If you're attending a conference at Bernardin, be sure to book this hotel. It's the cheapest one of the 3 Bernardin hotels and the quality is similar to the 2 more expensive hotels. The breakfast is served in the nearby hotel Histrion where you can also use the pool.
All in all a solid hotel. What it lacks is free wi-fi :(
You can buy wi-fi access but for the price you're paying for the room free wi-fi would be appropriate.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the renowated part of the hotel

Vile Park must be the most unfortunately named hotel for the English market. But it is no Faulty Towers. The staff is excellent and really helpful. Three star rating i Slovenia means exactly that: A basic hotel room with bathroom and usually balcony or terrace. There is no air conditioning in the rooms (which means it can get very hot in a heat wave) and no minibar (you can get drinks for takeaway from the various bars and restaurants and shops until midnight) and there is Wifi in the rooms now, at least in the central block, where I stayed. If you don't like heat, request a room facing inland, rather than towards the beach or the church, they are also quieter in the evening.

Vile Park markets itself as a hotel for families and pets, especially dogs, so expect noise in the communal areas and apparently the dog rooms are the older ones in the complex, so beware - while I enjoyed the four footed company in the paved area, their left overs near the grassy bits (not part of the hotel, so nobody's fault except the untidy owners) were less inviting.

It otherwise offers all the facilities of the Four star hotel Histrion across the road. In fact, the two share most of the facilities, incl. the food and the wellness park, beach and sea water indoor swimming pools.

The conference facilities are are all in the Histrion and are what you expect from such facilities. well appointed with technical equipment and very helpful staff, who help with the rare technical problems. Their receptions are worthwhile attending, the food is excellent and they are quite the attentive hosts.

A word about the 'beaches' at Piran/Portoroz: Do not expect sand. These are rocky beaches and you are likely to spread your towel on concrete rafts, a bit unusual at first, but it is more than made up for by the underwater wildlife. Bring snorkels and flippers!

Room Tip: As I said before, if you don't like the heat, ask for a room facing inland, which are also quiet...

I have been at the Vile park Portoroz - Nympha apartments this august
I had a week stay with my family and ...a small dog... the smallest one in the world a 2 kg chihuahua . On the beginning I tried to book HISTRION HOTEL but they did not accept animal ...so we asked for Vile Barka and they refused to accept the small dog the chihuahua - finally in order to stay in the Bernardin Village I was obliged to accept two rooms at Vile Park . Upon the check in I was allocated at Nympha apartments.
The rooms were awful...no air conditioning - and were overexposed to the sun all day long. The temperature was unbelievably hot with old mattresses.
The rooms had carpet on the floor . This is quite an unusual fact at a seaside hotel. So the rooms had a bad smell of humidity all day.
It was also impossible to sleep at night since one of the two rooms was located just on the street and people drinking at bar talked loud all night long .
Motorcycles which supposedly were not allowed to enter the village - rushed along the street at all time - during the night too .
For the money we paid we had the worst hotel experience of our life.
I don't understand why, despite al the problems the hotel have, they don't accept small dogs Furthermore we saw cats all over the place and found found cats' [--] on the stairs of the apartments....
There was no wi fi- in the Vile Park area and we were offered to go to Hotel Histrion where there were 3 PC in the lobby. It was almost impossible to have a look to my e. mail for job purposes , since kids, who were not allowed to use the PC, were playng in internet all the day long.
The seaside and the overall environment at Bernardin Village is nice, food is acceptable, the strand is Ok but the whole hotel services are going down, the staff is not very friendly indeed.
We can conclude that there is no value for money and the whole facilities must be improved a lot.

Stayed here for three nights.
- the bathroom was old and needed reconstruction
- no minibar / no welcome water (and food & drink is not easy to get nearby at night)
- no internet!!?? (only available in another hotel lobby)
- room / furniture old
- no elevator (I need to carry my language to 2nd floor)

At least the ambient is nice. Try to get a room with a church view and balcony.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a church view and balcony.

We booked a family room and got 2 double rooms with a connecting door: one room with a balcony and the other without.

This stay was a good value, although we didn't have a sea view (should have cost more) and this hotel does not have an aircondition. Since we had always over 34 degrees, it was very hot and humid in the rooms.

The breakfast and the dinner were very nice, although the staffs were stressed and not very friendly. As a guests of Hotel Vile Park, you can eat at the restaurant in the Hotel Histrion in the same hotel complex, which is only 2 min. walking.

This hotel has an aquapark named Laguna with thermal water. Several jacuzzies, 3 baby waterslides and 1 waterslide, and several pools. You can also try diving, pedal boat and speedboat at the marine center in the hotel. You can book excursions at the travel agency situated close to the front desk of the hotel.

Next time we will stay at this hotel again, but we should not forget to take a fan with us.
