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.

So much better than expected!
This was a first for us. We were a party of 6 - myself, my two grown-up sons, one with his partner and his 2 children (2 and 7 yrs) having an adventure abroad!! I wanted a family hotel and that is exactly what we got! We felt like we were treated like family, from the Thompson Rep, Zoe (lovely young lady!) to the Head Chef. I was very apprehensive as my granddaughter, the 2 yr old, has recently been diagnosed as Coeliac and needs a strict gluten free diet. on arrival, the receptionist, Margaleda, was expecting us and told us to speak to the restaurant staff. This we did, and next thing, the Head Chef came to meet us and showed us around. Every single item that was gluten free was clearly marked as a matter of course! He only had to hear we were in and a team member came to ask if she would like bread baked, or GF pasta cooked or would she like a chocolate muffin!!! We all felt quite special! It was simply brilliant to be able to relax completely. Everywhere was spotless, gardeners working continually to keep the areas smart. There are actually 3 pools, one large shaped like a 3 leaf clover, one with the pirate ship and play items then the small toddler pool. Personally, I had a problem with the low-level of the sunbeds (and too be quite honest, they weren't comfortable, but I've been told they never are!) and the chairs are not built for people with big backsides like I have! I wish I had seen the previous reviews before we went and we could have left the towels at home, and the hairdryer! There is even a clothes drying rack on each balcony along with the chairs and table. They seem to have thought of everything! We ventured to the Marina, especially the boys in the evening sometimes. Plenty of bars and shops for souvenirs at reasonable prices. Went on the Amigos Glass Bottom Boat trip. you have a 4 hour trip, stopping at a beautiful beach for just under an hour (there were 3 nudists there, so be warned!) and then later a swim straight from the boat into a sea cave - Magical!! But one recommendation, wear espadrilles as the walk to the beach and back is over rocks, and it hurts! And take a packed lunch/tea as there is nowhere to buy food. Another day we went into Cuitadella, the old capital. Go on the local bus, it's only 1.95 euro each. Thoroughly recommend going in the Cathedral. Stunning, Only 6 euro for the tour and the Convent visit is included. All in all, I would have no hesitation in going again. We were in 2118/2117, Block 2. Far enough to be quiet, but not too far from everything. But then, as it's a family hotel, everything closed up by 11.30 as most had gone to bed by then anyway. I think my only criticisms could be that there should more seating by pirate pool, tables and chairs perhaps, as you need to keep an eye on your youngsters, and then one member of the waiting staff. When Laura was in the poolside bar, she obviously didn't enjoy that aspect as she was seemingly incapable of pouring a cup of beer without it being 2 thirds full of froth! Our children didn't go to the pirate club, preferring to be with new found friends, messing about in the pools! But Monica soon made friends with us all anyway. They also do an aquarobics session which was fun. Come to think of it, I wish I was back there now!More
We have recently returned from a week's holiday at viva menorca. My husband and I travelled with our 4 year old son and 11 month old daughter. The transfer from the airport was only an hour, so that was positive from the outset! The room was lovely, one bed apartment with a kitchenette. The room was on the ground floor and overlooked the pool (block three, room 3017). The cleaning team kept the room and indeed the hotel and grounds spotless. We went all inclusive and we weren't disappointed. The selection of food was brilliant, even our picky (read- only wants to eat fish fingers and chips) , son was able to find things he liked. There are two pools at the hotel. One big pool and one excellent children's pool with water slides. The children's club was great, the kids entertainment team were brilliant. Our son was desperate to be a pirate on the stage (every night at 8pm the children who have attended the kids club the day before get to take part in the show the following night). He went to pirate school for one day, absolutely loved it and wanted to stay there 'forever'! Every employee we came across was without exception polite, friendly and clearly seemed to be happy to work there. There's a good play area for children of I'd say 2 and above. The only suggestion I would have would be to have a little soft play area for the tiny children to crawl about in under some shade. None of us wanted to come home! Think we might end up there next year again! More

