TravelPod Member ReviewsKastel Hotel Motovun
We stayed two nights in Motovun, the first at Villa Maria a private apartment that couldn't accommodate us for a second night. We moved to Kastel Hotel and were very happy. The staff is Great: friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable, breakfast buffet plentiful. We enjoyed a spa afternoon, which was a real treat as we were coming to the end of our six-week vacation.

Motovun you will see us back soon!

... Buddy, the dog, seemed to lead the way and if he got too far ahead, he would stop and wait for me. It was really cute! I wonder if he understood English??
A few hours later, I headed back to Sibenik on the bus, then immediately connected with a bus to Split. If we had arrived 2 minutes later, I would have missed it and have to wait another 45 minutes! Great day! Long day….time for ...
