“Cant wait to go back :-)”
Reviewed 3 October 2010

I have just come back from this hotel..i could not recommended this hotel enough. My partner, my little boy (1 yr old) and myself all throughly enjoyed ourselves. My partner and myself are quite fussy eater especially as i am a vegatarian and we both found the food to be of excellent standard, large variety of food and very tasty.
The staff in in this hotel are all very friendly and work extremely hard. The hotel is very clean the cleaners dont stop from morning till night. The hotel is also part of the San miguel Beach Club and Hotel Gualion..you can use all of the facilities in each one. There is a Mexican Bar in the Gualion which we used one lunch time that was nice. The San Miguel Hotel has a Tapa Bar that we unfortunately never used but believe it was good and a Chinese which i highly recommend, we all enjoyed it.
The entertainment in the hotel is good. The is a variety of entertainment on each night including hypnosis which i partipated in :-) All the entertainment staff icluding inhouse and thomson work very hard to give you a very enjoyable stay.
The room was slightly on the small side but was nothing that caused a problem. There is standard television in the room or you can pay extra for more channel (we did to get Cbeebies for my little boy).
There was a downside that there was no fridge in the room to store my sons bottles but this can be hired out.
The day we travelled back fell on the day of the spanish strikes, Thomson and their staff pulled out all the stops to ensure this affected its customers as minimal as possible. I was very suprised that on departure when we approached reception to hand back our keys we were given a packed lunch provided by the hotel due to the possibility of long delays at the hotel. This i feel really sums up the hotel, the manager really did not have to do this, as we were shortly no longer customers that he needed to keep happy.
I really do recommended this hotel to all, young and old.
Cant wait to go back next year, then i will be taken the rest of the extended family. Nans be told to save ;-)

Really loved the holiday, the hotel location is perfect as close to pools and the beach which is perfect for a all inclusive resort. The hotel staff were so polite and helpful, the rooms were huge and cleaned every day, the food was lovely and great choice, hot bread maybe too nice! the beach is one of the best ive ever seen, so clear and warm. there is not a huge amount outside the resort but there is so much in the resort you tend to not leave much. There is all sorts of free sports, canoes, bikes, tennis, ping pong, parks, lovely scenic walks, volley ball and a gym. the lifts are not that bad, you did have to wait sometimes but the stairs are not that bad either. The hotel and beach club in high season may be a little too busy with kids. The entertainment was all day and nite so kids completely love it and you can relax. All together a fabulous holiday which i would definately go back to.

Just returned from this hotel and wouldnt go back. It wasnt too bad for the money - have been to worse but also been to better. Food was reasonable although it was mostly chips and no Spanish food, wasnt very warm unless you got there as the fresh stuff was being put out. Beds very uncomfortable but good size rooms and large balconies. All drinks free but if you wanted a bottle of water had to buy this as only glasses of water included in all inclusive. Bottles were 1 euro 50 for 1 litre but you could get bottles form the Spar across the road for 1 euro for 2 litres or 2 euro 25 for 6 litres. Money exchange at the hotel or at the exchange shop across the road. Beach very close - 4.50 per day for sunbed & 4 euro per day for umbrella, most people bought lilos to use and these were generally left at the Thomson swap shop to be reused which was good. Nothing to do at the resort so went in to San Miguel on Thursday to have a look round the shops and go to the craft market! There wer 2 shops which took all of 10 minutes to look round and the craft market!!!!!! 2 old women - 1 selling sausage and the other oven gloves so would suggest giving this a miss!. Had a very late flight back so booked the room until 6pm and paid 30 euros for this. On checking out were accused of stealing a drawer from the bedside cabinet!!!! We noticed it missing on the first day but assumed the hotel knew about it, the receptionist stated if we knew it wasnt there we should have reported it so suggest if you notice anything unusual you report it. I would be interested to know though who woud want to steal 1 bedside cabinet drawer!! Dont let any of my comments put you off as all the kids there seemed to have a super time so enjoy your holiday.

Only downsides to this hotel were the number of lifts which you could queue up to twenty minutes for and the dining room staff who weren't particularly friendly and often cleared your plate before you finished your food. Cleaning staff were excellent as were the reception staff. Thomson reps here were excellent and worked really hard to keep everyone entertained. San Miguel is a very small resort and i would recommend hiring a car to get out and about as taxis are very expensive. The food was as expected but there was always something for every taste. I know everyone raves about the Chinese restaurant but to me it was just like having a takeaway at home and we found ourselves wandering into the main dining room for dessert. Lastly i would like to compliment all the Thomson staff on the island as we found our departure day to be the same as Spanish General strike. Although we had to leave the hotel three hours earlier than planned we were given a packed lunch and escorted to the airport by one of the entertainment staff and once we reached the airport you could not move without someone being there to help. I would definitly recommend Thomson and this hotel to friends.

