As I was our first time visiting Croatia we chose this hotel as it had been recommended to us and it didn't disappoint. Clean hotel with enough to keep the children entertained, the food was good and had plenty of variety although pick your times carefully when to eat as it can be busy at times. Not much around the...

We stayed here with family. Nice big room, clean and big beds. Didn't like the bed cover as it just raped around the blanket and tuck in at the bottom so you have to fight you way out, but these is not a big deal. The food was ok. The staff could be nicer, I missed some smiles and the...

We had a great family holiday here this August. Nothing was too much for the staff at this hotel and they made all our children feel very special. The kids entertainment team and the fitness team were great. There were lots of activities on that we wanted to take part in - zumba, spinning classes in the pool! Every day...

We would highly recommend this hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and beds very comfortable. With regard to food, there was a good range each morning and evening mostly freshly cooked. The hotel is very near the sea.

We spent 4 days at this hotel in the middle of August, which is the holiday month for thousands of European children. and they seemed to be all there when we were.

It was very busy when we arrived due to a senior tennis tournament nearby. It's a huge complex and rooms are in various unattractive concrete apartment blocks that surround the main building. I imagine that this place gets VERY BUSY during the school holidays as there are many things for kids. Room was ok but obviously needs a little attention...

We were in Umag for a week with my family and our friends. The hotel was nice and comfortable at all points. The beach is not so far but it is rocky. If you want a sandy beach you need to walk 8-10 minutes. The breakfast and dinner was great but the hotel at this time was so busy so...
