We chose to come to Rovinj as it had great reviews but were concerned a hotel on an island would be a bit of a pain. It was actually magical getting the ferry over every evening and was a real experience even seeing dolphins a few times. It could get busy at certain times but was very reliable and if...

The hotel service is excellent, from the information center, the boat, the room, food choice for breakfast and dinner, live music in lobby, wellness, swimming pool, view,, The hospitality is unbelievable, the guess information, receptionist, room service, waiters, every single worker there and every single thing is outstanding, give us best memories... At first we thought that, due to can't...

We went there for the Easter weekend and I think that we couldn´t make better choice. Orgnization of the parking is good and pick-up of the suitcases from the boat upon landing is very kind and helpful. Boat is going to Rovinj and back every hour and you can relay on that. Hotel was clean, room spacious and nicely equipped....

Went here three years ago and really enjoyed it although the staff weren't up to much. Returned in July last year. What a shock and disappointment!! The island got so over crowded with "day trippers" that you could literally not find a place (let alone a quiet place) on either island. These day trippers used the hotel facilities, sun loungers...

Dear Libby B, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. While I wish you had a better experience, it is feedback like this that we learn from and use to improve. We work hard to deliver an exceptional guest experience, and it's apparent in this case that we fell short. If you give us a chance to...

Lovely location matched by a very nice hotel. We stayed half board but only ate at the buffet 2 or 3 times. Reception were happy to provide a packed lunch instead. Staff were friendly and attentive, as was our Thomson rep Jan who was happy to offer any advice on excursions etc. The boat to and from the island ran...

If you had a rating higher that 5 I would happily give it to Island Hotel Istra! The experience of getting to your hotel via a scenic boat ride means the holiday starts before you even arrive. The staff take your bags for you as soon as you set foot on the Island and check in at reception was quick...

Beautiful island, fantastic vista's, Superb hotel. At first we were unhappy with the room, no problem was given an alternative room without question. The hotel is extremely clean, staff very friendly, food high quality, and the provision of wine free with dinner was an unexpected treat. Only down side is there is no medical assistance on the island, and limited...

This wasn't the first time that I stay at this hotel (I hope that wasn't the last time either). Because of the conference I didn't have much time for sightseeing but the walk that I took on the island was very relaxing, Position of the hotel on the island is very good for business conferences as there is no dissipation...

I stayed in hotel-Istra for a business-conference several times now, always at the tail-end of the season. We think the hotel uses our business-conference to extend its own season a week or two. The island is lovely, quiet and a slightly isolated place. But the punctual hourly ferry will pick you up at the terminal or at the village-waterfront. Parking...

Very nice small island, lovely nature and great view from the hotel. Good food and profesional staff. I've spent weekend here. I will return again for bussines, but this place is great for family too.
