ALL INCLUSIVE - don't get too excited coz it is seriously basic! it wasn't expensive but at the same time, it wasn't cheap either. the food in general were very mediocre from breakfast all the way through to dinner, and when i say mediocre, they were ALL very salty to probably disguise the tastelessness of it all. the rooms were awful! hardly any space and felt like i was on a winter holiday as my room was freezing the beach is right outside the hotel which was nice and just be warned that it's not your typical sandy beach but rather ROCKY which wasn't a problem but i was hoping to have known this beforehand and most importantly - SERVICE! this was nowhere to be found!it may as well have been a SELF-SERVICE HOTEL! i've never stayed somewhere with honestly moody and unhelpful staff members! i was a lone traveller and wasn't hoping to make bestfriends with any of the staff members but a little looking after & attentiveness never hurts your travellers. even maybe a smile would've helped! i wanted to WASTE my money on excursions but no one was willing to help me so good thing i didn't a bad experience could've been compensated if staff members were at least friendly so hence why i'm leaving a bad review/rating. maybe a refresher on customer service should be given to the staff and some minor improvements on EVERYTHING else can be done.

I was on a business trip there. Unfortunately only this hotel had free rooms. In a few words about the hotel: A real socialist gem: it completely conveys the feeling of the 70' and 80', only the parking cars testify that we are no loonger in that age. Hot showering is almost a privilege. On the last day we touched the bottom: there was no water in the hotel. :) The mattress was like a trough or a "mobile-trench". The bathroom was dirty (and so does everyting else), even the revious guest's hair was in the shower tray. Breakfast would have been almost acceptable, but since there was no water, also there wasnt coffe, tea or juice. If you're a little more adventrous, sleep in your car instead. :)

Spent 7 nights all-inclusive with our friends. Friendly staff, no entertainment due to coming to the end of season. Pool freezing. Weather was excellent, 100 yards to the beach water was very clear. Food was excellent in the restaurant plenty of choice hot and cold. Room was cleaned and tidy every day. Plenty of wardrobe space. Would go back again.

Booked this hotel but,regretted it afer reading all the poor reviews. Nonetheless, I decided to go ahead with my plans and stay here and I'm so glad I did. The hotel is basic but you get what you pay for so really, it was absolutely fine for the price. All the staff were really friendly and helpful whenever I needed advice or information. The restaurant staff looked a little miserable but I never had to communicate with them so, it never bothered me. The food was great too with a wide variety and something for everyone. I enjoyed my stay here :)

Visited with five girlfriends as an all inclusive package. All-inclusive was extremely disappointing only served soft drinks, coffee and very poor wine and beer as inclusive and that was only until 10:30 pm. The restaurant was only open minimal hours so planning your meals around your holiday was quite difficult closed at 8:30 in the evening. The rooms were extremely basic the only good thing was that we chose family rooms which gave us a bedroom each and lots of space. The shower was absolutely awful it completely flooded the bathroom and the hall way if you used it as a shower so you had to hold it in your hand during your shower. The maid came every day and was very pleasant but she was probably the only staff member who smiled all week. You get what you pay for and it was very cheap so overall the location of the hotel is excellent 50 minutes walk into Zadar centre with good bus train and taxi links the city itself is stunning and definitely worth a visit.
