“Exceeded our expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Clearly this hotel gets very good and consistent reviews ... which is why we decided to push the boat out a little and have the last four days of our 2.5 week Croatian holiday here ... and a great decision it was too! We had plans to use Rovinj as a base to explore islands and Istrian hill towns ... but we simply couldn't drag ourselves away from the hotel, it's grounds, and the fantastic new Mulini Beach area they've just created ... really well designed and a great stylish beach bar with a variety of loungers and bean bags to chill on (in the heat!) ... the imported pebble beach is really attractive and the water in the beautiful tree fringed bay is wonderful to swim in. It's hard to fault the place. The ten - fifteen minute walk into Rovinj town is just right and the choice of great eating places in the old town is such that you'd really need to eat at the hotel at all ... unless you really are intent on spoiling yourselves. If you want a cheaper option for a lunch than the Mulini Beach Bar offers ... walk the short distance to the Hotel Lone (it's sister hotel) ... here a shady lunch near the sea is better value. Having said that the sandwiches at Mulini Beach are very nice indeed ... and the house white wine (a Croatian Sauvignon from the Pilato estate is excellent!). We make it a point never to go back to somewhere, even if we've really enjoyed in ... however in Monte Mulini's case I think we may make an exception.

Room Tip: We had a Premier room on the ground floor (number 019) ... this is probably the lowest grade of room...

We arrived at 9.30 pm. by ferry from Venice and was collected by taxi all arranged by the concierge of Hotel Monte Mulini. We were welcomed by very friendly and helpful staff and escorted to a very comfortable and large room with a lovely veranda and views of pool, gardens and bay. We enjoyed dinner in their Restaurant Mediterraneo on the same evening and although we arrived late they made us feel very welcome with great service and food. They also served breakfast on the patio of Restaurant Mediterraneo with a great view and a wonderful continental & warm selection The new beach with outdoor bar is just a stroll away with a wonderful deck to relax on and the Old Town Square is a comfortable walk away and great way to experience the old town of Rovinj. The hotel's concierge also arranged tours and transfers for us to visit the Istria region to do Olive, Wine as well as Truffle tasting which was superb with lots of food and wine and a great guide. We also visited the Brijuni National Park by ferry as well as the Pula Amphitheatre which was truly a sight to see. On our last night we enjoyed a five course with wine matching dinner in the Hotel's Wine Vault restaurant and can only rave about one of the best chef's in Croatia. Thank you Hotel Monte Mulini for making our stay in Rovinj absolutely awesome!

Room Tip: All rooms have views of bay.

Dear Guest,

We are truly honored by your comments and by your recognition.

We are very grateful that you appreciated the work of our Concierge service. Our Alisa & Iva are true professionals and genuinely committed to create for every guest a memorable experience and delight.

As you mentioned there are really many possibilities for trips and sightseeing for instance to the little towns on both coasts (as we're in peninsula) mainly with Roman heritage or going to beautiful inland always compared with the Toscany with the great possibilities of olive oil, wine and truffle tastings.

It is great to learn that one of the best experiences was at our fine dining restaurant Wine Vault.

We hope to have soon the pleasure of welcoming you back for new, precious moments


Best wishes,

My husband and I stayed here after weeks of persuading him that we would not be disturbed by other guests as in previous hotels!From the outset the hotel was faultless. The staff are genuinely friendly and really want you to be happy there. Rooms are spacious and soundproofed, lovely comfy bed.
The whole place is immaculately clean with obvious attention to detail.
Pool area is beautiful.With the recent addition of the Mulini Beach,there are plenty of sun beds available all day, we stayed in July and had no problems although some people did get up early to reserve them!

The pool bar is lovely with excellent friendly staff,food is good if a little pricey.
Our meal at the Mediterraneo restaurant was fantastic,but probably was too expensive to eat here every day.Breakfast was the best we have enjoyed anywhere.

The facilities at the hotel include free bikes for guest use which we found really useful for making the most of the beautiful surrounding areas and for getting into town, although this was a lovely easy stroll along the promenade.
We can't wait to return again next time our batteries need recharging!!

Room Tip: All rooms face the sea but rooms on floor 2 and 3 have uninterrupted views.

Dear Guests,

We are truly honored by your fabolous comment.

Situated in a beautiful and quiet location, but close to the town as well, Monte Mulini is the perfect starting point for sightseeing, a wine trail tour or endless enjoyment in the sun and sea and outdoor activities.

Thank you for your appreciation not only the breakfast choice, but for the service in general as well.

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

Kind Regards,

Lovorka Androšić,EAM

We visited Monte Mullini for our honeymoon and from walking in the front doors we were very impressed. There is a magnificent view across the bay from all areas of the hotel and the staff couldn't do enough for you. The bathroom was permanently topped up with an array of Molton Brown products and we had a lovely large balcony. All areas, particularly the spa and outdoor pool spaces, were pristine and I can't name a single fault. We were quite sad to leave this gorgeous town and hotel and we vowed to return one day.

This hotel was just on point with everything. From the rooms to the restaurants everything was just simple and peaceful. The newly built bar at the beach was beautiful, the bean bag chairs were a nice touch. The best part of this trip though had to be our final night at the hotel restaurant. Having Alen as our server was wonderful. He was funny and kind all while very professional. I wish we had known about him prior to the last night. He made for a great end to a great stay.

Everything about this hotel is 5*, the rooms, the views, the waiters, the food, the pool. A hidden gem amonst a fabulous backdrop. The staff cannot do enough to help and make your stay memorable.
Recommendations:-
The Wine Vault- try the 8 courses, expensive but WOW!!
Montes's-Voted best restaurant in Croatia, go experience it and you will see why!
Puntalina's-ask for an outside table and watch the sunset as you eat
Valentinos-arrive early 6pm, and drink a champagne cocktail on the rocks, truly amazing
Tipico-the most amazing staff and food, try the sea bass, its phenominal!

I will be returning, fantastic holiday, could not have wished for more

Dear Guest,

Isn't it true that a dinner at Wine Vault Restaurant is a most gratifying experience? It's a place where attention paid to wine is paired with the french delights. Our Sommeliere and Chef with their teams will be proud of your comment!

Thank you as well of highlighting our destination gemS, we're so proud of been a part of it.

We have stayed at the Monte Mulini hotel for the last couple of years and it is just a wonderful experience. The location, hotel design, rooms and staff are just brilliant and everything you would hope it would be - it is!!
Nothing is to much trouble for the friendly staff and the scenic views are majestic.
The pools and spa facilities are 1st class and we used these on a number of occasions.
I'm looking forward to our next visit which we plan for mid sept!!
Coupled with a short walk to the beautiful old town of Rovinj - this is one combination that is an absolute treat. If you have the chance to stay here - don't miss out!!

Room Tip: Try to get a room above the ground level so you can appreciate the views - it's worth it.
