“Good family hotel”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Light large airy rooms with good facilities. Great for families. Only small amounts of English guests in the hotel, however, staff have good communication skills and guests (Northern Europeans majority) are friendly. Slightly quieter than neighbouring hotel. Lovely adult pool and sunbed area. Beach in front of the hotel is outstanding for families. :)

Room Tip: Choose higher room facing over pool with good partial sea view. Less noise from pool :)

Stayed here for five nights with my husband and two young kids (pre-school and baby). Can't fault the hotel... lovely apartments, fantastic pools, good amenities and exceptionally helpful staff. We went for one of the rooftop pools with Jacuzzi and despite the changeable weather still got a chance to make good use of this... as the kids could play safely and still enjoy the pool and lunch have lunch on the roof. The pirate pool was brilliant for pre-schooler and the beach and itself and views from hotel are lovely. Also the shower in the apartments were fantastic which is not (from our experience) common!

My only negative about this place - and it really it is not a fault of the hotel or Playa de Muro resort per say - but it really was exceptionally quiet at the beginning of April. No restaurants within walking distance other than the hotel (and other hotels nearby) and very little open within the hotel itself (e.g. one bar/ snack area only). We took buses (very cheap but very infrequent times) and taxis back and forward to the next resorts of Alcudia and C'an Picafort (itself mostly closed for the winter). We were told everything is open 1st May to 31st August.

If you want a quiet holiday just relaxing and cooking for yourself then this is a good option.

Room Tip: Definitely pay the extra for a rooftop suite facing the pool - worth every penny! Also, consider pa...

This is a very nice hotel for families and includes a great all-inclusive services. It is one of the best hotels at Mallorca and I have to say, that only the Iberostar Albufera Playa is better at Playa de Muro.

I've been to many Mallorca's hotels, many locations, but maybe 7 times at Playa de Muro. This beach is just AMAZING!

The beach is like a Carribean beach and the resorts at Playa de Muro are similar to resorts in Cancun or elsewhere in Carribean. True is, that there is less colors, but the sea is very clean and nice. The sand is almost white, you will definitely enjoy the stay there.

If you are looking for a great familly vacation, you have to go there. If you are a couple and want to party, do not go there :).

Room Tip: This is hard to say, but stay more close to the sea. The rooms facing the pool and closer to the sea...

We loved the hotel, the food and the staff.
Unfortunately the location is not perfect so a taxi ride or a bus to the city is required.
Otherwise we really enjoyed our stay at Viva Bahia.
The restaurant had any type of food one could prefer, salads, chicken, veal, pork, sea food, you name it.
We also appreciated the pool bar with all the drinks, free ice-cream (we had all-inclusive) and all different snacks (burgers, pizzas etc.).

This was our second time holidaying at a Viva Hotel (we stayed at Viva Mallorca two years ago). Once again, we cannot really fault anything about the hotel or service.

Hotel: This Viva hotel is in a better location than Viva Mallorca (right on the beach), but space is obviously at a premium so the hotel isn't as spacious and as well set out. This means both the pool and entertainment area is more cramped. However, the kids pool is far superior.

The bedrooms are okay, although the sofa bed could be better.We were booked all inclusive and the food choice is excellent.

The whole premises are absolutely spotless in terms of cleanliness.

Service: Once again the kids entertainers are fantastic and work tirelessly all day and all night, providing the hotel with great energy.

The reception provided a fantastic service and were very accommodating and helpful when we discovered our travel agent had book the wrong nights. They found a solution, with the manager, Toni Cortes, being particularly helpful.

Conclusion: If you're looking for a hotel that is perfect for a young family, with great facilities and entertainment, then you can do alot worse than holiday at Viva Bahia. We shall undoubtedly be returning.

Booked 2 week stay using Ving.no. Seemed that prices were much better if you upgraded room / food at the hotel. We booked a sea view room with half board. Great view, plenty of space. Ok furnishings. Clean enough but could be cleaned more thoroughly. Reception staff good but often overworked, meaning queues. Car rental through reception is excellent. Waiting/ restaurant/ bar staff generally rude or unhappy. Some good ones though. Entertainment staff very outgoing and energized all day every day, very impressive. Policy of selected days for changing beach towels was annoying, as was room cleaning only 5 days pw. Not enough sun loungers, sometimes sharing one between 3. To add insult they have cards that guests can put on the beds to take them if not used for 40 mins. When 3 are sharing one sunbed and someone puts that on the chair you wonder if you are in the correct standard hotel for 60,000 norwegian kroner for 2 weeks!! Food was more quantity than quality but great for kids. Think the booking agents overrate the standard and the pricing. It is definitely nothing more than 4*.
Location was very good with beach nearby. Pools were good but overcrowded, with kids pool cold until heated by sun in afternoon. Area outside hotel quite tacky. Palma was much nicer. Would recommend to go all inclusive as we ended eating inhouse whole time. Were told by a Swedish couple you can upgrade while there. Would have been nice if hotel mentioned that when they see the bills piling up ;) weather was fantastic, which was most important to us. Generally a good stay and no real problems but for the price booking agents charge you could feel you paid too much. Wouln't pay that again for same.

Stayed for 8 night recently at the Viva Bahia with two daughters aged 11 and 13 and overall had a good holiday. One of the big positives was that there were a good mix of nationalities without too many Brits and considering the amount of children around things weren't tooo manic!
Room/apartment was large and clean with good size bathroom with walk-in shower. Maybe a little dated but then again didn't spend too much time in room.
Staff overall pretty friendly and helpful though evening terrace/bar service was absolutely dreadful. Can't recal the number of nights we left without drinks arriving after anything between 15 and 40 minutes, despite numerous reminders.
Mix of All inclusive (as we were) and not made things a bit strange though all in all food was pretty decent with one or two exceptional highlights even (fresh grilled whole baby squid on seafood night were amazing)!
A few niggles such as poorly maintained gym and dire wifi but overall, location, chilled atmosphere, beach etc made for a good holiday. Paid 30% less last year for similar proposition in Ibiza and was absoluteley dire so the bit extra this year was well worth it for 3 happy relaxed people that made the short flight home (another massive bonus).

Room Tip: Room 1003 was a ground floor corner one at beach end of the pools, quite close to kiddies pool but n...
