we were attending our sons wedding in beautiful Croatia, and this was the hotel they had picked to stay in . so a lot of the wedding guested stayed here aswell
Aloverly hotel, open and clean , if a little meandering avenues of corridors to get to your rooms
Our room was on the ground floor with a seaview and large patio, all as expected for a 4/5 star accommodation --- a massive double bed , and a clean spacious bathroom -- with the usual bath/shower --- which I always find a nightmare getting in and out of -- why not just have a walk in shower--- most only want a shower , why have the dangers of falling out of the bath !!!
The pool area was a little squashed with all the sunbeds, and at peak times difficult to get one --- we always seem to have the problem of the phantom towel and book on reserved beds that are unused for hours
Plenty of shaded parasol;s , but as I said a little "cosy"--- why not use the lawns ??
We were on half board, and found the dining room a comfortable place to eat in -- avoid the inviting outside areas for dining as the wasps are a swarm and bomarding your meal at all times -- also they nest in the sugar pots !!
The food was very good , lots of choice, well cooked and restocked frequently and delivered with a smile --- special praise must go to the omelette cook -- a happy smile very morning -- it lit up the day -- thankyou
Our problem was at the evening meal ---- asking for tap water was met with difficulties -- and were told that the bottled water was only available -- at £2.50 a go !!!!-- we dug our heels in and demanded free tap water as is expected in any good hotel in the world --- and after a bit of a show down with the restaurant manager , we were given bottles of water without payment .
we had to endure this standoff every night--in which we always got the water --- but it made us feel uncomfortable -- I don't want to have to do this in any good hotel -- and this really spoilt our overall experience
The location of this hotel is a little away from the main attractions , but there is a good bus service and good taxi pick ups
All in all , I found this hotel a little difficult because of the stairs , steps and walking distances -- but that is due to my mobility problems --- anyone else with similar problems may find it difficult aswell, --- there are lifts and wheelchair access, which are all very helpful, ---
A good hotel, which in most respects we enjoyed our stay------ just didn't like the "water wars "
