The hotel is nice, clean and quiet. The beach is ok. The buffet breakfast is acceptable but nothing special. The choice and quality of fruits was poor. When you look back to the hotel from the old town of Vodice, you can be easily shocked. The hotel really does not fit into the view :(
Food choice and taste was very poor. It is the worst offer of food compared with a lot hotels we stayed in Croatia, including 3 stars hotels. There is always some kind of bad smell coming from the bathroom. It even also felt in wellness. Outside pool is nice but the whole experience not so, because of the reasons above. Not recomended.
Liked · Very nice and clean and calm hotel with white design I liked, nice design of inside area, with wide spaces, terraces Very nice sea view from our 38m2 deluxe junior suite from 2nd floor on pool area, and on nearby hotel Olympia sky, and on the sea and islands - amazing! We had three balconies. We went to look into nearby Olympia sky hotel, and even it is much more expensive, I would prefer our Olympia hotel. Having sunset and drinks on our balcony Nice new and clean pool area - good for kids and adults Sometimes delicious food on dinner and breakfast Fresh fruits water red and yellow melons, pineappl, grapes, plumbs ... always in the offer, no shortage Wide variety of dinner meals - first half of our stay the food was delicious, but when September started, the main dinner food was not so tasty Outside playground for kids Very nice pool bar in nearby hotel Olympia sky on 8th floor with nice view on Vodice open till midnight Our suite was in fact two rooms, which was good, when kid had after lunch sleep, we could close the door in this room Quiet area - not on busy street Staff on the reception helpful Close to the beach Close to the Sibenik and Krka park we have visited the beach in SRIMA more suitable for children with sand in the water, according recommendation staff from reception, is 5 minutes drive by car, and we were happy, we stayed there all day, is more spacy, calm and there are better kids entrances to the sea, also playground and bars and restaurants Very nice half day trip to KRKA national park, we went by car about 25 minutes to SKRADIN and then we took boat to waterfalls, it is better then from Lozovac entrance I did many years ago. We also went to sandy beach SLANICA on Murter island which is around 24 km away - 30 min drive. When we came there I did not see any sand on the beach :-). The sand in fact is in the shallow sea bay, but you have to get there through the rocky entrance, beach was crowded, narrow, with toboggans and I did not like it. Disliked · Some staff - in pool restaurant was unpolite and unfriendly, we wanted to have some lunch meals, and sit down and wait, nobody took care of us, when asked if we could make the order, the staff was nervous and shouting to us, that she is busy and we should wait. We decided to go out of hotel to get some meal. Cold water in the pools and also in the sea even we had nice sunny days with temperature around 25-27, but according reception staff the cold water was due to windy weather Narrow beach and too crowded beach Some problem with air condition, which we did not want to use, but after switching it off, it was automatically switch on after while when kid was sleeping there generally most of the staff seems to me was very sad, forgot to smile a little bit :-) Small problem with room safe, which was unable set it according instruction, we have to ask to fixed it The bed in our suite was quite narrow for two adults approximately 160 cm, we would prefer around 2 m, that 2 years old kid could sleep with us, but we asked for baby cote The last two days of our stay, they changed the opening hours of restaurant, ( nobody informed us) the restaurant was too busy - crowdy and there were queues on meals.…
This was the second time we stayed at Hotel Olympia as a family. For me personally it was the fifth time. As always we had a great stay. The staff is always friendly and willing to help. The food is good but dinner could use some more variaty and service was somewhat chaotic at times. We had a junior suite which was fine but the rooms could use some renovation in the coming years because they are starting to get a little bit outdated. The pools and poolbar are great but especially for the kids it gets boring after a week. Maybe its an idea to build an extra pool between the relax pool and the tennis area with some nice waterslides!? Overall always great to be back, hopefully next year!
We went for family getaway for few days in June. Dodn't expect anything special and we were surprised positively. Pool area is really big and kids friendly. Food was excellent and you have so many choices. Definitely would go back there. Only recommendation for staff, they should change bracelet color.
