The former Sršen Apartments in Soline are now a three-star boarding house, the prime location overlooking both the sea and lake at the heart of the National Park the prime attraction here. The Sršen family also runs the adjoining restaurant and can arrange bike hire and even night fishing. Rates are cheap, even in high season, though you’ll have to pay the 100kn admission to the National Park to reach the place. Breakfast and lunch are extra. There’s a pebble beach alongside and free parking if needed.
There are plenty of places to stay on Mljet island. Hotels and accommodation range from the modest, family-run type (Apartmaji Mljet Soline is a cosy boarding house) to those laced with luxury, such as the stylish Boutique Pine Tree Apartments.
