The Valamar is off the beaten path just a 15 minute (12 KN - about $2) bus ride on Bus 6 to the old town - the bus stop is 100 yards from the hotel and discounted tickets can be bought at the hotel to save on the fare charged on the bus. The hotel lobby is large with lots of seating and very good WiFi access. The adjacent bar lounge offers light snacks and evening entertainment which was very good. Outside the lounge is a large patio area with great views of the Adriatic and the very nice pool and hot tub areas, which also share those views - the pool water temperature was on the cool side. Our fifth floor was large and comfortable and, being the top floor, had cathedral ceilings to make the room feel even larger. It was a modern decor, clean, quiet and had intermittent WiFi access. English TV, as is common in these areas, is limited. A very large room with a large buffet breakfast starting at 7AM is on the ground floor. The offerings were very diverse and very good. Service is also very good; while some of the staff required simple English for communication this was not a problem. Many buses depart early in the morning creating a "rush" and service for omelets, fried or poached eggs, etc. can be slow so plan accordingly or delay breakfast until 8AM. A five minute walk downhill finds a pizzeria and a couple of other restaurants offering good food at very reasonable prices. An additional 10 minutes of walking further downhill offers much larger choices in a neighborhood frequented by locals. If the uphill walk back is too much take bus #6 - it runs every 10 minutes.
We spent four nights there and would not hesitate to return.
