Bluesun Hotels: Hotel Alan Spa

Croatia has so many hotels it’s hard to choose. We’ve stayed in many, so we want to share with you some of the very best, like the Bluesun Hotels found across Croatia. Each and everyone has been terrific. Although their dozen hotels all have great things to offer, we’ve narrowed them down to those that take your holidays in Croatia to another level.

Bluesun Hotel Alan, Starigrad Paklenica

Tucked between the Adriatic Sea and the Velebit Mountains is Starigrad Paklenica. That’s where you’ll find Hotel Alan. It’s one of those Bluesun Hotels located smack bang on the beach, the sound of the sea just a few steps away. Soak up some rays or take a dip in the crystal-clear blue waters off the Croatian coast.

Hotel Alan has a lot to offer. They provide a myriad of activities for families – such hings as mountain climbing, children’s entertainment, and, of course, swimming. All make great activities for you and your family to enjoy together. Our own family, for example, loved the photo jeep safari tour they arranged.

Whether you’re traveling solo or with a special someone, you should try out one of their Nordic hiking excursions or perhaps a little rafting. You can always relax together later that evening in the wellness spa that features Velebit aromatherapy. Retire to your room feeling relaxed and refreshed. Rooms are nicely appointed, and the staff are quite attentive. This hotel understands the meaning of customer service and will treat you well.
