We are a family of four and we stayed in this hotel with a deluxe seaview suite. The suite itself had a separate living area but was not as large as we expected it would be so we were cramped with a family our size. The Junior suite would have been cheaper when we were there and I wonder if it may have afforded more space?
Also the seaview we had was not as spectacular as I expected. It was diffuse to see out of one corner window and there were trees in the way. So not an unobstructed seaview at all.
The pool was lovely but very small for a hotel of this size. While we got a subbed everytime we used the pool we were always grabbing the last two so the hotel is in need of a larger pool area to cater for all guests. Also the poolside service for drinks and snacks was slow. Not slow to bring orders but slow to ask if you would like to order anything. The bar is quite a distance from the pool.
The breakfast buffet was good. Not an extensive selection but you can order ala carte and the pancakes were worth ordering.
One of the big issues for us was he lack of casual dining options for lunch. There is one restaurant only and it is a fine dining restaurant which is not ideal when you are seeking a quick family lunch. We had a lovely lunch there the first day but feel it was very pricey for what it was.
The service everywhere was very friendly and attentive and staff were happy to help us arrange excursions etc.
The rooms and hotel interior generally were lovely and have been very nicely updated not too long ago, while still maintaining that "grand old hotel" feel.
The location of this hotel was not ideal. We were repeatedly told we were less than a 10 minute walk from the old Palace area but each time we walked it with the children it was at least 20 minutes and there are hills so it is by no means a gentle stroll. We ended up resorting to taxis later in our stay instead. Although it is worth noting there is car parking at this hotel. Also there are very few casual eating places in the vacinity outside the hotel so it is not easy to pop out for a casual dinner a block or two from the restaurant. Travelling further afield closer to the old palace is required for more dining options.
All in all we as a lovely stay here and would return for sure if we are in the area again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Searching for an ideal spot in which to build his impressive palace, 1700 years ago the Roman emperor Diocletian decided to settle on the Adriatic Sea coast which is bathed in Mediterranean sunshine for 270 days a year. Today, the palace represents the historic center of the city of Split and is under the protection of UNESCO. In the course of the centuries from the construction of the palace until today, numerous statesmen and aristocrats, distinguished businessmen and politicians, the elite of the European cultural scene, as well as a number of popular movie and sports stars have been coming to Split for a royal treatment. Since 1921, Park Hotel has been the only prestigious hotel in this part of the Mediterranean to provide such impeccable service and elegant ambiance within the stone walls of its sophisticated establishment.
