“Second visit, coming back next year for sure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

Love this place. We are a family with two children (6&4) and it is ideal.

The food is amazing and we had our monies worth of all inclusive with the drinks being branded and strong along with the usual local drinks available. Something for everyone every night.

The show team and staff clearly work hard and still had time for anything you wanted.

Quiet rooms considering how full the hotel was (w/c 21st sept) sun beds were readily available.

Stayed for a week and it was an excellent place to stay. Very clean, and the staff were very helpful. Plenty of pools to choose from - right through from young children to a private pool for adults with double beds rather than loungers to lie on. Plenty of normal loungers around the other pools, and no problem getting them. Shows every evening, after the children's entertainment, also lot of activities during the week. Food was great and we loved the cocktails which were around 5 euros each. Supermarket next door but the BIP supermarket down the round is cheaper. Close to everything including the beach and the seafront shops. The room was great - microwave, cooker, toaster, hob, fridge, hairdryer etc and we had our own private patio at the rear which was pretty big and it had comfortable sofa and chair and a separate dining table and chairs. We would definitely go back again - still singing the chocolate song lol

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms either have a view of the pool or a private patio area

Went for a week AI and had a great time. We have stayed at the Viva Hotels before and we were not disappointed with this one. The rooms were excellent, clean and large enough for a family of 4. We were just a couple so plenty space for the 2 of us.
On our arrival we got towels for the pool and key for the safety deposit box in the room, these are paid for at check in. The staff treated all guests as if they were special, they worked some hours but still always had smile on their faces.
I would recommend this hotel for couples and families alike.

Just 20 minutes by taxi from the airport, check in was quick and easy. Our room, a standard one had a double bed room, with space for a single bed for our toddler, a bathroom, lounge/kitchen/dinner and a balcony overlooking the middle of the hotel (pool, stage etc). It was very clean. We stayed on an all inclusive basis, with breakfast and dinner fairly standard holiday buffets of good quality, lunch was a la carte and with plenty on offer my highlight. The drinks on at AI were plentiful and not restricted to local only. We did almost no queueing.

The pools (4 outside) were excellent, our nearly 3 year old loved the kids pool with pirate ship and 9 slides! There was always sun beds available. My only criticism of the whole holiday was the smoking around the childrens pool that was ignored but the staff even with signs up clearly saying no smoking. I don't like the fact many parents smoked over their children but I really disliked them smoking over mine.

The evening was dominated by childrens entertainment which was enjoyed by all of them! The girls that provided this were energetic and made the kids evenings, our son didn't join them by day but I'm sure they were equally good then as well.

We don't generally return to the same place but this holiday was so hassle free we may well be tempted in early summer next year!

We stayed here 23rd to 31st Aug and fell in love with the place! It took minutes to check in and when we got to our room we had big smiles on our faces! We had one of the royal terrace apartments on the top floor - wow. It was clean and beautifully laid out. It was me, my fiancé and our 3 year old son and it was perfect. Our son slept in the bedroom and myself and my fiancé slept on the sofa bed in the living room which was no problem, very comfy! There was a modern kitchen area which we never used as we were all inclusive. Then up the stairs in the apartment to our own private terrace complete with jacuzzi and Bali bed! The hotel itself was very well laid out and was completely orientated towards children, which was just what we were looking for. Our son spent most of the holiday in the pirate kids pool and the playground, both of which were fantastic. The only thing I would say about the pool was that it would have been nice to have been heated, also there was a couple of pieces of equipment in the playground that needed replaced due to being broken, but didn't stop our son having fun! The food was delicious and extremely varied, we eat like kings every day. I loved that the glass bottle of coke with dinner were included in the all inclusive, and the jack Daniels for the evening entertainment! The only issue we had was after our 1st night, we went to go to bed and realised the cleaners had taken our duvet that we were using for the sofa bed! It was 1130pm, I phoned reception and she was very helpful, and within 20 minutes the manager came to our door with a brand new duvet still in the packaging! Overall a lovely hotel that gave us all a 1st class holiday, would love to return!

