Delightful hotel right in the centre of everything!
I stayed here in the middle of May, and have nothing negative to say about this hotel! Location: the hotel is located next to the famous yumbo shopping centre, it's a short taxi ride to the beach but you sacrifice that for the convenience of location, close to all local shops and markets. Staff: exemplary, so kind courteous and willing to help at any point. Fluent in quite a few languages to cater for the diverse range of customers they get. A special thanks to the cleaners, who are so thorough and always said good morning to us. One day in particular (pride day) we came home to find colourful lanyards hanging on the wall lamps and a rose in the bathroom. When by the pool you could see them on the balcony wiping down the glass, using the mops, nothing was done by halves. Food: we were half board and he buffet arrangement was really nice for both breakfast and supper. Hot and cold options and enough to cater for all dietary needs. The only odd thing I found was for breakfast there was options to have carrots, potatoes and sweet corn! Some people may like this but I wasn't willing to give it a go. Fresh cheeses and breads and a wide range of pressed juices all on tap - wonderful. Parking - we didn't drive but there's no parking for the hotel if that matters to you. There's a small bay on the roundabout just outside but that was full of taxis most of the time Noise - it's in the centre of the action so there will be noise from the yumbo centre but that was to be expected. Once the balcony doors were shut most noise was muffled out. Pool - a large pool with sun beds surrounding, and a hot tub in the corner which was more private and had a button so you could control when the bubbles were on. Both areas were always immaculately clean Room: we had a twin room booked and we found it spacious with a large balcony overlooking the yumbo. There was an empty fridge which we used to store water from the store opposite. Bathroom was large and spacious with a lovely shower with a huge water pressure (fab!!) air con was very nice to have and we also had an additional ceiling fan to use overnight to keep us cool. Cost - reasonable prices for most things, cocktails were a bit more costly to have on site than in the yumbo but that's to be expected in a hotel Entertainment - we had a pride party hosted by the hotel which was a variety show put on by the hotel staff and reminded me of my end of year school reviews. Great fun, lovely atmosphere and so many laughs to be had. Wifi: wifi cost 20 Euro for the week to have in your room but was free at reception - this was the only thing I'd have liked to be included in the cost. To summarise, I'd highly recommend this hotel and I'd love to come back next year but I advise you book early as it gets full quickly!!! More

Stayed here with my partner and my two male friends. I was pleased that my girlfriend and I were given a double bed and not two twins put together. In both cases of the room, they were clean and tidy. The maids worked their socks off getting rid of glitter and pride related items that littered the room on a daily basis. When we asked for clean sheets and towels we got them. Air con and fan all working, shower and bath delightful. The pool area and bar were smart but casual, I could really relax and not feel like a sardine. All the staff were polite, open minded and attentive in the right amounts. We stayed half board and that was more than enough, they had a good variety of food and drinks. My girlfriend is fussy and even she was pleased. Despite the slight noise from, the hotel location was within perfect walking distance to the yumbo and surrounding areas. I couldn't be more pleased with our stay. Defiantly coming again! Thank you :)More
I stayed here last week, it was pride week here, the hotel is located within walking distance of all the night life yet its still nice and calm at night and very relaxing by day. The staff on reception are lovely and friendly and helpful, my room was 308 which over looks the pool, has a large balcony with table and chairs, it has air conditioning in the room which is great, the shower was amazing, very powerful and loads of hot water and shower gel provided. The beds are really really comfortable. The cleaners come in everyday and do the most amazing job and change the sheets and towels every single day. The hotel itself is immaculate, the pool and outside bar are really nice, theres hundreds of sun beds and parasols. Theres a dj on stage all day playing very relaxing soul tunes. The bar was giving out free drinks one day and there was a drag queen show at lunch time, it was very classy. The food was buffet style and was absolutely outstanding, breakfast covered everyone's needs, with loads of types of bread, eggs cooked every way possible, ham, cheese, bacon, potato, fruit, yogurt, smoothies, literally everything!. Evening meal was also fantastic, everything you could wish for, bread, cheeses, salads, hams, lasagne, risotto, steaks, chicken, stir fry, rices, I could go on forever, oh and desserts!! I think the staff here deserve awards, their customer service is the best I have ever experienced. Every single member of staff, from waiting staff to bar staff to reception staff. They are so polite, nothing is too much trouble, the manageress is friendly and attends every meal time and welcomes you to dining. If I could give this hotel 10 stars I would. Thanks riu don miguel and your exceptional staff. More
Another great visit.
Considering myself pretty well travelled and having stayed in a number of apartments and hotels, the Riu brand has become one that I have come to trust. Whilst they may not be the cheapest hotel they are always consistent and offer good value for money. Being an annual visitor to Gran Canaria this is the third time that I have stayed at the Riu Don Miguel and the fifth time that I have stayed in a Riu hotel on the island. Knowing the layout of the hotel, I emailed a couple of weeks before making a request to stay in a certain part of the hotel. Upon checking in, I was greeted by a friendly member of staff that I recognised from my previous trips. He briefly took our passports and stated that I had been allocated a room in the quieter part of the hotel. I mentioned that I emailed in advance asking if I could have a room on a higher floor and ideally rooms 25,26,27 or 28. I was advised that I had been allocated room 414 with the words "trust me, this is a nice room" I was shown to the room and must confess that it was better than the ones I had requested. I had a pool view and a bigger balcony. The room was up to its usual standard and was extremely clean. Throughout my stay the cleaners did a really great job. There is plenty of space for clothes and the room is well laid out. There are a couple of improvements that could be made though and these would be a kettle in the room along with an iron and ironing board. Apart from this I can't fault it. The beds are extremely comfortable and provide a great nights sleep. The amenities at the hotel are pretty good as well. There was always plenty of sun beds around the pool whatever time of day and wasn't a problem to find two together either. The pool area is kept clean and tidy and really is a nice place to relax. There is also a gym on site, however I didn't use this. Food, with dinner you get allocated a meal time with the choices of either 18:30 or 20:30. On the first night you will be allocated a table which is yours for the duration of your stay. At breakfast you can sit where you like. The restaurant is a buffet style, where you help yourself. There is always three different types of meat and a roast meat of the day, there are different fish options along with soups, salads and pizza. There really is something for everyone. I chose the 20:30 slot and noticed quite quickly that everyone descends on the restaurant at that time. This year I noticed that the staff could not cook the chicken and steak fast enough as soon as they put them out they were gone. This isn't helped by people stock piling, why anybody needs 5 bits of chicken and 3 steaks at the same time is beyond me! However this did lead to a problem on one of the nights, I waited for the chef to replenish the chicken, where I took two thin strips. Getting back to my table and cutting into the meat, I noticed that the chicken was pink and not properly cooked through. I complained to the waitress who took my plate away, a few minutes later, I noticed that she was showing it to one of the hotel managers. I was given an apology and was advised that the head chef had been spoken to. Every other meal was really good and I can't fault it. I would also recommend booking Bodies restaurant, full silver service and great food. Taking the above into account and the way it was dealt with, I would have no hesitation in booking to stay at this hotel again.More
