Viva Menorca

This place has 3 swimming pools and the marina is just a short stroll away.

Life at Viva Menorca revolves around the 3 swimming pools. There’s an international buffet restaurant, too, and sports like football and archery to get stuck into during the day.

Cala’n Bosch’s pretty marina is a 10-minute walk away, and it’s only a couple of minutes more to the wide, sandy beach.

End of season

When we booked we booked a completely different hotel but a week before we were due to go we were told this hotel would be closed so we agreed to go to the viva Minorca. Its only a short flight from Leeds Bradford airport. On arrival in Minorca we got through customs and immigration quickly which is a change . On arrival at the hotel we booked in had to carry our luggage ourselves to our apartments this may not seem like much until you realise our apartments were up flights of stairs . The rooms are clean a good bed with a fridge and tea making facilities . The food is help yourself loads to choose from at first but as the week went on the choice became some what limited . The pools are really good I cant swim so do not go in deep water but the pools are only 4ft 6 deep so I could spend loads of time in the pool. There is also a child's pool which shallow they have life guards on duty at all times. The nightly entertainment is good different every night there is a child's play area I would say you need to supervise your child at all times some of the slides are high there is also a foot ball enclosure and loads of other activities . The staff are polite and helpful things to do the hotel is 8 minets from the harbour a further were there are shops and places to eat the beach is lovely safe shallow for a long way out a 10 minet walk you can catch a local bus for a few Euros to the nearest local town. Over all I enjoyed my week in Minorca hope to back next JuneMore

noisy rooms

Me & my partner stayed here at the end of sept on self catering basis.its a great all inclusive family orientated hotel but found it didnt suit us. rooms basic and noisy and cleaning not up to standard. shampoo/shower gel in bathroom plenty of hot water. Beds rock hard, did report to reception who then had a blanket put over the matress, didnt help much so had a bad back for duration of the holiday Also had ants in the room. pool towels available which you could change 3 times a week. Pool area and bar good and because it was quiet in the hotel no problem with getting a sunbed. Adult entertainment finished by 10.30pm but was spoilt by the bouncy castle and play area near to the stage. Found drink prices expensive. Ate out every night ain some excellent restaurants in the marina so cannot comment on the hotel foodMore

really good holiday for young kids

We went with a 5 yr andn18 m old. The staff were really great and helpful. The only exception was the receptionists who were a bit grumpy. The kid club was amazing and my 5 yr old could not get enough. The food was exceptionally good. I was very impressed by the quality and variability of the menu. Also our son has a nut allergy and they were very careful and had good labelling. The bedrooms were not well designed, as the sofa bed was two single beds and not ideal for parents. Our kids were in the bedroom so they could sleep while we watched tv, which had a nice comfy bed. So a better sofa would have helped. Also the evening show was so loud that it was not easy to get to sleep until it ended. It was very noisy and went on quite late. But overall we had a great time and the hotel was really nice. Would recommend it if you want a poolside holiday with kids.More

Fine for a family holiday, but not amazing.

