We spend 16 wonderful days in this hotel. It was our third and best time till now. Everything was well organised (from the transfer from airport,through friendly reception at check in, till our room at marina side with beautiful view). Nice, friendly staff, good food, beautifull room on the marina side, nice beach made this really nice holidays.Our kids(10 months and 3-year old boys) loved it!
We enjoyed a lot evenings for us while our 3-year old played at the childrens corner. The breakfast buffet offered a wide variety of products and the staff made it very pleasant. Special thanks go to Meri and Branko for fulfilling all our wishes and made that we always had a good start in the day. They even surprised us for our wedding anniversary and made it extra special.
Also many thanks go to sommelier Ivan who made our dinners pleasant and always suggested us good local wines. Pity he was not every evening with us! Our room was spacious and always nicely cleaned.We wouldn't recommend to use laundry service(one of our shirts was destroyed!) The 7palms restaurant was a real disappointment (not motivated and unfriendly staff) though pizza is very good.
Most probably we will return again.

Just ending a week at this hotel with our 4 children. While there are aspects that mean it is not as "five star" as you might expect in a location with several competing establishments of that quality, it is a very good hotel. Staff are friendly, and only too willing to help when asked. The beach front is a little small so it gets crowded in peak season (what would you expect !), but we could always find a few sunbeds if we needed and the water is like everywhere here, crystal clear. The two pools were also great for the younger kids (particularly the indoor when they wanted to get out of the sun for a while), and there were plenty of activities in the hotel (tennis, mini golf etc) if you wanted. On some days there was one lifeguard walking around for a bit, but in general the beach and pools are completely unsupervised, and the beach is as far as I can tell public so not just for the use of hotel guests - but none of this presented a problem. The food was all good, if not excellent, but the breakfast was great; yes you might have to wait a few minutes if you want freshly cooked eggs but again what would you expect in high season. If you wanted a break from the hotel bars and restaurants there are plenty of others nearby that range from high to low price. We tried the Spa which was also very good. Overall a very easy place to relax and have fun with the family for a week, and places like Split or Omis are only a short hop in a taxi and well worth visits.

Room Tip: When we booked we got "guaranteed sea view"; thats what we got. Yes we had to look across...

I stayed at this hotel in May and August of 2013. First time with my kids and had to bring my husband back in August. It has the BEST staff of any LeMeridian I have stayed at. It is directly on the beach with beautiful infinity pool and amazing SPA! The food was Superb!!! All local fish. Try to catch there Fish Night Buffet. All you can eat seafood. They are attached to a marina that has also other amazing restaurants! They have an excellent concierge that will go the extra MILE for booking you trips wherever you want to go. This hotel is 10 mins outside of split and they offer shuttle to town. I will be going back this is for sure! Thank you Staff for an amazing time!

Room Tip: Get Deluxe room if possible overlooking Marina or Suite overlooking Adriatic sea!

We stayed at this hotel in July. It was great. The spa was fantastic, such an addition to our holiday and a real bonus in the evening's. The pool area is nice - safe, with friendly helpful staff. The hotel has a variety of eating options, which we enjoyed. A relaxing place and somewhere we'd definitely return to.

Room Tip: The rooms with sea views are fantastic.

We spent three nights at this hotel. It was very beautiful all around. The pool was amazing and looked like it emptied right out into the ocean. We were there during high season, so there was a lot of traffic getting to and from the hotel, but we thought peace way from the center of the city was worth the trek into the city. The hotel offers a shuttle for about $4 one way...it's a thirty minute drive, so that's pretty cheep. For the price of the hotel, breakfast should have been included, but there are good restaurants at the marina right below the hotel. The one thing that stands out the most (besides the beauty), is how helpful the staff was. Everyone did everything to make our visit wonderful.

Dear Renee C,

Thank you so much for your review and your kind words of praise.

Our infinity pool does offer amazing feeling as if it blends seamlessly into the Adriatic sea.

We are proud of our level of service and we all want you to remember not just the destination but how special we made you feel.

Hopefully we will see you in Croatia and back in our resort sometime soon.

Thank you,

I was planning a one week holiday with three kids of ages 16, 9 and 8. The target was to find a place which would be perfect to everyone, also easy to travel there and very easy to stay - not too easy to plan, thinking first. But... after many searches and different options, Croatia - Split - Le Meridien Lav was chosen.

Why? Pool inside and outside, also nice looking beach. Gym and free wi-fi ;-) Of course the pics and describtions looked good. Though the prise was high, this was chosen. Luckily! The trip was a success! Everyone enjoyed and relaxed, including the mother.

Room Tip: When you want a room with a sea view, ensure that your room is really by the sea or high enough.

Had a great stay at this hotel.. Like previous reviews before me the breakfast buffet was not great, and over priced, and we only ate here once..The beds in the rooms are terribly hard for a 5 star hotel, it was like sleeping on the floor.. Overall we had a good experience at the hotel..
