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.

myself and husband have just returned from a weeks holiday at this hotel we did'nt know that the hotel had once been 2 different hotels our room was in the very far end of the hotel room 3336 a good 10 min walk from the main reception.We had the swim up bar at our end and a snack/bar area but it did not open till 10-30 for tea/ coffee etc which wasnt good if you wanted a drink before 10_30 you had to go over to the main restaurant as no tea/ coffee making facilitys were in your rooms, not good if ur not very mobile.Also room 3336 has its double bed up on a small platform that isnt lit up enough when the lights in your room are out when you go to bed.someone will end up going a cropper and hurting themselves i fear.Food was ok but pretty much the same stuff nite after nite.Staff were all brill.But we wont be returning.More
10/10 for Customer Service
We have just returned from a week at this R U I Hotel. Before the holiday I sent an e mail to the hotel asking for a quiet room near the restaurant,as my husband has arthritis. We arrived and has a lovely room on level 2 so it was a short walk to everywhere. Thank you. It is a well run hotel,the Manager Alex cannot spell his Spanish name was always around,talking to us all,very good P R. Food was what you expect from A I,always found something to eat. The staff in the restaurant were very kind to a blind couple,showing them to a table. The guy looking after the young children was awesome. He looked after them,switched languages so easy and he did make me laugh with his antics! We only stayed by the pool by the restaurant. The beach is a short walk away and is very clean, great for an early swim and walk the beach,I did this alone and felt safe. I will recommend this hotel and we are likely to return.More
Just returned from a 2 week holiday with my twin sister and our husbands. This holiday was special as our husbands were celebrating their 70th birthday this summer. I had e-mailed them asking for 2 lovely rooms with a pool @ sea view, we were not disappointed as we got 2 lovely rooms together on the top floor. Monica the receptionist checked us in and was most helpful. All staff in reception and indeed all over the RIU are most helpful and pleasant . When my son booked the hotel for us , I had a look at a few reviews on trip advisor and some of these were not good , so I was a bit anxious on going there as I didn't know what to expect.My what a lovely surprise we got. The hotel itself is lovely and very spacious. It has over 500 rooms and always has jovial feel about it. The rooms are cleaned daily and bed changed as many times as you like. It is kept spotlessly clean at all times. The Restaurant has a great variety of food most of it cooked in front of you with beautiful fresh fruit and a selection of food to suit everyone. There is a lovely atmosphere in this hotel, we have stayed in Lanzarote several times over the years and in different hotels, always going al- inclusive but we all agree this one is definitely one of the best we have stayed in. Hoping we can return next year and will be staying in the RIU club Paraiso once again. We thank all the staff for a fabulous holiday. Happy holiday maker Margaret ( Ireland)More
Summer holiday find
Just back from Los Pocillos where we were pleasantly surprised by this lovely hotel. In a previous visit to Lanzarote we were totally ripped off in another hotel the H10 Rubicon Palace so we were wary of the resort. Our fears were totally unnecessary as this hotel far exceeded our expectations, the staff everywhere in the hotel were brilliant the food was of a very good quality and standard and the bars although busy were very professional. On arrival we were given a suite without any prompting which was massive so very clean everywhere. The pool area we used was jet washed daily and mopped anything and everything you would have wanted was available at this hotel, we are in the process of checking prices for next September.More
Lovely stay... just a few minor things!
We stayed for one week at this hotel in September. The hotel itself is beautiful. Very clean, very welcoming. Beautiful pools, which are well maintained. There's an issue with sun beds in that they're very closely packed together, but that's to accommodate the number of people - there's a little bit of a problem with people occupying sun beds with their towels while they're away at this hotel, but you will usually find a couple of free sun beds together somewhere even if it's not by the main pool. The location is good, right by the beach (although the beach is windy and the sand hurts a lot when I hits you so we didn't spend long there!) It's about 10 minutes walk to a local shop and 20-30minutes walk to the shops, restaurants and bars in Puerto del Carmen. The rooms are nice enough but a little dated. We stayed in room 337 in the main part of the hotel. The doors use actual keys instead of key cards and they're not that easy to open we had to wrestle with it a few times! They have everything you need including a little fridge but I suggest you bring your own hairdryer as the one in bathroom is old and won't dry your hair very quickly. We booked a room with a view over the pool which was really lovely. Staff were all great. Very friendly, welcoming and helpful! The entertainment staff were all lovely and talented but I didn't think much of the evening shows (I don't find men dressing as women in every other sketch very funny, to me it's lazy comedy) however my travelling companion really enjoyed them so I guess it comes down to personal taste! I'm a pescetarian and didn't have any trouble finding things to eat in the restaurant and I think a vegetarian would be okay too. The only trouble is they don't label things as well as they perhaps could, so a lot of the time I had to ask or leave something because I wasn't sure if it had meat in it. My travelling companion is a fussy eater and there was lots for her to eat too! The food was mostly of a good quality - I wouldn't say perfect but we still went up for seconds most nights! I've read a few reviews which said the restaurant was busy but we had no problems finding a seat and the queues weren't too long. Overall we were very happy with the hotel. The few things we didn't like were made up for by how welcoming everyone was and by how clean and well looked after the hotel was. We would definitely recommend it.More
