Hotel Riu Don Miguel  

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.

Hotel with great service

This Riu hotel was refurbished a couple of years ago and now has a modern feel to it. The rooms are adequately sized with fridge,ceiling fan, safe (charged) and aircon. the room is kept spotless and sheets and towels changed at will. The buffet restaurant has 2 sittings and a set table for dinner for your entire stay. Food variety is good with plenty of salads,choice of meats,choice of fish, several vegetables and differently cooked potatoes. There is always 2 hot soups plus a cold one and a good selection of rolls and bread,plenty of fruit and pastries. Wine and soft drinks are usual price for hotels but wine cannot be kept for another day but small bottles and carafes are available. Most hot food is show cooked and often overcooked on the planchers but chefs will do to order for you. Waiting staff are polite ,friendly and efficient although breakfast times overworked particularly friday and saturdays when the is lack of food, plates, milk or bread at busy times. There is an Al a carte restaurant with no extra charge but with a limited menu but well worth booking as the food is excellently cooked and presented. The ambiance is good but in the need of background music as there is never many in so people tend to talk quietly not to be overheard. The pool area is very nice(although being repaired during my stay) with plenty of sun beds and parasols. there is a gym and an outdoor jacuzzi. Evening entertainment has become very repetitive with only a resident band or DJ.The band has a good repertoire and the girls rendition of Roberta Flack's "Killing me softly" very good but diminished by hearing it 9 times in a fortnight. Overall this is a typical well run Riu hotel and does justice to its 3 * by making long trousers compulsory at dinner and moving towels prior to 09.00 from unattended sunbeds. It is very central to Playa Del Ingles so some rooms may be noisy and a shuttle bus needed for the beach. Due to its proximity to the Yumbo centre it is popular with the gay community but this may only cause alarm to the narrow minded,More

Modern, good-service, clean and nice

This hotel was quite a surprise. It is clean and modern and doesn't have the same dated look as so many other places in Playa del Ingles. The room I had was not big but more then ok and was kept very clean and with a nice balcony. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, without a comment I could switch to another room after my first night and you were always greeted with a smile. The pool area is good, lots of sunbeds and a clean pool with in-water sunbeds, liked those! There is also a small gym with some machines for the sporty ones. It's half board with a decent breakfast buffet with all you could want and a surprisingly good diner buffet with lot's to choose from, much better than others I've had in Spain and elsewhere. The hotel is located in a central location in Playa del Ingles. Those thinking of trying out the night life in the (in-)famous Yumob Centrum will find that it's just two streets away ;) Only downside is that it's rather fram from the beach, but they offer a free shuttle service. And there are streets in every direction more or less, could be noisy for some rooms (try to get one facing the pool). I was in all very happy and will come back.More

very good hotel.

Myself and my partner, and friends went for 2 weeks,starting on the 29th September, first the hotel, cant fault it, food adequate, repetitive and sometimes food is tepid, but out of 10, only. 8, the waiting staff are very good, always ready to help, so eating staff, out of10, got to be a 9, would've been 10, but one every day walked around with a face like thunder, I think his wife said no. Reception staff, you Can only say 10 out of 10, brilliant. The bar , waiters/waitresses, once you get their attention, very good, but sometimes you can sit for 5minutes, so out of 10, only 7, chamber maids, brilliant, so helpful , you ask for anything and they are there, clean towels, toilet rolls, other pillows, so got to be 10 out of 10. Now my only criticism, the hotel entertainment, resident trio, trio Shelley, absolutely awful, a drummer with the smallest set of drums, and 2 bongos, but he did sound ok, on the organ is a portly little chap who plays and sings, excuse me while I laugh, he cant have any good friends, or they would tell him, he is awful, and inter middle is this girl, who hopped from one foot to the other holding a Mike, then she bursts into life, I'm joking, she attempts to sing, but you cant hear her, she has such a weak voice, they go on stage, for 15 to 20 mins, then they have a 30 minute break, which is the best part of the act, because they put background music on that you can understand. On Sat 4th Oct, claiming dancing, well I thought it was a man on a guitar, and a lady in traditional dress, on stage a disc jockey (said with gritted teeth) a man on guitar, and a lady?? In a white evening dress, (and a CHAIR), the music started by the disc jockey you couldn't hear the guitarist, and then the fun, the lady was walking up and down the stage waving one arm about while waving the hem of the dress about, and when it came tohe foot tapping, she sat on the chair and banged her feet. I could go on but I'm getting bored thinking about it, so marks, out of 10, pause while I think, oh yea, only 3, was going. To be 2, but thought an extra point for having the bloody nerve to turn up. Can recommend Roberto tours, although the navigator Carlos wasn't that good, got us lost ont top the mountain covered in mist, 10 out of 10, (they are our friends we went with, promised to mention them) overall please go you will enjoy it,(if you go out to other bars for entertainment).More

Friendly staff, fantastic food and comfortable rooms

Staff at all levels are very welcoming, helpful and approachable. Every question gets and answer, every issue gets resolved. I even had a chat with the manager, cleaning staff, waiters, Maitre D etc. Both the breakfast and dinner buffets are fantastic: wide choice, good ingredients, well-cooked and nicely presented. And by the way, no worries about long queues and a "run on the buffet" as there are two dinner servings and tables are allocated. The rooms are sufficiently large, very clean and nicely appointed. The beds are very comfortable and the showers have more than enough pressure and very hot water if needed. We have now found our hotel in Playa del Ingles and are planning on going back a couple of times next year. And to the manager of the hotel (you know already anyway): Juan (Maitre D) and Manolo (our waiter) are brilliant. See you again soonMore

Should be 4*

Great 10day stay here, staff very helpful & cheerful, great facilities, lovely pool, and jacuzzi pool, always spaces available. Meals were good although breakfast could be a bit samey. Asked for pool view via email but no reply. When arrived was told we had the room we requested -superb 4th floor. Went with jet2 but little sign of rep, made up our own plans. So much to see from this location. Weather very few days below 30' nights lovely. Entertainment for everyone virtually anywhere you looked, souvenir shopping is bit tat/junk, suggest Las palmas for real shopping. In all at this time yr area caters for German, Danish etc. Would defo recommend this hotel for couples. Big thanks to all the staff at this hotel for making our stay great. More
