#24 of 35 hotels in Porec
The recently refurbished communal spaces of Hotel Zorna are intended for no-fuss family holidays. Everything is catered for you by the hotel staff, while you have the time of your life. That is why we call it All inclusive. As a part of Zelena resort, hotel Zorna offers lots of sports and adventures for adults and kids alike, from organised Mini Disco evenings to cinema under the stars. Poreč is 5 km away from the hotel, but if you don´t feel like walking along the coast, there is a tourist train that will take you into town. Recommended for guests looking to leave all their worries behind them and truly relax.

This hotel is one to avoid on all accounts. The adverts and pictures really don't reflect the truth. Hotel Zorna is approx 40 mins away from Pula airport, by taxi that's around £100. It is located in quite a remote area but is a massive complex that has a lot of activities, entertainment, bars, and restaurants (thank god). From the outside it looks very fetching however once you have climbed the rather large staircase (not sure how accessible it would be for wheelchair users) the fun starts. The reception is bright and welcoming unlike the staff. Very unapproachable in every department apart from the cleaners. The rooms are very small and cramped with strange carpet and pink sparkly headboard and wardrobe. The bathroom was tiny. All very dated. Shower head dirty. No balcony just weird sort of bars over sliding doors and a peice of cord for a washing line. One main electric socket to use the other hid in a cupboard. The lift very wobbly on transfers and felt like a moon landing. If you enjoy eating lots of chicken innards this is the place for you. Food is self serve buffet of very sad looking food which seems to be the same night after night. Most meats pink on the inside or very pale on outside ( see inedible sausage) my toe had more colour. The all inclusive is a massive rip off. Drinks are in tiny little cups which all taste of soda water with different colouring in them. Cocktails are premade in old bottles on the side or poured from pre mixed drink bottles that you can buy in supermarkets (see photo below)Snacks served between 4 and 5 then 10 and 11pm. Snacks are 5 crisps in bowls or teacups, twiglets in glasses or a cheese and ham bun which are hid under counter. I've cream cones are stale and you are allowed one small scoop. It appears that this complex is mainly Russian and German dominated. Extremely clear the staff do not like English families. Pool is small with room for about 10 beds around it. Apparently pool doesn't open till 9am but these rules only apply to English residents. Most beds taken by 8am (see photo below)Depending on where you are from depends if you can drink or eat near the pool and what type of glass or cup you can have. We over spent as had to eat out. Cafe Aurora is very nice and located next to Hotel Zorna. On leaving the hotel on the last day I handed back keys to just be completely ignored. As a family we made the best of it however I would never return here again. To be honest the whole experience has put me off Croatia all together. I am absolutely disgusted by the behaviour of staff here they should be ashamed of themselves. Perhaps rename as Hotel Amityville? Unless you are German or Russian that is.

If you would like to go on a holiday to be insulted this place is a must, having had the pleasure of paying £3000 to be scowled at, shouted at and ignored. Really unfriendly on all accounts. Hotel zorna is on a large complex which has a lot of things to do such as bike riding boat trips sports etc. On arrival hotel looks beautiful however rooms are big let down. They are very small, and old fashioned bathrooms are tiny with a caravan type shower. Rooms are clean though. Balconys don't exist just a rail with bars over windows. Food is so so, very much the same. Staff going around cleaning tables are extremely miserable and very unapproachable. The all inclusive is a massive let down. Drinks served in thimble sized cups snacks served during 2 short periods. These consist of crisps presented in teacups, twiglets, cheese and ham barms and small cakes. To get one you risk the wrath of being glared at. No consistency with house rules. By the pool, out of all the sunbathers we where singled out for having juice in glasses and told to put them in plastic cups. Bare in mind all the other residents had drinks in glasses. A security guard came marching over shouting at us. Now, if we had been made aware of this it would of not be an issue but plastic glasses are not offered. Very much German and Russian dominated. If you are English you don't stand a chance of survival.

Mixed feelings about the hotel. Staff friendly and efficient. Rooms fine but small. Food not bad but have had nicer in all inclusive else where. Especially pubbing v repetitive. No outside space to sit in restaurant depressing. Drinks nice pool area a bit small. What was great was the amount of activities you could do for free. We went out on kayaks, paddle boat, mini golf , tennis and 3 hours on brand new bikes. All for free. The area is very pretty but quite far out of town. Can take noddy train we perfered water taxi. Wouldn't go there again but good value if you factor in free activities.

The location of the hotel is very good - right on the sea front. The reception areas are stylish and well appointed and generally the staff were very helpful and friendly but not all of them. The all inclusive package is very good as one can get alcoholic drinks all day through to the late evening, and there are snacks and ice cream available during the day as well as the normal three meals. Included in the price was the availability of a variety of land and water sports. One could take out a kayak for a couple of hours, or a pedalo or cycles. Other sports were also available at no extra cost. This was an unexpected and valuable added extra. Our room was on the third floor and it was disappointing to find that there was no lift. We were helped with our luggage on arrival but the three flight trek to our bedroom during the day was very tiresome. I had seen from other reviews that the bedrooms were small so I was prepared for this but I was surprised at exactly how small they were. With careful and inventive unpacking, however, we managed. The last negative issue is a small one but perhaps worth a mention - the hairdryer which is provided in the room is the old fashioned 'hotel' type dryer (fixed to the bathroom wall, cream coloured and takes about three hours to merely fluff up the hair and render it damp). I would suggest taking your own. But all in all we really enjoyed our stay at the Zorna Hotel.

