Club Plein Vent Adria Hotel 3 star

Amy Adejokun Section editor

The lively Adria hotel doesn't have much charm on the inside, but the outside makes up for this. With its natural environment and spacious swimming pools, you just have to stay outside to appreciate this hotel. Like the ageing guest rooms, there is nothing exceptional about the restaurant, but the Adria is the only hotel of its kind to offer inhalation and detoxification rooms! An original product, but definitely not on par with the other services.

    Location 7.0 /10

    The hotel is 800m from the centre of Biograd, or about a 15-minute walk. 62 miles north of the Split Airport and 15 miles from Zadar.

    Accommodation 6.50 /10

    The hotel has 200 guest rooms, both doubles or triples, with a rather basic, if not old-fashioned, decor. While the bedding is of a good quality, which is nevertheless extremely important, the carpet, sofa-bed and small television seem to be from another era... The bathroom matches the rest of the hotel with an open shower cubicle and mediocre quality shower gel. The small balcony (but at least there is one!) either overlooks the swimming pool or the car park and is furnished with plastic chairs that don't exactly add much charm.

    60 of the guest rooms were refurbished in 2012, thus creating a third room category: the superior rooms. In these rooms the decor is more simple and a tiny bit more stylish, and the quality is much better, with a beige sofa, a bathtub and semi-separate toilets.

    Overview 6.75 /10

    The Adria's 200 guest rooms are found in an imposing and charmless white building. Although the entrance hall and tiny café are nothing exceptional, the well-being centre is truly original. It contains a decent size indoor swimming pool, nothing new there, but also two halo therapy rooms and an inhalation room next to the sauna. The halo therapy rooms are entirely covered in salt (walls and ceiling), with sand on the floor where guests can make themselves comfortable on the deckchairs (children are welcome) and make the most of the detoxifying virtues of the salt. Expect to pay around £8.50 for half an hour. The inhalation room isn't particularly appealing, but has various inhalers placed on tables with a range of essential oils for guests to choose from. Outside, although the beach isn't quite on the hotel's door step, the two outdoor pools are large enough that guests can take a swim without elbowing one another. The view of the pine forest and the impressive covered sports and outdoor games area (a great way to make the most of the fresh air without the full glare of the sun) are some of the best features here. Basketball, volleyball, mini football, handball, tennis, petanque, beach volleyball and ping pong can all be played here, to the delight of both children and adults! The kids club has taken up residence in a tent on the lawn, and welcomes children aged 4 to 12 six days a week during the school holidays. However, meal times are not covered by the club, which doesn't leave parents much time to head off to do their own thing. The opening times are 10:00am to 12:00pm, and 3:00pm to 5:30pm.

    Food and drink 5.75 /10

    First of all, note that there is no real 'all inclusive' package like you usually find in the Dominican Republic, but rather a full-board hotel with a few free drinks at the bar. The restaurant has a large, though not particularly enchanting, dining room, which opens out onto the terrace. The main meals of the day are served here in buffet form in the midst of the lively, if noisy, atmosphere. Arrive early or late to get a table outside, by far the nicest. A small restaurant next to reception serves à la carte snacks and salads. The little terrace is pleasant but lacks a view...In terms of quality and choice, guests best not be too demanding. Everything is decent, but there is not much variety and the wine, as in many hotels in Croatia, requires a strong stomach!
    From 3:00pm to 5:00pm, guests can enjoy biscuits, ice cream and pizza.

    Beach 6.50 /10

    Soline public beach is only 400m from the hotel, and can be reached via a pleasant walk through the pine forest, although watch out for the mosquitoes, which are often out in force late in the day. Like all the beaches in Croatia, this one is comprised of pebbles, but the turquoise waters are irresistible.

    To know

    An interesting fact: 82 of the hotel's 200 rooms are reserved for French guests.
    Indeed, 3 members of the entertainment staff in high season are French themselves.
    There is no real 'all inclusive' package, just a bar with a choice of several free drinks and snacks between 3:00pm and 5:00pm.

      • Package deals in juillet 2014 Posted on 2014-09-03 En famille - Une semaine et plus (Chambre avec vue)

        Séjour inoubliable avec tout le charme de la Croatie. Personnel super accueillant, serviable et très respectable envers le client. Tout était superbe : chambre, propre et impeccable, serviettes changées à chaque fois qu'on le voulait, repas locaux d'une excellente qualité et très variés, rapport qualité/prix très bon. Seul bémol, l'animation française nulle. Par contre guide Damir et Lana, super ! Rien à redire, on y retournera, c'est sûr ! La chance a du être avec nous car tout était parfait !

      • Advantages

        Hôtel très propre, repas excellent, personnel très accueillant et serviable, piscine propre, loisirs intéressants. Excursions magnifiques avec guide Damir et Lana super sympas.

      • Disavantages

        Animation nulle pour adulte. Représentant français Plein Vent, Laurent, pas très disponible quand on a besoin de lui.
