Riu Palace Bonanza Playa is located in the enviable front line to the sea, in the beautiful bay of Palma, in Illetas. All our rooms offer beautiful sea views and balcony. It is renowned for its incredible views, pool literally next to the sea, excellent food and impeccable service. Enjoy your stay in a hotel just next few minutes from Palma and few minutes walking to the beach, our nearest beach is Illetas, only 5 minutes walking. The hotel also has direct access to the sea just next to our pool. From the great location on the island there is easy access to Palma for shopping, visiting many of the galleries and museums, or sampling some of the fantastic restaurants. We also have a good relationship with a lot of the nearby Golf courses, one of which, The Bendinat gives our customers 10% off. The Riu Palace Bonanza Playa is the perfect place to stay to relax, enjoy, be pampered or explore.

Pleasant stay in Palace Bonanza Playa

Me and my husband spent around 8 days in this hotel and enjoyed it a lot. What we enjoyed was the two pools, one that was more quiet and for adults only, great idea. There is no beach connected to the hotel, but its possible to swim in the sea and it was really nice, but if you want to have a real beach with sand, you need to go further down the road and find another place. The room was good, looked newly renovated and once you had gotten used to that the bathroom was also the hall way it worked fine, good space in the wardrobe and a nice balcony with views over the sea and Palma in the distance. The breakfast was for me ok, not fantastic but ok, its gets very busy in the morning and although theres everything you need, I personally prefer less things but a bit more quality.. But I understand that in a big hotel like this its not possible and they need to cater for all customers. I would have liked to have some more local produce, like some nice fruits from the island etc. The hotel itself looked ok, a bit old fashioned but clean and tidy, I did feel that the look of the rooms and the rest of the hotel didn't really match, the rooms have a modern contemporary look and the rest of the hotel feels a bit out dated, but as I am an Interior designer it might just be that i look too much into details. My husband thought it looked fine:) The staff was helpful and friendly. The area we found nice, we did have a rental car and made some tours around the island by ourselves but we also just stayed in the area and had walks down to the beach club and restaurants along the road, I believe its quite easy to get around either by bus or by taxi as there was both around the hotel. There are supermarkets within walking distance. Some small things that we didn't know about is that you have to pay the parking if you have a car, I don't remember the exact amout but its around 10 euro per day, and if you want a safe in the room you have to pay I think 16 euro. For the parking I guess I can understand it, but I have never had to pay for a safe in the room, and i have stayed in a lot of hotels… Its not a lot of money, but still, I think in a four star hotel, this should be included. I would for sure go back here again, we were here in September and it was not too many people, not sure i would go in the middle of the summer, but at this time you still feel that you can relax and it doesn't feel too crowded (except at breakfast time:)

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Our favorite restaurant within a short walking distance was called El Parral, it had a family feeling to it and you get a lot of food on your plate,and they have nice wines too. It feels like its local food, and if you are like us and prefer to try some local stuff and not the burgers and fast food type of food then you should give this a try.

Good Choice !!

Location is absolutely Top! We're there for four days, and will back as soon as we can! Pool deck in perfect place, lots of room, and right on the water. Rooms are new and super clean. Breakfast was also nice! For dinner I don't know- never ate there. If you want 4 days swimming, tanning, and peace - this is the best deal on the island. Good mix of people too- solid , not pretentious - this is what I like.

Pretty good restaurants are also about 500 - 900 meters away! Go there or if you have a rental car - downtown Palma for a great burger at the Hard Rock Cafe , or a good fish at most places near the cathedral

Great week

This hotel has incredible staff and service. It's pretty big and was full last week when we stayed. The adults only pool was a haven as you could have a little more space and it was quieter - the main pool was heaving and the seating area could do with being bigger but you could find a few quieter spots. Rooms have been nicely refurbished but I think the hotel have missed a trick by doing away with the bathtub. Would certainly stay again though.

A little more privacy

Only slight downside, the refurbished rooms. Beautiful to look at and be in but "form over function" would probably best describe the layout. Glass doors for loos and showers, although tastefully made a little opaque, in the bathroom/dressing room area, did nothing for privacy and the trendy wash basin on the on the dressing table was neither use nor ornament. Otherwise a superb hotel.

Our stay at this hotel was fantastic. Our room overlooked the ocean and the pool. They serve lunch at pool side. They have a cook who will grill your meat or fish on request. One day I had the grilled squid and the next day I ordered the grilled sardines. They were both outstanding. Their daily breakfast was great also. We had an early departure so we asked for a 4:00a.m wake-up call. To our surprise they asked if we wanted breakfast before we left. They had coffee, toast and cereal for us at 4:30a.m. in their main dining room. What customer service. Loved this hotel

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

They sell postcards and stamps at the hotel, just outside the beauty salon. I didn't have to look for a post office.
