I'll take example on another review and start with the positive points: the pool and access to the beach from this hotel were great! Unfortunately as we were there for 2 of the worst day of weather in September it really was of no use to us! This being said, it did seem beautiful. The other thing I can mention is that despite all the flaws with the room, it was clean, I must say.
Now for the rest, the first thing that threw us off is that when we checked in we were asked to leave our passports for check-in. What was not clear to us at the time, is that our passports were going to be held as leverage to ensure we would pay for our stay! In all our travels, we had never seen this!!! The person assured us that this was a common practice in Croatia. Just as a side note, it is the only hotel during our 14 day stay that asked us to do this. In order to retrieve our passports we had to pay upfront for the room, which we did. Then there was the room... Our reservation stated we were only 2 but we were placed in a room with 3 beds, which means our already small room, was made considerable smaller! The room smelled musty upon our arrival. As I mentioned, it was clean, it just smelled musty and old. I can live with old decor and antiquated surroundings, but the smell killed me! We luckily only stayed two nights. We made sure we spent as little time in the room as possible and that pretty much helped us enjoy our stay in Pula.
