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. It's just 200m from the hotel. 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.

Late summer holiday
Just returned from a week at the Vista Badia. We travelled with my sister & her partner. Weather mixed with a few days of cloud & rain. Didnt spoil the fun though. Overall, lovely hotel. Great staff and food. Pool & grounds spotlessly clean. Our room on the 3rd floor, basic & clean, but 'tired' shall we say. No issue with sun bed availability at this time of year. Can imagine the pool being too packed in the height of summer. The 'famous' blue ball everyone mentions in the pool, was great fun for all ages. Buffet style food, particularly the breakfasts, was great. Live cooking area was really great, omelettes in the morning and a good variety of meat & fish in the evenings. The huge prawns we had one evening were fantastic ! Nice, simple, poolside buffet for lunch. Animation team worked hard during the day and into the evening. As people have mentioned before, the evening entertainment was not 'West End' but was fun and after a few drinks, we'd get up for a dance and joined in on the club dances at the end. Got to know a few of the bar staff who were generally a good laugh & friendly. Recommend the 'La Bumba's' (chocolate milk & brandy) Lovely, white sand beach 5 mins walk away. On a cloudy day we walked into the next resort, Cala Millor, which was very nice and a change of scenery. Just a quick mention to the lifeguards on duty at the pool, who do / did a fantastic job.More
Second visit to Vista Badia.
Returned yesterday from this excellent hotel. Stayed self catering and everything you could need was provided including a bottle of champagne in the fridge. Had a slight issue with the shower which was sorted in minutes. Had a problem with my transfer being late but was resolved by the superb reception staff contacting them. Definitely a family place and never had a problem getting a sun bed at any time of day.More
Beautiful hotel BUT
We booked this hotel a few weeks before our departure and went directly through the hotel website to reserve our room . I asked for a first floor room with a pool view and was advised that it was not possible to have sea/pool view but that we would have front and side views fro our apartment. On arrival we were allocated a third floor room which had a balcony with side views. The view was of the huge car park and the hotel service area and also the neighbouring hotels. The sea was no where to be seen. The car park is also the drop off/ pick up point for all coaches bringing guests to the hotel. It is a constant stream between the coaches and the deliveries to the hotel. On the first night we were there the bin lorries arrived at 11pm and proceeded to empty the bins then the next one would arrive to empty the bins containing glass bottles. This happened every night of our stay. This was not what we had anticipated when we booked our stay. We also did not anticipate our room being right next to the lift and the maid station so every morning at an unearthly hour the procession of trollies were brought up in the lift and dragged out into the corridor so that put pay to any thoughts of a lie in !! We also had an issue when we came back to our room after a day at the beach and discovered that there was no water to have a shower. I contacted reception and was told that the hotel had a problem and the water was off completely. After waiting an hour it did eventually come back on again but this is not the experience you expect to have in a four star hotel. ( The television also does not work when it rains... not sure why not but there it is ) On the plus side the reception staff are very helpful and friendly the amenities such as pool, gym and entertainment are extremely good. The hotel is spotlessly clean and is very impressive when you first arrive. There is lots to do if you are travelling with young children with kids club and shows on an evening. The pool during the day is a hive of activity with water polo, aqua gym (which is very entertaining to watch/ take part in) There are huge amounts of sun beds which are available... there is a no reservation notice up but inevitably people do put towels on the bed and disappear. This wasn't an issue for us as we still managed to find two well situated beds. We stayed self catering and did have to buy cups/ bowels as the ones provided were a bit on the small side. There is a huge Carrefour hypermarket ten minutes walk away which we visited regularly, it's got everything you can possibly need and all at reasonable prices. Sa Coma itself is a hive of activity lots of restaurants and pubs and interesting shops. There's a lovely little harbour if you go in one direction and then the town of Cala Millor if you go in the other. Cala Millor is a beautiful place with lots of places to shop and eat. The walk from Sa Coma to Cala Millor takes about 30 minutes but you can get a taxi for 8 euros or take the little train which is 4.50 euros return trip per person . The beach front is beautiful with lovely clean sand. The sun beds are a rip off as they charge for the beds and the umbrella 16euros so this could be expensive if your going every day. The Protur group of hotels are very impressive, there are several neighbouring the Vista Badia which you can use the facilities if you want to pay to go the spa as we did. Overall we had a lovely holiday and will definitely go back to Protur but not the Vista Badia. The Playa Cala Millor is our next port of call so 2018 here we come 😀More
Excellent complex & location
Just back from 7 days at this venue with wife & 18 year old daughter. Blessed by mainly sunny weather throughout week, with only one day where it it poured down for an hour or so but sun followed to quickly dry everywhere out. Reception staff very friendly and helpful from the start, explaining all about facilities and how to make best use of their services. Stayed in room 323,which was a Select apartment with larger balcony, with sea view and view over the pools, and benefit of own sunbeds and tables & chairs on balcony. The rooms were well furnished with plenty storage space for clothes. Fully stocked with all requirements for anyone wanting to go self catering, although we were all inclusive, and were greeted with complimentary bottle of wine and flowers on arrival. The pools were kept spotless throughout stay and there was always plenty of sunbeds & parasols available (still had the usual people who had to have towels out by silly o'clock) and very relaxed atmosphere around pools. There are general shopping facilities literally just outside complex, and beach which is fabulous soft sand and long promenade has cafe and toilet facilities is within an easy 5 minute walk. Overall we had a fantastic 7 days and only minor complaints relate to poor adult evening entertainment (nothing new on this type of complex) and although rooms kept generally clean throughout the bath was hardly cleaned during our stay (apart from by us) and was so engrained should really be replaced. Meals are generally buffet style although there is a really good Italian a la carte restaurant, and it is possible to book into all of the complexs many restaurants via reception in advance. Nevertheless we would heartily recommend this venue to couples and families everywhere. More
As a family of 4 we were looking for a fun holiday and that is what we got. No frills just fun. We had a 1 bed apartment on the top floor and still managed to get woken by the noisy cleaners 🙁 the apartment was spacious and had a lovely balcony overlooking the pool. We were AI but it wasn't AI there were charges for branded drinks, deposit for beach towels, branded ice creams etc. I do not expect this. The food was good no queuing for a table but there was alot of rude guests around the food. We were also very disappointed to only get in two other restaurants on site because of queuing, I find this system very old fashioned. The beer was great Estrella on tap. Now I've read alot of reviews on this hotel and I massively disagree about the sunbeds no matter what time you get up you could always get a bed. We went to la reserva and yes there is only two slides but it was lovely to have space in the pool and a swim up bar. The pool at the hotel is not big enough and there is a very small area around the big bubble for 6 year old to stand up, its not very suitable for children. The entertainment staff were fab and worked very hard with our girls. You can use the facilities' of the other hotels in the complex but you cannot get a drink or food. Still lots of activities available golf, bike hire, la paradise park, mini golf, boats, tennis, squash. Sa coma beach is lovely and the sea is stunning. The area around it is dirty and very run down. Some of the bars were nice but very British. It's a good base to see Majorca, we had several days out including a trip to pollenca old town which was a highlight.More
