Stayed for a week, and had a good break. Arrived at the hotel to find the seaview room that we'd paid a supplement for hadn't been allocated to us. Sorted that out with minimal fuss (apparently there were 2 rooms booked for the same surname for the same week....not quite sure we believed that) and our room was decent enough, if a little dated. No air conditioning, plus the only safe available was chargeable and near reception; many 3 star hotels would provide both facilities in the bedrooms as standard today. The room wasn't massive, but adequate. The balcony made up for it.
The hotel food was good - we don't book halfboard as a rule, but this was the only option on this occasion, so having paid for the evening meal we ate it. Breakfast and evening meal always gave a good choice, although it does get a little boring after a few days; all hot though, and plenty on offer with stocks replenished regularly. The pizza bar was good all week. The 10% discount on food & drinks for Thomsons guests was welcome.
Good size hotel swimming pool, and the sea is only 5 mins walk away (no beach). Try the land train once, but it's only a short walk to the old town.
Good value for money; think we've seen all that Porec has to offer, so unlikely to return, but would recommend the hotel.
Just keep your fingers crossed, though, that you don't get a room underneath an ignorant guest who thinks it's ok to smoke/ shout on the balcony at 6.50am in the morning....and at 1am too....
