Not what I was expecting - Impressive!

A much needed break was required and my friend kindly took over the whole booking of our holiday to Viva C'an Picafort in North East Mallorca. I was nervous; it is an all-inclusive 'family' hotel which gave me visions of over-crowded restaurants and pool-areas, lots of screaming kids (I like kids, but don't find kids that don't belong to me 'relaxing') and mediocre food and drink. I was also expecting disinterested staff and noisy nights - hardly the relaxing break I had in mind, but as my friend did all the booking, I couldn't complain, could I? Fortunately, no need to! this holiday was a complete revelation and I simply can't fault it. So, to start with the staff; Friendly, smiley and helpful; polite, courteous and smart. The staff were extremely hardworking and the place was spotless and safe - Good start! Next, the hotel room. I was surprised at the size - a decent sized bedroom and lounge area, bathroom with bath and shower, nice balcony and a kitchenette (not that we used it). All clean, tidy and although not brand new, excellent condition. The pool area was lovely; we (my friend, her husband and our 2 daughters aged 11 and 9) set up 'camp' on the grassed area, rather than by the pool-side, although this was near enough to the pools and facilities, it removed us just slightly from the sunbeds on top of sunbeds around the pool. Everyone there seemed to have the best behaved children in Europe! loads of smiling happy faces and the only occassional 'tired baby' crying was heard. The pools themselves were clean and just the right temperature (can't bear over-heated swimming pools) and the life-guards were constant and observant. I felt confident that my daughter and her friend were safe and enjoying their 'freedom' of being able to swim 'without a parent' every time they wanted to have a dip. The all-inclusive range of drinks was great and I loved the process of ordering food and then being given a device which vibrated when your food was ready - no hanging around by the food area along with hundreds of others. I was really impressed with the food, both during the day and the breakfasts and evening meals. I honestly thought it would be 'fried this' and 'fried that' with chips and that be about our lot. But no, loads of freshly cooked and super-delicious options from squid to beef, local delacies to international. The choice was exceptional and I can't fault it one little bit. This was a really good family holiday. No, it's not best suited to the solo traveller or couples wanting a romantic break but you wouldn't go here if that's what you're after. I'm not surprised that Viva C'an Picafort is ranked the best hotel in town - I absolutely recommend it.More

Brilliant Hotel for Families with children

travelled last week of August 2014, 2 adults and 2 kids aged 3 & 5. amazing holiday for our family. the pool scene is brilliant, large pools. 1 is 1.5m deep and the other large pool is 1m deep and my 5 year old was touching the bottom ok while our 3 year old was happy bobbing around with arm bands on, the splash pool is only shallow and has 14 slides which the kids absolutely loved. kids clubs and loads of pool activities all included on all inclusive holiday with first choice. buffet breakfast excellent, lunch at the pool bar a la carte menu really good, evening buffet restaurant excellent with themed nights, best one was the sea food night with prawns / tiger prawns, squid etc. pool bar turns into Italian at night which needs to be prebooked a day before and again service / food was great. good drinks aswell with all inclusive, lots of branded drinks like Baileys / Tia Maria and a proper old fashioned pint glass for the beer. also cocktails made to order unlike some hotels that serve them out of a ready mixed machine. kids loved the Micky cocktails with 2 Kiwi slices for ears. No problems getting sun beds at any time of day. room was a decent size with separate kids bed settee in lounge area and a kitchen with fridge. view onto a quiet road but large pine trees obscuring the road, look out for lots of lizards on the balcony walls when you arrive back for bedtime. other rooms faced the pools but ours was nice and quiet. had to pay 16 euros for safe. wifi not very good but we were on holiday so it didn't bother us much. tv had bbc and teletext to catch up on news etc, also Cbeebies which was useful for the kids now and again. free bottled water available all day from pool bar fridge aswell as ice cream, lollies, choc ices. Beach only 10-15 min walk with kids, beautiful beach with white sand and really shallow water, kids loved it, pedallos for hire which we loved. staff excellent. entertainment based around the kids most nights but the adults do get some shows, the rat pack was very good. most nights entertainment finishes about 2215 which was fine for us with young kids. This is the best 4* all inclusive we have been to with our kids over the last few years. we have booked Viva Menorca for next year in the hope that its as good. ps definitely book an evening to the Pirates Show which was great entertainment for adults and kids, at the end of our holiday a few of the pirates even visited our resort as a marketing stunt which our kids loved as they ran around the resort with the kids for half an hour doing pirate things like walk the plank etc.More

