I stayed here for a week with my husband and 18 month year old. The wather was generally in the late 20's.2 really hot days and 1 cloudy day.

Accommodation
Our Room was on the 3rd floor and had a pool view.
All rooms on the 3rd floor also have a staircase and an additional locked door to a roof terrace with hottub. We purposefully didnt't choose this type of room as it would not be suitable for my young daughter. The door at the top of the staircase was locked, (as we hadnt paid for this room type) however, the open staircase is still dangerous so my husband spoke to reception and they send some men to the room, they brought in some additional furniture to block the front of teh staircase. Our room overlooked the pool (good view) however it also faced the outside stage (where the evening entertainment is!) so it was really quite loud at night. Luckily my little one sleeps quite well but I'd recommend asking for a room facing the opposite side if your child would not be able to go to sleep in the middle of a disco.

The room was a decent size and fairly modern.

Facilities
The facilities are great, especially for children. Our little one is prob too young to take full advantage but the hotel is geared up for children and there are lots of little touches. A full day and evening events programme, outdoor pools and playgrounds a man in a giant teddy bear costume, colouring books and pens in all the restarants, plastic cutlery etc in all teh restaurants etc.

Food
I must say that I expected pretty bog standard buffet food but was very impressesd. We puposefully only choose to go on a B&B basis as we have found that hotel buffets tend to be fairly average and quite repetitive, however, the food was very decent quality, with plenty of choice. We even had sparkling wine and smolked salmon on the menu today and the freshly cooked pankakes and omlettes were a delight. I must say that food outside the hotel was very dissapointing, we ate dinner out 5 nights and struggled to find anywhere that sold anything except chips and deep fried food abart with friend and griddled meat. The best place we found is Zen on the sea front, a lovely chilled out bar with friendly staff and nice tapas. We also choose to eat at the hotel twice and the food was fantastic compared to anything we had outside.

Staff
The animation/entertainment team were extremely hard working and very polished professionals. They are a credit to the hotel.

Overall - I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone with children. We will definitely consider going back in future years

Have stayed at this hotel three times now and have never been disappointed. Very helpful staff and hotel and pool are very smart. Like the adults only pool too, very peaceful !! Not sure we'll make it again next year though because it seems to be getting more and more expensive each year. Will certainly miss it though !!

Just stayed at the Viva Palmanova for a week and had a really good time. Our room was very clean, modern and spacious with a lovely balcony and with a bed and a table and chairs. We had a ground floor room at the back so not much to look at apart from a car park but we didn't use this much.
The pool area is huge and you can always get a bed, we checked out the 18+ pool which looked very nice and relaxing but we had children with us so wasn't allowed in. Aquagym every day was good fun.
The staff in the bar and restaurant were so kind and helpful.
Breakfast was lovely and so much choice! The kids loved having pancakes and omellettes made to order in front of them.
I wouldn't recommend paying extra for the rooftop rooms with hot tubs, our friends paid an extra 600 euros and although it was lovely to have the hot tub, the room was actually a lot smaller than our normal room in comparison.
Also this hotel is a lot closer to Magaluf than I thought, which is ok if you want to go there, but we struggled to find anywhere nice to go out and eat outside of the hotel. Would recommend eating in the hotel.
Also the spa was divine! We had a few treatments during our stay so would definitely recommend this.
Overall a great place to stay, we will definitely return!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms towards the back are quieter

we stayed with our 5 and 1 yr old for 10 nights all in. food was fantastic with show cooking, omlette eggs and pancakes fresh at breakfast and a selection at evening meals. lunch was ordered at pool bar off a varied menu if you didn't want buffet twice a day.
entertainment staff were amazing with kids and my little boy loved sofia and laura. they loved him back I think too! sadly sofia won't be there next year, sadly missed I'm sure. adult entertainment was ok but not long enough. always ended by 10pm which was annoying as we wanted to stay up on hol a bit later but not leave hotel with kids.
rooms and hotel are spotless, pools spotless and great fun! yes water is cold and can imagine if out of season may be hard to handle but we went 19 to 29 th sep and it was so hot the pools were welcoming to cool us down. our kids were in there everyday and it didnt bother them.
location, to be honest we ate out twice as it was my inlaws birthday and i thought local restaurants were average and hotel food and service outclassed the area. its closer to magaluf than palma nova but we never heard any party animals, its just the streets were not that clean and smell was bad. it is close to beach shops etc. all in all though a great holiday but wish i could put the hotel and all the wonderful staff in a more picturesque setting.
thank you viva.

Love this place. We are a family with two children (6&4) and it is ideal.

The food is amazing and we had our monies worth of all inclusive with the drinks being branded and strong along with the usual local drinks available. Something for everyone every night.

The show team and staff clearly work hard and still had time for anything you wanted.

Quiet rooms considering how full the hotel was (w/c 21st sept) sun beds were readily available.
