There are 3 beaches within easy reach of this hotel. It’s also handy for Cala Bona’s bars and shops.
This stylish hotel has a pool both indoors and out. The outdoor one is big and square, and it has a separate children’s area. At mealtimes, there is a buffet restaurant, plus an à la carte. And it's having a top-to-toe makeover for summer 2015.
Set on Cala Bona’s seafront, the hotel’s close to 3 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.

We have stayed here 3 times and will definitely return. The staff are very helpful and go out their way to look after their guests and accommodate any special requests you may have. The whole hotel is spotlessly clean and the food in the restaurant both at breakfast and dinner is varied and of excellent quality. The sea view room is well worth having and the location is good for the beach and is a short walk to the harbour.More
Spotlessly Clean, Friendly Hotel
This was our first visit to Cala Bona and the Alicia Hotel and we would certainly return. We travelled with our 2 teenagers and to be honest, we were worried as some of the other reviews were from an older generation of traveller, but there were lots of other families holidaying with children of all ages (but then this was school summer holiday time). The evening entertainment was okay but to be honest we played bingo and then went across the road to "The Pub" or had a wander to the harbour where there is a wide choice of bars and restaurants. The Hotel is ideally placed with Cala Bona a 5 min walk in one direction and Cala Millor a 10 min walk in the opposite direction and because it is on the outskirts of both resorts, after 12 it is extremely quiet (given it was peak season, this was a real plus for me!). The beach close by is very rocky and difficult getting in and out of the sea but you can walk into Cala Millor where the beach is beautifully sandy. The choice of food offered at the hotel for both breakfast and dinner is very varied and it would be difficult not to find something you like to eat. The rooms were basic but all needs catered for and most importantly, spotlessly clean with fresh towels every day. We had a sea view room which was a real "sea view" and not a glimpse some water or hanging over a balcony to see the sea (as we have found with other hotels). The most important thing we feel about this hotel is that all the staff we encountered were so polite and always happy. A really excellent holiday was had by all !More
A hotel for everybody !!
Have just enjoyed a weeks holiday at the Alicia hotel from 4th August Hotel spotless,food outstanding , staff very friendly. Went with 13year old son he absolutely loved it !. Good assortment of age groups , couples, both familes with younger children and families with teenagers. Range of activities available if you want to participate.thanks to the hard work of Chris and Mary. Could always get a sun lounger as towels are now removed by hotel staff if loungers are left unoccupied for over one hour . Definitely recommend the Alicia .More

Excellent holiday - hotel, staff and location superb
Have just returned from 14 nights at the Alicia with my family (daughter 7). Before we traveled, I read some of the reviews on here and was somewhat concerned regarding the perceived age group of its clients (mobility scooters etc) and the queuing for dining tables. Maybe it was because we visited in the main summer school holiday period, but there were several young families who were repeat customers. The entertainment provided during the day was not too invasive, there was no pressure to join in, a big THANK-YOU must go to CHRIS and MARY for organizing a varied entertainment programme for both kids and adults; they worked tirelessly to ensure everyone was having a good time, our daughter particularly enjoyed the evening mini-disco! The food at The Alicia can only be described as excellent (we are amazed how other people can fault it...). The choices were varied, the food was always fresh, hot and plentiful. The salad bar was amazing. The restaurant held a showcase evening on Thursdays, which were fantastic. The drinks prices in the restaurant were very reasonable, an average bottle of red/wine/rose wine was around 9 euros, The restaurant times are between 7pm and 9pm, for those who prefer to dine outdoors, there are a number of tables on the terrace, a great outdoor area overlooking the pool. A special mention must go to SERGIO, this guy is a machine and is always smiling, very helpful and really helped make our holiday. We tended to dine between 7.15pm and 7.30pm, we never experienced any problems getting a table; admittedly some of the tables are close together but there are plenty with extra space between them to choose from. Breakfast was served from 8am to 10am, again a great choice, full English, fruits, pastries and omelettes to order, superb. The Alicia give everyone an a la carte style evening in their El Mar restaurant, with amazing views over the sea. This was waitress service, 5 courses; soup or prawn cocktail to start, salmon or pasta, lemon sorbet, beef or honey lamb and wide choice of desserts, delicious... As everyone has commented the hotel is spotless, great location, just a few mins walk to the bus stop with transport to other parts of the island, including Porto Cristo, Alcudia, Puerto Pollensa, Palma to name a few. We took the bus to the Caves of Drach for just 1.85 euros each, journey took around 50 mins but was well worth it. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful; the only issue we had during the 2 weeks was with the attitude of one of the pool bar staff, otherwise they were brilliant. Our room on the 1st floor had an amazing sea view, bathroom was on the small side but was more than adequate, always piping hot water. Air con could be better. As others have commented, people still persist to put towels on the sunbeds at the crack of dawn, we left yesterday and saw two guys go down to the pool at 06.30am (but show me a hotel in Spain where this doesn't happen!) The hotel does not appear to enforce leaving cards on beds which are unoccupied, which is a pity, however there are sufficient beds for everyone albeit you may not got your ideal position. As some reviewers have commented, the pool was rather cool on occasions due to its position; it would have been better if it was a bit shallower at the one end, to allow smaller kids to join in with some of the water games, eg junior water polo, water aerobics etc, but this is only a minor gripe. This didn't bother us too much as we often took the short 10-15 mins to Cala Millor beach, which was fantastic, albeit very busy due to the time of year. Hope this review helps someone.More

I don't normally feel strongly enough to write a review on things, but this hotel is fabulous. Just returned from a two week stay from a much needed holiday, and what a holiday! the Hotel is so friendly, the staff work so hard, you want for nothing here. Everyone is so friendly and helpful, even the cleaning staff who work tirelessly throughout the day. Chris on the entertainment was brilliant with kids and adults alike. The food was lovely and so much to choose from, I have never seen my son eat so much and try different things! the restaurant staff must be shattered as they never stop for a minute, over looked by the very enigmatic Sergio, who made every person feel special, and Manuel who smiled and laughed at everything (I want a pet Manuel!). It was so relaxing and the view from our room on the 5th floor, sea facing was just beautiful. I am missing opening the patio door and listening to the sea now I am home. The position is perfect, walking out at night along the promenade, made us regularly say we had chosen the right hotel. There is a fab night life, so many restaurants (you must go to Yates for food, by far the best for value and food was delicious) along the promenade walking to Cala Millor just 10 minutes walk, again, everyone so friendly and you felt completely safe at night. All in all a wonderful, family friendly, adult friendly and relaxing hotel. It will be interesting to see what the refurb is like. Can recommend the orange blossom trail trip, and Palma/Valdemossa (exceptionally beautiful) A MUST to go stay.More
