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.
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
I didn't want to come home!
We where one of the last to leave the lovely Island hotel on it's last day in the guise of Hotel Fortuna and what a wonderful week we had! I agree with the dated rooms, but I'm sucker for retro and vintage and I LOVED the art deco feel to the hotel and I'm almost sad it's going to be so modern next year, but the plans look spectacular.
The staff where amazing, so friendly, polite, chatty, efficient and really helped make the holiday. The food was pretty good (although I'd like to make a suggestion on behalf of my Husband and suggest Brown Sauce on the breakfast bar next year ;o) ) and we found something delicious to eat every time we had breakfast or dinner, searching out the delicious Istrian/Croatian dishes.
Great wine! You HAVE to try malvazia, and if the hotel are still running the free wine tasting on a Wednesday (oh yes you did read that right! i did say free) then it really is a must.
Possibly the best holiday I've ever had, I felt relaxed as soon as I arrived, the staff helped with this feel and so did TJ the Thompson rep.
Can't wait to go back.
We didn't suffer with any noise issues, if you want a quieter stay I'd suggest a stay early or late in to the season (although I'd imagine that won't be an issue in the new Isabella Island Resort with it's new fangled Air conditioning and double glazing ;) )More

Lovely hotel on its own island! The rooms are a dated however the view from the rooms at the front of the hotel totally made up for this! The staff were very welcoming and the service provided was second to none! The hotel provides a free water taxi to porec More

Loved the island and Croatia
Bit of a late review but stayed at the hotel 6th May 2014 for a week. It was a lovely break. The food on the first night worried me as a vegetarian as the first dish in the veggie corner was mussels. However the breakfast was brilliant and the food the rest of the time was nice. the pizza was amazing! The hotel as everyone says is dated but it is clean and all the staff (bar the reception who didn't actually speak to us) were really friendly. My partner loved the island and Porec so much we were hoping to go back in September. Seeing the rabbits was so lovely I think all the building work has effected the peacocks already as we only saw two. Already looked for the same week next year and due to all the changes it is now £200 per person more so it is now out of our price range which we are gutted about. Favorite holiday so far and we will return to Croatia for sure.More
