A lovely, peaceful break in a very nice hotel a convenient distance away from the bustle (although in October, much of the "bustle" has subsided. San Baulo is the quiet end of Can Picafort. It has many very good sea front restaurants and a good mix of sandy and rocky shore.
At the north end of Can Picafort, the reed beds and waterways of the Albufera are a terrific contrast to the sea and sand of the beaches.
The location is within easy reach (by car) of Pollensa and Formentor to the north, and the many callas to the south. For people with an interest wildlife, Salinas is well worth a visit. Birds which might be seen include flamingos, egrets and marsh harriers.
Visiting at off-peak times of the year is wonderfully relaxing. I suspect that, in high season, the ambiance would be quite different!

Good hotel and staff. Beds too hard for my better half but just right for me. Needed extra pillows and it was no problem once asked. Restaurant very busy but efficient. Choices a little limited and no coffee available at evening meal.

Room overlooking sea with balcony, however, room décor tired and needed re-decoration. Small piece of soap provided was not replaced in 10 days also sachets of shampoo and shower gel. TV was only in Spanish and German, English channels were BBC World News, Bloomberg Business and CNBC News. Free Wi-Fi in bar area only. Breakfast buffet was good with plenty of choice. Good value.

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.

A very clean hotel, with a fantastic pool (and a second quiet pool) and great entertainment for kids and young families. There are plenty of activities, and the daily evening entertainment was varied, but it is so loud that we ended up timing an evening walk for that time so we could avoid the noise.
The room is very spacious for a couple, bathroom which is well equipped and a bedroom with good windows and balcony with a view over the pool. the kitchenette is quite small and unfortunately of a poorer quality than the rest of the apartment. There is no kettle or toaster, and although the microwave has a grill, when we attempted to use it to toast bread, it fused the electrics for the flat. A few hours after calling reception maintenance arrived and their fix was that we instead place the wire grilling rack over the hob (there is no oven) instead, and they warned us not to use the grill in the microwave again.
The rest of the open kitchen-lounge is spacious, the TV had many channels, most of which are in German. You'll notice this outside too, as every morning a large portion of the sunbeds around the pool had towels on them. Although the hotel says reserving sunbeds isn't permitted, we never saw this rule enforced, and it was frustrating at times when there were few sunbeds free for us to use.
The cleaning staff were efficient and the entertainment staff very friendly, however the same cannot be said for the reception staff, who with the exception of one were unhelpful.

the beds were the comfiest I have experienced when holidaying. rooms very clean but could do with refurbishing as does the dining room, stairs and corridors. the rest of the hotel looks like it has been updated. relaxing atmosphere. the staff are very efficient and approachable. food could have been better i.e. the quality/variety of hot meat. lovely pool and surrounding grounds - plenty of green grass and enough trees for shade. quiet at night as it is away from any bars.
