Very nice hotel in one of the nicest location! Amazing view from the rooms with balcony. You feel like cruising in a sea. We stay with half board and breakfast was usual with many choices of cheese and cold meat, omelet and veggies, fruits and Slovenian fresh yogurt with homemade jam. We went for dinner at 9 and they serve us from the menu not buffet style dinner. It was really nice dinner with delicious traditional dishes. Spa was great! Tea room after treatments " must do " ! Very nice bar downstairs. Friendly staff. Very quick service! Recommend for two because there is nothing to do for kids. Total relaxing 5 star hotel.

This Hotel is located just at the point of a peninsula, nearly isolated. No road between seashore and Hotel building. It is a huge complex-11 floors high leaning on a steep hill. You enter right on top Level, where the reception is located and then move downward by Elevator to your assigned floor and room. The rooms are of medium size, quite nice. Bed is good and the Environment is very calm and natural - good sleep garanted. What is really spectacular- when you sit on the balcony high directly above the seashore . The bathroom is fine, nothing special to be reported.
What is really excellent: the Food. We had dinner buffet and selection and taste were definitely above expectation. Same is true about breakfast: good coffee and excellent offer in quantity and Quality. Very interesting: Fonda's bio-fishfarm for seabass nearby and salt mines.

While being settled in a marvelous location the hotel is unfortunately tired. It had better times and needs a thorough renovation.

Nevertheless I'd share some details:
1) Before going do review the price offers (eg, via booking.com the price was better than directly with the hotel) even if you visit a conference there.
2) Reception is attentive and helpful.
3) Rooms outdated with the very small bathroom (no separate shower cabin). It is advisable to ask rooms on higher floors (due to pleasant view) and to avoid a sewage smell from outside (my colleague complained about that).
4) Restaurant is fine, but decoration is rather old-fashionable. Breakfast is good (coffee not).
5) Parking is free for guests. Be aware that you have to take a card from reception to exit parking (no sign, no info when arrived from reception unfortunately, made an empty run to take a car).
6) It is less than 5 mins walk from the ground floor (which is on a seaside) till free bus to Piran city centre (goes frequently 7am-11pm as I remember).

All in all the hotel is acceptable for conferences (due to good conference facilities and enough space) but I'd give a thought if going there privately.

I spent a couple of nights at the hotel as I was attending a conference in October, which is pretty
much 'off-season'.

A pity the pool was under maintenance, but then again, the sea was still available for a swim. Just at the back of the hotel, you have a particular area for sunbathing and swimming. Dressing gowns and slippers were available in the room.
I didn't try the spa inside of the hotel either, so I can't comment on that. A colleague was quite surprised (in the positive way) of the gym-area, so I guess that was fine as well.

Breakfast times are from 7 till 11 and there's a wide variety in offered food. However, my 'english' breakfast never got completed and the same sausages did taste a wee bit different the day after. I didn't have other lunches or meals in the hotel, as there are plenty of restaurants in the area offering something for everyone.

The service was good as well, I only had to contact a few times the staff and they were happy to help me out.

Wifi was pretty stable as well.

There's a bus-stop nearby to the north if you want to go and visit Piran (close enough to go on foot as well) which is a free navette and there's another one nearby eastwards, from the public bus transport, if you want to go whichever direction.

Going further down to the south, there are some bicycle rentals, in case you'd want to cross the border with Croatia, which is less than 10 km away. I didn't find one really close to the hotel, but I guess that's just because it's off-season.

Room Tip: Try not to having a room located on the first floors as the only thing you'll see are people passing in front or, in the best case, some trees. Besides this, I believe that every room has view onto the sea (and Croatian coast).

Came here for a conference and although in need of a little updating, it is fine for a holiday. Having said that it seems that the majority of visitors were either there for conferences or as part of a coach/holiday tour.

Lovely spa, nice swimming area in the sea in front of the hotel and the indoor pool was good too. The fitness centre was a little too small. It needs more equipment.

The room I had was clean and tidy, just a little too warm - the air conditioning wasn't terribly efficient, but as I visited not in the height off the summer, it was bearable.

The balcony is very nice, and lovely to sit on in the afternoon with a long, tall cold drink.

The room could do with tea making facilities and more English channels on the TV. At least BBC World News or one of the American news channels apart from just CNN.

Love the dressing gowns and slippers, essential as you have to leave the hotel to go to swim in the sea.

The restaurants are rather overpriced and the buffet for 22 euros is terrible value for the quality of the food. You would be better off coming out of the hotel turning left towards Portoroz and eating at the "News Cafe" (about 5 mins walk away) - cheap and edible!

The breakfast buffet needs a lift. It looks and tastes old fashioned as if it was cooked in the 1970s!
Choices for breakfast are a lot, but they are the same every day. I was only there for 7 nights, and I got bored of the food. Really? - 4 different types of sausages? How about baked beans and fried potatoes for a change? Waffles? Sautéed mushrooms? It's great to have 4 different types of strawberry yogurt, but at the end of the day they are still just strawberry yogurt!!

On the plus side there are lots of different types of sliced cold meat and ham, and cheese and there is a person who makes pancakes for you whilst you wait - brilliant! Maple syrup would be good though.

The hotel is almost equidistant between Piran and Portoroz. I prefer Piran; quaint and not so touristy. Portoroz appeared to me to be a little too "chavvy" ! You can get to Piran by the free bus, but the walk will only take about 15 mins. Nice restaurants, particularly "Pavels".

Overall, the hotel is lovely and if you like hotel based holidays it's the place for you. No sandy beaches but good swimming. Hell of a long way from Ljubljana but worth it.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors are best.
