PRIME HOTELS

MARVIE HOTEL & HEALTH, SPLIT

Quality rooms with a spa centre and rooftop pool. Walking distance from old town and the beach.

Brilliantly located for access to the beach and the town, Hotel Marvie is a modern hotel with excellent facilities. It’s spotlessly clean and the staff are expertly trained. The beautiful rooftop pool & bar area, with views over the ocean, is the perfect place to kick back if you want to relax in the sun in your free time.

Our Opinion: The rooms here simply do their job very well. The real highlight is the knowledgeable, friendly staff and that stunning rooftop pool area.
