We spent two weeks here in July 2014. This is our third time in four years at this hotel. When booking we were concerned that it may not live up to our expectations and considerd another part of Croatia but we loved this island so much on our other two occassions that we couldn't imagine going anywhere else, so booked...

We stayed as a couple For one week 8-15 July. Our room was perfectly clean a little on the small side (bathroom) but not a major problem to us. The overall opinion we had was of an extremely well run hotel very clean and the food choices were excellent. Whilst we stayed the weather was a touch unpredictable and we... More

We stayed at the Hotel Istra for a week, having booked through Thomsons. Although not much to look at from the outside, the hotel is very comfortable and well equipped, and we particularly liked the grounds and the opportunity to stroll through the pine woods on this small island. Plenty of sunbeds at any time of day, the option to... More

Crowded place, unfrindly service. Went to Lavanda, it is more like a joke. Bed, unpleasant private boat service to and from the island. Very nervous ceptain made me feel sick. The only thing-good view. Also good tennis court and profesional service there.

The scenery is beautiful, the facilities for kids are perfect whatever the weather, the food is surprisingly good to be honest (we went half board for 3 nights) the staff is in general really nice and helpful - just beware of the more inexperienced staff who don't speak well English and can be a bit frustrating

Just back from a week at this fantastic hotel in a wonderful setting. The island is stunning, clear blue sea, friendly staff and great food (plus free wine or beer with your evening meal). Never tired of the boat ride back and forth into Rovinj, in fact it made it feel an even more special place. Amazing sunsets from the... More

Stunning place, friendly staff, beautiful sea, excellent value for money. My wife wants me to inform the ladies to bring their own hair dryer. Whilst there is one, the cable is short and not powerful.

Dear Ersantemiz, Wow! Thank you so much for being our guest and for sharing such a fantastic review!

We hope that you will visit us soon again Thank you once again Warm wishes from Island Hotel Istra team More

We recently returned from our third stay at Island Hotel Istra, and as always had a really lovely holiday. The only criticism I can make is that the service in the bars and also the Taverna restaurant was a little slow compared to on our previous visits, other than that absolutely perfect. If you like a relaxing holiday than this... More

Our family of 2 adults and two children have just returned from a week at this wonderful hotel. We had a family 'suite' which was basically 2 interconnecting rooms(room nr. 374.1 and 374.2). The view from these rooms was fantastic-partial sea view, and facing the old chapel). Everything was excellent; friendly staff, immaculate rooms and standard of cleanliness, amazing breakfast...
