    A week, but we could easily have stood it for two...
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • Comfort Twin Room
    • Stayed 6 nights

    Our room sadly didn't have a balcony nor a bathroom window and although the bathroom was fitted with eight hooks, that isn't much to dry your swimming gear and towels on once the bath robes and laundry bag are in. The stuff doesn't quickly dry either. The use of bathrobes comes at 6 euro per person for the duration of the stay. Towels in the bathroom are inspected daily but replaced when the maid sees fit. We were a bit surprised at the charge of 14 euro a day for two seats and an umbrella at the hotel beach and by the 4 euro per not-exchangeable bath towel at the entrance of the swimming pools. In this hotel too nearly all guests prefer to go in dry, even hesitantly. The staff probably have given up encouraging the use of the excellent showers before joining the company.

    The overall look of the hotel is a bit older but fresh and altogether spacious, comfortable and well kept. The spacious wardrobe with a dozen hangers for dresses and six for shirts etc is nice. We slept well. The meals are varied with plenty of veg and tasty choices. There seems to be more routine in the dessert buffet but looking closely, what more could one want? The staff is plurilingual and professional. The swimming pools are spacious, heated, the sea water means no chlorine smell, but the adjacent terrace on the outside fills up quickly as there is less noise. Well, just cross the street and you are on the beach at the laguna, with a good cafeteria. We asked for a non-smoking, no animals, and no natural duvet room at the backside, away from the street, on the 2nd or 3rd floor. We got all that!

    The AC in the room is very noisy, the restaurant is very expensive and the waiter is very unhappy id you don't order anything to drink for 5 EUR per bottle. The plates were sticky. Nobody cared our comments. The parking is 5 EUR per day and your car can stay under the sun for a whole week...lovely. Price and value is not equal.

    The hotel is very close to the beach, the pool is awesome and the area is lovely.

    Reserved two rooms, preferably located close to one another, but we got rooms at different wings of the building, without being notified by the staff at the reception desk. Family room was incredibly small, we could not open the balcony door because the opened sofa blocked it. Room condition was OK, but outworn.

    Nice see view from the family room. Staff - in general - kind and helpful. Half board in the hotel restaurant is excellent quality for price.

    paid 200 eur / night for twin-bed room. I expect a lot more for that money. that is ridiculous for this out-dated hotel. the bed was soft and old. the floor in the room looked like 40years without refurbishing. for that money we even got room on the first floor with view exactly on the old-roof above the front entrance. bad experience. 70eur/night would be maximum for this kind of hotel.

    Why is wine/ beer/ water so expensive at dinner time, and why is tap water not available, especially when it's 35 degrees outside? Really cross about this. Parking doesn't seem to be easy- we arrived early so were lucky to get a space, but I don't know what we'd have done otherwise. Our balcony light didn't work (but was fixed the next day when we asked). The window didn't seem to close properly, and the bathroom fan switch was falling off - maybe a little TLC needed in our room? (Public spaces were well kept). Bit confused about what was included- pool? fitness centre? entertainment? Still not sure...

    The breakfast was wonderful- everything we could possibly want. Dinner was good too, with enough of a selection even for the vegetarian in our party. Comfortable beds, good shower, nice pool, very convenient for beach (if you're into ugly, crowded, concrete, overpriced beaches)- much better to get the bus to Piran though. Sea view from balcony which was a nice surprise.

    Breakfast: no salmon and fresh orange juice, not so much type of bread and cake, the cleaning women woke me up at 8.30a.m. all morning, the room is bright in the morning because of the not dark drapery.

    The situation of the hotel is perfect. It takes only some minutes to reach the Terme and Wellness Spa in a bathrobe. But the own wellness of the Riviera is also good. What about the breakfast you can eat fresh pancake! The beach...restaurants...sports facilities...shopping...Cacao patisserie...Just So! So during 4 years it was the sixth occasion to be in Portoroz. :-)
