This restaurant is open for buffet breakfast, light lunch and international dishes for dinner. There's also occasional show cooking and themed evenings where you can experience authentic Spanish tapas.
We have just returned from our 2 week holiday! This was an extremely friendly hotel and very good value for money!We were all inclusive and found the quality of both food and drinks to be some of the best we have had!The staff were both very friendly and helpful.I thoroughly recommend this hotel....and they cater for the English better than I have known a hotel in years!More

Stayed here for a week (12-19 Oct). Don't believe the rave reviews it's vile. Our room was like something from a hostel, beds rock hard and the spare blanket pure camel hair. The lights in the bathroom didn't work and the toilet wasn't secured to the floor and it later leaked because the maintenance man removed the gaffer tape and replaced it with plaster of Paris. We were told that we should expect this!! They did upgrade us to a superior room later.....the only superiority was that the TV was on the wall not the table!! Can't fault the staff Juan and Katerina they were brilliant. The food was very repetitive mainly pork based and burgers.Saving grace was we met some lovely people so thanks to Stephen, Beryl, Kath, Lynn, Joan and Ian for saving our holiday!!More

We spent a last minute all inclusive week here, the hotel is very basic, staff are friendly and helpful, the hotel is clean, rooms are cleaned daily apart from Sunday. Food is just ok however the breakfast is really good.
This hotel is in a good location, 5 mins from the marina, beach, resturants and a short bus ride from old ibiza town which is well worth a visit, the famous hippie market is just a short walk away from the hotel too.
We were slightly confused with the all inclusive take on alcholic drinks, a small charge had to be paid for certain spirits with a mixer, although not expensive and we are not heavy drinkers, all inclusive should mean all inclusive!More

