A spacious beach is the icing on the cake at this hotel, which comes with 4 pools and restaurants.
This huge place is split between two main buildings and annexe blocks across the gardens. Just over the road there’s a huge sandy beach, and Puerto del Carmen is a half an hour walk away, or 5 minutes in a taxi.
The hotel does well for pools, with 4 plus a couple of extra ones for kids. There’s a quartet of restaurants, including a Mexican. As for activities, there’s a range of things to choose from.

Recently returned from this hotel not that impressed , rooms are very clean clean bed sheets and towels when asked for. Overall the pool areas aren't big enough for the sun beds provided as no room to move, outside chill area don't have enough tables and chairs for the evening as people standing with drinks wating for empty tables. The dinning room and outside areas could not accommodate the people from both hotels 2. Into 1 won't go very cramped. The bar staff are fantastic as were people removing glasses from any tables nothing was to much trouble. And Sergio around the pool what a star..... putting sun brollys up advising not too burn removing cups and plates for people who couldn't be bothered. Restaurant food very nice but gets the same after a few days . This is not a hote that I would return tooMore

1st Visit To a RIU Hotel
E mailed beforehand to ask for a room in main hotel having read some of the reviews about the walk from the other side and my husband has some mobility issues, which was granted, had a room on same floor as reception but having walked across to the quiet pool one day didn't think the walk was too bad but my husband said he wouldn't want to walk there twice a day. Room overlooked the tennis courts so was really quiet and plenty of space and kept very clean had to ask a couple of times to get a couple more pillows and the bed was really hard but bit better with extra pillows. All staff were very pleasant and helpful only encountered one barman who was a bit grumpy. The food was a bit repetitive and the meat could be tough but always managed to find something we liked and the Asian restaurant was lovely. Wifi didn't reach our room but no problem to sit in reception to check e mails. Had no problems finding a sunbed at any tme of day they are a bit close together which means if you want an umbrella the next sun bed probably gets shade too,and there are of course some people who put towels out at silly o'clock even saw one out at midnight!! Overall had a great week and would recommend to a friend.More
The Good Bits.
Excellent holiday, the staff are superb and the Hotel and grounds are both kept in a very neat and clean condition. the beds are a little firm for some people, but mattress toppers are available from housekeeping along with extra pillows. The pools are a bit chilly at first but what do you expect. Try the swim up bar in the smaller pool, this is run by Pedro the magnificent, such an accommodating barman,with a great sense of humour. overall this is a great place to holiday and is well worth a visit,we are returning twice next year so you can see we like this place.More
Ruined by the same idiots who ruined the disco!
Am currently sat at the "quiet" pool Life guard is busy flirting with what I am guessing are the guys mentioned in a previous post about the disco. People are leaving because their overpowering behaviour is going unchallengedMore
Our late summer holiday to Lanzarote and the Riu Paraiso hotel, short transfer time and a warm welcome even though we didn't arrive until late in the evening on the 26th Sept.We were given directions to our room quite a trek but ok for us, our cases were delivered to our room quickly and there was a buffet laid on for all late arrivals which was very welcome. We asked for a pool view room and that's exactly what we got it was clean and bed comfortable for us although shower was a bit erratic hot and cold all the time.We ate in the main restaurant for the majority of our meals lots of choice and yummy desserts, also tried the Mexican which was also tasty. There are two pools one quiet and one where all the activities take place, we used the quiet pool as we wanted some chill time,there is also a lunchtime restaurant here and a bar area plus a swim up bar all with good service Throughout our stay all staff were friendly and helpful, all areas were kept spotlessly clean and tidy. We are now back home and missing the hospitality of the staff there. One thing to mention and perhaps this can be done how about a chair/chairs in the curtesey rooms?More
