We spent a week in this hotel from 16-23 July. The hotel was apparently renovated around a year ago and is of an extremely high standard of decor and cleanliness. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom facilities were great and we had a lovely view of the marina from our balcony. We went all inclusive through Thomson and whilst I could not fault the food, in particular the meal we had in the gourmet Istrian taverna, which was beautiful, I did feel that as the hotel has only recently started doing all inclusive, and that most of it's guests were half board, they struggled to know how to deal with the all inclusive guests. I've stayed at a similar hotel in Greece and the staff constantly brought us drinks, ice creams, cold flannels etc, but here we were largely ignored and had to hunt down a waitress to get a top up of poor quality pop or cheap and weak local beer and wine. This sounds like we didn't have a great time, which is far from true. The location was perfect and we enjoyed a day trip with Thomson to Rovinj which I would highly recommend, and also a walking tour of Pula from the hotel's entertainment staff. This trip was free save for the small cost of the local bus and the two hotel tour guides were very pleasant and knowledgeable. The hotel provides evening entertainment which was a bit hit and miss and had a "Eurovision" element to it, but a 5 piece male band singing in Croatian was suprisingly beautiful. We also enjoyed a couples massage at the spa which again I would highly recommend. If the hotel hires a few more staff (and gets a few of their existing staff to cheer up a bit) and realises that all inclusive guests are just as important as half board guests, albeit we have paid up front for drinks, this would be a 5 out of 5.
