My wife and I,being 'older parents',with two teenage children,left for our holiday in Croatia with the usual great expectations,expecting the usual great disappointment! We were pleasantly surprised by the good,quick flight,with plenty of legroom,and great on board food.
This was just the start of the best holiday ever spent by us! Pula airport was quick,uncrowded,and we were on board the airconditioned coach within half an hour!
More was to come,however; our arrival at the lovely Hotel Laguna Istra,with its friendly staff,high quality,clean rooms,and excellent food.
This is a wonderful hotel,and location for the perfect family holiday,so long as you do not have children whose sole aim in life is to spend their holiday on fairground attractions or swigging lager, which, fortunately we do'nt!
There is something here for every sane, peace loving person who wants to escape the madness and stress which is the UK today; walking through little towns with streets that are only wide enough for two people side by side, vivid flowers overhanging sunlit balconies, little shops selling locally made souvenirs that are not from China, and always the blue sea on all sides. Going to Porec on the little train and coming back in the moonlight by water taxi!!! The romance of the location,the warmth of the people,the absence of yobbery,all complimented by this wonderful hotel,which we cannot fault in any way.
It is the ultimate escape from our panic driven,humdrum lives, and we recommend it to all decent people, with the Laguna Istra and its wonderful staff and facilities always in the background to welcome you 'home'.
Our flight home was spent planning when we can go to the same location again!
Havala,Hotel Laguna Istra!
We'll be back in 2008!
