Reviewed September 22, 2009

We stayed at Hotel Agava in September with a tour group. Our room was spacious with a good sized bathroom although the shower cubicle could have been bigger. The housekeeping was wonderful - everything so clean. Slight downside was that our room was at the front and the lounge coffee bar opposite played loud music (why do they have to do this?) until 2am and even with the shutters and windows closed you could hear it. We were on a B&B deal, the breakfast was always the same but quite acceptable. This included fruit, yogurts, cheeses, ham, trays of scrambled eggs, little sausages, bacon. Best if we were up for an early breakfast as the food was kept over hot water and the eggs were a bit solid at times! One problem which was almost amusing was that the hotel never had enough cups at breakfast and staff needed to rush off to wash some - they put mugs out sometimes. This caused stress for the staff and irritation for the guests - a simple purchase of 50 cups would have solved the problem and we couldn't understand why they didn't do this!
The hotel had a board outside the hotel advertising their breakfast with a picture of a lovely croissant but these were never offered, the bread rolls were good though.
Some of our group had booked the evening dinner which was buffet - we did look at the dishes offered and were not too impressed but for the price charged, £42 for six nights if pre-booked or equivalent of 12Euros per person if taken as required, it seemed reasonable. We ate out but should have checked out restaurant reviews before going as some were not so good - motto do the research!
Opatija is a lovely, elegant resort - small and stylish. We would be happy to stay at Hotel Agava again.

I spent many hours on the Internet looking for the right hotel. I wanted something close to the ocean, close to the city center, somewhat small, clean, quiet, great service, free Internet access, room service, laundry service and air condition. I got it all and then some.

Our room was clean, spacious, cool and quiet . The bathroom can be described in a similar way. Housekeeping did a great job. The front desk did their upmost to make us feel at home and really enjoy our holiday. Breakfast was served from 7 – 10 and during our stay the restaurant was never over crowded. The breakfast selection was good, though they could add some more fruit and vegetables.

The photos of the hotel I found on the internet described the hotel well. It was neither fancier nor more run down. We parked our car in the garage under 4 Opatijska Cvijeta. It was a bit more expensive than parking on the street, but highly recommended. The (SPA) Pool area at 4 Opatijska Cvijeta was included. The Pool was of medium size, a bit shallow. Sun beds both indoors and outdoors. The SPA treatments were not included. I would have preferred it the gym was included as well.

The hotel was a small comfortable gem, the front desk made it extraordinary.

We stayed at the Agava in August this year and found the hotel to be very nicely renovated and updated to even North American standards. "Most" of the staff were very pleasant and accommodating.

We were travelling with our two children ages 4 and 6 and booked a breakfast and dinner package. On the first evening when we arrived to the dinner buffet and were looking at the buffet I heard behind me "Don't touch!" being directed at my children who were at my side looking at the salad bar. We were very disappointed with one of the waiters' attitude towards families with children.

Most evenings we would order wine or sparkling water, one night we wanted plain tap water but were advised, again by the same waiter, that we could not have tap water, that it was unsafe to drink. We did not argue, but knew from other waiters in that hotel and in other restaurants that the tap water was just fine to drink.

We also had a disapointing situation booking a tour through the hotel. We booked and paid for a tour to Venice Italy. The morning of the tour, we up early and waiting for the tour bus to pick us up at 6:00 am. Not an easy task with small children. We waited at the designated location for a 45 minutes before we returned to the hotel and were advised that the person who took the reservation had not properly confirmed the tour with the tour company. There was no offers to "make it right" or compensation for our inconvenience.

Aside from the unpleasant waiter in the restaurant and the mix up with our tour the stay was nice and despite all my complaining would definitely stay there again.

I stayed here as part of a tour.

The rooms were of a good size with a good bathroom (shower no bath) all the fittings were of a good standard and looked new.

My room was on the side of the hotel and quiet, but some other people travelling on my tour coudl here noise from the nearby club. (though this did finish quite earky in the evening).

The staff were very friendly.

There was a large buffet spread for breakfast.

The hotel is in a convenient location situated in the main st.
