Reviewed 3 August 2016

If they go All inclusive offer, they have much to do. Unfriendly and depressed staff. They stood out as a waiter at the bar (there was is only one). One through hanging on the phone, the other is thinking, that we are there for him and not one for us and with a long tongue. Tables at the bar were full of glasses, we had to clean that tables for ourself, the floor didn't clean anyone at all (spilled coffee for several days). they offered spirits only travarica and lozovača (we were already at a 3 *, but the choice was much higher). Bar closure at 22.00.
Food in the restaurant: at breakfast only hard boiled eggs, no otherwise prepared eggs except, no fried bacon or something, only cooked hot dogs. Lettuce was very poor, the desserts - they are sure that bananas are the limit. Once the rise gone out after half an hour.
Available deckchairs under criticism. There is no animation for adults, even music from the radio was not at the terrace ...They have to consider to exchange the staff...

We chose this hotel mainly due to close location to the ones of the nicer beach Slanica Bay on Murter Island. Also we did not want to be disturbed loud music and discos around, so Hotel Colentum was a right place for this.
Hotel is very close to the Slanica Beach with sand and small stones. As the beach is in the cove there are not waves and it's ideal for small child like we have. Entry into the sea is slow and after 10 meters height of water is still knee-deep so You can play a water games here.
Back to the hotel. Fact is that it's old but clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. What I personally appreciate is that whole staff is local, no seasons worker from foreign countries and You can enjoy really local atmosphere.
We had a very small room, 21 square meters with three beds and there were no more space around, but for the sleeping was OK. All rooms have air conditioning and we really appreciated this as we was there when outside was 38 degrees in the shadow. Each room have a balcony but only with one chair, maybe only in our case.
On small TV You are able to watch only 3 to 4 channels, but You are here to enjoy sun and beach and not to watch a TV. You can do this at home :)
All guests have all inclusive package and I was very surprise with all inclusive offered by this Hotel. Basically I did not expected nothing extraordinary, because of 3 star hotel, but food was very taste. Even ice cream as a snack on afternoon what is rare for 3 stars hotel from my experience.
In the all inclusive package are also included drinks, beer (Lasko Pivo), white and red wine (do not expect too big quality :) ) and one sort of alcohol, Local Rakija Travarica. That's all from alcoholic drinks. From Non alcoholic You can choose water, caffe, juice, cola etc.
Near the hotels are 2 water slides for fee. 4 Kuna one ride.
I personally recommend a bech bar Morski Rat, very nice, with good food and perfect coffe.
Also You can rent a bike in the hotel and enjoy bike trip around the murter island with lot of nice beach around. We stayed only in Slanica bay because of small child and sand, but I recommend to travel around.
From the hotel is footpath to Murter city, around 20 minutes. City is very old and very nice like all croation cities. I recommend a winery and oil store Babitch in the old city. It's very traditional and You can bought a local forgoten sort of wine here. Owner would like to bring old traditions back to the roots. There is possibility to buy a wine made by old procedures and not the modern wine which I call "parfumes".
In Summary Hotel Colentum is good choice if You are not expecting too much and You are on the vacation because of sun and sea.
We did not use a lot of sun and beach, because our daughter got a fever and angina, but I can confirm that Croatia Doctors were very professional and they recover her during 4 days. But this is not a fails of hotel, but those things may happen. I recommend to have an European insurance card from your local Health Insurance Company as our commerce insurance was not accepted in the hospital and local doctors so we had to pay everything by cash.

Room Tip: Rooms located to west are not heated whole days with sun.

We had the overall impression that the management of this Hotel had lost it's desire to provide even a facsimile of adequate service. The room was somewhat dated and the TV positively antique.
Whoever fancies breakfast with stone-hard, half-frozen eggs, one choice of cheapest bologna, stale cereal, soda instead of orange juice, and bread arranged and laid out barehanded by the personnel, has come to the right place.
Standing directly in front of the room door were the service carts, making it difficult to move the luggage into the room.
The absolute disaster occurred when we turned out the lights...
The AC was defective so it was necessary to open the windows to refresh the stale humid air in the room. This allowed a swarm of mosquitos to invade the room. I can't remember having had such a miserable night. I slept a total of perhaps 3 hours and ended up with dozens of welts.
Hearing our complaints the management granted a reduction in price of only 5%.
We were able to find infinitely better accommodations for far less cost during our entire stay in Croatia.

I've been in this hotel several times and I think it is a very good option and value for money. It is a 3 star so don't expect more than that but you have an option all-inclusive with the food being always served as buffet which is very nice. It is two steps away from the beach and it can get very crowded during high season. Off the peak season is just a little paradise. The rooms are not big but they have the essentials (including a small fridge). It's comfortable and the staff is friendly.
