The Molindrio is located in Zelena Laguna, a small village consisting of hotels, campings and vacation rentals, just a few meters from a small supermarket, souvenir stores and several bars and restaurants. Across of the hotel is the marina, with a small beach (stones & grass), a small supermarket and restaurants. Parking is near the hotel and costs 1 euro per night.
The center of Porec is about 6 km away and can be reached by foot, by a little train (20 kuna per person, 1 way - approx 20 minutes), by bus (price unknown) and by water taxi (25 kuna per person, 10-15 minutes). Just outside of Zelena Laguna are large grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, etc.
Many excursions leave from Zelena Laguna by bus or by boat (Plitvice Lakes National Park, Venice, Brijuni Islands, Postojna Caves, Fish Picnic, ...). Nearest airport is in Pula.
We ended up in this hotel after the hotel we had booked 6 months earlier called us at the evening of arrival (8 pm) that our 2 rooms in their hotel would not be available until the next day. As it would already be late when we arrived in Porec and we needed a place to sleep, we had no choice but to accept their solution to our problem. As we arrived past 9 pm, dinner was no longer served but for those arriving late, a cold cut (meat) platter was provided.
We spent the night in standard rooms with no balconies and no views at the back side of the building. Both rooms looked rather depressing and dirty (dust, stains, hairs, bathroom trash can was not emptied, ...) and we could not imagine having to spend more than 1 night there.
On the positive side: the breakfast buffet had a big selection of cold and hot dishes and served good coffee. The hotel also seems to have good animation for young and old.
The price of our rooms was Euro 85 for 1 person per night, half board. Very over priced for the quality of the room. We noticed this especially when we moved in to the hotel of our choice the next day that was only 25 euro per person per night extra and was of a whole other level. Since it was a last minute mess-up, we might have ended up in so called "emergency" rooms and these rooms might not give a correct view of the actual condition of the rooms in the hotel.
