bonaire cala bona meals upgrade?

Hi were travelling on 25th april 2010 does anybody know if you can upgrade from self catering to half board or all inclusive at the bonaire in cala bona and how much it costs per day please for 2 adults & 2 kids aged 14 and 10 (would the 14yr old be classed as adult or child price for upgrade). Also any recommendations as to which would be the best block to request would be most appreciated. Also in the rooms is there a kettle/hairdryer etc (booked ryan air and only have 10kg luggage allowances). Also does anybody know what the parkings like at the hotel? any info regards the above or any other advice would be mostly appreciated

Hi,

we got back yesterday from the Bonaire, yes there is a kettle in the kitchen and a hairdryer in the bathroom. I cannot help you with the half board question but I would imagine that you can upgrade when you get there as most hotels allow you to do this.

The Bonaire are great apartments, very clean and a lovely pool area.

thank you weve only booked a really cheap 5 day break with ryan air flights so are restricted to a small suitcase only weighing 10kg each so knowing i can leave the travel kettle & hairdryer at home will free up quite abit of space in the tiny suitcase.

Could i ask if there was much entertainment on in the evenings whilst you were there, and does cala bona have much in the line of shops etc - weve been to alcudia and cala'dor in the past but never cala bona - also somebody said the beach wasnt very good in cala bona, but as long as the seas clear and theres sand and the suns out were happy with that

Hi,

there is some entertainment on at the hotel, tribute bands, magic show etc and the usual bingo which is worth playing because the full house prize was sometimes nearly 200 euros!!!

Cala Bona was very quiet in the evenings and many of the restaurants aren't open in the evening yet. If you read my earlier post ( Cala Bona at Easter) I have commented on a few places to eat and one where not to eat?

There are some shops in Cala Bona and a small shingle beach, Cala Millor is a 20 mins walk away and there are plenty of shops there and a lovely beach.

Hi, We have been to the Bonaire several times, there is a good sized car park,reasonable entertainment,a good pool but the best beach is at Cala Millor. You can upgrade to half board or on a daily basis...pay as you go..

Ask for a pool view .

We are going back in May having been there last year and loved it. You can pay as you go in the restaurant though we only ate there once,not a fan of buffets. Can't remember the price,think it was €13 per adult for dinner and half that for children. Think the age for children was 12 but again not 100% sure.Lots of lovely places to eat in Cala Bona. There is no beach as such in Cala Bona. We had a hire car (also went with Ryanair as Thomson don't go from Dublin) and found it as cheap to rent a car as the airport transfers would have cost the same. Therefore when we wanted a change from the pool we hopped in the car and drove to one. Our kids were only 3 and 1 then so wouldn't walk to Cala Millor beach. Lots of parking at hotel.

Entertainment every night (and day) in the hotel but don't think it officially starts till May so not sure about April.

Cala Bona is a small harbour resort,not much in the way of shops,just souvenir ones and small supermarkets,but Cala Millor is a good bit bigger and if you have car you can drive anywhere on the island including Palma and Manacor for the best shopping.

Have a great time :)
