This place gives you a choice of two lagoon pools, and it’s just a short walk to the beach.
Location-wise, this place is pretty central. You only have to cross a main road, walk for a few minutes and you’re at the beach, while it’s less than a five-minute walk to C’an Picafort’s shops, bars and restaurants.
The hotel has two lagoon pools, and children get a little splash park, too. Elsewhere, there are two restaurants – including an Italian bistro – and a chic rooftop bar for after-dinner cocktails.

Nice hotel but worth reading before booking...
Just returned from a week long stay at the Gran Vista with my wife and 11 month old. Overall we would rate 3.5 out of 5 and in line with most of the reviews you'll read the hotel is very clean and the staff are friendly. We were quite disappointed with the size of the twin room because the pictures advertised by Thomson made them seem a lot bigger and with the addition of a cot there wasn't much room in there at all. I would recommend booking a suite or an apartment if you are travelling with children otherwise you will be disappointed. Our room overlooked a few trees and a road which wasn't nice and it was quite a walk from the main reception area to our room but luckily you can put yourself on a waiting list to move rooms once a better one becomes available which we did and after 2 days moved to a higher floor overlooking the pool and the mountains. Annoyingly the walls are quite thin and you can hear people above and next to you which was frustrating, especially when the cleaners start work at 06:00 and move furniture around. The bed set up in the room was 2 single beds side by side and don't think there are options to have a double. Also as the floors are tiled if anyone above you has heels on then it's very frustrating. The area around the hotel was nice in terms of shops and restaurants but many were German as it is very popular with German tourists and you can see the influence in the hotels breakfast and dinner buffet too. The food was average with desert options being the highlight each day and there were lots of options of where to sit also. The rooftop bar was nice and probably the highlight of the hotel for us. Overall we enjoyed our stay but we wouldn't return. If you have children do not book a twin room as they are much smaller than the pictures suggest.More

Myself and husband have just returned from 2 weeks at the Gran Vista & Spa in Ca'n Picafort. The hotel is absolutely excellent from the food, to cleanliness, to the wonderfully happy and friendly staff (who the management should be proud of). There was not one day when we had any complaints about the food as every morning and evening there was something fresh and tasty and I challenge anyone to say there wouldn't be something they would like. Fortunately we were given an apartment when we arrived, on the fourth floor in block 2 which overlooked the sea, so that was an unexpected bonus. The grounds are extensive, with lots and lots of sun beds, so no rushing out to grab one in the mornings. The only thing I would comment on is the evening entertainment which is a bit hit and miss but all the entertainment boys and girls work really hard and are so friendly and helpful (even my husband tried aqua aerobics which is unheard of). There is a roof top bar which is open every night with live music on a few nights and it is lovely up there with great views All in all a brilliant holiday. The beach is only a few minutes walk away, down a shop and bar lined walkway. We will definitely be visiting again.More
We stayed in the main hotel, we had a nice room number 253 we were overlooking the back of the hotel so not much of a view but it was quiet. The hotel itself is very nice, the rooms were clean and well kept. The food was not great but adequate sometimes not hot enough and the eggs in the morning were underdone. The dining room was very crowded. Breakfast was 7.45 to 10.30 which was good, but dinner was 18.30 to 21.00 which we found was a bit early to finish and people were often still eating at 21.00 although the staff did not try to herd us out. The rooftop bar is lovely with great views, a nice place to sit early evening. The entertainment was a bit naff with children's entertainment on until 21.00 and adult's from 21.15 although sometimes the children were still running around when theres had finished. We couldn't fault the staff who were always happy to help. The german lady that does the exercise classes was very good although i only did one yoga class, as it was predominantly german I didn't feel i would be able to follow a step class! All in all a nice holiday.More
We were greeted with welcome drinks and information about the hotel etc. We stayed in the apartments (not in the main hotel). These apartments were spotlessly clean along with the rest of the hotel. Our rooms were cleaned daily with towels/toiletries/sheets replenished. Our balcony was enormous with table/chairs and a drying rack for wet clothes, towels etc. In the kitchen area a welcome pack was provided which included washing up liquid, anti-bac cleaner, sponge, bin liner and a tea towel. Whilst we were unpacking, our room telephone rang and the reception enquired if our room was satisfactory and were we happy with everything which we thought was a very nice touch. On our second night, we were invited up to the rooftop bar to meet the manager and have a free drink. The food in the hotel (stayed half-board) was extremely good. Catering also for gluten-free plus a children's station if needed. The spa was spotless, very well equipped with pool, sauna, Turkish bath, cold room etc. The treatments were reasonable - my wife had a very relaxing back and leg massage. Our son visited the gym, he told us it was well equipped.The shops/bars/restaurants/bus stops were literally a few minutes walk from the hotel and the beach was a 10 minute walk away. We cannot fault this hotel for friendliness/cleanliness/food and do not understand how some people could give it such negative reviews. We would definitely recommend this hotel!More
