Staff was weird and unfriendly, beach towels were complicated to get and we had to wait till 9:45am even there were people waiting since 8am. The building is so old school and for the price we paid you can stay at the Bowery Hotel in NY. Only nice thing is the beach and the village of Rovinj nearby!
All the staff were friendly and helpful. who could not have been better the location is astonishing excellent value for money
The island is beautiful and we perched ourselves on a rock for the entire day--swimming, taking the sun, and eating some fruit and cheese we bought at the market the day before.
The hotel was nice but definitely more on the "resort" type of hotel. Be prepared to pay for every service the hotel has to offer -- the towels cost $4 dollars to rent for the beach, the kayaks cost money for the rental, and there is no wifi in the rooms (only in the lobby and it is so slow we could not even process our online check-in). The ferry service runs once on the hour and make sure to get there early as it fills up! What is nice is that at least the ferry service is free for guests... Overall, I would say that you are much better off finding another hotel and just traveling to the island one day if you want to see it. The island gets packed with people not staying at the hotel (plus all of the hotel guests) and tends to just feel overcrowded and dirty.
The island location on which this resort hotel is built is visually magnificent, combined with car-free tranquility. We spent happy hours swimming in the warm crystal clear water off both beach and rocks. The self service food choice and quality were both outstanding. Having an after dinner drink on the pier as the sun set was an especially tranquil memory.
Main dining room gets unrestfully busy at peak times, but by day 2 we had largely solved the issue by eating earlier or later than the rush.
The rooms were old and ours had dead bugs in it. Once we told the front desk they came in and sprayed chemicals even though we had a one year old. The next day we found a dead lizard in the center of our room.
Very nive clear water, perfect place for relaxing and lying at a beach. Good place for a diving and snorkeing. Very nice, quite, romantic and peaceful island.
You need a boat to get to a continent and back, the last boat leaves to the island at 0:30, so if you plan crazy nights, it's not the best choise to stay at. Nothing is free of charge, you have to pay for everything, like a beach chairs, to play any kind of game like tennis, billiard, badbinton and e.t.c.
Exactly as I imagined having read the reviews and usual "thorough" research.Absolutely no disappointments and extremely happy with our weeks holiday.Even the hotel's exterior was not the "ugly" construction 70's style, which some reviews led me to believe .Swift check in / out. Lovely spacious Pool /Sea View room as requested,very good daily housekeeping,fabulous hourly boat service to Rovinj.Beautiful island with many secluded areas if you wish to find peace.Very well thought out in relation to seating,view points,static fitness equipment and litter bins.would return in a heartbeat.
limited food availability after 10pm.
Good location , only 15 minute boat to Rovinj and all its bars and cafes. This is necessary as the Island itself only has 2 eateries, one of which is a buffet that closes at 9.30pm. Plenty of activities available on the Island and beautiful location . Located next to another island, full of wild life and accessible by foot or on bikes. Rooms are well furnished, clean and spacious and our superior room had a view of the sea. Maid service excellent and friendly. Breakfast buffet extensive and catered for all tastes.
Some staff attitudes, especially beach / pooside cafe bar staff, who made me feel insignificant and invisible. I waited over 20 minutes to be served a bottle of water on one occasion.It was as if the staff were deliberately ignoring me and had an ability to look straight through me whilst serving others. Only 2 places to eat in the evening and the buffet option closed at 9.30 pm. Lanterna Restaurant is the other option. Here i also experienced the feeling of being completely ignored for reasons i have still not worked out. Waited 20 minutes and had to ask for a menu. Waiter appeared surprised. Got menu then waited another 20 minutes while they attended to everybody else. Had to ask again whether we could be served as nobody came anywhere near us. We did visit on 2 other occasions and the service was fine, so this was inexplicable. Also, on the same night in the cocktail bar, we were asked , very rudely whether we had paid as we were leaving. I was not happy at being accused and felt quite paranoid by the end of all this. Staff were definitely having a bad night.
The room was lovely, clean and spectacular view. The whole island was stunning. The restaurant next to the hotel, Lanterna had the best food in Rovinj, excellent friendly waitor, live music and beautiful views. Croatian wine. Great breakfast. Large outdoor pool and indoor is a great option. Would love to go back for longer.
The attitude of some of the guests. The cleaners cleaned the room well but left all dirty glasses and cups for the whole duration of our stay. Guests put their towels on sunbeds hours before using them. Before 9 all sunbeds were taken with not one person on them. Couldn't work the aircon but just opened the balcony door anyway. Paying for sunbeds on the beach.
Great location, great service with extremely helpful and polite staff. Good options for food and the hourly boat service to the mainland was perfect. Very modern and well maintain rooms. AC worked very well.
Double beds were not one piece. Shower was small and not perfectly constructed. Free water near pool would be great.
