Split, Croatia
Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

We were there last summer. This is very expensive hotel for Croatian standard but we wanted to gave us something special. Hotel is 4 star -BUT only on paper. Dirty room, overpriced, overcrowded, prices of drinks for dinner are - sick. There are so many better choices in Istra for great hotel and vecation. NEVER again, AVOID this one.

This hotel is one of those to stay away from. The food choice is very poor, meals not well cooked, desserts pityful...

For breakfast old croissants who have seen better days and...

It is not easy to describe my experience with this hotel. Parking, check-in and check-out super fast, no complaints. Further on... different story. Corridors leading to rooms have so many stains on the floor that it is simply unacceptable. Cleaning was poor in our room as well. Besides our room was quite spacious but rather soulless overlooking main road to...
