“Superb apartment,views, location and manager Josko.”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Josko (the manager) was the most helpful welcoming person anyone could wish for. He spoke impeccable English, arranged our transfer,met us,took us to the apartment,recovered my wife's Kindle,gave us excellent advice and worked his 'magic' to sort out a car rental problem.The apartment is STUNNING in every respect.The views the location the terrace,equipment,lighting and it's decor. Quite some engineering went into the staircase.The terrace is a real luxury with really interesting views towards the Adriatic and along the promenade.A bonus is the aspect which catches the sun for most of the day.Split is a really intersting place to visit and the Coatian people were all welcoming and friendly.I can recommend this appartments without reservation and will certainly return for another short break.Can't finish without thanking and praising Josko once more. Joyce and Robert

Riva Suites were an excellent choice for hubby, myself and Miss 4 and my parents who travelled through Croatia with us. We had the two suites and we had the one with the roof terrace which was excellent and we loved coming back after dinner to sit up and watch the nightly summer concerts held right below. A perfect spot. The two apartments have their own separate entrance doors plus another one which you can lock off so you can interact between the two.

We were met by Josko who although had been great at replying to emails, unfortunately wasn't there to meet us at the allocated time which resulted in us having to phone him...from our mobile which is costly given we are NZ'ers and the cost reverts back to us. He eventually turned up about 45 mins later which was annoying given he had instructed us to wait at the car ferry terminal (we came from Hvar) - it was very hot, we had a 4-year old and also suitcases for 5 people plus sitting in the rental car. Not a great start.

However, we loved the apartments and would definitely stay there again. The only issue was it would be great to put in an overhead shower as your only option was a hand-held whilst sitting in the bath.

Split is great and easy to spend a few days there before, or after, heading out to the Islands. We loved Croatia and couldn't get over how clean everywhere was there and how efficiently timetables ran i.e. planes, car ferry's, etc.

My wife and I stayed in a 2nd floor apartment (note no lift) in August . Fantastic location overlooking the main promenade and within the palace walls.. Apartment was well equipped and the only change we made was to reshuffle the furniture to view the TV better. The local manager called Josco was excellent and helped us in many ways to make our stay very comfortable. We highly recommend this apartment..

The sea view apartment was great! It offered the best of both worlds: a modern apartment with fabulous views, situated within the walls of the 1700 year old Diocletian Palace.
The apartment manager, Josko, kept in touch with us by email in the lead up to our arrival, and kindly offered to organise a driver to meet us at Split airport ( at a cheaper rate than a taxi). Josko then met our taxi at the start of the pedestrian Riva Front, and took us to our apartment.
The walk to the apartment was a bit daunting through the winding streets of the Diocletian Palace- we thought we'd need to leave a trail of breadcrumbs to find our way back out! But it was easy.
We loved the location, so close to bars, shops, restaurants and the waterfront, but not noisy.
We also loved the apartment, so clean and modern, with classy appliances, comfy bed, wifi and those great views!
We've been away from home for 4 weeks now, and this was by far the best place we've stayed at.

It is a nice apartment, great bed, well decorated, cozy, nice bathroom and bath tub, the surprise is the terrace on the second floor. The view is superb, large with 2 stretchers so you can have a wine with your companion enjoying the view.

I stayed 5 nights in this beautiful modern and well decorated appartment looking on the very animated Riva. It's just behind a lovely square with restaurants and excellent fruit juices, very close to the Diocletian palace. I wish to return there.

We stayed here for 1 night after 3 nights in Dubrobnik and really wished we'd reversed that around. The Old City of Split is actually a lot more interesting, a lot less busy, and much more "lived in." Sure there are the usual shops, but at night you'll find locals drinking in bars and hanging out down alley ways listening to music. I didn't feel like I was competing with thousands of people like in Dubrovnik. Outside of the Old City is a different story - Split looks like it needs a good clean.

The accommodation here was fantastic. We rented two apartments from them, close by each other and both really different. Both were spacious, modern and very tastefully done. Everything seemed to have been thought of.

The staff were extremely helpful and likable. We all felt at ease straight away.

Can't recommend this place highly enough, and like I said, my advice would be to spend a little less time in Dubrovnik and a little more time in Split.

Room Tip: Both the apartments we stayed in were magnificent.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for such a detailed review. Too bad you couldn't stay more in Split, there is so much to do and so many things to see, not only in the Old Town, but also in its surroundings.
Thank you for your compliments regarding our accommodation and our staff, we are glad you liked it. We are looking forward to having you as our guests again and hopefully for a longer period. Kind regards, Split Riva Front Sea View team.
