Firstly I have to say that using Thomson for this holiday package was the best thing I did as I had booked this holiday as a surprise 30th Birthday present for my girlfriend...she had no idea where she was going until the night before. It went smoothly from beginning to end...just a shame it had to end.
Coach transfer dropped us directly outside the hotel so was glad not to have to walk. Upon entering the hotel it's really nice. The reception staff are friendly and welcoming. I had upgraded to a superior room with sea-view and we were not disappointed. The room was very nice, spacious and clean. I'm a little bit of a stickler for checking round the room to make sure it's clean and I wasn't disappointed at all. Because we had a superior room we also had an LCD TV which was nice for those moments of chilling out before we got ready for the evening entertainment. The beds are firm and although I my partner who suffers with a bad back was ok with it, I found I woke up with a back ache each morning...nothing an Ibuprofen couldn't sort. Throughout the hotel it's very clean and each member of staff is very helpful. There are posters and various bits of paper on the pin board to keep you updated of the entertainment and events happening in and out of the hotel. Weather was also updated on the boards and the daily changing menu was there for all to see.
Moving onto the menu, it was changed daily which was nice to have that variation. At breakfast there were cereal, fruit and cooked options. Omelette was also available freshly cooked while you wait. The evening meal was also very good with more than one option for starters, main meals and also deserts. There certainly were no problems with everyone going up for 2nd's and 3rd's for each course....I can't fault the food in anyway at all. I was pleasantly surprised by it.
There was also a good variety of beverages available which was definately to my liking.
The pool area was nice too. Very clean and plenty of sun loungers with parasols to choose from. The pool was cold, however we have just been at the start of the season and it was actually really refreshing when I got to hot. There is a bar next to the pool with beverages and snacks...also included pool table, air hockey and other things.
Lunch is also available even though it's a half board hotel so when I take my children next year the will be happy with that. The entertainment was brilliant every night, my partner was pleased that they play bingo every night and I won't spoil it but it's very funny with the way they do it. If you are taking children, be prepared to be pulled up on stage for the kids mini disco...I was....and secretly I quite enjoyed it.
Gill who is the Entertainments Manager is an absolute credit to the hotel and is one the big reasons for going back next year. If you go please say hi to here from me.
The waiters and also the staff which you don't see behind the scenes are what make this hotel so great and again is a big reason for us returning next year.
There is an adults only room upstairs and also some of that is seperated off so the men can watch the sports. Below the adults only room there is a kids room with pool tables, air hockey, arcades and also a seating area with an LCD TV showing kids movies from time to time.
The beach is also lovely, quite surreal when lying on the beach listening to the waves and also the ducks quacking while they skim the small lake running up the side of the hotel.
There is a Marina about 10 mins walk along the front and 5 mins further will take you into the centre of Ca'N Picafort itself which has lots of palm trees and an array of shops!
The staff at this hotel are willing to go out of the way to help you and ensure you are having a great time.
I suggest anyone who is looking for a nice holiday with or without children should go here. I really cant say enough about this place...other than I'm going again next year with the kids and I know they will love it.
