Excellent posh stop on an otherwise camping road trip across Europe. Great genuinely friendly staff providing first rate service and OUTSTANDING grub. Walking distance to dozens of swim friendly beaches and only 10 minute drive into Pula. I'd come again. Tip - be very specific if you want sea view. Most commanding views are from balcony rooms overlooking pool and... More

The rooms were so tiny that you couldn't wheel a suitcase past the end of the bed. However, the hotel is on a beautiful cliff over the water. The evening entertainment ( a female vocalist and two guitarists ) were absolutely wonderful! The service was spotty, at bat.

Friendly people, clean rooms and wonderful property. Location is a great launching point for day trips, there is a bus station just a block off property and there are enough amenities to keep you occupied if you don’t want to venture out. Like many Euro hotels, things are a bit tight, but we didn’t spend much time in the room.... More

This hotel is a fantastic find. We booked through Thomson after looking at the nearby Verudela apartments however we realised that the hotels half board wasn't much more at all so went for that option instead and we were so pleased we did. The room had a brilliant view of the sea and pool - I would pay extra for... More

We stayed for 3 nights in a superior room with balcony, the hotel is new and modern with good facilities. The rooms are fairly small but still comfortable with a good size shower. There's plenty of parking and the hotel has a pool, gardens and a small beach (Hawaii beach) with free sun loungers for guests. The food and service... More

Stayed here on a half board basis for a week with my partner and two sons. The only two negatives that I personally have that downgrades the score to a 4/5 were that the swimming pool is salt water (which I understand is because of water shortages but the salt really gets in your eyes) and the lack of sun...

This was our fourth visit to Croatia as a family and we were'nt disappointed.

We're on our last day of a lovely week in the sun at Park Plaza Arena. As the other reviews have mentioned,good location with bus into Pula (the Arena is worth the 50 kuna admission to see the well- preserved Amphitheatre and subterranean education section). High season so sunbeds being reserved were annoying but we did get some at 0815,... More
