About Le Meridien Lav, Split, Podstrana

Beachfront resort hotel with 2 pools southeast of Split town

In Podstrana

Le Meridien Lav, Split enjoys a prime coastal location beside a beach and a marina, and is in Podstrana, a 15-minute drive southeast from central Split. Split Airport is a 30-minute drive away, and it's a 15-minute drive to both the railway station and the ferry port.

On private beach

The hotel has a private beach, but if you can tear yourself away from the water, it's a 3-minute walk to the Grand Casino Lav. In Split's old town, a 15-minute drive away, you can wander the narrow lanes of Diocletian's Palace, today lined with characterful cafés.

4 restaurants and bars

You can plunge into the indoor pool or infinity outdoor pool, or try your hand at the climbing wall. For more relaxing pastimes, you can visit the spa, and enjoy Dalmatian specialties at Pivnica and Mediterranean cuisine at Spalatum, or sip drinks at the poolside bar.

Balconies and sea views

Each of the 381 brightly decorated guestrooms include access to free WiFi, as well as satellite TV with pay-movies, and all rooms are equipped with minibars and safes. All rooms have balconies, most of which have panoramic sea views, and bathrooms include bathrobes and slippers.

We love it , thank you

Le Meridien Lav, Split, Podstrana
horrible !!!
Very disappointed !! Lobby, pool area are great however the rooms are filthy! We had a suite overlooking the marina. The room was horrible; the mattress was so old and uncomfortable, the curtains were really stained, the carpet was dirty, the walls were all stained. I could not believe that our room actually looked like that. This hotel is a 5-star hotel?? When we walked in we were so excited to see how nice and clean everything was, but the room was a shocker. Sad we waisted our money here !

Meridien needs improvement
Hotel was located 15 minutes from city center of Split by car. Room was comfortable and bathroom was spacious but the rug was incredibly stained. So much so that we reported it. Slippers were needed. House keeping tried to clean it without success. No one bothered to check back with us. Italian restaurant in the marina was flat out bad. I would not recommend it. We were seated at a table with dirty dishes, what we ordered did not correspond with the menu description (they where probably out of certain ingrediences and did not bother to tell us), service was extremely slow. I would recommend on the other hand the fish restaurant next door that is not part of the Meridien group. Food and service was excellent. The breakfast buffet at the Meridien was excellent but the service lacking to say the least. The four Palms at the beach operating in the evening was excellent with outstanding service. Beach was pebbly and it was extremely difficult to enter the water. You need water shoes, it's a must have.
