I had a wonderful time in Resort by Valamar! Nice, and clean.. staff was very nice to us. Everything was great. We had a team building with out collegues and for 2 stars hotels, this is comfortable. Resort is so big, have several beaches. Think is not such for families, maybe is more for friends or couples..

Nice and clean apartments with all the necessary things give a home feeling. Very big area for walking and jogging. Very close to the beach. It is a big area but you feel safe there. New is installed photovoltaic panels for electricity. So in this way will be saved energy. Everything is friendly to the environment.

This place is not safe for families and is intimidating for teenage girls with guests caught taking photographs of our teenage daughter and Valamar staff leering at her. Needless to say she was very distraught to the point she refused to leave the apartment. Accommodation is very basic and like an oven. Despite Valamar staff promising a fan this did not arrive during our stay which lead to none of us getting a proper nights sleep. In fact, a member of staff very rudely told us to go and buy one! There were also cockroaches in the apartment, the door frame was broken and there were lots of drunken young people who seemed to party most of the day, all of which added to our fears for our health and safety. How Valamar can put its name to this place is beyond comprehension! If you want to enjoy everything Croatia has the offer then try anywhere else!!

We came for a family holiday, on a budget so we sere thrilled with a price for a three bedroom apt. Accomodation was pretty much everything you need on a coast:clean simple comfortable with large balcony vith see view (top priority). Stone throw from the beach, plenty of shade im pine three mini forest, three restaurats, plenty od ice cream stands for kids, wild shores turnes to turist friendly spots, mafije life to explore just 20-30 meters from the beach... To nam a few. But what counts the most:smiles aplenty from all the staff from house keeping to suvenir guy, Istria and Lanterna will make you feel like long lost friend that finally came back home.

Firstly we have stayed at Lanterna twice before and have always been happy here. However, this time on arrival, it was quite clear that the whole place had become very run down since our last visit a year ago. We know that this is classed as basic, no frills resort but even basic should minimal standards, but there are empty shop spaces, scruffy grounds and buildings and graffiti on apartment walls. Before even checking in we decided to have a quick coffee in the cafe beside reception, at this point alarm bells started to ring when my teenage daughter mentioned that a man was constantly staring at her, making her feel very uncomfortable. At check in, we requested a fan, knowing that the rooms do get extremely hot during the night as there is no air conditioning. We was told none was available but one would be brought to our apartment the next day. On entering the apartment, we noticed basic items was missing, for example a kettle, so we went back to reception, the Valamar receptionist/specialist dealt with the issue of the kettle and other items quickly, we also reminded him about the fan, which is almost a medical necessity to me, as I can not get to hot. Only to be told that if we want one to go to the supermarket which is 3 km away and purchase one ourselves, we was absolutely astounded at this response! as paying guests we would expect a more professional response to the matter. Needless to say we had a very uncomfortable night in an apartment that was almost like an oven, and none of us slept well of at all. On the second day, whilst my daughter and I was going to the supermarket I noticed Valamar workers leering at my daughter in a very uncomfortable manner, this put us both on edge and made my daughter so anxious that she will not go anywhere on the resort alone. By day three of our week holiday, still no fan despite reminders at reception so none of us have slept well since being here and we do not feel very safe on the resort or even in our apartment as the door is not very secure and there are drunken youngsters in apartments around us that come home at all hours of the night tapping on doors and windows, this is suppose to be a family resort?!? In light of all of the above we decided to take a very expensive and extraordinary step and check out early, and find other accommodation where we can feel safer and have a relaxing and comfortable holiday! I am very sorry but we will not be returning for a fourth time and we are very surprised that Valamar puts their name to this resort any more!

I was a solo traveller and on my motorbike so a quiet room was very important to me so I could enjoy a good night sleep. Suzana checked me in and looked after me as it was pretty busy at Reception when I arrived. I got my room only to discover that it was surrounded by school kids on their summer vacation and from experience I know, they can be loud. I then went back to Reception and asked if they could swap my room and as they were full, it proved to be difficult but thanks to Susana's efforts I was given a new room which was quite, so thank you Suzana for understanding that. It was so good I stayed another night. The resort itself is massive, lots to do and see, a bit run down in parts (you get what you pay for as they also have a four star hotel on site) but the friendly staff (thank you Goran and Anamaria) made up for that. The ocean is so salty, that you can float in it, and if you are very lucky, as I was, you could see the dolphins swimming. So all in all a good stay for me. Thank you.

We was slightly apprehensive about our visit due to covid-19, but there was no need to worry at all. Hand sanitisers everywhere, masks worn and social distancing being adhered to. It was lovely and quiet and we had a fantastic well needed break from being in lock down for months. We felt safer here than in our own home town. This was our second visit to Lanterna and once again it did not disappoint. We arrived from Pula airport earlier than expected but was allowed to check in straight away by the friendly receptionist. There was a long walk to our apartment and once we got there I could not stay in it as the trees was touching our balcony and I felt very claustrophobia, but there was no problem In us going to look at other apartments to find one that suited. The receptionist apologised for not being able to offer more as not all apartments had been cleaned due to them having to be left 72 hours before the cleaners could enter. Most of the apartments are very basic and in need of a lick of a paint and they could do with some comfortable sofa beds put in as my daughter said it is the most uncomfortable one she has ever slept on, but the apartment itself was clean and we were supplied with fresh towels and sheets a few times during our week stay. It has a very relaxing feel to the area and has beautiful gorgeous clear blue sea, perfect for snorkelling off the rocks and absolutely stunning sunsets, the best view is down by the lighthouse. Lanterna is part of a large complex containing several other resorts on the peninsula. Sunny Resort itself doesn't have many facilities but there are plenty of things to do on the peninsula if you wish to do so. The Resort has so much potential and some people are put off by its shabby appearance but we absolutely love the relaxed calming atmosphere and location and will definitely return for a third time as it is fantastic value for money.

We don't have mobile signal in our apartments and on balcony we have bad signal, so we need to distance ourselves from apartments to make a call, I reported problem on reception and they told me that I was first person who complained about it, which obviously isn't true since almost everybody I asked told me they didn't have signal. Reception staff was also very unprofessional.
