Makarska, Croatia is one of the most famous tourist destinations on the Adriatic. It is located in the foothills of Biokovo Mountain (1762 m), which protects it from the harsh continental climate.

Accommodation options in Makarska

The selection of holiday houses, villas and apartments is huge. With so many homes to rent, my recommendation is to check out as many testimonials as possible prior to making a decision to book one. If you spot that in some residences air conditioner is frequently reported faulty, the chance it is damaged intentionally is big. One word: steer clear of. Go slowly and select carefully. You have the chance to find a good holiday house or apartment with the great setting and a pleasant host. You just have to analyze the market properly. In addition to villas, houses and apartments for rent, there are huge hotels and resorts and smaller sized family-run hotels. Big hotel company in the town is still state owned. You'll most likely be better off at the little family-run hotel.
