Perfect for families, ideal for cycle enthusiasts - so if your family likes to cycle you get to have twice the fun and joy out your holiday at Sol Garden Istra. The interior is decorated in a rustic Istrian village style, with a lot of lavender and olive trees planted everywhere. The lobby looks exactly like a tiny village square, with reception on one end and a bar on the other - but the rooms are urban and comfortable. When not cycling through the Istrian countryside looking for a perfect tavern for lunch, you'll enjoy a spacious outdoor pool with a red brick sundeck around it (there is a smaller indoor pool so that you can keep up your training regime even during the colder months). The beach is some 100 meters away, through a nice pine tree alley. There are tennis courts nearby (Umag being the tennis center of this part of the world, ATP tennis tour and all) and you are welcome to use the gym and the fitness center.

We visited this hotel in Umag just once by recommendation. We stayed at village. The room was very average. But food was very good. Wellness was ok,the only problem are locker rooms. No space and very hot. I recommend it because price is afordable.

Stayed for 7 nights whilst playing tennis at umag academy. Room size ok and cleaning average but that's where it ends. More like a motorway services stop for German and Austrian coach tours. Door caters for this audience too. Drinks v expensive for area. A long way from town

Was a bit nervous about the hotel after reading reviews but it was fabulous. Great range of activities for our toddler and the room in particular was extremely spacious. The toddler splash pool was a big hit and the tree lined walk towards the beach relaxing. Had no issues

Yes on shorts, as long as they are not swim trunks or gym shorts. There’s an ATM in the lobby. We drove there, so I don’t know about car rental- but if you email the front desk, they will respond and help you. 🙂

We went half board as it wasn't so much more than B&B. I thought that the food was excellent! Plenty of choice. I would think you'd be pushed to not find something you liked. Lovely fresh food too. Only slight down side was how busy it got a peak times but we went at busiest time of year and even then it calmed down later on, after 8. Honestly cannot remember about drinks....think it was ok....neither cheap nor expensive...but local wine was very good.

If you are talking about the outdoor pools, I cannot help you -we were there in December! Indoors everything was fine!
