                The location was very good and the sea water which is very clean and warm is definitely a big advantage.

                The reception staff members show inappropriate and disrespectful behaviour. And generally the staff sometimes have an ignoring and inattentive attitude. The other disturbing thing was the noisy and agressive cleaning of the breakfast leftovers right in front of the other clients who still continued eating. The sight of the left food being thrown into rubbish bins is a very non-apetising experience. The breakfast choice is poor as well.

                the island is beautiful with lots of beaches.

                The hotel staff are rude and unprofessional.We had mold on the ceiling in the shower. The place is very institutional. Rooms are Ikea. It's not a place you want to stay and hang out in. No info before we arrived as to where to find the ferry dock and parking. it's like they took an old hotel and did a DIY renovation with paint and Ikea.

                We were surrounded by the sea, yet at the same time we enjoyed the full comfort of the hotel, its swimming pools, bars, end restaurants. The Lanterna restaurant in the old castle nearby offers the best sea-food and other specialities, more over we were served there by the superbly trained waiters, who speak at least four languages. Running around the island in the morning was very enjoyable, and swimming in the clean sea water just perfect way to relax and feel good.

                The St. Andrew island and Hotel Istra are still a hidden jewel at the Mediterranean coast. We spent ten fantastic days at the island in August/September, and this might be one the best vacations that we ever had. Mornings at the balcony with the undisturbed view at the town of Rovinj over the pristinely clean Adriatic sea are just irreplaceable. The hotel staff is very friendly and easy going, so that one does not feel like at the tourists farm. At the same time, they took care of all our needs and wishes. The boat transportation is organized perfectly well, so we could go to Rovinj whenever we wanted and with absolutely no hassle. The 15 minutes sailing was always a pleasant addition to the overall experience.

                The location is amazing. This is the best place for a family!! The animation and sports staff were so fun! My daughter loved the kids club. She stayed there everyday for 2 hours, so mom and dad could have adult time! She said it was her favorite thing about the vacation;)The food in Laterna, Lantana, and the pizzeria were delicious, the best steak and beer ever. The spa was so relaxing too, we were the only ones in there. They offered a wide variety of sports and boat rentals too. We took a canoe around the islands-gorgeous. We stayed 5 nights and had no reason to leave the island! If you stay longer, you may want to do some day excursions. I give our vacation in Croatia a 10!

                Our air conditioner and refrigerator didn't work the first night. They fixed them the next day. I'm American, and I like my ice! No ice for the in-room drinks or the cooler. I asked the front desk if we needed reservations for the restaurant and she said no. That was not true. They fill up quickly so make a reservation! You can go early in the day and pick out the best table and reserve it!!

                Nothing...

                I cannot understand all the positive reviews... The hotel was far too expensive for what was offered. Staying on the Island is a handicap : always wait for the boat (once every hour), parking 1,5km from the harbour so again wait for the shuttle, extremely noisy : too much people, rooms extremely noisy and hardly isolated, when you want a place at the pool you have to wake up at 6 am, breakfast was the worst I ever had, staff couldn't care less about the guests. We went afterwards to a Kempinsky which was cheaper (!!!)

                9.2

                - indoor and outdoor pools, location of the hotel, free parking on the mainland, free deck chairs by the pools with umbrellas

                - A/C in the gym was not working; no free wifi; too many children (jumping in the pools, taking lilos in the pools); food ok but not as good as in Valamar Diamant Porec (also a 4* facility nearby in Istria)

                The position and the hotel facilities and the restaurant by the hotel and on the other island. Fabulous place!

                The breakfast is a bit of a scrum and very noisey-not a very relaxing experience and not in keping with the rest of the hotel although the food is still good.

              • Group of friends
                7.4

                Clean hotel with nice but average rooms in an excellent rocky beach location. Lovely views all around. Islands good for walking or jogging around. Excellent standard of food served in restaurants although cannot comment on half-board evening meals. Ferry always runs on time.

                Swimming pool crowded with children. No adult only pool. Lack of sunbeds and parasols which you need to reserve by 6.30am or you won't get one! Hotel staff do not attempt to stop this practice so sunbeds remain empty most of the day with just towels on them! Rocky beaches are not suitable for small children. Restaurant in the castle is very expensive. No facility to breakfast outside. Small shower enclosures. Small balconies. You need to queue for at least twenty minutes to get on the ferry in busy periods. Hotel guests do not get priority boarding over day trippers on the ferry.
