We stayed here during our recent trip in December. Very pleasant manager, we checked in late at night and things were in order, even the AC was on, so that we would be comfortable.

This is the 3rd time I have stayed and each time has been very pleasant, comfortable, clean, Management go out of their way to be helpful. The location with the Broadwater and many Restaurants close by is excellent and surprised on how quiet it is being on a busy road. I recommend this Jadran to families on a budget.
