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.

Good all round Hotel
Stayed here end April Beginning of May, Lovely apartment well equipped, with hair dryer, kettle & fridge, very clean, nice views looking over to the fields & Hills, good size pool but freeeeezing. you can hire pool towels just leave a deposit. Food was a bit hit and miss the first few days, then got much better as the week went on (season did not start until the end of our week). 2 mins to the front and you can walk all the way to Sa coma, dropping off at some nice watering holes. Will 100% be back to this hotel.More

FABULOUS FIRST TRIP
This hotel is just fabulous, arrived home today after a week at the Bonaire. Could of easily stayed for another week. The main stick out point for me was the staff, they are the most helpful, kindest staff I have ever come across, especially in the bar and restaurant. Nothing was ever too much for them and were happy to help whenever you needed. The bar staff kept the tables happy at night time by taking orders for drinks even when the place was mobbed and bringing them to you, really don't have a bad word to say about them. The hotel was of a top standard of cleanliness, and so was the pool. Pretty big pool so meant it was never mobbed. Even though there was a lot of children in and around the pool, it was very peaceful with entertainment happening in the background. Only negative point I have about the whole holiday was the receptionist who prowled the pool from 7 in the morning lifting towels off sunbeds until quarter to 8 and handing them back to you. However no biggie. The entertainment staff worked hard from morning till night, especially Megan and Natalie who seemed to have endless amounts of energy. Both have such a bubbly personality and it really does boost everyone's holiday spirit. Kids loved every member of the entertainment and kids club team and it shows just how much they all love their jobs. Night time entertainment good, with a lot of variety. Would definitely recommend this hotel and have already started looking for next year!!More
Very good holiday but improvements could be made
This is our 5th holiday to The Bonaire and it is nice to see continued improvements. Great kiddies pirate pool, and rooms have all been given good upgrade all with good air conditioning. Bar area also updated and new restaurants to have made the actual hotel even better than it was which was still very good. A mention has to be made to the management and staff. Most have been here for years but have the enthusiasm as though it is their first day. Pepe, Miguel, Oscar n Dani amongst the family favourites. Another positive is to see improvements in the area with new places being opened up and improvements to existing bars etc outwith of The Bonaire. Nice new gym if you wish to use the facilities but for us opening times aren't ideal n improvements could be made here, shutting at 3pm for people who may want to use it later in the day is to early. Pool excellent and poolside reservations not till 7.45 works a lot better than it did on previous visits. One slight improvement to the room would be better extractor in bathroom. The place is brilliant for kids but we feel there isn't that much for the 12-16 age range with the focus mainly being on the younger kids. The final comment will be on the Reps. 5 visits and always had great entertainers, however things this year are not as good as previous. The main 2 entertainers in our 1st week, Nat n James were fantastic, as good as we have had before, with good support from Megan and the rest of the troops, even if the biggest laugh we have from Megan is listening to her struggle with pronunciations, especially in the quiz. However James is / has been moved to another hotel down the road which has definitely affected the overall standard of the entertainment team which has been extremely disappointing for us as this is suppose to be No1 hotel in the area but it could definitely do with a James return at its busiest time or this part of the holiday will not be as good as it was or should be. Last couple of days here and likely to be back again sometime in the future, but please give Nat some supportMore

Great holiday but room for improvement
This was our second visit in 20 months and we have come away with a very similar impression again - a great holiday that had the scope to be amazing. Positives are it's a great hotel, well run - you see the Manager at all hours - with great friendly staff. The rooms are spacious, modern and well equipped for young families (blender/microwave for babies food/milk etc.) and you get a proper wooden cot. The rooms are cleaned 5 days a week (except Mon/Wed) and are spotless. The Reception has got friendlier since our last visit and this was appreciated. Bar staff were great as usual. The CrÃ¨che staff were great, really reassuring. The Kids Clubs were appreciated by us and our 5 year old. Negatives are mainly about Thomson rather than the Hotel sadly. The in house entertainment has got worse if anything since our Iast visit. Its almost height of season and it was very amateur, we weren't expecting West End but it was all bad timing/missed cues/not knowing dances etc. like it was opening few weeks. It lacks a leader figure like Asha-Boo provided last time to carry it off. We skipped the arrivals meeting as we'd been before but went to the departure one and it was pretty shoddily delivered. The invite talked about Courtesy rooms that don't exist, basic questions struggled with etc. When we saw the Reps it seemed mostly about revenue rather than experience sadly. We were at a loss as to who even was a rep at certain times as there seems to be a lot of Thomson staff congregating together. On occasion it seemed like the staff were there for the social aspect rather than being there for the guests. We also found that if you didn't do EVERY loud and overbearing activity, you were largely ignored, this also extended to our 5 year old daughter much too much to her upset. We only ate in the hotel on two lunchtime occasions at the pool snack bar, the food is cheap and cheerful and you get what you pay for. Drinks in the bar are fairly reasonable; 2.75â¬ for a glass of wine, 3.15â¬ for a large beer, so no complaints there. Our room was in block 3 at the back (3207), overlooking the mountains which we requested and am very glad we did as it was quiet, the rooms around the pool would've meant our children wouldn't have had an afternoon nap due to the very very loud tannoy (I mean everyone in the hotel needs to know about the water polo match way across the pool don't they?) We would recommend the top floor (we weren't on the top) as there is a lot of noise from tiled floors and scraping furniture from above! This said (and I know we sound moany!), we had a lovely holiday, the hotel is fantastic, the village is absolutely lovely but Thomson really need to pull their socks up.More

Another fab holiday
We've just returned from our second stay at the Bonaire (our first being 2 years ago) and yet again we weren't disappointed with this wonderful hotel, all geared up with families in mind. I emailed in advance to request the same room, or same block (4) if possible, and we were given the room next door, which was very clean and had everything we needed. Our kids were constantly entertained, be it at the splash pool, Kids club or Drop in club, and all the reps did a fantastic job. We were self catering again, so can't comment on the food at the hotel, but Cala Bona is a beautiful resort and there are plenty of lovely places to eat. We hired a car for three days from the hotel (or Protur cars) and the book on the reception desk details the prices, along with daily offers; however be aware that these are changed daily. These were very well priced and included everything we needed, so I would recommend this to see more of beautiful Majorca. This allowed us to see the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, the Soller train, and we found some lovely beaches, particularly Cala Mesquida and Cala de Sant Vicent. We did two trips through Thomson - Palma Cathedral , which isn't badly priced, and the Pirates Adventure which was brilliant. We booked the main deck seats but were able to upgrade to Quarterdeck at the venue at a cheaper price than charged by Thomson. However, regardless of the seat, we would definitely do this again. The only thing that lets this hotel down is the air conditioning - on several occasions it was cooler on the balcony than in the room, and one night it broke altogether, which led to a bad night's sleep. It turned out it had gone off in the whole block, and it was fixed later that day. I just wish that we could control it ourselves. We aren't sure whether we will return here but that is a personal preference that we like to try new places, and it was unusual for us to go one place twice! But overall this is a cracking hotel, ideal for families, and especially ideal if this is your first time abroad with little ones. If you have booked this, I hope you have a great time!More
