Viva Ca'n Picafort

Viva Ca’n Picafort is set within arm’s reach of the town centre and a sandy beach, plus it lines up kid-friendly stuff like waterslides, pool games, and talent shows.

This place goes all out to impress, with a massive pool, a splash park, and loads of sports and activities. Location-wise, Ca’n Picafort’s sandy beach is 10 minutes’ walk away and the town centre is even less.

Great time had by all

This is a great place for kids and adults, food is good, could have been a bigger choice (hotel wasn't full by any means) what was there was good. Some great entertainment some not so hot. There is about a 15 min walk to the beach and 7 mins to the well stocked supermarket its on the right hand side of-the big blue hotel. Place to head for if you are SC or just like a wander. Staff at the hotel are fab 5 star service from them. We will be back next May hope we get the weather we had this time. Well worth the 1hr 45 min transfer from airport.More

Great family hotel

We went here for a week in May 2015, with a 4 year old and a 14 month old and had a great time. Ideal for the 4 year old, with a great splash zone that he spent most of the holiday on, as well as a small park with a modern climbing frame and slides. Not much for infants but then we weren't expecting much, as I've not seen many hotels with a soft play area or similar. Food was a high standard, only a few things I tried during the week weren't done to a great standard, 95% was good quality and well prepared. One issue we had was that we booked through Jet2 and there was an additional charge at the hotel for the use of a cot of €4 a day, which wasn't on any paperwork but that's more an issue with Jet2 than the hotel. The rooms themselves were very spacious and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was large with a separate shower cubicle and bath. We had a standard balcony but we noticed some of the premium ground floor rooms facing the inside of the complex had their own gardens, with padded sun loungers and a hammock so if that interests you then ask about it when booking. The grounds and buildings were immaculate and very well maintained. Would go back there again and would recommend it. More

Super stay at the Viva

Just returned from a weeks stay here, two adults and a 2.5 year old. Really recommend this hotel. The journey was about 1 and a quarter hours from the airport. The hotel is very clean, it's nice that it's only 3 stories high so blends into the surroundings, the grounds and gardens are lovely - very well maintained and attractive. We paid extra for a garden room - I'm glad we did as it gave us somewhere to relax on the sun beds/loungers when our daughter had a nap. The room itself is spacious, clean and has a small kitchenette for self catering. The bed was very big and very comfortable. Nice big shower, although the temperature was a bit variable which wasn't great. Lots of pools, the children's splash pool was the main reason we chose the viva. Our daughter loved it, although we were quite disappointed how cold the pool was - but I expect this is a similar case in most hotels at this time of year. If it had been heated it would be so much better. Loads of sun beds around main pool but could get busy around splash pool. Playground, trampoline and bouncy castle good. Food is available in the main restaurant and we found it very varied at every meal with lots of choice. Different meats/fish cooked in front of you. Excellent choice for children (which obviously also included all of the adult choice too). We definitely couldn't complain. A la carte at the pool bar once per stay - we had steak and a burger, very nice but not quite sure the pool bar worked as an a la carte restaurant. I thought it was an Italian, but it mainly seemed meat - no pasta/pizza dishes as you would expect. Really enjoyed the beach down at can picafort. The sea was so clear, calm and ideal for our daughter. A few touts on the beach, mainly for massages but not too much of a bother. The beach is definitely 15 mins walk (much more with a two year old walking). A taxi is only about 4e. You also pass a little playground on the way. We went on a pedalo which was 15e for the hour. We really enjoyed it. Lots of shops, restaurants and bars much more than I was expecting. Big market on a Friday. We enjoyed the land train too around the town, 3e each and it took 45 mins. We went on a boat trip for a few hours around the north of the island. 20e each (no charge for our daughter) it took you to a secluded bay where you could swim. We saw some mountain goats which was interesting. We would do that again too. Overall, I think can picafort is a nice place, superb beach. The hotel I think is the best in the area, although possibly the furthest away from the town - but that means it's more spacious and quieter. I would definitely recommend a visit here. More

Nicola A,

Viva Ca'nt Cater

Unfortunately, we are writing to complain about our holiday at Viva C'an Picafort in Majorca, where we arrived on Saturday 2nd May, 2015. During our stay, both my wife and I suffered from a severe case of food poisoning at the hands of the catering staff at the hotel. My wife became ill after our meal at the buffet restaurant on our first night and myself after eating at the pool bar on Monday. Due to the severity of our illness, we had to receive medical attention from the hotel Doctor who confirmed after examining us (three times during the week), that we were suffering from food poisoning. As a result, we were scarcely able to leave our room to enjoy the facilities which we paid a significant amount of money for. This gross inconvenience has effected us even beyond our return home as we are both continuing to experience symptoms for which we are still receiving medical treatment (that's almost a fortnight!). We would much rather be writing to say how much we enjoyed our holiday, however, because we were so ill our poor two year old daughter missed out on a lot of the activities we had planned. Having enjoyed a great holiday through First Choice at Holiday Village Majorca in September of last year we were so disappointed to have had such a horrendous experience. At this point I would like to praise our hotel rep Neal who was first class throughout our stay. He was kind enough to pick up our prescriptions the Doctor gave us when we were too ill to leave our room and always came to see how we were doing. We can't speak highly enough of him, he is a credit to the company. On a positive note, the cleaning staff were excellent. All the public areas and toilets were spotless. They were very friendly, as were the staff at reception. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was a good size with a kitchenette. Unfortunately our room was at the back facing onto the road. Wouldn't have been a problem if we were able to get out more though. The entertainment was average, certainly not as good as at the Holiday Village resort. Because the majority of guests at the hotel were German, the entertainment staff spoke German during the shows so we were left out. On saying that the entertainment staff spoke perfect English when dealing with us directly and they were all very pleasant and great with children. There were plenty of activities available for all kids age groups but due to not being fit to take my daughter to any of these i cannot comment further. The pool is a good size and the splash pool for kids is excellent. Next to this there is a kids play area with slides, a trampoline and bouncy castle so there is certainly plenty available for them to enjoy. The bar staff were friendly. With regards to the food, well obviously my view is tainted. There is a decent choice at the pool bar, but the buffet restaurant was a bit 'samey'. There wasn't much choice for kids other than pizza every night plus one other dish. Be wary of the seafood. All we managed the rest of the week was dry bread and water. To summarise, we are extremely annoyed that due to sub standard catering, our family holiday was completely ruined. We feel that the hotel has robbed us and our two year old daughter of our holiday. So, we certainly will not be returning.More

Outstanding Viva can picafort

We are just back from our stay in viva can picafort. We stayed for a week with our 4 yr old daughter. We loved everything about our stay in the hotel. The facilities in the hotel were great, our daughter loved the kids splash pool, play section and the big trampolines, we all loved the evening entertainment which is aimed at kids and adults. We used the self catering facilities, all the cooking utensils were spotless and it had everything we needed, pots, pans, utensils, microwave, kettle, fridge freezer, toaster. We went to the supermarket Mercadona which was down the road and got everything we needed for a low price e.g 5L water for 60 cents, also plenty of meats, cereals & breads also a bottle of cava for €2.25 a bottle. The hotel is literally a 5 minute walk from the beach. There is a lovely street with lots of stalls and souvenir shops along the way and with plenty of options for food. The rooms were spotless, modern and very comfortable to stay in. The staff were very friendly and very professional. We would not hesitate to come back to this hotel and highly recommend it to other families especially with kids. We will have great memories from this holiday.More
