The reception staff was very friendly. The Hotel is located very close to the beach. The hotel is surrounded by a park - enough trees and grass to rest your eyes, with a path running through it, by which you can get to the beach, a bar near the beach or just gor for a walk. The city center is in a walking distance from the hotel. The food was great, we especially liked the breakfast buffet. In the morning you could hear the moving of chairs in the dinning room in the room where we were staying.
What a great surprise! It was our first holiday in Croatia and we had no clue what to expect. This is what we found: hotel - very clean, great view over the sea (ask for a room with sea-view between levels 4 - 9), the food is super delicious (this hotel is not for those who are keeping a diet, as the desire to taste everything is huge!), the Porec city is at 20 minutes walking on the edge of the sea (great for a night walk). Porec (the city) - lovely architecture, great restaurants, clean (everything was super super clean), you can negotiate all prices for the souvenirs :) One equally important aspect: English, Italian, German are spoken by almost all people working in the hotel or in the restaurants, therefore it's very easy to get along. This is one minor detail that was fixed asap: the room we initially got had a common door with the room next to ours. Of course, it was locked, but we could hear all the talks/noises coming from our neighbors. We mentioned this at the reception and they gave us another room, no problemo.
Beautiful view over the sea, funny programmes, closeness of the beach resort There was a door between our room and another guest's room and we could hear every single word they were saying. (and other voices, too... )I complained about this to the hotel management , but instead of giving us another room, they told off poor people next door.
Mostly everything, very good! That we couldn´t check in when we arrived a bit early
I liked all! I would like to drink some tea during supper.
Great location, excellent food, friendly staff. This hotel has an excellent value for money. Food was perfect and can out-compare some 5 star hotels which I was in.
Very friendly and helpful staff, very clean and spacious room. The public spaces, the pool and the beach were nice and clean. Plenty of activities to choose from (biking, aerobics, diving, etc), lots of entertaining activities for the guests (band playing, welcome soiree). Delicious breakfast and dinner. Aside from the lack of a minibar inside of the room, everything was perfect. I would recommend the Valamar hotels to anyone who wants to spend a nice vacantion in Porec.
nature around the hotel, good location, close to the center more money was withdrew from my credit card
I liked an arrangement, the nature and a food. I didn't like design of numbers, a modest interior.
Location excellent, at the seaside, among pine trees, within walking distance of Porec. Beatiful walks all around, and many interesting places to visit. Meals : buffet, with hot food cooked on the spot, different choices every day, very good value The hours for the evening meal are very strict, and restaurant closes too early at night. Check out time also very early: 10 a.m.
The friendly staff nothing
The staff were universally kind, understanding and always helpful. We did not encounter any negative interactions on our trip. The rooms were immaculate and beautiful. Would definitely stay there again when we go back!
Perfect location. Lovely view of the marina. Really well located for old Porec, the Basilica and all the restaurants. Lavatory seat cover was loose and nearly came off. Shower temperature controls baffling. Air conditioning controls also baffling. Bar and restaurant area lacked atmosphere and was like a ghost town at night and lunchtimes. Having to telephone hotel to get in and out of the street leading to and from it.
location, nice room parking (only few cars can park in the front of the hotel, the real car park is 2 km far from the hotel, sometimes we have to wait almost an hour for our car to get), pool and the wellness were really poor
The view was fantastic! The room was beautiful. Everything was brand new!
Very friendly staff, fine views of the bay, very handy for Porec old town, very comfortable room If late arriving don't expect to get one of about 20 parking slots. The car park is 4 min drive or 15 min walk away, the staff will take you there anytime.
great location, helpful, friendly staff showers were really impractical
Great location, good-taste, nice and helpful staff...We had a great time here! I would definitely recommend it.
Rolige omgivelser,god service,rent og ryddig både inne og ute.Flott ryddig strand og strandpromenade.Meget godt fornøyd med forpleiningen (god,delikat og mye mat) Vi er veldig fornøyd med det som var.
Maten : ) samt profesjonellt og serviceinnstillt personale. Litt utdatert arkitektur utvendig, men det hadde ingen betydning.
