Stag & Hen do City
"for Â£30 a night, including all you can eat and all you can drink 24 hours a day then go here. Full of hen parties and stag do's. Can't think what to imagine in the peak of the summer.... Rooms are VERY basic. No TV. Shower spewed out brown water for 5 minutes before becoming transparent. Don't add too much water pressure or you end up filling the room. Toilet was wedged into the corner - therefore no room for your legs... Door was paper thin - don't leave valuables - you just get the sense that things will get stolen - there are safe deposit boxes though. Stayed for a couple of nights, arrived back late, woken up early on both days by the maids trying to clean the room, although goodness knows why as they actually didn't clean anything......"

"Took my mom to the Don Manolo for a quite break at the end of September. We were just looking for a cheap all inclusive and this was it. Arrived quite late but still food available. The food varied a bit but was not very warm most days. Pool quite small but ok and beach not far away. Bars just round the corner and Pirates directly over road. No problems with room or hotel in general (just make sure if you're departing late in the day you need to book a slot in the shower in reception!!!) As we went quite late in the season was pretty empty, still had most entertainment and the staff tried to make the most of it bless them especially Jonny (very cute) and Rafa. Probably a lot better mid season, but a holiday is what you make it."

"this hotel was great, simlpe rooms but they were always tidied up...the food was nothing Flash but really nice. the location is perfect, you can lounge by the pool allday in the sun, or a very short walk into plalma or a short walk to magaluf on an evening. this is a hassle free hotel where you can enjoy your holiday without worring about anything."

"hey people just returned today from a weeks all inclusive to the DON MANOLO...............
O MY GOD
this is a bad hotel, as the title goes the food gives u the trotts and the ale is watered down , the only thing i enjoyed about my stay in the don manolo is that i escaped every night out of the hotel..........
i read the reviews on here and me and my girlfriend thought it cant be that bad, it is probably some old stuck-up people writing the reviews. but the bad ones are true ....
SO BE WARNED PEOPLE " DON MANOLO " GIVES YOU THE TROTTS."

Its still 3 star....
"If you wanna get drunk every night, and then hit the town, then you got your hotel. If you want to eat well, clean rooms, and quiet in the evenings, I would suggest going to an old persons home. Fantastic for those in the right frame of mind, but to be fair, the food is shocking. We ate out 10 out of 14 nights, but always ended up back at the hotel to take advantage of all those free Vodka Oranges."

A decent visit!!!
"We have just returned from a weeks all inclusive visit to Don Manolo, and reading some reports wondered if we had made the right decision...but still travelled with an open mind.
On arrival, the hotel seemed black and dirty but on entering the reception area the image had totally changed. Its like walking into another hotel, clean and tidy looking.
As soon as we went to reception for check in, and throughout the holiday we considered the staff to be of an excellent service and were helpful throughout.
On entering the room, our first impressions were standard, but being a 3* hotel we wern't expecting anything more. Clean rooms and storage space to accomodate all of our possesions, including safes, which must be rented at reception for a small fee.
As we got there quite late, the last snacks were available from the restaurant which was ok if just a bit warmer. But that was the only meal that i disliked. The other meals were in my opinion to a high enough standard and plenty of choice throughout the day.
Some people complained about the small amount of sunbeds available by the pool side, but i thought there was plenty and was always some available at any time of the day.
The hotel is in walking distance of the main attractions, Aqualand, Western Water Park, Pirates and the main strip.
We only experienced one problem with out room, and that was the toilet started to leak when the chain was flushed. After reporting it to reception they sent a bloke out within the hour.
Overall i thought the Don Manolo was a great hotel and would definately reccomend it to those wishing to visit.
Thank you staff!!!!!!!
Happy Holidays to the Don Manolo!!!"

never again !!
"After reading a few off the reviews was a bit worried about going. it was a last min all inclusive deal for myself and friend for a quick get away. where do i start: the entertainment was rubbish, bar staff rude, unhelpful, reception staff as the bar staff. It was meant to be a family hotel !!! it was full off single sexed groups, with some family parties, the noise from the hotel at night was a nightmare, from 4am onto 7am music blearing, shouting, things being thrown. how anybody could sleep though that, it should never include famillies should be a 18-30 holiday hotel.
the food was copable was always hot and plentiful staff were happy and helpful and included pic nic's if you were going to the beach for the day.
The alcohol was unrecognizable. i would never go there again."

"i was in this hotel for 9 day's all inclusive, and thought the staff was arrogant, never wanted to help. the food was terrible an i ended up eating out cause after 2 nights i relised the food was the same has the night before, i went in the restaurant each night but the food was still the same choice. the cleaners never actually cleaned up, all the done was tided the bed sheets, we had black marks over the bed sheets even after we complained to the reception. my final advise is DON'T GO, LOOK SOMEWHERE ELSE"

It is actually worth a visit!!
"After reading the reviews of this hotel i was naturally a little worried about what to expect. When we arrived at the hotel i was further worried as the outside of the hotel does not appear to be the greatest, but inside its as nice as any hotel that you would expect to find in mallorca.
The location of the hotel don manolo is superb! it is next door to pirates, only 15min walk from all the major waterpalks and only a 10 - 15 min walk from the main strip.
The only problem that i felt was the food. We went all inclusive to this hotel and the food was either too repetitive or simply unedible. So we ate out most of the time. This was a fantastic holiday but some guests were so loud and the hotel evicted 17 rooms on our first night!!
The entertainment is not all that but look out for the really cool barry from eastenders look a like.
All in all i really enjoyed this hol and there were only 2 thefts whilst we were there...neither were to the party i was in. The 2 guests did not have deposit boxes....make sure you get 1!!!
The chambermaids are fantastic and the rooms are basic yes, but what more do you want from a hotel of this grading?
I don't think that i'd go back to Don Manolo unless it became a self-catering hotel, this would be the ideal hotel then.
Don't be put off the hotel from previous reviews...it is good!!"

"I went to Magaluf in July 2007 with my girlfriends and we wonât forget it! It was all we wanted!
We went all inclusive and thatâs the best option for party goers, we drank all week and was well worth the price we paid for the holiday.
The staff at the hotel are really friendly and willing to help with anything.
Entertainment in the evening is a real laugh. Everyone gets involved and was awesome!
The only fault with this hotel is the food, not much choice. Us girls lived on chips and bread rolls all week; the only good thing about that is we shifted a few pounds. Although Tom Browns in the town is a must for the food, serving lush breakfasts and full English roast on a Sunday - both great for curing the hangovers!
The nightlife in Magaluf is truly immense; BCM is wicked 25 euros to get in but all drinks are free when you get in and you get free BCM merchandise.
I really cannot wait to go back next year with the girls again. Will be stopping in this hotel again as the all inclusive deal was good with all the alcohol.

"Myself and 9 friends stayed at the Don Manolo July 2007 and it was unbelievable.
Easily the Best holiday I have ever had.
The location was brilliant as it was only a short walk to the beach, shops and the Magaluf strip but most of all it was in a peaceful area with not many other hotels within 100 yards. This was brilliant at night as the noise from the Magaluf strip could not be heard.
The only issue we had was the repetition of food. Everything else from the rooms to the pool was fantastic and the drink selection was awesome.
We are truly devastated this year as the hotel is fully booked up throughout July. The Don Manolo was definitely our first choice hotel, itâs much better than the other 3 hotels Iâve stayed at in Magaluf.
