We stayed at the Istra Hotel in August and had a wonderful holiday. Our room at the Istra was very pleasant and we had a wonderful sea view! The food was quite good...better on some nights than others. Breakfast was lovely...plenty of choice to suit everyone's taste. The staff were always pleasant and helpful. We loved crossing from the hotel on to the mainland. We thought that Rovinj was beautiful and plenty of nice places to walk - also wonderful art and some nice shops. It reminded me so much of Venice. There were some stunning views. The park in Rovinj is also lovely and the walks fantastic. Plenty of places to cycle to as well. I would definately recommend the Istra Hotel and Croatia - wonderful place and wonderful sights. We will return soon.
