We stayed in the Valamar Rubin for 2 weeks in mid August. The hotel is in a great location 5 minutes from the waterfront and beaches with cafes/bars and parks and other amusements for the kids close by. It takes about 15 minutes to walk into Porec along a lovely pine wood lined pathway.Its is just far enough away to escape the town if you want to, which can get quite busy and loud of a night ,but not as far as the hotels in the Laguna area which would probably take you a good hour at least to walk into the town from, the 'noddy train ' being the other alternative to access it.There is a bus station in Porec which makes it easy to travel around and see a bit of the country and there are plenty of boat trips which leave daily from the marina.
The hotel itself cant be faulted for a 3 star. The reception and bar area are smart. The rooms are fine with free aircon and safe and the cleaner came in every day.We had the added bonus of a balcony, which we were under the imppression you had to pay more for, and a pool view.
More than ample choice at the buffets for breakfast and dinner and the food was to a high standard.
Great pool area and my son had a brilliant time, despite there being no other English families and children for him to play with, he managed to make some lovely German friends for the holiday they managed to communicate through sign language Where theres a will theres a way!!
The staff in all of the areas were always pleasant and very cheerful and helpful and this was the case in Croatia in general.
Would definately recommend the country and you cant go wrong by choosing the Valamar Rubin if you're looking to visit Porec.
