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.
Double rooms are contemporary with purple soft furnishings and parquet flooring. They have a walk-in shower, and bathrobes and slippers are provided. For some outside space, you'll have a furnished balcony or terrace.

If you lively, karaoke, bingo etc. this is NOT the place to go to. However, if you want peace, tranquility, superb food, excellent staff and to go to a country full of history, book now.
This was the first time we have ever returned to the same hotel and we are already looking forward to going back.More

Another fantastic holiday
We experienced another fantastic holiday at this hotel. As we had a lovely time last year we decided to go again, and again it didn't disappoint. The staff are wonderful and friendly. The hotel is cleaned to a high standard. The restaurant is great no queing and all amicable, my only criticism is that some of the food could be a bit salty, but a great choose for all types of food groups. Rooms are cleaned daily and again we were really pleased with fresh towels. Tea and coffee replenished every day in the room. We were really pleased with the hotel as we requested the same room as last year but couldn't remember the room number but they accomadated us and fulfilled the request. Got to say the entertainment of think pink were really great! Hopefully we will be bringing out our parents in 2016 and looking forward to another great holiday thank you xMore

Service with a smile
We stayed during the very hot spell in July. The hotel has been remodelled to a high standard. The public areas are spacious and provide a pleasant air conditioned haven in which to relax. We had a double room with a pool view. The balcony is large and well furnished. The room itself had perfectly adequate storage and hanging space for clothes and a very contemporary bathroom. The food was varied, well presented and there was a wide range at each meal. Service was very good, the staff are well trained, personable and excellent linguists. Every effort was made both by them and the excellent Thomson team. Trips were good value ; Venice, Rovinj and the vineyard tour being highlights. Local travel by bus is easy but crowded and not for the delicate in hot weather. We really enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend the hotel.More

Lovely, friendly, relaxing holiday
Arrival - Only 15 mins from the airport. Check in was very efficient. Greeted with juice and fruit kebabs and in our room within 5 minutes.
Staff - extremely friendly and welcoming. Reception, reps, restaurant staff and cleaners (not just your for your room) stop to wish you a good day. (Apart from one waitress which I put down to a bad day but unfortunately she was the same every day. We just decided not to sit at her table). Andrea in the restaurant was particularly lovely.
Rooms - very clean and spacious. Storage a little on the short side but take a couple of your own hangers and you will be fine. (be careful of hidden wardrobe, look either side of the bathroom door) Bed was so comfy! Bathroom very nice with walk in shower that was very good. I had room on 4th floor with sea view which I paid extra for as I heard the others faced the car park. My view was lovely but to be honest the other side would not have bothered me. Yes it does look out at the car park but also towards the very pretty village and twin spired church. Maybe request a higher floor no matter which side for the best views.
Pool area - always kept clean. Sunbeds always available. I did have my favourite but only because a member of my party had crutches and we did need an end space and so we did get up about 7am to be certain of those beds. However, beds were available all day long if you did not mind where they were. Self service drinks available all day. Very quiet and peaceful. The only difference was on pool party/water polo day when loud music is played. It was a nice change but glad it was not everyday.
Restaurant - more than enough tables for everyone. Food lovely! I normally crave a certain food at home and this was the first holiday I was not craving anything. Some reviews have mentioned lack of options. I have no idea just what else they could offer!! Every night there is soup, pizza, pasta, 3/4 meats, 2/3 fish (shark on one occasion) 4/5 types veg, salads, couple options of potatoes (which all taste amazing!) fruit, cakes and ice cream. I think the main mistake of people on all inclusive is putting a 'bit of everything' on their plate. Then every night will be the same. If they were to stick to a specific meal each night they would get the variety.
Entertainment - this is a very quiet hotel. A 5 minute walk to Medulin has more options of bars/restaurants if you fancy a change. The evening entertainment is Think Pink, these are singers and good to sing along with. Twice a week the hotel bring in a more traditional type of entertainment. One, a theatre group who look at the history and legends of Istria. This is quite funny in slapstick way.
In the area - you can walk to the twin spired church at the top of the village about 10 mins. There is also a 10 minute walk to Vizula where you can see the ruins of a great Roman villa built during reign of Augustus. Shops/bars 5 mins away. Taxi ride about 15 mins to Pula which costs about Â£15. here you can see the Roman amphitheatre, harbour and lovely little squares to eat or have a drink.
Excursions - I went to Venice. This was a great day and I thought I could tick Venice of my list. However, I missed loads and still need to go back. It is a 3 hour ferry ride which I was quite afraid of as I heard many people were sick. No one was sick on my crossing but it might be best to take anti sickness pills just in case. I booked on the gondala, water taxi and panorama boat tour. To be honest gondala was 20 euro cheaper than what I could find myself but I had to share with a family, I think I would have rather gone on my own for 80 euro. Water taxi was a complete waste of time. He just drove around all the back 'streets' without actually telling us anything. panorama was good as they take you to see the islands around Venice. I took the meal plan too however, there was no need food was easy to get everywhere around you.
I also did the Plitvice Lakes. This place is stunning! it is a 4 hour coach journey. I want to see these things and so you have to be prepared to travel. The trip was a 6 km walk around the lakes and a boat journey in the middle. Dinner is provided on the journey home. Food was lovely.
My suggestions to make this hotel better. These are not complaints and I would return again regardless. Just some suggestions -
*Please get fresh fruit juice, cordial for breakfast just seems cheap.
*All inclusive drinks. There were cocktail options but not many. I think the cost of the alcohol and the amount paid for the hotel, there is enough to cover a few more cocktail choices. I really missed my Pina Colada
*Self service bar keep open until midnight.More
Lovely adult hotel
Stayed at Park Plaza in June, we requested a sea view room which was on the 3rd floor, this was well worth the extra money, lovely views there are shutters on the Windows which we opened up every morning to make the most of the lovely scenery.
The hotel is very nice the staff polite and hard
working, the pool attendance work very hard and nothing is to much trouble.
Medulin is a short walk away perfect for a stroll in the evening with a few bars and restaurants. Park plaza is a great hotel would highly recommended.More
