This is a smaller family (Mallorcan/ Scottish) owned hotel in a very central location. The family is very friendly and helpful and the hotel and rooms are clean and well kept. The hotel offers tasty cooked breakfasts and lunch at reasonable prices and is very flexible with extra requests for vegetarians etc.
One side of the hotel is on the main road and the other side looks over the pedestrian shopping street with Cafés and restaurants. It can be a little noisy but when the balcony doors are shut you don't hear the evening noise and the rooms have air conditioning.
The big advantage of this hotel is the short distance to the beach, just 200 metres at the end of the pedestrian street. With all the shops and restaurants just outside the hotel. There is even an Aldi about 100 metres away and the bus stop to places like Alcudia just outside the hotel.
Rooms and bathrooms are spacious and the beds are very comfy.
The highlight for us at this hotel was the adequately sized hotel pool and the pool area. Very relaxing and quiet, sunbeds were always available and bar snacks and drinks can be ordered around the pool. The pool and the whole patio area was exceptionally clean.
The only negative point was currently no WiFi available in the rooms, only in the bar area. But I understand this may change soon and it didn't affect our holiday in any negative way.
We would definitely return if we visit Can Picafort again. It was a perfect holiday!

We were in room 204, overlooking the main road and Trotters bar, the bathroom had a very strong stench on urine and the shower tray was stained yellow, yuk!
Room was very basic (no kettle, fridge etc) didn’t bother us too much as we eat and drink out anyway.
Biggest issue was the maids would come in every two days to clean room and change towels but would take our dirty towels and not leave fresh ones, which resulted in us constantly having to go down to reception to ask for them and would take ages! So delayed us getting ready to go out.
The sliding door to the balcony was really stiff, needed to put some proper elbow grease in to open it.
We also had a leak in our room, not sure what this was from we thought it was due to someone above us showering but the guy who came to look at it thought it was an aircon issue.
Aircon unit was located in a weird place between the bathroom (nowhere near the bed) so you could hardly feel it.
Good points are the staff seemed friendly enough, we ate there one day (small breakfast) which was lovely and reasonable priced. Also had a couple cocktails on evening, again nice and good priced. Location is great, top of the strip and few mins from the beach, also next to the bus stops. I’d recommend exploring further a field for the day and getting a bus to alcudia or Palma, we went alcudia only took 20 mins.
Overall very average and get what you pay for, would probably stay again if I was a tight budget.

We came to Africamar for a 5 night stay and have just returned today.
We arrived at 2am and initially was a little sceptical of the hotel we had chosen (however everywhere looks worse when arriving in the dark). We’d only booked it a few days before and wanted a cheap and cheerful get away. It was an extremely clean, friendly and family run hotel which we would recommend and return to in a heart beat. We were initially sceptical due the outdated decor however once settled in, this only adds to the charm. The owners and employees could not do enough for us. It was the first time travelling with our 6 month baby and as new parents we were nervous but the hotel put us at ease, they leant us their personal baby bouncer and a high chair for the room! We spoke to lots of other guests, many of who return every year, some for the last 18 years, and I can see why!
It’s in a great location, far enough away so you don’t hear loud music from the busier parts of the town, but close enough to be on the beachfront within 5-10 minutes.
The full English English breakfast was one of the best we’ve had, so make sure you try that!
Overall a perfect little last minute getaway.

If you're looking for a nice hotel, situated in a nice part of Mallorca, for a decent price, lovely staff and an all round lovely stay, book a JS

Wow. What a stay at Africamar... First off €30 for tourist tax when the rate is €4pp so it was obvious that this was going to be a rip off and boy... You've no idea. When I tell you the only benefit is the small bit of sea you can see from the balcony I'm not joking.

Upon arrival you're met with a dated looking interior. A bored looking Scotsman then proceeded to rob us of €22 for 'tourist tax' (that's the bit at the top I said was €4pp) and handed us a paperweight with a small key attached. Room was on the 4th floor, which was ideal for getting our slither of decent view, so we took our cases and went in the lift. The lift allows a second for anything wanting in the lift to embark before closing, regardless of who or what is in it's path.

