We decided to travel the coast of Croatia but wanted a starting point where we didn't have to worry about accommodations. Our travel agent, Roxanna of Travelwise in Kamloops, BC put us onto Gargamelo Pension.

Tucked away in a quiet and quaint residential area, we were pleasantly surprised by the obvious care the owners have lavished on their property. With spacious rooms and dining area and a marvelous pool area, it was a relaxing delight to stay here, so much so that we extended our stay at this place from one night to three nights so that we could explore the surrounding area knowing that we had a great place to come home to each night. Slavko, the family owner's son, made our stay that much better. Versed in multiple languages, he was a wealth of knowledge, both of the history and the local geography. When prompted, he gave tips and tricks of visiting his beautiful country. Humble and personable, he also offered editorial comments of the status of his country.

Only small caution is that they do not accept credit cards, only Kunas and Euros. But, Slavko was willing to delay payment until we had a chance in our three days to hit an ATM (by the way, never use a standalone unit, always use one that is attached to a bank). It was extremely pleasurable being treated as a welcome and trusted traveler. Also, the rooms are not very quiet; one can certainly hear one's neighbors plus hall noises (people sure enjoy slamming their doors here!) and some street noises.

Room tip: We heard that a balcony room was a good choice.

This place had an excellent service. The younger man (who spoke english) was everywhere and was extremely helpful and nice. He was the hearth of Gargamelo, made everyhting work and everyone enjoy their stay.

The rooms are very basic and quite woren, but clean and has everything that is needed. The swimingpool area is clearly newer and is very cosy and beautiful. The menues here are again the same than everywhere in istria, and the food (flavour and display) is very home style.
But the overal price of this accommondation is in line with the room and food.

I was in a roadtrip with my family (spouse, 3 year old daughter)

We needed a room for one night and found this place from Tripadvisor.

We called them for the reservation (6PM) and luckily they gave us very competive price for a stay.

We had a room in topfloor with Two big beds, balcony, table/4chairs, small kitchen and bathroom.

There is also swimming pool and small restaurant in a hotel.

The Service was very good. The food in a restaurant for OK and prices were very reasonable.

Only Minus they had was, that the restaurant menus were only in Croatia, Italian and germany. Not in English, but helpful waiter/receptionist/everyman Kindly helped us with the order.

Hotel/restaurant is very basic - but clean and nice.

For the restaurant and b&b i could give 3 stars - but comparing the prices in area (value for money) i'll give 5*

Stayed 2 nights at Gargamelo in a pleasant room with balcony and street view. Clean and good air con. Nice quiet area. Owner of Gargamelo extremely helpful and friendly with directions to surrounding areas. Breakfast buffet plentiful. Pool area very pleasant on return from beach.
Close to (in a car) Porec centre, but also to beaches with free parking. There are sun beds and shades if you require for a reasonable fee. Lovely little cafe bar for lunch.

Would recommend Gargamelo for a short stay

No Tips, only Compliments. Please keep up the standard.
The owner is the Face of Gargamelo and he is doing a perfect job. He welcomes you, he is there for the answering of your questions during the day. He is there at dinnertime. He is just perfect.
The breakfast is plain but surely OK, The room was convenient, clean and big. The beds were OK. The Pool is superb!! Lot of channels on the TV and free Wifi What do you want more
