What a find

Review of Villa Marea
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 23 May 2016via mobile
Fabulous place, quite new I think. Studio apartment nice and big. Kitchenette. Asked for kettle and iron and got them, so nice cup of tea first thing. Free tea and coffee available. Breakfast nice and filling. The people looking after us were so polite. The apartment is a pleasant 10 minute walk away from a lovely beach. Town a bit away but didn't really bother us. Well worth a visit .

If you don't want to be in the old-town center, this is an excellent choice. Previous reviews cover it all:
-- friendly staff
-- great breakfast and coffee machine available whenever
-- 5 to 10 minute walk to a nice spot for sun/swim
-- comfortable rooms, quiet location, small kitchen was great, balcony a plus
-- parking on site
-- grocery and a couple of good restaurants very close

The Walk: Bear in mind that it is quite a walk to the old-town center. 20-30 minutes just to the edge, more to get into the rabbit-warren that is old Rovinj. And as has been noted, parking closer is on a par with my home city of San Francisco, that is, tough. Much of it is the blue-lined paid parking at about a buck an hour. There are some side streets just off the paid stuff that are the white, free, parking, but you have to get lucky. Cuts the walk by about 2/3 for those who have mobility issues.

Villa Marea was a lovely place to stay in a charming little town. Exactly as billed, the rooms were spotless, the staff courteous, and the pool refreshing. The short walk to the beach was really nice. Parking was easy, too.

Room tip: Front facing rooms get afternoon sun.

We really liked it here. Stayed with extended family in four rooms. Pool is small but nice. The area is very residential but a nice well to do area so you are surrounded by lovely villas and it's very quiet. 20 min walk into Rovinj and we got taxis back which were about £5. The restaurants nearby Giovanni's we really liked too and it was great value there. I would certainly stay here again.

The staff are really helpful and the breakfast, although repetitive, is really nice. Maid service is every day (unusual for self catering) and clean towels every other day. Loved it.

We arrived for our 2 week stay and were greeted by the lovely Ines on reception. We were immediately made to feel extremely welcome and were offered tea/coffee whilst our room was being prepared as we did arrive slightly earlier than expected. The apartments offer fantastic customer service and both Dujliano and Ines are so helpful and are happy to recommend places to eat and visit.

Check in was efficient and we were provided with a map of the local area and Rovinj to help familiarise ourselves with local amenities including the supermarket which was a 5 minute walk.

We had booked a studio apartment for 2 adults and found the room to be spacious, extremely clean and perfect for our requirements. The studio benefited from a good sized bathroom, flat screen tv, dining table and good kitchen facilities. The balcony was sunny and actually larger than expected from images we had seen prior to our stay. The rooms were well insulated and no noise from the outside.

We paid for breakfast on most days and was a good selection of continental options, eggs, toast, breads, fruit and a selection of yoghurts and cereals - a very good selection and regularly topped up as required. Alternatively the nearby supermarket is excellent and offers everything you would required.

The pool is immaculately kept with decking and ample sun loungers - we never had an issue getting a sun lounger as most guests go to the beach.

The walk to the beach is around 5-10 minutes and a pleasant break from the heat. Bikes can be hired from the hotel for 60 Kunas per day.

Rovinj town is around 15-20 minutes walk depending on the route taken and is a safe and pleasant walk. Ask the staff and they are more than happy to assist. Parking in town is on the outskirts of town so generally easier to walk unless guests have walking difficulties. The town has a huge selection of cafes, restaurants and bars so lots to choose from.

Overall a fantastic stay and we look forward to visiting again in the near future.

The owners arranged the Airport transfers for us with Central Tour based in the town and cost 60 euros each way.

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.
