the food was excellent the hotel outdoor pool was not available for use
good fitness club, smimming pool and dzakuzi but in spa was nude season and men and weman were naked there together :)small, not very new room but still cute :) food is not bad too :) centre of porec lil bit far from the hotel.
The friendliness of the staff, from reception to restaurant to cleaning, everyone was positive and eager to please.
A fabulous hotel - very relaxing, plenty for my teenage sons to do and the most comfortable ever!! Well worth a visit and would like to go again next year. No
Excellent breakfast, dinner, spa/massage and sports facilities. Enjoyed that the buffet food were prepared directly in front of us by excellent cooks. Balcony was very small and old, could not make much use of it. Outside building did look poor, big and boring concrete brick.
Spa & Gym facilities great. Value is good with Half Board option ok. Decor in rooms is very dated & in urgent need of refurbishment, Corridors are the same. Not enough evening entertainment, nor enough seats in the bar area - some people had to stand. Relies on weather being good
Great facilities and location. Large rooms. Friendly staff. Lovely food.
cleanliness hotel reception staff were poor as they give us the wrong directions on two seperate occasions
The inside of the hotel is very nice. Breakfast and dinner buffet are great. A lot of options and everything is very tasteful. There is an outside and inside swimming pool and the hotel is located in a very quiet (touristic) area. The sea is only 4 minutes away by foot. The outside could use some freshing up.
Lovely parkland location Bathroom cleaning poor and towels not changed for 3 days
Hotellet var trist og slidt. Maden var smagsløs. Værelserne var meget små.
Fantastisk morgen og aftenbuffet elkedel på værelset
Super godt hotel! Fint værelse med virkelig rent og ret stort badeværelse. meget venligt, hjælpsomt personale.Maden var fantastisk og vi glædede os til at spise der hver dag. Fin pool med saltvand, meget tæt på strand og aktiviteter. Byen lå en gåtur på 20 min derfra. Godt hotel til afslapning og sport (vandsport, cykling) Kan klart anbefales! Vi kunne lide det hele ved hotellet. :-) Vær dog opmærksom på at det meste er klippestrand, evt. stenstrand (som andre steder I Kroatien).
The hotel provided an enchanting location which was easily accessible by the ferry that was provided by the hotel. Ferry service was extremely regular. Hotel food - excellent. I never expected to eat there throughout my stay but I just couldn't help myself. Everyday a different selection to tease my tastebuds. Wireless internet in rooms would've been welcome + a fridge / mini-bar / kettle.
The setting was superb the hotel whilst not modern was clean and tidy the staff were generally very pleasant and all told a good destination that I would recommend to others. The staff were friendly and helpful apart from reception who seemed rather disinterested and not entirely helpful. The food was of a reasonably good quality but lacked variety in meat and not enough fruit was available. It was ok for the children but the adults became bored with the buffet .I do not agree with hotel guests being charged extra for loungers outside the pool area.
the island with beaches without people
Dejlig morgen og aftenmad. Rengøringsdamen på vores gang var rigtig sød. Værelser ok rene. Hotellet ligger i smukke natur omgivelser med mulighed for skygge og sol mellem store træer. Dejligt havvand. Inventar og værelser ikke vedligeholdt. Gammelt og grimt. Det ses at dette hotel er over 50 år gammel. Der er ikke gjort meget for at vedligeholde det. Alt alt for mange måger der skriger og larmer døgnet rundt. Troede at der ville være mange forskellige gæster på hotellet men der var flest pensionister hvilket ikke er så sjovt når man rejser med teenager. For meget klor i poolen. Personale i receptionen var nærmest ligeglade med os.
Mostly everything, very good! That we couldn´t check in when we arrived a bit early
I liked an arrangement, the nature and a food. I didn't like design of numbers, a modest interior.
nature around the hotel, good location, close to the center more money was withdrew from my credit card
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.
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.
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.
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.
I liked all! I would like to drink some tea during supper.
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.
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.
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
great location, helpful, friendly staff showers were really impractical
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!
Great location, good-taste, nice and helpful staff...We had a great time here! I would definitely recommend it.
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.
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.
The view was fantastic! The room was beautiful. Everything was brand new!
The friendly staff nothing
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 food is great.
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.
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... ;-)
Brand new hotel, very nice and clean room, very good breakfast and excellent staff.
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.
Staff, cleanliness, food, swimming pool. In one word everything was ok. Perhaps too small room.
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 .
Nice, new hotel. Large rooms en nice location The food contained too much fat. Desk employee was verry unfriendly
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.
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...
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..
The gin was teh worst gin I have ever tasted, We couldnt drink it.
Very good kitchen for a buffet and very firendly service Still developing hotel infrastructure, something from the 80's - which longs for renovation. Beach chaislongs rented, no beach towels.
The best hotel for sea and the nature relax!
Very nice gardens. The rooms have very old fashioned decor
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.
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!
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.
Outstanding view, very accommodating staff, in a charming town. Excellent Summer and Fall vacation spot.
Good location, at 15 minutes walking from center town, friendly staff, enough parking places, excellent quality for all services, good insonorisation rooms, etc.
Good hotel at the seaside with a large park and nice swimming pool. Better than expected.
Large apartments, polite stuff, sea view
Very Nice. Big room. Very closed to Beach. just 2 mins from Apartment. none
- location, parking - smell in bathroom
The residence is located right at the beach. There are restorants near by as well as food market. People are very friendly and ready to help. Sound isolation is very good. Nice big balcony with the view of the sea. The bed sheets are being changed only every 4-5th day.
The hotel is very well positioned for the beach. The rooms are practical, but old. The hotel food was average.
We were able to relax on our balcony overlooking the sea yet could take the car out and explore the countryside and the historical sites. It was a short walk into the town of Porec where there was lots of atmosphere. The sunsets were spectacular. The outside of the apartments were very unappealing.
nice location Beachchairs were not for free as promised. View at the beach from the appartments was impossible due to vegetation.
jeg synes at hotellet var rent og pænt. Service i receptionen var der dog ikke meget af, vi oplevede flere gange at personalet i receptionen var under normal standard. Tag nogle af de meget søde og servicemindede rengørings og vedligeholdeses folk og ansæt dem i receptionen.
