We stayed at the RIU Palace Bonanza on a short break (3 nights/4 days) booked through Travel Republic.We travelled to the RIU from Palma airport by taxi which is a cost of around 30 euros.
First impressions were that this is a well above average hotel, greeted with a lass of Champagne and nibbles while our room was prepared as we had arrived early.
The rooms are modern, contemporary and very clean. The views out to sea and the bay and coastline of Palma are gorgeous...a proper sea view.
We were booked only for B&B but the breakfast menu was vast and service and restaurant excellent, no waiting for coffee here.
The pool and sun bed area had plenty of choices for sun worshippers, with waiter services and a great little pool side restaurant for when the sun and heat gets too much, and it did..even in mid/late October. The animation team is not very big and the list of things they provide is limited but this has more to do with the type of holiday maker at this hotel which does not seem to consist of many children and caters for a more mature adult environment. This is not Magaluf.
The staff here are great and more than helpful and after my partner fell down some steps at a nearby shopping precinct (avoid the Pharmacy at the bottom of the hill from the hotel - , couldn't even advise nor help with a head wound, preferring to serve customers than lend advise/help when there was clearly a more serious issue) provided us with a free meal on our return from hospital, all with a smile.
All in all a fantastic hotel in a quiet part of Majorca, not much to do here but chill. If you want to mix in some nightlife, Palma is a 10-15 euro taxi ride away. Enjoy!
