I have just come back from a week’s holiday in Los Christianos. Tenerife with my 13 year old daughter. We stayed for 1 week at the Paradise Park Resort and Spa Hotel (4 Star).
I am a well travelled tourist and usually always stay in 4 or 5 star accommodation (days of backpacking well behind me!).
The first thing to note about the Paradise Park Resort and Spa hotel in Los Christianos is that it is really a 3 star venue in comparison with European standards however it is a friendly one and it is certainly not a ‘Resort’ hotel. It does have pools but these are cramped and small.
The Location - Paradise Park Resort and Spa
Towards the top of a fairly steep hill about 15 minutes walk directly down the hill to the beach, you have to cross several main roads and junctions to get down there, if you are on the mature and unfit
side of life and you are looking for a hotel within easy reach of the beach this is not for you, (instead try Cleopatra’s Palace - directly on a beautiful beach between Los Christianos and Las Americas). Good news are taxis are plenty and fairly cheap (4-5 euros from the hotel to Las Americas). The paradise park is right next to a large multi-level shopping centre.
The Room - (Classic Family Room)
As a dad with a nearly 14yr old I opted for the Classic Family room as I slept in the bedroom and my daughter slept on the roomy sofa-bed in the lounge/kitchenette area. That way she couldn’t hear my snoring! Although at first the hotel put me in premium twin room I had to go back to the reception and state what I ordered and they quickly rectified this with the proper room I booked. The classic family room was a 3-star quality but was roomy, clean and very reasonable.
The staff at the Paradise Park Resort and Spa are brilliant, they are always friendly and ready to help in any way, the staff really make the hotel in my opinion and outshine some of the poorer points.
The entertainment was average, usual daytime activities taking up the pool area or evening shows starting at 9 for the kids and 9.45 for the adults. Shows lat 45m minutes and then the disco is from 10.45 to 11pm. Not of it was my cup of tea really and my 13 year old daughter was definitely not impressed an bored out of her brains. So I did try a few nights out in Las Americas and booked in the ‘Evolucion’ show which is rated No1 on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint, brilliant night out and very powerful expert performance.
if you pay for B&B, Half Board or even Full Board you will be charged for all your drinks all the time even at meals - only ALL INCLUSIVE get their drinks free. I apid for full board and did not understand the difference. My mistake not the hotels.
The very best beaches to visit are Del Duque and Playa Del Carmen (all about 4-5 euros in a taxi) these are the two best beaches for yellowish sand, good restaurants and lots of fun. The beaches in Los Christianos consist of a port which has all petrol from the large boats and a dark sand one next door. I would suggest not wasting your time as I did and go straight for the best ones.
All in all I was reasonably satisfied with the Paradise Park Resort & Spa hotel in Los Christianos, not impressed but reasonably satisfied. Its not a howler that would appear on ‘when vacations attack’ buts not a luxury one either.
