Mare Nostrum
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Sveti Petar
Reviewed August 22, 2010

This hotel has fantastic views is right on the beach, very calm and peaceful. Good breakfast. However we arrived just before 2pm and were told our room wasn't ready. We were told it was due to the cleaning company not having delivered the sheets. We sat on the terrace and had a drink. An hour laterand still no room so we ordered lunch and more drinks. We had no car so were rather stuck. Eventually we were told it was ready after 5pm. Nothing was taken off the bill..a small gesture would have helped.

family run hotel with about 20 rooms located between major road with heavy traffic and a very narrow pebble beach. all rooms with balcony and (partial) sea view. Rooms are very small with only basic furniture but dozens of mosquitos. A/C didn't work and no fridge to chill drinks or snacks.
Breakfast buffet was also very basic and you need to be there early to have any choices.
This hotels was one of the cheaper ones in the area but this part of Croatia's coast isn't really worth a stoppover.

We just "happened" upon this hotel after a full day of driving and sightseeing and boy were we lucky! We were greeted warmly at this small hotel right on the sea and spent a quiet evening on the terrace overlooking the blue, blue water. The owners (family owned) went out of their way several times for us. They were always helpful and gracious. The breakfast buffet was a nice addition to a terrific accomodation. For us, this was all a wonderful surprise package wrapped up with a pretty bow. We would definitely return!

About 25 minutes bus from Zadar bus station. If arriving by bus make sure you ask driver to drop you at the bus stop just as you come into Sveti Peter. Then it’s about a 5 minute walk to hotel but there is a lack of footpath along the main road.
10 minutes from Zadar airport by taxi. Around 2000 Kn.

Hotel rooms are very clean with balcony. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

Breakfast is very good. Choice of cereals, yogurt, fruit, juices, tea and coffee, bread rolls, toast, jams, boiled eggs and chocolate croissants.
Main meals are of a good standard and reasonably priced (even with the Pound Sterling as it is) working on a rate of £1 – Kn8

The Mare Nostrum is great if you want to get away from it all and relax.
Hotel is very well situated on the waters edge 5 metres from the decking area of the hotel.

The sea is great (but not for toddlers) and is pebbly but water still warm in September.

Great to have a drink and watch the sunset go down.

Apart from the hotel for meals there is a restaurant over the road (closed when we were there) and found a small pizzeria restaurant near the bus stop towards Zadar. The only other place I found was a very small local bar/cafe a 2 minute walk away. For nightlife the best bet would be either bus/taxi to Zadar or the closer resort of Biograd which is about 10 minutes by bus. There are a lot of bars and restaurants there.

This is a wonderful, welcoming hotel. The staff are brilliant. With only the hotels terrace between you and the sea, it's great for a refreshing dip or sitting enjoying a drink and the view.

The Mare Nostrum Hotel is an excellent choice for anyone staying in Zadar. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. There was a good choice of food for breakfast. The location was ideal for us as we had a hire car. It is only a 15 minute drive to Zadar where it is easy to find cheap parking right in the town centre. The hotel itself has free parking. The view from the hotel is stunning.

To anyone travelling to Zadar, it is a lovely town with plenty of culture and good restaurants, cafes and bars. As we had a car we travelled to the sandy beach at Nin. I would recommend this beach to anyone visiting the area.
