Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

Just returned from a week long stay at this beautiful hotel. We were impressed with the standards of cleanliness throughout.The refurbished bedrooms are very contemporary with one of the most comfortable hotel beds we have slept in. The pool area is stunning, overlooking the sea with views towards Palma. It is furnished with new sunbeds and parasols and finding a spacious spot was never a problem, without the need to reserve beds. The food in the restaurant is exceptional, served by pleasant, efficient staff.
Staff genuinely appear to be happy in their work here and everyone was so friendly and eager to maintain consistently high standards, the hotel directors like to meet their guests personally to make sure everyone is happy with the service. The hotel has a large number of repeat customers and it is clear to see why.We will definitely return!

We had a very short stay at the Bonanza Playa last week, our second this year. Once again we were delighted with every aspect of the hotel. From the moment you enter you are greeted with courtesy and professionalism (and a lovely glass of cava). The newly renovated rooms are fabulous (this time we stayed on the same floor as the main reception and had a wonderful view of the Bay of Palma. The quality of food and service in the restaurant is fantastic and the service is atentive and friendly, both at dinner and breakfast - we highly recommend half board - it is fabulous value for money. All the public areas inside and out are spotless and well staffed and the spa is lovely. We are lucky enough to spend a lot of time in Mallorca and would never miss an opportunity to stay at this hotel. Well done once again to all the team that make Riu Bonanza Playa such a pleasure to visit. We'll be seeing you agaiin very soon.

Room Tip: Half board is great value, There are two sittings for dinner 6.30 and 8.30. Rooms facing the bay o...

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at this hotel. It was our 3rd visit in the last 3 years. Everything from the food quality, friendly staff to the extremely comfortable bedroom were first class. We will definitely be returning again. Well done Riu, our favourite hotel.

Hotel Riu Palace Bonanza Playa
I stayed here with my mum for a few days during May. I felt safe at this resort, and would recommend for lone and more mature travellers.
We enjoyed our stay for a few nights.
The hotel decor was pleasant and clean; the outdoor pool was small with sufficient sun loungers, and pool service. The indoor spa area had a small pool, with a nice spa area.
The rooms were of a good size and cleaned daily, nothing special but really missed a kettle that I would expect from a 4 star hotel. All rooms look over the sea, the view is lovely.
I am sensitive to noise so always travel with ear plugs; I would not have been able to sleep without them as you could hear noise from other hotel guests.
There were daily activities going on every afternoon, we did not join in as I wanted to relax and read but I noted that bowls, table tennis, archery, tennis were the kinds of activities going on.
We ate breakfast at busy times but always found a clean table, and plenty of fresh food available.
For our evening meal (we booked half board) we sat at the 6.30pm sitting that suited us. Staff were attentive and friendly and tried really hard to speak English (my Spanish is not great!). I would strongly recommend you order your main course from the menu, the starter is buffet (lots of choice) it will then be served at the table; we found the quality is much better than the main course at the buffet. I like a good quality wine only available by the bottle, I could not drink a whole bottle (mum doesn’t drink wine); your wine can be labelled and kept in the restaurant cold for the next evening. I did feel there was a lack of fresh vegetables, but this was not a problem as there was plenty of salad and fruit available.
We visited Palma by bus (number 3) it was very easy as it stops directly outside the hotel, it cost 6 euros return a taxi is approx. 11 euros.
I booked with a German company saving over £150 with expedia etc. . Overall a nice hotel for a few nights stay with my mum , but my children would not enjoy it here.

Room Tip: They have all be refurbished and Im sure they all have sea views, rooms under and around the restura...

Just come back from a lovely week's break at this hotel near Illetas Mallorca

The only negative aspect of this break was the weather was shocking - it rained every day, something that's not normal in April for the region. We were therefore confined into the hotel more than we would have hoped for and couldn't have enjoyed sunbathing by the pool etc

The hotel staff are fantastic, we were personally welcomed by Paquita the manager on arrival and she was on hand thoughout the stay and welcomed us to dinner each night.

Our chambermaid was lovely too and serviced the room to a very high standard. Bar staff and reception staff were also very helpful, friendly and spoke fluent English.

The food was fantastic, plenty of choice and a lovely setting overlooking the sea.

Lots and lots of German tourists so beware of their queue barging!

Otherwise my one feedback to the hotel would be its nice to have tea and coffee facilities in the rooms as early risers would appreciate a cuppa before breakfast!

We would come back again.
