Great Holiday

Everything about this holiday was great. The hotel was spotless, food was lovely and the staff really friendly. The English reps were a waste of time, thanks god for the receptionist! Room was slightly dated but this didn't spoil our holiday in the slightest. Transfer was a nightmare, whoever arranged the routes needs a map! Never had a problem with sunbeds, probably because we went after the kids had gone back. Cocktails of an evening gorgeous. The sea was beautiful but the town itself wasn't much. Would definitely recommend this hotel and would return.More

Still an excellent hotel

Returned for a second time and wasn't disappointed. Everything was excellent on the hotel side and if you are a family thinking of going here I would look no further. Just a few points to add more for information then anything else- Transfer times are 1 hour to the hotel but at least 1.45-2.00 hours on return (longer then listed). Thomson rep in hotel isn't the best but the reception staff have all the information you'll need. Land Train in can picafort is a nice way to see the area. No issues getting sun beds anytime of the day. Ensure you take a drink to have in the airport on your return as the queue is normally long at check in (don't think because you've checked in on line this will make it any quicker because everyone does it and the queue for those who haven't is actually shorter!!)

Beautiful garden hotel.

Just returned from a week at this lovely hotel. The hotel came with wonderful reviews and they are fully justified. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the staff work really hard and maintain the public areas and all the rooms to the highest standard. One or two people have mentioned the rooms are a little "tired" but we never found this, all the furniture and areas in our "junior suite" were very nice. We had a nice sized balcony with basic patio furniture. The pool area is lovely and there were more than adequate sun beds and parasols when we were there. All the facilities around the pool were clean, and everything you could need close by. We loved the garden area too, the staff kept it in beautiful condition, frequently trimming the grass and cleaning the pathways. They had no problem with you putting sunbeds under the shade of the trees if that is what you wanted to do. There are two interlinking pools one 1.5 metres all the way round, and a shallower pool with a toddler pool with a sun canopy over it, also an indoor pool and jaccuzi. We didn't travel with children but you couldn't help seeing how wonderful the facilities for children were. They have their own splash pool with numerous slides coming down from a galleon, and other smaller slides and amusements. There is a separate playground for them too, and in the evening trampolines with harnesses. There was regular evening entertainment - some evenings better than others. Watch out for the 50's 60's 70's 80's night which we loved, also the "Diva" night which was great, the Beatles show was watchable too. Unfortunately the shows start at 9pm and end at 10pm which we thought was too early. They then play music for about 15 minutes before turning it all off and then there is nothing. This is one of the reasons this didn't get a 5 star rating from me. We thought they could at least have played music even if it was moved into the bar area. The bar serves all inclusive till 11.30 and closes at 12. Children are well catered for with entertainment early evening till 9pm. The other reason that it didn't get a 5 star rating from me was that we weren't too impressed by the food at the evening meal. The food was often luke warm and although there was a lot of choice we didn't like a lot of it. This is of course down to personal choice and may not be the view of others. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the main resort of C'an Picafort, there are lots of shops and a lovely beach with lots of bars and restaurants along the promenade, loads of sunbeds and parasols. Two sunbeds and a parasol was 10.5 euros. There is also a regular bus service which stops outside the hotel about every 15 minutes which will take you into the nearby resort of Alcudia. The staff on reception were helpful and had a good command of English. So to summarise we loved this hotel and would recommend it, perfect for families with children but also great for adults, well located and with fantastic facilites. If you are thinking of booking it don't hesitate you won't be disappointed.More

Another great VIVA holiday

We decided to return once again to the hotel chain we have found to be ideal for our family. The management and staff at the Viva Can Picafort are friendly, approachable and helpful. We had a pool facing room on the first floor which was clean and spacious. We opted for half board and therefore found the kitchenette was very useful. The pool area was equally clean surrounded by lovely garden areas. There was never any problem getting sunbeds. The pools are safe for children particularly as far is a shallower pool for younger children and this is where pool games were played with the animation team. There is also a splash pool with a pirate ship for the toddlers. The animation team provide activities throughout the day for all ages. We hardly saw our sons of 9 and 14 who were constantly running off to play water polo, water basket, football and many other activities. The evening entertainment starts with the children's mini disco which the younger children love, especially the hotel mascots BUFO and Katty. This year this was followed with bingo and then the evening show. The food is plentiful, fresh, tasty and varied. We are vegetarian and had absolutely no problem finding an enjoyable meal from the nightly buffets. We have returned to Viva many times because of the excellent service, facilities and overall experience, our children are already asking if we can return in 2015.More

