Our stay was very pleasant until we went for our New Years Eve dinner which was lacking in every aspect. i.e no warmth, taste or ambiance. We were seated with another couple at the entrance, which was totally devoid of any warmth. When we asked to be relocated, we were advised that the restaurant was fully booked for the evening . Perhaps there was a mystery crowd showing up later, but we did not wait to for their arrival !!! Reception had advised at the time of booking to come no later than 8.00pm in order to enjoy the festive dinner and evening. Well, we arrived at 8.00pm as advised and by 9.30pm we were finished and done with the five course meal which was one of the fastest we have been served. The food and service were average. The ambiance in our section of the restaurant was non existent with just one other couple who together with us left at around 9.30pm . We did not even stay to finish our rather expensive bottle of wine.

The breakfast at the hotel is worthy of 6* status, a cornucopia of different dishes and side dishes, rounded off by excellent coffee and other beverages. The amenities (pools, spas, exercise rooms, games rooms) are clean and well equipped and and their staff unobtrusive and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and the AC efficient and almost soundless. The restaurants around the site were varied and had good menus, if sometimes the dishes were a little pricey. We were glad we were in the Park Plaza Histria and not the other Park Plaza next door, because their pools were always crowded and they charged for loungers!
The surrounding Istrian countryside is beautiful and many of the little hilltop or waterside towns of the peninsula are really worth a visit. There are also many other interesting sites to see, both historical (e.g. Roman and medieval buildings) or geographical (caves, canals) to visit.on the peninsula. The fresh sea bass or snapper available in most local restaurants is a delicate joy to eat, especially if accompanied by an excellent Istrian wine.

I visited with a friend at the end of Sept, going into October. We had a lovely time, we ccould not fault the hotel or staff. However, if you are looking to do activities i.e. water sports this is not the time of year to go as most of these things have closed down for the season.
We had a lovely time chilling out and eating. Not much night life but we were happy with as we wanted a quiet week.
Would recommend this and would definitely return.

On the whole very positive.It is a large hotel with all the challenges this brings so we felt it was difficult for it to have an identity.Who was it attracting and concentrating on? The coach trips,young families, young couples or middle aged?
As it was the end of season things were looking a bit tired and needed sprucing up.
