Reviewed 16 June 2013

Booked 4 day break with Thomson. Hotel was really lovely with nice modern rooms. The pool area was good plenty of sun beds with card system for daily pool towels, you don't need to bring any. The food was good plenty of choice. The dining room was busier at the start a bit noisy & crowded but if you went about 8 it was quieter but with still plenty of selection. The location & Croatia was amazing really close to the sea & some good local bars & restaurants. Porec was beautiful a nice 15 min walk with lots to see & do. We hired bikes on 2 of the days from the sports centre by the sea & followed coastal paths the routes were great. We had a fantastic 4days & would come back to Porec & the Valamar Crystal

Dear guest,
thank you for taking time and writing such a nice comment. The quality and variety of our food in the hotel restaurant is something we are really proud of, and it is refilled during all the meal time so we can satisfy all our guests. It makes me very happy to see that you enjoyed your overall stay in our hotel and in the local area. As you said Porec, together with its many sightseeing attractions, cafes and restaurants is for sure a great city for vacation. Hope to see you soon again.
Best regards from Valamar Crystal.

Really loved this hotel. Staff were well spoken and could not do more for you. We had a big room overlooking the gardens. The food was fantastic and the prices in the restaurant and bar were very reasonable. Just a short walk into Porec to do some shopping or have a change of scene at night. It wasn't just this hotel but everywhere we went in Croatia we found everyone wanted to help us and the country is so clean and beautiful and also felt so safe. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone

hey say you should never go back the same place the next year as you will be disappointed. They are wrong. The hotel,food and staff were just the same and in some aspects much better.
Have included a few photos of our May 2013 trip. See last year for more details and photos in and around the hotel. You will fine more photos on Croatia trips @ www.bpbsearle.net.
Although our second year we have only scratched the surface of Croatia.

Spotlessly clean hotel with terrific staff and excellent staff. The food was very good and the restaurant was nice and spacious. The location was perfect, for us, being a pleasant short walk from the delights of Porec, and set in the pine woods. The pool was large and heated at the time we visited. The room was basic but modern and clean as was the bathroom. However, there was no tea/coffee making facilities in the room, so take your own travel kettle if you like an early morning cuppa. We also had a really good trip to Venice. I can highly recommend the Valamar Crystal and will stay there again.

Have just got back from my 2nd holiday at this hotel - went with Leger again.
Wasn't sure if it would be as good as last time (September 2012) but it was.
Food still great - tried small portions of lots of different things at breakfast & in the evening.
On a couple of days I had a sandwich in the bar & also treated myself to coffee & cake in the afternoon. Great cakes & very large portions - definately no complaints from me though I think my waistline expanded a little over the week.
As last year the hotel was very clean & the room was spacious - I even had a balcony this year.
The staff were all great - polite, friendly & very helpful.
I was not in the best of health this year so used the little tourist train to get about - only 10 Kuna to Porec.
Although this was my 2nd visit I would definately consider going again - I would like to try a boat trip along the coast next time. When I was in Porec the prices for a day trip with lunch included seemed very reasonable.

Dear guest,
thank you for your great comment and the trust you gave us by being our guest for the second time. Our food offer is something we are really proud of, and we are happy you enjoyed every single meal, and our great lobby cakes supply. As you noticed, there are many ways to visit Poreč; by boat, touristic train, bus, car, bike and there is a wonderful stroll directly from our hotel to the center.
Hope to see you again.
Kind regards! Hotel Valamar Crystal.

traveled with thompson on a 4 day break to this hotel on may 7th. just what we looking for peace and quite. very impressed with food and friendlyness of staff the weather could have been better but we still found things to do in the day. took a boat trip on the one day which was good as it was the only day the sun really shined. on overcast days we played crazy golf near hotel or we walked through the forest area to town which had lots to look at. there is a little train which you can take if your feeling lazy i have to confess i did do this once.our rooms were very clean and well presented and the whole of the hotel was spotless.the only thing i can fault was the lack of evening entertainment had a singer one night but maybe because it was early season and we were not there for the weekend.all in all a lovley break and well done to valamar crystal

Room Tip: take a travel kettle for room if you want a early cuppa

A fantastic Hotel set in Pine woods with a 20 minute walk to the old town via a foot/cycle path along the beautiful coastline. The food in the self service restaurant is excellent and the actual accomadation also very good. The first hour for evening meal can gat very busy with young families, but overal food can be enjoyed in very pleasent surroundings. The Hotel staff are polite and friendly and speak excellent English.

Room Tip: excellent view from the 5th floor front or rear-this is the final floor with outside balcony
