REVIEW BY: Roger Morris - July 2012
We are two adults and a 7 year old son and we were lucky to have picked up this excellently cared for hotel. We booked with Thomson.
We arrived and checked in very quickly, the ladies at the reception desk are so friendly and nice to children.
The Hotel itself was of an excellent standard with regard to the accommodation it provided, it is not the most modern, but we had a family room which was tasteful and clean, with TV, hairdryer, a fridge and more than adequate bath/shower-room with hair and body wash provided.
The hotel staff were fantastic, very nice to us, helpful, and work extremely hard. Excellent swimming pool with a reasonably priced drinks and snacks.
There are two outside pools , a big one with a seperatin for children, a second small one for young children, and a very small one for babies Their terraces are beautiful and there are plenty of sunbeds.
There is a table tennis table, you can rent the table tennis bats for free.
We stayed half board. The buffet food was of the highest quality that we have ever experienced before, it was always hot, varied and plentiful, in one week that we spent there, they never once had the same meal twice, the desserts were gorgeous. The restaurant was well run and it worked very well.
There is a kids lounge with a tv and pool tables and also an adults only tv room (good for the men watching the footie) and reading/chill out room.
Kids club was great and our son loved every minute of it
We were also very pleased with entertainment in and around the hotel, the Hotel provided entertainment for all ages every evening. (The mini disco was a bit short though, should be at least an hour long)
Guests in the hotel are a mixed of nationalities, most english, but we also met some Spanish and italians.
The hotel is spotless, Reception, Bar,Toilets etc were all kept very clean and tidy. The Swimming Pool and Terraces areas were also tidy and clean.
The beach itself is beautiful. Nice,quiet and relaxing. Weather was very good.
The hotel is located about 30 minutes walk to the resort, but a very nice walk, no cars, great the kids can just run all the way and wear themselves out. Transport links to the local town were frequent and reliable.
Can Picafort has also an excellent street market on Fridays where bartering is the name of the game. It had no end of shops and restaurants spanning the seafront and a little harbour which is very picturesque at sunset.
We hired a car through the reception, cheaper than Thomson.
Would certainly recommend this hotel again and again to anyone who is looking for a hotel near by most of the main shops, beaches, restaurants ect.
