I've stayed in this hotel a year ago in Pismo Beach, CA - http://www.cliffsresort.com/photo_gallery/ - Can definitely recommend this place - didn't pay that much either - like 120 USD for 2 incl breakfast.

Did Croatia for the last hol - Dubrovnik's nice, expensive and the food can be excellent although like most places there's shit too. there is one strip/alley way that has some great restaurants. If you go, stay a couple of days in Dubrovnik and head to the islands. If you've got time go to Mostar, we swerved there on a rec from someone on here, def the most int place we went to. There are a few small places around Dubrovnik that you can go swimming but close to the city is only a small swimming cove/beach that the locals use.

If you want beach then go to the rat at Brac (pronounced Brach) - stone spit of a beach with quite steep sides, perfect for sunbathing, deep, crystal clear warm water and the town and hotels are really nice. I wish we had stayed there a few more days. More family there though due to the beach but it's still a pretty cool place to hang out around the harbour with some great food.

We did Dubrovnik, Mostar, Hvar, Milna, Brac & Split. Hvar is very cool, loads of millionaires and their boats, lots of lovely looking people but got bored of the town really quickly (no beaches) and went to Milna for a few days. The best bit about Hvar imo are the islands around it which you will need a to hire a boat for (palmizana etc), we found a great place with bars and restaurants and had the best seafood on the entire hol. All worth visiting, it's a beautiful place but expensive.

Never stayed here (have eaten) but always thought it looked really nice, short walk from most things in the city and near a tube.
