Excelent location, we took superior villa with jakuzzi. Cleaning ladies came every day after 16.00h, so all day we were without fresh towels. Every day we ask for broom, not possible;( There is almost none kichen, dishes.. so better take it with you or go out for eating.
Otherwise, location and arhitecture is really fantastic. We were of familly vacation- for sure it is familly friendy location

Room Tip: choose villa on sea side-south. beautifull view, beach 10 meters from villa

To me or to our Reception staff you may report any situation that has occurred and we will do everything to make your stay more comfortable. According to our offer, villas are furnished for four and for six persons. Depending to the certain villa that guest can book, equipment in the kitchen is suitable for six or for four persons (glasses, cutlery, cups, plates, bowls).
As you already experienced, Meliá Istrian Villas combine traditional Istrian architecture with modern comfort and are surrounded by flourishing pine trees. Village is eco oriented and family friendly location and offers all kind of entertainment for children and adults with the best fun for the perfect family vacations.

One of the best resorts in Croatia, we come here for 3 years now and will be coming back. Hard to find combination of luxury, indoor & outdoor pool area with accommodation that has your own big terrace and garden.

Room Tip: The apartments for 6 people are big enough to host 2 families - it has 2 bathrooms and a big living room.

We wanted to spend a few days at the end of Summer school holiday with the family.
The Melia Istrian Villas was a very good choice.

As it was end August - the property ways not overcrowded (hich we guess to happen in "high season".

The Melia is quite a big area - which was developed in 2 major steps: first the 2 storied apartmant buildings have been built - with a swimming pool, some bars, beach, etc.
The Villa compound was inagurated in 2006. Individual villas (with small terrace, and a small "private garden" - in different sizes and luxury.
We have taken one of the "smallest" category, but it was still perfect for our purpose.
The villas have their "own" pool, restaurants and even beach - but do not forget: the Istrian beaches are all "public" (namely anyone can go there).
The whole area is spacious, the sport center offers a variety of water sports, a tennis stadium and several courts serve the sportfans.
Many shops, supermarket, number of restaurants, etc.
We enjoyed the small restaurants in the neighbourhood, like NONO, MELONE, and ADRIA is Savudrijska.
Nice small cities can be visited in the evening in 30-40 kilometer distance.
The only problem we had is the quite big noise (sometimes until late) night. Even if the doors and windows close quite well - but the bass could even cross the walls...
