We stayed at the Viva Palma Nova apartments for a week in March. We were travelling with a toddler and found the pool area was ideal. Baby pool that she could stand up in. Also play park with trampoline, slide, play house and see saw - where we spent most of our day! Also indoor pool (quite deep) for rainy days. Rooms lovely, not that big and the door right off the corridor so quite noisy as we had to sleep in the living area and had the cot in the bedroom. They only have one bed apartments and studios. Voices echo in corridor and doors slamming with people arriving etc did affect our sleep a bit. All in all spotlessly clean, ideally situated and good facilities. Only thing to stop us going back is the fact that they don't have 2 bed apartments.

We recently returned from a short break at the Viva Palmanova and would definately recommend it to others.

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment, which was spotelssly clean, well maintained (the kitchenette area looked brand new) and had a lovely patio and garden overlooking the pool area. We took the advice of previous reviewers and took our own travel kettle with us to make hot drinks as the absence of a kettle was the only thing that could be faulted really. Everything else was provided - towels, utensils, cups etc, even a teatowel for drying up.

We booked through Medhotels and we thought the hotel represented great value for money. Central location a few minutes from the beach, plenty of free parking spaces outside, little supermarket on site for essentials, and a beautiful pool area - the adults pool in particular was lovely.

Highly recommended.

We stayed from 17th-24th February 2009. Booked direct with Viva hotels, so welcome pack on arrival, Fruit, wine, welcome drink for all of us at the bar. Check in quick, prepaid £280.00 for the pool view apartment for the week, good value. Apartment was good, practical and clean, shower was excellent for a hotel.

Maid service 5 times ,left a couple of euros a day for her, did a lovely job. Facilities were good in the hotel, indoor pool ok,but small, outdoor pools fantastic ( bit chilly- paddling only -but it was Feb!). Kids pool was good fun for them, in summer I imagine it would be fabulous. There is a wonderful looking adults pool area, but with kids in tow, just caught a peek but luxurious beds, jacuzzi and pool etc.

Location good, 3 mins to beach( crystal clear seas) , 2 mins to shops, bars etc. Recommend Mercadona in Son Caliu for shopping. Thoroughly recommend Floridas restaurant & Prince Williams Pub( good value & Family friendly )which is out of the hotel, turn right, down to bottom of the the road, turn left for Floridas, straight on for prince William.Carlos at floridas a real character, good with kids, Kelly at prince williams lovely lady, good to talk to her to get the lowdown on where to go etc.

We had a car for the week, highlights were, Coves D'arta ( fabulous caves), Palma Aquarium ( bit pricey), Port Soller ( Scenic ), Alcudia old town( traditional) plus there is loads more to do!.

Anyway, rambling a bit, so back to the Hotel.....
So here is why it doesnt get 5*. The bar prices were too high, I expect to pay more in a hotel but £3.00 per half a lager is too hefty. Also we would have liked a kettle, so we asked for one. They told me they didnt have any, but they did have an agreement with a local "kettle" company ( is there such a thing!) , and required £16 and £10 deposit. Now really, I went down the road and bought one for 8 euros, so that was a bit of a con!.

So to sum up the Viva, excellent hotel, good facilities, good location, Good Hotel, we will go back again, so have no fears booking this property.

it was absoloutley brilliant been there twice and wouldn't hesitate to go back again. the staff were so helpful and friendly we had a trauma with the travel agences though we had to arrive 2 days late because a member of the party was ill and the travel agences did not ring up to say we were coming so we lost our room. But then the staff were so helpful they found us a free room and were in almost every day to clean it, the hotel is absoloutley spotless.Thepools are amazing all we did was swim and sun bathe. the best holiday we have ever had!!!!!! Hope to be back there soon!!!

We stayed for a week me my grandson and daughter in a self-catering apartment the hotel room was lovely, the room has a microwave, fridge with freezer compartment. No kettle or tea making facilities but didn't matter because we took a travel kettle. There’s a brilliant hair dryer in the bathroom. Good sized television three English channels all news but who cares about television when there’s 5 pools to choose from 3 outdoor pools including the over 18's pool which is great, the beds in there were so comfy plus its got a built in Jacuzzi. Other outdoor pools were a bit chilli but we went in October. Indoor pool is great little small but it was very clean. Jacuzzi in there to Sauna in the changing rooms plus next to the changing rooms a great gym didn't go in it but looked great. The grounds surrounding the pools are lovely with little sculptures dotted around. Restaurant and bar was nice all right prices, entertainment was good. Lobby and Reception was lovely with palm tree through the centre of the room. The shop was all right bit pricey compared to other local spars. Payphones outside. Overall our holiday was lovely and would recommend it to anybody I know.

We stayed for 5 nights at Viva Palmanova and had a great time. The hotel has fantastic facilities, staff very friendly and helpful. Only a short walk to the beach. My 2 yr old son loved the daily entertainment (which I was surprised still occurred in Sept). We stayed half board and the food was lovely, looked forward to our evening meal, particularly the Japanese themed night! The only disappointment was even though we had an apartment with a kitchen there was no kettle. You have to rent this (and the keys to the safe in the wardrobe) at a weekly rate + deposit for each.

Stayed at Viva Palmanova 17/8-24/8. Booked this because we had previously stayed at a Viva hotel and were very pleased. This time we were even more pleased. The hotel is fantastic. Very impressive reception area with friendly staff. We had an apartment overlooking the pool area which was great. There are four pools - a large deep one with a waterfall flowing into a more shallow pool where you can stand and play ball games etc. Then there was a children's pool with mini waterpark feature of a slide and bucket of water, fountains and another slide. Finally there was a pool just for adults which was amazing. All around the pool are double beds with muslin-type drapes around. They are shaded above by rush screens. At one end of the pool are two jacuzzis and the whole place is so tranquil, it looks like a Roman spa. The pool area is meticulously cleaned every morning, as is the rest of the hotel. There was always an army of cleaners at work. The room was cleaned 6 times out of 7. The areas surrounding the pool are lovely too - lots of trees and greenery. The bar around the pool serves snacks/meals at great prices - unlike some where they rip you off. There is a continuous entertainment programme for both kids and adults and you are welcome to join in anything you choose. My kids aged 11 and 9 absolutely loved it and were never bored. There was also a bouncy castle, table tennis, pool table, football pitch and lots of water games. The hotel is located about a 5 minute walk from a fabulous beach and there is a supermarket within the hotel and plenty of shops, bars, restaurants etc nearby. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone - you will not be disappointed.
