Pro: Room was spacious and clean, with air conditioning in both lounge and bedroom area. Minimal noise disturbance Staff were pleasant. Good location for beach (approx 10 mins walk), though was around 30 min walk into town which may be an issue for some travellers. Ample parking facilities. Cons: Restaurant was closed down, which was not made clear in any way prior to our arrival. There didn't seem to be any bar facilities either, staff seemed to leave early evening in most cases (I believe from other reviews that they've stayed to provide drinks on request) On returning to the hotel each evening (typically around 7-8pm), we would usually find it locked, with all the lounge area/stairs/corridor outside the room in complete darkness, which was not particularly welcoming (as well as being a trip hazard) and gave the place an 'abandoned' feel. These issues wouldn't be significant were it not for the fact that the hotel was classified as 5 star. It was overpriced for what was delivered.

We're just back from a long weekend staying at this lovely hotel in Pula. Before we left for our trip, we did see a negative review on here about this hotel which threw is into a bit of a panic, however we made contact with the hotel and from that point onward the service we received was brilliant! Martina couldn't do enough for us, reassuring us by answering questions the trip advisor review had thrown up as well as booking our taxi to meet us from the hotel. Mr Vulin was there to greet us personally and invited us to check into our room 10am on the morning of our arrival. We also enjoyed a late checkout on the day of our departure, access to the hotel for the day and again, a taxi booked (and local going-rate price agreed) for us. The room was just lovely. We are a family of 4. The room was a superior suite and had 1 double room, 1 twin room, a living room area and a private balcony with comfortable seating. The pictures on the hotel's site are very accurate and I would suggest taken recently. The hotel was very clean, comfortable, secure and air conditioned. I did read reviews on here criticizing the star rating of this hotel. I personally think that is very unfair. There is no global star rating scheme which suggests a 5* hotel in Dubai for example, would or should be matched by a 5* elsewhere. I fully believe this is a deserved rating for a 5* hotel for this area - and if you check the prices, it is not really much more expensive than lesser starred hotels that can't offer the comfort or air conditioning nor deliver the level of service we enjoyed. It is true that the hotel is a little out of the way. But just a little. It is not in the city centre, nor at the beach (which were both very busy with tourists due to it being peak season), but what we really liked about that is that we were in the middle of both of these spots with a short walk and an easy 10 minute bus journey to either destination for about the equivalent of £3.50 for our family fare. Buses ran every 20 minutes up until midnight including Sundays. The children enjoyed the fun of catching the bus with the locals and to be honest, so did I and when we got back to our hotel, we had space and peace and slept brilliantly. No traffic noise, no hustle and bustle of other tourists. The only thing that we did feel was a terrible shame is that there were so few guests. I think during our 3 night break there was only 1 other room booked for part of the time and this is peak season! It's such a shame because it's such a wonderful place to stay. We do suggest people take Trip Advisor reviews as a subjective review by someone who may not have exactly the same needs, wants or ideas as you. We read comments about the restaurant being closed etc. We were invited to dine in the restaurant and offered breakfast. We declined as we wanted to keep a free schedule and get out and about exploring as much as we could but the offer was there and I am absolutely in no doubt that had we booked for dinner or breakfast, the food and service would have been great. I would recommend this hotel to others, particularly families and couples - anyone who can walk for 5 minutes to a bus stop really. Thank you Mr Vulin and your team. Thank for a lovely stay and for your warm and generous hospitality.

Villa Vulin is a well appointed hotel but the restaurant was closed. About a ten minute taxi from town centre, so the on site restaurant would have been convenient. Nearby restaurant was excellent though. Staff at the hotel were very helpful. In the evening the receptionist doubled as the bar person and this was not very efficient although the lady was charming and tried to be helpful. Rooms were ample and clean with all the required facilities.

The hotel is a good 25mins walk from the city centre but we wanted to stay where parking would not be a problem - there were loads of spaces just outside the hotel under a cover. The staff were extremely helpful. Being late September, the hotel was quiet and we were delighted to be able to check in early and check out late so we could make the most of our short time in Pula. Breakfast costs extra but it was worth it for the quality - everything was served to our table. The room was very spacious and the hotel generally is in very good condition. Happy to recommend.
