The hotel really is first class with a breathtaking view (I believe in every room - although I did notice a few rooms at the back so you might want to double check when booking). We stayed in one of the delux rooms to have a little more space and access to the sun terrace. This meant that we had a lounge area, spa bath and about 50 square metres of space! There was really no need to leave the comfort of our room other than to pop down to the pool or the sea for a dip whenever we got too hot. The staff are eager to please and very friendly always emphasising that they are there to make sure you enjoy your stay.
My only critique would be the food which, whilst it filled a hole and was tasty enough, was not quite what I'd expect of a five star hotel (e.g. smoked salmon salad was just some shredded lettuce with smoked salmon plonked on top). That said we only ate breakfast, room service and lunch by the pool. There is a more up market restaurant in the hotel (Lalezar I believe) which may have been better and delivered more of a wow factor. Additionally, you'd be crazy to just eat at the hotel now matter how good the food is given the vast array of quality eateries with fresh fish in the old town in a beautiful setting (about 20 minutes walk or 50-60 kunas in a cab). Additionally they need to do something about the practice of reserving sunbeds by the pool simply by leaving your towel there. Rarely were any vacant yet rarely were more than 10% actually occupied.
Aside from these relatively minor points - neither of which was particularly a big issue for us - we had a very enjoyable stay. Perfect view and excellent staff who are always more than happy to help you in any way they can.
