“Beautiful area of Croatia”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Hotel Laguna Mediteran is set in a beautiful part of Porec, surrounded by lovely trees and grassed areas. It is less than 5 mins walk to the rocky coastal area which has small man made bathing areas along the coast. It is approx 20 mins walk into Porec. There is a local tourist train that goes from the front of the hotel direct to Porec at regular times throughout the day. The hotel is very clean and the staff are very friendly, with most if not all speaking very good English. The rooms can be on the small side but are very clean and comfortable. The food in the restaurant was the only let-down, most of the hotel guests are from Germany and the menu would appear to be based on what they prefer to eat, there is free beer and local wine with all meals. we stayed as a couple and simply because of the poor food menu we would not return to this hotel. We would however return to Porec as it is such a lovely town to stay with lots of excellent eating places and bars in the area.

We had a fabulous holiday at the Hotel Laguna Mediteran , which was located within easy walking distance of Porec , the hotel was light and airey our room was very comfortable and clean although we would have liked a balcony ! All the staff without exception were very friendly and helpful and this gave the hotel a very nice ambience, the food was very good and varied and there were always plenty of sun beds around the pool , the grounds were very well maintained , altogether we had a wonderful holiday and hope to visit again in the future !

Hotel Mediteran is in a beautiful location surrounded by trees and close to the sea, with a short 20min walk to Porec. Or you can catch 'train' which runs regularly.

The hotel is very clean and the staff very friendly but the only thing that let it down for us was the food - quality and variety. As the majority of the guests were German there was a pork on the menu every day. Salads were good but after one week you got very fed up with the same stuff. Having said that you get what you pay for.

Great restaurants in Porec and the surrounding area. Would go back there again but not to this hotel because of the food.

Room Tip: Have a sea view, not front of hotel where there are no proper balconies.

Hotel Laguna Mediteran is located in a tranquil location of Porec which is approximately 50 minutes coach transfer along the new modern motorway from Pula Airport. The transfer to and from the resort and airport was without any delays and with no traffic either way on each route making the journeys pleasant and relaxing. Porec is a small town on the edge of the Adriatic with cultural historic monuments. All the hotels are located in different parts of the lagoons and are set within fragrant woodlands of cedar and oak tress close to the coastline. All the hotels are linked by man made tracks which hug the coastline making it easy to walk along or hire a bicycle.
The Hotel Laguna Mediteran is located 100m from the rocky craggy coastline with man made sun bathing platforms.There are no sandy beaches. You have to pay for the sun loungers which we feel is a bit mean when you are on holiday. There are no signs to inform you of this. Charges for sun lounges depends on the location so the cost varies from 25 kunas (HRK) or 35 kunas (HRK) for a days hire. Currency is a better rate in Croatia so you can change currency easily in the hotel.
The Hotel Laguna Mediteran is based in Plava Laguna Resort (Blue Lagoon). It is easy to explore Porec - city of mosaics a 20 minutes walk along the seafront promenade. The hotel entrance has a modern, bright, airy, contemporary style as did the reception area. The hotel had been newly renovated.Check in was efficient and immediate however your passports have to be left at reception but are collected in the morning. The reception staff courteous and polite. We were given a swipe card to use to get in and out of our room. Our previous email request for a high floor and double bed was adhered to and we were pleased to find our Room A356 was on the 3rd Floor with a large double bed. We paid the extra supplement for the Sea View and it was worth it. Our Room A356 had a Sea View, Pool View and was overlooking the hotels grounds. The balcony was large enough to have 2 chairs and a table on it. It is definitely worth paying the supplement for a Sea View and a balcony. Not all the room have balconies. The rooms above the entrance to the hotel have metal shutters so this gives the impression that these room resemble a prison. So definitely pay the extra cost for a room that is not enclosed and screened by the metal bars.Our first impression of our room was very positive. We felt it was very clean and modern. The bathroom was well equipped with hairdryer and a lovely modern shower unit. The double bed was very comfy and the pillows large and soft. The room had air conditioning. The flat screen tv has limited tv channels. The rooms was attended to every day with the bed being made and clean towels alternate days. The towels were of the thin type not thick nor fluffy. You have to pay extra for a fridge, kettle and use of the safe. We brought our own kettle and there were ample sockets to use. The room positioning depends on the time when the sun shines. Our Room A356 had the afternoon sun from 3.3pm to 7.30pm.
The Hotel Laguna Mediteran caters for Half Board Plus which means that every meal time breakfast and evening meal all the drinks are available free. Champagne was also provided and I did have champagne for breakfast .The coffee is awful so bring instant coffee with you. We found the meal time were absolutely manic with pushing and shoving. We were very shocked by the other guests rudeness and manners. The hotel need to address this problem. The lay out of the food placed all over the dining room only adds to the stampede for food at meal times. We have never experienced this before. Suggestion would be to attend meal time later to avoid the 'rush'. We were also disappointed that on arrival we would have liked to have eaten lunch in the hotel but the choice of menu was limited to sandwiches of 3 types only from the bar area. There was no room service. Outside the hotel we ate at Jedro but were disappointed with the food choice and quality so we didn't eat there again. However we did enjoy lunch at Grill Alan located outside the hotel in great setting, Here we found pleasant staff and a good menu. The pasta dishes were lovely approximately 55 kunas per dish. Here you could watch the world go by with a panoramic view of Porec. Generally there are ample restaurants throughout the area some dotted within the woodlands around the outside of the hotels and also in Porec. We found 2 local bakeries in Porec and the food was very good, high quality and reasonable prices.
The Hotel Laguna Mediteran activities included twice daily aerobic classes in the pool with music. A Well Being Centre is located near reception and is managed independently by Thai staff specializing in massage and relaxation. Children were entertained by the hotel animation team. Outside the hotel there is an array of activities to do including diving, fishing, sailing, cycling, mini golf, tennis, paragliding, volleyball, water skiing plus numerous excursions to Venice for the day or Brjuni Island National Park.
Our holiday was about relaxation so we walked and explored the area and Porec by foot. To reach the town centre every hotel is a walking distance. The walking track is fallowing the shoreline and took approximately 15 minutes from the hotel.At night time the walkway is illuminated and it is safe to walk in the evening as there is no crime in the area.The Tourist Train is a good way to see the area and for a cost of 20 kunas for the whole journey from the hotel to the furthest point to Zelena Laguna on the South.
Porec Rise Up Festival 2014 took place on Friday 6th June and Saturday 7th June. The purpose built stage in Porec caters for all the music festival. The festival started at 8pm and continued until 5am. The music was heard through out the region. We attended the festival on the Saturday night. Danny Clarck a Croatian DJ played a fantastic set and as the sun came down over the harbour Danny played some wonderful grooves. It was a marvellous ending to our weeks holiday as we flew back to the UK Sunday 8th June.

