4* adults only hotel
Stay in the bustling resort of C'an Picafort
Visit the nearby beach resort of Alcudia
Have a day out in the capital Palma
Escape the daily grind and join us on a summer holiday to the Spanish Island of Mallorca. We are staying in the adults only 4* THB Gran Playa hotel, in the lovely resort of C’an Picafort, on the island’s north coast.
Our hotel is located in the centre of the popular resort of C’an Picafort, on the island north coast. The resort has a very chilled out atmosphere, which is perfect for a relaxing beach holiday. Just like many of Mallorca’s resorts, C’an Picafort has grown from a small fishing village into a well-established tourist resort. The beach is just 50m from our hotel and it strikes the right balance between a beautiful blue flag sandy beach lapped by clear warm Mediterranean waters with its equal measures of varied daytime activities and nearby refreshments.
If you choose to take a break from relaxing by the poolside and have a beach day instead, C’an Picafort Beach which is just 50m walk from our hotel is the place to be. It stretches for over 3km and boasts white sand and a long promenade lined with bars and restaurants. There is a range of daily entertainment and organised sports activities that take place on the beach for those of us that are brave enough.
Away from the sun loungers, the surrounding area has a lot to offer. The coastal resort of Alcudia offers a lovely marina with a range of dining options to choose from. Further afield, Palma which is an hour’s drive away is another option where we can enjoy the authentic atmosphere of a vibrant Spanish City. We can enjoy shopping in a wider range of shops and boutiques or visit Palma Cathedral. On the hill overlooking the seafront, its Gothic architecture is accentuated by its beautiful stained glass windows, creating a warm, colourful glow when inside the building.
Our adult’s only hotel is located in the center of Ca’n Picafort, and just 50m away from the beach, offering a calm and pleasant atmosphere in which the quality of service and friendliness is its philosophy.
Facilities on offer include a buffet restaurant, a la carte restaurant, lounge bar, pool bar, outdoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi, Fitness centre, Wellness Centre (additional charges apply) and Free Wi-Fi
Our rooms include A/C, Safe (additional charge), Hairdryer, TV, Phone, Fridge, Minibar (additional charge), Kettle and Balcony or Terrace

You may wish to take an optional excursion during the course of your stay. Full details will be given at the Information Meeting. All tours should be paid for in euros. The exact amount will be given at your Information Meeting. Your Tour Leader will help arrange these for you but may not necessarily accompany you.
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below. Your Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection to cover drivers, porters and hotel staff of €15.00 per week. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate add on.
Casual, cotton, lightweight daytime wear is the order of the day. Comfortable shoes are a must for sightseeing. Smart casual clothes will be ideal for the evening. Early and late season evenings can be cool so do ensure that you take a cardigan or jacket and even some rainwear – particularly in May and June when you may experience some spring thunderstorms followed by scorching days!

I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
Our tour leader Monica was exceptional! Had such a good time and will be rebooking with Solos. Thanks for a great holiday!
Had the best time with Solos! Discovered beautiful destinations and met some lifelong friends.
