An awesome hotel; an amazing staff

We stayed three nights at The Maritimo and had a great time. The staff was extremely gracious. After an adventure, we returned very late to the hotel and the night manager, Neno, made sure we had something to eat and brought out trays of meat and cheese and bread....

Fab hotel . Amazing views

We chose this hotel after reading other travellers reviews, we were not disappointed. The rooms were very clean, our rooms were sea facing, great to open your curtains to in a morning. We had breakfast daily, plenty of choice for all Service excellent. Would stay here again

Freundlich, sauber, ruhig

Schon bei der Einfahrt in die Garage ist der mit Namen reservierte Parkplatz die erste positive Überraschung. Sehr freundlicher Empfang an der Reception, das Zimmer mit Meersicht im 2. Stock ist sauber und komfortabel. Ausgezeichnetes Restaurant mit souveränem witzigem Kellner. Strandpromenade bis zum Hafen (ca. 10 Min).

Top-Hotel in Strandlage

Mittelgroßes, modernes Hotel. Blitzsauber. Schöne Zimmer mit Balkon bzw. sehr großer Terrasse. Sehr freundliches Personal. Tiefgarage um 7€ pro Tag. Sehr gutes à la carte Restaurant (Hausgäste erhalten 10% Rabatt auf Speisen). Das Beste ist die direkte Lage am Strand. Ins Zentrum von MAKARSKA gelangt man in 15 Min über eine schöne Strandpromenade mit zahlreichen Lokalen. Das Haus verdient sicher 4 Sterne.

Best customer service at Croatia

Really helpful and lovely staff specially at the front desk. Our room was at the third floor and was really quietly even that the balcony was on the street. Breakfast was good and you get it fried or scrambled eggs when you asked. Location was also good, not far from the bus station and only few steps from the beach. If coming back to Makarska,definitely book this hotel again!

Lovley small hotel with excellent restaurant

This was our 3rd visit and already planning to return next year. Excellent hotel, staff so helpful and friendly you immediately feel at home. Rooms are a good size and spotlessly clean. Food in restaurant excellent and good choice of menu. Situated opposite beach so you can dine looking out over the sea. Nearest bus stop about 5 minute walk.

Probably best in Makarska!

Vi er et norsk par som har bodd her tre ganger. Like fornøyde hver gang! 😊 Our best recommendation! Very service minded staff. Excellent cleaning. Good breakfast and restaurant. Book a room with sea view, you satisfaction is guaranteed!

Smallish, modern hotel on the water

We made this booking only a hour or two before arriving and yet they had our name on our parking place by the time we checked in! The front desk persons were very attentive, helpful and personable. We ate breakfast overlooking the water. Very trim and pleasant surroundings. The waiter took our order for eggs. Our room was large - a suite with a kitchenette. We enjoyed opening the skylight in the bedroom for fresh air. Wifi in the room was so good. This hotel is convenient to the beach, and about 15 minute walk to old town.

Pearl of Croatia

They have nice, modern rooms, good food, reasonable prices etc. but at the top of the list are the staff. They are friendly, prompt and service-minded. The hotel is situated on the beach promenade in a nicer area. We had a fantastic four days there, including a boat trip to the nearby islands. Try the Maritimo and you will see why they win all those hotel awards.

A very relaxing and friendly hotel

After receiving a friendly greeting and smooth check in we opened our door to a lovely tastefully decorated room. The staff cannot do enough for you and will help with any queries.We were bed and breakfast and ate in the hotel a couple of times and the food was lovely.It is a lovely stroll to the harbour area. We recommend you visit Split and Omis. This hotel is a little gem!

Best hotel we have been yet

We have been at Hotel Maritimo in Makarska in september 2015 for 12 nights. It is a small hotel, very clean, amazing staff and top location! Breakfastbuffet, private parking and next to the beach. We love to come back next year. Thanks to Ana and her staff. My husband had his birthday during our time at the hotel and we got a nice surprise arranged by the hotel and our son.

First class hotel

We planned to stay here 5 days but it was that nice we extended our vacations in Makarska 🙂 The hotel, the service, people working there everything really perfect. Also the location is really good. If You are looking for top quality hotel this is good choice!! For sure we will come back.

Pioter -

Must be the best hotel in Makarska

After finding this hotel last year we decided to go again. Yes it was that good!! Svetlana and her colleagues met us like long lost family and made sure everything was perfect for our stay. We had a similar room to the one we had before and Svetlana remembered our request last time for sun umbrellas and comfy chairs on the balcony, heaven! The staff here are wonderful and cant do enough for you, always a warm greeting when we passed through reception. As i said in my review last year, this hotel really punches above its weight in all aspects.

