Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely boutique hotel you can completely relax at. Breakfast is great, dinner menu ist small and quite exquisite. The infinity pool overlooks an inlet of the Mediterranean Sea - awesome view! We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed every moment. Perfect, quiet spot to explore the area.

Great spot with incredible views . Rooms very clean Had a shared balcony Breakfast good. We asked for cappuccinos not filter coffee - I thought better. Fab location and great host. Golden retriever super friendly from a non dog person! The pool must be a delight in the hot months.

Actually, it is 4.5 stars and right on the money what is the average review score. Finding place: put in your sat nav Barban and you are quite safe to reach village If you put Puntera 8 D which is their address you will get into area near by but you need to follow signs which will lead you exactly to the villa. Road is narrow at places and last couple hundred meters it is more like pavement so careful for opposite traffic. Location: if you are fond of secluded place to rest this is exactly what you need, stunning view, though with the car, whole Istria can be cross within 70-80 min. Cleanliness: spotless Service/staff: hard working and they will do everything to make tour stay pleasant. Food: budget considerable, it is fairly priced, menu is changed daily for dinner. No lunch per se, but some cold cuts and salad can be arranged if advance time given. Breakfast is sizeable, but do not expect huge variety. Meat, fish, cheese, smoked ham are locally sourced. They do not use frozen products of any kind. Now some things to improve, and as I spoke with owner I will just mention time management. Time of check out should be unanimous everywhere, if not, guests will feel that they can check out amy time they like;10:00 or 10:30 or 11:00 etc.... Whatever small inconsistencies exist/found are compensated with lovely owners which goes beyond and above to ensure great vacation.

Magnificent view, beautiful swimming pool, very good cuisine and , cherry on the top, Duska’s hospitality and her love for welcoming her guests. We felt so welcome that we stayed in all day for 3 days, lounging in the pool, eating from Stefanija’s Kitchen in the evening and the great breakfast in the morning !

We chose the villa for the name, I really wanted to visit a place named as me, Stefania! We were immediately impressed by Duska, the owner, and the story of the place, built with love and high-level taste in name of the grandmother. Everything, from the cuisine, the furniture, the environment, is expressing the humanity and joyful of the owner. We really enjoyed our staying there, with special dinners and a very comfortable room; and all the suggestions to visit the surroundings and the seaside were really appreciated. Thanks, Duska, we will sure can me and visit you again. Good vibes there, highly recommended!

Villa Stefanija exceeded our expectations in every way: scenery, service, amenities, and value! The restaurant was excellent providing a broad range of healthy, tasty foods served poolside. The staff was excellent and the owner is an active member of the team. Parking is free and is 50’ from the entrance to the Villa. Villa Stefanija will be our go to location in this region of Croatia!

Villa Stefanija is an amazing place in every sense of the word. The view is one of the most breathtaking you’ll ever see. The food is worthy of a Michelin star and Duska’s sympathy and joyful mood makes you feel right at home. Highly recommend!!!

We stayed in Villa Stefanija for a week in mid-September and very much enjoyed our time there. The location is excellent in all respects - a short car journey from Pula airport (a car is essential but the roads are generally quiet), a tranquil setting with that beautiful view, ideal for exploring inland and coastal Istria. The hotel is tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. And the food, freshly prepared, is delicious. This high level of quality and comfort comes at a price but the hotel scores top marks on all the things we value on holiday and we would go back in a jiffy.
