“Village in need of renovation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2014

Location of the hotel and village is quite convenient - seafront is close, nice short lungomare walk till centre of Poreč or Materada complex. We stayed in a bungallow in the village that is set in a very nice peaceful pine forrest and garden surrounding - away from the street. Spacious covered terrace with garden is very convenient for small children. However the bungallows are in need of renovation. Furniture is in a dreadful 80's style pink colour, shabby and totally outdated (should be replaced immediately). Interior of the bungallows is also very humid with specific and unpleasant smell. Windows and courtains have not been cleaned for ages. Cleanliness is poor in general.

We liked the variety of food, which was also very delicious. Free self service drinks (wine, beer, juices, water...) with dinner is also a big plus compared to most of Valamar hotels. However I was not allowed to enter the dining room with my bakcpack. Dining room is also claustrophobic - not enough natural light (maybe courtains should be removed from the windows). It is also too crowded - long waiting lines for salad and main dish buffet.

Decent standard hotel. It is kept in very clean condition and all rooms are cleaned daily. There is always plenty of choice in the restaurant and the food is of a good standard. The hotel is very close to the concreted beach. it is about a 15 minute walk to the town of Porec. The walk is very scenic and one can walk right along the seafront. For those less mobile there is a tourist train which costs about 10 kuna around £1.20 and again this is a pleasant ride. Although it is a pleasant area there is little to do of an evening. There is a bar on the beach which provides a good atmosphere. One note of caution, this is very much a German dominated resort. We were in the hotel for 3 days before we met another British couple. Although the Germans were friendly communication was difficult and one can feel a little isolated. Once we met the other couple our holiday improved greatly just having someone else to communicate and socialize with. The woman who books the trips in the hotel speaks perfect English. She is Croatian but grew up in Australia and she is very helpful and friendly and always found time to speak with us.

Room Tip: Request a balcony or pool view room.

We were staying in a bungalow of Village Laguna Park.

First of all I want to say about the wonderful people. All hotel staff are very friendly, even the technical workers. But most wonderful are male - waiters. They are very studious and caring and their energy is bigger than than that of young people. Our favorite waiter is Deuro. He is role model for good waiters.

Secondarily, I want to say about the restaurant. We had a menu plan as HB. All drinks (even beer and wine) were included. This is very valuable, not many hotels offer this meal plan. Very rich and diverse dishes. All dishes were available irrespective of the time when you come.
One day I noticed in the restaurant horse meat. I was wary that I probably earlier I would not attentive enough to titles of the dishes and maybe I ate horse meat. I asked if there was a horse meat in the beginning of the week then a few people were involved to answer to my question and let me make sure that I did not eat horse meat.

Thirdly, I want to say about the territory. It is very comfortable for relaxation and at the same time gives you everything you need. Our room was always well cleaned.
Not to be idealized. I admit that in our room (№40) were: tight door lock; partially window curtain which does not work in the bathroom; difficult manage the hot water tap (I think it's because of the minerals in the water). But it's really all the comments that did not inconvenience us.

Only inconvenience caused us was able to smoke anywhere even near the children's swimming pool. But I hope it will be settled soon.

I certainly recommend this hotel.

This resort is right on the sea, has a swimming pool, tennis courts,large selection of food at dinner and breakfast buffet. There were lots of children there, a very kid friendly place. Dinner buffet had something for everyone - salad bar, large selection of coked vegetables, meat, fish, pizza,ice cream, unlimited beer and wne. We slept in a bungalow, which was very basic but comfortable. With dinner and breakfast, we paid about $75. You can't beat that price.

We stayed in one of the bungalows in the grounds. As some previous reviews mention the bungalows are a little dated, but very clean and great value for money. The towels were changed every day. We were on half board and the food was fine. We had no problem with getting a table for dinner as there was an "overflow" area which was open every evening. Agree with other reviews in that staff were very friendly and everything is kept spotlessly clean. My only criticism is that internet access is very expensive!

The hotel is exceptionally clean and the staff are lovely and friendly and most speak English very well. We had a suite that was bright and cheery and very comfortable with a bedroom, bathroom and small lounge with TV fridge and sofa. The balcony was very large with rattan furniture and a huge parasol. The dining room was large and spacious and the food very nice. There was a salad bar and a sweet bar and you could help yourself to either beer on tap, wine on tap or soft drinks on tap. The main meals were laid out along the length of the dining room almost with lots of varieties. Friday evening was Fisherman's night with entertainment and a welcome drink. We will definatly be returning. Only one small criticism on a purely personal front is that I do not like to see topless bathers, particularly around the child friendly pool.

Just returned from this hotel ,superb location opposite the adriatic,clean,comfortable and good food.lovely room with balcony cleaned every day with fresh towels.The grounds and other areas of the hotel were kept spotless.Polite and helpful staff.Unlike most resorts having sandy beaches this one is rocks,concrete and grass but quite pleasant.Like mentioned in other reviews dining time can be chaotic especially in summer months queues not so much waiting to get in the dining room but the queues for the self service food has to be seen to be believed.As the drinks are included and free during meal times only,people are reluctant to leave the dining room creating a shortage of available tables.Tended to go in later for dinner to avoid the rush and long queues.Nice pool area but considering it is used for hotel and self catering units is rather small.The old story of towels on sunbeds before 8.00a.m. even though the hotels policy forbids this practise no one pays any notice.,towels are there all day even when beds are not in use.Would use this hotel again but probably not in high season.Porec is a lovely town a 20 minute pleasant walk away or 10 minute tourist road train journey that runs regularly.

Room Tip: not all rooms have balcony,ask for one if you enjoy time using one,especially in the evenings.
