In the Room
The location and access to sea was as good as possible for seaside holiday. The room was a clean and well-designed one.
One of the hotel facilities was not enough for the stayers who reserved a single room (dining facilities). To take my dinner, they showed me a place which was separate from the others. Because of that, I prefered to leave the hotel earlier than expected. Some of the staff (I.E. the waiters) would also learn English better for international communication. This hotel would be a good choice especially for the local families, but certainly not for international single travellers.
Excellent location for those who like swimming in the sea. You have to enter the sea like you enter a swimming pool, through metalic stairs. Not crowded, since the access to sea is not for small kids. Very nice restaurant near the sea, with excellent food for dinner and good breakfast. Parking lot available in front of hotel. Free wi-fi conection to Internet. Very friendly, nice lady at the reception!
Expensive hotel considering that it ranked as three star. You have to pay extra for Breakfast, a bit unusual these days. They don't have Credit card reader, so you must have cash when you check-out. The closest ATM is 20-25 min one-way walk from the hotel, since the hotel is quite far from Neum centre. My room was very small, suitable for a Single person, but they advertised and priced it as a Double, perhaps considering that bed was big. A glass of red wine wasn't included in the dinner's menu, so I had to pay for it almost the price of a bottle and it was really bad.
This was an unexpected gem when traveling through Bosnia, our apartment was large and spacious with french doors leading onto a private terrace with the most beautiful, amazing views of the Adriatic Sea and Neum.. We opted for half board, the breakfasts were tasty and the evening meals gourmet with a wide variety for a boutique hotel. The hotel and terrace gardens were immaculately maintained. Our apartment was 10-12 steps down to a private beach which was a great thrill for our three children.The French seem to have discovered this little hot spot. It is very good value for money, you would pay a lot more for a similar hotel in France, Italy or Australia. Our only regret was we couldn't stay longer.
It's in a really nice location and the rooms are very nice and clean. We liked the restaurant staff very much. It really is a beautiful clean place in a prime location.
Few things that we didn't like: the fact that breakfast was not included in the price since the price was a bit higher comparing to others. Price of the breakfast was a bit high but the dinner was fairly priced so it kind of balances out if you do both in a day but not if you just do breakfast. We also didn't like having to pay extra for wi-fi, chairs and umbrellas so we just didn't use any of those services but really for the price those should have been included.
This is a family owned hotel right by the water. We got a lovely reception from Diana, one of the daughters, and she was very helpful the whole time. The rooms are comfortable and have a fridge that you have full use of, and nice balconies overlooking the sea. The terrace and stairways are tastefully decorated by this plant loving family. The hotel serves excellent homecooked buffet food at a decent price. One night when there were only two couples for dinner, they let us choose what to cook.
It's a little hard to get to and from on foot. They charge extra for things like deck chairs and parasols, and in some cases for wireless internet (not for us, though, having booked through Booked.net). Being there out of season, you might be informed that the restaurant will not be open for lunch or dinner and you have to go somewhere else, which means a bit of a walk and paying more if you want to eat as good as in the hotel. We stayed six days, and this happened to us once.
From the moment we arrived , we were made to feel very welcome. Tereza is a wonderful hostess and went out of her way to please us. Comfort and meals were also very good at reasonable prices.
Beatiful location. Nice swimming area. Very friendly staff, especially the receptionist, who spoke perfect English and was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast and evening meals were very good value for money.
Although we requested and were told we could have parking for our hire car, on our final night were were told very abruptly by the manager to move our vehicle onto the street as he was expecting a small tour bus. The street is very narrow and as a result our car was scratched overnight, forturnatety, the hire car company did not think the damage was excessive and we did not have to pay fo any damage.
It was extremely clean, nicely furnished, lovely beach, good location for interesting trips (Dubrovnik, Mostar).
Deck-chairs on the beach were payable, although they belong to the hotel. Not a big deal but we would recommend the staff to include them into the room-price - just to pamper the guests.
Nicely located, family-style driven small scale hotel. Staff is very friendly and professional. Good food (buffet) in wonderful location with sea view. Value for money seems to be a guarantee. Clean and sober. No 'surprises' other that positive ones.
Nothing negative to say, just a tiny comment - I feel the sunchairs should be included in the prize, just to give you the complete 'private beach' feeling.
easy to reach (well positioned road signs)
