“Not for the unfit!”
Reviewed August 20, 2010

This is very basic self catering accom but shows photos of its adjacent hotel, Splendid, on the web site, which is new and of a much better standard. Go for this instead as it is on the same site. The site is hilly with lots of steps, which is fine for the young but not ok for my mother who found it very difficult to negotiate. The sea is lovely with rocky beaches and there is a sea water pool, fitness centre, restaurants, disco and a shop. The people were helpful but really this is only ok for a cheap and cheerful trip for active young families. Pula the nearby town has Roman remains but little else. The Croatian coastline makes it worth it, though.

With the UK weather so poor this year our my promised 'greener' camping trips had to go out the window.

I have to say my only incentive for visiting croatia was
a Price of flights (ryanair)
b Price of accomodation
c the sunshine

Its was so cheap I could not turn it down. £750 for a family of four in peak summer, during the school holidays.

Horizont resort is a shared area with the Splendid resort and aminities are one in the same.

If you dont like walking I would suggest you hire a car or dont stay here.

The resort is set in the edge of a forest on the coast.
I stayed in a 1 bedroom appt. They are clean & simpley furnished with a kitchenette, sofa bed in living area and a double bedroom.
All appts have Sat TV. There is aircon in the living room and bedroom but there is a charge of £3.50 a day to make it work.

The resort its self is so vast, even though it was fully booked it was uncrowded.

Being set in the coast line, there are a lot of hills and steps, I walked everyware and I lost 1/2 stone in a week, so be prepared.

The onsite supermarket called Consom, which I felt lived up to its name. This is Croatia where the cost of living is low, I was expecting Tesco prices not M&S.

There a four places to eat and I tried them all many times during my stay, I have to be honest the food was not that good (with the exception of the fish) and the service was pretty lousy.

Down by the salt water swimming pool the sunbeds are £2.50 each for the day. The pool and solerium look out over the sea to an endless horzion and the 'beaches' are accessble by steps that lead down to rocks.
Yes the beaches are rocks, no sand here mate. This is good if your fed up with sand getting everywhere but bad news if your kids want to build a castle.

The sea water is calm, crystal clear and I have to say beautiful even without sand.

There is a childerens club and nightly entertainment that goes on 'till 1am. But my appt was so far away I heard nothing.

The sports centre hires out bikes (well worth it), tennis courts and raquets. There is a mini golf, but no club or balls??.

My whole family enjoyed the week we spent at horizont, it was not brilliant but its was very good value.
