    Twin beds instead of double, awful cleaning and problems with electricity.
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children
    • Double Room with Balcony and Sea View
    • Stayed 3 nights

    1. Although description on booking says "Double bed", we got twin beds and the staff said there were no rooms with a double bed at all. It was quite uncomfortable because we had a little child sleeping with us; all other options would cost extra money, staff declined to offer us anything for free, although they gave a misleading description on property page. 2. Cleaning in the rooms was awful, they just tucked away the beds. 3. There were several times when the lights went off for several minutes. Would not reccomend this hotel, in spite of great sea view and the proximity of Sakarun.

    The view from the room was great. The food was ok, but not perfect. Cocktails at the bar - quite good :) I think it's the most decent hotel around Sakarun beach. Has a nice little playground for children.

    Pleasant but overpriced.

    The facilities e.g. the gym we're in bad condition, to the point of being dangerous. Also, we had to pay extra to use it. The rooms were outdated for example the shower in the bathroom was shoddy considering the amount of money we were paying. Meals were very uninspiring and the staff sometimes a little lacklustre.

    The location and range of facilities was good.

    Food is average and although we had a half-board included still we had to pay for the drinks at dinner - even water.

    Location is awesome, right next to the sea. Very clean.

    Beautiful view, but could be better.

    • Double Room with Balcony and Sea View
    • Stayed 2 nights

    No wi-fi in room and manager not willing to let guests check out any time after 10:00 a.m. even if feasible. This policy is too strict and not helpful for hotel guests who need some flexibility. Could also hear people walking in room above me.

    Location and sea view from hotel room balcony.

    Why the same problems 2 years in the row?

    • One-Bedroom Suite with Balcony and Sea View
    • Stayed 11 nights
    • Submitted via mobile

    The bathroom wasn't cleaned upon our arrival (the sink had boogers in it, toilette brush was worse than awful), the window was open and rain flooded one part of the room, the staff didn't exchange wet cushins on terrace for a few days, the staff didn't fill up liquid soap in the bathroom for 5 days, parasols by the pool were broken 2nd year in the row, shower by the pool wasn't clean, sattelite tv signal (and programmes) were less than poor. It is almost uncomprehensible that the staff didn't change the one (old) CD and the music for the diner and the breakfast for the 2 weeks we've been there - I love croatian music, but what is too much is too much (I believe that that was the same CD they've been playing for the last 2-3 years). Wi-fi was available just on the reception desk - don't tell me that it's problem to put one extra AP on each floor... It's really shame that all the problems repeat through the years. The beauty of the sea isn't good enough for that price.

    Peaceful, close to the sea, the sea is beautiful, big and comfy suite. The train that takes you to Sakarun, a beautiful beach.

    Extra cost for the facilities

    Nice position and super friendly staff. The best thing was the pool and how close it is to the beach.

    The personal hygiene of the waiter Ivo Not enough variety of breakfast and closes too early The spa area smells of cigarettes and the pics on the website do not represent how it is in reality. The ferry connections are not as easy or as frequent as advertised on the website (ie only one ferry from Bozava to Zadar at 05.30!).

    The room, balcony and location were excellent. Friendly and helpful receptionists. The massage at the spa was very good. Not surrounded by other tourists Close to lovely beaches

    unexperienced receptionists uninformed about beaches and happenings in the island, noisy air-condition, room wasn't properly finished - the refrigerator was on the floor, second room was usable only as a storage room. only 3-4 ferries per day to get on Dugi otok island - we missed a last ferry due to a traffic accident on out way down and had to sleep over in Zadar. lot of scary cats with big heads unwilling to cuddle :)

    Swimming pool, parking place, clean sea, beachside, lot of trees, comfort and size of the room, big screen tv, big bathroom, small village with only a few tourists and almost no noise. not for families with small children - just 1 playground and not a single theme park - just clean sea and beaches. a lot of scary cats with big heads willing to cuddle :)
