First a word about the resort - if you're bothered by wasps this is not the place for you! We travelled with Balkan Holidays and this seemed to give us the room with the poorest view in the hotel! The Diamant tries very hard to be a good quality hotel, it has a decent gym and spa centre with indoor and outdoor tennis courts and other sports facilities. Food was a good variety, good quality and very well laid out for a buffet, using circular stations rather than a long line. Bedrooms were fairly average, balcony and bathroom were tiny and cramped which let it down.
Holiday overall was spoilt by our last night, hotel was hosting a private function of some sort so we were rushed through dinner, entertainment usually finished around 11pm every night but this night it was right below us in the restaurant and having to get up at 5am for our flight were most displeased to find on calling to recepetion that it was due to go on until 2am that night! We complained and were moved up to a higher floor at the front of the hotel, though we didn't see much of it it was a far superior room.
Entertainment at the hotel and sister hotels was ok, more for background noise than something to watch. The walk into Porec takes about 10-15 minutes and is pleasant enough. Porec itself is very beautiful with a few bars and restaurants, though everything does seem to wind down early.
Trips out and about, we went to Venice for the day which was great, took advantage of the restaurant lunch organised by the boat. Also went on a Lim Fjord cruise on the boat Kristian which was a lovely relaxing experience.
