I have just returned from a two week holiday with my wife at the Meteor Hotel in Makarska.
First the negative point - our Jet 2 flight was well over two hours late and we arrived at the hotel at 11.30 pm.
Reception staff were efficient, pleasant and they quickly dealt with us to allow us to go to our room. Our evening meal had been left in our room and was very welcome and enjoyable.
Our balcony had a good view of the sea, the bay and lighthouse to the right and the mountain range to the left.
The room was a good size and in a clean condition. The bed was comfortable and especially the enormous pillow.
The breakfast was between 7am and 10am and had the usual types of food including cereals, salads and bacon,eggs, sausages etc. You could also get the chef to prepare your chosen omelet with any combination of ham cheese or mushrooms.The drinks were from vending machines and included various juices and hot drinks.
Evening meals started at 7pm and had many and varied choices of starters and main meals with a smaller choice if deserts. All were cooked well and enjoyable. Once seated you were quickly visited by the drinks member of staff asking what you required. If you wanted you could pay for the drinks in cash or put on your room number.
The previous comments about the trolleys at meal times are exaggerated and although they are always clearing up the tables when meals are finished and also delivering freshly cooked food, I found the staff pushing them professional and friendly. In fact, in my opinion, all the hotel staff were very good and helpful.
The hotel is right by the sea with its clear water and as long as you wear something on your feet the beach is fine to walk on and do some swimming.
The hotel lived up to all my expectations and the surrounding areas outside the hotel were pleasant with excellent walks along the promenade in either direction. Turning left takes you to the lovely old town or the other bay were most of the tourist ships are anchored. Or a pleasant walk through the woods heading towards Tucepi. Remember to take water with you even if you are in the shade.
We went on two trips by Thomson one to Split and Trogir and the other was an island trip to Brac.Both were very enjoyable but we especially enjoyed the one Split and Trogir.
The entertainment at the hotel was a little mixed in quality but the singers were good and the evening of fire juggling etc. was unexpected and fun.
Both of us had a good holiday and would recommend the hotel and area as excellent.
