This was our fourth visit to this hotel. Our last visit was in 2008.
We are surprised by some of the more negative reviews. We agree and find the more postive comments very detailed and accurate. The hotel is peaceful, despite the option of constant entertainment. We find that you can join in, or find your own quiet space. It is very clean, the food is of a good standard and the staff are friendly and hard working. The entertainment team, Deano, Stacy and co, are very likeable and hard working. The entertainment is varied and more suited perhaps to the over 40s. However, there are local bars (we recommend Scandals Happy Hour which runs from 7pm until midnight and beyond!) and lovely walks along the seafront a few minutes from the hotel.
One night I had smoked salmon as a starter with salad and beef wellington for my main course. I really wonder where I would go locally in England for a meal like this and what it would cost?
I agree that the problem might be comparing hotels and holidays. They are all different and we are all looking for different things. We go back to this hotel for the relaxing atmosphere and excellent staff. When we are looking for something different we select another type of venue.
We agree that the noise emanating from the entertainment can seem to consume the whole hotel but why does it have to be so loud? It would be just as enjoyable at a reduced volume. Entertainment Team - please note! We thought the Phil Collins tribute act was excellent but too noisy (we are in our 50s but love our music) while ex-Brummie Graham Powell, who used to be the compere at the Night Out in B'ham and now lives in Alcudia, is an excellent entertainer. However, there was a sound problem with him. We missed a lot of what he said (very muffled) but great singer though.
The hotel offers very limited TV channels in the bedrooms - CNN (what a bore!) FOX (why?) and Sky News. Most English channels are available via a card available at reception for 2.5 euros per day. Why? Not impressed, and didn't come across any guests who had taken up this option.
Overall though, it's a very well done to all the staff at Picafort Park! We would return without hesitation.
