Great hotel for Families.
Very kids orientated with lots of activities and clubs. A good, clean, reliable and helpful service throughout the complex.
The only downfall is It's about a 10-15 minute walk to the sea and resort town.

This was our third time back to Viva Mallorca and we felt this time that it was a little disappointing compared to our previous trips to the hotel. The apartments are starting to look a little tired and need some money spending on them. The evening entertainment was very poor and although the holiday reps were very nice we felt that there wasn't enough of them for the amount of activities going on in the hotel. The restaurant was excellent as were the waiters/waitress staff. The adult pool clearly stated over 18's but children and teenagers were constantly in the area. On our last day we noticed a gang of spanish teenagers in the adult area, clearly under the age of 18, They were in the adult area all afternoon/evening, none of the life guards asked them to leave the area. Later when I was in the restaurant having my evening meal I noticed the same gang of spanish teenagers exit the hotel via the car park beside the games room in their swimming gear with towels in hand. We did notice a lot of children falling ill either with ear infections or tummy bugs, and although you can say that is normal for the time of year (August), I am not so sure. We had travelled to this hotel twice before and had never come across so many children being ill. Our daughter had a very bad ear infection and the first trip to the doctor was €90 and the second €70. We thought this very steep, as we would be used to paying a doctor €50 to visit first time with a second visit normally €25. One very alarming thing we noticed was the way in which the staff were using chemicals, clearly marked as hazardous around the pool area in the mornings. Staff never seemed to finish cleaning around the pool until way past 9.30am, They were protection from the hazardous chemicals with wellington boots but guests were walking through areas that had just been brushed down with these chemicals in their bare feet. These areas were never blocked off in any way. Staff then hosed down the area into the drains around the pool. My husband did speak to the manager about the use of the chemicals around the pool. The manager stated that two of the viva hotels were using a new environmentally friendly cleaning process in the pool, of which viva mallorca was one. Maybe it is not working, hence the sickness. The manager did say that he would revert back to us on the use of the chemicals around the pool area and that they were having an audit at the beginning of September. To date he has never reverted back to us to explain anything.

Room Tip: Request an upper floor.

We stayed two years ago and decided to go back on 6th to 13th Sep 2012. We were given a free upgrade to a pool view room on second floor. We arrived late (10.30pm) and girl in reception said we could go the restaurant and have some sandwiches, and a bottle of water was put in our fridge in the apartment. On the second day we had a bottle of wine delivered to our room to welcome us back. Very nice touch.

We have a 1 1/2 year old and a 3 1/2 year old and both loved it. The mini disco was great every night for them; the only thing i would say is they should have some English songs.

I ended up being Buffo one night after coming last in the Archery that day. It was actually great fun.

Food was great and apartment was perfect. Swimming pools are perfect also for little ones.

If you’re heading down town for food try the Monaco restaurant on main pedestrian street. Great value. We went back on two nights and very kid orientated.

Good idea to pay for all inclusive when you arrive as it is cheaper. €50 per person per day and €25 per kid over 2 and under 12. Under 2 goes free.

We stayed here from the 12th to the 26 of August All-inclusive. What I liked was the fact that there was NO mad scramble for sunbeds.In fact you could get a bed at 11am but you would not beside the pool.Food was first Class.Dining was relaxed and never rushed as posted by a fellow reviewer.Staff were very friendly and polite.€50 a day for adult and €25 for kids to go all-inclusive.Less than 10 min straight walk to beach.Slight uphill walk on return but nothing excessive.Majority of guests were German and they have high Standards so thats what you get here.Only negative point was Kids Club was badly staffed with only 2 adults looking after a lot of kids. Having spoken to other guests who were repeat visitors some felt the entertainment was not as good as previous years.All entertainment is finished by 10.30 so don't expect wild nights and noisy guests.So overall,I couldn't fault the place and if you asked me would I go back....the answer would have to be Yes !!!!.

I have just returned from a week in Viva Majorca with my husband and two young children (2&5), it is the best family hotel we have been to. The food was excellent (we stayed allinclusive) the buffet restaurant was theamed so there was some thing different every evening, the drinks were all branded and it was waiter service during the evening show, so you didn't have to leave your seat to get a drink. The children's evening entertainment was on 8-9, and the show for the adults was always family minded and there was usually facing painting or something to keep the children amused.
We upgraded to a privilege apartment, I don't think the rooms were any bigger, but we had our own private garden with a pool view which was nice.
I love this hotel because it is very family orientated, I wouldn't suggest this hotels for couples etc. If you were planning to stay self catering or half board there are a number of shops and resturants just a short walk away, but you should be mindful that this hotel is on the outskirts of the resort and at the top of a hill, so it is a bit of a trek if you wanted to go to the beach.

We have previously stayed in Iberostar's and other Viva hotels, but have to say this is the best! Would definitely go back.

Just come back from a 10 day break to Viva Mallorca in Ca'n Picafort from 6th August.

I have not one fault about this hotel it was perfect, big comfy rooms with air conditioning,( if you are happy to pay a bit extra pick one of the privilage rooms which have a pool side private garden these have a patio area and a grassed area with 2 sunloungers really nice) beautiful pool ( loads of sunbeds and in peak season as well!!) fantastic kids pool with slides, adults pool 18+ with 4 poster double beds, we only used these once because of the kids but it was heaven. Best all inclusive we have been to the food was so tasty and such a lot to choose from, what we liked as well was if you didn't want lunch in the resturant then you could have it at the pool bar and choose from a varied menu full of great food, salads, pasta, pizza, sandwiches etc all freshly made, you could even get takeaways if needed! The drinks available were great, you were given bottles of water not just a cup from a water cooler and proper drinks bottles of coke etc not from a machine, even cocktails were included!!! Ice cream on tap and ice lollies to choose from from freezers a big hit with the kids. All the staff especially reception were so helpful and friendly they couldn't do enough for you. Also found out you can hire buggies which was so handy. About a ten minute walk from the beach, nice town center with lots of shops, bars and resturants if needed, lots of things for the kids on the beach promonade bouncy castles etc. Entertainment was good a different show every night, and activities for kids and adults all through the day and night. Great time had by all.

Room Tip: As advised above a pool view room, ground floor, privilage room was great with its own private garde...

Fantastic hotel, staff very helpful and welcoming, food lovely a good variety (especially for very picky eaters ;)) ), entertainment good, walk downd to beach not too far, we have a child with a physical disabilitiy and she managed it at a slow pace. The weather was lovely and made good use of the pools which were lovely and clean. we had an appartment with a garden and enjoyed relaxing in it. The complex was full, but it didn't seem it as it is well spaced, we didn't have to wait for a table at breakfast and dinner times either. It lives up to its 4 star rating but I would give it more. would go back again.

Room Tip: Appartment 4011 lovely
