“Apartments That Resemble A Modern Upmarket Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

We chose Barbati Apartments due to the location being close to Novalja / Zrce Beach (but out of the main hub) and also due to the excellent reviews on both TripAdvisor and Booking.com and were certainly not disappointed.

Upon our arrival, we were greeted by a friendly receptionist who took us on a tour of all the facilities, escorted us to our room and pointed out where we could park our car (parking is freely available and not an issue).

Barbati Apartments are approximately 2 years old and in fact resemble a modern hotel. The apartments are situated in a quiet little village and offer splendid views across the bay. Facilities include an outdoor pool, wellness and spa centre, sauna, gym, restaurant and a lovely alfresco dining terrace (also has a bar), where one can relax at any time of the day and have either a quite drink or a meal. We thoroughly enjoyed having both breakfast and our evening meals (along with pre-dinner drinks) on this terraced area overlooking the sea. The restaurant also offers both an excellent menu and good quality meals at reasonable prices, with service being first class and friendly; hence there is no need to venture out for meals unless one wishes. There is also 24 hour room service available if desired.

The apartments themselves are extremely spacious, very modern and clean, nicely furnished (King bed), air-conditioned and have a balcony (some with views). Full kitchen facilities are included in the apartment, whilst the bathroom is also nicely appointed. Wi-Fi is not available in the rooms but can be readily accessed in all the public areas including the alfresco terrace.

The only issue we had was that we had a ground floor apartment; therefore our room was in close proximity to the general entrance door of the apartment block. The frequent pedestrian traffic entering and exiting the building resulted in the constant opening and closing of the front security door, thereby, causing a certain amount of noise which was a bit of an issue during the night. It would therefore be my recommendation to request an apartment on either the first or second floors to avoid the noise issue. For rooms having the best view, request apartments in the reception area block which directly overlooks the bay.

Directly in front of the apartments is a pebble beach area for swimming and also sun chairs and fixed thatched umbrellas for either sunbaking or shelter from the sun. Zrce beach is on the opposite side of the bay (approximately 5 – 10 minute drive) and whilst the sound from the night clubs can be heard in the distance, it is not overly loud and is certainly not an issue.

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, with the apartment and facilities far exceeding our expectations and would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Barbati Apartments for a relaxing stay, with everything one could wish for being readily available at the one location.

Room Tip: For rooms having the best view, request apartments in the reception area block which directly overlo...

We had a great time in the island of pag, where we stayed in this apartments. They are clean modern and have all the features you could ask for. We had planned to use the kitchen in our apartment to cook our own meals throught our stay, but when we tried the restaurant the first day, we gave up the idea. Great food with good service and very good prices.

Ivana the receptionist, goes above and beyond to help you with whatever you need, very kind and attentive to all your needs.

The spa is great as well, very proffesional treatments for a very good price as well.

I wouldn't say there are any negative points about this hotel apart from the location, because there is not much happening around in a walking distance.

We stumbled upon this great spot onilne prior to our visit. The location looked perfect (situated on the ocean and minutes into town) and the rooms looked big and beautiful. Upon our arrival in late June 2011, we were blown away. The location was incredible, the rooms were more like large luxury apartments and there was more that we didn't find online. Barbati has some of the most incredible food for breakfast, lunch and dinner and some of the best service Croatia has to offer.

Barbati is a family run apartment that (from what we understood) is only open from April - September. Over the course of our stay we got to know the son who runs the hotel through the summer. He was unbelievably kind, courtesy and accommodating to all guests staying at Barbati. If there was ever a problem, he dealt with it personally and quickly.

The rooms were magnificent. Full in-suite kitchens, large gracious patios overlooking the ocean and beautiful, white furniture with extremely comfortable beds and well appointed bathrooms.

We checked out a number of hotels in Pag and without a doubt, Barbati came out on top. If you are going to Pag, Croatia, you owe it to yourself to spend at least a couple nights at Barbati. The food was to die for and the hospitality was second to none. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: ask to stay in the first building, closest to the ocean (better views).

Barbarti hotel was amazing, clean, great staff and so relaxing. Really worth the trip to Vidalici. The stark white and lavender theme carried throughout the hotel and rooms is luxurious and at the same time homey. This is a hotel at which you feel really special and definitely on a magical Adriatic sojourn. The rooms have stoves if you want to do your own cooking but the food is wonderful so why bother.

Room Tip: The Lun suite is gorgeous.

We would really recommend Barbati to those tired of ugly, broken and dirty appartments in Pag island (especially around Novalja). Owners are perfectionists, trying hard to make everyone feel good. Everything is new, lovely, spotlessly clean, fully equipped, airconditioned and very white. Photos tell the truth! Restaurant is very good, so are breakfasts. Loved the bar! Nearby (hotel) beach ain't much but there are plenty of gorgeous beaches in the area, you just need to drive a little bit. With a boat you're in Zrce in an instant (music from the Zrce clubs can also be heard in Barbati, but is quite tolerable).

Room Tip: Main house by the sea is more noisy (restaurant and bar), the ones in back are quieter and provide n...

We stayed in Barbati during the Hideout dance festival. It has virtually all the facilities you would expect from a hotel. We understand that much of the accomodation in Croatia is basic, Barbati is not.

The staff are friendly, speak excellent english and the location is beutiful. Taxi's are not plentiful, you might need a car to get to the pleasant nearby town of Noivalja. The restaurant is very good.

Really nice place to stay. The apartments are new, very clean, and have all the amenities. The service is quick and staff are friendly. There is 24 hour room service if you need it. The location is quiet and if you wish to visit the nightclubs in Zrce they are about 8 minutes away by car. We had a wonderful stay. However, if you stay in the ground floor, there may be ants and other insects coming in the apartment but that is quite normal in the area. There was also swimming pool and gym but we did not use it. Looked nice though.
