Just spent a week in the Hotel Eden - wish it could have been longer...
Built in the 70s and set on the edge of a national park the hotel is a short walk from the sea and a leisurely 15 -20 minutes stroll to the centre of Rovinj itself.
As a usually quite dry area (compared to the UK!) the rooms, facilities and grounds are exceptionally clean. All the staff are quite friendly and many engaged in conversation and jokes on a regular basis, despite the obvious language barriers.
The week we stayed was just days after the heaviest rain for a decade. The only outstanding problem from this downpour was the indoor pool being closed. A problem? No way! The outdoor salt-water pool area is excellent!
There is much to do if you actually want to do something. The options are not thrust in your face but are there if you look. Hire a bike for an hour for a few quid, take a dancing or archery lesson, walk the forrest paths, visit the beautiful town of Rovinj, sample the regions wines and countryside, take a trip to Pula or Porec, the list goes on...
Only a fussy eater could find anything wrong with the food. The buffet service allowed for dozens of combinations on the plate with every day bringing options for typical British meals for those with a restricted pallette and a range of local and regional foods for those who realise they are in a foreign country along side people from other countries.
The only time there was any problem was when an entire party of some 20 to 30 German tourists decended on the dining room at once, running the staff off their feet for some 20 minutes!
However, if you want a rich nightlife, disco and wall to wall action this is not the place for you.