Lett tilgjennelig til Proec og strand. Greit hotell, men man kunne ikke få spise noen måltider på terrassen. Litt innelukket matsal. Ellers var personalet lite behjelpelig med glutenfri kost. Muligheter til å kunne spise utenfor "lukket spisesal"
Reception not very friendly, two women waitress in the lobby bar very very friendly and helpful, thank you very much, all restaurant staff and service during breakfast and dinner excellent, Lack of hydromassage andsteam room, only sauna
I could not fault the resort workers service,friendliness and cleanliness the quality and variety of meals every sitting where excellent.The location to town is great for walking or local small train and has loads to look around with good food, bars ,boats ,stalls and shops.Very safe,clean and friendly with very mixed cultures.We also went to Dubrovnik for week which was very much the same.This Countries lovely. to go foward it could do with small facelift and expanded as loads of space around,a fresh water pool would be better.
Room ok, very good food (drinks included), good staff, close to the sea.
Buffet was excellent really nice food and lots of it. Kids liked the Kidsclub and entertainment staff were great. All staff very nice and friendly. Rooms were really clean and there was a lovely pool. Daily newsletter for entertainment etc. was really handy. No ramps for pool so had to carry pushchair up and down steps. All drinks in bar very expensive. Room booked was a "Premium Family Room" which was actually just 2 double rooms with connecting doors not bad just expecting something else.
Convenient location, sport facilities around, decent food Nigt life atmosphere
Food was excelent, wine was ok. Nice place at the pool. Clean room and facilities. Furniture at the reastaurant could be better.
Great value for money,good surroundings,weather is super,can make Lots of trips with à car. Hotel staff very helpful and friendly.Bikes free,really all aspects is à big 10 Could not really find anything neg.
This hotel did not meet our expectations. It might be fine for active families but for us it was noisy, the food was below average and the room was small with no pleasing quality. We left after our first night.
Friendly staff, nice location near to the see, free wi-fi, nice Maro kids club, very good food: a lot of seafood, meat, croatian food. Good quality for our money. sometimes there could fly incests into the room (we've got mantis) - it will be better to have some protection on windows, colors of the room are not interesting. Shampoo is included only first time on check-in, later if you stay longer you should buy it, or use your own, very strange.
The hotel offered services that were very handy to have such as: opened kitchen (the guests saw the food being cooked), currency exchange services, newspaper stand, books rental, postal box and organised bike rides. The drinks during dinner were not taken to the table at the same time as the meal. The drink unfortunately arrived much later when the meal was almost finished.
Sentral beliggenhet,. Gode parkeringsmuligheter. Vennlig personale. Fantastiske måltider.
Rent og fint. Hyggelig personale. Flott beliggenhet. Fin utsikt. God mat, mye å velge mellom, mye frukt og grønt. Flott for små og store barn. Fine basseng ute og inne. Flott treningsstudio. Store rom med gode senger. Aircond. som man kunne styre selv. Terrasse.
Location for old town
Excellent location, room was very comfortable and nicely decorated. The outside of the hotel needs painting
Excellent location with good parking It seemed a bit tired decoration wise - Balconys need sprucing up
Friendly staff. Made me feel at home, not as foreigner
very kind stuff, nice room location, not for summer holidays
We had a very good and pleasent experience by staying at your hotel. It was nice after driving almost 1600 km (in two days) from Belgium to get at midnight very easily a good cup of tea. Thank you very much. No complaints
Pris, størrelse på leilighet, adgang til basseng på Hotel Zagreb,Maro Club for barna, skifting av håndklær hver 3. dag, skifting av sengetøy 1 gang pr. uke. Det eneste vi ikke var fornøyd med var stranden. Vi har en gutt på 1 år, som kryper, og stranden nedenfor hotellet var fryktelig steinete, og uegnet for små barn. Men denne hører jo ikke til hotellet, så det er jo ikke deres feil.
Fine omgivelser. Nærhet til Hotell Zagreb med pool og restaurant/bar med veldig hyggelig personale. Hyggelig og hjelpsom personale i resepsjonen. Nei, vi hadde et perfekt opphold.
