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.

Plenty of Space and lots of facilities - Food was a slight dissapointment

Having Apartment rooms is a big bonus as a family rather than one hotel room. The rooms are lovely, modern and clean. Cleaners are OK, but its more of a brisk wipe over than a clean. The Facilities are second to none, huge amount of space, plenty of loungers, huge pool, soft play, parks, football pitch etc etc. Great for Kids. Thomson Staff are fantastic as well. So yes great hotel, lots of stuff for kids and they will love it. So negatives - only a few and nothing major and some are more observations. The food is quite nice, but not as good as the Coma Gran we stayed in last year for instance. Its not bad, its above average. The hotel is at the far end of the resort so if you do fancy a wonder there isn't much close by, few bars but thats it. Evening entertainment after the kidy stuff has finished is comically bad some night. but you'll be drunk so it'll be ok. Everyone is a family so expect many kids, so if you are a couple I would go elsewhere. In conclusion, nice hotel and you'll have a great time with the kids (if you have kids go elsewhere), foods alright but its all inclusive what did you expect.More

Nice clean, family friendly hotel

We visited the Bonaire Cala Bona in June 2016. The hotel is very clean, good facilities and lovely big pool with an additional good sized splash pool for younger children. This was the first time we went all inclusive and we weren't disappointed. The food was lovely and lots to choose from with pool side snacks available all day, you won't go hungry. The hotel does cater for younger families and personally for us we found that our boys (9 and 13 years) were a little too old to benefit from any entertainment. However, there is a football court which our eldest enjoyed. The accommodation was clean and serviced regularly, but we found it a little small and dark, the beds which the kids had to sleep in were just small sofas in the living area which didn't pull out, so for our older child this was not particularly comfortable. The entertainment is varied with external acts on some of the evenings which were enjoyable, but the Thomson entertainment was not very good at all. Every night from 7pm - 9.00 ish the kiddies entertainment dominates which is too loud, too repetitive and goes on for too long, we did find ourselves wandering down to a local pub outside of the complex just to get away from it.. Cala Bona itself is very nice with a port, shops, restaurants and a small beach, Cala Millor is just further along the coast and is busier and has bigger, sandier beaches. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly. I would recommend this hotel.More

Mahen1,

First family holiday to the Bonaire

We visited the Protur Bonaire Aparthotel with our two boys, aged 6 and 18 months. After a nightmare plane ride (due to baby with a perforated eardrum) we arrived at the Bonaire to a friendly welcome at reception and then were delighted with our room on arrival (block 2 situated above remini restaurant). Very spacious and clean with a little kitchenette and huge balcony. The room and hotel itself were lovely and well kept, clean and modern. Only minor faults were the TV room had no TV and the soft play area had a funny smell but like I said these are very minor things. The rooms are cleaned everyday apart from a Thursday and Saturday. We had some weird plant substance all over our balcony which did make it hard to keep the floors in our room clean because the stuff kept blowing into our room when the balcony door was open. Splash pool was great and there was a park and air hockey etc to keep the kids entertained. Restaurant was lovely with a vast choice of food at every mealtime so there was something for everyone. We were all inclusive which I would recommend. Even our fussy 6 year old was happy. There was also the pool bar and another little bar near splash pool which served meals outdoors. We tried remini (the Italians onsite) and really enjoyed it. The waiter lorenzo was particularly friendly and helpful. We also tried the bbq outside at the pool bar on one evening and was nice apart from my chicken was raw inside, staff were very apologetic and I have a feeling it won't happen again. All in all staff on the whole were lovely. Very friendly and approachable. The area itself of cala bona was really nice. Good choice of bars and restaurants. We ate at lemongrass (a lovely Thai restaurant) one afternoon which was great. We hired a family bike from tucan bikes and rode all the way along past cala millor to sa coma. The beach at cala bona is small and it's worth the 20 minute (30 minute if you have young kids) walk to the beach at cala millor. Another minor downside was some of the hotels evening entertainment. The section for the kids was great including 'lets get loud' however some of the evening entertainment was a bit boring (sorry thomson reps...you guys are still fab but some of it just wasnt our cup of tea). The new jersey boys were by far the best entertainment of our weeks stay. Kenyan boys were also very good. Also wouldn't recommend the show pirates that you can buy tickets for from thomson reps if you have young children. Simply as it's a very long bus ride (too long for an 18month old), no highchairs at venue and your not allowed to take pushchairs in. The show itself was great but not ideal for young children. Despite some minor downsides overall we had a great holiday and would definitely return in the future. We met lots of families who were on their 2nd, 3rd, 4th visits!!! Main clientel of this hotel seemed to be english holidaymakers and definately better suited for families. Keep up the great work Protur Bonaire. Will recommend your hotel to our friends and family :-) P.s to Tom's parents if you ever happen to read this, his little buddy was gutted he didn't get to say bye!!! XMore

Fab Holiday

Had a really enjoyable wk at the Bonaire, travelled as a group of 4 (2 adults, 2 children). The whole place is spotless, and the staff work really hard to keep it that way. Food was good and plentiful and we'd definitely return, only negative point would be that even tho we had paid extra to keep our room on till 6, our key stopped working at 12, which was a bit of a pain when we had a 6 year old that was desperate for the loo, was sorted at reception but didn't even get a sorry. Apart from that blip, a really lovely relaxing holiday. 🙂More

Emma J,

Great Hotel

Visited with my 4 year old and 18 month old in June and really enjoyed ourselves. My son declared this "the best hotel ever". The staff were excellent, the rooms were nice and there was a great variety at the restaurants. The facilities for the children were excellent and my son really enjoyed the kids club. I would struggle to find any areas which they could improve on, but the soft play area could do with a few more things for the kids to play with but that would be about it. More
