This hotel lays on plenty for children, including a splash pool and a Thomson Kids’ Club. It’s right by the beach, too.
This place is just a stone’s throw from a golden sandy beach. The shops and restaurants are a 5-minute walk away, and a coastal path takes you over the cliffs to Son Bou.
The main pool gets lots of attention here - it’s big enough for lengths. Children get a Thomson Kids’ Club, too. And the buffet restaurant takes care of meals.

Way above our expectations
I would firstly like to say to everyone wanting to travel here is to ignore all the bad reviews. I had read them all myself before travelling so was a bit dubious but of all the things complained about in the reviews we didn't experience any of these during our stay. The hotel itself is absolutely spotless, constantly throughout our 7 day stay we were forever seeing cleaners around the hotel throughout the whole day. The staff were very friendly and were happy to help wherever they could. The rooms are spacious with plenty of storage. There is a safe and mini fridge available if you wish (at an extra cost). There is 3 pools al together for various age groups. Daily activities are organised daily by the reps including daily quizzes, water polo and bowling amongst many others. For children there is also 2 parks and a soft play area which in under cover so stays nice and cool for the kids. There is also a small arcade area and other machines in the hotel like popcorn machines and surprise egg machines. Our children loved the kids club, there is an indoor and outdoor section of the kids club and all children get a kids club t-shirt and drinks bottle. The beach is literally a stones throw away, if you look on Google maps you can see just how close it is. The range of drinks available in the hotel is huge. There is many drinks on self service including slushies, juices, fizzy drinks, red and white wine, sangria and cocktail. There are some drinks which are chargeable but are so cheap. We paid 4 euros for a 1 litre jug of sangria and most chargeable cocktails were only a couple of euro. There is free ice cream available throughout the day and toasties available between certain times. The Breakfast, Lunch and dinner service were faultless. The food was always hot and plentiful the variety changed every day so i'm not quite sure what the certain reviewers saying the food was the same all the time were talking about. Certain foods like pancakes and kebabs are made fresh whilst you wait. The cooking area is an open area in the middle of the restaurant so you can see all you food been prepared and cooked. The restaurant is a very well thought out area with the same foods been served on 2 different sides of the cooking area so there's not a queue of people waiting for the same thing. Another thing that confused me in some reviews was people saying there is no shops nearby. The shops are that close you can see them from you balcony, there are literally a 2 minute walk away (literally). There is a supermarket which is very well stocked and some locals even seamed to be doing their weekly shop in there. Also in the same row of shops is a chemist, a car hire place, a souvenir shop which sells your typical gifts you would take home for friends and family aswell as lilos and other inflatables. Just after that on the same row is an ice cream shop and a sports bar which shows all major sporting events and premier league games. If you walk for about 5 minutes further past those shops there's an activity area for children where there is trampolines, bouncy castles, soft play, crazy golf and a few other activities, we paid 6 euros per child for the bouncy castle, trampolines and soft play and was for an unlimited time across all 3 activities. If your planning on going on an excursion I advise you not to go on the 'pirates of Menorca' we paid 80 euros and that was with children free. They sell as you go on a pirate ship when its not its a normal boat with a few pirate flags inside. You go to an island where you have to walk over sharp uneven rocks to get to the beach and there is absolutely no shade what so ever on the beach. For lunch you get a small plate of pasta and a drink. This trip is worth about 10 euros each at best. All you have to do is search the internet to see a massive amount of people have also complained about this excursion. I do however recommend the zoo, you get to walk around inside the enclosures with goats, kangaroos, emu and monkeys. its cheap and if you get a taxi and present your taxi receipt when buying your tickets you get 20% off. We will definitely be returning to Victoria Playa next year because for what you pay you get an amazing location, staff and service.More

As we approach our last day we have had a brilliant stay here at the Victoria playa. The staff our very friendly the reps our amazing especially tom Tom. Food good for a buffet style. Only down side really is the rooms could have been a bit bigger and the resort santo Tomas is a bit on the quiet side only a couple of shops and bars but because we was all inc it didn't effect us much. All in all a fab holiday ty More
Enjoyable first holiday
Having stayed on the island previously my girlfriend highly recommended staying here. The hotel although imposing has friendly staff and nice rooms with a good size balcony for sitting outside. The pool area was great although we spent most of our time on the beach which is 2 minutes away from the hotel. Went on a few bus trips and the bus stop is right outside the hotel as well. Small shop just outside which has everything you might have forgotten. If you walk along the sea front there are a few very nice restaurants. However food in the hotel was very nice if you don't want to walk too far. Some family entertainment too that wasn't for us but it by no means made the holiday any worse. Obviously a great choice for families but very suitable for couples too.More

Was great but not for us
The hotel and staff are great, rooms too small but you have to expect that when you go to an all inclusive hotel. No bars, shops, restaurants outside of the hotel if you fancied somw time out. Great if you like all inclusive holidays though it really is unfortunately its not the sort of holiday we like!More
