We rented a "mobile home" which was some distance from the centre (which turned out to be a good thing, see below). It was clean and modern, and the cleaner brought new towels nearly every day which was more than we expected. The site is huge with at least 5 pools (unless I missed one), 3 in the main pool area, of which one is salt water, one baby one by a bar and another by a restaurant. As with much of Croatia, the coast is rocks and stones, though one area has some artificial sand/gravel. There are also concrete platforms with ladders for a stone free entry. If you are intending to touch the seabed at all, swimming shoes are strongly recommended. The bay has one area like a harbour where the sea is virtually flat, great for beginners, and another more open but still fairly sheltered. Both areas have platforms and inflatables scattered around, great for the kids. At least one of the bars has an area where young children can play in the water while parents can sit with their feet submerged and have a drink. Who could ask for better?

Bicycle hire is available, though expensive, useful with such a large site; Check the bike over before you set off as some areas are quite hilly, so working brakes gears are essential. And hold on to your map, the first few days we got lost several times!

The negatives? Some areas were quite noisy. Sitting in a bar by the sea should be a peaceful experience, not somewhere to get your ears blatted by loud music all day long. The main pool PA was quite loud too when the "animations" were in progress. Butlins, anyone? Despite the warnings, some people clearly did reserve loungers with their towels. One "gentleman" got quite ratty (when he turned up after an hour) to find we had placed ourselves in the shade near three loungers with his towel on it (he was alone).

Some have commented on the "clothes required" rule in the market. By trial and error, it seems a towel or wrap is good enough, though I don't know what horrors they expect naked people to get up to? Most visitors were definitely of the sunshine daylight naturist variety. One small cloud, or approaching dusk, and on went the clothes, jumpers, anoraks, etc. Why? Maybe it takes a Brit to appreciate the pleasure of walking or cycling naked in the dark or the rain (the air temperature was still 30 degrees by the way).

The staff were mixed, a few grumpy, most very pleasant. Maybe some get fed up with too many rude guests, especially towards the end of the season? If found that if I made the effort and chatted and smiled, it made all the difference. Come on you visitors, these people are human beings too and they have to make most of their living in the warmer months of the year!

All in all, definitely recommended. If you like small and personal, no, this might not be the place. But if you like space to move around in, a long coastline, crystal clear water, and an interesting small town nearby, give it a shot.

Room Tip: Keep away from the pools and bars if you like quiet

I've been here several times as it's kind of a unique place and could be really rather great. The accommodation is average rooms are small and not very well appointed, WiFi is available at extra charge. I have chosen half board and the food is good, plenty of choice even if it is pretty much the same every time. The place has had a lot of improvements over the years and it is a nice place to be. As my title says though the worst thing here is the staff, most of them give the impression they would rather be sold as slaves then work here, rude, unhelpful and miserable mostly, the odd person stands out as nice if your lucky to meet them, the reception staff are just as miserable. Definitely takes the edge off the stay, a friendly chatty staff member makes a whole lot of difference of this was a shop it would not sell much!!

Valalta naturist resort is without doubt the complete holiday experience for Naturist's. The complex is professionally managed, kept impeccably clean and caters for every need. The on-site restaurants serve an excellent variety of very tasty dishes or the on-site supermarket provides plenty of choice should you wish to self cater. The resort even has a brewery and bakery which is well worth sampling it's fair. There's an gym, swimming pools and much more. This is one destination not to be missed

This year we decided to change from Koversada to Valalta for animation, even if the pricing is higher. But the animation is really poor! For i.e. the football academy for young boys is not organized. The coach is not skilled. The are boys over 12 that dominate the play. In general the animators have not the right skills and the committment to conduct the activities. If you decide to come here for animation change your choose. Koversada has not animation, it is clear,but the camping is better and better. Less people, larger area. Better sea.

We are the first time at Valalta but not really satisfied. Our Mobile Home is okay but the cleaning does not met our expectations. And it’s far away to the beach as well as to the pool.
The campsite is really huge. A lot of long camper who reserve the best places at the beach for the whole time.
The campsite seems to be especially for Germans. With all the rules and regulations they love, e.g. the bathing rules (no playing allowed, walking along the pool prohibited, reserving loungers not allowed ...). The only funny thing is that nobody really cares. On sunny days you really need to go at 9 am to the pool to get a lounger. Half of the lounger are free all the time but reserved by a towel. Same at the beach.

The campsite is equipped quite well, e.g. free mini golf, table tennis and floatable water islands. But do you really need this? We for sure not. And that’s the reason why we will not come back again. This campsite was disappointing for us.
