An excellent week away

Posted Oct 30, 2016
Pros: See above
Cons: Nope
Location: see above
We pick this hotel via Expedia for a week away in the October half term. We were travelling with three kids (8, 5 & 2 years old). The room was excellent with a queen bed for mum and dad, and a separate room with bunk beds for the two older boys and a cot for the little one. We also had a balcony and lounge area. We went all inclusive. Food was very good with plenty of choice. Free flowing beer, wine with meals and in addition some cocktails (from the bar area). There was a good soft play area for the kids (next to the bar ;-). Two pools (one heated) and a water slide. There is a beach next to the hotel and an outdoor play area. There are tennis courts and a gym (we did not take our kit so did not try - but looks very good). We spend most of the day in and around the hotel. We took a land train to Zadar one day (60 kuna one year for our family). There are excursions available if you want to do more. We flew with Ryanair from Manchester. From the airport there is a shuttle bus (25 kunas for the adults - kids free) which take you 5-6km from the hotel - we then took a taxi - 60 kunas. On the way back we ordered a taxi from the hotel - due to the size of the family it was 300 kuna's (i.e. we had a van). Overall we had a fantastic week away - very relaxing and for the price we paid very good value. Would recommend especially for those families with larger families (there was a number of families with three kids on holiday with us).

Disney-world type hotel meant for kids

Location: Near the old city
We were mislead. We were booked to a Falkensteiner Hotel Adrianna and found out the hard way that it was closed for the season and we ended up in this family hotel meant for kids with the only means of eating being at a buffet style serving many hundreds all at the same moment. What makes it worse is that we re-confirmed to be sure we had it right/

Dear Jim, first of all thank you for your comment for our Falkensteiner Club Funimation Borik**** here at Expedia! We are truly sorry to read that your stay in our hotel did not meet your expectations and that you did not have the chance to completely relax. Our sister hotel Adriana**** closed its doors for this season at the end of October and we tried to contact you and a few other guests beforehand in order to offer you an upgrade into one of our most spacious rooms with spectacular view of the Adriatic and the Old Town of Zadar. It is a mystery to us why you did not receive this information in time. We still hope that you will give us another chance in the near future in order to exceed your expectations and to cater to all your needs and wishes. In the meanwhile we wish you all the best! Kind regards, Ivan Polak & Team

Family friendly hotel in good location.

Posted Aug 5, 2015
Travelled with husband and two daughters aged 11 and 18 and stayed for 10 days. Staff welcoming and hotel v nice. Good choice of pools which were never overly full. The spa was excellent and treatments good value for money. Water sports are available a short way from hotel. Very few English guests and the entertainment is largely for under 8s

Lovely hotel, great staff and great food

Posted Apr 15, 2015
Pros: Everything !
Location: Zadar is a lovely town with shops and tourist attractions, there are excursions from the port. The sea organ was a great feature.
We loved our stay, didn't want to come home as it was April it was still a little chilly so we made use of the heated indoor/ outdoor pool, the all inclusive food was great and there was a lovely spa in the hotel. The room was lovely with a balcony and the beach is right next to the beach. We would definitely stay here again!

Nice resort hotel close to city core.

Posted Oct 7, 2014
Pros: Great amenities (ie pools etc).
Cons: Better coffee and wine in the dining room (ended up bringing our own wine since the included wine was so atrocious!)
Location: Easy access to old town which is definitely worth a visit.
Helpful staff. Nice room with balcony. Good food selection with the included buffet style meals.

Simply brilliant

Posted Jul 13, 2014
Pros: Everything, the great size of the family suite, the staff, the food and the facilities. It was also great having free wifi.
Cons: I am disabled and I could not get into the main pools as there are no hand rails to hold onto. I would recommend hand rails at all of the steps.
Location: Zadar old town is beautiful and we'll worth a visit. The supernova shopping centre is five minutes drive away and the marina is lovely.
We had a wonderful two week stay at this hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean and really comfortable. The food in the restaurant and snack bar was of an excellent quality and we were never bored with the menu. The hotel facilities are excellent and our two teenage sons had so much to do. The animation team really made the stay special. By day two they knew our names and made us feel so welcome. Miran, Bernarda and Danaiel were particularly excellent with all the sporting activities and the younger group Josepha, Valentina and Leo were brilliant with our boys. The reception staff and even the life guards especially Ante are so friendly and helpful. The jet skiing was brilliant and very cheap. Thanks to all the staff who made our holiday brilliant. I would recommend this hotel to anyone with children right up to teenagers.

Europe's answer to the Hilton!

Posted May 13, 2014
Excellent staff attitude combined with good facilities made our stay at Borik a memorable one. Our room was very spacious and clean, just what you want when treating yourself to a short get away break. The only thing I'd change would be the hard mattress. Will definitely return.

Pros: Waterslide and nice and spacious
Cons: Limited choice of drinks and adults taking too much advantage of the kids club and letting the kids fend for themselves most of the day.
Location: Not much to do nearby, but could have a walk along the beach or to a marina. Zadar is perhaps an hours walk away or 5-10 minutes on the bus.
Great facilities. The hotel is big which means that you never really struggle to find a seat at mealtimes or round the pool. A few small niggles - the all inclusive drinks were limited and the measures were small, the waterslide was only turned on after requested if the weather wasn't amazing, the staff could be friendly one minute and a bit ignorant the next. However saying this none of it made the holiday unenjoyable and I would definitely recommend it.
