Riu Bravo Hotel
With contemporary looks, a central postcode and a trio of places to eat, the Riu Bravo Hotel is incredibly popular.
The main pool is a curvy number that wraps around a couple of chunky palm trees. There’s a bar next to it that’s sunken into its own little pool, with in-water tables and chairs for chilling out. The second pool is smaller and is a great place to escape the crowds.
For meals, you have a choice of three restaurants. The main eatery serves international buffet spreads but there’s also a place that specialises in Spanish food and an open-air grill that dishes out snacks in the day from May to October.
Overview of Playa de Palma
Playa de Palma is a favourite with families and couples looking for holidays to Majorca. Thanks to the resort’s location between the capital of Palma and the beach resort of Arenal, it blends relaxing beach days with culture-filled afternoons.
There’s plenty to do when you leave the Riu Bravo Hotel. The huge beach is packed to the rafters with water sports and activities, while the promenade is lined with restaurants. In the evening, plenty of bars open their doors.
