Valamar Hotel Crystal: What a great place to stay, with out doubt one of the best hotels we have stayed in for the following reasons. Overall feel & look of hotel. 100% Staff 100% Rooms 100% Hotel grounds and pool 100% Plus Food 100% With regards to the eating area and the way the food is laid out, beats a lot of 5 star plus hotels and all the staff, both waiting and serving are very attentive. Now I am a fussy eater, being I'm allergic to many foods, but with the choice they have for all meals is outstanding. Plenty to eat with lots of variety. The hotel complex: Just 5 mins stroll to the beach areas and another 10 mins to Porec, Amazing views, coves to sunbath/swim or just relax after your big meals.
