We originally booked for a one-night stay, and enjoyed it so much that we returned for a further night later on in our trip. The hotel is a couple of minutes from the sea (or if you prefer, the Milenj 4-Flowers hotel just behind the Agava has an indoor/outdoor pool that Agava customers can use for free). While the hotel is in a central location, its "beach" (a rocky strip with space for sunbathing and where boats are moored) is a reasonable distance from the main beach area in Opatija which makes for a far more pleasant and less crowded swim. A sea kayak rental service is also available.
Our first night was in a standard room on the third floor - a very spacious room complete with king sized bed, a living room-esque area, a balcony, and even a welcome bowl of fruit. This room is worth a 5-star rating.As we booked the second night on impulse, there weren't many rooms left and we could only get an economy room on the second floor, which was very adequate given the price. The only gripes we had about the economy room was that the air conditioning seemed to shut off partway through the night and the room became almost unbearably hot, and the wi-fi reception was fairly poor (though it had been excellent one floor up). Breakfast was very good on both days. I can't praise the hotel reception staff enough - on both visits the (male) manager on duty and the other (female) staff member were more than accommodating, and went out of their way to help.
