“Amazing property with friendly owners!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

I just do not have words to explain how stunning stay we had! We were staying in Villa Palma and I am sure we will be coming back. Rooms are amazing, really spacious, clean and with new furniture.
But mosttly I was stunned with hospitality of the family Boric. They are really friendly and you feel like you are at home..I like that a lot...
I will advise everybody who is coming to Makarska to stay in villa Palma. :)

I recomand it to all. The host was very friendly, the appartment was great, clean with all facilities we needed. The room inside was perfect and had a high-standard bathroom and beautiful balcony view. The owner- very warm person. We were greeted with cold lemonade.

Good place, clean, not expensive, a lovely elder lady that owns the place. They have garage for the car. We booked the ground level apartment, fully fitted, 2 bathrooms, a/c, nice inner court kitchen.

We stayed in purple appartment for 4 nights in May 2011. Appartment was very nice, clean, designed with a big taste in lavender colour - even little board for cutting was with purple flowers and sweets in vase were in purple wrapper also. From the balcony opened beautiful view to the sea, mountains and town. Service was excellent, the owner was very friendly and helpful, did all her best .She speacially called for specialist that we could watch English and Russian chanels on TV, found for us a very cheap transfer to Split airport. Last day we had to check out at 10 am, so she allowed us to keep our things in another appartment and take a shower before our trip home. So, our stay in villa 'Palma' was fantastic.

This is the best apartment I ever stayed in. And the service is also the best. I recommend it strongly. I would love to go back any time!

Highly recommend this place, exceptional value for a premium location. About 6-8 minutes on foot to the Makarska waterfront and super-close to the main Split-Dubrovnik highway. Just be warned, for anyone with mobility issues, would not recommend, the place is at the top of a very steep hill, but you could always drive down.

Stayed in the yellow apartment which was massive and they were nice enough to open the balcony from an adjacent suite for us to use.

The owner did not speak English, but their son was just a phone call away to explain what you needed. Was greeted with orange juice freshly squeezed from the garden and a selection of fresh fruits. Grandma would also come around with treats she had baked whenever we were around. This would be an excellent choice for anyone with kids.

Highlights:
Full kitchen
Very sizable and comfortable bed
Sizable suites
Free wifi
Free parking
Good grocery store just 300m away
Close to bus station (~8 minutes on foot) with good connections throughout southern Dalmatia

Be warned:
Had Garmin GPS maps and it got really, really confused trying to find the place.. You're best off following the owner's directions
As with most places in Croatia, an iPhone does not suffice for wifi, bring a net book/laptop
