This aparthotel is part of a bigger resort, which gives you loads of dining and sports options.
This hotel overlooks a huge, lagoon pool surrounded by lawns. And in summer, children have a waterpark with slides and a wonky castle. There’s a big choice of restaurants – La Fontana, the Italian one, gets great reviews on TripAdvisor.
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.

The hotel is very nice, the resort has plenty of activities included in the price, and most of all, the staff are magnificent. Our two daughters (9 and 5) were in the pool every day, made occasional use of the Mini Club during the day, but could not miss the Mini Disco, which was well-organised by the in-house entertainment team. The evening entertainment was reasonable, particularly those done by the in-house team, and the bar staff were very good.
The local resort has a few nice restaurants, and the beach is the best we have ever been to.
The best family holiday we have had, and we will definitely be back.More

Protur Vista Badia , Sa Coma
I went with my wife in early September to this hotel with Thomson travel agents. From the moment we got there to the time we left, the place was immaculate. The staff were professional and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The Thomson rep was brilliant. Always checking if everything was OK. We do feel that going there out of school holiday time was beneficial. Reading up on this hotel before we went, we read that the hotel does have a lot of Germans there. So the kids mini disco every night, all the songs were in Spanish or German.More

We visited Vista Badia in July for the 2nd year in a row and the 5th time in total. As ever the facilities were very good. The hotel is in an excellent location, 5-10 minutes from the lovely beach and many restaurants & bars within walking distance for those us not on the AI option.
We've always found the hotel to be very clean and the housekeeping service is excellent. The rooms had been redecorated prior to our visit last year and I'd struggle to find fault with them - maybe the wobbily fridge but that was soon sorted with a stray piece of cardboard.
Wardrobe space described by my wife as 'fine' or in my opinion, 'loads'. We usually request to face east (Towards the beach) and it's always been very pleasant sitting outside of an evening. Aircon great, worked fine, plenty of utensils in the cupboards for cooking if so inclined, but why bother? The Eroski, or hypermarket has a great selection of products from delicious hams to flat screen TVs.
The entertainment is what you would expect nowadays, we never bothered staying there except when there was some live music on. There seemed to be less activities on the animation side this year but that too was not an issue, there's no shortage of things to do if you want. The free bike hire is great, but you take your chances with your ride. 5 of us headed out one day, we got a puncture in Cala Bona but we managed to find a Protur hotel nearby who repaired it for us, and my bike was the bike from hell but that was just the luck of the draw. We have always found the bar staff and reception team to be top drawer. Looking for the free Wi-Fi can be fun, but just switch your mobiles etc off or leave the at home!
We have recommended this hotel to many people and will continue to do so, and I would be happy to come back next year, especially as there will be no World Cup on!More

Can't believe this hotel is a 4* thompson platinum?????
This hotel is defiantly not a 4* hotel,really can't believe its a thompson platinum.we stayed here for a week mid August,the first room we were given was on the ground floor,no view apart from a grass bank,which was fine but the balcony was full of cockroaches and at night time the area was quite dark.i wouldn't usually mind but it was travelling with my toddler,my sister and her two young children.we stayed in this room for a night,then decided to ask to upgrade to a better room,we went the next day to have a look,the "upgraded" room looked exactly the same as the previous room apart from a larger balcony with a 2 sun loungers.we decided not to bother upgrading but asked if we could change room,they were happy enough to let us change to a 1st floor apartment,which we thought would be great,we thought we'd get rid of the cockroach problem,only to find out that when we arrived back that evening the room was infested with ants,they were everywhere!!!we reported to reception and a lady came to sweep them up and sprayed some ant spray,which was fine but during the whole week the ants kept reappearing. The apartments definitely need refurbishing. The staff work really hard,the food is really good too,but I've never stayed in a hotel where the cleaners have two days off a week,I found myself having to sweep the floors in the rooms myself on those days due to the ant problem,wouldn't mind but as you're paying good money to stay in a hotel,why should you need to clean the rooms yourself,at the end of the day you are on holiday! apartments themselves let the hotel down.i have stayed in many 3* hotels that are at a much better standard to this one. I'm honestly not usually a type to complain but I really honestly feel this holiday was not the best :(More

Really good apart hotel
Just returned from 14 nights at the Vista Badia travelling with family. We chose the self catering option which gave us the flexibility we needed. Rooms are very spacious and although the beds are quite hard you get used to them. The bathroom was clean and spacious and the shower was very powerful (something we always rate hotels on!). Hot water sometimes took time to arrive in the morning but we were advised to keep running the water by reception and it worked - but only after about 3 mins of running the tap which kind of goes against the save water by using towels more than once requests. The kitchenette is limited to 2 electric rings, a kettle and toaster and a fridge but you don't really need anything more. The hypermarket close by has lots of 'offertas' so buying food for breakfast and lunch (and drinks) was inexpensive and we ate out every night. Complex is great - sun beds were plentiful, the pool was huge and there were plenty of things to do during the day. Hotel staff were lovely and couldn't do enough for you and although we never ate in the hotel the drinks we bought at the bars were reasonably priced. Good location near the beach and within walking distance of both S'Illot and Cala Millor. For a family holiday in the sun this is an ideal place to go.More
