We have just returned from a 10 night stay at Hotel Palazzo. Having paid for a standard room, requesting a sea view if possible, on arrival we found we had been given a spectacular sea/harbour view room with balcony. The room and bathroom facilities were first class, very clean and spacious with a large flat screen tv and fast, free wi-fi. All staff were very helpful and friendly throughout our stay, in particular the bar staff were very attentive and we enjoyed some nice conversations with them. As mentioned in other reviews, the buffet breakfast is outstanding. The selection and freshness made it almost impossible to choose each morning and the view from the terrace was beautiful. A real plus point was the availability of fresh fruit for guests, this could be found in a constantly replenished basket at the poolside spa throughout the day. We enjoyed two evening meals in the main restaurant, I believe the chef trained in a 3 Michelin starred restaurant in Italy before joining Hotel Palazzo. The food once again was faultless and excellent value considering the quality of dishes on offer. The sommelier was very helpful when selecting wines for the dishes ordered and it was apparent he had good links with many of the local Istrian wine producers. The only negative would be that the pool area is a little on the small side with a 'cosy' arrangement of sunloungers! Also, because of the hotels position on the peninsula there was a constant trickle of people walking past the perimeter of the hotel pool area, again making privacy for sunbathing difficult. Porec itself is a wonderful town, full of charm and character with something for everyone. We thoroughly recommend visiting the Istrian region of Croatia. Having seen the other hotels in Porec and experienced Hotel Palazzo, we feel it most certainly is the best hotel in Porec.
