“3 Star and no more”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

I really cant abide hotels that masquerade at something they are not. This is clearly the case with Rapo's Resort Hotel in Himare Albania.

Rooms are tiny, no telephone,overly hot (conditioning controlled from elsewhere),no internet in the room,television with 3 channels.Landings outside the rooms are kept with the conditioning off the windows open and as a result these areas are infested with mosquitoes.

The pool area is nice but as is so often the case in Albanian run hotels the management clearly lack the skills to make a hotel successful, ie full of pretension that their hotel is 5 stars when it is clearly not.

May I suggest a visit to Hotel Belvedere in Durres another Albanian run establishment but one that is a pleasure to stay in and run to Western standards

No internet, exept from The lobby. The restaurant is very poorly equiped and they dont have half of the food on the menu. The staff speeks bad english, and It's difficult to communicate with Them.The pool is good, but thats just enough to qualify for 5 stars. 3 is more than enough!

The only good thing about Rapo's is the pool and NOTHING else. The restaurant is way too expensive for the Albanian standards and portions are ridicolous. The rooms are small and definitely not worth for 5 stars. The road to the sea is annoying and one must watch out not to get hurt from the stones:( I don't recommend it

This hotel is perhaps the best you will find in Himare. A little bit overpriced for the region but if you need some western standard its worth. Standard rooms with sea view (small balcony) are available for 70€ per night (End of May 2012), the price is probably higher in the main season. Towels for the pool (clean) and pool chairs are included.
Food is ok if you prefer Italian style cuisine. You will not find local food. Staff is friendly and speaks English/Italian. All in all not a bad hotel, little bit expensive for the region but in comparison to the rest in Himare the only choice.

We spent two nights in winter there - as the only guests in the hotel and paying a very reasonable amount of less than 50 EUR per night. The staff spoke some words of english (what was more than we had expected), we were offered a very nice breakfast including omelette. The rooms themselves are modern, have a beautiful view to the seafront, good beds and a well stuffed mini-bar. The staff was extremely friendly and caring. The restaurant is closed in winter, but several restaurants are in walking distance.

The hotel room was nice and very clean.
The swimming pool was excellent, and so the beach near by.
The staff was OK, but nobody informed me that if I pay with a credit card I will be charged 3% more.
By the swimming pool to see baby diapers was a bit annoying...
The bar is very OK and the staff there friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was jut OK.. not a 5 start standard anyway.
