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.

As good as you're going to get in a 3* hotel

We've been using this hotel for many years and recon it must be one of the best 3* hotels around. This hotel is well placed for the Yumbo Centre's excellent night life and there is a complimentary bus to take hotel guests to the beach - taxis to other parts of the town are very inexpensive and often cheaper than the buses. The staff are excellent at all levels, the restaurant staff particularly so. Anna and Joan (restaurant managers) are worthy of special mention as they set the tone of a very pleasant restaurant. Food choice is good but, since we've been coming here for many years, have noticed a bit of penny pinching this year. Body's Restaurant ( a la carte) is excellent - do go. There are two issues which we consider unsatisfactory: the bar tarif for this 3* hotel is that which is also applied to other RIU 4* and 5* hotels and is too expensive. A E10 bottle of wine at a local mini-market is offered at E40 at the Don Miguel and this is typical of the drinks mark-up, no wonder so few people use the outside bar during the evening as it's generally much cheaper to pop over to the Yumbo for a drink. Also, the latest addition to the evening entertainment is dire, hour after relentless hour of 'house music' I think they call it, and is driving many people we spoke to away from the hotel in the evening. This 'music' is loud, repetitive, thumping, banging and totally out of place for this hotel - absolutely dreadful. Some chat playing a few records doing a bit of jiggling about is not entertainment and this concept needs abandoning. Pity about this as it spoils an excellent 3* hotel which in other respects reaches a higher standard than many 4* hotels we've stayed in.More

Very central to a wide area.

Just got back from two weeks in this hotel. Staff were excellent, we were given a family suite, which exceeded our expectations, every thing about the last two week was easy and comfortable, to the point that the holiday it's self felt as if we had been there much longer, really recharged our batteries, put on weight, as the food was brilliant. Location is great for Playa de Ingles and the area. Only low point was that the entertainment in the evenings could be considerably more varied, but as it's only a small step from the Yumbo Shopping Centre there was plenty of entertainment around.More

Riu Don Miguel; Modern with no customer service.

Myself and my partner are a couple aged 23-24 and were looking for a relaxing couples break in Gran Canaria to celebrate our anniversary . When we arrived we were given a room at the very end of the hotel , away from any form of scenery , even though we emailed 2 months previously to request a pool view as this was a special occasion. After entering our room which onlooked a busy main road and roundabout we were shocked to see dirty marks and large rusted holes in the bath and the door handle hanging loose from the door. These faults were reported to reception and a room change was requested, however 2 days later and after three returns to the reception, we still had no room change and faults still weren't fixed, even though reception staff had ensured us we would be given a new room the next again day; seven days later we were still in the same room, door handle fixed , but still with holes in the bath. Service in the restaurant and reception were poor with staff being extremely rude towards us. On two occasions staff made us feel humiliated whilst we ate dinner, with one particular waiter even passing rude comments to other guests about us in Spanish as we ate our evening meal, as a result , we no longer returned to the restaurant and ate out in local restaurants where staff made us feel welcome and relaxed. As well as waiter staff being rude, reception staff at the Riu Don Miguel were also extremely unprofessional, failing to provide us with departure information, which we had to request up to 3 times before it was discovered by staff in the wrong rooms mail box ! On one occasion, my partner and I also faced questioning over a key they had provided us with, however instead of admitting their mistake in giving us this key we were left to feel like naughty school children; whatever happened to customer service ? On the plus side, the hotel is spotlessly clean and has very friendly cleaners, all of whom wish you a pleasant day and go out their way to make your stay extra special; including chocolates , flowers and cushions on the bed. As a young couple who have traveled to many hotels and resorts we would not recommend Riu Don Miguel. More


Our fourth visit

This is a lovely friendly hotel. We stayed there in October and were not disappointed!the hotel is always very clean.its central location is a boon! cannot wait to stay there again! We stay half board which is ideal for us .there is plenty of choice at breakfast .we then go off for the day then return for an evening meal again a good varied selection.then we hit the yumbo centre to watch the world go by with a cocktail or two!More

Lovely Hotel and great location

Me and my husband have just returned from Riu Don Miguel in playa del ingles and can not fault the hotel, we had room 369 which was right at the end so very quite, with it being half board bases if you want a drink you can either pay or have it billed to your room of which you pay on checking out there was a fridge in our room of which you can request mini bar, we didn't and went to supermarket across the road which was cheap lovely hotelMore
