Director and staff you should be proud of this exceptional hotel and staff !
My husband and I regularly use Trip advisor reviews to decide if we are booking the hotel or not. This hotel exceeded our expectations as it did for all the other couples we spoke to as well. We only wanted a cheap holiday this year and decided to try this hotel but we were worried about what would the quality be like. Well seriously if you are hesitant at all in booking do not be ! It was better than some of the 4 and 5 star hotels we have stayed in for a lot more money. The hotel is immaculately clean, the food was really very good indeed and most importantly to me the staff and customer service were outstanding. Every member of staff would say hello and smile at you from gardeners , pool men, cleaners and so on. There were particular staff who stood out for us. Bruno in the restaurant was really lovely and genuine, Manuel in the bar kept everyone laughing and made you feel special and Jose in the bar was a true gentleman. I liked that Management had a strong presence in the hotel to oversee all is well, the Director a very beautiful and elegantly dressed lady who shows a genuine interest in whats going on in the hotel and that all is running well. I agree with previous comments that our only suggestion to improve this hotel even further is the nighttime entertainment. There was mostly a three piece group with 2 men and one woman. Her voice was beautiful and the men played instrumentally well but there singing was not great . The woman seems to lack a presence on stage and didn't look as if she was enjoying being there. Personally ourselves and the other couples we met felt she just needed to do the singing on her own which would maybe increase her confidence . A two piece group with a female singer were exceptional ! Her stage presence and voice were really powerful and she really got the guests engaged and enjoying themselves . A greater variety would be better e,g dancing, acrobats, magician e.t.c, I think they would get more guests who would want to stay in at night . We went out most nights and there are plenty of great bars and restaurants in the area. Book now I am confident you will enjoy !More
Just returned from an amazing week in Gran Canaria, spent at Hotel Riu Don Miguel. The hotel's official rating is 3* and we struggled to believe it wasn't higher. We absolutely could not fault the place. The staff are friendly and cannot do enough for you. Keep an eye out for Bruno, the sweetest and funniest man and his happy mood is infectious. The whole hotel is impeccably clean, the food in the buffet restaurant is varied and delicious and Body's a la carte menu is sublime. Our room was spacious with good amenities, the pool and jacuzzi are great and we never struggled for a sun lounger. One day we even got one of the fancy beds which was a real bonus! Good entertainment both in the daytime and at night. Thank you to everyone at Hotel Riu Don Miguel for making our holiday perfect.More
A Lovely Stay at the Riu Don Miguel
stayed at the Riu Don Miguel from 29th June till the 6th July 17. the hotel room are a bit small but very well cleaned. I had tow problem one lighting went in the bathroom and my TV was not working properly. I reported the fault in the morning and by the time I got back after lunch it had already been fixed. There is only one main restaurant and the food was quite nice a lot of variety. what was good is that you got to sit at the same table for the duration of your holiday, which was a good thing not having to look for a table. Staff were very friendly and went out of there way to make us feel comfortable. The only problem we encountered was the rudeness of the Germans people staying there giving us dirty looks and not saying thank if you held the lift doors open for them or asked them a question. Convenience store was right across the road and the beach was a nice 15 min walk away. They have a big shopping centre 5 minutes walk away that sold everything you need along with restaurants to eat in and nights clubs and Karaoke bars. Overall al nice stay and of course Gran Canarias is a nice place to visit. We are going back next year June More
3rd Visit and will be returning!
My Husband and I returned here as we both love this Hotel. This is my guilty pleasure, no kids! as a teacher it is bliss to sit, relax and have no kids running around the pool or dining area. Even the rooms are tranquil and calming with their lilac decor. The Hotel is located very close to the massive Yumbo centre so you can eat at a large choice of Restaurants and bars if the food becomes boring (which it will). The bus stop is close by that will take you to Maspolamas or Las Palmas. There is a Taxi rank across the road which is very handy, and you never have to wait. The pool is wonderful with the loungers fitted in the pool. I call these the reading chairs and I spent my days in and out of these chairs with my kindle. This hotel does not allow balls and lilo's in the pool. Do not waste your money buying them as you will be told if you put them in the pool. The pool chairs go quickly but you cannot reserve until 9 am. If you have a favourite chair go and sit on it until the pool guy allows you to leave the towel. Me and my husband tag teamed this! The manageress has looked after this hotel for 13 years and trust me you know when she is in the building. The hotel is run like a tight ship. Unfortunately on this visit I noticed on the two weekends she was off the Hotel staff were very lax. Soap dispensers in the bathroom empty, rubbish bins by pool overflowing, bar staff not attentive around the pool. Even staff arguing in the Breakfast room! For me the biggest let down of this hotel is the very poor quality entertainment. It is awful and inconsistent. We found ourselves going out most nights as the entertainment was so poor. They put on music during the day in the form of a singer or sax player. On the stage where it is empty. No one can hear to by the pool. Perviously there was no music which is fine, people are relaxing. Despite this I have just returned from an amazing holiday chilled and relaxed. One member of staff who works so hard and knows all the guests is Manuel. He is a fantastic guy who really cares about the Hotel and keeping everyone happy. I will be returning in March with my Mum. Tip: Take a travel kettle and a couple of cups, (The hotel will charge you 10 euros to hire one for a week) There is a supermarket opposite the hotel that sells fresh milk. You have an empty fridge in your room so can make tea and coffee.More

Reasonable southen Gran Canarian hotel
Adult only hotel close to the main Gay area of the island. Close to the beaches but far enough inland to be near nice local restaurants and bars. Provides half board buffet style restaurant or you can book for al la carte restaurant if you book this. Nice fresh water pool with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas.More