Had a great week with my hubby at this hotel at the end of August First time in Croatia but wont be the last. Hotel was fab with lovely, friendly and helpful staff. Room was clean and spacious with a sea view and right by beach. A really good position for everything n the area including the fun train that runs outside the hotel and along the prom. Food at the hotel was lovely, varied and reasonably priced. The breakfast that went with our room was lovely too. The sea is so clear and just in front of the hotel and the mountains to the back of the hotel are awesome. Bus stop to Split, Omis, Brela, which we visited is just a 5 min walk up hill from the hotel. Highly recommend.

Maritimo Makarska

A fantastic hotel with service minded and extremely friendly staff. The location is great really close to the beach. We have nothing to complain about. If you are looking for a calm and memorable holiday We advice you to book and be happy!

Phenomenal service and excellent hotel

One night stay for a little beach time after a few days in Dubrovnik, while the area around the Maritimo is busy with beach goers, the hotel stands out simply through excellent service. From the reserved parking sport when we arrived to the greeting we received from the receptionist, who even made sure to wish my wife happy birthday as we checked- a fact shed picked up when handling the registration with our passports. Efficient and very, very friendly throughout. The room was modern, clean and very well appointed. Great water pressure on the shower. Breakfast was excellent and both meals throughly enjoyed with great seafront views.

Joegold -

First class service

Staff at the hotel are always cheerful and keen to help. The hotel itself is about ten minutes walk along a picturesque pedestrian path from the town centre but plenty of bars and restaurants on the way. The location is ideal however, right on the beach, and quieter than closer to town. A superb hotel in a very attractive resort. Never felt ripped off anywhere.

Everything you wish for

A friend recommended this hotel and we were more than satisfied - everything was excellent from the moment we arrived to the day we left. Our room, 305, was excellent with an amazing terrace with two sunbeds and umbrella and also sofa and table. Perfect for relaxing late afternoon. However, the staff are the reason this hotel is so good. All the receptionists were very friendly and helpful. The waiters at the hotel restaurant were excellent also and nothing was too much trouble. If you wanted some amendment to a dish, they were more than happy to oblige. We ate at several restaurants in the old town and felt that the restaurant at the Maritimo was as good as any. Will definitely return.

Sue W -

Lovely hotel

The best hotel ever, lying right at the beach great location.Very quiet outside at night.Car parking in the underground garage. Very clean everywhere. Staff is very friendly and welcoming.The receptionists were very helpful. Got a room in third floor with sea view (302) couldnt been better. Very good breakfast , they makes omelet and fried eggs if you ask for it. Had dinner at the restaurant every night because the food was excellent and the service from Kreso was great, he saved my bottle of rose-wine to the next night. Everything was just perfect, would definitely stay here again later, loved it all.


Excellent in every aspect

The short version… perfect in so many ways! And the slightly longer, more informative account… this hotel comes with recommendation after recommendation, which we can only reinforce. Our positive impressions began in advance of our arrival after speaking with Ana whose helpful advice and friendly nature gave us a great feeling in anticipation of our upcoming visit. Arriving in our hire car shortly after midnight Nenad the overnight receptionist dealt with us so pleasantly, sorting the parking and giving us very useful information about the locale, Makarska and the mountains too. Arriving in our room, it was a lovely touch that staff had provided us a plate of cold meats, cheeses and a drink as a welcome on our late arrival. The hotel itself was ideal for us. Only 22 rooms, it is in excellent condition, ideally set out. It offers safe and secure underground parking with personalized bays during your stay with a lift to all floors. Our room had a seaview, which was beautiful to wake to each morning. I can’t comment on the views to the rear of the hotel overlooking the mountains other than to say the one couple we spoke to who looked out this way said they were happy with their aspect. Rooms are kept lovely and clean by attentive staff. Bedrooms are very nice, with modern decor, well sized for a holiday duration and the bathrooms large and well set out, with large shower cubicle and hot powerful shower (no bath). Breakfast is superb, it is heaven to enjoy in the morning sun overlooking the beach from the restaurant terrace as the squirrels run overhead. There is a good choice of hot and cold options: cereals, fruit, yoghurt, sausage, bacon, boiled eggs, cold meats, cheeses, small pastries and for anything that isn’t there like fried or poached eggs, it is no problem to simply ask any of the superb and friendly waiters to fix you up. To each by name… Mario, Ivan, Kresimir (thank you again for the gift of BiH coins) and Sandro we are so grateful to you all for helping make our stay so memorable. The hotel is located a stones throw from the beach in a relatively quieter area of Makarska, no more than 15 minutes walk from the lovely harbor & the Old Town Square with hotels and numerous choice of restaurants on your way. We found however that turning right out of the hotel offered what we found to be our preferred restaurants with very tasty food, plenty of choice at very reasonable cost. Many is the night we sat side by side enjoying a drink whilst waiting for our meal and watching the sun set (for sunset aficionados it’s maybe worth pointing out that this doesnt occur out in the bay over Brac which without thinking too much about I simply assumed it would, imagining it to be due west. It actually sets looking back up towards Split, inland of the beach and practically out of sight - shame)! The Maritimo as a restaurant itself offers gorgeous food and an excellent choice - well worth staying in for. The sea is wonderfully clear and the colours it reflects, beautiful. The beaches, as in the whole of Croatia are shingle and not sand and you are well advised to wear swim shoes for protection not only from the rocks but from sea urchins too. Dont worry if you don’t bring these with you everywhere sells them here Which brings me to say to Svjetlana and Tanja we really cannot thank you enough for all the help and advice you gave us throughout, and the homework you so kindly provided too to ensure we got the most from our visit to Croatia. For your friendliness and the way you came into our lives for our all too brief stay we were very sad to leave. To ALL the staff at the Maritimo - a really heartfelt and enormous thank you. To anyone contemplating booking – dont hesitate! We hope, and we are sure you will enjoy it every bit as much as we did. PS – the air conditioning is a breeze to operate – it just doesnt work if the balcony door is open! 😉

