“What is there to complain about”
Reviewed 19 August 2012

We did what most people do and read reviews before booking this hotel however booked 10 nights for August , this hotel was great there was always something in the resturant but not a hugh selection but what do you want in a small hotel . Pool could be bigger but again forefills the need , if you are looking for five star this is not the hotel for you , however if you are looking for value for money try this hotel , and the germans and staff are friendly so please try it you might like it :-)

Room Tip: fitness centre is located else where but only 5 minutes walk good exercise

We went for 10 day's and i have to say it was the worst holiday we have ever been on, were to start about the hotel!! Well if your British, don't go, if you like good food, don't go, milk was like water, so couldn't even have cereal for breakfast, pool area very small, Rooms very dated and beds very hard, On the only plus side was the staff were friendly, we stayed from the 04/08/12 to the 14/08/12, Apart from the staff we never spoke with anyone else in the hotel as the german people were not friendly at all

Stayed at this hotel 31.7.12. for one week. Upon arrival, were told that there had been an over-booking, when did we book? Told them booked and paid for in May. We were offered a room for that night and promised one of the best rooms in the hotel from the following afternoon, which we accepted. The first room was little more than a box room with a tiny bathroom. The next afternoon, we were moved to a bigger room with a corner balcony and larger bathroom which was much more acceptable, although none of the rooms there appear to be anything more than basic. Upon talking to other English people staying there, we found that they had also been "over-booked", and were offered various things, eg, all inc instead of half board, free safe, etc., until a better room could be found. The clientele were predominantly German, which was not a problem for us, but we wondered how many of those had been "overbooked". So, room basic, nothing more. Staff we found were friendly and hard-working, especially Valentino in the bar and the young blonde girl doing the kids' entertainment (in German). The hotel was clean, but not spotless, and you didn't see cleaners working all the time like we had experienced in other Spanish hotels. The location of the hotel was quite good, couple of streets back from the beach, and the beach is the best thing about Can Picafort. Fine, pale sand and mountains in the distance, although it was very crowded when we were there and they charged you 10 Euros per day for 2 x sunbeds and parasol if you wanted them. There is a long promenade alongside the beach with bars and restaurants aplenty, and shops selling "beach essentials like water, ice-cream, toys, etc. The main shops are in the street behind the promenade, but they all seem to sell very similar things at similar prices, so not very captivating. Seemed to be very family-orientated kind of place. We went all-inclusive and found the food to be adequate but not very inspiring. The meat was usually quite bony, although we did have some nice chicken legs and some spicy pork which were tasty. The "yoghurt" for breakfast was more like Angel Delight, and it was generally budget food on offer. You would not go hungry as there was plenty there, but sometimes to get a decent-tasting meal involved some unusual combinations of dishes on offer. The AI drinks were another disappointment. You could have cocktails on AI but there was so little alcohol content that you may as well been having squash (by the way, ask for juice, you get squash). The drinks poured were very generous and still you would find it hard pushed to get tipsy on them. All in all it was just about acceptable, but I would avoid the JS chain of hotels in future. Its a good job the weather was as good as expected (not down to the hotel). A number sunbeds were adorned with towels regularly with no owners appearing, but there was a notice posted on the door after a few days saying this wasn't allowed so somebody must have complained. Not over-impressed with this hotel or Can Picafort in general and would not recommend or return to either. By the way, complimentary toiletries amounted to one sachet each of shower gel and shampoo per stay.

Room Tip: We had 221 which has a corner balcony.

Just got back from a week in JS Yate. The only positive thing about this hotel was our room, it was large but it needs updating. Food was pathetic.Some days were bad and some days were not so bad. Yes, we could always find somthing to eat but we did not enjoy it. Pool area... this was one of the worst i have seen.

This was my 64-years old father´s first holidays ever and I was very worried as he is not easy to please. He also suffers from a coeliac disease so I was very worried about food. But it was excellent. The hotel is not in the main street therefore not noisy but still in the centre, the access to the beach was just perfect, about 100m. Lots of shops and restaurants around. Close to bus stop.
I can only recommend, there was nothing much to complain about. The food was excellent and despite his limited choices he was never able to try everything. Everything was fresh and lots of choices. Plenty of drinks, hot and cold, and alcoholic drinks such as beer and wine or coctails. The accomodation was good too, maybe bathroom was not the biggest and modern, but all good for 8 days. Cleaning was provided everyday as well as fresh towels.
Most guests were from Germany and older people as it was in the middle of September and couple of Russian families, therefore, friendly and not noisy. Personnel was friendly and very helpful.
I highly recommend for those who don´t look for snobby but still very good place to spend holidays.

Room Tip: The rooms above swimming can be quite noisy because of the late music

We stayed here for a week .
We stayed on Half Board base , I guess 95% of the people stayed all inclusive.
Yate is a 3-star hotel . Rooms look a bit old but are ok .
Food (breakfast and evening dinner) was ok , we could always find something we liked.
The swimming pool is rather small , but we did not use it . We are not going on holiday to stay at the pool of a hotel.
There was evening entertainment everyday , but we did not went to it.
Good value for the money you pay . But do not expect a 4-star hotel.

On arrivial to js cape colom after a very tiring journey, we were very disapointed of the location of the hotel ,But with a very nice manager he happended to get us transfered to JsYate Hotel in picafort .
On arrivial we were greeted by friendly staff and the bar manager came and greeted us with a nice refreshing glass of champagne.
the manager himself ferendo was so nice he gave us a very nice clean room ,and located us to a nice sunny side of the hotel.
apart from this we were very disapointed with the guest. all guest were germans and not one word did they speak eanglish. so in all we made no nice friends. sorry no insult to germans or the dutch but you need to lighten up somewhat and make friends . all guest wer over the age of 60 or there abouts. we wer the youngest at the hotel. but apart from this the resort around it gave plenty of nite life for those who wanted it. and the beach just a five minuite walk away.
Lea is the nicest and friendlist girl we came across . she should be awarded staff of the month. so if yate hotel is readin this say a big hi to lea for us the crazy girl as she knew her and her friends say a very big high.
over all the hotel was well kept , clean and bright. but for the food. they need to step up somewhat on there AI programe. i liveed on salad while there as for my sis she was sick every day. could not eat anthing. if you want a lively hotel this is not for you ,but if you want a quite hotel with no entertainment stay away.
