We arrived on a Monday and were met at reception and shown to our room. The service was not impressive in fact a little rude but we shrugged it off. The room had no phone by the bed only one in the bathroom. A little inconvenient when you require wake up calls and to make outbound calls for bussiness. There was also no alarm facility. We had a tripple room which meant the sofa bed required making up. We asked reception to do this for us however at 10pm when we returned from dinner it was not done and of course was too late for cleaners and so a hotel receptionist did it for us - she seemed a little put out. The room size however was great and overlooked the harbour but did not have a bottle opener for the mini bar which seemed a little odd so we ended up having to buy one. So take one with you.
Food was okay (if what you liked was on the menu) vegetarian options are rare and i often found myself eating just plain spagetti. The waiter however was very friendly and great with the kids. Make sure you let them know if you will be dining at the hotel or out - they dont tell you this when you check in and we found ourselves with a long wait on our first night.
The placement of the hotel was fantastic. Right in the middle of Postira overlooking the beautiful harbour. A room with a sea view is not to be missed. Beaches are scarce but thats to be expected if your going to Brac. The hotel pool is also very small and very cold with little shade and chairs to sit on but worth a dip if your brave. All in all Brac is beautiful and worth a visit. Its a lovely quiet destination with few fluent english speakers and expect to walk and be adventurous as plenty of rock to clamber across with crabbing and fishing to be done with the kids.
When we left we got on the coach and realised that the hotel had taken our passports for the tourist board when we first checked in. Very irritating that they did not give them back. However we rang the hotel and the receptionist PERSONALLY drove and met us to return them at the ferry crossing. So having had very poor service to begin with they made up for it.
I would reccomend it to others as i feel we were just a little unlucky.
