this hotel has really exceed my expectations , first of all just to clarify for the budget I had and spend in Croatia , I was expecting to find a really bad hotel but not , I stayed in Croatia 3 days in pical from 22th September in room 247 the reception first impression was really impressive big ,shiny fair enough.Receptionist were polite , explaining everything and showing the hotel around and give us a welcome with and amazing cold plate filled with ham,cheese,fruits and vegetables , so amazed .it is true that when you are going to the rooms , the corridors seems a bit older even the room very ancient style could be a bit updated but for me was good enough , rooms was cleaned ,spacious with views to the beach ,big pool but couldn't use it due to the weather conditions but my 10/10 stars if for the restaurant really range of food variety breakfast is really complete and chefs they are all kind ,three days eating during the evening and all of them really different and delicious food.well done to the restaurant I am coming from London and I can say not even in the restaurants contains as much good food as the pical sunny hotel does . thank you very much for all. great stay

This hotel is closing next week to be demolished and replaced. However this is no excuse to let guests down.food not as good, cleaning of room not very good, no snack bar lunch time just a roll, no diet or Coke Zero and no decent tea.

Hotel Is huge. Great big pool but freezing. Great location only 5 mins from Rocky beach. Food - to be honest I was disappointed. Read great reviews about the food but just couldn’t see it. Not many options for vegetarians although to be fair they provided a breakfast to take away on the last day as we missed breakfast. Did not provide you with even tap water during evening meal. Found this very poor. If all else fails there is always pizza which was good. Went on a fish picnic trip they called “grill and chill’ this was amazing for the money (£28 per person) which included lunch -again vegetarian option was rubbish. Stopped at a place called Rovinj which was amazing. Had 2 hours there but needed more. Be careful in the sea - saw literally hundreds of jellyfish! Now back to hotel- the room was horrible very 1970’s and smelt very musty. Long corridor to swimming pool very dark and long like something out of the shining. Corridor area by rooms like a prison (see photos). Have added photos of Rovinj.

Just arrived home from pical sunny and WOW what a lovely hotel. Yes its a 2 star but this is mainly for cosmetic reasons as its slightly dated. Our opinion is you cant knock it for the money the rooms are lovely with most looking over magnificent views over the sea and porec old town. Only 4 minutes stroll to the pebbly beach which is spotless and 15 minute stroll into porec old town which is a lovely walk. The hotel is spotless all the staff are lovely but the main plus was the food. WOW a 2 star hotel that serves 4 star food my girlfriend is vegetarian and can struggle with food abroad but in the pical the food was immense we never ate out once and i as a non vegetarian was blown away with the variety and quality. If i was to be picky the hotel is dated and that is it but it didnt bother us as everything else is top notch and we would definately go back. Thankyou pical sunny weve had a lovely week. Ps the food pics are just my missus vegetarian meals my meat dishes were immense usually usually getting up for 4 platefuls lol. Thanks again pical sunny.

Location is the best over looking the porec beach. Dinner and breakfast twas good just the room and balcony is a bit old and the balcony on our room is not safe with our toddlers with a big gap in both corners. For 2 star hotel is better. When we come on our room we didnt expect that Didnt clean it maybe the cleaning lady missed to clean the toilet bowl poop on it we tried to flush it but didnt flush it. I think someone come in and used the room a bit and decide to move out on that room then nobody check it before they put us in. But reception did a good job she take care the issue really well.

This is a two-star hotel in an excellent location, but do not expect much in terms of room quality and services. Pros: - excellent buffet for breakfast and dinner, great choice of food - great location with a nice beach area with lots of activities - a very basic outdoor pool Cons: - the hotel is very dated - the rooms and the whole hotel is in desperate need of renovation and an update - the staff could be friendlier

Excellent job to the team of the hotel. Very clean and neat. Not far from the center. Good food for very suitable price. Enjoy this wonderful vintage style. It is a very nice place for family and friends vacations. Sport equipment and surfaces are a great shape for your outdoor activities. Beach is only hundred meters away. The hotel has the restaurant at the beach. It's top live music and activities for kids near by.

I was there with my friend and we had breakfast and dinner, which both were really delicious and also the selection was really big! Rooms and balcony maybe are a bit older, but still very clean - also the bathroom! So, for that low price we were really satisfied and also the staff at the recepcion and in coffee bar was so nice, so friendly and helpful! Deffinitly we will come back! I trully recomend this place for low budget trip!

When I arrived I was given a room over looking Porec and the sea Room was fantastic, very clean and what a view. As it was my first solo holiday after losing my wife I was a bit apprehensive but Hotel was in a good position for walks. Reception staff were very helpful. Food at breakfast and evening was very good with plenty of choices. I spent every evening in the lounge bar extension. The only thing missing were English speaking people so i sat on my own. All in all it was an enjoyable holiday, bit lonely but the view from my balcony was fantastic. Would I return? Not made my mind up on that yet

Sadly no air conditioning in this hotel in rooms and it was a bit hot. The pool was fab as it was sea water but as the hotel was old the lifts were a nightmare and room cleaning not really up to scratch. The staff were wonderful and very friendly but the WiFi was a nightmare. Would only work in the hotel lobby.
