Pros: The hotel was very clean, the buffet items were changing daily, the staff is very friendly and speaks several languages
Cons: Internet access did not work in the room, it worked at the reception for some reason.
The location of the hotel is very nice, from our room we were able to look at the Adriatic Sea. The hotel was kept very clean, we could see staff cleaning the pool area every morning. Sitting on a terrace outdoors and looking at the sea while eating breakfast, watching the birds fly around was very charming and relaxing.

Best staff ever

Every single member of the staff, from the roomkeeper and poolboy to the head of reception, were exceptionally friendly and professional. I think it's a first for me to have such an experience.

Great Staff - Comfortable hotel

Posted Sep 21, 2015
Pros: Great staff, lovely location.
Cons: We had a non-smoking room, but the neighbors smoked on their patio. The smoke smell came into the room when we opened the patio doors. Smelly!
Location: Hike to Labin, stroll the seaside, swim, tennis. We took daytrips to Pula, Rovinj, Trieste and Slovenia.
We scheduled the Valamar at the end of our tour of central Europe so we would have time to decompress and relax. This is a great place to do just that! The staff is the crowning jewel of this hotel...maybe even more so than the amazing location on the sea. The front desk staff made sure we were comfortable and were exceptionally knowledgeable on sites to see and directions to get there. Despite a snafu with our room, they did there best to make it up to us. We really appreciated that they made phone calls for us to place reservations. The wait staff was gracious and attentive. I was impressed that they remembered our room number!

Great hotel

Posted Aug 31, 2015
Pros: 1. Great staff, esp. the animation team 2. Main restaurant has nice food - good choice of healthy options too 3. Facilities & comfort of hotel
Cons: The Delphin bistro food is less impressive
Location: Rabac is nice village but a little remote. Pula is about 50 mins drive, Porec and Rovinj are just over an hour by car.
Fully recommend this hotel. Located next to the beach and 20-30 mins from Rabac centre. Great facilities for families (kids club) and really friendly / welcoming staff. Food in the buffet is also above average

Lovely hotel near the beach

Pros: Friendly staff. Good choice of food at buffet. Good quality, reasonably priced local wines. Lovely pool & spa facilities.
Cons: Tea & coffee making facilities in room would be nice.
Location: Great views. Close to beach. Bars and restaurants within walking distance but the hotel had everything we wanted.
Good facilities. Friendly staff went out of their way to be helpful and welcoming.

Good hotel in the best location in Rabac

Posted Jul 25, 2015 on Orbitz
We were staying in superior room facing the seaside. I would highly advise a room on the side of the main entrance, since it receives direct sun only during the morning, so it is possible to use the balcony in the afternoon. Otherwise it can be too hot to sit outside. Room was spacious enough and very clean. Friendly and efficient staff at reception and hospitality desk. Buffet dinner had good selection and it varied from day to day. Unfortunately the same good not be said for breakfast. Rather limited selection, which was the same every day. This was probably the main downside of this hotel. Hotel has probably the best location in Rabac. Close to all activity, but at the same time not in the crowded and noisy part of town. It has good variety of places to stay on the beach (grass with pine trees or pebbles just next to the water).
