“So so”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

As others have alluded to, the room was tired but spacious. There were two single beds pushed together and a third that looked a little out of place near the balcony. There was also a small kitchen area with a fridge and microwave. The beds looked uncomfortable, and at first they were, however once we had removed the awful plastic mattress covers they weren't too bad. The air conditioning was from another age; noisy, but ultimately effective. The worse thing about our room (2101) was the fact that it was over the snack bar so constantly smelt of cooking oil.

The hotel is about a kilometre from the beach at Can Picafort so takes about 10 minutes to walk to, although there is plenty of parking along the front. Can Picafort isn't exactly the most picturesque part of the island though and personally if a day on the beach is your thing then I would recommend the beautiful beach at Es Cana about 5 km away.

Most of the hotel’s guests are on a package holiday with German tour operators Alltours, and their ‘reps’ can often be spotted around the place encouraging games of Water Polo and organising the ‘evening entertainment’. I always avoid such things like the plague, but thankfully it was all in German so I couldn't really make out what was going on. I must say that I fail to understand my fellow contributors’ criticisms that most of the guests of a foreign hotel were for foreigners. Besides, I generally find Germans most agreeable, except for their chain smoking and their inability to grasp the concept of queuing. The entertainment made quite a racket, but thankfully ceased around 11 pm. The hotel is then mercifully quiet until 8 am when it sounds as though a building wide game of chess is taking place, with chairs and beds being used as pawns and knights. I assume this was the cleaners as it lasted exactly 40 minutes.

The dining experience was more functional than luxurious. The area is a little canteen like, but the food was always tasty, and there was arguably too much variety. I found the Paella and the pistachio ice cream to be particularly good (not together, clearly).

The pool area was spacious enough, if a little uninspiring. My only real criticism was that there are only two poolside showers and they are both quite hidden (for 4 days I was convinced there was only one), which doesn't encourage their use. I seemed to be the only person bothering to shower before entering the pool. There was a certain amount of sand accumulated in parts of the pool that should have been vacuumed.

Overall the hotel is fairly middle of the road. It’s not bad, but it’s certainly not somewhere that one would long to go back to. The owners need to invest if they wish to keep their 4 star status.

i am disabled and spent 10 nights A/I at this hotel they claim they are disability friendly with disabled parking and priority reservation of sunbeds dining room tables etc., what a load of rubbish !.we where the only english speaking family in the whole complex the other 99% were german. i felt so sorry for our grandkids as all entertainment was in german and the kids clubs were all in german the swimming instructions were German, leaving our children completely out of every activity,one day bringing our 3yr old granddaughter into the kids play club room to paint and draw the german rep ran over put her out and locked the door. they totally ignored us everywhere we went in the complex ostracizing us ,not one spoke to us or tried to make any kind of conversation the whole 10 days so if you want to know what lepers feel like when isolated then spend a holiday in this hotel and also if you are disabled you will soon find out what discrimination against you is like. the german's push and shove their way into everything I did complain to the hotel management and requested a reserved sun bed, this was promised that the next morning I would have one, I am still waiting. the food was quite good, the rooms need updating, the beds are rock hard, the air/con is rubbish, the TV's channels are all in german and Spanish the pools are quite good. If we had known that the hotel was all germans (who can all speak good english) we would never ever have booked it. a 2** in my book a waste of time and money. one good point ! the sun shown the whole 10 days

Room Tip: just don't book it

Thanks for your stay in our hotel and sorry for the discrimination you felt.
Most of the guests are German and because of this everything is focused to them, since last year slowly but with no stop we are changing this system.

We booked this hotel since it looked ok in the pictures and had all the features we where looking for when traveling with a two year old. Ok when it came to price.

Our first impression was when we checked in at the hotel, and the person in the reception greeted us by being unfriendly and not at all service minded. During our stay, we felt that the personel working in the restaurant and the cleaning staff where really friendly and service minded, while some of the personel working in the reception and the bar where uninterested and not very customer focused.

The hotel is situated on the outskirts of Can Picafort. As someone else wrote, it's a long way to the beach in Alcudia, yes it is because the hotel is in Can Picafort. There is a really nice beach in Can Picafort too, and it only takes about 5-10 minutes to walk to it. There is also some decent shops and restaurants in the center of Can Picafort close to the beach.

The rooms felt a bit old and needs some work to be a part of a 4-star property. The beds are from the 70's but the size of the rooms are good.

The pool area was good and did not feel crowded during our stay.

Entertainment at the hotel is only in german, and some of it was held outside keeping the whole hotel awake until 22.30-23.00 at night. There where 95% germans when we where there.

We chose the All Inclusive option when booking, and I can't say that we where impressed. By the service and personel in the restaurant, yes. By the food, no.

Overall an ok stay at this resort, but I don't know if I would stay there again. Nothing was really bad and nothing was great (except some of the staff). Not a 4-star property, more like a 3-star...

