My husband and I, together with five very good friends have just spent a week at the Riu Bravo. A lovely hotel in a very good location. Clean, comfortable rooms and the choice of food in the restaurant was excellent. We picked a good week to go, especially as the U.K was very wet and cool, whilst the weather in Majorca was wonderful - certainly a lot hotter than we could have hoped for at this time of the year. The hotel staff were very polite and friendly and nothing was too much trouble and we would certainly recommend this hotel.

Hotel staff were very good and entertainment was provided every evening. The hotel is well placed for travel to Palma from where services radiate to every corner of the Island. The Playa boasts a beautiful beach and promenade five miles long and is traffic free - apart from ubiquitous cyclists. We travelled independently and simply got a taxi from the airport rank (15 euros) but were even better served on the way back by getting the no 21 bus which runs to and from the airport every 30 mins and serves all the establishments along the Playa. One matter of note (and I mention this only as a plain fact) the whole of the Playa was full of German tourists at the time we visited. Would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Our only comment is that the walls are not very well soundproofed

Excellent food and chef Angel casts his eye over all the dishes if they need replenishing etc. The smoked salmon is delicious and cured in house.
Good value,well presented and ample selection.
Staff are friendly and extremely professional.
The bar area is well served with the ladies from Granada and Cuidad Real,great humour,fast service with appx 490 people catered for at all times.
Full marks to the directors for their good choice of personnel

A very well run hotel - and helpful, happy staff. I stayed for 2 weeks in November and was surprised that the hotel was full, but later learned that many people were on a repeat visit. It's situated about a minute walk from a long sandy beach and an elegant traffic free promenade and plenty of shops, bars etc although to be fair, most of these closed down at the beginning of November. However, the bus stop for Palma was nearer than the beach and the service was excellent and only took 15 minutes; the airport was the same distance.
The food in the hotel was very good, freshly cooked and well presented and I think most people were all -inclusive. The dining room was very well run. As well as main meals, there was late breakfast in the bar and afternoon tea. Some people felt the need to fill (big)picnic boxes with rolls and cake, yogurt etc. and collect more fruit on the way out, even though the next meal was a couple of hours later! British guests did not seem to do this. The other guests were 95% German so the staff usually addressed people in German, which was a bit annoying - why not speak Spanish and then adjust as needed? They were also keen to make sure you were happy - when the people on the next table weren't happy with a steak, the waiter brought them a glass of cava and gave me one as well as he knew we were having a conversation which was a nice touch.

Bedrooms were well appointed and the cleaning was of a high standard. The only downside was that the single rooms overlooked the side street where the rubbish was collected at
4 a.m. by men who went out of their way to be noisy - on a night when there was a lot of banging I looked out of the window to see one man on the back of the truck making a real effort to bang on the side with a big stick to the rhythm of his loud singing.
I'd go back, possibly in Spring or Autumn

Room Tip: All the single rooms seem to be over the service entrance which can be noisy-I did ask to move but was told the hotel was full(and I think it was). Try for a pool view in the main block - I don't know what the other block was like but the naughty children lived there!!

Very helpful staff. The buffet is huge and delicious, and for dinner there are two turns to eat: at 5:30pm and 7:30pm. My room was facing away from the beach, but it was very quiet. A short walk to the bus stop, a ride to Palma costs €1.25. There were mostly Germans staying, which I don't mind as I'm German myself, but if you hate the sound of people speaking in another language but English, you might not like staying there. At night only the Bierkönig was open, so there was no noise to be heard at all.
I very much enjoyed my stay at Riu Bravo and would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: My room was facing northeast (opposite side to the beach) and it was very quiet (3rd floor).
