“Just a couple of niggles.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

I hadn't been to the Cala Bona Hotel for almost 20 years and I must say I was pleasantly surprised, the hotel has had a fabulous face lift, everywhere is bright and modern, but it still retains the friendly atmosphere of old. I was disappointed that our standard room didn't provide a hairdryer, we had to hire one, we also hired a fridge and kettle. I found the food excellent and all was delicious. The staff at the hotel are really friendly especially the restaurant staff. The pool area is great, with an outside bar. At night the entertainment was varied, I particularly liked Abba Mia and The Temptations. All in all it was an excellent holiday, the hotel was let down by housekeeping, we didn't get our bins empty for a couple of days and had to ask for them to be emptied, also I was there for two weeks and my sheets were never changed, into the start of the second week everyday I thought they'd get changed, then it became to close to leaving for them to be done.

It's been 15 years since our last visit and what a wonderful change, we had a superior room and this proved to be all we expected, great wet room good beds and tastefully presented.
Food choice was very good and did not hear one complaint!
The staff are very friendly and helpful, the pool area is great with the bar serving drinks and food all day the staff are very entertaining with Mike being the star!
Thoroughly recommend the Cala Bona Hotel.

Room Tip: A superior room in the reception block near the pool and restaurant.

Just returned after a wonderful week of relaxation. The accommodation was excellent, we had
a superior room overlooking the pool, 418, ideal for all facilities.
Food was good and excellent service throughout the hotel.
Will definitely return for another holiday in Hotel Cala Bona.

Room Tip: Superior rooms on the pool side.

We stayed May 19th-29th, this was our 4th stay at the Cala Bona and as always we had a great holiday, the food is beautiful there is always so much choice and the rooms we usually stay in had under gone a full refurb making them superior rooms, They were very tastefully done with a spacious wet room but our only negative would be the lack of drawer space (before there were ample drawers) and no mirror over dressing table in main room to do hair and make up.
The staff as always work so hard and such long hours but they are always smiling and friendly and go out of their way to make sure you have a good holiday, especially Jordie & Michael.on the bar, Sebastian the Matre De does all in his power to make sure you enjoy mealtimes and the reception Staff, Christine, Patrica, Isabelle, and the lovely Tomeu are always happy to sort out any problems.
Another big plus is the Quality of entertainment every night is superb and all free. We cant wait to go back in September.

Room Tip: Rooms in reception block are all superipr and are quiet. And the pensions which are in a separate bl...

This hotel was lovely and very friendly. One thing I would like to point out was we had electrical storm when there in June and ended up with power failures all afternoon. lifts were out for a couple of hours which was not good if you had disabled people with you and you were on the 3rd floor. Reception staff kept saying will be sorted in 20 mins to people and I was sat in reception area for hour and nobody came to sort lifts out!

Entertainment in hotel was brilliant and plenty of choice for food.

Room Tip: Superior rooms were good but with 3 people in not enough wardrobe space.

just got back from the hotel cala bona from 31/5/14 to 7/6/14.have to say it was one of the best hotels we have stayed in for entertainment and service.every night was great especially the Temptations tribute and also the brilliant Sundaes girls group. would also like to say that the food was great with enough variety to suit all tastes.
the hotel is made up of four blocks spaced around the harbour area the main block which housed the reception,dining room and swimming pool was approached via a back street,the main bar facing the harbour and two further blocks on either side of the hotel catalonia consul which did seem strange at first but did seem to work out ok even though we were in the block furthest away.
the harbour area is beautiful and in the evenings there was always street entertainment going on.the hotel had a lovely terrace area that we sat out on on several occasions.
the cala bona area is ideal for people with walking dificulties as it is flat and only a 15min walk to the busier resort of Cala Millor. lovely hotel and altogether brilliant hotel

Being a American I can only say that the hotel would get a 2 star rating due to the fact that
the pool is not heated and at dinner time you had to buy your water, soda or juice to drink
with your meal @ 2 euros for water is a crime its just a shame how they nickel and dime you.
Our room should of had a sea view which we payed for but if you looked out you saw another
building. Cannot blame the Spaniards, since they must of learned the nickel and diming from
Thomson since that is what they do even on their flights to the resort.The staff at the hotel
were excellent.We stayed for 2 weeks,end of april into may '14.

Room Tip: Don't fall for the sea view.
