The hotel is a peaceful base that’s close to the beach and not far from the town centre.
This place is really well located. For starters, it’s got a public, pebble beach on its doorstep, topped with bathing platforms. It’s also less than 15 minutes’ walk to the town centre.
The hotel has been recently refurbished and you can expect a peaceful, adults-only environment with contemporary surroundings. From May 2016, this hotel will become part of the Thomson Sensimar collection.

First time visitors to Croatia - Fab Adults Only Hotel
First time visitors to Croatia. Fab service starting from arrival at Pula airport. We were met by the Thomson rep who directed us to the waiting coach and 50 minutes later we were sat by the pool!! Checking in was handled in a very professional and welcoming manner, starting with drinks and fresh fruit on arrival. Hotel is kept to a very high standard of cleanliness throughout. Rooms are very clean and functional and are serviced every day. Food and drink service throughout our 2 wk stay was of a very high & consistent standard for this style of all inclusive. No complaints from our party of 8 at all. No mean feat!! Though low key the entertainment provided was good fun and added to our holiday. Yes as per other reviews the pool is not heated, but it is great for cooling of. The biggest plus point though are the staff. They are extremely well organised and work very hard to help you to enjoy your holiday. Nothing was to much trouble for them. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Park Plaza and the Istria area for a holiday. We will return to Croatia in the future.More

What a fab hol!!
Wow what a fantastic holiday we had here in Croatia. Plane Journey took only 1hr 55 mins coming & we had a quick 20 minute transfer to the hotel. On arrival, the hotel staff were very welcoming, we were greeted with a drink & a fruit stick & check in was very quick & easy. Room: We were on the top floor in room 410. The view was absolutely stunning & the balcony was of a good size too. The room was an adequate size for us to do what we wanted to do in it. Come on; you're on holiday. How much time do you actually spend In your room anyway?! Food: Food was of a buffet style. There was always plenty of choice & variety & something different to have every day. The food was really flavoursome & of a good quality. If your a fussy eater there was always something to have, if your not a fussy eater they had something different for you to try such as shark meat. Everyday they had a fresh salad bar, fruit bar, soup & pizza. If you are going on a trip ask reception the day before & they will give you a packed breakfast & lunch & a cold plate on your return. If you get bored there are some restaurants you can visit to mix things up a bit. Also you can visit the Al a carte in the hotel once in your visit!! Sanja who served us in the restaurant always had a smile on her face, friendly & always remembered what we liked to drink. Pool: Saltwater pool was lovely & cool in the high temperatures we had during our visit. There were often quite a lot of people in there cooling off. Pool is big & people were often doing lengths. There were plenty of sun beds by the pool & beds in the garden. If you attend the welcome meeting they tell you that if you struggle to find a sun bed, ask the pool attendant & he will go and get you one. I never saw anyone struggle to get a sun bed in my two week visit during mid July and we didn't get down to the pool most days until 8:30. It's very relaxing by the pool & there was no music which I like because you can just relax. If I did want to listen to music i could listen to it on my own personal device. Location/Trips: Small walk into the town where there is a fair & quite a few souvenir shops. We visited Pula which is 20 mins away by taxi a couple of times where they had nice restaurants, shops & a colosseum. There are plenty of trips to do. During our visit we went on the wine tasting afternoon which is a must. We visited some beautiful places & we learnt a lot from our guide Elvis who is a great laugh & is very knowledgeable. We also did Plitvice lakes (4hr journey there & back). The lakes & waterfalls are beautiful but there is quite a bit of a walk which was fine if we could keep up with our guide. We completely lost her on first half of trip & we were unsure on which direction to go in. Rovinj by night is also a must, It's such a beautiful place. We also did Venice. Trip is 3hrs by boat & you have 5hrs free time to explore which was enough for us!! The Thomson rep in the hotel, called John Carlo, was really nice and helpful, and gave us lots of tips on where to visit Staff: Staff at this hotel are fantastic. They are friendly & very helpful. They were always saying hi & asking about our day. You cannot fault them. Whilst in Venice my boyfriend proposed to me & when we got back to the hotel they had timed our trip right so there was champagne on ice in the room, heart shaped cake, big bunch of roses & a towel arrangement on the bed. We couldn't fault anyone! We would like to thanks everyone on reception (too many names to write down here). Everyone of them made us feel welcome every day and they gave us the best engagement day. They did a fab job at keeping the engagement a secret from me for a whole week. Tanja and Marko at the bar are great too. Guests: 95% British & a good mix of young, middle aged & the older. Everyone was friendly & we met some lovely people during our stay. Entertainment: Day time activities by pool were at 2:00 which was usually a game & at 4:00 there was usually another activity such as pasta or cocktail making. The two girls who ran these activities were very friendly & did a good job. They didn't pester you either. At night there were usually singers on until about 10ish. If I could suggest anything then it would be to have more chairs & tables for entertainment as we struggled to find anywhere to sit on some evenings. Other: At the hotel the WiFi was free & quite good & worked well in our room & by the pool. Hotel has a beauty & massage with a happy hour on relaxation massages between 1-4 which worked a treat. Yes there is a gym which looked like it had some pretty high tech machines in there but what do I know? I don't do gyms on holiday! Tips: Take extra clothes hangers, plenty of mosquito repellent, do some trips to explore Croatia & just enjoy yourself!!!!More

I'm going to repeat a lot of other reviews by saying how clean the hotel is how friendly and helpful the staff are it's not a fake friendliness, have to mention Syjetlana (hopefully not spelt it too wrong) she is such a lovely genuine friendly person and the dinner hall was not the same when she was day off, The food was lovely always a really big choice and we never had any issues with it been cold ! It was probably one of the best all inc we have tried all the drinks were good as well, The rooms are an adequate size as we only sleep,wash and change in them ,lovely comfy bed. The only issue is the sun bed saga that you end up getting dragged into or you cannot get one for all the idiots that have to have the same beds everyday by getting up around 6.30 then going back to bed ,the staff are not really able to do anything about this .when we were there the pool was a perfect temp and was lovely to swim in. The hotel is in a lovely place 5 mins walk from the harbour and some lively bars or you can walk abit further for quieter bars. The best of istria trip is really worth doing our guide Tin was really friendly and had loads of knowledge ,Pula is worth seeing we took the bus which some might not like as you are squashed on but it was only around Â£14 for a taxi back. The evening entertainment wasn't the best,apart from once where they had two guys in doing fire juggling etc the were actually funny and entertaining , but the entertainment isn't an issue for us. Croatia is a beautiful country, the people we met were lovely , We love going on holiday and are the sort that don't go to the same place twice but we would return back here tomorrow , I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone I actually cannot understand anyone finding fault with this hotel and I'd like to say thank you again for a fantastic holiday .More
