Ulica hrvatskih žrtava 296,Seget Donji, Donji Seget, Split-Dalmatia, Croatia
"My husband and I spent two nights here on a recent Croatia trip. I had mixed feelings about staying here after reading some TA reviews but all my doubts vanished as soon as we walked into the stylish reception area and met a lovely Belgian lady and her dog. While this is an adult-only place, pets are very much welcome – a place after our own hearts!!! Mara at reception could not have been lovelier and more helpful (viele liebe Gruesse aus Wien!) We got a standard room on the top floor (402) which was modern and spacious with some quirky touches. Frankly, we did not need the freestanding bath-tub and would have preferred a slightly bigger balcony instead – maybe we should have booked the superior room. However, I absolutely loved the upholstered balcony seat right on the ledge with its amazing views… I could have set there all night and gazed out over the lights of Trogir! The room could do with a little bit more decoration (some wall art maybe), as well as some more amenities like a kettle (in fairness, it did have everything else – safe, iron, fridge, hair dryer, make-up mirror, good a/c). The pool area was absolutely beautiful. We loved the infinity feel of the pool (which is lit up in different colours at night) and were pleased to find plenty of sun loungers, even in July, even after 10.30 am. Breakfast is served until 11 am (another plus point!) although the selection was not great if you are not on a health mission. Still, absolutely fine for a couple of days and you have the choice of ordering various types of eggs. The water taxi to Trogir is in walking distance (to be honest, you can even walk to Trogir but some of it is along the main road which is maybe not the most pleasant walk) as are several beach restaurants in Seget Donji. We were particularly impressed on our last day when our flight was not until 11pm yet staff allowed us to continue using all of the hotel’s facilities. Unfortunately, it was high season so the hotel was fully booked and we couldn’t keep our room but we used various lounge areas earlier in the day (would have loved to sit by the pool but it was raining) and after returning from Trogir, were able to take advantage of the spa area’s facilities (which were lovely – showers with bathrobes and toiletries, hairdryers, plenty of space and privacy to get changed). All in all, we would love to return to the Ola some time and use it as a base for exploring more of beautiful Dalmatia and its hinterland."
"Ours was a 5 night stay in August. We found our arrival and check in went smoothly, the receptionists are lovely, especially Therese and the other blonde lady ( sorry forget the name ). Both very welcoming, helpful and social. We were early arrivals and only had to wait an hour for our room to be ready, ahead of the normal pm slot. We stayed in room 405, which as all rooms, had a good sea view and views over nearby Trogir. A smaller balcony than expected,but actually we didn't really use it so didn't matter. We didn't use the bath either, but thought it would've been nice had it a window looking out over the views. Whilst the hotel is new, and we would definitely stay there again, we noted some small snagging problems and felt these issues were perhaps money related. That perhaps the hotel had opened before it was really ready. We would suggest the following to improve things 1.New carpet needed on stair well - lots of staining on current. 2.Roof top Bar - needs attention. Not at all welcoming. Poor display, & small stock of drinks. Coffee maker needed (bar maid had to go to ground floor to get us some). 3.Pool area. Tiles missing from the pool floor. Colourful Plant life would make it more attractive. Sun bed mattresses were dirty. cleaning/replacement needed. 4.Tiling on patio and balcony have no grouting. Not sure if this is cut back or fashion? 5.Tea/Coffee facilities in the room. A must. 6.The outside steps down to the road are flooded by the water sprinkler at night, which we felt a health hazzard. Despite the list above, we did enjoy our stay. We had visited Dubrovnik a few years ago, but actually enjoyed Seget Donji, Trogir more! We took the water taxi into Trogir in the evenings. Rented a scooter and went to Klis Fortress and had lunch in Arbanija, Ciovo at Palandara and a swim. We also had a lovely day on the beach in Uvala Jelinak veli. Our favourite sunbathing spot was on the beach front by Zule Restaurant where the Pizzas are great!"
"My wife took me here at the beginning of October 2109 as a birthday present having bought a relatively inexpensive trip via Travelzoo which we were a little bit worried about (i.e. was it going to be ‘cheap and cheerful’ - and a bit disappointing thing?). When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel itself is located not far from Trogir (2km) and 32km from the centre of Split (the airport is closer though). Taxis via Uber are not expensive, although we decided to rent a car which was definitely the best idea so we had the freedom to go where ever we wanted whenever we wanted. The roads seemed pretty safe although if you’re coming from England, it’s a left-hand drive country so driving on the opposite side of the road can be a challenge for some - generally it’s easy as long as you keep your wits about you. We spent some time getting advice from a lovely lady on reception called Maja, who really was so very lovely and helpful in every way, all the places he told us about were well worth the trips. The staff there couldn’t do enough for us and I would thoroughly recommend to anyone to stay at this lovely hotel but would also recommend a hire car to get the best from your stay - if you like exploring. There was no additional cost for parking your car in their ‘under the hotel’ car park which wasn’t a problem there at all. Great place!"
