  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

I can't comment on the hotel itself because I didn't get to stay there. I showed up at this hotel after another Valamar property in the center of town didn't have the room available that I booked. Hotels.com rebooked me here. When I arrived, the front desk told me they didn't know why hotels.com booked me there as they only had a room for 1 night, not 2. The suggestion was to just see if they could put me somewhere else in the morning. I had them move me to yet a 3rd Valamar property that could accommodate me for both nights. It was a pretty terrible experience and I won't stay at a Valamar property any time soon.

Stayed 2 nights in Jul 2018

I was disappointed in my stay at the Crystal. The room was large but the bedding and bath linens were not of 4 star quality. Had problems with pre-paid reservation. It showed up as not having been paid. This was at check in but it was not corrected 3 days later at check out! Food was plentiful but not as good as it could have been. The mattress was terrible and the pillows were "dead". Some water damage in the bathroom (rm 220). Overall the staff was courteous and pleasant. I will look for alternatives the next time I visit Porec.

4/5 Good

Good hotel in extensive grounds

We had a good stay at this comfortable hotel. Arrived at 11 am but check-in not available until 2 pm, so had to find something to do for 3 hrs (walked to the beach and took lunch at local bar). Porec is a 30 minute walk but for those less able there is a land train costing approx £1 each way. Our room was very clean with plenty of room for three of us. Hotel is secluded and has good facilities - pool, bar, grounds. Entertainment in the evening is not a strong point. Staff were very attentive, helpful and friendly. Restaurant served good breakfasts and in the evenings a good selection of salads, fish dishes, main meals and desserts. Porec is a lovely town with many shops and restaurants and a busy harbour ie boat tours, fishing trips etc.

Pros: Its position, the pool facilities, its cleanliness and the friendly, efficient, helpful staff.

Cons: Evening entertainment was weak

Location: Hotel has lovely grounds, a park and beach nearby. Porec 30 mins walk has lots of shops and restaurants. Lots of boat trips/cycling/walking available

Lovely hotel

We had a lovely time at the Valamar Crystal. It is a 20-25 minute walk along the sea front to Porec. The food was excellent with buffets to suit all tastes. The pool and other facilities were very good and the service was excellent. the room was very comfortable and clean.

4/5 Good

Pleasant stay overall

Overall a really nice hotel with good facilities and (buffet) food as well as friendly and helpful staff. I suppose given the location and other Valamar hotels nextdoor, the area could be considered a "resort". The hotel is marketed as 4 star, but I would give the room 3 max. Just about every activity / amenity incurred additional expense. We were booked half board - after finding out what those costs were and considering the above, we came away feeling our stay was overpriced - even though we enjoyed ourselves.
