Food was all self-service and the quality was excellent with great variety.
Good location and we had rooms at the front of the hotel overlooking the harbour. However, no air-conditioning meant we slept with the windows open and the fan (provided free) on. Beneath our window was one of the many cafes which was noisy well into the night. No "rowdies" just people on holiday enjoying themselves. The bins on the harbour side are emptied at 05:30 every morning!
A room safe was provided free.
The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
Entertainment was limited to the "Croatian Evening" when a folk group played for us. This did not bother us as we don't go on holiday for hotel entertainment.
British guests were outnumbered about 10 to 1 by Germans.

The hotel location was excellent, plenty of boat trips to different places, the Noddy train was very good value and it went to some lovely beach areas. The bus service was very limited though, check the timetable before you go anywhere.
The entertainment in the evenings was quite limited, if we hadn't met some lovely people it would have been a bit boring as they only had a resident band a couple of evenings a week.
We would go again but request a sea view.

The rooms however were pokey, and lacked air conditioning. but always kept clean. We had trouble with our window, which didn't lock properly, after reporting the problem to the reception desk and the rep, someone came to fix it, however it was not fixed throughout the whole week.
Hotel food was excellent, this I wouldn't fault. Fresh fish, allsorts of meat, correctly cooked veg (not soggy) and nice mini cakes for afters. There were freshfruit and salad bar too.
A word of warning though, the Hotel was over run with german guests, who in their nature push infront of you in ques and who are seemingly bad mannered. The hotel and staff appear to cater for the germans on the whole. This can be a bit intimidating.
entertainment????? - What entertainment?!
The hotel is located on St. Nicholas Island, you have to get a ferry to the mainland, ensure you check the timetables, it can be over 30 mins wait if you miss it. Again the German guests like to be on the boat first.

The food is diverse and plentiful.. we stayed for two weeks and weren't bored with it.
Themed evening once a week was good but apart from the band on Sat/Sun evening this was the sum total of entertainment.
I had a room with a balcony and would agree it was worth the extra for the views of the harbour and peninsula. It was lovely in the morning watching the boats go out packed full of tourist on their day trips to Rovinj.
Rooms are basic though and a bit of colour might brighten them up.