Excellent service, very clean rooms. All other excellent reviews are spot on. Ana went out of her way to help us with ferry tickets and made our first hectic day and night in Croatia after many hours of traveling so much easier. Thank you again, Ana! Svetlana and rest of staff were wonderful, too, and even let us come down early for breakfast so we could catch our ferry to Brac on time. Fabulous dinner at their beach front restaurant, too! Highly recommend and wish we could have stayed longer than 1 night.

Freundlichkeit und service traumhaft

jederzeit wieder, spitzen Hotel - da können sich andere 5sterneschuppen noch was abschauen. Das Personal ist wirklich bemüht und zuvorkommend. Da bleiben eigentlich keine Wünsche mehr offen. Absolut zu empfehlen

Tolles Hotel, Super Service!

Wir waren für 2 Nächte im Maritimo und wären gerne länger geblieben. Da wir es gerne ruhig haben, war das Hotel das Richtige. Es ist in Makarska schon etwas mehr los, aber das Hotel liegt eher am Rand und sehr ruhig und trotzdem ist alles gut erreichbar. Zimmer sehr sauber und schön eingerichtet. Ausblick wunderschön aufs Meer. Strand vor der Türe und um die Ecke gibt es auch Fahrräder auszuborgen mit diesen wir die nächsten Strände super erkunden konnten. Infrastruktur bietet alles. Essen kann man auch im Hotel und es war sehr gut! Frühstück Top! Das Hotel ist sehr gut gelegen um Rund um die Makarska Küste alles zu erkunden. Das Service hat uns auch begeistert, freundliche Kellner und die Damen an der Rezeption waren Super bemüht! Danke an das Maritimo Hotel, dass uns so einen schönen Aufenthalt ermöglich hat!

Einfach nur gut

Das Hotel ist sieben Jahre alt und sieht wie neu aus. Das Personal ist superfreundlich. Wir hatten ein Superior Zimmer im letzten Stock mit einer Terrasse mit Blick aufs Meer. Das Zimmer war groß, sehr schön und sehr sauber. Das Frühstück auf der Terrasse mit Blick aufs Meer ein Genuß. Die Promenade führt direkt ins Zentrum von Makarska. Das Auto stand in der Garage. Leider waren wir nur zwei Tage da. Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen.

Super Hotel

Das Personal ist sehr höflich und zuvorkommend gewesen, jeder Wunsch wurde uns erfüllt. Die Zimmer sind sehr sehr sauber und relativ groß. Wir haben uns sehr sehr wohl und willkommen gefühlt. Das Frühstück war gut, für jeden war etwas dabei. Auf Nachfrage bekam man auch frisches Omlett oder Pfannkuchen. Die Kellner sind sehr höflich und immer für einen Spaß zu haben. Sie konnten sogar gut deutsch sprechen. Der Aufenthalt war einfach wunderbar und ich empfehle dieses Hotel nur weiter! Ich komme nächstes Jahr wieder!

