We initially visited The Pical the first year it was opened in the 70's then it was rated as a 5 * Hotel, it then lived up to this rating in every aspect with individual table waiter service for every table in the dining room. The country was then Yugoslavia and labour was cheap and the hotel was overflowing with staff.We decided to go down memory lane and revisit the Pical this year.The Picall is now rated as a 3* Hotel and priced very reasonably by most of the hotel agencies, externally it now appears dated with its pre-formed concrete construction, the external garden and parking areas are however all well maintained and presented. The rooms are in need of updating and could do with some TLC, however they were clean, serviced every day with new towels supplied, The communal areas had been re-decorated and updated. One could not fault the service levels in all areas within the Pical and we found that all the staff there were friendly and very helpful.We were pleased to find that the food, now from a buffet was still excellent and of a very high standard, far better than that offered in many other 4* Hotels.that we have experienced.The coastline here is fantastic and the water is crystal clear and full of fish that one can see by skin diving off the rocks.One can walk into the very beautiful town of Porec which has many small bars, restaurants and shops along the sea front in about 15 mins or alternatively catch the little motorised train that runs along the front terminating at the small car park on the out skirts of Porec, the train has a very frequent service with a train stop just to the front of the hotel.
I would recommend the Hotel Pical as a very good value for money hotel with excellent standards to anyone considering a vacation in this lovely area of Croatia.
