“Good hotel”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

Stayed here since the 21st until the 28th of June. Everything was ok in the hotel. The only negative aspect is the noise coming from the outside during the night, which is natural in a tourist destination like palma de maiorca. I just thought it would be more quiet in this area (we were in a high floor.)

Would definitely comeback. (And maybe i will!)

The Riu chain is always reliable and you can be sure of a high standard. This one is no exception. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. The food was very good, with lots of choice and friendly waiting staff. There is both an iindoor pool and an outdoor pool and the hotel is just a couple of minutes walk from the beach. The hotel is set in a very German area, so if travelling alone, it is difficult to strike up conversations. The t.v. In the room was also exclusively German and Spanish.

Room Tip: I booked a single room, but requested a double bed! I was given a double room for the price of a si...

Bright, modern hotel, clean and comfortable and situated only a few hundred yards from the beach at Playa de Palma. Guests are almost exclusively mature Germans, we did not meet or hear another English speaking person during our entire stay. Bedrooms are relatively small with a postage stamp size TV. Sky News available but reception is very poor. Small outdoor pool area partly sheltered by trees. Food was acceptable, served buffet style and is certainly not fine dining. Staff, as at all Riu hotels, were excellent.
Playa de Palma is obviously a German outpost, spoiled by African gentlemen who proposition you with watches and sun glasses every few yards on the sea front walk.
Overall we quite enjoyed the Festival but if we returned to Majorca we would stay elsewhere next time.

  • Liked — very clean with excellent staff
  • Disliked — Not in the best area of Palma
