More about Hotel Don Bigote
Staff are a bit teenager weary
yes well the saying 'you get what u pay for' never seemed more apt than when we first say our room at hotel don bigote; the size of a shoe box and more appropriate for hobbits than full size humans. The food however was a plesant surprise and was nicer than many of the nearyby eaterys. I was dissapointed not to be able to meet the 'Don' himself but i did meet the night manager who promptly accused me and my roomates of letting off a fire extinguisher and demanding our passports he then , equally promptly may i add, admitted he knew it wasnt us and let us go. Still it did the job and the hotel is good for young people as it...well it is good . Shame the three of us had to share one key..among weaker friends it may have led to arguments. We had a wicked time by the way!
p.s. it had very nice lifts
Fantastic value For £12 a night
I Stayed a the Don bigote with a group of 15 girls for a long hen weekend. The hotel staff were fantastic and very friendly. The rooms are a little dated but very clean. The food was lovley. I found the paella to be of a very high standard. The fresh fruit was divine. A liitle too far from the centre of magaluf however this suited the older people in the party who wanted to stay in the bars near the hotel. Rumba resturant nearby was very authentic I enjoyed the menu del dia. Do not go to the castaway cafe nearby it was awful and expensive (full of chavs). Overall it was excellent value for money for a short break.
Nice Hotel No Complaints
After reading some of the reviews i was dreading my stay at the Don Bigote. When i got there i was surprised it was clean the maids were in every day to clean our room & change our towels! The food was good always something for everyone and the staff pleasant and friendly. Ok our room was not the biggest , but i had the most comfortable bed ever!!!! i have never had a comfy bed in any other hotel i have stayed in they are usually hard. The hotel is in a great location for the beach shops etc. Like every hotel if there are young guys there will be some noise, you can experience that in any hotel you go to all over the world. It is not the staff or the hotels that are to fault it is the people themselves.
I would definatly go back there again!!!
Great girly holiday
Hey,satyed in this hotel in july it was peak season and it was great!!do not go to this holtel if you are a family in the height of season.The hotel was mostly young singletons looking for a laugh.10mins away from magaluf easy location near the beach.wee bit of advice if you dont want to hear the club 18-30 trash ask to stay above the 3rd floor 1,2,3 are all club 18-30.The hotel is basic but it is cleaned every day and you get fresh towels all the time.the food is ok but there is plenty of wee places near by to eat for like £3.The only thing to watch is the people down the beach selling things like cans and melon,they charge a bomb and will make you pay and i mean it is like £9 a can!!You can get a lounger down the pool but the beach is lovely and clean and only 2mins away.It is very warm in July bout 102f or so!Amyway have a nice time!5 out of 5 stay i had no trouble at all.
Avoid this hotel
I stopped at this hotel with 11 of mates in the summer and I can honestly say it was a terrible hotel. We took measurments of the rooms we had and they were 10 foot by 16 foot (no joke) and this was supposed to sleep three to a room. The wardrobe was tiny, and there one chest of draws. The food was awful and not fit to eat, and we were not to suprised when several people in the hotel became quite ill.
For the price of the hotel we were well peed off, but when we tried to get help from the staff or reps there didn't seem to bother.
Last time I checked it had 2 stars, which is 2 too many as far as we are concerned.
avoid this hotel
Avoid this hotel if you are used to a better class of accomodation. The food choice is very limited, and the manager was not interested in anything we had to say. The hotel fined us 8 euros for getting make up on bath towels and refused to give our passports back if we did not pay it. We are not teenagers (30 something) and were shocked to be treated this way. After my friend slipped on the stairs one afternoon and cut her back they said they didnt care and to tell our rep Surprise surprise the next day was a huge sign up saying slippery stairs beware. It has trully put us off returning to the island, but surely all hotels there cant be the same
excellent - highly rated!!
Its the second year running i have stayed in this hotel and i would highly recommended it. we paid 70 for the full week half board which is unbelivably good value for money - there is always an excellent choice of food especially in the evenings ranging from vegiterian meals to meat, vegetables, stews, salads fresh fish not to mention about 7 choices of desserts!! the tables are kept spotless and cleaned almost instantly for the next person and the staff are friendly and very very hard working. The rooms are of average size and are immaculate - maids clean the rooms every single day which is unusal for a 3 star hotel. the rooms boast spectacular views of the pool side and surrounding palma nova. The pool is cleaned every morning and was always spotless there are more than enough sun loungers to accompany sun worshippers like myself :-)
Overall i highly recommend this hotel - it would suit a variety of ages, couple and families - if i come back to Palma Nova this would definatly be my choice again i have never been dissapointed.
noise noise noise
noise was terible youngsters screaming shouting swearing 24/7 cant get more than 2 hours sleep rubbish around the pool /bottles thrown in and out of pool children cant get it the pool phone ringing at night,football played on landing music and partyies going would not recommend this place sad really food and staff good and thanks to all those people that spoilt 3 generations holiday
great friendly hotel
what a very friendly hotel stayed for a week and the staff were friendly the bar was always clean and well manned the food was brill with a great selection, some thing for every one
the only complaint that was the size of the rooms they were a bit on the small side but apart from that had a great week the owners should be proud of themselves will be booking again thanks
Me and my Fiance went to this hotel in july this year. The rooms were fairly small, but then again, we only slept there.. weather was AWSUM!! ( had a great tan to show off ) hotel very clean and friendly, had a great laugh with the reps..
im a fussy eater and the 2 weeks in which we stayed there, there was only 2nights were there wasnt something i fancyed.. ok i could have had a salad and chips which was there every night but i wanted a proper meal. food cooked excellent/ no flys!
there were a few noisey groups, but it is a club 18- 30 hotel.. what do u expect?!

Car hire for Palma Nova
We have been looking at car hire for a week as we are travelling from Palma Nova to Cala Millor and wanted a car for the 2nd week of our hoiday on the east coast. The prices on all types of car hire are are pretty steep - has anyone hired cars in resort and has that proved cheaper than over the Internet?
Also, we wanted to eat out at some 'genuine'Spanish restaurants - not just touristy - any recommendations - in palma nove or cala millor?
Re: Car hire for Palma Nova
Can't help with the restaurants as I've never stayed in Cala Millor or Palma Nova, but as for car hire - I've always used Goldcar when in Mallorca/Majorca and found them very reasonable, they have a branch at the airport and one on the seafront in Palma. They have an English language section on their website:www.goldcar.es
Hope this helps, enjoy your holiday. AM
