I was looking forward to staying at Hotel Istra as it occupies its own island which is beautiful. We normally stay in 5 star accommodation but really wanted this location so thought 4 star wouldn't be much different. How wrong we were, on arrival first impressions were that the hotel building was very ugly and resembled the architecture of the... More

Fantastic hotel built on a island.Well trained staff,so polite and friendly,wonderful scenery,great food.Free boat service to Rovinj .Hate to recommend because i may not get booked there if its full up.But Croatia has many similar hotels and is the place to visit with the euro so high.

Visited the Hotel Istra in September. Stunning setting, never been to Croatia before, but will definitly return. The hotel is on it's own beautiful Island, just 15 mins from the mainland. The staff are wonderful, the hotel is lovely and the facilities are great. The food was lovely, and we were never short of choice, in fact there was too... More

We were "bumped" up to this hotel as part of a tour group that were to stay elsewhere. What a lovely surprise! The island is beautiful and the grounds are lovely. As it was low season (I think) and not full, we were given suites, which were a welcome change from the small rooms previously had on our tour. The... More

Visited the Hotel Istra In September for a weeks holiday. This was our first ever holiday in Croatia and it did not disappoint. The holiday started with a great flight with Thomsons from Manchester to Pula - 2 hours and 10 minutes followed by a 45 minutes coach transfer to Rovinj. We arrived in Rovinj which was stunning. The coach... More

After a week in this hotel we felt rested and happy. We paid extra at booking for a sea view, having been caught out before with Thomsons and there were a lot of rooms on the ground floor or tucked away so that was worth the extra £80). So, had a room on the north side, with a lovely view,... More

My wife and I, plus two friends, stayed there in September 2014 for a week. The rooms are fairly spacious and all have balconies, though you have to pay... More

We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of Sept/ early Oct. It is fairly new with all the amenities one could want. The surroundings and nature are beautiful, waters clean and the boat services reliable. Staff were friendly and helpful. We had booked dinners and the buffet spread was excellent and quickly refilled. There was even wine and... More
