Campsites ‘Lanterna’ and ‘Zaton’ receive ADAC-s «Superplatz» Award

Campsites ‘Lanterna’ and ‘Zaton’ receive ADAC-s «Superplatz» Award
The German automobile club (ADAC - Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil Club), Europe's largest auto club with 17.2 million members, traditionally at the start of the year during the presentation of the annual editions of their own camps guide (ADAC Camping Caravaning Fuehrer) also awards prizes and awards to Europe's best campsites.

Croatian campsites, have once again achieved excellent results by the number of awards received by ADAC. The special award given by ADAC to the best quality campsites is the sign of ‘Superplatz’. This is the highest recognition of quality which is assigned to campsites that during evaluation received at least 4 out of 5 points, in all categories. As the highest recognition of ADAC, the award for 2011 was received by campsite Zaton in Nin near Zadar (the camp has received this flattering award for the fifth consecutive year) which this year also received special recognition by the Danish automobile club (FDM) for outstanding service and hospitality at the campsite.

Among only 7 new campsites that have received the ‘Superplatz’ grading in 2011there is also a Croatian campsite, ‘Lanterna’ in Tar, near Poreč, which got the grade for the very first time. The camp can accommodate nine thousand people and is fully equipped. ADAC ‘Superplatz’ was won by a total of 79 campsites in the competition of over 5500 European campsites, and the fact that among them are campsites Zaton and Lanterna is a great recognition for Croatian camping.

ADAC's second award for quality is called ‘Yellow Plate’. It is obtained by campsites which during ADAC’s inspection in the previous season achieved an ‘outstanding result’, i.e. a significant improvement and leaving a good impression. In 2011the ‘Yellow Plate’ was given to Lanterna and Solaris in Poreč, Kanegra, Stella Maris and Finida in Umag, Zaton in Zadar, Poljana on Mali Lošinj, Vir on Hvar, Nevio in Orebić and for the first time this year, Bijela Uvala in Poreč and Slatina on the island of Cres.

In the Camping Guide for 2011 published and assessed were a total of 104 Croatian camps, one more than last year. 27 camps were marked with a symbol that shows significant improvement in quality (compared to the year before), which is 8 camps more than the previous year.

The authors of the guide note that the success of Croatian campsites is not only due to the beautiful nature but also investments in quality and service. During their visits to campsites ADAC inspectors evaluate five areas by which they assess their quality: sanitary facilities, construction and equipment of the allotments communal supplies in the camp, facilities for leisure and entertainment and other programs. Each area is awarded a maximum of five stars or points.

In this year's ADAC guide great recognition was given to Dubrovnik, which was for the first time featured on the cover of the camp guide.
