Great Deals on New Hotels in Croatia

The summer scramble is on as Croatia’s hospitality sector puts the finishing touches on this year’s new hotels, hostels, guesthouses and campgrounds. For a visitor that means good deals are to be had. New hotels are apt to lowball their prices to gain a following and stellar reviews. Renovated hotels stuck with mediocre reviews from last year will also be underpriced until the reviews catch up with the quality. For great prices check out the following accommodation possibilities.