Relaxing end of season break
We'd booked into this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed.
We'd emailed the hotel in advance to alert them that we would be arriving before 1pm and were told it wouldn't be a problem - in the end delayed flights meant that we didn't arrive til 2.55.
Check in was swift, we were given a paper wristband which is similar that you may find in a swimming pool and told if it got wet or tore off then go back to reception and get another. This was good as most AI hotels use plastic wristbands which you have to guard with your life! The receptionist told us that lunch was just closing but that we could order freshly cooked snacks from the bar and any questions we should go to reception and ask.
Our room was on the 3rd floor (room 348), this was on the road side of the hotel. Rooms with a pool view cost an extra EUR5pppn whilst those with a pool view, modern furnishings and a terrace cost EUR10pppn - these are the prices is paid for at the hotel and can be upgraded, presuming there are rooms available when you arrive. However the rooms on the road side get the sun in the afternoon/evening, whereas the pool rooms appear to only get the sun first thing in the morning.
The rooms are spacious with more than enough room for two, the furnishings are a little dated (the upgrade package even highlights the modernity of the EUR10 rooms) but to be honest who cares how old the wardrobe is if it does the job?! There is a dressing table and chair and two bedside tables. The beds are singles with comfortable mattresses. These are pushed together if a double is requested but the beds do naturally drift apart ever so slightly and the beds are still made as two singles. The bathroom is a little on the tight size if you were particularly big, but more than adequate for anyone else. The shower was great with hot water on demand at all times and more than sufficient power. On the balcony there was two chairs, a small table and an ashtray for those that want to smoke.
There is a TV in your room which has the three main UK channels plus from memory a couple of UK news channels, a selection of Spanish channels, an Italian and a German channel; so if you can't miss your favourite TV show whilst away then you'll be OK. There is a safe deposit in the room, we weren't sure if this was free or not, but we weren't too fussed either way.
Wi-fi is available but it costs extra and we already had bolt-ons for our phone so we didn't use it.
Primarily the room was spotless which is the main issue for us, there were the odd maintenance issue, one the bed lights didn't work and the shower head had a hole in it which spouted water off at a different angle but to be honest we weren't that bothered about it so didn't say anything - I suspect if we had have done it would have been resolved immediately.
Rooms are cleaned and beds made daily except on Sunday when there is no maid service. The rooms were cleaned well and fresh towels were provided, there were complimentary bathroom products provided when we arrived but these were never replaced, not sure if this is usual practice or whether they didn't bother because we'd taken our own anyway.
The communal areas were reasonably sized for when we were there although we got the impression that the hotel wasn't full - if the occupancy was higher than this could be more of a problem.
The bar area has seating for roughly 60 with the performance stage at the front of this area. A wide selection of local drinks are available on the AI package, although the great news is that the local beer is Estrella which was great. Bar service is available until midnight, although the staff seem relaxed about you having a few lined up at 11.45 which is excellent.
The outside seating area has room for roughly another 60 although you would struggle to watch the entertainment from a number of seats out here. This joins onto the pool area where there are a sizeable number of sun loungers available - we never saw a day when there weren't at least two dozen available; however the layout of the hotel does affect the suitability of some of these, certainly by mid afternoon I would imagine that most loungers would be in the shade of the hotel. The pool is not the largest I have seen by some distance but I only saw one person in there the entire week we were there so it's not really an issue - the pool is 2.8m deep at one end though so beware if you expect to touch the bottom! There is also a set of pool toilets and showers to save you having to go into the bar area in your swimwear!
The restaurant area is next to the bar area and has room for again about 60 people; although again we didn't struggle to get seated, but same caveat as above applies.
The food was excellent throughout our stay, there were a couple of dishes that reappeared in the week but there was sufficient variety as long as you're not a fussy eater. For those who like home comforts then fried breakfasts are available every morning including bacon, sausages, fried bread and black pudding! One thing I would add though is that sometimes the courses change mid-sitting; we arrived one night and pork chops were available when these ran out they were replaced by BBQ pork ribs, likewise the mushroom crepes were replaced by potatoes! Suffice to say we ate very well during our week!
The entertainment that was provided was very much for the older guests, a number of singers performed which would be your typical working men's club fare, some were better than others which is usually the case. On some of the nights that there were no singers then Juan stepped in to do his own entertainment, Bingo, Quizzes, Karaoke. If this isn't for you then go for a walk and see what else Es Canar has to offer.
Some people have said that this hotel is for older people, and whilst it is fair to say that the majority of the guests were over 50 (it is an adults only hotel) and exclusively British, the hotel is actually great for anyone who just wants a quiet relaxing break without being bombarded by Animation teams trying to get you to do water polo, aqua-aerobics or any other 'fun' activity that you don't really want to do! From what we could gather most of the guests were not on their first visit and we could see why.
There is a shop in the hotel selling some basic things, but there is also one over the road which we went to which seemed cheap, if somewhat like an episode of Open All Hours!
My final comment on the hotel itself has to be about the staff - they are by far and away the best staff I have ever encountered in an AI hotel - Juan, Katarina and Dorata between them manage all of the guests in the bar/reception area and from the smiles on their faces they love it! In all I think we only saw about a dozen people who worked in the entire hotel.
You will fail to not laugh at Juan at some point in your holiday, when he did the Karaoke he donned his sequinned jacket and sang when no-one else did, when it rained one day and it started to leak into the restaurant he went outside in a life jacket to sort it out, much to the amusement of the guests. What makes the guests enjoy this hotel even more is the way that the staff do what they can to make their guests holiday more memorable. We had no problem leaving a tip at the end of our holiday for the great way that the staff had helped us to enjoy our time away.
The hotel itself is located more or less at the end of the Es Canar 'strip', there are a number of restaurants and bars on this strip, most of the bars provide entertainment (mainly singers) of varying quality. The best bar we went to was the Montemar near the bus terminal which was selling bottles of varying beers on 2 for EUR4 and were playing three different football matches on every night of the Euro qualifiers.
The Es Canar beach is about 7/8 minutes walk from the hotel although it is quiet busy, the better beach is at Cala Nova which is a 20 minute walk from the hotel but is worth the walk.
All in all we really enjoyed our week at the Paraiso Beach, so much so that we're thinking of going back next year, so we'd have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing week away.More
We have just returned from a lovely relaxing break at Paraiso Beach. The staff are so friendly & helpful. Es Canar is a lovely small resort to visit & there is a bus station if you want to explore other places. The food is ok at the hotel but can be a bit repetitive but there was always something even for my picky husband .Entertainment was ok although not to everyones tastes (the singers). The rooms at the back are better as they get the sun on the balconies all afternoon while the ones overlooking the pool don't. All in all we had a lovely time, met some lovely people who return year after year , no noisey children running around .......would go back again .More
