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.

Great family hotel
Stayed with my mum and 2 year old daughter. Quick check-in with lovely reception staff. There are no lifts which does make climbing to your 1st floor room with 2 cases, 3 bags a pushchair and a 2 year old difficult-although we were offered help. Guests mixture of British, Spanish and German. Mostly families with young kids. ROOM- great! Small kitchen area with everything we needed. Separate bedroom so that when our daughter was asleep we didn't need to tiptoe around her in the room. The kids bed is a pull-out bed under the sofa in the lounge but we just moved this into the bedroom with us. We were in block 4, lovely garden views from balcony. A few ants in the bathroom but not enough to complain about. Entertainment wasn't too loud from our room but most nights we didn't go to bed until it had finished. Good wifi signal in whole of hotel. Never watch TV on holiday but there was a cbeebies channel so great for my daughter while we were getting ready for evening meal. FOOD - we were half board so only breakfast and evening meal. Great choice of food, especially at breakfast! Everything clearly labelled and a lot of choice for vegetarian or gluten free. If you're not all inclusive you can pay 2euros with your evening meal and then have any / as many drinks in the restaurant as you want. Cakes were amazing! POOLS - kids pool great for the little ones! Lots of slides to choose from, pool not too deep. Sunbeds at this pool were definitely better quality and always available (apart from on our last day when it was busy and we got the last 2 there but maybe this was a changeover day and a bit busier?) tiles around pool could get slippery but as long as they're careful and don't run it's fine. A few people complain that you have to cross a road to get to the little pool but it is so quiet I think I only saw 2 cars drive down it the whole week! Maybe if your kids are running around on their own they'll need to be careful but really not an issue at all for younger children as you would be with them at all times anyway. Main pool fairly good size although some sunbeds and umbrellas a bit old and broken but still plenty of space. Games in this pool - aqua aerobics, zorbing, bridges. PLAYAREAS - my daughter loved these! Especially the one by the bar next to the bouncy castle. She played here for hours! It's great as it's right by the bar and entertainment so you can keep an eye on the kids playing and watch entertainment at the same time! LOCAL AREA - quiet in the daytime much busier at night but lovely relaxed atmosphere. This is not a party town at all-great for families. Port is about a 5-10 mins walk from hotel. Great play area called goody goody on the road down to port with pool, water slides, trampolines, bouncy castles, play areas. You have to pay for these but prices very reasonable and great for a little change of scenery from hotel. Supermarket close to hotel (the one slightly further (2 mins) up the road is cheaper than the one on the roundabout and there is much more choice. KIDS CLUB and ENTERTAINMENT TEAM - daughter only went to kids club once for a quiet morning of colouring and making clay models. Kids over 4 can be left alone but they're happy to take younger kids as long as you stay with them. Entertainment team work really hard and are fantastic with the kids. There are adult activities too but they don't hassle you like in some other hotels I've been to. They announce an activity and it's up to you if you want to go. MINI DISCO - is fab!! They have different kids on stage as pirates each night to perform the dances with them and they get a certificate and medal at the end. They also have big soft characters (Bufo and Katty) which the kids love! ENTERTAINMENT - was alright, nothing amazing when we were there apart from the Disney show for the kids. Lots of disney characters-mickey, Minnie and princesses. Fantastic for kids. The only thing is there is the Snow White witch, that terrified a few of the younger ones. My only fault with this hotel, and why I couldn't give it 5 stars, is that if you're not all inclusive the drinks are very expensive! 1 Malibu and coke and a beer 11.70!! Much more expensive than where we live at home! Just a small coke on it's own 2.20! And for 3 ice creams you won't get much change out of 10euros! If you're staying all inclusive then this is no problem-lots of cocktails, food choices! But if your half board/self catering-beware- it could get very costly! Prices outside the hotel though are very reasonable. Overall a great hotel if you have young children. Everything seems to be geared towards the children which was perfect for us. I never visit the same place twice but would come back here again. More
Stayed for a week in September with 3yr old and 4 month old self catering. Had a lovely first holiday as a family of 4 here. Hotel clean although furniture and furnishings including the sun beds at the pools were a bit dated and tatty. Also had an ant problem in the room returning to a baguette bought at 10am to eat at lunch time covered in ants although when reported the cleaning staff fumigated and got rid whilst we were offered free lunch in the pool bar! After that no further issues with ants although tended not to buy any food for the room just in case! Good in pool bar was ok when we ate lunch there. Staff generally helpful although one rather stroppy receptionist told my husband off for not swapping pool towels (available for a deposit of 10e and changeable on Monday weds and fri), at the pirate pool rather than reception (although we didn't know this before then!) Location is about an 8 min walk from the marina at cala n Bosch and about 12 mins to the beach at cala n Bosch although the walk did become a bit dull and a chore by the end if the week I must say! The marina is lovely providing a wide range if restaurants and bars and supermarkets. Cala n Bosch beach lovely with a lifeguard on duty. Sunbeds and a parasol available for 18e a day. There is another beach at San xioriguer round the bay but is quite a walk in the heat! Also is rockier and smaller although more picturesque! There is a bus to ciutedella on the road outside the hotel, and a train (car train thing for sightseeing) runs round the resort. Pool clean and warm and our three year old spent the whole holiday in the main pool although scared of the pirate pool (typical!) in tre afternoon the staff had activities in the pool and our son had a go at zorbing(!!!) and walking across the pool in floating bridge which he loved. Sunbeds were always available at the main pool during our stay. All in all a lovely holiday.More

