“Great Time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Really enjoyed the Radisson Blu. The rooms were spacious and clean, the staff friendly, and the hotel itself very trendy. There was the most bizarre yet awesome blue couch in the lobby that looked like a modern art piece. I really liked the hotel restaurant, the breakfast and dinner buffets were very delicious. There is a nice pool and the beach is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel. They even have their own cafe/bar on the beach where you can get chairs for no charge.

A few minor complaints: Our tour group was all in a smaller building off to the side. That itself is not a problem, but there is only one way into this building and one elevator, so we had quite a line to just get through the door into this section of the hotel. Plus it was a little hard to find in the lobby. Also it you're interested in the old city, it's a 30-45 minute walk away or you can take a taxi/bus. I would have liked to have been a little closer to all that, but you can't have a resort hotel in a city. But all in all, a great place to stay!

This large and well designed hotel is located right on the Adriatic coast. The hotel has an enormous wellness zone with hughe pools. You can stay there and spend many hours in the hotel. The city is not that far and beautiful Trogir can also be visited.
Breakfast is great and so is all the rest the restaurant has to offer.

Room Tip: Do have a room with a seaview !

A lovely hotel. Excellent room with a balcony and lovely bathroom! The staff are helpful too. We went during off peak season and the hotel was not so busy....which of course was fine with us!

The location is not so great, it's about 45 minutes stroll into the city centre (however, it is a nice stroll along the coast).

The breakfast buffet was nice. We ended up having dinner most nights at the hotel....and what can I say, the food was amazing!!! However, I would not recommend the cocktails here!!!

We stayed at this hotel after a week on a boat seeing the croatian coast and were so glad we did.

Catching a taxi from the city centre (60 kuna off the meter or 50 kuna on the meter) you are presented with a gorgeous looking hotel in a residencial area close but not too close to the sea (5/10 minutes walk down via a lift/some stairs). The staff in the huge reception hall are very friendly and keen to help, luckily for us I stay a large amount of Radissons and we were upgraded to a suite.

The suite was huge room split into sections by dividing walls, large seating area with it's own telly, bedroom and bathroom with bath in the centre of the room and walk in shower area.
If you can ask for a room with a view of the sea, we had a large balcony with views of the sea and the pool area, perfect to relax and read a book on whilst your partner is having a snooze.

The outside pool area is well laid out and not too busy but if it is warm enough take the 10 minute life ride and walk down to the sea where there is a fairly private bar surrounded by deck chairs next to the lovely croatian sea. There you have a option of ladder down to the sea, or you can relax on the beaches to the side of decking.

Anyway to the Good and Bad things:
Good
- The breakfast - it was extensive with plenty of options for the hungry traveller, so good in fact we went twice on the same day.(we were there for 6am and then for 10am).
The cooked breakfast is an european take on it and very enjoyable,.
- The pool - we didn't spend much time there but it was lovely
- The beach area - perfect for a hot day, but service here is slow and ineffectual, food expensive for what it is.
- the reception staff - keen to help
- Taxis - there are constant supply at the front and were the best we encountered in Split.
- the hotel and room - one of the best Radisson i have ever stayed in

The Bad
- the serving staff at the beach area and in the Caper Grill - disinterested and serving fairly bland food at expensive prices.
- the local area - as mentioned by others the hotel is a bit out of town and there isn't much in the local area to do, but the town is only a taxi ride away.

My girlfriend loved the experience and couldn't be happier. I would definately recommend staying here if you are in Split but take time to look on tripadvisor and have dinner outside the hotel. Even with the taxi you'll probably save money and will enjoy the food more.

Room Tip: Go for the room with a Sea view.

We had a really warm welcome after a long journey. Our room was a nice size and very well equipped, modern and relaxing. In general we found all members of staff to be pleasant and helpful.

The facilities in the hotel were great. We stayed by the pool for the few days we were there and the pool service was top notch.
We walked past the hotel beach section which is across the road and it looked nice too.

The spa is amazing, the therapist was so good, she was very experienced and immediately made you feel at ease.....highly recommend the splurge!

Buffet breakfast covered all the usuals - a great choice and the quality was fresh and good quality.

The only minus is the location - it's a 8-10min taxi ride to the centre or a 25min walk, which is not a bad thing if you just want to relax away from the city buzz - but it would be nice to be closer to the centre to explore in the evening.

Although the price is somewhat likewise, the Radisson Blu is the no. 1 hotel in Split by a mile. The indoor swimming pool is one of the best I have come across; weather permitting the same goes for the outdoor one. The continuity of staff confirms the quality of management. Of the many, friendly staff members I have no option to mention just a few. Mr. Lovrich of management, Ms. Katrina and Mr. Marin of pool and restaurant. The walk to the beach and boulevard probably is not the greatest of fun for the somewhat less mobile. Facilities as mentioned compensate aplenty.

Nothing very Croatian about this hotel, except the excellent staff and local foods.
Sleek, Modern, spacious and very good facilities, including beach patio/bar and swimming in the Adriatic. Room upgrade came without asking. Convenient on-site parking. A somewhat tortuous seafront walk into the Old City; would recommend the 50 kn taxi ride! The latest in Wi-Fi technology at this hotel defeated my two-year old BlackBerry! Spot-on recommendation for a fish restaurant in the Old City

Room Tip: There is more choice if you travel in the off-season