Good to be back at the Viva
Stayed for one week from 5 July 2014. We are two adults and a teenager. We have stayed at this hotel several times but have not been there for about 6 years. Pleased to report that it is still excellent. The apartments have one bedroom with two twin beds, patio doors and safe in wardrobe. You have to pay for the safe. We did not find the beds that comfortable but the mattress was changed while we were there which helped. Bathroom with shower in bath and sink in corridor with hair dryer on wall. Shower worked well and nice towels. Lounge with sofa bed, flat screen tv with some English channels, patio doors, furnished balcony, dining table and small kitchen with hob, fridge, toaster, kettle and microwave. Rooms are cleaned 5 times a week. Air con was ok but may not be cool enough if very hot. While the furniture was dated, it is very clean. Grounds, pools and gardens lovely and well maintained. Buildings outdoors could do with a paint. There is a laundry and indoor pool in basement. Bouncy castle and large play frame in outdoor entertainment area which allowed parents to watch show but still keep an eye on the kids. The Free wifi worked well in bar but we could not connect in room. Great activities during the day for children and adults. Lovely pool with lifeguard and pirate ship pool for kids. However the pirate pool, kids club and restaurant are across a service road that coaches use and there is nothing to stop young children running across the road. Cars park too close to zebra crossing. The hotel provides lovely pool towels which you can change three times a week. Entertainment at night has improved a lot and we enjoyed it all; something different every night. Mini disco for kids every night at 8 pm. Great selection of branded drinks and cocktails available from bar and pool bar. Coffee, sandwiches and fruit always available. Lovely walks to lighthouse or harbour. Good selection of restaurants in harbour and also a beach and shops. Several supermarkets within walking distance. Water park within walking distance which is cheaper after 2.30 pm. Bikes for hire from hotel. Service bus runs to cuitadella from just outside the hotel. Food at hotel was excellent with a separate kids buffet. Plenty of choice, often freshly cooked in front of you. Loads of fish and local foods and specialty nights. You could have cava for breakfast and we had caviar one night. We hired a car with Amber Cars as it is about an hour from the airport and nice to have a car to visit beaches etc. Very impressed with the service from them. Very easy going. Easy to drive around the island and plenty of parking at hotel. Manuel the manager always around and very obliging. The girls on reception very friendly and helpful. Staff very caring. If you are looking for a safe, clean place to stay, you will not be disappointed. No lifts so suggest you ask for a ground floor room if you have a buggy or heavy cases.More

Five Star staff and resort!
We recently had the pleasure of staying at the Viva Menorca however we had an unfortunate incident which saw our 15 month old hospitalised after a seizure. Whilst she was luckily fine after a one night stay in the local hospital, the staff were amazing in reacting and ensuring an ambulance and local doctor were on hand as quickly as possible. On our return from the hospital our room had been cleaned to perfection and a cuddly toy had been left in our daughters high chair. Reception, the swimming pool lifeguards and the manager were all pleased to see us on a return and offered us any support we required throughout the rest of our stay. After the incident we were able to get back to normality and enjoy the wide range of facilities Viva Menorca and Cala'n Bosch had on offer. We would definately recommend staying here and the area and look forward to returning in the future.More

Best Family Holiday!!
We have just returned from this FAB hotel, it was amazing, everything about it was just great, really could not fault anything and just want to book to come back next year. We have a 6 and and 8 year who loved it so much, we could not get them to leave the pool each day as the kids entertainment is just brilliant, Mini Club, Teeny Club, small pirate pool and big main pool with LOADS going on all day every day, just the best - the kids entertainment staff really were excellent. The food in the buffet for breakfast/lunch and dinner was really lovely which just such a HUGE variety and changed every night, the pool snack bar was just amazing, everything made to order. All the staff were fab, they work long shifts and always happy to help with a smile on their faces. Rooms very spacious and very clean, maids in every 2nd day and if All Inclusive you get big towels for sunbeds which get changed 3 times a week which is a big help. Only a small walk to Marina, maybe 15 mins, few Supermarkets closeby is self-catering so for us with young kids, position was perfect. If you are thinking of going to Viva Menorce, enjoy - you will love it and not have any faults - the best nd will be back soon!!More
