Our purpose was to hang out all day by the clear blue water and that's what we did. There are lots of cozy nooks for private sunbathing. As a guest you can rent towels to put out on the rocky surfaces. We enjoyed to pool area one afternoon. The drinks are a little pricey. The breakfast is huge and has...

I was there in early October and the weather was surprisingly cool, so I could not enjoy the sea as I planned, but the setting, the island itself was beautiful. The service was also excellent. Rooms are basic but clean and warm with a stunning view of Rovinj. The entire experience was enchanting, from watching sunsets to enjoying breakfast on...

The hotel is good for a 3 star. Breakfast is excellent, our room had a view of the old town which was lovely. We had a mix up with the water taxi which only runs hourly & we just missed it at about 11.30 pm so had quite a wait on arrival. However once you get used to timetable it...

OK first the good bits. The trip by boat to the island, which is a magical location, with wonderful views, gardens and a superbly kept swimming pool area, is very, novel, but a prolonged stay may find the novelty, wearing a bit thin.The front of house can only be rated a first rate, the staff are helpful, knowledgable and efficient....

First time to Croatia and was not disappionted. The area of Rovinj is truly stunning. With its old town and cobbled streets, alleyways with craft and art shops, little cafés and bars abound. There are plenty of restaurants all around the harbour area all very reasonable prices and plenty of selection of food. The hotel Katarina is a 3 star...

Hotel is dated although it commands a great position, the suite was very basic but clean, nice views from the balcony. Pool area is very Good. Breakfast a bit manic and laid out over a large area so you almost needed asap to find what you wanted.
