"Excellent for a short break"
Hotel Salinera is an excellent place for a (romantic) break in quiet and green surroundings... the right place for recharging and relaxing. It has nice and modern rooms (hotel was opened in 2006), good swimming pool and very good sauna park. You can relax in the hotel grounds with a lots of greenery, walk in the Strunjan landscape park or take a bicycle ride to nearby Izola, Piran or Portorož. Hotel restaurant offers a good choice of food. In hotel wellness you can choose therapeutic or relaxation massage program. It's a perfect getaway place for a short (or long) break - especially in spring or autumn.
"Great setting, underwhelming apartments"
09/25/13 Elaine C Dunedin, New Zealand
I have mixed feelings about this place - the apartment prices are affordable but the accommodation standard was not very pleasing. The apartments have a worn look and feel. The bed was comfortable albeit squeaky and the wardrobes were new. The bathroom needs renovating, there was no A/C in the apartment (apparently some have it and some don't so make sure you request the one that has it if staying in July/August), the TV was old and unwatchable. The buffet breakfast was excellent, plenty to choose from (although it was disappointing the puddings were some cheap German brand instead of Vindija...). The buffet dinner was alright, it would have been nice to have a seafood dish also (fried hake is just wrong). The restaurant staff was 'interesting' to put it nicely. Some of them were not very skilled or didn't seem to care much. On the first evening, the majority guests thus looked unsatisfied. I was appaled that they'd actually employ people without foreign language skills. It was ridiculous to see they had to go and fetch someone else for a German speaking customer (I wonder how they handled the group of German pensioners that came the next evening). Not sure how their English skills are, let's just say I was happy I'm a native Slovenian speaker. :) The indoor swimming pool was nice, had a pleasant swim each morning before breakfast. However, there is no shower gel provided so bring your own. I also really missed a gym. The location of the hotel is great for a walk in Strunjan and it's a short drive to anywhere along the Slovenian coast really. The secluded setting is brilliant, the swimming stretch of the hotel 'beach' is quite clean, the 12 energy points park is a great idea (provided one knows what to do with it) and the outdoor swimming pool looked pleasant (it's closed from mid-September on). Overall, a great setting and affordable - but could use renovations and restaurant staff training.
"Good for the money"
09/11/13 Tjasa644302 Rogaska Slatina, Slovenia
Me and my husband stayed for two nights in the bungalow Nr. 719, payed 160 EUR for a halfboard. We made the reservation through Booking.com and it was a two star bungalow. It wasn't as basic as we expected, it had TV, air condition, was spacious and clean. The bathroom was big enough, but needed to be renovated, so was the front door and the door to the balcony. The kitchen was big enough, well equipped. It would be nice to have something to dry the wet swimwear and towels on, other bungalows had it. We had breakfast and dinner in the hotel, which has 4 stars, but the food wasn't 4 star, it was 3. Plenty to choose, but not fresh enough. It was nice to have free drinks. The sea is a five minutes walk and there is also a swimming pool near the beach and it was very clean. If you want to have a nice, quiet, peaceful and not expensive vacation, it is the right place! If you don't have a car, you can rent a bike in the hotel and there are some very nice towns to visit, like Portorož, Piran, Fiesa.
"Great wellness experience"
07/19/13 Popotnica_13 Ghent, Belgium
I only visited the wellness part of the hotel, but I was really pleasantly surprised. Nice, clean, no annoying muzak in the massage room, and the massage was a bliss!!! I can only recommend tui-na, maybe it won't suit everyone as it's a very strong massage, but I loved it. Extremely relaxing! And the best part is that you can relax on a beach afterwards! The only minus point was that the shower didn't have a shower gel in it, but I just used the handwash then. Friendly people, too. I had booked my massage through the general call centre of the whole Bernardin Group and they were super friendly. Because the wellness centre wasn't open yet, they did the booking for me and then sent me the confirmation by e-mail. Wow! I live in Belgium, so I'm super pleased when I find service-minded tourism professionals! I'll be coming back!
"Great vacation in Slovenia"
10/30/11 Petra K Prague, Czech Republic
We spent here a pleasant week of our cyckling vacation. The whole coast offers you many choices for bike riding. We didn´t stay in the main hotel building but in appartment villa MAIA, which is part of the hotel complex and is situated in the hotel garden next to the outdoor pool. We had an 6 persons appartment. It was very spacisous with nice balcony with view to outdoor pool and hotel garden. The appartment was clean and equipped with modern and elegant furniture. It consists of large living room with folding sofa combined with kitchen and dinning area. The bedroom a bit smaller but still large. The kitchen was equipped with all modern appliances- dishwasher, induction cooker etc. The appartment was fully airconditioned. The hotel garden is beatiful with some history and calls you for relaxing. The outdoor pool is close to sea, it is quite large and clean. It was already open in the first week of June. The sea was a bit colder but still nice for swimming. The sea access is from the small mole or there is very small pebble beach. The nature around is beautiful. They work on renew of Strunjan Saline park close to the Hotel Salinera. There is a great walk to the Strunjan cross and Strunjan cliffs, where you can go down from cliffs to sea. Many other trips choices are waiting for you, like old towns Piran, Isola, Portoroz or trips to inland wineyards, Secovlje Salinera Nature park etc. Trips around require to have own car, bike is better. We truly recommend this hotel.

Location is great for all that like long walks and sea side biking tours. Food is an average all though I was surprized by the breakfast corner for athletes. Staff hospitality was on top.
"Very good, highly recommended"
06/14/11 yogini69 Prague
A pleasant, 3 star hotel with an indoor sea water swimming pool, friendly and efficient service, set in the beautiful surroundings of Strunjan Nature Park. The restaurant serves meals in a buffet style and that was the only setback, since I had only a soup for a lunch and had to pay full 14 Euros. Otherwise, complimenti ...
"Disgusting food quality poor service, resturant like a works canteen"
10/11/07 GRFBAF SCOTLAND
This hotel is only one year old and supposed to be 4 star.It looks and feels like a motorway lodge. The buffet meals are very poor quality dinners with hamburgers sausages and warm meats in congealed gravy. Tables set for dinner with one knife and fork and paper napkins. Food cleared from tables onto trolleys with slop bin on top. We should have stayed a week here but lasted 3 days. the finale was no milk for breakfast that is none for cereals or tea . The staff were like the old style east no smiles or chat. This hotel rates a poor 2 star.

Wir waren als Familie im Hochsommer im Bioenergy Resort in Strunjan. Die gesamte Hotelanlage war in einem einwandfreien, sehr gepflegten Zustand. Gebucht hatten wir ein Haus, welches ca . 150 Meter vom Hotel entfernt lag. Preis-Leistung spricht in dieser Anlage für sich. Umliegende Sehenswürdigkeiten sind aufgrund der guten Lage der Hotelanlage gut erreichbar. Das Personal war zuvorkommend, freundlich. Kein Wunsch blieb überfüllt. Halbpension war vollkomend ausreichend, in der Mittagssonne einfach zu heiss zum Essen, Getränkepreise sehr moderat . Mehrsprachiges Personal, Deutsch, Englisch, Russisch kein Problem.....
