This hotel has been recognised by travel industry experts for its family-friendly credentials. The main talking point is the children's splash park. It’s got chutes, slides and even a giant pirate ship. The neighbouring swimming pool, meanwhile, has been styled like a river, winding its way through palm-dotted terraces. The adjoining lawns offer up plenty of quiet corners, too.
Elsewhere, there's plenty more going on. You'll find a renovated indoor pool and sauna, as well as a gym. There's also a Thomson Kids' Club and a playground for the little ones. The fun continues into the evenings, with talent shows, live entertainment and mini-discos part of the line-up.
The apartments have just had a total makeover, and are really stylish as a result. Each one comes with a comfortable lounge, decorated with pale green walls and curtains, sleek dark-wood furnishings and soft lighting. Bedrooms, meanwhile, feature rich purple bedspreads and dove grey curtains.

Just back from a week at the Bonaire over the Easter holidays and we couldn't fault this hotel at all. Everything was spotless, plenty of storage in the modern appartment and a good sized balcony. The beds were firm for me but I do love my memory foam mattress! The staff were all friendly and helpful and the bar staff remembered us and our usual drinks after a couple of days. The facilities are really great, it was our first time in a Thompson Family Friendly hotel and our 7 yo enjoyed the kids club parties and evening entertainment with the fantastic entertainment team and Thompson the dog! He also loved the splash pool and made friends with the other kids giving us chance to relax. Much fun was had with the local shop doing a roaring trade in water guns! The main pool is also great (with entertainment around it going on throughout the day) but it was pretty chilly so we only went in once prefering the splash pool area. You can borrow towels for the pools at 15 € deposit each and change them 3 times during the week. Safe and tv remote also require a deposit and these all must be cash. You can get a card to put drinks/purchases on through the week and we used the deposits towards the bar bill which we settled the night before departure. It worked very well. We went self catering and did not use the hotel restaurants so cannot comment on them. We priced up breakfast which was 13 € but tended to alternate between cereal in the apartment and a full english (large, small and veggie versions) for 4-5.50 € including a drink at the excellent Rope and Anchor on the sea front. Cala bona was beautiful. A 5 min walk from the hotel to the sea, closest pizza place doing excellent takeaway pizza and shop. 10 mins to resort centre or small supermarket and a pleasent 20 min+ walk to Cala Millor which is a much bigger resort. We booked the hotel only with Thompson and then flights with Ryanair and transfers through Travel Republic saving quite a bit over a package deal. Would definitely recommend this hotel and hope to go back.More

Great trip with the Grandchildren.
We stayed here last September, (have had communication problems with TA, basicaly, they do not reply to your e mails re lost details, so had to re-join, hence delay!) There were 6 of us, 10 months, 2 years, 27, 28, 56 & 55. We loved it, and the children loved it even more. This place is geared towards the children and it is a gem! The staff in the restaurant have the patience of saints, we left so much mess! The entertainment was great with Thomson the Dog taking star billing! It is a long way from anything but that did not matter. Have a great time!More
I would like to share with you all our wounderful holiday 12/4/14 - 19/4/14 one week was not long enough !!! We had a family holiday 4 generations, ages 84, 53, 27, 4 & 2 . Lovely hotel, spotless clean, helpful staff, Thompson staff jolly and friendly, kids clubs wounderful, food very nice, plenty of it, we went all inclusive, ( none of us got ill), swimming pools fantastic, pirate pool amazing, pools cold as not yet warmed up from the summer sun, kids had wet suits which worked well. Indoor pool perfect. I can honestly say this was the best holiday we have had for a long long time. We didnt need to leave the hotel, however, we did visit the beaches, we didnt stay long as it was easier and safer for the children at the pool area. We all came home feeling rested and relaxed, none of us wanted to leave. RECOMMENDED. Book it up and make me jealous. We hope to go again next year, with even more family memebers.More

