Hotel Bonsai  

This hotel keeps things cosy with a beach on standby and a bar that’s great for being sociable.

There’s a terrace for sunbathing and an indoor pool. On the food front, the buffet restaurant covers breakfast and dinner and the café takes care of snacks. The bar is a good place for getting to know other guests.

The hotel doesn’t have an outdoor pool – instead you’ve got the sea just across the road, with a sandy beach attached. A 20-minute walk along the promenade takes you to C’an Picafort’s shops, bars and restaurants. This hotel is part of the Simply Travel collection until April 2017. It will then join our Small & Friendly range – home to holidays with an authentic and intimate feel.

Great budget hotel

BIG room , 2 balconies ! Friendly , English speaking reception staff 24hrs a day . Food was all cooked and presented well , however could have had more choice . Indoor pool was great for cooling down on hot afternoons . All facilities was clean and well maintained . Hotel situated close to all amenities, including public transport into town . Market right outside front door on a Friday is worth a visit . Beach is only a stones throw away . Great hotel . 20 min walk along beach front to main bars and attractions , however recommend local bar across the road ( Paco's crazy horse ) . Also some good restaurants on the sea front 2 minutes away . More

Well here we are again it's becoming a habit allbeit a good habit. We have stayed here for 3 years running as we feel like it's our 2nd home ( we wish it was ) I am sat on the lovely sun terrace on our last day writing this photo below plus a leg. This year we have a taxed for 14 nights and a full 14 days ( we time the flights to get the full day at the end ) we have enjoyed the food as usual very good and a good variety and lots of good home cooked food. We are getting to know the staff well now and picking up bits of Spanish the staff are so helpful and always have time for you for a chat and are very knowledgeable about majorca and all it can offer. This year we used the excellent spa at the rear of our hotel in the janeiro hotel for 10 euros you can spend as long as you want in there and book treatments for a good price we both enjoyed it and next year it will be one of our regular activities. I have joined the many runners in a morning on the prom it's a great place to exercise and very popular. We only did one trip this year and that was the caves of drach what a great day out we were taken to lovely places on the way including a trip to the pearl factory and stunning calas ( small coves ) lunch stop was in the beauifil town of Puerto cristo take your cosis for a dip it's a gorgeous spot and you get around 1 and a half hours there. Our final stop was a place where we all got to try 30 different liqueurs I was very good and only had about 5ml of each but for free you could try as many as you want we aren't drinkers but it was fun. It's been very hot this year so the indoor pool has been a godsend when the beach becomes too hot to sit on even under the brolly. We stay in son baulo which is part of can picafort. To get into town it's a lovely walk along the prom now we have met people who didn't realise there was a large town 10 minutes away so walk until you reach the busy bars on the prom past the harbour turn left and go onto the main road and keep right this takes you along all the lovely shops when you get to the crossroads at burger king, left takes you up another shopping street and right takes you back to the prom where there are shops and bars. Oh and the highlight of our holiday is the street market on a Friday it's outside our hotel and goes to the left for a good mile lots of bargains ( handbags galore ) 😆 well that's this year's review enjoy the hotel bonsai and say hello from us when you comeMore


gorgeous chilled hotel apart from cook

10 days of beautiful weather and excellent hotel .. nice location ..mostly friendly staff .. just dont upset the cook by using his coffee machine at meal time then you get the dirty looks and glared at for the rest of your stay and woe forbid if you leave the ladles the wrong way round in the food traysMore

