With a beachfront location and its own waterpark, this hotel puts everything at your fingertips. There's a separate pool on hand, too, and another one for children. And as well as a buffet restaurant, an à la carte sits right by the beach.
Pulled right up against Playa Taurito Beach, the Hotel Paradise has clinched one of the best spots in town. Not only does it put you footsteps from the sand, it offers up sweeping views over the Atlantic Sea. Plus, if you want to get out and explore, the centre of Puerto Rico is less than ten minutes in a taxi.
At the hotel, the main talking point is the pool scene. There’s a turquoise number flanked by palm trees, but it’s the waterpark that deserves special mention. It’s got the full spectrum of slides, from a kamikaze to a sidewinder. What’s more, little ones can splash around in their own pool, which comes complete with a pirate ship.
At mealtimes, choose from international dishes in the buffet restaurant or sample the a la carte menu down on the beach. And for after-dinner entertainment, you can look forward to lively shows and music in the bar.

I would have given this 5 stars but for the resort where we felt a bit trapped.
This hotel is adults only, which worked well, a good mix of ages too and the resort has loads of children so you don't feel like you are in an old folks home.
Hotel was very good, staff couldn't do enough for you. We even joined in with a few activities.
Good rooms, very comfortable and plenty of space, clean, good linen and bathroom, nice balcony. We had a lovely view but be careful as some don't. Corridors are open to fresh air but we never saw a cockroach and very few mosquitoes.
Food was self service with loads of choice, but few frills, nice local dishes, all very fresh, tasty and clean.
The evening entertainment was a bit poor in the hotel but the resort shares an open space where there is evening entertainment (bar is part of the AI deal).
The whole resort seems to be owned by the same company, if you have children I think it would be a great resort, lovely waterpark (busy at weekends).
The water taxi/bus doesn't stop here, you have to get a taxi or bus into Puerto Megan
We enjoyed it very much, if we go again we'll probably have a carMore
3rd year coming to this hotel and its still amazing!!!
just came back from this hotel after staying for a week in October 2014 - had an amazing time, there were 9 of us altogether age range of 3 to 50 and we loved every minute of it. staff etc work really hard and the animation team were brilliant at keeping everyone entertained. missed having Robert (mini club supervisor) this year as my kids thought he was brilliant. will definitely be booking again for next October.More

Fantastic family holiday!
We booked this holiday in January , then I read reviews on trip advisor and panicked. I emailed the hotel and all the concerns I had were addressed.
We travelled as a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 kids (7/3). We arrived in resort after midnight to a very warm reception and we were given food bags to keep us going.
Room was spacious and spotlessly clean, also cleaned thoroughly everyday.
Food, a good range of salads meat and desserts every lunch and dinner time, plenty of variety for kids too. Reception, restaurant , entertainment staff all very pleasant friendly and helpful and very good with kids.
Waterpark was also brilliant, yes it's saltwater but if you wear goggles it's fine! We spent 4-6hrs there everyday!
I honestly can't find anything bad to say!
Just to add my son celebrated his birthday during our trip, we informed the hotel, they made a cake which we paid for, reserved a table in the restaurant and set it for us!
We had a fab week can't praise it enough!
Not a fault but shower facility's on last day not great for family's with kids, the spa across the road was nice though.More
Dont believe all you read
Firstly, this was our 1st family holiday abroad,(we went early September 2014) however I have been abroad many times before. the reviews on this hotel really scared us! we were so worried about all the things people were saying, we have 3 young children,(8,6,2) so were concerned! BUT we got there, the reception staff were very friendly (not rude or ignorant as stated in other reviews) We got there late at night, and they had provided a small selection of food and drinks for us on arrival, which was great! our room was ok! yes there were minor imperfections, but this did not affect our stay in any way! we were very concerned about the staff being 'grumpy' or abusive as stated in some other reviews, but in fact all the staff were very polite, friendly and helpful! we did notice a member of staff being shouted at in the restaurant, but it was over something very silly, of that the coffee machine was turned off at night! all the staff were very friendly to all of my children, which made them feel great. The pool was great! there was NO rush for sun loungers, yes there were a few people who put towels on and left them for the day, but there were plenty more! I have one child who is quite a picky eater, and the only thing suitable for him was pizza and chips, so he did get very bored with the food, but otherwise it was fine.
the only downside we had to the holiday was that the waterpark is salt water! my children got in the water once and got straight out as they didn't like it, but that didn't ruin our holiday!
overall our holiday was fab!!!
if I was to try and find a fault, I would say that the hotel should provide tea and coffee facilities in each hotel room, I think that was the only problem I could find!More

Ok i guess
Hotel on the whole is OK, nice location but there isn't much to do in taurito as it only consists of 6 hotels in a valley and some souvenir shops selling the usual holiday tat. The night entertainment is awful and geared around the kids for 4 hours with competitions and stupid clowns reeling off the same lines night after night, after that its a 2 hour caberiet show which is as about as exciting as watching paint dry. The whole place shuts down about 11pm.
The water park is cool as its free entry but be warned its salt water.
Food is ok but some nights got a little boring.
Not all alcohol is included in all inclusive so only the beer, cheep wines and the normal spirits like vodka, gin, brandy and rum.
Rooms are standard but the beds are pretty old and un-comfy and the pillows in our room were like sand bags. the walls are pretty thin also and i had to put up with hearing an old man being sick night after night at about 12/1pm when he got back to his room.
Staff are friendly and the place is clean,
If your looking for a cheap holiday and have kids and are planning on seeing the rest of the south of the island then id say give it a try, but if your a couple and looking for fun, excitement and night life then id recommend somewhere elseMore
