Good kid friendly hotel, kids club disappointing

Posted Aug 22, 2016
Pros: Great facilities at your doorstep
Cons: Kids club for sure as this was a major selling point and the reason why we went to this hotel. More effort to help kids/parents settle in.
Building and facilities are really good and new. Seafront, playground, restaurants, nice pools on your doorstep. Don't expect staff to give you any intro or orientation for the services and facilities. We were given our key card on check-in and that was about it! The food was really good considering they are feeding the masses, and there are some quiet areas in the canteen away from all the noise. Lunch much isn't provided except to the children with a very strict time period. If your child doesn't eat their main fast enough the ice cream stall doesn't wait for them! So I wouldn't say mealtimes are very relaxing, except at breakfast. Baby club for the toddlers was very disappointing. They advertise a really good daily schedule, but actually, not enough children attend so they end up sticking loosely to the programme and have all the kids in one larger room, where they split them up a bit. Our 2.5yr old, arrived and was overwhelmed by older kids (eg up to 10 yrs) running around and grabbing toys. That he didn't have a chance to settle in. It was a less than calming experience for him and didn't help at all with any attachment issues in addition. This was the same for some other parents of young kids we spoke to. We tried for twice and each time he stayed about 30-60 mins, before they called us to pick him up. Also the staff aren't childcare professionals as they seem to be part of the general entertainment team. The main person was quite unhelpful and unfriendly

Nice friendly family hotel

Posted Sep 6, 2015
Pros: The setting, children's programme, the views from our balcony, the lovely friendly reception staff, boat trips, children's counter at dinner time
Cons: The quality of the free soft drinks on offer; the quality of some of the food on offer; more pool space and more outdoor restaurant space
Location: The location is beautiful. The excursions to nearby islands that the hotel organised were great; also the children's playground was lovely.
We spent 12 days in hotel Vespera and had a lovely time. The hotel is located in a beautiful pine wood, overlooking the sea and within easy reach of the town of Mali Losinj. The hotel is great for children as there is a lot of entertainment, children's club, free lunches and snacks for children. Pino and Pineta (the hotel mascots) were a great excitement for our 5 year old son. The reception staff were lovely, helpful, friendly, efficient, hard working. The waiting staff in the restaurant were variable; some were absolutely lovely, others had obviously forgotten to smile. There was a variety of food and in abundance although some of the food was pretty bland and needed some taste adding to it :) It was great that there was always fresh fruit and vegetables and fresh bread. We found a bit stressful. The restaurant was always absolutely full; it was a bit too big and too noisy for our taste. There were a few tables outside on the terrace and these were great, but one had to be at the restaurant on the dot of 6:55pm in order to get an outside table. Soft drinks were free, but the quality of these was very low (some were coloured sugary water) though many people drank lots of them, so some obviously liked them. There was a nice children's pool, but not many loungers around it. Also, there wasn't enough space around the bigger pool either. On the whole, the hotel needs more pool space and more outdoor restaurant space for the number of rooms it offers, but it is good value.

Mali Losin Family Vacation

Posted Jul 21, 2015 on Hotels
We had a lovely 1 week family vacation, where the hotel was great, food extraordinary (many choices of fish, meat, fruit and vegetable dishes) all fresh made from the cookes directly by the buffet. The hotel was good air conditioned (maybe sometimes too much, if yet get from 35° from outside to 20° inside the hotel - it feels very chilly). By the hotel is available a small tourist train witch drives by a schedule (extra payment needed), which drives you to the town Mali Losinj and its surrounding. If you have a bicycle with you it takes you around only 10min drive to the town Mali Losinj (we had bicycle with us). The sea was very warm (middle of July), only the beach is not so promising, as most of it by the hotel is rocky beach( not good if you have small children), you have only very few spots with gravel, which is ok also for small children. The hotel has also got two outside pools (one normal, one for small children with some playground toys). Our overall stay was very good, is some future will come again to this location.

3 times there

Posted Sep 19, 2014 on Hotels
We spent our holiday there for a third time, we were satisfied, meal service is brilliant. Just kids' animation program should be for younger kids as well (our daughter is 4) and it was to much talking for young kids especially hotel animation team should realized that there were many different nationalities. My suggestion is to rather play more scenes for kids than talking.

vespera 3rd time

Posted Jul 16, 2014 on Hotels
we have been in this hotel 3rd time... and I don't think so we will come back again...When I compare services, a state of overall services quality is descending from year to year... we came there this year in quite cold weather around 20'C,cloudy and often showers...we knew there is a open air jacuzzy...this year was even colder than an outside pool...what a shame, last year a nice coffee bar with ice cream just above main outside poll...this year has been changed to gym with hand full of people...bar is gone... animation program was not good as last and previous years as well...the only think which keeps its high quality is a food service,it was excellent as in previous years...

Vespera in Mali Lošinj, Croatia - great outdoors

Posted Oct 6, 2011 on Hotels
Hotel is located just out of town of Mali Lošinj close to the seaside in a pinewood. There are paved paths crossing the pinewoods and along the waterfront. Perhaps you can even spot some dolphins in the sea. Beaches are mostly rocky but you can find also some bays with peebles too. The hotel is a family hotel and the animation for kids seemed quite entertaining with a disco for kids after supper with a nice music mix animators and a mascot Pino (a pinetree). Hotel must have been recently renovated, room was clean and neatly furnished adding to a relaxing feeling. Food was great. Service as expected. Included towels for use at the seaside are also handy and can be replaced for a surcharge at the swimming pools.

Bis Sommer 2009 wird dieses Hotel komplett neu renoviert und wird laut Vorankündigung wunderbar!

Posted Aug 31, 2008
Das Nachbar- bzw. Schwesterhotel AURORA wurde bereits renoviert und wird den 4-Sternen mehr als gerecht! Daher kann ich beide Hotels Vespera und das Aurora nur weiterempfehlen ...auch wenn es preislich teurer wurde! LG, Chris
