Just returned from a weeks stay at the Hotel Istra (22nd-29th).
Very Clean and comfortable hotel and complex. We enjoyed the idyllic island location, which was a 20 minute boat trip from Rovinj( shuttle service all day) and would love to return sometime but not for the food or entertainment which were both mediocre and lowered the four star rating.
TRAVELLERS BE WARNED!!! If you intend to stay the last week in June there is an annual Salsa pool party on the last Sunday of the month, which is arranged for the general public. This year 1500 people arrived on the island and completely took over all the pool side facilities, including both children’s pools and outside eating areas. These 1500 people acted as if on an 18-30 holiday, drinking heavily, resulting in some being found passed out on sunbeds and quayside, and with some couples displaying behavior inappropriate for a family hotel. The management, although aware of previous paying guests complaints, seem to think its of no consequence and little inconvenience.
