“short break”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

Myself and a friend stayed at this Hotel just for a quick 3night stay last weekend. We arrived at the Hotel for 11am and was handed our room key straight away, which we wasn't expecting so we were very pleased.
The hotel turned out to be better than what we were expecting to be honest, our room was very basic and freezing of a night time but the food and location of the Hotel were very good.
The reception staff were quite rude, restaurant staff very rude but the bar staff were absolutely brilliant, very friendly and enthusiastic.
We ended up having an excellent weekend and would probably stay again

We stayed (3 adults) in the Don Bigote for a week (26th April - 3rd May), this was our first visit and we found the hotel to be excellent. It was splotlessly clean (rooms cleaned daily), friendly staff. It's location was also excellent, two minutes from the beach, a bus stop just around the corner, shops and restaurants just a minute away.

The food was also excellent, good variety each night and the dining room staff were again very friendly. WiFi is available for £15 euro for a week and TV in your room for 2euro a day.

stayed in this hotel for 5 days last week. staff were very helpful and rooms cleaned daily with change of towels everyday. rooms were a decent size so cant complain. meals were ok nothing great but for price you pay it was edible, something for everyone. only downfall we had at meal times was daughter found what looked like a prawn claw in her dinner which put her off. staff could see full plate sitting on side of table to be lifted but wouldnt come near. over all it was a great few days and would go back.

Room Tip: try getting a pool facing room as we were on other side 1st day and u dont get sun.

Booked this as a last minute deal and after reading some of the reviews was a bit wary of what it would be like. We arrive about 1 in the afternoon and were checked in straight away. We were given a room on the third floor which was pool facing. The room had two single beds pushed together, a clean bathroom and a lovely balcony.. all you need! Downstairs you have the restaurant where the staff work very hard, good choice of food. Full English every morning and then for tea during the week I had bacon carbonara, lasagne, cottage pie, roast dinner and pizza. My fussy partner even managed to find something he liked each day. In the bar the drinks are a bit more expensive that at the pubs and restaurants in Palma nova. For lunch we often went to Castaways which is just around the corner. My partner enjoyed it as it was 2 pints of Estrella for 2 euros 10. Another restaurant we went for lunch was Kompas. While there I would definitely recommend going to the Pirattes Adventure which is rated 3rd best show in the world! just a 30 minute walk away or about 6 euros in a taxi. Katmandu is brilliant and well worth a visit, 15 minute walk.. about 4 euros in a taxi. Palma City market is just a bus ride away. The 104 bus will take you there but if you get the 106 it has less stops and you will get there quicker. On a Wednesday take the 118 bus to andrax for the market.. well worth a visit.

All in all a brilliant holiday and have already priced up to go again next year.

Room Tip: *Ask for a pool room view as will get the sun all day. *Buy your lunch and drinks away from the hot...

A group of us stayed here and nobody was disappointed with the hotel. The rooms were a bit dated but otherwise the place had great service, an excellent location about 3 minutes walk from the beach, shops, bars and restaurants. The food was decent as well in a nice restaurant. The bar also served bottles of magners which went down a treat on the warm days.

Room Tip: A room facing the front of the hotel on a high floor will have sea views

Just returned from this excellent hotel having spent 5 nights there. Very friendly staff especially bar staff. Rooms are clean and are cleaned every day with clean bedding and towels daily. We had a lovely view of the pool and surrounding countryside. Don't listen to the reviews that imply the food is not good, food was excellent with plenty of choice. Within easy walking distance to a lovely sandy beach and plenty of entertainment.

Only bad report was some of the fellow so called guests. There was a large crowd of Scottish men who took over the pool area in the day. Very loud . Everyone was glad when they left.

We will definitely return again.

Room Tip: All the rooms at the back have a view of the pool.

We have just returned from a long weekend at the Don Bigote the hotel is magnificent and I cannot praise all the friendly staff enough. As usual, the catering was second to none and the cleanliness was excellent. The resort itself is beautiful and the lovely beaches are just a couple of minutes away, as are the clubs and shopping areas.The prices in the shops and the hotel are really cheap, in fact, much cheaper than in England to eat and drink out. Once again I must praise all the staff for making our stay so enjoyable, we will be returning in September and we are really looking forward to it, once you have stayed at this hotel you will want to re-visit.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely
