Stayed at the Valamar Crystal for a week in September 2013 on business so cannot comment on prices. Hotel exterior is a bit dated but otherwise very well maintained as are the hotel grounds. Room interior was thoroughly modern and comfy. The buffet breakfasts and dinners were AWESOME! Coffee was good, which in Croatia, is note-worthy I was constantly looking... More

Our room was spotlessly clean with a... More

This is an excellent 3 star family hotel - but definitely not the 4 stars advertised. However, we must say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We were a little disappointed with our initial reception. Arriving on a horribly early Thomson flight we were informed that our room wouldn't be available until 2 P.M. and that we could leave...

In the front door, the hotel shows 4 stars, but inside you will discover a simple 2 stars hotel. The other Valamar Diamant Hotel is the real 4 star, but is next door. Things don't work exactly as you want it, but it is an average hotel. Do not expect much of it, at least, the village is a nice... More

This review is going to be somewhat easy & short & sweet because I can't disagree with anything previous reviewers have said - it would just be repeating the obvious. Just on a personal note, the atmosphere & relaxation at the hotel were just right for us (being in our late sixties but not yet ready for the pipe &... More

What a friendly place to be,so clean,so spacious, so convenant to the many sites.It is set in pinewoods, and is only about 50 yards from the sea, Porec,a historical,unspoiled fishing town is a short walk along the coast from the hotel. The restaurant has so much choice of excellently cooked food,that even the most particular appetite should be satisfied. Swimming... More

We have just come back from a week at the Valamar Crystal. It's a really nice hotel which has made the most of the communist Russia style architecture that you see around this part of Croatia. The landscaping is stunning, and the hotel is set in pine woods by the sea and it's a short stroll to Porec. Porec is... More

Stayed here for a week at the end of September. The hotel itself is part of three side by side, although not cluttered together. You have a 3star, then the valamar crystal which is the 4star and the 5star diamant. All look very much the same, modern and spotlessly clean. We stayed half board and found the food just average....

Had a really relaxing 2 week holiday at the Valamar Crystal Hotel. A truly lovely hotel that only misses excellent by a small amount. I can recommend it. As previous reviews have stated, the hotel is set within a pine forest area with lots of the cutest, smallest squirrels we have ever seen running around (adorable). Lizards are basking in... More
