Bad pool area
Very nice hotel. Great rooms. Only disappointment was the pool. No pool staff so all other guests left towels at the pool beds at 8 in the morning and did not use the bed before in the afternoon. This was against hotel rules but no staff did anything. Because of that we could not get any pool beds - one day there were only 3 people at the pool and no space for us…

An Average Place
We had booked an ocean view family suite and while yes, it is a view of the ocean, you look out over a cluttered view of their restaurant roof-top. A family suite is essentially 2 separate hotel rooms with two doors and locks but with a single door beyond those two. A buffet breakfast is included in the stay but when we went down for breakfast, almost all tables in the restaurant were reserved for people on bus tours. Even though those tables were empty, we had to wait a long time for one of the few tables that wasn't reserved to free up. The beach is rocky so take beach shoes if you go. There is a walkway to other beaches that aren't so rocky so that is an option. The outdoor pool area is nice. For the indoor pool, you must make a reservation in advance in order to use it. Overall, the resort is average. There is nothing particularly outstanding, nor awful. It's just an okay place to stay.

Top resort in Malinska
We had a great experience in Blue waves resort. Its not a huge and crowded one, but just right to relax either by the pool or on the beach. Everyone is really friendly, rooms are clean and spacious, food is great. First couple of days the lunch food selection was a bit limited, but after we pointed it out, there was a brand new menu printed already the next day. Great work. We really loved it and we will be back. I can recomend it to everyone.

The food was subpar and a few of the servers were very unsure of their role/job. But overall clean and good location.

8/10 Very good

The staff was very friendly and helpful through out our stay. The hotel room was large and clean, however, i do not recommend staying in the bottom floor. On the last night, it stormed heavily and our room flooded while we were out. Fortunately, majority of our stuff was situated on the tables or chairs. When we approached the front desk, they quickly switched our rooms. Overall, it was a nice hotel and we would stay there if we go back to Croatia(as long as they put us in a higher room!)

Family Resort
We enjoyed our time at the resort. The play area near the pool was great. However, the kids club was a little disappointing as it was located in the hotel bar on cool or rainy days.
