My partner and I stayed at the Hotel Pical from the 10th to 24th July 2012. then again 9th July to 23rd 2013 and are returning there this year. Before I start the review proper I would like to add a bit about what you should (or should not expect.) We have been to many 4 star hotels in Europe... More

Had a great holiday here in September, despite the storms! Which were spectacular to watch from our sea view room, even a small tornado in the bay. Yes the rooms are a bit tired but everyone says that so didn't expect any different! The hotel was very clean, food was great, staff very helpful and friendly. Located in a fantastic... More

Building itself is rather tired looking ~ But hotel stay itself was very relaxing. Lovely local walks, close to beach and lots of activities going on at the beach for those who don't want to stray far. A lovely place for all ages.

Stayed at the Pical for 10 nights, the staff and food were exceptional, but the hotel is badly in need of refurbishment. The communal areas, that being the restaurant, poolside eatery, reception area and bar are spotlessly clean but the rest of the hotel ie :- the bedrooms and hallways let this hotel down badly ( plus no air conditioning...

The best things about this hotel were the food, which was excellent, the staff, also excellent and the location, again very,very good. The reason for it's 3* rating is surely the unappealing look of the place both inside and out. We were really disappointed with our room. It was very small and outdated. However we could not fault the cleanliness.... More

Just back (28th Sept) from 2 weeks in Porec staying at the Pical. A bit of cloud the first 2 days but after that it was sun all the way. Can't fault the hotel or any of the staff - all were excellent. Food was of top quality throughout the 2 weeks with something different every night. The room was... More

Like most hotels in this part of Croatia, the exterior of the Pical (pronounced Pitsal) hotel is an unappealing concrete block constructed when the old Yugoslavia was a Communist country. Obviously the staff have to work around this, and do their best to make your stay a pleasant one. The interior is somewhat unusual as other reviewers have described, as... More

We stayed at this hotel during the first week of June 2013. It was a mini moon for us which was very reasonably priced. Following our wedding we just wanted to chill out, eat nice food and relax and that is exactly what we received from this hotel. We felt the rating of 3* hotel is spot-on for this hotel.... More

Just browsing the net looking to book next years holiday...and although I have just come back from Tenerife I thought why not look at Croatia/Montenegro as I'd been 20+ years before and loved the country (Yugoslavia as was) as a whole. Shame, as the hotel in Montenegro seems to have gone...but surprisingly the Pical is still standing. As mentioned, it's... More

We had to sleep keeping the door open, too hot and no air conditioning. They rent us (we paid for it!) a dirty old fan to survive. We couldn't open the drawers, the bed was too close. On the other hand, the hotel is in an excellent position. Superb view, salt-water swimming pool, nice beach near pine trees, fantastic breakfast.
