This was not the hotel we expected. The rooms are not too large and the carpets are dirty and the AC does not work real well. The pool closes at 7 p.m. which is not ideal for guests. The staff is not real helpful. When I compare it against the other hotels we stayed at in Croatia and Slovenia this... More

We spent 3 nights in the last week of August. The only downside to this hotel is that it is obviously jam-packed at this time of year, the pool area being rather crowded and the hotel can charge whatever it wants and the rates were far too high for the minimalist "romantic" rooms overlooking the pool (though they come with...

The hotel is in Brulo outside of Porec with about a ten minute walk into porec, really ideally located. The pool area is lovely surrounded by trees but onlooking the sea. The choice of food was really good, lots of fish, meat, salad etc i think most people would find something they would like and it was all fresh and... More

Another visit to Croatia (Istra) - this time it was just for the week-end. We found this hotel deal on the internet. It funny that one can not rely on star ratings of hotels...

I just spent 4 days at Valamar Rubin. Despite being a bit old, the resort is perfectly located, 10 min walking from the city center and a stone's throw away from the sea. Spaces are wide and bright. Food was not the best, but was abundant. Room was old furnished and a bit small but enough for few days. Swimming... More

We were moved here by Valamar with no explanation , but made the most of it. The hotel is a good 20-30 mins walk into Porec centre or you can get the train from the seafront near by. The Rubin is nicely turned out and all the staff friendly and helpful. We had a sea view room which had a... More

I spent four days in this hotel, having a conference organized in other hotels that are part of Valamar property. It seems very nice for 3* category, but a service in lobby cafe hasn't been friendly upon our arrival. Half-board food was excellent in very pleasant restaurants. The only thing missing was the cold and moldy room in the ground... More

This was my 2nd stay at Valamar Rubin, and I was slightly dissapointed.

We just returned from a two-night stay at the Valamar Rubin as part of an Istrian coast sojourn and if I have to sum up this property in a word it would be 'passable'. It has good points; the location is excellent, only a short stroll along the seaside to Poreč town. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The buffet... More
