wasn't directly in the city centre. It was less than 20min away from the bus station. Had I known that they had a free shuttle that picked up from across the bus terminal, would definitely have caught that instead of the taxi, which... More

I stayed at Le Meridien Split in early July in the days leading up to the Ultra Music Festival and used my SPG points to book a room for two nights.

I won't repeat other negative comments available here (many of which I can confirm) but rather add my own experience from yesterday. Some friends from Split visiting me parked their car in the hotel garage. On our way out we found (by trial and error - no posted information) that the payment machine only accepts Croatian coins and no credit... More

I picked this hotel b/c I wanted to give my kids a few days of fun n' sun/downtime in the midst of a fast paced trip through Slovenia, Croatia and Montenegro and since we're SPG members and this property looked new, modern and luxurious for Split we thought it would be a safe bet.

Le Meridien Lav Split is a beautiful hotel. The beach is small rocks or pebbles, Invest in some water shoes! The pool area is lovely, but many children and families there. Breakfast is great, many choices! Cappuccinos are not included in the complimentary breakfast, which seems a bit petty, but they are very tasty. Dinner in the restaurant is alright,... More

From the true sense of a 5 star hotel, I don't think there is one in Split or Podstrana. The Le Meridien is about 7 km from Split in Podstrana. So I would rate our experience as 5 stars and the hotel as 4 to 4 1/2 stars. This is an all inclusive resort with a beautiful infinity pool area... More
