Reviewed 11 July 2014

We stayed for 10 days in mid June on a self catering basis. With two young children we were a bit unsure whether they'd be kept entertained and occupied at the resort but we were soon proven wrong. The pools, whilst quite cold, were excellent and the playground provided endless fun for them both. The rooms were a good size, clean and had all facilities needed. A travel cot was provided at €4 per night as well. Satellitve TV in the room was a nice to have although the signal would sometimes get interrupted due to weather etc. Evening entertainment was good, my eldest enjoyed the evening shows and loved being able to dance along and get involved with the characters. The hotel itself is set in a good location, very close to the beach and to local shops and restaurants (although the onsite shop and restaurant were both very good). Taxi's into Port Alcudia and Alcudia Old Town are roughly 10-15 euro's and the Old Town in particular is worth visiting, lovely cobbled streets with great restaurants.

Special mention must go to the hotel staff. We purchased some stuffed toys of the evening characters Bufo and Katte. When we checked out we left one of the toys behind so we emailed the hotel to see whether it had been handed in by any of the cleaning staff. An email back a couple of days later said they had indeed found her, could they have our address to post it back and she returned safe and sound a couple of weeks later! Also i celebrated my birthday during our stay, we returned from the pool that day to find a card and a bottle of Cava from the management team. Very much appreciated and a nice touch!

We stayed here for 5 nights end of June 2014 and overall loved it. Lots to do for our 2 year old boy. It's all set up for kids.

3-4 swimming pools, slides, play areas, entertainment etc.

We are from England, but the general guests are from Germany or Scandinavia. Not an issue for us as we wanted to feel as though abroad, but something to think about next time so that the mix is a bit more balanced (dare I say it more Brits?!)

The Privelege apartment is nice with Hammock and sunbeds etc.

Food Buffet is fairly good although not amazing.

Hotel needs to sort out WIFI as felt as though it was narrowband / dial up at times.

2 minute walk to beach and all the shops on the main road.

Overall, we liked it here and would come back again.

Room Tip: The Privelege Suites have a mini garden - they are on the ground floor.

We stayed at the viva blue thanks to a complimentary upgrade from another viva hotel. All in all a good hotel and friendly staff. The food is great from the buffet style for breakfast and dinner. There is a choice of two restaurants for lunch which is nice to be waited on for a change during an all inclusive holiday. There was four of us my wife and our two girls 4 and 3. The staff were great with all the children. The kids club was also very good and the mini disco in the evening with Bufo. The entertainment staff also catered for the children while the evening entertainment was on by providing small chairs at the stage and doing face painting. Also worth a mention is the pool area which is set out very well with the pools, play park all built around the pool bar and toilets.

Got lucky with great weather in early April, short cycling break with younger son, we took a one bedroom apartment. The apartment was great, makes a big difference to have a small kitchenette rather than having to rely on restaurants all the time. The cycling facilities at the hotel were great and the staff were faultless. Would happily return.

We had a room with a nice big balcony (20 sqm) overlooking the pool area. Big plus was jacuzzi on balcony. Breakfast is very good, lot's of different choices. Lunch is overcrowded, and people would have to wait in line. Quality of salads was mediocre. Pools are nice and big, including splash pools for small children. They are freezing cold, probably about 15 degrees celcius in the morning. When it's sunny, the temperature rises a bit, but still cold as hell. Noisy shows every night which is great for adults, not so great for small children trying to sleep. Hotel is very clean. Wifi works ok in hotel room. Not sure if I'll return, but it was a nice stay.

Last night me and my family came home after spending a week in Mallorca. We booked this hotel because it had the best ratings on a Fritidsresor (Swedish leisure travel agency under TUI). The staff were friendly and the rooms were clean, but our hotel room was in the 4th block, as far as you could come from the reception. Luckily, we had pool view. We didn't have all inclusive (do not take all inclusive, there are so many good restaurants close to the hotel) but we tried the hotel food and it was ok.

The hotel was good, but my overall impression is affected by the bad weather we had (it hailed once) and I would like to go back some time when the weather is better.

The hotel is great for kids (2-9 years). The splashing pool with the pirateship and waterslides is not deep at all, so the kids do not have to know how to swim to be able to run around and play there. There are sunbeds rigth next to the splashingpool. The playground behind is also great, a little dirty from soda and ice cream etc. There were also a small playground by the poolcafe for kids (1-2 years) that were ok, but also dirty and sticky from ice cream etc. The kids entertainment staff were great and there were alot of activities for the kids during the day. The reception staff were nice, but if you had a complaint they tried to turn it around so it would be your own fault. They dont take responsibility at all, if you are in trouble, you are on your own. But they will tell you that with a nice smile. Our advice is if you are right, be tough!
The waiters were nice, some of them seemed very stressed out. The food is expensive and so are the souvenirs in Alcudia. The beach is close and very clean and well organized regarding sunbeds etc. You feel very safe at the beach with lifeguards and all. Take-away food from a Viva hotel restaurant right by the beach as well. The ocean is warmer than the pool at Viva Blue - a very cold pool. The Viva Blue is a quiet and calm place for families, no stress and not crouded at all - even when it is fully booked.

Room Tip: The hotel is only partly renovated so we requested a newly renovated room, not on the ground floor...

Dear Guest,
Thank you for choosing Viva Blue Hotel for your recent stay and taking out the time to share your experience on Tripadvisor. Your fantastic compliments have been passed on to the staff and they extend their gratitude for appreciating their efforts.

Regarding the issue of low temperature of the pool, I must inform you that we have a biomass boiler in order to heat the 25mt. semi-olympic pool, the chill out pool and the splashing pool with the pirateship. We can maintain temperatures at 26º Celsius daily because every night we covered the pools with thermal blankets. The splashing pool with the pirateship can be maintained at 23º Celsius because we cannot cover it with thermal blankets. At this time of the year the see temperature varies between 17º and 19º Celsius.
One of the factors that differentiate us from the competitors is precisely to keep the pools temperatures pleasant.
We hope this explanation have been satisfactory and we look forward to welcoming you back in your next visit to the island.
