“Perfect for families”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Just got home after spending a week 17th to 24th October 2013. I read all the reviews on here before we went and ignore any of the negative reviews, there is only a few but don't let them put you off. We have always done long haul holidays so we wasn't expecting much. Very impressed. We went self catering as we don't like being on a time scale when out and about exploring the area having to get back for evening meals etc and being able to eat wherever we fancied. Our apartment was better than we expected and bigger. There was myself and my husband and 2 children aged 7 and 5 and this was more than big enough. The kitchenette had an electric 2 ring hob, decent size fridge, can and bottle opener, blender, juicer, tea pot, pots and pans, microwave, toaster, kettle, tea towel. Air con was good and the bedroom had a seperate digital control so you could adjust the temp in there without the kids getting too cold/warm. In the bedroom there was our own wardrobe with shelves and a safe. Dressing table and 2 bedside tables. The main living area had 2 sofa beds which were big enough for adults to sleep on, dining table and chairs and a flat screen tv. There is no remote for the tv when you arrive to your room but you pay €10 at reception as a deposit and then at the end of your stay you take it back and then get your €10 back. At a guess people have knicked them in the past. Our room was in block 5 and room 5005 on the ground floor looking out onto the main pool and was an excellent location. The room looks very modern and I would guess only been revamped within the last 10 or so months and spotless. We never at at the hotel but speaking to others around the pool it seemed very reasonably priced. Kids has slush which was €1.85 and a beer was €3. On the harbour you would pay between €2 and €3 for a beer so for a hotel we didn't think it was too bad. Thomson reps were excellent and did loads for the kids as well as the adults and were always around it you needed anything, 10/10 for their hard work. Hotel staff excellent and very helpful too. Bar staff excellent and very hard workers, so friendly and never seem to expect a tip but when you do leave them one they are extremely grateful an even if you left 50 cents they can't thank you enough. The splash pool for the kids was great, my two thought it was the best thing ever with lots of water slides and the water was very shallow too. The water did seem very cold when you started paddling but once you was in it was fine and being October you would expect this. There was a indoor pool but we was happy to be outside. If you are thinking of eating out then try The Rope & Anchor a British pub and the food is excellent value for money, approx €30 for the four of us with drinks too. Down the road from the hotel is a BIP supermarket selling all british brands as well as local food and fresh bread baked daily. This is cheaper than the Spar shops. Even cheaper is Eroski in Calla Millor but if you are not into walking far then if you get the local open top city bus from near BIP this will take you into Calla Millor for €1.85. Where the bus stops cross the road and turn left at the T junction and you will see Eroski on your left. You can get a sliced loaf of bread there for 65cents and BIP will cost you €1.80. The orange sight seeing train is ok but going to calla millor you dont get to sightsee as it goes along the same route as the bus snd will cost you more than double. €10 for the four of us, kids enjoyec it but a bit of a rip off. Hope my review helps you and we will most definately stay at Bonaire again very soon I hope.

Room Tip: I would choose block 5 room 5005 again and again.

