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.

"Close to sea and within walking distance to Porec."
We stayed full board and the price we paid was a good deal for this hotel. Also had the drinks package which was good value for us. Had an issue with our first room as it smelt strongly of sewage, staff weren't too keen to accommodate us moving room to begin with but we were eventually moved. Very popular with german tourists.
Rooms below average
Spotless, well-appointed hotel, excellent experience and good value. Tiny room but clean and comfortable, no elevator to our fourth floor room. Half board, with many food choices, but all rather bland as the kitchen clearly values efficiency over quality. Huge crowds of bus tourists (300 at once) but handled well and by a friendly and helpful staff. The setting is wonderful -- overlooking the Adriatic, rooms have small balconies with sea views, or onto the spacious and well-kept grounds. Bus service to Porec, three kilometers away. Recommended!

Excellent service and all staff very obliging, helpful and informative. Very near to beach. Nice views. Only one problem, buffet meals, very selective , with variety of foods, BUT the "hot " food section could and should have been hotter.

Istria's most visited resort, Porec dates back to Roman times. The terracotta-roofed old town sits on a small peninsular, and its main sight is the 6th century, UNESCO-listed Euphrasius Basilica, home to stunning golden Byzantine mosaics. Most of the hotels lie on the coast south of the old town, and on the tiny island of St Nikola, accessible by boat.
