This was our first trip with 5 months and 20 months old kids. We have chosen this hotel due to very good deal offered by Megabon (50% off) and because we were staying in apartments when Novi resort was just at its beginnings.
So we wanted to see what happened after 6 years.
In general I think the idea was great, but the constructions work went wrong on so many levels. Actually hotel needs renovations already before it’s finished. We stayed in Junior Suite which was a great size for family of four. Loved big balcony with view on sea, where kids could play. However the floor of balcony was made from material because of which we had to use slippers otherwise feet were full of splinters.
Bathroom had so many mistakes on the walls that was hard to watch them. Bedroom was comfortable and still enough place for baby cot. Layout of Junior Suit was perfect for us.
Plenty of halls to connect different parts of hotel, but for us it was fun as they use interesting lightening. This is location where winds can be very strong and then probably each guest can really appreciate halls.
They claim that this is the biggest spa resort – I don’t know on basis of what. Pools where really off. Woods around pools and Jacuzzis were dangerously slippery and floors in Jacuzzy are made from material which was too rough. Because the water is salty you can’t see the walls and floors and my knees looked at the end like I was thrown on rocks, because I was continuously hitting the walls.
In price was included breakfast, which was also far from 5* hotel. No fresh orange juice, pate was private labelled (something I never imagined to find in 5* hotel), chees old. Very good was homemade bread and desserts.
Service was great. All very friendly and helpful.
Because we were in April swimming pools for children were still closed.
Great to walk to centre of Novi Vinodolski.
Hotel should be 3* at the most and still needs plenty of work.
