Our stay was for 7 nights. The staff at the hotel was remarkably kind, helpful and the service was excellent. If there was any problem they would take care of it. The beautiful garden in front, little pathway to the beach, fig trees, pines, lavender and rosemary bushes... garden of eden :-) The room was a decent size with AC.... More

Had a wonderful stay at this modest but nice and clean hotel. Staff was absolutely welcoming and friendly. The manager (cannot remember her name) was very professional and gave us the VIP treatment. Rooms are on the smaller side but were extremely clean and well appointed. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful. Good value!

We stayed in the annex building which is newly renovated. The rooms and especially the bathrooms are tiny but everything's there what you need. Located in walking distance to the town in a pine forest is very convenient. They offer guided hiking tours to small beaches which was a great experience and really beautiful. The beach in front o the... More

It's well renovated, rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. The staff are nice and helpful (I asked for printing an important email and the reception lady did that for me). The breakfast buffet is very nice. BUT I had chosen this hotel because I thought the beach was somehow "private", which was strongly suggested on the hotel website. Alas, the... More

The hotel is in a good position within walking distance from the town of Cres. The sea is excellent although in June/July a little cool. The hotel is clean and all the staff excellent. The bedrooms are a little bit small for a 3 week stay. The only criticism is that the food served in the restaurant needs to be... More

Excellent hotel. New rooms well soundproofed. Beautiful location in the pine forest on the sea and near the center. Breakfast and dinner on a wonderful terrace. Staff friendly and helpful. Kitchen improvable.

After many years I have visited this hotel with my family. Now a day's this is a nice quiet hotel with nice renovated rooms and firts class staff when comes to hospitality. Good location for the kids and starting point for local trips. Only a pool is missing :-( Otherwise VERY satisfied.

We stayed in this hotel in July, in the apartment building. Although the room was small when trying to open a travel cot for our youngest child, the room was new and the opportunity to have breakfast and dinner for an economic fee made a great difference to our holiday. The only comment would be that there was no place... More

While the hotel has been recently renovated, the rooms are still quite small and the common areas are lacking in ambiance. The hotel is at the beachfront but the area is not private and one must rent a beach chair. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, but the hotel lacked a nice area in which to have an afternoon/evening... More

Nice hotel, friendly waiters and reception. Close to the rocky beach. No service for umbrella and beds at the sea, but you can rent a bed for 25 kuna a day - best in the shade of the trees in the garden of the hotel. Breakfast really ok - maybe you will miss fresh fruits. Rooms with AC.
