I experienced nice weather good food reasonable prices at local bars and restaurants. The bus service from the hotel to the town is very punctual and cheap. Taxis are a bit hit and miss but if you use the hotel approved ones although a little more expensive they are reliable.
This was my first visit to Croatia. The hotel was modern, clean, close to the beach. The staff spoke English, Italian, German, Russian, and Croatian. It seems that Porec is a hot spot for German vacationers. I probably heard more German being spoken than any other language. The pool was clean and not over-run by kids or crazy drunk 20-somethings. We were able to get a lounge chair by the pool every day. The beach is 200 meters away. Not a sandy beach, but the water was warm and clear. Also very easy to get a spot on the beach. Very relaxing place to stay. Only about a15 minute walk along the beach into the town center. Breakfast and dinner were included with our room. I am not usually keen on buffet food, but it was very fresh and cooked right in front of you. Lots of variety of excellent dishes.

we arrived at night, so didnt really get to see the hotel til the morning. first impressions were good. the staff are extremely helpful and speak excellent english, our croatian was limited to please and thank you(bok and hvala). our room was v. large as we ended up with a 3 bed room which had a limited sea view. the rooms were a little basic but the bathroom was brand new and v. clean with plenty of clean towels. we stayed on a HB basis and we couldnt fault the food, it was fabulous. we both put on weight because we went back for seconds!! we would recommend this hotel v. highly but if we went back we would choose one in old porec because its a little bit too far to stagger back from a night out with heels on! everything stops in the hotel at 12am but at least you can get to sleep as there isnt constant noise but if you fancy a nightcap , ask the staff for a bucket of ice to take back to your room.

My boyfriend and I spent a week at Hotel Lone and we had an absolutely fantastic time, I never wanted to leave! The hotel is beautifully designed with a modern and sleek feel, the bedrooms and bathrooms are a very good size with especially large beds and baths, and the outside areas (pool, beach, gardens etc) are well designed and very clean.
The food in the a la cart restaurant is beautifully crafted and the menu offers some genuinely distinctive and creative dishes and the prices are very reasonable for what you get. Unfortunately I do think the restaurants lack some atmosphere, in fitting with the overall design of the hotel the restaurant is quite stark, it looks nice enough but it lacks something. Although the outside space is beautiful!
One design flaw is the large glass pane between the bedroom and the bathroom. Although it is frosted glass and is obscured by some wooden slats at the wrong angle you can see a slither of the bathroom which isn't ideal. It also means that if you use the bathroom in the night and turn the bathroom light on the whole bedroom is lit up - my boyfriend is a very light sleeper so I had to use the toilet in the dark!
The service at the buffet breakfast and in the bar is not brilliant, but the rest of the staff (cleaners, reception, waiting staff in the restaurants were brilliant; very helpful and very polite.
Overall though I would highly recommend Lone and although I said I'd never go to the same place twice I will definitely be going back!

Me and my wife spent the night at the Kempinski hotel and it was a wonderful experience. The staff was great and very helpful and made our stay very comfortable. Our room was great and very clean and had a fantastic view of the Adriatic.
The staff were incredible, the value for your money was unbeatable, the rooms were impeccable. It's the perfect place for a family, for couples and for elderly. It has a wide variety of activities for the days when you don't want to lay by the inviting pool or private beach. I cannot say enough positive about my stay and would very highly recommend this hotel. I'll be back!!!
