This location is stunning, Porec is a beautiful town and well worth visiting.
The hotel though isn’t so great. Our room was minuscule with almost no storage space. We put the chair on the balcony along with the suit case stand as there wasn’t anywhere for them to go that didn’t impede our walkway (if I could have taken the TV from the wall and added it to the outside storage space I would have done). The restaurant wasn’t so hot, the choices were many but they were more like a school canteen than a restaurant.

There are many positives, especially it’s location which is fabulous, right up close to the sea. Walking around is easy and Porec Town is 40 mins away along the coastal path (easy, flat, well paved walk) and maybe 10 mins at most via a taxi or transfer (which the hotel offers free three times a day).
The staff were all great to us, didn’t see anyone being rude (as referenced in other reviews) but then we understand there are differences in the way people around Europe view manners. I’m more bothered by people who can’t stand in line than a chap who simply says “yes” instead of “how may I help you”.
Most importantly it’s clean. I’ve stayed in 4 star hotels that this place would beat hands down in the cleanliness stakes.
Would I recommend the loacation, without any hesitation.
Would I recommend the hotel, I would say yes but with some caveats about the room size.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade to a bigger room

Cannot fault this hotel , but there iare a few points which may put people off . Firstly the room we had was at the back of the hotel seemed fairly small at first but we got used to it and it was not a problem . Was advertised as a balcony with park view but it was more of a car park view with green scenery beyond . The hotel although located close to the seafront is a fair walk into the centre of Porec about 35 - 40 mins but there is a mini train which runs each day which is about a 10 minute walk to . Also a bus only once a day , I think it was about 9.30am . You needed to go into Porec to catch a bus to Rovinj , Vrsar and Pula . There are also plenty of companies doing boat trips to Rovinj , Lim Channel and Vrsar . The area is good for walking and also for cycling with most of the areas free from traffic . Hotel itself catered for all nationallities but was mainly German so don't expect a full English breakfast of beans mushroom tomatoes hash browns . Though eggs bacon and German sausage were available . Evening meals were pretty good with plenty of variety but we did feel you needed to be down in the restaurant before 7.45pm as they did clear some sections away at about 8pm . The area surrounding the hotel and beyond was very well maintained and,clean, and the town of Porec is a nice place to visit . If you like sandy beaches you will be disappointed though as they are all mostly pebbley , apart from one small sandy cove which was very crowded with families . Would I go back to the area and hotel again ? Yes I would but just bear in mind the above points which may not suit some people . Especially if you are not very mobile .

Absolutely rude staff! We spent a week in this so called 3 star hotel and we certainly will not be returning,the breakfast staff were the rudest I’ve ever come across,the breakfast was supposed to be til 10:00am but they actually started removing everything and covering the coffee at 9:45! I politely asked a member of staff(Pauline) for some butter as they’d taken it away at 9:50 and she refused! I asked again could I please have some butter for my 7 year old daughters toast and she reluctantly asked me”how many” whilst walking off a giggling with the restaurant manager! The room wasn’t cleaned for 5 days until we complained about this,no clean towels and we had to take toilet paper from the pool side toilet! Please avoid especially if you have children!!!
