Ribarska Koliba Resort

Reviewed 29 May 2014

Staff are professional, efficient and helpful. Ambience of the hotel and restaurant are nice.

We discovered the shutter was not working in the bedroom late in the evening. Once we contacted the staff at reception, a tall staff from restaurant came to help us to fix it.

However, the mirror in the bathroom was mounted up in a position only for man of 2 M only. It is not user friendly for person with small physical feature.

Room Tip: Choose the one with seaview

This hotel is out of town a little so you do need a vehicle. We occupied the penthouse apartment and were thrilled upon arrival. The beds were comfortable, the apartment clean and had everything we needed in it. The lift was an excellent help as my youngest daughter is in a wheelchair. However, she could only get around the first floor of the penthouse, which was fine. The staff are what make this place a standout. They could not have been more helpful and kind. The food was exceptional and the view and outlook, magnificent. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to others, especially families.

Room Tip: The penthouse if it's in your budget

We had a really nice stay here. We had one of the lower priced appartments and we feared that it would not have a real balcony because the description was not really clear, but the balcony was hugh, and even if the view was to the other building, very nice.
We stayed in the off-season, so it was usually very quite at the beautiful pool. The Spa area was small, but very nice, too. But it is also only an about 10 min walk to the nearby stony beaches.
The roof terrace of the restaurant is nice to take some coffee and cake in the afternoon (with normal prices).
Being not a big hotel and located directly at the marina, creates the special atmosphere.

Ribarska is a little tucked away about a 40 minute walk from Pula town centre but its a great place to stay.
The rooms are big and clean with huge balconies.
The pool is a decent size overlooking the harbour, you have sauna and steam room facilities plus a great roof top bar and seafood restaurant to choose from.
The staff are extremely friendly and would recommend this for couples. Not a kids place.
Plus it's extremely chilled out which just adds a great vibe.

Room Tip: Try to get a corner room. The balcony is massive and a really good view across the harbour.

Could have jumped in the Adriatic from balcony. Quiet location, only sail boats in yacht harbour at night. Very helpful & friendly staff. Spacious & clean rooms, restaurant on site. Only a short walk from arena & down twon, only a short drive to Rovinj.

The only unfortunate thing is that we were unable to experience it during the high season - it was too cold to lounge around by the pool.

We stayed in a ground-floor 1 bedroom apartment in the main building - 2 adults and 2 kids in a hideaway bed. The beds were comfortable and there was loads of closet and drawer space. The kitchenette was adequate for our needs, and having a fridge and hot water pot was helpful. The place is wonderfully maintained and clean. Beds were made every day, and towels exchanged as needed. Service was excellent and responsive. Parking was convenient, and the location is great to get to beaches or downtown Pula. It's also convenient to the motorway to explore Istra. I can't recommend this little place enough.

The apartment is located in Verudela, which is about 3km from Pula. The
bus stop to Pula is nearby and supermarket is in the Park Plaza Hotel.
Our apartment was very comfortable and had a view of Marina from the enclosed terrace. The modern furnishings and flat screen TV was welcome. The kitchenette was small but fully equipped. The staff was friendly and accomodating. Free WiFi and parking was included.
The beach is about 5min. walk, but the swiming pool is just great.
Overall, good value for the money.

Room Tip: Marina/sea view.
