Review of Villa Marea
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 Jul 2015
We stayed two nights with our lovely and friendly hosts at Villa Marea. Everyone always greeted us with a smile and was helpful in offering restaurant and sightseeing information. The suites are very spacious and include a small but efficient kitchen, a balcony, AC, and a nice size bathroom. Bikes are available to rent to pedal to the beach and around Rovinj. My husband loved the bike but I preferred walking round trip into Rovinj via the luxury hotel route along the beach and by the marina. The villa is not located in Rovinj proper but in a lovely area with other residences and villa rentals about a 20 minute walk from the city center. There is parking in Rovinj but it is hard to grab a spot in the very crowded tourist season so walking and biking worked out great. Breakfast was complete with a coffee machine that made several types of coffee by the single serving, yogurts, eggs, etc. One could dine inside or outside. Last but not least, the pool was delightfully cold after a hot day walking around. I would highly recommend Villa Marea and the staff. Thank you again for making our group feel so welcome.

Beautiful villa, a bit outside the Rovinj old town, in a nice are of villas. Actually, it takes 20 minutes of walk to the old town, but only 5 minutes to lovely Cuvi beach. The villa is beautiful. Our room was at the ground level, big and clean, good bathroom and nice terrace surrounded by trees and flowers. Very, very pleasant. The villa also has a nice – though not big – swimming pool. The breakfast was also good, with good selection of food that we enjoyed at the restaurant, sitting outside. The staff very friendly and efficient.

We stayed here just for a night, but rooms were nice, clean. Location is perfect for people who what to enjoy the beach. The pool is a lot smaller than it looks on the picture, but as it's less than 10 min walk from the beach, it's not really needed. Room had kitchen, but we didn't use it. We walked to the center around 15 min for dinner. This city is not our cup of coffee as it's very touristy, but as it's beach town, it was expected.

We had a lovely stay at Villa Marea in September. We had a studio apartment on the ground floor with a balcony facing the garden, it was very quiet and private. The studio was spotless with a small kitchenette with everything you need and a spacious shower room. The walk into Rovinj only took about 20 minutes which we would do every evening to eat and was a very pleasant walk. We were made to feel very welcome at Villa Marea and would stay there again when in Rovinj.

A warm welcome from the owner greeted us when we arrived at the Villa Marea which is a pretty building, tastefully furnished and decorated, in a fairly residential and quiet area. The room/apartment was beautifully and tastefully furnished and absolutely spotlessly clean. We had the facilities to cook if we wanted to with all the cutlery and crockery necessary for two people. There was a lovely balcony and chairs and views over the traditional orange roofs to Rovinj cathedral itself. Hotel Marea is very well placed with a 10/15 minute walk to the stunning beach (plenty of cafes there) and local shops. We caught a taxi into town as my husband has limited walking ability but were advised it was only a 20 minute walk. The owner and his wife were smiling, welcoming, friendly and helpful. The breakfast had a wide choice on offer including scambled egg, bacon, hot pancakes, choice of breakfast cereals, fruit and yoghurt. Also coffee and a variety of teas available. Little touches like herbs on the tomatoes made it extra special. We stayed here for two nights and would definitely recommend it. There seemed to be full occupancy which is a reflection of how well they are, deservedly, doing. We got a shake of the hand from the owner as we left and went on our way congratulating ourselves on a very good choice of resting place.

Room tip: Our room was up two flights of (not steep/not many steps) stairs so would recommend a ground floor room if you have real problem with stairs.

Very nice people running the place, always happy to help you with anything you might need. Clean and nice rooms, at very high standards. Breakfast very good!!! 5 minutes walk to the beach, and the extremely nice bike track to Rovinj. Dont miss it!!! Unfortunately all bikes were rented out when we visited the hotel, but we just walked down to the beach bar and spoke to Luke, who rented us bikes. Not as nice as the ones from Marea, but the brand of the legendary Gary Fisher:-) Walking distance to town is about 20 minutes, and 5 minutes by bike! Small but nice pool in the garden, with sunbeds and umbrellas.
