Good all round family hotel....but
Stayed here in July, 2 adults 1 child 1 toddler. Childrens splash pool was brilliant, only problem was trying to get sunbeds as they were all reserved at the crack of dawn! The food was ok, usual buffet selection.Loved the bucks fizz at breakfast - nice touch!. Good sangria served by glass or jug and cava was nice too. Kids enjoyed mini disco, adult entertainment was tribute acts, comedians, bingo ect. Although we did enjoy the holiday, I do have to mention that all four members of our family spent a day each vomiting! whether there was a bug going round at the time or something to do with the food who knows. Some friends of ours stayed here in September and they were taken ill also! More

Great family holiday
Stayed here with our 18 month old. Had everything you could want when going with children, splash pool was great (even though it was cold). Staff and entertainment team nice and helpful. Food was great and that's saying something as me and my partner are fussy eaters. Only real negative I would say is evening meal time is too late when you got a 18 month old or young child , restaurant doesn't open till 7 which is too late for her. Luckily we brought some kiddies meal trays with us to be on safe side and the staff were happy enough to heat them up for us, I just would of thought being a family resort there would be some sort of food available for younger kids.

Great family holiday!
We traveled as a group of four adults, a 3.5 year old and a 15 month old. Transfer from the airport was quite long but worth it! The reception is really nice! Clean and looks very new, staff are very friendly and got us checked in straight away. We did request a room with a garden not a balcony as we were worried about the children on a balcony. Unfortunately there were no rooms available which we initially were annoyed with! But upon seeing our room which was on the first floor we didn't need to worry! Huge balcony which you could get to from the bedroom and lounge and it was very safe for the children! Rooms were nice! they have a separate bedroom, sink area and then bathroom with a shower, bath and toilet. There was also a little table and kitchen area in the lounge. The sofa had a pull out bed which was fine for our 3 year old. The travel cot provided by the hotel was perfect which we had in the main bedroom. The pool areas are lovely. They were pretty busy though and we did struggle to get any sun beds but found the odd one which we coped with. The childrens splash park is excellent for the families. Especially as its covered over so even when its really sunny the children can carry on playing. The other pools were also great, activities seemed to happen quite a bit and lots of people joined in. The restaurant was good. The choice of food was good. However for the children we struggled. It seemed to be pasta, chips and veg. Lots of pork on the menu! There was always lots of fresh pasta, meats, fish etc all being cooked up so we definitely didnt go hungry. The drinks and icecreams were also great through the day at the pool bar. The grounds are all kept very nice and clean, there always seemed to be maids about cleaning. The evening show for the children seemed ok. Not the best that we have been to but the children enjoyed it. Unlike other hotels we have stayed at, alot of the songs seemed to be in German. We didnt stay for the shows, however lots of people did so they must have been good. All the entertainment was finished by 10:30/11 i think so no problem with noise. There was a childrens club house, but ours 3 year old didn't want to go in there. The entertainment staff worked really hard throughout the day with the children and adults on activities. So good work there definitely! The beach is a short walk (10/15 mins) from the hotel. Some of the roads are nicer to walk through than others so took us a while to find a pleasant route. The beach was lovely and clean. Not much shade unless you wanted to hire a sun lounger and umbrella. The sea was also lovely, warm and clear. We mainly used the pool though as it had everything we needed there. We walked to the beach in the evenings for something to do and there are plenty of bars and restaurants if you want a different option from the hotel. We took a bus to pollensa (i think) to the big market one day! It was ok! It was hot so not ideal and very samey. The queues for the bus home was horrendous, we wish we hadn't bothered really. All in all an excellent hotel for all ages, great hotel, great rooms and I would definitely recommend it to anyone!More

