Very nice and well equipped rooms. All personnel is very friendly and helpful. Every day a large variety of food and beverages can be chosen from the buffet. Location is OK, only a small distance to the beach and a small walk to the busstop. Breakfast and dinner can be taken as well outside as inside. We recommend this hotel for a pleasant stay in Palma.

Me and my wife have just come back from a weeks stay at the Rui festival hotel from when we set foot in the hotel until we left I can’t say one bad thing about the hotel every member of staff was helpful and polite with a smile on there faces nothing was to much trouble the reception staff went out of there way to help the cleaners did a great job bar and restaurant staff provided good friendly service I would not think twice about returning to the Rui festival mainly German tourists in the hotel and the resort but that was not a problem for us it made a bit of a change the food Was of a good standard and different choices each night we will be returning soon

Very good hotel, very helpful stuff, service was at very high level. Room and other areas in hotel was very clean. Towels were changed every day. You can also have an extra towel to take it to the beach. Food was great, fresh and rich. Everyone will find something suitable to eat. The hotel is situated near to the beach, shops, restaurants and bars. Only 20 minutes by bus to the center of Palma the Mallorca, and the ticket cost only 2 euro. The bus stop is located near to the hotel. The reception stuff will help you to rent a car. Parking in front of the hotel and in the nearest streets is free and there was no problem to park a car. Only 15 minutes from the airport by car. They have a suitcase room so you can leave the baggage if you have a flight late after check out. Although the check in at hotel is at 13 am, we arrived at 7 am because of the flight hours, we was invited for a breakfast what was very nice of the hotel stuff and the room was ready about 10 am, just after we ate the breakfast. It confirms that the hotel really cares about their clients and do the best to make the stay comfortable. We really appreciate the service. The hotel is absolutely worth of recommend.
