Hotel Monte Mulini
Ranked #1 of 23 Hotels in Rovinj
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 27, 2011

I'm typing this review on an iPhone and that's probably to your benefit because I can't say enough about Monte Mulini. First thing to know is that this is a boutique hotel, not a typical resort. This is a good thing in my opinion. Secondly, and probably most importantly, the staff are some of the sweetest, warmest, kindest hotel staff I've ever encountered, and not in a way that's 'too much' as you might wonder. Next, the location is just excellent - close enough to town to walk, but far enough to be off the beaten path. The view of the bay, the sunsets, the amount of sun the location gets, all perfect. Now to the hotel itself - just impeccable. So clean, so contemporary yet with a touch of the classic. Lots of high tech stuff too for the geeks out there. Wifi needs a bit of work - quite wonky. The food was perfect each and every mean. The Wine Vault was quite an experience - we were a bit frightened of the ambitious menu and the seemingly insane combinations - but the chef pulls it all off and silenced me immediately. Stick to the local wines too - you will not be disappointed - unreal actually. (Croatian wine should get more attention.) Lastly is the spa - I'm struggling with words to explain it. Something between a therapeutic water park, an art gallery, a private playground, and HAL 3000! Ok so yeah - we really enjoyed our stay.

Visited the Monte Mulini in Rovinj, Croatia in Sept 2011. One of the nicest hotels we've ever stayed in. Top top quality hotel. The views of the tree lined bay was a stunning site every morning when we drew back the curtains. Every aspect of the hotel, rooms, bar, restaurants overlook the pools and the bay. Swimming in the warm Adriatic was a pleasure. Rovinj itself is a lovely town, one of the most picturesque places we have ever been. Returning is a given.

We returned from the Monte Mulini last week. If only we could have found one fault but we couldn't. The hotel siting was perfect only an eight min. stroll to the centre of Rovinj were there were the most wonderful selection of restaurants to choose from if you chose to eat out at night. As for the hotel never before have we met with such polite friendly and knowledgeable staff all eager to please in a very quite way. The food was brilliant and the selection second to none. The Hotel had a sailing yacht which did cruises around the local islands three times a day lasting approx. 3 house and the evening cruise took in islands and the amazing sunset this lasted approx 1 3/4 hours. We will certainly return to the Monte Mulini

Had a very nice 2 nights break at this 5 star hotel. Great location and very friendly & helpful staff. The restaurant is excellent and the wine list unique, if you are looking for local wines - many thanks to Mr. Emil, the head sommelier!
Also enjoyed breakfast out on the terrace with a great view over the bay.

I am looking forward to my next break there .....

Room Tip: try restaurant MONTE in Rovinj

A beautiful hotel in a fantastic location within walking distance of Rovinj and yet set in a very quite bay away from road noise. We stayed in a deluxe room on the third floor but as all the rooms are the same apart from the suites we would recommend that you buy your own water and fruit and save on the upgrade. The service in this hotel is first class in everyway and the staff are excellent. Breakfast is excellent as is dinner although expensive but the food we had in the wine vault was the best that we had on our holiday. The pools are excellent with good service from the bar staff although the food selection was a bit limited some fruit sundaes and ice cream would have been a nice addition. The hotel also provides cycles so you can explore the adjoining pennisular without going on the road. This area was also great for walking. The rocky beach is very close to the hotel with numerous swimming areas. A very nice touch was the daily complementary cruises and sun set cruises these were superb and great for photography and the daily ones gave you the chance to swin off the boat. The crew onthe boat was great. As a couple we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Monte Mulini and with the use of a hire car we were able to explore the beautiful Croatian countryside. We are not sure whether the hotel has many facilities for children although the new sister Hotel Lone has a childrens club.

Room Tip: go for an Executive room and shop around for prices

So, if you are going to rovinj this is a lovely hotel about 15 mins from rovinj old town. Alot of the good stuff has already been said, however there are a few things they could and should do better.
1) the wifi is weak in the rooms and does not work by pool.
2) they allow sun bed reserving and there are not enough sunbeds by the pool for everyone. So unless you are prepared to join the sneaky pre breakfast sunbed squirrels, forget sitting by the pool
3) breakfast is ok with good pastries, fruit etc but eggs cooked in a greasy pan and had black bits like burnt oil. I had scrambled, partner had omelette, both were identical! Nice outdoor terrace but it becomes full quite quickly. 4)the air conditioning is rubbish and only slightly cools the room.
So in summary, read the other reviews and this is a great hotel, and rovinj is a fantastic place but the best 5* ever? Not quite, stayed in better elsewhere but did have a great holiday

Rovinj is a beautiful destination. And to be able to enjoy it in such a nice hotel as Monte Mulini, it’s a dream! Luxurious furniture, spacious rooms, excellent service – in a magnificent setting with a view over the Adriatic sea and pine trees. The park is lovely, if you don’t like to sunbath at the pool, you can ask to have the sun bed placed under any of the trees. You won’t need a car for the whole time of your vacation, since there is a nice 15-minute walk on a paved path, leading beneath the sea to the centre of Rovinj. To the other side of the hotel a vast protected park area offers relaxing walks through the forests. Another think worth mentioning: although the hotel is exclusive 5*, it is totally children-friendly, among the interesting features is a nice free library in the bar and the best breakfast one could imagine!
