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.

I stayed at this hotel with my family and found it to be a unique experience and enjoyable experience. There are no cars or roads on the island, it probably takes around 1 hour to walk the circumference of the island, there is a footpath to help make this easier. The island has it's own beach area which doesn't have any natural shade from the sizzling summer heat, so most people relied on parasols or the trees in the beautiful park area just before the beach. The swimming pool is large and was fun to use, because of the design, we spent a lot of time there. I should add, the view from the island, of the mainland, is fantastic, especially at night when the mainland lights come on. Unfortunately, the island does not have enough lighting of its own for night walks, which was disappointing.
I found the hotel staff to be really friendly and helpful, great customer service. One downside is the restaurant, breakfast omelette was delicious, but apart from that, I thought the rest of the food was mediocre, and dinner time became boring by the 3rd night. Be warned that, we paid for half board, but this does not include drinks, which are overpriced. I think it was £4 for a small glass of coke and when there's 4 of you these costs quickly add up. On this point, I should add, Croatia overall, is a very expensive country, from Taxis to tours, because tourism is their main industry and it only lasts a few months.
There are boats to pick you up from the mainland and from the island every hour, no charge if you are a hotel guest, and the boat Captains are very friendly as well, the trip takes about 20 mins each way and I found it quite enjoyable. PS the water at the beach is crystal clear and there are loads of fish swimming around close to the pebbles, so remember to take your snorkels.

We were here for 4 days (weekend) as family, Hotel is on small island connected with free boat every hour, very quiet (except seagull, but it is nature), rooms are small but clean, visible that it is old Hotel with old standard, breakfast and dinner were OK and free activity I recommend archery under the three and pool with Jacuzzi (not working all day). Price is moderate to high. Recommend to spend few days for vacation and tours to local places. Parking is organized in city and it is free with shuttle. I will probably visit this place once again.

This hotel exceeded my expectations for what is classed as a three star hotel the room a bit small was very comfortable nice shower toiletries provided clean towels and a beautiful view even had a fridge.
All the staff we encountered were extremely helpful and friendly.
Breakfast was exactly what you expect it to be a very good selection of hot and cold options.
We didn’t use the facilities of the swimming pool as more of a beach person but it looks very clean and tidy the beach was spotless

The boat service to and from the island was every hour . very friendly staff anyone with mobility issues were helped on and off the boat however not suitable for wheelchairs

Travelling as young family with two children (8 and 3) we were excited to stay at the hotel and visit the nearby town of Rovinj. The hotel is only accessible by water taxi which is free for guests of the hotel. Our first challenge was to find the relevant pier from which to get the boat as our taxi driver was unsure of the location. The hotel reception in Rovinj is in the building marked as ‘Island Hotel Reception’ at the far end of the Rovinj close to the Grand Park Hotel. On google maps the building is listed as Maistra Hospitality Check-in.

The hotel feels exclusive as you arrive by boat and walk up the steps to the main entrance. Check in was easy and our bags were transported for us from the boat directly to our room. The room itself was nice and clean with separate rooms for us and our children and then a shared bathroom. The bathroom is a little dated and the shower could have done with being a little bigger, but for a few days it was fine. The hotel has a great pool area, with a range of pool sizes including a splash pool for non-swimmers and then a slightly larger kids pool and a deeper adults section. Again the pool was nice, but could do with a little bit of updating and painting, but again a minor point. The views around the island are fantastic and it’s pleasant to walk around the island along the path and take in the views, especially at sunset.

The food at the hotel was nice, with large buffet offering provided at breakfast and dinner (we went for half board) and then drinks are extra. Rovinj is also well stocked with bars and restaurants and the water taxi runs every hour from the hotel and takes only a few minutes to get to the mainland.

Overall we have a lovely stay at the hotel, the staff were friendly and helpful and I would recommend staying here. It would not take much for the hotel to have a more luxurious feel with things like having a pool bar open, having more space and seating for the evening entertainment and updating some of the rooms.

