1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The holiday was very memorable for us as a family, we all loved the area, the activities and the apartment - our other two families on our group were really nice and we were well looked after.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

I would ask a) how the activities will work, and what the size of your groups would be. For example, there were 13 on our group (3 families) but on some days we were also added to another tour group of 26 which was too big for some things (ie. the canyoning), I would also check how long the activities will last for and whether lunch is included (due to the above, our canyoning approx. 6 hours, and we were not allowed to take any food or water with us - we left Seget at 8.30 and finished activity at 5pm)

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes I do think so, the groups who organised the activities would have benefitted from our bookings / also the restaurants as well, and local drivers.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

I would give it a 4 - we did really enjoy it! just being joined with the bigger group at times made it slightly less enjoyable, we were not given any explanation of why this happened or what to expect. I also didn't meet a anyone from our tour operator which I was surprised about but the Reps that we did meet were very nice. On the welcome meal our reps were not there when we arrived and they then arrived quite late into the meal.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Everything was memorable. For me the most exciting part was maybe the visit to Vidova gora and Sheppard’s Village for lamb supper, but also the friendliness of the staff and Croatian people in general.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

“Just do it!” as Daniel would say! The company lives up to their name. It is the best way to enjoy lots of activities, see the country & keep the kids occupied.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, it certainly did. It used local agencies and we’ve visited local families to see their way of life.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Fabulous! Some of the most enjoyable weeks we have had on holiday – helped of course by the other guests and the staff!

Mountain biking down with breathtaking views of the sea.

The standard of the activities and organisation is absolutely brilliant, unbeatable. The accommodation was less phenomenal (fine, but just not exemplary).

Yes I did - there were four or five people we met at the agency, all of whom were Croatian.

review 2 Nov 2015

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Jumping into the freezing source water after a bike ride in intense heat! That was an amazing feeling. And also the canyoning, rafting and really all the activities were fantastic. We had a wonderful holiday.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Go for it! You need to be averagely fit, and able to stand fairly intense heat if you go in the summer. It's a great holiday for families, especially with teenagers.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Certainly, the hotel we stayed in was occupied only by our group while we were there. Our guides Barisha and Maria were wonderful, attentive and available at all hours to help us.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent! We hope to come again and do it all over!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The people, the food, the island! We felt at home with the staff of the wonderful Illyrian Resort; Ivan, Maira, Maya, Nino, Maida, and the owners, a wonderful couple. This is a fantastic family owned business that provides the nicest and most soothing atmosphere to relax and enjoy with your family.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

This is an excellent holiday destination for families who want to avoid noisy, big resort type of holidays. The island of Brac is absolutely gorgeous, the people are wonderful, particularly all the staff at the Illyrian Resort. They all made us feel like family. The area is not crowded although it relies on tourism.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Absolutely, the hotel is managed by a wonderful family, all of whom are from Croatia.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent!
