This hotel is quite spectacular, it's situated on its own island reached by it own ferry from the mainland, this boat runs all day every day so evenings out in Porec present no problems. The food is extremely good, the down side is the mealtime bun fight as there is no table service but you get used to this, however... More

Stayed for only one night but it was enough for this lovely new resort. You can park your car at their private parking lot, take a shuttle service to the peer and then boat taxi (5 min drive) to the island. Good thing is that only hotel guests are on the island and you really feel like on a private... More

Great place, great people, just a little crowded with young children when we stayed, could do with an adults only area, very clean and modern, staff very helpful plenty of things to do on and off the island, would go back but when the children are in school.

We visited the Island twice before the refurbishment and loved every second but it was dated. That didn't detract from its appeal. We knew about the changes and were keen to see how it had changed, hopefully not losing its charm. 8th Sept 2015 on the ferry to the island....first impressions....good. Room 310 at the front of the hotel overlooking... More
