For months we had been reading reviews of this hotel, its part of the build up. I would say our resulting expectations were just about spot on. The location is unique, it makes the holiday seem special on its own. The ferry service to Rovinj and back was excellent, always on time - you just have to make sure you... More

I have just returned from Rovinj and stayed in the Istra for 8 days. I felt that the staff were welcoming, helpful and very pleasant. I tried to learn a little Croatian and this went a long way with many members of staff. The room was exceptionally clean, the bathroom was functional, I had hot water all the time, I... More

If only this place had a sandy beach it would be absolutely perfect ! Clean hotel, with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in at an hotel. Food very good, but to have some variety I always like to eat out a few times when staying anywhere half-board - easy to catch the free ferry across to Rovinj... More

We came home yesterday after spending two weeks on this beautiful island and I already want to go back. The hotel lives up to it's 4 star rating and is comfortable and spotlessly clean. We found all of the staff to be absolutely charming and very friendly. The facilities are excellent - the pools were lovely, a wonderful spa and... More

We are actually still at hotel but thought I would write an interim review. Hotel itself is fantastic as others have noted...I'll come back and review properly at the end of the two weeks. No...what I would like to comment on is the restaurant. We have noticed there seem to be a number of people disguised as guests who have... More

Bit doubtful on booking as I thought this place sounded a bit like a holiday camp- not nowadays our "thing" as an elderly couple- but we loved everything about the holiday (possible exception was the extremely hot weather 1st week which ,even the locals found difficult, 10% above their summer average) However,we could'nt have been in a better place for...

This was just what the doctor ordered. Lovely hotel, friendly and helpful staff, fantastic weather and great food! The hotel was full but at no time seemed crowded. Would highly recommend. Boat to mainland every hour was reliable and hassle-free.

I have recently returned home from another visit to this hotel. I have spent one week there in both 2014 and 2015. It did not disappoint. The hotel is on an island but there is a free boat to take you to the main land to a town called rovinj which is a mini Venice!! Beautiful We were half board... More

Spent 11 nights at this hotel in June and really enjoyed the stay. No surprises as we layed eyes on the building from the ferry, reviews of concrete 70s style was spot on. Once inside, the hotel was lovely. Modern theme throughout and immaculately clean. Check in was quick and reception staff very pleasant. We paid for a sea view... More
