The Hotel Park Plaza Medulin is a peaceful base that’s close to the beach and not far from the town centre.
The Hotel Park Plaza Medulin is really well located. For starters, it’s got a pebbly 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 is now part of the Thomson Couples collection, so expect a peaceful, adults-only environment and contemporary surroundings.

My partner and I have just returned from a 10 day stay at this hotel having had a fantastic time. It is a short 2 hour flight to Croatia rom Gatwick with a 20 minute transfer to the hotel which was convenient, when we arrived we were greeted by the resident entertainers Matt and Sarah and drinks from the waiters which was a nice touch. I thought Matt and Sarah were really good throughout our whole stay, some people on here have been very critical of the singing but I thought both were very talented and very nice people, they always did a mixture of old and new songs which we really enjoyed. The rooms are quite small but very clean and modern with a huge TV and really comfortable beds. There was a complimentary robe and slippers in the room and lovely smelling washes and creams and a really good hairdryer which is a bonus for me. We had a sea view room on the 4th floor and the views were amazing, we didnât find it noisy at all like some of the previous reviewers. However, if you are on the 4th floor be prepared for bats as there seemed to be a nest on the roof and we couldnât really sit out there of an evening because of this which was a shame. The pool was a good size however we did struggle some days to find a sun lounger by the pool as people would reserve beds very early in the morning, however there were always beds in the gardens so it wasnât a problem. The pebbly beach is also only a 5 min walk from the hotel if you preferred this. The food was really nice and there was plenty of choice, at dinner there was always a huge roast with accompanying veg and pasta and fish dishes which we really enjoyed. The alcohol was fine but not amazing, the white wine a little strong (needed soda) and the sparkling a bit iffy but my partner said the beer was nice. We went to Venice one of the days on the Thomson excursion but I would not recommend this. We were picked up at 6:20am, taken to Pula which is a 20 minute drive away, we then had to wait for passport control to get our boarding passes which was about an hour, but the worst part was the journey on the boat. 3 hours and 15 mins on a catamaran on choppy seas was dreadful! There were people being ill at the back and it was not an enjoyable experience. We didnât get to St Marks Square until 12pm and then had until 4pm to look around but it just wasnât enough time to see everything and all the queue for the museums were huge by this time, we then had the same journey backâ¦ I was so glad when we got back to the hotel that night! The staff were amazing, so friendly and helpful nothing was too much trouble. Shirley our Thomson rep in particular was so helpful and always had a smile on her face and time to have a chat with you, she is extremely knowledgeable about the area and was always about if you needed her which was very reassuring. Natasha was also really great and in charge of most of the activities, my favourite was the aromatherapy class where she taught us about the essential oils and you also got a free 5 min massage which was lovely. She also took us on a Roman Ruins tour which was in a park about 20 mins from the hotel and such a lovely location. I had a massage in the beauty salon which was really relaxing and great value for money at about Â£24 for an hour, I felt great afterwards. I canât really find fault with the hotel, there was a good mixture of ages and something for everyone. The only thing which was not to our liking was 2 of the kitchen staff were rude to my partner at times which I didnât like. He went up to get an ice-cream at lunch one day and asked what one of the flavours were to which the boy replied âcan you not read the sign?â, well no we couldnât because we donât speak Croatian! This really annoyed me as there was no need to be so rude. There was also a problem when my partner asked for 2 fried eggs one morning and again another member of staff was quite sarcastic which we didnât appreciate. This was a real let down and made us feel quite awkward for the rest of our stay. I wouldnât recommend the a la carte either, it is pretty much the same food as in the buffet restaurant, the only difference is you have to wait about Â½ an hour in between courses!More

We were welcomed at the hotel with drinks and fruit. The hotel was very clean and modern. Food excellent, very well presented. Quiet in the evening but this is what we wanted. The Hotel Staff work really hard and yes a special mention should go to Annabella. I could not fault this hotel. Thank you!More

Relaxing all inclusive holiday
Relaxing, peaceful stay at the Park Plaza Medulin. Lovely walks in the area - recommend that you go on the orientation walks organised by the reps as a starter. Pula is an attractive town with an impressive amphitheatre. The hotel is meticulously clean with excellent service in the bar and restaurant areas. Annabella, the restaurant waitress deserves a mention. She was very pleasant and helpful. There was a good range of salads, soups, meat and fish for lunch and dinner. Good choice for breakfast. The sparkling wine was refreshing and to be recommended. Very much enjoyed the beef fillet and dessert on the a la carte menu - one meal included during the stay as part of the package.More
Just returned from a 2 week stay for our honeymoon. The hotel was amazing, it has been refurbished to a very high standard. All areas are clean, modern and well maintained. The staff are fantastic, they really make this hotel what it is, polite, friendly and helpful. The best hotel staff we have come across. The food was great, as a vegetarian there was a variety of choices and a wide variety of differing food each night, couldn't find any fault. Again the restaurant staff are brilliant and they work so hard. The only niggles are, the soft drinks and the orange juice at breakfast which is either like water or far too strong, soft drinks taste a bit cheap but are ok. Still the value for money was great. Limited entertainment and we gave up listening to the resident duo almost every evening. There needs to be more of a variety and it would be better if the entertainment was outdoors instead of inside. Wonderful holiday, would definitely recommend this hotel, thank you Park Plaza, we would definitely return.More

Never mind the weather!!!
Trust us to arrive just as Croatia experiences it's worst weather in 50 years, great. However putting the storms aside the Park Plaza is an excellent hotel if it's location is a bit out of the way. The rooms are well furnished and serviced regularly, all the staff work extremely hard and the food is always well presented and plentiful. The evening entertainment is limited and finishes at 11 as does the bar, but this didn't concern us. Medulin is a short walk away but there is not much to do. The hotel has a dress code for the evening and a no sun bed reservation policy, but unfortunately there are always those who fail to understand it. If you hire a car or use the trips on offer and cross the border remember your passport and take some euro's. In all a excellent hotel for relaxing and doing nothing and no children.More
