The family-friendly Valamar Crystal counts a close-to-it-all setting, a relaxing pool set-up, and lots of things to do as highlights.
This place has clinched a seafront spot in a pine forest clearing. You can walk to the ragged shoreline in a few minutes, and the Roman town of Porec is just a bit further on.
The hotel is well geared up for families, with lots of activities and separate pools for children and adults. Décor is cool and contemporary – rooms come with beech furniture and brightly painted feature walls.

This hotel is in ideal spot about 15 min walk into Porec along the coast path which is a picturesque place if you have difficulty in walking there is a noddy train along the coast path which cost about 10 kuna. The beach area is manly stone slabs the sea is roped of for swimmingMore
Just came back after 2 weeks holiday at this amazing hotel. ..We couldn't belive how friendly the staff were from the cleaning ladies ( Stana) to the reception. Our room looked onto the pine forest and was a joy to open the balcony every morning and smell them . We were very impressed with the food in the restaurant as so many countries to cater for. Thank you so much for our holiday we loved being waited on sitting on the terrace around the pool and lounge area . We will definitely be back . More
Five Star 10 day holiday
A quality hotel in a beautiful location. Situated in pine wood with acres of space and five minutes from the sea.Lovely walks along the coast,and just 20 mins from Porec by foot. Get fit and hire a bike,not fit get one fitted with an electric motor. Enjoy Porec,lots of shops and cafes,take the ferry out to the island and have a walk around same. The Crystal was clean and tidy,nice rooms in good order.The staff were polite and efficient,always helpful. There are three hotels on this headland all in the same group.you can use the facilities of all three and charge to your account. Nice swimming pools with outdoor cafes,at night the entertainment takes place near or around the pool.The acts were good Nice bar and lounge area,drinks are a little more expensive than UK prices. A great choice at breakfast and we enjoyed the evening meals. We would go againMore
The Valamar chain has several hotels and resorts, with a focus on Istria. Like many other hotels, the Crystal is a Yugoslav-era building which had been re-furbished. Despite the architectural constraints of the time - narrow rooms, lots of visible concrete - it is now a modern, clean, nicely decorated hotel. Very close to the beach. Friendly and competent staff - most speak German and English fluently. Great breakfast buffet. Reasonably priced (but not inexpensive). Sadly, parking must be paid per day (3 Euro). 3 well maintained indoor tennis courts. Within walking distance to Porec old town. Well situated - if you have a car - to visit the nearby attractions of Istria. Altogether the Crystal is to be recommended for a short holiday.More
Great place to spend business weekend. Even better for vacation and relaxation. Friendly stuff, great breakfast and full cool sorrounding. Highly recomended. The place to returne to. Many times. But it is not working all year round.More
