We stayed as a couple from the 14th July for a week, when we arrived we couldn't believe how huge the actual resort is....so many things to do and very reasonable prices. The pool was very busy and did not actually use it once due to no available sunbeds, ended up getting a boat over to nearby Valamar Isabella which... More

I was on the American Music Abroad Bronze Tour touring Europe with 100 kids. We stayed at the Valamar Crystal hotel for 3 nights. The beach was beautiful, but 3 kids got stung by sea urchins in the ocean. The pool was salt water. The hotel rooms were very spacious.

Situated in a beautiful location with a very nice beach. We were especially pleased with the new pier for jumps in the middle of the bay.

returned recently and decided to try Valamar Crystal, having stayed in their 'sister' Hotel next door The Valamar Diamant on 3 other occasions; only because it is no longer available via Thomson. Was not disappointed in the least. Valamar as a company are a very professional organisation who do an excellent job making your holiday perfect. Friendly staff, impeccable cleanliness... More
