“Isabel Carlini - Just Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Had a fabulous holiday in this Thomson Couples Hotel, this hotel should be given a better rating as its as good as any 5 star, The staff are excellent hardworking,very pleasant and so polite I much mention Svetlana the waitress,she just can't do enough for you a waitress in a million, so is Shirley the Thomson rep always very helpful and a very knowledgeable person. There is nothing bad that I could say about this hotel except the wardrobes were a bit on the small side and there were no drawers to put your things in only shelves, other than that minor detail I recommend this hotel and very comfy beds too , really can't fault anything about it .Give it a try you won't be disappointed, and If you want a peaceful night Room 311

Room Tip: 3rd floor room 311 nice sea view and very peaceful .

I had hoped, having read other reviewer's comments, that the hotel would live up to their rating and I'm SO glad to say it did.
We travelled with Thomson's who have made this one of their 'couples hotels' and the hotel staff are working hard to make sure it's a success. Everyone is smiley, helpful and most speak excellent English, a special mention must go to Svetlana who is a waitress in a million - nothing was ever too much trouble for her and we always tried to get a table that she served! The food was really good, not always the case on all inclusive holidays, with plenty of choice and ice cream to die for. I'm not one to moan if the bacon isn't like you get at home - but plenty were - it is disappointing that visitor's feel they must have authentic English breakfasts when they are in another country.
I have to mention the beds (I suffer with a back pain) usually I am doubled up after a few days in a unfamiliar bed. They have the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever slept in, plus luxurious bedding and lovely fluffy bath robes.
We had no trouble getting a sun bed, there are plenty of these including smart double day beds - nice touch. Unfortunately I didn't use the pool, far too cold for me, the sea was warmer!! You do need beach shoes as closest beach is very pebbly and the beach closer to the marina is a mix of san / pebbles. Beautiful clear sea, didn't spot anything nasty like urchins but these may be seasonal??
The events team tried hard to keep their customers happy, we did one afternoon walk to the old town and both girls were very knowledgeable. They also tried hard to resolve the evening seating shortages, which would not have arisen if the evenings had been warmer and drinks could have been taken outside. I'm pretty sure any feedback given to Thomson staff will be taken on board as the manager's seem genuinely keen to keep standards high.
Medulin itself is very quiet out of season, a little too quiet for us, most bars were closed when we arrived but we did notice that several had opened just this week. We were told it's a very lively resort in season, but felt a little 'cheated' that we couldn't have a boat trip or find other excursion providers.
Out of hotel prices vary, you can buy a small beer and glass of wine for as little as 16 Kuna, we got just over 8 Kuna to the pound and the exchange rate was a little better in Croatia. A cup of coffee is generally about £1.75 but again away from the Marina it can be cheaper. We spent a day in Pula, sightseeing, bus price one way is roughly £1.65 and they kept to timetable but are very busy. We got a huge delicious pizza for under five pounds, quite a bit less than the prices around the Forum area.
Will we go back? Definitely, we still have more to see and do, Croatia and its people are warm and welcoming and a second visit is on the cards hopefully later this year.

Room Tip: Our Room was on the side of the hotel No.119 and above the kitchens, so if you're a light sleepe...

Back today from a week at this newly refurbished Thomson Couples hotel. Extremely impressed by everything. The staff are hardworking, polite and eager to help. The food is varied and absolutely delicious. In a week we never got fed up with any aspect of it. The restaurant is large and airy and has a lovely terrace area to enjoy al fresco dining - weather permitting. The rooms are beautifully fitted with huge comfy beds, high quality bed linen, robes, slippers and fridges. A fresh bottle of water is supplied daily along with tea & coffee. The rep, Shirley, is knowledgeable and helpful. The morning 'well-being' sessions of yoga, pilates etc are at a level everyone can cope with so well worth a try. There was something really relaxing about taking part in gentle exercise in the shade of a tree in the hotel garden. Not my usual holiday activity but I am so pleased I gave it a go. The area around the hotel is a haven for those who like to get out and about. Pula is easily accessible on the local bus (reception have timetables etc) and is well worth a visit. There are also many lovely walks in the surrounding area. This is definitely the best Thomson hotel we have stayed in and I would not hesitate to recommend it.

Room Tip: We were in a room overlooking the back of the hotel so did not benefit from the sea view but our roo...

The hotel is better than some 5 star accommodations that I have visited. The room was of a high standard with a large widescreen tv. The food was great with new types of food on every night. The bar was always well manned and we never had to wait long.
The daytime well being fitness class was done during the morning which was enjoyable.
The walks done by Natasha and Victoria in the afternoon and evenings are a must to stretch them legs.
The staff at all times were friendly and helpful.

First to arrive at new "couples" hotel. Completely refurbished to a high standard. Very large comfortable beds, rooms slightly lacking in storage. Good location, excellent food with good choice. Good entertainment from British duo. Rep Shirley excellent very knowledgeable. Resort quiet at moment as start of season.
