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.

There were 8 of us aged one to 65 in two rooms allocated which overlooked a road (not busy but not a nice view) so we went to reception and upgraded to the Royal Suites, not cheap but the rooftop spa and terrace were worth the money. My only criticisms of the hotel revolves around these suites where you pay a lot extra (although we did get a reduction as we had two of them) but the rooms and facilities are exactly the same as a standard room. For the extra money I do not think you should have to pay for a safe or a cot in the room and it should run to at least some water and soft drinks in the fridge. Now my only gripe is complete I will praise every aspect of this hotel, the food, bars, pools, cleanliness etc are excellent. It is designed for children and our three little people had a great time. Would I go back there? without hesitation but I would book a standard garden view room next timeMore
Had a great time here, great hospitality. children loved the variety of pools and things to do, lovely place !! Lovely staff and food and children got involved In performances, Would come back again ððMore
This was the first time abroad with our ten month old daughter and we were a bit nervous but the Viva was excellent. When we arrived at the room, the cot was set up and included a little travel kit for the baby. The room was great, very spacious and the separate living area meant we could put our daughter to bed and then watch TV in the lounge area. We went all inclusive and the food was excellent. Lots of choice and plenty of things for a weaning baby to eat too! The staff were great with our daughter and subtly swept up everything she dropped from her highchair. We walked a couple of times to the beach and also rented some bikes which was good fun. The only drawback was that the outside pools were pretty cold meaning we couldn't take our daughter in. We did use the indoor pool however, and if we had gone later in the season, I'm sure the pools would have warmed up a bit by then. They were pretty spectacular!More
My family have recently returned from this hotel after spending 11 days there. Firstly, the good points. It is a very large, well maintained and clean hotel. Their are various pools which you can use, including the swim up pools if you want things little less hectic. There were always plenty of beds with no rush to place towels down which is unusual these days. My son who is 12, enjoyed the large slide and bounce ball pool with the fiends he had made after a few days. The breakfasts where good with plenty of things on offer, lunchtime had a choice of the snack bar or the main restaurant. We mainly used the snack bar as it was near to the pools and there was a good choice of snacks to choose from, which was then cooked freshly. I will come to the evening meals later. Other snacks and ice creams where also available throughout the day and night. The drink selections whew the best I have had at any hotel - premium brands (although you had to ask for these), bottles of beer, as well as draft and various coffees, milkshakes and slushes. The rooms where big and although a little drab in their dÃ©cor, always clean and well maintained when we had a small problem. The staff were excellent, always on hand, very polite and extremely hard working - top notch. Now unfortunately for the bad points. The food on the evening, although not bad, was very average compared to the rest of the day. It was mainly fish and paella on the show cooking, or sometimes poor quality meat. We did not enjoy any evening meal except the one night you allowed at the steak restaurant - although a work of caution: The steak is not beef as it is in England - it is Ox, which is very fatty and not of the some quality - some of our fiends had sirloin and T-bone, but they where very fatty and not well cooked. The real let down was the entertainment programs - unless your child is under 5, there is nothing. Our 12 year old became bored with the lack of activities - you can only go on one slide so many times. Usually, you get the team walking round the pool encouraging people to join in, there was none of this - the days activities are on a board at the side of the snack bar and you have to wait near the stage to join in - I done this once for the pistol shooting - no one turned up. They have a football academy, but the two lads who do this, just walked quickly along the side of the pool bouncing a ball before quickly walking off and then locking the gate to the football pitch so that no one else could get on - very poor. The evening entertainment was horrendous - a couple of the usual children songs, followed by a photo session with a dragon (I think) and then an act on stage by someone that would have been paid off stage in any local social club - it was painstakingly bad. Thank god the football was on to watch, but a note to parents - if your child is running around jumping on the stage in front of the screen showing the football - MOVE THEM!!! Lastly - the hotel location is not the best - it is right on the outskirts of the resort - it takes around 20 minutes to walk into the centre of the resort To sum things up Hotel - good, but can do better Food - good, but can improve on the night Drink - excellent Entertainment - very poor Location - not so good. Although we enjoyed our holiday - we would not return to this hotel again.More
Second time at this lovely family resort,didnt disappoint.staff very friendly and helpful especially the bar staff.Everywhere was very clean,food was very nice,pool bar was amazing.Children loved the splash pool.Rooms were clean and spacious,Each block was in a good position,ours looked onto a side road,it had a good sized balcony which was private and quiet.It also had a decent gym which was sometimes too hot inside so would benefit from some air con ,mentioning air con, I have to say the air con in the room was very noisy and didn't work in the bedroom,reported this to reception who sent someone within the hour,fixed bedroom but noise soon came back..overall it was a great holiday and we are planning to return next year.More
