Hotel Laguna Parentium is located in Zelena Laguna, a resort village consisting of hotels, campings, vacation rentals, a marina, a small supermarket, souvenir stores and several bars and restaurants. Parking is at the hotel premises and costs 1 euro per night.
The center of Porec is about 6 km away and can be reached by car, 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, 1 way - 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 immediately loved the spacious, airy lounge area with comfortable seats and relaxing colors. There was an incident that involved a much delayed check-in but this was solved in a fair manner by the hotel manager. Our nicely decorated rooms were located on the third floor and both had full sea view with a good size balcony. Both room and bathroom were very clean and spacious with lots of space for clothes. The beds were super comfortable and the air conditioning could be regulated for a perfect temperature.
The pool area was perfect! There are 2 outdoor pools of very good size, at least 3 hot tubs, a pool bar, lots of sunbeds both near the pools (with plenty of umbrellas) and on the lawn under the pine trees and near the sea. Pool staff is very friendly and helpful. The grounds are kept immaculately clean! The whole area breaths luxury and relaxation and all staff go out of their way to make it perfect for the guests.
Animators organize some activities (Croatian lessons, Zumba, dance, yoga,..) in the background, one is not obliged at all to participate.
Breakfast and dinner are served buffet style in the hotel restaurant. Wide selection of cold and hot dishes for breakfast.
Dinner buffet has many different cold and hot dishes, and many of the dishes are cooked on the spot. However, the quality was not always very good and food tasted a bit bland at times. The buffet at gala evening (Friday) was of a much higher level and was truly 4 stars.
Note that instead of eating dinner buffet style, one can get a voucher to be used toward dinner at Bacchus, the a la carte restaurant. We very much enjoyed the wine dinner at the Bacchus restaurant and we highly recommend it! Wine Dinner takes place on selected dates and can be reserved at reception. We loved our evenings at the hotel, sipping from a nice glass of wine and listening to wonderful live music.
All in all a wonderful hotel with a relaxing atmosphere and pleasant and helpfull staff.
We will definitely return and we highly recommend the Parentium.
