After a long journey from Split airport we were very pleased with our hotel. The room was modern and boutique style. However, we would have preferred a separate bathroom rather than a curtained off sink and shower. The pool area was clean and there were good activities during the day. The food was very good and we enjoyed the entertainment at the bar each evening. The beach was busy and there was a pleasant walk to the neighbouring town of Markaska. You could also walk past the crowded beach to restaurants and a marina. We had a great time in Tucepi and we cannot wait to return to beautiful Croatia.
The location is super, right on the beach with sun and shade. A twenty minute stroll through a tree lined path along the beach brings you to the center of Tučepi. The food in the self service restaurant is good and in the Oliva restaurant (extra cost) it is excellent. We had a Junior Suite with sea view, The room was huge but the sink/shower area and the separate toilet room were tiny. The towel shelf next to the shower is at a height of two meters impossible for a woman of normal height to reach. There is no desk in the room where you can sit and do paper or computer work. The air conditioner didn't work even after we called for service.
We had spacious suite. I was with my husband and daughter. Very clean hotel and good breakfast. Lots of choices. I didn’t like the dinner so much. The best thing was the beach. We visited Split old town and Krka- nationalpark, both worth of visiting. There was also hiking trails to mountains and Makarska.
No faults whatsoever, from the minute we arrived we were greeted with scented face clothes to cool our faces and a beautiful drink. Our room was gorgeous, spacious, beautifully decorated, immaculately clean with a fantastic sea view. The food was lovely as were the staff. We went for a walk and got soaked to the skin. The staff ran off and brought us warm towels which was lovely. The Spa was fantastic, had pedicure and manicure which was truly professional. We loved this holiday.
We stayed at the TUI Blue Jadran near Tučepi on the Makarska Riviera, Croatia for four nights, sandwiched between two nights in Dubrovnik and two nights in Split. While the hotel’s fresh, modern decor may not be to everyone’s taste and lacks a traditional luxe feel, we LOVED this hotel. What makes it special: THE STAFF. First and foremost, staff are exceptional and nothing is too much trouble. Particular mention to Bose in the restaurant, Ivana on reception, and Jakov. Oh! And Marta who welcomes guests to the restaurant and remembers everyone’s room number. Quite a skill! THE FOOD. Oh my days, food here is incredible. There is SO much choice and the quality is phenomenal. I’m wheat intolerant (gluten free) and vegetarian and eating out can be hard but not here – absolutely tons of choice and the staff will even cook certain dishes to order (speak to Bose!). The show kitchen is a particularly nice touch and the appetisers and desserts are beautiful. THE POOLSIDE AND TERRACE. Such a large, well-maintained and spotless area. Choice of two pools and the beach just down the steps with tons of loungers and umbrellas. Recommend catching the light at golden hour and the sunset from the terrace or further down the beach (see my pics). Downsides: literally the only thing that’s worth mentioning is that rooms on one side of the hotel – while being larger bedrooms – have pretty tiny balconies which aren’t private – you can see right across into your neighbours’ space. For this reason we asked to move to a room on the other side of the hotel, which had a more private and larger balcony (albeit a smaller – though just as nice – room). Also worth mentioning that while tap water is free (and completely drinkable) in the bar upstairs, it’s hotel policy not to service it with dinner. Instead, you have to pay for bottled water (or go without). Drink plenty during the day if this bothers you. In summary, a perfect choice for a beach holiday in Croatia. If we return to this area, the TUI Blue Jadran will be top of our list. …
