Hotel Riu Don Miguel
Ranked #15 of 135 Hotels in Playa del Ingles
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 November 2013

My wife and I where here in February 2013 and had a great time so we decided to take our two (adult) girls with us for a week. They were never going to turn down a free holiday;-). We booked 23/10/13 to 30/10/13 half board. On arrival with hotel voucher in hand I was told they could not find my booking and to take a seat. The staff member, who wore a black uniform, which gave me the impression he was in charge as the others wear cream colours was efficient but very distant and cold. This I have to say is in complete contrast to the other staff members and perhaps the management should tell him to lighten up? People are on holiday and not prisoner being shown to a cell? 15 minutes later we got shown to two rooms at the far end of the hotel away from everything. This in spite of the fact I asked for rooms that overlook the pool if possible. Clearly we were being put into the "emergency rooms". One was quite spacious but the other was a strange shape (266+268). The route march we had to make to get to the restaurant and pool, up and down stairs, had the makings of ruining or at least taking some of the good feeling away from being on holiday! The next day I returned to reception, spoke with a very helpful clerk, explained the problem and got allocated rooms 142+143 which would be available the next day. I would NOT have got moved had I not asked, so if not happy with something ask! Moved into the rooms and THIS type of room and location was why I came back to this particular hotel. The feel good factor had returned. From then on in the holiday was great. Food was excellent and has something for everyone. Rooms were cleaned daily and were spotless. Hotel prices were reasonable, not cheap but reasonable. Pool areas spotless and if you are booking ask for pool view as these rooms appear to be the more spacious and nearer to reception and restaurant. The main Yumbo Centre is just across the road so plenty shops and bars to visit if that is your thing. If you have booked this hotel then you will have a great time and if you are considering it then I have no reservations recommending it to you! Have a good holiday!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool area are the ones to ask for

Hotel positioned adjacent to roundabout with roads leading to Meloneras/ Maspolomas/Puerto Mogen and the Playa del Ingles beach. The beach is 15 min walk, steadily downhill or a courtesy bus ride from the roundabout. The hotel is close to the Yumbo Centre with its many shops and bars. The hotel is adult only, and gay friendly (accounting for a good third of the hotel residency).
The reception staff and hotel porter were both informative and efficient during booking in and transferring cases to our rooms. (Our rooms,160/161, seemed a long walk from reception).
Rooms were fine: air con and ceiling fan, beds comfortable, 2 chairs and table, T.V. and enough sockets dotted around. Ample wardrobe/hanging space, safe.
Bathroom: toilet, hand basin, bath with shower over. Hairdryer.
Balcony: clothes dryer, table and 2 chairs overlooking street that takes you down to the beach.
Off the main reception was a wi-fi computer seating area, a clothes shop, stairs down to the restaurant, and access to the bar/stage area with steps down to the swimming pool. The pool had sunbeds/beds, part submerged loungers, and a jacuzzi. Drinks are served around the pool. From the pool area, steps lead down to a gym.The swimming pool and surrounding area were very clean and well maintained.
The buffet style restaurant dress code for men is long trousers for the evening meal. We were offered to sit inside or outside for our evening meal, we chose outside and after confirmation from us that we were happy with our table, this was our allocated table for dinner each night. Smoking permissible outside. Food choice is good and if you go hungry, you've only got yourself to blame.
At breakfast you can chose where to sit and again the choice of food is good.
Drinks seem to be the norm for hotel rates and the evening entertainment par for the course.
After chatting with my wife and the other couple that we went with, to sum the Riu Don Miguel up, its a really good 3 star aspiring to be a 4 star.

We stayed here for 10 days and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel has a great pool surrounded by loungers.

The room was both spotless and spacious and the bed super comfy.

We had dinner included and whilst the quality was good the buffet style dining was a little repetitive after 10 days.

The evening entertainment was an added and unexpected bonus. We couldn't fault the hotel or it's central location and would certainly recommend and stay again.
