This was our first trip to Croatia and we were so pleased to have chosen Istria for our holiday. We were made to feel welcome at the Valamar Crystal on reception and checking in was swift. We were given a room on the 4th floor with a woodland outlook facing towards the sea. The room was fine but we thought... More

First time in Croatia and I loved it. Just myself and the teenager but we felt totally at home in the Valamar Crystal for our 10 day holiday. Hotel is fine, all the facilities you would need. It is just up from the "beach", no sand which I thought would be disappointing but actually didn't bother me at all, got... More

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

We were at this hotel for 2 weeks. Everything was great and The staff was perfect. The hotel was located about 1 km from the old town and after a nice walk by the sea, you enter Porec. You can also take the touristtrain. I can really recommend this hotel.
