My friend and I stayed in Hotel Pineta for one week on summer 2011. We had planned to come to Istria, Croatia, with my daugter's family (she, her hushband and their two kids, 4 and 5 yrs of age). The vacation and the town was decided after a good planning and studying the coast of Istria. Several friends had recommended Croatia to us as a place to spend vacation with kids travelling abroad for the first time ever.
For our convenience we decided to take a room from hotel nearby The Belvedere, where the family would stay(they stayed in an apartment). We would be close enough to meet the family every day and enjoy lunch, dinner, trips etc together, and still far enough to guarantee us some time together as a grown-up couple.
The Pineta and The Belvedere share great pool areas. We went to the pool every day, and the children, even the more suspicious big brother, got acquainted to swimming in the pools safe enough for children of their ages (naturally well guarded by grown-ups).
Pineta has great breakfast, and the weather was so fine, that we could enjoy it in the terrace with a great view to the marine. The only minus was thet there were no glutein-free bread available for me. But as I always travel with my own bread, so it was no big harm.
Pineta is situated near the harbour and the beach boulevards and about 1-2 km from a beautiful seaside beach, where even small childfren could swim in the sea.
One day we took a motor bike tour to Porec (just the two of us). Porec is bigger then Vrsar and there you can find more shops, art galleries and market places as well. From the harbour of Vrsar you can enjoy several ship tours f.ex.to a pirate cave and to Porec, too.
Pineta was kind of ordinary hotel. The staff was very friendly and I recommend it for everyone, who prefer simple and beautiful things for a very nice price. The air-conditioning was ok and the location of the hotel was excellent.
