Nice hotel close to the sea, clean and well arranged. Good choice of food. Very surprised to find the location of Rabac and the cleanliness of the sea. The only thing that bothered me a bit is the internet access is too complicated.

Stayed: July 2013, traveled with family

We stayed at the Casa from 8/7 - 8/14. The room was spacious, beautiful, with sea view, large bathroom and beautifull balcony. Food was great for both breakfast and diner with a lot of choices for everybody. The staff was very friendly from the reception to restaurant personel to cleaning staff. There is a lot of entertainment options as well. Special thanks to Dragana, the restaurant manager for her profesionalism and friendliness. Overall, beautifull place - will come back again...

Room Tip: If you like quiter rooms, ask for rooms at the Casa that are not overlooking the pool. All rooms hav...

We vacationed at the Casa from 7/29-8/10, we had large family room with a sea view on the 3rd floor. From the moment we arrived we were impressed by the beautiful location, the grounds and the friendly staff. I am focusing my review on the hotel because the location, the sea and the local people were so wonderful that I could right a book on my vacation. The design, construction and cleanliness at the Casa was top quality. Each meal offered a vast selection of fresh high quality food to choose from. I had no issues finding something to satisfy my children at each meal. Every person we encountered from the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I would like to recognize all of their efforts but I especially would like to thank Sabrina and Dragana for their efforts to make our vacation the best it could be.

The rooms were spacious, new and very comfortable. We had a sea view room. I recommend a high floor and if you book a sea view room try not to get 9 or 10. Sitting on the balcony in the evening, watching the moon shine on the sea and the lights in the pool area, all extremely picturesque. The grounds are immaculate, the staff (every where, it started with reception, continued in dining room, the bar area) very helpful and accommodating. The pool is beautiful. We loved looking out at the sea from the pool. The beach area is very convenient to the hotel. Lots nearby off the walk way in front of the hotel. Water sports, convenience store, cafes.

This hotel really beat our expectations. huge family room with two bathrooms, 3 toilets and 3 double beds. Two terraces in the shade of pine trees and almost direct access to both the hotel pools (inside and outside) and the fabulous beach with pale white sand and pebbels. The rocks at the beach provide shelter to many coulorful fish. Perfect for snorkelling . Dinner and breakfast where of excellent quality. Every single dish wash prepared in front our eyes and personally loved the local mussels that where prepared to perfection with garlic. The people at the reception where friendly and helpful. Rabac is very touristic though very cosy and hospitable city with long beach promenade and many shops. I really have to stress the cleanliness of the hotel and striving towards perfectionism. We'll come back for sure.

Room Tip: Ask for a refurbished room.

Stayed at this hotel in June and the experience was superb. Everything was of the highest quality, rooms, cleanliness, food, pool, excellent location in a lovely resort and, particularly, the warm friendly and helpful staff, as are all the people of this region who I met.
The meal quality was outstanding, changing on a daily basis. The evening meal choice was very comprehensive of soups, fish, meat, salads, vegetables, breads etc, followed by fruits, cakes, freshly cooked puddings, donuts, icecreams etc. The breakfast choice was equally good with fruit salads, yogurts, cold meats and cheeses, eggs - boiled, scrambled or fried and made to order omelettes - bacon, sausage, grilled tomatoes, courgettes. Need I go on?
If anyone stayed at this hotel and was not extremely satisfied, they must be extremely hard to please.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent quality. However, those who like to retire early to bed may find rooms overl...
