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 a main building and an annexe 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 everything from archery to art classes.

Very good hotel
Just returned from a 11 day break at the ClubHotel Riu Paraiso. We were booked in to our room within 5 minutes, reception staff were friendly on arrival. The rooms are fine with two double wardrobes 10 hangers in each plenty of draw space, a good sized bathroom with sink bath with overhead shower and toilet. A fridge and safe are in the room free of charge, water collected from reception. The Hotel is very clean and the food was hot and plentiful. full breakfast, cereals, salads, fruit, tea and coffee. Evening meal had plenty of cooked meats potato's and vegetables salads and cakes and fruit. Don’t worry about any evening meal dress code many people were dressed as if they were going to the beach. The main restaurant can be a extremely crowded at times but the staff work hard to ensure that a tables are cleared quickly. Only one main bar between restaurant and entertainment area very busy but never had to wait to get a drink. We don’t do Riu evening entertainment it really is very poor, the entertainment staff are very good in the day time activity's. The pool area gets busy after 10am, you can always get a sunbed but the beds in a prime position are all gone by 7am. Nice walk along a spotless promenade to the shops restaurants and bars. Gate at the back of hotel leading onto the promenade. We were on the top floor in the main building which was near everything. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who likes walking or relaxing in the sun.More

Enjoyed a fab 7nights at this hotel
We have just returned home after a 7 night stay at this hotel. Check-in was quick and easy and all staff on reception were very welcoming. Our room was ready for when we arrived with no problems throughout the whole stay. The room was very spacious with air-con, a fairly large bathroom, and a balcony. The maid cleans the rooms everyday. The pool areas were very spacious with plenty of sun beds and parasols. The main restaurant was nice with a wide variety of hot and cold foods, and with a choice of three themed restaurants we were spoilt for choice, the Asian restaurant was exceptionally nice. The bar was sufficient with a fairly large choice of drinks. The staff work 24/7 to maintain the highest standard of cleanliness throughout the hotel, completely faultless. The entertainment team were good with lots of activities planned throughout the day for the whole family to enjoy. The location of the hotel was spot on, with just a short walk to local amenities such as bars, restaurants, gift shops, supermarkets etc. There are several beaches located nearby, one is directly opposite with the others just a short bus/taxi journey away. We would highly recommend this Clubhotel to all ages, and we will be booking to stay in a Clubhotel Riu next year. More
Change is needed :(
Our 2014 Holiday here at this hotel after our visit here last year .... We were this time very Disappointed :( The room we were given had a number of faults that we could not accept very stressed start as my husband after working hard does expect when you pay for 4star to receive a standard. .. Air Condition / Celling Fan / not working ... no bed side lights had to use mobile phone light to visit bathroom not good !!! Room was very clean no problems there we asked to change our room this took 3hours the morning after as the reception staff had to ask what looked like a chain of people before they said yes I should explain that this hotel is huge on two sides does seem very unfair that English customers stay on one side and other clients... from other countrys stay on the other you will be shocked to know the main hotel rooms are 80% better than the rooms were expected to accept i am shocked and not happy about this at all....... :( its almost a joke. The staff all work very hard to make your holiday all you could want it to be nothing is too much trouble. we were here in Sept 2013 Fantastic Time but i think routine has got the better of them here and the managers and teams need to take note everything from the food choice / shows / games everything was the same ???? so your watching / playing / eating the same for customers that have been here before this not good at all :( This has really put us off from making another trip to this hotel.More

Good all inclusive hotel with excellent food and drink. Little disappointing that Wi Fi was only available in Reception and at a cost. There was evening entertainment but it was in an inside theatre and was not of a great standard -would have been nice to have some sort of entertainment on the outside terrace in the evening. Overall though a great holiday.More
Booked through Thompsons. Excellent flight from Newcastle, on time. Met in Lanzarote by rep, clear, concise instructions. Arrived at hotel approx. 45 minutes after landing.The package was all inclusive. Hotel is big and split into two parts. Reception staff efficient and helpful. Two rooms booked and next door to each other. Rooms immaculate.. has this hotel had a recent upgrade?? Bathrooms immaculate. Bedrooms include fridge, safe, fan, air conditioning and balcony. Housekeeping was perfection, when requesting some more pillows they were in our rooms by the time we got there!! Free bottles of water are kept at reception, just ask. Leave them in fridge for quick rehydrationtion top up! Arriving after 22:00 meant there was no food available but 5 minute walk took us to restaurants which sorted us with a beer and pizza. . Food was excellent!! Plenty, plenty of everything! salads, fruit, meat, cheese, cold meats, copious breakfast cereals, eggs, bacon etc. restaurant is busy but never ever that busy that we couldn't find a table. All buffet style but this was great. Staff quick and efficient with table clearing. Watch out for Viky the breakfast chef who smiles and sings every single morning!!! Two restaurants, buffet style can be booked for a change of dining experience, juices, beers, wine on tap and spirits behind bar which open 10:30 - 00:00, cocktails, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Kids club available, arts club, tennis etc, beach two minutes across road. Puerto del Carmen five min taxi ride at E3.00, book taxi at reception and as if by magic ...! The whole hotel is absolutely immaculate, even the pool staff check on sun umbrellas for damage, dirt etc and change them immediately! Pool area is beautiful and the second pool on the other side of hotel has swim up bar and quieter...although ours was not noisy or busy.....although all the games, aerobics etc happen at this pool. The entertainment team are on the go day and night, they all speak at least four languages, they smile, laugh and are exceptionally polite ALL THE TIME!!!!! The night entertainment can be a bit hit and miss but the show the team put on our last night was fabulous and had us all singing, not everyone's taste, a bit tongue in cheek but all provided with passion! The hotels managers were ever present, checking food temps, speaking to guests and generally, quietly making sure that the guest experience was the best it could be. Staff went about their duties quietly, efficiently and ALWAYS had a 'good morning' and a smile. In September the only children were mainly a few German kids, lots of German and Spanish holiday makers. My only 2 complaints........the beds....uggh not brilliant. They are on metal wheeled frames with a hard board base with a mattress on top....this is clearly to ease transition from double to twin rooms but none of us had particularly comfortable sleeps and secondly....bloody smokers.....there were designated smoking areas which a few blatantly ignored, this needs to be enforced, also when sitting pool side they would bring their bloody ashtrays with them. It isn't fair. Maybe, at risk of alienation( which as a cancer nurse I really do not care) smokers need to have their own area around the pool side. Apart from this I loved my well earned holiday! I highly recommend a stay there!!!!More
