Hotel Laguna Materada
Ranked #8 of 33 Hotels in Porec
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Just spent two weeks combat training at the Materada (more on this later)the hotel is Fantastic, exceptionally clean thanks to an army of friendly, helpful, smiling cleaning ladies, the food is extremely good and varied and the Restaurant is very well presented with numerous serving stations, we found the staff to be helpful and they would teach you useful phrases in Croation . The pool area if that is what you want is well laid out with plenty of sun beds,and Bikinis everywhere but for you Red Blooded males rushing to book think not of Bridget Bardot or if you prefer Cheryl Cole more Nellie the elephant and Nellies Mother. The combat training comes in at mealtimes where yours and my favourite nationals and their neighbours to the east of them take part in war games in a charge to be first to the food, this is not a place for the fainthearted or acts of chivalry or apologies which often result in a violent reaction St George himself would have said to hell with the dragon and let it rampage on but this aside the Materada is a fantastic package hotel and well worth visiting.

We have just returned from a wonderful week at the Materada .

On arrival we had a blip in that our suite was not available which was disapointing however the staff were apologetic and we were given our suite the following morning.
The suite was perfect for us - a family of 3, our daughter had one room with en suite and we had the other one also en suite. We had chosen a side sea view but actually got a sea view - fantastic view.
The food was very nice and varied , the only negative was that it was very prompt finishing time breakfast finishes at 10am so drinks machines were turned off at 10am the same with dinner.
The hotel has a wonderful location on the beach - not a beach as a UK person may expect , concrete with stairs going into the sea, our 8 year old daughter did not find it pleasant but if you walk to the left of the hotel there is a more child friendly one.
Porec is about 40 minutes away walking or a 10 minute walk then 5 minutes on the touristic train.
There are a few restaurants to the left of the hotel and they are very cheap and the food is delicious.
The Jet 2 rep Esther was also very helpful and gave us lots of information on the area which made our holiday fab - thank you Esther.
Overall a fabulous hotel in a great location would definately recommend.

Room Tip: Suites with a sea view are fabulous much better than the room only.

We have just returned from a weeks break at this hotel. The rooms are basic but spotless, towels were changed daily and the air conditioning throughout the hotel was very welcome. The entertainment was quite good. We have been to Croatia before and the entertainment had been horrendous so on a par this was good. You could get a lounger at the pool and the bars were priced fairly. The food in the restaurant was very varied and tasty. Free wine, beer or soft drinks with your meal is great too. On the downside, the shop didn't stock any snacks for during the day and as this is half board, you have to walk to the sports bar or another eatery at lunchtime. Also I was a bit freaked by the brashness of the decor which was a bit 'The Shining' for me, but that just added to the adventure and was in no way a negative. Overall we had a fabulous time in beautiful weather with friendly people.

We had a bus trip from Austria to Porec to the Laguna Materada from the 30th of May to the 2nd of June and let me say everything was perfect!
The hotel was completely rennovated everything is brand new and on the latest and greatest design stand. We didn't book seaside but we got seaside. We had a perfect view to the sea but also to the pool. The balkonys on the rooms are fitted with glas so you have a perfect view to everything. On the room there is also everything brand new also a flat TV is here. The only weakpoint is that there is no WLAN in the room. You have to go to the lobby and you have to pay extra for that. The rooms has climate control and the food is also very good. We had breakfast and dinner and with the dinner the drinks (non alcoholic, beer, wine) are free of charge.
We are also very lucky with the weather. Rain and thunderstorms only during the nuight! We had also a very nice walk to the citiy of Porec it is abot 3 Kilometers and it is a nice walk and also the city is pretty nice. We decided to go back with water taxi they showed us some small island and they make a lot of fun with us. They brought us back near to the hotel so we had a lot of fun.

All in all a pretty clear reccomendation for the hotel, the pretty nice poolside, the very good food and the nice sourroundings, we enjoyed every minute of our stay.

Last but not least we are also very happy with the service personell. We had a addititional bed in the room but the mattress was not okay. I went down to the reception a ask the clekr for help, I went back to the room and after 30 seconds the chambermaid comes with two new mattresses. We took both of them and after that sleeping was like in the 7th heaven.

Again a perfect choice and again I am a luky guy the second hotel in Croatia and the second brand new rennovated hotel.

I guess this hotel should have at minimum 4 stars...

Room Tip: Seaside in the middle (eg room nr. 349) has the best view

We stayed for a week at the beginning of September. On arrival which was shortly before 9pm after a very long transfer which we were the last drop off, we had just enough time to go to the restaurant for something to eat.
Good points are the restaurant has recently been renovated and it was really lovely, the terrace area was relly nice. Food was really good and there was a great selection on offer both at breakfast and evening meal.
The communal areas are really nice and the outside bar looks as though it had recently been renovated. We only caught the end of the entertainment on a couple of occasions but everyone seemed to be enjoying it.
Staff are all helpful.
The gardens are kept really nice.
Bad points (In a way)
Bedroom was a little tired and could have done with updating,( although we did have a sea view which we had paid extra for.)
There is not much around the hotel although you can walk about 10 mins down the road and there are a couple of bars there.

We were a bit dissapointed the morning after we arrived to find that we were the only English in the hotel and we did not really have anyone to chat to, though we were only there for a week.
Our Jet2 rep Elspeth was really good and offered to move us to another hotel if we wanted but we decided to stay at Laguna Materada as we had a nice sea view room and the other hotels we were offered did not have any rooms with balconies.
As stated earlier we arrived late at night and were the last drop off as the hotel is one of the furthest away from Porec, going home was another long transfer as we were the 1st pick up.
Porec itself is lovely and we went to eat there on a couple of nights for a change. You can get the tourist train into the centre but it is a 10-15 minute walk from the hotel to get the train.
The weather was mixed and we had quite a bit of rain, although we were told that this was unusual for that time of year.
All in all we had a nice relaxing break and we would go back to Porec

First of all this huge complex is best suited for famillies with children.
It is nice located and the outdoor areas are fine and clean but crowded.
The hotel it self looks a bit old the pink and peach are not my favourite coloures, but the restaurant must have gone through a facelift.
All rooms are ink breakfirst and dinner. The dinner buffe was really good and plenty of choices.
What made me dissapointed was the slow and unitressted service at the front desk. From my experience one of the worst.
One example was that it was impossible to have my invoice with some extra details. I have over 150 hotelnights a year and this was the first time that it was not possible. The lady even accused other hotels of "blackmoneyhandeling", when I asked to add my company name on the bill.
Another annoying thing was the low quallity and high sounded show that take part at the poo area until 23.00. Impossible to avoid.

This hotel is the last one on this side of Porec and takes around 40 mins to walk into town. There is a small "train" but it gets very busy and you have to walk for about 15 mins to the stop.The hotel bus runs during the day (at a cost) but not during the evenings for some reason. The evening food is reasonably varied and of good quality with free beer, wine and soft drinks. However the breakfast is the same every day, they could include some alternatives like beans, tomatos, mushrooms, kippers and maybe pancakes and mix things up a bit to provide more variety, the quality is fair. The pool area is good with plenty of sunbeads and the gardens are lovely. Getting in and out of the sea is not so easy for some of us "oldies" as the steps from the concrete are not quite long enough. Most of the guests here are German, Russian or other, but the staff do speak english so we could be understood. The rooms are a little on the small side but adequate, the bathroom had been refurbished. No english channel on the tv. All in all we enjoyed our stay and would come back.
