The Riu Don Miguel is right in the heart of things. It’s on Playa del Inglés’ main street, with bars and restaurants just footsteps away. The 3-kilometre-long main beach is a few minutes away on the hotel’s free shuttle bus, or a 20-minute walk. The hotel has a brand new à la carte restaurant called Body’s, which specialises in Mediterranean cuisine. There's also a great buffet restaurant that’s impressed TripAdvisor reviewers with its wide range of dishes. You’ll find it near the pool, which is pretty big and has plenty of loungers on a terrace to one side. Inside, the hotel has just been given a lick of paint, so you can expect everything to be nice and fresh. Bedrooms, for example, are decorated in white and pale purple, with contemporary prints on the walls and satellite TVs.

Some good points but would not stay again
All in all the hotel was satisfactory on most things HOWEVER my biggest annoyance was that on more than one occasion in the middle of the night 3-4 a.m people would run through the corridors and not just shout but scream the place down, deliberately trying to wake the whole place up. I think we stayed in room 218 and it seemed to me that it was not guests but general public (a guy and girl one night, just guys another) thinking it was a funny thing to do. It took me quite a while to go back to sleep afterwards as it was quite disturbing and I was frustrated that the hotel didn't have a card / key entry after midnight so that only guests could enter and also some CCTV cameras as a deterant as there were none at all. Some noise from drunken guests would be acceptable to me but this was something else and because of this I was also tired the day we had to travel back! Rooms are basic but fine for what I would expect at a 3 star rating, other than tea making facilities would have been nice (typical Brit!). Brekfast was good although sometimes difficult to find and know which was a free table. Good selection of dinner time food but quality could have been a little better. Labelling of foods suitable for vegetarians (such as which soups were suitable and pizza's for example) and a few more veggie options would have been better for me. Pool area and bar were superb. Entertainment was quite funny although I'm sure it wasn't meant to be! Often same act on at least 3 times a week, probably a shortage of good entertainment to go around on the island, but again for 3 star maybe expecting too much!! We booked with Thompson who were excellent all round. We may have considered staying again but that noise during the night has totally put me off and the hotel should seriously do something about it.More

3 star...yes it is!
A lot of reviews in here praise this hotel as something that is 3 star but offers 4 star conveniences, but we don't think so. Just been here a week ago (march 29 + plus 7 days) and I would say it is ok but nowhere near 4 star. POSITIVES - 1) location is nothing to be complained though it's not near to the beach but near Yumbo Centre, free shuttle is offered though at certain times, though we haven't used it. 2) Comfortable rooms but nowhere exciting. 3) nice pool and renovated bars. 4) food a plenty. 5) Friendly staffs.. and the NEGATIVES - 1) repeating entertainments during the week (same act 3-4 times in a week) 2) Food is not very tasty, and vegetables are always overcooked 3) noise at hallways at around 3-4 am (drunken people trying to piss the hell out everyone) can't believe they managed to enter the property without being told to, cctvs??? anyone? 4) internet 20€, safe 14€, tea and coffee facility 21€ bet its cheaper to get a 4 star hotel lol. As it is an adult only hotel it is quite peaceful at most times. We would stay here again? I'll probably save more bucks and try the RIU PALACE instead :)More

Good value and better than many
This is a great three star hotel that's better than many four star ones. Good points are the great pool and bar areas (recently refurbished and well maintained) nice friendly staff (always say hi and have a good banter), very clean rooms and public areas, fridge in room, and central location plus no kids allowed (it really does make a difference to the atmosphere, especially around the pool which is really peaceful). Negatives are... cost of safe is expensive, should be free really and would also like free internet (available free in reception once a day though). Food could be better, whilst ok the breakfast quality in particular could be improved and the hot food at dinner is a bit bland (salad bar is very good though). Rooms are comfortable (if a little basic) and clean with good size balconies-cleaning staff very good. Would recommend and would stay here again.More
OK but not as good as others locally
This is a 3 star hotel, and I would say that I had a 3 star stay. I've stayed in a few other hotels in this resort, mainly being 4 star ones, and I do think the difference shows. The food in good hotels in Playa del Ingles is often superb, but here it did fall below that standard, eg, cheaper/ less tender meats, and fish nearly always hake or pollock, with rather alot of bones. Room was ok, pool good, no all-inclusive facility as far as I could tell, you have to charge everything to your room. No ice machine. Staff friendly. If you get a good deal on one of the 4 star hotels take it. I rate this hotel as just OK.More

Very central and relaxing hotel
Booked one week stay early April with Jet2. Very centrally placed in a good area with great access. Very little to fault, check-in very smooth with smart, large foyer with lounge bar & internet access. Hotel feels modern and clean, rooms of average size but again modern bright with good decor. Big plus is large balcony, rooms facing inland have added advantage of evening sun - very welcome and relaxing after a day out. Pool area excellent and a good size. Hotel is for 16+ which means you can actual swim & relax in the pool. Plenty of sun lounges and whole area meticulously clean and well cared for. Slight problem with pool decking when we were there, but not noticeable. Dining area- excellent breakfast but range & quality of evening dinning was slightly disappointing but not unlike many hotels of this size. However plenty of good restaurants near by.Tip: This is quite a long hotel with some rooms quite a distance from reception, worth mentioning if you need to be central. Although rated as a 3* I would say this is definitely more a 4 star experience and would return and recommend.More
