“villas rubin, rovinj”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Stayed for two days with boyfriend, postseason, included breakfast and dinner.

location is really great, wonderfull bay, just a bit outside the city (and I consider Rovinj to be one of the most beautifull little towns ever), did not take a swiim, just sunbath, so don't know whats the sea entrance like.

accomodation is in rooms or bungalows, we took bungalow. great size, nice terrace, full equipment, but pretty old and shabby. lousy mattreasess, did not get any sleep, no air conditioning, which can be a problem in hot summer days. lousy toilet paper (smells awfull!). food in restaurant is basic, not so much choice, medium quality, for breakfast too many oliy and greasy food, if I had to eat there for couple of days, couldn't. swimpool area also old, needs renovation.

reception crew polite, but no genuine interes for guest. crew in restaurant really friendly.

Its one of those vacations that I want to forget asap. Rooms are old, mattresses not comfortable at all for sleep, staff don't care less for any complains, no matter how many times u go and repeat it to them, food is awful, worst food ever! All in all wouldn't recommend it even to my worst enemy.

Villa Rubins look like they haven't been touched since the 70s with cobwebs in the corners and an overgrown garden with unmown grass. Sports facilities are good apart from the swimming pool which is also shabby. Staff said what do you expect for the money but it is not particularly cheap.

It is a small vacation village with it's own rocky, gravelly and concrete beaches. We haven't stayed in their villas/apartments but we went to their beaches which we really liked - they were safe, clean and quite.

Be careful of apartments type A, there are no real photos on websides. In actual fact are apartments horrible, very very old, dirty and smelly. There are no windows downstairs, bathroom is terrible as well. They look like prison. We were very dissapointed

Our stay was organized by a company organizing handboll training for juniors. The facility is partly renovated so you must be aware of that. You will find a supermarket, ATM, one shop for swim articles, several restaurants, one swimming pool (salt water). The camping close by have a swimming pool with "ordinary" water. The food att the restaurant *(all inclusive part) was good in relation to the price. It is possible to rent jet ski and boat at a normal rate. A fan in the room would be appraciated.

First of all I’d like to take your attention that there’re 2 types of the accommodation: (1) the apartments & (2) rooms & it’s really a huge difference between them!!!..So, when you buy the place to stay pls pay your strong attention what you pay for. We paid for the apartments, but our tourist company booked for us the room so we had to stay there (“a nice surprise”..but, it’s another story); even when we offered to pay more for the apartments we were refused as all of them have been booked already. So, we had to stay in that room…the rooms are located in the 2floors houses not decorated for ages!!!..the room looks like a prison (I’m not joking & overstate!!)..it’s really like it is..we have looked at 4 rooms and finely stayed at “less prisoned one”..our room wasn’t cleaned for several days, the shower and toilet were become cluttered forever..can you imagine what kind of smell it was!! I don’t speak about condition system - of course, it wasn’t (as far we understand it wasn’t in apartments as well..it’s a general problem for hotels of Istria –no condition is almost anywhere).
We asked the receptionist to regulate the problems lots of times, wrote complaints – but all for nothing!! Only our insistence helped us when we told we wouldn’t go from the reception hall till the room would be cleaned!! And everything was like it is..no service at all!!! You should control everything!!..
Location: Villas Rubin is located several km by Rovinj center & it’s impossible to reach it by foot..so it’s better to have a car; or you can reach it by bus (which goes quite seldom - 2times a day; by boat or by taxi).

A few words about Croatians - it’s strange, but while reading reviews about Croatia we haven’t met no negative word about Croatian people..we would define them as people following their OWN strategy..they can be polite & fun, but they’re really sly people…and we had the possibility to be convinced of it lots of times..once upon a time we had rest in Montenegro, we really had fallen in love with this country & it’s people and we were sure that Croatian people (Istria region) are the same....of course, we just share our experience & opinion & don't want to offend anybody..we hope they could helpful & enjoy your vacations!!
