The gps helped in finding the pension but there are signs pointing you in the right direction if arriving by car. The rooms overlook a quiet inlet and there is no traffic noise. The room was on the small size but adequate and we were given a choice of first or second floors. Breakfast was more than enough and we had no trouble in communicating in English.

Room Tip: Both floors have sea views .

We had booked this Pension directly with the owner, as we wanted a sea-view room, and these didn't seem to be available when booked with online travel agencies.

We arrived in Rab by Bus and followed the signed route to the Hotel, which took about 10 minutes.

As we had booked half-board (the only way to get a sea-view room we found at the time of booking), at check-in we were asked to choose our meal for the first evening. This consisted of a fixed soup, fixed salad, choice of 2 mains (generally meat or fish), and a fixed desert. This selection was repeated every day.

Our room was on the 2nd floor, but there Is no lift, however the guy on reception did help with our luggage. The room was a decent size with comfortable beds, decent bathroom and a small balcony with table & 2 chairs, and with a fabulous view over the harbour. South facing too, so that it got the sun for most of the day.

The hotel has 10 sea-view rooms, 4 overlooking the car-park at the rear and 2 at the end facing east. It is in a lovely quite area called Palit, which is around 10 minutes walk to the commercial centre of Rab Town, and about 20 minutes to the harbour area.

The bar staff both at breakfast and at dinner were very pleasant, and the setting of the restaurant is very good, with tables set under a veranda. There are also tables inside but as the weather was always warm we only ever ate outside.

There were a few bad points however, although they didn't necessarily detract from our overall stay at the hotel, These were.......
- the Wi-Fi signal was very poor, even when standing next to the router on the landing it was really slow.
- there were 3 electric sockets in our room, but 2 were taped off with sellotape, so not intended to be used - why? We had to disconnect the TV from it's socket to charge up phones etc. The plug on the hairdryer, when plugged in the bathroom, kept falling out of it's socket, the only way to keep it in was to hold the hairdryer in one hand and the plug in another !
- the holder for the shower was loose on the wall, so you had to hold the end of the shower in you hand to shower yourself.

Breakfast was identical every day and was served to you. It consisted of (per person) - 3 slices of bread, 1 croissant (usually normal size but occasional a mini one), a plate of meat & cheese (to share), and assorted jams, spreads etc. There was some limited fruit to which you could help yourself, and yoghurts and weak fruit juice too. The coffee was from a machine, but rather than using fresh coffee beans, it was cheap instant coffee, which didn't really taste like coffee at all.

Evening dinner (for those on half-board) always consisted of...a small bowl of soup (varied daily), a small salad (tomato, cucumber, cabbage or mixed). Your choice of main course, and dessert (scoop of ice cream, pancake, small piece of cake etc.)

Main courses were generally ok, but one memorable night I had chosen pork escallops with pasta Milano, which turned out to be 2 small bread-crumbed pork steaks (inc. bone) and a tin of Heinz spaghetti in tomato sauce! Not all the dinners were this strange I hasten to say, but it generally gives you a feel for what the hotel is prepared to serve to their guests.

All the meals, both Breakfasts and Dinners were obviously prepared to a strict budget, and this penny-pinching attitude is the reason why I wouldn't recommend it to other guests.

Room Tip: A sea-view room is a must

Pansion Tamaris is on a very quiet bay 20 minutes walk along the coastal path to Rab town. Although part of the area immediately behind the bay, near the car park, was a little scruffy, the bay was an ideal quiet spot to stay and the walk into Rab was a delight. Service in the restaurant was a little strange but amusing. The wi-fi was the best we found in Croatia.

This is a really pleasant place to stay, very near the historic centre of Rab Town. Advertised as a 'pension' this is more of a small hotel, with rather bland but spotlessly clean rooms. The best feature is the roofed terrace on the ground floor (where food is served and drinks can be taken at night) which overlooks a small marina. The staff are very, very helpful and happy to provide information and advice. There is ample parking. The Rab Town old town centre is a lovely 15 minute walk along the water's edge, although note there are no lamps so at night coming back along the main road may be advised. I also recommend taking a taxi boat from just outside the hotel to the other end of the bay, there is excellent swimming to be had. All in all a great experience, if pricey by Croatian standards.
