“good location if you dont mind noise”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

room okay, good location, close to beach, ants a bit of a problem but was sorted straight away, swimming pool just right size, not a place for children as not a lot to do, plenty of eating and drinking places close by, bus stop to alcudia just outside hotel so use that its only 2 euros to go to the thursday market dont pay 15 or so euros to go on an organised excursion. even better still the market down by the marina in can picafort is a lot better market its on a friday 20mins walk from hotel

The hotel itself is lovely. Cheap and cheerful. However the noise from the not so "chillax" restaurant downstairs (same owners as the hotel) disturbed my family and I until past 3 in the morning. This is not acceptable. We were at the back of the hotel too so god knows what the noise was like at the front. ...

Stayed for 5 days from 1st of July. A great hotel run by a British family, very helpful and friendly staff. We were able to keep the room all day on the day of check out which was great. Rooms were clean and everything you needed from a hotel 200m from the beach. Would definitely go back. Really handy to the shops and great restaurants.

Me and my girlfriend decided to book the Africamar hotel after seeing the reviews on trip advisor. Many people said it was great and a fantastic hotel, i agree with some and some others no.

Positives:
- When we got the hotel the people were really nice and allowed us to choose our own room from the available ones. (This was only because we had emailed before and asked for a sea view room and these were not possible)

- It's cheap and what you get for your money is great, a pool to lay next to and the sea literally 5 minutes away.

- All the staff are friendly and helpful with any problems you have.

- On our last day we didn't leave until 18.00 but after asking the manager she arranged for us to have a room with a shower in to freshen up.

Negatives:

- When we chose our room we decided to just drop our things off and head out for a meal. When we got back in tired from the day of travelling my girlfriend went to lay down on the bed and inside the covers there was a stain of a sexual nature which at 12 at night we had to go downstairs in our pjs and ask them to be changed. The owner came in and was really nice and changed them and apologised.

- The next morning we went to get a shower and that didn't work so we had to go back downstairs again and ask for it to be sorted which they did. The shower isnt great but because its cheap everything is going to be basic which we are not bothered about.

The main problem we had with this hotel was the cleanliness. The table on the balcony and the tables in the room were never cleaned. The bed sheets sometimes have stains on them which the cleaners may not see but still this is the very basic regardless of cost. Ive seen another review about the towels etc being outdated which after seeing i do agree they need to be changed.

We stayed at the Africamar in June and had a brilliant week. Having spent the last 10 years going to large all inclusive complexes we were looking forward to something smaller and less like a 'Butlins Abroad'. Ca'n Picafort is at the other end of Majorca from the airport so its quite a journey on the coach what with all the drops in Alcudia but having arrived we received a warm welcome. Our rooms were a very pleasant surprise. I think our room number was 321 and we had two bedrooms with two en-suites a lounge and kitchen between them. I couldn't fault the layout it was so spacious, plenty of wardrobe space and hangers. I've never had so much room in a European hotel! The kitchen had a fridge and microwave fully stocked kitchen with bottle openers, glasses and plates, all perfect. The only snag with our room was it was at the front of the hotel and the road noise is very loud all night really so sleep was disrupted. Other than that faultless even had a double bed in our room. That's the only reason why I didn't give Africamar a five rating but then they can't really be blamed for the road noise.

The hotel has a restaurant called Chillax and they serve the most amazing steaks and pasta dishes. The wine is lovely and they make a cocktail called a strawberry mojito which is the best cocktail I have ever had. Especially nice when laying around the pool area but be warned its a bit lethal even though it tastes so fruity and lovely. The service in Chillax is brilliant and the staff so friendly and warm. They also do the most amazing tapas if you are feeling a bit snacky.

Hotel is a short walk from the beach down a strip of bars and shops. The beach at C'an Picafort is slightly coved and sandy and is about 3.5 miles long with a harbour where you can get boat trips. We went on a trip to Cap de Formentor hoping to see some dolphins on the way. Cap de Formentor is a beautiful area but be warned its a bit on the pricy side having paid 16 euros for a lager and a coke! The boat trip is a lovely day though starting at about 10.00am and returning at about 4.30. Also well worth a visit is a trip to the kart track. A brilliant track with fast karts and all the kit. If you cross the road to Trotters Bar, Mo the owner will ring the track owner who will come and collect you and drop you back off again.

On to Trotters, a lovely bar across the road, where they do a decent English breakfast with far too much to eat. You may be better off getting the child's portion size! Mo is a good laugh and be warned if you win at the bingo you will have to sing karaoke (as I did), but found it quite catching and then I couldn't stop myself - probably upset one of the earlier reviewers on here complaining about the singing from Trotters ha ha!

Also worth a mention if you fancy pizza is Mamma Mia they make the pizza freshly in front of you and they are gorgeous. 40 euros for four pizzas and a bottle of wine, lager and soft drinks I was really impressed.

The rooms were cleaned every other day, the towels are a bit thin but done the job. There is no hairdryers in the room or soap, shampoo etc. There is a safe though.

All in all a wonderful holiday thanks to the friendly staff and warm welcome a lovely relaxed hotel, no manic early mornings for sun beds and met some really lovely people due to the small size of the hotel. In fact they are going back in September and I would love to join them. Enjoy your stay at Africamar, for the price its really rather amazing! :)

This has to be the friendliest hotel we have stayed at with staff and owner who just couldnt do enough for you. We stayed as a family 8 ages ranging from a 2 year old to 40+ and absolutly loved are stay.
The rooms are very clean (basic but more then adequate) pictures dont do them justice...extremly spacious with large balconys. Maids were always very helpful giving us extra towels for having a baby with us and cleaned ours rooms every other day but knocked to check for towels and tissue daily. The restaurant dowmstairs was by far the best on the strip and extremly low in price! We ate their on numerous occassions and their pizza and english breakfasts were by far the nicest we had tried. Their was always sunloungers available and you dont notice your on the strip at all. The owner helped us on a nunber of occasions with cartons of milk fkr the baby once the shop had shut and spendong their own time chanigng our transfers. We would definatly book again!!! I have stayed in 5* hotels and this hotel tops it on hotel service alone!! Recommend a million times over!! Perfectly situated only a stones throw from the beach and the supermarkets/strip. TOPTIP- The only downside is the transfer. Pay extra for the private transfer. Only took 50 minutes and made the return journey so much better then the 3 hours there. Happy holidays xxx

Lovely hotel and staff very friendly.. resort itself is very nice and always something to keep yourself occupied with. Highlight of our trip was visiting the trotters bar which is just over the road. Brilliant evening spent in there and the staff are absolutely brilliant!.definitely worth a try.. food also top notch!!!
