Visited the Valamar Crystal on a coach trip and pleasantly surprised with the hotel and its staff. Due to unforeseen circumstances we arrived too late for dinner but the hotel left an excellent cold meal for our arrival. The rooms were very clean and superbly furnished and ours was on the ground floor at the back with a lovely big... More

Pleasant hotel about an hour from Pula airport, there is a nice fifteen minute walk away from traffic, beautiful sea views and through woodland into the town of Porec. The path also used by cyclists and the regular road train for those not wanting to walk. The town of Porec consists of lovely cobbled streets with numerous places for coffee,... More

We went on a group tour and was very pleased with the hotel and its location. Very quiet area but only a short 15 minute walk into the town along a delightful coastal path. The hotel was modern with a nice bar area and good outside seating with large umbrellas overlooking the well attended gardens and sea. We had a... More

Well, what can we say. This is the first time to Croatia having been to Egypt for three years and then Norway. We avoided Croatia as it has been very expensive in the past, although it is now more reasonable. We originally booked via Thomson to stay at the Island Hotel, Fortuna, however, we were contacted and advised that the... More

Just had a week here, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Porec is beautiful, clean and unspoilt. The hotel is situated in a quiet wooded area, close to the sea. The surroundings are very well-kept, with lots of outdoor seating and dining areas, as well as sun loungers in the gardened areas as well as at the poolside. Inside, the lobby is... More
