“First Class”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Just got back last week after staying at the Hotel for the 6th time in 10 years I still can not find anything to moan about, the Don Bigote has every thing you want and is only a 3 minute walk to the beach and shops yet it is in a nice quite spot, it has a nice swimming pool with loads of space around the pool to sunbathe, good clean rooms with comfy beds and the food is outstanding and the staff always there to help, my only complaint wish I had stayed longer

Me and my partner stayed here for four nights. The hotel is a bit dated but very clean. New bath towels everyday, bed sheets just every three days. Food was great something different every night and really tasty. It is in a great location 5 min walk to beach and 15 min bus to shopping centre and 20 min cab to magaluf! The staff were pleasant and helpful! Will be going back!

Just come back from 10 days in may 2014, after refurbishment and a few alterations its trying to move up a star rating.
I would say they have succeeded, food excellent breakfast and evening meal. Cleaners do a very good job and are really friendly, all staff in fact are great.
Didn't use the bar or pool area as we went out every day. The rooms are a decent size and no smaller than normal as other reviewers have said. English TV. In room for the price of a pint a day. Great. Double doors on balcony to. Keep the mosquitoes out.

Top location...
We will be back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: 606, 706, 506 top corner so you get sun and the best view of pool, small woods and hills.

As a group of 4 lads travelling on their first lads holiday we weren't looking for anything special, but this place turned out to be brilliant, about a minute from the beach and 10 minutes from the strip which is easy to find. Food was really good, lots of variety and different choices in the evening, pool was freezing but a decent size and depth. If you go out to Magaluf be careful of everyone doing promotion work they will hassle you until you give in and try to sell you tickets. We had an incident on the beach where they pressured us into giving our hotel room number so they could come back and sell us tickets, on the last day we were due to check out around 9:30 and be picked up at 8 in the evening so we spent the day at the hotel however in the morning about 8:30 we got a loud bang almost like a kick on our door with a member of staff shouting "GET UP BOYS TIME TO GO" other than that, staff were brilliant. Highly recommend

I have just returned from a 3 night stay with 10 other ladies on my hen weekend. The hotel is great value for money and will defo be returning. The food is good always something to eat and the rooms were cleaned daily with clean towels. The bar staff were lovely and could not be nicer. Would defo recommend this hotel to anyone and please ignore the bad reviews what more do you want for how cheap it is. Thank you for a great holiday. Lyndsey from Scotland.

Just returned from a 9 night stay in the Don Bigote and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.
For what you pay for this accommodation, its great value for money.
Yes, the rooms are small but are perfectly adequate for two persons.
There is a safe you can hire at a reasonable cost to make sure valuables are kept secure.
The room has a television, should you wish to hire the remote (we never used it, so don't know the cost)
It has a great working shower, the best of any hotel in Palma Nova in which we have stayed and we have stayed in quite a few.
But for me, the best bit of the room was the fact the beds were comfy, a pleasant surprise indeed.
The location is ideal, just a short walk to the beach and is also directly opposite the best bar in Palma Nova, Bar Amigos.
We were booked B&B and although there was not a massive selection, what was there (apart from the bacon I have to say) was of a decent enough standard.
I had 6 friends also staying in the hotel, who were all booked half board and they all told me that the evening meal was very good indeed.
There are a couple of minor details that are not so good, one being the type of sun loungers around the pool. They are the flat plastic type with no tilting back and no padded covers available, hence very uncomfortable.
Bar prices are elevated compared with surrounding bars, but this would not put me off staying here again.
I think when it gets into the high season, the clientele will be younger (stags & hens) but when we stayed it was more towards the age group 40 - 60.
We were in room 112, which is right at the top of the stairs and lift, so could be a bit noisy at times, so I would avoid if possible, but it was never a big problem.
We have stayed in many hotels in Palma Nova, including a few times in the one up the road, Hotel Mimosa Park and believe me, the Don Bigote is way ahead of it.
It will be my first choice next time I return

Room Tip: Poolside get afternoon sun, but try to avoid the rooms right at the top of the stairs and lifts
