Thought I had done this review - apologies for its lateness . I have stayed at this hotel 3 times and it’s probably the only ‘holiday destination ‘ hotel that I have ever gone back to. I love it. I have referred several friends and relatives over the years who have also stayed there - all loved it some have been back again. It has hotel rooms and apartments whichever you fancy. I stay in the apartments - as I am travelling with sulky teens and young ones :) warning you would need to book this well in advance. The hotel is very clean , the staff are friendly and there all plenty of facilities and things to do for all ages. The people staying there are a mix of all ages, and it’s not overrun with kids or with the oldies - it’s a happy mix. It feels safe, which is important to us as a family. The kids loved the kids club. The location is great it’s centrally located with plenty of shops and restaurants near by with the beach a long stroll but not too long and quite pleasant. The hotels food is quite good . The staff are amazing and can arrange anything that you need or any trips / rentals etc etc .

We stayed in for 7 nights, 2 september - 9 september 2017. Our major complaint would be that although it was hot outside, the pools very very cold, around 22 degrees I guess, colder than the sea actually, which by the way, was pleasant to stay in. Out of the 3 pools, none were heated and even swimming (not resting) was uncomfortable. The children's pool play-park was again improper, very very cold water, it should have been heated water, at least for the kids! The hotel features a nice sand and activity play ground for the children. Lot of sun beds and shade at any time of the day. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment and were pleased with the facilities and housekeeping services. The restaurant area is nice, especially the one in the open air, we had half board and were satisfied with the menu, but you had to pay the beverages in the evening. Front desk crew very friendly and helpful. The distance to the seaside and promenade was not an issue for us. Would I go back? NO, because of the cold pools, I consider this hotel not suitable for us.

I organised a family get together for a long weekend in May 2017. The hotel was nice with renovated common areas and beautiful gardens with 2 swimming pools. The apartment was fully equipped, spacious and confortable. We were staying in half board so we had breakfast and dinner there every night and I found it nice and varied. The hotel is not located in a prime location but still not far from the beach. You have to walk through a pedestrian street full of souvenir shops and bars to get there, a few minutes walk away from the hotel. The only thing I didn't like was the lack of entertainment for my small children. There was a kids club for only TUI guests so, since we had booked directly to the hotel website, my kids were not allowed to take part in their activities. Unfortunately, since it was not yet high season, there was not entertainment scheduled for kids apart from TUI's.

We decided to revisit the C’an Picafort area ance again as this is on of our favorite places in Mallorca. However we also thought that B&B was a good option, giving us more flexibility. So where & why?? It was obvious really- Gruphotel Gran Vista & Spa. Simply because our previous visit it was everything we needed for a great holiday. Superb rooms, facilities, staff & of course food. The staff at reception are always read to help - just ask!! The location is ideal for all, close to the beach, dozens of restaurants & shops. Worth taking a trip up to the roof bar in the evening for a great view & drinks. When we were there a vocalist / pianist provided entertainmnet. As always no shortage of sun-beds or places to relax & excellent pools. There is also a fabulous pool area for children. One thing be prepared to pay the “Environment tax”. We were asked to pay at thee nd of the holiday - this does vary at other hotels.

Firstly, can I comment on the previous review that says it is a fair walk to the beach. It is only a 1 minute walk to the lovely shops and restaurants, a further 3 minutes walk to the seafront through this nice location. The road to the shops etc has pedestrian crossings on either side. There is no problem getting across as 'Every' car slows down and stops for you. This is a lovely hotel. Has beautiful grounds and swimming pools. All the staff we came across were very friendly and helpful. It is the perfect place to switch off and has a very relaxed laid back feel about it. I was here with my wife and 12 year old daughter and it is ideal for both families and couples. There is no problem in getting a sun lounger at any time of the day. We were breakfast only which was nice , we didn't eat here in the evening but did have lunch at the poolside bar several days and it was very good. There were mixed nationalities and this helped with the nice atmosphere as there was no lager louts etc . The Spa is excellent and a great place to relax and chill out for the last hour of the day . We travel a lot all over the world and would definatelty recommend this to anyone. And I nearly forgot, the roof top bar has some lovely views.

