Hotel Riu San Francisco
Ranked #21 of 78 Hotels in Playa de Palma
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 September 2017

The hotel staff are extremely friendly. The hotel is clean and has large beds. There is a buffet breakfast and dinner included, which had a lot of variety and the food was always fresh. The pool was beautiful and clean with a lot of sunbeds. Friendly pool bar service. There was a lot of noise outside with all the young partying travellers, but closing our balcony door fixed this. Nice cool air-conditioned rooms. Across the road from the beach and close to lots of bars. Bus stop out the front of the hotel.

Room Tip: Try and book early to get a sea-facing room. Much nicer view and much quieter rooms.

Unbelievable noise, shouting, singing and drumming well into the small hours. It could have been better of the front but seemingly our travel agent does organe access to such rooms
The staff were all charming but since I do not possess a lime yellow trilby or a tattoo they agreed that our best plan was to leave. They charged for one night

Dinner was good, breakfast less so, cold omelettes and cardboard bacon do nota breakfast make

Our subsequent move made up for everything, there are fine hotels here , my research was lacking

Booked a week here and should have gone elsewhere.
First night we could not believe the noise from outside was,we'll check out my video.
The hotel allocated us a room overlooking the street which was crowded with partygoers at midnight we had to go to reception and demand that they move us which They did.The whole area of Playa del Palma was overrun with German boys and girls who liked to be heard,noisy loud and unruly.On our last day the reception could not allow us to keep on our room (im disabled)but was told to use the gym to shower and change before we left well when we went for shower which consisted of one shower and no where to change.We found 3German males naked changing in this area rather embarrassing for my wife.Would not use this hotel again especially June or July when the German youngsters take over the area.

The hotel is beautifully located at just few steps from the beach.
It offers outstanding sea views, amazing spa facilities and a permanent fresh air with a nice perfume.
I have no restrictions, and I do actually find myself obliged by circumstances, to mention Ms Piedad and Mr Alejandro who were as friendly as possible with a permanent can do and very helpful attitude, being part of their great reception staff.
They offer an impeccable room cleanliness, a great variety of good healthy food very well presented and served.
The professionalism is at its best, and I congratulate all their staff for all the effort they put in, which reflects in the overall customer satisfaction.
The brand owner has all the motives to be proud with his work which reflects well within each holiday experience.
This has been my very first experience with Riu, as before that I didn't hear or know about them, but obviously I'm happy I do know now .
Thank you for making me feel special during my stay. Next time though, I'll do whatever is necessary to get one of their amazing sea view rooms, as I wasn't so fortunate first time.

My husband and I have just returned from ten days
at this hotel. I made a big mistake booking it! The hotel itself is excellent. Food good though breakfast
not as good as some Riu hotels we have been to. No smoothies, homemade cake or fresh omelette.
Problem is its proximity to bars and clubs. The minute you step out the door it's noise, drunken youths and revelling! The manageress couldn't be nicer nor the staff but it is outwith their control. Too many rowdy guests! Hard to get a decent sleep. Pity!
