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

Sarah O,

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

Anna-marie C,

hotel to go if you are with kids

It was indeed a fantastic stay! We liked almost everything and we even considering about coming back (despite I always though of I will never stay at the same place twice since the world is so big). Just few little observations: - We have stayed in the room on the ground floor with garden. While the room itself and the garden was really nice, however having neighbours above is not good if you have a small child. Floor in rooms is of tiles and thus if your neighbour from above drag a chair you hear it like it is done in your own room. During the day nap or early in the morning it is not the sound you would like to hear. So next time we take the top floor room (even if we renounce garden because of that). - Food was often too salty (even in the kids menu). I think that the hotel which is children oriented, should limit the amount of salt. It is anyway more easy to add salt, then to remove it. - Hotel is at the walking distance (around 10 min) from the beach. However that beach is not very beautiful (narrow and with houses around), so it is handy to have a car and to drive to other, more attractive beaches. More

Superb Resort - A truly memorable stay, Kids Paradise!

We stayed at the hotel for the last week of Sept for 7 days all inclusive with our three and a half year old daughter. The hotel is located 1 hour 25mins away from the airport by coach transfer. Our hotel stop was last. No problems at all with the transfer. The hotel is situated inland in a quiet area surrounded by other hotels with the beach only a 7-10min stroll downhill. At the beach, you will find plenty of activities and there are plenty of restaurants, tourist shops and small supermarkets. We arrived at the hotel just after 2pm, there was a queue of guests waiting to check in. However there seemed to be one member of staff. Check in took little over 10mins. The lady was very friendly and welcoming. We were given a map of the local area. Reception area is large with an Internet access room, tourist information area, a very large chess play set with lots of seating areas dotted around. It is spotlessly clean. Trolleys are available for use at reception for your luggage however, hotel does not offer a porter service. You can hire bikes from the hotel for a daily charge with the additional facility of car hire through hotel reception. Beside the check-in counter there is a left luggage room, handy for luggage storage once checked out of apartment. Hotel check out time is slightly early at 12 noon. You can weigh your luggage on scales too at reception at 1€ charge. If you need to make phone calls, there are two phone calling booths, again, chargeable. Under the reception on the lower level there is an indoor swimming pool with a jacuzzi and sauna facility, 2x showers and toilets. No designated changing area. The temperature in the pool is very warm, ideal for small children and not very deep at only 1m. Few things need attention. There is no wall clock anywhere so difficult if you want to know the time, unless you have a waterproof watch! The jacuzzi start button is on the wall about 3m away. You have to get out of the jacuzzi and switch it on. This was so annoying getting in and out every 10minutes. It could have been better designed! Adjacent to the indoor swimming pool there is a reasonably sized gym with running machines, rowing machines, various body workout machines along with a free weights area. We did not use gym so cannot comment on it. Also on this level there is a 24 hour open laundry room consisting of two washing machines, two tumble dryers, an iron and ironing board . To our amazement it was free! Couldn't believe it. We washed and dried all our laundry night before we got back, best thing we did, saved us so much time. You will need to use your own detergent which can be bought from the on-site general shop. Best time to use washing machines was early morning around 7-8am just before breakfast as they were always in use in afternoons and often up until 11pm! Next to the laundry room there is a doctor's consulting room. A doctor attends Mon - Sat at 11am and 18.30pm Our apartment was in block 2 of 6. All blocks have ground, 1st and 2nd floors and are nestled around the pool areas. All blocks have lifts. The apartment was huge, nothing like I have ever seen before. Approximately twice the size of a UK Travelodge hotel room! It was on the first floor facing the road. It was quiet at all times. We escaped the wrath of the mosquitoes. We were fortunate that there weren't any in our apartment. Our friends weren't so lucky! The separate lounge area was very large with an 8ft "L" shaped comfy sofa which turned Into a sofa bed, wall mounted flat screen TV which had many channels including