Kleines Top-Hotel in bester Lage

Dieses Hotel ist sehr sauber und hat sehr gutes Personal. Man fühlt sich dort einfach wohl bei dem sehr freundlichen Personal- besonders der Rezeption. Das Essen im Restaurant sehr gut. Günstig ist es, ein Zimmer in der 2 oder 3.Etage mit Meerblick zu haben wegen der schönen Aussicht, Der nahe Ort Makarska mit dem Hafen ist wunderschön, Dort kann man mit den Schiffen die anderen Inseln besuchen, Die Tiefgarage zu benutzen ist empfehlenswert, da Parkplätze rar sind wegen der Promenade vor dem Haus. Morgens, sowie abends ist es schön draußen zu speisen auf der Terrasse. 4 Sterne wären gerechtfertigt für dieses Hotel.

Ein herrlicher Fleck!

Sehr freundliches und aufmerksames Personal. Das Hotel ist klein, ruhig und wunderbar am Strand gelegen. Der schöne Promenadenweg führt einem direkt ins beschauliche Städtchen. Strand sauber, Wasser klar, Essen sehr gut.

We stayed at the Maritimo Hotel last year for two weeks and we were delighted with everythng about the Hotel. The staff were all helpful and friendly, the rooms were bright, very clean and comfortable, and a good choice of food was offered every day. We have tried to book again for this year but it is already fully booked, need I say more.

Holiday heaven

The hotel and staff are fantastic,friendly, nothing is too much trouble. The restauraunt serves first class fresh food all at a reasonable price. We will make a return visit to this hotel and Makarska.


Excellent hotel

I had read many good reviews about this hotel, and they were well deserved. Everything was perfect. The staff, location, comfort, cleanliness, food. Our only concern was that the portions of food were sometimes too large. We were made to feel very welcome, and we would definitely stay here if we return to Makarska.

David H -

So very lovely

We absolutely adore this hotel. We stayed two nights ago and drove up to Split for an intended two night stay but ended up leaving Split early to come back here for an extra day in Makarska. Everything about the hotel is so pleasant . The staff are 100% helpful and just plain nice and unpretentious. The food at the restaurant is good quality for the price and there really aren't words in the English dictionary to describe how beautiful the setting is at sunset. Beach in front of the hotel is so handy to get some morning sunshine after breakfast and it's a good stroll to the downtown area walking past all kinds of cheerful people watching scenarios at restaurants and cafes. I must say I'm also really picky about pillows and these are good! The linens are also crisp and clean white cotton and the rooms have an airy breezy quality to them appropriate to the beach atmosphere . No strong smells in the rooms and all feels very clean and inviting with plenty of charm. We will be back for another romantic holiday like we had this time. Thank you Hotel Maritimo for knocking our socks off ! <3

Great place to stay in Makarska

A real find. One of the best hotels we have stayed in, Great service and assitance from all the friendly staff, reception and bar staff, couldn't do enough for you. And what a view to have when you are sitting down to a meal. Have definitely recommended to others.

Three star hotel, five star service

I would just echo what the majority of other guests have said about this hotel. Although 'only' three star, it's definitely better than many four star hotels I've stayed in, and service from the staff - at reception and in the restaurant/bar - was at all times attentive, friendly and efficient - definitely five star. It's great to see staff who genuinely want to look after you on holiday. Our room was designated a 'park view' room (with a balcony) at the rear corner of the hotel though you didn't get much of a view of either the park/hills or the seafront. No matter - the room was quite spacious with an excellent shower room and beds which, in our experience, were a little softer than the normal hard beds you seem to get around Europe. And you could take a very decent breakfast (buffet, but eggs cooked to order) or have a drink right on the edge of the Adriatic - lovely! The hotel is nicely situated about a fifteen minute leisurely stroll into Makarska centre, or you could walk for miles the other way along the front. Makarska itself exceeded my expectations. Interesting enough for several days ambling around or people and boat watching from the cafes on the front, but not too big and brash (although we went in May - I was told it gets VERY busy in July/August). Also, take a boat or ferry from the harbour to Brac and Hvar for an enjoyable day out. The Croatian Adriatic coast is a delight - I just hope it doesn't get spoilt - there seemed to be quite a lot of new development going on. If you're walking by/through building sites do take care because it seems that Croatia builders have no regard for Health and Safety! If you've not been to Croatia before, go now and stay in Makarska at the Maritimo. From there you can get to Split and (just about, though it's a long day out) to Dubrovnik Highly Recommended.

Great hotel

Wish we could stay here for a week, but we're only here for a night. Arrived yesterday. The reception was very friendly and helpful. Our room is a delight with a balcony and view of the sea. Beds (we had two twins made into a king) very comfortable and with brand new sheets. Room has a frig. The shower couldn't be better with a full stream of hot water. Room immaculately lean. Breakfast included with the room. Variety of fruits, breads, yogurt, cold cuts,etc. really nice promenade and walk to old main port. Awesome sunset !!

