The hotel on the island of Ciovo is just 15 minutes from Split airport, and is in an excellent location, as the island is quiet and laid back.
We were in the original part of the hotel, and not in the new building across the road, and a few minor items let the hotel down,
Our room was on the top floor which meant the sloping roof took out a huge chunk of the space inside the room, which meant bending down to cross the room, past the bed.The bed was very soft as were the pillows!
There were some broken tiles on the shared balcony and had just been left, the top floor rooms didn’t have any lights on the balcony, the toilet roll holder was broken and looked like several previous repairs had been attempted, the light in bathroom had no cover, and the tv didn’t work.
We reported the TV twice to the receptionist on the early shift but had no joy, we later reported it to the late shift receptionist, when we also had to report a light out. This time the waiter was sent up to change the bulb, and tell us the tv had been broken for a while and they were waiting for an outside contractor to come to fit the aerial.
The young receptionist who did the late shift was very helpful, friendly and spoke English; she booked the trips for us using the local company Portal (who did excellent trips by the way!). The two young waiters and the waitress were also very friendly and helpful, and spoke some English.
We didn’t request another room because, the hotel was full and also the view from the balcony was fantastic, well worth paying the extra for the sea view.
From the balcony you see the hotel garden, the mountains and the sea, plus some fantastic sunsets. The rooms were clean and were serviced daily and had a decent sized fridge and air con.
Despite being full the dining areas were never crowded, and there was never any queuing for the food.
The breakfast was the usual cereal, salad, meats, cheese, fruit, sausage and egg etc.
The evening meals were a selection of meat and fish, and we didn’t have any problems with the choice or quality.
There is a supermarket below the hotel and one further up the road; there are a hand full of bars and restaurants within walking distance.
To reach the nearest lively town, Trogir, there is a bus or the better option of a boat taxi, which takes 20 minutes and costs 15 Kuna each way. The frequency dropped on our second week as it was the close season.
There is also a boat from Trogir to Split, which takes about an hour, 25 kuna.
The beach is just across the road from the hotel, and is a shingle beach, never too busy, and near the beach bar there are loungers to hire for 30 kuna a day.
The hotel pool only has 3 loungers and a couple of swing chairs which is a shame as there is plenty of room for a few loungers.
The locals were friendly and there were no pushy types trying to entice you into their shops / bars.
Have the sea view rooms as the sunsets are awesome
