Hotel Laguna Parentium
Ranked #2 of 33 Hotels in Porec
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 July 2014

This was one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in. Upgraded to a larger room and so much space. Lovely bathroom / wetroom too. Felt very luxurious. All areas of hotel spotless and plenty of choice in the restaurants. Entertainment team were all very friendly and not too pushy if you did not want to join in the activities. Porec is not as traditional as some of the other areas I have visited in Croatia and hotel location felt a little bit modern, although lots of green areas and very clean and safe. My only gripe with the hotel was we often had to wait an exceptionally long time at the bar - sometimes 20 minutes wait to order a drink. Think they needed to put extra staff on here. Otherwise had a wonderful time and would definitelly rcommend.

A really good choice of hotel for a relaxing week in the sun. The hotel interior is very well done, pools and jacuzzis a stones throw from the sea, garden and grounds immaculate. Ideal for sunbathers and ferry jetty 1 minute walk away so extremely handy for ferry to Porec (and the tourist 'train') or tour boats. Very handy to have tour office in hotel lobby to book trips. Breakfast was really good, especially if you get there around 8/8.30 as the freshly cooked french toast, waffles and omelettes cooked to order were great. Lots of cooked options (good quality bacon and sausages) as well as breads, pastries and fruit etc etc. One negative was the juice which was poor diluting rather than fresh juice. Buffet dinners were good for buffet with lots of choice particularly of meat and fish for main meals. Desserts very disappointing however, all bland cream sponge cakes so left them after first few nights. Also pity the A la Carte restaurant was closed in early June as we would have like to dine there once or twice during our stay for a treat and variety. Hotel seemed busy enough so strange not to be open. Good choice of wine, cocktails and other drinks, nice lounge and terrace area for after dinner drinks with pleasant piano music. Staff really friendly and are doing a great job. Check in was a little bit odd as no real welcome or information provided and check in experience could be improved to provide even a brief overview of hotel and facilities. It is a big hotel so glad we went in early June to avoid inevitable crowds given quality of hotel. If you book I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Depending on price sea view room recommended

Perfect choice... Also the beach is spectacular.

This hotel was a very nice place to spend a relaxing week. The hotel itself is spotless, and security are always walking around - not that we saw even a hint of anything untoward.

Location: really nice secluded grounds a few miles out of Porec, just slightly too far to walk. You can take a boat or a little tourist road train. Both are just outside the hotel and end up at the harbour in Porec. Both take about half an hour and cost approx £4/person each way so it depends on what view you want. They run from around 9am until 10pm, after that you'll need either a road or boat taxi.

Hotel Facilities: The rooms are well decorated, spacious and very comfortable. There is a nice pool with a swim up bar, the hotel gym was very small, but you're probably not there to workout! The spa is one of the best hotel spas I've been to, the sauna/steam rooms are the hottest I think I've been in as well. As with most European saunas, no clothing allowed, just a towel to sit on.

Food: Breakfast buffet was a very good selection - breads, cereals, fruits, cold meats, cheeses, fresh omelettes, pastries, and loads of hot options. Evening meals were also very good. 2 buffet restaurant (but in the same room), one doing fish, the other meat/vegetarian food. There was a good selection and it faired every night - something some hotels struggle to do. The one thing that bugged me was staying half board does not include any drinks so just be aware that you will end up buying drinks with your meal. Prices seem to vary - expect £2.50 for a bottle of water and £8 for local wines (which are very drinkable!). Beers are also around UK prices.

We tried the restaurant for lunch 1 day, and weren't too impressed. There are plenty of nice little restaurants or snack places a short walk away, and they are cheaper as well so I would suggest taking a stroll out of the hotel at lunch.

Staff: Most guests seem to be Russian or German, while most of the staff will do at least basic English we found that using our rusty German skills was much easier to communicate with. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, Igor in the restaurant even remembered our room number when ordering drinks in the evening!

If you are looking for a nice place to spend a relaxing time then I would definitely recommend staying here.

