Unfortunately they lost our passport and we had to spent one day at the police station to get the necessary papers to be able to leave the country.

Well placed for travelling around - a short bus ride to Pula(bus at end of road).and then buses round the area (to Rovinj, Fazana, Premantura, Vodjnan, labin etc). For local and suburban services buy a travel card (35 kuna) then reductions on every journey (6 kuna instead of 11 for zone 1) - search Pulapromet for details.

Need to be fit as up and down round site and a 5 minute walk to reception. Expensive supermarket on site but others in local area within 15 minute walk (or bus to Pula!)

stayed before in Horizont but by booking an Apartment D with sea view was worth extra monies - panorama of bay where we watched electrical storms one night but more regularly just enjoyed sweep of sea and sunsets! Toilet rolls and no renewal of towels but more than made up for by the view and having breakfasty on large balcony.

Apartment comfortable but have to pay for ac - we used the close the curtains in day open windows in evening to keep apartment cool.

Kitchen has hot plates and coffee maker - no microwave or kettle - but it was adequately supplied and made tea by boiling water in pan!

Beach in front of hotel was rocky but still enjoyed swimming there.Views make up for rockier coastline. Beach shoes recommended as you are otherwise forever dancing on rocks. But lovely beaches (still rocky but more gentle) just a bus ride -26 via premantura - away at Kamenjak, which is highly recommended. Safari Bar- but note 4 km walk there and back unless you hire bike - highly recommended on end of Kamenjak peninsula.

Room Tip: Sea views good!!

We spend 13 nights at Splendid Resort in late juli and start august in a type M apartment, First, the apartment was perfect. About 85 squaremeters and two bathrooms. Big fridge but sparse kitchen equipment. No toaster or oven or even microwave. Fantastic view from both the bedrooms overlooking the bay just south of Pula. And a very big balcony as well. All the furniture was very Ikea like, but it was new and functional. But the beds was very hard so beware of sore backs.
The Pool area was way to crowded and it was very small, but it didn't matter to us because we prefered the coast anyway. I mean who would like to pay around 10 euro each day for at sunbed and listen to very loud polka (read:discomusic), when you could have your own private rock just beside the most beautiful crystal clear water and listen to the waves hitting the rocks.
The whole area are very hilly, så if you have trouble with steps or generally are in a physically bad shape don't even think about staying here. We had over 200 steps from the pool area to our apartment.
You have to drive to everything, both shopping and dining. Yes they do have a local supermarket and some places to eat but believe me, you don't want to spend your kuna there because they are overpriced and the portions doesn't match what you can get outside the resort. The are some great restaurants out there where you can fiil your stomach for a very little amount of money. So if you don't mind walking a lot of steps or pay for basically everything beside the air, this place could work for you.

However, we are terribly sorry to hear that you found the bed a little bit to hard. We hope that this inconviniente won't prevent you and your family to stay at the Resort Splendid in the future.

The apartement was very nice and fresh. It had new utensils in the kitchen area (not to many). Beds was very hard to sleep in. The AC (have to pay extra) was very good, by mistake we made a fridge of the place one day returning from the rocky beach. Make sure you book the new apartments as there are some in very bad shape. Tv had all you could wish for.

The balconys was large but not very private as the neigburs felt close. Do not pay for sea view as we did for glimps beside a tree. Make sure you are not on ground floor.

The beach is not for small children as it is only rocks and gets deep fast. Water is beautiful. Much better to use the sea comparde to the undersized pool.

Restaurants are ok and very cheap, use the one to the left by the sea. There are still some old Tito styled ugly concrete buildings that look very sad in very bad shape, they should get rid ot those as it effects the feeling of the beautiful coast line.

The supermarket was ok. a bit more expensive but we never went to Lidel in town.

The local bus is a 5 minute walk from reception, it is a cheap and efficent way to get to the old town of Pula.

We had some great days swimming and sightseeing in Pula
