Had a fab time at this hotel - perfect for a long weekend. Welcomed with a glass of Fizz and Hotel Manager personally came and greeted us and explained elements of the hotel. Buffett Restaurant was lovely - lots of fresh seafood which I love as well as salads and so many choices. Evening Bars were great and entertainment was... More

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

We stayed for two weeks with our children in bonanza playa. We had fantastic stay. The staff is very friendly, the food is fantastic and we love the area. I work in a 5 star hotel in Amsterdam and have seen a lot of hotels. This hotel is absolute absolute to recommend!

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

The staff here are fantastic, always friendly and willing to try and help you if they can. Unfortunately they couldn't make up for the issues we had. I don't know why everyone goes on about the Germans here, there's nothing wrong with them. We stayed in a Presidential Suite, it had nice views, it was nicely done out, good looking... More

We found this hotel on internet at it was first time for us in Palma and we have not been disappointed. We spent 4 days in this hotel in July 2014. Access: The hotel is not too far from the airport by taxi - 20 minutes (takes a bit more time by public transportation) and in a quiet area. The... More

Had a fabulous week at this hotel - everything about it was perfect. Staff were excellent - food was very good - short bus ride to wonderful Palma and a host of fabulous shops and restaurants. We were reluctant to leave it was so good and will definitely return, hopefully in the near future.
