An island escape just off the coast of Porec, this hotel combines a secluded setting with first-class views.
Set on a tiny island just off the mainland, this hotel is surrounded by nothing more than pines and Blue Flag waters. If you want to head over to nearby Porec, boats make the 5-minute trip every half-hour.
The island’s ringed by pebbly beaches, and there’s a bathing platform that looks over to Porec. Some of the rooms have the same view, while others look out to the gardens where you can spot rabbits and peacocks.

Two weeks at the Fortuna
Just had an enjoyable two week stay at the Fortuna, a great little hotel on an island just as advertised. Its a bit dated now, but still worth a visit, the pool and the grounds are great, clean and tidy. There is a wide range of foods each night, although not all to our liking, some odd things are eaten here, odd to us anyway. The boat to the mainland goes regularly and is free to residents. Porec itself is a pretty, and small little town, but again, worth a visit. The music at night carries over to the hotel and can go on till 3 or 4 am at weekends, this is a pain and does interfere with sleeping, but you can get earplugs from reception, or take a room at the back of the hotel, spoils the lovely view but you can sleep then... Snorkelling is great around the island and is safe as its all roped off. The only complaint about this hotel would be the staff, or lack of them,, the ones they have work very hard, but there are just not enough of them, it can take 20 minutes plus to get a drink at the bar, as they have only one bar staff, and two waiters for approx. 150 people sitting outside?? All in all a good stay and would revisit, if there were more staff and double glazing fitted, or sound proofing. Be aware there is no air conditioning in this hotel although a fan is provided free.More

I'm in love...
I absolutely LOVE this hotel soooo much! It is on a little island away from the main land, just a short 5 minute boat ride away which means whether you're there for a relaxation holiday, with kids or just need to recharge before hitting the bars again, you don't get a lot of noise from there. The food was phenomenal and buffet meant you could choose your food without feeling bad that you're ignoring your 5-a-day. The pools always had loungers available and the fact you could swim in blue-flag waters was amazing. Definitely recommend snorkelling. We booked through Thompson and the staff are always on hand to help book excursions or just help with any problems you have.More

Don't change too much
We have spent many holidays in Croatia & previously Yugoslavia & love it. Last minute booking, read reviews and thought we'd give it a go. Booked through Thomson & most impressed- although 7 days not enough (19th to 26th August ). Yes hotel a little tired BUT full of charm & character. Setting stunning, staff fantastic,so clean, food first class. Loved the free boat ,to mainland, a couple of nights we were disturbed by noise from mainland but it would have been same if we'd been on mainland. Porec was lovely to explore. I know it needs updating but worried it will become like so many others & lose it's soul. A huge thankyou to ALL staff for making our holiday so memorable.More

Beautiful Island Hotel
Just returned from a fantastic holiday at the Fortuna Island Hotel. Croatia is so beautiful and St Nicholas Island is a little haven just off the coast of Porec. There is a free ferry every half hour across to the mainland, this runs till 1am in the summer. otherwise you can get a water taxi for 1 kuna each. The staff were very helpful and hardworking. Hotel was spotless and the food was excellent. Our room over looked the Adriatic sea and the mainland, the view were spectacular. Our only moan was the noise from the all night disco on the mainland. We complained to the hotel reception and was given the keys to another room at the back of the hotel, so very quiet there. When the season finishes the hotel is getting refurbished and double glazing is getting installed, they are also building apartments and suites at the rear of the island. There is also a castle on the island which is having suites built in it, so it will be quite different next year. I just hope it stays traffic free and as peaceful as it was. All in all it was the best holiday we have ever had and we will definitely return.More
Booked holiday through Thomson. Had read some reviews on here so knew what to expect. Yes the hotel is dated, they make no efforts to hide that from customers. There are big plans underway for a 2015 refit. The staff were first class, very friendly and helpful (this is true of every Croatian person we met!). The island itself was lovely and the hotel although basic was spotless. The food was good and service fast. The boat ride to Porec was a pleasure in itself and the town of Porec provided plenty of entertainment. Noise can be heard from the mainland however some Istrian wine before bed will take care of that. TJ the Thomson rep was great, very informative and friendly. We did a day trip to Venice, well worth the 2 and half hour boat trip. Make sure to catch the tourist train along the coast and hope a boat back. We also did the free wine tasting and tour of Porec with Tin, this was excellent and totally free! Overall an excellent holiday, can't wait to go back and see the refurb next year. Thank you.More
