Hotel Istra, Rovinj, Croatia

Relaxation area in the spa at Hotel Istra.Relaxation area in the spa at Hotel Istra.

Following a half hour drive from the airport, plus a 15-minute boat ride from Rovinj on mainland Croatia, Hotel Istra is set on the pedestrianised island of St Andrea. All of which makes this a great option when travelling with young kids.

Children get a choice of freshwater and saltwater swimming pools, with the main pool nearby so you can keep an eye on them. There is also a free kids’ club with organised morning and afternoon sessions for babies through to teens. In addition, there is a playground and soft play area whilst the older ones may want to try out their tennis skills on the choice of grass and clay courts. As a family you can even hire some bikes to explore the traffic-free island or the hotel hires out boats so you can take a picnic out to sea and see the island from another perspective.

You will dine here on a half board basis, with some fantastic restaurant options including an à la carte seafood restaurant and a buffet if the family want a little variation to meal times.
