Neptune hotel-main building is just fine, but it attached to other small hotels, where guests, practically, can only spend the night. All other hotel and restaurant services are located only in the Neptun Hotel main building.
Hotel Jurina is located on the coast, away from the Neptun hotel main building about a half-hour walk along the sea promenade. Hotle Jurina acts abandoned and "frozen in time". You can not believe that such places still exist, a bit creepy, redolent of old times, perhaps reminiscent of the old collective resorts from the '70s, or the old dormitories.
The rooms are very modest, small, but clean and each has its own bathroom (also small, modest but functional). The furniture is very old and unsightly, but it seems renovated with solid mattresses and clean sheets. There are no phones in the room (no connection with the Neptune hotel reception). TV, air conditioning and wireless internet, for this place are more than "abstract noun". The rooms have a small balcony, which looks more like a " fenced window ", but, of course, with a beautiful view (natural beauty of Brioni Grande). In Jurina is no single member of permanent staff; cleaners come short in the morning.
Lonely person as a customer probably, difficult to agree to spend the night here, but if you are not alone, it is almost as interesting as the” time machine” experience. Finally, all of this, is too "retro" indeed!

Room Tip: accommodation in the main building

I am quite surprised that some of people here does not understand what Brijuni is all about. This is a resort build in early 20th century on probably some of most beautiful islands one can imagine. After second world war it was the forbidden heaved of luxury for world leaders. Nowadays the hotels are maintained in this style literary. Nothing is changed. Even no AC in Neptun hotel.
however this gives you the real feeling of history. The service is also maintained the same way. Even the food receipts are the same. Beautiful. There is no shop on the island. no noise or any mass tourism manifestation.

I go there once per year for 2 to 3 days. Absolute relaxation and energizing. Just taking a bike or electric car (of course there are no cars on the islands) and going trough pine forest with number of roman settlements and great see is amassing. Not to mention that every now and then dears and other animals will cross your way.

evenings, really special. once all day tourists leave the island (even during the day there are not a lot of them) there is just few people staying there and enjoying the scenic views. I was there last weekend and Novak Djokovic was one of the guests. He was driving bike around the place.

Of course this is not an island where one will find standard mass tourism way of travel and it certainly requires good understanding of what you get before you go there.

Room Tip: go for see view room

We were here for a conference. The hotel is dated but quaint. Must have the sea view as it is breath taking. Food is reasonable, although sometimes cold. Service from the staff is excellent. The island itself is beautiful, quiet, lovely beaches. Worth renting a bike to explore it, lots of interesting sights.

If you want to take a bath in a marble covered bathroom, and drink morning coffee near by the sea, and to be served in old fashion manner, hotel Neptun on Brijuni island is place for you. Great surprise for me was that they served a water in crystal glasses, which was It' real fine and old fashion touch. We took weekend rest in May three years in a row and we have a great time as a family. Our little boy enjoyed staying in big hotel with a spacey room. We had a buffet breakfast and dinner and food was really delicious. In hotel they have organized numerous activities for kids and whole family such as archery, hunting for hidden treasure, golfing, etc. In hotel you can rent a bike for reasonable price or electric golf car so you can explore island on your own. Nature is really beautiful and maintained. On other end of island there is safari park so kids could see and pet animals such as lamas, elephant, ostrich, donkey, etc
Rooms are clean and service is nice but if you're looking for all night long fun you probably want find it on Brijuni. This place is more suitable if you're looking to spend some quality time with a family in nature, especially if you have small children.

Room Tip: Every room is quiet because there are no cars on island only difference is if you want sea view or not. We chose forest view so every morning we saw squirrels playing on pine three which was really cute.

We used to visit Brioni with a boat, and we love to repeat our visit quite often (at least once a year).
Therefore, we weren't exactly the hotel visitor, but we book our berth through hotel reception, take a breakfast and dinner at the hotel restaurants....

Let's start with a breakfast: not bad, not good, very average. We found staff half friendly, half ...they don't care. Very 80's.

Dinner:
They have 2 restaurants: Galia (which we prefer, when and if it is opened), and hotel's buffet restaurant, which is... very 80's. Nothing to remember!

The place:
It depends: if you are looking for a nature, and a quite place... then Brioni should be very nice. You should take a ride with a bicycle (or rent a golf car), and discover all the beauty of the island.

But: if you're looking for fun... go away!

There are 2 hotels at the Islands: this one and hotel Karmen... unfortunatelly both are very outdated.

Somehow: Brioni islands looks quite similar to Lerin or St.Marguerite islands near Cannes.
And: Brioni islands are worth of visit, thats' for sure.
Remember: Brioni is also an Italian high-end fashion house, and the company was named after the Italian name for the Croatian island group, the Brijuni islands. So much about beauty!

Unfortunatelly, all the service is so 80's...

Room Tip: If you are choosing between this hotel and hotel Karmen: they both have very similar location (near the sea), they both share the same restaurants... but hotel Karmen is even more outdated.