So glad I chose this hotel...so much perfection....giant, giant size comfy bed, very large room with walk in wardrobe. Silent mini bar. Quiet air con. So perfect sleeps.Only lacking in no dressing table mirror and light to get the eyes done! Very comfy hotel in all of it's spacious interiors both in and outdoors. Pools areas perfect with 6 separate whirl pools lots of very good quality sun loungers that don't tip up. Gardens a delight, shady trees and' no keep off the grass' signs. The sea walk around hotel much nicer than other Porec areas. Gentle strolls around the bay at night to a wee bit more life so pretty and clean. Only a piano player as entertainment in June...but so relaxing is this entire complex. Eating was easy but choosing wasn't. Well you can't put a spoon of everything you fancy on your plate,,can you.There were the odd dishes that lacked in quality. Ooooo banana bread and butter pudding for breakfast mmmmmm!! A shame they aren't very creative with their desserts, nothing to ooh and aah to there. Staff ALL perfect in all areas of hotel. Other bits...Didn't fancy 15 hours round trip to Plitvice Lakes tour. I missed Lake Bled tour also as it goes on a Monday. So we went on a fish picnic and so got to Rovinj which is a lovely place but on a hill. I found Porec so much nicer and on the flat and so easy to hop on the boat to from by the hotel. We went 3 times .A different gentle tour is the Parenzana Train trip. But still a hilly village Motovon, to walk up to. Yes, so glad I did my homework to chose this really good hotel. Thank you parentium.

If tripadvisors rating would be on a scale of 100 I would rate this property 92 or 93, but with the five star scale it is definitely a five star

I can highly recommend to couples looking for some quality relaxation in a private retreat. Maybe if you are travelling with kids aged 6 or beyond who would need mote outdoor activities you shall have a second thought.

First the property is perfectly located on small peninsula surrounded with a huge garden and the sea of course. The beach is not private for hitel guests, but we did not find this to be an issue. Don't expect sandy beaches, this is Croatia. In exchange the water is crystal clear. If you want a different swimming experience you can enjoy the two large infinity pools in the hotels gardens overlooking the sea. Or if it is too cold outside, or you happen to come in winter time, you can swim inside too :-)
There are a few saunas too, a small gym but I would encourage better run on the alley next to the sea.

Restaurants serve decent food, not spectacular but good. There is huge variety for both breakfast and dinner. You have an alacarte option too for lunch maybe, but I can hardly imagine you will get hungry after that huge breakfast :-)

Alternatively there are two small but good restaurants nearby serving you ég a good take away pizza to grab while laying in the sun.

When it comes to the rooms, the view can make a difference. Make sure you get a sea view room, or maybe even better a garden view. The sea view overlooks the pools too, could be a bit noisy. We'vé had a garden view, partially looking at the pools , with the sea visible directly from the bed, so not that bad way to wake up :-) the "classic" rooms overlook the nicely decorated roof of the reception area, but yeah you will feel sorry not to have the sea view, so if you have an option take the view.

Just to formulate some improvement ideas, too.
The free WiFi is great and highly appreciated. But I had to constantly re-authenticate which was annoying.

The pools and the pool bar are closed / cleaning starts at 6, maybe that could be extended. There is nothing better than snipping a cocktail and enjoying sunset from one of the pools or the small Jacuzzis around. You can still use the pools however.

The ventillation in the bathroom was just too laud and annoying, I don't know what other options there could be, but would be nice to be improved.
I would have loved to have an option to make a coffee in the room, so I can snip it in the morning on the balcony

Overall some leaflet describing the hotel facilities would be nice, as I believe there are plenty of things available which might be hard to find out on your own.

At checkout we've had some hiccups with the payments for our son who is still below the age of 2, so I was expecting it foc, but initially there was a 50% price charged on him. This was finally cleared from the final bill, so all ok, but I suggest you clarify right from the beginning or with your booking agent.

So a few minor things but overall extremely nice place, will return one day, and can warmly recommend.

A hotels rating is always subjective , but in my opinion the staff are what makes or breaks a holiday , and in the case of the Laguna Parentium its 5 star !. This hotel looks the part , the area its set in is stunning , the food is varied and of a high quality , and the staff from top to bottom are friendly , efficient , unobtrusive and a credit to themselves and the management. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone. The whole package of the surroundings in Zelena Laguna and the walk into Porec are fantastic. I do sympathise with Colin H , I was on the same floor as his party , but I found it as the most relaxing , peacefull , secure feeling place I have been in years ; would recommend it to all , families , olders , everyone. Example of the detailed touches....a guy comes around the hotel with a hawk , to chase away the seagulls !! I could go into detail about rooms , food , value , amenities , walks , cycling , Porec , harbours ,boat trips etc etc but you would think I was being overenthusiastic ; so just go yourself and experience it.
