Falkensteiner Club Funimation Borik4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Nice staff, nice room, nice hotel. The food is OK for an all-inclusive hotel (they try to make effort with fresh food). We had a pleasant journey and our son had stars in his eyes (even if he didn't understand a word as he doesn't speak German or Croatian)
No value for money at all. Bad food. Cheap everything. Food terrible. Drinks fake and undrinkeablle. Bad airco. Old and need renovation. Location ok close to Zadar. Terrible buffet and breakfast. Never coming back.
My wife and two children spent 2 fabulous weeks here in July 2017. All of the staff we met over the period of our vacation were courteous and very attentive. Our hotel room was very well appointed. The children had their own room with bunk beds, there was a separate lounge area and my wife and I had our own room with a large (very comfortable) four poster bed. The restaurant facilities was amazing. The standard of food served here was excellent.(I was a bit nervous with all inclusive food, however the standard & quality of the food was excellent!) Whether you love seafood, meat, or vegetarian, there was something for everyone. The food was also very fresh and as soon as something ran out, the staff would be on hand to replenish it. The Club Funimation (kids club))team were out of this world. Our children absolutely loved the entertainment they provided. They also interacted with the adults and I participated in numerous activities throughout the day. What struck me was how talented they all were. They could sing, dance, juggle, sand art, fire juggling, clowns, the list was endless. The funimation team really put the children first and they always had a smile on their faces. Over the two weeks we were here they provided plenty of variety to keep everyone of all ages thoroughly entertained. There were 3 large outdoor pools with a water slide and a very warm indoor pool with Jacuzzi which were very clean and well maintained. The wellness spa & massage facilities was a welcome addition and my wife & I used the facilities there on several occasion. If you have children this is the perfect family destination. I don't normally go back to the same place & hotel after I have visited, however I will definitely be coming here again next year.
Love the location, great animation for the whole family, specially for our children. Basically the children are busy from 10h until 20h, lunch and dinner with their mascotte Falky, so we could go eat without haste. Big thanks to the guest relation manager and the friendly personal who took care about our little problem. The climate is warm. The sea is clean and warm about 25 degree. Nice Spa and Wellness place for adults. Zadar centre old city is a great place to look and having fun.
The location of the hotel is great. The sandy beach is perfect for those of us, who don't like rocks or pebbles (sand is also in the sea not just on the beach and it is very shallow so perfect for kids or people who don't like swimming in the deep parts of the ocean). Water is crystal clear. The hotel pool is nice for cooling off, but too crowded for having a good swim. If you want to have a good spot, you have to come early because some guests reserve their loungers at sunrise....Some umbrellas are too light, they kept falling at a slight breeze and that is a little dangerous, especially if it falls on a child. It is a family hotel, kids have a lot of different programs and animation through the day, so for couples without children it gets a little boring. I missed more music at the pool, a third of the day there was complete silence... The food was good, a lot of options for vegetarians, a little less for vegans. I wish it was labelled better, there was ham in the cabbage&pasta, which was only seen, when you already put it on your plate. The bad thing about our stay was the room. We payed a lot, because we were travelling with our agency (if we visit again, we will definitely cut the agency out), and the room was so disapointing. It had no balcony and the two small windows were facing the dining area so we had to keep the curtains on the whole time. It felt awful, and we had trouble drying our towels and swimsuits. Also the hotel is very non-friendly to smokers, my partner had a lot of trouble finding a place, where smoking is allowed, even on the hotel terace there wasn't any ash trays... Night life is very boring and you don't have any place to go. There is a bar nearby (The Famous beach bar & grill), which has a good selection of beer and cocktails and very good food, but that is it.
The hotel lies next to the sea where you can do different kind of watersports. There were enough beds and towels in the garden. The room was nice and the staff friedly. A pity that the food was not so tasty and maybe not so fresh. My son and my wife have been ill (on different days). Was it the food or the hygiene in the swimming pool ?
With every time very pleasant hotel manager we like to return to Borik even for just a lunch or swimming.Here, we always feel like 'Welcome home'. We get what we expect, all the time. Other Falkensteiner staff should learn from Mr.Ivan. I even skipped to write 10 reviews of other hotels I had visited before Borik....;)
Everything was perfect! The room was always clean, the food was delicious, the animation team was profi, the pool area was big. We would like to come again. I recommend this hotel for families with children.
We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Room was big enough and clear, room service was perfect. Dishes were delicious! Swimming pool area is big and comfortable. I can offer this hotel to every family with smal children.
When we came we got an upgrade to the presidential suite and that was really terrific. We even had our own outdoor pool! The pools at the hotel were great and much animation for young and old. A nice beach with a lovely club and several activities like step boats, water jetsski and other things. The staff was friendly and the animators, especially Nenad was great to have around. He was very kind and helpful. We also had a great time at the bar, we had a lot of laughs with the staff.
