Booked through Thomson Holidays for 23rd - 30th July 2006.
Stayed in Block 3 (partial pool view). 3rd floor.
We had booked this holiday almost a year ago (due to how popular it was and the reports on tripadvisor).
Arrived about 1.30pm. The external view of the Bonaire is quite impressive. Streight into Reception - was sorted immediately and within minutes a member of staff was taking our cases to the room. My Daughter was issued with a kiddies pack.
This has to be the highlight and lowlight of the entire holiday. Highlight - has to be one of the biggest pools I have seen - plenty of room for everyone (including all of the boats and lilo's that everyone takes in!!!). Lowlight - If you want a sunbed your towel has to be on the bed by 7.15 am or you have no chance. If you want shade in the form of one of the numerous brolleys then you have to have your bed reserved by 6.15 am (or even earlier)!! I remember looking down one day from our balcony at 5.30am and it was like watching ants sorting out the beds!!!
Very friendly Staff - all the waiters work very friendly and always look as through they have just come out the swimming pool as they are soaked in sweat.
Food / Dining Room
The food available is of a very good standard for a Typical Spanish Hotel, however, if you have travelled extensively before (and dont normally take a Spanish type of holiday you may well be disappointed). The waiting staff in the dining room are ok. Value For Money - If I had to come back then I wouldnt pre book the food option but would buy the vouchers from Reception when I wanted to use them as the food did become very repetative!
The Entertainment Team worked hard, but the external entertainment was very disappointing. There was 4 professional acts during our week. Russian Circus - was good, at times a little slow: E-Box (magician) - wow doesnt get any worse than this! : Madonna Tribute - excellent, get your seat early and dont go shopping when this is on. : Lionel Ritchie - Not my cup of tea.
The weekly Reps show was very good, well organised and better than some of the Professional Acts dodnt miss it.
Clean, tidy and basic.
These apartments / hotel is classed as 4 star. - Equivalent to a 2 star in the UK. Holiday itself was good, however, value for money - definately NOT. paid over £2,000 for 1 week for 4 of us (due to excessive prices as during school holidays).
