“Lovely hotel, friendly staff”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

We stayed for three nights in an apartment with a bedroom and a pullout bed, small kitchen and good-sized bathroom. There was also a terrace with a table and chairs, shared with other guests, but we were lucky enough to have it to ourselves whenever we went out there. The building is very attractive, set in landscaped gardens, and the pool area is lovely, with chairs, beds and umbrellas. The whole place is very clean and well cared for. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The owner told us the history of the place and showed us old b&w photos of how it used to be. They booked a taxi to pick us up from Porec, where we arrived by ferry from Venice, and gave us advice on local attractions. Small details like drying racks for pool towels were a nice touch. The restaurant was excellent. We were arriving late and ate there the first night, not sure what to expect, but the food was outstanding. We had fresh fish with a big platter of vegetables - eggplant, zucchini and potatoes. The friendly waiter recommended a local wine which was delicious. Breakfast was also very good, with a range of meats, cheeses, cereal, fruit, yoghurt, juice and pastries. They made cafe lattes to order and those were very good too. The location is perfect - about 20 minutes' drive to Rovinj, a charming town with a port and good beaches. We liked being out in the country, though, away from the bustle. There is a walking path right outside the hotel too - a good place for a walk or a jog. I hope we have the opportunity to return!

We were guests at a family reunion lunch at Dva Baladura.....six months later i can still remember the taste of the seafood platter we feasted upon for entree, the fish fillet with truffles we indulged in for main, and the fritelle for dessert...what can i say....MAGNIFICENT!
Cannot wait to go back....what a pity Melbourne is soooooo far away!

This small hotel is a great place, this is not the first time we stayed. One of the biggest differentiator is that this hotel is pet friendly, so you are more than welcomed to bring your pet without any additional charge. Apartments are pretty big, rooms are different (there are big and smaller rooms), but they are all very clean and nice refurbished. Staff is very polite and they will do everything to help you have a pleasant stay. The hotel itself is charming, pool is also nice although I didn't use it. Restaurant is something I would recommend, food is excellent and you will have a great meal for decent prices. People from all over to come and enjoy their food, specially home made pasta, but fish and meat are also something I would recommend. there is a huge walking/trekking path near hotel, so you cam enjoy a few kilometres long walks. This hotel is not close to the coast, but it is not too far and you can have your peace even during crowded tourist season. The only thing this hotel could improve is breakfast, too small and not enough varieties. If they improve it I would call this a perfect place. I would also recommend it for smaller business groups or team buildings

Room Tip: If all the rooms are booked they will give you apartment for a room price :-) Not all the rooms are...

This site has been a fantastic surprise. Nice location in centre-south Istria, from where you can easily access the mayor visiting sites of the Peninsula and just few km away from Rovigno. Very quite due to its countryside position, full relax is assured. Common areas are amazing, including swimming pool, outdoor restaurant, several plants in the wonderful garden. Service is nice, people with friendly style and well organized. We had 2+2 apartment and it was good. All amenities working properly such as a/c, heater, kitchen corner. Food was ok even if breakfast variety may be improved. It's definitely a perfect location to visit the region and I highly suggest it to couples as well as to families.

We did not stay here, but it looks absolutely charming, a wonderfully restored old stone house.
But we did wander in one afternoon by accident, starving and a bit tired after a long drive. It was heaven.
We sat out on the open air terrace and had a lovely local white wine. Then we had a wonderful fresh salad with home made bread, and then an omelet with truffles and pasta with truffles. The food was absolutely terrific and one of the best meals we had on a 3 week trip.
This is a restaurant that is definitely worth a stop if you are touring around Istria.In fact I would plan the entire day around a brunch/lunch or dinner stop here.
The owner is charming and friendly and provides excellent service.
While not inexpensive, it is definitely worth every penny, just sit back and luxuriate in the setting and the food and the charm. We did.

The Baladura is absolutely fab. It's about 8 miles inland from Rovinj, in a very rural situation. Easy to get to, quite near a road, but this is not in any way intrusive. A beautiful range of buildings, excellently presented & finished. Very nice people, friendly & helpful. The owner lives in a cottage, which is part of Baladura. Very spcious and well kitted apartments. Lovely terraces, places to sit and pool. A brilliant restaurant, very good food. Great walks around and about. Villages and lots to see nearby. Rovinj is an easy drive (it's fab too).

Overall this is about as good as it gets, if you want peace, good service & surroundings, a lovely place nearby and more. No village or town within walking distance, so you need a car, but it's easy.

We spent a week there and loved it.