Great place for holiday, and great organization to travel from island to land and back. The restaurant outside hotel is perfect and the food as well.
Very poor Internet connection (only in lobby, and if it is too crowded, you can forget about it). Room was pretty small for a superior room for 3.
Great location. Friendly professional staff, helpful.
No wifi in the rooms. Electricity cut from time to time
there is no double bed
The staff were helpful and accommodating. Check-in/out was seamless and the room was quite nice with an incredible view. I assume all rooms offer a great view due to the fact that the hotel is surrounded by the Adriatic. Breakfast/dinner was awesome - a large variety of options for all palate types. Most importantly, the beaches and the views are stunning and would impress even the most seasoned beach enthusiast! Clean, comfortable and very much enjoyed!
Parking was not as straightforward as originally beloved…as their is a shuttle to an offsite parking lot which presents as a bit sketchy. Due to the parking requirements, taking the ferry is not seamless and you should arrive at least 1 hr before your planned ferry trip if you are arriving with a car.
All the staff were friendly and helpful. Especially Ivice in the Captains Club who could not have been better and Igor who was an excellent Instructor at shooting and archery.
We booked a double room but received a twin room with the beds pushed together.
• Boat service (including luggage) was perfect, • exchanging money at the reception desk, • ATM service into the hotel, • coming back late in the night and to find a meal waiting for you in your room when the reception knows you didn't have the possibility to have dinner, • fast room cleaning, • friendly night receptionist.
• presence of some "tactless" employees at the breakfast, • no hotel's doctor, as explained to us, • upgrading the bathroom would be a "plus".
This was a return visit, so clearly we like this place. Its location on an island of the coast gives it a special secluded feel. Parking of car on mainland was no problem and shuttle service provided worked well. Hourly ferry service runs like clock work and add to the package in a positive way.
It would be so nice to be able to have breakfast/ dinner outside, rather then being stuck in the massive dining room
Location, location, location ;).. the smell of the Mediterranean herbs and plants in the hotel yard.. hotel boat ride to Rovinj and back.. friendly staff and good food.. and captain bar (cocktails are not so good like the bar itself)
quality of the bed was poor, the bed is too small and you could feel even the smallest movement of the partner (we were in the standard room).. they forgot us and our car while we were waiting in the cafebar for the boat.. they wanted us to wait for the next boat to the island but after some negotiation they found a nearby place to park our small car and everything was fine… a better organization would be easier for all
The relaxed feel of the whole place. Knowing that you were on an island but could easily get to the mainland by the complimentary ferry which ran a frequent service. Good amount of pools both indoor and outdoor as well as the indoor whirlpool. The wellness centre and my treatments. Good buffet choices in the dining room. It's not our normal holiday choice but we thought we'd give it a try and we are so glad that we did.
Ants in the bathroom of our first room but we spoke to the reception and were moved.
Excellent location, island w/calm clear water, easy boat transport, great facilities. Breakfast was good. "Lanterna" fish restaurant was good - better than the general buffet restaurant.
Evening entertainment minimal - boring, fluorescent-lit indoor bar area - although perhaps in high season something more. Couldn't get WiFi in the public area, so glad that I brought a LAN cable for the in-room internet.
Wonderful location, good service and very kind and helpful staff (all of them speak foreign languages), many attractions and facilities, boat included in the price every one hour to go to Rovinj, very nice swimming pool, clean, breakfast ok and rich with decent coffee (filter, but good, not that brown water like in most "good" hotels in Germany or Austria), we had the superior room which was modern and big enough
Beds are not bad but not one piece and easy moving/separating (this is totally unpleasant for a couple), quite small shower cabin
Clean and modern.
My mistake. I thought this would feel more secluded and natural. Instead it was more like a mix-level cruise ship. Lots of people on a Reisetour kind of group. Wifi was very spotty. Food healthful.
The island itself is beautiful. Quiet, full of bird-life, and with many activities from which to choose. One could stay at the hotel in complete calm, as a beach holiday.
The transportation to and from the hotel (by water taxi) was less than reassuring. On one dark evening, the captain was drinking a beer, and the buoys were not lit. The ferry schedule was also a bit lax, but perhaps that is the nature of an Adriatic holiday. The arrangements for off-site free parking were simply awful. We waited long periods for rides to and from our car, and ultimately, we gave up. Apparently, the ferry company and the parking company do not communicate. Finally, the a la carte restaurants were few on the island, and therefore we elected to go into town. That would have been fine had the ferry service been more frequent (only once an hour) and assuring.
excellent location and resort, friendly staff, fine choice of food, hotel facilities, child care
from a 4-star hotel one can expect: wellness facilities (sauna, Turkish bath etc.) and bathrobe without extra cost and better coffee for breakfast (filter coffee only)
