Pansion Skelin
Ranked #1 of 3 Drnis B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Where to begin to review this wonderful place? Located in Northern Dalmatia, Croatia, the property, with its stunning architecture, two swimming pools and tennis court, is beautiful, tranquil and very well maintained. And, Pansion Skelin is one of the cleanest hotels I have ever seen. Our feet literally squeaked on the shiny wood floor. Rooms are large and well furnished. WiFi is only available in (or near) the main house but that didn't bother us at all...who needs WiFi while staying at a gorgeous place like the Skelin? The staff was very friendly and spent time discussing Croatia, its history and offered sightseeing suggestions. The hotel is located close to the beautiful Krka national park and historic Sibenik. The restaurant is superb in both service and menu. And, of course, I should mention they serve family Skelin wine that as good as well. I cannot say enough nice things about this hotel. We would certainly visit it again if in the area.

My only regret about Pansion Skelin was not staying longer. This is a great place to explore the Croatian countryside, enjoy Krka National Park and surroundings. The area gives you a feel for Croatia. My room was more of a suite and quite nice. The staff were quite friendly as well and the breakfast was great.

This is a fantastic place, 20 km's from Sibenik. The rooms are spacious and very clean, the area is wonderfull, vineyards and olive trees, there are 2 swimming pools, tennis court, all spotlessly clean and well maintained. The breakfast is perfect, lots of variation. We ate in the restaurant 3 times, and was very tasty, for a very reasonable price, do not forget to try the wine they produce. It's a perfect place for relaxing, very quiet area !

Room Tip: We had a room in the newer building, we did not see the other rooms so can not compare, but ours was...

Wonderfully located on the edge of the KrKa national park, this is an excellent pansion. Very comfortable rooms, built in well equipped buildings around two sparkling pools, and in very peaceful surroundings. The restaurant does excellent food and an ample breakfast is provided. Warmly commended... something a bit different away from the busy-ness of the coast.

We arrived late from Split Airport, on our way to the mountain Dinara, and needed a room for the night. We had no expectations, and were a bit anxious while driving in this rural area in total darkness. However when we arrived we were very surprised. Several new beautiful buildings with lightened swimming pools, restaurant and clean and comfortable room, with air-condition. We had a light dinner which was really nice. In the morning we had a descent breakfast, and ask the personnel to make us some lunch for a long hike in the Mountains. They prepared a lot of food and were very warm and welcoming. If we should return we would definitely stay here. Only for hiking July is to hot ;0)

We arrived in the middle of a thunderstorm and we're miserable because we had been looking forward a moment in the sun at the poolside. We forget our dissapointment when we got to the reception where the "boss" and the very nice lady at the reception sensed our feelings. The boss gave us free drinks and snacks on the house. We're only guests in because of early season, so we got the best room and an exclusive dinner + breakfast just for our party of four. In the morning also the weather turned to great and we spent quality time at the poolside before we head up to the national park of Krka! Altough the location of the hotel is a bit of ? We can really recommend this hotel to anyone! Great place and the nicest staff! 5/5!

Ps. Sorry for the stuff we didn't remember to mention that we drank a couple of bottles from the minibar. You can charge that from our creditcard.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for two nights. We wish we had longer. It was spotlessly clean, the beds were comfortable and the rooms and very spacious, boasting a balcony that looked over the neighbouring stone-lined fencing and quaint stone homes. There are two well maintained pools and tennis courts. We borrowed rackets and had some family fun.

Joso Skelin is a very friendly and accommodating host. He makes his own cured hams and excellent wines from his own adjoining vineyard. We sampled his fare and still remember the wonderful tastes! Joso went out of his way to make us feel at home in his wonderful 2 year old lodging. (It feels older as it blends into the countryside so well.) He has worked as a chef for many years and he cooks the most amazing homestyle dishes.

We ate there both nights. He made his beef noodle soup (the best we ever tasted) and his platter of assorted meats with cabbage salad. (YUM) The breakfasts are magnificent (crepes, eggs, bacon, ham, cheeses, fruit, cereal..you name it..and the coffee is very good.

It was real value for money. We found Sibenik to be unimpressive and somewhat chaotic. Drive the extra 30 mins and find a haven near beautiful waterfalls to enjoy on your day trips.

Thank you to Joso Skelin and his excellent staff. We had a lovely time.

Room Tip: We had apartment 2A. Very nice.
