We've just returned from our second stay at the Bonaire (our first being 2 years ago) and yet again we weren't disappointed with this wonderful hotel, all geared up with families in mind. I emailed in advance to request the same room, or same block (4) if possible, and we were given the room next door, which was very clean and had everything we needed. Our kids were constantly entertained, be it at the splash pool, Kids club or Drop in club, and all the reps did a fantastic job. We were self catering again, so can't comment on the food at the hotel, but Cala Bona is a beautiful resort and there are plenty of lovely places to eat.
We hired a car for three days from the hotel (or Protur cars) and the book on the reception desk details the prices, along with daily offers; however be aware that these are changed daily. These were very well priced and included everything we needed, so I would recommend this to see more of beautiful Majorca. This allowed us to see the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, the Soller train, and we found some lovely beaches, particularly Cala Mesquida and Cala de Sant Vicent.
We did two trips through Thomson - Palma Cathedral , which isn't badly priced, and the Pirates Adventure which was brilliant. We booked the main deck seats but were able to upgrade to Quarterdeck at the venue at a cheaper price than charged by Thomson. However, regardless of the seat, we would definitely do this again.
The only thing that lets this hotel down is the air conditioning - on several occasions it was cooler on the balcony than in the room, and one night it broke altogether, which led to a bad night's sleep. It turned out it had gone off in the whole block, and it was fixed later that day. I just wish that we could control it ourselves.
We aren't sure whether we will return here but that is a personal preference that we like to try new places, and it was unusual for us to go one place twice! But overall this is a cracking hotel, ideal for families, and especially ideal if this is your first time abroad with little ones.
If you have booked this, I hope you have a great time!
