We're just back from a three night stay at the hotel. It is gorgeous - we were in a sea view room (pic below!) which was very nicely furnished. The breakfast was very good with great variety. We liked the private beach for relaxing in the sun. The champagne bar was also fab!
I had an aromatherapy massage in the spa and really enjoyed it - super relaxing and the therapist was absolutely lovely.
The hotel has a shuttle service which takes you into split, which we took advantage of twice. This was much cheaper than getting a taxi. On our first night we ate dinner at Arkada, which is close to the hotel -definitely recommended!
Overall a lovely stay!!

Location, location... The hotel is situated just on the beach. We had beautiful view on Split and the Islands on the top of this marina with nice boots was located just in the front of our balcony. View restaurants are very close to the Hotel. Very nice wellness area, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and private beach - what do you need more for resting? Large breakfast with selection of local specialities. Rooms large, well equipped. Finally nice and professional staff.

The hotel facilities are great and the 10% discount on restaurants (food only) and spa for spg members is a plus. However, as it happens in this kind of huge hotels, the lack of personal touch and individual attention is a let down...
Special thanks to Maja at the reception for her help, very friendly and kind.

The hotel was beautiful and exactly what we were looking for! Much nicer and more amenities than the typical european style hotel. The pools and beach were well staffed and it easy to order food and drinks right to your chair.
As always the hotel restaurants were more expensive that if you were in the downtown part of Split or walked up/down the beach to one but the meals that we did have on property were good and we received 10% off for being SPG members. There is also a shuttle that would take you downtown Split for a very small fee saving you from needing to take a taxi or drive everywhere.

There are pro's & cons to this Starwoods group hotel . It justifies its 5 star rating in terms of interior style and amenities . The exterior is rather off putting - it's a bit 'concrete'.

It's around 25 minutes from Split and situated in the Podstrana area . It's a pebbley beach & sea pumps are a must . There are hotel guys on hand to organise your seating which is really nice & thoughtful .

The rooms are nice and we paid extra for a sea view room, being Starwood members .

The hotel is clean, tidy & smart & most of the staff are nice, friendly & helpful . The lady who runs the champagne bar doesn't fall into that category .

There are 3 pools & a spa area all mainly occupied by children, mine included . The facilities are very good.

The restaurant food is pretty good but rather pricey. The breakfast is 1 st class and the organisation of it for such a large hotel is outstanding. It's not crowded and a really nice experience! The food on offer is awesome too!

The main spoiler for me is the amount of people they let in from neighbouring hotels to use the facilities . This takes away from the calmness & tranquility we are used to finding at 5 star establishments . There are hundreds of sun beds everywhere - squashed together and it is perfectly clear most of those sun beds are filled with bodies on day passes . They need to cut the numbers drastically - and give those staying here the peace , calmness and 5 star quality we crave . It's a real shame to bring the hotel down in this way especially during peak times.

Other than that you can hop on a local bus to Split just outside the hotel or use the hotel bus which is 3 x the price!

Neighbouring Split is worth a few visits - a beautiful little town.

There is a small supermarket opposite the hotel and a few restaurants on the left of the marina .

All in all, I would not stay here again because of the numbers of people they are letting in but it's a perfectly nice & clean experience .