Just returned today from Ibiza, our first family holiday with our 6 month old baby and had the best time ever. I really don't know what there is to moan about, its a cracking little hotel, great value for money, food drinks location entertainment...everything, all excellent! I don't know if some people just like moaning or book a 3* and expect a 5*, but I would highly recommend this place. Its clean, friendly, very family orientated and the staff from Thomsons were exceptional.
The only niggle is the lifts..yes you do have to wait a while at peak times, but we had no choice with a push chair, if some of the lazy people able to climb the stairs did so and stopped moaning there might not be so much of a problem having to wait!!! Just a thought!
Tips-There is no cash point within walking distance of hotel, so take all the cash you need or you'll need to get taxi to San Miguel which is about 9 euros each way.
We hired a kettle, fridge & steraliser for the babys bottles to make life easier.
Swap shelf in Thomson office great idea (unwanted lilos, suncream etc), so always worth a nosey as you go by.

booked an all inclusive for a family of four me hubby and two teenagers 17,15 just before we went read a review that really put me off so wasn't expecting much happily suprised.As i always book independentely we took a taxi from the airport to port of san miguel(a small quite location)taxi cost 35€ day time i thought that was ok were trying to get a bus but would have had to change at santa eulalia as the bus directely to sanmiguel only runs on mon & wed and with two very heavy cases and 4 people it was money well spent. Arrived at the hotel about noon oh if you book any of the three hotels known as sanmiguel resort they all have an indiviudual name so i just said sanmiguel hotel taxi driver asked me which one so we went up to the top one firstly (the gallion) not that one so then we tried the next one down and yes that was the one didn't think room would be ready but it was the reception is on floor 8 and are room was floor 8 whch worked out well as the main dining room was floor 8.Room was really good modern and obviously had a resent makeover, bathroom basic but clean and functional. small flat screen telly nice view with being high up.Aircon in room was a little noisey but very much needed and soon got used to it. Beds comfy and the beauty of being on the top floor no one moving furniture at 3a.m !!!!!!! Food really good in dining room also lots of snacks available at various locations you can use all the three hotels great views from the gallion above and great mexican snack bar. Chinese resturant on floor 8 of the hotel but this must be booked so if you like chinese book it on arrival as we got in on the thur even though arrived on sat. The evening entertainment got a great thumbs up but we didn't bother as we liked a walk about after our meal. Met lots of nice people and didn't see any roudyness just couples, & mixed aged families. All the staff were jolly and about the best staff we have encountered. The only thing i could say on a negative vibe is the resort is extreamly quite we knew this so if you like shops this place is not for you i felt very relaxed which is just what i wanted from my hol. The only other thing to mention is some people did experience difficulty with lifts i think that was maily people with push chairs we walked down most of the time and sometimes back up did us all good. So to sum up picturesque quite resort but plenty of hotel entertainment. lovely beach great fun was had by us we bought a loaf everyday to feed the fish what fun!!oh and my 17 yr old loved using the gym.

Me and my partner, 23 & 30 stayed in Hotel San Miguel. We stayed for 1 week mid July 2010. We arrived and were met by the hotel staff on reception, very kind, gave us the information of the hotel and directed us to our room, the room was very nice, clean, large and cleaned every day by the staff - clean towels on request from the cleaners - who were always happy to help.
The hotel is very big, the resurant is on the 8th floor, along with the reception, and the pools and bar is on the 1st floor, so if the lifts wernt working then you had a good old walk - this was the case quite a few times during our stay - which for a couple isnt really an issue, but for familys and people who couldnt walk very well, this service was poor.
The pools are kept lovley, and clean - and there is a pool in the hotel san miguel which is more for the quite life type of people, and in the beach club there was a larger more fun pool that we went to every day - entertainment round the pool, the westen salon which served food all day and drinks.
the food was ok, I am quite picky with food and didnt enjoy it as much as my partner, but you need to remeber - its a 3* hotel - you get what you pay for.

all in all - great hoilday - fantastic staff and evening entertainment for adults and children. food was average, rooms great, pools brill.

there isnt nothing really around this hotel, is more of a stay in and enjoy type of place, the beach is a stones throw from your room, and beautiful. i would go again.
