We stayed 5 nights in the hotel on a half board basis. We had a room on the fourth floor at the front with a small balcony and wonderful view of the harbour. The room and bathroom were of a very good size and very modern and tastefully decorated. The corridors and public areas are also stylish and very well presented. On some evenings the tripper boats had night time events with loud music but with the double glazed balcony doors that was not a real problem. The receptionist was very helpful and staff in restaurant friendly. The half board menu is probably set for some time but had enough choice for our stay; food was relatively simple but well cooked and sitting outside you have an excellent location so we were pleased to have taken the half board option. Breakfast is served in the first floor restaurant with outside area and a good buffet range. The lady who cleaned our room was friendly and very efficient - first time I have found a room cleaned by the time we returned from breakfast!
We came to Makarska after 5 days in Bol on Brac which had a different atmosphere. Lots of families in both but also more of a clubbing atmosphere in Makarska. The harbour area and old streets above were very attractive and there were concert performers in the square on two evenings. The main beach when we visited in July was very busy. Some sun loungers for hire but most shade provided by trees. Noticeable that wine and beer prices in Makarska were a little lower than Bol.
We walked one morning to Tucepi which took about an hour through the woods. Bit confused by some paths but I suspect that most main ones ended up in the same direction and made a nice change of beach. Taxi back (on advice of waiter we asked one of the hotels that front the beach to order one for us which they did with no problem) cost about 100 kn.
Swimming pool area very small and we did not use it.
