"Nice Hotel mainly for families with young children"
Not entirely impressed with Expedia and the transfers. Had to call Expedia on arrival to sort out transfers and spent 40 minutes On my mobile. Not a good start to holiday. Arrived after nearly 3 hours. Lovely clean hotel. Staff very helpful. Rooms very clean and comfortable. The hotel is geared towards families with young children. My teenager was bored stiff. Entertainment similar to Butlins. Food repetitive and was like school dinners very bland! Restaurant times too rigid - dinner was 6pm to 8.45pm?? The sandwiches on offer were all ham and cheese. If you didn't eat pork there was no alternative. One bar open at one time so constant queuing. 3 people serving 500 guests! the staff were fabulous and worked so hard. Pools were nice with some activities. Hated the fact you had to set alarm to get up early to reserve sun beds. Got cabin fever after 3 days and needed to walk to beach. Only 10 minute walk and lots of places to eat and drink. Overall a very nice hotel but would not return.

"An absolute pleasure to stay at Hotel Valentin. "
After a five year absence from visiting Mallorca, it was decided my partner and I were well-overdue a trip back to this absolutely stunning island.
We had an incredible time at Hotel Valentin. Location wise, it is a 5-minute walk to Playa de Muro through the dunes of the local Natural Park, and a mere 10-minute walk to the heart of Ca'n Picafort, where you can eat, drink and shop to your heart's content.
We decided to hire a car to explore the island further, however it must be noted that there is a regular bus service that stops directly outside the hotel.
The hotel itself is maintained to the highest of standards, and the pools, bar and restaurant are spotless. The main pool is a great size, with a jacuzzi attached and a smaller, shallower section for young children. There is also a 25m fitness pool with 5-6 lanes that was pretty quiet, but again maintained to the highest standards.
The apartments were an excellent size, with a lovely terrace that had a sun lounger and a table with four chairs. The inside was spacious and again spotlessly clean. My only suggestion would be the modernisation of the bathroom, although clean and ample in size, the shower cubicle and sink/mirror just needed to be revamped to match the impressively high standards throughout the rest of the hotel.
The staff at this hotel are incredible, they have a genuine passion for their work and could not be more helpful. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. We will see you next year Hotel Valentin!

A lovely, peaceful break in a very nice hotel a convenient distance away from the bustle (although in October, much of the "bustle" has subsided. San Baulo is the quiet end of Can Picafort. It has many very good sea front restaurants and a good mix of sandy and rocky shore.
At the north end of Can Picafort, the reed beds and waterways of the Albufera are a terrific contrast to the sea and sand of the beaches.
The location is within easy reach (by car) of Pollensa and Formentor to the north, and the many callas to the south. For people with an interest wildlife, Salinas is well worth a visit. Birds which might be seen include flamingos, egrets and marsh harriers.
Visiting at off-peak times of the year is wonderfully relaxing. I suspect that, in high season, the ambiance would be quite different!

the beds were the comfiest I have experienced when holidaying. rooms very clean but could do with refurbishing as does the dining room, stairs and corridors. the rest of the hotel looks like it has been updated. relaxing atmosphere. the staff are very efficient and approachable. food could have been better i.e. the quality/variety of hot meat. lovely pool and surrounding grounds - plenty of green grass and enough trees for shade. quiet at night as it is away from any bars.

Good hotel and staff. Beds too hard for my better half but just right for me. Needed extra pillows and it was no problem once asked. Restaurant very busy but efficient. Choices a little limited and no coffee available at evening meal.
