Spent an amazing two weeks at MaMaLu last summer! The rooms are simple and clean with a great view. I would recommend anybody looking for a quiet and comfortable place to stay to check out this gem. The family/staff were also just great and helped out when my girlfriend got sick. But the best thing about MaMaLu still has to... More

Mamalu has its open fire grill directly outside at the promenade, so you will be watching your Fish/Scampi/Calamari being prepared. I had grilled Calamari ("ligne na žaru") there twice and they were amongst the most delicious I've ever had. I can also recommend Mussels ("Dagne") as an entree, they're prepared with loads of garlic, absolutely fantastic, and you'll discover some... More

The beachfront rooms are overlooking the outdoor tables of the restaurant and the main street. For someone noisy for others charming .The rooms are equipped with air conditioning. Breakfast was basic and... More

We stayed at MaMaLu for our short vacation in Valun, a lovely town on Cres. Our room with the terrace was super clean and I loved the double bed, which really was double, unlike double beds in many hotels. The furniture was nice and everything looked really well-preserved or new. There was an air freshener in the bathroom that automatically... More

During our two-week stay on the island, when eating out, we usually chose fish and everything we got there was delicious but MaMaLu was outstanding. Fresh fish from the charcoal just makes the difference. Also highly recommended: the homemade salted anchovis, a reason to go back there! Excellent "old school" service and the only place where we got fish knives... More
