“Perfect site for a leisurely chill out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2010

Valalta is not as sophisticated as some Spanish and French naturist sites but what it lacks in sophistication is more than compensated by the location. The accommodation we stayed in, a VB apartment, was rustic but comfortable and very clean. The grounds are superb with good beach facilities and both sandy, flat rocks and grassy areas to sunbathe with lots of natural shade if required. The on site restaurants provide good food at acceptable prices but again this is no holiday for those with gourmet pretensions.
All in all my wife and I loved our 8 days stay at the end of the season and we will certainly be returning to Valalta in the future.

"What a wonderful wirld" Valalta says in advertising. We don´t agree, and this for several reasons. Valalta is big and does offer a lot of facilities (2 swimming pools, several restaurants, supermarket etc.). The best of the whole thing are the nice views and the harbour within the naturist ressort. But .. service is so unpersonal and you often think ist not a naturist place as you see a lot of people clothed. You could say this last point isn´t the fault of Valalta? Valalta don´t tolerate people naked when going into the supermarket, reception, pharmacy etc. So this doesn´t help to get the naturist spirit.
We booked an appartment (self-catering) for two weeks. Biggest problem there was the noise begining at 7 in the morning by staff who passed all the time with their carts full of laundry. As the "appartments" are built one to another you hear (during the night)everything coming from other appartments - don´t have to explain which noises ...
Also be careful with the prices: prices in € are just indicative. We had to pay 50€ extra because of currency fluctuations (why do they mention prices in € then, when you can´t rely on them?). And one surprice at the end: our children had impedigo, nice present of using the swimming pool ...
So, for us it´s clear: we don´t go to Valalta again.

We reserved through internet for two weeks an LA bungalow in the park ‘LAVRI’, in half pension (breakfast and dinner). As at lunch/time snacks or lunch can be taken many restaurants/bistro, at a very reasonable price.

Breakfast and dinner are to be taken in the main restaurant (dressed!), where the service is in buffet form. The statement ‘reichhaltiges’ certainly complies (selection of veal, pork, veggie and fish), not haute cuisine, but certainly value for money. beverages are to be paid (e.g. 15 Kuna (2.1 EURO) for 0.5 liter of beer),

The infrastructure is a bit outdated, but everything is kept perfectly clean all the time (you can so to speak eat from the floor).

A (sometimes steep) jogging (mountain bike?) trail is available, with beautiful sight over the Lim Fjord (not leaving the grounds, clothing optional). Also many sport activities (pool, mini golf, tennis, kayak, windsurfing...) is no problem. Mountain bikes (reception) and kayaks (marina) can be rent.

Cars are not allowed inside the bungalow park and stay at reserved places near the entrance, making the area a quiet place. Electric cars are available to transfer your luggage on simple call. Response after request is really quick, service is free, drivers are helpful, friendly and don’t expect tip.

Every evening there is some activity organised, located on different locations (the beach or one of the theme restaurants), latest ending at midnight, after which all is very quiet.

Nightlife scenery does not exist.

Personnel is not extremely enthusiastic, but professional and correct, no begging for tips, all extras (beverages, hotspot, ...) are all low price, and no unexpected extras had to be paid during the stay (a relief after the rip-off on the motorways).

We spent a week at the Valalta resort in July, we were after a very simple, laid back and relaxing holiday, and that's exactly what we got.

We booked directly - we originally enquired via Peng Travel the naturist travel agency, but when we then looked at booking our own flights and booking accommodation directly with the resort, we realised it was about £300 cheaper! It didn't include transfer, but we used a company called Jam Transfers who sent a taxi to meet us both ends which cost a total of £75 for the two of us to travel to and from the airport, so definitely worth looking at making your bookings directly.

The resort itself is massive, split between camping, caravans, apartments and bungalows, and spread over several acres of coast, and it's about a 15 minute drive from Rovinj town centre - the resort runs a bus there several times a day should you wish to visit. However if you don't want to leave the resort, you really don't have to, every thing you need is there.

We stayed in a self catering apartment, and we opted for a VB - which slept four even though there were only two of us,, which if your budget allows I would recommend as it did give a nice amount of space. The apartments are all set around little squares and are really quite peaceful. The kitchen is basic, there's no oven but there's a couple of rings and a nice coffee machine and a fridge - which was more than enough for us! The room are cleaned daily and the linen is changed every other day - we couldn't fault the apartment, the standard was excellent.

There's a choice of restaurants throughout the resort, but really you're only getting a different view as the menus themselves are fairly similar. The food is fine, it's not going to win any awards for cuisine but it was fine for us for a week, we ate well. There's also a large well stocked super market on site.

There's a great mix of beaches, some very quiet and simple, others with slides and activities. There's also some nice safe bays for swimming with platforms to swim out to and sunbathe on. There's a volley ball area, kids play area, several beach bars and a marina. It's very well done. There's also a large pool area with a mix of kids and adult pools, the pools are all salt water.

The main downside was the lack of sunloungers and shade - the guests were 80% german and unfortunately the stereotype seemed true, you had to be at the beach by 7 if you were to bagsy a sunlounger and parasol, and I was surprised that around the pool there was no shaded area - you need to like the sun here!

There were activities and entertainment if you wanted to find them, but it wasn't in your face, they tended to focus on a different restaurant each evening, so if organised entertainment isn't your thing, you could easily avoid it.

You could walk for a good hour around the resort along the coast line - this really is a very well appointed resort and there was always something to do, or you could easily lie by the pool all day and do very little!

Naturism here is the norm from dawn to dusk, the only place you really need to cover up for is reception and the supermarket. You don't need to dress for the restaurants during the day, although most people do in the evening. Naturism is compulsory on the beach and by the pool, and most people don't dress to walk around the resort, although some do. Its' really quite laid back and you can do what you like.

This was a great simple holiday. Perfect for a relaxing sunny escape and great for anyone with kids who were well catered for.

We spent a week in Valalta as part of our family trek through Europe in the summer of 2005. In these days when European travel is all but prohibitively expensive, we found Croatia to be an affordable and enticing option - yet a wonderful venue who those who are fond of basking in the sun.

Not really a hotel, Valalta is actually a series of campgrounds and self-catering 'villas' of varied sizes that should meet just about anyone's accommodation needs. The villas are simple, clean, and well equipped - though it may still feel a bit like roughing it if you're accustomed to places donning names like Sheraton and Hyatt on the facade.

The grounds are absolutely sprawling, with a rocky coastline that skirts around a series of small bays that are perfect for swimming or paddling around on a rubber raft. There is a large pool complex (Salt water pools!), several restaurants, and even a private marina.

As advertised, Valalta is a naturist resort in the true European sense of the word, though nudity is only compulsory at the beach and at the pool. Whether or not you choose to bare all when walking about the grounds is up to you, but one would need to tolerate others who choose to do so. This is a family resort in every definition of the word and our teenage children felt welcome and at ease, though a bit lonely as we were on the early side of the European holidays. (Third week of June.)

While a bit lackluster compared to the southern Croatian cities of Dubrovnik and Split, there is some excellent day tripping to be done from Valalta, not the least of which is nearby Rovinj. Though a lot smaller, the old town has a Venetian flavor, but completely lacking in both the crowds and the kitsch. And there are innumerable boat trips out to the surrounding islands that are well worth the trouble, if only for the boat ride alone.

We loved Valalta for the amenities, for the coastline, but mostly for the dry, warm climate and the option to maximize that potential. What's not to love?

  • Liked — The sparkling blue water - ALL the time!
  • Disliked — A little rustic by Western European standards
