“Ignore the bad reviews, Excellent value for money!”
Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

First of all, the hotel is in an ideal location just across from the beach and not far from magaluf (ten minute walk). We had no problem with noise at the hotel and the staff were brilliant. Its a perfect base for those wanting to chill out during the day before heading to magaluf on the night. Rooms are basic but clean and BEWARE THE MAIDS ARE NOT TO BE TRUSTED! Would stay here again!!!

I stayed in the Don Bigote from the 21st - 26th May with two of my friends. We found the hotel staff very friendly in reception and the restaurant, the cleanliness of the hotel is excellent. We had no problems with the food, there was always something to eat, one day we had a roast beef and pork and Yorkshire pudding!
It is only a 2 star hotel and you get what you pay for, this was our second visit to this hotel and we would always go back. The room was plenty big enough for 3 ladies to get ready.
Well done Don Bigote!

I have stayed here twice now and both time have always been fine. Clean room, facilities fine no problems. This hotel is ideal if you are young and using is fir a base to go into magaluf and oarty. Safe to say there are older people staying at the hotel around ma june so loud coming in at 5am isnt appreciated at that time of the year. However, the shocking reviews are to be taken with a pinch of salt.

Food: regular spanish hotel food, salad, spag bol, meat pie and veg, pizza, paella etc etc. puddongs were lovely too. The brekfast is fine too.

Pool: quite deep for the main part. But there is a child part and a shallow end. Clean pool area no probs at all.

The location is fab too. Near the beach n the beach is lovely!!! 15 min walk to magaluf or a 2 min taxi ride as there is taxi rank around the corner.

The only issue i have re: this hotel is THE MAIDS!!! I had been warned before that things had gone missing from ppls rooms so to be careful we only usually have the room cleaned so many times a week not every day. This time June 2013 we decided to let the room be cleaned and what happenns..... I get x2 packets of eylashes stolen. I paid a decent amount of money for them andthey were un opened in a box in a bag. It not to say that they were taken by mistake for rubbish as we had an empty bottle and empty mc d's box from the night before there and they were not taken??? So i would say they were stolen. It may seem minor but i bought them to last me throughout the holiday and under no circumstances is it ok for someone to steel them!! I was going to report this to the reception but i had seen reviews on here that said they had things taken e.g. Money n nothing got done about it. So i thought i would WARN EVERYONE ON HERE!!!!

Like i said before the hotel itself- no issues. You get what you pay for. But do nt let the maids clean your room!! It aint safe. Safe to say i will NOT be returning to Don Bigote..... Again!!!

Just spent a week here with my best friend, we are two young girls aged 20 & 22. I must admit after reading the reviews on here I was a little put off - but I was plesantly suprised when we arrived at the hotel. It is clean & comfortable. The rooms are small and compact but it has everything you need! Our room was serviced by maids everyday with clean towels & beds being made. Yes it is not perfect or first class but you get what you pay for. There was always plenty of food & variety - we were never disappointed. The meat was so tender & tasty, you could tell it had been cooked for hours. The mains tended to change every night including pasta, paella, meat pie, chicken curry & much more. We didn't use the poolside snack bar so I can't really comment on that however, we did spend most of our days around the pool which was lovely. All I will say is that it is not a very lively hotel & although groups do go here it is more for the older generation. Despite this we still had a great holiday & generally have no complaints for this hotel. Like i said: Don't let these reviews put you off.

Room Tip: We had a room facing the Lively hotel which got no sun at all, the rooms facing the pool are better...

the hotel was clean, and the staff friendly. You wasnt too far from the beach. There was a couple of things i would mention, which was the hotel looks in need a renovate to make it more modern, the rooms are not big, there was just 2 in our room, god knows what the room would be like with 3 people in them. oh and the last thing was they dont label the food up, so in some cases you was guessing what you was eating!!, but overall had a good holiday.

Spent 10 days in this hotel in may 2013. Lovely hotel. Food was great and plenty of choice, always something different meat wise every night. Plenty of salad and puddings as well. Staff were lovely and very helpful. Maid service and clean towels every day. Pool side snack bar really reasonable prices and food there lovely. Very handy to shops, bars and restaurants . Very handy for beach. Great pub across from it called Banana Joes. Really nice batman called Jed. Only thing was I found this hotel was full of mainly pensioners so not great for my 13 year old. Thanks to Alan for opening up the pool every day. Would recommend this hotel to couples but not families at that time of year. Would certainly go back.
