The hotel is beautifully located at just few steps from the beach. It offers outstanding sea views, amazing spa facilities and a permanent fresh air with a nice perfume. I have no restrictions, and I do actually find myself obliged by circumstances, to mention Ms Piedad and Mr Alejandro who were as friendly as possible with a permanent can do...

My husband and I have just returned from ten days at this hotel. I made a big mistake booking it! The hotel itself is excellent. Food good though breakfast not as good as some Riu hotels we have been to. No smoothies, homemade cake or fresh omelette. Problem is its proximity to bars and clubs. The minute you step out...

It started out as an interesting experience with interesting guests, but it went South fast. As we were putting our stuff away after we checked in a hotel employee walked in on us. We didn't think much of it at the time, put our things away, and proceeded to go out. When we came back my Wife noticed her cash...

Although we've been to the Playa de Palma several times it was our first stay in Riu San Francisco.We were not disappointed, we had a room on the 4th floor facing the sea and the view was perfect. The position of the hotel couldn't be better and although it...

It's a nice adults only, recently renovated hotel, with clean rooms and large bathrooms. I particularly liked that we were provided daily with fresh towels, even if the used ones were not left on the floor. The room could have been a bit bigger, but its size was not an issue. We had a front sea view room, which was...

This hotel practices a lot of surbooking and as you arrive they just inform us that there is no free room for us. They even start shouting on us because we got angry. To finish, we were sent to another hôtel wich was a class below, different (not adults only) and very bad. As we are still there we can...

We´ve been visiting the RIU San Francisco for over 15-years, off-and-on. Can´t beat the staff, service, food, and location. The rooms are a bit on the small side, but haven´t had a problem with that.
