Excellent hotel with very nice location, surroundings, nice staff and atmosphere. Rooms are clean and stylish with a lot of sunshine. But……during November we did not like breakfast – every morning we found broken milk, ham, …. So we ate only bread with packed jam and butter. I hope this is not happening all the year! Dear GM of Falkensteiner resort Punta Skala- please change it. read hotel review

Lovely spa hotel. Fairly isolated but ultra modern charm. Being used for international conferences & although participants have own facilities most of time, they do put a strain on breakfast seating/ service. In last ten days there have been 2 conferences & filming of a car commercial Conference attendees have entertainment post dinner, monopolise bar, create a lot of noise & a few were even smoking indoors in the bar & no attempt to police this. Only a few interested in karaoke so talk louder then music got louder etc, etc. They also came out onto the terrace for fag ... breaks & spoke so loudly could be heard through closed door & with TV on up to 1 am ( or after several complaints) Appreciate in current environment that conferences are a great source of revenue for hotels but organisers must take responsibility for making environment comfortable for other guests. A note in the the lift advising that proceedings may go on late, it may be a bit noisy & thanking us for our understanding is not a solution. read hotel review
  • Gastronomy
    4.0

    Other restaurants on site but at full price not supplement Some off the wall combinations smallish portions but quite a lot of choice with buffet items. Fairly mixed cuisine with fish, meat & salad items. Generally clear tales / plates quickly. Layout of restaurant not easiest to allow for conversation with others All evening drinks chargeable at high prices & quite measured portions ( see also above re bar)

  • Service
    4.0

    Mix of buffet & waiter service. Breakfast has lots of choice including fresh cooked hot items. Coffee & OJ generally served but can take time or not always be offered. At dinner can wait a while to be served the hot starters / mains & not always up front with things like Parmesan on pasta. Majority of staff are very friendly & helpful & speak very good English. Rooms cleaned regularly although timing varies but no issues. Plenty of clean towels provided. Have had issues with one of bar staff with charging not matching what is listed but mainly resolved. The guy is a complete prat trying to either overcharge or restrict amount of mixer provided. We order two spirits & one mixer but either keeps half of bottle or last night, tried to put it all in one drink thus maker the other a bit strong. The Residence Manager Tine is an absolute gem, patiently listens to our issues & has solved most of them. He should get an award such a kind & helpful person

    Lovely layout, 3 pools + beachfront. No shops close by & one in hotel never open. Not very busy with holidaymakers. Several excursions if you speak to the right person. Small village within 40 minutes walk

  • Room
    5.0

    Layout a little odd - open plan bathing area & toilet in what looks like a cupboard. Spacious, good view, balcony OK but no sun at ant time Plenty of state age space. Could do with a couple of better English speaking channels on TV

  • Sport & Leisure
    4.0

    No entertainment as such apart from background music except when conferences are on (see above) Three lovely pools although one a bit cool. Beach good and quite easy to get in water ( with deck shoes) Free WiFi bit patchy at times but usually works Spa treatment booked tomorrow plenty on offer with a good discount for our tour provider

A lovely hotel with wonderful staff in a beautiful location. This creates an atmosphere for a truly relaxing break. We did not use the spa or swimming facilities our choice. We did hire a car and explore the National Parks, zadar and some of the islands which would have been difficult without a car. We would have liked to make car hire arrangements beforehand. read hotel review
