RIU Hotels & Resorts Reopens the 251-room Riu Don Miguel Hotel in Playa del Inglés,
Gran Canaria (Canary Islands, Spain) Following Complete Renovation

Palma de Mallorca, 25th July 2012
- The Riu Don Miguel Hotel reopens on 27 July, following an extensive renovation. This iconic hotel in Playa del Inglés, Gran Canaria (Canary Islands, Spain) will offer its guests refurbished rooms and newly designed communal areas. From the coming winter season, the new Riu Don Miguel will be the first ‘Adults Only’  RIU hotel, following on from the success of the 'Adults Only' section of the Riu Touareg Hotel in Cape Verde.

The newly renovated Riu Don Miguel Hotel will be situated in the heart of Playa del Inglés, only a few metres from the shopping area and the Yumbo centre, which houses the gay community’s favourite shops, bars and restaurants. The beach and the seaside promenade are a kilometre and a half away and the hotel offers a free shuttle service for its guests.

Its 251 rooms have been completely renovated using the latest RIU interior design concept which is currently being implemented throughout its hotels, offering a predominately white colour scheme, and simple straight lines, with occasional touches of daring colour, such as violet in the curtains. New features are also being introduced, such as flat screen televisions, air-conditioning, minibar and electronic safes.

The gardens and pool have been completely redesigned, offering a more modern and relaxing space, with a new terrace and a bar called the ‘Divine Lounge’.

The hotel’s range of cuisine has also been extended. Now, in addition to the wide and varied range on offer at the buffet in the main restaurant, which is included in the half-board rate, guests can book the à la carte ‘Body’s’ restaurant at a small additional charge.

The hotel provides a vast entertainment programme, which includes live shows several times a week, a large fully equipped gym which is free to use and a tennis court.
