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 ››

Top Class 3* (should be 4* !!) Hotel
Having stayed at the 4* Hotel Neptuno for a number of years, we opted to try the Don Miguel Hotel on this visit, since roadworks on the main road where the Neptuno is situated has forced it's closure for 2 months. Why the Don Miguel is rated 3* is beyond me since it has absolutely everything the Neptuno has to offer. On arriving here, you are greeted in a clean, modern and spacious reception. We had asked for a poolside room and were given room 202. This overlooked the pool, patio and stage area at the back of the hotel. The room was really fresh and modern, - even more spacious than Neptuno rooms. Bathroom was well equipped too. Air con in the room was in the form of a ceiling fan which actually did the job really well. There was also a fridge to put your water etc. Nice flatscreen TV in rooms, but English channels were limited to Sky / BBC news. Onto the restaurant: this hotel is somewhat bigger than others we have stayed in, so the restaurant area is quite big. This can be quite busy at times, but we asked for a table outside on the patio area for our evening meal - which was duly given. This was a little quieter than the main area. After reading some of the so-so reviews on here about the food, I was pleasantly surprised. Every night, there were loads of salad, vegetables and breads on offer, along with hot meats. fish, roasts and pasta etc from the hot counter. If you like desserts, there is also a wide choice available. Breakfast was the usual fayre: Breads, Pastries, cheeses, meats, fruits,salad, cereal, along with the hot stuff: tomatoes, beans, potatoes, bacon, sausage, eggs etc. There is also unlimited coffee, tea, water and juices. This hotel is within 15 minutes walk of Playa beach and less than 5 minutes away from the famous Yumbo centre. Other info: maids clean the rooms every day to high standard. The pool area has plenty of sun beds. The pool itself is quite big and was not that cold. Nice patio area for chilling out at night. Entertainment was put on at least 4 nights of the week. The only niggles I would have (.....and I am looking hard for something to moan about here!!!) is that the Wi-Fi is not all that good. You get 90 minutes free each day, - but you have to sitting in the reception area. This is PAINFULLY slow. You can opt to pay 20EURO for unlimited Wi-Fi (anywhere in hotel) but this is also very slow. Also, the towels in the hotel have probably seen better days. Having said that, they are clean and usable. All in all, my first visit here made a very favourable impression and I would definitely stay here again.More

Good experience but a few issues
The hotel Riu Don Miguel is a nice 3 stars hotel, located, just 2 minutes walk from the Yumbo centre, shops, bars and restaurants. It is a very gay friendly hotel with very welcoming staff. The reception area, as well as the pool area and restaurants are very modern, and stylish. The hotel is about 20 minutes walk from Praya del Ingles and 5 minutes on the taxi from Maspalomas beach. Breakfast was very good with great selection. Dinner was amazing with a great quality, variety and very tasty. Great selection of fish, meat, salads, cheese and deserts. The only problem is that the hotel has 2 seats for dinner, one at 18.30 and another at 20.30. Unfortunately we werenât able to book the 20.30 table for the first 2 night as it was full booked, what meant that we had to have dinner very earlier and not been able to be in the beach later. Would be good if we would have had the choice of selecting the dinner time at the time of the booking of the hotel. I was also very disappointed by the lack of complimentary wifi in the rooms. The hotel offers only 90mins free internet per day but only in the reception area. Finally, I was also surprised by the bad quality of the towels in the room, very thin, old and sometimes with holes on it.More

my Canaries holiday
the pool and sunbathing areas were excellent, very spacious and well appointed, the reception staff were courteous and helpful, however, many of the rooms were a route march away from the reception and the first floor wasn't served by the lift, so guests with walking difficulties may have a problem. The restaurant was on a lower level and lacked ambience, food was adequate.More
Not a drunken lout in sight
There weren't a lot of mixed couples here but the Mr with me still found it more comfortable than being surrounded by lager louts in football shirts. Not that I am saying all football fans are louts I hasten to add.The food was great and the beds comfy. I am slightly put off by brown towels and sachet bath gels but that's just fussy I guess. The staff were lovely and the pool area was clean and litter free. The negative of being on a main road meant traffic noise gave me a disturbed sleep but it wasn't too much of a problem for my other half, so depends on what you're used to or how good your hearing is. The yumbo centre is certainly lively and compared to 4 euros for a beer in the hotel you canfind lots of 2 euro pints down there. Don't be put off by any reference to this is the being the gay capital. Unless you are seriosly uncomfortable by same sex couples (Get a life) then don't miss all fun.But back to the hotel it is very much as it looks in the brochure. Very purple and lilac and well maintained.There was always a fresh supply of food being prepared and gebeing allocated a set table for dinner during the time you are there saves a free for all trying to get a seat .It's not perfect, but there's not much to fault.More