Firstly, we were sold this on a self catering basis. It is really an all inclusive resort. That is not a critism of the resort, but it is not really geared up for full on self catering. We were misold on this in my opinion, nearly everyone else was on an all inclusive deal. We stayed in late September, a much quieter time to visit Menorca. This is definately a family resort and good for those with small children. The resort itself is ok, generally clean, tidy and well kept. There are two pools, one specifically for little kids. A small one way road disects the resort and has to be crossed to access the childrens pool and restaurant or vice versa for the main pool/reception if you are accomodated on the restaurant side. It is not a busy road by any means and is not a main thoroughfare to anywhere, but a road is a road and you have to watch the kids closely when crossing (it is gated). I think the resort would be nicer if the road wasn't there. The resort is geared up for small kids, with play areas and swings, a kids club, evening entertainment and the purpose built shallow kids pool (neither pools are heated as far as I could tell). The accomodation is in blocks. The rooms have a living area, a small kitchenette (small microwave combination oven, small fridge with tiny freezer compartment, two electric hot plates and a sink. The crockery and utensils are adequate, but probably doesn't have everything you would like. The bowls are more like slightly deep plates!), a bathroom and bedroom, with a separate sink area adjoining the bathroom and bedroom. The accomodation is ok without being anything special, but it is clean. Some of the furniture is a bit tired and the electrics, although safe, were a bit random in terms of which switch turned which light on! One of our patio door windows had clearly been broken at some stage and the replacement glass was a bit of a bodge job and the glass rattled in the frame. Again it was safe, but just not brilliant. I don't expect you will spend much time in the accomodation, so from that point of view it is fine. We had a ground floor room, because we didn't want a balcony with a small child in tow. The room was near the kids pool, but was quiet enough. It is a bit dark in the rooms, but I guess in the hot summer it remains cooler. It is fully air conditioned. TV picks up BBC 2, BBC 4 and BBC World News (bit random), but probably not very important to most people. WIFI is free. We didn't eat in the restaurant, so no idea what the food is like. The staff were friendly enough, but I wouldn't rave about how amazing they were, like some people have. You can park a car for free either in the small car park or on the road I have already mentioned. I expect in the peak season the hotel is very crowded and busy, so parking may be more difficult. The small harbour and beach are a ten to fifteen minute walk away and there are loads of restaurants and bars in the harbour. Beach is small, but fine, sea is very clear and was warm in September. We had a car so we went to some other beaches at Cala Turqueta, Cala Macarella and Cala Galdana. Cala Galdana is the easiest to access and best if you have small kids, infact it is probably a good place to stay too. In summary, this hotel is aimed at families with small children, but it is not properly set up for self catering and is middle of the road in terms of accomodation quality. We had a pleasant enough holiday, but this place didn't perfectly match our needs, so I would try somewhere else if we were to return to Menorca in future.More

Viva Menorca - If you have children this is one of the best resorts for a great holiday

We went to this resort on a friends recommendation , we flew in from London City on BA , 2 hours 15 minute flight which was good with a three year old . When we arrived we had planned to get a bus recommended by the hotel, it was fine but a delayed flight meant we hang around the airport for 45 minutes , we got a taxi on the return from the resort which was Euro 68.00 from the hotel , they quoted us that amount. The resort is very good , our room had a double bedroom me and my wife were in there, and our three year old, slept on the big sofa bed in the living room. The rooms are air conditioned , and you need it in August/ September , and are plain but super clean with a high standard of fittings and bathrooms etc. We had a nice patio (small) but Ok with a tiny view of the sea in Block 4 , second floor. One key issue the doors don't lock on the apartments from the inside and with an active and curious three year old, they can walk out by themselves, lots of other parents we spoke to highlighted this as a concern. The resort say this is a health and safety issue, however its a concern, we had to block the doors with the chairs. One other thing that I would highlight is that you have to rent safes , which I find annoying, its Euro 30.00 , and they are so small that you can't place much more than a passport , and wallet in them We were all inclusive, and the standard of food and drinks was very high, with great choice of meals , salads , soft drinks , and cocktails, and beers, ice creams (generic ) are free , and some drinks such as branded gin (Hendricks ) is chargeable but very cheap. The wine would be my only reservation , its all Spanish and is very dry, and frankly not very nice. The service is very good , and the staff super friendly with a great attitude towards children. The resort is super clean , its cleaned and maintained with an almost fanatical dedication to detail, everything is cleaned within an inch of its life. There are two pools one main one and the pirate ship pool for toddlers which is great , they are clean , well supervised and have great services by the poolside bar. They all have loads of sun beds which there is some competition for and you have to be early for . The play area by the main bar is great , however it has a wooden fence with a gap at the end that you cannot observe from the seating area by the bar / entertainment area, I found my son and his holiday buddies outside the fence , and had to bring them back in. This leads directly to the road, and as the entertainment is at night, so was in my opinion a risk that could be addressed by building a full fence. There is also a gate there that remains unlocked and is at sufficient height children can and do open it , unsupervised. The main entertainment at night is lots of acts , magicians, singers, acrobats etc , they are slightly Bustling like , but OK , the children pirate show (singing , dancing, kids on stage, etc ) are all pretty good, and my son still sings all the songs months later . You are within ten minutes of the harbour which is pretty , has loads of restaurants and boats, and is very nice. Its also within easy taxi distance and local buses to the Citadel, (main town) , and Cala Blanca which is a small town with a lovely tiny beach. We had a great time there, nothing is a hassle , WiFI is free and open access, and towels, and bed linen is changed regularly. I recommend this for anyone with children, I would not recommend it for anyone without children.More