Pleasant holiday but with mixed reviews
We travelled in May 2012 as a family and we were really looking forward to staying at this hotel. We arrived in the early hours of the morning and check-in was smooth and we were given a resort map upon arrival; our room was situated to the back of the hotel which also happened to be the 'quiet' area of the hotel. At the time of our stay, this hotel was known as the 'Holiday Village Viva' and it was First Choice's flagship hotel. It was certainly set up as a Holiday Village, with a main lagoon-style pool surrounded by about a dozen accommodation blocks. The hotel grounds consists of gardens with orange and lemon trees, which provided a pleasant mid-afternoon walk in the sun. The pools were a brilliant set-up although the lack of sunbeds provided to be a challenge later on in our holiday. As usual with all-inclusive hotels, free drinks, ice-creams and slushes were provided free of charge. We had a lot of fun on the Aerial Adventure. The entertainment was, let's be honest, dreadful, and closely resembled a 90s' Butlins low-budget hotel and was almost completely First Choice operated -we would've preferred some local tribute bands or an authentic act. We were disappointed. The staff were nothing special although working in a busy hotel made them busy almost all the time. However, they didn't interact with the guests very well unlike the previous hotel we'd visited. The cleaners were hard-working although they didn't clean the rooms everyday, unlike the three-star hotel we'd visited that were cleaned every day. The restaurant was okay. Nothing more than that. It was the classic buffet although it constantly suffered from the number of guests at the hotel which often caused queueing problems, seating arrangements etc. The variety was quite large although there was a considerable lack of traditional Balearic/Mediterranean cuisine, and not everyone goes on holiday to eat chips and pizza although the selection of salads and meats were quite good. Later on in our holiday the main bulk of overweight and lazy Brits arrived, and let's say their table manners and hygiene were appalling. The Tex-Mex a la carte restaurant on site required booking but it was totally worth it; brilliant staff and the food was next to outstanding. We didn't visit the Italian restaurant as it didn't look up to much, although the reviews it got were generally positive. The hotel is located on the outskirts of Ca'n Picafort, and large Mallorcan beach resort that numbered roughly 5000 inhabitants. We were disappointed to find that there was a lack of rural walks in the surrounding area; walking along the promenade every night was enjoyable although it became increasingly repetitive. The resort itself was too large and busy for us, with a nice but overcrowded beach overlooking the Bay of Alcudia. It's in close proximity with the nearby city of Alcudia, although the old town is the only attractive part. A picnic was provided (although not very nice) for if you wanted to go for a day out in Mallorca. The rooms at the hotel were outstanding to say the least, for a family of four the double room provided plenty of space. The bathroom was immaculate and the shower was probably the best we'd ever used and the flatscreen TV and kitchenette was an added bonus in the lounge. All in all, we enjoyed our holiday but because of the laziness and bad-manners of the British guests and the lack of location and walks we would not returning.More

Great for young kids :)
We chose this hotel for August 2014 due to the large amount of child orientated activities and pools. The complex more than delivered on all fronts when it came to our two daughters (5 & 2) food was great the whole week, the restaurant serves breakfast lunch and dinner while pool bar serves drinks, excellent Cappuccino, lollies and lunch all day until tea time when it turns into an Italian restaurant which u must book. We didnt bother as restaurant more than met our needs. They had a varied buffet style menu and good quality food for all. Kids plates and cutlery etc and always mashed potatoes, chips, pizza etc if the kids didnt fancy the evening themes. Pools were great, kids pool perfect for toddlers and younger children. Kids club is run by hotel (viva) and I would strongly recommend keeping a very close eye on your kids if u leave them at it for an hour or two. A little girl was temporarily lost while we were there as she had just wandered off and no one really noticed until her mum came to collect her and she wasn't there. Thankfully she was in the German club room just next to the viva kids club. I would say they need to monitor their numbers a lot more closely. It seems to be more of a pop in, pop out whenever u like sort of set up. As our child was 5 at the time, we stayed very close by while she was doing activities. They do fruit kebab making, tshirt painting, pony rides, show practice, etc. also very fun water aerobics everyday for the adults in big pool which I loved. They have loads going on which kept us all entertained. U can partake as much or little as u like. Evening entertainment was great for kids. Our girls loved bufo and katty, the mascots. Good mini disco each night but we tended to go back to apartment once bingo started, mainly as our girls wouldn't sit through it and were tired. Excellent Cocktails and drinks on tap all night til 1130pm I believe. Not watered down either. ;) I have to say we had a brilliant holiday, I think rooms were not quite as modern as I would have liked for the price we payed. They had everything we needed however. This hotel is in a random location I felt, perfect if u don't want to leave the complex (you have no real reason to) but if we had stayed longer than a week, I think I would have got a bit tired of just walking around the complex. It's about a 5 min walk downhill to can picafort which is nothing to write home about (80s style Spanish resort and quite rundown in parts) beach is gorgeous however once you reach it. We spent a full day at it and had massages there which were great. Watersports are plentiful if u walk along beach a bit, but for us the beach itself was perfect for our girls, they were delighted with just buckets and spades :) All in all I would recommend this resort if you have children, they won't be bored at all, and happy kids = happy parents. Airport transfer takes at least an hour so just make sure to have some snacks and entertainment with you :)More
