We stayed here for a week from 30 August - 6th September this year, booked it a few weeks before after reading some good reviews of the value and location. We were all inclusive. Its a huge complex of blocks which spreads over a large street (in fact pretty much all of the street is either the Protur Floriana or the Bahia Azul hotel / apartment across the road). Our room was very spacious with a large area for sitting with 2 sofa beds, large bathroom with a bath and separate shower and a very big bedroom with ample wardrobe / storage space. The balcony was also very big. For the accommodation the value was excellent. Unfortunately there were a lot of elements about the rest of the hotel that would put me off returning. the overwhelming problem was that 98% of the guests were German and also had children under 5 years. I have nothing against children - I am a Mum - but this really needs to advertised as a family only hotel. You couldnt move in the dining areas for children running around seemingly without any adult keeping an eye on them. 2 out of the 3 sun bathing areas with swimming pools were packed solid with families and children - to the point where you could hardly navigate your way safely around them and when eating lunch or dinner outside, you had to be careful the back of your chair didnt knock someones head who was laying on a sunlounger 5 centimeters away!
The food was OK - the Grill area was better and less busy however there wasnt enough seating outside. The main dining restaurant was very busy at all times and had a school dinner atmosphere. The food was very repititive and most of it was not labelled in English. Everything was self service (including coffee and tea in the morning which was out of a machine). Not great at all. I mean how expensive can it really be to actually make pots of fresh coffee and boil up pots of water to serve at breakfast? Wine, beer and all soft drinks were on draft at various machines dotted around the restaurants and bar area but drinking wine out of plastic cup is a bit 'holiday camp' for me. In fact I have hit the nail on the head it was like Butlins abroad.
The resort is lovely - Cala Bona Marina has lovely views out to sea and there are plenty of bars and restaurants to chill out and have a few drinks in. Prices were very reasonable and the service outside the hotel was excellent wherever we went.
I would return to Cala Bona but not to stay at the Floriana, much prefer the GranSol, Levante or Levente Park down along the coastline. More expensive but I believe you get what you pay for.
