This is a wonderful, wonderful hotel! We booked a standard room on the ground floor and was delighted to be upgraded to the second floor, with a fantastic view of Lone Bay from the balcony of our room (many thanks to the hotel management - we really appreciated the upgrade!).
The entire hotel (bedrooms, bathrooms, restaurants and other public areas) is beautifully designed in a modern style, with high quality furnishings. Despite being fully occupied, the hotel did not feel crowded at all. The outdoor pool area is lovely, with sunbeds placed all around the pool and hotel lawn overlooking the bay. Huge umbrellas provided shade for those of us who do not necessarily enjoy lying continuously under the sun.
The hotel has a small, intimate spa, providing all the usual treatments. The after-treatment room is quiet and tranquil - I spent quite a lot of time here reading my novels after a relaxing massage. Thank you to Paola, Masha and Koryalka (sorry - I don't remember the spelling) for looking after me so well.
Monte Mulini hotel guests are allowed access to the facilities at the next door Lone Hotel. There is a relatively well-equiped gym and an indoor swimming pool there, both of which I put to good use.
I especially enjoyed running in the national park located right next to the hotel, every morning before breakfast. The breakfast buffet at the Mediterraneo Restaurant is perhaps not the very best, but definitely more than adequate with a large choice of juices, cereals, pastries/muffins and a selection of cooked items freshly prepared upon demand.
My husband and I enjoyed two wonderful meals at the Wine Vault Restaurant. The dishes were creative, well-executed and above all, absolutely delicious! We were attended to by extremely professional staff - Ivica and Danijel both deserve special mention here. On our second visit (the last night of our holiday) we were entertained by gentle live music that provided just the right ambience for a perfect evening. The restaurant had arranged some lounge armchairs and sofas just beyond the dining tables on that occasion - what a great way to enjoy after-dinner drinks - this was a fitting end to a truly memorable holiday!
