    Personally I really like this hotel and we had already been the third or fourth time. We are very satisfied, take into account that we partner and I are professionals in tourism.

    Roman baths were not working during our stay, which was not mentioned in any Booked.net or over the phone even though I called the hotel three times in order to authorize the card. We were told only on arrival at the reception. This is a big failure if you consider that we came for a weekend of wellness. :-(

    Superb

    The Hotel was out of town but it was easy to use the local bus service to get in and out of town. The Hotel was wonderful with great facilities ie spa, swimming pool and beach if you preferred to swim in the sea. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room we had was spacious and clean.Other restaurants were nearby if you felt like a change. I would recommend the nearby Pizza restaurant which is only a 5 minute walk away from the Le Meridien.

    The breakfasts are excellent. The Spa is a very good feature. The rooms are large. The staff are friendly and efficient. The hotel is right on the stony beach, there are plenty of sun beds and there are some nice local restraunts.

    It's a very large, top quality, but mainly tour operator and business orientated conference hotel. There are no drawers for clothes in the bedroom. There are no in room tea/coffee facilities, and no trouser press. The main restraunt lacks any sort of atmosphere and is expensive.

    The hotel is situated away from the Split crowds. Has a free bus to the city and pick up on the half hour...thought this was very convenient. Hotel has excellent breakfast buffet, free internet and champagne terrace for sunset over the city.

    Very nice hotel/resort on the ocean. Wonderful restaurants, staff, and amenities. Very family friendly throughout - hard to leave the hotel/resort!

    The only think I did like was the very friendly woman working in the lobby as a "marketing manager" for activities etc, she was super nice!!

    Outdated, overpriced are the 2 words that best describe this place! I was soo disappointed that I will never come back to this place and in the future I will try and avoid Le Meridien hotels! Usually you would think Le Meridien would be as good as their partner hotels Westin and Sheraton but that is not true.. This hotel is no more than 3star or max 4 stars. I would have been fine here for a price of max 150e a night but to pay around 300euros per night for a room no bigger than maybe 15sq metres is just awful. We saw 2 room types as we had paid for deluxe as they mistakenly first put us in a standard, we had to complain a lot to get the correct room type that we had paid for! To be honest there wasn’t much difference between standard and deluxe, both were pretty awful and the bathrooms were disgusting especially the toilet. The staff in general is very rude, everything cost extra in this place as well. No complimentary stuff in the deluxe 300euro room, not even a free bottle of water and they call themselves 5 star?? In the bathroom you get 1 shampoo bottle and one soap for 2 persons /day, no bath salt and nothing extra.. The hotel also looks awful from both the inside and outside, it´s like a labyrinth built in the 1960s. No good access to the parking etc., to get to your car you need to walk with your bags through the pool area. Btw the pool area is also horrible, one pool for like 1000people, it´s so full with small children that I felt sick even before thinking of swimming in that water. The beach was also awful, your feet get caught between rocks when coming out of the water, the beach is so packed with people that you cant even see the pebble stones.. I have so much to complain that the text wouldn’t even fit in here, I truly disliked this place!

    A beautiful hotel with lovely view of Split. Well-situated with every amenity, and nice selection of restaurants.

    Very good

    The Spa at the hotel, the breakfast and easy access to yacht rental are definitely pluses. Hotel staff is very attentive and helpful

    There were two things which I did not like about this hotel. First of all, it is huge... It's really a matter of taste, but a prefer hotels that do not feel this grand. We stayed for 4 nights and did not explore all of this hotel, feels like it's a mass tourism place. Another minus, I did not like the beach. Really. After rocky beaches in all other places in Croatia, the sand beach at this hotel just did not feel right. Water gets muddy with some grass, etc. and it's just not as good as other beaches in Croatia. We did not enjoy the beach at all

    Good

    There is unfriendly and absolutely unprofessional staff in the restorant and bars. Dirty beach with years old garbage on it. There is no professional animation program, no evening concerts (except piano or gitar in a bar).

  • 6.2
    Good

    Good breakfast, free shuttle to Split (but only with 8 places per hour), rent-a-car facility in the hotel

    Poor room for a 5 star hotel, terrible "sea view" (it was an interior courtyard with only a tiny bit of sea in the background), location (very far from city center and nothing around)

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    Rooms were very nice, staff generally attempted to be helpful, guests very international

    It was a bit of a concrete jungle. Disappointing no effort made to break up large areas glass/concrete outside the hotel

    Facilities are ok. The marina, beach and pool area works fine

    This is not a 5 star hotel. Rooms are too small. Personnel are struggling with understanding english. Service is generally poor. Quality and varity of food is poor. Services and facilities for childern are very scarce