Lone traveler

Arriving at Stil Bonsai, I was directed to my room on the second floor facing the road and found it to have a slight view of the sea from the balcony. As a lone traveler i found there to be ample storage for my belongings for the duration of my stay along with the nice added extras of shower gel, shampoo etc which was unexpected. There was also a hairdryer in the room but no iron or ironing board. The room had air conditioning which worked well in the heat at night and would have assisted in a good nights sleep had it not been for the noise of the road. Bin trucks, buses, motorbikes were very loud throughout the night and although i had been expecting some noise from the pub and hotel opposite I had not expected this and found I had seven nights of very little sleep. The hotel itself is very dated and the indoor pool very small (smaller than it looks in the pictures). I was looking forward to being able to use the small gym there but that too was disappointing in its condition. I cannot comment on the sauna as i had no wish to use it during my stay. If you are looking for a gym local, I can recommend the one in the hotel opposite with daily access of 5 Euros or 20 for a seven day pass. As with many reviews, I can confirm the food to be very basic with a choice of two dishes each evening and the chef does indeed stand watch. Although there were always two waitresses/ waiters present at meal times, i was asked once if i would like to order a drink. I got the feeling they, and the chef, were present purely to ensure no more food than necessary was taken and none was taken from the room. The lounge area was very dark in its appearance and not very welcoming to relax. Wifi is available but only if you want a very weak signal and don't mind standing in the lobby to receive it. Although I cannot say i particularly enjoyed my visit to the Stil Bonsai and have no intention of staying again, I did find i felt safe and secure within the hotel and the rooms were cleaned each day by the cleaning ladies.More

L-aura J,

Decent no-frills hotel.

Considering our holiday package cost us under £50 per day, including both the flight and the hotel. we weren't expecting opulent luxury here, so I will try to take that into account in writing a fair review. Firstly, the hotel and the room were both very clean and presentable. It's not a brand new development and the rooms aren't newly refurbished, but everything is in a good state of repair and well maintained. Our room came with a decent hairdryer with no extra charge. Internet access was also free of charge, via a code on a board in the lobby. We were lucky to be in room 105 directly above reception, which gave us internet access in our room despite being told by the receptionist that you could only get a signal in the lobby! The staff were friendly and helpful, though not all of them spoke English. My wife has a working knowledge of Spanish so we got by, but others might see this as a slight problem. The hotel's location is in a very quiet end of the resort. We wanted a low key spot as we weren't interested in the nightlife, but I'd say if you're young and want to party this is definitely not the place for you. Opposite the hotel is an English bar called the Crazy Horse, which we did not frequent, but the patrons were pretty quiet. Most nights there was medium volume live or recorded music played in the vicinity until midnight, but you'll find that or worse in most coastal tourist resorts so it was no big deal. Our favourite thing about the location was being only a few short strides from access to some lovely, relatively undeveloped shoreline. The sandy tourist beach of Son Baulo is just on your doorstep and is decent if you want to just sunbathe and dip in the sea, but walk 5 minutes further down the coast and you reach lovely bits of coast with hardly any people and some great spots for snorkelling, as well as an intriguing ancient Talaiotic coastal necropolis. You can also take a beautiful walk through a pine wood to the finca de Son Real. It's worth noting that all the local shops close at 11PM. Be sure to get some bottles of water for your first night, as the local water is pretty much undrinkable - it has very high mineral content and almost tastes like salt water! The food served in the morning and evening was fairly basic canteen-style fare; again, I feel it is reasonable to expect a fairly basic level of service when the rooms are so cheap. We are vegan, and were slightly dubious as to whether there would be much on offer for us. Breakfast was fine, as we were able to eat cereal with juice on it, toast with jam, and top up with piles of fruit that was all nice and fresh. Dinner was less appetising and we ended up eating out most nights. The food for non-veggies was mostly your typical full English stuff in the mornings - fried sausages, bacon, eggs etc - and in the evening it seemed to be stuff like cold cuts and (re)fried potatoes. The hotel's pool is indoors and there was never anyone in it - we enjoyed a dip to cool off one day when the sea was out of bounds due to strong rip tides. It seemed to be a saline pool, much nicer than chlorinated ones. There's even a little jacuzzi attached to it, plus a dry sauna and some basic exercise equipment. The hotel has a reasonable sun terrace with access from the first floor. To be honest, you'd be better off just heading to the nice beach that's right on your doorstep for all your lounging and swimming needs! If we returned to Mallorca I think we'd stay in Port de Pollença rather than Ca'n Picafort as we found it to be a much more charming and beautiful location, but if you are looking for a budget hotel which is clean, friendly and problem-free in a quiet neighbourhood, I'd happily recommend this place.More
