“Great area and a lovely part of the world”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2011

This was our first trip to Croatia and we knew nothing about Istria, the region in which this complex is situated. Our trip was partly to attend a wedding and also as a holiday. It is a wonderful area with some spectacular scenery and crystal clear seas. We stayed in an 8 person villa with 2 bathrooms and 3 bedrooms, a fourth room doubled-up as a further sleeping/living area. At best this is adequate accommodation for only 6 people, and four would be preferable. The accommodation is definitely no more than 3 star, so correctly rated. Clean and in a wonderful location and extremely convenient for Pula town itself, as buses run frequently from just outside to complex gates. It has lots of facilities for families, divers and if you want a relaxing time. We got a deal on cost, and we would not have been happy to pay the going rate which seems extortionate given the basic nature of the villas. However we had a great time, loved the courteousness and friendliness of the Croatian people and will definitely go back, although maybe not to this particular complex.

We travelled from Stanstead to Pula and stayed here 3 nights/4 days and it was not long enough!!! It is located near a wooded area right next to the sea. It was hot enough to wear shorts and swim in the sea in October! Absolutely beautiful with beautiful scenery, good food, nice people and not too many English :-) Apartment had a nice balcony to eat breakfast looking at the sea. Nice hot shower and nice modern bathroom. The pub/restuarant near the bus stop was good value (you must try the croatian mixed grill and the calamari - not sure about the risotto which was a bit undercooked), nice beer and great deserts relaxing location : staff were so chilled did not even bother us unless we asked them for something.

Town is nice with nice harbour area and the Arena - we also ate in the forum area which was around £4 for calamari + sides (yes had it twice it was so good here) - drinks a bit more expensive in forum with coke same price as beer. Beers come in 1litre or 1/2 litre here so be careful lol.

We have been to plenty of places in europe and the world but this really was stunning - If you want a nice break away from the hassle of london/work/rat race etc where you can have a few drinks, sit by the sea, eat good food and see some stuff but in a place that has not yet been totally discovered, this is the place to go.

Coach goes from airport to hotel and back quit easily .........

We just returned from a 3 night stay at this resort last weekend and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. I had done some research prior to getting there so I was not expecting a 5 star hotel. However I did expect to find a place with clean bathrooms and a comfortable bed to sleep in. This hotel had that and more. There was a full sized refrigerator and a stove top so that we were able to bring food which cut down on the money we spent on food.

Our room was on the 1st floor and looked out over the water. There was also outdoor furniture for the balcony so we were also able to eat outside and enjoy watching the boats sailing on the water.

I believe the thing I liked most is the fact that you are able to use the facilities at all the hotels on the peninsula. So there is access to pools indoor and out, tennis basketball, squash, volleyball, soccer (football), mini golf and there are also trampolines and jumper castles for the kids. We also noticed a group that will take the children and keep them occupied for 2 hours at a time. There were so many things to do that we were not able to keep up.

There are restaurants that have all kinds of food. We ate out most of our stay and never had a bad meal. the prices were also very good. We spent about 12 euros per person at dinner and less at lunch.

Overall we had a wonderful time and we will go back this year.

We've just returned from a week's stay at Verudela Beach & Villa Resort and have to say we are so pleased we booked these apartments and not the Punta Verudela apartments 5 mins walk away. There is just no comparison, the Punta Verudela apartments looked like a run down prisoner of war camp, in need of some serious painting and they all looked over one-another, so very little privacy. They have been built so close together that there is an echo when you talk whilst walking between them. I would have cried if I had booked these. Whereas the Verudela Beach & Villa Apartment we stayed in was set in beautiful woodland in a block of 8 and it was very peaceful with great modern and clean self catering facilities (3 ring hob, new kitchen equipment and utensils and a family size fridge) the only downside was the lack of kettle and microwave, but to be honest we survived for a week without these. We had our bedding and towels changed halfway through the week, which was sufficient as I am all for being green and saving the environment and anyway, there was a spare set in the wardrobe should we have needed to change them more frequently. We even had our special request met of a first floor apartment with a sea view and it was wonderful to watch the boats sailing out to sea and to hear the waves crashing against the shore. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great the first half of the week and there was very little to do to entertain our 19month old in the rain. It may have been too early in the season, as most of the on-site facilities looked closed and the children's playground consisted of a couple of old run down swings, no slide or climbing frame. However, when the sun did shine we made the most of the swimming pools, which although were freezing, my daughter didn't seem bothered. We also took some beautiful and peaceful walks through the woodland surrounding the resort of Verudela and there is access to some beautiful secluded coves but beware the beaches are very stony.

Other things to note are that the on-site supermarket was overpriced and understocked. They never seemed to have much bread left and the fruit and veg had seen better days, but it was fine to get milk and ice-creams from. We did our main shop in Pula, 20 mins on the bus away. The other thing to watch out for is the cost of the taxi to and from the airport -either bargain hard or insist the meter is used. We were quoted 200 Kuna from the airport, but after some firm conversation the meter was put on and it only came to 135Kuna on the meter! And then for some reason, when we booked a taxi for our return it cost 180Kuna, because the taxis start charging from their office to where they pick you up from and then your journey, which is scandalous!

Pula and the peninsula of Veruldela just outside it though are really lovely places to stay for a short trip I would say. I would go back, but I dread to think what it is like in peak season when the children are off school and poolside entertainment kicks in, not my thing I'm afraid but I bet the weather it better.

  • Liked — quite, modern, clean
  • Disliked — the concrete steps up were dangerous for a your toddler to climb and the balcony railings had quite large gaps in them which a baby or small toddler could have fallen through
