Summer 2022 and the hotel can not feed their own patrons!! 5 restaurants on the grounds and all are booked out so that the hotel own guests can not get a table for something to eat! Unheard of in any (apparent) 5star hotel!! The hotel and its partner hotels (on the same grounds!) are miles away from town (30min drive)!! Not existing service!! On the note of service, most 5star hotels have Nespresso coffee machines in the bedrooms available but this hotel far from!! We would have expected to have at least a kettle and tea and coffee in the bedrooms!! Nothing!!

We had a great day using the pools, loungers and spa facilities, including very good massages. We had to check out of our Zadar (Old town) Airbnb at 10am, and our flight was late evening. We had spent the last couple of days in Zadar and fancied something a bit different before ending our holiday, so had a look for local spa's. This hotel & spa is about 30 minutes taxi from the seafront of the old town (near to sea organ), and cost us 155 kuna using Uber. You have to book in advance, and there is a barrier at the entrance to the resort where they check the names of the guests who they are expecting before they let the taxi's through. When we arrived, we were directed to the spa reception. Payment is taken on arrival. When we booked over the phone, we were told that they charge €60 per person for access to the facilities for the day, but as we wanted massages, this is reduced to €35 per person (minimum 50 minute treatments). They were happy to store our suitcases for the day and handed us each a beach bag (which we got to keep, a lovely touch, even if it is free marketing) containing a towel, robe, flip flops and a locker key. We were then shown around the facilities and the spa by a different member of staff (who did not seem all too happy about having to give us a tour, and said very little on the way around). At this point, we had not been told where to go for our massages (which were in 1 hour), so when I saw a sign for 'treatments', I asked if this is where we went for our massages, and he answered 'yes'. FYI there is an un-manned desk in the black spa area. This is not a reception desk. If you need help whilst in the spa, you need to go back into the white area and the main spa reception where you pay on arrival. I think this is a design flaw and they no longer use the desk in the black spa as a reception desk. The pools and outdoor areas are lovely. We were there in high-season, but there were more than enough loungers to choose from. We went up to the treatment area for our massages, but started to worry when 15 minutes passed and no-one came to get us. I walked back to the spa reception (white area), and was told that we were supposed to come back to the main spa reception to meet with our massage therapists. I explained that not only had the receptionist not told us this, but we had been told by another member of staff to go to the treatment area. She apologised, but seemed annoyed about this (not necessarily with us, but at her colleagues, understandably). We both had very good massages - my partner had the relax and unwind (basically full body deep tissue), I had the 'tailor made'. Mine was not what I was expecting, as I had asked for back and reflexology, but ended up with a full body massage - I'm not complaining! Comparing notes with my partner, I think we both had the exact same massage, and even though we were late starting, we both had the full massage duration, which we were pleased about. We then went down to the spa area. We went into the floating bed relaxation area first - I loved this and fell asleep, but my partner was less comfortable with the swaying beds and twitching curtains... The biotherm steam (I think this was the name) was my favourite. The best steam room I have ever been in, they spray hot 'rain' over you, which I found amazing. I lay down on the slab at the far end of the room and let the spray fall over me, which was a great experience. We did not find the 'salt steam' and the bio sauna was not working. The Finnish and Earth saunas were also great - extremely hot!! It was a relief to have a cold pool which I used to cool off after using the sauna/steam (after a rinse in the shower of course - where there is shampoo and body wash). It is a nudist spa (which is a first for us!) A little nerve wracking to begin with, but it is not busy and so didn't feel particularly uncomfortable. Although no shorts/bathing suits are allowed, there are plenty of towels on offer to wrap around your waist if you want to, but obviously not in the spa pools or wet steams. You can swap your used towel for a new one at one of the self serve racks. There is also plenty of water and tea in the relaxation areas, so no need to take water with you. We had lunch at the bistro - I had sushi and my partner had the vegan burger, both were excellent! The spa itself is very impressive, and having visited for a day, I would consider it as a hotel to stay at in the future, but not in school holidays, as there were far too many screaming children around for our liking. I think you could probably avoid it if you used the outdoor area in the spa area only. If it weren't for being misadvised by the spa receptionist/member of staff showing us around, we would have rated it a 5. If you're thinking of doing the same thing, its just under 40 minutes to the airport and cost 228 kuna using Uber (there are far fewer uber drivers in the area, so if you are worried about getting the the airport on time, I would advise booking a taxi with the hotel - it took about 15 minutes for someone to accept our request on the app). Hope this helps some of you wanting to go for the day - we were surprised how few reviews there were for day guests and were not too sure what to expect, hence the thorough review.

