Stayed here for 10 nights in early July with my husband and two teenage sons. Very excited to get the ferry across to the island which was beautiful on first sighting. Checked into our rooms, but have to say were extremely disappointed. I had emailed the hotel prior to our stay to let them know that one room was for... More

Beautifully clean, the most helpful and friendly staff, a heavenly setting and the food was very very good for a buffet, ie half board arrangement. The only criticism is that the restaurant is very brightly lit, ie no ambience and waiter stations tended to clatter cutlery which spoilt what otherwise is such a superb hotel. I stayed at Hotel Croatia... More

This hotel is really good,very clean and modern. It is in a fantastic location and it is fun arriving by boat, however the boat service is a bit hit and miss on the timing as it's supposed to be at two places at the same time, also it should run more frequently than hourly, should be half hourly. The food... More

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
