    The building infrastructure is a bit oldish: i.e. rooms not very new in style (though rather confortable); elevators' doors work in a chaotic way. Restaurant offer (half board) satisfactory, but not really charming. The coffee and juice for breakfast are of poor quality (you'd better get a coffie from the bar). Wifi very poor most of the time.

    Excellent location, beautiful beaches around the hotel, several beaches with easy access to the sea also with very young children (1-4 y). Pine trees offering shade. Marvelous view from balcony (and from beach). Friendly reception staff. Nice park.

    Bedroom (unconfortable bed & very small bathroom). Bedroom view (swimming pull instead of sea, very noisy) This is far away from a real 4 stars hotel comfort.

    This review is provided as assessment according to the hotel category 4 *; wifi did not work the best (intermittent); Air conditioning is quite inefficient (heating, cooling did not work as well); room, especially the balcony is not in the range of hotel category 4 * (Specific, I must stress that the appearance of the balcony as a return to the era of socialism); much too soft pillows, and also matress are low cost; much too small selection of TV programs during the digital age; dinner is solid, but there is lack of choice, for example, for vegetarians there is almost nothing. I have to emphasize inconvenient and unnecessary presence of the (not so friendly) chief of the restaurant in a black dress, which is nonstop walking, at least in my opinion without any need. Again, this works very unprofessional, because one has no sense of what he really did there?

    The excellent location of the hotel, the wonderful surroundings of the hotel, beautiful beaches and clear sea, friendly staff (at least most of them), a modern reception and an outdoor pool with sun loungers (in contrast to the rooms and the balcony!).

    WI fi was sporadical. Pillows too soft.

    Nestled into a forest of Mediterranean pines and shrubs, in a beautiful area of natural inlets and calanques. Good restaurant on the pool's side. Breathtaking views from the upper floor. You can walk to a dozen different spots for swimming in crystal clear waters.

    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children

    Food is OK, but nothing special, I was able to find every day something for me, but choices was very limited. Kitchen is not worth 4 star hotel - somme 2 star hotel has better buffet. Hotel is old, and it does not look like 4star hotel, maybe better 3 star hotel, furniture has his best days in the past, now it slowly come to the point, when it will need refurbishment. Bed are nor comfortable at all - probably very old and very soft mattresses. Hotel is clean, placed in very nice place next to the water, but very expansive for value which you get. Lets say it is nice 3 star hotel with 2 star kitchen placed at 5 star surroundings - very beautiful bay. This bay (Suha Punta) is really very nice piece of island Rab - probably the best.

    Hotel is situated at very nice place - Suha Punta is most beautiful part of Rab island, clear water, nice nature surroundings, many pinia trees, relatively calm place, ideal for families with children. I liked especially, that this is not crowded, there are of course plenty of people, but not " too much" people like in other places in Rab - for example Rajska Plaža (Lopar) is very crowded.

    Not enough parking space. We were guests before the season started and had issues with parking. I don't even want to think how it looks like during high season. WiFi was very bad - connection kept breaking, so I did not use it at all. Also, evening program would be appropriate for 1980's but not anymore - but I've seen it in other places as well on Croatian coast. One guy, playing the synth and singing trash songs.

    Location is good, very nice nature and beaches. Rooms are comfortable, clean, we had a lovely view on the sea side. Food was good, both breakfast and dinner.
