The hotel is just a few metres from an idyllic pine-shaded beach, and Makarska’s bustling lungomare and offers stylish accommodation, fresh and modern culinary hotspots, freshwater pools, an exclusive beach bar and a once in a lifetime climbing adventure across the Biokovo ice caves, including a spectacular Skywalk glass viewing platform. Double rooms from €101 per night based on two sharing including flexi half board (breakfast +choice of lunch or dinner, or €25 credit to use in bars and restaurants).
The second option is Hvar [PLACESHOTEL] which sits on the island’s northern shore, offering the high energy lifestyle of Hvar yet just a stone’s throw from the rustic charm of elegant Stari Grad.
