“Great hotel for families”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

I've been in the Vespera hotel for 9 days, with my wife and my kid. We all had a great time there both in the hotel and around. The hotel is prefect for families, it is very well prepared for kids, has animation, babysitting, good rooms, great (all inclusive type of) food and ready-for-service personal. The surroundings are very beautiful; I remember the beach next to the hotel, nice walks by the coast and especially Veli and Mali Losinj. The hotel is very multicultural and you'll find there people from all around Europe. A great present for your kids!

We just returned from our summer vacation in Losinj. We stayed at Vespera Family Hotel. it's great place for kids but with several bad points. Good things first: my 3-years old son absolutely love the Pino mascot and kids disco at the evening, he enjoyed the kids pool with see water and kids meals at the restaurant. The place is excelent for big families, kids are just everywhere and you can really be relaxed. Nature around hotel is beautiful with a lot of pino threes and shades, you have nice playgrounds (indoor and outdoor) on every step. Perfect for young children.

Cons: Hotel doesn't have a la carte restaurant in the building, so you must go out to find some lunch, which could be annoying thing in case of a bad weather. Another issue is the internet access. There is no Wi-Fi in the room, and signal is poor in the hotel lobby. But you can count on the network cable for the internet access in your room. And, finally, the room maid is not too diligent, so you must to ask every day for the new soap, shampoo etc.
Not really 4 star hotel, I would say it is nice 3 star but fantastic for kids!

Aside from the fact that the island of Losinj is impressively beautiful, we chose thos hotel for a last minute holiday, and only found this available for our family of 2 + 2 children.
The hotel has everuthing you can ask from a family beach resort point of view, and the setting is very nice.
The rooms are large, and relatively clean, the task of the cleaning staff is to remake the bed and change the towels, maybe somw vacuuming would give it that extra clean feeling.
The tv is miniscule, but acceptable, the pool is nice and the beach area and views are beautiful. The only problem is the rest f the guests which seem to love the indistrial cantine type buffet, there is an annoying habit of reserving the beach or pool lounges simce early so you will not have space to sit if you dont get up at 7am and put your towel, but this happens a bit everywhere at this price range.
The staff are nice and helpful and polite, however i say this relative to slavic standards, please no offense to my slavic friends, its just that the kindness of the people is offset by their relative slowness and need to make you wait in line for things.
Overall the hotel is a good value for a family vacation, many activities for kids, nice touch is te beach bag with towels, food could be better, noisy rooms if you are in the front but the view is so nice you forget about it, other guests are a bit rural in behavior but Losonj is so beautiful that you can easily escape them.

Stayed with family with 3 kids of age 9, 9 and 1 year.
The hotel is located 3km from town of Mali Losinj in beautiful bay just few steps from the sea. The beach is large enough, so that everybody can easily find own spot with reasonable distance from others. Disadvantage of this location comes in the evenings, when to get into the town there is need to take a car (facing the troubles to park in the town centre and then back at the hotel parking, which is completely full during the peak season). The better way is to take a taxi or car-train shuttle to get there.

The rooms are nice, but could be bigger for 4* facility. The selection and quality of food was ok. The hotel is Family Hotel and the choice animations is very good covering whole daytime and evening program. The kids really enjoyed it, especially the thematic discos in the evenings. Avoid this place, if going without kids, since you will face more or less loud kids playing in every part of the hotel, which might not be peaceful type of stay expected……

Had the room on park-side on the corner part of the hotel, which should the preferred by those looking for quiet environment. The evening program lasts daily till 10:30pm on the hotel terrace, so if you do not prefer having discos right behind the balcony every evening, avoid sea-side rooms on central part.

Another topic is air-condition increasing the comfort on one side (possible to be turned off in the rooms), but have noticed lot of kids being sick from it, even its temperature is set reasonably in public areas of the hotel…..

Overall, very good hotel mainly appreciated by active kids participating in wide selection of animation program.

The Hotel is located in a very beautiful position on the seaside immersed in a pine tree forest. The rooms are modern and recently renovated with spacious bathroom and all with balcony , only the cleaning is not perfect and the carpet in the rooms don't help the maintenance. The restaurant is spacious and the food is relatively good and various. The only complain is that the buffet service is not appropriate for a "Kinder hotel" where children are allowed to serve themselves with consequent disaster on the restaurant floor
The beach is spreaded of white plastic beach beds that are on 24 hour per day so that walking along the beach in the evening or night the view is not so romantic....
The staff is good and efficient although a little bit too cold

We were there in an early season, May 7. business-ish trip.
Downsides of being early: The shared pool was quite cold.
Dinner selection was also at ½, what we realized on our last day when a lot of people arrived.

Staff is polite and helpful, the interior of the Hotel modern seems quite newly renovated or built. Althought some spots here and there, it’s mostly in great condition. It has some fancy features like RF doorkey, push-button-do-not-disturb sign.
I had a sea view double room, 4th floor -- real sea view. Tho the hotel is kids friendly, animation was going on till 22h, which for smaller kids seems to be a bit late. Get a garden view to have silence.
The restaurant is also kids friendly, they have a separate area with little chairs and tables to eat. There’s a corner for the parents to prepare babyfood, equipped with microwave, blender, whatnot. Food selection is a good 4* for breakfast and high season dinner. Low season dinner is rather average. All meals in a buffet system -- what I would prefer with kids. Breakfast juices are a bit crappy, rather average 3 star. Coffee either served or serve yourself from the automat (which seemed NOT to be the crappy powder-ish thing). You can find hot milk and cacao powder for kids. Self served softdrinks are free for dinner, others and alcoholics charged.

The crystal clear sea is almost at the doorstep. The beach is rocky, there are some ladders to take a dip. There is a small pebble bay on the other side of Aurora, some 50m wide, I guess in high season there’s a fight for places there. The nearest best shallow sandy beach is on island Susak, well worth a visit.
Mali Losinj center is a 15-20min walk, there’s a trail beside the road -- some lights are dead better take a torch (or a smartphone) with you. Beer and wine is a lot cheaper downtown. As I remember 0.5 or 0.75L water is 20 kuna in the hotel -- 4* prices hit hard on the budget. There’s a lidl and dm on the way if you’re on the budget.
The area around the hotel has mostly pinewood, good for the scent and cleaning the lungs.
Saw a lot of kids facilities, but no kids around so early.

Room Tip: top floors have better seaview, seaviews evtl. louder in the evening, gardenview faces the parking l...

Hotel Vespera left me with a very good impression. The staff is polite and helpful, the interior of the Hotel modern and bright. I stayed in a double-bed room (equipped with the extra bed) and liked it very much. It was spacy, very clean, modern furnished and comfortable and had a sea side view (through the pine woods). The only thing I disliked was the sharing door with the neighbough room (it gave me a bit of an uncomfortable feeling having someone unknown next door), but if having more children or friends in such a next room, this can be rather practical. The Hotel itself is children oriented, so it's perfect for the young families with even the smallest children. Almost everything is adjusted for kids - you have playrooms, animation program, baby aerobics, separate children dining area within the restaurant etc. Even the food (e.g. breakfast) is also adjusted by having children food.
The sea is only 20 m far from the Hotel which is also a positive element.
Hotel itself is 20 min walk far from the center of Mali Lošinj. There is a nice little train-bus taking you from Hotel to the town, so you do not have to go by car or on foot, if you do not want to. However, the walk is rather pleasant and many people go on foot because it through the pin woods and, therefore, very interesting and healthy as well.
To conclude, I wood in any case, recommend this Hotel as a very good place to stay, especially if having children as well.
