I spent all my summers visiting Lanterna Sunny Resort as a teenager and have a lot of nice memories to the mentioned place. Resort is still the same as it was back in 90s. Apartments are big but still old fashioned, poorly furnished so I think its about time to do some modernization in the future. Accommodation met or needs but it cold be much cheaper for what you get. Stuff was very friendly and the beach is very clean and not so crowded.

We arrived from Pula airport earlier than expected but was allowed to check in straight away by the friendly receptionist. The reception and cafe have been slightly modernised but the shops area is very old fashioned and strange with pictures of a strip club on the wall, which REALLY panicked us. There was a long walk to our apartment and the signs was a bit confusing. Our very basic apartment was on 3rd floor of a paint flaking block with 1 bedroom and the most uncomfortable faux leather sofa bed my daughter has ever slept on, but it was clean and we were supplied with fresh towels and sheets a few times during our week long stay. The apartment itself needs a bit of updating, it was a bit musty in places and the bathroom could do with some ventilation, an air conditioning unit would of been good as we was there in a heatwave and it was far too hot at night and I am paranoid about sleeping with doors wide open as the bugs love to bite me. Also, even though you can store valuable items at reception for an extra cost, a small safe in the apartment would of been very useful . The area is basic but very beautiful and has gorgeous clear blue sea, perfect for snorkelling off the rocks and absolutely stunning sunsets, the best view is down by the lighthouse. There was quite a few groups of summer scheme teenagers whilst we was there but they was very well behaved and would just go down to the beach area of an evening to play music, but all went quiet at 11.30pm the latest. Lanterna is part of a large complex containing several other resorts on the peninsula. Sunny Resort itself doesn't have many facilities but we found ourselves rightly or wrongly walking through the wooded footpath to Tamaris Resort where we used their lovely heated pool and pool bar. We also carried on walking to Camping Lanterna and enjoyed some of their nightly entertainment. There is a road train that links all the resorts up and a couple of times a day another one takes you up to the Tommy’s and newly opened Plodine supermarkets. You can walk over to Tamaris and catch a boat over to Novigrad plus there are buses that will take you into Porec. We think this Resort has real potential and we absolutely loved the relaxed calming atmosphere it has and will definitely return as it was fantastic value for money.

I honestly expected more of this place for the price I paid. Description and photos on the website and Booking are inaccurate and misleading - to illustrate my point, look at any photo posted by the "resort" and then imagine adding 20 years and thousands of guests going through the room without ever refurnishing it. Everything smells old, the place is dirty, beds are very uncomfortable, walls are paper thin. Shower head was covered with lime scale, the drain was clogged, the towels smelled weird. The room was hot as hell and I had to "break into" the balcony as the door was broken. I couldn't leave any valuables inside as the front door seemed very insecure. Our one night stay was one night too many. Never again.

Dear Doktoricahu, We are very sorry disapointing You that much with the state of our apartments. Even if it is a 2* product the price is highest at july and august so in combination with a high demand (fully booked) the prices tends to be misleading on expectations. Thank You very much for the information regarding the photos. More comments on that are lefted by users so we did new photos, that will be changed soon. For valuables we have safe boxes at the reception and invite our guest to keep their valued things there. we are sorry again. Best regards

THE APPARTMANTS ARE NIGHTMARE AND SO ARE THE EMPLOYEES!!! No TV, no radio, no wifi, no nothing! Broken stove, spiders, andt and dirt all around! The surroundings of the building is full of trash, cigarets, beer cans, napkins...The building is falling apart - the apartments are neglected, outdated and worn out and the most important - very poorly cleaned. The inside was indescribably cold, and the wind was blowing through the windows and the doors. There were ants all over the place and hair from previous guests. This place is a disaster! I went to the reception and hoped to get another apartment or a hotel room. All I got was incredible rude and impolite head of reception! They did not want to change the appartment nor return the money!!!! His behavior was exalted, arrogant, insulting, and rude, which is not appropriate for some receptionist. I know that the price is low and I did not expect 5 *, but for staying in this piglet - they should pay us toi stay there!!! The night was terrible, it was extremely cold, there was no additional blankets and no heating. In the morning we woke up in the anthill, when I wanted to warm the milk, the stove did not work !!! We picked up the things and left early! And we are never comming back! This was my most negative tourist experience in my life!!

Dear daisylian Thank You for taking time to write this review. We are truly sorry that we disapointed You so much. There is a need to point out few important facts. In Lanterna Sunny Resort we do not offer TV, radio, aircondition or WiFi. If these are a must, please choose nearby Valamar Tamaris Resort villas. In Lanterna Sunny Resort there are part of apartments called SUNSET that are equipped with TV, and there are 3 WiFi spot in the village open for guests. 1. Near the recepcion, 2. near restaurant Marina, and 3. near restaurant Delfin. If some of our guest finds broken stove, spiders or dirt, please report to an employee or on the reception and we will clean up, repair or offer an other apartment to You. Best regards
