          The view from the balcony was just beautiful. The room service was very good.

          The bathroom/shower/towels should be looked at!!!!!!

          Sun (on the beach) only up to 16 hours.The room is very stuffy (no air conditioner), if you open the window very noisily.

          The reviews are deceptive. The rooms are small and facilities are basic, but I don't see what else other guests can expect at this price. Staff were generally friendly and professional. The location is excellent and the rooms were clean and adequate for the price. Great resort with nice restaurants, but avoid if you expect sandy beaches.

          Outdoor pool is to be avoided, though swimming in the sea. Indoor pool was disappointing - strange smell.

          Just the location

          The hotel staff was not friendly when checking in. They had no record of our reservation as was weekend and the internet was only in the office. In fairness, they gave the room anyway and sorted out the confirmations the next day. The room was extremely hot, toilet not cleaned properly before we came. Checking out was easy, staff friendlier. But hotel old communist style architecture and service, it seems. Would not think it worth Euro 75-odd paid for the room.

          Hotel is directly on the beach, and in the center of the city. Good breakfast.

          limited parking space in front of the hotel. No air condition in the room.

          I would never go back to this hotel or to Opatija. On arrival they had lost our reservation and tried to give us different rooms from what we booked.The staff is rude and unprofessional, the hotel is old, the rooms are not on the best conditions with humidity in the walls and other problems. Absence of air conditioner. The breakfast they served was bad. The swiming pool is in a bad state.

          It wasn't to expensive. It's location was quite good.

          The room I got was small and didn't have a sea-view. The hotel is suitable for those who intend to spent the whole day out, and only sleep there. I wouldn't recommend it for someone who is looking for a place to rest and spend the day in.

          Nothing! To be honest it spoiled the good opinion of Opatije we gained on our last visit at a different hotel. To try to be supportive, it is well situated.

          In summer this coast is hot and the hotel has NO AIR CONDITIONING. There was no escape from the heat even when sleeping naked with the windows wide open. There was no really fresh food at breakfast and meat and cheese products were processed and inferior. Coffee was from a machine (diluted sweetened powder) and the juice was not fresh fruit juice but diluted squash. Although there was an extremely small stuffy elevator (full with 2 people + suitcases), it was impossible to get from reception to bedrooms or down to the pool etc, without climbing steps- absolutely no facilities for the disabled and old! This hotel was obviously dependent on short stay coach parties and was clearly not interested in its private clientele. To sit at breakfast was to watch exhausted coach party clients sit puffing and mopping their sweating brows. We felt it was run "on the cheap" with comparitively elderly staff. Although not an expensive hotel, for its facilities, service and quality of food, it was VERY POOR VALUE. Its basic requirements to bring it up to an acceptable standard are: Air Conditioning, lift facilities to all areas and better resourced, fresh food.

          I liked location, kind staff, cosy interior, good value for the money

          I didn't like lack of cooling system, it was too hot inside hotel, in the restaurant...

          Nothing, except the view from the see view room

          I can say with out any doubt that this hotel was the worst excuse for a hotel I have ever had to stay. The rooms were awful and extremely small, with dirty bathrooms. A group of my friends were also very upset about the way guests were treated there and the service provided. The breakfast was a joke and the baech was not even worth mentioning. I do not know who else rated this hotel, but if I had know I would never have chosen this one.

          The location is just on the beach of the cliff.

          Not air condition. The widows were on the street side and it was noisy.
