With its seaside setting, pine-edged pool and serene atmosphere, the Hotel Pical makes a really relaxing retreat.
Thanks to its pine forest locale, the Pical Hotel has a miles-from-anywhere feel – and yet it’s next to a beach and just a 20-minute walk from the old town of Porec.
Modern art murals decorate the restaurants, and the pool areas are stylishly streamlined. The rooms, however, are a more homely affair, with patterned bedspreads and cosy balconies.

Positives out number negatives!!
Just returned from a truly lovely holiday at the hotel pical in porec. Just 2 hours 15 mins and we were transported to porec, Croatia. After initial rain the weather was sunny and was hotter day by day. I would say the hotel pical had positives and negatives - staff excellent, food excellent, location excellent, beds excellent, hot showers excellent, lovely sea views. However there are negAtives -the carpets in the communal areas and rooms is so, so old it is unbelievable and the balconies are unsafe for children and appear not to get cleaned, the stairway area resembles an prison interior which is very depressing! Some work was being undertaken on the promenade immediately by the hotel which perhaps spoilt the view. That having said the bay and the little pretty town of porec was a delight. We would definitely recommend a visit to the unesco rated basilica and the boat trip fish picnic. The coastline is truly beautiful and you should take advantage of bike hire and organised trips. Also the sunsets are gorgeous. Supermarkets are cheap and you can have cheap lunches using the local bakery shops - I recommend the Burke a pastry meat or cheese - fantastic. Once agAin my overall impression is gorgeous country and gorgeous people- we would definitely return.More

QUIRKY in a good way, built in 1970's
Ro0m 327 basic, wonderful sea view, but............. . Bathroom: bath very high, problem for those with mobility problems -eg difficult to get into bath almost impossible to get out Shower - needed repair - Reported to reception - 6 days to fix. fixed on our penultimate day of holiday! MAJOR PROBLEMS during our visit Hotel Pical 'Beach' - Building works on-going for 5/6 working days. Result : noise pollution in the area/plus Hotel Pical swimming pool area. Health & Safety - be careful! especially at night. Take a torch. When will it be completed: GOK THE GOOD Breakfast/Dinner - well presented, much choice. Breakfast - do not eat doughnuts if you want to stay slim - too good\!. staff- great POOL - great. - good size for serious swimmers or otherwise ENTERTAINMENT - DAY TIME - Hotel Zagreb - see the schedule of animation team - aquarobics @ 11.30etc EVENING ENTERTAINMENT - In Pical on some nights, if not you can choose to go to other Valamar Hotels nearby Sometimes goodish - or hilariously bad VISITING POREC - for those with mobility probs. Tourist train - from Hotel Pical into Porec. every half hour. If you want to travel further go to Marina & on to tourist train to Zelena Luguna If you want to swim safely - there is a little sandy beach near Pical - orgo to Island Sveti Nicolai - cross from Porec Marina every 30 mins cost kuna 90 return . sandy beach etc. but do explore this island beautiful We only did one organised trip out - Fish picnic . on boat San Mauro - great Exploring Porec - please do not miss the Basilica - 3 hours minto do it justice. Enjoy the town of PorecMore
Short Trip to Porec
Positiv is the food, its good, even if you are not allowed to take a single apple out of the dinning room which is rather annoying and i dont understand it at all. No wlan in the rooms, just a crappy line in the lobby- hey its 2017, wake up!!! The location is nice, close to the town. Outside a nice park and beach bars, they are nice but this pro. does not belong to the hotel! Downside is really the ratio between price and room quality. The hotel is old, very much used and needs more than just a new painting. In this price category you can get much better hotels! In total i will not stay here again a single night and I strongly recommend taking a 5-10 euro more expensive hotel nearby where you get a better stay and relax.More
Nice location, great food
Old fashioned hotel with very nice pool. The best thing is certanly the food, it is really tasteful with many choices. Also, this hotel is located near the sea and the little train that goes to the town centre stop in front of hotel. Town center is 10mins walk away.More