Fantastic Family Holiday
I travelled with my husband, 3 and 1 year old at the beginning of March to the Protur Bonaire and from start to finish it was one of the best holidays we have had as a family. Whilst the weather was not scorching hot, it was warm for the time of year but that is a risk you take when travelling to Majorca in March and is not a fault of the hotel. The transfer from the airport was about an hour and whilst there was a queue to check in once at the hotel, it didn't take long at all to get through everyone and it was an easy process. Leaving the hotel, however, was pure chaos and I think the Thomson reps should have organised it much better rather than allowing it to be a free for all to get onto the 3 buses that arrived to pick us up. The rooms at the hotel, however, are absolutely lovely. We had a room in block 5 on the ground floor which meant we got the sun in the afternoon and we had a lovely, safe balcony where we could sit out with our 3 year old whilst our little one slept. My husbnd and I also utilised the balcony in the evening whilst our children were asleep and whilst it was cold because it was March, there were plenty of blankets to keep us warm and enjoy a nice glass of cava.The main bedroom was of a good size as were the lounge and kitchen area. Our 3 year old slept on the sofa bed in the lounge and was more than comfortable. There was also a tv with a couple of English channels - even Cbeebies which is good to keep little ones entertained when getting ready. The bathroom was really modern and clean. The maid service was 5 days out of the 7. The package we got through Thomson was really good for half board but when we arrived, we decided to upgrade to all inclusive what with having the children and it was really one of the best all inclusive we have ever had. The food was plentiful and more important of a fantastic quality - buffet style for breakfast and dinner and at lunch time it was order off a menu and nothing was too much trouble. Both myself and my youngest son love melon so I asked for some even though it wasn't on the menu and on most days, a huge plate was brought out to us. We did try the Italian on site and whilst the food was nice, it was probably our worst meal of the holiday mainly because of the service but I will put that down to first night opening and I would give it another go if I ever returned. The restauarant and bar areas were well maintained. The drinks package was excellent and whilst some of the named brands you had to pay for - If you were all inclusive, they were discounted, but we were happy with the local brands. We love a glass of cava in the evening and rather than just give us a glass, we were given the bottle which we could enjoy on our balcony - superb! It had been my birthday the day before we travelled and my husband contacted the hotel prior to our arrival to advise of this and they left a bottle of cava and huge chocolate cake in our room. The location is a 5/10 minute walk from Cala Bona and then about a further 15/20 minutes from Cala Millor. Its a nice walk but not ideal with 2 young children so we decided to hire a car. We always tend to hire prior to our holiday but this time we did it when we arrived through the hotel. We felt it was quite expensive but worth it because in March you are limited with what you can do if the weather isn't always ideal for the beach. We did manage many enjoyable trips to the beach though and did lots of exploring. We definitley needed the car though. The grounds of the hotel are very nice and well kept it would be great in the summer to get into one of the outdoor swimming pools but they were far too cold for March as my eldest son and husband found out on the first day. My son was desperate to have a go in the childrens pool but it proved too cold for him after one go. One of the things that had attracted us to the hotel was the indoor pool but it was a bit of a let down because whilst it was a good size and never too busy, it was too cold for our one year old. It really would be my one recommendation that needs an improvement to the hotel. There is also a childrens playground a little soft play area. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a really great holiday to Majorca. We are defintiely looking to return as it is a real quality hotel where the staff and service are fantastic.More
We are currently staying at the Bonaire having booked through Thomson. We paid £398 pp half board basis for one week over Easter and I think it's excellent value. To start, this is by far the best accommodation we have ever had in Europe at this type of resort. We booked two 1 bed apartments and were given two next door to each other. Both apartments are clean and furnished to a high standard, with twin beds in bedroom and two single sofa beds in living room, all very comfortable. There is a small kitchen with fridge and microwave but as half board, have not cooked in the apartment. The bathroom is clean and modern with bath over shower and the shower is excellent with plenty of hot water. There is a balcony with table and three chairs and maid service everyday. There are plenty of us beds around the pool, which is a good size although pretty cold at the moment! There's also a pool bar and the entertainment team are around all day providing lots of activities but not intrusive if you don't want to participate. The buffet restaurant is a good size to cater for guests and the food is very good and includes a chef cooking omelettes to order at breakfast, as well as all the usual breakfast dished you'd expect. Plenty of choice in the evenings to and the service is excellent. Seated quickly and empty plates cleared almost before you chance to put your knife and fork down! There's also the Rimini Italian restaurant which, despite some of the reviews, we found to be very good. We did have to wait a while for our main course but were given a bottle of very nice Rioja as an apology so no complaints from us. The entertainment team work hard all day and into the evening, though as a family hotel, it is more aimed at the younger children but there is some stuff to appeal to older guests too. Cala Bona unfortunately doesn't have too much going on but we've had a couple of nice lunches in town, in particular at the Rope and Anchor. There isn't much of a beach here but we're happy to chill around the pool anyway. Altogether, probably the best place we've stayed and very good value for money. Will definitely come here again and would recommend to other travellers, especially those travelling with children. A big thank you to all the staff at the Bonaire for making our stay so enjoyable, we will be very sorry to leave you on Friday but we'll definitely be back again !More
