We stayed at the Premium appartement Sol Amfora from 30.06. until 10.07. 2011. These appartements are a part of a big resort Stella Maris. The premium appartement has 2 separated bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1 WC, living area combined with dining room and very small kitchen- not very well equiped (NO TOASTER, NO BOILING KETTLE available). terrase is big, but unfortunatelly no privacy at all. (See my picture) THE TERRASE IS BIG, BUT UNFORTUNATELLY NO PRIVACY AT ALL- SEE MY PICTURE. The terrase is separated from the other part of the appartement with a small wall up to your weist only. All the mebers of the other appartement do look into your plate!! It is very irritating. The appartements are build very close to each other and in the evenings, you have no chance to relax. Resort is in a very nice park and partly a forest. Well mantained a good for shadow and nice walks. Shops and restaurants are available.
The resort is mainly ccupied by families with children. The split of the visitors is about 50% Russians, 30% split between Slovenien, Czech, Slovak...20% German speaking tourist and very few English tourists.
Resort Stella Maris has number of attractions for children. UNFORTUNATELLY NOBODY TAKES CARE OF THE HYGIENIC RULES at the swimming pools. A lot of children is not using the swimming pants, simply naked running around. I ALSO EXPERIANCED A LADY CLEANING THE DIRTY BOTTOM OF HER BABY UNDER THE WATTERFALL AT THE WATTER PLAYGROUND FOR CHILDREN!!!!!! This is closed circuit of watter !!! This was a big dissapoitment for us.
Beaches are small stones or concrete plates with a bit of sand.
The other part of this big resort are Meliá Istrian villas. This resort has far more privacy and relaxation. In case we would return to this resort, we would definitely pick the Meliá Istrian villas.
