The room seems ok but the cleanliness was sub standard. I found hairs on my bad as well as on the bathroom counter. Food at the restaurant was ok but the service was somewhat lacking. Waiters where constantly gathering in one spot and gossiping in Croatian (totally unprofessional). While having a beer at the bar I've received some peanuts when the drink was done :( that would be ok if the bar was packed but there where 5 guests!

We stayed for a night at Hotel Pinija. Our room is quite big, and we had the view of the swimming pool and the sea from the balcony. Wifi is provided. There is no kettle nor coffee or tea in the room.

Buffet dinner was provided as part of our tour package. There were other tour groups as well and so the restaurant was very packed. We have to share a table with other members in the group. For dinner, there was baked salmon, carbonara, roast pork and many others. As it was Oktoberfest, some guests were dancing to the live music. For breakfast there was sunny side eggs, bacon, different types of ham, cereal and dried fruits.

As in our previous hotel stay, we did not have time to enjoy the facilities as we were part of the group tour and had to check out after breakfast.

Stayed: October 2017, travelled with family

The hotel was good, the room was very comfortable and with sea views, but well, it was all organized for the excursions of elederly people.
They were all over the hall, with live music, dancing, drinking, smoking...
We had bad weather, so we decided to go to the SPA for a massage, and it was really great, in fact, the best part of our day!!!

Room Tip: Las familiares o más alejadas de las zonas comunes, mejor. Las excursiones son muy muy ruidosas,

With a narrow road from the main route, the hotel is hidden in trees as you arrive. It is on the shoreline, with a direct walkway onto the beach, which is more small rocks than sand or light shingle. The hotel is very large, and appears to cater for mainly national tour operators or travel companies. Unfortunately, everything about the hotel is geared to economics and throughput. Don’t expect any feel-good customer service or tea and sympathy from staff: their job appeared to be get the job done, and guests tolerated.
The lobby has an appearance more like a health centre, with the addition of a bar. A relatively modern look to the place adds a clinical feel, rather than providing warmth or the wish to linger. Seeing departing guests with their suitcases made me think of a small regional airport trying to impress rather than a pleasant area to relax.
The room followed the lobby’s decor, with clean lines and easy-to-manage furnishings. The walls were badly marked with scuffs, scrapes and scratches, the main cupboards had off-white melamine finishes, side tables and desk were light mock-wood melamine, and the floor a grey oak effect tile finish. A wall-mounted TV, a boxed a/c unit, room safe and fridge were also provided. In our room, there were twin beds, rather than a double, under a faux-leather headboard, which in turn was under a mural of the Midnight Sun installation.
The bathroom was ‘compact’, accessed through a glass-panelled sliding door. There was a shower over the middle of the rather short bath, so showering meant directing the spray to one end, otherwise you would flood the floor. A hinged glass screen separated the shower ‘area’ from the washbasin, but there was no bottom seal, so the water puddled the floor (better than flooding it, though!).
All the linen was of more than indifferent quality, both from new and through usage. Everything rang of cost-cutting. The duvet was thin and uninviting, the cover a cheap flannelette, the towels thin and hard with use, having lost much of the nap.
The bathroom toiletries were, like other aspects, functional, offering shampoo/body wash and body lotion tubes, and two soap cakes. Because of the hard water, it was a struggle to make the soap lather, although the body wash worked reasonably well.
The bed was like that in many European hotels, firm but acceptable. The thin duvet was ok for our trip, but if the temperature had fallen much lower, it may have been insufficient.
The rooms were reasonably well sound-proofed, with only limited noise transmitted. There was a net for privacy under the main curtains, and these covered the full width windows quite well, if you take care to place them at the edges and centre.
Cleanliness was not a strong point! Our bath had tide rings round it and hairs in it when we arrived, there were splodges of dirt on the bedroom floor, and water marks on nearly all the bathroom surfaces. Admittedly, the hard water must make the latter a real problem, but a dry cloth after rinsing should address this.
Buffet breakfast offered quite a wide choice, but again cost control was evident, with squash instead of juice. The layout of items was confusing, with breads hidden away on a wall and butter nowhere near, no bread near a toaster. Urns of coffee were provided, but these seemed to be topped up with water through the morning, so started very strong, and grew progressively weaker. The usual European continental meats and cheeses were available.
Buffet dinner was much the same as breakfast. You could find something you could eat, but perhaps not something you WANT to eat. The industrial scale meant the food was really canteen-grade, and it was primarily the company that made the mealtimes. The waiting staff were zealous, even clearing away plates that were still being used.
The hotel had a large indoor pool, as well as an outdoor one, with a good size terrace area. Both were clean and inviting. Spa treatments were available, and these were said to be reasonably priced.
The hotel was part of a tour itinerary and thus not of our individual choosing. Given the option, I would not come back here, and would seriously think about any tour where it was an hotel en route.
