We are just back from 2 weeks in Opatija, Kvarner Hotel. Firstly we had excellent weather and as a previous message indicated we had 3 storms mainly at night...and trust us you will welcome the rain! Opatija is around 30C at the moment and very little breeze. Beautiful blue skies.
Hotel Kvarner was exactly what we expected, decor seen better days but loved the building and especially our hotel room terrace view overlooking the sea (extra fee)! The ONLY critique is that there is no air conditioning in the rooms, and if you are travelling this time of year and have a low tolerance for heat and humidity then we would suggest this issue will be hard going!
The park Angolina next to the hotel has almost every night either an outdoor movie, or music. Chuck Berry was only just there. Volosko village is 25 mins walk up the lungomare - a very chilled out bar called Kontiki with good cocktails. Plenty restaurants.
Croatia once again never fails, it is still very good value, beautiful coastline and lovely people!
