Reviewed 20 April 2009

We had a great week on holiday at Viva hotel. rooms are a good enough size but we only had a baby with us, it might be tight with toddlers. Facilities very clean and the staff very friendly. Outdoor pool lovely but too cold to swim in April, Indoor pool was nice but busy with children most of the time. Palmanova is a lovely resort and would definately go back, Palma city was also lovely and well worth a visit too. The hotel is very focused on children from 5 upwards might not be ideal for people with out children. ONe small point we stayed 7 nights and we wanted a late check out on the last day and we had to pay €18, it was not much money wise but after paying a lot for the week

this hotel was the best hotel i have ever stayed in. i flew from liverpool to majorca we booked self catering. when we got to the hotel we were delighted when we saw the recepition. it was so clean.
the the staff were very helpful and very friendly. the bedroom was even better. it had everything in it. it even had things you didn't expect like the cuttlery and pots and pans. But they didn't have an electric kettle which would have been handy.
the swimming pool was great but the indoor pool was to small. the childrens pool was great it had water slides and a big bucket that pured water on you. this was a great holiday i would like to come here again. and would recommed the hotel to a friend or a family.

The facilities and staff were excellent. The other traveler reviews were very helpful. We had a great time and my 9 year old enjoyed the pools and the childrens activities.

On arrival we were greeted by the friendly reception staff who spoke exellent English, we booked in with no problems. The Hotel looks fabulous its modern with beautifull decor, plants, gardens and facilities, looks better than a 4*. We had a ground floor apartment with patio doors leading on to our own garden leading on to the pool side. The apartment was excellent 10/10 no problems at all, very clean imaculate with every thing you required. There is no need for a kettle as previous people commented, just use the microwave. The Indoor swimming pool was a peace haven and very pleasant and lots of people enjoying the gym. The restaurant was lovely, plenty to choose from at breakfast and economically priced for the evenging buffet 11 Euros for adults. We felt we were very well looked after. There is an easy walk to the beach passing lots of bars, restaurants and shops. The beach is a lovely sandy bay with a lovely promanade to walk along. All in all we thougth it was excellent, good value for money ,good for both families and couples and would happily recommend it to others or book again ourselves.

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.

Reviewed 25 February 2009

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.