Nice Hotel- enjoyable family break

We travelled with 2 children aged 9&6 last week of August 15. The hotel and the grounds are very nice and secure which is nice. The staff at the hotel very pleasant and friendly. The entertainers, Junior, Alexandra, max. Very good with the children and they make the activities enjoyable. Children's club well organised and the staff brilliant with the kids. Good range of activities in the day for adults. Archery,pistol and rifle shooting, water polo & football. Cannot fault the pool area, which is nice. sun beds were not an issue when we stayed and there was a nice mix of nationalities and people during the duration of our stay. Apartments are basic in terms of decoration and could do with updating. The beds are awful, but not so bad that you struggle to sleep on them. Can Picafort the town is very unattractive and dirty, there is little to offer in the town. The hotel and it's activities were enough to keep us occupied during the day. The food on offer is better at Viva than our previous stay at the mestral apartments in menorca on A/L and the drinks and spirits are branded variety. The staff are brilliant, all of the staff very friendly and polite and always willing to help. If you are after a hotel with young children this would be a good choice. The Wifi is not brilliant, but accessible most of the time ,although it is very slow. My main gripe would be the transfer times which was an hour from the airport, but travelling from the hotel to the airport takes over 2 hours. Our flight was at 8.30 am but First choice insisted on picking us up at the hotel at 4.15AM and spending an hour driving round the narrow streets of can picafort picking up other passengers, then a further hour to the airport. In my opinion I don't see the point of the Reps being at the hotel as they know next to nothing about the area or it's amenities and the staff at the hotel are extremely helpful. The evening entertainment is not brilliant, some of the shows and music are a bit dated. The bingo seems to take an eternity to complete and it was a bit tired. We stayed for 10 nights and I think this was the ideal amount of time for what the hotel and Can picafort had to offer.More

A comparison with Viva Menorca

This is the second Viva we have stayed at. Most people have said the right things so I thought I would write a review comparing it with Viva Menorca at Cala'n Bosch in case you were trying to decide which to go to. The rooms at Can Picafort are a little bigger and maybe a little less dated looking. They're similarly clean and the beds aren't amazing. The food is great at both but for me the Menorca one was slightly better. But that would be nit picking. And the drink is great. If you're a lager drinker like me then you'll be pleased to note Estrella as the inclusive beer rather than some generic watered down stuff. The wine wasn't amazing but cocktails are generous and prompt. First class service at both resorts. Kids club great and no difference really. There's more staff at the Can Picafort one and it's slightly bigger. The layout here is slightly better to my mind. The place feels a little more spacious. But still feels small and personal. The evening entertainment is tragic here. But that's ok. Nobody seriously goes for the evening shows. In all you should go to either. They're both superb resorts and you won't be disappointed. If you're trying to decide between menorca and this one, then I would probably recommend menorca just because the food was slightly better. But the layout here I think was better and the rooms slightly bigger so depends which is important to you. More

Perfect Family Holiday

Just arrived home from a week at Viva Mallorca. Two adults and two children 8 and 12. We were very impressed from the moment we entered the hotel. We got there at about 10.15pm checked in very quickly and told that although the restaurant was now closed there was a cold buffet available. There was a huge selection of cold meats, cheese, breads and salad, coffee, tea and cold drinks. The hotel was immaculately clean at all times. Meals were buffet style with every type of breakfast, lunch and dinner you could think of. We spent our lunchtimes at the pool bar which was equally lovely, waiter service for drinks throughout the evening and in the restaurant. The kids could help themselves to a big variety of ice creams. The pool bar was open from 10am till 6pm and they had a good range of named alcoholic drinks. The maid service was 5 days out of 7. Entertainment was good, something different every evening and the kids team worked tirelessly to give the kids loads to do, my two didn't join in but enjoyed watching the mini disco in the evenings. The pool was fantastic, 3 pool depths linked together something for all ages, then another pool for the kids with a few slides and a huge pirate ship for them to play in. There was always sunbeds available each with a parasol and loads of shade it you wanted it. All in all this was a lovely family holiday and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a family holiday with a bit of luxury, definately a four star hotel. Thank you Viva Mallorca.More