Travelled 23 Aug 14, 2 adults, a 17 and 15 year old. Sunbeds easy to obtain any time of day, food is excellent and the pool bar cooks to order to an excellent quality and takes about 15 mins tops. Kids joined in all activities such as water polo, volleyball, table tennis etc and the reps were brilliant, had concerns after reviews that our children may get bored as seemed to cater for younger children but this was not the case at all. Marina a 10 min walk away with a range of restaurants, shops and bars, the beach was a 20 min walk and quite small. Bar served branded drinks and made to order cocktails (which we had to try!!) and the service all round was excellent, all staff friendly and welcoming. Only negative would be that the beds are quite hard so bit uncomfortable to sleep on. Would def return.More

great staff. good food. for families with under 5's. very noisy.
Itâs a bit surreal reading the reviews below and I wonder did I go to the same hotel or is the hotel manager writing them? Thatâs not to say we didnât have a nice time, we just didnât have as good a holiday as weâd hoped. We came here 5 years ago when my daughter was 4 and they had just introduced all in and it was a lovely holiday. For us things have declined. We emailed 10months in advance for a quiet room on the top floor as these building echo every noise from above, instead we got the opposite and had to endure what must have been the noisiest most inconsiderate family alive above us for a whole week, I mean, who comes home after midnight with toddlers then plays rearrange the furniture for an hour? You know who you are 2115! We asked to be moved and were told, hotel full canât move until next weekâ¦maybe! I swear I returned home more tired than when I left. Getting a bed by the pool was at times impossible with the usual towels left for hours and hours. I got our beds at 9.30am one day after breakfast and was there almost on my own even though 50% of beds had towels on (not all the hotels fault more selfishness of people these days). The sunbeds themselves by the main pool were ancient and many were broken and often covered in bird droppings. Many umbrellas were also broken, some just completely missing!? In fact all the furniture in or outside was the same or worse than it was 5 years ago. Mattresses were thin and caused back pain and the foyer sofas were crumbling apart. The pirate pool area for the ankle bitters is new however so I guess thatâs where the money has been spent; just get there super early if you want beds. The kids disco was ok but the evening entertainment was by far the worst I have ever experienced in my life and I donât usually care what show is on, but some of them were embarrassingly bad. Not good enough at all for so called 4 star. 5 years ago was much better, we had, Irish dancers, Disney princesses, snake man and others that were of quite good quality. It just proves the hotel wonât pay the money for better acts. on the plus; the food is good, the place is very clean and staff are very friendly and work very hard. We will not be returning to viva and may try Valentin again next year as the kids clubs are very good and the age range of the kids go from young to teens, and the all in beer is san Miguel! Donât go here if your kids are over 5 or if you want any sleep.More

Great hotel, great resort
We stopped at the viva Menorca for 2weeks with out two children (aged 3 & 5). Our check in was fast and friendly and our apartment was situated in block 2. Block 2 was ideal as it was over the road next to the splash Park and in a quieter location. The room was very spacious, clean and well equipped. The maids were very good and kept our apartment immaculately clean for the two weeks. The pools were clean and had a lifeguard in each one. My children loved the splash pool and we spent most out stay there. The food was very good and varied and the choice was vast. The drinks were made fresh and all cocktails were prepared fresh too. I'm not a fan of all inclusive but to be fair this hotel excelled in this area and provided excellent food and children's options throughout the day. The children's club was great and very well ran. My children only went on four occasions but we're made very welcome and we're very well looked after. Both my children took part in the pirate disco and lived every minute of this. I must give a special mention to Monica (entertainment team) who was just so friendly and very attentive towards my two children. She always had a smile on her face and always had time for all the children no mater what time it was. The evening entertainment was very good also with a mini disco starting at 8, followed by a more adult show at 9. The adult shows were however very child friendly. An added bonus was the play area was situated next to the stage area, which meant the children could play under my watchful eye while I watched the show and relaxed with a drink. The hotel is one the best I have stayed in. When I informed reception that my hot water was not working, it was fixed within 30 minutes. I can't fault the hotel, my two children loved it here. Aqua rocks water park is five minutes away and worth a visit. Cala'n bosch harbour is also five minutes away also with lovely bars, restaurants and play areas for the kids. My only complaint are the British holiday makers who for some reason stress, flap and run around at 6am reserving the sun beds. The life guards did there best removing towels however she families would station a family member to stay at the loungers to protect them. Sad indeed! However aside from this the hotel is fantastic, the resort is fantastic and my children had the best time ever. More
