We stayed in one of the apartments, which was very spacious with comfy beds and a sea view. Wifi was really good. Whilst it was clean enough, it was not up to standards as there were spiders and cobwebs, and the bathroom was not spotless. Hairdryer was also broken. The maid service only came twice a week which was not good, especially when you want bathroom towels changed.

It became apparent on arrival that this resort was very busy. The hotel is part of a huge campsite, and the campers can use the facilities. As a result the pool area, and some of the beach was far too overcrowded. You also have to pay for sun loungers and parasols (20 -30 kuna each).

We stayed half board, breakfast was great, lots of choice but can get busy later on. Upset there were no baked beans on offer. The dinner buffet was also great and good quality. However, there were only 2 waiters able to take order for drinks which causes quite a delay. On one occasion we did not receive water until we had finished dessert!

The sea was super clear and is perfect for snorkelling as there are lots of fish to see. Vrsar itself is quite small but great if you don't want an over-commercialised town. There are also lots of trips available to nearby Rovinj and Porec.

Overall, this hotel was very good with brilliant views and lovely clear seas to explore. Food was great, and lots of sports activities, only main downsides were the crowding and infrequent maid service.

Pro: We had a beautiful seaview from our room. Breakfast was good and extensive.
Con: The resort is very very busy: breakfast is in a cheerless space, there are too many guests, queueing and seeking to get their plate as full as possible.
Everything what is extra has two be paid separately: sun loungers and umbrellas at the sea, but even at the swimming pool (!), inflatable castle toy in the sea, fresh squeezed fruit juice at breakfast.
At arrival you are prompted to pay a guaranty of 11000 kuna (more than € 1500), even before you've seen the room (!).
The swimming pool (and the breakfast?) are also used by guests of a huge camping, next to the resort - this is not mentioned in the description of the hotel. As a consequence, the pool was overcrowded (but the sun loungers were empty, because you had to pay extra for them).
There was not enough parking place, to park your car at a reasonable distance of your room. This resulted in a chaos of dubble parked cars and a lot of stress to leave the resort by car.
We fled away after three nights.

Dear guest 1970rache,
Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a a detailed review. We are glad you enjoyed the beautiful view from your room and your day started well with our breakfast offer. Sorry to hear that your expectations about the holiday concept were not met. Petalon is mostly family oriented resort, so in high season it can be a little busy. The pre-authorization procedure is very much present all around the world. It is a procedure that gives a guarantee to the hotels and resorts and allows to guests to take back their documents right after the check – in, also, you don`t have to pay in advance which leaves you time to explore the service and products before payment.
However, thank you for your suggestions and comments. We will certainly consider about your statements and find ways to improve the areas you pointed. Hope to have a chance to welcome you again under better conditions. We warmly recommend you to contact us directly so we can talk about the period of the year which is not so crowded, so you can feel comfortable and enjoy your holiday.
Kind regards,
Larisa Brljafa
Resort Manager

The room was marvellous, clean and tidy, very close to the beach. Wifi is rather poor. I couldn't connect for days then I had to wait ages for a simple website to load.
I paid €1100 for 6 nights (2 adults + kid), which is quite expensive considering you're in the Balkans.
The food was almost perfect. Breakfast was included in the price. Buffet dinner however was 115 kn pp. which I think is a ripoff. The food was always good, though. Great variety and quality, too.
The pizzeria next to the beach had quite delicious food but it's also surprisingly pricy. (Around 180-200 kn for the meal for the three of us). Beverages are definitely meant to rip you off your cash. A 500ml soft drink could cost 20-22 kn whereas it's 5-6 kn in a supermarket.
The pools are freshwater which is a big minus for me because I prefer saltwater pools especially when you're in a resort that's right at the seaside. They were clean and fun. The big one can be kinda crowded and at the kids' pool 2 out of 3 toys were not working.
Considering all pros and cons, it's a good place to spend your holiday with family.
Staff was very friendly and cheerful all the time. Judging by the license plates, most visitors come from Austria, Germany and Hungary.

It's not a hotel but a complex of rooms and apartments in a combination with a camp. They have a brand new beach, and all the stuff you need are right behind the corner like restaurant, pizzeria, bar, shops, fitness and pool. The food is very good, and they very big choice of food. And the staff is great and kind, it was nice and we will go back without a doubt.