BB1, BBC2, CBeebies, ITV1 and CITV, plenty to keep the kids distracted. The TV has a HDMI socket so ideal to link up the laptop. No DVD player in apartment. The apartment could easily accommodate a family of 2 adults and 2 older children. The Wifi signal was strong and throughout the apartment which was free. Also in the lounge was a double wardrobe/storage area, dining table with 3 chairs adjacent to a tucked away kitchenette with 2x hob burners, microwave, under worktop fridge, toaster, kettle, all cutlery, crockery with pots/pans and dustbin. We had problems with the air conditioning it didn't seem to work effectively. Called up reception and it was rectified the following day. The apartment was immaculately clean, with high walls and ceilings decorated in neutral pastel colours with terracotta tiles and wall paintings. Flooring could be better as gave the apartment a dated look. The apartment has a very spacious calming feel to it and was well lit. Lots of space for children to play/run around! Bedroom was in a separate room, again, very large with a very comfortable super king bed with a double tall wardrobe, containing a safe for valuables with a daily charge of €2.50. There were 2 bedside tables with lights. Extra bedding and pillows are kept in the lounge wardrobe. There are patio doors leading onto the spacious balcony which has a round table and 4 chairs as well as a wall mounted clothes airer. The balcony can also be accessed from the lounge patio doors. Both bedroom and lounge had floor to ceiling total blackout curtains, ideal for kids' afternoon naps or to sleep off that killer hangover from the bar each night!!! The bathroom had a full size bath with an over bath shower. There was a separate large rain shower in a large separate cubicle with a mid level shower too. The rain shower water pressure and flow was phenomenal! Did not want to come out! Hot water was not a problem at all. The walls are fully tiled and very clean. The sink is outside the bathroom with a large wall mounted mirror and hair dryer. There is no shaving point. Soap and a shower gel dispenser in the shower cubicle are provided. Housekeeping clean the apartment 5 days a week except Wed/Sun. Each time it was cleaned pristinely to a high standard with old towels replaced. Vanessa, our housekeeper was friendly, smiling and always greeted us even though she was rushed off her feet! In all, we were very satisfied with our apartment. You can, for a charge upgrade to the Garden Apartment which is an identical apartment but on the ground floor. Additionally you get a garden with a hammock. Food and Drink Breakfast/Dinner/Lunch was served at the Caprice buffet restaurant. Breakfast was good here with a variety of food from full English breakfast to continental and beyond. There was breads, pastries, cereals, yogurts, fresh fruits, omelette station, coffee/tea machines, fresh juices, freshly made smoothies. We found breakfast by day three to be very repetitive. Not much change in what was being offered. There were two microwaves much needed for warming up kids milk/baby food. Food at dinner/lunch time was a true feast. Freshly cooked and served hot, there was so much choice, that it catered for the most fussy of palettes! They had themed nights on few nights offering cuisine from around the world. The quality if the food was great considering there was so much choice of food! There was even a separate menu for children. Lots of healthy salads and vegetarian foods too. Soft drinks/juices and alcoholic beers on demand. Desserts were amazing couldn't keep away. I'm sure my trousers were a little tight on flight back! We rarely queued up for food despite it being very busy. Best time to come was 18.30 to avoid queues. The restaurant also has an outdoor dining area but we refrained after lots of mosquito bites on day two. Inside was best option. It was very much like a large canteen, but it was clean and well appointed. The pool bar serves food and drink from 12.00 noon to 4pm, and offers great tasty foods poolside, with a variety of pizzas, burgers, salads and desserts. There is also a bar here and ice cream freezer offering ice creams, lollies all day and free complimentary mineral water. Quality of the food was fantastic with generous portions. The pool bar by night transforms into an a-la carte restaurant where you have to book for a one night dining opportunity and attend in accordance with its "casual elegance" smart dress code. We didn't attend therefore unable to comment. The sports bar is located indoors within a large seating area, often used for evening live entertainment alternatively large screens show those important football matches or world sports events. Next to the bar there are two tall fridges one stacked to the brim with complimentary mineral water bottles whist the other is full of complimentary oranges/bananas, choc chip cookies/biscuits