Hotel Valamar Riviera is open in spring 2010. It is a nice and cosy hotel, conveniently located at Porec seaside promenade. Hotel overlooks the town yacht harbor and St. Nicolas Island. It is located at the most beautiful part of the old town Porec, by the sea, amidst nice restaurants and bars. Hotel is just steps away from Old town Porec Main Street. In Frank’s opinion, Hotel Valamar Rivier is by far the best Porec hotel for couples. It is perfectly located if you love summer hustle and bustle of the seaside town.
