Ideal for young families but don't bother booking a 'privilege' room!

We had a brilliant stay at Viva C'an Picafort and would highly recommend to families with young children/early teens. The location of the hotel is great - lots of people say it's far from the beach but it's only a ten minute (downhill) walk to get there. The beach is lovely and clean and we always found space to put towels down. We took a taxi into the old town of Alcudia one morning and it was definitely worth it - a lovely place to wander about with lots of restaurants and cafes. The hotel itself is clean, the rooms are modern and spacious and our room was always left spotless after the cleaners had visited. The pool area has loads of choice for kids and, if you get an opportunity, the adults pool is superb for a quiet swim. The kids' club was brilliant - we didn't leave our kids as we prefer not to but we always went alng to 'pirate games' for an hour in the morning and paid a visit in the afternoon to get the kids out of the sun for a bit. One area for improvement - the area where the kids are taken for 'pirate games' although shaded, is in a dirty, sandy enclosure with pine needles from the trees and stones mixed into the sand. Several children, including my own, were left in tears after standing on something sharp during the activities. Other children just refused to play as they were too uncomfortable with the debris getting into their sandals! On a plus - the staff are wonderful, enthusiastic and encouraging. The food available in the restaurant was good, a wide variety with plenty healthy choices on offer. Queues can be big depending on when you go. While I would definitely recommend this hotel I will finish with one word of warning - don't bother booking a 'privilege room' i.e. one with a garden. I was more than annoyed upon arrival to be told that our room wouldn't be available until day 4 of our holiday. We had booked it especially and it was aggravating to arrive at a two week 'relaxing' get away to be immediately hit with a problem. We had to live out of our suitcases for the first 3 days which put a dampener on our holiday. We had to spend what was supposed to be quality family time going back and forth to reception and demanding to speak to the manager. At first we were told that they wouldn't refund the difference in room prices for the first 3 days which was totally outrageous and verging on fraudulent. We were then offered a free rental car for 3 days which we didn't even want. Eventually the manager agreed to refund the difference in room price and apologised to us. This was not a one off incident - EVERY person we spoke to who had booked a privilege room had also been treated in this way. It's not on and the hotel need to do something about this instead of blaming the tour operator! I also lost a dress in the process of moving rooms which was upsetting. Despite being a family friendly hotel they seem to have no problem treating families in this way - expecting families with young children to uproot after x number of days and move rooms. Moving and unpacking once with young children is enough! Luckily the rest of the holidays was so enjoyable that we got over this problem but it definitely left a sour taste and bad feeling.More

Holiday 2015

Excellent family hotel with good quality food, excellent food and nice climate. Due to the open structure of the hotel wind from see does come thru making the 30+ degrees ok if you are not used to it. Lots of good entertainment for kids in ghe Viva tradition. Nice clean modern rooms. Very good beds here is wellMore

4.5 out of 5 not 4 not quite 5 but very good!

Just returned from our 10 day stay and we had an absolutely amazing time. So many positives, I will try and list as many as I can: Staff - amazingly friendly. You don't get the impression it is just for tips. So efficient and helpful in all areas. Cleanliness - cleaning staff work tirelessly to maintain this, even individually hand washing sunbeds as I saw one morning. The toilets are kept spotless and dry. Choice of food and drink - amazed by the choice on offer. Buffet lunch and dinner as expected but other than that there is an all inclusive menu to choose from at the pool bar. I was expecting burgers, pizzas and similar snacks only. Incredible choice here. Cocktails excellent and amazing choice again, as well as non alcoholic. Wine including cava from the bottle not from pumps (apart from in restaurant). Mini club events / staff first class. Entertainment - generally very good, especially the childrens shows at 8pm. Very considerate shows tend to end 10-10.15pm so noise after this is minimal. A couple of negatives - quite large queues in the evening at the bar, although they move very quickly it is annoying if you only want a water. Pools - what a choice! a small childrens pool, a larger splash pool with 14 or 15 slides! A 1 metre pool and a 1.5m pool. Plus an adult pool which is beautiful. And at a sensible temparature, ie warm without being too hot. Apartments are great, very large and perfectly equipped. Fantastic (new) showers. Excellent large comfortable bed. Great sofa with trundle to sleep two children. Smoking policy - mostly down to ignorance of guests and the same as in any resort. Viva, make a stance. Smoking in the middle of a semi enclosed eating area is not acceptable. Your staff do not need to be working in this environment either. It is lovely eating outside at the buffet but people sit in the area by the stage smoking which drifts across. Same on the balconies. One point - it is around 35 miles from the airport, 45 minutes by car. Pay the extra, rent a car. It is worth it.More

Great for children

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Viva C'an Picafort. I would have given it a 4.5 as it wasn't perfect, but still amazing. It had so much for the kids. The splash pool was fantastic with several little slides and a couple of bigger ones from the pirate ship. I was disappointed that parents could not slide on the bigger slides with our little ones, but I understand this was for safety reasons. There were lifeguards at each pool and they were lovely.There were loads of children-only activities (loom bands, ironing beads, pony rides, T shirt painting, ‘creative hour’, games etc), which gave our kids a nice break from the heat and pools (they allowed our 2 year old join in the fun if we stayed to look after her as well). There was a variety of activities for the grown ups (pistol shooting, archery, rifle shooting, etc). The animation team was amazing - so lovely with the children and us! There was an amazing adults only pool (it had jets everywhere, enclosed sun beds, etc). The children's evening entertainment was excellent and the night entertainment which followed was usually good, so far as I saw. The food was good, not amazing, but how does one do amazing buffet food? What I was impressed by was the availability. The buffet restaurant hours seemed longer than other places we have been to, so we never queued at the door for a meal. There is also a bar restaurant with a nice selection of food, which turned into a evening restaurant (I think All Inc guests are allowed one visit per week at the evening restaurant, which offers a nice change from the buffet restaurant). The bar and restaurant staff were lovely. I was also very impressed by the allergy information and options. We have, in the past, had to deal with my daughter's allergies and only wished we'd stayed at Viva before! Not only did they have soya milk (which I personally don't understand as a common alternative as it is an allergen), they had oat milk, almond milk, and lactose free milk! Well done Viva for offering so many options! The rooms were great. We had two rooms - one bedroom and one lounge with a sofa which converted to a bed room, with a single bed on the sofa and a trundle bed. There was a little kitchen and a long balcony as well. The bathroom had a large shower and a separate bath, which again was great for us. The whole place was generally very clean, especially considering bottled water was offered. We had a couple of issues of cleanliness in our room and the stairs outside, but other than that the place was immaculate. We hired a car and so had no problems with it's location. It did start to get a bit busy toward, which meant longer queues at the bars, so this might be an issue now, but we don't know. Overall, we had a great time and are very grateful to the lovely people working there!More

Stayed at this hotel a few months back and quite honestly had a dreadful stay, minimal activities and located poorly. Strongly would discourage anyone who wishes to stay at this hotel due to its tedious location and somewhat poor hygiene aswell as a rude set of staff.More
