Good hotel for families
We spent 10 nights at this hotel in July 2015. We were a party of one child age 6 and 6 adults (age ranging from 36-58). Will summarise as below: Food - very good but the queues at dinner time were ridiculous at some stations and in my view the restaurant was not managed very well at times. Some people wanted to access one station but ended up queuing the length of the buffet - there was no need and there only needed to be a separate queuing system in place for the 'fresh cook' areas. Lucky we had family with us so we could go up together with our son otherwise we'd all be eating at different times! Usual canteen experience. The food from the snack bar in the middle of the pools were very good and we opted for this most lunchtimes. Being able to help yourself to bottled water from the fridges at the bars was an added bonus and saved queuing up to get one. Pools - these were great and shallow enough for my son to use without armbands as he could stand up easily. They entertainment staff worked hard and put on a few games which the kids enjoyed. The adult pool was lovely and we managed an hour whilst the grandparents watched our son - it was bliss, though being so close to the main pool - its still relatively loud, but still a nice area to retreat if you can! Entertainment was ok - usually standard at these hotels, though I think the family members that came with us, wish it had gone on to nearer to 12 as once its over its lights off and there's not much of an atmosphere whilst sitting finishing your drinks for the last hour. The kids enjoyed playing on the grass area to the side of the evening entertainment area and it was a safe area to watch them play (though watch they could still get in the water area on the side!). However the down side some of the older boys sometimes played football and wiped out a table or two of drinks on 2 occasions. We tended to choose a table slightly in from this area. That said it wasn't an issue and it was nice to be able watch the kids have fun and most of the parents were responsible and spoke to their children if they got a bit excitable. Beach was lovely and a 10 min walk away though you do have negotiate a lot of dog mess in the park on the way - so just watch where you are walking! Room was lovely and spacious - no issues and the complex was kept spotlessly clean. Drinks were branded and included - just have to make sure to ask for 'Bacardi' rather than rum as you will get the local spirits otherwise, which to be fair are fine anyway. Spirits come in a huge goldfish bowl glass so less trips to the bar! Most of the staff we encountered were lovely, a few looked like they were ready for the quieter season to begin - but who could blame them. In summary we had a lovely holiday and would have returned to the hotel, except we weren't overly keen on the area of Ca'n Picafort as we feel there are much nicer places in Majorca to stay.More

Never thought I wanted Air Conditioning
We had, I think our 5th visit to the Africamar in Sept this year. We knew the price had gone up since last year but we were advised they now had air conditioning in every room. OMG how did we survive without it! To come back each day to a cool room to relax was just brilliant. As usual Juan and all the staff were excellent, particularly Nacho in the Bar and Suzanne in the restaurant. Writing this now as it is time to start thinking about next year - cannot wait.More
Great half term autumn break.
We stayed for 1 week in October, All Inclusive. Hotel was great. All staff were very attentive and polite. The amenities were excellent for our 9 year old; She enjoyed the Kids Club, splash pool, mini golf, and the Pony ride for 6 euros. The hotel is made up of low rise blocks (3 floors), set in well kept gardens which made it a very pleasant place to spend the day. Food was excellent with a wide ranging buffet at every meal time. The beach was about 15 minute slow stroll away. The sea was great to swim in but a little too choppy for our young daughter. The hotel was not too crowded at the start of the week and almost empty at the end as it was due to shut the following week for the winter. All in all, highly recommended.More
Fantastic experience of an all inclusive resort
We booked this holiday after looking at the tripadvisor reviews and believed it would be ideal for us since we have two children aged 4 and 8. We were not disappointed with our choice. We stayed during October half term and the hotel was quiet particularly during the end of the week, a bonus for us as we avoided crowded swimming pools and noisy mealtimes ( I'm sure that this would be the case in high season) The hotel was immaculately clean. The selection of food was immense - yes at times it wasn't very warm but we tried to get to the restaurant for the start of food service to ensure it was hotter. It is a buffet and inevitably hot food will get cold. You can order freshly cooked food from the poolside bar at lunchtime if you want hotter food. The all-inclusive drinks were amazing - our kids loved the chocolate milkshakes and we loved the cocktails. We paid extra for our son to take part in the football course unfortunately because it was the end of the season it was only on for 3 days. I think the cost of this was expensive, 50 euros for 2 hours each day. However the coaching was excellent and our son thoroughly enjoyed the sessions. Our daughter enjoyed going to the kids club which has different activities each hour, so she was able to pick and choose the ones she wanted to join in with. It is well organised and the entertainers have so much enthusiasm. The play area is small but sufficient and has a trampoline, bouncy castle and play structure with slides. The BUFO disco every night was the highlight of my daughters day she loved dancing with the other children and BUFO. The other evening entertainment wasn't great - although there was an acrobatic/juggling act one night that was really impressive. The hotel has a good amount of swimming pools to choose from. The bigger swimming pools were freezing at times - the kids splash pool was a comfortable temperature all week. The indoor swimming pool did get crowded, it is quite small and it also didn't have a lifeguard. The hotel is located about a 10 minute walk up a slight hill from the beach and town. The beach is quite small and I imagine would be very crowded in the summer. We hired bikes one day and cycled along the coast to platja de muro and port d'alcudia both of which had bigger and more beautiful beaches. We also travelled into Palma, but we were surprised at the cost of bus travel almost 40 euros return for 3 people (children over 5 travel at the same cost as an adult). We visited Palma cathedral which was spectacular and well worth a visit. The hotel staff are a credit to the hotel everyone we saw were working hard and were polite and friendly. The reception staff deserve a special mention they were always so busy but always cheery and helpful. Finally a word of advice if you are visiting at the end of the summer don't forget a bottle of insect repellent. We had luckily read about the chance of being bitten by mosquitos so had come prepared but still managed to collect a rather impressive number of bites between us.More
Good family holiday
We visited for a week in September 2016 on a self catering basis. 2 adults and one toddler. The apartments were comfortable. We had one bedroom with a separate lounge area that contained a small kitchenette. This had a fridge, small cooker and hob, kettle. Rooms were clean and maid service good. If you book all inclusive here there aren't a huge amount of options. But we've probably just been a bit spoilt on a previous trip. There's one bar open in the day. Another for the evening. Buffet food was good. We went self catering and you can use these facilities on a pay as you go basis, but beware that it's all cashless so you will a generate a bill to be paid at the end of your stay (this can be cash I expect, but we used our visa). Location really good. Just a 10 minute stroll to the beach (for accessibility I'll just point out the hotel is slightly on a hill) and the front where there are lots of lots of shops and restaurants so self catering was not a problem at all. There's a large supermarket about 5 minutes away and lots of spar type places town towards the beach. Really decent apartments with a good buffet, decent drinks at the bar, a great kids pool area and good location to the beach.More
