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.

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

Wonderfully relaxing break

As a busy mother and Teacher of two young children I wanted a relaxing weekend away by myself. The hotel was exactly what I needed. The friendly and cosy accommodation and its surrounding provides a refreshing and calm place to unwind and recharge. The staff were fantastic and friendly. I was originally given a room right opposite a loud Karaoke bar- when I asked for a different room, I was moved first thing the next morning to a lovely quiet, larger room. The food is simple but delicious and the chef provides a warm welcome on each sitting. Travelling alone for the first time I was a bit anxious about how my experience would be, but it was just perfect. Everyone was friendly and I didn't feel at all uncomfortable at any point. The hotel is literally a 2 min walk to the beautiful white sandy beach with turquoise waters. There are sunbeds, a bar and places to eat by the beach. The beach was quiet, not near any huge hotels so the whole holiday was relaxing and peaceful. Complete bliss. I will certainly be returning here- I think it will now become an annual tradition!More

Nice hotel, quiet location

I stopped here in June. My first impression of the hotel were slightly disappointing. There was a street market on outside and we couldn't get in easily. Though after a few days I began to like it (also the market is only on on a Friday) The staff are really friendly, on our last day we were allowed to have some breakfast before we left. The room was a decent size, though we had no kettle and the fridge was 12 euro a day. Though overall the room was nice, with a built in radio, which was a strange feature. The food is okay, we stopped half board and only ate the evening meal twice (7 till 9) which was a buffet though nothing special. Breakfast was okay, nothing amazing but it was a good start to the day. There is a bus stop right outside, which makes life easier. There is an inside pool and the beach is a 3 minute walk away. The local area is nice, quiet and mainly aimed at older people and families. Overall a good stay we were the youngest there, which was okay. Though i would recommend it .More

Estella S,

Lovely little hotel

Me and my hubby stayed here, it is a lovely hotel, staff were really friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble, rooms are nice and big, food was good, its in a beautiful area not far from all the shops and bars, we are looking to return next year. The bar is nice and cheap for drinks and bar staff are lovely. The only criticism is on their terrace it would be nice to have a shower or something so you can cool off as its gets hot thereMore
