Swimming pool was nice. Food was great. Beach was close. The reception staff were just ok. When we got there, they required our passports [ or any IDs], and just said they would return our passports , on the next day. Without any other explanations, it made us a bit upset. When we asked for the reasons, they just said it was a rule, but the attitude was not that friendly. Also, the room was not cleaned neatly once.
Kids facilities Too loud music each night
Reasonable food/drinks however level of ingrdients can be improved in relation for cost of stay. Wet steps exiting the sauna site caused us accidental fall and injury. Instead of correcting the hazard by an anti-slip carpet or had rail the staff only placed a warning sign. Inadequate for preventing accidents. accidents.
lovely room, fantastic food, lots of activity Reception and bar staff could be more kindly. It is **** hotel. Some of them don't speak English.
Accomodation, food, cleaness, pleasant staff. Whirpool was always seized.
see To much smoke at the reception and on the way to the retaurant, anyway anywher...that was not in the prescription.
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.
The friendliness of the staff, from reception to restaurant to cleaning, everyone was positive and eager to please.
Lovely parkland location Bathroom cleaning poor and towels not changed for 3 days
cleanliness hotel reception staff were poor as they give us the wrong directions on two seperate occasions
the food was excellent the hotel outdoor pool was not available for use
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.
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.
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.
We have stayed there many times and it the friendleness and professionalism of the staff that we find most appealing. No
It is very convenient access to the beach. The view from the balcony is good and hot plates were also grate! No refrigerator in the room
Nothing in particular. This hotel was the most expensive (75 euros) we had throughout a 15-day trip in Croatia, yet it was the only one without air conditioning. The room was also one of the smallest we had on this trip.
Food was excellent, drinks also included. I was satisfied, every evening was possible to eat some kind of fish.
It was a nice hotel compare with price. for a short holiday is ok, very close to Porec. The bilding doesn't look very well, but was clean and the services was good.
Very friendly staff. Fluent in English and German. Good variety in buffet.
Staff, food, swimming pool, nice view ...
location, hotel gardens, friendly, helpful staff, evening entertainment, excellent breakfast and dinner buffets with wine and beer included, and the sporting theme of the hotel, good area for walking - will definitely return to this hotel.
Friendly staff, nice dining room and food Room was a bit old,shortage of sunbeds
variety and quality of food. staff is helpful and friendly. hotel is located in a nice park 15 mins walk from the beautiful city center of Porec. the hotel is a classic example of a soviet-style architecture -- you can feel the touch of soviet era everywhere in the hotel: bare concrete of walls and ceilings, general layout of the hotel, etc. You can hear what is going on in all surrounding rooms through the concrete walls. Those from the former Soviet Union will feel like being somewhere in Crimea or Sochi in mid 80-s. In our room there was no air conditioning (or even air vent). Air ventilation is one of the hotel's weak points - from time to time you can feel a vast variety of unpleasant smells.
The view was beautiful.
Close to the beach, pines everywhere, nice and quite place. poor evening animation for children. We always spent holidays at resort with animation programme as for children love minidiscos with all that veo, veo and waka, waka staff. Announced minidisco was just music (not typical one for children/ without any animation. However, our children loved miniclub animation in the morning.
We got there at 3:00am and had no problem finding the hotel. There were good signs on the road. All the rooms had balconys with tables and chairs. The property was not over developed as it would have been in the US. Very nice walkway along the shore. The weather was perfect. There is no sand beach which we knew before we went because Croatia does not have sandy beaches. There may have been a pool someplace on the property but we did not find it.
On picture look appartments very nice ,,,,alone,,,, But when you come there there are many appartments and crazy drunk students .... You can not sleep at night every day party whole day and night... Dont go if you wanna take a rest.....
Quiet place, clean, easy to reach by car from Slovenia.
sea view, location, staff, beaches
1, close to the beach 1. The apartment was no ready, unclean. 2. electric sockets are missing in the bathroom and in the room, bedside lamps are missing, 3. time to renovate all buildings - they were in very old school type
Beautiful beach, nice appartements.
Location, events, and staff. Sea View is not sea view, the trees definitely do not let you see the water!
There was enough space in the room with seaview. Within a 3 minutes walk you were on the beach. The beds were also good. You can also use the facilities of the campingside. However, a walk towards the swimming pool took us about half an hour. That's too far for young children.
An ideal location close enough to the town of Porec The fact that there wasn't any tea/coffee making facilities in our room
Location is good. Food have much variety. Room is clean and comfort, although a bit crowd.
Not suitable for young couples
We spent a week here and really enjoyed it. Great location with easy access to Porec town either on the "noddy" train or a 15 minute walk along the coastal path. Comfortable room with balcony overlooking the gardens, very quiet and peaceful. The breakfast and dinner buffet was the best we've had in any resort hotel. Staff were all very friendly and helpful...in particular Eleonora the room maid, Ivan the waiter and the brilliant reception staff who very kindly printed out our Ryanair boading passes (& saving us 80 euros.) Really a 10 out of 10 hotel experience.
Proximity to the beach was excellent, 2 min stroll. Food was also excellent plenty of choice with most dishes being cooked fresh in front of you. Very good facilities for families, play areas for small children, teenager clubs, trampolines, volleyball, swings climbing frames etc. Plenty of rental items on site e.g. bikes and Segways. The air con in the room was of little use. If you are in the room during the day then the air con is a waste of time you will cook. In the evening it is a little better but works out better to open the balcony doors.
swimming pool, food
Professional, Friendly and Helpful Staff ( A small point) Dark tinted glass in windows makes everything outside look depressing on a cloudy day.
