This island hotel is a wonderful getaway with the best all you can eat buffet food I've ever had. I couldn't believe that it was an all you can eat because it was of gourmet quality, fresh seafood, fruits desserts and sparkling red or white wine. The rooms were also comfortable and clean. There is a spa, a little gift... More

Although, we were not happy with the room on arrival as we were given a room with a view of a... More

Just returned from a fantastic week's stay. The 15 minute ferry journey was always a treat and always on time. Didn't see any, but there are dolphins about! Hotel itself was great, especially as we seemed to have got a better room than expected after reading some reviews great views of the pools and crystal clear sea beyond. Location and... More

We arrived by hire car to the ferry port and we were met by lack of information and a rather rude woman ordering us around. We were told to "put the car there" and wait for the shuttle bus, I had to follow the bus to a car park and then I was brought back to the ferry. I had... More

An 11 night holiday at Hotel Istra on the small traffic free island of St Andrews just off Rovinj in Northern Croatia was restful enjoyable and very good value. Buffet meals were always plentiful in terms of selection and quality. The wine & beer on tap throughout the meal an added bonus, but beer at the Captains Club overlooking the... More