I come to Hotel Katarina for my summer holidays each year since 2013 as it's a truly unique place!! It features a great combination of elements which make your summer stay just perfect: located on a small island, 5 minutes by boat from the Rovinj city centre, all covered by the old green park, surrounded by the views, scents and sounds of the sea with many beaches which are never too crowded and on top of this - a magic historical atmosphere of a 19-century mansion of the Polish aristocrat - count Milewsky!! Where else could you enjoy staying at the historical place surrounded by the marvelous nature at a rather affordable price?
This place is for those who value a quality escape from the noise of contemporary big cities and a quiet contemplation by the sea. Though, if you are suddenly up for some "going out", the city is just 5 minutes from you by a regular and free boat connection!!
Katarina's key staff members are exceptional people: friendly, welcoming and always super helpful. There is nothing impossible for them where it goes about the comfort of their guests!! I call this hotel and it's staff "my Croatian family" and it's just so comforting to come back here each year to immerse in this beauty and serenity, especially in the current turbulent times.
Shortly, it's just pure LOVE :)

Our trip to Hotel Katarina was very good. The island is beautiful and has so much to offer with plenty of lovely beaches and a large swimming pool. As well as this there is also a great outdoor bar which overlooks marina.

Our room was clean and had most things we needed, apart from an iron or ironing board. Additionally, some aspects of the room were a bit outdated compared to the bathroom, however, this was not a problem.

Staff and services were also very good and very efficient. The boats too and from the town ran on time and allowed easy access to Rovinj throughout the day.

Breakfast at the hotel was also very good, with a large range of choice and plenty of freshly cooked food. We only had tea there once but it was also done to a very good standard with a wide variety of food.

Overall, a great hotel and would definitely visit again.

I stayed in the hotel with my best friend we wanted a relaxing getaway, and we definitely got it. We had a twin room in the main building on the ground floor spotlessly clean really quiet at night time and had the most beautiful view of the old town. Breakfast was superb had everything that you could want.
Every day we spent on the hotel beach, it was spotlessly clean no shortage of sun, loungers, and sun. Umbrellas staff are always available to help. The beauty of being on the island is that you’ve got lots of walks through the woods to get you out the Sun and also shady side of the island. You can go in the water and to get out the Sun.
Boat service over to the mainland just made going out in the evening extra special. It’s a fantastic service and the staff on the boat always helps people get on and off.
I love this hotel so much. I’ve booked 3 rooms this to come back in September with my mum, my dad, my brother and his partner to celebrate my 50th and my mum’s 80th, so I’d like to say that says it all

well done to all the team

It was OK - but 3* is even pushing it a bit. Although the location is beautiful, the place could be made so much more enjoyable with some basic changes. It is clear that it really has not been maintained well over the years, with peeling paint around the pool and even repainted bathtubs.

The room booked was an executive suite, but certainly did not live up to its name as it was very basic indeed and more like a Premier Inn 1980's style. The shower curtains certainly have to go! With a lick of paint and some updated amenities and furniture, the rooms could be great.

The food was very below par and could be massively improved with a new cook and more inspired team. One evening buffet was enough to put us all off for the rest of the trip. A good buffet is not that hard to do, but this was basically inedible. Breakfast was OK, but nothing special either.

All of these points are easy fixes and with a bit of care and attention, it would certainly be a place to go back to. Letting it slide into decay is a real shame, as it was at one point a really beautiful place. New management, some general upkeep and a new chef would certainly help future guests have much more enjoyable stay in the future.

This was our fourth stay at the hotel. The atmosphere was the same which means wonderful. It’s so quiet, lush gardens, nice foot paths for morning walks, clean water and in general a very nice place for a relaxing holiday. The service is great, we had a late check out without paying any extra and everyone working there were friendly and polite. The prices have gone up considerably since our last stay in 2019, drinks, ice creams and lunch were quite expensive, but similar prices on the mainland in Rovinj. Perhaps it’s the Euro to blame or price rise in general.

This hotel is a gem, We loved our stay here. The staff are incredibly friendly and very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble from the reception, to the cleaner, the boat and restaurant staff. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The pool was spotless and we never had any trouble getting a sun lounger by the pool or by the sea. There are swimming spots all around the island. We loved going to Rovinj on the boat every night. It was a magical 10 days!
