Thomson Kids' Club May to October

Designed for 3 to 11 year olds, Thomson Kids’ Club offers 2 hours of activities, 5 or 6 days a week. And that includes at least 3 evenings. It’s split into sections, with Tots for 3 to 5 year olds, Team for 6 to 8s, and Tribe for 9 to 11s. Best of all, most kids’ clubs activities are completely free. And outside of peak season, there are parent and toddler sessions 3 days a week, too. For your peace of mind, all Thomson Kids’ Club staff have advance DBS checks and hold NVQ Level 2 childcare qualifications. They’re First Aid trained, and there’ll be at least 2 of them on duty at all times.

Outdoor pool

It’s designed like a cloverleaf with one leaf set aside for toddlers, and edged by sun terraces laden with loungers and palms.

Splash pool

The little ones won't want to leave once they see the menagerie that is the hotel splash pool. With slides, waterfalls and water jets this custom made splash area will keep them happy for hours.

Great holiday with friends

Travelled with my husband, 2 teenage sons (13, 16) and 2 other families with children ranging from 12 to 16. Please do not worry about the mediocre reviews for this hotel. It is very clean, and if you are up before 7am you will see a sea of housekeeping staff cleaning everything that does not move. the pool are, pool, even the large windows at reception. Food is very good, and there is lots of choice. I have Coeliac and need to eat gluten free. The hotel was one of the best I have come across at accommodating for that. The last weekend we were there the hotel was hosting a weekend for the Majorcan branch of the Coeliac Society! I generally like hotels to be quiet, but I did not find the music or entertainment at the pool in any way intrusive. We were there in the last week of the season, so maybe that made a difference. Ask for a pool view.More

Excellent service, great location!

This is the second time we've stayed at the hotel and we love the location and the very friendly reception staff who were always very helpful. The indoor pool is also a real perk.The price is very reasonable and I think it's definitely worth the money! The rooms are average but are clean and the kitchen is well stocked to ensure you can cook a decent meal.More


Perfect family holiday!

We stayed here with our 2 year old daughter for 1 week in May 2013. We had a 1 bed apartment that overlooked the spa and football pitches (not owned by hotel) and our block was lovely and quiet. The apartment was clean and had all you could need for a week's stay. We stayed on a self catering board basis as this gave us a bit more flexibilty with our little one. We did eat in the on site restaurant on two occassions-tokens are available to purchase from reception for self catering guests-and the food was great. Buffet option of course but we loved the fact there was a separate buffet for kids with kid friendly food and desserts. The surroundings are great-good sized pool aswell as kids pool with slides. There is a pond just outside of reception with fish and frogs (!) in and our daughter loved frog spotting each time we passed by. There is a wonderful spa with sauna, steam room, pool and jacuzzi. We stayed with Thomson and the entertainment is kids based in the early evening-our daughter LOVED Thomson the dog and the disco and we got to relax with a glass of Cava( buy a bottle, it's more cost effective than individual glasses if you want more than one!) The hotel is located at the top end of the Pine Walk and it was a lovely peaceful walk into Puerto Pollensa to eat at night. Wide selection of restaurants in the town that are all child friendly and it was great walking back by the sea spotting fish and crabs in the shallows. All in all a great family holiday. We'd love to go back one year!More

Brilliant beach. Lots of walking.

I have previously visited the bonaire hotel in Cala Bona and this doesn't really compare I'm afraid. There are some positives though. The beach is excellent for toddlers (I went with my 2 year old). The pine walk is nice although difficult with a push chair. We were self catering so the only option for us was to walk the 20-30 minute or so walk into the town which was a bit much every day with a pushchair bearing in mind we also had to do this for the beach, and for lunch, and for shopping for our kitchen. The hotel does have a little shop attached which was a Godsend a couple of times but it was a bit pricey and with a very small range (tiny shop). The area around the pool could have been cleaner, dirty glasses from the night before never seemed to get moved, bits of food about the area. We had dreadful rain for over half the holiday which didn't help, but the indoor pool was nice although not really suitable for children. The food offered for the all inclusive evening meal was dreadful. We are all veggie and just had to live off pizza and chips when we went in. Even that was stone cold.More

perfect for kids

You can't knock the effort that the Thompson staff put in to make sure the majority of families have a great time. Cheesey evening entertainment is all harmless fun & easily ignored with the help of a few drinks because the kids are having a blast & coming to no harm. The restaurant is comfortable & clean with lovely fresh choices on the buffet. The pools are super & the chairs get put away at night so folk can't "save" them. The air conditioned rooms have just enough space for a family of four, you won't be in them much, the kitchen is tiny but again, you'll be out enjoying Pollenca. The hotel is right at the end of the pine walk so everyday you can enjoy the full route there & back...Just beautiful. Look out for the seaplane taking off to put fires out! Easy shallows for littlies to try 1st snorkelling too, magical.More
