    "A" for effort

    by

    As the title says, the Hotel Pula gets an 'a' for effort, but has a LONG way to go before it can compete with a professional beach hotel/resort.

    Examples:
    -Housekeeping (room cleaning) begins around 8:30 am - when a maid just walks in without knocking, and no opportunity to hang a Do Not Disturb sign because there isn't one!

    -Dinner is a buffet disaster. From the land which produced Lidia Bastianich (one of the best Italian/Medit. chefs worldwide), the food at Hotel Pula is not worth waiting on line for.

    On the other hand, the staff is trying and is friendly despite the at-times-too-bureaucratic ways reminiscent of the old Tito days.

    Unique Quality: Most rooms have a seaside view and a small terrace, and the rooms are air-conditioned, so you can luxuriate in the room all morning...oh, wait...housekeeping walks in unannounced at 8:30am.

    Directions: South of the city center in the Veruda area. With baggage you need a taxi, but it's a very nice 25-minute or so walk into the center.
