This place gives you a choice of 2 lagoon pools, and it’s just a short walk to the beach.
Location-wise, this place is pretty central. You only have to cross a main road, walk for a few minutes and you’re at the beach, while it’s less than a 5-minute walk to C’an Picafort’s shops, bars and restaurants.
The hotel has 2 lagoon pools, and children get a little splash park, too. Elsewhere, there are 2 restaurants – including an Italian bistro – and a chic rooftop bar for after-dinner cocktails.

Excellent facilities. Would recommend.
Stayed at this hotel between the 12th and 19th of August with my girlfriend. Had a fantastic holiday even though it rained for 2 days! Hotel was excellent. Room was nice and tidy, had a nice big widescreen TV with plenty of channels in a lot of different languages. The only complaints that I would have about the room is that the double bed was two singles pushed together and the water in the shower drained slowly. Free Wi-Fi would have been a bonus, but we didn't really mind. The facilities at the hotel are superb. Outdoor swimming pools were excellent. There are plenty of sun-loungers for everybody, no need to reserve them. The indoor wellness centre and spa were also great, especially if the weather isn't favorable. We went to the spa 3 times and enjoyed the variety of facilities on offer (all included in the price of the stay) as well as clean towels each time we went. We played tennis and mini golf as well which was also free. The food at the restaurant was good. Plenty of choice, even for fussy eaters like us. Plenty of space to sit as well. We didn't have to queue once. We frequented the poolside bar daily and the food was great and very reasonable. Freshly made paella for less than 6 euro! The barstaff are very friendly and work very hard! They seemed to be working in the poolside bar, rooftop bar and the restaurant! We enjoyed the rooftop bar and the great choice of cocktails. Also lovely views of the sunset from the rooftop bar. Location is good, not far from shops, beach etc. We didn't venture out of the hotel complex that often as the complex has nearly everything that you need! Would definitely stay again and recommend to others. All the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Well done Grupotel!More

Cant rate this hotel highly enough! We stayed in an 1 bedroomed appartment and it was very roomy and decorated to a good standard, I emailed the hotel about a month before and asked for a pool view room and although they did say they couldnt promise, they still managed to ablige. The garden pool is fabulous, Its safe for children as it is shallow in many places and you never have to get up early to reserve a sunbed. Also with all the trees scattered about theres no need for umberellas as there is shade if you want it. No one reserves sunbeds with towels (which is a major problem in most hotels) We went to the beach one morning returning after lunch and still got 4 sunbeds no problem. The only time i saw sunbeds left with towels on were during the day when people were having lunch etc. The staff are very friendly and helpful,especially when my little boy was ill, they had a doctor to our room within the hour!! We didnt see the evening entertainment because the stage is indoors so we frequented the rooftop bar. This is wonderful and the staff (who had memorised all our drinks within 2 days!!) Were very attentive. Be aware that they do request you wear long trousers and shoes for dinner. We had to go out and buy a pair of linen trousers for my husband as he hadnt brought any. We didnt mind though, if they request this to keep the standard of the hotel up, then im happy to ablige. Although you do obviously get the odd few who think the rules dont apply to them! Keep up the good work, its a lovely hotel and we had a fab holiday!More
Good hotel and facilities
After poor start with a disappointing room - first floor view of the restaurant roof, we found our 7 day stay at the Gran Vista to be relaxing and very good value. A few days later we were offered a new room on the 4th floor with a fantastic view of the sea and mountains beyond. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, rooms were basic but clean and there was a good atmosphere. Very impressed with the swimming pools and garden area - we had no problem getting a sun lounger and although the garden was busy, it was always possible to find shade. It was nice to have a 'pool' towel, which was changed every few days. Although the buffet was busy, especially early evening, we were most impressed with the huge variety of food on offer. Drinks seemed reasonably priced too. The beach, shops and bars are a short distance from the hotel so the location is ideal. The local bus stop is very handy too. Was surprised that for a Thomson Platinum hotel there was not free wifi in the rooms, the wifi at the pool bar was ok but very slow and restricted to opening hours. Would certainly go back.More

Great hotel, great location.
We had a lovely 2 weeks at the Gran Vista. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and worked hard. Yes it is 90% German holiday makers but they were friendly, most spoke English and the atmosphere was nicer than some hotels we have been in with 100% English holiday makers! Room was adequate for 2 adults and a teenager although cosy. Air-con was not very effective but we just slept with the balcony door open. Beds were comfortable and towels a decent size. Shower nice and powerful but beware the water temperature does fluctuate. Fridge was handy, safe was worth paying for and we asked for a kettle which was no problem. Didn't use it much as it was too hot for coffee! Pools were clean and water was refreshing. Plenty of activities if you wanted to participate but there was no pestering if you just wanted to relax. Sun loungers were always available but the ones around the top pool were the most popular. Pool towels from the spa could be changed 3 times a week. We never used the spa but heard others comment that it was nice and treatments were good. We were half- board and mealtimes were very busy. Breakfast was ok but dinner was not always to our personal taste. There was always plenty of salad and fruit but we think the food was catered more to the German taste. Also previous reviews had mentioned how great the food was so maybe we were expecting too much!! We would go again but on a bed and breakfast option if it was available. Bistro for lunch was fantastic and the Thursday evening BBQ was really good( although you have to pay extra for this). Rooftop bar was a great location for a drink but we preferred the bars on the beachfront, just 5 - 10 mins walk depending on which bar you wanted. We were lucky enough to have a welcome meeting but didn't see the thomson rep after that. Go on the Ting Ting train around Can Picafort, it's worth it. Also Rancho Grande evening tripMore

Jo F-R Perfect in every way
I can't recommend this hotel enough it was absolutely perfect. Spotlessly clean from top to bottom, every member of staff was so happy, polite and always ready to help. When we pulled up outside other holiday makers on the coach gasped, it was like arriving at a Beverly hills property. Although the hotel is large it never felt cramped there was so much space inside and out around the many pools. The roof top bar is breath taking and became a regular stop off before dinner every evening. Talking of dinner the food was out of this world, the choice was huge, as was I on our return. The brochure indicates you have to cross a busy road to head for the beach! it wasn't bust at all and we never had to wait to cross as there were zebra crossings. Beautiful hotel, beautiful resort, beautiful people. We would go back tomorrow. You want regret booking this hotel.More
