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.
For breakfast and dinner. Sample the Croatian and international cuisine. With themed evenings held twice a week, and show cooking. If you have any special dietary requirements or if you'd like a vegetarian menu, don't forget to order in advance.
Myself and my boyfriend visited the fortuna island hotel in August this year and It was one of the best holidays I have ever had. We truly felt like we had struck gold! The hotel is a little dated, but the outdoor eating areas at dinner time, were absolutely lovely :) You definitely have to get there early to get an outside table, but it is so worth it. We had booked a garden view room as we had read reviews that the sea view room was noisy, however we was given a sea room instead. When I arrived at the room and realised this I was initially quite worried, but watching the sunset over the adriatic sea was gorgeous! Waking up to the sunrise was even better! Although the room was dated, it didn't really matter because the setting was to die for.
The town of porec is lovely and I don't doubt that I will be going back here again in the future. We went on a bike ride down the coast and went past a few of the other hotels, however they were a lot more crowded and the area wasn't as nice. Fortuna island does get busy with guests during the day, but of an evening it is so quiet (And this was peak season!).
We even could find our own quiet spots to swim in the sea around the island (however, you really have to be lucky).
The food was lovely and there was great variety! The entertainment was a little poor but it didn't matter because a walk around the island of an evening was so pleasant.
We also visited Venice on a day trip which was also stunning! However, it is a long day and in peak season, the hot weather left me with a pounding head ache the whole time I was there. I could imagine that a visit in autumn or spring would be so much more pleasant.
I could not recommend this hotel enough! Book with Thompsons and you wont regret it! TJ the rep is such a lovely person too. I can't wait to go back already!More

I had always wanted to go to Croatia, and when looking for Honeymoon destinations I stumbled upon this Hotel, just of the mainland on its own little island. We agreed it looked perfect and it was booked. When we arrived the staff were lovely and friendly, the food was very nice and the entertainment was good. The only down side was the 48hr festival they have on the mainland, the sounds amplify when bouncing off the waves, so not much sleep, it was our honeymoon so it was to enjoyed. The room was a bit small but satisfactory. The Bar Staff and waiters are some of the friendliest people I have ever met. I booked myself in for a massage, came out floating I was so relaxed. Would love to go back. Its not the right date as I got married in 2006 and have only just got round to the review very naughtyMore

We have just returned from this lovely hotel and it is having major work done over the winter and opens in May 2015.The service was very good with the staff being very helpful and diligent.The ferry crossing was regular every half hour and efficient.The whole island is run by the hotel and they have numerous beaches that are serviced by staff all day untill 6pm.I suspect the new hotel will be something else as the pictures shown at the hotel are very grand indeed.
The rooms and hotel in general is tired being some 28 years old but we are very definitely visiting next year and can not wait.More

A very individual Hotel
We arrived and loved the beautiful location straight away. The very frequent little ferry and the service all round was superb, including our reps. The Hotel is dated now and you can see the new apartments being built (if you go looking for them!). The staff are really friendly and helpful. I hope the developments this winter don't spoil the charm of the place.
We had a lovely holiday and thanks to all the staff.

Fortuna Island Hotel, Porec, Croatia
Hotel very "sad" looking; in need of an upgrade. Proposed refurbishment due this winter so hopefully better next year. Polite staff. Made to feel welcome. Thomson rep helpful and informative.Swimming pool small. When the weather was good we never had the opportunity to have a sun lounger as people reserved them from early morning.Able to get a lounger at the end of the day. Loungers by the beach and umbrellas had to be paid for.Dining was interesting: if you weren't down in the dining area by the specified start time then you weren't guaranteed of finding a table with cutlery, crockery etc. Staff weren't always that helpful in providing this so a bit of a do it yourself. Likewise if not on time for breakfast:coffee/milk difficult to obtain. Water at dinner time had to be paid for despite tap water being drinkable. Water was available at breakfast time but turned off for dinner time. Lastly kept awake at night by club music from Porec that started from 23pm-~3am.(needed to close all shutters, windows and put the fan on to block the noise out).More
