“Fab Hotel”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Stayed at Viva from 4th to the 9th April for our engagement holiday. Got a deal for 235 for double room on booking.com. On arrival the hotel looked fabulous and the nice ladies checked us in but as soon as we saw our room 1103 we were disappointed as it over looked the car park with adjacent balconies in a state of disrepair, there was also some loud building works going on. We walked straight out and asked to be moved at reception to one that faced inwards towards the communial pool areas. Both ladies looked a bit stumped! However they offered to move us to a room overlooking the street, but as we went and got our bags my fiancee went back and mentioned the word "upgrade"! Straight away something was made available but it was the most expensive upgrade at 35 euro's more per night. We went for it as we really wanted it to be special and it was soo worth it ! We loved the privacy of the roof terrace with jacuzzi, it made our holiday! The actual apartment was great with a balcony, a lounge, kitchenette and bedroom. It was spotless and really lovely, the room was cleaned and sheets and towels could be changed each day apart from Sunday and Wednesday. The maids even displayed my nightie on the bed which I thought was a nice touch. Noise wasnt a problem aside children running up and down the corridor at points but this wasn't the hotels fault. The entertainment and food wasn't our scene but we Had a laugh on the evening we went down for it. The whole complex was beautifully clean and the pools looked great although too cold for us to swim in April. The whole of our stay we felt secure and comfortable there and enjoyed our roof terrace in the daytime for sunbathing and in the nights for a bottle of cava or two in the jacuzzi! Overall a very good hotel although I didnt like Palma Nova's lack of Spanish culture much, I would definately recommend the viva but you must get a pool view preferably with the roof terrace.

Viva Palmanova is a lovely hotel. We upgraded to the top floor apartments with a hot tub and private terrace - it's well worth the extra supplement and you can totally relax and you really feel like you are on holiday! My children loved the facilities and made lots of really nice friends. The food in the restaurant was fresh, well presented and there was lots to choose from! The indoor pool was a bonus as it was a little too cold in the outside pools! The park is fab for younger children, including a bouncy castle! We will definately return!

Room Tip: It's got to be a roof top apartment! We stayed in 4303.

Stayed here late March 2013... 2 adults & 2 kids (14 & 11), excellent facilities & apartments were very comfortable.Friendly staff. Lovely pool area even though pools were still too cold for a dip but great to have the indoor pool & jacuzi which closes for high season. Seperate kids pool & playground area & fun activities to keep the youth occupied...( pool table, table tennis, pistol shooting to mention a few) There is a lovely adults only relaxation area. Ample onsite supermarket for necessities. 5 minutes walk to the beach & shopping area & restaurants. 20 minute taxi ride from the airport at a cost of E38. would stay here again.

I cannot imagine any family with young children not enjoying this hotel, the staff are helpful and more than friendly, the restaurant has a good choice and very good food. Outside, there is more than enough to keep kids entertained with play areas both in and out of the pools. Car rental is good value here for touring the beautiful island, you can also hire road bikes on their website which will be delivered and stored in this hotel.

Just returned from a week in this hotel, the hotel room was very spacious and very well equipped with all you would need for your stay, and very clean inside and out and the staff were very friendly indeed. the grounds are very well maintained and the indoor pool and jacuzzi were ideal as although the weather was nice it wasn,t particularly warm, only downside was most of the bars and restaurants seemed to have closed down for the winter, but this hotel is very well situated, walk down the steps in front of the hotel and the beach is about 50 metres in front of you and there are plenty of shops and bars nearby, overall a very relaxing and enjoyable break.

Room Tip: Our room was on the 3rd floor, but did not get the sun until late afternoon.
