Early start meant our room wasn't available until late afternoon. We were allocated a room in one of the bungalows out of the main block which was actually quite dark, close to a stream with stagnant water. However, this room was intended for another party so we were moved to the main complex with a lovely sea view.
Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The food was good, breakfast a little bland, (they could do with fresh fruit rather than the ubiquitous tinned peaches, pears and prunes every morning) and the coffee isn't great (ask for expresso or cappuccino). lunch and dinner portions were perfectly adequate and the restaurant staff worked like Trojans, indicating that more staff are needed, particular in view of the fact that it's waiter service.
Finally, the entertainment committee worked hard, putting on a show every evening and entertained both adults and children alike which was great fun.
A thoroughly relaxing holiday and although the location is a little remote, you can easily take a bus to Pula (stops outside the hotel) and costs €1.00 and if you are feeling adventurous, walk to the main road and take a bus to Cagliari which takes about one hour and costs €4.00, return €3.50 for a pre-paid ticket.
Yes, the hotel needs some renovation and more staff, particularly during summer months, but the staff were friendly and accommodating and provided help whenever possible.
