“Noisy, but very good otherwise.”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

I stayed here for a week with a few friends. It's a beautiful place and well maintained. If you get up early you will see a veritable army of people cleaning and repairing the place. The rooms are well thought out and comfortable. However, I have a warning: Noise. For some unfathomable reason, the management of this hotel feel the need to play terrible, terrible dance music at maximum volume at every possible opportunity. This is particularly true around the pool, where for several hours a day the nearby apartments are rendered uninhabitable (unless of course you have a penchant for bad 90's europop). To be fair, they do turn it off for a few hours siesta in the afternoon and after 11pm (most of the time), otherwise it pounds through the walls of your room.

Otherwise, the location is excellent. The Adriatic is on your doorstep and is lovely to swim in. The food is good, but the poolside bars all have the same (limited menu). There is a lovely restaurant on the avenue serving excellent food and the buffet breakfast is brilliant. Pula, is a fascinating city to visit with lots to see and do.

Room Tip: Avoid the area near the pool.

Got a 1-bed apartment with a sofabed on first floor. The apartment was new, but the sofabed was only average and the buildings are noisy. Crowded pool area, but better in the afternoon. Many people reserving sun beds early in the morning, and not returning until late after. Many beaches nearby, we did not try them. Recommeded for families with children and teenagers. Good bus service to Pula 5 minutes walk from hotel. Expensive taxies here compared to oter Croatian cities.

This place is great for family trips as there are many atractions. Be aware that the minus is that you have to have a lot of cash as all is payed extra. The cool stuff is that if you are with kids anf more than 4 you can rent a two bedroom apartment which is very cool and nice. Good TV, A/C , kitchen ect. Very modern. The employees are friendly and profesional. Be aware that this is a huge resort and you feel a holuday but not like in a tipical hotel as all you want from the pool bed to any extras you have to pay and it is not cheap.

A very nice hotel lots to do and great rooms but is it too much to ask that a poolside snack bar can prepare a sandwich? if there are no premade ones left they can offer you a pizza what's that all about? the food in all of the restaurants seems very much the same pasta pizza or grilled meat. the resort would benefit from an Indian or Chinese or at least a speciality fish restaurant. the only other negative is please don't expect a beach it's a load of small rocks or lie on a big rock.Apart from this the staff are really nice and friendly and everything is like brand new so overall not bad.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your feedback and for your recent stay with us. We are happy to know that you found our staff very friendly and welcoming and that the recent renovation was also to your liking. We offer various snack sandwiches with different fillings, but as you notice there is no possibility to make a custom one in the same moment of your order.
That being said, please note that in our restaurant Taverna (fine dining) you can find a variety of healthy foods and different flavors. Also, in our Yacht club there is a possibility to try various fish specialties. You can select menus including starters, cold and hot dishes with beverages included. We look forward to having the opportunity of welcoming you back to our iconic establishment at some point in the future.

Kind Regards,
The Park Plaza Verudela Management

We stayed at this hotel when we got married in Pula and we were very satisfied. The only thing that could be better for families with small children is accessability with strollers, there are no elevators.

Kids loved it, adults loved it, dog was content! Beautiful location, well-kept facilities, lots of entertainment and a very friendly staff. We rented a 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom apartment with a "park view." Our room actually had a partial ocean view from both balconies! What a surprise! The room was clean and plenty big for 3 adults and 2 kids. We loved the pools, the slides, the rocky beaches (bring rubber shoes), the kids club (free for ages 4+), the shopping, the lounging, etc. Everything was perfect. We didn't eat at the restaurants other than the little seafood restaurant right on the water about a 5 minute walk around the coast. It was delicious. The grocery store was well equipped and actually had decent prices. The cost of the beach toys was more than double at other beaches in/around Pula.
The only caution about the hotel was the noise was quite loud in the evenings, but it was simply from guests and kids enjoying themselves so how can we complain? The other minor thing was the water slide has a small cost to it. Other than that, it was a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: We upstairs in a 2 BR, 2 Bathroom apartment on the furthest west side of the resort, facing the beac...

It is a perfect vacation place for young families. I have spent some time with my family including 2yrs old grand son and we all just loved it.
Pros : location just amidst greenery, by the beach, big enough and well equipped swimming pool with salt water, amazing staff -friendly and professional, well maintained and fully equipped apartments, non stop service, enough of fun facilities for everyone : grandma, young parents, young single uncle and toddler :-)), store on site, several restaurants and bars. It cannot get better.
Cons : there are none !

Room Tip: Avoid studio rental if you mind sleeping on a sofa in a living room. Except that, studio is perfect.
