On Arrival we were shown to our room, which was very clean with a great comfy bed, sofa , dining table and chairs, TV (which we never used) , a kitchenette and a shower room. The facilities were faultless and there was free WIFI even though we were a couple of hundred meters from the main hotel building. There are two pools, one near outside the annex we were staying in and one beside the main hotel, both were clean and well kept, every time we used them, there was no one else on them! The area is lovely, if its a relaxing short break you are after this is ideal, we could have happily managed for our 10 days without a car because there is a choice if 4 or 5 places to eat within a 15 minute walk, all around the harbour/ beach area, which was not too busy, and a small supermarket a short walk up the main road. We did hire a car so we could drive ( at our own pace) to Split and we decided to drive over the border into Bosnia and visit Mostar, definitely worth the drive! The hire car costs were very reasonable. There is also a boat taxi which will take you to Trogir, we used this a couple of times, but be aware it is an open boat so if it's choppy you might get a little wet, but that's all part of the fun..
The real star of this visit was the Staff at the hotel, they simply could not do enough for you, at breakfast they took care of our needs and certainly made sure we didn't go hungry, bringing us cakes and fruit on top of what we has got from the buffet and Omelettes/ poached eggs were made to order for us every day...and every day before we left breakfast we were given a plate of food, cakes and fruit to take with us for during the day, and on the day we had booked a boat trip we had fresh cookies baked for us, they were still warm! On our last night we were invited into the hotel dinning room where we were treated to a local dish of fish, potatoes and veg, this was a very nice touch, but even more, on our departure we the lady who seems to manage the hotel ( she seemed to be there 24/7) came and sent us off with Hugs and a bottle of wine..... I have stayed in some very exclusive hotels in my life and never had such fantastic celebrity service.... I would happily recommend this hotel and will be returning myself in the near future, no coincidence I guess that the people in the room next to us were on there second visit!