Veldig bra beliggenhet med gangavstand til Porec, og til strand. Stille og rolig. Fint med privat terrasse. Vi leide en leilighet på bakkeplan og det var dårlig luft når vi kom. Litt muggent. Møbleringen av oppholdsrommet var ikke bra, overmøblert. Leilighetskomplekset trenger nok litt oppussing.
location' rooms and hotel and resurants are good no special comments
this hotel is lovely to look at and stay at, everything was clean and modern looking, enough space for a couple in the double room, breakfast and dinner were both of very good quality, always fresh, always pool loungers free, good transport links into main porec town as hotel is in zelena laguna, cannot fault anything about this hotel, would definitly go back if i went to porec again
very nice design, very good breakfast, good position not enough space for wardrobe, we were there for two nights, if we came for a week it would be a big problem
The rooms were decent though not large and the bathroom was good. Our room had a balcony with a seaview that was very pleasant. The staff were generally friendly and helpful. The food at breakfast and dinner was not good and certainly not what I would expect in a 4 star hotel. The coffee was awful. The evening entertainment in the bar was very poor - 2 guys going through the motions at the end of the season.
close to city and nice view of the sea at therestaurant. And from the other side peaceful and silent. no air conditions in the corridors of the room and no fun in elavator.
very nice for family with young kids. need a car.
The breakfast was good, not always the coffee..it is a new building so was fine. Room are to small, live music is old fashioned, booking.com lied about the seaside room reservation what we have faced at the reception from hotel.
Room very clean, pool area nice, in the surrounding area you have many activities for children, good connection to Porec (boat + minitrain)
Modern, luxury hotel with friendly helpfull staff, Very clean. Nice pool infrastructure; The Buffet meals both Breakfast and Diner were excellent and tastefull. The Coffee during Breakfast was undrinkable; Animation team was useless and oft disturbing. But personally I'm not into animation anyway.
Helpful staff. Well run and maintained grounds and facilities. Exceptionally good buffet meals - good value too. Some noise from the quarry across the bay.
Everything was perfect.
location,number of facilities at that place, well arranged surrounding swimming pool not applicable for babies (another one available only for Tamaris Club not Residence), difficult access to beach beds and umbrellas
Outstanding view, very accommodating staff, in a charming town. Excellent Summer and Fall vacation spot.
Breakfast wonderful - siuation in Porec perfect and central to all needs - boat trips shopping etc Two messages sent to me were not able to be "retrieved" even though I phoned desk and asked for same - not satisfactory!
The view is very nice, nice equipment, friendly staff food in a la cart restaurant
We stayed in a one bedroom unit in the Residence. The unit was a good size and only a short stroll to the seaside. Valamar Residence is located about 200 metres from the crystal clear Adriatic sea and has lots of activities to keep anyone busy (from children through to older people). We stayed in early October which was very uncrowded.
Hotel was well-appointed and newly refurbished. Seemed much nicer than other hotels in the area. Nice breakfast and good walking location. Rooms quiet even though it was located in a busy area. It was helpful to have hotel parking in an area with little parking,, but may be confusing to guests if they were arriving during evening hours.
Quiet and clean Staff somewhat unfriendly. Naturist Solaris is a nudist resort and while we approached the beach with our bathing suit the life guard screamed ordering us to unwear our suit. Beside the abnormal behaviour and aggressive scene, this was a terrible experience.
We were in a suite without AC. I let the window of the balcony open to get fresh air from the sea, and on the third night my wife woke me up when somebody entered our room to look arrounf at 3.30 am. I expelled him as he had no chance to bring anything with him. Otherwise the meals are very good, the personal is more than helpful. Every evening we could dance with live music, and the sea is always fantastic for a naturist couple in Croatia.
i did not.It is for nudist,i did not understand that.i left next day. like in a camp in high school
relax, comfort, quite, beautiful nature, pleasant people, home atmosphere, clean territory and nice beach
Good hotel. Good food, diner with free drinks including beer, wine... etc Perfect parking place. Appartaments with big bed, balcony and kitchen. Confortable beach. its paradise for nudists.. No wifi, internet only on reception
food was excellent not really sea side
Det var rent og ordentlig i leiligheten. Ganske nyoppusset, grei standard. Vi hadde problemer med at aircondition-anlegget bråkte såpass mye at det var irriterende om natta.
