“Beautiful but crowded”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

It's a 4 star hotel situated about 20 minute walk from the center of the Vodice town. You can visit lots of interesting and beautiful destinations from Vodice, like Zadar, Šibenik, Krka waterfalls etc.

The hotel is qute big, very beautiful, the personel is kind. The rooms are quite spacious, with big balcony. They have free wi-fi, air conditon, Sat TV (LCD), mini bar. The bathroom had a beautiful shower and a hair drier.
The food was good and with lot of choise. We have had a full buffet, there was a little less choise for lunch, because not too many people eat it. For breakfast and dinner there was much more too choose from. The one thing I didn't like a lot was, that there were not enough children chairs and if you got one it was not that clean. Also, if you don't like to eat in the company,there were not many tables for 4 persons, most of them were for 8-10 persons. So because of a very big crowd especially at dinner time, you almost never sit at your own table.

The hotel has it's own wellness and fitness, an big outdoor swimming pool with fresh water and a small one for children. There is also one bar, a gift shop and and small turist agency that can organize trips for you.

The beach is very cloes, about 50 m, it's beautiful, with small stones, teh water is clean. The sun-beds and umbrelas are free at the swimming pool, but you have to pay for them on the beach, and they are quite expensive, about 30 € / day.
There are some bars on the beach, a restaurant,stands with fruit, pancakes and souvenirs.
There are also some water slides and a water jet rental. During the high season there are some children trains, of course not for free.

The location of the hotel is really good, close to the sea, away from the city but not too far for a walk. If you don't want to walk, you can go to the city by a road train, that goes from the hotel every 20 minutes. It's not that cheap and you also have to pay for children.

The hotel has it's own supervised parking, but you have to pay 5 €/ day for it.

Anyhow....the hotel is beautiful and the town of Vodice is wonderful, what I really missed is, that there were not many children playgrounds nearby, there was not a lot of tree shadow and that even if we were there on the first week of September it was quite crowded....I've heard that it's almost impossible to walk in August.

Nice location and comfortable room (323) with balcony and pleasant view towards the sea. However the carpet was badly stained with wine and other unidentifiable things. Plenty of storage and good ensuite shower and wc.

Unfortunately the food was not of the standard I expected for a 4 star hotel and we were half board . There was a wedding taking place on the evening of arrival which was very noisy. The second night the entertainment was also very disturbing.

The outside areas were attractive and the swimming pool looked inviting but in October I was not tempted.

I travelled with a group.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms overlooking pool and close to dining room because of the noise of the entertainment. Mi...

3 nights at this hotel were a great way start to our holiday. Our accomodation (Room 219) was ideal with a great view out over the pool area and with sea views. During our stay the weather was still quite hot and it was a shame that the air con had been switched off because the main season was over!

The buffet food was very good with a great choice and attentive staff on hand if they were needed.

The hotel's location ment that you could easily stroll along the sea shore to reach the small town with it's bars and restaurants.

We enjoyed our visit to the city of Split which can be reached in less than 1 hour.

Room Tip: Room 219 has a great view over the pool and to the sea.

This hotel has it all, the pool and lounging area, a short walk to the beach where the water is clear and shallow. The food was excellent and very well presented, the dining room was not too noisy as the high ceiling took away the noise. The staff were very kind and friendly and very helpful. It wasn't too far to walk along the beach into the town of Vodice where there were lots of restaurants and bars. The room was very clean, bathroom was a bit tiny but more than adequate. A good stay

Room Tip: they are all good positions it depends what you want........

I was here in July 2012. The room was clean, nice and good size for 3 and we had a very nice view towards the pool. The pool was also clean and suited for the family. Great amenities and the food was very good.The beach is very close, and has a nice path to walk. There are many resturants around for any tast.We enjoiyed a lot and would like to go there again.

Room Tip: rooms towards the pool but in higher floors has better view and are quieter.

This is a great four star. Great amenities , gym, spa etc. Pools are great. Hotel very well suited for children. I would try and request a room facing the sea or pool as the views are not great otherwise but its not too bad if you don't get one.

Room Tip: Overlooking the Sea or pool if possible

I stayed here with my son in July 2012. The staff was polite and helpful, the room was clean and nice and we had a very nice view towards the pool. The pool was also clean and my son enjoyed swimming there. The beach is very close, around 50 meters and the most pleasant in the morning (too crowded in the afternoon). We were especailly satisfied with the food, both for the breakfast and for the supper. We plan to come back next year.