and freshly made sealed sandwiches. A great facility to have! The bar was great with an expansive menu of branded beers/wines/spirits with a variety of cocktails, milkshakes and ice creams. Being all inclusive it was heavenly. The main swimming pool is very large with three circular sections connected via walk bridges. The pool was very cold yet adults and children were in the pools. There were plenty of sun loungers around and we did not have to wait to get one partly due to it being off season. All the pools except the indoor pool were cold. Towels for the pool and loungers were handed out by either the pool lifeguards or hotel reception. If these were not handed back by time of check out expect to be fined €10 per towel! Ouch! The adult pool is a great retreat from family and kids as it is for adults only. A stylish pool surrounded by large lie on leather beds with drapes for your privacy. The pool features a jacuzzi in one corner. It's very relaxing and peaceful here away from all the distractions and noise. Children's swimming/splash pool area is fantastic with a pirate boat with three various water slides being the main attraction. There are further smaller colourful sea animal water slides, all surrounded by loungers for parents to relax whilst their toddlers and young children enjoy the shallow splash area. The water here is only 0.4m deep. This splash pool was very busy and popular with kids throughout our stay despite being very cold!. Our daughter too, enjoyed it! As mentioned previously, there is an indoor heated pool, located in the main reception building on the lower floor. There were plenty of activities for kids to enjoy at the resort. The hotel caters for young children and for slightly older ones with its Mini Maxi clubs, where children can attend activities from t-shirt painting to dancing. Hotel also offers pony riding sessions on a Wed at 5pm for a charge. Next to the kids splash pool area there are carousel rides and arcade machines with pool tables for adults, all at a small charge. A kids play park with climbing frame and slides can be found nearby alongside a bouncy castle and small trampoline for the younger ones. There is plenty to keep children busy all day and at night also. Evening entertainment for the children consisted of a mini disco at 8pm with the famous "Bufu - dog and Katty - cat" characters dressed up in colourful outfits on stage. The hotel viva entertainment for the kids got a little boring, repetitive and unimaginative, yet the younger children loved it. If your kids are over 7yrs they will be bored. Be sure to occupy them some other way! Adult evening entertainment featured live shows in the lounge bar the first days whilst we were here due to rain. Last few days the shows were held outside at the open amphitheatre with daily shows from 9-10pm. We saw "Grease"- the musical, "Girl Group Tribute", "Camden Circus", Odyssey Magician show and the Solex acrobat show. All the shows were fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed them. As it was outside, many parents were smoking, a nuisance especially as there were children everywhere. There is a small on site cinema which shows classic children's Disney movies three times a day and family movies for adults in the evening at 9pm Next to the cinema there is a general store which sells all your daily basic groceries along with UK newspapers, swimming inflatables-which surprisingly were cheap! The hotel also offers a back massage/manicure/pedicure service for a charge. Remember to take a European adaptor plug to charge up all your mobiles or other devices. Not to worry if you forget as the on-site shop sells them. The hotel grounds are extremely pleasant with palm trees everywhere and lots of greenery and colourful flowers. The resort is well laid out and perfect for families with children. This is the perfect resort for families with children. If you do not have children then is not the place for you. The staff at the hotel are simply superb. They are all smiling, welcoming and genuinely hard grafters. They will go out of their way to fulfil all of your needs despite being super busy. No request is too much. A special thanks to "Ines" at the Caprice Restaurant who, greeted us daily and even called our daughter by her name! The staff are the real assets of this hotel. That's what makes Viva Can Picafort what it is really is- a great family vacation resort! Overall, we had a great time at Viva Can Picafort. It exceeded our expectations in all departments. Our daughter had the holiday of a lifetime. She even made a holiday friend. To see her happy day after day, made our holiday that much more special and worth every penny.. It was good value for money and we would not hesitate to recommend it. We cannot wait to return to Viva Can Picafort next year! Apologies for such a long review.... Hope it was of help to all travellers... More
