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.

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
