Makarska is a great base for a holiday in Croatia. Lovely coast and beaches, plenty of restaurants to choose from and reasonable prices, easy access to many areas of interest. The apartment was also a great place to stay. Fantastic views of the islands, sea and Makarska itself. Very clean, large lounge / diner / kitchen area, nice bathroom and 2 bedrooms plus a small balcony at the rear overlooking the mountains, though we only used that for as a drying area for clothes. Very well equipped and quiet. However, just note that it is on the 4th (top) floor of the building with no lift. Not a problem for us but something to bear in mind. However, the views are well worth the climb!
