You definitely get what you pay for.
The hotel was good for what me and my girlfriend paid for it. However, we couldn't sleep at all on our first night, as there were people running up and down the corridors, banging on doors trying to sell us cocaine. We were staying on the first floor, which we later discovered is where they put all of the younger guests, as we were 17 at the time. We asked to move to a higher floor as we couldn't sleep, this was on the Monday, and they didn't move us until Wednesday. EXCELLENT location though, hotel is basic but has everything that you would need. Strongly recommend that future guests visit Reflex Bar and Banana Joe's, great atmosphere. If you're young, I also recommend MCP nights in Magaluf. People rant on about how amazing BCM is, I wasn't that keen. MCP offers you six different bars around the strip, 25 euros and drinks are unlimited all night, needless to say it was a long stumble on the way back to the hotel.

Fantastic holiday in Palma nova
Could not fault this hotel. It's family run which is really nice. The food is good and the staff are lovely. They look after you well. The rooms are quite basic but its all we needed. The hotel is about ten minute walk from maga but loads of bars n restaurants near by as we'll as a beautiful beach. Loads to c and do. Would defo go back to this hotel.

not appropriate for young children
we booked this accommodation for the location as it was far enough away from magaluf. The rooms are small but are cleaned everyday. The food was excellent no complaints at all and the staff are very friendly. But dont book if you like sleep as we did not get a decent nights sleep due to other guests running and screaming up the corridors from around 4am to 7.30am even though security told them to be quiet. And when you did get up there was sick and condoms on some of the corridors. This hotel is not suitable for families or couples wanting a relaxing holiday because you end up being tired all day long. there is no kettle no fridge and no television. the fridge costs 3 euros a day and did not keep drinks cool enough. Will not be visiting the Don Bigote again.

My little girls first holiday abroad
My family and i have been the the Hotel Don Bigote in previous years and so we decided to take my daughter there this year even though she is not quite 2 yet. this hotel is not listed as a family hotel but the staff are fantastic with children. We could not have hoped for more when it came to making sure we all had a fun and relaxed holiday.
The flight out to Majorca was good with the exception of a member of the cabin crew who decided that he was not going to help us when needed. On the way back we had to ask for a belt extension as they had not thought to give us one and we were moments away from taking off.
I would still use the airline again as apart from this it was a very smooth journey.

Our first holiday together!
For a first holiday together it wasn't half bad. We didnt have a huge budget so Don Bigote was perfect. You get what you pay for, we went with an open mind as some of the reviews are awful, and to be honest we were pleasently suprised! The food is average! It gets very samey but it is fine to eat.
The pool/pool area has sunbeds and is clean, what more would you want?!
Yes there are lot's of groups and it can be quite noisy, but you are 5 mins away from Magaluf so we weren't suprised! The rooms are clean and maids come every day so it was all in all pleasent.
Be warned though the air conditioning is horrendous!! It's noisy and not cold enough! Open the door and close the shutters!!! By the way, Palma Nova beach is BEAUTIFUL.
