Looks like the only 5 star nearest to Split.

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Great beach location. Good staff. Good breakfast buffet. Go for it.
Cons: Strangely, our rooms towels are a bit old...but everything clean (would have given score of 5 if perfect)
Location: A car hire is more practical. Must visit local islands.
Short drive from airport. Caution: locals rarely signal when changing lane or turning. Beach-front hotel with free towels/sunbeds for guests. Great hotel: worth the money (don't bother with a seemingly cheeper 4 star...) Crystal clear seawater. Courteous and helpful staff (all understand english). Most efficient were the waiters/tresses. We were there during the football world cup: so much fun watching the big screen with fans from Brazil/Germany/Holland/Japan. you name it, they seem to appear from their rooms. Worth hiring personal power-boat with driver for whole day: taking 4 of us to most of the surrounding islands with picturesque villages: why bother with the crowded cote-d'azure, this is so much better. Second time in Croatia (first was in Dubrovnik): people are so friendly and cosmopolitan. they don't stare like you are from Mars (we are British of Asian origin). It feel so safe to walk about. A curiosity about food prices: in posh hotels or local restaurants, similar food cost the same... Currency: accept both Croatian Kuna and Euros. There was an annual bash from Citibank staff, who took over half the hotel for a few days.

Our Croatian Holiday

Posted Jul 5, 2014
Pros: The pool, beach, breakfast, the boats in the marina. The Champagne Bar. The fitness center. The views were amazing!
Cons: Management needs to roam halls.Room service items left on table in our hall 3 days.Halls dreary, dingy and uninteresting.Should offer free cappuccinos
Location: Diocletian's Palace and the old city of Split. Sadly, missed Salona .Long worthwhile drive to Dubrovnik, gorgeous!.Croatian red wines are fantastic!
A lovely stay. Staff most helpful and friendly. Breakfasts were very good. Dinner in restaurant is OK, but better choices and quality in old city Split.Value for money not as good at hotel. Less money and better quality in Split. Coastal Experience was great, even though riddled with boat engine trouble, very rough seas causing extreme wetness and turbulent ride. Got back very late (wondered if we would make it back, but did at midnight). Skipper good natured as were other passengers. Great adventure. Fun to watch World Cup down at bar on the beach. Even saved us a table one night. Nice fitness center with amazing views. Beautiful pool, busy with children and families. Get a chaise early, but be aware other guests steal your towel and spot! Beach/pool staff very helpful. Level 1 down 120 hall-window looking out into rock cliffs...rubbish all on the ground. Hard mattress. But overall, a very good stay.

1 week stay in double room May 2014

Posted Jun 1, 2014
Pros: The cleanliness, all facilities were great, we felt totally relaxed. Nothing was too much trouble.
Cons: I can't think of anything
Location: slightly inconvenient for travelling to split centre but the taxi fare was around £12 and the journey was around 20mins.
Fantastic hotel, all the staff were extremely courteous and friendly. The room was beautiful, comfortable and very high standard. We had a slightly noisy air con unit in our room which we reported to reception, this was fixed immediately with no inconvenience to us. We were very impressed with the whole hotel

Likity Split....

Posted Nov 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
Great resort. Big rooms, great water views, and the service is faultless. Yes a little out of town but then you get front row to beach, large outdoor pool and awesome indoor pool. And don't forget the steam rooms.....eases all those travel aches. Got to say the only thing to improve is run the shuttle bus for free and more often. Enjoy.

Perfect Getaway; not for touring though...

Posted Oct 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel is a perfect beach resort getaway but it is not particularly convenient to tour neighboring areas without additional effort, and cost. With that in mind I highly recommend the location for the services they offer and the luxury they provide. The rooms are exceptionally clean, with beautiful views, and tremendously comfortable bedding and linen. The services on site range from a selection of restaurants, bars, and plenty of swimming options including an outdoor pool, an indoor pool, and a beach on the Adriatic Sea. Their Spa is also exceptional and perfect to help relax and unwind.

Great hotel beside the beach & Marina

Posted Sep 25, 2013
Pros: Everything
Cons: Free pick up service to & from airport & free shuttle bus
Location: About 20 mins drive from split but still plenty to do in immediate area. Great walks along beach,& Split is an historical city with fascinating alleys
Really great hotel, requested a seaview room, got it without any hassle. Balcony was huge. Only had breakfast there but great choice every day. Pool facilities excellent. Beach great but do need rock shoes as pebbly beach.lovely restaurants all around which can be reached easily by foot walking along the beach, or can catch local bus into Split 20 mins away. This bus can be caught just outside the hotel & is cheaper than the hotel bus. Split is fantastic with a great cosmopolitan feel to it.

Excellent modern and comfortable hotel

Posted Sep 13, 2013
Pros: Very modern with clean and comfortable rooms . Good facilities, pool,spa, beaches, restaurants and even a nightclub. Staff friendly and helpful
Cons: More frequent shuttle service as at some times during the day there were times when greater availability would have been helpful .
Location: Split has a number of interesting attractions including Roman ruins and there are water sports and trips you can make (albeit can be expensive )
Good facilities in a quiet location - hotel and marina were excellent . Ideal for a relaxing holiday which suited us. Seems to be a popular place for conferences . Podstrana has very little in the vicinity and is not close to Split , so you will be limited to few bars and restaurants in and around the hotel but the hotel does provide (at a fee) shuttle service throughout the day and evening. If you like walking you can walk along beachfront which is beautiful but proper paths are not widely available and roads can be busy

Dear Bill, Thank you so much for taking time to write your thoughts and for your kind words of praise. Our shuttle bus costs 20kn per person in one direction which works out as roughly €2.50 - a great and very cheap alternative to taxi. Thank you and hopefully see you back soon!

High quality service

Posted Sep 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
We were thoroughly impressed with the quality of service provided by all hotel staff, from the ladies at reception to the men by the pool. Although the interiors are somewhat outdated, the rooms were very big and comfortable. The bathrooms were spacious also. The hotel's many different cafes and restaurants were extremely convenient. A must stay for anyone visiting split!