Dejligt hotel med rene og pæne værelser, meget venligt og servicemindet personale. God mad. Familiær og hyggelig stemning. Hvis vi får lejlighed til at komme tilbage til Makarska vil vi vælge hotel Maritimo igen

It couldn't be better

We spent our honeymoon there at the end of may and it was the best choice. We had a sea view room, it was modern and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. The city center is about 10 min by walk. The restaurant is next to the beach is amazing. Local food and internationals too are very delicious. There's a lot of opportunity to spend your time around Makarska, at the reception you'll get every info. Good to know, parking under the hotel costs 7€/day. We get extra surprise for our honeymoon and for my birthday as well 🙂 Just 5 star cause it's not possible to give more. Definitely recommended! 😉

Maritimo - a little gem

We spent two weeks in this fabulous hotel. It is in beautiful surroundings, with excellent staff who cannot do enough for you. It is a small family-run hotel with the restaurant by the sea. Fabulous food. Sunsets galore! We were made very welcome. Cannot wait to return!

Jetsetter -

3rd time back, love this place

This is the 3rd time we have returned. Such a lovely, friendly and clean hotel in one of the best spots in Makarska. You simply can't beat having your breakfast outside watching the early morning sun. We will return.

Einfach zum Wohlfuhlen

Zu Fuß ist man in wenigen Minuten im Zentrum, das Meer zum Baden ist direkt vor der Haustür. Alle Angestellten sind superfreundlich, die Zimmer sehr gepflegt, die Aussicht ist toll - ganz besonders von den Superior-Zimmern mit den Riesenbalkonen ganz oben. Das Restaurant ist wirklich empfehlenswert sowohl bez. Qualität wie auch preislich. Man sitzt sehr schön direkt am Meer, ohne das es den oft üblichen Aufschlag im Preis und Abschlag in der Qualität gibt. Einziger Nachteil: die Tiefgarage ist schon ziemlich eng zum Rangieren, dafür sind die Plätze mit Namen beschriftet.

dakujem celemu kolektivu Hotela Maritimo za uzasnu dovolenku

Härligt strandnära hotell

Fint och rent hotell med mycket trevlig personal. Hade superior rum högst upp med stor balkong och underbar utsikt, när vi var där var det dock så varmt så man satt inte på balkongen. God frukost speciellt eftersom man kunde beställa tex omelett och pannkaka(inte alla dagar) dock saknade vi att vissa saker tog slut och inte fylldes på. Extremt nära till bad, butiker och restauranger.

Super hotel

We were really impressed by this hotel. Location was great - right on the beach. Lovely to have breakfast overlooking beach and sea. Rooms and communal areas all spotlessly clean. Cleaning staff very pleasant and efficient. Receptionists all very friendly and helpful. Food in restaurant for dinner very good. Would definitely stay again although would prefer quieter time of year as the resort was very busy and on a couple of nights it was a little noisy outside.

2nd visit and even better than the first

Such a warm genuine welcome from Svetlana on reception. Just like meeting up with an old friend! Lovely clean and comfortable room with amazing views. Always cleaned early whilst we were at breakfast and the cleaners are really pleasant and cheerful. The waiting staff are so relaxed but very professional also. They offered advice if needed regarding the menu. We stayed b+b this time as we wanted to sample some of the many restaurants in Makarska. We never had a disappointing meal and prices, although higher than on our last visit September 15, were still extremely good value for money. We esp enjoyed the black and white chicken at Dinners Delight. It certainly was delightful!! Having said that the food at the hotel was wonderful too. You will be spoilt for choice in Makarska! One of our favourite things is to be able to eat breakfast outside, sitting looking out across the water. So relaxing and a great start to the day. The breakfast is as you would expect of a continental type breakfast. Eggs are also available and the chef will cook them any way to your liking and any fillings you chose for omelettes. From the hotel if you turn right you can walk right the way to the end of the beach and there are quite few nice bars to stop off in on the way. If you turn left out of the hotel you will come to the town and harbour area. Lots going on here and and a favourite area for the locals. Lots of ATMs too. We popped into the museum which is in this area. It's not very big but some of the photos of old Makarska are worth taking a look at. The lady in there has very little English but we all managed to make ourselves understood and she was very knowledgeable. We visited in early June this time and it was noticeably quieter then early September. We asked Svetlana why and she said that their season doesn't really getting going until the middle of June. We left on 17th and the last couple of days were a lot busier. So, if you want a break with good weather early June you can still enjoy all that Makarska has to offer before the crowds arrive, unlike most other places at that time of year. It is truly a gem of a hotel in a gem of a resort!
