About Galeb Hotel

The Galeb Hotel is a small, family hotel located in the very centre of the town, right next to the main beach in Opatija. It was completely renovated and reopened in 2000, the idea being to bring the quality of service and accommodation up to the highest levels and to make this hotel an ideal place for a holiday all the year round.

This hotel is available as part of any tailor made holiday with Rediscover the World.

Accommodation: the hotel has 5 luxury suites/apartments and 20 comfortable high-category rooms all appointed with furniture made out of cherry wood, air conditioning, satellite television, direct telephone lines, a mini-bar and a kitchen.

Facilities: there is an á la carte restaurant with an opulent selection of fish and meat dishes, the American Bar, with a first-rate supply of cocktails and other drinks, the Aperitif Bar. Outside, the hotel has its own parking lot.

NB. Only 50-meters from Hotel Galeb is situated Hotel Savoy, which is part of the same group . Guests are welcome to use additional facilities such as swimming pool, wellness, beach and also visit boutiques and souvenir shops along the promenade.

"Galeb Hotel - Opatija.  After a lovely drive through the countryside of Croatia, the rolling Tyrol style villages and pastures (we saw a lot of evidence of the war 20 years ago where many villages were still unoccupied or only just starting to come back to life - many derelict houses being slowly repaired) we saw the complete change in Coastline and much more like the Italian Riviera. Opatija was a nice town and our  hotel was very 'genteel', quite formal but we had a lovely room and enjoyed a stroll along the front to the next village looking for a restaurant as most of them seemed to be attached to other hotels or just bars. We found a great modern restaurant in Opatija behind the coast street callled Ruzmarin which we would highly recommend."

"We were upgraded to their 4 star sister hotel Savoy and glad we did. They had a bus load of Italian tourists in and had some serious plumbing problems. Breakfast good and we ate at A & D Grill on the waterfront at the harbour. Great food and cheap. The Savoy's adjacent restaurant was very pricey."

"We'd just like to thank you for such a well organised holiday you gave us and from which we have just come back from Croatia. The hotels were well chosen - plenty of variety - the routes were well thought out  - very scenic - and the local knowledge and research was evident everywhere."

"Received excellent service and advice from Andy and Dawn Scase at Rediscover the World on this trip. You may quote us! Any queries we made from Australia to Andy and Dawn in England were answered promptly and efficiently. Able to fit in an extra person at short notice. Trip advice on sites, hotels, detours etc resulted in a well paced and rewarding experience in Croatia."

"Thanks for great time. Excellent arrangements. Really impressed with how everything fell into place for us. To be met on time at the airport and to be met on time for our return trip. The car agent was where he was suppose to be and helpful, even when returning the car. One area for improvement is the maps that were given to us to locate our hotels. The maps off Google were not really very clear. The maps given to us at the hotels, after we checked in, were excellent. Maybe there could be a way for these maps to be sent or available at the airport. Other than that I must say I was very impressed with your organisation, right from the time I paid my deposit to my final payment. For those of you who haven't been to Croatia, now is the time. Thank you for a great holiday. Great organisation on your part. Keep it up. Will recommend you to all my friends."
