Fodor's Expert Review Girandella Valamar Collection Resort

Ulica Girandella 7, Rabac, Istarska, 52221, Croatia

Offering three different sections (family hotel, adults-only hotel, and private villas) with shared facilities, this resort is 100 meters from the most beautiful blue-flag Istrian beaches. All areas share the resort's three stylish pools, six restaurants, bars, fitness area, spa and wellness center, tennis courts, children's playground, and babysitting services. And everyone loves using the Sundance Beach Club, with its clubby atmosphere, private beaches, modern pools, and lounge areas. Although you don't need to leave the resort, all you need to do is walk either way on the seafront promenade to enjoy other beaches, restaurants, bars, and fun activities of Rabac.
