Pical hotel has its advantages and its disadvantages. Overall, the hotel might be a bit boring, but for the price and location, it's a good deal. What counts up, is the very fine buffet: breakfast, lunch and dinner. Chefs prepare the fresh food on site, and there are many delicious dishes to choose from. (TIP: order a lunchbox instead of...

No air con. Decor 1960's shabby, very gloomy. Not suitable for disabled people, too many steps, no walk in showers, beds very low, 30steps to the restuarant accompanied by ants and cock roaches. Definitely not suitable for anyone with disabilities. Food was very basic, take your own. Needed to buy food out as hotel food was not suitable. No entertainment,... More

But its positive points outweigh what is negative + good location + friendly staff and friendly atmosphere + excellent food + nice beach just 50 meters from the hotel + nice view over Porec + WIFI only in the reception, which meant that I actually read...

We are entering a hall where were 2 wardrobes and a desk, and on the left there was the bathroom entrance. In front we enter... More

My first impressions of this hotel on arrival were the worst I can recall. Whilst the interior public areas have had some refurbishment the basic structure of the hotel and it's surrounding grounds are in a state of decay. The room had no air conditioning so we had to sleep with the wooden door to the balcony open all night.... More

Overall an excellent hotel,although still more in 70s style.Corridors above ground level had badly worn carpets.Only 2 out of 3 elevators working.All activities shared between nearby hotels in same Valamar chain.Beds too near floor,television old style box set but well working.Very good walk to Porec along the seafront could only say that I would like to return soon as.

We have just returned from a 10 day early break in Porec Croatia staying at the Pical hotel. We had read previous comments regarding the dated interior of this hotel but decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed with our choice. Whilst the rooms and corridors do need an update, they were clean and had everything you... More
