This hotel has an enviable position opposite the harbour, with bars and restaurants – as well as the beach – to hand.
This family-run hotel is made up of five blocks, with a mid-sized pool in the main area. You’ll also find a buffet restaurant, and a bar where tribute acts entertain guests in the evenings.
The hotel sits opposite the harbour so shops, bars and restaurants are all close by – it’s a scenic setting that becomes vibrant at night. And the beach is just a minute’s walk away.
This hotel is part of our 3T favourites range until April 2017.

Two weeks too long
Didn't intend this holiday but being totally cheesed off with the UK weather we decided on a last-minute getaway. Our first choice in Cala Bona, the Levante was unavailable due to major refurbishment. However, we had seen the Hotel Cala Bona on previous visits and thought how pretty and traditional it looked so when it popped up at what appeared a good deal we thought we would give it a go. No drama with the coach transfer but on arrival were dropped off around the corner at a supermarket. We then had to make our way without porterage down a back street that leads to the reception area in a building behind what appears in the brochure. Check in was a total shambles and complete chaos with people and cases everywhere. First time visitors were given a form to complete whilst previous guests were checked in and had their photographs taken! When we did get to a receptionist we discovered that this was the first hotel we have ever stayed in that operates on a purely cash basis with no facility to run a tab. Eventually rescued by the excellent Jamie who escorted us to our room in the front building. The room classed as a 'superior sea view' was of excellent proportions with a wonderful view of the harbour. Unfortunately the clean minimalist dÃ©cor went a little too far. The proud boast of a kettle and cups was just that with no tea, coffee etc. provided. There is no minibar but a very useful fridge complete with ice box so first job was back to the supermarket to stock up with supplies. We also discovered later that the miniature piece of soap would not be replaced, we were very grateful that the toilet roll was not also on ration. Dining is in a huge hall with table pre-allocated, we turned out lucky with our placement in the naughty corner. Food was poor, never very hot and of limited choice. The soup at dinner was always consistent, a strange shade of green but with a different name every night. We persevered due to the lovely Mei and the two main chefs. Ironically the best meal was the traditional roast beef, the meat was excellent and a good stab at Yorkshire pud. In the end though we just had to eat out. The pool area is reached sensibly through a room-key operated locked door. The pool bar never opened all the time we were there and after a few days a hotline was set up to the main bar for service. If we needed our room or to go to the cafeteria, good pizza by the way, it meant a major expedition. Out of the pool area down a flight of stairs, through reception across the back street into the main bar and either up the lift or out to the quayside. Entertainment was on every night with a couple of great acts, Assen, Guitar Legend and Rural Pursuit. The rest were pretty bland but the bar staff more than compensated particularly Rafa who has a wicked sense of humour. A warning about our room at the front though. If like us you like to sleep with windows open and shutters closed you will benefit from the wit and wisdom of the smokers below and the stench of cigarette smoke entering the room. We generally found that we had a two hour slot between them going to bed and the fishing boats setting off in the morning. We did have extremely good weather during our stay so that and the waiters salvaged our holiday, but we could not in all honesty recommend this hotel even at a bargain price. It would possibly suit young families better as it has a large kiddies area in the pool.More
We stayed during the first week of March never visiting this part of Majorca before. The hotel is clean, staff friendly and helpful and the breakfast and dinners were fantastic. We had a superior double which we really could not fault. We were blessed with fantastic weather during our stay and enjoyed walking to cala millor shops and beaches and enjoying the coffee in the hotels bar. Would highly recommend More
Family Run Hotel
We stayed at this hotel to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary and had a fantastic time during our stay. All the staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough to make our stay memorable,I ordered a bouquet via the reception and they were absolutely beautiful. We had a superior sea view room with fabulous views over the harbour,unfortunately we only had Sun in the morning and it was quite cold to sit outside from our balcony in the afternoon. The food was very good with a varied selection to suit all tastes.More

Good hotel in fantastic location
It seems that HCB (Hotel Cala Bona) is taking over the quiet harbour of Cala Bona. It had a large neighbour, the Catalonia del Mar, buts its size puts me off it. HCB is not really one building but about five, all close to the central one where the pool and restaurant are. In a harbour like this, you should definitely try to book a sea view room - it makes a huge difference. There doesn't seem to be quite so much benefit in the superior room, but I think it depends which building you are in. My building, formerly Hotel La Pergola, was clean, well maintained, and in a great location. I did hear tale of a fellow traveller whose room was invaded by ants, but believe the hotel dealt with it swiftly and professionally. A kettle was provided, but Brit tourists take note that (a) kettle is not standard in every room; and (b) when you get a kettle it is just that - they give you cups and saucers, but no tea, coffee, sugar, etc. Not too much hassle as there is a handy BIP supermarket just around the corner. Meals (breakfast and dinner) are very generous buffets, with changes every day. There are so many choices of what to put on your plate, I would find it hard to believe that there isn't something that even the most fussy eater can enjoy. Point to beware though: dinner does not include any drink - not even water - you would need to pay for whatever you require. Evening entertainment changed each night, and not to everybody's taste, but with four bars within close walking distance (I don't walk far) you can choose where you go, and probably save on the cost of drinks in the process. Would I come back ? YesMore
Great fortnights holiday
Arrived at the hotel after a good morning flight (thompsons) from Manchester, quick booking in and the hotel had upgraded us to a better room, very nice modern clean newly renovated room (320) great view looking over the pool area to the mountains, very satisfied. Good food throughout the fortnight freshly cooked and hot plenty of choice, salads soup or antipasta for starters, choice of a fish course one or two meat courses and on some days a carvery sweets galore. Great breakfast either hot or cold or a mixture of both Kuki the on order chef does a sterling job great omelettes and pancakes to die for. We didn't use the bar area much (in fact not at all) nothing to do with either the service or prices it's just that both of us being diabetics alcohol is a no no these days, the other guests complimented the majority of the evening entertainments. Great Holiday, Now for the litmus test would we go again YES but perhaps a little later in the season as the resorts around were only around 15% open but still plenty of cafes and bars etc enough shops - most sell the same stuff anyway.More
