Hotel Riu Don Miguel
Ranked #16 of 134 Hotels in Playa del Ingles
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Checked in 10th December for 7 nights. Check in easy enough. Pleased with our room on third floor. Long trek from reception though. We had a side view of pool. We had the sun from early afternoon until early evening. Sun was up from 7.30am and dark at 7.00pm. A few niggles. First our room, which was bright and airy, I must say. To use toilet in bathroom it was necessary to open bathroom door and then close for access to toilet. Also bath was very small for those who prefer bath to shower. Again we had side view from where entertainment is held, outside. If you like to go to bed early, or read a book or even watch television it would be impossible as music goes on until 11.00pm. Most of the refurbishment in rooms is cosmetic. Though on outside around the pool and outside seating at bar is lovely. Dining room was a bit of nightmare, it was so busy, usually in Riu hotels the tables are set with cups/saucers at breakfast, but you had to get your own. Some of the staff in dining room where really very cheery, special mention to Ana who went out her way to help us get a table for early sitting, when all the tables where occupied. Location of hotel was excellent. Free Wi-Fi around hotel reception though it was not mentioned and we paid for internet connection for our net-book before we noticed different people on their phone checking e-mails etc. The Christmas decorations were being put up while we visited. Everywhere looked very festive even in the new colours lilac and a deep pink colour.We visited Kasbash shopping centre where each night in the square we had live entertainment and dancing. Some dancers very professional. A nice way to pass the time watching all the dancers. Most other reviewers have covered other aspects. Would return if had a bigger room

Recently refurbished hotel.Excellent value for money, but will probably become 4 star by next summer so the prices will no doubt increase considerably :( .....The refurbishment is very classy, the staff were superb & cant do enough for you. My partner was celebrating her 50th birthday & they went over & above to make it a special occasion. The pool area is very clean & nicely set out, although the beach is the best place to go for a tan, accessed by the hotel courtesy coach. If you want to get out & about to the entertainment centre's the taxis are very cheap, although the Yumbo center is only 2 minutes walk away. A ll in all it was a very enjoyable winter break. We would highly recommend the Riu Don Miguel, especially at this quieter time of year.

If you want good service, value for money, good food, central location, gay-friendly, good rooms - and an overall excellent experience which is not luxury (and at £60 for half board how can it be?!) then the Don Miguel is the ticket! My first experience - and yes some aspects are amusing : the gays automatically get the 8.00 pm sitting, you will end up with a silent stranger for a week (and you can't change!) but the staff are amazing! Book it and relax...

This was our 4th visit to the Don Miguel. The refurbishment has focused mainly on the outside of the hotel with a great new pool, new loungers, more space in the sun and a refurbished outside bar. These all help it make it feel much more modern and special. Inside the reception is remodeled and rooms get new beds, curtains and a lick of paint. There is a fridge, but still no kettle, so bring your own for that nice cuppa :-) Bathrooms pretty much unchanged, but didn't really need it.

What's really great is that the staff have remained, so its the same efficiently run, friendly and clean hotel. Main restaurant is unchanged - don't fix what ain't broken .... and the food is still great - a few more inches round the waist is test-amount !

Overall the quality, price and location ratio is spot on and I would thoroughly recommend to those wanting a great hotel close to the nightlife.

Room Tip: Only the ones facing the busy Avenue Tirajana are noisy so try and avoid these.

We stayed here before the refurbishment and thought it was a good hotel,but since the refurb it has got even better. The rooms have been tastefully redecorated but the main difference was the pool area. There are plenty of sunbeds to go round and some comfy double beds that were well used by a lot of guests. There is a new bar area inside & out with a new stage for the entertainment in the same colours. Food was as always plentiful and there was always something for everyone. The restaurant staff were always friendly and very helpful especially Ana she is such a lovely friendly person & nothing was ever too much trouble. If there is one criticism it is that there are no toilets situated in the reception area, you have to go down stairs or to your room or down to the pool toilets but as we were only on 2nd floor this was not too much of a problem. We will definitely be going back again.

Good location. Clean. Friendly. Will stay again and recommend to friends. spending 12 Euros once or twice a week to have a la carte menu in restaurant rather than buffet nice treat. But buffet perfectly good.
