My friends and I booked Uvala Scott on the spur of the moment right before leaving for croatia and ended up regretting it. It was cheaper than everywhere else but it DEFINITELY showed. Rooms are bare bones and can be dirty (mine wasn't, my friends' was), there is a disgusting little disco next door that plays god awful music at an alarming volume at all hours of the night, and the breakfast is heinous. I had no idea such atrocities could be committed against coffee, tea, and basic breakfast fare (and I will usually eat just about anything). One plus side was that all the people I talked to at the front desk were conversant in several languages, polite, cheerful, and helpful.

If you are just looking for a place to sleep and are really budget concious this may be the place for you. But, if it isn't the peak of tourist season and other places are available, by all means stay elsewhere. As a disclaimer, I usually don't care at all what my hotels are like. However, I do like to sleep and at Uvala Scott there seemed to be constant noise at night from one source or another and it really bugged.

The beaches on Krk are really nice and Plitvice National Park (two hours inland) is phenomenal, a must see.

I stayed in this hotel as part of a package tour; I had a sense of foreboding after reading some highly critical reviews before the trip, but as it was a package tour, I had no choice and hoped for the best... Actually, the hotel was far worse than the reviews suggested. I am frequent traveler and stayed in literally hundreds of hotels throughout Europe and the rest of the world, but this was without doubt the worst hotel I ever experienced.

The hotel is a horrible communist era concrete structure consisting of several blocks, built over fifty years ago and never renovated. The paint is peeling, the pipes are rusting, the doors are warped, the walls are thin and some of the windows are broken and missing. The seafront is like and abandoned garbage tip - discarded furniture, kitchen equipment and sundry rubbish litter what should be the beach.

On arrival I was assigned a room in the Oleander block; the room had an interconnecting door to the neighbouring room that was so flimsy that one could hear the person next door breathing. The room was dirty, there were dust balls all over the floor. The beds were not made, there was only a blanket and a folded sheet on each bed, and no sheet cover. The window connecting to the bathroom was missing, so there was absolutely no light, sound (or smell...) insulation between the bathroom and the sleeping area. The furniture was minimal, and what there was was dirty, scratched and broken. Naturally, there was no TV, no telephone, no internet... The bathroom was in reasonable shape, and the view to the water was pleasant though.

A request for a change of room to the extremely surly receptionist lady resulted in the reluctant offer of an even worse dark, dinghy room in another block that was even more filthy and had three beds, all of them sagging and impossible to sleep in. So I stayed in glorious Oleander.

Dinner consisted of a 'buffet' of stodgy fare, ladled out by hostile kitchen staff. What there was was continuously running out, and there was a permanent queue for everything. Breakfast was the same - limited and very poor quality food, served inefficiently, and always running out. The principle seemed to be - provide the minimum of everything and whet it runs out wait until there is a huge queue. The lines for coffee (not real coffee of course but some nasty chicory concoction) was never less than ten metres long.

The piece de resistance came next morning - there was no hot water to shower in, in any of the rooms in the entire block. Complaints to the receptionist were met with a cheery reply 'This is an old hotel, only two stars, so what do you expect?'. Silly us, expecting to be able to shower in a hotel... The tour guide also complained, and was promised that there will be hot water the next morning. There wasn't.

The hotel is part of the Jadran chain, and they run some quite nice hotels in Optija and Lovran that I stayed in before. The Hotel Uvala Scott is in such a poor state and is so badly run that it should be avoided. Staying here was like an experience in time travel, living in a world of ugliness, discomfort, scarcity and surliness for a few days... not recommended!

My wife and I stayed at the Uvala Scott Hotel from 25 June - 01 July 2006.
Positives: rooms are clean, proximity to food and "beach" is convenient, and price can be OK.
Negatives: isolated location, "beach" is more like concrete slabs, bad location (view of smokestacks), food quality is fair, service is mixed.

Bottom line: If you like staying at the same place your whole vacation, food freshness isn't important, and you want to sunbath on concrete or rocks, then this place might be good for you. For the money that you spend, you're better off staying in the village of Krk on the island Krk.
Uvala Scott is on the mainland side of the bridge connecting the island of Krk. The view on one side is the bridge, and the other side a large oil refinery with belching smoke from smokestacks.
If you do day trips on Krk, you'll have to pay about $8USD every time you take the bridge, plus gas, maybe parking.
The food at Uvala Scott stays pretty much the same each day and don't expect much fresh fruit or vegetables. If you like dessert, you'll have to compete with old ladies waiting in line for the server to bring out a tray.
The service is mixed: we had a good experience with the weekend shift with a courteous young man (Robert). A grouchy man that was unresponsive worked the front desk on weekdays. Our cleaning lady was very friendly and a pleasure to talk to. We also had a grouchy young lady as the restaurant hostess, but a very nice man managing the buffet trays.
