We scheduled the Valamar at the end of our tour of central Europe so we would have time to decompress and relax. This is a great place to do just that!
The staff is the crowning jewel of this hotel...maybe even more so than the amazing location on the sea. The front desk staff made sure we were comfortable and were exceptionally knowledgeable on sites to see and directions to get there. Despite a snafu with our room, they did there best to make it up to us. We really appreciated that they made phone calls for us to place reservations.
The wait staff was gracious and attentive. I was impressed that they remembered our room number!
This is a great location on a beautiful coast. Yes, it's touristy and purpose built, but in a nice way. I've never seen a sea so clear and nice to swim in. There is a nice restaurant in the hotel and along the coast, which is a charming winding car-free path along the beach. We were a family of 4 and had a great experience. Free Wi-Fi in lobby and near pool too!
Even before we arrived we already had a positive experience from the hotel. We e mailed them prior to our stay to ask about transport links from Pula airport and they arranged a Taxi for us from the airport (they did tell us how to get there via Public Transport we just opted for the taxi route to the hotel). Our room was lovely, great size and cleaned very regularly with facilities like a Safe and Room Service very easy to use. Food was lovely and the staff were always helpful and very polite. We used the Hospitality service to get advice on some trips which was great, we booked a boat trip through them which was amazing! It was my partners birthday while we were there which I hadn't mentioned but they turned up on the day of his birthday with a bottle of fizz and a note wishing him Happy Birthday which was a lovely touch! The pool was lovely and the location near the beach and a local supermarket was perfect. Would definately recommend to a friend and visit again.
Once a quiet fishing village, Rabac has developed into a popular seaside resort with modern hotels and apartments, plus some decent seafood taverns. Backed by hills, it looks onto a cove with a pleasant pebble beach. Each summer, Girandella beach hosts house and techno music festivals. It’s a 15-minute walk north of Rabac. Four kilometres inland lies hilltop Labin, a former mining town of old stone cottages, accessible by footpath.
