Protur Aparthotel Bonaire
This award-winning aparthotel delivers plenty for families, including a river-style pool and a splash park.
This place has a long and winding main pool. Better still, there’s a children’s splash park with chutes, slides and a giant pirate ship. On the dining front, you can choose from a buffet place and an Italian.
The hotel’s about a two-minute walk from a small sand-and-shingle beach. Meanwhile, the centre of Cala Bona is about a 10-minute walk away, and it’s a little further to Cala Millor, a bigger resort.

There's plenty of thrills and spills for little ones in their own splash pool.
The outdoor pool comes with a large sun terrace so there's loads of room for sunbeds and parasols. Palm trees are dotted along its edge, giving that bit of extra shade during the day. Pool towels are available here too.

Excellent family hotel, hightly recommend
We have just come back from a week stay here and thoroughly enjoyed it. We went self catering which worked perfectly for us. There is a Lidl's 15 mins away and a BIP supermarket a few 100 meters down the road. The small spar close by is fairly expensive so def worth walking only a bit further to BIP. The main restaurant seemed expensive at the hotel but a few days we ate at the poolside bar which was lovely! Approx 7-8 euros for a fresh pizza and 3-4 euros for a kids meal. It was all lovely, cooked fresh and hot. After reading some reviews we were apprehensive about the location but we were really happy with it. Cala Bona itself is a lovely small marina but with plenty of shops / restaurants then there are shops and restaurants all the way from there into Cala Millor which is approx. a 20-25 minute walk. Cala Millor has a lovely sandy beach. The beach at Cala Bona is shingly but still pleasant enough. The hotel is fantastic. Very clean and everything is nicely spaced out so doesn't feel cramped. No rush for sunbeds at all but this may be different at peak times. The pools are great, fairly cold but that is to be expected in May. The pirate ship area is great for kids and nice it is away from the main pool area for people who want a bit more peace. The apartments are a decent size, we were on the top floor of block 5 overlooking the pool. There was a lift so no dragging cases up and down the stairs! It was quiet and great being able to see the pool lit up in the evening. The TUI reps at the hotel are awesome. Super friendly and helpful. A good range of daytime activities as well as the evening entertainment. My daughter loved the kids club! Great it was free and only 2 hour sessions at a time. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel and we will definitely be back!More
Protur Bonaire Aparthotel (May 2019)
Just came back from a lovely family holiday at Protur Bonaire. On arrival staff were polite and friendly, they gave us our room card, and explained how the free WiFi was accessed. Apartment was immaculate and the maid was impeccable at cleaning the room throughout the week. The apartment had a kettle 2 hobs for cooking a microwave a tv with various uk, Spanish and German channels too I believe. I was also surprised to learn they had a Sky sports channel with the live sport 👍. The bathroom had complimentary shower cream and there was a safety deposit box in the room(charge for this). The balcony was spacious enough and very picturesque with the view of the sea, mountains and swimming pool area. We stayed in room 3302 if anyone is interested, it’s in block 3 on the top floor and there is also a lift if you don’t like the steps. TUI staff were very entertaining and enthusiastic. My son is a little older now but they were good at what they do. Cala Bona is a beautiful area even though it was really quiet but it was early season in May. We went to “Smiffys” for food and the “Rose and Anchor” both had polite staff and the service was quick and very tasty. We didn’t eat out every night, we were self catering and went on a shop trip twice. There is a huge supermarket next to Lidl in Cala Millor which is dirt cheap and has absolutely everything you’d need. But be aware it’s a 5 mile round trip on foot. ( I like walking though). Cala Millor is the resort next to Cala Bona, it has a huge range of shops and designer clothes too. It also has a beautiful coast walk which is about 4 miles long. Beware of the bicycle track!!! Temperature was warm, about 23c all week but chilly at night, you’d need a warm top with you. (Again we travelled in May). I’d happily return to Protur Bonaire. It’s a beautifully unique hotel which is full of character. It has a large pool, and kids pool around the back of the complex. It has a well equipped gymnasium which I loved using every morning (free too), A football court and volleyball available. Would love to return here. We were self catering so I can’t comment on hotel food as we sorted ourselves out in that regard. Hope we can return one day. Beautiful hotel. More
Chilled family holiday location