The room itself, 415 for reference to anybody taking note, is tired. The balcony door is loose in the railings and decides at will when it will move side to side, up or down, or even at all. There is no fridge, or for that matter anything that may make home comfort. No this says dated like not even providing a fridge. Don't even bother with the TV. Half the wardrobes are simply locked from use. Not one time sheets were replaced were they clean, always some interesting colour of stain, usually green. After night one the room was inundated with ants and the AC leaked water from the ceiling (which is bowing) on to the floor. Notified the desk jockey who decided that the cleaner will sort that instead of a handyman. Lazy or tight I don't know. The cleaners just sweep crumbs, or anything really, under the beds. I had to sort the shower drain out because it almost flooded the bathroom. Manky hair and grime that looked borderline fousty.

The lounge area of the hotel was also run down, the spectacle clad local Geordie just has no mannerisms and the blonde woman could do with ceasing to roll her eyes every time she has to speak to, well, anybody. I don't think a single member of staff knows how to run a hotel, except maybe the abuelas behind the cloudy door??

If you fancy a swim in the pool I assure you just go to the sea. Half the pool surround will trip you up and if you get in to the pool you're met with utter mank. The bottom of the pool around the filter has been left unclean that the plague probably still exists in amongst the grime, plasters and random pair of I assume knickers.

If you're looking for a nice hotel, situated in a nice part of Mallorca, for a decent price and a lovely stay, book a JS

Booked a last minute break here was hardly any availability left in resort after reading reviews thought Africamar would be a decent 3 star I was wrong!! I’d read reviews about fantastic staff they must of all been hiding as we didn’t come across any . We were checked in by who I think was owner/manager worst greeting Iv ever had her only words were passports and tourist tax no info on hotel given and we had to find our way to the lift(which is far to small fits about 1 suitcase in) corridors smell of chip fat and have more of an hostel style than hotel ! Now the room I was expecting basic but not this basic mixed with a damp vile smell in bathroom underneath shower screen was green with mould and dirt ! Shower tray was stained a yellowish light brown instead of white very nice!! Only one hook in bathroom no tooth brush holder /cup and lovely sliding door all split and damaged the towels were disgusting glad I took my own . Beds generally clean again glad I’d got my own pillow cases room not dirty but cleaned properly hotel needs a refit . Pool area is small with only 3 parasols this area and reception were clean though . I got the impression if you were a regular customer or returns every year or Scottish you were made welcome a big shout out to rude big built Spanish guy behind the bar he served me twice so unpleasant and rude he didn’t get chance again as we never brought another drink in there . Hotel in good location at the top of the main strip little bit noisy at night if you stayed in but hotel so bad you wouldn’t! Been coming to can picafort for years and have stayed in a few different hotels I normally go 4 star but iv stayed in 3 star before in resort and had 3 star facilities. I’m just thankful it was a short break!!!

This was our first visit to Can Picafort and we booked our ten day trip via Jet2 holidays. Ten days was simply not enough. I opted to stay at The Africamar Hotel based on its incredible reviews and ratings left by other guests. Let me tell you, Africamar exceeded our expectations. I can’t quite explain how special this place is. It’s a place with genuine care, feeling and love. Thank you Juan and Deirdre, you should be so proud of the atmosphere and ambience you have created. In fact, it’s so special no amount of money can buy what you have to offer. A very special thanks to the bar/waiting staff. Nacho who makes the most incredible Mai Tai cocktails and not forgetting the very lovely and adorable Tom who will go out of his way to make you feel at home.
On arrival the rooms appear basic, but if you are going on holiday to live in your hotel room then this hotel isn’t really for you. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable and we loved the waterfall shower. Rooms cleaned every two days with fresh sheets and towels provided. You can request additional accessories for your room such as a fridge, kettle, iron, towels from reception. If you need anything just ask and as if by magic it will appear. The bar provides a delicious breakfast and lunch menu and a huge selection of drinks all of which are reasonably priced. The pool area is small but there are no towel wars and there is more than enough sun loungers to accommodate guests. As an additional bonus for the kids, a selection of inflatables are available free of charge. Wi-Fi is available in the pool/bar area only. There is an enormous TV in the bar area so you don’t miss those all important sports games (ask Deidre to tell you the TV story, it’s hilarious) and a pool table is available. To our surprise almost every guest we encountered had visited this hotel on more than one occasion. In fact the majority had been returning for the last 18 years (on average). This alone speaks volumes and is testament to service you can expect. The highlight of our visit was the sense of community created in the bar area on an evening, there was a real camaraderie amongst other guests and it’s really lovely that the owners came out to join us. We have made some lifelong friends. If you’ve read this far then you’ve probably realised that we are absolute converts. Can Picafort is a fabulous resort and we cannot wait to return to Africamar. The hotel is centrally located, 10 minutes walk away from the beach and surrounded by lots of beautiful restaurants, shops and supermarkets. Thank you so much for helping us create so many happy memories. Luke and Jonners.

