Grand Hotel Adriatic
Ranked #9 of 30 Hotels in Opatija
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Good; nice position (near center), great view (ask 5,6 or 7th floor), nice spa area, good breskfast, free (but limited) parking space which is very important in Opatija. great and helpfull staff.

Bad; furniture bit old, no LCD TV, small bathroom, no balcony (big no-no), only swimming pool is free for hotel guests (everything else you have to pay extra). Lunch and dinner isnt on 4 star level -the choise is too small, food nothing special.

In conclusion I have to say Ive expected much more from this hotel. Good thing that I got it half regular price (90€ full board/night).

This hotel is located at the end of the town and is somewhat of an uphill walk to get to. It is about a mile walk to the center of Opatija. That would be OK I'd it were a good hotel, but it isn't. The worst part is that the AC just doesn't work well. I like it warm in a room (i keep our AC at home at 80)but our room at the Adriatic was stifling. The TV didn't work, but was replaced and the safe malfunctioned. Housekeeping never replaced soap. I wouldn't have minded some of the minor things, but this is supposed to be a four star hotel! I don't know about other hotels in Opatija, but I can't recommend this one.

We stayed in Opatija in the Grand Adriatic as part of a Saga package. The room (700) was absolutely excellent, sea view, comfortable beds , sofa, proper bath and shower. Food ( buffet style) was very good and copious, They even did bacon and egg fresh for breakfast if you wanted it. Our package was all inclusive including local wine and beer - all perfectly acceptable . Staff were helpful and cheerful , there was even a dentist in the hotel ( luckily since I broke a tooth whilst there ) who charged just 200 kuna ( about £22) to sort it out.- No wonder there is a lot of health tourism to Croatia. Only drawback for us was the weather, there is not a lot to do in Opatija if it rains and it did indeed rain!!!

We stayed at this hotel for a week in the middle of the May and our general impression is very good.

It was an organized tour and we did not expect too much from the hotel but we were pleasantly surprised by the hotel's facilities and quality of service. The hotel's location is good – in the middle of the Opatija's coastal resort area, few minutes of walking to the city center. The room and toilet was very clean, the towels were exchanged every day, the personnel - unobtrusively friendly and helpful. The hotel has SPA at the 8 floor. The swimming pool is free, but everything else in the SPA is for additional fee. The Wi-Fi is free and had very good signal quality in our room. We exchanged Croatian kunas at the hotel reception at very modest commission fee.

We noticed two weaknesses only – an old CRT TV and no electric kettle in the room.

Since we had a half board, the dinners were included in the price and were good. Unfortunately, the drinks should be paid separately including water despite of the fact that the tap water in the rooms is potable and is cold and tasty.

But the breakfasts were really delicious – it was not the continental style that one can usually expect in the European hotels but rather the English or Israeli style.

Overall, we had a very good time at the hotel and in Opatija and we will definitely consider staying here again in the future.

Please keep in ming there are 2 wings of the hotel. One is newer and the rooms there are probably more updated and comfier.
We were inthe older part of the hotel, with small, old-era socialist style rooms, but with a great view.

Unfortunately, we diodn't have time to cehck out the pool and spa, but it seems that they are very nice and enjoyable. The breakfast buffet, included in the price, was a wonderful surprise and it definitely helped in "balancing" the quality of rooms.

The staff is nice and helpful. The valet guy is super nice and helpful, wish I remembered his name :)
I only wish the gardener was not crossing over our balcony without giving us some notice first, as we were taking a nap and I was not happy that someone was on our balcony, while I was in my undies...

Overall, a decent hotel and we would stay there again. Hopefully, next time we get to check out the pool & spa.

Room Tip: Just ask for a room with sea view; there are plenty. It is nice to sit on the balcony and enjoy your...

The Hotel is excellent! From the arrival the staff is there to meet all of yours expectations. The receptionists are there to help you and give you all the answers you need. The rooms are big, elegant, clean... The bathroom is big,modern and clean. The restaurant has a beutiful view on the beach. The food could be a bit better but the kindness ofthe waiters and all the staff is more than enough to compensate this thiny minus.
