Our 3 generation family group of 5, including a 2 year old, have recently returned from a great 10 night stay in the Amarin Hotel. This hotel is truly child centred in design and many thoughtful features serve to make a stay with a baby, toddler or older child a stress-free experience. Our first floor rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable with a fantastic view over the gardens to the sea. The large area of hotel grounds is planted with low level flowers, herbs and grasses which provide amazing scents. We loved the area of pebble beach and the sea, although very cold, is crystal clear. Late in the season the outdoor pools were also cold but their design and layout are fantastic and we appreciated the warm baby/toddler pool with fountains and cover for sun protection. The indoor pools are fantastic - the best we have experienced in any hotel. Food at all meals is of high quality and plentiful with a good variety of dishes. The main restaurant is a spacious and pleasant space. The staff were attentive and worked extremely hard. Activities available for children of all ages are great. While our 2 year old didn’t attend sessions with staff, he especially loved the imaginative play equipment in the grounds, hiring a trike, the children’s gym, the nets in Reception and the evening cartoons. Finally a word on location. The hotel is about 4km around the bay from the beautiful town of Rovinj. It is a pleasant path and road walk, taking about 45 minutes. But the shuttle bus and water taxi service are also frequent and convenient, so trips further afield are possible using these facilities and then public transport from Rovinj. We realise our visit was end of season, in school term time and that fewer people are travelling due to Covid restrictions. So we had the benefit of a relatively uncrowded hotel with mainly babies and toddlers rather than older children racing around! Thank you for a memorable stay enjoyed by all.

Hotel's Favourite
Amazing staff, good food, tons of stuff for kids (our son loves this place), nice spa and great gym. This year, they added a new beach which is really nice (it is still a stone beach, no sand, but it is still great). We’re regulars here and is our favorite place to stay in Croatia. People here are super professional. An advice for smaller families...do upgrade to Grand a Room, it is worth it. It is big with great view. Once a Covid is gone, do book in advance, this place gets sold out well before season. Few improvement areas : - parking would be an issue if not for Covid. This needs to be fixed before next season. - pool and beach crew is not too proactive and something downright rude...total opposite to folks in kids’ club or at reception - pool bar closes at 6 PM, that is a shame, way too early - a refresh (repair and repaint) would be good after 4 years - elevators can be annoying - whomever designed this place made a major error by having only 3 elevators - be ready to wait Ask for higher floor...elevator wait will be longer but view and experience are better.

Watch out: 90% of Covid Measures advertised on their website are NOT being followed We found the previous occupants‘ socks in the wardrobe, food leftovers in the drawers, the room service found other people‘s things like toys, hair ties etc. mid-stay, the shower was not cleaned of obvious dirt smears, the toilet had brown stains - and reception was not at all interested. That said: The beautifully landscaped gardens are amazing. All kinds of playgrounds you can think of and imaginative educational path. pool chilly Buffet variety - BUT 2 people in our family got food poisoning

Lieber Gast, es freut uns sehr, dass Sie unsere Gäste waren und hoffen Sie hatten eine schöne Zeit in unserem Hotel. Die Sicherheit unserer Gäste ist für uns am wichtigsten und deshalb halten wir alle gesetzlich vorgegebenen Corona Maßnahmen ein und haben zum Schutz unserer kleinen Gäste noch zusätzliche Maßnahmen eingeführt und diese werden wie auf unserer Homepage angegeben auch zu 100% erfüllt. Diese werden auch von den zuständigen Behörden kontrolliert. Es ist doch sehr verwunderlich das Sie im Laufe ihres 7 tägigen Aufenthaltes in unserem Hotel sich bezüglich ihrer Anmerkungen an niemanden gewandt haben. Denn in diesem Fall hätten wir dies natürlich sofort überprüft und dem entsprechend reagiert, so dass Sie einen angenehmen Aufenthalt gehabt hätten. Die Zufriedenheit unserer Gäste ist für uns am wichtigsten und deshalb hätten wir auch alles getan um eventuelle Fehler sofort zu beheben. Wir haben ein strenges HACCAP System und es ist auch zu keiner Lebensmittelvergiftung in unserem Hotel gekommen und man sollte mit solchen Anschuldigungen doch sehr vorsichtig umgehen, denn diese können auch Folgen haben. Wir stehen unseren Gästen immer für alle Informationen, Anregungen und Anmerkungen gerne zur Verfügung. Mit sonnigen und freundlichen Grüßen aus Rovinj Ivanka Ajlec, Hoteldirektorin & Ihr Amarin Team

Stayed here for 2 weeks with daughter, son in law and their 2 boys aged 12 and 9. Definitely not a hotel for people without children because the place was full of them, mainly quite young. Lovely extensive grounds leading down to the pebble beach where the water was really clear. Plenty of sun loungers around the grounds, on the beach (free for hotel guests) and around the pool areas. Pool/beach towels could be changed daily, no charge. Room was very clean, cleaners worked hard. Safe was free. Air con was really good. Lovely view from balcony across towards the sea. Tables in restaurant well spaced. Masks had to be worn there and around the hotel. Excellent choice of food at all meal times, replenished as needed and well presented. The fruits and salads were delicious and we loved the roast joints of meat and great fish too. Selection could not be faulted. Unusually for Europe, the desserts were as delicious as they looked. We were disappointed that our favourite drink of Bacardi was not served in the hotel bar or the hotel bars on the beach, but enjoyed the cocktails. Staff in hotel bar were very good - friendly and quick to serve, especially Romario. Unfortunately there was very limited evening entertainment provided for adults, just occasional music acts at one of the beach bars. Also, limited entertainment for older children. Disappointed too at lack of games and activities in the pools. We did all enjoy the film show on the beach one night, and free popcorn went down well. Very little in the vicinity of hotel and too far to walk into Rovinj. However the hotel provided a free shuttle bus into the town- though on one occasion we waited in vain for a bus back to the hotel and ended up getting a taxi. Water taxis were also available nearby at small charge.

Overall this hotel is amazing if you have kids - that’s the bottom line. Literally everything is for them and they have thought of small little things everywhere. You will not be disappointed on that front. Our little one was just under 2 when we went and he loved the indoor warm pool with the slide and outdoor slides too (quite nippy so can’t stay in too long) and all the play equipment around the place (slides etc) the beach is pebbly so some jelly shoes are a must and a little padded beach mat thing for them to sit and play on. Food selection is really good and laid out very well, very good quality kids high chairs etc. Rooms - we had a standard family room which is small, I would not recommend if you had to have 2 cots in there but for one it’s absolutely fine and enough to move around. Lots of storage so you can chuck things away. We actually asked to upgrade (at cost) but the hotel was fully booked and it actually was as you can see by the balconies, shows how popular this place is. One thing that is lacking is somewhere for the adults at night time as there is just one small bar by reception and then the other place you can go is right by the sea but it’s more for food not night time drinks with some music etc. it is in the middle of no where so you can’t walk into Rovinij but there is a boat taxi from the pier or reception will order you a normal taxi. Unfortunately two downsides were that we had left my toddlers cutlery at breakfast and it was thrown away so that was a shame and, on the last day we got very violently ill and hotel confirmed there was a norovirus outbreak. It’s not their fault as comes with territory of kids hotel and they do clean very well but still but a big downer on last day so just be careful and wash everything! We will definitely come back from our toddler is 4 plus as then there is even more activities for them to enjoy.
