We booked the Park Hotel for the end of our family holiday to Croatia. We already had an amazing cruise along the Dalmatian coast so we were looking forward to chilling out before we return home.
The Park Hotel and especially the staff rounded off our last two days in Croatia with aplomb. The service was truly amazing from the moment we arrived. Every request was carried out timely with reassuring confidence.
The pool and outdoor terrace area was a real hit with the kids. It is wonderfully maintained and the water quality is superb - no red chlorine eyes to be had here.
The rooms are very tasteful decorated and the beds in particular are very comfortable. Everyone in our party of seven reported an excellent night’s sleep. Roberto Cavalli toiletries are provided in the large en-suites. As a sign of the extra lengths the management have gone to provide a truly exceptional service they provide for a shoe shine service where one leaves your shoes in a beautifully lined box for housekeeping to collect! I have travelled extensively globally staying at star 5 international hotel chains and I have never come across this service. Turndown service dispensed with the usual chocolate on the pillow that hotels, if offered, provide and in its place was a scrumptious homemade cookie. The little differences do make all the difference.
Breakfast was also excellent with an extensive hot and cold buffet selection. One can also have other hot dishes to order - my Eggs Benedict were as good as they come. We had lunch on the day we arrived and if there is one small quibble it would be in the portion size of an otherwise very tasty shoulder of lamb cooked suis vide.
Another stand out moment was when the Reception Manager, Marco, provided us with water and snacks for our walking tour of the city.
This was my first time in Croatia and I will be back. I will be sure to book the Park Hotel again when I do return, without a shadow of a doubt.
