Hotel Eden
Ranked #6 of 23 Hotels in Rovinj
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We booked a weeks holiday, through Thomson, at a very reasonable price, and were more than pleasantly surprised with the quality of this hotel, particularly the idyllic grounds, on the edge of a National Park.
The brand new swimming pool complex was also spectacular, despite the rather chilly temperature!
Towels were provided at the pool which also had a handy bar for drinks and snacks
The restaurant had a fabulous selection every morning and evening and the quality of the food was very very good
The town of Rovinj was also a great place to explore with lots of cobbled streets and local artwork on sale at every turn
The entertainment team in the hotel were all very friendly and helpful, providing tours throughout the week, including a boat trip to the Red Island - ALL FREE OF CHARGE!

We recently returned from the Eden Hotel in Rovinj and found our stay extremely pleasant.
Beware of Thomson’s brochure though because it isn’t up to date, neither is their website – a lot is changing with the recent refurbishment, which has been considerable over the winter, covering most of the public areas, which are very smart. It has a completely new large swimming pool area which it shares with the neighbouring new 5 star Lone Hotel, also a new gym, wellness area and indoor swimming pool. The grounds were also being up graded. There were plenty of sunbeds and parasols, and a large grassed area where more sunbeds were available. The new publicity photos were only being taken whilst we were there so even the hotel’s website is not completely up to date.
Although the hotel looks a little dated from the outside at the front from the original 1970’s design, what’s inside is completely up to date. The rooms have everything you need and are very comfortable good although a little dark because of dark furnishings. Everything was clean throughout, and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a problem opening and closing our wardrobe doors because of wear on the runners, but patience was rewarded. The room came with a free safe and minibar, and drinks weren’t expensive. You should be aware that there are rooms facing in all directions – don’t expect to be overlooking the pool and lawns, most rooms don’t.
From the hotel it’s a pleasant walk down to the small bay through the trees, then a fifteen minute amble to the harbour. A beautiful setting and picturesque scenery right on the doorstep.
The food quality was always good – although the hot food was served “straight”, and sometimes a little bland in presentation. It depends whether you like your food served fancy or straight. The quality was quite acceptable however. But why do we have tinned vegetables? That was disappointing.
A number of trips are available and local guided walks are available. The trip to Plitvice Lakes entails a five hour journey each way, an early start and an extremely late return – but well worth this inconvenience, they are stunning.
Our only negatives were that evening entertainment and full daytime activities hadn’t started, and evenings tended to be a little “flat”. Also the rooms were quite warm at night – we asked about the air conditioning but were told it was too cold to have it on! This meant sleeping with the balcony door open to keep a little cooler at night.
It is a hotel we would happily stay at again – some guests come regularly apparently. We give it almost perfect scores!

Room Tip: Most rooms don't overlook the lawned and pool area, but still have a pleasant outlook.

This was the first time my husband and I had stayed in a hotel abroad. We have travelled a lot but normally book an apartment and do everything ourselves. This year we decided to 'take a flier' on a late deal at this hotel. It was great! The hotel is in a beautiful setting close to the sea and a superb area of parkland where you can easily find your own patch of beach or rocky inlet. The park has beautiful tracks where you can walk for miles. Alternatively you can hire mountain bikes and go even further. It is a 20 minute walk along the edge of the sea into Rovinj which is a delightful old town with quaint cobbled streets and plenty of cafes and interesting little shops. There are also a couple of interesting churches and museums.
The hotel itself is modern, clean and pleasant. The staff were absolutely excellent. Everyone spoke very good English and they could not have been more helpful. The room was quite small but had everything we needed. The only downside was despite asking for a quiet room when we booked we were woken up on three nights by very noisy drunk guests. The hotel did address this and peace was restored later in the week. (Not really their fault if people can't control themselves!)
We stayed half board.The food at the hotel was buffet style and there was plenty of choice - standards such as pork, chicken, beef, pizza etc but also a good sample of Croatian food to try (Which incidentally was excellent). Breakfasts were also very good with plenty of choice.
The pool was lovely and is a new one now shared with the hotel Lone next door. There were masses of sun loungers and a new pool bar.
Over all I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the pool and away from the lifts (which can be noisy early morning.) Note...

In October, we were at the hotel with my family. We had four rooms. Very nice hotel, close to the beautiful beach. Rovinj is beautiful. The breakfast was delicious, the rooms are clean. The spa is small but good. All in all we had a good time.

We have just returned from a week at the Eden Whilst the hotel is in a great location and the rooms and public areas a very good there is an incredible amount of room for improvement in the quality of the food, which ,frankly was appalling and their trips were either too far from the resort (5hours travel in each direction) or organised on a day when the most important reason for going on the trip is closed ( the basillica at Porec is closed to tourism on a Sunday and services are held there). A totally wasted day.

The Thomson brochure states that there are a Buffet restaurant, a Grill, an a' la Carte' eatery - not true. They also state that the evening menu is supported with "Show Cooking" also not true.
Their website shows the Eden as a "Platinum" hotel also not true. Thomson should either deliver their brochure descriptions or change their brochure. i suggest that a Thomsom Management representative needs to visit this hotel

Dear Jim N,
thank you for your feedback and I am very sorry that you did not thoroughly enjoy your stay with us. Unfortunately our grill restaurant by the pool was in process of renovation but all our guests could use à la carte restaurant “L” next to the outdoor pool as well. We do have à la carte restaurant in the hotel which shares the kitchen with the buffet restaurant but we use different dining room for that purpose. I want to apologize to you for your disappointment with your stay on this occasion and hope you will consider returning to Hotel Eden in the future. If I can help in any way then please do get in touch directly.
Best regards

We were expecting a high standard of food but we both felt it was very repetative, served at luke warm temperatures. Both the meat and fish were dry, no fresh vegetables, only frozen. Evening menu with show cooking was non existent as was the grill and a la carte restaurant. Having said all this the waiters and waitresses were very pleasant, in fact I was impressed with all the staff. The setting was second to none, just don't go the first two weeks in May as nothing is up and running and as Rovinj has a poor bus service you can't really go anywhere.

Room Tip: Have a pool facing room to get a stunning view.
