The Valamar chain has several hotels and resorts, with a focus on Istria. Like many other hotels, the Crystal is a Yugoslav-era building which had been re-furbished. Despite the architectural constraints of the time - narrow rooms, lots of visible concrete - it is now a modern, clean, nicely decorated hotel. Very close to the beach. Friendly and competent staff...

This hotel is in ideal spot about 15 min walk into Porec along the coast path which is a picturesque place if you have difficulty in walking there is a noddy train along the coast path which cost about 10 kuna. The beach area is manly stone slabs the sea is roped of for swimming

I do a lot of research for the places we stay at and I re-read previous reviews on TA going back over a year before I wrote this and don't understand how our experience was so different to other visitors.

Lovely hotel, made in general by the staff. Good food, nice rooms,although ours had a poor outlook. The major feature was the outstanding restaurant staff. We had a lovely holiday in a beautiful area. I just ask myself why some people pay the money to come to a beautiful area and look so miserable and act without manners. Only minuses...
