All-inclusive Resort Funtana
Ranked #4 of 7 Hotels in Vrsar
Reviewed 9 August 2014

This resort is great for an all inclusive cheap break, I have been on many all inclusive including cruises and I can say this is the first time I've not been fed up with the variety offered, , the sports facilities are great and despite being the first week of August not overcrowded, a word of warning is bring river/sea shoes as the coast line is very rocky with a sharply pebbles small beach, although the water is extremely calm. The hotel is a bit stuck in the 80's although not terrible, the evening entertainment is not what the british are used to, in fact there where only two British family's here which is not always such a bad thing. My biggest moan of the entire place has to be the seagulls, these monsters drive us crazy, the hotel seems to think it is acceptable to let them roost on one of the three apartment blocks, as I write this from my balcony I can count 200+ gulls on the roofs opposite, they are extremely noisy at all hours and will wake you at 6am every morning, there are a million other places for them to roost and the hotel should do something about this, it was by far the biggest disturbing factor of the holiday. If you book be sure not to get the end. Block painted green!!
All in all we would come back but probably stay in porec about 10k up the road

Room Tip: Avoid third green apartments due to seagulls

Booked this All Inclusive hotel as a late deal, having booked flights to Pula first.
The location looked good and it seemed good value for money for a family of four.
The hotel is made up of four blocks of rooms. We stayed in block 1, rooms 172 & 174 which overlooked the tennis courts and the pool restaurant.
The two rooms had an interconnecting door between them, so it was ideal for me and my wife in the double and our kids in the twin next door. This mean't we had two balconies, two bathrooms and a TV each.
The rooms were clean and a reasonable size, but just a little bit basic and a little dated.
Food and drink was freely available all day and most of the night, both in the main restaurants and in the 'Fresh Corner' bar and restaurant near the pool. Food was good quality, fresh and there was plenty of it.
It didn't matter to us so much, but during the week we seemed to be the only Brits, so our kids didn't have other British kids to make friends with. The majority of the guests being German, Austrian, Dutch and Slovenian.
The All Inclusive deal includes free sports, including tennis, mini-golf, bikes, table tennis, canoes, pedalo's & trampolines.
The staff were great and looked after us very well indeed. We enjoyed our stay and think it is a good hotel. We had a hire car & so often drove the 6 miles or so to Porec in the evening.

We took five day HB package through "1nadan" system of holliday offers. Because of very low prize of the package, we did not expect high level of service,but all our stay was pleasant surprise:small, but comfortable and clean room with AC and safe, balcony with sea view, good food and very, very friendly staff.
Hotel is also bikers friendly and they stored our bikes for free. There are many nice biking trails starting from the hotel and hiking pathways along the sea. Picturesque villages Funtana and Vrsar are just few meters and two kilometers away. Hotel also arranges various excursions by land and sea.Famous Limski fjord is just few miles away.

We stayed here for 2 weeks. The hotel is big but more attractive than many of those we saw locally. The rooms are without frills but are clean with comfortable beds, air con, tv (but no English channels) and balconies most of which have a wonderful view of the sea. There is a full entertainment programme with excellent staff who speak English, French, German and Italian as well as Croatian. Every evening there was live music/bingo/magic show. Our son was the only British child there but he made some lovely friends and was quite comfortable joining in with the kids' entertainments due to the proficiency of the staff. He spent much of the time by the sea crabbing and snorkelling. The hotel was right by the sea, most of the coast here is rock and some small pebbly bays but the swimming platforms have steps to the sea. For this reason I would say that it may not be the most appropriate location for small children. The staff in the hotel were very good. Antonio and Maja in the restaurant deserve special mentions. The breakfasts were great with plenty of choice. Evening meals could've been better but there was plenty of choice with salads, pasta and/or risotto, 3 types of meat, one fish and veg bread etc although sometimes it was a bit canteeny! However, for us this was a relatively cheap deal and we found it good value for money. Water is around £2.50 for a litre bottle in the restaurant but a glass of nice wine is under £1. Funtana village is very small with a nice marina but there are buses to Vrsar and Porec, both of which are worth a visit. However, if you could have a car at this location I would recommend it. If you are looking for a relaxing inexpensive holiday in a cosmopolitan location this is for you.

Great holiday destination, great accommodation! The apartment was basic but clean and had extra's that we didn't expect such as free hair dryer, air con and safe in room. Also hand soap dispenser over sink and hair & body wash in shower (the fragrance wasn't bad either) Nice balcony with sea view, we were in room 202, colour coded building blue which is quieter because it is away fom the pool and evening entertainment area, the green building is even quieter. Breakfast was fab, buffet style with plenty of choice from cereal to bread, cheese and meat (if you want that type of thing) and everything inbetween. Pool side restaurant did lovely pizza's for lunch and a glass of small house wine was only 7.50kuna (90p)! No beach just grass, soil and shingle with area's of paved sea front but beautiful sea right in front of you. Supermarket, 2 min walk away, cheap wine but horrible staff (didn't like us english)! Funtana itself is a small village with many restaurant's/grills but none of them very romantic, all reasonably priced, for a great romantic day/eve try Rovinj, 30min drive away, however be aware taxi's are expensive (850Kuna return) and buses are practically non existent. If you don't have a transfer to the hotel book a taxi with Istria tours (600Kuna return) which is a bargain! The hotel was busy with families but they were not loud and generally children were very well behaved, it didn't spoil it for us as a couple in our early 30's.