Pleasantly surprised

Arrived home 10th sept after a 2 week stay with my husband & 2 children aged 5 & 2. Agree with alot of people on here about the transfer to the hotel from the airport, what a total nightmare. Took nearly 2 hours although felt like 2 days! We were however given bottles of water & sweets but nevertheless just wanted to get to the hotel after being up since the early hours of the morning. This hotel was probably the best of all hotels that we dropped off at on the way which was good. Check in was fast although they forgot to give us our all-inclusive bands, didn't realise this until we went to order food. Wasn't a problem though and got sorted straight away. We emailed the hotel prior to our stay asking for a pool view. We were in block 5, 2nd floor over looking all the pools which was lovely! We'd also mentioned we'd be spending our anniversary there and had a nice little bottle of Rioja & a small note to say Happy Anniversary & hope you enjoy your stay which we thought was a nice touch. Rooms are clean and spacious. They replace your towels if you leave them in the bath. Beds are very noisy & uncomfortable. Didn't let it spoil our holiday though. They changed our bedding once during our stay. They make the beds everyday except for wednesday & sundays. Food is fab. We loved the pool bar for lunch. Food is cooked fresh from a menu. This is a nice change to having a la carte for 14 days on the trott. Ice lollies, tip tops, ice creams on tap all day everyday. My kids had their monies worth! Few people moaning that the Walls Ice creams weren't in the All Inclusive package but they never are wherever you go. Breakfast nice, not much choice of cereal for children. Saw a lot of people buying cereal in the shop and taking it with them for their kids to eat in the restaurant. My kids lived off chocolate spread on bread!! Evening meals are themed Mexican, cheese night, chocolate night, chinese etc. We stayed for 2 weeks and these got repeated on the 2nd week. Wasn't a problem though. My kids would live off chips basically as did every other child around us. There is food there for kids but what we found was they became incredibly fussy during our stay. A lot of other children were exactly the same so we weren't too bothered. Lots of bribery going on to get kids to eat (dvd players/tablets etc) We tried the Italian restaurant one night for a change. It was ok but nothing special, felt a bit rushed and we were only offered 1 drink each during the meal. Entertainment was good we thought they worked so hard and put a lot of effort in to everything they did. These guys are there when you wake up & are on the go ALL day until last thing at night. We enjoyed but our kids (especially our 2yr old) thoroughly enjoyed it every night! Evenings had lots going on, Owls, portraits, mechanical ride on animals, trampolines, face painting. Drinks are strong, all international and own brands. Waiters/bar staff are extremely busy & non stop all the time from morning til night. No problem at all with reserving sunbeds. The splash pool would fill up much quicker but around the larger pools there was no need at all to reserve any sunbeds. We would put towels down on our way to breakfast around 8.30am. Never had or saw any 40 min cards on sunbeds. Pool towels changed every monday, wednesday & friday. Walked down to the beach front a few times, not really much there. All shops sell the same rubbish. Quite a dirty place we thought. Beach looked very cramped and busy. Each to their own I suppose. Wifi not very good. Not a problem for us but a lot of people found this to be a big deal. We would without a doubt go back to the hotel if a deal came up. It has everything you could wish for on a holiday. Next time however I would book a taxi to & from the airport as the transfers are horrendous. The pick up was a stupid set up. We got picked up at 7am and we travelled up & down all the streets of ca'n picafort collecting people until 7.45am. Driving past our hotel about 5 times. Finally reaching the airport around 8.30am! There are a few minor things the hotel could change to make this spot on but they are trivial and not worth mentioning as it would be nit picking. Would recommend to anyone with small children. Wouldn't stay there if we didn't have kids, As this hotel is based around the little ones which is why we had an amazing time.More
