The staff was courteous. The location was good and the hotel pool was very nice. The hotel had a little train to ride into town, that was very nice!
The water by the 'beach' was rocky and muddy, not suitable for kids. The hotels that were closer to more attractions were Hotel Melia and Hotel Umag. Although the room says 'air conditioned' it was 24 c in the rooms, and it was very hot at night. Very uncomfortable.