Nære til byen, sjøen, matbutikk. Rene og pene leiligheter.
Beliggenheten ift. strand
Dårlige senger som bør byttes ut
Praktisk, familievennlig, nær sjøen og restauranter Noe bedre renhold
New hotel, rooms are beautiful. You get everything you need, sleepers and toothbrush included. Staff is very nice and helpful. Aircon doesn't work properly. Heating works too much.
Brand new hotel, very nice and clean room, very good breakfast and excellent staff.
We stayed there for four nights and liked the service and the friendly staff very much. Being the first bookers on www.booking.com for Hotel Mauro the welcoming gift (white wine, grapes) which we got from the Hotel was much appreciated! :-) Also, we liked the modern and new interior design, the view from the balcony and the location right on the harbour promenade. The lovely city centre with its small and cosy restaurants was within short walking distance. Breakfast was OK and the pasta at the hotel restaurant delicious. It was very good to have a free parking lot in front of the hotel, but a proper remote control for the gate barrier would have been nice... ;-)
The kitchen has a microwave oven and a spacious fridge with big freezer.
price and that we could bring our dog Language barrier and how to check in when no one was there. Our phones would not allow us to make a call in Croatia. Area around hotel could use some work to clean it up. Not as nice as we hoped.
Summarized everything was ok. Unfortunately the air-conditioner was very noisy.
They have very nice nature around hotel.Animal are accepted
apsolutely value for money
The apart is very clean. Satelite tv does not work properly
comfort there`s no reason for me not to like something about the hotel
Good facilities at a good price Difficulty in finding Cervar Porat and english communication.
It was a laid back atmosphere and close to the beach. Helpful reception staff when needed. Supermarkets close by. cerrvar porat is quite small and a safe place. First impression, not as clean as i would have hoped, but all in all, not a bad place if expectations are not high.
The hotel is excelent, the swiming pools are very nice, the all inclusive system is good.
The staff was friendly. I had an all-inclusive scheme, better name is fb. Any way the food was really excellent for a price I paid. There were great choice of dishes and beverages. In few words the right schedule for this hotel is: breakfast-see-dinner-sleep-see-supper-Porec. Porec is a quite attractive town to spend time there with children and without. The beach was not really well equipped and see was not clean afternoons. The pool is rather small.
Room cleaning was poor
The most friendly staff that I have ever met in any hotel ! At the reception very helpful people, Fantastic food. Rooms are very comfortable, fully equiped. Well situated. But one more time I have to say I am impresed by the personel !!! Swimming Pool could be a little bigger and there should be beach towels in rooms.
the food is great.
Great location, excellent pools, good variety of food.The gala dinner was very nice. The room was too small, but anyway we didn't spent so much time indoor .
Very good value for money. Varied buffet meals, lot of sports facilities, like tennis, mini golf, table tennis canoeing, etc. Very friendly staff (except for reception desk). Reception desk staff not very friendly. A less surly attitude could improve the first and last impression a lot.
Extremly good food.
I appreciated the free bar, the hotel employees and the hotel price the location of the hotel compared to town is quite distant..
Staff, cleanliness, food, swimming pool. In one word everything was ok. Perhaps too small room.
The gin was teh worst gin I have ever tasted, We couldnt drink it.
Beautiful new hotel, everything was working properly yet. Small but very nice room with balcony, view could have been wider but at least we were able to see the sea. But the best thing was booking for only 2 nights, I could have not stood the negatives for a week or two long... Each and every member of the personnel was like zombie, and we are talking about 15-20 persons from the reception to the bars and the restaurant. The 3 animators must have been aliens or they were not aware of this strange need-to-be-zombie rule. Food could have been rather mediterranean, I had thought I liked fish, but not the way it was prepared in this hotel, it was like shoetread...
Nice, new hotel. Large rooms en nice location The food contained too much fat. Desk employee was verry unfriendly
The hotel was not really ready for visitors. A lot of mrenovations ongoing, kitchen not really open etc...
We loved the family atmosphere, the wonderful hospitality and especially the calamari!
great owners, always someone around for whatever needs, apartment was very clean, dinner prices are reasonable even low if I compared what I got in town for same price a car is needed to get in town or on beach, 2 apartments sharing balcony
