Just returned from a lovely week here. Lovely apartment on the ground floor very near the pool. Housekeeping came every day with towels and bin emptying. Arrived at 10am and had to wait until 2pm but not a problem as we could store our luggage and explore the complex. Reception staff were very helpful and friendly. Other reviews mentioned queuing for loungers but we never saw any of this and also got loungers together every time we went to the pool. We ate at the yacht club and the Olive restaurant takeaway and enjoyed these. Other nights we got the bus to the old town and ate there as there was more choice. Would recommend this hotel to others as we did think the accommodation was of a high standard and located only a short bus ride from the old town.
We absolutely loved this resort. After 2 years without a holiday this was just lovely! The transfer from the airport was just 20 minutes and we had a warm welcome at reception. We were whizzed to our 1 bed premium apartment by a golf buggy which our girls (13 and 10) thought was fab. The lovely staff had seemingly given us an upgrade as we had a lovely sea view and our apartment was in the best location minutes from both the pool and the beach. We were greeted in our room with ruse petals on our bed and a lovely selection of biscuits which was a lovely surprise. Within half an hour of checking in we were snorkelling in the beautiful crystal clear waters in the nearby beach. It was a fantastic start to a brilliant weeks holiday. We found the staff to be very warm and friendly and super helpful . They kindly printed out all our Covid documentation needed for our return journey snd sent a buggy to pick up all our luggage on our last day. Nothing was too much trouble! A big thank you thank the whole team. The apartment was great, the view lovely, lots of space outside and super comfy enormous bed in the bedroom. The girls slept pretty well on the sofa bed and we had new towels and bins replaced every day. We even had our bedding changed one day. One piece of feedback was that the lighting in the bathroom was quite dark and we had no mirror in our bedroom but that was it! We were half board and enjoyed a lovely breakfast each morning after swimming a mile each day in the pool. Yes we had to reserve our beds, but it was a simple 15 min wait to get into the pool and secure a bed ( no charge) . We had the pool to ourselves for the swim at 9am - bonus! Dinner in the evening was good, quite varied and excellent service by the waiters bringing us our drinks. Overall location was superb! We fully intended to hire a car and explore the region but to be honest we just stayed put. The resort had everything you need and the beaches were just lovely. We visited the nearest Hawaii beach for some inflatable fun and ti hire a pedalo for the kids which they loved! We also went to the beach further down and did some fun cliff jumping ( not me - too much of a scaredy-cat ) . There was an amazing bar overlooking the sea near the cliff jumping beach - we went there to watch the sunset and it was just amazing! We also visited the aquarium one evening - recommend avoiding the crowds and going at 8pm. We had the place to ourselves! We took a taxi to pula one day and it was worth visiting the amphitheatre. Generally speaking we had a great family holiday. The kids loved all the outdoor activities including water polo and kids games by the pool. The beer was great ! Supermarket on the resort was pretty reasonable . It felt fairly COVID safe with mask wearing and social distancing . We did use a lot of antibacterial gel during the buffet just because all the serving spoons were being shared by everyone . However that said we returned home to the UK without issue. Doing all the paperwork snd getting all the tests done was a bit stressful but it was so worth it to be able to get away ! You could even get your antigen tests done in the resort for 1100 kuna which was cheaper than the ones we’d brought with us! Thank you to all staff at Verudela Park Plaza - we had a great holiday!!…
We were very satisfied. It was our first vacation with our new baby and we found everything we needed. In my opinion the hotel is good for all different people - young people, families, retired, everyone can find something.
super for 4 days citybreak just to remember old good times and see how beautifuly this region develop during last 25y. Every day we have got 2-3 sports activities (tenis, bowling, runing, volley, snorking, etc) then time to rest (even sleep during day at the swiming pool), perfect view for sailing regatta, have a quite romantic walk, fine dinner in 4 bars, space to have fun, etc. and all for 4 couples.
If you are looking for a place to stay in Croatia look no further this is if value for money location and the hospitality. The airport is only a short drive away also the local shopping mall is also a short drive or bus and or taxi ride away.
