+++ Newly equiped hotel, kids friendly, very polite personal, 5* rich buffet restaurant, very clean rooms and toilets, less than 100 meters from the beach - - - Soft pillows, no jacuzzi, pools for kids a bit colder

At the beginning of November, we participated in a trade union union. The hotel has everything you need. It's 20 minutes away and with Uver Taxia the price is fine. Large room with two extra beds because the hotel is family friendly. Three minutes from the sandy beach if you like the sea. The hotel has a Spa and indoor and outdoor swimming pool as well as a children's pool, breakfast is great, lunch and dinner also, cafe bar. Wireless and free internet is available throughout the complex. The reception team is divine and with them I communicate the most. Not to forget Mr Renato T. Thanks Diadora, it was great.

We stayed here for one night due to a flight cancellation after spending the week in Medjugorje. This hotel is very well run. Everything about it was good. Would definitely stay again and recommend it. Thank you

Had an awesome weekend at this hotel. Wonderful hotel, friendly staff, good food, nice scenery.. the hotel itself seems rather new or at least very well maintained. Food is surprisingly good for something mass prepared, with an occasional positive and negative surprise - choose carefully.. kids absolutely loved it (aged 6 and 9)! Lovely playgrounds for kids as well as pools.. a real family friendly hotel. If you’re looking for a quiet couple’s weekend, choose the hotel next door, if you’re staying with kids this is the go-to hotel in the Zadar area! 5+ stars from my kids :)

I spent one night in this hotel earlier this week due to a cancelled flight and have nothing, but good things to say. The airline sent our entire plane here and despite the fact that they had to deal with a large amount of cranky, frustrated people that they probably weren't expecting, the staff were incredible! They helped everyone in a calm, polite manner and let us stay there the following day (even after we checked out) to enjoy their pool and bar as our flight didn't leave until the evening. They were helpful and friendly and really made a nightmare situation a lot more enjoyable. If you're looking for a welcoming, friendly place to stay then this is definitely a great choice!

Indeed - the name is perfectly true - this if family hotel! I would not recommend it to a couples with no kids as they do all they can to be for children. All the facilities in the hotel and in the rooms are designed for the little guests. The hotel is located in a little distance from civilisation (closest Petrčane is at least 30-45 minutes walk by the sea - anyway recommended!), on a peninsula owned by Falkensteiner and accommodating also some other hotels and apartments, but it is not an issue when you come there with kids, as you can find in the hotel everything you need for an attractive stay. It is also a good starting point to visit Zadar, Nin and some other nice places nearby. Also - quite close to the Zadar airport, if someone travels by plane. The food (FB) is also great - high quality meals with drinks included (which is not always the case). Very nice pools (both external and internal) and playground, kids club etc. All that allows fun for the kids on vacation. Highly recommended, and I think I would visit another Falkensteiner hotel again, if not this one.

Traveled as a family of 4, 2 boys age 8 & 10. The hotel is 30 mins transfer from the zadar airport.. the airport was fab, small so our bags came as soon as we got to the terminal ( taxi cost €35 each way) Diodora is focused on the family market, it is set ion a peninsula in a complex with the iadera hotel and apartments, each residence has its own pool zone with an entry gate which make it difficult to use the sister hotel facilities. However there is a "promenade" to allow access to the beach and sea all the way around the edge of the complex. Diodora has a man made sand beach with inflatables in the bay, which were great to swim out to. My children loved the sea trampoline and inflatable slide . The beach life guard hands out life jackets free of charge so even less confident swimmers can make it to the inlatables. Lots of water sports form the beach club, which are payable locally; paragliding, banana boat, jet skis, paddle boards and peddlos all available. Further round the ticks coast the hotel has secluded platforms for sunbathing with ladders to safely access the sea. Outside iadera there is a pebble beach. Lots of loungers on the beach and by the pool so you could always get one without needing to reserve early with a towel. ( need to get there early for a hammock though) Pool scene good, the water slide was very sedate ( boys said slow!) so would suit little children, the heated pool has a indoor and outdoor section which was great for my smaller child who gets shivery in cold water, there is also a bigger unheard pool with a mini lazy river. Falky room was just big enough for us... the 10 year old said the bed was too small (quite narrow single bed) and the kids bedding was aimed at little children. Bathroom was lovely . The buffet restaurant was very well run and had a high quality array of food ...always a different fish and meat every night ...steak, salmon, langoustines, mussels, prawns, duck, monkfish, John Dory all made an appearance as well as different risotto, pasta pizza and salads every day. Breakfasts were immense.i esp willy enjoyed the squeeze your own ornage juice and fresh figs. The inclusive wine with dibpnner was average but the option to order something more special and pay is available.

