This hotel worked perfectly for myself and two children. The pool areas gave them lots of entertainment, and the children's club staff were very welcoming and did a great job of entertaining them with craft activities if you want it. The mini disco at 8pm each evening was very popular with younger kids too. The pools are clean and there were plenty of comfy sunbeds.
The hotel provide pool towels, but these can only be changed every other day. I know this is environmentally friendly....but it does mean that some days you start the day with a wet towel. The indoor pool is really small, so wouldn't be a stand-by for more than about 4 people if the weather wasn't good.
We went all-inclusive, which was good value, and meant the children could help themselves from a freezer of ice-creams, or order a drink, without me having to think all the time about how much we were spending, it was all paid up-front. There was loads of choice at breakfast and evening meals, which they kept interesting by having theme nights...Mexican, tapas,desserts....which were in addition to the choice of fish, meats, pasta etc. At lunchtime we could order a meal from either the pool bar (salads, burger, sandwich, fish) or from the TexMex restaurant, both waiter service.
The beach is only a few minutes walk away, and is a nice long sandy beach, but the area around the hotel isn't interesting at all, just a series of car-hire shops, Spars, and beach accessory shops.
Go to Viva Blue for a family hotel holiday in the sun, but not if you are looking for any experience of Majorca outside of the hotel.

Room Tip: Face away from the pool and towards the nature reserve, particularly if you want peace before the en...

Spent 3 nights there last April with my long term girlfriend for a special 18th present and loved every minute (despite being ill). The hotel is beautiful in every way - the rooms are large and well furnished, with good views, tropical plants grow from many green spaces (even in the Spring) the pools are stunning and it is very close to the beach at Playa de Muro.

Especially enjoyed the 18+ only pool - very peaceful to lie around - on indescribably lovely kingsize wicker-and-matress sunbeds (except that the jacuzzi is noisy) and lovely to swim in. Was a little chilly when we went (due to strong winds), so would probably advise a break between May and September (incidentally, the pictures from the summer look even more beautiful). Was very quiet when we went though, which was nice.

Loved facilities like the sauna and indoor pool (although the jacuzzis and pools were all quite cold). The restaurant looked very nice, though we didn't go to save money - there are several lovely restaurants (and a few terrible ones) in the local area with reasonable prices, good food and excellent service. Likewise the onsite shop was okay, though most items were cheaper bought from the nearby supermarkets in town.

Would definitely recommend for anyone visiting a lovely area of Majorca (within a cheap bus/boat ride from Alcudia and Pollenca).

This place is one of the cleanisest places I've ever stayed in. The pool areas are spotless and well presented. Staff are very friendly and the buffet and bar food are very nice with lots of choice. I went with my other half (both in our eary 20s) and this is a good place to relax as a couple, using the adult pool section which is lovely and peaceful. Lots of toddlers in the early part of September and I mean a lot! If you can put up with lots of kids screaming then your ok but be aware! The training pool is great if your a keen swimmer like myself, at an extra 3.50 euro per hour I thought this was reasonable as it keeps the riff raff out and you can have a very decent swim. Just ask for your ticket from reception and you have to show it to the life guard on duty at the time. We went breakfast only but had dinner in the hotel every night but one. The surrounding area is awful and looks like something out of the 80s (there all a bit behind out there!) and most restaurants look average and menus are standard. We went into Alcudia port a few times but not that much better there either. You can't go wrong with all inclusive at Viva Blue and we so wish we did. The only thing that did niggle me was the charge of 16.50 euro for the safe use, I've never had to pay for a safe before and I have travelled a fair bit in the past. Also, bring your insect repellant, I'm still itching with bites a week after returning, there a bit bitey.

Have fun.

The hotel is clean, spacious and has a variety of pools and recreational areas for kids and adults alike. The olympic pool and the "adult - pool" are great areas for getting away for a small break from the noise that surronds the kids - area.

We lived in a superior de lux - apartement with a terrace with bubble bath and sunbeds, and, although expensive, the cool afternoon wind and privacy was definetly worth the money. The cleaning was also superb!

If you get a room facing the pool - area, like we did, you should be aware that there is a lot of noise from the nightshows - they keep it going until around 10 pm. For 6 nights straight, they were worshipping PSY and Gangam Style like it was the last night on earth (and it alomst felt like that for us).

All in all, it was a great stay (the kids actually like PSY - go figure(!), ant the staff was freindly and helpful.

We really enjoyed our recent stay at Viva Blue & would highly recommend it. The hotel is very clean, the staff are the nicest we have experienced in a hotel & the food was great. We really liked the option of having the buffet restaurant, extensive pool bar menu & tex mex restaurant at lunch time. The buffet restaurant had something for everyone at dinner.
The children loved the hotel & they were well catered for with the pirate ship, mini club, bouncy castle & playground.
The evening entertainment wasn't brilliant but then they never are in our experience of all inclusive hotels so we didn't have high expectations.
Our only criticism is that the walls are very thin & we could hear a lot of noise. Our room was on the ground floor, next to the stair well so that probably didn't help!
Overall, we had a great time & we would return to Viva Blue without hesitation.

This is the last night of our fifth stay at a Viva hotel, three of these being at the Viva Blue. Hotel is spotlessly clean wih staff contstantly cleaning both inside and out throughout the day. We stayed room only, but ate most days in the hotel. The buffet is good with plenty of choice and food freshly cooked. The a la carte restaurant was good value compared to other local restaurants and of a good standard.
The swimming pools must be he cleanest i have seen. The sunbeds are new this year and are very good with plenty to go around. The adult only pool is a great haven, however with kids the chance to appreciate it was limited.
The entertainment team worked hard, although the sports on offer were a bit of a let down compared to other stays due to building of the 25m pool on the multi sports pitch. Roberto and Sara seemed to be the hardest working and friendliest.
Evening entertainment was ok with visiting Viva teams putting on different shows.
The biggest star of the evening was the waiter, Jose. He worked tirelessly, and was by far the most efficient and friendliest of all the waiters. Shame all of the waiters were not as friendly as Jose. This was made more apparent on his day off when the service seemed more like fawlty towers as the waiter was clueless.
We had an issue with the air con on the first day, however this was dealt with very well by the manager.
Overall I cannot fault the hotel or staff. If i had any critisism i would say the rooms, especially the bathrooms are getting ready for a refresh. We will certainly return.

Room Tip: Try for block 1,2 or 3 as block 4 has restricted views.
