The Don Manalo hotel is situated about 400 metres from the beach and close to the bustling centre of Magaluf. Bedrooms are well equipped with a balcony. The hotel also has two bars one of which runs alongside the large outdoor swimming pool and there is a television and games room, a boutique and souvenir shop. The Hotel Don Manalo also provides a seasonal programme of daytime sporting activities, organised each day by their resident animation team, featuring petanque, archery and aerobics as well as evening entertainment with live music, cabaret and other professional shows several times each week, the Don Manalo is and ideal family destination.

Magaluf is a great place but the don manalo is s**t. The food is discustin and the room was like a carboard box. Staff dont no how t smile and say thanx. Overall i loved the holiday but nt the hotel

The night life is really good and near by. I would recommend the actual place.

Not to sure about Don manalo the staff are really rude and the food is a bit repetative.

But it did have a good atmosphere not really a family hotel but if you are going with you mates then it's ok as you can get drunk 24 7!

We did have a great time and saw a lot of drunk people sleeping in the hotel corridors which was amusing!

If you do go hope you have a great time though! (Kent)

Hotel full of stag and hen parties. Very noisy all night with banging and kicking of doors. Police called a few times. Walls paper thin, could hear people using toilets next room. Food very basic and repetitive. Suitable for young people out to spend all day and night drinking. Not recommended for families or older people who want peaceful holiday. (Bangor)

"Do not bring your family here!!!!

Do not bring your family here!!!!
Bring your mates!!!!!
The hotel is only suitable for groups of mates (stags and hens), and so is populated by them, so if you are looking for a peaceful break do not come here!!

Do come here if you want a cheap break, in a 24-hour ‘party’ resort. The bars in the hotel offer local beer (which is ok after the 6th one) and local sprits (and a choice of 4 cocktails). The food is of a ‘school dinners’ standard, but you shouldn’t be coming here for the food (I do recommend the cooked breakfast, which is served about 1/2 hour after the last club kicks out).
The beach and pubs and clubs are about a 5-minute walk from the hotel. No need for a taxi into town!
We paid 28 Euros to get from the Airport, in a taxi.

The British mainly use the hotel, so no worries about putting towels out on sun loungers at 6am to beat the Germans. I did not see any entertainment during the day, but one evening there was a local band playing some songs (do not bother to stay in especially to see it).
The rooms were ‘cleaned’ once a day with a change of towels. The hotel staff do seem to be used to ‘rowdy’ parties and have a low tolerance level, some evenings there was a police presence in or near the hotel.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel for a group of mates, who have minimal requirements – alcohol and lots of it! close to Magualuf!
If you go to the Don Manolo I hope you have a good time.
Darren. (Littlehampton)

The rooms where ok pretty basic but where fine. Lots of young people which was good but not so good for the families that got put there. We where all inclusive and the food was disgusting worst I have ever tasted only lived on rolls and cheese and it was almost the same every day would not advise any one to go all inclusive. The pool was ok just not big enough for the size of the apartments. Dont think i would go back here. (BROXBURN)

Hotel was clean . Food was quite good but repeated after a few days so i got fed up with pasta and salad - not much other things i liked. We paid out for Breakfast as hotel's was not too good and it was cheap in local british pub. Hotel is supposed to have family entertainment on thru day & night but they were useless - we felt sorry for those families with children who either played in the pool or had 1 hour with entertainers doing same thing every morning and night for 1 hour only. Adult entertainment was pretty awful too so good job it was all inclusive so we got drunk at least. Nightlife is excellent but apart from a few bars it is mainly for groups of young lads or girls. We were told Hotel was 6 km ( 4 miles ) way from airport as we had to make our own way there, it was actually about 35 miles away and cost 34 euros ( good job we had changed enough cash before leaving ). On way back we shared with another couple and it cost 32 euros between 4 of us so worth sharing if you can. Basically i would not recommend this place if you want a full entertainmnet programme or too varied a menu. It is just basic really and not the best holiday i had but certainly not the worst. It is however very noisy between 4-7am with doors slamming and lads/girsl shouting off balconies etc. Local pubs to go to are Green Parrott - very funny Geordie DJ and Brittannia pub ( ok for the not so young ie 30's up ).

We went to this so called family hotel, we got there and there was only about six families the rest were all stag and hen partys, we had to put the children to bed in the afternoon because they never got any sleep at night due to the noise and people jumping and throwing things over the balconys. The food was inedible as it was all leftovers from the day before so we had to pay again to eat out. The young lads on the stag party were using the pool as a toilet so that had to be closed for cleaning. The best and only part of the hotel we enjoyed were the entertainers who did a fanstastic job. So thanks to jonny, naz, raffa, kez and stacey.
We were picked up from the hotel at 7.25am on the day of leaving they were no drinks or snacks available unless you paid again for a can of pop.

This was the second all inclusive hoilday ive had and after the first I was keen to go all inclusive again , and I can sucessfully say it will be my last! The quality of the food was absolutly appauling, with deep fat fried hotdogs and chips for breakfast being passed of as sasuages and hash browns. Along with 'veal' on the menu every night which came in the form of meat balls! The hotel its self is dated and the bedrooms rather unclean! Magaluf its self has good night life and I probably would go back however definatly NOT to the Don Manalo.

Arived late at night, no drink's available in hotel tea or coffee.
Room very small, bathroom was like a little cubby hole, no view of pool or sea, like stated in book. Food was very basic for all inclusive, and you had to use plastic cutlery if you were not in after first hour. After the fourth day they closed the pool bar, and you had to go inside bar, but if you were wet you was not let in. I must say it was the worst all inclusive hotel I have been to. If it was my first I would not do inclusive again.

Well we went to the DON MANALO in May2002 We had never been All inclusive before
so wasn't really sure what to except. This Hotel is a very busy one to say the least. There were a couple of HEN PARTIES/STAG PARTIES which we didn't except so as you can imagine things got abit loud. The Hotel has great food and i must admit my sons a bit fussy what he eat, but he never stopped The Staff are great
The rooms are Big there were 3 of us and we had a four beded room Plenty of space. Entertainment is for the under 5 not much for over 10s. BINGO every night and you can win good money It wasn't a bad holiday for all inclusive, value for money. Don't forget to take the mossy cream.

This was the first all inclusive holiday we had been on so did not know what to expect. The food was ok, fair choice, what appeared to be yesterdays veg fried etc. Drinks and icecreams good, hotel room was a bit shabby with brocken tiles in bathroom and brocken electricity plug point but this was mended when reported to hotel staff. Some very loud guests also staying at hotel, seemed to be up all night. The entertainment was good and the kids had a great time joining in. Had to get up early to get a sunbed round the pool but only a short walk to the beach. Overall we had a good time but would not want to go back