We were a group of 4 adults and a 10 month old baby. We arrived to the hotel at around 18:00h. We were tired from the trip and just hoped to get to our rooms as soon as possible. When we arrived, the check in was super fast and simple. It was absolutely motivating, since it was very straight forward. We got our keys, and lobby team helped with our luggage to the rooms. We went to the restaurant for our dinner and were positively surprised by the variety and quality of food. I think all of us gained weight as we ate all the delicious food. During our 4 day stay, we felt a great amount of care especially towards my baby, wife and myself. Everyone knew us. We felt extremely happy since there were many other guests with children, but somehow we felt special. I think the resort staff is well trained to handle travellers with children.

First of all - this hotel is ONLY for those who speak German or Croatian. Very little part of kids animation is done in English. So I could see older kids lost in competitions simply because they did not understand what they had to do and become sad because they lost to younger kids with understanding German. When my daughter asked to explain rules in English there was no answer. However most staff on reception speak English well. And they are really helpful when it needed. Food: The selection for breakfast was not for 4* hotel. But the lady that made eggs and omelette was so nice so we could not refuse eggs any day :) The lunch and dinner had selection of 5-6 items in main course menu and salads and cheese. Would not so bad, if was not so salty. My kid does not like salty food so it was really hard to find something that she could take. In between the main meals you have to pay for everything even for water, Rooms: We booked family room with a separate place to sleep for kids. Guess who slept there? I did. Because if both sliding doors are closed the room looks like a prison. Really scary. The rest is fine. Cleaners made a good job so we did not have any problem with room, towels or something else. Well done! The problem with room was in absence of noise insulation. Once your neighbors wake up, you'd wake up too. Facilities: 2 pools - one indoor with warm water. Was really helpful in rainy day. Slide made my daughter's stay more enjoyable. Sand beach is always full, but there was a lot of other places with less people but child should swim really well to enjoy them. The rest kid's facilities are for babies. 9-12 yaers children played on 4 desktops in playzone or watched how other played. Overall: Not bad, but very overpriced. If guests has a car, they need to pay for parking 10€ a day. I was charged for 10 days parking while had a car only for 3 days. Every call to service desk is not free. For such money half of services should be for free and minibar should be full of free drinks and snacks. Like in Spain :) PS: Be careful when booking this hotel on Kids are not included into booking price. You could be surprised to pay extra on exit ;) Finally: Country is very beautiful!!!

We (a family with a 6 year old) have stayed at this hotel at the end of August and it really is a very good hotel for families especially with smaller children. Pluses: - all the amenities for children ( kids pool, kids restaurant, a very big and diverse playground) - the beach that has sand and something I never found elsewhere: shadow from trees to hide when the sun is burning. and you don't have to reserve sun beds because there are plenty - best food I have ever tasted and we have been in a couple of resorts in Turkey and Greece - the rooms are big and nice - the staff was very friendly (reception, cleaning staff, restaurant staff) - very close to Zadar which is a lovely city worth visiting Minus: - the beach is small for so many guests. I noticed it is a small golf but they should extend it - extremely noisy. The noisiest hotel I have stayed at. From 8 am when the cleaning staff begins banging the hovers against the walls and talking loud, then the kids wake up and start running and screaming down the halls and it only stops at 10-11 pm. There must be something done to better soundproof the rooms from the hallway. - lots of thing to do for children till 6-8 years of age but above that not so much We enjoyed our stay here and we do recommend it but for families with children maybe up to 8 years and if you can stand the noise.
