We went for a short family weekend away and have selected apartments that are advertised as refurbished several years ago. Although they did replace parts of interior, overall is still very disappointing. Forget about walking barefoot inside, as cleaning is far from perfect. I would not recommend these for an advertised price. The good point of this establishment is that... More

I've been here with 3 friends for diving. We stay only 1 night, and it's a nice place. The room was clean and comfortable, with a reasonable price.

The apartment is very charming and comfortable / great to relax. The welcome bottle of local wine was only the start to a great and amazing stay! The location is perfect, not far from the center of Umag - and the Resort has everything you need to make your stay perfect!

This hotel looks like its buildings are face-lifted leftovers from communist days. The tiny room has the charm of a 1970's hospital, complete with bright white flourescent lighting, which has to remain on all day as the windows are so narrow that the room would otherwise be dark. The tap in the shower got so hot that you can sustain... More
