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 ››
The outdoor pool comes with wraparound wooden decking, with sunbeds and parasols along its edge. Plus there's an added bonus - a strip of sleek in-water loungers. There are changing rooms too. For your comfort the pool is heated in winter.
These twin rooms are designed with a bright and spacious feel. There’s a balcony or terrace for that extra bit of space and 1 extra bed in the bedroom. You’ll also have air-conditioning and a ceiling fan to help keep you cool too.

Arrived to find the room was very clean and smelt fresh. Room was a decent size and balcony spacious. Little clothes line attached to the wall which is always handy! Maid came every day and you could request sheets changed at any time by leaving a card on the bed.
Food was ok. You have to sit at the same table each night and are allocated a sitting time of either 1830 or 2030hrs. This can be changed providing d there are spaces for your required sitting. Only gripe we had was that evening meal does not include anything to drink which is a bit mean for Half Board. It cost us 4 Euros per night for 2 bottles of still water. Hotel restaurant food was nice but they only served the food between 1300 and 1500hrs. Youarenotallowed air beds or balls in the pool and supposedly not allowed to reserve us beds before 9am but this, like most hotels still happened! Our second week, the hotel was worse for this as lots more older Germans staying! Entertainment was very bad! I think the hotel really needs to have a look at this as they would have more people drinking them if they changed the trio 'Sherry'for a group who looks and sounds like they are enjoying themselves! We would stay again as very close to the Yumbo centre and all other amenities.More

Too busy by far
Have stayed here before and I can't say that I would rush back.
Just too many people. In the lifts, in the lobby and particularly in the dining room. At times it resembled and airport security check in area. So many people.
The rooms are fine. The staff are superb but the ratio of customers to space needs addressing.
Plus, road works all around were a nightmare. Not the fault of the hotel that we sat by the pool for two weeks will bore holing and deep drilling going on!More

Riu Don Miguel
Just back from another 2 week stay. We love this hotel everything about it is great,but there is just one complaint and that is the entertainment or should I say a lack of it. No professional shows just the dreadful trio Sherry night after night and after nearly 2 or 3 years she has got no better, most nights she played to an empty bar also this year we had a saxophonist in the afternoon twice whilst we were there supposedly playing music from the film's not quite sure what the film's were though.The only thing that stops this hotel from being a 4star is the appalling Sherry trio. We went to the Yumbo each night as there was more life there than the hotel bar which was empty most evenings,more bar staff than customers. As I said at the beginning the staff are excellent,good food, cleanliness it is just the serious lack of good entertainment. When there used to be professional shows you couldn't get a seat.More

Just returned from a fantastic week ar Riu Don Miguel. A little bit apprehensive before we went as we usually go to the Gran Canaria Princess in November. We travelled with friends and got the rooms we asked for (441 & 442) overlooking the pool with afternoon sunshine. Staff are really friendly and helpful, meals are varied and always plenty to choose from, we chose the early 6.30 sitting for evening meals rather than the 8.30 sitting and had the same table for the week.
Entertainment was provided afternoon and night but we chose to sample the night life at Benny Hills, the Old Triangle and Dunes n Tunes all with great nightly singers and of course the Yumbo Centre is on the doorstep.
We will probably return to this recently refurbished hotel because of its location and the great staff. Remember to take your towels and a kettle as the hotel don't provide poolside towels unlike many other hotels in the area.More
