We came the second time in this place, because the quiet, clean and wonderful conditions that offers. It's ideal for families with kids, they have lots to fulfill their
time. The staff are very kind and attentive with their customers, the Management also involves permanently smooth running of the service, I can say I had a great vacation here and will definitely return next year.

Room Tip: Rooms with see side offer a beautiful view and not in the sun

In my opinion, the hotel which is located the best in istria. After the renovation not really that suited for older people. Better suited for families with children. Pool area really nice but due to the music that is constantly playing really noisy. Although you just have to ask the waitress at the bar to lower the volume.

This is a good hotel to stay at. The hotel has been recently renevated. The buffet breakfast is good and the buffet dinner is also good, i would not recommend eating there alot as it might get a little boring after awhile.

Sol Sipar is newly redecorated and looks very good. It's well located on the beach with a short walk to the tourist train that brings you to Umag Center.

The staff is friendly and helpful but their english skills are not very good and some think it's a good idea to answer back in german although they were addressed in english. But that wasn't isolated to the hotel. Most of the people working in the tourist industry that I met started speaking german and weren't very capable english speakers.

As I said before the hotel is newly renovated and it looks good. But when you look more closely some of the work seems to have been hurried and could have been done better. I was traveling in a group of 20 in 11 rooms and when it rained, there was a leak in at least two of them. There was also a leak in the common area near the bar.

I was there in early september and the "off season" seems to have begun. Although advertized to be open until midnight, the pool bar closed around 18. The sign was later changed. My group enjoyed sitting outside as long as possible and it would have been more enjoyable if the bar had been opened. But we had good service from the bar staff. The doors leading to the pool area and outside seating area were locked too early so we had to walk around the hotel to get in. But that might have been because the security staff didn't notice the group sitting outside. On one occasion the security staff knew that we were outside and waited for us to come inside before locking the doors.

The buffet is generally good. At least you don't leave there hungry. I mostly enjoyed it. There is a good variety and something for most people. But if you stay for some time it might get boring and the quality is what to expect from a buffet. The week I stayed there the buffet was very busy both for breakfast and dinner but the food was plenty and enough for everyone.

The rooms are nice. There could be more water pressure in the shower. The sink has a design flaw with the running water all the way at the back so shorter people need too reach to wash their hands. The beds are good. The tv is quite small for a newly renovated hotel and it would have been good if it supported miracast or had an HDMI interface.

I generally enjoyed my stay and I think the rest of the group was quite happy.
