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!

This hotel is family orientated which we knew as we used it only as a base to explore the local area. We were on a B&B basis so we are unable to comment on the evening meal. On our arrival we we informed that we were not expected until the next day, however the reception staff handled the problem very professionally and they arranged for us to stay at another hotel for that night. They provided us with a free lunch, slight room upgrade, free wifi and room safe. We found many restaurants within short walking distance fully recommend MAR y PAZ which has an international menu, ADVISE NOT TO GO TO "SA COVA". When having a meal you must have a local mallorcan wine which are easy drinking, light and floral. There is a local bus service bus stop just over the road where you can get the 352 to Alcudia old town at 1.8 € each. While there you must try the local beer which is brewed in the old town and served at Es Raco de Ronda. On our day of departure we were notified that we could partake of a cold breakfast for the early departure which was a pleasant surprise.

"Incredibly clean,lots of facilities,close to beach"
I had booked the hotel and flight through Expedia, then booked the hotel transfer and a request about the rooms direct to the hotel. Fast response and had done exactly as I had asked. The hotel is immaculate, rooms were cleaned everyday and all areas were cleaned constantly. The staff were helpful and approachable. The selection and quality of the breakfast and evening meals was faultless, with two vegetarians and two fussy children, it was a delight. Glad we hadn't gone all inclusive as it just wasn't necessary, so much in the direct area if you wanted a snack and the hotel was very fairly priced it wouldn't of been an advantage for us. I like to see different places but first time I would say I would definately come here again.

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.

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.

Perfect location about 10 minute walk down to the beach, supermarket right next door (closed on Sunday's) but plenty of little shops dotted around. Very quiet when we went, only a couple of other people sunbathing. Only problem was the cleanliness of a couple pools. The main pool was fine and clean so was the children's with the slides. The other children's pool had a tree which of course shed its leaves. The pool was filled and became murky, it wasn't cleaned during our 4 night stay. The pool round the side under the covers was warm but yet again it was filthy! We went to have a look and flies, leaves were everywhere and generally murky and no way would I go in. Whether they clean the pool weekly or fortnightly I don't know but to be honest it needs to be daily to keep on top of these things. It let the hotel down. It looked newly refurbished with the decking all around the pool and they were building what looked like a bar at the top end. Staff have no consideration for times they do tasks either, as they came out banging on the children's park and mowing the lawn at 11am when we were sunbathing trying to relax. Surely something like this should be done first thing like in main resorts?! Before people start coming out. Or get them done before the season starts. Plenty of restaurants down by the beach, we ate in the pirate one.