The hotel is 3 star and we didn’t expect anything more than basic. What we got was a lovely warm welcome, very big one bedroom apartment with a lovely balcony, lovely little pool area that never got too busy and lovely friendly staff and great service. The bar food is lovely and fresh. The drinks are cold and the cocktails made fresh . The place is immaculate, yes it’s older but it’s careworn. There are a few loose pieces of the grid around the pool but nothing dangerous. For us, a couple in our late 50s it was perfect. Location is just a stroll to the beautiful beach. Perhaps wouldn’t suit everyone but for us it’s perfect.

Absolute Brilliant hotel for a three star.Great breakfast and friendly staff.Nothing to much trouble I asked for a kettle for my stay so I could brew up in my room,they obliged the room (114) was basic but spotless,with clean towels replaced every second day. The 9 Euro breakfast was delicious and served with a smile, not once did any of the staff refuse any requests I think because it's family members that run it they go that extra mile, especially George the night time receptionist,the local beer is a good price at €3 a pint. I use calipers and a walking stick so sometimes I slip due to wet floors especially and obviously near the swimming pool, they made sure it was dry enough for me to get a sun bed I have stayed in worse 5 Star hotels than this 3 star hotel.so if you want to stay in a great priced hotel this is for you,in the words of Arnold Schwarzenegger,I will be back,Hasta la vista!!

We've just returned from a great 2 weeks in the Africamar. Location is great with everything close to hand, always plenty of sun loungers available. Staff were all very friendly especially the barman & the cleaning staff did a great job. The family who run the hotel were always on hand & ready to help with any issues.

We arrived about 11pm by coach which was 1 hour 45 min transfer. There’s was no one in reception but the bar man told us someone would be with us shortly. A lady then welcomed us and asked for our passport which she copied and asked if we were aware of the tourist tax which we were. She gave us the bill for the amount which we paid in euros along with 10e for the safety deposit safe key for our room. She gave us the room key & pointed out the lift & where our room was (408). We asked when the bar closed ( 12 midnight). We were room only. The room was basic but clean, at the back of hotel with sea view to the side. Double bed, TV, small wardrobe with hanging space & shelves. Only 4 hangers. 2 sides to the wardrobe were locked? No fridge. Door to balcony only opened halfway & was loose and extremely difficult to open & close. My husband used deod & sun spray to lubricate it the next day & it worked a treat! Bathroom quite modern with walk in shower, hairdryer, soap, shampoo & towels provided. Plenty of toilet roll. Air con included & adequate. We asked for more pillows and a kettle ( cups & sachets also provided) at the bar. Towels changed, bin emptied & bed made twice for our 6 day stay. Room extended for 4 hours on our leaving day with no charge ( on the day the maid made the bed, emptied bin & took our towels though…!). Kettle replaced no problem when it became faulty. We were only in the room to shower & sleep, it was adequate for our needs. Drinks at the bar reasonably priced. We didn’t eat at the hotel as we like to eat out. Seating area inside & around pool area. Plenty of good sunbeds ( only 3 sun brollies) at front of hotel on roadside. All staff friendly & helpful ( we are English - some previous reviews implied if you are not Scottish they are not?). Lovely beach a short walk away with sunbeds (chargeable). Bars, restaurants & shops nearby & walkable. We walked along promenade to marina too. Great holiday for the price we paid.
