When it comes to leisurely holidays and pleasant views, the Park Plaza Belvedere Medulin has it made. It’s hidden on the Istrian peninsula on Croatia’s northern Adriatic coast, a destination with an unspoilt coastline, charming villages and rustic fare. In the morning, admire views over breakfast at the hotel’s main restaurant, where a buffet of local Istrian dishes is also served at dinner.
The hotel is a good pick for sports lovers -- the region has built up a strong reputation among professional athletes and was even used as a training ground for the 2012 Olympics. The resort's own extensive sports facilities include six FIFA-sized football pitches, clay tennis courts (April-September), a heated indoor pool and a specialised gym for weightlifting. The on-site wellness centre has a steam room, a Finnish sauna and spa treatments. Guests can also go cycling in the surrounding countryside (secure bike storage is available on site).
For the less energetic, there’s a daily programme of entertainment or guests can simply laze by the two saltwater outdoor pools or on the pebble beach, which is looked after by lifeguards and offers Wi-Fi, showers and stairs leading into the sea, as well as the usual sun loungers and parasols to hire. Just around the bay, you'll find a kilometre of pristine sands at Bijeca Beach, one of the only golden beaches in the area and considered the region's "most child-friendly" by The Independent. For more secluded bathing, carry on along the coast to the untouched rocky bays in the Kamenjak National Park (extra charge), 30 minutes’ drive away.
The property was newly renovated in 2014, and the air-conditioned guestrooms feel fresh and modern. Wi-Fi is free. Superior Rooms provide more space. Higher room categories offer sea views through floor-to-ceiling windows (some with balconies).
Nearby attractions include the former fishing village of Medulin, just 20 minutes’ walk from the resort, and historic Pula, which is a 15-minute drive north. Described by Lonely Planet as "a standout among Croatia’s larger cities", Pula is home to numerous Roman archaeological sites, including a first-century amphitheatre -- the 6th largest remaining in the world.
