We stayed for a weekend and were really impressed with this place. Twenty minutes away from the airport located on a hillside in Illetes directly at the sea the hotel sports a rocky beach (good snorkeling) with a small sandy beach patch and a large pool for families as well as one for adults only. The rooms all have sea... More

We stayed 4 nights (15-19 August) with our 3 children at the Hotel Riu Palace Bonanza Playa. We were lucky to get adjoining rooms. The rooms were small but clean and we had beautiful views of the pool and sea. The staff were friendly and for the most part helpful. Breakfast was a huge buffet and it was overwhelming dealing...

Have stayed at the Bonanza Playa before and have always enjoyed the peaceful surroundings, but most of all its close proximity to Palma. Great for shopping trips and the local bus is very frequent, very cheap and stops right outside the door! The trip usually takes about 20 minutes. The food at the hotel is excellent, all the rooms have... More

After reading the many good reviews of this hotel we had decided to book. Unfortunately it did not quite meet our expectations, since they were somewhat higher after reading the reviews. The rooms seemed up to date, however to our surprise you enter the room through the bath room area, to get into the bedroom. The doors are of thin... More

I paid almost $300 US Dollars for this "4 star hotel" The room was old and HOT! AC barely cooled and housekeeping said that all room were pretty hot. The views of the ocean are nice but the beach is tiny and very uncomfortable. The pool was packed and no chairs available. I would highly recommend to NOT stay here.... More

This was our first visit to the Bonanza Playa and I must say that previous Tripadvisor reviews led me to book this hotel. First impressions were excellent with impeccable staff and with a glass of champagne to settle us in. The staff really are attentive and polite with nothing at all too much trouble. Choice of pools (one for adults... More
