Our experience lived up to everything that was advertised about this resort. We asked for sea view when booking and got a sea view while there are many apartments which do not have this. Our room was well furnished with a small but useful fridge (which is not mentioned in the room description). Air conditioning was intelligent and worked only when the balcony doors were closed. Breakfasts were superb - most other places after several days the choice becomes repetitive - here there is a huge selection to choose from. Staff were always smiling, polite and helpful. Location is ideal for an evening leisurely stroll - 700meters to Vrsar which is beautiful. Overall all our stay exceeded our expectations - well done.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view if you want it. Forget about internet - even if you buy a local sim card the signal...

Service o the rooms, buffet breakfast and dinner were great only thing I wouldnt recomment is to go to the restaurant on the beach - they are expensive and specially rude (dont even want to know how is in season time). They take only croatian money and what is most important even if it was not high season prices are quit high (restaurant, bike rent, etc...).

One thing I was missing is as well free WiFi for such a 4* place they shouldnt definitily not charge it.

But beach place is really nice, view from our window was directly on see surronded with pines, not crouded... just since its everything so together dont wanna know how is it in big season...crouded as hell probably :)

Room Tip: try with getting F229 - 240 rooms... they are at the end of the resort with nice see view

We've just came back home after 8 fantastic days in Petalon.
It was really relaxing and peaceful holiday. We stayed at A3 apartment house. Everything was new, clean and well-done. My official thanks to hotel management about type of bed and linen. All dreams were charming!
Air conditioner was excellent and quiet (every room has own temperature mode). Our building block was located 30 m from open pool, but no screams, no loud music after 21.00. It was really quiet relax!
The sea was 50-60 m only and we were listening music of sea waves and pine trees.
It was a good bonus - lavander and rosemary which were located near apartments. My wife cured her cough within 8 days.
The buffet breakfast was rich (with a lot fruits, vegatables, sweets). Sport service was great (we rented bikes and water catamaran with fair rates (prices).
Unfortunately, we didn't have sea view (as A3 located at the 2 line), but it was 60 m to sea side and we spent all days outdoor.
I put 4 rate instead of 5 by the reason of reception service only (I sent request about sea view and location of our building 1 week before our visit, I've done it 2 times, but no reply). It was not polite to keep silence.
All others were great!
P.S Petalon is a good option for naturism holiday as major naturist centre 'Koversada' is located neighbourly.
You can stay in Petalon and sunbath in Koversada.

Apartment house was very clean, towels changed daily, like nice 4* hotel.

Comments...
...kitchen / living room is incredibly small so 4 adults and 2 youngsters would barely fit in at once and have some reasonable conversation or playing board games etc. (forget about cooking anyway)
...ANTS on the kitchen cabinet (housekeeper left us with a anti-ants spray)
...beach is no-good for little kids (1.5 years in our case) - only concrete and big rocks; we had to walk some 15 minutes to get to very small (=very overcrowded) beach of gravel sand.
...half of the area is prohibited to enter - it is a naturist beach
...pool was OK but although we were at the end of season it was cramped with people (don't forget you pay extra for deckchairs and sunshades)
...we had no view to the sea, on the other hand were very close to get there.
...amenities for little kids are quite weak

Note: Due to bad weather we left earlier without any issues (we paid only for the days which we stayed - booked through booking.com) but for 2 days they were not able to tell us if that is OK or not (after 2 days some supervisor finally came and solved it).

Overall, may be good for short stay without kids. Not so good for families. Oh, and be ready there is not much to do in Vrsar, have your car ready to travel to Porec and Rovinj for sightseeing and good restaurants.
