This place is really worth a visit if you enjoy scenic walks, crystal clear water, nearby medieval towns and fabulous scenery with lots of wildlife including swallows and swifts. It is a comfortable hotel with good food, friendly staff and lovely rooms with excellent sea views. A short boat trip by an hourly ferry to and from the beautiful medieval...

I spent several nights at the huge modern hotel on Rovinj’s St Andrew’s Island, a place that seems to be very popular with large boisterous German and Austrian groups of elderly travellers. My room (No 283) seemed to be one of the very few rooms that did not receive direct sunlight either in the morning or in the afternoon, and...

Gorgeous setting. Large rooms. Food, especially breakfast, was abundant. Great staff. Interesting dinners. Wine and beer from dispensers which are included in price. Large capacity for guests. Sometimes felt as if I were in a cafeteria, but overall the chapel room is lovely for dinner, too.

Having stayed at the (now demolished) Hotel Park two years ago, we wanted to revisit as Rovinj is a beautiful location for a holiday. We did have a few misgivings about being on an island with only an hourly boat service, but the boat runs like clockwork and even on a slightly blustery day, was a 15 minute treat. We...

Although the architecture is very austere it is located on beautiful Red island. It has a very nice connecting pathway to a neighboring park like island. We enjoyed a very peaceful and secluded walk during the shoulder month of May. The Seagulls were nesting at this time and it was wonderful searching for them. We stopped at the outdoor cafe...

Room had a sea view which was well worth the upgrade. Stayed half board, food was of a good standard and evening meal includes drinks, local wine or beer or soft drinks. The island is served by a boat which sails to Rovinj every hour on the hour and returns on the half hour, it runs like clockwork and you...

We stayed in the Hotel Istra for 5 nights. It was a fairly quiet time of year so we got a really good deal via TP. The hotel is modern, spacious and airy, as are the rooms. The island that is home to the hotel is lovely with a fabulous beach, swimming pool and loads of space to wander around...
