We thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay in the Valamar Rubin. We also enjoyed Porec and the Istrian Penisula in general.
Being on half-board was a new experience for us and one that we will repeat if the quantity, quality and variety of food on offer here is typical.The bedrooms were fairly basic but adequate. That, however, was the only three-star aspect of the hotel. Decor in the public areas was of a higher standard; service was excellent; staff helpful; the pool area large, clean and spacious; and there are good swimming facilities in the sea just 100 metres from the hotel. WiFi was only available in the lobby area.
We reported one small issue with the bedroom and that was dealt with immediately. Our neighbours in the adjacent room justifiably complained of excessive noise from the room above and that was also dealt with effectively.
I have a couple of minor gripes which others may dismiss. If you require a drink with your dinner, even water, you have to pay for it. In the same vein the orange juice on offer at breakfast was tasteless but it was possible to purchase freshly squeezed orange juice. We settled for the free apple juice.
