Rated 5 out of 5 by gojko88 Best Property in Central Dalmatia
I've recently completed a one-night stay in this hotel as part of a business trip, and was quite amazed to see a hotel adhering to all international 5* standards (which often isn't the case in these parts). It should be noted, however, that the location is fairly remote, with public transport connections scarce and taxis expensive, so those who need to travel to Split proper should beware. The hotel itself is huge, with plenty of common areas and places to have a relaxed conversation over a drink. The check-in was efficient, the staff pleasant, and I even got upgraded to the largest non-suite room due to my SPG Gold status, which was a very nice touch. The rooms are modern, well-furnished and very spacious, which goes for the bathroom as well (separate bathtub and shower cabin in my case). All in all, everything one would expect from a 5* property. What truly distinguishes this hotel, however, is a supreme Mediterranean restaurant with an excellent atmosphere, as well as a fairly big pool/spa complex, with affordable massages and other treatments. Definitely a place to relax for the weary traveller, and by far my favourite property on the Croatian coast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vincos A BEAUTIFUL RESORT AND SO MUCH MORE
OVERALL IMPRESSION: One is struck immediately by the modern grandeur of this property with its enormous expanse of marble lobby and views to the Adriatic Sea behind. The positive impression is reinforced by the well-kept grounds, beautiful dining and drinking venues, striking infinity pool and elaborate spa. Throw in proximity to some of Croatia’s most worthwhile sights and you have a property that is hard to surpass.
SPG RECOGNITION: Excellent - full frontal sea-view suite. Platinum Breakfast is full buffet in the main restaurant.
THE ROOM: Upbeat but simple seaside resort style but you can definitely feel you are in a Meridien. Large suite with spacious double balcony and gorgeous view.
LOCATION: Directly on the beach overlooking Split across the Bay. Do be aware that the hotel is not in Split per se but Podstrana some 10kms away.
EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS: The quality and extent of facilities of the Spa - this is not your ordinary “let’s throw in a spa as an afterthought” but a full-fledged “Kurhaus.”
DID NOT MEET EXPECTATIONS: Given the location of the property I find it disappointing that the hotel does not offer a year-round complimentary shuttle service into Split centre.
ONE THING TO KNOW: For a typical dining experience and excellent introduction to Croatian cuisine, don’t miss an opportunity to dine in Pivnica across the forecourt.

We were treated extremely well. The front desk manager especially went beyond our expectations to accomodate our room request. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. Food at the hotel was delicious, the servers were friendly. The spa was clean and the staff was well trained.

The hotel was very good. The restaurant, pool and spa were superb. The front desk and concierge were patient, friendly and helpful. Our internet did not work in the evening. I was to meet with the IT person the next morning, but was not able to, as it was a national holiday. The very kind front desk upgraded us to a sea view room, which was unexpected, but very appreciated. This is the kind of personal touch that makes it easy to stay here the next time we visit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by History28 A jewel in the Adriatic
We had not much prior knowledge of the hotel as it was our first trip to Croatia. However, what a delightful surprise in so many ways. We had used one of our suite upgrades and had a room on the top floor with a wrap around patio overlooking the Adriatic. There is so much to do and see at this resort, that we only wish we stayed more than one night. The spa services and health club are outstanding, the champagne bar is a treat, our meals were also quite good, and there is a casino. We highly recommend this resort and we will return for a much longer stay.

This hotel far exceeded my expectations. The staff were ever willing to offer assistance even before you asked. They were pleasant. The food was fantastic too.
The view from the hotel was probably my favourite thing about it. The champagne bar was a wonderful way to spend evenings.
I have no complaints whatsoever. Would love to return to this hotel soon.

We loved this property especially for the value. The staff were uber friendly and accomodating. Gabriel by the pool knew us from the first day we got there and was very helpful. Enjoyed the spa and played tennis - all great value. Only negative was the shuttle service which did not come as we were not aware (after calling concierge and all) that you must pay for ahead of time. Other than that - great property and had a wonderful oversize sea view room.
