Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Janeiro last week. The hotel common areas (foyer, lift lobbies and dining room) were modern and bright and the bar area provided a nice indoor break from the sun.
Our room faced the street and although spotlessly clean and in good condition it could do with a little bit of updating and it was a little noisy on our balcony with buses and the tourist train going past regularly. The beds and balcony furniture weren't particularly comfortable but we didn't spend much time in the room so it wasn't a big problem for us. Our main complaint was the lack of soundproofing between rooms - thankfully our neighbours weren't particularly rowdy!
We stayed half board and the food was very good for most of our meals, breakfast in particular was always good. The evening meals were varied but always had a couple of regular staples like pizza and pasta dishes for those who are perhaps more reluctant to try different cuisine.
The pool areas were well kept and we usually managed to find sun loungers in the shade in the afternoon around the larger pool. The smaller pool area was busy for the majority of the day. The beaches nearest the hotel were lovely but watch out for the rocks on the ground in some of the shallow areas.
The hotel spa was very pleasant and again spotlessly clean.
All in all we had a lovely stay at the Janeiro and the surrounding area of Can Picafort was just what we had hoped for. Beautiful beach but not ram packed with tourists.

Well as the title states this was my fourth visit to the hotel and probably millionth stay in Can Picafort Majorca! I can honestly say this is one of the better hotels in the area!
I will start my starting some of the ... yes disappointing elements but i urge you to continue reading. This hotel has been standing since 1973 and had a refurb back in 2001 so needless to say it is due another and yes 2014 it is finally getting one! Lets hope they update the slowest lifts i have ever experienced in my life!!
However, onto the good stuff! Well something had to keep me coming back! This visit I took my boyfriend along with me for the first time(on our very first holiday!) I can honestly say that he was a bit apprehensive when he first walked in as previously stated the decor is a bit dated (AT THE MOMENT). But as the holiday went on he was pleasantly surprised! So this hotel is perfectly clean and the general staff are friendly and helpful! The cleaning staff will do anything for you, even clean up when youre poorly(without a fuss! and then ask how you are the next day!)
The food is standard for a currently 3star hotel but there is a wide variety to cater for all ages and nationalities!
Piella, pizza, pasta, chips, meats, fish, rice, salad bars, burgers, hot dogs, mousakka and so much more
Bar - yes two drinks a time but that is to get the queues down which they do very fast and you can go up as much as you like - ALL INCLUSIVE!
but the most important thing is next.
We must say that the hotel staff were among the best we have ever had. If you made a request it was taken care of with a smile and they took care to fill the request with a bit more than you exspected. The breakfast was very good and as much as you wanted to eat. Tea time menu was very good most days and it's all you can eat from soup to sweets. Side trips were arranged by the hotel reception with good advice and tips. Drinks are very reasonably priced.
i vivsited at the end of september looking for a quite relaxing break and i would reccomend this hotel for anyone looking for a such a break. Staff helpfull and friendly, food good and plentifull, bottle of house red very reasonable,generally drinks reasonably priced no more expensive than the surrounding bars. If you are after nightlife this is not the hotel for you it is a long walk to the main area of the resort. Rooms are clean and perfectly ok, mattresses are a bit on the thin side however.. my first visit to Majorca and i was impressed not what i had expected,clean, quite and scenic and would happily return to this resort and this hotel.
The hotel wasnt bad, the service was ok, and the staff friendly. However, there is a NOISY PLAYGROUND at the back of the hotel apartments. It is incredible how a small motorcycle can make so much noise, apart from the families that come to the playground with their children to play with. And I couldnt stay in my room until 10pm, closing time of the playground.
