We stayed here the first week of October. Really nice hotel. Our room, though perhaps a little small, was perfectly adequate and comfortable. Had a pool and sea view, which was nice.
We were half board, so had the benefits of free wine and beer with dinner, and it was help yourself! Such a good idea! Buffet service, with a wide choice of meat, pasta, salad, veg, potatoes etc plus desserts, plenty to choose from. Breakfast was a good selection, but got a bit 'samey' by the end of the week.
Lovely walk into Porec town, takes about 20 mins. Some nice, cheap restaurants there, especially the Corso in the old town - great food, service and price!
The little tourist train is good, goes to town and to Zelena Laguna in the other direction, which has a nice lake and stony beach further round, but you can also walk it.
Salt water pool, but it was heated slightly, which made getting into it easier! Plenty of sun beds, even though there were lots of Germans there!
No sandy beaches here though, but we weren't worried about that.
All in all, good value for money, and in a lovely part of Croatia. Visited Venice, even though it took 2.5 hours each way - well worth it.
We will certainly return another time.

First - the best.
Kitchen: offers a large variety of good food in a large self-service restaurant for hundreds of customers. Nice looking, good tasting, fresh, changing daily. Super good fish! Fruits, vegetables, ice creams, complementary local wines, beer and other beverages. - It can not be compared to the best a'la carté places of Poreč city but taking account the quantities of food and guests and limited budget: very recommendable. Sparkling wine at breakfast table starts every sunny (and rainy) day of your holiday.

Guests: elderly Germans 40%; Russians 30% and 30% mixed everybody else. Very few young people and children.

Location: Very good. Walking distance to Poreč city. Tourist train regular transfer from door to Poreč harbor and back is also available.

Staff: very nice and friendly; restaurant staff (male) wears ugly, oversized, old-fashioned uniform that makes them look clumsy... cute young guys, do they really have to wear such potato sacks!!!

Pools: clean and nice but very crowded; some people leave their towels overnight and, thus, "book" their sun beds for the whole week. - Not very friendly!

Beach: hotel does not have its own beach area nor free sun beds at the sea. Hotel even does not provide towels for beach or pool area. - Be equipped, beach area is very stony! It is possible to use ladders or stairs to get into water even without special shoes. Brilliant clear water.

Hotel Wi-Fi is overpriced, obviously considered as a "luxury service" available in lobby only at unreasonably high price. Hotel administration still can not understand that free Internet could keep many people sitting and drinking in the hotel bar instead of walking to Poreč and leaving their money in city bars where free WiFi for the guests is essential like everywhere in developed world.

Rooms: most of rooms seem to have a balcony but not all; and sea view is a rare exception. I had booked a room with a balcony and sea view but I got one wihout any view at all - like a prison cell. (I have uploaded some photos from out- and inside.) - So, when booking a room, be sure what you pay for and what you get for your money. - I cannot blame hotel for cheating as my booking was arranged by a travel agency. AURINKO kliendid Eestis, olge ettevaatlikud nende sooduspakkumistega; algul maksad raha ära, alles seejärel selgub, et valitud hotellis tegelikult kohti polegi ja hoopis kallima asendushotelli "merevaate ja rõduga" tuba osutub pimedaks trellitatud akendega kongiks, kust ei avane ÜLDSE MITTE MINGIT VAADET, rõdust rääkimata. Ilusa ilmaga pole see oluline, sest pole aegagi toas olla, aga vihmase ilmaga on selline närune tuba üsnagi masendav!!! - Hotellil pole viga miskit, aga broneerige tuba ise või valige usaldusväärne reisikorraldaja!!! Aurinko.ee klienditeenindus on lihtsalt süüdimatu pask!

Bathrooms are modern and practical; efficient showers, large mirror, good lighting, wall-mounted hair dryer. Daily change of towels. Perfect!

Animation: the best ever - NO ANIMATION; no disturbing music at pools. Some international music and shows after dinner, performed with good taste and on good level.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms of the hotel are good and light, I should especially recommend sea-side, which is...

