Protur Aparthotel Bonaire  

This award-winning aparthotel delivers plenty for families, including a river-style pool and a splash park.

This place has a long and winding main pool. Better still, there’s a children’s splash park with chutes, slides and a giant pirate ship. On the dining front, you can choose from a buffet place and an Italian.

The hotel’s about a 2-minute walk from a small sand-and-shingle beach. Meanwhile, the centre of Cala Bona is about a 10-minute walk away, and it’s a little further to Cala Millor, a bigger resort.

Splash pool

There's plenty of thrills and spills for little ones in their own splash pool.

Outdoor pool

The outdoor pool comes with a large sun terrace so there's loads of room for sunbeds and parasols. Palm trees are dotted along its edge, giving that bit of extra shade during the day. Pool towels are available here too.

Thomson Kids' Club April to October

Designed for 3 to 11 year olds, Thomson Kids’ Club offers two hours of activities, five or six days a week. And that includes at least three evenings. It’s split into sections, with Tots for 3 to 5 year olds, Team for 6 to 8s, and Tribe for 9 to 11s. Best of all, most kids’ clubs activities are completely free. And outside of peak season, there are parent and toddler sessions three days a week, too. For your peace of mind, all Thomson Kids’ Club staff have advance DBS checks and hold NVQ Level 2 childcare qualifications. They’re First Aid trained, and there’ll be at least two of them on duty at all times.

Great half term family break.

We wanted a family break during half term and the Protur Bonair seemed to tick all the boxes due to good reviews and being great for kids. We were certainly lucky with the weather considering the time of year as we had sunshine or broken sunshine every day apart from the Monday. Temp stayed at around 22 degrees, just right for our young family. The hotel is situated a couple of minutes walk form the sea. No real beach until further down but there is the harbour where you can take a glass bottom boat trip and there are a few bars & restaurants. A bit further down was the main part of Cala Bona which was quiet due to time of year but by no means a "ghost town". Lots of shops and restaurants were still open. Half an hour’s walk up the road to the larger resort of Cala Millor and there was a lovely beach and plenty more shops & restaurants. There is a road train with a stop right near the hotel if you don’t fancy walking. Hotel was exclusive to Thomson with all guests appearing to be from UK. Most of the hotel staff were great. Very friendly, spoke good English and made a real fuss of the kids. Our room was nice enough, clean and modern. Balcony overlooking pool with table & chairs on it. Main area had kitchenette, table & chairs two sofas and TV. All the essential channels such as BBC, ITV, BBC news, CBBC & CBeebies! Bed in main bedroom a bit hard but ok and sofas for kids to sleep on adequate if not ideal. We moved the coffee table and pushed the two sofas together so the kids couldn't fall out onto the hard floor which worked quite well. Nice modern fitted bathroom with shower in bath. The food was excellent. We found it to always be hot and plentiful. Even on the last Saturday night with only a few families left, there was a full variety and I remarked to my wife that sadly most of it would probably end up being thrown away. Can only assume reviewers that have criticised the food went towards the end of the sittings. You could eat at the main restaurant and from a buffet at the bar by the pool at lunch time. In the evening there was also an Italian restaurant which all-inclusive guests can visit once a week (more if you want to pay). This was ok for a change but preferred the main restaurant. Although not all the drinks were included in all-inclusive, all the food appeared to be. I notice somebody else said differently in their review? All inclusive alcoholic drinks included the local beer (quite nice, normal “holiday beer”) house wine by the glass (nothing special but ok and similar to house wine quality in UK) and three cocktails including Pina Colada. Other drinks were discounted for all-inclusive guests (around half price I think) and both prices were shown in the drinks menu. The TVs in the main bar were showing the Rugby world cup at one end and and Premier League football at the other. The outdoor pool was cold due to end of season but we still had fun in it and every day the Thomson team did some activities for the kids and quizzes etc. The indoor pool was quite small and a bit cool too but once in for a minute or two, soon got used to it. There is a lovely splash park for the kids which ours really loved. There is also an indoor soft play area for the little ones and outdoor play area with slides, table-tennis and pool tables. All the kids loved the Thomson evening entertainment in the main bar with “Little Pups” and “Kennel Club”. Plenty of activities and games and I still have all the tunes going round in my head! Ahhhh! lol. A special mention for three of the Thomson team known as “Energy-Emily”, “Cinder-Ellie” and “Agadoo-Lee” who were brilliant. After the kids entertainment there was usually something on for the adults; a band or a quiz or something but can’t comment on these as we had taken the kids back to the room by then. The Thomson kids clubs / creche looked to be really good too but we didn’t use them as we chose to make our own fun during the day time. they said the staff were all fully trained, CRB checked etc, same standards as in UK. At the welcome meeting there were several Thomson trips still available although we didn't go on any. We did go on a glass bottom boat trip from the harbour which was very enjoyable. Was a 3-hours in total, up the coast and back with several stops so you could get off to visit other resorts if you wished then catch a later boat back. Just a few grumbles: The pool towels are €15 cash deposit each to hire. As we were all-inclusive we didn’t take much cash and so found ourselves €60 down before we started. Then the safe cost €14 to hire plus €5 deposit for the activation key. There were cash machines in the resort though so no big deal. All inclusive customers had to order a small beer or glass of wine at a time, not a bottle but sometimes, depending on the bar staff, they might serve you a large one ;) Not a great choice of all-inclusive drinks. All in all we had a great time and would highly recommend, especially for families with younger children.More

