Great place to stay, new management team with a lot of improvement.
Rooms are amazingly wide and fully furnished, the outdoor simply amazing, is the first one I can see so big, about 25m by 35m and deep as 2m, very nice.
Spa services are complete, they even have an "Egyptian massage" whoaaa and really surprising.

Thanks to all, will come back soon.

Elegant and magnificent place. Rooms were spacious, bed was large enough so my wife and I would not become entangled when moving around. Wifi was excellent. There was a small fitness area which was sufficient if needed. Desk staff was helpful and friendly. The town is not terribly interesting though. We were there for three days visiting a therapy conference.

A Saga holiday meant a week's stay at the Hotel President in Solin, a small town a short distance from Split in Croatia. The hotel is a large building a short walk from the little town itself, via a walk across the park, and across a small footbridge over a narrow river.

The hotel entrance is imposing, the entrance hall having a wide staircase to upper floors and a modern lift which is situated behind the staircase. In the centre of it all is a large chandelier which hangs down from the top floor. Access to a large and spacious bedroom is by means of a pass card the size of a credit card which is held against the door lock for entry and also serves as a light switch by inserting into a slot just inside the door. The card can also access a built-in safe. The room furnishing is of good quality with mahogany colour wardrobes and a corner unit housing the usual minibar. Main room lighting is concealed behind the all round ceiling coving, supplemented by several wall lights. Access to a small balcony is via two opening doors which also tilt for ventilation. Although accommodating two persons there is only one large comfortable armchair with footrest in the room. Anyone losing out has to make do with the usual upright chair at a small desk. There are no spare chairs on the balcony.

The food at the start of the week was good with a large choice at each mealtime, served buffet style. Wine and water was available free. After three days however we were surprised to find that, instead of fifty or sixty diners present at each mealtime, a main Saga tour party of forty had left for their next stage leaving only eight or so of our Saga group present. We were joined by a one-night stopover group of Japanese tourists and one or two other couples. At this stage the servery was not open, obviously because there was an insufficient number to make the provision of many dishes economical to prepare and replenish the servery. Waiter service was therefore provided but it coincided in a big reduction of choice in the limited menu offered. Not only that but the standard plummeted to a disastrous level with some dishes being inedible.

Outside the building are two swimming pools, a smaller one with twisting"streams" to swim along and a larger "Olympic" size pool, closed at the time possibly for lack of
attendants.

On a different level the Saga holiday included access to a "Saga-only" lounge in which free tea, coffee, red wine, white wine and beer on tap was available together with free spirits and soft drinks and mixers. The lounge was open from morning to evening to Saga guests and was kept "topped-up" by hotel staff, who were very friendly, able and courteous throughout the hotel.

Apart from the nearby ruined Roman amphitheatre there is little to visit in Solin but Split is a few kilometres along the road with all that it offers and access to the ferry to the island of Brac was available and made a very pleasant excursion in the fine early summer weather.

This is a very nice comfortable hotel with lovely large clean rooms. Service is excellent with good dining. It is locally rated as 5* and does deliver particularly by Croatian standards. I would only recommend it for a short stay as the location does not have much to offer apart from being near the river. There are a few places of interest including Split close by but you will find it difficult to get anywhere on foot or on local transportation, so need a car or to book excursions.

Room Tip: All rooms are large and well equipped. We overlooked the front of the hotel which offered a nice vie...

We stayed here for four nights on a Titan tour. The room is large, as is the bathroom, well planned and very clean. Food was plentiful and well cooked. The small church nearby is worth a visit. There are a few small shops and a post office across the bridge, and the park is a pleasant area for an evening stroll. No need to pay for a tour to the ruins at Solin as it only takes half an hour to walk there. Yes it has an eight lane 25 metre pool which is for serious swimmers only, not for people who can only do old lady breaststroke type swimming, so join a swimming club and learn how to swim properly before you stay here. Overall a small friendly well run hotel. I would like to know what wonderful food people cook for themselves before they criticise.

Room Tip: We were happy with our room on level 2. Best not to be at the front because of the noise fom the ch...

Stayed for two nights on Titan tour in order to visit Split and see ancient Roman Palace. Room on floor 3 was large and well appointed but in the eaves so no balcony. This turned out to be fortunate as we were not disturbed by a wedding party that went on till 5am and did disturb those on lower floors ! If there was not a wedding taking place you should try and get a room overlooking the front.
The setting of the hotel is attractive in a small park with a local bar nearby. Generally Solin is not a place to visit as it is really a not particularly attractive of Split.
The hotel has two outdoor pools, one large rectangular one is very deep throughout, the other "shaped" one is still deep. Neither have gradations of depth and would put off swimmers who do not like to get out of their depth.
Food was average to good, but not special. Staff were helpful.
It is probably only worth staying for a night or two when visiting the attractions of nearby Split

Like the previous review we had a wedding one night which kept us awake until 5am. The rooms are spacious and comfortable but the food in the restaurant is indifferent, the shuttle bus never ran and there are inadequate longers around the pool and no parasols. Breakfast should be until 10.00 but the buffet was never replenished after 9.00.
