For the third consecutive year we stayed at the Melia Istrian Villas – this year at a Superior West Villa. In general the location is great, the way they built the Houses and the peace you find here is in my opinion unique in Croatia (and Istria) but I believe also in Europe for the dimension of the Resort.

We were not sure what to expect due to the mixed reviews. But all expectations have been exceeded. So firstly the minor Improvements, the hair dryer could do with an upgrade as the handle got hot. The shower screen could do with a bottom seal to stop water leaking finally if you use the sofa bed a blind in the... More

We stayed 2 weeks in a lovely standard villa. They are lovely villas, all with a terrace, sunbeds and a table to eat outside. We had the sofa bed made up and a cot bed as well and there was loads of room. Bathroom, amenities, tv etc. Also a very full kitchen with everything you might need for a holiday... More

For us it was not a perfect place. Too many people, loud music in the evenings (I guess coming from organized entertainment). It is a small holiday town where stop can find apartment houses and villas. If you have villa with sea view then it is ok, others you have to carefully book not to have swimming pool or a... More

Melia Istrian Villas are perfect for a family holiday. We had a villa with a seaview and the whole coastline in that area is stunning. There are loads of activities for the kids. Ours are 7 and 9 and they loved the inflatables in the Laguna, the water sports and pedalos and snorkelling in the sea! We hired bikes and... More

I loved the park, its versatility provides something for everyone. Water activities and sports, crowded sunny beaches but also more quite beaches. Sun and shade can be found at the park. We loved the restaurant Mundoaka and enjoyed very good food and the view is gorgeous. The availability of a daily varied sports program of SO Sport with spinning, Zumba,... More

We are 5, 2 adults, girl 14, and 2 boys 8 and 11, from Moscow, Russia. A few words about how to reach Melia Istrian villas, because it isn't so simple. The nearest airport is Pula, 90 km of a very good, new, modern highway, but you have to pay, because it is a paid road. But, in our case,... More

Poorly managed properties with many shortcomings. The advertising on the site is plain wrong – what is pictured as luxurious villas in lush gardens with direct access to the beach is in fact rather small bungalows with tiny bathrooms and single small wardrobe in the bedrooms (no chests there either). Bungalows are tightly packed together, separated by small patches of... More