If you are looking for somewhere to take kids of primary school age or below, this is a lovely option. In a short summary the hotel and general area is clean, most people you meet are really child friendly, the beaches have free to use clean toilets (also disabled friendly, though no baby changing), the hotel has good facilities for children and the Tui entertainment team are fantastic, even if you don't join in with the entertainment they really do make four feel welcome. The Food We came here on an all inclusive basis and generally had good meals. We did find lunch disappointing for us adults though, and near impossible with our one year old. It seems they think you will use the snack bar with kids so put the more familiar food out there (chips, pizza etc). In fact, outside of breakfast time (best brekkie ever) it really was a struggle to feed a one year old who is fussy. I'd like to see more of a family friendly menu at lunch times and generally more simple foods to help the toddlers out like mash potatoe, cauliflower cheese, small pasta shapes etc. Saying that, we did see some young guests having some special order food taken to them which was a nice touch, we just wish we knew this was available. Also would have been nice if the drink menu was more obvious and some special cocktails available. The facilities Splash park was lovely but probably more suited to the ages 3 and over due to the depth of the water. The park is nice, it's pretty much just slides but all of the children seemed to love it. I just wish the park was a no drink zone, I hated having to drag my little boy away from people's drinks lined up by the benches or on the sides, he shouldn't have to be told off because parents are unable to stop drinking for half an hour to supervise their kids. The indoor pool was a fab warm place to swim with little ones and having soft play is a nice touch. The staff Most of the staff we came across here were amazing, no matter where they worked they were super welcoming to my little one as well, even a chef made a huge fuss of him. A big shout out to Vanessa in the main restaurant who we unfortunately didn't get chance to say goodbye to, my little boy loved her. He would watch her working every meal time she was there, she really made meal times for him, I can't thank her enough for cheering him up and making his day. The only issue is we did have a maid knock and come in our room with the do not disturb sign up, this only happened once, but it really shouldn't happen at all. As for the Tui staff, they were brilliant, especially the guy and girls sorting the daily entertainment. They were honestly just there to make your holiday fun and it was so nice they didn't pressure you to join in. The rooms These were perfect for a family, kitchen area even though we were all inclusive was fab, made life with a one year old easy. Enough space to spread out. Only annoying thing is the maids would always shut the curtains, why? We found our room a little chilly on cooler days (as you'd expect) so wanted the sun light in. The area Supermarkets are a short walk away, head for the Bip (out of the hotel to the right) for more choice on food. Cala Bona beach is a 5-10 min walk away, great sand and facilities, not the best for paddling though. Cala Millor beach is a 30 min walk or a land train (from just outside the hotel) away, it's lovely, great sea and sand plus facilities. There is a beach if you head left out of the hotel and walk for half an hour which the land train also goes to, the beach is quiet and the sea is nice but it's more like a shingle beach and very dusty. There's a place to get all sorts of boats rides from in the harbour which is 5 minutes away, you can do some sort of boat trip or use as a taxi to other places. There are lots of places to eat, drink and shop along the coast from Cala Bona to Cala Millor too, plenty of choice. Other than that, it really is an area for families or the retired, it's all quite slow paced and no real party scene. Well done if you read all that! Overall a super holiday and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to a friend or even return myself if I decided to break tradition and return to a hotel for a second time.More
2nd stay at the hotel so we knew what to expect. You really can't fault the apartments for space. Really good for a family of 3. The place is kept clean and tidy and the staff are really helpful and friendly. I would agree with some travellers that the mattresses need an upgrade. Since our visit in 2016 I would say the food quality has dipped particularly compared to Delfin Azul where we stayed last year. On a Spanish night you would expect to see tapas and Spanish omelette but the only Spanish food was a paella. Improve the menu and I would give a 5 star review. It just got a bit repetitive and boring in the 2 weeks. Overall though the Bonaire gives a good base. We didn't use the lounge as we walked into Cala Bona in the evening so can't comment on the entertainment. Would definitely go back for the right price. More
Great for Families
Spent 7 days here AI with our 3 year old boy and we've been very happy. The entire hotel very clean and the rooms are comfortable and well equipped. The food is pretty good for mass catering although lunch has been a bit hit and miss. Breakfast is brilliant and you'll always find something to eat at dinner. All staff are friendly and accommodating. TUI entertainment staff are around to keep kids and adults occupied if that's your thing. My only criticism are regarding the pools. Although very clean they are also very cold. The splash pool for the babies is the coldest. Our son had to abandon play at times shivering with blue lips. Even in warm weather (23c) play was limited to 20 mins before a warm up was needed. Otherwise a 5 * stay. Would I come back? Sure if they heated the pools, even just a little bit. It's the only thing that would stop be re-booking.More
