We've just returned from Histria it was our first holiday in Croatia and our first all inclusive one too the hotel is very nicely modernised and the rooms are spacious clean and comfortable.The food was beautiful plenty of choice and variation daily however only having the one restaurant included in all inclusive I have to say by the end of the week I was getting a little tired of meat veg and salad !!! The area is stunning the beaches are not sand but still stunning and the sea was a delight to swim in the only thing I could fault was there wasn't enough to do in the area the hotel is on a peninsula with another hotel and some apartments with only one other restaurant /bar to go to for a change.I like to go out exploring etc which would have meant a walk down a main road which wasn't ideal...We would definitely return if your after sun sea and relaxation this is the hotel for you ...

Just returned from a week away with our daughter son in law and new grandson,nice clean hotel, good food and friendly staff.It was our first holiday with Thomson, all inclusive.Flight on time,well done crew,even if a bit up yourselves. Short hop to the resort, all went to plan..
Drinks offered not a very good choice,unless you want to pay.Bar staff, a little training required to serve brandy in correct glass for eg, being (all inc) I did find service a bit selective at times,though on the whole good.Rooms cleaned daily to a good standard,shame only showers in ensuite, all rooms.Restaurant staff friendly,food good from self service,though be quick, as some holiday makers feel the need to grab whatever they can carry, only to leave most of it. Fantastic indoor pool. Looking forward to our next visit. Thankyou and well done to the staff and management of The Park Plaza Histria, Pula.

It is the last day of our week long stay at the Park Plaza Histria. We took the Thomson all inclusive package and are here with our 6 year old son.

The hotel is modern, clean and is in a perfect location with beautiful sea views and just a 10 min bus journey into the centre of Pula. The staff here are extremely helpful, friendly and welcoming and speak a variety of languages. The restaurant is spotless and offers a wide variety of foods. Even as a vegetarian I felt there was plenty of choice.

We went on two of the excursions organised my the hotel , the photography trail and boat trip to nearby Monks Island, which id highly recomend. The guides Dario and Antonia were friendly and knowledgeable. Our son loved the kids club which caters for a variety of age groups.

The beaches nearby are clean, and although rocky, are perfect for swimming and snorkelling. The hotel pool overlooks the sea and staff always ensure you dont go thirsty.

We'd highly recomend the hotel.

my partner and i were very satisfied with this hotel. we stayed on a all inclusive basis. Could not fault the food at all the presentation of the food was outstanding also and i am normally quite fussy with my food, the staff are very friendly and cant do enough for you but have to mention ana and ira at the pool who were exceptional. the weather was alot hotter than i thought it was going to be, very hot. overall our holiday was fantastic and would love to go back again. if you want a holiday where you want to chill in beautiful settings this is the place to go.

the only thing i would fault would be the evening entertainment as there wasnt much on.

My husband and I enjoyed a week staying here in May. The room was modern and clean with the added perk of sky tv.
It was our first visit to Croatia but definitely not the last.
Our favourite place was the Champagne Bar. Surroundings were beautiful and the bar attendant Greta couldn't have been more helpful.
The pool area was an oasis of comfort, helpful staff and clean.
We have travelled to many places around the world but have never stayed in such a relaxed,hygienic place. Croatia is gorgeous and I can't wait to visit again! Will definitely stay here again.

Have just returned from a very nice week at the Histria Park Plaza. The hotel is one of the best coastal/seaside hotels we have visited in Europe. The location of the hotel is excellent being on the Verudella peninsular, in addition to the views out to sea you have the daily activity of watching the yachts and other boats coming out of the marina nearby.
The hotel is very modern with a wide range of facilities which includes the largest indoor swimming pool I have seen. The staff were all very friendly and seem to go out of their way to make you welcome. Not sure about the previous comments about the Lobby Bar staff as we only got coffee from there, definitely agree the pool bar staff do an excellent job .
Our first room was 305 which appeared to be great, until I walked out onto the balcony and was faced with the loud high pitch whistle sound from the air handling vents on the adjoining roof. There was no way I could relax on that balcony. This was mentioned to the reception staff member who came up to listen to the noise and promptly moved us to another room.
The room we had was large, well fitted, great king size bed, luxury bathroom and comfortable, for the TV addict it’s the best UK TV you will get in a non UK hotel.
We did not have any complaints about the restaurant and found the variety of food served to be good. I cannot say the same of the drinks served, as a non beer or spirits drinker I had coke or wine the wine was just OK ,but the coke was, not coke, the bar pump soft drinks were poor, a point I will mention later.
The outdoor swimming pool is a good size but the pool terrace is to small for the number of guests and the dozen or so umbrellas and seats around the pool were reserved by 8am, by the early morning towel brigade( Such an annoying habit). We went to swim in the sea but you have to pay for loungers at the Yacht Club or the indoor pool which was almost empty most days.
Overall we had a great holiday with a trip to Porec and Plitvice Lakes, the lakes are a long trip we left at 7.15am and got back 10.30pm but it was well worth it, you cannot describe how beautiful the lakes and falls are.
As I said above this is one of the best beachside hotels we have stayed in and we have stayed in lots
However a couple of negatives.
A point on towels, make sure you change your towels rather than get your card back for the following day as one day there were no towels available.
For Thomson UK guests the hotel provides an all inclusive basis. I believe this is a mistake for a quality hotel like the Histria and will lead to lots of moans. The same standard of drinks in particular are not offered. When I ordered a coke I got a glass filled with a flat coke like liquid, on the next table a non all inclusive guest gets a glass delivered by the waiter with ice and a slice of lemon and a bottle of Coca Cola. Also you do have the All Inclusive “drink all day guests” who gets a bed near the pool bar so he can drink from 10am. Having worked in the travel industry you see this wherever you have all inclusive.
Would I return to the Histra, definitely but I would seek out a non all inclusive holidays deal if possible

Room Tip: Before you unpack have a sit on the balcony and check for machinery noise from the roof. Higher is...

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your review of your stay at the Park Plaza Histria, your compliments are very much appreciated. We are happy to hear that you enjoy the hotel's facilities, the surrondings as well as the room. Being considered as „one of the best coastal/seaside hotels“ it's hugely inspiring and we are delighted to hear that you appreciated the high level of service provided by our staff. With reference to your beverage experience in the bar, we have spoken to the Thomson Manager who asked us to thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. Also, we would like to mention that the problem with the sunbeds has been solved. We are happy to inform you that additional sunbeds have been placed on the overall pool area. In order to be fair to all, we do ask guests not to leave their sunbeds unattended in excess of 40 minutes in case there are other guests waiting for a particular spot around the main pool, which is the most sought after area.
We very much appreciate your recommendation and look forward to welcoming you again very soon.

Kind Regards,

The Park Plaza Histria Management
