Schöner Kurzurlaub in einem traumhaften Hotel
Hier war alles perfekt. Das Zimmer geräumig, modern und tip top sauber mit einer schönen Aussicht aufs Meer. Die gesamte Anlage ein Traum an einer wunderbaren Bucht gelegen mit kostenlosen Liegen und Handtüchern, sowohl am Pool, als auch am Strand. Das gesamte Personal freundlich und sehr aufmerksam. Das Frühstück, wie auch das Abendessen, beides in Buffetform, von der Präsentation der Speisen, über die Qualität bis zum Geschmack...hochwertig. Wir waren leider nur 4 Nächte, und bedauern nicht länger gebucht zu haben. Aber wir werden wieder kommen

8/10 Very good

Posto incantevole ma poco “privato”
Il luogo e’ bellissimo e il servizio ottimo (personale molto gentile e disponibile), l’unica pecca e’ che non si affaccia su un terreno privato (pineta e spiaggia) ma frequentato da tutti (bagnanti locali non a pagamento). Questo aspetto fa si che ci sia troppa gente intorno e si ha l’impressione di essere in un accampamento molto disordinato. Inoltre, esiste solo un ristorante nella struttura che serve il pranzo e con il fatto che e’ aperto anche ai bagnanti di passaggio e’ pressoche’ impossibile riuscire ad avere un tavolo.

Entspannung pur
Ein paar Tage Entspannung pur! Toller Pool und sehr sauberes Meer (Fels bzw. Kies). Schatten spendende Bäume…

10/10 Exceptional

Unser Urlaub war wirklich sehr schön, vorallem fanden wir das Personal im Hotel unfassbar nett. Ob es Renato am Empfang war oder Ivan, Andro, Petar, David, Bruno, Benjamin und und und von der Küche sowie dem Restaurant. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und können die Reise nach Kroatien nur empfehlen. Das Hotel ist großzügig ausgestattet und lässt daher keine offenen Punkte übrig. Die Reise nach Kroatien war allgemein sehr abwechslungsreich, da es eigentlich immer irgendeine Möglichkeit der Unterhaltung gab. Z.B. Gab es eine Schiffstour, welche am Hotel mit angeboten wurde. Diese ist auch nur zu empfehlen. Wir wünschen allen Mitarbeitern des Personals eine gute Zeit und freuen uns, wieder bei Ihnen Urlaub zu machen. Bitte bleiben Sie alle wie Sie sind. Und vorallem bleiben Sie gesund!
