We had originally booked the Hotel Zagreb in Porec for a week through Valamar Group but with a few days to go they informed us by email that they could not honor the booking and offered us various (initially unsuitable) alternatives. After a lot of emails we came up with an acceptable agreement to stay at the Zagreb for 2 nights and then move to another hotel (we had to pay the taxi to move across town!). The Zagreb is a good 3* hotel and we were happy with it. As we went late September we did not require air con but I can see that in hot weather the room would be unbearable without air con. The reception staff were very friendly as were all staff. The food was really good though meal times were a feeding frenzy if you got your timing wrong. The guests were mostly over 60 and on coach holidays and 99% seemed to be German. The background music played throughout the hotel drove me mad and it was like being trapped inside a lift for the duration of the stay. The pool was fantastic and was not sea water as others have stated. The room and all areas of the hotel were so clean. We had a junior suite which was a good size and the bed was huge and really comfortable but the furniture was so cheap and looked like it had been furnished from a Pound shop. The walk into Porec is about ten minutes and not quite as pleasant as others had said as It does involve going past a derelict factory and a bus depot (try the walk from the other side of town along the sea – now that is a nice walk in). That aside it is a good hotel and great value. We would stay again (assuming our booking is not changed) though I would have real concerns of the lack of air con if the weather was in the high 20s.
