8/10 Very good

We Meant to stay at another hotel but due to 'technical difficulties' we were moved here and we ere so glad we were. The hotel is right on the harbour. It takes about 10 minutes to walk into Rab City itself. The facilities at the hotel are great, staff are very attentive and do a wonderful job. The food buffets for breakfast and dinner are amazing there was so much choice and something for everyone even the fussiest eater. we had two comments though. the drinks in the bar are very expensive compared to a local bar next door to the hotel. we paid 32 Kuna for a beer and a g & T in the little bar next door but the same was 92 Kuna in the hotel . I'm sure they have to make a profit but if they reduced their bar prices guests would spend more time in the hotel. If you have mobility difficulties or are of short stature you may find it tricky getting out of the shower. The shower is over the bath and the bath is a lovely deep bath ideal if you want to soak but not so ideal if you have a shower and then try to step out of the bath, I am 5feet 8inches tall and struggled to step out of the bath. However I would certainly recommend this hotel

2/10 Poor

Worst hotel ever-I've travelled all over the globe
Horrible stay overall. Gabi at reception gave us an extremely small room and insisted it's a "triple room", I was forced on a very small child-sized bed even though two doubles as a minimum were advertised. I was lied to! Gabi was very rude as well. She told me to come back to reception to complete the checkin after one hour as she was busy checking others in. Gabi asked for full payment even though the hotel stay was already prepaid. She denied knowledge of the prepayment. She asked for payment again in full at checkout, I had to remind her that she already managed to find the prepaid booking the before. The waiter at the breakfast said we are not entitled to breakfast as we don't have a paid for reservation. It was so embarrassing in front of all the other guest. Another waiter came and asked for payment too!! I had to go to reception to clear this! The hotel charges for drinks at the "free breakfast and dinners" so it's not really free. Please listen to my advice and DO NOT STAY here. All staff were rude too. The sauna took our payment and later told us it's only going to be open for an hour but they haven't turned on the heating yet, which will take about 20 min. Trashy and loud music was played around 10 pm under the title "dance show". You are better off in an airbnb.

Great stay but go out for dinner
Very nice resort in a wonderful town. We were disappointed by the “half board” option, however, as the restaurant is all buffet, even for dinner. We would stay again but only include breakfast at the hotel.

Very good quality hotel.
Hotel was in superb location with water taxi to the old town. The restaurant were extremely good with wide variety of food. A special mention to 'Dragan' who was exceptionally good at his job!

10/10 Exceptional

A resort hotel within Rab island off Croatia coast
I booked this hotel without knowing it is located in an island. I had to take a car ferry to go to the island. But the cost was reasonable and the frequency of the ferry was o.k. The hotel was located very next to a small port. The hotel receptionist gave me a sea view room and the sceanary from the room was excellent. You could also see the performance at night. The food served was delicious. Only down side is you have to pay for the wifi and it can be connected only in the lobby. The general conditions of the hotel was reasonable but the renovation would be nice. The hotel location could not be better, except the car park place is very limited.

6/10 Good

Basic, but great location and views
We had a lovely 5-day stay on Rab and this hotel made for a good base. The view from our (sea view) balcony was fabulous and well worth the extra we paid, the pool was good (if cold) and the location, just 15 mins walk around the marina from the Old Town was excellent. On the other hand, the food was deeply unimpressive (bland buffet consisting of overcooked fish, grilled meat, a stew and standard pasta/vegetable fayre - we ended up eating out on two of our 5 nights), everything was a bit tired and the hotel seemed to charge extras for almost everything (wifi in the lobby which wasn't even especially fast, using the minibars for your own drinks etc). The building is also appallingly ugly, but that doesn't really matter when you're in it! Overall, it does a good job - and the view from the balcony was really quite something. Would recommend but not with overwhelming enthusiasm.

Adequate quality buffet with plenty of options was a good choice with small number of restaurants open in the pre-pre-season and the indoor pool was a saviour on a rainy day. Comfy beds and friendly staff helped too.

Modernes Hotel und freundliches Personal, Zimmer etwas klein. Gute Lage. Hauptsächlich Gäste aus Deutschland (, die gerne ihre Liegen über Stunden reservieren) und Österreich. Altersdurchschnitt gefühlt 55 bis 60, obwohl auch sehr gutes Angebot für Kinder, junge Erwachsene.
