Park Plaza Histria Pula
Ranked #2 of 31 Hotels in Pula
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 9, 2014

I have just spent 11 days here and it is fantastic.

Very new and modern, spacious with great sunbed area on the deck and a better one around the pool below with great sea views, thanks to glass panelling and not a brick wall, although I wished they enforced their "no use for 30 minute" sunbed policy, there are some very selfish guests there. The staff around the pool are very good, especially Ila, the breakfast is very good too with all the choices you would expect inc an egg chef and lots of fruit and local cakes etc
Dario and Antonio give really good guest tours and trips and are a bonus to the hotel, the rooms are modern and large and the walk in shower has the 6 nozzles that shoot you with water, as well as the normal shower head.
The resort is huge, lots of places to walk too, a supermarket within a 3 minute walk, 2 ice cream parlours/cafe's and places to eat and drink with in a 8 minute walk, if like us you are not all inclusive, the "day and night" bar by the bus stop was our favourite and you should go to the busstop (8 minute walk) and get the 3a bus into town and the 2A bus back, it is only 11 kuna's (about £1)
The hotel bar is busy but as the lobby is so huge, it feels very spread out and non conducive to meeting others, lots of people sitting in their couples, but the top deck has lots of comfortable seating for sitting around on if you do not want to lye on a sunbed all day. A beer was £2, very tasty local beers and a superb price.

This is the best hotel I have stayed in and I would recommend it to all

Michael

Room Tip: All rooms are probably good but the sea views are better

This is a stylish hotel that is outside of Pula, in a gated part of the peninsula where most of Pula's nice hotels seem to be located. Rooms are very nice with a balcony and great view. I was impressed with the stylish design of the room. We found it very comfortable.
At night, do not expect an intimate lounge area in the hotel lobby. I was stunned by the number of guests who were sitting around at night enjoying cocktails and listening to loud, live music. It was noisy there but fortunately, very quiet in our room.
Hotel was prepared to serve large crowds at breakfast. Many people filled the dining hall, and the staff kept the buffets well stocked. Food was fine and coffee was delicious. Didn't know about the entertainment staff, but we were just there for an overnight.

I have just enjoyed a holiday in Pula and wanted to say a special thank you to one of the loveliest bar tenders I have ever met. Her name is Greta and she works at the champagne bar. My first visit to the bar she was incredibly welcoming and friendly and made me feel very comfortable. She has excellent customer service skills and is very hard working. I also had the opportunity to speak to her about the wines available and her knowledge was fantastic and I learnt a few things about local grapes and good wine and champagne. I had such a lovely time at the bar I returned again on my last day in Pula and once again Greta delivered a first class service. She really is an asset to the bar and I do hope that she is recognised for her hard work.

Just got back from a lovely week at the Park Plaza Histria, it is a lovely hotel, it is very trendy looking hotel, there are only a couple of things that spoil it a little bit, the only bar in the large lobby needs to get better staff, the service can be dreadful you can be waiting ages to get served, and on couple of occasions two members of staff (two older ladies) actually argued in front of customers !!!, also it is quite away out of the centre no other bars in the area, so bus ride or taxi, but would like to add the two lovely ladies around the pool bar Ana and Ila are absolutely fabulous maybe they need to train the other members of staff !!! Overall though it is a lovely hotel.

As soon as I walked into the reception, I knew it would be my kind of place! Very contemporary and absolutely spotless. The Entertainment staff, Antonio and Dario were really really helpful, informative and hosted bike rides, walks and boat trips to a small island - all really good fun. Dragun (not sure if I spelt that right) could not be more helpful, whether organising taxi's, hire cars etc - really went that extra mile to help.
Room was lovely (805) with gorgeous harbour view - only negative was the restaurant on the other side of the harbour was really loud until about 3am - but that's not the hotels fault!
It was quiet when we were there, maybe a little too quiet as the champagne bar had no more than a couple of people there and I think shut early a few nights because of this. The main reception is lovely but as the seating area is so spread out, it lacked a little atmosphere but again this could be the time of year we went. The male singers were fantastic - however, the guy on the keyboard had most people falling asleep, he managed to turn a great song into a derge (sorry!). Pool area was really nice and again being pedantic the whole "leaving the towels on the bed for hours" really bugs me. Think there should be a policy if beds with towels are unattended after half hour, the towels are removed. I saw lots of beds with towels on all day not being used....really inconsiderate. The shopping mall and restaurants within the hotel were really nice. Tennis and football on site which was great. Room service - I asked for a bowl of ice and it was brought to the room within minutes. Breakfast in my opinion was faultless - I can't bear the usual feeding frenzy and greed of some people but the choice of food was really good. Get there early to have a more relaxing brekkie!! Bus stop outside the complex takes you to Pula where you can then get great coaches to Porac, Ravin etc - recommended. Pula is OK, the amphitheatre is definitely worth a visit as is the castle and archways etc - but prettier towns are a coach ride away. Definitely stay at this hotel again - apart from the minor niggles, it was a fabulous hotel.

Room Tip: 805 was opposite the harbour which was stunning but there was a lot of party noise from the restaura...

The friendly and efficient staff make this hotel.
The hotel itself is situated a beautiful part of the Istrian coast and has all the facilities that you would expect from a hotel of this standard.
The added bonus, however, is the staff who really go out of their way to make sure that you have an enjoyable and relaxing stay.
All staff that we encountered from front desk, through to pool, bar, yacht club, restaurant & housekeeping were, without exception, pleasant, polite & efficient.
It was a pleasure to stay in such a well run hotel and I would have no hesitant in recommending this hotel as a base for touring this part of Croatia.
The only slight negative was the lack of atmosphere in the bar area whilst we were there at the end of May but I see that this may improve as the Luna bar will be open as we move into high season.
