I am currently staying at park plaza appartments the resort is very big and very clean the apartment is cleaned daily and fresh towels daily the kuglana restraunt is very good value for money pula is only 15 mins away by bus and very cheap to eat and get drinks the staff are very friendly and helpfull the only down side is having to pay for sunbeds on the beach and at the pool if ur staying at the complex they should be more accomadating to quests that have already paid a small fortune to stay here also the bar on the beach is very expensive for water and soft drinks the staff apolozise all the time its not there fault they just work there over all a nice place but very very expensive
We initially were interested in a 1 bedroom apartment, but went for the studio, and it was great. Spotlessly clean, as was the whole resort, really well designed, great shower. The staff on site are really friendly and efficient.
Arrived on Sunday 4th June with Jet2 Holidays, had prebooked a private transfer to save going on the coach ( albeit that it's approx 20 minutes or so to the airport). Dealt with efficiently at check in though an issue raised by reception staff as didn't have the accommodation voucher. I attempted to rectify this via e-mail but it took 2 days and questions whenever we went to reception and a phone call by reception to the room to resolve this. Accommodation was clean and comfortable with a decent sofa bed and a really useful kitchenette area, maid service good throughout and maintenance very prompt . Only real negative was the noise level which was in part due to parents letting children run around in corridors but as we were next to the stairs we could hear people on the stairs. Also found the balcony overlooked and due to the greenery around became full of mosquitoes and midges at certain times of day A quick 2 minutes walk and we were on the pebble beach, double bed and umbrella and drinks for 150 Kuna, not the cheapest but the staff were brilliant and attentive throughout. We booked half board for our 9 night stay and the restaurant staff were brilliant ( in particular the maitre d' Slavica) the food was of a decent standard with plenty of choices, a bit repetitive at times but always something to eat. Drinks were quite expensive but no more than average hotel prices. Pula itself was a great city to visit, also hired a car for 3 days on site and went off to explore Istria, a fabulous experience and has made us want to revisit the area. Plenty of sports facilities on site, though apart from the hotel entertainment there were limited things to do locally in the evenings, that said a local bus runs into Pula every 20 minutes for 11 Kuna per person, taxis around 80 kuna. All in all an enjoyable visit with lots of highlights, a couple of issues but mostly all good.
First time in Croatia, omg why had I not been before, beautiful place, very clean , polite staff and very helpful, we had a studio for 7 days, sofa bed not too bad to be honest, very modern and well stocked apartment , a toaster would of been good though! The pools and sea views are amazing , stunning , lovely walks, not much to do on evening but there is a lovely little bar at end of the road, definitely a relaxing break if that's what you are looking for, sunbed get taken pretty quick , but I like the fact they are all locked up around the pool and gates don't open until 9 , so you queue to get your bed which I think is a good idea, we spent every day apart from one on the actual sea front on one of the big comfy beds you do have to pay and not that cheap around £17 a day but that includes a umbrella and drink , and to be honest the views are worth every penny, will be returning definitely next year , looking into it already , just beautiful place
Lovely hotel, location and people. The only downside is the studio apartments are made up with sofa bed and its really uncomfortable. Would definitely suggest booking a one bedroom apartment to avoid this. Also must check school holiday dates as loads of kids. In saying all this would definitely to back as lovely spot with very helpful people and service.
Stayed here first 2 weeks of June apartments are nice fridge hob kettle microwave but no microwave cooking dishes so you unable to use, restaurants overpriced with not much to offer, supermarket on site very expensive things will cost you 3 times more than uk so take a trip to Aldi in pula . You also have to pay for your sun beds £2.50 per day each same again if you want brolly .this holiday is purely based on the views which to be quite honest you can find in other countries. If you enjoy going out for walks to nice restaurants at night this place is not for you
Arrived on the 8th of June 2017 no nonsense check in which was nice. We had an elderly person with us which had walking difficulties so we asked for a ground floor apartment and we got one. The apartment was for six people 2 bedroomed and was kept in perfect condition by the cleaning staff throughout our stay. There is a microwave and kettle. Also a 2 ring hob top for cooking but no oven so you were restricted to what you could cook, but there are good restaurants on the complex. The reception staff was very friendly and helpful. The apartments have English Channels on television i liked Channel 19 played 80 s music all day long. It can be noisy at night due to the amount of families staying children screaming etc but only till about 11.00 pm everything goes fairly quiet then. These apartments are probably one of the best ones I have stayed in. The bus stop to pula is about 500m from the reception and cost about £1.00 good value for money and the buses are frequent. Good Tip - If you can hire a car there is so much to see in these areas like the national park just below Pula which has beautiful beaches with clear waters. Must if you have kids - Get Swimming shoes as the beaches are pebbly Would I stay here again - 100% Yes.
Spent 4 nights here through the UK schools May half term, this ensure that the weather was nice and warm/hot and the complex was relatively quiet. Reception staff were very thorough and polite and the apartment we were given was open plan, airy, light and clean, with all of the amenities you would need to cook basic meals and drinks. The complex itself is very clean with plenty to do, and like the rest of Croatia the staff are welcoming and always with a smile (well everyone except the till lady in the super market who didn`t like changing large notes!!) I would highly recommend for active couples/families NB: prices are a tad high compared to down town Pula
We are currently staying at these apartments and I am at a loss as to how this place can be #3. While the complex is lovely with amazing views over the bay it's very expensive for very average food.....we was expecting much more from a Park Plaza. If I wanted to pay £10 for a vodka and tonic I would of gone to London then at least had a choice of nice food and places to eat. As the hotel & apartments cover the whole Verudela area they have the monopoly so you are stuck (which is maybe why the dont put any effort into the food) so you will need to spend money on taxis into Pula or other nicer areas to eat. NOTE: they even charge for sun-beds which I cannot believe as where do they think we will lay whilst round the swimming pool in the place we booked for a holiday!
We arrived at the park plaza and the reception was nice and helpful we had a studio appt plus half board as we haven't been to Croatia before the appt was very clean and contemporary the bed was a sofa bed which was ok but we was glad we were only here for a week, maids came in everyday with clean towels and to tidy up also nice and friendly , we had a nice side view overbooking pool area and sea.The food choices was ok ,but wouldn't do it again as similar choices most days.we were very disappointed at the later part of the week being charged for sun beds as told only a small charge which turned out to be 90 lunar for two plastic beds with umbrella either at pool or at the beach and dble beds were150 Kunner which is quiet a lot ,also very busy as school holidays in Europe,which we didn't know and it was like Euro camp.We liked the area and it was easy to get around no entertainment only for the children,some of the bars near resort were nice but quite ,we enjoyed our holiday on the whole and the facilities was good plenty of sporting activities,but would perhaps go into the hotel if we returned .
