we found the staff at reception on arrival very welcoming and helpful. All the staff in hotel were very helpful and attentive .Rooms were very clean and towels changed every day .We also liked location of hotel and great bus service to palma .
We found it to be abit noisy at times .
Staff were very good, breakfasts very good, half board option was very good value, evening meals excelent, public areas of hotel very well appointed and had some interesting art work, nice pool and garden area
hotel exterior on sea side of hotel needs some painting/refurbishment
Room with balcony was fine if a little dated. Food choice was good. Two lovely local beaches approx 15 & 25 min walk as well as small beach at hotel. Teenagers (13) found little of interest.
The outdoor pool is not heated and was not useable. mid April)
The whole ambiance of the hotel - the welcome on arrival, the courteousness of all the staff, the location beside the sea and in a lovely area of Majorca near Palma City with ver good bus connections. The excellent dining room and food, the pool area with loungers and the overall spotless condition and cleanliness.
No. We could not find fault with anything.
the reception desk staff were most helpful with transport/sightseeing enquiries
very nice and attentive staff well trained; very nice location and view on Palma and the sea; excellent food (breakfast + dinner)
Spa facilities are rather poor, but do exist
For the money we paid for a 5 day break with half board we couldn,t folt anything ,the food was very good the service excellent ,very clean and in a lovely location ,were booking for november.
Very nice clean hotel and staff are great.
The service at the poolside snack bar is not good. Every time we have eaten there we have had a problem, usually with the bill, we have always items added that we did not have, and wrong orders served or orders already placed not received.
The staff were polite and very helpful throughout our stay, I will definately be returning to this excellent hotel.
Views from pool terrace. Friendliness of staff.
The hotel is old and tired, especially externaly. Lifts constantly not working ensures a good fitness campaign running up and down 16 flights between the pool and reception levels! Insufficient area for sun beds when the hotel is full and guests unnofficially reserving beds from around 7.00 am was a pain. Set dining times accross 2 sittings was also an unwelcome surprise.
We all enjoyed our stay at the Riu Palace Bonanza Playa. The staff were pleasant, friendly and most helpful throughout the whole stay. The hotel had some excellent views from the dining room, bar and indeed seemingly all the rooms. The outside pool was a good size and really not too crowded given that the hotel was pretty full. Down a short flight of stairs there was also access to a very small beach and the sea. Breakfast and evening meals were very good, wide choice and very tasty. There is a very regular bus service running from right in front of the hotel to Palma and also taxi’s stand ready nearby. Our room was comfortably airconditioned and peaceful, as was the whole hotel thanks to the make up of the guests.
If I had to give a negative then I could mention that the lifts were a little slow in arriving. This is only an issue as the hotel has 10 floors. 8 being street level and 0 beach level. The stairs are, of course, also an option, going down is easy!
The hotel staff could not do enough to please you, we got the seating we requested in the dining room and any questions or problems were handled promptly and courteously. The views from our room balcony and the public areas were very nice indeed and there was a very good selection of salads,fish and meats from both the a la carte menu and buffet table.
There was no beach to walk into the water for a swim so you had to go down a step ladder about 1.25 m to get in to the med.
The Managment team pride themselves on customer service and all staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel has an excellent location - a short 1.25 euro bus ride from Palma with frequent buses. Food generally good quality with a good choice although as its a buffet the hot food sometimes was lukewarm. You can also choose from an a la carte menu.
The hotel could do with some refurbishing especially the lifts- often very slow and long wait for a lift. The hotel has signs up asking people not to book sun loungers by placing towels on them and then not using the beds but the penalty of removing these was never actioned. Car parking a bit expensive at 7 euros a day.
Excellent food both morning and evening and the staff were very attentive and helpful.
The reference to a private beach is a little misleading as there isn't really a beach (though there is access into the sea) but we were happy with the pool so not really an issue on this occasion.
We love the Riu Palace Bonanza Playa for its excellent staff, beautiful peaceful location, easy of access to other areas while somewhat exclusive in its location. This is a large hotel with excellent facilities, but the ambience is more of a family run establishment, in the way that care is give to ensure the comfort and satisfaction of the guests. The number of guests who return regularly are significant of the popularity of this lovely holiday destination.
