Stayed in the appartments 15th to 22nd September with my wife, daughter and daughter's boyfriend. We arrived just after the conclusion of the Unknown Music festival so there were hundreds of festival goers checking out. As we were early (about 13:00pm) we could not check in as this was from 15:00 pm onwards so we decided to leave our bags at Reception and head off to the restaurant for some lunch. This proved more difficult than we thought, the buffet type lunch was not available because that side of the restaurant hand just closed, when we went into the a la carte restaurant and tried to order a drink and food we were told that we had to join a queue of people who were paying at a till at the end of the bar. By this time I was p*****d off said something like this is b****cks and stormed out of the restaurant followed by the other members of my party. We then caught the shuttle bus into Rovinj and had pizzas and drinks, by which time I had calmed down!! We returned to Amarin by taxi and checked in. The appartments were well equipped and clean so I was now warming to the place even though there was quite a lot of debris and rubbish strewn around the complex due to the music festival, pretty much like festivals the world over really. However after a few days the clean up teams had done a remarkable job in transforming the place and we were just unlucky in that we chose to stay the week after the festival. It is unfair to judge on the basis of what we encountered and I am sure that under normal circumstances it would be a very nice place to stay, once things had been tidied up and the remnants of the festival had disappeared it was a very enjoyable holiday. We did not eat in the a la carte restaurant until the Friday night as we had hired a car for 3 days and ate in Rovinj or our appartments. The meal we had was terrible and the service was not very good either and it was poor value for money compared to meals we had in Rovinj. We didn't pay a lot for the holiday about £1100 for 4 including flights and transfers so we cannot really complain too much. We had a problem with the wash hand basin plug mechanism which I reported to Reception, I was told that someone would attend straight away and within 10 minutes of reporting the fault the maintenance engineer came to the appartment and repaired the mechanism so that service was excellent!! We would return, but obviously at a different time than our recent stay, most likely June/July.
