This place is right next to a national park, while the wide, sandy beach is less than a 5-minute walk away. And it’s not much further to Sa Coma’s bars, shops and restaurants.

Just got back home after a 11 night stay! Hotel was immaculate throughout the duration of our stay, and regularly changed the bed sheets and towels. The complex is great with many things to do, with plenty of bars and restaurants within the main Sa Coma area. Cala Millor is a 15 minute walk from the hotel, as there is also nice bars and restaurants. The big ball within the swimming pool was popular with all the kids, including the grown ups and also a variety of games and entertainment throughout the day including volleyball and water polo.
The first 3 days weren't so great as someone decided to go to the toilet whilst in the pool, however my 4 out of 5 rating isn't because of this as it was out of the staffs control. So the pool was closed for a period of time, but re-opened the next day.
You will loved Ahmed with his birdie whistling which the kids loved, and he was a very attentive waiter he ensured your glass was never empty! All the bar staff were great and nothing was ever too much trouble.
The entertainment staff Wouter, Sylwana, Klaudia, Marta were all fantastic including the 1 or 2 new guys that turned up on my 2nd to last day! Brilliant with the kids, and they all enjoyed the kids club. Night entertainment was great overall with a variety of acts and shows, however their was a couple of dodgy ones, however this is down to personal preference and opinion.
We managed to go to the Country Grill, Greek, Indian, and the Asian restaurant although the system used annoyed me. Unless you're in a select room you have to queue up from around 7:45 to get a reservation, baring in mind the machine doesn't work until 8:30. 45 Minutes wait to ensure you can get in a restaurant, however we could never get into the Italian restaurant. I saw one person use just one card and booked several restaurants because he wasn't sure exactly what he fancied to eat later that night, so that took up reservations. Also, some people had between 5-7 cards to book several tables, so bare this in mind.
If you're in a select room you can however book these restaurants the night before.
Overall, a lovely holiday in a great hotel!More
Stayed at hotel with my teenage daughter for a girlie break whilst husband and boys on a football trip. Was impressed by the hotel , facilities, cleanliness and staff during our stay. In fact could not find a fault at all. Booked a select apartment which had a pool view and sun beds on balcony, also ability to reserve Resturant bookings the night before. Had a welcome bottle of wine on arrival and flowers in the room which was a nice touch. We arrived late and was provided with a light snack and drink on arrival. The check in was simple and reception staff welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. The food in the buffet Resturant was of excellent quality with plenty of choice. We ate at the la Fontana Italian Resturant which was relaxing and pleasant,and the country grill Mexican themed Resturant which was again very nice. The pool area was spacious with plenty of sunbeds and umberella at any time of day. The pool bar was excellent with cheerful waiters and a good choice of drinks. The evening entertainment was typical hotel standard which was fine. The hotel is a short stroll to the lovely beach of Sa coma and there is a bus stop directly outside the hotel which provides easy access to the other resorts in the area. The resort itself mainly caters for families and older couples with a relaxed atmosphere ,lots of restaurants and souvenir shops. Overall an excellent family hotel. Would definitely return. Thank you staff of Protur Vista Badia for a lovely holiday xMore
best hotel group we have visited in europe
the hotel is placed in a 'village' like area of other Protur hotels. The location was good as only a 5min stroll to the beach (even with a push chair and 5yr old). sa Coma has the normal 'tat' shops around where the 5yr old begs for a light up ball or bag, hair clips etc, but it is a medium sized and nice looking resort. There are even some small fashion outlets that have decent looking clothes for sale. No large groups of guys or gals having a 'drunken brits abroad' binge holiday.
The beach is long, sandy (not shingle) family friendly and for a meagre 15euros?!? you get a 2 beds and a parasol - better to buy a big umbrella from a 'tat' store for 7 euros and use that all week with the beach towels supplied free by Protur on arrival!
The hotel is a little older than the Safari - however we were glad we chose the Vista Badia as it feels roomier with a lesser occupancy. I can imagine the Safari being rammed in the high season. The pool is fab with a bouncy inflatable dome slide that the kids and adults love. The kids club was also very good with an enthusiastic team of 'animacian' staff. Generally all staff were polite, helpful and informative.
The best bit of Protur is the facilities - of which are scattered throughout the village including tennis, farm, cycling, archery, volley ball, golf, football court, restaurants, park (with trampolines, climbing frames, swings, kiddies swimming slide pool), mini golf, and a mini boat ride for kids. Outside of Centre parcs and butlins I've not known anything as plentiful as this. By the way strangely for a buffet restaurant the food was fantastic... apart from the bread - which never tastes the same outside of Blighty.
Minor faults -
1. you cannot use the 'all inclusive' for the other Protur hotels when wandering around, you can go in there but you have to pay for the drinks. Would be nice even if just the soft drinks were inclusive in any of the hotels when having a wander.
2. The lifts are tiny with just enough room for a pushchair or buggy.
However, apart from the Riu resort in Mexico Playacar - this has been the most all-encompassing hotel we've stayed at. Word to the wise, book direct with them as you will save money and have the option of a select room which have very large balconies.More
Nothing short of fabulous! We had an easy late night check in where they presented us with a buffet outside of serving hours. The room was spacious, clean, well equipped and complimentary flower arrangement and bottle of sparkly with 2 flutes. Room 241 was a very quiet pool facing room with the larger balcony with sun beds.
The entertainment crew were simply fantastic with all their energy and scheduled events for us all to enjoy. Klaudia was my son's favourite, Carlton has Down's Syndrome and was made to feel very welcome by all that met him. Carlton loved his holiday which is unusual as he normally wants to stay at home but he has already agreed to return next year.
We met some fabulous people whilst at the hotel and they really did make our holiday experience a better one than normal. The bar staff were fun to be around, always smiling and ready to serve that much welcomed cold drink. The catering staff in the restaurant were so efficient in clearing and setting the tables, food was readily available and plenty of choice and quantity. We visited the Italian at the Safari Park hotel which was a nice change.
The evening entertainment was actually quite good, the children's show seemed to entertain the kids and they nearly all got involved with the dancing etc. The adult shows were okay and the team worked very hard in keeping us entertained, we enjoyed most.
All in all we had an excellent holiday in a truly rated 4 star hotel and was by far our best holiday to date, excellent food, excellent rooms, excellent staff, excellent location and all round excellent holiday.More

From start to finish this holiday was a very good experience.
On arrival (very early in the morning) we were greeted by happy reception staff, who explained everything to us and directed us to our room on the third floor. The room over looked the pool and was very big and clean.
The food was a great selection of world wide foods. I'm a picky eater and so often ate out as I didn't not enjoy most of the food available, breakfast was the best out in my opinion, I always ate and enjoyed this.
Entertainment was good. Lots of variety and a lot of effort put in by the staff and other acts. special shout out to Martha and Claudia who are absolutely gold and do a fantastic job...
Bar staff especially Rafa, Christian and akmed are fantastic, always happy to help and go over and beyond to make sure you are satisfied with your service.. Lovely bunch of men.
The pool was big and has an inflatable that the children loves bouncing on, this is the only reason why my review does not have a 5star... On 3 occasions the pool was shut off due to children having accidents, this spoils it for the rest of the visitors as once the pool is off, no1 can go back in for 8-10 hours.. That's my only grumble.
Overall it was a great experience. We have already discussed returning and that's something we intend to do next year or the year after...More
