We (couple with 13 month baby) took our first "family" holiday here. As a holiday it would always be a very different experience to the other holidays we had taken, both together and separately. Cala Bona is a very quiet little town north from the livelier Cala Millor and I'm glad we stayed there, much quieter is what we needed and the hotel is also at what we felt to be the better end of cala bona with a very cool bar/ pizzaria called Penetosto overlooking the sea which was well frequented by Germans and Dutch as well as the Brits.
The hotel is exceptionally well run, the catering / bar and cleaning staff were faultless ( thanks Miguel for always making our daughter laugh) . The downside, and it is almost certainly a deal breaker for us was the Butlins style "entertainment". If you want peace and quiet, having a 19 year old female shrieking into her microphone " in just 5 minutes time...... " every 10 minutes whilst lying by the pool trying to grab a doze just isn't what we, and I suspect many families with pre school aged children wanted. We had travelled after the schools had gone back specifically to avoid the noisy season.
I guess we might have underestimated the "Thompson" effect and hats off to the hotel for the for the job they do. I don't really do going back to the same place because there are plenty of places in the world I'll never have the time to visit, but we will not return despite the quality of the hotel staff.
By the way- quietest blocks with a lovely view of the hills are the far ones in block 4 and 5. Morning coffee ( self supplied) on the terrace overlooking them was an absolute highlight of the holiday.
