We stayed in a three room apartment, nice but no elevator ti the third floor. Nice surroundings with lot of pools and places to take a swim in the Adriatic sea. Several restaurants with nice food. We probably will come back.
I visited this hotel back in July with 3 friends. We staying in a one bed apartment and used the sofa bed in order to sleep all four of us. The actual designated bedroom was wonderful, it was large and plenty of storage room for all our clothes, a big TV and air on unit. The blinds on the window made it pitch black which was ideal with it being so sunny outside. We also had a lovely sea view from our bedroom. The living area was of a decent size, we had a nice balcony with enough food for all four of us to sit outside for breakfast, same goes for the kitchen table. The kitchen area was small but enough facilities to made the odd dinner or lunch. The sofa bed was the only let down really. The girls who slept on it said how uncomfortable it was. Unfortunately the patio door had no blinds on which was such a shame as the window above the sofa bed did but the fact the patio doors didn’t meant the light flooded the downstairs space as soon as the sun was up. A simple set of blinds would have made this space much better for those sleeping downstairs. The pool area was lovely and clean with great views over the sea, there was two pools one aimed at the children and one aimed at teen/adults. We visited at the beginning of July thinking this was during term time however there was a lot of families with school ages children there making the pool area very noisy. I appreciate other countries have different term times so not really a criticism just an observation. The sea area was nice for taking inflatables out (we didn’t feel this was appropriate in the pools due to all the children) we wish we had taken sea shoes though as it’s all rocky which can be quite hard to get into but there where plenty of stairs it just meant you had to jump straight in. There was plenty to do near by lots of activities and nice restaurants and we ate at the hotel a few times. All our meals were really tasty and reasonably priced with large portions. We didn’t quite realise when we booked the apartment what a huge complex this was, I think this should be made more obvious on the website as we may not have chosen this if we had realised. I think this hotel would be great for families. Not ideal if you are looking for peace and quiet.
Spent a week here in a one bed apartment, the rooms were fabulous & kept so clean , everything you need on Site lovely restaurants, Bars , supermarket , however if you do wish to go to town the bus stops right outside here and costs around €1:10 , the pool area is fantastic what a view , highly recommend & will return
I booked this hotel independently through Trip Adviser knowing the area we wanted to stay and going on other people's reviews. My partner and i stayed 5 nights in late September so the resort was quiet and peaceful. We both remarked that it would be too crowded for us in high season as there were limited spaces at the beach and pool and clearly not enough sun loungers or 'prime spots' to accommodate everyone. As we went low season, every bar and restaurant on the resort was quick service and a great choice of food. We had a self catering apartment very close to the beach and the on site supermarket provided all our bread and cheese needs for lunch. We had croissant and coffee every morning after a swim at the Illy coffee shop and dinner at the main resort restaurant which is self service and plentiful with a huge range of salad bar and desert banquet! There is a fantastic restaurant by the lighthouse, a 5 minute walk away where we spent many hours on the balcony with beer watching the sea. The food here is excellent and slightly cheaper than the main resort and it is a lot more informal. We also sampled cocktails in the main hotel bar and the champagne bar which has some gorgeous bottled beers. The apartments themselves were modern, well equipped and spotless, as was the entire resort. It all looked very well cared for so to only pay £50 a night to stay felt like a total bargain. The reception is always open for assistance and the staff have golf buggies to take you and your luggage to the apartment. Buses and taxis are easy and cheap into Pula. We went in just once to visit the roman arena and spent the rest of the time at the beach, eating and drinking. Great holiday destination for everyone, very welcoming and family friendly, even the dogs had their own beach to frolic on!
The resort is set in extensive grounds on a peninsula, with several little beaches for swimming and snorkelling, lovely walks in woodland and round the coast, with wonderful sunsets. We had a one-bedroomed apartment overlooking the sea with balcony. This was overlooking a lovely large swimming pool, though the water was absolutely freezing! The sea was much warmer. The apartment was adequately equipped, with televisions in the lounge and bedroom. The complex has a wonderful aquarium which rehabilitates turtles, so worth a visit. There are various activities like cycling, tennis etc. The clientele was mixed, young, old, parents with children, and also different nationalities which I found interesting. The complex has strict rules about noise which really pleased me! No noise in the afternoons or after 11pm, so we weren’t bothered by drunken rowdies in the middle of the night. (And we’ve often suffered from this on holidays abroad with mainly Brits!) This resort is not really suitable for people with mobility problems. The apartments have no lifts, and there are a lot of steps to negotiate down to the pool and beaches, with no handrails to hold. There is a bus stop just outside the complex with regular buses into the town of Pula, and the prices are really cheap. All the staff are friendly and helpful, and the complex is run efficiently. This was a lovely holiday which I would highly recommend to others.
