Resort Villas Rubin
Ranked #19 of 23 Hotels in Rovinj
Reviewed 26 August 2012

Its one of those vacations that I want to forget asap. Rooms are old, mattresses not comfortable at all for sleep, staff don't care less for any complains, no matter how many times u go and repeat it to them, food is awful, worst food ever! All in all wouldn't recommend it even to my worst enemy.

Villa Rubins look like they haven't been touched since the 70s with cobwebs in the corners and an overgrown garden with unmown grass. Sports facilities are good apart from the swimming pool which is also shabby. Staff said what do you expect for the money but it is not particularly cheap.

It is a small vacation village with it's own rocky, gravelly and concrete beaches. We haven't stayed in their villas/apartments but we went to their beaches which we really liked - they were safe, clean and quite.

Be careful of apartments type A, there are no real photos on websides. In actual fact are apartments horrible, very very old, dirty and smelly. There are no windows downstairs, bathroom is terrible as well. They look like prison. We were very dissapointed

Our stay was organized by a company organizing handboll training for juniors. The facility is partly renovated so you must be aware of that. You will find a supermarket, ATM, one shop for swim articles, several restaurants, one swimming pool (salt water). The camping close by have a swimming pool with "ordinary" water. The food att the restaurant *(all inclusive part) was good in relation to the price. It is possible to rent jet ski and boat at a normal rate. A fan in the room would be appraciated.

First of all I’d like to take your attention that there’re 2 types of the accommodation: (1) the apartments & (2) rooms & it’s really a huge difference between them!!!..So, when you buy the place to stay pls pay your strong attention what you pay for. We paid for the apartments, but our tourist company booked for us the room so we had to stay there (“a nice surprise”..but, it’s another story); even when we offered to pay more for the apartments we were refused as all of them have been booked already. So, we had to stay in that room…the rooms are located in the 2floors houses not decorated for ages!!!..the room looks like a prison (I’m not joking & overstate!!)..it’s really like it is..we have looked at 4 rooms and finely stayed at “less prisoned one”..our room wasn’t cleaned for several days, the shower and toilet were become cluttered forever..can you imagine what kind of smell it was!! I don’t speak about condition system - of course, it wasn’t (as far we understand it wasn’t in apartments as well..it’s a general problem for hotels of Istria –no condition is almost anywhere).
We asked the receptionist to regulate the problems lots of times, wrote complaints – but all for nothing!! Only our insistence helped us when we told we wouldn’t go from the reception hall till the room would be cleaned!! And everything was like it is..no service at all!!! You should control everything!!..
Location: Villas Rubin is located several km by Rovinj center & it’s impossible to reach it by foot..so it’s better to have a car; or you can reach it by bus (which goes quite seldom - 2times a day; by boat or by taxi).

A few words about Croatians - it’s strange, but while reading reviews about Croatia we haven’t met no negative word about Croatian people..we would define them as people following their OWN strategy..they can be polite & fun, but they’re really sly people…and we had the possibility to be convinced of it lots of times..once upon a time we had rest in Montenegro, we really had fallen in love with this country & it’s people and we were sure that Croatian people (Istria region) are the same....of course, we just share our experience & opinion & don't want to offend anybody..we hope they could helpful & enjoy your vacations!!

I stayed at Villas Rubin with my wife and 12 year old boys for six nights and I have happy memories of my time there and Rovinj. We were traveling around coming from Italy and Slovenia so this was one of our stops. Villas Rubin consists of little challets and ours were two rooms (very clean) with plenty of wardrobe space, a clean bathroom and private garden, the enclosed walls were perhaps too high.

Villas Rubin is a tourist settlement and is pretty laid back, the location right next to the sea with some great scenery, it also joins on to a neighbouring campsite, also on both sides there are nudist camps. There are plenty of sport activities to choose from and you can hire all types of small boats. There are places to hire bikes from on the camp and at various places in the woods.

There is a big pool area and one for children and a pretty good water slide, well two actually (you have to pay to go on them). Here I must add that the pool is salt water and has under water plants or moss growing out of it and doesn't look nice (there is another pool at the campsite next door which is not salt water and is spotless) in fact the whole place is slightly run down and needs a face lift as one of the advertised restaurants was closed down and the other one run down and there were a few units that were probably once shops, now stood empty. There was entertainment every night may I add.

The town Rovinj itself lies about 30 minutes walk, (beware of the price of taxis) which is very picturesque with it winding cobbled streets, little courtyards and a harbour, we spent every evening wandering around the town, this is the reason why we stayed at Villas Rubin, it has got to be one of my favourite places and I really didn't want to move on.
