3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Returned 2nd April after one week at the Riu Don Miguel booked only the week previously. Arrived 2 pm only to be told by reception booking in is from 3 pm so made our way to the bar for an hour. After swift booking in given room 320 which must have the worst view in Gran Canaria, a couple of tennis courts, a pile of old sunbeds and some sort of extractor which worked for about 23 hours a day. Saying that the room was clean good storage space nice bathroom good shower TV fridge and safe. And you get an actual KEY to the room, bit retro that. The dinning room was not big enough for the number of guests, a problem the hotel try to solve by having 2 sittings for dinner, the head waiter gives you a choice, 18.30, or 20.30. The cuisine is good, good choice, plenty of options at both dinner and breakfast. The outside area more modern, nice bar, good selection of drinks but rather expensive. Bar staff very good, dinning room staff run off their feet trying very hard. A good mix of guests, age and nationally, no Russians so that's a big plus. Hotel is about 30 minutes walk to the beach but the hotel run a free bus service. Plenty of nice bars around and about but prices different at them all, avoid the Norwegian bars. All in all a good choice for a spring break.

I've just returned from a 9 night stay at the Riu Don Miguel Playa Del Ingles Gran Canaria, this hotel has an excellent central location close to the Yumbo Centre and other shopping centres in PDI. Having experienced Riu hospitality many times in their 4 and 5 star hotels I was genuinely impressed with the accommodation and service levels received in this 3 star hotel. Food was excellent and plentiful with a huge choice, the hotel was spotlessly clean and all staff from reception to the maids, waiters and restaurant staff could not be faulted. I had read previous reviews about this hotel with some negatives about the lady manageress but I met and chatted with her on numerous occasions and found her to be extremely polite and welcoming and always appeared to be smiling and chatty with the guests. I have no hesitation in booking this lovely hotel again as it represents great value for money on a half board basis, drinks and snacks were reasonably priced and can be either charged to the room or paid for as you go along Towels are provided and can be changed daily for fresh clean ones by the pool area to save having to pack your own for sunbathing.

Hotel was excellent, breakfast & evening meals load of choice and food very good. All staff welcoming and provided good service. The double room we stayed was located on the ground floor and was smart and clean. Located close to the Yumba centre & was about 20 minutes stroll from the beach although Hotel provided free passes for the bus to the beach.

Just spent a week at this lovely hotel the rooms were really great staff friendly and very helpful delicious food a fantastic week .the pool area was super plenty of room the cleanliness and attention to detail was amazing will definitely be going back

Perfect location for the Yumbo Centre and a nice walk to the beaches. A very nice 3 star hotel. Excellent food and wonderful staff. Pool and bar areas are very nice. The room was a good size and very clean with good wardrobe and cupboard space. This is an adult only hotel which was perfect for us. Things to consider are: The towels are plentiful but they have no ‘body’ to them. The bedding was clean but sheets and blankets only. There are NO irons or ironing facilities within the hotel. This is a town centre hotel and as such you will hear traffic noise. Superb value for money and I wouldn’t hesitate in staying again.

Great location for jumbo centre. Staff excellent, Food very good and lots of choice. Bedroom nice and clean with plenty of hangers. Only complaints no iron or ironing facility and towels very worn and in need of replacing

Ours was a 2 week stay in early March and we were here for Carnival which was a fantastic experience and one definitely to be repeated! Great hotel facilities lovely rooms and on a half board basis. We arrived extremely late due to the beast from the east and snow at Birmingham and finally arrived at the hotel at 4.30am so we were thankful for a speedy efficient check in! The restaurant staff work very hard in a very busy restaurant and Bruno our waiter looked after us whenever he was on duty and went out of his way to find us a table in the morning whenever he could as I use a stick due to a health condition he was extremely helpful. In the evening you have your own allocated table as mentioned on previous reviews but in the mornings it was a bit of a free for all at times! All the staff were extremely polite and the room maid called daily. The hotel was in a great location for shopping with the Yumbo centre just over the road and La Tablero shopping centre a €5 taxi ride away worth a visit! So Rui yes we would definitely give you a 5/5 and will be back next year! Muchas Gracias :)

This is our third time here staff are really friendly and helpful The rooms are spotless and a good size only let down is there is no tea or coffee facilities There is a TV and air conditioning plenty of hanging space and drawers there is also a safe in the room (chargeable at main desk) We do half board so breakfast in the morning plenty to choose from as there is in the evening

Great central location for all the town's amenities.About 45 mins to the dunes of maspalomas but not a rush.Accoomodation is great as is the food selection .There is an outside place in the hotel to eat but not recommended if none smoker as it's enclosed and the smoke lingers so that's the down side.Coffee is a bit poor but found proper coffee machine hidden away in a corner....Breakast selection is top as is the different fruit juices available.Meals in the evening are great as is the staff.On the first night you are shown your tad and that's your place for your holiday for evenin meals only. Pool is good as is the sunbed situation and the show that is people rushing to put towels down first thing.Rooms are good and clean .Take own kettle.Like I say the only downside is the morning smoke in the enclosed area. Local shops 5 mins walk

So, calls itself adult only hotel. Sponsor gay pride but if you visit alone and happen to meet someone you get a rude aggressive embarrassing interrogation from reception and your date is told to leave. What’s the point of adults only hotel, next to Yumbo who advertise directly to gay clients and then humiliate and throw out guest. No recommended for solo or gay clients!
