“5* Amenities/Service/Spa - 4* Rooms - 3* Food”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

We booked this hotel for its kid-friendly atmosphere and we were VERY PLEASED with what they offered. The staff was super helpful and friendly, the indoor/outdoor pool was slightly below perfect (would have been perfect if the water was a tad warmer), the indoor/outdoor playgrounds were clean and well maintained, and the weekly schedule of events for kids was impressive. We really enjoyed Maggie in Falky Land!

The Spa was awesome too. We got two great massages and my 5 year old got a "Princess manicure" and the prices were very reasonable, almost too cheap for the quality services you received. Definitely visit the Spa if you stay here!

Rooms were only 4 star as simple things were missing/wrong. We loved the "family room" with separate nook for the kids and large size but the only problem with it was the kids door was directly across from the bathroom. Usually not a problem however, the bathroom door was glass and if you get up in the middle of the night, the light just glares into the kids room which doesn't have a solid door but a slatted door. Plus there was not enough places to put wet clothes or towel. Lastly the shower had amazing pressure and hot water but the pressure was so intense that the hand wand would flip up off the cradle and shoot you directly in the face. Beware and don't put the water pressure all the way on! Otherwise, rooms were clean and large and the beds (including pillows) were surprisingly comfortable.

Food was so-so, and nothing to write home about. We did the all inclusive option but later just asked to switch to breakfast only. I was surprised that being so kid-oriented, that there was no real kid-friendly food unless you feed them pizza or pasta every night which was a staple on the food line. Other then being super convenient, and if you are not touring/leaving the hotel, I would skip the lunch/dinners and eat elsewhere. Of note, if you do plan to leave during the day, you can request a bag lunch to take with you!

Overall, I would recommend this hotel and come back. Location was right on a public beach and the grounds had plenty of room for people to lay on the grass or the pool deck. But it is not close to good restaurants or downtown Zadar so you need to drive to get everywhere. Good thing parking was plentiful in the public lot besides the hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a water view room...it is beautiful!

Both the resort and the area around Zadar are very impressive and exceeded any expectations I had.

Resort. Very strong 4* resort. Great food and nice attention to detail, so they have very good soups, but also have the garnishs that go with them. Nice touches like the carved vegetable decorations on the salad displays. Also, for fussy kids, loads of basics like plain pasta, pizza, meatballs, so everyone is happy!

Leisure activity was the highlight. Programme of free exercise classes lead by the wonderful Ivana who took various family members through fitness classes and also very memorable Pilates by the sea one morning! The Spa was also reasonable priced and very beautifully laid out with lots of lounge areas and very professional massages. Great gym as well.

The weather was as expected, so sunny but not warm enough for outdoor swimming except that the indoor heated pool also has an outdoor section, so you can swim out through a gap and get some outdoor time as well.

The rooms were very good. The family suite really works, even with 2 big teenagers and an 11 year old. Solidly Ikea type design.

Staff are great, and all in all it really is an example of a hotel setting out to make every department be as good as it can be.

Lastly on the area. Plitvice, Krka and Paklenika are truly world class national parks. Driving is easy, roads are great, no need to take organised trips. Zadar is also very pleasant place to hang out for an afternoon.

Room Tip: Family suites are a very good idea vs getting 2 rooms

Don't know where to begin.... almost everything is excellent! Hotel is located in the northern part of the city, next to the sea surrounded with tress. The beach itself isn't the best one, but in this part of the year when we visited that wasn't really important, as the atmosphere is still there. Hotel has a diverse offer, so you can easily fit in.

The rooms are spacious, with good lighting, very clean and very comfortable as the hotel in general.

The stuff is very professional, helpful, kind and friendly (at the reception desk, in the Spa, in the restaurant... all over). They lift up the whole, already good, atmosphere!

There is a wide selection of food for every meal, and it served as a buffet table. Personally the most I enjoyed was fresh sea food, but there is other food as well. Its fresh, well prepared and refilled all the time.

Spa is well organizer with young, helpful, friendly stuff that make you feel really comfortable. The atmosphere in the Spa is very relaxing. I had two massages that were great!

To mentions, there is also a lot of facilitates for children!

Two downsides... there is no wi-fi connection, and we couldn't rent a bike in the hotel. There were some bikes, that were already rented, bu we were told that they aren't in good shape anyway.... That's a shame, it's a wonderful place to bike along the sea....

I definitely would like to come back!

While traveling through Croatia, we have stay in this hotel for 2 nights, was great stay. The hotel has a soul, staff are so friendly and helpful, food was great, bar is very cozy with good music and they serve real Croatian vodka Akvinta, room with view on sea, very clean and spacious. We haven't used spa centre but it look so nice. When I would get chance to go back to Croatia I would for sure stay there.

We were there for three nights and took wellness package and definetly decieded to come back. The profesionalism, aditude and kindness of the staff is something that everyone should "taste". The food is very good, many dishes available, spa area comfortable and relaxing, bar gives you feeling like home. Only the room needs to be renovated, it seems like any money was invested for some period of time. In one word, great place to stay and definetly recommandable!!!
