Stayed here for two nights this May and was very pleasantly surprised with the tasteful modern design and outstanding cleanliness of pool view room, the view from the first floor shoots across the pool/lounge area of the neatly kept garden over to the nearby meadows, vineyards and typical Istrian forrest.. just stunning and worth staring at it through the window...

We had a great evening here again with our Croatian friends. This restaurant is always consistently good. The food is very well cooked. Great wine. The hosts & staff are excellent. They care about their standards being high. Will be back.

We stayed here for the first 2 nights of our trip in Croatia, having landed at Pula airport. The main positives are: - Nice food! The dinner is lovely (apparently it has an excellent reputation locally so many people book, not just guests), and the breakfast (continental) has a good selection too. - Very close to Trapan winery - about...

A party of six on a boat charter holiday. The boat owner recommended the restaurant and arranged booking and taxi. A bit of a drive from the Veruda marina. There was a party going on and the music was a bit loud for me but others liked it. We had really good fish, starters and mains. I finished with ice...

The hotel has 4 stars and the small swimming pool. The food is excellent but the service could improve. Meaning at the breakfast you have to wait that they bring additional food because they have a lack of stuff. In the middle of August, the main season there was only one waiter and of course it is impossibile to serve...

We had a very pleasant stay here. Very modern and luxury rooms. Nice pool and very friendly staff. Good breakfast too. You need a car to visit Medulin or Pula (10 -15 minutes drive). The shower is in the bathtub, that's not very handy, you have to climb in. Furthermore; a separate terrace for hotel guests would have been great....

While on holiday in Sisan, we had lunch or dinner in this restaurant almost every day. Service sometimes a bit shaky, but Always very friendly. And some lovely dishes you want to come back for: carpaccio (prepared with eye for detail), black risotto, spaghetti with seafood (spicy), calamares for the kids ... We hope to return next summer.

Travelled about Europe for six weeks in August to September of this year staying at many hotels and found the Hotel Velanera to be the one we enjoyed and preferred the most.
