Hotel Laguna Istra
Comfortable well presented accommodation with delusions of grandeur and a refined ambience; the rather strange cream plastic panelling makes parts of the interior look like a huge fitted wardrobe circa 1974. It is reasonably close to local amenities although an uphill climb from the beach. Would appeal to mature couples.
A series of unattractive wide interconnecting 5-storey 1970s blocks on either side of a 3-storey mirror-fronted main building
