Hotel Padova is a large modern hotel complex located on the southern shore of Rab island in the bay of Prva Padova, 500 metres from the Adriatic coast and two kilometres from the old Croatian town of Rab. Rooms have white walls and patterned bedspreads. All have balconies (some with park or sea views), hair dryers and cable television. <br> After swimming in any of the indoor and outdoor swimming pools, guests can take breakfast on the sun terrace, while for lunch or dinner there is an a la carte restaurant. Regular folk events provide the evening entertainment and there is a nightclub on site. Rab island is an idyllic Adriatic getaway, linked to the mainland by a regular 15 minute ferry service. Guests can explore the island's many pebbly and sandy beaches by car or by boat, watch the sunset from St Mary's Bell Tower, then wander the winding, cobbled streets of Rab old town, two kilometres from the hotel. Zagreb Airport is 200 kilometres away, a drive of around 180 minutes.
