Bluesun Hotel Soline
Ranked #1 of 10 Hotels in Brela
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 April 2015

We are a mixed British/Bosnian Croatian couple and have been coming to Brela for years, it is a stunning location, very quiet even in mid Season, we thought we'd come down for a relaxing long weekend a month before the season starts, it was a bit of a mistake for several reasons.

None of the shops, Cafes and Restaurants were open apart from 1 restaurant and 1 cafe, our favourite restaurant The Feral was unfortunately going through refurbishment. Brela is too quiet this time of year, the Hotel was busy at meal times, mainly German coach parties.

We've been coming to Soline for years, however we were extremely disappointed with the room this time, it appears they have recently refurbished the rooms and bizarrely they have added a large window in the toilet on the bedroom side! there are blinds but fully they do not fully close, it may be romantic for couples on their own but surely no one likes to watch their other half sitting on the toilet! a really strange refurbishment to be honest, added to this the bathroom doors have been changed to sliding doors that do not close correctly either! the room itself is comfortable enough and with Great near sea views, you have a good sized television, balcony area, mini-bar (the majority of Europeans like to have tea and coffee making equipment in the room, the Soline does not provide this!

Our son was really looking forward to the swimming pool, we spent all of 5 minutes in there before having to retire to the room, the architecture of the pool provides for an awkward entry to the water, the sides are curved so you need to go in from one of the ladders, my Son went to go down one of these but it was a bit shaky and he ended up falling and crashing against the side on his chest, he was in pain for the remainder of the night, they should sort this out prior to the season!

On a positive side, the Soline is in the Best location in Brela, the beach is a few metres from the Hotel entrance, the whole area is shaded by beautiful trees, the food (Breakfast and Evening Meal that we had) were outstanding, a great selection and Great value for money!

The Soline's STaff are the best point of the Hotel, to a person they are very helpful, polite and professional, the rooms are cleaned to a high standard, Thank You to All the Very Kind, Pleasant Staff and we will Visit again, this time though in the Summer Season and NOT either side of it when nothing is open.

Please amend the ridiculous bathrooms i.e. the Voyeurs Only Bathroom Window! what is the point of that?! and the dangerous pool edge and ladders.

Dear Truffles_EOD,

thank you for sharing your holiday experience with us and giving us such a high rate, despite the fact that it was very early season and many shops and restaurants were closed. We hope you at least had the chance to relax properly. We appreciate your compliments on our staff and service.

Thank you for pointing the problem with the pool to us, we will make sure to fix it. We pay special attention to safety, especially when it comes to children. We apologize for the mishap.

As for the bathroom window, the architect's idea was to provide the sea view from every angle in the room. We are aware that it may be a problem for some guests, thus the shutters in the bathroom.

Anyway, we hope your overall vacation wasn't ruined and that we will have the opportunity to welcome you gain.

Best regards,
Matko Ribicic

Stayed there twice, hasn't changed much from when I was a kid. Really great value for money - everything is great, from the food, rooms, spa area... How this hotel has only 3 stars, beats me, should be 5...

We stumbled upon this magnificent Hotel after a long day of driving and the friendly welcome by Ljubica. Her smile and assistance ( I had just lost my cellphone) was just incredible. Nothing was too much trouble, even calling in the Duty Manager Matko, who also tried his best to get my problem sorted. Had it not been for the hiccup of my stupidity...the stay at the hotel would have been on the top of my list! Thank you to you both, you are a credit to a fabulous hotel! Stay here, it will be so worth your while!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view.....when booking!

My 1st trip to Croatia and not disappointed.
Fairly easy drive from Split airport along the coast with stunning views. Rooms are finished to a high standard. Staff are friendly. Breakfast and dinner is buffet style and good choice. Pools are nice. Hotel is a little confusing to navigate at first, would have been helpful if we had been given more instructions at check in. My only minor gripe. We had a couples spa Aquaroma Treatment and had a complaint, which reception said they would look into. We were staying another 2 days, but heard nothing. On check out, I had to ask what had been done and was begrudgingly given a 15% discount for the problem. Would have been much better if it had been offered without me having to ask.
We also took the opportunity to drive to Mostar in Bosnia, around 2hrs away. Definitely worth the trip, but have some Bosnian Marks ready for parking meter! Surprisingly, the Mostar shops and restaurants excepted Croatian Kuna and Euro's!
Brela was a little quiet for me, but stunning and hotel is fab. Also, price of food and wine etc is very reasonable.
Large proportion of retired German couples, nice and polite, but no partying going on here!!!! So if you want a relaxing break with early nights, excellent value for money and stunning scenery, this is a great choice.

We stayed in bluesun soline hotel in Brela. It was amazing cause we like the hotel and the beach. The breakfast and dinner were very tasty. The location was perfect near Brela's best beaches and the walking area. You can take the Soline's dinner anytime paying only 20€ for two adults.
