This hotel is very outdated and dirty. When I arrived at 11pm I was told that there was no all inclusive and the bar had closed so I could not even buy a bottle of water. The first room I was shown too was cramped and dirty and all I could hear were the loud teenagers in the games room...

Okay. The hotel is old style. But cleaning is top. Also the food is average and the staff is friendly and kind. Also the price is not to high so you could not expect a top food and a briliant new hotel. It is average.

Me and my husband got back from Zadar on the 11th October, We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and that was enough, not much around the hotel.

The agency I booked through made a mistake so I did not get the room in Funimation Borik. The receptionist offered hotel Donat, said it was ***, and that the price is 75 EUR per night. I accepted as I was in a hurry. When I got to reception (in Donat A) I was greeted by polite receptionist who unfortunately...

A great price/value choice. We spent 5 nights in beginning of October in the Hotel Donat. Overall it was a great holiday. Do not expect outstanding details in a 3* Hotel, built a long time ago. But!

I have been to a two star hotel in Croatia and it was not as bad as this one, which has three stars. The food was terrible. One of us was vomiting and got diarrhea. The buffet was too small. If you did not get to the restaurant on time, you had to wait in line and you may not...
