“A lovely stay in a very friendly hotel!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

The staff were really friendly and helpful and the hotel is in an ideal place to explore the region of Istria, this was our first visit to Croatia and we were captivated by its charm. We were away for a week and spent the first four nights at the San Rocco. The village is small and was fairly quiet, we ate at the hotel twice and once at the taverna by the church in the village which was excellent local fare and one night we drove out to a local restaurant recommended on trip advisor. The pool area was delightful and nice to return to after a days exploring. The rooms were as you would expect in a building of this nature, fairly spacious and well equipped, good air conditioning which was vital whilst we were there Bar prices and food was reasonable for a hotel of this quality.

There wasn't really anything i didn't like but we did borrow the bikes one day and they were not up to standard, i wonder how much use they get but if you are going to offer them as a facility they shoud be well maintained, we struggled to find two that seemed ok and then one only had a third of the gears working and the other only half a pedal, so we curtailed the extent of our ride.
Also breakfast was a little limited, particularly when staying for more than one night, no jam, no prepared fruit except for one morning and limited hot choice, fried eggs do not sit around well.
The restaurant was good in so much it is nice to sometimes not have to venture out and we are aware that it has a good reputation but we did not find the menu very inspiring, we did not opt for the gastronomique as these were all fish courses and a couple of things we ordered from the fairly small a la carte were not available. In all fairness we may have been unlucky in what we ordered as each time what we saw arriving to other tables looked very good whereas our own choices were not as inviting. There was a profusion of foam and truffle on the menu, I do wonder if there is perhaps a market in Istria for a more adventurous version of the menu tipico rather than a not quite good enough attempt at the high end cuisine which for us did not quite work. Overall though do not let this put you off from staying or eating here, the friendliness and surroundings more than make up for any small shortcomings and the leaving gift was a lovely touch.

Restful place, run with love, where every detail is taken care off. Plentitude of opportunities for hiking, biking, seaside activities if you are more of a sport type, or alternatively laying in the sun around outdoor swimming pool, going for sauna, or doing sightseeing of lovely ancient Istrian fortified cities. The rooms are clean, lovely decorated, surrounding is quite, no rumble at any time of the day. The food is excellent and malvazija (wine) is just delicious. The prices are at the upper end, but the service, the food, the hospitality is worth every dime.

We loved our recent stay at San Rocco. It's a charming little hotel with accommodating staff who go out of their way to assist. The breakfast area is lovely, overlooking the pool, and the restaurant deserves its reputation for fine food (but be aware it is pricey).
We stayed In a classic room which was large in size and very comfortable.
Brtonigla was a great base to explore Istria, being at most, an hour away from everything.
Well worth a visit.

This hotel is gorgeous!!!! It is family run and the service is excellent. It is a series of converted village homes and it feels just like you are in Provence or Tuscany! They have a very pretty outdoor pool and outdoor terrace dining. Also, a small indoor pool for cooler days. The hotel is very convenient for exploring Istria. It is also only a couple of scenic hours from Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Room Tip: We stayed in the most economical category of room and it was nice and charming. We had a bathtub, w...

Small boutique hotel in the countryside. Room was of a decent size and cosy. Bathroom was standard. Could hear noise throughout hotel in the room and at 22:00 when last guests departing from the restaurant downstairs a bit annoying. Breakfast was small and adequate but nothing special. Staff was friendly and accommodating. We didn't try the restaurant in the end as menu very focused on truffels and the prices accordingly high so cant comment. It was however well occupied and there seems a lot of smiling faces so could not have been bad. We instead went to a local restaurant just 5 minutes away which blew us away from atmosphere, friendliness, food and price. A wow! Hotel also had to our surpirse a indoor pool area besides the outdoor pool. Basically had a pleasant stay and would recommend it on. Good value for money.

Hotel San Rocco is a charming, family run hotel and restaurant located in the Buje area of Istria, Croatia. Four of us stayed at the hotel for one night on a road trip in Istria and we were the only guests in the entire place (low season/November). The hospitality was excellent, staff were concerned with making our stay comfortable including making sure we could order food, despite our late arrival. The food was delicious, especially the sheep's cheese, olive oil and local wine. Breakfast is meats, cheese, yogurt, croissant and coffee and tea. They also have an adorable little dog, who is the hotel mascott. The rooms were basic but comfortable, good shower and lots of bath products.

After spending 2 weeks on the coast of Croatia, it was a bit disconcerting to go inland tho on a recommendation. We weren't disappointed. It is a wonderful cultural experience to stay in a small town in Istria and the hotel is more of a charming inn with a sensational restaurant - small and personal in every detail. Our room was charming and the owners made every effort to be accommodating. A misunderstanding on the bill was resolved without any hesitation. I can still taste the truffles when I close my eyes almost 2 months later! One of our favorite stops.
