From basic mountain huts to self-catering luxury villas, there are lots of accommodation types to choose from in Croatia. Though hotels abound in cities and popular tourist destinations, the majority of accommodation on offer is made up of tourist apartments, owned and often managed by locals.
Croatia also has a huge camping scene that caters to the large number of visitors who arrive by car from nearby European countries. In rural areas, you can find private villas that are ideal for families traveling with young children.
Adventure seekers and avid hikers also have the option to stay in Croatia’s network of mountain huts that serve as overnight shelters in often spectacular natural settings, which can be an experience in itself.
When it comes to nightly rates, these can also vary widely from budget to boutique. The cost of tourist accommodation has risen significantly in recent years and it can be a challenge to find good-value options during the peak tourist season of July and August. It's important to book accommodation in advance if you’re planning a summer vacation in Croatia – gone are the days when you could just show up without a reservation and easily find an available room.
