Just back from 2 weeks stay at the Hotel Jadran in Seget Donji... or, as my partner who couldn’t pronounce it called it... leggy donkey - hence the title!

We found the hotel to be of a fairly good standard if you don’t require too much in the way of entertainment or facilities (especially in the low season).

All rooms are sea facing and we had paid a very small supplement for a high floor room - but my tip would be to not do this, as the lower floors actually have a better view through the trees - although you do get a private screened off balcony on the top floor - rather than the wide terrace running along the lower floors, which were a bit more open, and anyone straying from their part of it could possibly see into your room (see hotel photos).

Unlike a previous reviewer, we found the food to be of a good standard. The salads we had were excellent, and always had 'extras' to choose from i.e. cold meats, 2 or 3 different cheeses and always little individual pots of a mixed salad of some sort such as tuna, Greek or barley salad etc. There was always a standard cut of meat such as beef or pork, a fish dish, pasta, and usually something a bit more 'adventurous' such as black squid ink risotto that is 'traditional' in that area and looks disgusting, but is actually very tasty... I'd always wanted to try it but never dared order it in a restaurant, so here was my opportunity... delicious!

The only negative re the dining room was that we were more or less 'pushed outside' on a couple of nights when 2 or 3 large tour groups descended - who, I hasten to add, were no problem in themselves, but they closed the WHOLE dining room off for them, leaving only 2 small tables for four people left inside... and these groups didn’t even appear until most of the other diners had finished anyway... I think it could have been organised better with maybe asking guests to stick to a certain sitting for a couple of days... goodness knows what they would have done if it had been raining.

We had some wonderful walks in the area to Trogir, Čiovo island and Seget Vranjica, as well as using the cheap water taxi that runs into Trogir from where you can get another ferry to Split etc.

We were a bit disappointed that although it was still nice and warm and sunny most of the little bars and cafes near the Hotel had closed up by the time we left on the 9th. October - and as the Hotel lounge lacked atmosphere we were in bed by 8.30pm every night!

We hired a car from Nova rent a car in Trogir for 3 days... I can recommend them as trustworthy - no complaints from us!

Overall a fine hotel for the money, with lovely staff, but if you require 24/7 entertainment and facilities, this is not the hotel for you... especially at the end of September/early October when everything was closing down.

Thank you to all the staff at the Hotel Jadran for welcoming us back to wonderful Croatia.

Very friendly hotel with helpful and kind staff. Room overlooking the sea and beach very comfortable. The restaurant catered for all tastes and the staff were always happy to meet your needs. Whilst WiFi is available in public areas only it did not spoil our stay. A great place to stay only 2 kilometers from the town of Trogir.

The Hotel Jadran is in a great location right on the seafront next to the water taxi pier. The water taxi will take you to Trogir or up to the next hotel for about £2.50 and runs all day. The hotel itself is very clean with large comfortable rooms and friendly staff. However as the majority of guests are German, the food is not to British tastes. We have eaten in hotels all over the world and this is the only hotel where we have failed to find something edible at dinner .It isn't even possible to make yourself a salad as the lettuce has usually run out and there are no cooked meats or cheeses to go with it. There is soup but you are face with strange flavours such as millet soup or mangol soup. When dinner opens at 7pm there is a feeding frenzy. The other guests rush in taking all the food and leaving the serving dishes empty. Their plates are loaded up with everything on offer. One breakfast I followed a man who took 12 bread rolls!!
Aside from the awful food, the hotel is very nice. It is not suitable for anyone with mobility issues as there are lots of steps The area is very picturesque and the view from the rooms is beautiful. The beaches here are very rocky so it is advisable to bring some beach shoes as you don't want to miss out on the warm, crystal clear sea. It is very quiet at night and unless you take the water taxi you are confined to a few bars on a short prom. In the daytime there are boat trips and all kinds of boats for hire. I would recommend the fish picnic and the boat to Split from Trogir - although get there early as it is very busy as it is an hours scenic sail for just £4.

Lovely holiday 2018

We spent two wonderful weeks in Hotel Jadran, Seget Donji, Trogirska rivijera for the second time. We are very pleased and grateful to the complete hotel staff.
The hotel complex is beautiful, built in the great 60's and 70', which we exceptionally like and is sorrounded by a beautiful green park, with many birds, cricketers, even squirrels, which is kept in exceptionally good shape. All rooms have a sea view, lovely terasses or balconies and are in close vicinity of the sea, a little old-fashioned, but clean and neat. TV in rooms are a little old and small, but they work just fine, and selection of channels is very good, with TV “Arte“, for us an indicator of a particular culture.The sea is very clean and warm.There is a big possibility to take walking and jogging beside the coast.

