If your list of holiday must-haves includes sun, sea and sights, you’ll be onto a winner in Croatia. The country packs in impressive ruins, postcard-pretty national parks and buzzing cities, so there’s plenty to see – if you can drag yourself away from chilling out on the sand, that is.
Croatia’s not really known for its All Inclusive resorts and total switch-off getaways – most of the hotels around are bed and breakfasts – but we’ve picked out some hidden gems in the country’s accommodation list. Here are five of our favourite All Inclusive hotels in Croatia.

Best for R&R – Gava Waterman Forest Cottages, Split
Looking for a pin-drop-peaceful spot for your next holiday? Say no more. The Gava Waterman Forest Cottages offer a much-needed secluded getaway. The cottages are paired with a private beach and come with a forest-filled backdrop. The natural vibe doesn’t stop at the surroundings, either. Tucked between the trees, the wood cottages are unexpectedly modern, with Scandi-style furniture and flatscreen TVs. For some extra R&R, book into the spa for some head-to-toe pampering – treat yourself to a massage before hopping between the sauna and steam room.

Best for families – TUI SUNEO Supetar, Brac Island
TUI SUNEO Supetar is part of a huge holiday centre on Brac Island, so you’ll have access to a whole chunk of the complex while you’re visiting. This family favourite has been refurbished in the last few years, so all the holiday must-haves are present and correct. The buffet restaurant features flavours from all around the world and there’s an à la carte restaurant serving rustic Croatian food. Water wise, there’s a big pool plus a pebbly beach just down the road, and the chance to try out watersports and activities throughout the complex.

Best for water babies – Bluesun Alga, Tucepi
Water fans, listen up. The mountain-backed Bluesun Alga hotel comes up trumps when it comes to swimming spots. You’ve got three pools to pick from – the main outdoor pool is saltwater – and there’s a whirlpool on hand if you fancy chilling out in the bubbles. Plus, the hotel’s just across the promenade from the best beach on the Makarska Riviera – a pebbly spot that sprawls along the coast for four kilometres. Watersports fans can go diving or waterskiing, plus pedal boats and jet-skis are up for rent, too.
Make a splash at the Bluesun Alga.
Best for privacy – Senses Resort Hotel, Hvar
Want to really get away from it all? The Senses Resort Hotel is as secluded as it gets, sitting on the edge of an Instagrammable bay with just a pebble beach for company. Relax around the pool or drink cocktails on the seafront terrace and take in the views of the surrounding trees. As well as the buffet, you’ve got two à la cartes on site, including Italian dining at Trattoria and international cuisine at the sea-view Soline restaurant. The nearest town, Vrboska, is a five-minute drive away and home to a collection of cute, canal-crossing bridges – Croatia’s own Little Venice.
Escape it all at Senses Resort Hotel.
