Weve visited three times now and continue to enjoy every stay. We had a lovely room overlooking the bay and small linked island. Views are tremendous from the island and because of island nature, feels relaxing and exclusive. The boat journey linking guests to the mainland is a pleasure in itself and it runs evry half hour from dawn til midnight allowing guests to have a night out in Rovinj. Rooms are pleasant with a tv if you need one! Nice to watch the BBC news before breakfast though. Meals are buffet style, slightly German orientated, but of a good standard. We ate out two nights as its such good value on the mainland and a lot more atmospheric than a hotel grand buffet. Wifi is free now in the lobby area. The only downside is if you want to eat lunch on the island and just fancy a sandwich, which most people do after a hearty breakfast, there is very limited choice. There is a pizza restaurant which is great, but if you want something simpler its a choice of cheese toasties or a ham baguette. Definitely room for improvement here, especially with a captured audience. Also, one small point, when asking about fillings at the sandwich bar, we were often given a grisly, thunder faced reception. This was noted by many guests. I know there sometimes can be a language communication issue, but there is no doubt that some personalities at the sandwich bar need softening a little. There was one exception, which was a small dark haired girl who smiled all the time.
Still, it fails to disappoint and succeeds in wanting you to return, year after year. We would recommend thoroughly.
