Slightly out of town opposite the cruise liner port, convenient for the old town - walking 35 mins, local frequesnt bus 10 mins and 12kuna per trip if you prebuy tickets. Hotel staff on the efficient side of friendly. Rooms in the front block were getting better comments than the back block built into the hillside. Ours was clean and smart although it did take the whole length of our stay to work out the lighting and aircon panel.
Initially disappointed with the first impression of the evening meal buffet (we had booked half board) as the presentation of the food didnt fit with the pictures of the meals in brochures and on screen. However, all food was of good quality and hot. Also, some good bars and restaurants locally and nice to get out of an evening. The Yacht Club staff were friendly with a lovely location. Although we didnt eat there, the food looked lovely.
As we were there for a city break we were surprised to see people bathing by the pool but it turns out that being there for 3 days is more than enough time to all the things you want to do, twice, and relax. We went at the end of October and it was 29 degrees. First place I've been where I left describing it as a combined city break/ resort destination.
In the old town, shop and restaurant staff were friendly and not pushy for your custom. Local calamari very tasty and cheap if taken off the light lunch menus. Evenings a lot quieter after cruise ships had gone with a number of bars offering good quality live music - piano, jazz etc.
Overall, very pleased with hotel choice. The positive comments are well justified
