Time Out says
Cres island’s nicest hotel, the small four-star Golden Lion, is set above the bay of Martinšćica, a tiny seaside village that boasts a fine gravel beach. The hotel offers five larger suites, 25 doubles with air-conditioning and showers, and a wellness centre. The pricier rooms have their own balconies and sea views. The restaurant, serving seafood, lamb and brick-oven pizza, is handy in this small settlement with limited amenities. There’s also a bar. All in all, nothing too fancy, but all the basic comforts in a secluded seaside paradise.