The food, pool, temperature. It has no sea view. You can not take bath in the sea (it is full of rocks, is dangerous), but you can use the hotel pool with salt water, it's ok. In Romania the sea is great!!!!! If you chose to go in Croatia, stay at a hotel with pool, the sea is only for the view, it's not for takeing bath's in it.
Room was extremely clean and newly refurnished so the comfort was similar with a 4 star hotel (except the quite small tv and the lack of minibar - however both aspects where marginal for us). The buffet dinner included in the offer was exceptional: a lot of variety, very tasty and fresh. Really outstanding. Pool was clean and nice, the beach was really close, animation team was funny for the kid. The drinks at the buffet dinner where not included (not even water, coffee or tea) and where quite expensive. However due to the very good and variate food you could easily forgive them for that as overall it was extremely good value for money.
The half-board breakfast and dinner buffer was great! I was amazed by the size of the buffets.
the island with beaches without people
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.
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.
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.
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
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
Room ok, very good food (drinks included), good staff, close to the sea.
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.
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.
Food was excelent, wine was ok. Nice place at the pool. Clean room and facilities. Furniture at the reastaurant could be better.
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.
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
Helpful staff. Well run and maintained grounds and facilities. Exceptionally good buffet meals - good value too. Some noise from the quarry across the bay.
Good size room overlooking the pool and beach, unlimited drinks during meal times, easy access to Porec town.
Nice surroundings, the beach is very close. The hotel staff is helpful and flexible. The kitchen smell comes up into the rooms and the noise of the cooker hood also. We missed the refrigerator from the room.
Food and service are good, close to the city center. I can recommend it for families with small children.
Mini Club for kids, Dinner / Breakfast, Location Away from Porec town,
Clean and nice rooms, food perfect. Good location, near to the center. Sunbed and beach umbrella are charged. It should be included in the price. Beach was bit crowded.
Everything was perfect: the wiew, the staff, food and cleaning. I recomand this hotel and for the price. We stayed 7 night and we have a nice surprise every time: fireworks, live show and very gentle hotel staff. Try it!!!
Good location, excellent food, family friendly, friendly personal, nice design. A single room with extra bed was sold to us as a "twin-room".The extra bed was very uncomfortable, not suitable for an adult.When making the reservation be prepared that the full amount will be charged from your credit-card!
food was excelent!!! everything perfeckt!!! /
The Best in Novigrad
The location near to the sea
all not change the sheets in every week...
I've travelled all over the world and this place is one of the most relaxing places to visit and at a bargain price.
A family of 6 (3 adults and 3 kids), we really enjoyed our stay at Lanterna. Little to do when there is rain; a TV will help in this regard.
near to perfect beaches, Nice invironment. The entrance with porno-shops e.d. It was not to pleasant for a family,even with older children.
The apartment was close (200 m) to the beach and the water was nice. The room lacked charm but had the basic features including a kitchenette, which was useful for us as a family. Neighbors may be a bit noisy, but it was really not a big issue for us during our stay. The apartments are in two-storey concrete buildings and the whole place has a touch of Soviet-style era. However, it works well and we enjoyed our stay. The staff in the receptions were very helpful and we could extend our stay during high season with two nights without hassle.
The place is wonderfult but I did not like the apartment. I prefer another type of building, smaller and consequintly less crowdy. But of course this is only my preference
Fortunately, it was at the end of the season therefore the cost was much lower than before. The resort is very large, and if completely full, would be a different experience. Overall, my first visit to Croatia was positive, including Lanterna. Because it is a destination location, there is limited availability of options for eating without incurring a good deal of expense. Again, this is a resort, so this is normal and understandable.
Very clean and well equipped apartment with a nice balcony, located practically at the the beach The only missing thing that would make this apartment absolutely perfect was air-conditioning
Excellent location, friendly staff. Good facilities - restaurants, activities etc. Beautiful scenery No linen changed during our 12 day stay - excuses made regarding a broken washing machine but this was not good enough. Standard of accommodation was very basic and needs upgrading. If I was returning to Lanterna I would not stay at the apartments again.
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.
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
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)
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
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.
very nice for family with young kids. need a car.
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.
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 hotel is excelent, the swiming pools are very nice, the all inclusive system is good.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
I liked an arrangement, the nature and a food. I didn't like design of numbers, a modest interior.
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.
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.
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.
nature around the hotel, good location, close to the center more money was withdrew from my credit card
Design of the hotel was very nice.Easy to find.Room was very comfortable with sea view balcony.We enjoyed the swimming pool and the Turkish bath, in the evenings.Breakfast was average.We would stay there again!
The hotel was situated very well and generally was very comfortable. The brochure in the room suggested that food was available all day as room service. My wife tried to order food for the kids at 15.30pm but was told no food available. This was very disappointing. We also had to wait for 1 hour in the restaurant from ordering food to delivery, again totally unacceptable when there are 5 kids invloved.
the hotel is great - but I would never go there again, next time I will go to Dubrovnik area 1. the internet did not work all the time we stayed there. 2. the TV had only 10 stations, none in english, not even CNN
The Nautica essentially is very good value for money. The large rooms are fresh and well appointed with lots of storage space, air con, huge bed, and balcony. There is a good indoor pool and spa facilities and a large terraced bar and plenty of free parking. The walk into Novigrad is a bit grim, albeit short, and the breakfast was pretty poor. We did not like the look of the restaurant and there are some excellent places to eat in the town.
Beautiful Yacht harbour. Room is too dark and air condition not working properly.
the breakfast is to simple
The friendly staff nothing
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!
great location, helpful, friendly staff showers were really impractical
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.
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.
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
