“We loved it and we will be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2011

We have left Villa Maimare few days ago, with a heavy heart.
I wanted to write the review while the memories are still fresh. But to be honest, we had such an unforgettable time, there is no way I am going to forget their warmth and hospitality in a hurry.

The owners of the place, gorgeous Ms Maya, together with her husband and great staff, catered to our every whim and made our stay very comfortable and enjoyable. I want to tell them all THANK YOU again.
We were in a big group (numbers kept changing from day to day, at one point it was 11 family and friends in Villa Maimare). There were a lot of requests, starting from dates and room changes (due to death in the family we had to change dates around few times, and they were most understanding and sympathetic). During our stay we had constant requests, ranging from different cutlery and crockery, use of their fridge, additional bedding for a sleepover..etc.
All our demands were met with a warm smile and nothing was too much of a bother.

Food was great, and can highly recommend it. We had dinner 3 times in Villa Maimare, food was very nice and great value for money. You get a soup, main course, salad and dessert for the same money just a main course would cost you in town. Breakfast was great too. And again, service with the smile which makes all the difference.

Rooms were great, squeaky clean, and comfortable. Strong air-con, super comfortable beds (I am 7 month pregnant so that was very important for me). Mini bar was super efficient as well; it was almost like a little freezer. Perfect for chilling the drinks.

Conveniently they offer a cheap airport pick up too, which has to be mentioned. €12 from Zadar airport, while a local hotel would charge you €50 for the same. The location is great as well, few min stroll to the beach and 2 min stroll to the city centre.

All I can say is that these great people have restored my faith in Croatian customer service, and can highly recommend them.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2009

Make this your only choice of hotel in Biograd. It's newly built and furnished with what you would call Ikea furniture. It cost us a third of the price that it would have cost at Biograds most famous waterside hotels (that have terrible reviews). It's run by a really nice young couple and we were picked up from Zadar airport and taken the 30km's to our hotel for free.

After what seemed like a never ending search for a decent hotel in Biograd I found Villa Mai Mare. The reviews on google and bookings.com are superb and I was a little apprehensive that they were made up. But they were true. The rooms are super clean and well decorated. You get breakfast for free to. It's a very simple breakfast but nothing more than you would expect for the price.

We would happily keep going back to this hotel.

  • Liked — Newly built and clean
  • Disliked — Never anyone on reception (more like an apartment than a hotel)
