Two of us stayed in a twin room (ground floor with balcony) at the Valamar Crystal from 20 June to 1 July. We had a fantastic time, we would echo the previous positive comments made by everyone on Tripadvisor. The room was kept extremely clean and tidy (thanks to Mariana), it had everything we needed.
