“Great for a long weekend away”
Reviewed 14 May 2012

I stayed in the Don Bigote last week as part of a hen party and it was my second time at the hotel and it didn't disappoint. The rooms are basic however they are kept very clean and towels changed daily. We went half board and there was food to suit everyone. The pool area was kept clean and tidy and there was always sun beds free. The hotel is in an ideal location as 5 mins from the beach. Just a tip for any girls returning to the hotel late at night.....there was a local guy pretending to be ill outside the hotel clutching his stomach when a group of girls approached him he snatched one of their bags. As the party had warned of this occurrence we were lucky as on the second night the same guy tried the con with us...thankfully we were on to him.

We stayed for a week at the Don Bigote and had a really nice stay. The staff are friendly and courteous. As stated in other reviews the rooms are small but you don't go on holiday to spend your time in the room anyway! There was always a good selection of food for the evening meal with a mixture of Spanish and English dishes,Breakfast was pretty standard for most hotels of this rating (sausage,bacon,fried and hard boiled eggs and beans) but plenty of it and always hot. Pool area is very nice plenty of chairs tables and sun beds,(one complaint about sun beds they are not adjustable and could do with a cover,most people bought inflatable beds for them). All in all we would recommend this hotel for a nice relaxing stay and we would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: room numbers 100,200,300,400,500,600 and 700 are the smallest rooms due to service area next door.

just got back ,this is the 3rd time staying here, the place is great value for money. food great selection, rooms are not the biggest but fine for 2 people ,wouldnt fancy 3 in a room,staff all very nice ,especially joe and his soon to be wife,this hotel IS in palma nova , maids do great job rooms cleaned every day,hotel can be noisy but this is due to it being busy ,and people dont always sleep at the same time ,the best bit is no towels on chairs at 4 in morning as they dont open the pool doors till 9.30 as cleaning then its best to sit on balcony and watch as they come through the doors like little ants

2nd visit to this hotel both hen weekends, we went half board the food was good at both breakfast and dinner. The rooms are small and basic but cleaned everyday, the location of the hotel is excellent you are a 5 min walk to the beach and 10-15 min walk to magaluf. (a taxi costs 3-4 euro) to magaluf.

would diffently return to this hotel again the staff are all lovely and helpful.

Recently stayed at Don Bigote for 4 days with friends and it is a great base to stay at,comfy beds and pillows .As someone who doesn't eat meat I felt that there should have been a bit more food choice but if you are a meat eater there is a huge choice.Staff are nice and polite and it is literally 5 minute walk from the beach which is a good beach.Visit Banana Joes on the same road as the beach front.

stayed here with a group of friends(aged 45 to 65) last week.After reading the reviews i was pleasantly surprised on entering the reception area.It was very clean and the staff pleasant and helpfull.Booking in only took a few minuets and they managed to get us rooms altogether.The bedroom was on the small side but fine for what you need.They sea view from the 6th floor was fantastic but you over look the road with traffic noise or you can have a pool view which was quieter.The food in the restaurant was varied and good.Always hot and well presented. For a budget hotel I would say the food exceptional.The location is great .Only a 2min walk from the beach with bars and shops all around.We paid £12 a night each for half board which i thought was extremely good value.I would definatley stop here again and recommend it to anybody looking for a cheap and cheerfull hotel but not a 5 star one.

Room Tip: rooms overlooking the road have fantastic see views but the pool view rooms are quieter.
