Reviewed January 23, 2013

Stayed here from 22nd August for two weeks. Asked for a pool view room, but to be honest I didn't expect it, and didn't get it on the first night. But the next day when asking at reception for a fan, she remembered I had asked for a pool view and said there would be one available later on that afternoon. I thought that was really nice and was a lot happier cause the rooms facing the pool are bigger and cooler as it was very hot with no air con.

The hotel was spotless, all the staff very friendly, pool area adequate enough and very clean. Entertainment in the hotel was better than the bars in the resort, Ben Stafford is a must see :-) .

Cala bona itself is very quiet, not much going on of a night, so not very good for teenagers. Sandancers bar at the back of the hotel was great, lovely staff, very friendly. They had karaoke every night, parties, a comedian, disco and all the football. There is a chinese buffet not far from sandancers that is fantastic. All you can eat, they even have sushi and frogs legs!! Gorgeous food though, think it was about €9 pp. The rope and anchor on the harbour is great for sunday roasts, also Janet and Johns. Bike hire is a must too, and very cheap. Think twice about going on the horse riding trip on the bonanza ranch. Unorganised chaos, and us never having been on a horse before were petrified. Even though we told them we were inexperienced they just basically leave you to it. When arriving back at the ranch (thank god) they expect you to control the horses yourself, everybody was getting dragged everywhere, so we just let them go which we got shouted at for! One man got kicked really badly.

All in all though, for what we paid (£1200 for two weeks, in the school hols, with flights for three), we got a fantastic hotel, in a beautiful place and had a ball. The only reason I wouldn't go back is because it's way too quiet for us.

We made this booking at the last minute and had a nice surprise after reading the reviews and seeing it was only classed as 1 star. We found the staff friendly and help fuii. The rooms where cleaned 6 days out of 7 with fresh towels every day. It certainly deserves more than one sfar.

I am now in my 2nd week at this Hotel so there's a plus side anyway, it's got Wi-Fi. Very pleasant family run Hotel, I, like so many other's, was a little bit wary after having read mixed reviews, which must have referred to previous owner's, the present owner's took it on in 2010. I can honestly say I am thoroughly enjoying my stay here, I am on Half Board, the food is good and plenty of it, there's a decent sized pool outside with a children's part, a tennis court and gym for the like minded! To say it is only a one star is definately an injustice, I shall definately be booking again, as long as they are not booked up!