This is not a 5 star hotel. Max 3. It’s starts with entering trough the barrier. They don’t say welcome, but they open the window and say rude Yes? Then they can’t find you and have to spell your name 5 times. Then the reception, no doorman and rude reception lady with obviously no experience at all. The interior is old, dated and broken. There is loud music in all restaurants so you can’t talk. Food is ok though. Rooms are a total joke. Old beds with sheets that don’t even fit. They use double sheets for a singe cover?? Airco does not work so very hot and lot of noise only. (You can’t sleep for sure) . Beds are very uncomfortable. We think al lot of reviewers are fake and bought by the management. Pools are dirty and Tiles are loos and damaged, so you can hurt yourself. Beds at pool very old and dirty again! They also think that all clients are German!! Towel boy again rude and clear not enjoying his work at the pool. Max 3 star hotel maybe 2! This has nothing to do with holidays after a year of working at home. Here you are a walking ATM for rude management, nothing more nothing less!!

My stay in this hotel was wonderful, the hotel is really nice, spa is amazing, and the location is perfect. What really stands out is personnel. Each and every person working there went above and beyond to help us, starting with wonderful Katarina from guest relations, who was exceptionally kind and helpful at all times. I’d also like to compliment service staff (Ema and Vanja especially) who were all awesome and very friendly.

This was our second stay in the hotel and definitely the last one! We stayed in this hotel in 2020 and already at that time there were many things that were not at the level (e.g. extremely limited choice of food, no vegan options at all, poor service at the breakfast & dinner, poor service at the reception, etc.). We thought that this is solely due to measures related to Covid-19 so we gave this hotel another chance this year. Unfortunately, we ended up even more frustrated and disappointed. This second time, everything was worse. If I list only few things: - Our room was overheated during the day so the room was extremely hot (it seems that the AC was only set to heating - it was October) so we all really suffered when our 8 months baby took a nap in the afternoon - The phone didn't work and we pointed out this to the reception 3 times. They didn't take any action until I went there for the 4th time and raised my tone; - Staff at the reception is not very welcoming, they seem to have enough of everything; - Staff at the dinner is very unprofessional and they still need to learn, especially how to deal with guests, - Food choice is extremely limited (for breakfast & dinner), - No vegan options at all (we pointed out this to the staff and they said that they will prepare a meal for us on the last day. Guess what, they prepared us a classic salat! We will never forget that experience); - Rooms and facilities are extremely used (curtains were full of holes, door hand holders were falling off, the toilet leaked, phone didn't work, etc.); - ... I will rather stop here as there is really not much positive to say. This is certainly not a 5 star hotel! The hotel management needs to wake up and do something about their low quality service, unprofessional staff, limited choice of food (no vegan options) and facilities that need to be refreshed. We wish you all the best in your future work where you will never see us again!

Hello, I must say that I have stayed in this hotel prior to this last time, at least 7 times and my review has been up to 9 until now. However, during my last stay, few days ago, which was also the last days before the hotel closes for a period of 1 month i had the worst experience. We booked for two days ,and booked dinners. 1th dinner was buffet and i had fish and risotto. Which was not at the level of this hotel, and not for the price of 35 e per person, but okey. Exactly 12 h after dinner i had stomach problems, which took exactly 24 h which i was in room, not feel at all good. This was classical food poisoning, as I am doctor and i know the symptoms. At first the hotel said I am the only one, however the next when I was leaving I found out other people had the same problems. In the end we did not have to pay for dinner and one day which I thinks is really not the point. Because the whole experience has been really not good. I write this in hope that this will not happen again and that the hotel will take steps to minimize this from happening. Also when it happens, which is also possible - you cannot make it write with not paying the dinner or one stay. I look forward in visiting the hotel in near future. All the best.

1st off this place is beautiful and the views of the ocean are absolutely lovely! The staff were attentive, very helpful and friendly. I had the pleasure of touring the spa which is one of the largest in all of Croatia. If you are a big spa lover, this is the hotel for you!! The facilities were clean and well kept. They have a very interesting concept between the light and dark part of the spa where the black side of the spa is nude while the white is clothed. As someone who went to the spa everyday of my stay, I had some of the best massages and treatments I've ever had! The staff was very professional and friendly about their work. I highly recommend getting the hammam treatment! In addition the 2 seaside restaurants that are on the resort were wonderful, we did not eat 1 bad meal and the views were gorgeous, right next to the ocean great at sunset especially. Both at the hotel and at the restaurants it really felt like the staff tried to make the experience special, going the extra mile with service for a nobody like me. Couldn't help but tip people left and right. We definitely plan on coming back to this wonderful resort with friends and family in tow, cant recommend it enough!

All staff very helpful and generous. Excellent facilities with very colorful, spa-like colors and decor. Buffet breakfast was excellent, even a fresh fruit juice bar. Pool has an indoor-outdoor feature and you can relax indoors on chaise lounges even in poor weather. Nice access to beach. A unique feature of our room is that the tub and sink area are enclosed with sheer drapes and the toilet area has a door. Nice bright blue/sea like decor.