We stayed for a week in early August 12.
We generally prefer small hotels or self catering (not because we cook but because we prefer the variety of eating out) so would not generally go for a hotel like this (300+ rooms large self service dining halls, half board) but we were very pleasantly surprised!
The room was comfortable and we had a fantastic view looking out over pool towards sea an island on the first floor. The hotel spotless, the public areas, bright and furnished in a modern clean style.
The staff do not go out of thier way to engage with guests, and can come across as a bit reserved, but are very pleasant once you get to know them. If I was being picky the service from the bar area was painfully slow and they insisted on table service (although on a couple of occasions I got fed up and collected our drink from the bar myself)
The food was very good considering it was on a mass-produced buffet style. We always found something we like and the quality was as good as meals we paid for in Porec. Beer at wine was included, which was a nice touch.
Travel tips, Porec is well worth a visit in the evening, make sure you get the water taxi back! - Great fun for 2Kuna, we also went to Lake Bled - Amazing- Highly recommended and Venice, wonderful although a little rushed, and finally Rovinj a short boat trip away and beautiful.
The area was beautiful, with pine trees al the way down to the waters a=edge and loads of activities for kids of all ages. Prices seemed very reasonable. (cheap by UK standards) and everything is so well cared for!
7 days was not enough and we will definitely return! It exceeded our expectations in almost every respect.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view

Live Review! Presently staying at Hotel Mediteran ( Room 25 ), this holiday has been sadly ruined by the school canteen style restaurant! I object to a trolly being wheeled next to my table and other diners scraps being scraped into a sluice bin whilst I am eating my dinner! Very slow at replenishing empty dishes, so choice becomes minimal and food repetitive and uninspiring!
Distinct lack of leadership in the restaurant!
However, the rest of the hotel, is spotless and absolutely no complaints at all! I will update on my return home

Room Tip: Sea View requested but not given!

Just returned from 7 nights in the hotel mediteran porec . Our room 723 was very clean and spacious enough for our family of 2 adults and one 18 month old . We were offered a cot bed or we could use the sofa bed , we opted for sofa bed and that was great . We overlooked the pool and were above the bar area so there was some noise on the evening during the entertainment shows but was finished by 11pm .one thing that was lacking in the room was a fridge and kettle! The hotel is very spacious and lots of places to go and sit . The restaurant is nice you can sit inside or outside . however depending on what time you eat can be busy so expect to queue for some food evening meal was 6.30 till 9pm High chairs were provided for us . Good range of food but I felt it was a little repetitive .we went with other family members who had been to this hotel 2 years ago and they did not think the food was as good the last time they came even though they have refurbished it therefore if I was to go back I would rather do bed and breakfast as there is so many nice places to eat in porec like st nicola's at the top end of seafront . the pool area was nice however not that safe for an 18 month old as the little pool was down steps! Which seems to be a favourite of this hotel which made it hard when you have a push chair as access to our room the restaurant the pool and going out of the hotel was all via steps !! so for us it was not toddler friendly or wheelchair friendly . Just outside the hotel there is a little play area with swing slides etc however the swings were not for suitable for 18 month as there was no harness for them but if you are walking into porec you will come across another play area which does have 2 baby swings .the hotel is in great location you can catch the open train into porec last one on a night is 11.20pm or you can walk in which is approx 15 min and lovely . on the way you can stop off for drinks . crazy golf . Trampoline . Zip wires bikes to hire . Plus many more activities . Plenty of bathing places on the sea lots of sunbeds all around , showers and changing cubes , access into the sea is via ramps or steps . There is a little man made beach so our 18 month old was happy making sand castles and there was another play area on the beach however on the beach the access to the sea was again down steps but if the tide is out then it's not to bad as little ones came be in shallow water . Porec Town is beautiful So authenic cobbled street With resturants . Bars . Shops ice cream parlours ! Seafront with shops . beautiful resturants Where you can relax and people watch or boat ! If you need baby supplies than best place was in porec and in shop called dm sold nappies wipes baby milk baby food all branded makes too and the only place in porec that had nappy changing facility which seemed to lack everywhere else . Don't waste money in getting buket and spades and inflatables etc go by the toilets by the restaurant in the hotel and everyone leaves them there when the have finished there holiday . You are also close to other hotels the Dimant and crystal which are nice too I would go back to porec again
