Hotel description

Guests come to the Riu Palace Bonanza Playa to enjoy complete relaxation and the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea. It is a retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, catering for guests in a modern, stylish setting with a range of excellent facilities. The interior design boasts high-quality materials and beautiful wood furnishings, and just one of many highlights in the hotel service is the stunning outdoor pool that juts out into the sea, complete with gorgeous lounging area and recliners. However, the hotel is also not far from the delightful Palma resort, where visitors can enjoy the shopping and sightseeing opportunities at their leisure. It is therefore a holiday destination suitable for adults and children alike, with a whole range of activities and water sports for the family to enjoy.
Beach hotel: gorgeous pool with incredible sea view, close to the beach
The Riu Palace Bonanza Playa is located right on the waterfront, with its luxurious pool stretching out to form a unique jetty pointing directly into the sea. From here, guests can choose to relax in the fresh waters of the pool or bathe in the Mediterranean Sea, resurfacing to dry off on the comfortable sunbeds arranged on the pool’s generous sunbathing area. The nearest sandy beach is approximately 800m from the hotel, protected by cliffs to form a quaint little bay with a wonderfully exclusive atmosphere. The fine sands and clear waters make this bay the perfect location for snorkelling, and its beauty has even been celebrated by The Sunday Times, which has named it as one of the most beautiful beaches on the coast of Majorca.
