I stayed in an the Belle Vue apartments in the Plava Laguna resort and you can make your way around the paths if you like long walks.
If you want short cuts you need to walk up and down the steps, which can be hard work or good exercise depending on your point of view
If you stay in the apartments, take an umbrella if you are half board as it’s a long walk in the rain to the Mediteran hotel for meals.
The rooms were clean clean laundry was left twice during the weeks stay. They leave plenty of towels but they are not very large! We didnt do any cooking at all but had we chosen to the apartment offered all the pots and pans that you could need. The apartment is nice and there were 2 of us in the apartment, but it can house 6. It would have been a squeeze for 6 as it is crammed with furniture and had to go into the hall to get dressed as there was no room to move in the bed room.
The food is very good basic all inclusive fare with many pasta dishes, lots of continental style foods. The staff are great and friendly and the young lads are great entertainment by whipping your plate away as you take your last bite! One even blocks your path with his trolley as a joke then wheels off laughing! It really is like Fawllty towers in Croatia with the younger staff
There is a little man in a golf buggy type thing that will take you and your luggage to the apartments and he drives down the paths then goes off road without warning across the grass, which we found funny as well.
Porec is a nice and picturesque little town. Some nice seafront restaurants and bars for people watching.
There is a local bus station with buses to many places in Croatia and also other European cities in Germany, Italy, Slovenia etc. They are infrequent to local places though with 2 hour gaps and so not as easy to get to Rovinj and Pula as you would imagine for a tourist resort. You can pay the high taxi price or go on organised boat trips for a higher price also.
You can arrange trips with Atlas the local travel company or a rep in a hotel if you are staying in one. There is not much difference in prices really and I traveled to Brijuni island, Lake Bled in Slovenia and Venice for the day. The Venice trip was quite a bit cheaper with a man on the harbour front who works for Kompas travel. The Venice trip was excellent.
There is a boat taxi that drops off in Plava laguna and Zelena laguna or there is a noddy type train. Both are 2 kunas (about £2.50) but the train sticks to its times better.
They both have the pickup and return times displayed on signs at the stops, although the boat misses an hour in the middle of the day. The boat taxi times board is right on the harbour side where it docks and so you have to go down the steps and quayside to find out, this would be better on the main path for people with walking difficulties to check the times so they can decide to get the train into Porec if they have just missed the boat.
The surrounding area of Porec is a man-made resort with Hotels and villas and camp sites set in a pine forest setting. This has its pluses and minuses for me. You can walk to Porec in about 30 minutes and short cuts can be taken from the windy paths if needed.
A nice place to relax.
