The hotel is very old, needs renovation (about 20 years ago), very poor furnishing, only one chair. We reserved a room with a balcony and a view to the seeside and we got a balcony 50× 120cm, so we could put the only chair on the balcony with a veiw on the parking. So the second person sat on the floor beside the open balcony door
The food was ok for 3*
The staff was very nice and polite in the restaurant, but not so friendly at the reception desk. When we asked iff the room was as we ordered, they claimed that every room in their hotel is fine.
So, what is their criteria, how do the people live, iff they claim, that there rooms are super and fine. Look at the pictures I added.
I realy havent been in such a room in decades.

This hotel is as described, it's clean and tidy, comfy beds and the food is good.
It's situated right on the beach and the sunsets are pretty amazing.
There is a bus stop close by where you can travel very cheaply to get out and see the area.
If I could make a small change it would be to have a kettle in your room or somewhere you can get an early cuppa and a few more vegitaion choices on the menu.

I was a little apprehensive after reading the reviews but was pleasantly surprised.
Rooms are basic but clean.
Housekeeping come round daily and ask if anything is needed.
The food was fine, hot and plenty of it.
However I would of like a bit more vegetarian choice, but I didn't go hungry and had plenty to eat.
The hotel is right on the beach and it is beautiful.
Staff are friendly and accommodating.
We have chatted to a few couples here and none of them have anything to complain about.

Rooms were clean. Hotel was slightly dated but for the price it is expected. Limited options on the all inclusive drinks. Could have done with more variety of foods in the buffet each day was the same and food quality wasn’t to great. We ate out for lunch and tea to avoid the buffet, but maybe if there is an option to stay room only I would recommend as food and drinks out is very cheap. For a 3* I think it was pretty okay. Good location from Zadar. No sun beds near pool only tables and chairs.

I’m currently staying here with my two daughters and it is extremely unsafe . My daughter fell and slipped on the cracked tile floor today and her foot was lacerated on the broken tiles .
There was blood all over the floor and tiles as well e staff . We had to pay for taxi to hospital . We waited for four hours and my daughter was given local anthestic and had four stitches .
She needs to go back to the hospital in three days time .
I was billed 1250 kuna which is over £125.
The hotel staff made it clear hotel wouldn’t cover bill. I was barely asked if we were ok in our return. When I asked to speak to management I was told he may be in the office in morning . This has been the worst hotel I have ever stayed in over 25 years of travelling.
I pointed out to the workers how unsafe the fabric of the hotel was and they agreed
.
The stay here has completely ruined our holiday.
My daughter is nine and this has been a total disaster . DO NOT STAY

Rooms are basic and even though I upgraded i don't see there was one.
3 meals per day at set times and no snacks inbetween or available to buy.
Lovely view of sea from the pool area. Pool and bar very clean.
Cocktails are not that great especially when buying them.
Air con on but not noticeable in the room so very muggy. (We slept with gallons door open for a little breeze)
Can only turn on or off. No individual temperature control.
Meals are in the other building just through the carpark and sadly we had a school trip of some description wanting to eat the same time as us which was off putting.
Tables and chairs are set up by the pool with the sun loungers down a few stairs on the grassed area. (Unfortunately, they are roped together so not much movement)
They are mostly under some trees so you are either in the sun or not.
They do come to clean the rooms everyday but we declined as wanted our windows left open for the breeze.

I chose this hotel without any expectations. Honestly, he surprised me. Hotel as a hotel, average. But, the service. We chose the all-inclusive service and the food was fantastic. We were with a 1-year-old baby and everything was great for him. The beach is OK, in the period we were there, it was not crowded at all, the water was even suitable for swimming. Rooms are cleaned every day, new towels also every day. Foods are labeled for allergens, so you can easily avoid any discomfort.

Hotel Donat is a few metres from the beach. The pool area of the hotel is immaculate, with tables all around. The reception team were friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms are a little dated, but very clean and comfortable with a lovely balcony and could not ask for better views. ( others were not so lucky )The dining area had so much choice, that something should appeal to all tastes. We tried various local dishes which were all enjoyable. The staff at the hotel, worked tirelessly to keep all areas spotlessly clean. There are loads of sun beds on a grassed area, which are lovely, if you manage to get one. We watched at 5am, people starting to put towels on them and by 7am they were all gone, so be quick!! The one thing which was a bit off putting for us, was that you were not able to get tea / coffee until breakfast at 7.30am. It would have been lovely to either have a kettle in the room or a machine available early morning.

complete let down. The staff were extremely rude, hotel was dated and dirty. The pool was freezing cold and around it was dangerous as the bricks were coming up from the ground. There was absolutely no control in the lobby, kids kicking balls
