We have just returned home this weekend after spending a week at The Laguna Gran Vista. This has got to be the best holiday we have taken, ok so there are mountains of steps to climb and the place isnt overly wheelchair/pushchair friendly, however the hotel itself is clean comftable and offers excelent value for money. We hope to visit again soon!

Very clean, comfortable hotel with friendly restaurant and bar staff. Wide range of good quality food, fish, meat, vegetables and deserts - plenty of fresh fruit.
The Croatian people made us feel welcome wherever we went.
For a special meal try Cardo fish restaurant in the lovely old town of Porec, excellent food, service and local wines.Explore the tiny alleys for restaurant/bars like Ante.
Lots of stairs up to and in the hotel but they're good for burning off the calories!

Arrived at hotel with thermometer showing 35C at 6pm to be confronted with lots of steps and a 150yard uphill slope to the hotel entrance. Electric doors open just as you are right on top of them and think they are broken. Reception is impressive lots of new leather setees and seats and Air Conditioning. More steps to get to rooms, making this hotel very unfriendly to disabled, elderly etc. Rooms to the back of the hotel look onto a steep grass bank and a quirky glass church which the seagulls use for target practise day and night. Rooms to the front have a balcony and impressive seaview looking West to watch spectacular sunsets.
Beds , seats wardrobes etc are fine with plenty of mirrors to create an impression of a larger room. Air Con unit is not powerful and we left it on constantly on full blast to get any relief.
Ensuite is probably worst layout I have come accross- Shower is nigh on impossible to get in without brushing against toilet, try getting out with wet feet and it is very dangerous with no grab handles to aid stability. Hair dryer in bathroonm is poor- take your own.
Rooms are cleaned every day and towels changed too- usual rough texture to take your newly burnt skin off!!
Dining area is excellent with no dress code at night suprisingly. Breakfasts from 07.00 to 10.00 with buffet service and a huge range on offer-if you cannot get something to fill you up then you must be a very very picky eater.
Cakes, sandwiches and soft drinks are a free lunch time offer.
Evening meals are again excellent with a huge choice for all tastes. Complimentary drinks are on offer with free wine, beer , soft drinks and water all available- self service.
Pool is a bit small but deep enough. Several signs saying no reservation of sunbeds, no diving, no ball games, no glasses etc all totally ignored with no hotel supervision. Space is limited so get there just before 9.00am or sun beds will be all taken.
Several bars and market stalls nearby but not cheap and selling usual tat- nothing seems to have price stickers on and we strongly suspected dual pricing for richer nations i.e UK, D, I and NL with lesser prices for East Europeans and Russians who seem to be everywhere.
Near by "beach" is concrete with a covering of sand but many coves and sheltered rocky beaches to enjoy with a clear warm sea too.
Porec is 3 miles away and can be reached by "Noddy train " or local bus - 15Kn one way. Noddy train is a jostle to get on , queing unheard of and service is lax. If bad weather i.e heavy rain or thunder, service does not run and taxis are scarce- not a bad walk at midnight in the pouring rain though as we had first hand experiance!
All in all hotel is good location but could be easily improved 3 star banding is about right.

This hotel had it's good points and bad ones. We arrived at 6pm and after sitting on a coach for 1 hour and 45 minutes in very hot temperatures had to drag our luggage up stairs and along a very long steep path. Once in the hotel again we had to carry our luggage up stairs. The air conditioning was not very good and we found it very hard to sleep at night. The showers are very
dangerous because you have to literally climb over the toilet to get into it. There is a pool which has signs at the side of it stating that no diving, playing with balls or taking glasses to the pool are allowed but no one stuck to these rules and the staff did not seem to care. It's not a place for anyone in a wheelchair because you cannot get to the hotel without having to climb stairs.
Now the good points. The food was very good we were half board, there was a great choice of breakfasts and the food was very well prepared. The evening meal was very good there was a fantastic choice of meals, no one rushed you to finish and the staff were very friendly. The hotel was very clean. There were trains that took you to Porec, which is about 3 miles from the hotel but people there dont believe in waiting in line they just push there way to the front of the queue. Some people from other countries were very rude especialy the Germans and Italians they seemed to think that they were the only ones that mattered. Our trip back to England from the airport was a nightmare. No air conditioning in the airport, the flight was 7 hours late and I spent 3 and a half hours with the doctor because I was taken ill whilst wating for the plane. No one kept us informed as to what was happening and the staff were very rude. Would we travel to Croatia again - yes - but not to that area and not that airport. This was out third holiday to this country we had no complaints regarding the other ones.
Great experience

Great! We relaxed totally from the moment we arrived to the moment we left and the hotel was a great place to be based. The hotel is part of a purpose built holiday village accomodating everything from people camping to those wanting a hotel. There are a number of hotels and and a few bars all within a couple of minutes walk. It's very pictueresque throughout the site and nicely spread out. We thought the food was great. I usually don't like eating at the hotel, but as it was overlooking the beautiful 'lagoon' in a bay it was amazing to watch the sun setting (awesome) whilst eating a wide variety of food. There was choice for meat eaters, fish lovers and vegetatians alike. Moving on, there are lots of steps, however once at the top the view is wonderful. Also, there is a porter that can carry your bags for you if you like. A room with a sea view and balcony is recommended as with any holiday. There are loads of watersports within ten minutes walk (near hotel Delfin) and to get to them you walk along the sea through a really nice wooded area. What is really important to stress is that the people very much want the English to visit. Although not apparent where we stayed, whilst on a long journey to Plitvice Lakes (UNESCO site - breathtaking) we travelled across a lot of Croatia and you took on board to some degree the impact of the war, which has now been over for ten years. Despite what these lovely people have been through, they seem geniunely caring and naturally friendly. Of course they want to get tourism back on track but I never felt it was a case of taking the money and running, in fact the opposite. We definitely want to return and would happily go back to this hotel. The whole holiday was a great experience!

Looks impressive. Not all rooms have balconies which are main part our holiday, if u manage to be lucky its a fab view. 157 steps from our room 2 sea. No lifts. Food salty and no taste. Meals between 7-9pm. Get there early (only once we did)if u go after 8 you feel in the way and just leftovers. If u miss breakfast u have no chance of buying it in one of the 5ish cafes in this part of Porec. The supermarket very expensive, one on campsite cheaper we were told. No english ciggies or tobacco (really cheap in airport. Vodka etc £3.50 1ltr.£6.00 200 lambert.take a big bag). Well worth the boat trip £14.00 each inc sml lunch. Gorgeous country but not trying to entice British back. Unless you nip to Porec of an evening can be quite boring. Noddy train, boat and bus cheap £1.50 single. Taxi about £6.00.fab walks to other peninsulas, but not much there. rovinj and fjiords a must,and that boat trip does it all. A spotless place, no cats flies or mozzies. We would go back, but to rovinj.

Top Local Tips for Porec

Venetian delight Enjoy the fantastic marina and views across to Fortuna Island before moving out of the beating sun and finding the smooth stoned alleyways which lead round Euphrasius church passing lots of little galleries and shops to enjoy a superb Ice cream in the shade
