Not really a family hotel not enough for kids. A hotel for people who want to sit in the sun all day ever day and nothing else. Need lots of money for water sports. Swimming pool pumps have been broken for at least a year if you check reviews disappointing. Showers broken in indoor pool. Complained to staff replied we are very busy. Out door pool bar is shut till 2pm you have to go inside hotel to get drinks and bring them out not my idea of 4* treatment. All hotel. Com pictures are well out of date hotel does not look like pictures. Water flooding from lights in rain.

Very nice hotel with own beach as well as pool. Very good breakfast-great variety and delicious. Great view from room. Although not in Zadar proper, just a quick drive (or taxi or Uber) into town.

Amazing location. Good hotel, breakfast, sauna.
Except for the mosquitoes wanting to fly in the room and the tourist taking on the next balcony late at night and early in the morning, this was a great stay. Try out the sea view sauna. Wow. Amazing breakfast. Good large hotel. Lots of tourists. Nice staff.

Nice but dated.
The hotel is dated. Seems straight out of 1970. Mattress and air conditioner was ancient. Breakfast was amasing but with many tour buses at the hotel breakfast was a little hectic. Still a nice hotel but we were a little disappointed in its quality.

Last minute break
We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Pinija, room was good we had a side sea view room which was lovely. Everything was great tasty breakfast lots of variety and plenty of it.The only criticism would be that all bars were closed except for the one near reception, the hotel was busy so pool bar would have been nice during the day. The surrounding area also was very quiet one restaurant open and a cafe bar which were both excellant but obviously all starting to close for the season. Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Pinija.

Just ok
The hotel is ok but not as nice the pictures shows. Carpet in hallway are in rough shape and the smell is questionable. The room was freshly renovated but the A/C unit was old and not really working and the mattress not that comfortable. Overall the hotel looks dated. Lots of retired people walking around the building wearing only speedos... The check out is 10am which is fairly early, but don’t worry the cleaning lady will walk in your room at 8am to make sure you’re not late for that ! Overall I’d say ok but definetely worth what we paid for.

Great stay
We had a great time and were completely satisfied with the property and the service. The only thing SOME people may not like, as this is the case in most if not all of Croatia, is that there is no sand on the beaches. If you MUST have sand go to Italy or Jamaica. Otherwise the water is great and everything else was fine. Not in Zafar. If sightseeing is on the agenda, you'll have to drive into town that is very nice.

Adequate and comfortable hotel, with most of the amenities you would expect. Attracts an older demographic. Local area is traditional. Good for retired people, not suitable for young families. Pool was good, beach area is a large patio adjacent to the sea
