    Average hotel, decent value

    During the summer season we paid a relatively high price that would get you a 4 or 5 star hotel for the same price in Dubai for example. Staff at check-in was a bit stressed out and we felt that. Staff at the restaurant was welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful. Pool is salt-water, clean, and there is a tiny wading pool for toddlers. The pebble beach is very scenic with some 3 to 4m high cliffs you can jump off of, but the beach is relatively small so it is very crowded during the peak times. The beach is publicly accessible meaning access is not limited to only hotel guests. Rooms are small. They seem like they were recently renovated. Beds and bathrooms are clean, but the carpet seemed like a poor design choice and was stained in the room where we stayed. The best thing about the hotel are the nice grounds, grassy area in the pine forest, large yoga wooden platform and quick access (five minute walk) to the Aquarium.

    The staff was very helpful, especially Kelli at the front desk; also bartender and waiters. The beach and shoreline was convenient, as was the sitting area (they could put out more lounges and leave them out longer on the beach; individually attached to ground since they are worried about theft). Many activities nearby, though we did not try many.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The hotel decor is quite Mid-century modern. There is a beAutiful sloping lawn dotted with lounge chairs leading to the beach, which is characteristically pebbly. A path winds around the coastline with a sophisticated nearby restaurant and a point at the outermost edge where people gather to watch the sunset. The staff is fantastic, especially our hardworking waiter and Kelli at the front desk, who gave us excellent advice on restaurants, where to get a Covid test - easy - and Pula attractions.

    We had a wonderful week here in August. The hotel is part of a group of 3 hotels & villas on the Verudela Peninsula, all within walking distance and you have a access to them all. The Park Plaza Arena is smaller and quieter than the its sister hotel Histria & the Verudela Villas. There was a nice mix of young and older couples and families. Its set slightly back from the sea (approx 150m) with pines trees all around. There are beds and hammocks under the pine trees for use by guests as well as sunloungers around the pool. The pool has chlorinated salt water but don't let that put you off as that is the case with all the other hotels too. The beach has large flat stones so aqua shoes are recommended. The sea is beautifully clear. There is a water slide (free) and an play aqua inflatable course (chargeable) paddle board & kayak hire. Buffet breakfast was fabulous with lots of choice offering fruit, meats, cheese, cooked items, pastries and great coffee. Dinner buffet was equally extensive, or there was a la carte. Due to Covid, staff served the buffets at each section but that didn't hinder how much you could have. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to make your stay enjoyable. We have 2 children and had a 2 bedroom garden suite which was fantastic. Views through the pine trees with the sea beyond. Very peaceful indeed. We would highly recommend this hotel.

    By the beach, it is a perfect place to rest and enjoy the nature. Great breakfast, with a good selection of cheese and charcuterie, vegan milks, cakes, sweets and the coffee is a proper espresso! The dinner also has a amazing variety of options.