The restaurant is beautiful, clean, with two bigger terraces on which we had breakfast and dinner with great joy. The kitchen's head chef Antun is a true master of its trade, food is first class and fresh, there is a big choice of salads, stews, pies, nice cutlets and cheese, enough fresh fruit and cakes. Bagles and bread are exceptional. The food tastets home made, and we are sure many of the gests don't have the same at home. The restaurant staff could be more trained, they do not speak foreign languages
sufficiently

The reception functions flawlessly, all receptionists are well trained, they speak more foreign languages, we can't ask anything more from them, we have especially noticed Janos and Antonela. Hotel like this should have 4 stars, with minor restauration.
We thank to the whole staff on their hospitality. If life alowes us, we are 77 years old, we`ll come back next year.!

The hotel itself was great considering the price we paid, nice clean pool, room had comfy beds, hot shower and balcony (they all do I think, and they all kind of have a sea view as it's very close to the sea, however there are some big trees in the way). Being 90s kids we were delighted to discover a traditional silver box telly in our room.Still in perfect working order! Think it has one or 2 English channels but we didn't watch it much. However there were no facilities in the room like kettle or fridge, so I've gone for 4 stars.

The hotel has charming slightly old fashioned gold gilt and dark wood style decor.The buffet food in the dining room was plentiful and pretty good. There was a lovely dining terrace with views of the sea. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and towels were changed quite often and the bed was made every day and may have been changed I don't know.

In front of the hotel was the hotels 'beach' which is a concrete thing, as it's all rocks there, but I'm sure in summer they put sun loungers out, but we did have the feeling that we were a bit early for the season in may. Anyway a 15 minute walk along the front going with the sea to your left leads to a long stretch of nice beaches. The sand is builders gravel though so you might want to hire a sunbed and parasol, which is very cheap.

There is a campsite next to the hotel going the other way, and my biggest tip if you like a tipple is to stock up on red wine at the shop which wasn't open every day in May. Red wine because the room had no fridge you see. However as white wine drinkers we surprisingly enjoyed it very much as Croatian red wine is very light and fruity, like good Beaujolais. Especially the decent priced stuff in 1 litre bottles!

Anyway the only downside of the hotel, perhaps only a problem out of season, is the slight difficulty with public transport to the location.

At the airport this wasn't a problem, as a dodgy guy in a 'taxi' was adamant we were getting in his 'taxi' which was a clapped out ford panda with no sineage at all. Against our better judgement we hopped in when he slashed the price to 10 euro- probably cheaper than the 2 bus journeys required, and a lot simpler,it took about 15 mins the journey.

The buses were a nightmare on
croatia, so much better to hire a car in hindsight.It wouldn't have been so bad to explore via bus if we'd stayed in trogir, as there is a bus station where buses can take you to various locations along the coast. Trogir is the gorgeous nearby town which is a 20 mins walk away along the coast, with the sea at your right, go through seget Donji, through the shipyard, through the wasteland next to seget Donji church, turn right and follow the road.

We had to do this walk to get to the bus station in trogir, or take the excellent little boat that sails from in front of the campsite next door, that sails a few times a day as advertised on the board and is on time. This was because the bus that goes past the hotel may or may not stop for you at the bus stop (there are local buses that should,but not the coach style ones that go further afield probably won't) and would arrive who knows when.

Anyway if you are determined to explore the area around by bus, as we were, go from trogir bus station.We went to split the big and fantastic historic city a couple of times, omis kastela and Sibenik all lovely towns along the coast, and solin which is a very ugly town but has the Roman ruins of salona there, but a bit stressful knowing where to get off the bus for that, it's before you get on the dual carriageway to split.Then it's a bit of a walk up
the hill.

Also we went on a 5 island tour on a speedboat which we didn't enjoy too much as we got soaking wet. It was good to see hvar and vis though. We also went on a very cheap organised trip to Krka waterfalls which are beautiful and we would highly recommend.

Yes, it is true. Some rooms on ground floor have not enough sun especially in the morning due to the pine trees between the edifice and sea. Some people are lying on the grass in this area avoiding the sun.

I know that you can do the waterfall place because I did it. There is a man called Thomas on the beach path that does very good trips so you don't need to use the rep for all trips.
