This place gives you a choice of two 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 two lagoon pools, and children get a little splash park, too. Elsewhere, there are two restaurants – including an Italian bistro – and a chic rooftop bar for after-dinner cocktails.

We have just returned from a generally very enjoyable stay at this hotel. The highlights of our holiday were the spacious and clean apartments (with fridge/kitchen/British TV incl BBC, itv, itv2, itv4, channel 5 & 5*), the quality and choice of food, Al-fresco dining area, the wonderful panoramic rooftop bar with fabulous views and cocktails approx â¬6,40, scenery and upkeep of the garden areas, and the amazing spa and gym (entry free of charge).
Some minor things could be improved which would have made our stay and review of the hotel better.
Access to the Wi-Fi cost â¬15 a week and whilst it was of reasonable strength, you could only have 1 device connected at a time which did become frustrating.
We enjoyed playing the free table tennis and mini-golf although the facilities could do with some renovation as they looked a bit rundown. The majority of sun beds were nice with adjustable backs (but still some basic ones) and there were plenty however we did find the forbidden sun bed reservation policy was not enforced by the hotel. Consequently there was a problem with many sun beds and parasols being reserved in the best locations despite there being no sign of their occupants until later in the day, on one occasion 11.30am when reserved at 07.30am.
We did not take part in the hotel organised activities as we were very put off by the loud shrieking of the hotel reps (the females) that seemed suited to an 18-30 holiday in Ibiza. Some of the activities we observed around the poolside included games which were inappropriate (in our opinion), one such being 'Simon Says' organised for the youngsters (participants looked to be aged 5 - 12) where one of the reps (Maxi) shouted Simon Says Sex on the Beach and the youngsters would do the associated action. Further the music played at the pool party was incredibly loud and unsuited to the clientele. It did seem as though the hotel was perhaps trying to attract a different market than the families present and was catering to a real minority of guests.
The waiter service at the restaurant was generally good but clearing of plates and taking drinks orders were slow.
Great hotel but could be made so much better with some minor improvement. Overall 4*.More
Love this place
We have been going here for 4 years now and love it. The food is great and the staff are excellent and work very hard. There are plenty of sun beds.
The Latino bar is a great place to go on the strip in the evening. Beach has a great atmosphere in the evening with plenty of life going on and good places to eat, especially the place at the bottom of the strip on the left hand side. More
Good hotel, great location but some work needed.
Want to start by saying that this hotel is in a superb location. Just off the main strip, close enough to the bars & restaurants but far enough away to get a good nights sleep. The beech is lovely.
On arrival we thought check in was quite slow, even though there was only 5 parties checking in it took around 30 minutes. Although it's not an horrendous amount of time after a 1hr 10min transfer time from airport with a 1yr old it felt like an age.
We were given the room key and went on our way. The room we were given was awful. Right on top of the kitchen area in the bottom corner with a view of a green flat roof was not my idea of a great view.
We immediately returned to reception and was given a apartment room for 1 night then returned to main building in room 425 for the rest of our holiday. This room was much better over looking the pool and could even see the hills and the sea.
The air con in the room was pretty much just like a desk fan. Didn't help at all one day that reached 37 degrees.
Welcome meeting was poor. Although the rep was good I thought that there wasn't much choice of activities or trips to go on. I also thought a glass of fizzy wine or juice at welcome meetings was pretty much the norm these days as well but there was nothing.
The staff at this resort are a true credit. All work really hard throughout the day. The grounds keeper guy doesn't stop all day, litter picking, garden/grounds work, stacks all the sun loungers and the end of the day he was like a machine.
All the pools were great although got slightly over crowded at times. Have to agree with everyone else yes there were plenty of loungers and loads of shady areas if you wanted to be under the trees.
Drink and food from the resort was expensive. Your paying a premium for the convenience. â¬4.20 for strawberries and cream, â¬3.50 pint of lager, think burger and fries was around â¬8-9 euros.
Only ate here a few times but there's plenty of bars on the strip including metropolis which was really well priced and had all the premier league games on the opening weekend.
The rooms were really light/airy and modern,although slightly on the small side.
Didn't really watch much TV but only around 5-6 English channels most were in German or Spanish.
Breakfast & dinner times were great.....if you were German. No real bacon, no real sausages, potato wedges,chocolate cake and chocolate donuts no really my idea of a breakfast all became really repetitive. There was fresh fruit but it wasn't great quality. All they had was apples, melon, peaches and bananas. The coffee was dreadful but there was machined coffee available which was better.
Dinner times, same again really repetitive, food was better than breakfast but chaotic at times.
The entertainment team were really good. Working throughout the day & night trying to keep the kids entertained. Something different on every night. Frozen, elvis night, karaoke, Michael Jackson worked really well.
If you wanted wifi you had to pay. Although it was available at the poolside bar for free it was pretty much non existent. Slow/crashing constantly. These days internet is like fresh air, I've stopped over in many hotels abroad with free wifi before and just think you have to pay enough for the actual holiday it's just a shame all hotels don't have this facility.
Reception area could do with a facelift. Bland & drab looking like it's been left in the 90's. Although at least the air con worked here.
All in all the hotel has a fantastic family vibe and is in a great location, great views if you get the right room. The staff are all brilliant can't do enough. The children's facilities are also second to none and should never get bored from waking up to going to bed.
For us we felt that the German guests are more catered for than other nationalities. The food for me is a big part of my holiday and felt let down by that. We ate out 4 nights out of the 7 just because of the food just wasn't to our liking.
I've rated it 4 stars but in all honesty if I could of rated 3.5 I would have.
I would return to Ca'n Picafort but not to this resort I'm afraid.
Fantastic summer holiday
We stayed here as 2 families with teenage girls for 11 nights. This is our second time at the hotel and we love it. Food is fantastic and plentiful, hotel is spotless and staff very friendly. Rooms are modern with a lovely spacious bathrooms and modern shower. Nice quiet aircon and rooms cleaned everyday.
We emailed in advance and asked for 3 pool facing rooms on a high floor as these are the best rooms as you can see the sea and our request was met. No rush to get up for sun beds there are always beds available and lots of shade under the trees. Some people still got up early to reserve beds but I can't understand why unless they were attached to a certain tree....
The hotel has prominently German guests and the kids club and some activities are focussed on those guests but we didn't mind and joined in anyway and walloped them at table tennis and archery ;)
Big mention for the guy who tidies the hotel grounds and stacks all of the sun beds every day - what a star! He even 'hoovers' the road outside the hotel.
The roof top bar is fantastic with live music some evenings and brilliant views of the sunset, Alcudia and the mountains. The resort is fairly small and felt safe for the teenagers and the beach is gorgeous - not even 10 min walk away from the hotel. Lots of nice bars to choose from.
Only grump is wearing long trousers in the restaurant - not a problem if we had known in advance, no mention in the Thomson brochure. Hubby wore his longest shorts which covered the knee and this was OK with the restaurant manager.
The hotel TUI transfer could be better, it took over an hour to get moving as we were waiting for other flights and all nationalities on the bus. (Make sure you are prompt for your return pick up as the driver doesn't check you off a list)
From the moment I arrived the service was first class.Hotel spotless.The food was amazing with a huge variety of choice including Gluton free.The grounds are extensive and there was always a lounger free no matter what time I needed it.
I travelled alone and I felt secure and safe in this hotel.
Staff were very polite throughout my stay.
I will definitely go back as it is the best hotel I have stayed in for over 30 years.More
