    This hotel is a tipical "mass tourism" place. We had all-inclusive, which sounds good, but althought the breakfast and the dinner selection was wide, the quality of the food is so-so. After some days it was a bit boring. There was some program every evening- which was loud and noisy sometimes until 23.00.

    Very good location if you want to enjoy the see, there is "sand" on the ground in the water and enought place for your to take your towel. Hotel is just on the beach. It is 15 minutes to get the Umag old-city with small tourist-train.

    My opinion: 3* hotelan be a good vacation to stay but only if you receive a good price....

    1. old furniture - I agree with some of the opinions here that the hotel should undergo renovation - the main lobby is very nice and the hotel interior itself is painted in light, summer colours. But apart that, when you look more carefully, you see old furniture, doors, walls, heaters, equipment...definitely lacking the 4* rating 2. all inclusive, but average taste of the food, nothing special, no culinary experience

    1. excellent location - near the sea, near tourist train stop, beautiful pine tree forest. Nice beach with a good build-in concrete sea access 2. parking - a huge free parking space in front of the hotel

    Hotel staff - very friendly and always willing to help. Food was great, rooms every morning cleaned up, location of the hotel is just great, evening's music / dance entertainment was cool. With the last point - if you have small kids, I strongly recommend rooms with park view as the stage is next to the pool, on the see side.

    What would be to improve is, first of all, electronics in the room. TV, hair drier and air conditioner seem to be there from 90s. Very used bicycles. Also we struggled with door lock, which didn't manage to read the card from the first attempt. Three times we asked for improvement, some measures were taken, but unsuccessful.

    We have been in Croatia for a third time, but at this hotel we stayed for a first time. We like a location of the hotel, quite interesting evening animation (as for Croatia), the quality and diversity of the food. The snack bar was really helpful if you miss your chance to eat in the main restaurant.

    They do not deserve 4-star **** title. We have been in better Hotels with 3-stars *** where the service and clenaness was better. 1. Suspicious and distrustful aproach of the receptionst in the moment of check in. She wanted full charge for the stay to be payed in advance although credit card was used as a guarantee for the payment on booking.com reservation. 2. Drinks with the meals are too expensive. 3. Toalet paper is very thin - one ply. 4. Sheets change is every third day ? It seems that this Hotel is trying to save on commodity of their guests.

After midnight there no bar open (inaccettable the first week of august!)
