This was our favourite hotel during the 10 days we spent travelling Croatia. Very comfortable, very clean, very friendly staff and owners...family owned. We would definitely stay here again. I liked the themed decoration and lighting throughout the hotel, it was well thought out and very attractive. Location: This is a great place away from the crowds and other tourists, yet only a few minutes from the beaches. You will need to have a car to get around as it's a quiet village. Room: Quiet, huge room, with a nice view of the pool and surrounding area. Two single beds pushed together to form one large king size bed, plus a fold out bed with privacy curtain. Electrical outlet on each side of the bed. The bathrobes were much appreciated. There is a refrigerator you can use to store cold drinks in. Bathroom: the shower had excellent water pressure and lots of hot water, something we don't always get in hotels! There's a hair dryer, bidet, and plenty of sink space for your toiletries. Soap/shampoo is in a wall dispenser. Dining: We had dinner in the restaurant and I can honestly say it was the best during our entire stay. I ordered traditional Croatian dishes and there is plenty on the menu...meat, fish, and vegetarian selections. Breakfast had a standard cold buffet of meat, cheese, breads, cereal, and yogurt...also was offered eggs cooked to order and freshly made coffee. Everything was very good. Wi-Fi: very fast connection...very happy!

If you want to have a nice dinner in a peaceful surrounding of the village Šišan, 8 km from Pula in the direction of Ližnjan, Medulin, Velanera or Bodulka (the other name of the same restaurant), you should go there. The restaurant is known for its chef who is very well known in Istria, Dušan Černjul. We were there yesterday evening. The chef said that the heart is the most important part of the cooking❤️! We had the veal meat 'pod pekom' and the meat of young local beaf called boškarin. Both dishes were delucious. We had creme chantilly with raspberry sauce for dessert. Perfect. I always order this dessert there and I'm always very satisfied. We drank Medea sparkling wine for the starter and malvasia wine of the same producer later on. Both wines were very fresh and of the right temperature. The surrounding is very nice, full of mediteranian flowers, there is a pool for the guests of the hotel - Velanera has more then 20 rooms as well. In the end the price of the dinner was acceptable. Highly reccomend.

It is a place with a splendid view and fabulous cuisine. You can taste local dishes and sea food. Everything is very gourmet. The staff are extremely amiable to children. The building is cosy, I guess it must be wonderful here in winter, near the fireplace. I'd love to come here for my next holiday so much!

It's an apsolute relaxion zone. The rooms are very large. The bed is amazing - huge and comfy. Bathroom is also large and well equipped - even a bide! The breakfast is good, but ask the staff for something else you want. There is a moderate amount od options, but you will find something. The coffee, though, is way too weak. The pool is clean, relaxing and wonderful. The staff is nice and welcoming. We didn't try the restaurant. If to be nitpicky, the sound of the light generator in the bathroom is a bit loud. Also, the towels and bathrobes could do with more fabric softener. The exterior and the interior are mismatched in style (mediterranian and ultra modern), but it's a persobal preference.

We had a 5 night stay in September 2017. Although we had booked our room online months before, they couldn't find our reservation upon arrival, but managed to find a room after moving another regular guest. The hotel is situated in a very quiet village fairly close (by car) to local beaches. The restaurant is a little bit overpriced, but the food is nice. The outdoor pool has very cold water and I couldn't find the courage to dive in (it rained 2 days, which might also be a factor). The breakfast hasn't the diversity I expected and one of the jams had mold. The area is beautiful, once you reach the shore. I reckon is a good destination for relaxation, but without the sights and the beaches that Croatia has plenty of. And one last thing, they spoke only a few words in English, but probably managed better in German, Italian.
