Just returned from 11 nights at Viva Can Picafort. Hotel was wonderful, great facilities, lovely garden room although having paid extra for it, we only sat in it once. So many pools, and large bubble for kids (and adults) to jump on. Good selection of food all day long. Beach about a 10/15 minute walk. My son absolutely loved attending the ESA Soccer Academy (esasoccer.co.uk). The coach Joe was great with the children, very encouraging and patient, it made our son's holiday and would highly recommend. Will definitely return!More

Having previously visited Viva Menorca and Viva Mallorca we are certainly fans of Viva resorts for all inclusive family holidays. This resort does not disappoint and you can see why it is rated so highly. From numerous outside pools, one with a water bubble which the kids loved, a good golf putting course, lots of activities and excellent food, this resort is certainly recommended. The kids enjoyed the t shirt painting and medal games with a chance to collect a medal in the evening from Bufo on stage!! The resort is only a 10 min walk to the beach and shops but is a long way from the airport. We booked a private transfer this year from the airport through Sun transfers and I would certainly recommend this, it beats 90 mins on a coach with lots of stops!! The rooms are clean and actually more modern than previous resorts. Usual small kitchen with bath and separate shower. Microwave in kitchen. The resort is not without a few niggles (let's face it, wherever you go will always have something and these are minor). Firstly the food counters are all in a line which means that people queue in a long line and this can be frustrating during peak times. Secondly, the drinks ordering is not great. Waiters work so hard but drinks take time to arrive and if you queue at the bar, this can also be lengthy. Both of these points are probably due to this being a very large resort and much bigger than previous Viva resorts we have stayed in. Acts were OK with particular highlights being the African acrobats and Elvis. Acts were not as good as previous years. For the first time this year, some shorts are measured. As the drinks are served in large fish bowl glasses with lots of ice, I could barely taste my dark rum. I hope both these points aren't a sign of Viva starting to compromise for profits. As I say, these are small points, the hotel and staff are great and all the family enjoyed their holiday. In my opinion, you can't go wrong with Viva resorts and we will continue to support this excellent chain of hotels. More
It is almost a week since me, my mum and step-dad returned from Viva now, however we were ready to return the morning after due to such a fantastic break. Firstly the rooms, we stayed in a royal terrace apartment in block 2, very spacious and extremely clean, room was cleaned every day, even on the Sunday and Wednesday which were stated as days which it wouldn't be cleaned. My bed was one in the lounge area and disappointingly it was the un-comfiest bed I have ever slept in, I only had 2 decent sleeps during my stay, it was very hard and narrow. The bathroom however is excellent, shower and a bath with over head shower, also the sink is located outside the bathroom area which is handy. The terrace really is superb, kitted out with a sun lounger, Jacuzzi and 2 seating areas, plenty of space to relax, just take extra care on the steps up to it as they are steep. We didn't make much use of the kitchen area as we stayed on half board plus, but there was plenty of crockery available plus a microwave, kettle and fridge, also washing up liquid and a tea towel, which we have usually had take to previous apart-hotels. The hotel grounds are absolutely beautiful, with grounds men working tirelessly every day clipping shrubs and watering. Reception staff were very pleasant on arrival and allowed us to stay for an extra 2 and a half hours on our departure day due to a late flight, meaning we could enjoy the facilities a little longer. Waiting staff at mealtimes also very pleasant, happy to find you a table during busy times, but slightly eager to clear away plates, one asking my step-dad if he had finished his dessert when his plate was still full! Nice pool area, although mainly centred around children, splash bubble taking up a whole pool, very popular with older children and 'big kid' adults, created a lot of noise and took up a good depth 1m pool. Under the bridge is another 1m pool, comfortable for swimming in, a little cold at first with a pool bar included, nice touch. There's also a 1.5m pool which appeared to be much quieter, but too deep for myself. The pool area is well maintained, with cleaners coming round sweeping throughout the day, the wooden bridges over the pools are a little dodgy, several large ridges on them making them harder to walk over particularly in bare feet. Lifeguards are excellent, one at every pool, a female one was very observant, regularly blowing her whistle. There is a sunbed reservation policy, which involves a card getting placed on reserved beds saying towels will be removed if beds are still empty in 40 minutes, however this isn't followed through. We used to go down around 9 and there were still plenty of beds available not around the bubble though. Now onto the best part the food, some of the best food I have eaten in 5 times of staying in Majorca, especially breakfast, such a wide range available, cereals, continental, full English, cakes, yoghurts the list is endless. Plenty of choice at dinner also, desserts were a little repetitive, but still very delicious. The children's selection looked a little disappointing, only 6 options, the vegetables were much better on the children's section though. The dining room did get extremely busy, I would advise eating early at breakfast and dinner to avoid this, before 9 in a morning, and before 7:30 at night. Outdoor dining also seemed to fill up quickly particularly at dinner, not so much in a morning maybe due to the position of the sun. Loved being able to help yourself to drinks in the dining area, soft and alcoholic! Night time entertainment was highly enjoyable, and varied we watched a magic act, acrobats, divas from the 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s and a Las Vegas show. If you want a seat in front of the stage I would advise getting there early before 8pm, as this is when the children's entertainment starts and seats start to fill up. We chose to move to the outdoor eating area to eat our desserts so that we could get a table to watch the entertainment. Daytime entertainment could be better, aqua zumba around 12 and then some water games in the afternoon, including water polo, which nobody seemed to be interested in. The hotel supermarket was very handy, ideal for snacks and drinks during the day if not staying all inclusive, fresh bread and cakes available too, prices not too high. The WI-FI was the best I have experienced at any hotel, good signal in most areas. The location of the hotel is good, but not the best if you enjoy going to the beach daily, good 15 minute steady walk and slightly uphill on the way back, worth it though, lovely clear blue shallow water and a very long sandy beach with plenty of sunbeds and parasols mid morning. C'an Picafort itself is a good resort, lots of shops, bars and restaurants, I would recommend the Chocolate bar/cafeteria at the end of the direct road down to the beach from the hotel (Ran de Mar), we spent an enjoyable evening there enjoying a few drinks whilst listening to a band that was playing. Overall I would return to Viva C'an Picafort as the facilities and service are very good, however I would say that it is mainly suited to families with young children not families with young adults like myself. I would also advise visiting during term time if possible, as it was a little too busy and noisy, which I am used to with being a nursery nurse, but I would have preferred it to have been a little quieter, as I was on holiday not at work. Thank you Viva for a wonderful stay!!More
