All-inclusive hotels in Croatia | carefree enjoyment along the Adriatic

Can you think of anything more beautiful than a holiday by the sea? On every beach of the Croatian coast, the azure Adriatic glistens in the sun as if it had been raining diamonds.

If you have booked all-inclusive, you don’t have to bother with the daily scramble to organise meals, whether as a couple or as a family. Meaning you can bask in this heavenly paradise until the very last minute and then take your place at a fully laid table. Bliss!

We have put together a list of hotels on the most popular beaches to show you the most beautiful places to spend your all-inclusive holiday in Croatia. In most hotels, you can customise the offers to suit your individual preferences or simply pay for extra services separately when you are there.

All-inclusive hotel in Istria near Umag

1/4

The environmentally friendly four-star Sol Aurora for Plava Laguna lies on an idyllic natural beach directly on the Adriatic Sea – only a row of trees come between you and the crystal-clear sea. The hotel has built a paved beach section to make it even easier for you to get into the water.

The S-shaped hotel pool is just opposite, on the other side of the trees, which also provide some welcome shade. In the middle of the pool, an olive tree stretches its branches in the sun. The children’s pool is only a few steps away.

The hotel restaurant with its show kitchen also offers culinary theme-based evenings, but of course, you can also eat out – in one of the legendary truffle restaurants, for example.

If you have reserved free rental bikes in advance for your all-inclusive holiday, you can now cycle to Umag in 15 minutes, otherwise it is a 45 minute or so walk along the coast. The small coastal town is famed for its magnificent Venetian buildings.

All-inclusive hotel in Croatia for families and sports enthusiasts

Poreč is a popular seaside resort on the western coast of the Istrian peninsula. The beaches here have a total of ten blue flags between them. One of these is right on your doorstep – either rocky, gravelly, lawned or paved – because it is only a few steps to the sea from Hotel Zorna.

There are so many sports on offer in the hotel that you can choose something different every day or try your hand at something completely new. You can even go water skiing for a surcharge, or explore hidden bays by sailing boat while your little ones take part in a creative workshop – safe in the knowledge that they are being expertly looked after.

Feel like a family excursion? There are many sights worth seeing around Poreč, such as the Baredine stalactite cave and the famous Euphrasius Basilica, whose mosaics are studded with precious stones. The dinosaur park in Funtana is also within easy reach and a paradise for dinosaur fans of all ages.

All-inclusive holiday in Croatia on the Makarska Riviera

1/4

Can’t decide where to go on holiday? It’s often quite difficult to find what everyone wants from their holiday in one place. Not any more – book a family room at the Bluesun Neptun Hotel and you’re sure to be able to tick everybody’s boxes.

To start with, the all-inclusive hotel on the Makarska Riviera is located right on the coast with a four-kilometre-long white pebble beach lined with pine trees. Then the Sveti Jure mountain rises 1,762 m into the sky directly behind the hotel. Not just a paradise for mountaineers, but also for anyone who wants to admire the golden eagles and griffon vultures in the adjacent nature park.

There is culture in abundance in the nearby cities of Split and Dubrovnik or at the famous Medjugorje pilgrimage site. Makarska is also considered a hotspot for nightlife and has a range of clubs with hip DJs. And finally, to treat yourself to a little time off from parenting, rent a boat from the hotel and head for the nearby island of Brač.

All-inclusive in Croatia on the Pelješac peninsula

Take a 200 kilometre of dream coast, an enviable number of sunshine hours, an idyllic bay and a picturesque pebble beach with crystal clear sea, and you have the perfect recipe for holiday happiness together.

The four-star Aminess Grand Azur Hotel on the Pelješac peninsula also offers you a beautiful pool landscape where you can completely relax. There are other dream beaches in the immediate vicinity, such as the sandy beach in the bay of Trstenica.

While your kids are having fun in the mini-club, you can take the opportunity for a little romance. How about just renting a boat and taking a packed lunch with you for a picnic on the island of Korčula? Or finding a nice spot on a cliff and watching the surfers glide over the waves.

Family hotel in Dalmatia with full board plus and a soft spot for children

1/4

The Punta Skala peninsula is said to have the most beautiful sunsets. This is the setting, on the coast of Dalmatia in Petrčane northwest of Zadar, of the sustainably managed four-star superior Falkensteiner Family Diadora.

Despite the rocky coastline, this small natural paradise with its crystal-clear sea and magnificent exotic underwater world also boasts a sandy beach.
The hotel is a true children’s paradise – from the child-friendly check-in and children’s restaurants to the well-thought-out entertainment programme for all age groups. And if you do want to be alone for a few hours, you can book a trustworthy babysitter for your little one at the hotel.

The best way to open your older children’s eyes to a little bit of the culture of the country is to take them to one of the nearby cities like Zadar or Split. Or do you prefer a little adventure? Then take a bus excursion to the picturesque Krka waterfalls.

All-inclusive holiday in Croatia in the Kvarner Bay

There are three modern hotel buildings close together on the extensive Maslinica coast of the Kvarner Bay, framed by palm trees and flowering shrubs. It resembles a huge cruise ship directly on the beach, embedded in a lushly wooded rocky hill.

One of these hotels is the four-star Mimosa Lido Palace. And the special feature: all facilities are available to all guests without restriction – so you are not limited to your own hotel, but can also take advantage of the facilities in the other two hotels to bring even more variety to your holiday.

All-inclusive holidays are not mandatory, but an option in this resort. So you are completely free to expand your booking when you get there. How about a Mediterranean oil massage for example? Or renting a boat at the hotel to explore the island which is always in view from your hotel room.

Bookworms, on the other hand, will certainly appreciate the newspaper kiosk to make sure they do not run short of reading material. Enjoy the crystal-clear sea and the immaculate white pebble beaches. The hotel’s beach – as well as many other beaches in the area – has a blue flag, giving peace of mind at all times.

And if you get bored in the hotel (hard to imagine, but you never know), then grab a bike and ride along the promenade to Rabac. With the whole family, of course.

Stylish all-inclusive hotel in Dalmatia with club feeling

A designer hotel with all-inclusive deals? Surely that can’t be possible? Oh yes, it is. At the Falkensteiner Club Funimation Borik. This hotel has recently renovated parts of its facilities so you can enjoy a stylish designer ambience. The inclusive services have also been expanded – with free bike rental, a midnight snack, fresh cocktails and the mini-bar service.

Only the sandy beach has not changed. It is still right in front of the hotel, a paradise for children and adults alike and the crystal-clear water is as seductive as ever with its shades of blue and green. Every day spent on the beach will be a great day.

All-inclusive holiday in Dalmatia for the adventurous

1/4

The Pine Beach resort in Pakoštane is proof positive that all-inclusive holidays in Croatia are anything but conservative. On the contrary. The reed-roofed bungalows for two to six people are located under shady pine trees, quite close to the beach.

Which adventure do you want to tackle first? Thrills on the climbing wall? Kayaking? Or is sailing or windsurfing more your thing? Over 20 sports are included in the price. Beginners can book a trainer for a surcharge.

The natural sandy beach at Pine Beach is one kilometre long and ideal for swimming and all kinds of water sports. The most fun, of course, is jumping into the water from the wooden pontoons or the cliffs of the rocky coast.
Enjoy karaoke or a comedy show in the amphitheatre in the evening and savour a last cocktail under the stars before you retire, like Tarzan and Jane, to your cosy cabin.
