Fantastic family holidays. Super nice, helpful and welcoming staff (from housekeeping, reception, restaurant, beach bar, welness) - everyone is very friendly and kind. Tasty breakfast & dinner and nice selection of wines and other beverages. Had a great massage in the welness by Magdalena, and a wonderful experience overall. Recommended for couples, families, elderly.. Will be coming back :) Thank you

We spent our first family vacation of four in this wonderful hotel. The entire facility is very beautiful, clean and the staff incredibly friendly, helpful and attentive. Our children and we felt very comfortable. The sandy beach in the immediate vicinity was also an experience! The breakfast and dinner buffet was very good and incredibly rich. Also the restaurant, where you could have a small snack at noon was very good and the offer great.

Firstly Rab is a beautiful island and the padova is perfectly situated overlooking the town with picturesque, stunning city and sea views. The hotel is perfect for families yet does cater for every age group & type of traveler with multiple activities and superb facilities. We were impressed with the diverse activity programme available from cartoon discos to yoga & live music sessions. Pool area is excellent with baby area, Childrens slides, huge indoor pool & spa and a large adult pool with day beds and relaxation areas. Large, fresh selection of food available for half board options and quality restaurant and terrace with pretty views. Bedrooms are comfortable, adequate size with large scale balconies many with stunning views. This is a high quality family hotel which is doing a great job on a large scale to cater for all holiday types & needs. We enjoyed our stay here and if returned to Rab would definitely return to the padova!

We stayed at Valamar Padova Hotel in august 2022. The hotel is fantastic, our room was spacious and very comfortable, with balcony. All the staff is friendly and helpful. The food was great, there was always a lot of choice of delicious dishes. The restaurant, the pool, all the common areas are so large that you always feel relaxed. The sea is clean and beautiful. I found the service towel at the pool was great. The view of Rab at sunset was so fascinating. Valamar is a guarantee of quality.

Family of 5 with two teenagers and an 11 year old. Really enjoyed our time in Rab and at Valamar Padova Hotel. We went all inclusive and food was very good. Marin in the restaurant was particularly helpful and always a smile on his face. Probably better suited for younger families then ours. Hotel is perfectly located and a short walk from the main town. Great walks and food options along the coast. Good gym which we used a lot. Pools excellent and no problem getting loungers etc.
