If you like to be first in the know, Hotel Sol Sipar is a good choice this year. Completely refurbished from top to bottom, it re-opens in June 2017 and promises to be as fresh and appealing as the Adriatic on a sunny morning; the hotel’s right on the beach so you can make a direct comparison.
Families definitely seem to have been front of mind in the recent redesign and the hotel doesn’t miss a trick from fun swimming pools to creative kids clubs for five to 12 year olds, water sports on the beach and a summer long programme of activities. And, as Umag hosts the Croatia Tennis Open every year in July, it’s probably no surprise to find outstanding new courts and coaching as part of the refurb too.
Apart from its beaches, flawlessly clean water and wonderful weather, the Umag Riviera’s also a bit of a wellness legend. So when kids have Mini Club in their diary, you can indulge in outdoor yoga, aqua-aerobics, fitness classes or simply soothe away a few cares on a sun-lounger by the sea.
