How to Get There
My partner and I spent a long weekend at Vivood and the location and views certainly lived up to expectation. On arrival however we were given a cabin with a huge crack in the window, not quite the picture perfect view we expected. Reception however, we’re very accommodating and swapped our room without a problem.
The room itself was gorgeous however it was the little details that let it down for example only instant coffee in the room which was not even replaced during housekeeping. I would’ve expected a bit more quality given the price per room.
Moving onto the pool area, the staff seemed to struggle with service, with every order taking well over 15mins. I would understand if it was busy but there were never more than 10 people around the pool. On our first day they also ran out of several spirits and were unable to make cocktails which was pretty disappointing. The waiter did try and make up for the situation by eventually comping our drinks after we had ordered two which he didn’t have spirits to make. Food wise at the pool, the menu was very limited with no snacks or options to try any local dishes but only poke bowls and burgers.
We were informed on our first day that complementary apperitivo was served before dinner. We joined only to discover it was fresh fruit and yoghurt- a strange choice for a pre-dinner snack and frankly quite disappointing.
We chose to dine in the restaurant twice. The first night we opted for the tasting menu as we were given a menu without any prices and the waitress was unable to tell us what anything cost. The dinner was mostly good except for my fish main which was raw. I told the waitress but she did not seem interested. We were surprised to find out that the tasting menu only came to 21 euro per person which seemed very cheap for the quality of (most) of the food. On the second occasion we dined, we received a menu with prices with the tasting menu priced at 48 euro... not sure what happened in two days to double the price. We ordered a la cart that evening and had some delicious dishes and wine. Whilst the food was overall good it was disappointing not to have the option to taste local dishes. With a country such rich in food and a mostly foreign clientele, it seemed a missed opportunity.
Overall we had a good stay at the hotel and the views are definitely to remember but it would benefit from the management experiencing the hotel as a guest and perhaps they would notice those little details which make a big difference!
Love the hotel location, very nice staff, pool, room, view, and I loved the shower. Also loved the little blue lake, nice to walk down there and take a swim. Good and quite, good for a solo trip just to read and relax but also romantic for couples. Love that it’s no children allowed hehe
We stayed 4 nights in a villa pool from 4th July. The villa was superb. Top floor was a lounge area with fridge, TV, microwave. All of the fridge contents were complimentary with the water/soft drinks being replenished. From the lounge you accessed the outside pool/Jacuzzi and the lower sun deck containing 2 sun loungers and umbrella.
Bottom floor in the villa was the bedroom. All lights, blinds and TV were controlled from a tablet built into the headboard. Get the drop off guy to show you how to reset it if it looses connection. Very easy to do.
View was fantastic.
Wife had an enjoyable 50 minute massage.
Had one pool side snack and ate twice in the restaurant and it was very good. Staff were excellent.
Drove out to nearby Guadalest for one meal as a change of scenery.
This is a totally chilled out holiday and if you cannot relax here then you will struggle to anywhere else.
Not sure how many villas/suites there are. If it were 40 then there is an approximate maximum of 80ish guests. No congestion anywhere.
I would highly recommend for a totally different holiday experience. For us, the 4 days were a perfect length of time.
Could have done with better overhead shading on our terrace i.e. wider and more rigid. Umbrella did blow away once during the day.
