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 ››

3 star hotel with 5 star service!
We have spent a week at the adults only RIU Don Miguel. The hotel is spotless - I never saw any piece of litter or anything out of place during our time there. The pool area was regularly checked to ensure it was tidy. All rooms are basic but are of a decent size. They are simply furnished with a room safe (for a small charge) and have a fridge but have a lilac theme, which is part of a pink/purple colour scheme throughout the hotel. My tip would be to ask for a room overlooking the pool. Our only gripe was that housekeeping came in to our room about 8.30am when we were still in bed. The buffet meals were varied but the food was plentiful and was being replenished regularly. The dÃ©cor in the dining room is very reminiscent of package holiday hotels in the 80's and is the only part of the hotel that could do with a makeover. The a la carte restaurant Body's is worth a visit. During our stay we went twice and the food was exquisite - there was no extra cost other than for drinks. The service in the restaurant was exceptional - plates were cleared quickly and the staff were friendly to all guests. Be aware that gents are expected to wear long trousers for the evening meal - this was pointed out to us by staff on our first night and when my husband returned after changing he was thanked for his co-operation. The hotel is close to supermarkets, bars and the Yumbo Centre. The beach is a short distance away but the hotel does provide a shuttle bus service that runs from a nearby street about 4 times in the morning and 4 return journeys in the afternoon. It is a quality coach or large minibus but do get there early as the service is popular. The pool is a good size and there is a gym for fitness buffs which has modern equipment. I'd recommend the hotel for a break on the island. Bear in mind that it is a 3 star so do not expect kettles in your room, bath robes etc, but the hotel provides good value for money coupled with good service and a clean base to stay in during your stay.More
Stylish hotel, nice staff, great location
We stayed at Riu Don Miguel from 25 March to 1 April 2014. This was our second stay and we have now made reservations for the third year in a row. The staff welcomed us and surprisingly seemed to recognize us :=). The room decor is stylish and modern, which is a break from some of those places that still have 70s furniture. The rooms are clean, the showers worked well, the beds were comfortable and we just love the balcony, with a pool view. In reception, you always get a smile and helpful advice. Elevators always worked, which was good as we were travelling with my 85-year-old father in law. The pool area is lovely, but I agree with another reviewer that "reserving" a sunbed should be limited. THE ONLY DOWNSIDE is the WI/FI connection, but, then again: we were on holiday!More

Great stay, nice pool area
Overall this is a great holiday hotel, but make sure you get a room with a pool view! The building is huge, with an odd layout, and we got a dark, road-view room miles from the pool/reception. That was a bit of a dampner. Otherwise it's very nicely done. The pool itself is lovely with Ibiza-style sun beds and whirlpool. For a vacation property, its got an amazing gym, the rooms are pretty clean, staff are nice. Lots of choice with dinner buffets although not much variation. (Occasionally they have themed nights - the Spanish night was brilliant, but the Italian night just seemed the same as normal!). Downsides: You'll need to bring your own pool towels. Wifi is charged (and didn't reach our room anyway). It's adults only; when we stayed it was about 50% gay male couples (cos it's three minutes from the Yumbo Centre). Overall we had a great trip, I think the neighbouring Neptuno is a bit better, but it's still a nice hotel.More
Stayed at the hotel Riu Don Miguel end of February.the hotel is definitely a 3 star and not a 4 star as advertised in thomsons.the food and restaurant staff and as good as you will get from any 3star hotel.the position of the hotel is ok if you don't want any outlook.it is right next to the yambo centre which is a large concrete plaza full of nasty Turkish salesman.back to the hotel the bar staff on a whole were ok but at times they were very hard to find.The wi/fi is useless I purchased the premium for 20 euros which was no better when I went back to compline the staff said I had used it on another device.the fridge in the room is absolutely useless.The hotel does not hire beach towels.but it does Hire kettles for 15euros I went and bought one for 10.also i fourt 28 Euros for a safe deposit box for 10 nights was excessive.More

Clean, adequate, adults only hotel.
A Hotel that did exactly as advertised. No delusions of grandeur or promises not fulfilled. Pleasant, knowledgeable & helpful staff who kept the place spotlessly clean. Spent an enjoyable week there with my wife and chose it primarily for the adults only criteria. Handily placed for bars and restaurants nearby (lots of them) and a free bus service to the beach (5 minute ride) if you fancy it. Rooms were adequate but would advise a pair of ear plugs as the corridors give off an echo sound and so the din of drunken Scandinavians arguing outside your door at 3am can sound like a rock concert going on!! Food in the restaurant was well cooked, presented and tasted great. Lots of good choices and so you'd have to be extra picky not to get a healthy & hearty feed at dinner. Breakfast can be a bit of a rugby scrum if you go at a particularly busy time, but if you stay calm and ignore the bad manners of Loose Head Props and Front Row maulers you'll get by ok. The A La Carte Restaurant is a great experience and is free if you're on a half-board basis, so I would recommend it during your stay. We went twice and would have gone a third time but the menu didn't change whilst we were there so twice was enough. On the down side (but not enough overall to spoil an enjoyable, relaxing week of winter sun) there is no free Wi-Fi outside of the lobby/reception area (you have to pay around 20 Euros for the week) and even in this area you get 90 minutes a day but the speed is like being back on dial-up in the 1990's. Pool area is a touch overcrowded as the beds are too numerous and close together. Also be warned there are no Pool Towels available and so you need to provide your own.More