We are a retired couple in our sixties and just returned from a week's holiday at this Aparthotel.
We found the hotel to be very clean throughout and the grounds and areas surrounding the pool complexes very neat and tidy. We found all the staff extremely pleasant, cleaning staff, ground staff, restaurant staff and reception, nothing was too much trouble and our apartment was spotlessly clean and pleasantly furnished with modern fittings.A lot of people have complained in previous reviews about having to pay a deposit (returnable) for TV remote and pool towels etc. As these are refundable I do not understand what the problem is. There is a small charge if you wish to make use of the safe in room, but we felt it was worthwhile for peace of mind etc. All in all everything within apartment excellent, fridge, ceramic hob with 2 burners, microwave, toaster,kettle and adequate crockery and cutlery and utensils if you wished to self cater. We had chosen half board option which suits us best. We have slept on more comfortable beds, but they were ok and clean and the linen was changed twice in the week. The food was good with a large choice and quite honestly even the fussiest eater would have no problem finding something they liked. Sometimes the food could have been hotter, but this is always a problem with buffet restaurant, you cannot really compare to having food cooked to order. Desserts were excellent with a large choice. There is a separate children's buffet section.The restaurant is very child friendly, and we would be more than happy to go there with our small grandsons. There is plenty for children to do - swimming pools, entertainment in kids club etc, however, this did not affect us. We asked for a room in a quieter area of the complex if possible and our wishes were granted. We were in room 4309 which is in block 4, there are 5 blocks in all. This room was at the back of the complex over looking countryside and hills and a sport court where children and often dads were having fun kicking balls about etc.
The bus stop is about 5 minutes walk from hotel and you can go just about anywhere from there.This was our first visit to Majorca and we loved it, the temperature was around 26 degrees every day.
Now for the negative - the transfer from the airport to the hotel, we knew the time involved, that was not a problem, however, the coach provided was not one of the modern Thomson Holidays coaches, but was a tatty old white coach with air con that did not work, many people on the coach were uncomfortably hot due to the poor air con in the coach, we arrived feeling very hot and tired. However, the return coach transfer from hotel to airport was excellent, a nice modern air conditioned coach, if only we had that one for the incoming transfer! Apart from that everything excellent.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in a quiet location away from the lifts, we had apartment 4309 which was at the back...

First impressions are of a very clean & well managed hotel. The room was well equipped & furnished. Only criticisms we had were, it was on the first floor above the restaurant, and cooking odours were common, along with quite a lot of noise from the chair dragging clog dancers in the room above. Also the balcony was overlooked by many opposite & didn't get the sun until late afternoon. If we return we would certainly request a high floor to avoid these problems. That aside, the place was kept spotless with room cleaning done almost every day.

Cala Bona is a lovely small harbour with many good bars & restaurants however, to find a decent beach, it is around a 30 minute walk to neighbouring Cala Millor. The promenade between the two resorts is mostly pedestrianised but divided by a cycle lane which can be hazardous. Some cyclists treat it as a race track & it gets very busy!

Room Tip: Unless you have toddlers likely to climb over the balcony, request a high floor for more privacy &am...

Have just returned from a 11 day holiday at the Bonaire.Being pensioners we were a bit
worried.as it is a childrens hotel, but going in late October there were more pensioners
than children only babies and toddlers. The food was excellent plenty of variety and hot.
the entertainment was also excellent they were on the go from10am - till 11pm and did
not stop. All the staff could not do enough for you. The place was spotlessly clean.
would recommend to anyone and we would go back again.

Just returned from the Bonaire , this was our forth time in October school holiday week.
Cannot fault this hotel , great location, staff very welcoming, apartments spotless.
We did not sample the food as we were s/c and there are great places to eat around the harbour.
We were given a complimentary basket of fruit on arrival which was very much appreciated .
I asked for a room in block 5 , we arrived about 8 pm the staff had a room for us in block 5.
I loved the walk every morning down to the harbour .
It's a great family resort run by Thomsons, can't wait to return next year!

First time on an abroad holiday with our 2 children aged 5 and 2. Despite a bad start where my 5 year old picked up a stomach bug on the first day after being in the pool and swallowing water in there and us wishing we could go home, when he picked up we had a lovely time. The thomson rep that I asked for help with my son was not helpful at all and didn't really want to know, but the hotel receptionist (small dark haired spanish lady) was really lovely and helpful and advised me on many things (thankyou to you!!) . After he got over stomach bug we had wonderful time and really enjoyed the entertainment for the children. It really isn't our thing but we wanted to do it for the children and they loved thomson the dog and the entertainers... HUGE thumbs up to NUTTY NATHAN, who despite being at the end of a busy long session was still going for it 100% every night and the children loved him. Huge thanks to LAURA the EXPLORER, my son has never been to a kids club and I didn't think he would want to go , which was fine with us, but due to Laura being so lovely and him getting to know her dancing around the stage and around the pool doing activities, on the last day my son asked if he could go to the wild west kids club and then the chocolate party as Laura would be there, and he enjoyed both.
Hotel was lovely and clean, we were not all inclusive but food we had around pool was quite nice.
Didn't think a huge amount to the resort and the beach wasn't very picturesque but we had fun hiring a four seater bike.
Would recommend this hotel to all young families
