Visited with my wife and 3 children (7, 5 and 3).
Stayed in a beautiful villa over looking the sea.

The Villa
The villa was immaculate, loads of storage and everything we needed for a weeks stay.

Pool
Fantastic pool with 2 great slides which my 7 yo son enjoyed. Very clean and well kept.

The food
Fantastic buffet selection, probably one of the best I have experienced.

Drinks / All inclusive package
The only down fall in my eyes. Ordering a drink is a faff as waiters have to enter the order into the system, which then goes to the bar and at times took too long for my drinks to arrive. I have had far better experiences in other AI hotels when it comes ordering your drinks from the bar.

All in all a lovely resort, outstandingly clean with great food!

This resort is brand new, situated on an island in front of the town of Porec. Valamar must have invested a lot to make this place so beautiful. You see and feel the luxary everywhere. Our villa was situated on the back of the island next to the shore. We looked out on the open sea. One of the best views ever for us.
Staff is very friendly and helpful and most of them understand/speak basic English and German.
Towels were available at the pools and beaches. Although we didn't use the service, there is a possibility to reserve your seat at the pool. Good news for the people who otherwise get up at 4 a.m. to put a towel on the best seat.
The food in the restaurant was good. The show cooking is a great idea and like everything else, the (interior) design team did a great job in the restaurant. You even have the possibility to switch at no cost (or minimal in case of the miramar) to a fixed menu in one of the other restaurants on the island.
The island also has the fastest free wifi I have ever experienced.
2 downsides: the quality of the beds (matresses) are beneath standards. Every morning I had to stretch my back and neck to recover from my sleep. And I believe that sound insulation has not reached the area yet. So, you must be lucky with your neighbours.
But this place is worth a consideration for your next holding.

Spotless villa with a beautiful sea view. Private location in the quiet side of the island. The brand new villa(s) had a huge problem with the air conditioning. No bigger problems for us because of that. The weather was not very hot yet in mid June. The maintenance tried to fix it and hopefully with results:) for the next guests arriving later in the summer.

Friendly staff everywhere; especially in the kids Maro club and in the sports team!

Morning buffet at the Miramare pool restaurant was nice with less people as in the main hotel. The service was though a bit confusing; no orange juice and no natural yoghurt for the hole week even we requested for that. The waiters where not so interested of making some efforts to get the products for the next morning...

But overall the hotel meets very high standards.