We were very happy with our stay at AI Hotel Zorna, Porec. We had a room with a seaview. Everyone were very kind and ready to help. We need gluten free and diary free diet, so we would especially like to thank Ms Nevenka for her kindness and willingness to help with the dietplan and Ms Marijaa from snackbar. We would like to applaud also Dora and her animation team, their performace in the musical Aladdin was outstanding. Thank you all the staff at Hotel Zorna for a very pleasant vacation.

The location of this hotel over looking the water surrounded by pine trees is absolutely stunning.From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and all the staff were friendly especially the lady on reception who made a point of introducing us to the area,with maps,suggestions for things to do and a boat trip,which we really enjoyed.The hotel is kept spotlessly clean and it had a bright airy feel about it.The rooms are small however the bed was big and comfy and we didn’t have a problem with the pink decor,it made the place quirky. The pool is on the front of the hotel,along with a small children’s pool and in this area it is all seating no sun beds,so you can sit and enjoy the view over the water.The sun beds are on the grass behind the hotel,which seemed to work perfectly.Also in front of the hotel are areas next to the water where you can sunbath,but need your own mats as it is on concrete.The hotel allowed you to take drinks and snacks to this area with no problem,in fact we found the hotel to be very laid back about drinks and food,with people bringing food out of the restaurant to eat on the seating terrace. We found the all inclusive excellent,the drinks were fine and the snacks,which included crisps ,sandwiches and cakes were served from a counter within the reception area.The bar was also in this area and the coffee counter.Black coffee and tea you served yourself from pots on the side.We enjoyed the food served in the restaurant,always plenty of choice and one night was a fish themed night with music and cava served in reception before your meal in the restaurant. The hotel is 40 minutes walk into Porec along the waters edge and through the trees.There is also a small train,which costs20kuana,times are on the notice board in reception.To get the train or walk to Porec you go out of the hotel turn right walk to the end of the hotel Plavi and you will see the train and also the start of the walk around the water and head towards the volley ball nets and follow path.There is also a bus stop out side hotel Plavi into Porec and runs 10 minutes to the hour.To change money ,there is an exchange office,again out the hotel turn right and it is just after the atm machine.The other nice touches this hotel group do in this area they put on special events that everyone can enjoy,while we were there they had a Queen tribute band on the beach with a fire work display .This was our first visit to this area and we absolutely loved it and the Croations were lovely friendly people.

Rooms are very very small, no terrace, and toilet is extremely small like a plane toilet almost!! No black out on windows so u wake up with the sunrise! All inclusive is a big disappointment.. big myth! food is not good at all, mass production style.. food hall is like school hall, no view or even nice experience to enjoy the sea. You have the 3 meals time like in school. Anything else the whole day is via one single point at the bar that is always crowded and you need to queue for 15 mins to get a drink or even water! And the service is not good after all the waiting, they don't want to give u 2 drinks, just 1!! In all inclusive hotel.. you can not get water!! No fridge in the room! So if u even buy ur stuff, u can't store them well! No beach for hotel, u go to public beach, u need to BUY all you need for the beach even towel and rent a chair or so to use! After all this.. u paid a big amount of money that i see a total waste! Porec is a nice place.. just choose your hotel carefully!!! I will add pictures later

Zorna all inclusive is a very nice hotel, pictures dont do it justice. The lobby is fully renovated so is the restaurant where u eat breakfast lunch and dinner. The hotel is very clean nearly spotless! The staff is very welcoming from the reception Sanja is nice and helpful. From the lobby bar Mira is so nice and always wearing a smile on her face. The rooms are pink its true but very clean with new toilets, the rooms are good. the hotel is in the middle of the Zelena laguna and is the most central. Just a step and ur on the beach. Free activities included in the price as bike rental, pedalboat, tennis, basketball, pingpong. Ice cream included the whole day. Snacks at night. The food is good and tasty for all inclusive u Will find a variety of chicken, fish, pastas, meat, pizza etc. the only thing needed more is animation at night, but we were here beginning of june thats why there Wasnt a lot. There is Mini disco every night and flipper game and biljard in the animation room. The terass facing the beach and sunset is a plus. I usually only stay at 4 and 5 stars hotels but zorna 3 stars was more than enligt for us family of 2 adults and 3 children of age 12 & 13. we had A blast and the hospitality at this hotel is everything 😃😃😃

If you've been in turkiye then porec and hotel zorna are a bit dissapointing. The food is oke, but the personnel is not so friendly and I would not go back to that hotel. The rooms are small, unlike the photographs. And rethink before you go to the beach without shoes. The rocks are pretty painfull and slippery, wich makes it uncomforteble to swim.
