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.

Had a fantastic holiday, food was excellent and we were spoiled for choice. Hotel facilities were good and well used by all. A good selection of shops and beach all easily within walking distance. A visit to the local market can be easily achieved by using the little road train which stops at the hotel.
A great find and not what we were expecting. A hotel with individual chalets that were very comfortable with bedroom, bathroom and living room with small kitchenette. All basic but adequate. Good bathroom with excellent shower and plenty of hot water. The two swimming pools on site were excellent and plenty of sun loungers around the leisure pool. We went out most of the time but enjoyed the restaurant and bar. Food was good, plenty of it and lots of choice. There were set times for supper but nobody was really checking. Hotel was very popular with German parents and young famillies and they were a delight. There did seem to be German reps there organising activities but we didn't really find out what this was all about. The whole atmosphere was very relaxed, no excessive noise, ideal for famillies and couples. Not sure if teenagers would find it very exciting but plenty to do around the area. I would recommend a hire car as you get to see a lot more and saves on airport transfers waiting around. I would definitely go back again.
I enjoyed my stay at Exagon Park Club and Spa. The staff was always very attentive and friendly. Our room was always clean and there was a good variety of food.
However the only improvement that I would suggest would be that there should be a kettle and tea in the room and more pillows.

Great location with good views and brilliant if you speak fluent German. Booking on Expedia.co.uk I expected English company within the hotel.
Other than that the hotel and facilities were outstanding and the location was stunning.
Be aware kids clubs start at 3+ if you are taking a small one and want a little break!
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!
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.
