Good view of the Adriatic Sea
Pool was close
Terrace View was descent
The male bartender was a real sweetheart
No wifi in rooms
Not very accessible to town
Front reception customer service was a joke
The showers were SUPER small; as big as the kitchen was; (like tiny house nation)
The location of the resort is good in that it is just off the motorway but it is impossible to go anywhere without going in a car as there are no nearby bars or restaurants, there is a large Lidl supermarket down the road but again the car was needed. Fortunately for us walking was not a problem. Local transportation was terrible; there was only 1 bus every hour. The citywide "siesta" is from 1:30pm (13:00) to 6:30pm (18:30).
We stayed here for less than a week because we were trying to find ways to leave, and were successful. We stayed on an Interval International Time-share. We were surprised this would be considered a RCI property. Even RCI's lowest star rated accommodations are better than this place. The quality and equipment in the apartment was far below usual time-share standards. Whilst we were there, there was no in room wifi except in the bar area and near the reception desk.. Kitchen facilities were very poor, only a standard 4 burner gas range which were temperamental in lighting. There was no microwave and no iron or ironing board.. When we arrived the first day, there was an infestation of ants. The pilot for the hot water was not lit thus the first night we had to take ICE COLD showers after traveling nearly 36 hours.
Most of the resort seemed to be closed,and a lot of work being done to get the resort open for the summer. Halfway during our stay, the resort became filled with a couple of hundred Italian teenagers, who had taken over the place with loud music being played late into the evenings, - fortunately we left before they did.
All in all I wouldn't recommend this resort unless it has an extreme makeover and people who care a little bit more about the people they are serving.
