We had a nice stay
I was here a few years ago with my family, we were not there during the season so there was not many people, but we had a nice stay, the rooms are pretty and clean. The pool and pool area are very nice aswell. One time we've got stuck in the hotel elevator with my sister but they came to help us immediately... fun moments to remember :) Would recommend it to my friends.More
Must be fun during summer
We had a conference with my wife and stayed in this hotel. All the hardware, like room, pool area, restaurant, bar, etc is good. The sea is very close and you can find restaurants, bike and car rentals just next door. My only concern is the cleaning lady who starts to rumble down the hallway early. And attempt to come into you room in spite of "Don't Disturb" mark. This place/area must be great fun during summer. More
Better than expected from reviews
Went here feeling a bit wary due to negative comments, but was pleasantly surprised. There are afew negatives. First one is lack of sun beds for all guests. There's just not enough to accommodate everyone and you do have to get up very early to reserve them unfortunately. Didn't like the fact that they serve drinks in the pool bar in actual glasses... Not very safe, many were broken every day and one of the children in our group cut their foot. They are quite flimsy glasses also and easily break. The umbrellas around the pool have a tendency to blow away frequently when there is a slight breeze. They need to be more sturdy. The food is not brilliant compared to other all inclusive places but there is always something to suit and you will never go hungry. The children liked the snack bar which served pizza, chips, chicken, salad, ice creams etc from 11 till 11 at night. The breakfast isn't as bad as made out on here. Always fresh eggs, boiled, scrambled and fried. Bacon and sausage. Cereal, fruit, yoghurt. Istrian night is very popular once a week in restaurant and gets very busy. Drinks are ok. Only a limited choice of cocktails and very sugary mixers but we went to supermarket across the road for different choices. You can pay extra in bar for named brands as they only serve local brands. Rooms are good, excellent air con, always clean. Good sea view. Not as noisy as some are saying. You can hear music from entertainment but generally finishes before midnight. Staff are lovely and welcoming, apart from the guy at pool who gives out towels. He is so miserable when you actually find him. Kids entertainment ok.. All staff speak English. Adult entertainment is a bit bizarre.. Like being in a time warp.. Dated and strange. Pools are very cold. Surrounding area is lovely.. Lots of walks in the woods surrounded by pine trees. And very clean. Boat, little train or bus into porec... 20 min journey. Porec lovely place, lots to do. Lots of boat trips on offer. The hotel has a boat stop. The hotel also gives clients free sports and pedal boat hire, which is great. Free use of gym also and few hours free bike hire. I agree that there are not many English in this hotel but it is not an issue. We loved the hotel and maybe it needs to be promoted more to the English. Thomson rep katerina was nice and informative, and was Croatian. She gave us some good advice. Check in at hotel and transfer was fine. Croatia is the most fantastic country and a real place of beauty. I would recommend this hotel if you want a reasonable priced, easy to get to place with guaranteed sun and a good time. Lots of entertainment on beach also and fireworks at night. Amazing sunsets. Can't go wrong!More
Many great aspects but much to improve
Hotel Laguna albatross The hotel is modern and well appointed. The rooms are not the biggest we have experienced but are comfortable and new. It is nice to have five electric points for all your gadgets. The beds are made up and the rooms are cleaned every day. There are no tea making facilities. There are a lot of stairs around the complex but also many lifts. Including the toilets, the whole place is kept clean and there is no litter. Transfer time from the airport is about an hour and both pick-up and checking in were quick and well managed. My 18 year old grandson was sick in his bathroom at 12.30 one night. His Mum had great difficulty in getting any help until a security guard brought them a couple of towels.These became badly soiled and remained there until the room was cleaned up next afternoon! This is a very beautiful coastline with many pretty wooded inlets. All seem to be occupied by many people bathing and picnicking amongst the Pine trees. Great cycling opportunities. Clearly a popular destination for people close to the Adriatic. We would come back to this area. There were few people here from the UK but staff spoke good English as did lots of the local shops and restaurants. Almost all of the songs and music played were in English as are all the signs. We did have small biting flies inside and outside at night. There was a good size TV and we were able to get both Sky News and BBC World Service. Wi-fi is accessible not only at the hotel but down to the beach too. The speed was about 0.8Mbps which was OK. My daily newspaper downloaded in a reasonable time although the news was just as depressing. We got a better rate of exchange before leaving home and this amounted to about Â£2 on Â£100. Local rates were not as favourable. Very few places take credit cards but there are numerous ATMs and places to change money. Everything is cheaper than in the UK. Croatians do not seem to recognise the dangers of smoking and it is widespread. The enjoyment of non-smokers comes second place to those who smoke. It would be a considerable advance if hotels recognised this and had clearly marked non-smoking areas. It was pleasant to swim in pools that were at a refreshing temperature. Often we have found that the water in Mediterranean pools in summer are like being in a warm bath. A great feature is the hand-rail and steps in both of the pools that makes them more accessible. None of the pools are large and they get crowded. The maximum depth of 1.6 metres provides good swimming opportunities while remaining safe. There are no life guards around these very busy pools. My wife was only able to find two unreserved beds near the pool at 6.15 one morning. Other reviewers have commented on the stress resulting from this problem. If you want sunbeds near the pool, but are not prepared to get up before 6am then this is not the place for you. One morning we encountered a guest who had taken two umbrellas to his room overnight. Lots of beds remained unused throughout the day and on one occasion we saw five towels out on beds at 11pm at night. There is a non-stop supply of food and drink. The bar staff are courteous and work hard. We were troubled though by glasses and bottles in the pool area. This is a major hazard. Almost everyday we saw broken glass being cleared up and on one occasion, my wife had several small pieces of glass in her foot. We filled out a report on this. There is lots to do nearby. Five minutes down from the hotel are a range of shops, restaurants, a market and the sea. My grandchildren had fun using a pedalo in the bay and there are also large inflatables moored at various points. Around the headland to the right is a nice marina where you can get a coffee or a meal. Just outside the hotel are, tennis courts, six table tennis tables and crazy golf. Including bike hire and pedalos, these are free. From the hotel there is easy access to the interesting old town of Porec. This is about 25 minutes by boat or land train at 20 Kuna each way or 15 Kuna on the bus. We went on the boat and train and really enjoyed the trip. The cost of a meal in the restaurants in Porec are much less than what we expect to pay back home but you have to pay cash. The restaurant is air conditioned and has plenty of tables and there are few queues at the buffets. The salads, bread and desserts are very good and there is a plentiful supply or wine, beer, tea, water and cold drinks. Breakfast is probably the meal that best met our needs as you don't expect a lot of variation. Men do not have to wear long trousers for dinner. Hooray! A victory for equal opps and common sense.More
All Inclusive never been so true.
Beautiful hotel with great see view and large pool area. We had side sea view room which was definitely worth paying the extra for as other rooms looked onto bin room or only had small window. All Inclusive as per usual- Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and drinks however the food is the same every day and often not hot. However never known a hotel to include use of local sports facilities including bike hire, mini golf, pedlo and tennis etc all bookable a day before. Very much cattered for Germans (food and vocab) as English get ignored and be prepared to be up early if you want a space around the pool. Animation and Entertainment - no activities from animation team in day. As for entertainment it's great if you like the same band singing the same German songs. Although also a live band the near by 'pub scapio' is much better with an atmosphere and the girl has a great voice. More
