Like many others, I stupidly booked this hotel thinking it had been renovated during lockdown but trust me, it wasn’t! The hotel group Valamar have clearly just done the very basics to take some decent photos for their website, the reality is very very different. The reception had some very minor modernisation but the bedrooms were untouched from at the the 70s. Very old beds and mattresses, wallpaper, furniture, bathroom. Don’t think it’s like an 80s style holiday resort in Spain because that would be luxery in comparison. It was so bad that my boyfriend and I checked in after travelling for half the day, saw the room and general state of the place and immediately asked for a refund, despite having found no alternative place to stay. The receptionist was very apologetic and said many people felt the same way and had also asked for refunds. It’s hard to describe how bad it is. I don’t often leave reviews but I would feel really bad if I didn’t try to stop anyone else from ending up here. It’s GRIM and I’m actually shocked that it gets away with staying open. Please do yourself a favour and don’t book this hotel. I don’t even want to think about how bad the food must be.

Everything was perfect. We are very satisfied with the service and content of the hotel. The employees are very kind and smiling. Everything an average family needs on vacation. The rooms have been renovated ... The only thing I would like next year is to have a mini fridge in the rooms.

To start off: this is WAY BETTER than the reviews show. I guess their rennovation from 2021 was the main reason for this. Anyhow this place was great! We had everything we needed and all that we asked for; the food was great and the staff extraordinary! This hotel of Valamar is more family inclined but my boyfriend and I enjoyed it anyhow. The surroundings are truly spectacular, and its great to be able to go to the sea so quick after breakfast on the balcony! Another great thing is the transportaton options that the hotel provides: from airport or to the city centre with the taxi boat! who were kind enough to take us even not during their hours. Really nice place!!

Good value for the money. Stayed 12 nights. Staff was friendly and the room was ok. We had breakfast and lunch, food was good but every day the same. I ate those pancakes every day. 😉 But on holiday i just need to breathe tht fresh air with smell of pine trees, my own space at the beach, crystal clear sea and peace. And the hotel has it all. 😊

Everything was perfect. Food, hotel accomodation, staff, the hotel situation in Stari Grad. Around hotel is many private beaches that worth to visit. Same as the cities Stari Grad and Hvar which is ca 20 min far from the hotel.
