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.

This was our first trip to this hotel and Lanzarote itself. Very short ride from the airport for starters. Hotel very large and modern. The gardens are beautiful and very well maintained. Reception staff very friendly, and efficient at all times. Nothing seems too much trouble for them. Our room was extremely nice, with two balconies which were very sunny overlooking the beach/sea. The hotel is spotless wherever you go, housekeeping excellent. We have been to some beautiful hotels over the years and this one beats the lot for cleanliness. The food is excellent with lots of variety. In the main eating place they also had theme evenings. The salad bar was outstanding with so much choice. The soup was even good. Plus the dresserts were good with a good variety of fruit as well. Also had a speciality dessert most nights. We want to the Asian three times which was very good. Mexican twice also good but all in all the main place had everything that anyone could want to eat. Entertainment was very good with a few professional acts, and the entertainment team performing on the other nights which were extremely amusing and had us in stitches most of the time. Bar staff were friendly and efficient, nothing was too much trouble for them. Cocktails were nice although they were already made up and just put through the blender with ice. They are very generous with the spirits, which most people likes. Proseco appeared very popular. I have booked to take my daughter and granddaughter there again for ten days at Easter this year as we were so impressed with it. Facilities are great with some lovely walks around the grounds. Plus there are some lovely walks on the prom both ways with some lovely shops and bars etc. Don't hesitate to book this hotel as you won't be disappointed. Standby for another review after Easter after my second holiday there.More

wonderful hotel and staff
absolutely brilliant holiday, staff hotel food etc all wonderful one of the best holidays we have ever had Hotel clean staff friendly location great beach was lovely will be back with all the family to celebrate our birthdays thank you riu for making such wonderful memoriesMore
wonderful week at the rui paraiso again. Staff were excellent spotlessly clean hotel. Main dining area was very full at peak times would suggest going a little later when it has thinned out, always plenty of variety with fresh food being brought out late into the dining period. Would really encourage visitors to book the themed restaurants for more peaceful dining.More
Very good holiday
This is our fifth visit to this hotel. Value for money and predictably good! Busy hotel with lots of guests. Spacious room. The whole site is very well maintained and cleaned. Lovely warm heated pools, needed in February! Excellent gas burners at night really helped to improve the comfort of chilly evenings. Food as always good but the food quality in the Mexican and Asian this year was particularly good. Very friendly staff, many of them have been there for many years. A good sign, I think. Evening entertainment, as in many hotels, as good as can be expected. All the entertainment staff give 100%. It was good to see a new show, Remember and live singing rather than miming to a backing track. The roller skating was an excellent addition.More
Totally relaxing week
After booking a week at short notice at a really good price you're always a bit worried what it will be like but the Riu Paraiso did exactly what it said on the tin a good room with more draws and cupboards than I've every had the entire place is spotless the site use to be two hotels which are now combined so there's a large pool section and a smaller one,with a heated pool and swim-up bar in winter which also has its own lunch bar, the food is quite good as most buffets are ,there are 3 other restaurant choices you can book for 1 which doubles as Canarian/Mexican on alternate nights which was nothing special and an Asian one that is excellent you need to book this Asap as it fills up quick.The entertainment staff are fantastic they never stop and put on a show for about 1 hour each night and mime to all the music with constant costume changes which may sound a bit naff but is actually an excellent show as its done so smoothly.The hotel is on the sea front promenade,via a gate at the end of the complex,and is a 5 min walk from Playa del Carmen( if you fancy a change and go for a really nice meal try the lanzarote Sorrento it's on the same side as the hotel about a 10 min walk it was beautiful) so all in all we had a brill time all inclusive is always easier with serve yourself beer,wine and coffee a very good 4 Star hotelMore
