Good family holiday
We visited for a week in September 2016 on a self catering basis. 2 adults and one toddler. The apartments were comfortable. We had one bedroom with a separate lounge area that contained a small kitchenette. This had a fridge, small cooker and hob, kettle. Rooms were clean and maid service good. If you book all inclusive here there aren't a huge amount of options. But we've probably just been a bit spoilt on a previous trip. There's one bar open in the day. Another for the evening. Buffet food was good. We went self catering and you can use these facilities on a pay as you go basis, but beware that it's all cashless so you will a generate a bill to be paid at the end of your stay (this can be cash I expect, but we used our visa). Location really good. Just a 10 minute stroll to the beach (for accessibility I'll just point out the hotel is slightly on a hill) and the front where there are lots of lots of shops and restaurants so self catering was not a problem at all. There's a large supermarket about 5 minutes away and lots of spar type places town towards the beach. Really decent apartments with a good buffet, decent drinks at the bar, a great kids pool area and good location to the beach.More

Fantastic experience of an all inclusive resort
We booked this holiday after looking at the tripadvisor reviews and believed it would be ideal for us since we have two children aged 4 and 8. We were not disappointed with our choice. We stayed during October half term and the hotel was quiet particularly during the end of the week, a bonus for us as we avoided crowded swimming pools and noisy mealtimes ( I'm sure that this would be the case in high season) The hotel was immaculately clean. The selection of food was immense - yes at times it wasn't very warm but we tried to get to the restaurant for the start of food service to ensure it was hotter. It is a buffet and inevitably hot food will get cold. You can order freshly cooked food from the poolside bar at lunchtime if you want hotter food. The all-inclusive drinks were amazing - our kids loved the chocolate milkshakes and we loved the cocktails. We paid extra for our son to take part in the football course unfortunately because it was the end of the season it was only on for 3 days. I think the cost of this was expensive, 50 euros for 2 hours each day. However the coaching was excellent and our son thoroughly enjoyed the sessions. Our daughter enjoyed going to the kids club which has different activities each hour, so she was able to pick and choose the ones she wanted to join in with. It is well organised and the entertainers have so much enthusiasm. The play area is small but sufficient and has a trampoline, bouncy castle and play structure with slides. The BUFO disco every night was the highlight of my daughters day she loved dancing with the other children and BUFO. The other evening entertainment wasn't great - although there was an acrobatic/juggling act one night that was really impressive. The hotel has a good amount of swimming pools to choose from. The bigger swimming pools were freezing at times - the kids splash pool was a comfortable temperature all week. The indoor swimming pool did get crowded, it is quite small and it also didn't have a lifeguard. The hotel is located about a 10 minute walk up a slight hill from the beach and town. The beach is quite small and I imagine would be very crowded in the summer. We hired bikes one day and cycled along the coast to platja de muro and port d'alcudia both of which had bigger and more beautiful beaches. We also travelled into Palma, but we were surprised at the cost of bus travel almost 40 euros return for 3 people (children over 5 travel at the same cost as an adult). We visited Palma cathedral which was spectacular and well worth a visit. The hotel staff are a credit to the hotel everyone we saw were working hard and were polite and friendly. The reception staff deserve a special mention they were always so busy but always cheery and helpful. Finally a word of advice if you are visiting at the end of the summer don't forget a bottle of insect repellent. We had luckily read about the chance of being bitten by mosquitos so had come prepared but still managed to collect a rather impressive number of bites between us.More
Great place to stay with family
Apart from the hotel closing down for the winter, what a great place for family holiday. The room was clean and large enough for the three of us with a small kitchen. Outside pools were cold but did not stop the playing. Indoor pool was warm. Kids club well managed with option to join in if wanting too without being hassled. Location was 10 minute easy walk from the beach with a small park with exercise equipment.More
The best and the worst holiday ever.
We visited Viva for 10 days in September. When we first arrived we were pleasantly surprised with how clean everywhere was. Everyone was super welcoming and made us feel right at home. There were 3 rooms to our party and viva were very accommodating as they put our rooms next to one another. My son received a nice little bag with a sponge, rubber duck, bath cream etc. Think it's for children under 1. Lovely touch. Also, had lots of little bags with a sewing kit, a comb, shaving kit, shoe polish etc by the mirror with the hairdryer. We requested a cot which was already in the room when we got there, but you do have to pay â¬4 a day for it. Cbeebies is on the tele which was a bonus! We did have a problem with our room key but we found out our mobiles messed with the magnetic strip so don't store your room key next to your phone. The room was spotless, escpecially the kitchen. The food was lovely and always plenty of choice. The cocktails were superb, the best I've had on an all inclusive. The kiddies splash pool was fab! Alot in the shade and not in direct sunlight which is awesome! I would advise for any young children to wear beach shoes as the floors can get quite slippery by the side of the pools. Unfortunately when we were here my mum very sadly passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly. I have previously read a review on here which mentioned this, which I am disgusted by. So I would like to set it straight. First of all, all of the medical staff and lifeguard done everything they could to save my mum. We had some very special holidaymakers that offered their help, from all different countries. I had a nurse, doctor and anethetist explaining the situation they could see. I had a lovely lady called jacqui who was part of the hotel medical team (I believe) who was translating everything she could hear back to me. The hotel doctor was very quick to my mums side. I do not believe they should of screened the area off as professionals had more important things to worry about, like trying to save my mums life, instead of worrying about who could see. Also I read that the lifeguards done a cpr exercise the following day, which we were unaware of, but im glad they did because maybe they felt they needed a refresher or just to practice their methods or maybe they had training booked? (Both previous points were mentioned in a previous review) The lifeguards were amazing and carried on to make my daughter to feel super special throughout our holiday even though you could see the sorrow in their eyes. Antonio the hotel director could not have done more for us, he was always there when we needed him and he translated documents that were being emailed to me. Thank you to the reps Leigh and Amy, you were so helpful and arranged paperwork that I needed, also support phonecalls and meeting with professionals. Thank you to the gentleman that worked in reception that translated the meeting with the funeral director. And a huge, gigantic thank you to the animation team, especially Tanja and Junior. You made my daughters holiday amazing, you also managed to cheer us up to! We will never forget you and what you have done for us. It was such a sad time for me and my family but somehow viva helped us get through it, even with a smile from us at times and for this we will be eternally grateful. More
Great half term autumn break.
We stayed for 1 week in October, All Inclusive. Hotel was great. All staff were very attentive and polite. The amenities were excellent for our 9 year old; She enjoyed the Kids Club, splash pool, mini golf, and the Pony ride for 6 euros. The hotel is made up of low rise blocks (3 floors), set in well kept gardens which made it a very pleasant place to spend the day. Food was excellent with a wide ranging buffet at every meal time. The beach was about 15 minute slow stroll away. The sea was great to swim in but a little too choppy for our young daughter. The hotel was not too crowded at the start of the week and almost empty at the end as it was due to shut the following week for the winter. All in all, highly recommended.More
