“what a lovely hotel”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

just come back from a 7nt stay at the Bonamar Hotel we had a lovely time every thing was spot on. the only drawback was there was never any sunbeds around the pool, but we didn't let it spoil our holiday, as we were not that bothered about laying by the pool all day, was plenty of lovely walks into Cala Bona we enjoyed walking to the harbour after our evening meal, as we were certainly well fed.

Room Tip: we were most satisfied with our room which was on the 1st floor. it was by the lift but we never hea...

this hotel is ideally situated between cala millor and cala bona ideal for walking in either direction as its all on the flat.its a very friendly hotel and spotlessly clean.the staff are very friendly and cheerful from the cleaners to the management.the manager is often seen checking the food in the restaurant .plenty of choice at breakfast ,evening meals are a bit hit and miss but there is always something to be found.rooms are small but comfortable.there are plenty of bars and restaurants around near the hotel..stanleys tea bar just down the road from the hotel is lovely also the little spar shop run by Eileen and pedro very popular for lunchtime rolls made to order. the hotel entertainment is organised by Natalie who does an outstanding job and is an asset to the hotel very friendly and cheerful always checking that the guests are alright nothing too much trouble for her.as mentioned in previous comments the sunbed situation was bad this year, a mad scramble at 7-30 to get a sunbed.this was our fourth year there and not seen it that bad before.but the managment did provide extra beds the garden area to help the situation .we have made many friends here over the last few years and look forward to seeing them all again next year .

Room Tip: garden rooms good if you prefer shade in afternoon , road rooms if you prefer sun in afternoon upgra...

This is a fairly decent hotel ruined by some, not all, of the regular returning guests. They think they own the place and try to take over! We have recently returned fom a 10 night stay and will most definitely not be returning. The 'regulars' think they have more right than other guests getting upset if THEIR sun beds in a certain position by the pool have been taken by non 'regulars' one actually said that in his opinion there should be a pecking order and the 'regulars' should have first pick and the 'others' should have what's left! There are not enough sun beds for all the guests and they are crammed in around the pool. There is a notice saying the pool area does not open until 8am but in reality it's open before 7.30 and all beds are gone by 8. We were told that people started waiting by the doors from 6.30 and when they were opened it was like a rush for the sales. Not entirely believing this we decided to find out for ourselves so went down the follow morning. The queue started at the pools doors and went right back to the reception doors, as soon as the pool doors were opened there was one almighty rush of people. How sad is this?
These 'regulars' we're always the first down for dinner to be sure they got the best seats for the evening entertainment,
The rooms are really small and the balconies are a joke. Ours measured approximately 7' wide with a depth of 4' tapering down to 18". The rooms have only two electric sockets; one in the bathroom and one in the main room, if you've hired a fridge this has to be unplugged if you wish to watch the TV or charge an appliance. For a charge of €10 per night you can upgrade to a sea view room; these rooms are much bigger with a good size balcony.
The hotel is extremely clean and the staff helpful and obliging. Natalie, the entertainment organiser works very hard to keep people entertained.
The food is hit and miss but we always managed to find something. The seafood night was particularly good.
The hotel is situated in a fantastic place, you are able to easily walk into the centre of Cala Bona or the other way into Cala Millor. There are plenty of restaurants and bars with decent entertainment if you don't want to stay in the hotel.
There's a SPA shop about 100yds from the hotel run by Eileen and Pedro, such a lovely couple, they make up fresh filled rolls of your choice for only €1.70, excellent value.
Perhaps not all returning guests behave the same as the ones we experienced, theses particular people return the same time every year and have already booked for next year, so the middle two weeks of July should be avoided.
We appreciate that what suits one doe not always suit another but this is a true reflection of our time there and after talking to a lot of first time visitors it was clear they felt the same way as us.
A lot of these reviews are done by returning guests, who knows they probably take the place over too!

Room Tip: Room upgrade advised

Just returned from our 8th stay at the Bonamar. Excellent hotel. Staff all excellent, friendly and will help you in anyway they can. Yes you have to pay a deposti for towels, remote control for the television, no problems as you get this back on day of departure. The pool area is lovely and plenty of sunbeds and parasols. Sea view room or garden view is a must, you do pay extra but well worth it.Natalie in charge of the entertainment is excellent , The hotel is in a great position for Cala Bona and Cala Millor . The Spar run by Eileen and Pedro is great for all your needs, and bread rolls made on request . Will be back in 2014 to this great hotel .

Room Tip: Sea view or garden view .

We returned to this hotel after a break of six years. We stayed for 2 weeks mid May when the weather was very changeable but we had a great holiday We were not at all disappointed with the hotel.. The pool area had been updated and there were plenty of sunbeds and parasols. The food was very good with plenty of choices. The only problem we had was the size of the rooms, as my husband has mobility problems. The entertainment was much improved thanks to Natalie.
