“Fantastic Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

This is a fantastic hotel. The staff are excellent/very helpful. The food is great and the location is superb. A short stroll into Rovinj one way or for biking along the beautiful coastline the other way.
Inside the hotel is spotless and the rooms are a great all looking out to the beautiful sea.

A great place

Room Tip: All rooms have a great view - the higher the room the better the view

My wife and I stayed at the Monte Mullini in June .Wow what a great hotel. Superb rooms , fantastic food , unbelievable breakfast, first class staff and beautiful Rovinj. The missing 1% was for limited clothes storage space but this is insignificant compared to all the pluses here. I could talk for hours about this wonderful hotel, take my word for it go here!

Dear Guest,

We are truly honored by your comments and by your recognition. We are delighted to hear that you spent great time with us. Did you also notice double access to the wardrobe which we provide in all our accommodations as a little inner secret?

We hope your future travel plans will include a return stay at Monte Mulini hotel.

The hotel is very good, but with just a few tweaks it could be excellent.

The wifi could be better.

The continuous reserving of sun beds should be policed.

The sun beds on the grassed areas should be upgraded to the same standard as the pool area.

The poolside menu needs to have it's choices increased with some healthier options for lunch.

This was our second visit, as the area the hotel is in couldn't be better, and has everything someone would need in a holiday destination.

To see the issues being brought up are the same as our visit last year is a disappointment, as this suggests the hotel is not really listening to it's guests.

Room Tip: If you able to afford a room on the top floor the views are fantastic, or if you are lucky to be upg...

We just finished our holiday and were impressed with this Hotel. Our 1st time in Croatia meant we were a bit wary but have nothing but praise for Rovinj and the Hotel. Great free perks included bikes which let us explore the nearby Parks and a boat trip around the islands. Breakfast is a great 5 star experience, staff very helpful and friendly, Restaurants are very good with a nice variety, rooms very clean and luxurious, and so no issues whatsoever! The Pool has enough Sun cover and sunbeds.

Dear Guest,

It’s so great to hear that you chose our hotel and town of Rovinj for your first visit to Croatia. Thank you pointing out the possibility of exploring of the picturesque Lone bay surrounded by protected “Zlatni rt” park forest by oor bikes. For the next 2014 season we are planning to arrange the beach in front of the hotel zone in addition to the poolside and open nice bar there as well.

Hope to see you and your family soon
Once again, thank you,

Sincerely,

The hotel is good - modern and clean. And in a lovely setting. The old town of Rovinj is a jewel and still largely unspoiled by mass tourism. It is very easy to get to from Pula airport (the hotel sent a car to meet us). The hotel is efficient, clean and has excellent staff and gets very close to being excellent.

This is a wonderful, wonderful hotel! We booked a standard room on the ground floor and was delighted to be upgraded to the second floor, with a fantastic view of Lone Bay from the balcony of our room (many thanks to the hotel management - we really appreciated the upgrade!).

The entire hotel (bedrooms, bathrooms, restaurants and other public areas) is beautifully designed in a modern style, with high quality furnishings. Despite being fully occupied, the hotel did not feel crowded at all. The outdoor pool area is lovely, with sunbeds placed all around the pool and hotel lawn overlooking the bay. Huge umbrellas provided shade for those of us who do not necessarily enjoy lying continuously under the sun.

The hotel has a small, intimate spa, providing all the usual treatments. The after-treatment room is quiet and tranquil - I spent quite a lot of time here reading my novels after a relaxing massage. Thank you to Paola, Masha and Koryalka (sorry - I don't remember the spelling) for looking after me so well.

Monte Mulini hotel guests are allowed access to the facilities at the next door Lone Hotel. There is a relatively well-equiped gym and an indoor swimming pool there, both of which I put to good use.

I especially enjoyed running in the national park located right next to the hotel, every morning before breakfast. The breakfast buffet at the Mediterraneo Restaurant is perhaps not the very best, but definitely more than adequate with a large choice of juices, cereals, pastries/muffins and a selection of cooked items freshly prepared upon demand.

My husband and I enjoyed two wonderful meals at the Wine Vault Restaurant. The dishes were creative, well-executed and above all, absolutely delicious! We were attended to by extremely professional staff - Ivica and Danijel both deserve special mention here. On our second visit (the last night of our holiday) we were entertained by gentle live music that provided just the right ambience for a perfect evening. The restaurant had arranged some lounge armchairs and sofas just beyond the dining tables on that occasion - what a great way to enjoy after-dinner drinks - this was a fitting end to a truly memorable holiday!
