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 ››

Lovely hotel, few niggles but would stay again
Arrived on a late Saturday afternoon via a Thomson UK holiday. On arrival we were greeted by a wonderful receptionist called Nadina whom asked us to attend a late dinner as our room was being prepared. We were greeted in the dining hall by a cheery waiter and dinner was lovely... Now a more detailed review... Room: lovely, lilac and very spacious (213) not a great view as it looked over the main road. Beds were very comfy. Bathroom decent enough. Fridge good. Maid service: exceptional! No other words. Daily and new towels daily. Dining service: my huge gripe- basically if you weren't German they were not interested! Niceties were performed and that was it yet waiters flaunted German tables and spoke more German than even Spanish it appeared! I'm no xenophobe but as Scottish we felt very excluded. The dining hall manageress (as noticed by us and another British couple) only overtly made a fuss of overly smart Europeans yet we all spent the same money...... Food: Excellent, huge variety and the quality superb- well done to chefs! The cooked meat joints were spectacular! Location: Amazing- 2 mins/5 mins (slow walk) to Yumbo centre! Free bus to beach also. Hotel pool area/ Entertainment area: stunning, clean and very upmarket feeling! Entertainment: the band.... Well distinctly average hence we didn't stay long each night. Overall- lovely hotel. Definitely more a four star than their stated 3. Would return here but they have to treat ALL guests the same! More

Christmas and New Year at Don Miguel
Having enjoyed Christmas at Don Miguel in 2013 we decided to book three weeks over Christmas and New Year 2014, On arrival we were initially disappointed with our allocated room and were not happy with the level of customer service that we received at reception. We spoke to Pepa the Hotel manager and we were given a complimentary bottle of wine at Dinner and we were able to move to a much better room after a couple of days. Our second room was on a higher floor and although not pool facing (which we had requested) it was south facing and enjoyed the sun all day. In fact we actually found the balcony too hot in the afternoons! obviously didn't complain about that though Ha Ha It was interesting to see so many faces that we remembered from the year previous. Don Miguel obviously enjoys a very high level of repeat business. We personally think that it is partly due to the excellent team here. Everyone from The formidable Hotel manager Pepa to the chambermaids were friendly. They all do an excellent job. As usual Ana Lopez the restaurant manager was excellent and the waiters were all really friendly, in particular we would like to thank Manolo, Kevin and Yonet for making Mealtimes such an enjoyable occasion We like Don Miguel very much and we will definitely stay here again in the futureMore

Clean, comfortable and friendly
This hotel is run like a five star, and I've stayed in enough of them. Every aspect is good. The staff, who all look like they are doing the best job on earth, can't do enough for you. The maÃ®tre d in the restaurant (Ana) was amazing ensuring every guest was happy. Well worth staying here. On the caution side of things: It is adults only and the "entertainment" was not to my taste more aimed at the older guests. More

Should be a 4 star
My wife and I stayed half board at this hotel for a week, the whole hotel is spotlessly clean, the rooms are spacious and the beds very comfortable, the rooms were cleaned every day. The food in the resteraunt was excellent and varied one of the best we have stayed in. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The pool area was also very clean with plenty of beds, although towels were laid down very early. The only downside was that as the weather wasn't too warm the hotel corridors were rather cold as were open to the elements. Some rooms are a long walk to the lifts. If we were to go to GranCanaria again we would definitely stay here.More

A nice stay but a few negatives
I stayed at this hotel over the new year period. I thought the check in procedure took quite a while. Infant I actually thought there was a problem. Didn't find the gentleman very warm particular as all the reviews had said how friendly the reception staff were. Anyway there wasn't a problem but maybe he was just being super efficient. Room was nice but spoilt by the bathroom. The size of the bath was so small. If you had been over 6ft it would have been ridiculous. I am 5'6' and it was cramped for me. You would have to use the shower but it was hardly a power shower and just an ordinary shower over the bath. Also the bath was very low so if you were elderly or generally had difficulties getting in an out of baths would have been a problem, The bathroom door opened inwards and you couldn't get round it so you had to close the door in order to go from bath to toilet which I found annulling and it made the bathroom cramped and small. There was no tea or coffee making facilities. Fortunately I knew this and took my travel kettle. I would have thought a 3star hotel would have had these basic needs. The safe you had to pay for which I thought was naughty and internet or wifi was not free. There were 4 computers downstairs in the lobby and they charged a euro for 30mins or 2euro for hour. Should have been free and the keyboards needed changing as the letters were fading. You were given a time slot to eat evening meal. I was given 1800hrs which I feel is far to early to eat an evening meal. The restaurant I found chaos on my first visit. The waiting staff were far to busy fussing over their regulars and not helping new guests. breakfast was also just as confusing on the first few visits until you got used to the way it worked and not many of the staff really helped or spoke very good english. On one occasion I went into the restaurant for evening meal holding a small bottle of water and had this confiscated straight the way from a hard looking waitress with glasses and hair all pulled back in a pony tail. Sour face. I thought this was bad practise as the wine was horrible and pay for water so I wasn't too happy about that. The food WAS good though I have to admit. A very good selection both for breakfast and evening meal so there wasn't any complaints there at all. Its just small things but when all added up they become a rather bigger issue. I also felt the room cleaning was rather skimmed over rather than cleaned properly and often the maids would come early but that suited me as it gets the whole process over with. I think this is a 3star hotel wanting to be 4star but they have quite some way to go before that would happen I feel. It quite a walk from the beach although there is a free bus that goes there but quite a long gap between buses in the afternoon if you wanted to get back. I wouldn't stay at this hotel again as I would rather be nearer the beach and I think Playa Del Inglis is a place to be near rather than IN. Also my room was a long walk to get too. 2nd floor but terribly long outdoor corridors up and down stairs or ramps and as it was January with a very cold wind it was non too pleasant especially 8am in the morning when breakfast started. With all the comments are have given this is what makes the hotel average rather than very goodMore
