|This is an honest opinion about the Hotel Riu Miguel and island of Gran Canaria. The over all marks are excellent 3* should be 4* for servce/food and bedroom comfort . Staff are all friendly the hotel the manager even asked us personally if every thing was ok i call that service. The hotel is 1 minuite away from the nearest shopping/ bars centre etc and it is 1500m from the beach but no worries as there is a free regular bus from and to the hotel. The rooms are fairly big, clean, plenty of draws and storage space for cases and clothes, nice bathroom but for all of you bidet lovers you are out of luck but who uses them any way?. Although our room was over looking the main road this wasnt an inconvinence as the patio doors blocked out most of the noise any way. The room has a ceiling fan which most 3* hotels dont even have in the canaries (hint take a pair of tweezers so you can pull the very short bead cord to alter the fan speed to your liking.|
The food is superb with a wide choice of salads, and the hot dishes even better with most the meat, fish. etc being coooked on the spot in front of you a choice of fish, beef, pork. Poultry availble every night and a wide choice of vegetables at least another variety of potato as well as chips. The breakfast's are good but you only get either bacon or sausage(hot dog type)or ham either day you can also have any of the available cold meats too but i have found that out in most hotels any way but there was enough to choose from and fill you up till tea time any way.
The resort/hotel Playa Del Ingles wasnt as rowdy as i thought it would be even in the main season it is suitable for all ages and lifestyles. The resort has several shopping/bar centres not one strip as most resorts but it does give you a choice.
The island has blue bay parking in some areas this means you have to pay at the ticket meter although not really expensive look around cause on the other side of the road or around the corner it may or will be free or park on a crossing (joking) cause i saw the warden put a ticket fine on the blue bay but ignored the car on the crossing.
If you can hire a car as there is plenty of scenery to see.
So book your holiday at the Riu Don Miguel as you wont be dissapointed if i was i would have told you. (WEST MIDLANDS)

|Playa del Ingles lies about 18 miles from the airport at Las Palmas, and has one of the densest amounts of accommodation blocks, restaurants and bars you will find anywhere on the island. If your looking for good sandy beaches offering a large variety of water sports, this is the place to be. The downside is that they get very crowded, but a short walk along the front will bring you to the quieter area of San Augustin. Dozens of commercial centres and the area known as the Kasbah, offer you plenty of gift ideas and duty free. Although there are a few good quality hotels, most of accommodation consists of apartment blocks from where you can sample the delights of the hundreds of bars, clubs and the casino.|
|Like most of the popular European resorts, you'll find a huge amount of bars, pubs and restaurants here, serving every food combination you can think of. Plenty of fast food outlets give you the choice of burgers, pizzas and various fried chicken combinations with generous helpings of chips and salad if that's what you like. More traditional fare such as Sopa de Pescado (garlic stew with fish and tomatoes), Calderetas (lamb stew with almonds) and the fish specials Calamari (squid in batter deep fried) and Longostinos (giant prawns) are all worth a try. The local beers are as good as anything you'll drink back home and probably cheaper too. Wines and of course Sangria, are there to be enjoyed at every meal, and add to that the imported varieties and your drinking choice is endless.|
