The hotel is beautiful with stunning views and large family rooms. You get to spend your holiday on your own island and the island is so pretty. It's only a 3 minute boat ride away, the boat is always on time and is very cute, from the main island and there are lots of lovely shops and amazing restaurants. In... More

It's located on a small island just opposite the harbour of Porec. The only way to get to the island is by a small ferry but that price is included at your stay. When you're at the island you have it all by yourself with it's beaches and nice paths to stroll around at. There's also the pool to enjoy... More

Although the hotel is a little dated and has tired decor in places, it is clear it is undergoing renovation. Despite this we had a wonderful stay-staff are very kind and helpful, food choices are excellent and room was comfortable and clean. Boat across was no problem- regular times and rarely late, beautiful views on the way. All in all... More

This summer my husband and I stayed at the Fortuna hotel on our honeymoon. The location of the hotel is delightful being situated on an island a few minutes ferry ride across from Porec on the mainland. The experience of having the feel of an exclusive getaway whilst being easily connected to the main town and surrounding area was quirky... More

We arrived and loved the beautiful location straight away. The very frequent little ferry and the service all round was superb, including our reps.
