Croatia - A Country of 1000 Islands – has fast become the jewel of Eastern Europe. Whilst it may have been late to arrive to the tourism party it has certainly made up for lost time. Croatia is a location scouts dream and plays host to the most spectacular scenery. Out west you’ll find the top billed Pula Area, with the only Roman amphitheatre in the world to have four walls intact. For a beach with a difference, set sail to the Island of Brac and sink your toes into the sandy Golden Horn, Zlatni Rat – the paradise spit that changes shape in the wind. Winter is definitely not coming in Dubrovnik, where the golden city walls and cobbled streets will have you reminiscing iconic scenes from Game of Thrones. And for even more glitz and glamour, skip over to the island of Hvar where super yachts line the harbour as the sun sets on the busy bar scene. If green is more your colour, strap on your hiking boots and head inland for out-of-this-world waterfalls cascading in Plitvice Lakes National Park. Your feet may get weary after a holiday to Croatia, but it will be nothing short of worth it.

A haven for sun-seekers, this island off the southern coast of Croatia is popular with beach fans and nature lovers alike. Its capital, Hvar Town, is a hub of restaurants and bars.
Who is it for?
The beaches close to Jelsa, Dubovica and Milna are ideal for a spot of sunbathing or watersports.
The small but perfectly formed Hvar Town is a cultural highlight during the day, with 13th Century walls and pretty churches. But by night it becomes a party town, with revellers flocking to its bars and restaurants.
From exotic marine life to lush forests and hidden coves, the island is crammed with natural delights.
Go island hopping down the Dalmatian Coast. Take a day trip to the Krka National Park. Touch the toe of the massive statue of Croatian hero Gregory of Nin for luck. If watersports on the beaches aren't enough to thrill you, then there are even places to go for extreme sports too.
This is a really great hotel overlooking Cavtat habour. Rooms well equipped and clean. Indoor and outdoor pools have plenty of sunbeds. Excellent buffet breakfast and you can sit out on the terrace weather permitting.

Fabulous hotel and holiday. Hotel is situated in fantastic location, short walk away from all the restaurants, main town etc. Room was spectacular, superior room sea view with balcony and worth paying that bit more.
hotel is in a great position next to beach but beach is stone and so is the edge of the water so shoes are a must , this its only downfall. staff are great. next to the main coast road but not a lot of noise. meals are buffet style but a great choice on offer . drinks are extra in the evening

Absolutely fantastic hotel in a beautiful setting. Spotlessly clean, friendly and very helpful staff, terrific restaurants. Tbh, I really can't fault it (maybe the toiletries could be better but that's me being INCREDIBLY picky!).
