ClubHotel Riu Paraiso Lanzarote Resort  


The pool scene steals the show at this large, whitewashed hotel. Four swimming pools sit within strolling distance of the beach, and spacious terraces give way to flower and palm-filled gardens. One of the pools has a swim-up bar, plus there’s another bar around the corner, complete with plenty of outdoor seating.

Another great thing about this place is the lengthy list of sports and activities on offer. Head to the multi-purpose court for a game of mini football, or practise your aim at the airgun shooting range. If being pampered is more your thing, the wellness centre comes with a sauna, a beauty salon and massage treatments.

There’s just as much choice when it comes to dining, with three restaurants to pick from. The main one is all about big pan-global buffets, while the three themed ones specialise in Asian, Canarian and Mexican cuisine themed restaurant. The Asian restaurant is particularly popular because of its cosy and intimate atmosphere.

Last but not least, a word on the rooms. Things are fairly traditional. Extras come in the form of satellite TVs and air-conditioning, while spacious balconies complete the scene.

very comfortable

Just returned form our second stay at this hotel.Great food,very friendly staff and super efficient management.The only change from last year was the 20 euro charge for wifi which is only available in reception so you have the delight of listening to others loudly face timing at great length.And the wifi area is a magnet for teens and pre teens who gather there in large numbers glued to their smart phones and tablets as they are wont. This is a very large complex (originally two hotels) so if you have mobility issues be sure your room is near Reception and the dining rooms.Last year we went during school term time.This year it was school holidays and the hotel was full with lots and lots of children of all ages behaving as children do.If other peoples' children are likely to be an irritant I'd be sure to book during the school term if you can. But very comfortable rooms,great climate,lovely food.What's not to like?More

We've just come home after spending 10 nights at the resort and it was fab, the hotel is lovely and very clean, the food was great (my husbands a chef so he's very picky) all the staff were helpful and friendly especially the kids club staff- they were brilliant my daughter went to the club on our last two days as it was Easter and they had loads going on and she cried when we left because she'd had such a good time and was so fond of the staff there. I honestly don't have a negative thing to say about the resort, We'll defiantly be returning soon More

Our second stay at this hotel

Fairly good hotel. Staff are friendly and helpful with the exception of the odd few. While we were there in March 2014 some of the tiles on the pathways were being replaced and not before time. The sunbeds are very poor and could do with being replaced. Many are sagging. Pool towels are strictly monitored and are one per person. You are given a voucher for your Towel on arrival but a word of warning, make sure you return your towel to reception on check out, otherwise you will be charged. The towels in the room are not the best quality but are adequate. The beds are firm but comfortable, (Not everyone's preference). I don't know why that they have a habit of washing around the pool at 9 o'clock in the morning, Leaving pathways drenched. This means the tiles are very slippery. Food choices are quite good and overall this hotel is a reasonable 4*More

Lovely hotel

This is a lovely hotel with very pretty grounds and pools. We had a lovely week here. The food is nice and drink selection good. Puerto Del Carmen is a really lovely place and we enjoyed staying here. The only downside was the weather, we only had 3 good days out of 7 and the wind can be very cool, especially on an evening.More


Great Apart From The Return Airport

We have just returned from a great break at this resort. Good room, very clean, lovely pools and weather, good food, great location, friendly staff - all fab! BUT - don't fly with Thomsons on a Sunday. The airport for the return flight is totally congested by Thomson flights. We queued from 1800 until we got onto our plane at 2010. There is simply not enough capacity for all the Thomson flights and having queued for over an hour to bag drop we had to do the same again for security. We got through just in time to board our flight. It was hot, stressful and of course included the usual aggro from idiots pushing in. There were no seats for the elderly or infirm, no drinks available and no sign of Thomson reps (I don't blame them really). AND - it was exactly the same last year (we had assumed that was a one-off). A rotten end to a great holiday - we wont be going back to Lanzarote.More