Unfortunately the hotel failed to live up to our expectations of a four star hotel. Our Air conditioning didn't work, when we arrived late Saturday night. We assumed that they would get it fixed, as we informed the reception right away! But it wasn't until Friday (6 days later) that we finally got some relief at night. Just in time as we were leaving the next day.

The hotel has not been maintained properly, which is evident in a number of ways.
The pool is nice and large and has something for everyone. Unfortunately the drain gutter, where the water spills over is old and covered with mould fungus! Very nasty for grown ups, but even nastier for young children that have their hands on there all the time.
Also the sun beds were all so old and worn, that the support underneath was broken and the fabric stretched, so they were uncomfortable and all of our backs hurt after a short time.

The staff at the reception was rude and unhelpful, even though they advertise that if you have any questions, please come ask at the reception!

The staff at the restaurant and the cleaning staff were wonderful! Smiling and helpful, and really made us feel welcome! The food was fine, and the children loved the All Inclusive, and we did as well. The food is not advanced, so it is very suitable for a family with small children. Fresh fruit at every meal, snacks throughout the day, all the soda and beer you can drink - easy and nice.

So all in all the parents come away feeling like we overspent as the hotel is clearly not a 4 star hotel! We did have a nice time with the children, who loved it all, so this is just to let you know, that the description on the their website is not even close to being a 100% correct!

Where to start...

On arrival the staff were unfriendly, miserable and unhelpful, did not offer any assistance or guidance or give any form of information at all. We were given the room with the worst view, looking over an unpleasant patch of green.

The hotel is designed in a way that almost blocks the sun out everyday making this add more to the misery of staying there. It had the worst location compared to all the other hotels, furthest away from the beach and shops.

Most deffinately not a four star hotel as they claim, the rooms are basic, beds are ridiculously hard and uncomfortable. The hotel werent able to provide us with an adaptor for our UK plugs, or an iron to use, although you could of course pay a stupid amount to get this done for you... When actually using the plug sockets, they were so cheaply made the force of removing a plug would almost pull all the plastic surrounding it out of the wall, noticing this after i had a little shock myself.

If you are not german then do not stay here, everything is in german, the tv channels, information, pretty much everything. If you are german then i still would not reccoment this hotel, horrible, miserable atmosphere that will make you want to spend as little time as you can at the hotel, even if you have to walk miles to get back and forth from the beach and shops.

You will regret you chose to stay here...

Aside from a little worn interiors, Alzinar Mar were a very nice hotel. Good location.Big and nice pool and poolarea. Fresh and good food with good variety. We where eleven persons and everyone found something too eat. But if you didn't you always had the snackbar with delicious Hamburgers, Baguettes, Nuggets, chps.
Staff where excellent... Especially the restaurant staff, who did everything with a smile. Entertainment was certanly good if you were German.. :-)
Everything is in German, but if you're aware of it there is no problem. What can improve? update the room interior,
nameplates on the food served, some removable sun umbrellas.
Overall a very successful holiday in a very good hotel.
Can really recommend this hotel to others.

Me, my daughter (11 yrs) and my spouse stayed at the Eix Alzinar for a week. The hotel claims that it is a four star hotell and that is not at all correct. If you book this, you will be very disappointed, if you think this is a cheap 4 star bargain, actually-its a overprised 3 star hotel, and the 4 star is only a smart way to sell rooms that don´t fit the standard for a 4 star. very clever...
The room we had, nr 1212, had a very decorative beed room lamp witch had been in a fire accident. The lamp shade had an uggly burnt out shade!? Strange that the staff dont´t care to change it.

The bed blankets were shabby and the rest of the room was small. The kitchenette didnt have a toaster and other stuff you need, if you stay in an apartment. The beds were at low standard, not comfortable at all. We all slept very bad that week, and a confortable bed IS important. Also the door to the apartment were in thin wood, so you could here everythin going on in the hall area. This is also very dangerous, if a fire might start somewhere in the building. One of the fire doors in the hall area, didnt close!?


If you need help from the staff in the reception, they only know info about Can Picafort, and also say so!? Theyre english skills are at minimum, but they speak solid german though. They also look very uninterested and never smilse. Very sad- I think, when some people are spending alot of money maybe for theyre only holiday week for the whole year. The welcome you will get here is unfortunately, very unpleasant. Ok, what is good then? well the cleaning staff, they clean the rooms very good! The older guy in the bar, is very helpful and friendly. the pool is good and clean. The entertainment seems to be good, but I wouldnt know, though im not german, they only speak german. We didnt go for the all inclusive, and im glad for that. We had breakfast though, and it was, ok. Well, the coffe machine had very sweet coffe, and the variety of the berakfast was ok. maybe not what you expect in a 4 star, but ok for a 3 star buffé. I will not recommend this place if its a 4 star you are looking for. This is a 3 star and my opinion is that you can find a cheaper 3 star with both friendlier staff and with nice welcoming rooms, without burned out lamp shades. The whole impact of my impression if my stay, is dissapointment of the standard. I would rather pay less money at a 3 star, than to get ripped off in a fake 4 star. Also the fire safety aspects, could turn out to be a death trap.
