We stayed at Falkensteiner Ladera Hotel for 7 nights half board from 2nd June through Secret Escapes. We`d read all the good reviews on T.A. and they`re all true!
We had room 1306 with excellent views over the pools and sea. Low odd or even numbers on this floor are ideal with direct sea views. Higher even numbers and you still see the sea but also look directly onto other rooms` balconies.Higher odd numbers have direct sea views.
Breakfast and dinner varied and very good. Gluten free corner on all buffets and all menus clearly show allergenics (important for us as gluten intolerant and cashew allergy)
Staff exceptionally smiley and helpful always .
Two bars /restaurants run by the hotel on the beach 5 minutes walk to left and right, ideal for pre or post dinner drinks and lunchtime/evening drinks or meals .Although notionally a public beach very quiet ,well lit and paved walks everwhere.
Nearest village Petrcane 40 minutes walk along the beach with 2/3 bar/restaurants on the way .
Had lunch twice at first restaurant by marina (Terraza Gasthaus) Scampi Risotto and Tuna salad plus drinks £17. Very helpful tourist office there too.
The hotel does offer private boat trips but seemed expensive. Porter recommended very good agency in Zadar which we used twice for a private 4 hour trip at around £80 daily
Zadar is around 20 minutes drive so hire car/taxi or limited bus service from Petrcane (and long walk) is necessary.
