Apartments and Villas near Postira, Croatia
Slightly confusing - although the apartment appeared to be managed by the Pastura hotel it was actually owned by Vrilo hotel - so any problems had to be reported to them and we couldn't charge anything at the Pastura.. Cleaning seemed slightly erratic - never sure when they were due so couldn't just leave towels on the floor as requested.
Impressed with: Still unspoilt, good food, cheap and friendly people.
Recommend: Rafting over at Omis. Bracera restaurant for squid chips and lovely salad.
Villa Comments. The apartments are not offered the same service as in the hotel so for example they are not cleaned every day, this is not included with self-catering apartments.

The property is very good and may have more confort simply adding dish washer and washing machine. More ovre the air coinditioning system located on the roof is a little bit noisy. People of the hotel are very nice and kind, always helpful.
Impressed with: The beauty of the beaches and the kindness of people.

Good-Excellent. There was some late night noise from the restaurant/bar below the property. The close proximity of this was not made clear in the brochure description - the word 'nearby' was used.
Impressed with: The weather, friendly and helpful people on Brac.
Not impressed with: Slow service in some Split restaurants - principally those that catered for tourists.
Stayed July 2012

They took care of everything we needed and were very helpful. Brought us a bottle of house wine as well! :) It was wrong check-in hotel. We were told that Croatian villas have not changed this info despite informing about this mistake! Only thing - I didn't like extra fee when making transaction.
Impressed with: Nature, beach & weather conditions
Not impressed with: Rain for two days, but this never can be predictable :)
Recommend: Explore the whole island!
Favourite villa moment: Special offer: 30% discount & complimentary breakfast. Otherwise we would have chosen another villa. Standard offer is too expensive!
Villa Comments: Correct check in details have been updated.

It can be quite noisy, in the evening, it's situated above a cafe. And the little town comes alive in the evening. In general yes, good service at the reception of the hotel, the owner of the apartment helped with the removal of the wasps nest, but couldn't help us with the wifi.
We booked an boat at aventur. Boat was somewhat old but working, service was good and most of the time friendly.
Thanks for all your help with our special questions, everything we asked for was picked up fast and flexible and friendly!!
Impressed with: Coast, sea, all towns are well kept.
Recommend: Restaurant panorama,

Really lovely location - overlooking the small harbour at Splitska
Stayed August 2009
Amazing views from this property. Excellent cleaning staff.
Hotel staff didn't explain how to get hot water (or heating which we never succeeded in getting and certainly needed it last week) which would have been helpful at the outset. Lots of semi wild cats around - due to proximity of fish processing plant no doubt - and the upstairs of the apartment did smell of cats - one day we found a cat inside the apartments so I imagine they are getting in and weeing/spraying whilst people have their French doors open. Might be worth informing people of the need to be vigilant / keep doors closed as the smell wasn't pleasant and will only get worse.
Impressed with: Cleanliness Absence of tourist tat.
Not impressed with: Manner of staff in immigration.
Recommend:Walk round to Splitska for a meal in either restaurant
Favourite villa moment: When the sun eventually came out. Waking up with the view of the mainland from your bed is pretty impressive
Stayed May/June 2013
Excellent. The facilities were great although a washing machine would have been handy! :-) I assumed there would be one so packed light but not the end of the world. The WiFi could not be picked up in apartment 2 and only in the window of the sitting room in apartment 1
Impressed with: The clean water.
Not impressed with: The food.... I was hoping for a bit more authentic food. It was quite bland and salty and the fish was very expensive. Most food consisted of Pizza or food off the grill.
Recommend: Trip to Hercules was worth it to see the old Roman Mine. All the restaurants were lovely and everyone was really friendly and welcoming.
Favourite villa moment: Having al fresco meals with the stunning harbour view and buzz from restaurant.
Stayed July 2014
The Villa is very spacious and well laid out. The outdoor area is superb with lots of place to relax and sit out. The pool was also superb and extremely clean. A lovely find.
Owners were very kind. We arrived very late to the property, 2.30am due the late arrival of our flight from Leeds. They were there to greet us still and had left us a welcome meal and a drink which was so kind. They were always at the end of a mobile phone for help if we needed it, such as ferry times or dustbin collection times. Lovely helpful owners.
Impressed with: The friendliness of the people and the lack of 'Brits'.
Not impressed with: The midgey bites
Recommend: Braza was one of our favourite restaurants especially the Jumbo pizza for our teenagers. The service there was brilliant We went on a catamaran cruise from Supertar which was brilliant too Bol is worth visiting and we took a ferry to Zhanti Rat beach Pancakes from the bar just two doors up from the villa from 5pm
Favourite villa moment: The swimming pool first thing in the morning and last thing at night. Crossing the road to the sea.
Stayed August 2014
The property was beautiful. The pool and BBQ were really nice and useful. The location was also perfect right on the sea. The owners were incredibly nice and accommodative, extremely helpful and in touch on anything we needed.
Impressed with: The weather and clear water.
Favourite villa moment: Relaxing by the pool and bbq-ing.
Stayed May 2014
The addition of bikes is a great bonus of this property and overall the cottage has its own rustic charm. We have really enjoyed our stay there.
Recommend: Quiet and perfect for the family stay, the nearest café to Vala restaurant and Vala itself.
Favourite villa moment: Large terrace and brand new bicycles which were great for commuting between Splitska village, Postira and Dol.
Stayed July 2016
Excellent – Good.
The state of repair/quality of the supplied bikes was poor. Although once contacted, the caretaker was quick to remedy the faults with the bikes. That being said, the good service by the caretaker did not improve the quality of the bikes and would suggest if like me, the main reason for taking the villa was the supplied bikes, then don't let this be a deciding factor, as good quality bikes are available locally for rates of £10.00 per day.
Stayed August/September 2013
It was absolutely OK.
We had a problem at the beginning with the telephone number. We couldn’t call it, then a local person helped us. Maybe you should describe how to call the Croatian phone numbers. We decided that for next time we will come back to the same place, to the same property if its possible. We loved the stay there!
The "agent" he was just perfect! He is really nice and helpful!
Impressed with: The totally clean sea.
Not impressed with: The prices...
Recommend: There is a tourist route called "Hercules" which is a 15 minute walk in the village, it was nice
Favourite villa moment: The dinners in the balcony.