A Large Hotel with plenty to do. We went for 10 days in mid October and was very pleased. Nice clean room, fantastic buffet breakfast with loads of choice, Great Indoor and Outdoor pools with nice grassy areas and pool bar. Use of the brilliant Gym and spa. Nice rooftop bar as well. Friendly staff throughout the hotel. Entertainment and sports to join in with during the day. The holiday was made all the better with decent weather in mid October. Plus i was 6 times champion of the Dardos!

Big hotel. good breakfast. mostly German speaking guests. many pools, very good facilities. bit noisy rooms. good airconditioner in rooms good spa and sauna fabulous view from room to the see beach in 6-7 min walk via Can Picafort center many restaurants are very close It was a very good stay, I recommend this place.

We stayed with a couple of family in May this year and came back again with friends in oct this year too. A very big thank you to Guillem Mestre for looking after us. It was lovely meeting you. We were amazed you knew who we were. Our family and friends also now share our love for your hotel and the island of Majorca. As always a fab visit, friendly staff, spotless clean hotel and great food. Cant ask for more. Thank you for making us so welcome again. Hipe to be back again next year

Hotel is lovely, clean, tidy and staff very helpful. There were three of us in our party (2 adults + 13 year old) and I found the room on the small side - two single beds pushed together to form a double and then a separate single about a foot away! Nice balcony with good views. Position of the beds meant the light switches, that would have been either side of the double bed, were now at pillow height and were often knocked during the night which meant the room being illuminated! Funny the first time but the novelty wore off. Spoke to reception who said all the rooms were the same size but they could offer a larger suite at a cost of €240 for the week. Not worth it for the week we were there. Entertainment was very good, singers, acrobats etc - probably best we’ve seen in a hotel. Bar staff very good. You can charge things to your room and pay at the end, hotel didn’t ask for a credit card, just pay at the end. Given that it is October the hotel was surprisingly quiet, clearly a favourite hotel with people from Germany. Loads of sun beds available every day, didn’t see one bed reserved in the week we were there. The swimming pools were freezing but didn’t stop us braving it! The spa was amazing although they need to seriously enforce the swimming costume rules. It would appear you don’t have to wear a costume in the sauna but naturally have to wear one everywhere else. Clearly some men didn’t read the signs and it was most off putting as they wondered about naked - not good! If you’ve got children under 16 they aren’t allowed in - the spa isn’t staffed between 1300 and 1530 so this would be an ideal time to allow children time to use the pool etc. Perhaps management could consider a relax in the rules. Food - genuinely good however as it was clearly nearing the end of the season there was an obvious reduction in what was available. Fresh orange juice one day and then not the next. Choices were good however on one night chicken nuggets and burgers tipped me over the edge, not what I was expecting and really niggled me. On occasions there didn’t appear to be a great deal of thought to the meals. On a whole the food was good but was let down on one or two occasions. We found the hotel very reasonable for drinks and food compared to bars and cafes on the beach which were far more expensive. It was clear that the nearer the beach you go, the more expensive it gets. There is a great hotel Bistro serving sandwiches, pizzas etc. There is an amazing supermarket about half a mile from the hotel, out the hotel and turn left.....far cheaper for water than the ‘Spa’ shops that are every 10 metres! In hotel entertainment was good, pool games and staff that were keen to get people involved. WiFi was good and strong signal in the rooms and round the pool. Would definitely stay at the hotel again.

We spent a week here this October and were delighted with the quality of the hotel. We were in room 208 and it was very quiet at night. The whole place was really clean, not only our room, but the other public places as well. The mattresses were a bit on the hard side for us but that was the only complaint. The quality of the food was superb and the choice was fantastic. They catered for gluten free, vegans and others with dietary requirements. The hotel stands in spacious grounds with lots of activities like volleyball, tennis, mini golf etc. The pools were clean and there were hundreds of sun loungers available. The evening entertainment wasn't great and there were far more Germans than English. The hotel staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We were given a fruit juice when we arrived and because we were being picked up at 7am to go to the airport, we were invited to use the restaurant to get our own breakfast. This was great and meant we left on a full stomach! Ca'n Picafort was a little too commercialised for our liking but we went by bus, about an hour, to Port Pollensa and it was very beautiful with a lovely beach and swimming in crystal clear waters. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. I just wish it was in Pollensa instead!
