The dining options here are varied and delicious, with numerous restaurants and bars to choose from. Savour fresh Mediterranean food at Cilantro or divine Italian dishes at La Pasta. We especially love The Market, where the menu has fresh seafood specialities each evening.

Serves up Mediterranean cuisine in chic, modern surrounds.

La Pasta
As it's name suggests, the menu here is filled with Italian delights.

The hotel's main restaurant, which is where breakfast is served, has views out across the Adriatic.

The Market
Specialises in fresh, locally-sourced fish, featuring calamari, scampi, prawns and even lobster on its menu.

The Butcher
The perfect spot for meat lovers. Grilled to perfection, choice cuts of meat from across the globe and served here, with an extensive wine list to complement your meal.

The Rooftop Breakfast
A definite highlight here (available during the summer months, weather permitting), featuring everything from freshly-squeezed juices to warm rolls and fried bacon and eggs.

A small family style restaurant serving traditional Croatian cuisine.

The Marco Polo Kids’ Club runs throughout the summer holidays for children aged from one year all the way up to 15 years (opening dates and times are subject to change). Provision for some of the age groups stretches into May half-term, too. The resort has a gaming room for kids over 11 years. We also love the hotel’s week-long Sports Academies, which cost extra. There’s everything from football and tennis to squash, water sports and swimming* as well as the Campioni Soccor Academy which is run by ex Premier League players (academies are seasonal and openind dates and times are subject to change).

The Two-Bedroom Residence Seaview rooms are ideal for families. Modern and bright, they have two separate bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, a separate dining area, and a kitchenette that’s handy for preparing quick snacks and drinks. Our favourite part, though, is the private terrace, which opens up incredible views of the Adriatic Sea.
