We stayed from the 21st May to 4th June and we were disappointed. The rooms were OK but the window and door to the balcony had paint peeling off it and the door did not fit making it very draughty. The weather was not very good, it rained a couple of days and it was cold especially in the room. The bath is very small with very high sides so it is difficult to get in and out.
The food was not as good as before and in quite a small area. There were several coaches of people in at one time which made it very difficult to get to the food. The desserts were very boring and not very good. Rice, semolina or fruit in small glasses, tiny pieces of gateau and ice cream every day. Breakfast was good.
We paid for a safe which is in a locked room behind reception. They are more like lockers than safes. The reception staff just gave you the key without checking you had a safe and when we went there one night and asked for the key they said someone was already in the room, when we looked there was no-one there but the door was open with the key in the lock - not very good security.
We went to Rovinj for the day which was really nice and also the trip to Kastav and Opatija which was very good with a very nice guide. In Opatija you can go in the hotels (we went to the one with Cafe Wagner) and have coffee and cake for about £8. We went with Thomson as their trips are the same as in the town.
We love Croatia and have been there 6 times, the last time we stayed at the Pical was 2010 but we would not stay there again.
If you want nice coffee and gorgeous cakes in Porec go the The Cafe del Mar it is very reasonable and the Peach Bellini was heaven.
