ClubHotel Riu Paraiso Lanzarote Resort  

The 4 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 4 within the palm-filled gardens. Plus Playa de los Pocillos’ sandy beach is just across the road.

Dining is big news here, with Canarian, 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.

nice break

stayed at this hotel a few times before, and once again a very enjoyable stay. Staff very good and friendly, food very good as well. Had a few problems with the room reported it to reception and they fixed them the same night.The only thing wrong is the hard beds wish riu would spend some money on better beds, only a miner issue though. Cant wait to go back!!More

Excellent staff make this hotel

I have stayed in many Riu hotels all over including the Riu Palaces etc but this has so far been my favourite. The rooms were nice and clean, the garden and pool areas all well maintained but what really excels this place are the staff, they are the friendliest most welcoming I have come across, from arrival I just felt relaxed and looked after. The food was good but we did eat out a few times especially at lunch only because the local tapas are excellent. I tried all the a la carte options and again all good and a nice selection. I have been to Riu hotels with a superior selection but for a week in the sun it was just perfect for us. The entertainment was amusing I must say, the team done their best and we did stay in the hotel a few nights to experience it but most nights we went into Puerto del Carmen as there is a good selection of bars there. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will go back! More

Sam C,


AVOID (really, avoid) if you like a quiet pool area. This is a great hotel spoiled by very intrusive. thumpingly loud music around the pool area that is periodically punctuated by "entertainment" staff bellowing through loud speakers !More

David S,

Lovely holiday

Booked here with the advise of my fellow trip advisors, it was a much needed break from reality and we certainly achieved that. The hotel is large, we asked for a sea view room and that was granted. It was in the far side, but we didn't mind as was a much needed walk after all inclusive eating. I must admit, that the second hotel is a little 'dead' and without atmosphere, I wonder if just some gently music would help, and even access to coffee/ soft drink facilities in the foyer area. The rooms are dated, but we had gotten over that quite easily, and grew to love our room. The food got very repetitive, in huge week we were there, and ate out. Pools are lovely, wifi should be free, but I am sure that will come soon. Didn't attend thompson meeting, as feel safe in Spain to book independently. Go to Last Minute in Puerto del Carmen.More

great holiday

Just home from a great holiday in Lanzarote the hotel complex was huge but extremely well run and thought out As an all inclusive hotel it was one of the best we have stayed in There were so many different bars pools areas to just relax which meant if you wanted entertained it was all there and seemed good but if you wanted a quieter holiday you could easily find quieter areas. We were on the ground floor in the main building our room was very good with views over the lovely gardens and very handy to everything the higher floors have better views of the beach and the pool areas but how much time do you actually spend in your room The rooms in the main building are bigger if that's important to you.The food was very good with plenty of choice but there are 2 other restaurants in the complex we really enjoyed our Chinese. The staff were brilliant from management to bar staff to cleaners to entertainment etc etc Everywhere was very clean and constantly kept that way We never had a problem with sun beds but there is the usual towel booking of beds!! It is generally a non smoking hotel with smoking areas marked of course there were people lifting ashtrays and bringing them to the pools but thankfully not too many We loved being so close to the beach unfortunately no beds due to rip tides we also loved the swim to bar always good for a bit of fun!!! The BIG downside to this complex was the almost lack of WiFi only available in reception a real pain and you had to pay for it Probably the only reason I wouldn't go back We stayed in Viva c'an Pickafort in Mallorica in July it had WiFi everywhere on site free excellent I would go back there. If WiFi isn't your thing then its an excellent complex Oh one more tiny thing there are no coffee/tea making facilities in the rooms we were so handy to the main area this didn't affect us but the complex is huge so you could have a long walkMore
