Hotel Protur Alicia had a top-to-toe makeover in 2015. It now has a rooftop infinity pool and a swish à la carte restaurant, both of which offer spectacular ocean views.
This stylish adults-only hotel had a complete makeover in 2015. New features include a rooftop infinity pool and a themed à la carte restaurant, both of which take full advantage of the panoramic sea views you get here.
Set on Cala Bona’s seafront, the hotel’s close to three beaches, including a rocky one across the road. For soft sands, Cala Millor Beach is a 5-minute walk, while Cala Bona Beach is further down the prom.

Arrived back april 30th from an excellent weeks break at the Alicia.We only booked this holiday 3 weeks ago and this was money well spent.Could not find any faults with the Alicia after reading other peoples reviews especially when it comes to hotel food.I am a fussy eater and I enjoyed everything I ate,all the hot I had was hot!!.Credit to Sergio and his catering team who are always smiling and chatting,this is a very clean and well presented dining room.We had a seaview room on the first floor with the large balcony which had chairs and sunloungers which was well worth paying extra money for especially when you can sit up in bed with a cuppa and see the sea.The entertainment that we see was average except for La Boheme and Rebecca Parry who sings adele songs were by far the best acts.Natalie was very good with her bingo bongo,i had not played bingo for years and it was good fun.The location of the Alicia is very good,not too far from cala bona harbour and not far from cala millor beach also a bus stop outside of hotel and a noddy train stop.We did the western encounter tour and the blanket trip and both were very good,on the blanket trip you get a 90 mins stop in palma and a 20 mins at ceramic where you can try some liquers,pretty good for a free trip and Phil the guide was great with his music quiz on the way back.We also walked from the Alicia to sa coma and s'illot via the castle on the headland and this took 2&1/2 hours including a coffee stop and then walked back again.We would definitely stay in this hotel again,maybe in a few months time.Airport transfer was 1 hour and we were the first stop.Also if want a very good cup of tea then I recommend Stanleys tea room just along the main road which I will review separately..See you soon hotel Alicia..More
We visited this hotel for a week starting the 23rd April 2016. we booked through Thomson and were just looking for a weeks break. How fortunate we were to choose this hotel. It has recently been refurbished to a very high standard. From walking into the reception to leaving at the end of our week the staff were a delight, always friendly and polite. Special mention to all the reception staff, the restaurant manager, and waiter Ronaldo, and of course the cleaning staff, who kept the hotel immaculate. The evening entertainment was also the best in the area, with fantastic musicians and singers every night.They all made this a special trip. The hotel is spotlessly clean throughout, with bedding and towels changed for fresh clean replacements every day.The facilities are wonderful, especially the rooftop terraced pool area. This has stunning views across the bay. Also the view from our room was spectacular. We stayed on the second floor in room 205. We awoke to a beautiful sunrise and had the sun until around 1 in the afternoon.More
This is a lovely hotel, the staff are friendly & helpful. Our room was beautifully decorated, with an ingenious loo/shower. We had a sea view & a small balcony, facing east you get the morning sunshine but shade all afternoon. There is a pedestrian street outside the room so no noisy traffic. We went early in the season so it was quite while we were there but may be a bit noisier when everywhere is open. There is a small independent bar on the ground floor, apparently it closed about 12 when it's open.
The hotel has 3 pools, a small indoor, large ground floor pool with fairy lights in that you only see at night, very sweet. The roof top pool is a small infinity pool that's lovely, a chill-out area, unfortunately not everyone realised it should be a quiet area! Both outdoor pools are unheated.
There is entertainment on in the evening, which varied but the flamenco/Spanish dancing was very good, keep an eye on the impeccable footwork. There was also a duo called Duo Isla, also very good. I think the entertainment is a tow week cycle so if you're there for 1 week it will be difference artists.
The thing the let the hotel down for us was the food. The chefs cooking the food were very poor. the selection of salad was unimaginative & unchanging, the desserts were good if you like sweets. I'm not keen on buffet dining so you may not agree with my comments! There is a roof top restaurant that is somewhat better. Limited selection of wines, it would be nice to have a variety of local wines to try.More
We came for a week mid April and had lovely weather. Lovely modern hotel, large rooms, brilliant sea front location, great service and staff. In general overall we had a great holiday. The food was excellent but could have been a bit hotter. The rooftop had a nice sun bed area.
Just a couple of niggles which is why I didn't give the hotel 5 stars.
At the time of our holiday there were building work at a nearby hotel from 7-45am every morning, throughout the day there was drilling, hammering etc, we hadn't been made aware on booking the holiday or on arrival when we we allocated our room. Also the maids started cleaning the sun deck area at the front of the hotel under our room before 8am and they shouted to each other whilst cleaning. So all in all our room was in quite a noisy area especially early morning.
There was bingo every night before the entertainment, it was held in the main bar/ lounge area and although the bingo players were in the minority we were all forced to be quiet. Another downside was the quality of the entertainment; 3 nights out of the 7 were good, 1 female singer on the Friday was very good, but the other 3 night it was quite poor.
As a disabled guest I had a big problem with most of the chairs and sofas in the chill out area which were too low and most of the sun loungers were so low, a lot of older guests or like myself disabled guests would struggle to get down to them or out of them. There are 2 main lifts and a small lift at the new end of the hotel. This small lift is quite small for wheelchair or electric scooter use and the angles of the doors on the ground floor and when exiting through the emergency fire door on the bedroom floors meant it was nigh impossible without someone with you.
Cala Bona as a resort it quite good for disabled guests however some taxi drivers, delivery men and some shop owners do tend to block pavement with their vehicles / and or goods which is especially frustrating when they block the lowered curbs. The pedestrianised promonade is good but can be quite dangerous a there is a cycle lane down the centre of the prom and cyclists race in groups not alway in the designated lane.More
We have been here since last saturday 23 april, and to be honest we cant fault the place, rooms are spotlessly clean, the staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. There is an excellent choice of food and there should be something there to suit all tastes. We have one of the rooms on the first floor with the larger balcony, its very comfortable and well furnished and its a real pleasure to wake up to a beautiful sea view every morning. Location is very good with a bus stop just outside the front of the hotel. Highly recommended. More
