“Great hotel in a great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

As stated in other reviews this hotel is dated and the bathroom is tiny, but kept immaculately clean. The staff are friendly and very helpful, the food buffet plentiful but very continental. Be aware that the excalator up from the car park is motion sensor activated, had we known it would have saved us lugging cases up the long flight of steps.

Room Tip: request high floor

2011. szeptember második felében egy nagyon szép hetet töltöttünk a szállodában. A hotel jól felszerelt, bár bizonyos hiányosságok vannak. A parkolóból mozgólépcső visz a bejáratig, a lift viszont csak a félemeletről indul és nem minden szintre lehet feljutni vele (pl. oldalszárny (C) 2-3 emeletre nem). A csomagokkal így nehézkes a feljutás, kerekesszékkel szinte lehetetlen. Bizonyos mértékű elhasználódás tapasztalható, bár ezek nem annyira kényelmi, inkább esztétikai jellegűek (pl. sérült bútor, csempe, kopott szőnyegpadló a folyosón). A fürdőszoba szellőzése gyenge. A személyzet rendkívül kedves, a szobákat naponta takarítják, ágyneműt, törölközőt sűrűn cserélik. Az ételkínálat (büfé) bőséges és nagyon széles a választék. Egy alkalommal üdvözlőitalt, a vacsorához folyó italokat (bor, sör, gyümölcslé) is kaptunk minden nap az árban. A saját használatú édesvizes medence nagyon szép, bár a víz elléggé hideg volt már szeptemberben. A kb. 200 méterre, részben lépcsőn elérhető, minden igényt kielégítő partszakasz (strand) több kilométeren keresztül jól kiépített és szépen gondozott. A közelből kishajó és gumikerekes kisvonat is indul Porecbe és vissza. Szívesen választom újra ezt a szállodát.

We booked this hotel for the start of a touring holiday in Croatia. The hotel was reasonably easy to find. Although the parking area is at a lower level it is lucky there is a moving staircase to get you and your luggage to the reception as it is a steep climb. it is also not possible to get to most of the rooms from reception without going up stairs and so it would not really be suitable for anyone unable to climb stairs.

The rooms were quite small, especially the bathroom, but they were clean.

Meals were fine, we were half board and were pleasantly surprised to find local drinks included within the price

My girlfriend and I spent one week at the Laguna Istra hotel at the beginning of august 2010. The hotel is situated in a very nice location, almost in front of the sea, and is connected with a two way escalator to the parking lot nearby.
It is quite nice and modern from the outside, stylish and well furnished inside. Our room was large, cozy and very clean - we booked a seaview room but got only a partial seaview, anyway still nice. The bathroom was a little tiny as noted by other reviewers, but comfortable anyway.
Hotel staff was incredibly helpful and friendly (my girlfried even found a small present on its birthday!). The buffet was great both at breakfast and dinner with a large selection of international foods (free beverages, beer and wine too).
The pool was a little small and usually crowded (but it was august, so quite normal) but anyway who cares about pools - the sea is wonderful with clear water (no sand beaches) and lots of quiet pinewoods and trails along the coast.
As for the extra activities, there is no lack of options with guided tours and cruises, sport resorts, some (quiet) nightlife and shopping opportunities in the surrounding villages.
All in all we had a really great time here in Croatia and a very pleasant stay at Laguna Istra - would definitely recommend to both families and couples looking for a great and relaxing holyday!

Hello,
I would like to tell you about Laguna Istra Hotel.

Laguna Istra is a really good place, if you want a good quite rest with your family or friends, and if you don't really need the nightlife. It is HB, but you can have a free snack (A sandwich and cake) in the lobby bar from 12:00 to 14:00. If to talk about the food - you can have a great variety of different courses, and everyone is very tasty. There is also a great amount of fruits.

The service there is perfect, especially I wouldlike to mark the way the reception works. You can obtain all the information you want rather fast, and have all your complaints handled.

As for the place it is situated in, it is needed to say that there are some restaurants and cafes, where you can have a snack, or lunch at the daytime. The prices there are reasonable, and the food is tasty too. you also can listen to live music there.

In Plava Laguna there are also some shops with food, souvenirs and dress, and a market with souvenirs and press.

So I recommend this hotel to everyone of you.

If you have any questions, please, feel free to contact me.

We came down here on june 26th and we were greeted by a kind gentleman in the reception who spoke fluid english.

The hotel rooms included a breakfast bufeet , lunch and dinner bufeet. The food was absolutely perfect. They had everything one would want. Free dessert and FREE beer and wine (both red and white) ! ! !

I used the internet there for about 45min and it cost me 15kunas or so.. So pretty cheap. The tv's there are all in italian/german og croatian.. so thats a minus. But who goes to croatia to watch tv anyways :P except for the world cup :)

There are no sand beaches but there is no problem taking a bath in the water from the buildt out places. Its recommended to use swim shoes tho. Because of the rocks and i think they said some kind of shell/fish who could really hurt your foot if u step on it.

The area around the hotel is really clean and natur friendly. Lots of benches and trails. A must see is the sunset. Its a sight to remember for life! :)

There's a boat who leaves every hour or so to porec. ("which is the closest city"). Costs 15kuna each way. and takes about 15-30min ;)

Overall i would definitly come back to this hotel : )

I was staying in this hotel during a business visit to Porec and I have to say It was a realy beautiful resort. Very lively with good service and excellent food.
The interior decoration of the hotel is little out of date (multi-color granite floors, green chandeliers, glittering walls, etc.) but still very neat and well kept.
As for the exterior: it is impeccable! The landscape is perfectly maintained with large olive grows and lawns. There is a small golf court and a horse stable in the resort so you have many things to enjoy besides the sea and the beach.
The staff was very friendly and attentive and I loved when they knew which room I was in without me saying it:)
Would recommend definitely!
