Comments:  I stayed at Viva Blue for a week, whilst undertaking an endurance cycling challenge in Mallorca. I stayed in one of their triathlon apartments, and was impressed by the quality of the equipment and the overall cleanliness, styling and comfort of the apartment. Each morning and evening, I ate at the hotel, and the food was superb. Fresh, varied and always plenty of choice. Great service from the kitchen and waiting staff too. The spa, although fairly small, is great for post-ride relaxation, and has the basics such as sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, and various different spa showers. I made great use of it! The cycling room is secure, well equipped and makes riding out from the hotel simple and easy. I'd fully recommend using Viva Blue as a base for a triathlon or cycling holiday. Your stay will be relaxing and easy, and all your needs well catered to. It would also be a great place for children and families, and is only a few yards from the beautiful beach.

Comments:  I've been in this hotel several times and this is one of the best ever! We stayed here with a group of Belgian cyclists, and we were all very happy! Of course we'll repeat again next year! The very large rooms are the perfect place to stay, very clean, spacious and all comfort is available. The food in the restaurant is very high level. Different things to choose from, all equal in quality and taste! And every day something new. It's a pleasure going to breakfast or dinner here! The facilities are perfect! Different pools to choose from, and also a very cosy wellness with jacuzzi and sauna. I really enjoyed my stay in this hotel, thanks to the friendly staff!

Comments:  Just had five nights at this great hotel. My son and I are cyclists and didn't realised when we booked it that it was so fantastic for cyclists. The basements are all geared up to store,repair and clean bikes. There's even a complementary food station for cyclists which was just great. It's in a wonderful position to get to all the best routes on the island. Really lovely and clean, absolutely great staff and the food is just perfect for serious cyclists. There were families there too having a great time, heated pool,play areas,gym etc.Will definitely be back to this wonderful find. Big thank you to Mateu for posting my jacket home to me after leaving it in the wardrobe. Pretty good service.

Comments:  Came here on a cycling holiday in March, and the facilities for cyclists are amazing. They have a cycling garage to keep the bikes locked up in, and racks to clean the bikes after each ride. You need to bring your own cleaning products, but I just used the high pressure water hose, and then wiped down the chain and bike using cloths provided. They also provide a cyclists' snack for you to either take with you on your ride, or have after the ride. There's also a small bike items shop on site, and a bike rental place, where they have good quality bikes. This is the early(ish) season for cyclists, and I wouldn't come here for any other reason, although in the warmer months it'd also be great for families, as the facilities are well catered for children too. There's only one buffet restaurant, with generally very good food. Great choices of vegetables and salads. Would like to see more options of meats, and butter and cream for the low carb crowd. Good selection of wines.

Comments:  just came back from a long weekend at this hotel- it's main strength is its staff- nothing too much of a problem, always willing to please and always had a smile. They even let us use the spa (after we had checked out) for a post-ride unwind/shower whilst we waited for our evening flight. friendly and helpful staff in the restaurant and bar. Room was enormous, lovely apartment with own kitchen, lounge, garden area with sunloungers, outside dining area, hammock, bathroom (with lovely waterfall shower) and separate bedroom. Very clean. everything you will ever need for a triathlon training camp on site at the hotel, cycling hire/storage shop, 24 hour gym, beach a 3 minute walk from the hotel for great open water swims, sailfish demo shop onsite. Spa was great to unwind after a long ride/run/swim. Didnt have time to use them but the adult swimming pool and leisure pool looked lovely. there was even a (free, i think) yoga class in the afternoons! I'm probably forgetting loads of other facilities- believe me, everything you'd ever need was there. We weren't aware that you needed to book the 25m pool for use (you can't just turn up and swim) - there is somewhat limited availability, but we did get a few chances to use this pool during our stay so nothing major. buffet range of food to please everyone- the fussy, the healthy, the unhealthy, the inbetween, the intolerant, the allergic and the sports people. So much choice and all delicious. We were going to go elsewhere for dinner on one of the nights but decided the food at the hotel was too good to miss. our group was quite large and a table was
