Stayed here mid May 2014 and would definitely stay here again.
The location is right on the harbour where the boat trips go from and you have free use of the boat over to the island where its sister hotel resides.
The hotel was very clean, staff were all very helpful and the food was varied enough and of good quality.
Behind the hotel is the old town of Porec so all the bars and restaurants are within easy walking distance. Traffic is limited onto the harbour front so you don't get loads of traffic going past.
There are great walks to be had on a mainly flat path in both directions along the coast.
If you take the catamaran trip to Venice it leaves almost right outside the hotel. All other coach trips leave from the bus station which is only 5-10 min walk away - if you have problems walking the hotel may take you in their mini bus.
I was there for a fencing competition and needed a taxi to a venue 3 miles away, when I asked reception to call a taxi they took me free of charge in the mini bus.
The only downside to this hotel is no pool, but you can use the pool on the island and at another hotel 10min away.
Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough for value for money and Steve the holiday rep was extremely helpful.