Room Tip: Royal terrace apartment, may be more expensive but 100% worth it. All the royal terrace room overloo...

Great for families with small children, patio rooms on ground floor great with big sunbeds and table with chairs. Nice bathrooms, separate bedroom and living room. Working kitchenette. Pool area, activities and entertainment very nice. Did not have all inclusive but hotel restaurant served good food. Free self service laundry.

We stayed at the Viva this year from 21st-31st August on an All Inclusive basis. Walking into the hotel you can see immediately it is beautiful and well maintained and looks amazing. The grounds and décor are all fantastic and it is spacial with lots of lift/stair access to all the different levels. It took us about 5 minutes to get checked in and the reception staff were friendly and helpful. The room was away from the entertainment area overlooking the car park but there were still 4 different exit routes (stairs & lifts) to get to the dining room/pool and bar all accessible within a couple of minutes depending which one you needed. The rooms are cleaned 5 days of the week and there are hotel towels available so you needn't bother taking your own which we did and took up space un necessarily! We checked in at 11.10am and were at the pool by 11.20 with loungers available. We had a 2 year old and 5 year old with us who absolutely loved the pool/play areas and it was the 1st holiday we've let our 5 year old just go off to the stage/entertainment bit/park or middle size pool (chest height for a 5 year old) without worrying as you could easily see him from most angles or know where he was depending on what the kids club were doing - the kids club entertainers were amazing, they treat all the kids equally and even let our 2 year old play the mini games etc even though the age starts from 4 - she loved being part of it! The girls absolutely earned their money working from early morning until late and keeping the kids AND adults busy. There are exercise classes, aqua aerobics and pool games for all ages.

We could not believe the variety of the food on offer from ordering fresh from the menu at lunch time or going to the buffet which also had 'show cooking' where the chef made it for you on request. We never had a bad meal and there was always a wide variety and plenty of it! The drinks come in large or small and there is no question if you want to take 5 or 6 away unlike some hotels which limit you to one or 2 per person. The alcoholic beverages were also a positive point - passionfruit cocktails in the hot weather for a little treat are a must!!

The evening entertainment starts off with the kids discos and handing out certificates/t-shirt paintings/medals and adult games medals then follows with a different show each night from about 9.15pm. When the show starts the entertainers are usually around to do things with the kids such as make bracelets, watch a movie inside or paint faces which is nice so you can relax and enjoy the show!! After the show the entertainers get the kids back up to dance the club songs and then that finishes about 10.30pm but the bar is open til midnight and they hang about chatting to the kids and parents.

We didn't really feel the need to venture out because of the standard of the hotel being so good but on a couple of days we went to he beach and just ordered take away food to take with us which they make for you and put in sealed containers, that and a few bottles of water and you needn't spend any money!

We did the glass bottom boat which coz about 40 euros for the 4 of us and lasted 2 hours. You get the chance to jump off and swim half way so take a snorkel and you'll see some lovely fish!

We went to the western water park for one day which was about a 20minute walk from the hotel, or you get free travel when you buy tickets from a ticket office. I will say don't bother hiring the rings - there are plenty available on the rides and we didn't really use ours much so wasted the money hiring them. Also TAKE YOUR OWN FOOD!! We left before the takeaway service started at he hotel so didn't get a packed lunch and it cost us 29 euros for 2 hamburgers and chips and 2 kids hot dog meals and that was without drinks! (Our fault for not making a packed lunch though).

Overall, this is the best holiday we have had together as a family. It cost a bit more than we usually spend but in hindsight was worth every penny and just goes to show you get what you pay for. Anyone who leaves a bad review for this place needs to take a closer look at what they're complaining about as every holiday will have its minor flaws but even though we didn't encounter any, I know they would have been dealt with efficiently and apologetically. They get 5 out of 5 from us and we will most definitely be returning to a Viva hotel next year :)

Room Tip: The rooms facing the entertainment will probably be the noisiest with the bar not closing until midn...
