“Cannot go wrong.”
Reviewed 14 August 2011

Having just returned from this hotel and resort I echo many of the comments on here already. The hotel was very clean, the food was very good and varied throughout the week, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel seemed to be mainly german tourists with the odd Brit and Spaniard,however it was always very quiet and had a relaxed atmosphere throughout our stay. The only downside was the pool area which was quite small and cramped however this offset by the beach and main promenade being a one minute walk away. The beach and sea and the resort of can picafort were all fantastic very clean, relaxing with no hussle and bustle or over exuberatant bar and restaurant staff trying to hound you. We visted the market on the firday morning which was very good with a wide variety of goods and provided great entertainment haggling with storeholders who promise "good price" "cheap as chips" and cheaper than Matalan & Primark" being amusing patter from some stallholders. I would also recommend the boat trip which goes from the Harbour to Formentor an extremely picturesque spot and lovely beach and this trip was nearly £20 cheaper than the ones offered from Alcudia or Porta Pollensa and was a good day out. Overall a great holiday with a fantasic location and a resort that provides the perfect place for a relaxing few days away.

My wife and I, along with our 5 year old granddaughter arrived at the hotel late, so after booking in we retired to our room on the 3rd floor. The room was on the roadside of the hotel. I opened the balcony door to look outside and my heart sank. At the end of the hotel was a bar playing loud music, Status Quo “Whatever You Want”. Fortunately when the balcony door was closed you could hardly hear anything and we had a good night’s sleep for the whole of the holiday. In the morning we went down for breakfast and just sat anywhere. The food on offer was good and there was a chef on hand to cook eggs or omelettes which was a nice touch. At dinner we just sat down but the head waiter told us we had to wait to be seated next time. So at the evening meal we waited by the entrance. He eventually came to show us to a table but not before loads of the guests filed past us and selected their food. We did ask the waiter about this but didn’t really get a satisfactory answer. Some night’s some couples were even asked to come back at a later time. Having said that the head waiter was absolutely fantastic and always showed us to a table every night of our stay. Due to previous experiences at other hotels we went down early to get a sun bed but nearly every day there was always sun beds available despite stereotypes of the Germans nicking all the sun beds (the majority of the guests been predominately German). The bar could have done with a one more bar staff at the evening when there was entertainment on, but that’s the case in most hotels on holiday. The hotel itself is nicely situated in C’an Picafort with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants and lots of things to keep the kids entertained it’s also only a few minutes away from the beach. The entertainment at the hotel was bingo, singers and a drag act..The drag act was good but the rest of the entertainment was a bit old fashioned in my opinion. I have read a few comments about the food and the hotel been full of Germans. The food was good and varied and as for the Germans they where no different from the English, French, Spanish etc this is 2011 people if anything they seemed more friendly than some of our own countrymen. I would not hesitate to come to this hotel again we had a highly enjoyable holiday.The only downside was that I can't get that Status Quo record out of my head.

Reviewed 12 July 2011

Hotel Gran Playa has a marvellous position in C'an Picafort, a minute from the beach and just a minute from the busy part of the resort. The hotel is exceptionally clean and well maintained. The pool area is small but there are ample sunbeds and parasols as most people go off to the beach.The food is not at all bad but does cater more to the German taste. The hotel is rated poorly on trip advisor, I think this is because there is a similarly named hotel in Sa Coma mixed in with the reviews and very few photos relate to the Gran Play in C'an Picafort. The hotel had mixed holidaymakers while we were there, mainly German with a few Spanish and English. All in all an ideal base for a holiday in C'an Picafort. The dining room is very well run by the manager and his staff. The service is of a very high standard.
By the hotel you will find the marvellous beach and promenade, there are plenty of bars catering to all tastes and a good bus service to Alcudia and other resorts.

The hotel was great. It is mainly for the German market and we were the only Brits in the hotel. The staff all speak German (naturally) but their English is perfectly adequate and we had no problem with communication.
Reception changes money, sells postcards and stamps and books trips. What more do you want?
Bedrooms are small with a balcony with table, two chairs and a drying rack. Bathroom was modern with toothbrush, paste, razor, comb etc supplied. Towels changed on demand. Leave them on the floor and they are replaced.
Restaurant was good. We had our own designated table for our whole stay and while the Germans had to share we had a lable all to ourselves. Food is mainly German and Spanish but quite acceptable. Breakfast for us was rolls and jam but there is lots more available though the scrambled eggs were like rubber. For dinner I liked the soup, my wife liked the salad and there was always a choice of at least two main courses we could eat. Fish was grossly overcooked. Lots of cake for dessert but lots of fruit too.
Bar was poor. No atmosphere and the service was sometimes poor. Much better to go to a bar on the promenade.
Pool is small but we always found a bed no matter what time of day we went.
Location is brilliant, in the town and very close to the beach.
At one end of the hotel is a noisy bar. If you are near that - hard luck.

We liked staying here as its very close to the beach and town. The room and bathroom were clean and spacious and the pool at the hotel was really nice, great when you are fed up with the sand. Breakfast was really good, we didnt any other meals here.

The staff were polite, but they struggle with english - german is the main spoken language and as mentioned in other reviews about 90% of other guest are german so most evening entertainment is tailored to this.

the main problem was the bar at the base of the hotel, if you are staying in the rooms away from the beach and towards the town end the music goes on till 12, fine if you are out till then but could imagine a nightmare if you had kids with you. The last 2 night of our stay the noise never seemed to stop till 4am, think it overlapped with start of school holidays.

Overall we had a really good stay here, but would request rooms on the beach side at the pool end of the hotel if staying again.

Reviewed 14 September 2009

We stayed at the Gran Playa for a week this September. We were duped by the four star rating, which the hotel does not deserve. The rooms had no views, we were facing other buildings. We asked for an alternative room, but the view was again of another building. The television was small, there was no fridge or iron or trouser press. The bathroom was small and dimly lit. The food was mediocre at best although the choice was good. The restaurant manager was impersonal. On the plus side, the reception staff were multilingual, efficient and extremely helpful. The room was cleaned daily and the towels changed daily. The hotel was within 100 yards of a lovely sandy beach. We paid for a four star hotel but got a three star hotel instead.
