Previously read these great reviews, so booked this hotel with confidence. We had a thoroughly excellent time at this hotel, and even though our second week was the last week before the winter closure, the staff, all of them, never let their standards slip and were cheerful and very polite right up to the closure.
The food was very good with lots to choose from, the pool area and its position was one the best I have ever encountered with fantastic sun beds, there was no reserving of sun beds with the poolside towels!! The room is a little on the small side, but not a problem. To say there is only one lift available we found it to be very quick and efficient.
This is an adult only hotel and we found that all the other guests were extremely friendly and it made for a very good atmosphere, with a number of guests having stayed here on several occasions!!
On the entertainment side and as previously mentioned Natalie was an absolute star and also kept it going right up to the end, she is the best Daffodil to come out of Wales.
Must also mention Heather the Thomson's rep who was very helpful.
Cala Bona / Cala Millor is a nice place and very flat for walking.

I booked a holiday here just glancing at the reviews which appeared to be very good, only after I had paid did I feel a little worried. OK so I am a 60 plus oldie myself but do I want to join in a lot of games and activities and spend my time in a poky room photographed by another reviewer with a tiny balcony?

Not to worry I didn't have to, we were given a room on the first floor which would have overlooked the sea if the trees weren't in the way, it was perfectly nice but very small, I think all the rooms are the same size. We did have a bit of a job storing our luggage and ended up lining the cases up opposite the bathroom.

The pool area is good and the snacks and drinks cheap. A bottle of wine in the dining room is about 6 euros.

Natalie was brilliant she put on plenty of activities for those who liked to join in.

The food was very good in my opinion but I spoke to a couple who hated it, all I can go on is my other half who moaned for a week when we were near Almeria earlier this year, but at the Bonamar he loved it, and of course he is used to my own delicious home cooking.

The room TV had all the main channels for those who like to keep up with the soaps.

The TV room had Sky sports for football fans.

You can hire pool towels quite cheaply so don't bother taking any.

I thought the entertainment was good, but again some didn't like Elvis, whereas I hated Robbie Williams, the best was the guy from Leeds.

All the staff very pleasant, especially room cleaner.

I hate myself for being a Brit abroad but Stanley's tea rooms is just great.

Would I go back? Definately.

We returned from the Bonamar on oct 11th after spending 10 nights there.It was our 4th year running as we have always had a great time there.As always good food excellent service from all the very friendly staff .We have made very good friends there and were very upset and indeed quite angry to find out that we wont be able to go again next year.As me and my husband always go with our friend who is a widow and so has a room on her own.We will no longer be able to book through the hotel and as Thomsons will not do single supplements it means that the holiday in October that we always look forward to will be no longer.As you can see I am not very happy with Thomsons.But thanks again to all the lovely staff for some happy memories

We arrived at this hotel on the 29th September to chaos at the airport due to floods - we did not see any Reps in the airport at all - were all outside!!
We had to wait over an hour before finally moving - we arrived at the Bonamar 65 minutes later
This hotel is small - which is just the way we like it
We read the reviews on here & agree with most of what has been said
The rooms are small
The staff are very friendly
Natalie is great at getting the party started
The snacks & drinks are cheap - realy do not have to leave hotel at all
But the food in the restaurant was fabulous - we went for 10 nights & every meal we enjoyed & the breakfasts are brilliant - we put on loads of weight
No kids
Great location between Cala Millor & Cala Bona
Plenty of sunbeds & umbrellas
What we did find funny was that this was UK only tourists & they still put towels on sunbeds early in the morning - not he germans as is usually thought!!!!
The cleanliness in this hotel was exceptional
The clientelle are of an older generation - we are 49 & 50 & we were the youngest the first week!!!! But this did not matter - all the guests were great
We had the best sea view in the hotel & paid 10 euros a night for it - but cannot do this next year. Thomsons have locked this hotel into a contract - so unfortunately everything has to be booked with them & not the hotel - so will cost more!
Would we go again - definitely!!!!

Room Tip: Sea view room is a must - on the top floor (411)

the staff of this hotel make you feel very welcome. The location is ideally situated between Cala Bona and Cala Millor. The rooms are a touch on the small side but perfectly adequate and kept clean by housekeeping.

Room Tip: We had a sea view room overlooking the gardens and it was wonderful

We have just returned from another fantastic week at the Bonamar. This was our 3rd visit and 2nd for our daughter. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. I would particularly like to mention Natalie, she was brilliant and the nightly bingo was great fun, my daughter even won a cocktail on our first night and I won a protty the beaver baseball cap and my husband won a protty the beaver t shirt. Also a mention for Jose who recognised us and made us very welcome. This is a superb hotel and will definately be back. The hotel management should be very proud of all their staff as they do a wonderful job. By mistake this year I booked a triple garden view room instead of a sea view room but that didn't matter as the room was still good and gave a view of the sea.

During our stay we ate at the Waterfront restaurant for lunch, service was very good and all staff were friendly. We also has Tapas at Chirio's which was excellent and a litre of Sangria for 4 euros 80 ( cheapest in Cala bona, and good).