Fantastic out os season holiday

We spent a week at this hotel from 10th October. I had read the reviews before I went and some of them said not to go if you don't have children! Ok, this is a family resort but we went out of school holidays and had a fantastic time. I believe they were closing for a while during November and reopening for the winter period. The hotel receptionists were lovely and extremely friendly and helpful. One reviewer said they didn't smile!! You know what they say, If they don't have one, give them one of yours! The rooms were great for us. We had a one bedroom apartment so were able to have a cup of tea first thing in the morning as there was a kitchenette. I can see why families are concerned about the front door. There was no security chain on them so little ones could quite easily escape. There was one on the balcony door though. The rooms were spotless. Not sure why the rooms are not serviced on a Friday or Monday though. The facilities at the hotel were fantastic for children. The animation team were wonderful, particularly Agadooley and Cinderellie. The adult entertainment was not great. The food was lovely. Something of everyone and the staff were really pleasant and friendly. The young hotel manager was great and was always around the hotel watching and making sure everything was working. The hotel is situated at the far end of Cala Bona and is set in its own grounds which were beautiful. Cala Bona is a very pretty resort leading on to Cala Millor so a walk along the sea front was beautiful. Some of the shops were starting to close while we were there. Getting ready for the winter, I suppose. Think it would be really overcrowded in the summer. We caught the bus to Porto Cristo and the market at Son Servera which is on Fridays. They are cheap 1.80 euros and fairly frequent. Sometimes we walked to Cala Millor and caught a taxi back which cost us 5 Euros. Not sure what is happening with this hotel next year. Apparently it's to become Platinum. Not sure how this will affect the children's clubs. It's a shame as this hotel is completely set up for families. Don't think I will return but that's because I don't like going back to the same place year after year.More

Half term close down

We spent a week here for half term holidays in October 2015. I have to agree with the previous reviewers, the staff are fantastic, sometimes a bit over zealous at removing your used plates in the restaurant, but always obliging. Food was mixed and can see where people have said about it being repetitive and sometimes cold. That said, hotel was very nice, and very child friendly, we would go back. Bad points. Swimming pool cold, room only cleaned 5 times during the week. The hotel was closing down at the end of the week, being their end of season, it was being packed up around us and felt a bit intimidating at times, the heated swimming pool was turned off on Monday and was as cold as the main outdoor pool by Friday, pool bar food area closed on Thursday and was all wrapped in plastic. The pool bar food area was open at the beginning of the week, but some food available was not included in the all inclusive package, some people got caught out and were presented with a bill. Less and less food was available as the week went one, no fruit juice, no bacon, no decaf tea bags, to name just a few. Sun beds stacked up and packed away, no Thomson excursions available Cala Bona was like a ghost town, most shops had closed down for the season.More

Nice holiday

Just returned from a week staying at this hotel with my daughter and granddaughter (aged 10), it is a very nice hotel and the rooms are apartments with separate bedroom and a lovely sitting room with table, chairs and a small kitchen area, the settees are sofa beds and my daughter slept on one of them. It was the last week of the season and they did run out of some things by the end of the week, my granddaughter loved the tropical juice and that ran out on Thursday, and on Saturday they started to put away the sunbeds but did leave out more than enough for the guests still in the hotel, one of the downsides of staying the last week, the staff were very friendly and the service was very good, the food in the restaurant was ok but not great, there was usually something we could eat, the breakfasts were very good, the freshly made omelettes were the best. The hotel is very clean and well maintained, the kids club was very well organised but did close before the end of the week, next year the hotel is changing to a Platinum hotel, so not sure if the kids club will still be there for families with small children.More
