Stayed here for a week with my Mum in April, the weather was glorious and the grounds on which the hotel is set are beautiful, with stunning views. The hotel is set down under the main road, so isn't overlooked and feels very privat. The pool was good size and the beach was lovely and clean with a protective arm... More

I return twice yearly to this beautiful place. Over the years it has become a little old-fashioned, but to me that is part of its charm. The view from my room is breath-taking, and I can hear the sea all night. The staff are uniquely kind and the food much better than many 5 star hotels. I arrive and immediately... More

The Istron Bay Hotel, well, where do I start? The Hotel is barely visible from the main road and is at the end of a short driveway. First impressions were that its frontage didn't look very inspiring although clean and neat, but there is a reason for this. The Hotel is built into a steep incline and its beauty is... More

Good views. Great diving centre. All in all a good choice. The bedrooms are neither too small or large and are comfortable. The one we had had a balcony but I am not sure if they all had it. Staff are pleasant and the bay is beautiful. It's a great family destination.

We are repeat visitors to this hotel and have recently returned from our 11th (or thereabouts) visit after another wonderful holiday. We agree with the comments saying that this hotel doesn’t merit a general 5 star rating and would like to add the following thoughts: The location: 5 stars, providing you like plenty of peace and quiet amid stunning views....

Me and my husband stayed in this hotel for our honeymoon. It was amazing! We've been offered a better room than the one that we ordered, a compliment of bottle of wine and fruit and a fancy dinner as congratulations on our marriage. The service was excellent, the food was various and tasty, the room was decorated in Minoan Cretan... More

Beautiful hotel in old-fashioned greek style! There is a beautiful sea-view, nice staff working in hotel. A lot of German and French tourist. A very few russians - as a big plus! ) Lovely place, but not for everyone. I love it!

This older hotel is nestled right into the cliff side of a beautiful beach in Istron. We had an amazing view from our room with large terasse, bathtub, large comfy bed- everything we needed was here.. Dinner was fantastic and the service was excellent. Breakfast was also good. The beach is sandy-small stones, but the water is crystal clear. You... More

This is not the cool old-fashioned I'm talking about, but the experience you'll get in a hotel 20 years ago. We booked a Junior Suite which at first lived up to the expectations, but at a second glance had few problems, the most major of which was exposed electrical wires in the shower! The room was also eerily minimalistic in... More
