Sehr sauberes und schönes Apartment
"Pool und Strand in nur wenigen Metern erreichbar. Leider ist der Strand kein richtiger Strand. Es ist scheinbar ein künstlich aufgeschütteter Sand und deshalb sehr hart und nicht zum liegen geeignet. Von schwimmen ist nicht zu denken, da muss man zunächst einmal viele Meter weit hinein gehen…. Jedoch ..."

Rab Hotel Reviews

Valamar Carolina Hotel & Villas
Expedia Verified Review
5 / 5 Excellent
Unser Urlaub war wirklich sehr schön, vorallem fanden wir das Personal im Hotel unfassbar nett. Ob es Renato am Empfang war oder Ivan, Andro, Petar, David, Bruno, Benjamin und und und von der Küche sowie dem Restaurant. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und können die Reise nach Kroatien nur empfehlen. Das Hotel ist großzügig ausgestattet und lässt daher keine offenen Punkte übrig. Die Reise nach Kroatien war allgemein sehr abwechslungsreich, da es eigentlich immer irgendeine Möglichkeit der Unterhaltung gab. Z.B. Gab es eine Schiffstour, welche am Hotel mit angeboten wurde. Diese ist auch nur zu empfehlen. Wir wünschen allen Mitarbeitern des Personals eine gute Zeit und freuen uns, wieder bei Ihnen Urlaub zu machen. Bitte bleiben Sie alle wie Sie sind. Und vorallem bleiben Sie gesund!
