Hotel Donat all inclusive.

Posted May 18, 2017
Pros: The hotel siuted my needs I wanted a quiet relaxing break and thats what I had with enough sun and heat to get some colour.
Cons: The hotel is low rise with different sections but no lifts that I could see, so access for those with mobility problems could be an issue.
Location: The location on the Borik complex is excelent, 5 minutes walk from the shops and local bus, and 40 yards from the water front promenade.
Got what I think was a good all inclusive deal online, I had stayed at the old Hotel Zadar next door before the war about 1990 and had a great holiday, that hotel is now closed and used for staff accomadation. the Hotel Donat has a spacious cool loby come lounge and bar area with friendly staff with access to the quite large outside pool with clean clear water with sun loungers around it You take meals in the building opposite which has a very large dining room enough to take hundreds at a time, the buffet is set centraly in two parts hot and cold in two locations in the room there are help yourself drinks dispensers for jiuces wine and beer. Along with a selction of fish meats veg pasta cold salads and deserts there is a selsction of fruits on the desert table, so personaly I enjoyed the food. My room was clean had a good bathroom a comfy bed and an unrestricted view of the sea from the balcony which had a table and chair.

Pros: Seeing it in our rear view mirror.
The hotel itswlf is very dull and even the staff looked like they hated life. The room was ok but the bed was the WORST bed I've ever slept on. My back was in pain every morning and I literally couldn't sleep due to tossing and turning all night. The food was bland with very few selections, and mixed drinks are not included in the all-inclusive. The location is on a little pebble beach which would be nice in the summer but we came during the off season to avoid crowds. The Internet is decent so I was grateful to have at least one good amenity. I am a stickler for reviews and I hate to leave bad comments but spend your money elsewhere.

I didnt enjoy my stay at the hotel at all .....i found the hotel to be depressing .....some food was ok , breakfast was awfull ...couldnt believe there was no spirits to drink as it was all inclusive .... The hotel and bedrooms smelt of smoke to me , so many people smoked close to the hotel and around the pool ..... On a plus side the staff were friendly but i wouldnt go back there again

I had read all the previous reviews and it was exactly the same. The hotel needs an update. It's old and run down. Staff are lovely and the room was cleaned every day. The rooms are very small. The food was fine. A huge variety every day. Although it is very heavy food ~ lots of creamy sauces. The bus service from hotel to old town is very good and runs regularly. On our second last day a group of kids arrived and they were very noisy. I was thankful we were leaving the next day.

Donat Timewarp

Posted May 20, 2016 on Hotels
Hotel Donat is to be honest a little stuck in a time warp but is comfortable and has everything required for a relaxing holiday at a budget price
