The Rubin sits amongst three valamar hotels in Porec and it’s a bit like the poor relation. Plastic sunbeds vs fabric ones, tired hotel rooms, and no nice pool areas to enjoy the evenings. You’re free to move between hotels so this wasn’t a massive issue, but it would be nice to have some benefits on site.
We paid extra for a sea view and did have a lovely view, but I’ve read reviews that say not all superior rooms are as good.
We went half board and the buffet is extensive but after five nights very much the same at breakfast and dinner. There is a beautiful outside terrace and it’s worth getting there before 7 to grab a table.
Drinks and food are expensive in all three hotels but we just ordered accordling.
If i returned to porec I wouldn’t choose this hotel, I think there better.
