“Fantastic!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2006

My wife and I chose Villa Palme after researching all apartments in Opatija and we were not sorry. We had the Bridal Suite with a fantastic view of Opatija, Rijeka and Krik Island. Croatian people are very kind and hospitable and Erika was no exception. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a typical Dalmation meal with Erika and her family which was absolutely superb. We enjoyed our stay at Villa Palme and recommend it to anybody that would like to visit Opatija.

We've just returned from Opatija where we had 2 lovely weeks in Villa Palme. Together with my husband and 3 children we had a tremendous time. Appartments are neat and clean. Very nice location with beautiful scenary. Especially at night at the pool with the lights along the shore plus the full moon above the sea......it was breathtaking indeed! Upon arrival we received a very warm welcome from Erica and her husband Peter. They made us really feel at home. Also they arranged for us and our Dutch guests a delicious BBQ around the swimmingpool that we will never forget. Erica, Peter and their son Christian did everything to make our stay as joyful as possible. We recommend this place to anyone who seeks relaxation and enjoyment.

Just spent a week in Opatija, staying at the Villa Palme, and was very happy with our choice. The apartments are fresh and seem new and are nicely decorated. The kitchen is a little small, and not very well equipped, but we got what we needed when we asked. The view is wonderful and the pool nice. Erika and Peter are very friendly and helpful and speak english perfectly. We would definetely come again.

My husband and I recently returned from a family visit to Europe. We took a side trip to Opatija, Croatia while we were there. My husband and I travel a couple of times a year at least, but by far the Villa Palme was the nicest place we have ever stayed. The apartments are all large and modern with air conditioning - each with their own kitchen. The grounds are immaculate and the swimming pool clean and refreshing for those hot summer days, yet warm enough for those not so hot days. The Villa Palme is up higher overlooking the town of Opatija. During the day the view is breathtaking and tranquil, and at night it is completely mesmerizing. It is about a 7- 10 minute walk into town, and to the sea. Coming back might take a bit longer as there are some steep stairs but trust me, after a big meal and of course massive ice cream cones, you're thankful for the walk back (so that you don't feel so guilty doing it all over again the next day). The hospitality was second to none. The owners of the Villa Palme live on the same property. Erika, her husband Peter and their son Kristian worked hard all day but always found time to socialize with the guests (ensuring all was well and all their needs were met) without infringing on their privacy or their relaxation time by the pool.

We made our booking arrangements with Erika at the Villa Palme directly. (I did this, because after surfing around the web, I realized that booking through an agent always costs a bit more.) I had no hesitation sending her a deposit by bank transfer from Canada. We paid the remainder when we arrived the first day. The transaction was smooth with no surprise costs. Contact information can be found on their web site [-----------------](they speak many languages so communicating will be no problem).

We have every intention of visiting the Villa Palme again. Warning... make reservations early as they book up fast.
