“what a2star hotel very nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

first time at the hotel bigote very nice hotel rooms small but for some where to lay your head great i was in room 423 what a view lovely bathroom could do with a update but cleaned every day bed made.towels changed every day what more can you ask for better than some 3 0r 4 star hotels food great plenty of it. pool clean bingo every night jet2 says its adults only thats ture but thomas cook are booking kids in well thay did this year dont know about next year so make sure if you want to be free of kids then ask.safes are 20 euro aweek or 34 for 2 week and you get back 6 euro at the end when you hand back your key.all so there is 24 hour security and thay will not stand any trouble of any kind or you will be ask to leave thats great this hotel is brill i will be back.

Room Tip: rooms on the road side are nice but you do get noise but that down to people having a good time that...

The Don Bogote is a good hotel in general. The food is very well cooked and good selection. The rooms are a bit small but ok for sleeping. Location to resort is good, just a few mins to beach. Staff were very polite and helpful.
My main problem with the hotel is, we were at the side of the hotel which has the "Bottle Bank"....at 2am in the morning I was wakened every night with the staff using the Bottle Bank...and about 6am the bin lorry would come. Could the bottle bank be filled during the day??
Also at about 7am, I could hear is the female staff chatting loudly at the Bottle Bank area...sorry ladies but there is nothing worse being woke up to a group of high pitched women chatting!!!
I also found there was a lack of sunbeds for the amount of guests staying....many times I could not get one.
I was so glad to get home for a full nights sleep!!

Room Tip: Make sure your room is not over "Bottle Bank"

My Girlfriend and I have just recently returned from a weeks stay here . The room I have to say was a tad on the small side , but perfectly comfortable as a place to get your head down . If you can battle through the ridiculous amount of abandoned mobility scooters in the reception area to get down for breakfast or dinner your actually find a reasonable standard of meal . The food is by no means 5 star but there's enough available so you don't starve . Just take some advice and don't dare walk round the buffet cart or use the drink machines you want to use . Make sure you walk everywhere in queue form otherwise there will be trouble (lol) . The pool area is very nice with plenty of space for everyone . Location wise I don't think this place can actually be beaten with the beach five minutes away and magaluf 10 - 20 minutes walk away . Nightlife wise the resort has loads packed into it . If staring gormlessly at the x factor or FOOTBALL is your idea of a great night out there's plenty of English bars to accommodate your wishes .
If you want music my recommendation would be to walk up towards Magaluf as the bars up that side seem to be less English . Magaluf itself wasn't actually awful with loads more bars , however the promo people on the street to get a little bit annoying .

In conclusion this is a belting hotel with plenty to explore all over , its just a shame that the resort as a whole is slightly spoilt with horrible overally English bars . Though theres enough other bars and things to do that let you overlook this .

Tip - if you want to escape the overally English ness id recommend a boat trip to Palma its a great city with a stunning cathedral .



Tip 2 - To contradict part of my review id recommend the Prince William as one of the best bars . Its English but isn't trying as hard to be English like some of the other places . The atomosphere in there is great With music taking centre stage and the football not overpowering .

We arrived in The Don Bigote Hotel 27 September 2013 for 10 days and needed to put a small message on Trip Advisor to let people know about this Hotel.
On our arrival to the Hotel the reception is very welcoming with lovely staff that offers advice and information about the area. We went to our room which was on the fifth floor (out of seven) looking out over the sea (you can either have pool view which is a lot quieter or Sea View where it is a little noisier due to the road below). The rooms are very small with a Twin/Double bed, bed side tables, dressing table and two chairs. The balcony is an ok size with two chairs and a table and the bathroom has a shower over the bath, with plenty of hot water, a toilet and sink. The room is an ideal size for two people, but would advise that it would be crowded if three people were it.
The pool area is lovely with a pool bar, outside toilets and loads of sunbeds. The pool offers a child’s pool, but the adult pool is very deep. If you love the sun the pool is ideal, but it does not offer a lot of shade.
The restaurant is a buffet. Breakfast offers breads, cereal, and full English breakfast. Evening meals had different soups for starter, a selection of salad, hams, and cheeses with hot food from chicken, Beef and Pork with a selection of vegetables. The deserts have cheese board, cakes, ice creams and fruit. I would advise to go to breakfast and dinner later, as this hotel is more for the older generation and they are queuing at 8am in the morning and 7pm at night (we were going for Breakfast at 9am, and then evening meal about 8pm so we did not queue).
The location is ideal – 5 minutes’ walk to the beach and local shops, bars, restaurants opposite the hotel on the way.
Overall, for what we paid – I would give the hotel 8/10 and the location 9/10.

Room Tip: This room offers 3 in a room - DO NOT DO IT, room only big enough for 2.

Stayed in the Don Bigote for the second time first time was very good but this time we had nothing but sleepless nights and it was not beacause of the stag or hen parties but a family in the room next door to ours they arrived back at 4 30 am,and were on the balcony shouting and fighting with each other and breaking things,We reported this to the hotel and nothing was done about it,this was every night of our holidays,we will not be going back there again.

Located in a beautiful location, 5 minutes from the lovely sandy beaches and shopping arcades, this hotel is a warm welcoming place, the staff are brilliant and always ready to help you, the food is absolutely top rate and is cooked to perfection with a large choice of menu every day. The pool area and bars are second to none, I will DEFINATELY go back.

Room Tip: choose any room on any floor. the are all lovely.
