Immersed in a wooded peninsula a few km south of Pula town. Room overlooks Pool then through the trees to a cove beach on the Adriatic. Modernish style with mustard, olive green, grey decor and furnishings. Exemplary service, especially at reception. Cuisine is standard hotel at both breakfast and dinner- buffet style. A la carte available but didn't try it....

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 22 August 2016 via mobile

This hotel is a fantastic find. We booked through Thomson after looking at the nearby Verudela apartments however we realised that the hotels half board wasn't much more at all so went for that option instead and we were so pleased we did. The room had a brilliant view of the sea and pool - I would pay extra for...

Sadly, this was the last stop on our tour of Istria, but the hotel gave us an excellent and friendly send off. It may be part of a major company, but it went a long way to ensure that we got a personalised and friendly service. From what I can gather, it's recently taken on new staff, and their enthusiasm...

We just stayed in this hotel for 4 days. Looking back at the pictures here (both from management as from guests), this is exactly how the hotel looks. During our stay we noticed daily cleaning of not only the pool area, which was returned to a perfect look every evening, but also the elevators etc. We also spotted a handyman...

We are just back from park plaza arena having stayed half board for one week. The food was excellent, the staff were polite, helpful and extremely welcoming. They are incredible! The immediate surrounding area has beautiful scenery but very quiet. However for 4 girls in our 20's we felt completely safe and had no worries about walking around at night....

A wonderful place to stay for good service, friendly caring staff, and a spotlessly clean hotel. 10 minutes from pula centre on the local bus costing £1.25, which runs every 20 mins during the day and evenings.