Went to apartment in September was put on third floor but with no lifts found it hard going up all those stairs so asked to be moved.They moved us to a lower apartment no problem. The apartment was very nice and well kept only problem stairs to bedroom very steep. Complex and swimming pool excellent and restaurants very good Probably not enough bars about Staff very helpfull and polite.Pula long walk or shirt bus ride is very nice. Would I recommend this place Yes without a doubt scenery is beautiful and just a nice place to be
First visit to Croatia and we fell on our feet with this lovely resort. Set in extensive grounds, right on a rocky peninsular with the most amazing crystal clear sea, and more sport activities you can shake a tennis racket at.... We had a one bed apartment with sea view, wow..... Lovely accomodation with everything you could need (except a toaster). Even a microwave... A complimentary mobile phone to use for surfing and phone calls, yep it was free to use and take out with you..... Never had that before buy how useful. WiFi throughout the resort was free and good strength. Large smart TV in the lounge, decent balcony with clothes airer, broom.... Everything you could need. Upstairs was the large bedroom and another TV.... Loads of storage with a safe in the wardrobe. Steps up were very steep though. Aircon upstairs and down is a handy touch as well. The resort is services by regular buses in and out of Pula, 3a in to town and 2a back from the bus station. Or you can walk it in about an hour which is what we did. The resort has a number of pools and restaurants and shops, including a supermarket.... Very useful and the cheap white wine in plastic bottles was ok. Could this place get any better.... Well yes, if you book direct with them. We paid €400 for a week self catering, flights were 80 quid return with BA, and a couple we spoke to that booked with Thomson paid just on £1000 for the same week. So a top notch resort with pretty much all you could need. Can't fault it at all, although it does lack a proper bar to chill out in.
Stayed here for a week in September in a self catering one bedroom apartment. The apartment was modern clean and spacious, the bathroom was also lovely with an excellent shower. There is 1 bedroom with twin beds and a bed settee in the lounge area. As there were 3 of us I slept in this bed and I found it to be pretty comfortable. There is also a large screen TV in both the bedroom and lounge area. There is a safety deposit box that can be used in the bedroom at no extra cost. The apartment was cleaned every day and the towels were also changed daily. There was a small patio area to the front of the apartment with table & chairs but I would say the only downside was that this faced on the path to the pool area so was not very private and we did only get the sun on it early in the morning. The pool area is really good with lots of sun bed available although you do have to pay for the beds, they cost 20 Kuna per bed for the day, this works out at about £2.30 but this was not a problem and we did feel it probably prevents those people that wasnt to put a towel on the bed early in the morning to reserve the beds. The complex as a whole was really lovely and clean and the eating places again were really nice particularly the one by the pool area. The food was reasonably priced and very nice. I would say the supermarket on the complex is not particularly cheap but then they never are and there are plenty of supermarkets in the little town of Pula which is just a short bus journey away. We went self catering, although we did have breakfast in their dinning room on several occasions which I thought was really good with a excellent choice although this worked out about £8.00 each. I would definitely recommend the Verudela and would not hesitate to go back.
Considering the wide variety of activities that you can take there, it is a good resort for family travelling children. Like all other resorts, you can spend a day here without much problem. Note that it is 10-15 minutes to Pula by car and you need even more extra time for other locations.
Beautiful area,lovely beaches(pebble) and coniferous woods,accomodation clean,adequate,needs a few minor changes,we weren't impressed with single sheets on a double bed,and the lack of bedside table or light switch.the restaurant served good food,lots of choice and the poolside area was nice,well worth the small extra charge,friendly staff,good service. The Plano bar at the Histria hotel was well worth a visit..