When I first looked at the reviews and photos I thought it was a basic hotel and wasn't expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised!

This was me and my boyfriends first holiday together and I wanted it to be something different and special, which wasn't filled with young people partying and this place was beautiful!
When we were flying to Croatia, we saw a cluster of islands with light blue waters all around (looking like something from a magazine!) This got me so excited for our trip.
Our experience at Pula airport was fast and effortless, much better than Gatwick! The coach journey to our hotel was faster than expected which was good and only took 50 minutes.

I was wowed when we walked into the hotel as the pictures didn't do it justice, it was cool, bright and open which was so appealing. Our check in was quick, although I wasn't too keen about leaving our passport overnight as we shouldn't really part from them and we nearly forgot! For two purple our room was a good size, I wasn't too happy about having metal bars across our windows and balcony as our room felt a bit like a cage, I got used to it as we didn't spend too much time in our room. The barrooms are lovely! I was really impressed with the shower! However, the fact we had to pay for a safe key each day was quite poor, as we didn't like to leave money and our passports about. Our bed was extremely comfortable and I slept like a baby every night! The couple of downsides to the rooms were, the towels in the bathrooms felt a little like cardboard which didn't feel nice on my skin and if we ever got a drink from the bar and took it to our room, if it was up to the room cleaners the cups would sit there all week! Apart from that, the room was very good.

We didn't spend too much time at the pool as it was very quiet and felt like there shouldn't be any noise about! We spent about 3 hours total over a week about the pool, it was enjoyable when the water aerobics took place as it made the pool area a little more lively. It would be nice to have some music around the pool area, maybe not all day but to make it more welcoming. The pool was nice to take a swim in the afternoon as it was warmer but it was so salty I had to take a shower every time I went in. (It was saltier than the sea)

We spent a lot of time taking walks to the little town which was beautiful! Little cobbled streets and amazing views sitting in the restaurants on the harbour front. The only bad part of the town was almost every shop was the same, a knockoff bag and clothing shop, we found it hard to find something authentic from croatia to take back home. They had some beautiful Venetian mask shops which we wanted to take one home but got to the shop to late the night before. During the day, the town wasn't too busy but in the evening on the weekend the streets came alive with ice cream bars sounding like nightclubs and small restaurants nicely lit, it looked amazing!

