Hotel Son Baulo
This hotel really delivers on location – it’s on a golden-sand beach, and there’s a nature reserve next door.
This spacious, modern hotel is dotted with trendy artwork and sculpture. Outdoors, there’s a lagoon pool with great coastal views. And inside, there’s a buffet restaurant with regular Majorcan nights.
With direct access to Son Baulo Beach. Shops and restaurants are just a minute’s walk away. And it’s a 20-minute stroll along a palm tree-lined prom to the centre of Ca’n Picafort.

A great hotel, fantastic staff, all friendly and helpful. Good varied food, something for everyone. Rooms clean and comfortable. Wonderful setting, on the beach with great views. This was our 8th visit..just love this hotel! More
This was our fourth time at the son baulo hotel, we love it. The food is great, the location it fantastic, the hotel is very clean and tidy and all the staff are lovely. We're have never had a problem with anything at this hotel. it is true that the air con is off from 6am-1pm, however we were out of the room by 10.30 after breakfast so this didn't bother us at all. The wifi in the room is terrible and I wouldn't pay for it again. We're had a superior sea view room so had a fridge and kettle included. We watched the entertainment a few nights and it's ok. In fact we love it so much that we have already booked again for next year, but this time we have booked 2 rooms for us and our daughter and her partner as he wants to see how great this hotel is.More

Superior Room.... Seriously
As soon as we checked in I wanted to check out. The receptionist didn't smile or give us a warm welcome, it was passport and tourist tax here's your key. We wasn't given any information about the hotel where anything was, we wasn't told anything about the room or the area. The 'Superior Room' is selling itself on the view alone. The room isn't very superior, the balcony is dirty with cracked plaster and paintwork. The clothes dryer was hanging off the wall. There is a very big step down into the balcony. We wasn't told we had a fridge included until 3 days in when we went to ask to rent a fridge and was told it was included but they had forgotten to give us the key. The fridge wasn't plugged in and we have to plug it in ourselves. It's a very small table top fridge in a cupboard with no handle - we used the spoon to open the door. The tea & coffee facilities is just a kettle and 2 cups. The bed was comfy but the pillows are too hard and too large not like sleeping pillows, I made my own out of a duvet in the wardrobe. One morning we was having a lazy day and wasn’t ready for the maids so when they knocked we got the towels changed but on our way out we asked reception to ask the maids to change the bed as they were still on our floor and this wasn’t done. Almost like if you miss your chance to get your bed changed you wont get it done. There is no bathmat on the floor in the bathroom so you look like a newborn giraffe getting out of the shower. The air conditioning is centrally controlled so it's switched off at 4am so you cannot sit in your room first thing in the morning as it's far too hot. The hotel information says you are forbidden to iron in your room. There are lots of do’s & don’t and it feels more like a school trip. There is only one lift on each side of the hotel and each one can only carry 4 persons. I have reduced mobility and rely on the lift. There is no where to sit and wait if the lift is busy. And the stairs were completely unusable as they were very wide and no bannister on the wall side. The main entrance to the dining hall was down very wide and very steep steps about 10 altogether and I wasn’t able to use this entrance or exit. The only way in or out for me as a disabled guest was up a ramp which led straight into the bar when the children’s entertainment was on so I immediately felt unsafe with it being extremely busy. The dinner is 6pm-9pm so we went around 8pm one night and there are 2 sides of the food area offering the same item’s so I sat near to the food as it is difficult using a walking stick in one hand and trying to carry a plate in the other and there was no trays available. Whilst starting to eat dinner they shut one side of the area down at 8.15pm so everyone on our side was then forced around to the other side making que’s twice as long and when you got to the item you was waiting for only to find it had gone because the demand was too great. If the food is served up to 9pm it should be available on both sides of the canteen longer than 8.15pm. One night whilst having dinner we had drinks and asked to pay by card the waiter went away shaking his head and arms because there seems to be only 1 card machine between the waiters but they wont be able to charge to your room because you have no number on your room card. I don’t think it is monitored very well and I’m sure none guests can use it without being challenged which is poor service when I have had to pay for half board. There is no waiter service at breakfast is because there is nothing to sell. The staff hover over you and first sign you have finished with a plate it's whipped away. It isnt a comfortable dining experience. The food isn’t the best and bland. Breakfast is good if you like eggs. But they don’t do fresh juice’s and both juice and hot drinks are from a machine which you have to que for. The juice is more like cordial. When we stayed in for the hotel entertainment there isn’t a toilet in the bar area so I wasn’t able to get to a toilet all night as it was far too busy to work your way through and had to leave the entertainment early just to get to a toilet in my hotel room. The library is up stairs so again if you have a problem with stairs you wont be able to access it. They have ramps around the hotel but these feel like they are for prams and not people the handrails are too low down to support you. When exiting off the beach if you are able to do steps you can go straight into the hotel bar but if like me you need to use a ramp you have to walk through the shower area on the beach which is very wet and slippy and you have no choice but to walk past people very closely who are showering to get to a ramp off the beach. I don't know why but the beach hut leaves their lights on all night so your room is lit up all night if you don't shut the curtains. If you are disabled take your blue badge with you as you get free sunloungers on the beach (and all Alcudia beaches) but the hotel dont tell you this. It is in the magazine they leave in the room. But it would help if the hotel point this out they may say it isnt their job to as the beach isnt anything to do with them but neither is the tourist tax and they share that with you so why not share information around the area. If you question or ask for something of the management you are reminded it is a 3 star hotel. If your mobility isn’t the best don’t attempt the walk into Can Picafort get on the 352 bus which is very near to the hotel, if you fancy a night out that will also take you right into Alcudia Old Town for less than 2 euro’s each and runs up to 11.30pm ish.More
4 night stay, not disappointed
Booked for a long weekend stay Friday to Tuesday. Arrived early Friday morning around 10.00ish and our room was ready. We booked a superior room which was spacious and had good comfortable beds. Great shower and good sized bathroom. Could have done with some hooks to hang some clothing items onetc on but minor detail. Food in the hotel was excellent lots of choice and plenty of choices for vegetarians. We ate out one night in the centre and wished we had stayed in the hotel eat. The stroll into the centre takes about 20 minutes. But there is the land train to take you into the centre and you can hop on and off the last one comes back around 10.30pm from the centre but the taxis are cheap enough if you stay longer and don't fancy the walk back. We used the beach rather than the pool, the sunbed hire was expensive, certainly compared to Greece. €14 if you wanted the ones with the extra padded cushions on the beds these were €19 for 2 but you got a free drink.. 'whoop whoop'!!! Anyway sunbeds/pool individual choices anyway. The stay was wonderful, hotel lovely and clean, food good was not disappointed and would return for sure. Hotel is in a great location away from the centre but easy to get to whether walking or using the land train. More
14 nights not long enough !
Absolutely gutted to be home , had the best holiday ever ! We came to this resort 10 years ago but after reading a few negative reviews wasn’t 100% sure what to expect but I can honestly say our holiday was amazing ! There is good choice of food every evening and it’s a decent standard , the hotel itself and rooms are spotless . Also everyone is so friendly and helpful also special mention to the entertainment which David does ,made it really full and gets everyone involved.... woop woopMore
