Bonanza Palace emailed me after our stay for feedback which they implied they would respond to. Well 3 months have past and not even an acknowledgement of my reply. So that is disappointing but overall was a nice stay. Copy follows: Dear Sirs Thank you for your email in regard to my recent stay at your hotel. And your request... More

We stayed in Riu palace bonanza for a week in oktober. We really enjoyed the large pool and sunbeds. Rooms a bit small, ok gym, lunch a bit expensive, great location 10 min by taxi to Palma and 10 min taxi to Puerto Portals- both dinner favourites. We had a nice stay!

We have had a fantastic holiday here at this beautiful hotel. On arrival, met with champagne, bags taken to our room & nothing appears to trouble the very professional staff. The weather for this time of year was in the mid 70's, so either stayed by the pool or walked to the beach at just down the road. Breakfast has... More

When you visit a large hotel that caters for such a lot of people, expectations can often be too high. This was end of the season and I was a single traveler. The welcome that I received was superb. Even the Director personally welcomed me, followed later by the assistant director! It was a genuine welcome, which takes some effort,... More

I wanted a nice relaxing week long break in the sun with my wife. I got exactly that and more. From the moment we are and saw the magnificent view from the reception lobby whilst sipping the complementary bubbly to the moment we left I was always impressed. The place is spotless......the food was amazing throughout our stay and the... More

It is a good value of money/quality. The hotel was just renovated, but it still does mot look very modern. What we did not like: there is no room service 24/7 , breakfast was ok, but not very delicious, thought, they served champagne, rooms were furnished old fashioned way. What we have liked: there is a separate breakfast area for... More
