good but very child oriented
There is not much fault to this hotel, it is immaculate and the staff are so lovely, especially the bar staff. But, the poolside is VERY loud and is dominated by children, there is an 18+ but it is right next to the main pool. The entertainment finishes at 11 and until 8 (or 8.30 not too sure) is a child's disco so i really do think you either need children to come here or do not go all inclusive so you can go out in the night. Food is amazing More
Beautiful apartment but sadly end of season
We had a privilege apartment with a garden but unfortunately couldn't use the garden because we were put in an area of the hotel that had very little sun so bear this in mind if you're booking a garden. We couldn't use the garden because at the time of year we went it was wet with dew and this never got burned off worth the heat or sun. The apartment itself was beautiful, very big and spotless. Bathroom with amazing shower and bath. Perfectly good kitchen, we cooked spaghetti Bolognese and quesadillas without difficulty. There are some good pizza places down the road, about 10-15 min walk. This hotel is not on the beach, it's a good 10-15 min walk and to be honest the beach is a bit rough, or it was when we went in October. Full of seaweed. We got the local bus to alcudia beach which was much nicer. This only cost about 7 euros for 2 adults and 2 children although this changed with each bus driver. The swimming pool and children's pool area was far too cold for the children in october, even on sunny hot days and my 2 are pretty hardy. They loved the indoor pool though. Staff very friendly. Ate in the pool bar once, not impressed with cold teriyaki chicken and got the impression that non all inclusive guests were a pain in the bum. Also the on-site shop was empty!!! I know we went in the last week but they should still cater for those of us self catering. Having said a few moans I really have to say this hotel was lovely, very clean and the apartment was one of the best I've stayed in. Highly recommendedMore
Fantastic family hotel
Fantastic. Would not think twice about coming back here or to a viva hotel. Have stayed in 2 in this area now and both have been fabulous. This time we travelled with our friends and their little girl. We booked a ground floor room with a garden (priveledge plus I think) as our kids are a little older now (5 and 8)and were not likely to just wander off. With that you pay a little more for the garden which has easy access to the pools and has a couple of loungers, a parasol and a hammock. It was lovely having this but to be honest we didn't really use it. That said it would be great if your kids need a lunchtime nap or you were taking them back to room at 4 or 5pm every night as 1 of you would still be able to get some sun worship in. Rooms were great, very clean, 2 generous wardrobes with enough hangers (for a change) a safe but with a local charge, kitchenette which had everything you'd need if you were self catering. There were 3 pools, 2 of which are 1 metre deep and the other 1.7 metres deep then there's the fabulous toddler area with the ship slides, big bucket etc and this is great. Depth of 1metre is great as my 5 year old can swim but he was able to hop everywhere as he could just stay above the waterline! The pools are massive and are very busy most of the day with squirty guns annd dingies all of which the lifegaurds are cool with. Activities usually include kids waterpolo, adults water volleyball, aqua aerobics etc. There's also loads of other stuff for kids and adults footy every day for both, archery, shooting,spinning etc and the kids club is great too. Our 2 don't normally like the kids clubs but they did a bit more during this holiday. The pool areas do get busy really early and as there can be a fair German contingent be prepared to get your towels out early as it can get silly. Some mornings saw no loungers unbooked by 7.30am! The staff do their best with leaflets left on your lounger and if within 45 minutes you haven't returned they remove your towel but that only seemed to start at 8am ish! Luckily we were next to the pools so a morning was a bit like the old Carling advert!!! Me or my mate ensured we were sorted, although I hate having to do that. Food was good. there are two main eateries. The main restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and the snack area that does meals and snacks during day (being all inclusive saved us a fortune here!) and turns into a grill for the evening but be warned BOOK THIS IN ADVANCE! You are told on arrival how busy it gets and that pre-booking is essential. We left it too late however and when our friends tried to book in after 3 days they were full. This was such a shame as it smelled and looked fab. The main restaurant can be used by those not all inclusive (if you pay) but if they are busy then the routine seems to be they will always seat those on all inclusive first. Food is good. It's self service and is constantly changed if its been there too long or topped up if its proving popular. Lots of choice although most nights are themed and the dishes seem to be linked to that. Normally the usual kids stuff although on some of the nights there didn't seem to be much for them to eat! They were loving breakfast though with most mornings offering choros and waffles as well as nutella! On our last night we decided to go out and found a lovely steakhouse on the top of the main drag just down fro the hotel la villenue or something similar it was called. Me and my mate were gagging fora big steak and this place didn't disappoint, girls and kids ordered what they wanted (pasta and pizza) and I think the bill was something like 150euros for the 7 of us including wine and beer. The main road down to the beach is busy of a night and is a mixture of tat shops and bars and eateries with there being more of the same on the road that runs just behind the beach front although some of the shops here stock better quality stuff. Can'picafort beach is lovely and there are watersports available, we just didn't bother as our kids were happy being in the hotel pool all day! There is a local truck / train type thing that runs a route round can picafort. This is great for the kids and / or a lift back if you've walked down to the front for a walk or lunch / dinner. On a night the entertainment is ok although the area does get very busy. That said if its really busy the outside of the restaurant or cocktail bars are available to use and both offer good views of the stage.Staff are all fantastic. Polite, courteous and always a smile and o'la or hello. The reason I say this is that they are out everyday titivating the hotel, cutting lawns etc and just ensuring its lovely. Example my little boy ran the case carrier into a plant pot and broke it (sorry about that viva!) within 10 mins it was replaced as if it never happened! The resort of Can'pacafort itself isn't enormous but to be honest with a hotel as good as this you don't need it to be, you can lock yourself away in the hotel! Also forgot to mention there is a water park 10 mins down the road, a golf course nearby and the port of Soller is a one hours drive away and offers stunning views from the mountain roads. We went in August (bank holiday) and it was between 28-34 degrees every day with one day of cloud. Simply fantastic family holiday and would never ever think twice about booking a viva hotel again.More

Amazing for families with young children
The resort is beautiful, great rooms, fantastic facilities & restaurant, evening entertainment is great for children & adults. Lots going on, plenty of room for everyone. About a 10 minute walk into town / beachfront. Not the most beautiful resort but nice to get out of the resort and have a mooch about.More
Great for families
Stayed 11 nights in September. Staff all very friendly. Place overall very clean. Food was plentiful and off good quality. Fantastic children amenities and separate adults pool to lounge. Location is around 20 minute walk to the beach with children. Adult entertainment not really much there or great to be honest. Otherwise good holiday but would go to another hotel next time closer to the beach.More
