Reviewed 27 July 2014

We only wanted to stay one night to kind of test the waters. As we hadn't been to Croatia before and weren't sure how driving there was going to be we took it slow and got there long before the sun went down. The Hotel is beautiful, just a short walk to town where there are plenty of restaurants and things to see.

We booked a room with sea view, got a view of our neighbours across the reception area, had to crane neck over balcony to see the boats in the Marina, but not the sea! Minus No. 1.

Trying to feel your way around the corridors before the sensor lights switched on and trying to find something in your hotel room in the dark and dreary lighting, difficult, Minus No. 2.

Paying €20 per night for a dog when the rooms weren't even properly cleaned very day in any event - Minus point 3.

Boring breakfast - Minus point 4.

Noise in the early morning (6am or earlier) from cleaning and other staff outside reception area - Minus point 5.

Super staff - Plus 1

Great Pool - Plus 2 (although if its full with kids not so lovely)

Great location - walking distance to centre, walking distance to very pleasant pebble beach, situation on the Marina - Plus 3.

Free parking - Plus 4

All in all a good place to stay, especially if you like checking out the boats and better still the selection of top range cars in the parking lot!!!

Room Tip: Ask for one fully facing the Marina, not one facing the Reception area, its so damn noisy in the mor...

We stayed 2 nights in hotel during the May holidays. Our room was located on hotel side with poor natural light(+bad wheather) and we asked to replace the room. They gave us new room with plenty natural light. Staff at the reception desk is great and they all get a big + for hospitality. Wellnes center is small but very intimate and there we spent a lot of time because the wheather was bad.
Our stay at the hotel was short but very pleasant.
We will come back, hopefully soon.

We spent two days in Novigrad in mid-February and despite bad wheather (no sun at all, and that is not common there at all), it was very nice weekend. Four-and-a-half stars would be the most appropriate to give as far as we are concerned, but since it is not possible we rate it rather five than four.
Hotel is very nice, with large and lovely rooms, and situated perfectly. It is within walking distance from the town centre and we really took advantage of it. Staff at the reception desk is just amazing and Eduard (sorry about forgetting other names) did excellent job. Thank you once again.
Food in the restaurant was rather good, but it was strange that there was constant lack of certain types of food and guests had to wait to get fresh food, both in the morning and in the evening. Again, staff was very good.
Indoor pool is large enough, it was never overcrowded. Spa area is small but very nice and it was good experience sharing it with very polite guests from (mainly) Slovenia and Croatia, who followed the spa rules. We were unfortunate though to be in the hotel along with some 14-16 years old football kids from Austria who really gave us some hard time. But it was again staff from the reception desk who handled the situation and we received apology from coach, so it was fine after all. But we would suggest to raise age level eligible to enter Spa premises, as well as some (at least small) reception desk there, if possible. The only person at the hotel we were not satisfied with was lady who was supposed to take care about Spa. She acted like she did not care: there was three-years old kid in the jacuzzi and she just passed by; water tank was empty but she just passed by; while she did massage she must have heard huge noise from little footballers and she never came to either ask them to be quiet or go out (both would be the best). It was all sorted out again by staff from the reception desk.
Will we come back? No doubt about it, hopefully soon.

We were just a few days before Valentines day with our son (5 months). We needed a vacation real bad and decided for Hotel Nautica and haven't regret it. Room was superior and looked like it.
King size bed and kinderbed with enormous bathroom and large balcony. The temperature of the room was 27C the whole time which was convenient because of the baby. Staff at the reception were very helpful and very nice and trying to make our stay as pleasurable as possible. Restaurant staff was professional and very polite. Food was excellent, very big variety for breakfast and delicious dinner. The spa area is clean, tidy and has everything you need for whole spa relaxation. There is also a kids pool with all of the necessary equipment.
All in all we highly recommend it for every type of vacation and for every type of people, and would love to come again soon

Room Tip: Superior rooms are fantastic.

Hotel Nautica is very good located hotel, with great seaside view, foot distance to Novigrad old town centre, with all needed infrastructure - good wellness and pool. We had very nice short winter vacation there, cycling rare traffic Istrian roads. Weather can be very mild, appropriate for cycling and running. If it's cold, you have sauna and high commodity room :)

We were here in december on cristmass day (3 days) and it was a super vacation. The acomodation (rooms and bathroom) are big, very nice and clean. Restaurant is excellent, breakfast and dinner very tasty, really great food. The personnel are very polite, professional and performing work perfectly. Spa is small but beautiful and mostly silent, a great place to relax. We are planning another visit in February.
