I was concerned when I read previous reviews about this hotel, but having returned from 2 week stay I can honestly say it is first rate. Travelled to this part of the world will know that a 5 star hotel here does not equate to a 5 star in the UK - so be prepared for a 4 start - but its sportlessly clean, fantastic beach area and the food is very fresh, plentifull and tasty. If you want romantic ambience for your evening meal you won't get it here as its buffet style, but now that eating out in Europe is so expensive, we found the vast selection of hot and cold food for both breakfast and Dinner to be very acceptable and we saved our money for going into Piran afterwards for a few drinks. The hotel is about 15 minute walk away from Piran (about 30 minutes from Portoroz) and there is a free bus from the adjacent "Park & Ride" as cars are only allowed in Piran with a permit. Overall a good quality hotel that had all we wanted. Yes we did detect a very occasional smell of drains on the waterfront - but we have experienced this in very many other "5 star" adriatic hotels and it is fleeting and does not detract from the location.
