I love staying in Opatija because I can either
be pampered in five-star luxury hotel or hole up in a well-outfitted
apartment. The standard of accommodation is generally excellent and
no matter where you stay in Opatija, the sea isn't far away. Unlike
many Croatian resorts, Opatija isn't chock-a-block with new hotels.
It developed as a rest stop for 19th-century Austrians and many hotels
date from the period.
