just got back from a weeks stay at the rosina hotel in makarska.
it's a very nice hotel, better than the usual croatian style hotels that we have been to before.
all staff were very friendly and helpful, and our fellow guests were mostly english, czech and polish, who vere also very friendly.
the hotel was very clean in all areas and well presented throughout.
our room was on the second floor at the front, and although the hotel is situated on the main road from split to dubrovnik, once the double glazed doors were shut you could only hear the traffic slightly.
the suite was very large with sitting area as well as large double bedroom however the bathroom was unnecessarily small at only 1.5m by 1.8m considering the size of the room, but it was adequate and well cleaned on a daily basis.
in room air conditioning was the best we have had in croatia and was really welcome after a long hot day - we had one cloudy day out of our week, the rest of the time it was very hot and sunny.
also in the room was mini bar - well stocked and inexpensive, small safe for your valuables, flat screen tv - but no english channels, free wifi acess throughout and plenty of waredrobe space.
we payed extra and had half board and ate there four nights, but on reflection we wouldn't if we went back, the food was of good quality but choices were limited to a choice of three items on each course and if you don't like fish or rice or pork you have very little else to choose - over the week it was very repetative.
breakfast was very good, small but adequate choice for most people.
having been to makarska about 10 years ago we were quite surprised at how much it has grown - it is now a very large town and the rosina is on the outer edge but within approx 25mins walk to the centre - the beach is approx 5 - 10 mins down towards the sea - more like 10 - 15 mins to climb back up - not for the immobile.
overall we would go back to the rosina hotel as we enjoyed our stay very much but we would only stay on a b&b basis.
