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.

Best Family Holiday
We stayed in this hotel as a family of four with our two sons, a 1 year old and a 3 year old and couldn't recommend the hotel enough. Perfect location, gorgeous rooms and brilliant food. Staff were excellent and did what they could too help you and the hotels own facilities were brilliant, great family hotel. Would advise an apartment if your travelling as a family as they really are huge so just give you that bit more space and freedom if you have young ones and might spend a little more time in the room.More

Just returned from a week in the Gran Vista, Can Picafort and was amazed at how lovely the hotel was. We was a bit worried about going as we'd read lots of reviews saying that the hotel was mostly German and that the staff didn't speak very good English. The hotel was in fact 95% German but this didn't affect our holiday at all as they were very friendly and polite, also all the staff spoke very good English as well as German and were extremly polite and helpful. We had a view across the pool with the sea in the distance. Our room was very clean with maid service daily. The pools were absolutely amazing, lots of different ones to choose from. The buffet style breakfast and dinner catered for everyone including nut allergy sufferers of which one of our party was. The head chef was brilliant, always on hand to advise what food was ok for the nut sufferer and even went to the extent of making a special desert for them. If you get a chance make sure you make use of the free spa, we didn't have any treatment but used the pool and jacuzzi and ice bath. Can't recommend this hotel more highly and will definitely be returning.More

We stayed in this hotel April 2014 for 11 nights and we were all extremely happy with our stay, It was our first time to this hotel, we traveled as a family of 5 ( Nanna and grandad have before and still loved it) On our first day to the hotel our Thompson coach broke down and we were late to the hotel, when we arrived a man rushed out from the reception to help us with our bags and a welcome drink was waiting for us which was much needed after the long journey we had, had. They were also every helpful asking if we need any help as my grandad was in a wheelchair and struggled to walk. I have nothing bad to say about this hotel at all, the day we arrived we got a note under our door saying the manger was doing an English welcome meeting in the upper bar with a free drink, we went to the meeting and we got to meet the manger of the hotel and you were able to speak to him if you wanted which we thought was lovely. In the restaurant we had our own table that we got asked if we would like to have the table reserved for our duration of the holiday, we loved that we could do this as with my grandad in a wheelchair we loved the table were we were sat. I've seen a few comments about the Germans in the hotel, yes there were Germans however we actually found them polite and friendly and whenever we saw them they said Moran (Good Morning in German) There is a bus stop just outside the hotel that you can get on which takes you to Alcudia, big market there. We used the indoor swimming pool in the spa which was always lovely and warm, also you can get free towels from there which you can take back and get changed when you like. I could go on with praise with this hotel and we would defiantly go back again.More

Thanks Gran Vista
We visited this excellent hotel in august 2014. we stayed for two weeks and travelled with Thomsons. The hotel is conveniently located for the town centre, beach and local bus stops but is far enough back from the main road to avoid traffic noise. The hotel and grounds are very well kept and the rooms are spotlessly clean. All the staff were extremely helpful and friendly from the director, the waiting and reception staff, the cleaners right down to the gentleman who looked after the pool and the gardens. The buffet was excellent and plentiful with a wide choice of food. As other reviewers have commented, British guests are in the minority but this did not spoil our enjoyment of the holiday in any way. The rooms although clean and comfortable are perhaps looking a little dated by now but I believe a refurbishment programme is underway this winter which should make this hotel even better. The large grounds and multiple pools meant that it never felt too crowded and there were always plenty of loungers available. There was entertainment most nights with a mixture of local acts and shows put on by the entertainment team,thanks to Phil for talking english to our little one,thanks to Erica for her eternal smile,aqua class and the funny pool party with balloon release,great entertainment. The views from the roof top bar are fantastic and the Director's cocktail party there is a nice touch We hope to return in 2015.More
Booked as part of Thomson platinum package - anything but....
Booked this holiday for our first one abroad with our son who was 18 months old when we went in August 2014. We didn't want to take any risks given it being our first one with him so chose this one as part of the Thomson Platinum range, particularly with it being advertised as a really good option for kids/young families... Firstly - the good points: The hotel was in a good location in C'an Picafort and we liked the resort itself. Nice beach nearby and the town centre had a nice atmosphere. Bus stops to Alcudia etc were just outside the hotel too. The pool area was excellent, although very cold in the mornings so our young one wouldn't venture in it until the afternoon! The restaurant staff were really nice, efficient and friendly. The food itself was a good quality too with enough variety for the week. The bad points: The main one (and one which we complained to Thomson when we returned home to a pitiful response) was that we paid for 7 days half board but only received six meals. Because our flight time meant we arrived at 3am in the morning to the hotel and missed the 'first night meal', we assumed we would receive a meal on our final day as we again had a late flight home. The hotel flatly refused and said we could only eat in their restaurant on the last day if we paid for a days extra board. We (along with some other families in the same situation) were outraged. We tried to complain to Thomson there and then - which brings me onto the second bad point; No Thomson rep for the 'English!'. Despite the fact we booked with them to ensure we had a rep, we were told by the Thomson rep on site that they were only 'there for the Germans' and I would have to use a phone line. Great. Third bad point - if you are an English family (and we don't mind mixed nationality hotels at all, been to them many times) but this hotel and resort is mainly catered for Germans. So the kids clubs, nightly entertainment - all in German. So if you're not a german speaker - its a waste of time. Final point, our room, on the third floor - you cannot lock the balcony door from the inside. Now that may not worry many - but with an inquisitive toddler who could reach the handle, it meant we had to block the door off with furniture. Not ideal. So in essence, the hotel wasn't bad - but experience ruined by the hotel and Thomson's approach to the half-board situation, the ridiculous response at the time and also when we returned home and the other points mentioned..... Will not book another Thomson holiday again.More
