With designer interiors, a standout pool scene, and nightlife on the doorstep, the Hotel Riu Don Miguel scores points on all fronts.
This place hasn’t long been revamped, and it offers up style in droves. From its smart, decked pool zone, to the Mardi Gras purple that’s used consistently throughout the hotel, everything is really contemporary.
The hotel is right in the thick of things, on Playa del Inglés’ main boulevard, just across the road from the gay-friendly Yumbo centre. You can hop on a courtesy bus to the beach, or walk it in 20 minutes.
Finally, this over-18s hotel has bagged a number of awards from the likes of TripAdvisor in 2013 and 2014. Read more ››

Another wonderful stay
lovely hotel marvellous friendly staff always a warm welcome. My second visit here and a third planned later in the year. The food is excellent and the catering staff very friendly and helpful always amazed at the number of languages they can speak. You cannot walk past the cleaning staff without them saying hello or wishing you a good day. Looking forward to my third visit.More
A great hotel, in a good location.
I booked this hotel through Expedia and having visited Gran Canaria a number of times as the hotel was in the right location for where I wanted to be. Within a 5 minute walk you can be in the Yumbo Shopping Centre, which transform in the evenings to one of the nightlife centres or within 10 minutes you can be at the kasbar, which is the other centre. The beach is about a 15 minute walk, however there is a complementary bus service. The checking in at the hotel was very simple indeed, nothing was too much trouble. I emailed the hotel 2 weeks before my visiting where I requested a room with a double bed, a view of the pool and also on one of the higher floors. When I was given my room this had all been taken into consideration. The hotel its self has a nice reception area, pool area, dining room and bar which looks like it has recently been refurbished. The room that I was in, sadly was not quite what I had expected from the impression I had received from walking in to the hotel. Donât get me wrong there was nothing wrong with the room, it was a decent size, plenty of space to hang your clothes. Very clean and tidy. The only small gripe I have is that the bathroom is starting to look tired. The bath had several stains and the toilet seat and marks where the lid had been resting over the years. If you can look past that you will be more than happy. I was extremely impressed that the room had air conditioning and also a safe that was of a decent size. The pool area, was well laid out with plenty of sun beds available. There hotel also has a jacuzzi, however, this is in the shade most of the day and wasnât heated which for me made it unusable. I booked the hotel on half board option, which includes breakfast and evening meal. Both the meals are in a buffet style. The breakfast buffet, basically had everything you could want. From bacon and eggs to pancakes and cereal. Fruit juice through to pastries. As you would expect you help yourself and can go up to the buffet as many times as you like. The time for breakfast is between 0800-1000, personally I feel that the breakfast finishes a little early and I did miss this a couple of times due to late nights. The evening meal again was buffet style with a wide range of food. Every night there was a selection of grilled meats, fish, pasta dishes, pizza so really there is something for everyone. However this can get a little repetitive. The staff in the restaurant were attentive and helpful. Two waiters that were very interactive with us were Juan Manue and David. They were constantly making us laugh, so a big thank you to them. At the hotel you are limited to 90 minutes wifi that can only be used in the receptions area. There is the option to purchase the premium wifi of which there are a number of options. However the wifi still isnât great it drops out a lot and is very slow. Overall, I loved the hotel, the location and the staff/ I would certainly look at staying here again.More

This hotel exceeded our expectations, what a surprise!
We booked this 3 star hotel at the last minute and was pleasantly surprised at how lovely it was. We were greeted by friendly helpful staff who went out of their way to ensure our stay was a memorable experience. The hotel was nicely decorated in a purple and lilac theme (two of my favourite colours) and was spotlessly clean throughout. We had daily room service, regular towel changes and little token gifts of chocolates were left on our bed once or twice. On one occasion a rose was left on the table in our room. The dining room was bright and cheerful and the menu choice was very good. The waiters and chefs worked very hard to meet demand and always found time to greet and chat with the diners - even if they didn't speak the language. The hotel was quite a distance from the beach but being keen walkers, this did not bother us. A free bus was provided for those who needed it. The bonus for us was that this was an adult only hotel and we would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Playa del Ingles who wants a nice relaxing break with 4 star treatment at 3 star prices.

Well Located & Comfortable
I have just spent 9 nights at the Don Miguel, and upon arrival was impressed with the reception and pool area - it has clearly been renovated fairly recently, and is very modern and tasteful. I felt the room was slightly at odds with this, however, being fairly typical of other Spanish hotels I have stayed in, aside from a lick of lilac paint. The room and bathroom were clean and tidy, the bed was comfortable and there was a TV in the room with English news channels, however I felt the bathroom was showing signs of wear and tear in places and could do with some attention. The balcony was large and we enjoyed sitting there in the evening. The pool area was very nice, lots of sun beds and there was sun until the evening. The breakfast and dinner offered were both good - the breakfast is among one of the best I have experienced in a Spanish catered hotel, although found the finish time of 10am to be quite early. The dinner had quite a varied choice each evening, but even so got a tad repetitive. It could also get quite crowded around the food, with some fairly long queues some evenings. The waiters in the restaurant were brilliant and attentive. There is also evening entertainment in the outside bar area - we didn't watch it, but you can hear it anyway if your room faces the pool. There is free wifi in the reception area, although it is limited and very slow. The 'premium' wifi is 20 euros for a week, which is quite steep in my opinion considering many hotels outside of Spain offer free wifi these days. The wifi itself isn't that great either, considering you are paying extra for it. The hotel is well located, being a few minutes walk from the Yumbo centre. It's a bit further from the beach and dunes, but not too bad. There is also a free shuttle to and from the beach. Overall, the hotel was great for a break - relaxed, comfortable and had everything we needed.More
Great hotel & Location by Yumbo
As a couple we had a great winter week away in early March 2015 - generally modern and good service. Pool / pool side was pleasant and good sun exposure. Restaurant was large. We found it a little canteen like / shoving around with the set meal times. However , requesting a table outside in a quaint area helped a lot and the a la carte option was excellent . Great next to the commercial centre and great central sport to explore other areas of the island . Hotel overall I would say is a 'good 3 star' . More
