Croatia Hotels: Bluesun Hotels & Resorts
Croatia has so many hotels it’s hard to choose – we’ve stayed in many, so we want to share with you one of the best – like the Bluesun Hotels found across Croatia. Each and everyone has been terrific. Their dozen hotels have great things to offer, but we’ve narrowed it down to four that take your holidays in Croatia to another level.
Bluesun Hotel Alan
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 is just a few steps away. Soak up some rays or take a dip in the crystal blue waters off the Croatian coast.
Hotel Alan has a lot to offer. For families, they provide a myriad of activities. Things such as mountain climbing, children’s entertainment, and, of course, swimming. All make great activities for you and your family to enjoy together – our family loved the photo jeep safari tour they arranged.
No matter, if you were 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.

Bluesun Hotel Elaphusa
This Bluesun Hotel is absolutely beautiful. One of Croatia’s elite four-star hotels that are frequented by numerous sports and show business personalities, Hotel Elaphusa offers life in the lap of luxury. Our family loved being so close to Zlatni Rat Beach – a 5 min stroll to and from the beach is very family-friendly.
Recreation activities at Bluesun Elaphusa include tennis, indoor golf, and bowling – really, yes bowling! The nightlife isn’t too bad either – the hotel features a disco and tavern. Hotel Elaphusa is a great place to spend your holiday, with rooms that are beautifully appointed and beds that simply feel incredible. Don’t forget the Thalasso Wellness Center, which is one of the largest wellness spas on the coast of the Adriatic. A session there will relax and soothe the stresses of the day. If the sea calls your name, you are simply steps away from Zlatni Rat Beach and the Port of Bol. This Bluesun Hotel is top class. Local tip: Head to Stina Winery for an afternoon of Croatian wine tasting.

As the hotel is designed with families in mind, extra fun for the kids includes an outdoor pool with children’s area, a playground and a rich entertainment program. Don’t worry, the adults get some bonus features too! Access to the nearby wellness centre of the Elaphusa Blusun Hotel is available, so indulge in that massage you’ve been in need of all year.
End your day with enjoying the Dalmatian dinner which is available twice each week or a show cooking dinner in the hotel’s restaurant while taking in views of the gorgeous Zltani Rat Beach. If you are in the mood for something a bit more romantic, seafood and Bol wine can be had at the Borak Beach Restaurant found next to the sea below the promenade. Cocktail, lounge and pool bars are also available on site – enjoy an adult beverage, you’re on holiday!
Hotel Berulia is also located right beside the sea (are you sensing a theme here?). In fact, it is steps away from Punta Rata Beach, which made it onto the Forbes Top 10 list of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Furthermore, Forbes ranked Punta Rata as the top beach in Europe.
This sprawling resort property features an outdoor swimming pool, top-notch fitness area, a coffee shop complete with a terrace for sipping your brew at sunset, as well as a restaurant, Puz, which serves up tantalizing food. The rooms are appointed in a modern, minimalist fashion, which speaks to the carefree and simple coastal lifestyle of the surrounding area. You will probably not spend much time in your room, as beautiful as it may be, because you will be too busy exploring the manicured grounds and activities this property has to offer.

Bluesun Hotel Marina
The 3-star, award-winning Brela hotel is an excellent holiday choice for families with children.

This is one of the finest hotels in Marija Bistrica. Beautifully appointed plush furniture makes a statement in the lobby, and the rooms that match the same. Hotel Kaj is a real gem.
This property is so opulent that people hold their weddings and receptions on site. Their wellness spa the best in the area, featuring aromatherapy and a few different types of massage packages that are sure to please. The on-site restaurants, Bistrica, and Academia serve up traditional Croatian food with a modern twist. You can also purchase a gourmet tasting plate or be tantalized by their many offerings from the wine boutique. Hotel Kaj is also a great place to host conferences with many large-sized meeting rooms and well-appointed technologies.
Perhaps the most beautiful part about Hotel Kaj is that it is located right in the heart of Marija Bistrica. As such, you can walk to all of the local tourist attractions. Local tip: Check out the Black Madonna just a two min walk from the hotel.
