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.

Good but pool too deep
Party of 8, with 4 small children, board was self catering. Very good in most aspects especially cleanliness, children's entertainment and air conditioning, kitchen facilities were enough making simple meals. The only problems were the main pool was too deep even at the shallow end, sunbeds were available at the pool but to get ones at the front you needed to be up at 6.30am. Plus the pool had to be closed on occasions to be cleaned. WIFI was awful if it worked at all. We did find that some nights the entertainment was extra loud, but it was finished by 11.30. We went to the beach each day, as the pool was too deep, which was a short walk away, it was clean, had a lifeguard and plenty of sunbeds. We managed to make the kids a few simple dinners in the rooms and we brought takeaway from a different restaurant when we didn't go out. We would stay at another Protur hotel but we like to visit different places so would not revisit her.More

Good value self catering apartment
We were a party of 2 adults with 2 teenagers and found the apartment spacious, clean and well maintained. Cleaned (with towel change) 5 times per week, linen changed twice per week. The whole apart hotel was clean and well maintained with lovely staff. Very efficient air conditioning in main living area and bedroom area. Beds were firm but comfortable and there was plenty of storage space for clothes etc. kitchen area was very small but apart from the kettle, microwave and fridge we didn't really use it for more than making a snack. The Eroski supermarket round the corner sold everything we needed at very cheap prices. Saved a fortune on ice creams bought from there instead of in the hotel. The pool complex and sunbathing terrace are huge. Plenty of sun beds and parasols but you need to be up early if you want several together. The cleanliness of the pool was questionable with several incidents involving floating poo in the pool following which the pool wasn't drained but extra chemicals added. There was one lifeguard the first week and a second one joined him during our second week after a couple of accidents pool side (May have been a coincidence). The entertainment is on the poor side. Not much for teenagers to do and the evening entertainment was poor. The resort itself is quite quiet with people seeming to stay in their hotels. SIllot seemed more lively in the evenings than Sa Coma and worth the walk along the seafront. The resort seems safe and family driven, no large gangs of rowdy youths. Some very good restaurants with a variety of food at reasonable prices. The beach was clean and there were lifeguards watching the sea and beach. This was a good value self catering holiday.More
Nice hotel, but could be better.
We stayed at the Vista Badia as a family of four (2 adults and two children aged 13 and 7) at the beginning of August. This is generally a good hotel with lots of positives but there are a few small things which could have been better. The animation team were excellent and both children were able to participate in lots of different activities. We liked that there were activities for teenagers as well as the smaller children. Our cleaner was great and really friendly; my little girl loved that she left her teddy and pyjamas sitting neatly on her pillow. There weren't any problems with sunbeds and we actually went to the beach one morning and returned to find plenty of sunbeds available at one o'clock in the afternoon! On the downside, we were a little disappointed to not be given a room with a pool view as we had e-mailed the hotel several months before to request one. As people have mentioned in previous reviews there were some issued with the pool having to be closed four times. Admittedly this was not the hotel's fault; however, they did not appear to do anything to try and solve the situation. I spoke to the receptionists about it and they simply said that there was nothing they could do if they didn't know who was causing the problem. It did slightly ruin the end of our holiday as it actually happened on our last day for the fourth time. Another area that really needs to be improved is the Wi-Fi. You can only access it in reception and even then the signal was really poor. On several occasions you could not even connect at all! As I have said this hotel has lots of positives; however, there are things which they do need to do to improve. I would not say that this is a Platinum hotel, more a three star.More

Great place to stay
Stayed for the third time in 3 years returning last week. This is a family friendly hotel with very good facilities and friendly / efficient staff across all areas (reception, bar staff, entertainment and cleaning ladies). On each occasion we stayed in a Select room which gives you a pool view with a large balcony, cleaning every day, free pool towels changed every 2 days and preferential booking for the themed restaurants. Well worth the small extra charge but they are becoming increasingly popular so you need to book early. The apartments are well appointed but as other reviewers have stated, not suitable for cooking full meals. That said there are a lot of good and reasonably priced restaurants nearby. The hotel has made a real effort to improve the sun bed situation in the last couple of years. There are now plenty available but slight problem with the number and quality of umbrellas. I would suggest you check yours works before you need to use it. Only slight gripe is with the themed restaurant booking especially if you are looking to use Protur Points. We booked twice using the points and on both occasions the restaurant had no record of our booking when we arrived. No one seems to understand how to book them and there appears to be no central booking system despite them all being under the Protur banner. Overall though, definitely recommended and would return again. More
We stayed at the Vista Badia a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children aged 12 and 10) We had stayed in a Protur hotel before in Cala Bona, and fancied Sa Coma. The hotel is clean and modern, the rooms were cleaned 5 days a week and our cleaner was lovely. The hotel staff were polite. The entertainment team work very hard and are full of energy, and I must comment on a review I've read on here insulting a kids club staff as a club 18-30 rep is uncalled for!! My children loved every minute of their holiday and the energy and enthusiasm of the kids club reps is a reason why. We did not eat at the hotel as we were self catering, but spoke to other guests who said the food was very good. We ate at JJ's and Kenna's most nights, both very good. The sun beds were good and although the best ones were taken by 8, you could still find beds at 9. The pool was a nice size, but the shallow end was a little too deep which was a shame. There are different nationalities staying here, but it was a nice mix. Ive read reviews about the hotel moaning about the german guests being rude but , there were also british guests that were loud and left their litter everywhere!! We had a lovely holiday and the only negative was thomsons! The rep was very poor, didn't know anything and provided us with no information on the hotel complex or the resort of sa coma. We have used thomsons ever since we started holidaying abroad and must admit our disappointment. All in all a great holiday, and would return if we holiday in Sa Coma again.More
