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 ››

These stylish contemporary twin rooms with striking soft furnishings can sleep up to three. They come with twin beds and a fold-out third bed, ceiling fan, minibar on request, satellite TV with limited English channels, phone and balcony or terrace.

Visited in August with my partner the hotel its self is amazing clean,modern,close to all amenities the only let down was the rude staff the first night we arrived was late we went in the bar for some water in the room we stood there 10 min for the lights to be turned off on us whilst in the bar so went to reception to be told there was a vendor downstairs we made our way there to find out it was out of order so made our way back to reception to be told tuff you will have to wait until morning after a 4 hour flight and 3 hours in the airport all I wanted was a quick drink.
The food is ok they ask on arrival what time you would like to dine the following day we said 6.30pm would be fine only to be told the rest of the week when arriving at the restaurant that was our set time for the week. I must say I have stayed in Riu hotels a lot and this one has made me question if I would use them again. More
Fantastic food great location but limited Wifi
Stayed here in June 2015 for 2 weeks the hotel was clean , food was excellent close to the yumbo, staff were helpful but WiFi was free for only 90 minutes a day and only in the lobby I think they could really do with letting have all guests have free WiFi in their room for free as do other hotels in the area I would stay here again as long as standards do not slip.More

Excellent, adult only escape!
We recently stayed here in June 2015.
The hotel was spoteless and rooms tastefully decorated and of a decent size for our one week stay. The hotel is half-board, with no alternatives which we found rather frusttrating however we are easily adaptable and found it farily hassle free. However, one point which was particularly dissapointing is that the hotel staff do not let you pay your bill throughout the holiday, instead they insist that you pay the balance at the end of the week. The bill can add up gievn that your drinks at dinner, coffees and even ice creams throughout theday must be charged to the room. we would have rather paid the bill each day.
Other than this we loved our time here.
The hotel arrange a shuttle bus to the beach which runs all day everyday.
Taxis in the local area are very cheap also if you wish you travel further afield.
We would recommend the local market and the Thalassotherapy spa (out of this world) as two fun, eay going things to do whilst you are on holiday. A taxi to the thalassotherapy spa is only around six euro from the hotel! Staff and Reps are very helpfull too.More

Breakfast buffet was excellent loved it all!! walking into Dinner was like walking into the the titanic ship. dinner could be better to be honest. wifi wasnt that great, but we managed to find a spot where it was.More
Modern adult focused hotel
The hotel has had a make over and the rooms are bright and modern. The cleaners do a great job and kept the room nice and clean with plenty of towels and toiletries. A fridge is a great benefit and wasn't expected being a 3* hotel. The A/C worked very well in the room.
The restaurant does the usual
Riu two sittings in the evening, no problem swapping to the later option on check in. The food is always fresh with good choice and kept at the correct temperature.
The pool area is not massive for the amount of rooms and the usual problem of sun beds being reserved and never used happened, the hotel really needs to adopt a policy for this problem. That said, the pool was clean and modern.
The staff in the hotel are helpful and pleasant.
The building work in the area didn't bother us but may be bothersome to certain rooms.
Overall, a very good quality 3* hotel that I would say is nearing 4* standard. Worth a try if you like adult focused hotel with modern rooms and good food.More
