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 ››
Me and my wife stayed at this hotel , and could not fault the staff or how clean the hotel was, but please be aware that this hotel is in the gay area of playa de ingles, and that some of the guests staying there acted in a way that should not be permitted in a hotel or around the swimming pool, we was informed by are holiday rep ( Thomson rep ) that gay couples have been caught doing sexual acts in the pool before, and have been warned but this seems not to have stopped, and Thomson do not tell you that this hotel is in a gay resort,
As I said hotel staff are great , but you cant stop the people going to the hotel, who think they can do what they like and not offend other hotel guests staying there .More

We stayed at this hotel from 1st Sept to 15th Sept. Check in was efficient and staff where very helpful. The Bedroom was very pleasant overlooking the pool on the 3rd floor.
Food was plentiful presented at a very high standard plus so much to choose from.
Evening Entertainment (Sherry) was very good and managed to sing songs of ALL taste, the DJ was not to our taste
We were welcomed every morning at the entrance to the dining hall by the higher Management team and the Head of the Caterers Joan plus his team of waiters and waitresses, which was a nice touch.
The room was cleaned every day to a very high standard and our holiday rep Joe was very informative.
Pleased could any German reading this review explain to me why you have to push your way to the food counter and treat it as the last piece of food on earth also why you have to put towels on the poolside sunbed and don't use them ALL day which was great for me because on two occasions the sunbeds were next to me and I had plenty of space.More

Excellent Hotel - worth 4 stars
Stayed 9/9 - 16/9 - arrived 9.30pm check in was efficient room allocated was at rear of hotel on second floor overlooking kitchen extract fans, returned to reception where the more than helpful reception informed me to come back in the morning to see about a change, did so and was moved to a room on the 4th floor overlooking outside bar and pool a much better outlook. As commented on in previous reviews the staff in this hotel are second to none and a credit to the Riu group.Plenty of sunbeds and no reserving allowed before 9.00am.Found the food to be of a very high standard for both breakfast and dinner with all hot food being show cooked and constantly refreshed, there was, however, the usual queue for the toast machine at breakfast but this was only a minor niggle.Would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat though the resort of Playa del Ingles is very much a gay resort and though this didn't affect me and my good lady's enjoyment the antics of a few might be off putting for some.More
We stayed 8th-15th Sept. The staff were very helpful and friendly and spotlessly clean, if the hotel was in a different location it would be a 4*. Good choice of food at mealtimes and very nice. The poolside had sunbeds and there is a rule of not saving these before 9am, some people did ignore this. We did not rate the evening entertainment much as there was a resident band for 5 nights with a DJ for the other 2 evenings. The DJ music was more suited to the younger guests. We will be going back there as there is plently of things to do in the resort area.More

A great holiday - fantasic hotel
This was our first time here but we were pleasantly surprised. Check-in was efficient and the staff were very pleasant, although their English isn’t great. I think this hotel was geared more towards the German traveller, very few English people here. Pool was great but there is still the morning rush for sunbeds and the no towel policy isn’t kept so there were lots of towels around but no people. Food is great quality but we did get a little bored of the choices by the end of the second week. Hotel entertainment was good. There is a sop right opposite the hotel which is convenient. Rooms were cleaned daily and to a high standard, air con is the best I have ever experienced in GC. I would defiantly recommend this hotel and would be happy to stay here again. If you have any questions please ask!More
