4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Just had an amazing week at the Valamar Crystal hotel in Porec. Very family friendly but equally appealing to all ages. Restaurant and bar staff are very efficient and friendly giving the hotel a very personal atmosphere. Istria is amazingly beautiful and is a lovely location for a relaxing holiday.

Hotel is very clean and staff very friendly and polite. Thomson holiday rep was excellent, never tried to oversell any of the trips and actually told us what to avoid, some great advice. Nice...

I booked a junior suite for me, my wife and two children: two very small united room. In one there was only one bed for me and my wife was uncomfortable (for one person and half) and without television. In the other room one divan bed and a small television. In compensation the staff is very nice

What can I say. Firstly no negatives only positives. The hotel is situated in its own beautiful grounds sloping gently down to the sea. The lounge/ bar areas are spacious with very comfortable seating to relax after a busy day.

Stayed in small single room with park view. Air condition (ie. heating those days) didn't work but all other things make you forget about that one thing. Abundant breakfast (one of the best I've seen in hotels) and kind personel make you feel very cosy. Would like to come back again!
