Just returned from 6 nights at this hotel. We stayed in room 528 which overlooked the pool and forest. The hotel was very clean. There was a reasonably priced mini bar and drinks at the lobby bar were also reasonably priced. There was lots of choice at both breakfast and evening meal. The pizza bar had pizzas that were cooked... More

Fantastic hotel with amazing staff. This hotel is perfect and the location is amazing. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff here. The food is good quality and tastes great. The pool is clean and a good size. The walk in to the town through the park is so pretty. It would be hard to find a complaint about... More

We went on a group tour and were very pleased with the hotel and its location. Very quiet area but only a short 15 minute walk into the town along a delightful coastal path. The hotel was modern, spotless and with a nice bar area and good outside seating with large umbrellas overlooking the well attended gardens and sea. We... More

Due to unforeseen circumstances we arrived too late for dinner but the hotel left an excellent cold meal for our arrival. The rooms were very clean and superbly furnished and ours was on the ground floor at the back with a lovely big... More

Pleasant hotel about an hour from Pula airport, there is a nice fifteen minute walk away from traffic, beautiful sea views and through woodland into the town of Porec. The path also used by cyclists and the regular road train for those not wanting to walk. The town of Porec consists of lovely cobbled streets with numerous places for coffee,... More

Well, what can we say. This is the first time to Croatia having been to Egypt for three years and then Norway. We avoided Croatia as it has been very expensive in the past, although it is now more reasonable. We originally booked via Thomson to stay at the Island Hotel, Fortuna, however, we were contacted and advised that the... More
