Reviewed April 30, 2014

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

Lovely hotel. Found staff really nice and helpfull .only down side was the sunbeds were very uncomfortable as they did not have a back that went up and down but beach was close to hotel so only a minor issue. Could do with a better variety of food bt in what was on offer could always find something to eat. Rooms cleaned daily. Great location

Ok, positives first, good shower in the bathroom, nice view of pool and wooded hillside from our balcony and the drinks are not expensive!
Bad stuff, bear with me, there's a lot! I'm not that fussy a person but the rooms are small and badly set out, wardrobe is tiny and you have little space and you can't even get at the drawers under it because the bedside cabinet is in the way, it can't be moved as it's fixed like the wooden bed base. Bring a hair dryer with you or you'll have to hire one, like with safe deposit boxes, irons, tvs, etc. We asked for twin bedded and got 2 single mattresses on a double bed base! The sink in our bathroom leaked, we complained, after I tripped on the water on the floor, it was repaired. One afternoon, there was a knock on the door, it was the one of the hotel maintenance men to check if the balcony was safe, why where we given this room if the balcony wasn't checked before?! We came back another afternoon to find that the main door to our room was unlocked, we complained again. When the maid cleaned the room she'd always leave the balcony doors open and unlocked, even after we asked for security purposes that it was locked! The security in this hotel is a joke! The balcony door bolts are on the outside of the door, yes that's right the OUTSIDE! There is a wooden screen outside but you can't lock that, it just slides open and shut. There is a security guard at night, one night we were here and he was on our floor 3 times in one night for all the good it did. This is a noisy hotel so forget getting any sleep! Party goers come back at all times of the night and in all states, so not a suitable hotel for children or older people. Food is hit and miss, pot luck whether it's edible or not. Some nights it was great, really nice food, others it was luke warm and mushy! On the other hand Palma Nova is full of great restaurants and is a fantastic place with a great beach, crystal clear blue waters, lovely people and loads to do! Would I come back to Palma Nova, yes absolutely! To the Don Bigote NO WAY!!

We stayed at the Don Bigote from 19th -22nd Apr 2014, the age group was between 17 to 72 yrs. The hotel was very clean, rooms cleaned & change towels every day, we had 2 rooms overlooking the pool which is lovely as you have sun on balcony from late morning & we had 1 room at the front which was also fine as you have a sea view. Food & drink from pool bar good value, very friendly staff even let us do birthday cake in the evening & gave us knife & plates for it. The evening meals were great, breakfasts were fine nothing special but did the job. I stayed in this hotel in 1987 & I loved it then, so brought good memories back for me. Everyone said they would stay in this hotel again, its a very good 2 star, better than some 3 stars I've stayed in, so don't let that put you off. It's in a great location just across the road to the beach & not far to walk into magaluf & about 4€ in a taxi. Some good bars across the road, Banana joes, Cheeks & Alex's worth going to. All in all we had a great time.

When we first arrived at the hotel , we recieved the frostiest welcome . The staff were extremly rude and we're not able to give us basic places to visit etc. we had a bad experience with the cleaners on our last morning , our check out was 12 o'clock and they arrived at 11 telling us to get out etc and stood at the door until we got our stuff together. As for the food, if you are planning to stay in this hotel do not book food , it is terrible !, so basic and very little choice. The servers of the food stared at us while eating and collected my friends plates before thy were finished. We found it very difficult to enjoy the hotel due to the staff, I have never in all my years of travelling witnessed something like it . I will not be back !

Recently spent a weekend at don bigote, Easter weekend. Overall lovely hotel would definitely go back there, food was lovely. Would request a higher floor due to the noise above us from rowdy group of stags. Worth the money though especially for 3 nights. Magaluf 5 min walk away. Good location
