ClubHotel Riu Paraiso Lanzarote Resort  

The four pools are the stars of this big hotel. And there’s a sandy beach just across the road, too.

This vast, whitewashed hotel is home to a great pool scene – there are four within the palm-filled gardens. Plus Playa de los Pocillos’ sandy beach is just across the road.

Dining is big news here, with RIU World, Mexican and Asian food among your options. The Asian place gets plaudits for its sushi. And in the evenings, entertainment ranges from cabaret to live music.

Second visit, but first review!

My wife and I first visited this hotel in April, this year. This being something different because we always go to Sharm, but can't at present. We enjoyed ourselves so much we returned on 26 June for a further 2 weeks. The hotel is very clean and the cleaners always busy, (don't stand still too long or you will be swept away!). The room was always cleaned to a very high standard and sheets and towels replaced as requested. For a large all-inclusive, the food was very good with a wide variety to suit most people, but still some moan! I would like to know how or what they eat when they are home. in addition the are a couple of speciality restaurants all included in the price. We liked the Asian very much. Service in the main restaurant was excellent and as with the cleaning very fast when clearing the dirty plates. We always ate where an excellent waitress call Loli waited tables, her williness to help was a credit to the hotel. Considering how busy the hotel was the bar staff were also very swift and efficient, often remembering your previous drink, again an excellent barman and credit to the hotel was Vincento. Bottled water is freely available from reception, and there is a free towel service for use on sunbeds. We enjoyed this hotel so much we have already booked to return at the end of August.More


Lovely break

We returned from this hotel just over a week ago and are already wishing we could go back. The location was perfect for us 15 minute transfer from the airport... And a ten-15 minute walk along to the promenade there was lots of lovely bars and restaurants where we went every evening. We stayed in the hotels second block this was good for us as it had the swim up bar and we found it a bit more peaceful than the main pool, the only thing that would improve is at night that side of the hotel could do with a bar and a terrace as we found we could not always get a seat at the main hotel. The quality of food at breakfast lunch and dinner was lovely we could not fault it and this was the same when we went to the Asian and the Mexican restaurants! The only problem we found with the main restaurant is although the quality of the food is good it is very repetitive we only stayed for a week but we eat in town one night and a lot of other guests had said they had done the same. I would not expect to have to do this on an all inclusive holiday, that said we thoroughly enjoyed our meal out! The weather was spot on! And we will definitely return! More

Better than the Fuerteventura Riu Oliva

I booked this hotel with Riu as part of a two centre holiday,this being the second part. Please check out my review of the Riu Oliva which was the first half of the holiday ( and a much lower standard!!) At first impressions, the hotel was a mile apart from the Riu Oliva that we stayed in the previous 5 days. Much better! ! On check in, we received a couple bottles of water for the room which was great. One of the downsides is that we walked miles to our room,in fact I think our room was pretty much the furthest away from reception you could get. They did put my mum and step dad in a room very close to us, which I had requested,but she struggled to walk so far for breakfast,lunch and dinner every day as she has MS.However,we were so pleased with our rooms, we chose not to complain in case we were moved to worse rooms. We stayed in a large family room which consisted of a large lounge/ dining area with air con tv sofa bed etc. Very spacious and modern. A separate bedroom with large en suite bathroom and air con. we had two balconies,one looked out over the beach,the other looked out over the pool. Air con was great and we were very happy with the room. Food was good. Quite repetitive but so much choice everyday,you could always find something to eat. Fresh fruit and fresh juice every day was great and on a Sunday the food was much better, glass of cava at breakfast etc. Staff were fantastic. Only bad side is the hotel is (or was) two hotels now combined into one. The reception and main restaurant is in the first hotel then you walk along a walkway to the other hotel. Both hotels have pools but the hotel we were staying in only had a snack bar which was only open from 10.30 til about 6. If you wanted breakfast, a decent lunch or dinner,you would have to walk back to where the main restaurant is which was miles. There is a lobby in the second hotel but with a bar no longer open and a big entrance that you can no longer use. This was the other downside. To get outside of the hotel there was only two exits - main reception or a gate out onto the main road in front of the beach... both of these were a fair walk. I think the second hotel bit would benefit from a bar, a restaurant and an exit. The lobby really is lovely and it's a shame it's not used. All in all a good stay. If you're considering either the Riu Paraiso in lanzarote or the Riu Oliva in Fuerteventura,I would choose this one every time. A much much higher standard than the Oliva.More

Nice holiday

I went in December in a group of 9, four of which had been here before. Lovely hotel, the staff were very nice and accommodating, the childrens entertainment kept them busy, food was great - we went over Christmas and there was a lovely change of meal on that day. Also went to the Mexican restaurant which was a nice change. Very close to the airport but didn't hear much noise, if any from it, and it's a very short walk from a bunch of nice touristy shops.More

Nice Hotel but very busy

We have just returned from an enjoyable stay at this hotel but be warned it is very busy. I thought that as the schools in England have not yet broken up that perhaps it would be quieter. I list below the good and bad in relation to this hotel Good Location is 10 mins from the airport. Place is spotlessly clean, the staff work really hard. Apart from one member of staff, everyone else we encountered were very polite and helpful Food is of a good quality for all inclusive, massive choice especially at breakfast Three speciality restaurants Bad Not enough sun beds to go round. I don't lay in but really had to be getting a sun bed at 7 am, by about 9 there was no chance! I personally don't like having the pressure of having to get up to bag a sun bed. Sun beds are also very packed in together so if the neighbouring sun beds are smoking, you get the full benefit of it! Water has to be collected from reception, it would be better if the maid could deliver that daily. There is no room service, you do sometimes get this with all inclusives. The dining rooms were very busy regardless of what time we went to eat but the food was good. It was much better in the speciality restaurants, far more relaxing. We only went to one entertainment night, it was very slow in getting started and appeared to be nothing more than staff miming to records. The hotel appears to have started life as two separate hotels. They are joined by a long wooden walk way which was okay for us but I wouldn't recommend this for the less able bodied. We did a couple of trips with Tui. I really would recommend going to Fire Mountain and especially the trip that incorporated the evening meal. It was one of those pinch me moments, were the view over the volcanos is simply breath taking. We also had a day trip to Fuerteventura which was okay although we spent a couple of hours at the beach and had to hire an umbrella otherwise there would have been no shade. The boat trip coming back was very rough. For those reasons we cancelled the trip we had booked to Los Lobos as I think it would have been a very similar trip and as this island is not inhabited hiring an umbrella would not have been an option!!! Overall a good holiday.More
