“Lovliest place around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2010

Hotel's location is really fabulous, in the shade of tall pines (home for a lot of cute squirrels) occupying small peninsula it feels like you stay in some kind of fairy tale. But if you are not fond of seagulls' cries early in the morning you'd have to close you windows every night before going to sleep (actually they scream all day periodically and look quite stupid doing it).
The rooms are clean and small, but comfortable enough. As someone already mentioned "seaside view" doesn't mean that you will actually see that sea (perhaps only by trying to stare between the tree branches) but this option proves that your balcony will not face others' (so that you won't be able to appear naked there from time to time).
The personnel were very helpful and charming (even maids who you haven't seen before always smile greeting you).
The breakfast was the best ever. I gave it the first place among all hotels I'd been to. Huge amount of very tasty pastry, two kinds of scrambled eggs, 4 kinds of wine, fresh fruits, even pasta (with meat sauces though which I couldn't try being vegetarian). That was very important because, as we discovered later, town restaurants serve really bad cooked meals for high prices, so we would prefer paying for full table in the hotel if we knew.
Sunbeds were 20 kuna/day (1 euro = around 7 kuna) and the beach was rocky with a rocky sea floor, which was really painful to walk, we even heard someone treaded a sea-urchin and had to be taken to hospital. But there are deep spots where you don't walk the floor and either jump or use a ladder so the problem got solved, you can also buy special shoes. As long as I know problem with beaches applies to all Croatia.
The hotel's located near the town of Porec and there are many different ways to get there. The cheapest and most pleasant is big taxi boat for 15 kuna a person going every hour.
So all in all we had a wonderful time, the place is almost perfect and seeing other hotels' locations we decided that ours was the best.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2007

We used the facilities of the hotel during the day while staying in Porec and immediately fell in love with the peaceful surroundings, the good food, wonderful clear water and clean beach. The hotel is clean, fairly modern and has good amenities. The sport and entertainment on offer is there if you want it but not intrusive. The lovely setting among pine trees on a small peninsular outside of town is ideal for a restful holiday. One word of warning: I'm not sure if it would be suitable for families with young children, as the rocky coastline is not easy for non-swimmers. There are, however, beaches nearby (ten minutes walk) which would be better for young ones and nervous swimmers. The town is a 20-minute walk, but there is a tourist train and bus boat during the main season. All in all, my first choice among the hotels in Porec.

We stayed at Laguna Galijot in Aug'2006 and really loved it! The location is superb - it occupies green and pretty peninsula coverder by wonderful pine-trees. The air is just magnificent, the sea is clean, the landscapes are picturesque!
Also, Porec is very closed - just 20-30 min walk.
The food is good in the hotel. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby. The one a bit dissapointing thing was the room itself rather out of dated (especially bathroom). But this is just minor remark - all in all the hotel is highly recommended. Our holidayw were great! We will definitely come back!
