Depressing Communist era hotelPosted Sep 11, 2012
While clean, this hotel is very old...communist era building and decor. No A/C, shower didn't drain well so you were always standing in a couple of inches of water. Food was decent. Front desk staff member-name escapes me-was very competent and went out of his way to be helpful. Beds were tiny, rooms and bathroom very small. Rather depressing place and not a good value for the price we paid.

Easter at the PicalPosted Apr 29, 2012 on Hotels.com
The hotel is set in lovely gardens then lead to a pebble beach with coastal paths and steps into the sea. The room, with balcony, was well furnished and very clean although a bit small. The hotel provided live music in the lobby bar most nights with different bands playing a variety of music. The hotel provides half board and the food is buffet style with a great selection of well cooked food. The town of Porec is within walking distance from the hotel but there is a small train that goes into town every hour. Although the town is small there are many cafes and restaurants and enjoyable walks around the harbour and water front. There are several tours available from Porec as well as a ferry to Venice, but not all operate in early April. All in all I would recommend this hotel to friends and family and would certainly return if I have the opportunity.

Hotel Pical, Porec, CroatiaPosted Apr 13, 2012 on Hotels.com
The hotel is located within walking distance to the town of Porec. While the rooms are a little small they are well furnished and very clean. The hotel offers half board buffet style meals which are very good. The buffet counters surround staff who are continually cooking the dishes of the day to top up the buffet. A great variety is available. There is live music in the bar on most nights. There is a swimming pool and tennis courts at the hotel and lovely coastal walks just out side of the hotel grounds. From the town there are buses to other towns and to Italy. There are also several sightseeing trips available (but not all in early April). I would recommend this hotel.

value for moneyPosted Aug 1, 2010 on Hotels.com
it is 3 star hotel, in a good place, 3-4 minutes away from the beach. Food in the hotel was so so pluc u will need to buy all drinks (even still water) for ur own money, in spiteof the fact that u already paid for the food(( Will not recomend it for young people, no clubs near by.

the best service for the price!Posted Apr 14, 2009 on Hotels.com
The hotels near Porec downtown have been quite pricy during the time of my travel while apartments are usually at the outskirt. Hotel Pical will definitely be your choice as a balance between price and location - Only 1km walk along the beach to the city center. The buffet breakfast and evening meal were of great variety. It's not difficult to get a room with either seaview or garden view at your balcony at a reasonable price. The best of all is the service of the staff!! Will definitely go there again if I go back to Porec in the future.

Very pleasant hotelPosted Oct 3, 2008
Hotel Pical was very well run and the staff were very hepful and friendly.The buffet type meals were excellant including the free drinks.It is in a very quite pleasant position close to the sea and approx. 20minutes stroll to Porec.I think the bedrooms and balconies could do with an update although they were kept very clean.The bathroom was very modern.The evening entertainment was OK.We would return to this hotel but perhaps earlier in the year.We visited in September and it felt like the end of the season in the resort.

Will definately returnPosted Aug 20, 2008
When booking this reservation, I thought the price was a bit high. After getting to the hotel and seeing everything they had to offer including Breakfast and Dinner included in the price, I feel as though I got my moneys worth. The staff was very friendly. The location superb, within walking distance to the center of Porec. I was very satisfied and can't wait to go back and bring my 2 teenage kids. They will love it.

Great buffet dinner!Posted Aug 8, 2008
Although rather dated from the outside, the hotel was spacious and efficient. About a 15 minute walk into the old town and action. Pool was nice. Buffet food was surprisingly good - avoid the wine though! Recommend hiring a fan as heat made sleeping difficult.

Lovely time, friendly staffPosted Sep 8, 2007
we arrived at night, so didnt really get to see the hotel til the morning. first impressions were good. the staff are extremely helpful and speak excellent english, our croatian was limited to please and thank you(bok and hvala). our room was v. large as we ended up with a 3 bed room which had a limited sea view. the rooms were a little basic but the bathroom was brand new and v. clean with plenty of clean towels. we stayed on a HB basis and we couldnt fault the food, it was fabulous. we both put on weight because we went back for seconds!! we would recommend this hotel v. highly but if we went back we would choose one in old porec because its a little bit too far to stagger back from a night out with heels on! everything stops in the hotel at 12am but at least you can get to sleep as there isnt constant noise but if you fancy a nightcap , ask the staff for a bucket of ice to take back to your room.

Very good hotelPosted Jul 15, 2007
Stayed here for four days in early July 2007. Rooms were decent sized - especially as I had booked a single room and found 2 twin beds in there!! Choice of food in the buffets was very good, especially in the evenings when you are able to help yourself to decent local beer and wines and also soft drinks. Very handily located - just a 10 minute walk from the old town of Porec.
