A free ferry transits passengers from that island where the modern hotel locates to the main land Rovinj hourly during the day. There were two ferry stops in the main land. If you would like to take a trip in the old town, you should get off on the second stop. Each ferry trip only takes about 10 minutes.
We had been offered with an excellent room service every day during the period of 7 nights. The room always looked nice and tidy with clean towels when we came back from the breakfast.
There were three restaurants in the hotel basement, but only one opened for customers. The buffet breakfast and dinner were good enough for people who have different tastes. The variety of foods was sufficiently supplied, even for those people came in very late. If comparing the same kind of buffet restaurants in UK, they could be given on an above arrange ranking.
Avoid taking a holiday to there in May. The daytime temperature was not warm enough to swim either in the sea or outdoor swimming pool and quite windy as well.
There was nothing going on during the night time in the hotel. No entertainment showing, No activity running, only four news channels could be watched in English.
To hire a bike is the easiest way to visit a very beautiful national park where the entrance was two minutes away from the hotel information centre in the main land.
Lunch costs in the main land restaurants on the average of 50-100 ku /pp (sea foods) without drinks.
Local excursions were at least 10% or 20% cheaper than the hotel offers. Only 399ku for a day trip in Vienna from Rovinj.
Do not forget to bargain in the open markets. I bought a beautiful hand-craft bottle of vodka on 90ku from the original price of 120ku (20euro in duty free shop).
Pay 10ku to the shop assistant lady in the local church, then you would be allowed to access to the tip of church (highest place in the whole town).
