“Beautiful Town, lovely hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We have recently returned from the Eden Hotel, this is a lovely, clean friendly hotel which I throughly recommend. The staff are friendly and helpful, the hotel is clean, comfortable and situated in lovely surroundings. If I could fault the hotel at all, it would be that the meals did become a bit repeatitive after a while, however we found some gorgeous restaurants in the town, which were worth visiting. The hotel is about a 15 min walk from the hotel,along the coast and harbour.

Very nice hotel in superb position next to a forested nature reserve & leisurely stroll along the shoreline to the lovely old town of Rovinj. Staff very hard working & friendly especially Nedan one of the animators whose guided walks in the forest, guided free trip to offshore Red Island, archery, rifle shooting & boules tuition made our holiday. His 'comedy role' in Mama Mia was a gem!! Extensive grounds to hotel, masses of sunbeds, nice indoor pool & small jacuzzi. The huge outdoor pool is being rebuilt for 2013 & by all accounts will be a stunning 3 pool area (the existing pool is the largest I have ever seen). Lots to do here. Nice gym, nice Spa (but I didn't get time to try it), table tennis, tennis courts over the road, rent Segways or bikes. Distinct lack of lunchtime fare at the hotel itself - only cheese/ham toasties or cheese/ham roll & a few pastries on offer. You could get a hamburger at the cafe in the forest but that was a fair walk away & the cafe by the outdoor pool only did main meals at lunchtime. There are a couple of small supermarkets about 8 mins walk away but they didn't have much in the way of snacks. You certainly won't go hungry in the main buffet style restaurant & although there was a good choice of food for all courses the food was never that hot & somehow lukewarm roast beef & gravy doesn't have much appeal. I have never been a fan of 'hot' buffet food & I know that continentals do not like their food too hot but I & the three others in my party found this aspect rather disappointing. It was the end of season so maybe there were staffing problems which caused this. The cooked to order omelettes & fried eggs at breakfast were the best hot choice but the very fatty bacon was not to our liking. You don't get any coffee after dinner unless you purchase it from the bar. The rooms were very nice with flat screen TV, minibar, very comfy beds with duvets, phone, sofa & two chairs plus table, balcony table & two chairs. Quiet air con. Nice bathroom BUT the bath is very deep & the shower is in the bath so you had to be very careful getting in & out & there was nothing to hold onto. We heard that some people had managed to get a step to help them & there maybe other rooms that have lower baths/showers. I would email the hotel if you have mobility difficulties. Everything in and around the hotel is spotlessly clean. Our rep Shirley from Thomson Holidays was superb. Overall we had a splendid relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the outdoor pool can be noisy if there is a late night show & you want to slee...

This was our first visit to Croatia. The hotel and its location exceeded our expectations. Like other Tripadvisor reviewers you will not be disappointed. The hotel food was excellent. The staff were very friendly. The setting was perfect for relaxing or strolling in the adjacent park or a short walk to Rovinj. We stayed for a week half board from 25th September 2012 so the weather was not too hot. Temperatures during the day were about 24 degrees and sitting outside at night was comfortable. However if you like to swim brace yourself for a cool dip in the pools.

Enjoyed a relaxing week here at the beginning of September. Had room 111 overlooking the pool area and had great view, afternoon sun and no problem with any noise. Great location next to the nature reserve and stroll into the town along the front. Food in the hotel was excellent and all in all a great value holiday. Rovinj is a lovely lace and would recommend this hotel and the town to anyone. Coupled with a day trip to Venice (it doesn't have to be expensive if you don't want) it adds to a perfect combination of seeing new things and also enjoying a relaxing time away from work in the sun.

Great hotel in a fantastic location.
This was our second visit having been recommended to the area and hotel by my sister in law.
We stayed in the same room both years by choice, it was at the front of the hotel over looking the car park and was very quiet. We found all the staff very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
The food was of a high standard with a good choice of main dishes with as much as you could eat.The buffet breakfast had a vast choice of cereals,fruits,meats and eggs, bacon etc (eggs freshly cooked as you wait)
There was ample sun beds around the swimming pool and garden areas with lots of areas to sit without being on top of each other.The entertainment staff worked very hard with their production of Mama Mia.
We look forward to our next visit in 2013.

Room Tip: We found the rooms on the front of the hotel overlooking the car park to be nice and quiet

Pool is so cold it takes your breathe away - but fabulous once you've braved it. It's a good size and deep enough for tall people.
Food = great. Breakfast has a vast choice: cereals; yogurt; fresh & tinned fruit; all the cold meats & cheese plus salady things and several types of bread and all the cooked stuff you'd expect (carrots/cauliflower/green beans were a surprise), oh and little biscuits and croissants and toast and jams and tea/coffee/juice etc.
Dinner had salad starters plus 2 soups then at least 3 meats & 2 fish dishes with various vegetables in different ways, only criticism is it wasn't always hot enough. Then there was cake...
Hotel location = perfect, fantastic view of the harbour and the old town, maybe 5~10 minute walk in to the main area (walk off all that food) or if you went in the opposite direction you could walk through the woods and along the shore line.
Room = good, so it had an irritating shower curtain instead of a screen, but if that's my biggest complaint can't be bad.
Staff were friendly & helpful.

This was our third stay at the Eden, this time we went with our daughter, son-in-law and grandson. The hotel is situated in its own bay and natural woodland area which due to the many paths and tracks is very popular with walkers, cyclists and joggers.

The grounds of the hotel go right to the waters edge and incorporate a large grassy area for sunbathing, a restaurant, a large circular pool and a smaller pool for the younger children. The food is good and the rooms are comfortable and clean, also the staff are very pleasant.

The town of Rovinj is a good 25 minute walk from the hotel via the harbour but a shorter way is to take the road from the front of the hotel. Rovinj itself has many old and narrow streets which are great to explore, plus there are restaurants and bars wherever you go. A great place to sit, relax and watch the world go by.

Room Tip: We like to have a room at the back which overlooks the pools. A front facing room will overlook the...
