“Worth the Adverture rain or shine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2008

Hotel Pinia on the island of Krk in the town of Porat in Croatia is well worth the adventure rain or shine. The hotel is family run by several generations and they are most accommodating. They have a multitude of staff and the staff treats you as though they have a financial stake in your well-being and comfort. The family is hands on to the operation of their hotel and they take great pride in satisfying your needs. They speak several languages fluently. The hotel is very cozy and elegant. The features throughout are excellent in detail. I highly recommend our room 212 since it was one of the deluxe newly renovated rooms, it is more spacious than any 5 star hotels we have visited, the balcony is very roomy and the bathroom has more luxurious features suc h as bath, separate shower, towel heater, separate private room for toilet and bidet, it will not disappoint. They have a full bath looking over the tree studded lot next door and the ocean. The balcony overlooks the lawn and the pebble and sandy beach below. The TVs are very small and only show CNN for English viewing, but they have numerous German and Italian channels. I would recommend the hotel provide pay for view movies in English or extend more English media. However this hotel will make you spend time with each other and your children in a wonderful atmosphere. The spa is tremendous: the in-door pool is fabulous and very large with pillars, the jacuzzi is perfect and they both have a view of the ocean and many relaxing lounges. They also have a spa, 2 saunas, steam room, separate relaxing room overlooking the ocean, another cooler steam room and a nice exercise room with TV and updated equipment. The decking around the outside is massive with plenty of lounge chairs. The restaurant has fantastic food, it is wholesome, fullfilling and cooked to perfection, it is not that decorative small sampling artsy food. I love that type of food on special occasions, but when you walk all day sightseeing, or swimming it is time for "stick to my ribs" eating for the next days' adventure. Eat the fish everyday because it is rare to have consistently the freshest of seafood every meal. The chef is a master and takes great care in your dining experience. If you depend on internet for business while you are away, I will alert you to the fact that you can have internet connection for 3 hours at a time, but the management is quick to set you up again once those hours have expired. The price for this ambiance is fairly priced and the hotel in my opinion should receive 5 stars instead of 4. I will warn you about the fee you must pay to cross the bridge to the island Krk, it is currently 30 KN, almost 4 Euro or 5 USD estimated. So everytime you enter the island you have to pay for the new infrastructure, which is a good thing for such a beautiful location. When you leave the island it costs nothing. The rest of Croatia needs about 3-5 years to catch up with highways and infrastructure. Must see on Croatia is the waterfalls in the southern part, it is worth the crazy driving there on back roads. The back roads are difficult to get around campers and trucks when their is no passing lanes and there are hairpin turns. Take your time driving or go by bus. Once the infrastructure is improved it should take less time getting from point A to point B and you won't notice the trucks and campers clogging up the one lane roads. But please do not be detered, Hotel Pinia makes Croatia the jewel it is meant to be one day. www.hotel-pinia.hr