Something to do it the town is defiantly take a trip to the church, you can walk up the bell tower and take some amazing pictures of the town and sea, you are able to also walk through the mosaic courtyard and see the original floors and walls. If you would like to visit this place, make sure you wear something to cover your chest, shoulders as I did not realise this as had to buy a scarf to cover up. There is a little road train that can take you from your hotel to the town and back again, it is a fun little thing to do and we walked everyday to and from the town which was quite long after a while and this made a nice change. I would defiantly recommend on buying some blueberry grappa - something they offer throughout the restaurants but I found it quite hard to buy some but it tastes lovely!
We took a trip to pula to see the amphitheater and it was a sight to see! I didn't enjoy the bus journey back as the driver had the heating on, it was very hot outside as well, the bus was busy and took a long time! It was nice to visit pula but apart from the roman architecture we saw it reminded me a lot of London!

Back to the hotel.. There was a shack that offered a variety of renting sports gear, we spent a day renting two bikes to ride along the coastline which was a nice thing to do as the bike didn't wear you out as much as you'd think, we cycled left of the hotel down near a wake boarding activity place, it was a beautiful ride to do.
We also hired a motorboat one morning which was a lot of fun! And the prices are very reasonable.

The dinner area was also good, when I read the reviews about it I didn't know what to expect but it was rather good and not as bad as everyone makes out. The selection was good and I was pleased with the food.
I would avoid the 6:30 sitting as you'll have to search for a seat.

The hotel offers a massage service which I would highly recommend getting. I had a traditional Thai massage and it clicked my bones and made me feel great after! The ladies who work there are very friendly and I was quite gutted I didn't manage to get two in!

This hotel is defiantly more of a 4* than a 3* and I would defiantly return again!

I defiantly had a lovely, romantic holiday away.

Just returned after a week at hotel Mediteran It was a bright, airy and very clean hotel. Staff and waiters were friendly and professional. Our room was a little small but having said that met our needs. We had a room on the top floor overlooking the pool, garden and in the distance the sea. It was very clean and cool with air con. The food was good and the drinks with dinner were included, they were also good, not the best wine but not the worst. The only downside was that at times the restaurant was very busy, try to avoid going to dinner at 6.30 if you didn't want to queue.
There was very little on offer at lunch times in the bar - toasted sandwich or ham salad roll. Cakes and ice cream were available.
Coffee was really good and very good value - £1.40 ish.
The evening entertainment wasn't very good, not our cup of tea.
The location was the best we have been to in a while. It was stunning, a gentle stroll into Porec (pronounced porridge), thru the shaded wood took about 20 mins, and about 25-30 mins along the coast. The little noddy train was avail every 30 mins and cost 20 kuna. We also took the cycle taxi once, which was great fun and cost 50 kuna.
It was a fab holiday in a stunning location, we will definitely return and would stay at this hotel again.

We have just returned from a week's stay at this hotel. When we arrived we discovered that it was a 3*hotel ( we mistakenly thought it was a 4*) and were a bit concerned. We need not have been - it was first rate!
Although we had a room with no balcony it was not a problem as we were in the room so rarely.it was very clean as was the whole hotel.
The food was as good as many 4* hotels we have stayed in and the bonus of having 'free' drinks with our evening meal was great.There was a great deal of choice both at breakfast and at dinner for food and drink.
Points to note - the photos on the website give the impression that grassed area is part of the hotel grounds but it isn't and the pool area is quite 'tight'. Also, the hotel does not provide pool towels- we bought 'mattresses' from the hotel shop at a very reasonable price and left them for other guests when we left.
We did the trip to Venice via the Rep. and even though it was a whistle stop tour , we enjoyed it. we went with Venezia Line Catamaran and bought the shuttle trips and the gondola ride on the catamaran. They were both very good and well organised. We were advised that the prices in St Mark's Square were ridiculously expensive , which they were, so we bought the 'lunch trip' from the Catamaran Company - we wished we hadn't because as soon as you left the square prices were reasonable and we paid 20 euros each for a pizza and a small piece of tiramisu and about 2 glasses of water ( it was too hot to drink the wine so most people left it on the tables untouched)
We would definitely return to Porec and would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 2nd floor at the front of the hotel. it didn't have a balcony but we knew...
