The international buffet restaurant is where you'll find breakfast, lunch and dinner on offer.It's a great place to visit for late breakfast after a lie in. There's also show cooking, watch the tasty dishes being prepared right in front of you. There's a themed buffet once a week, with poolside seating.
The entertainment programme is suitable for adults with a combination of live music and high calibre shows, there's definitely something to offer everyone. Just check the entertainment programme for more information. You may prefer to dance the night away at the disco under the bridge between the hotels. The disco kicks off at 10pm.

We visited here in February 2013. Nice hotel for a week in the sun. Plenty of sunbeds, choice of restaurants, bars and pools. Nothing outstanding and nothing terrible. Does what it says on the tin! Staff very helpful. They make an effort with the shows for the evening which aren't to everyone's taste but are worth having a look at. All inclusive food and drinks plentiful. We had a room with a litte terrace which was nice to sit out at, and close enough to a bar to get drinks! Beds were hard but topper mattresses availableMore
Another great week at Riu Paraiso
Just returned yesterday from Lanzarote. This is the 5th time we've been to the Riu Paraiso, Lanzarote and it is still as great as ever. We emailed the hotel and said we had been before and they gave us a lovely room in the main block with a sea view.
Food was good, plenty of choice, 3 themed restaurants, all good, breakfast could be had in the Mexican restaurant which was much quieter.
Hotel was very busy but we always managed to get sunbeds in decent spots. Weather was very good, even had numerous patio heaters outside for the cooler nights.
Staff, we still recognized even after 2 years, bar staff were very friendly.
Entertainment is still poor, mostly reps doing the shows, same ones year after year.
Thomson reps were friendly and helpful, wifi in reception only and 1 euro for 30 minutes, think this could be improved. Met some great friends and had a wonderful stay. Definitely be going again in the future.More
A quiet enjoyable holiday
This is a very big and busy hotel.
The rooms are clean but tired and in need of an up-date.
The hotel was clean, tidy & the staff worked hard and are very helpful & friendly.
We went all inclusive & was impressed with the selection of food but this became very repetitive as the week went on.
The all inclusive drinks package wasn't anything to get excited about as you only drink the local products as against the real thing we are used to at home.
The cocktails were very disappointing as they looked good but that was it.
The evening entertainment was in-house & was 'ok'.
The area was very quiet & the beaches were huge, clean with volcanic sand.
Local bus service was good & not expensive.
We went on one organised trip - Discover Lanzarote which was very good & interesting.
The sun is very hot - so factor up or get burnt !!More
This is a big hotel in two distinct blocks, apparently the quieter side is the old hotel and the "noisier" side the new development. Our room was in the old side where it was indeed quieter and away from the bar and restaurant area. There are two distinct pool/pool bar areas which gives you a choice. The beds are a little packed in around the pools but it means there is always a bed available. The nearby beach (across the road through a gate) is gorgeous and under used.
There are buzzy and quiet communal areas as you wish.
The buffet restaurant was fantastic, occasionally you had to queue to be seated but that was rarely for long. couldn't fault the food and the service was friendly and efficient.
If we had a criticism it would be that it is quite a long way between the sides of the hotel (and we went training for triathlons so its not a fitness issue) via a walkway that may not be ideal for the elderly or young children. There is also no free wifi which is disappointing nowadays. we relied on our own 3g but heard bad reports of the quality of the paid wifi in the lobby
We would definitely go back.More

Holiday in Lanzarote
This is a club hotel with style.The reception staff were very helpful.The hotel was always being cleaned. It's quite a large hotel so if mobility is an issue for you check with the hotel for rooms best suited to your requirements. The rooms were very clean. There was plenty of choice in the restaurant, anyone that says there isn't is VERY hard to please, but as we know some people just love to complain. The Asian restaurant serves top class food, we highly recommend a visit. All staff from management up to the gardeners, pool staff, and cleaners were really friendly.More
