We spent a wonderful fortnight here. There is something very special about the islands, so peaceful and relaxing. The staff were without exception amazing with special mention to Larisa who sorted a problem out for us with courtesy and efficiency. Superb food with lots of choice. The only fly in the ointment was badly behaved children, unsupervised by parents and impinging on adult areas totally ruining the tranquility. If this was adults only it would be paradise on earth.
Excellent hotel on an small island. No traffic, no streets stands.. just nature, peace and quiet. We stayed in big superior room with seaside view. New, modern furniture, big tv screen.. Clean with the good wifi connection in the rooms. Food in the hotel was excellent, friendly stuff, everyone was polite. You can go to swim in the sea or you have nice pools (inside and outside the hotel). Big, modern hotel to relax your body and soul. :)
We stayed in the End of October, hotel was almost full because the price was very low. Wellness in the hotel was amazing, pool and saunas was very clean and modern. Price of the drinks are little bit high for local People but ok. Breakfast was solid but the dinner is amazing. Staff was very Kind and proffesional. Specialy big thanks to girl at spa reception Sara. We are comming again.
Wow, is all I can say! From the boat transfer to checking into the hotel, we fell in love with the island 😍 Everyone was so friendly, everything was spotless and the food was amazing. The free boat transfer every hour to the town was so handy as well! We came to Island Hotel Istra to celebrate our third anniversary and the manager sent a bottle of wine and cupcakes to our room as well as booked us a 4 course meal at the restaurant next door to the hotel for only an extra 150 Kuna each! We were sat with an amazing sea view which was so romantic 🥰 highly recommend the 2nd Meat menu! The food included in the half board was also amazing, there was so much choice from Turkey and vegetables , pasta Bolognese to traditional istrian food with all different fish to try! An added bonus as well was that you got unlimited wine, beer and soft drinks with your food as well. The breakfast was a wide range including traditional English foods and my favourite was pancakes made right in front of you ☺️ Theres also lots of choice of other places to go for food if you want to go to another restaurant on the island. The pools were a bit cold due to the time of the year but still we had so much fun in them. There was plenty of sunbeds for everyone and the pool bar served the most tasty cocktails 🍹. And the sea wowwwww 😍 it was so blue, however it is full of jellyfish, but we found out these are harmless and don’t sting you. Again, there so much room for you to sit/lay around the beach and also an opportunity to pay a little extra for VIP. You can also hire kayaks, paddleboards or even go diving! You also have free access to the spa included in your holiday, we made use of the sauna/steam room and the whirlpool a few times, however you can pay extra for some treatments! We also went on an excursion on our last night which the hotel kindly organised for us! We hired a private speedboat tour to take us to watch the sunset and see the dolphins, which was beautiful for only 350 Kuna each for 2 hours. Really was a once in a lifetime experience 😍 The only thing I can say negative about the hotel is that the aircon isn’t the best, but we managed just fine! Also the minibar isn’t stocked us, but you can order room service to your room for some cold drinks or even food. Highly recommend this hotel to everyone, especially couples wanting a romantic break away from all the hustle and bustle ☺️…
Late deal booked lovely hotel and very clean. The rooms were really small and they could do with a freshen up. The reception area and bar lovely open plan bright spacious with a modern feeling. It was a bit chaotic in the dining room but that was people not the hotel all the staff were hard working polite and friendly. Food was nice plenty of choice and a decent standard for breakfast and evening meal, most things were on the cold side. Pool area and beach also clean. A free boat to take you to the town good service and a lovely town. The only thing was I asked for a room upgrade as it was a special occasion I got a standard e mail saying they can’t do anything before arrival but check on arrival I did not hear any more. It was a shame as the room was really small.
