“You get what you pay for.”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

I've just come back from my hen-do with 8 mates, we went all inclusive Friday to Monday. I was a little nervous about what it would be like having read previous reviews however I was pleasantly surprised.
The food was basic but edible, I only saw one pork chop and the strawberry and chocolate mousses when down a storm!!
Rooms were clean and although there wasn't air con it was bearable.
There were a few cockroaches but never in our room.
All in all we had a great time and the hotel suited our needs for the time we were there.

Me and my partner stayed here all inclusive, i dont know where to begin, rooms r filthy we had to actually ring reception to get our room cleaned and wen they came to clean it, it was a 2 minute job, no floors swept or mopped, i got out the shower and walked to the bedroom and my feet were black rotton! The part we were staying over the road was more for the self catering having to cross the road for meals and drinks, also the pool bar was neva open where we were and i dont know why cos it was quite a nice area! Food was appauling, if you like pork, fish and chips this is ideal, bork!!! We had 4 meals in and spent most of our all inclusive holiday eating out which took up most of our spending money, all inclusive snacks are shocking and unhygenic, in the side of the bar in a grotty fridge was ham and cheese sanwiches which u can toast but the grill neva really cooked them!! That was it for snacks, icecreams were no choice and u had to pay for the good ones and the decent snacks lyk burgers piZZAS ect. Our bed sheets wer only changed once while staying, no entertainment or live music, nothing to entertain children, we are really glad we neva brought our 2 young toddlers cos i would av been in tears and got on the next flight home! Absolute appauling and the place wants closing down, all it is good for is boozing teenagers who aint bothered about staying in filth and the place really wants updating, i cud go on but it gets me mad talking about it. Also while there 2 girls who werw staying therw go broken into in the 2nd dat they were there, please take my advice and dont stay here!!!!!!!!!!

I am writing this on behalf of a young relative stayed here and we went to visit twice. What an awful place! OK, if what you are used to is cheap and nasty. The rooms were appalling. Tiny with archaic hot plate which took them ages to find out how to turn it on Freezer broken and water leaked all over room. Pool are sparse with no character as was the rest of the complex.Tiny rooms with beds set into what looked like a fitted wardrobe frame. So hot they couldn't sleep. Worst place I've seen in many years.

Room Tip: Don't think there ARE any but the best looked as if they faced pool.

Me and my girlfriend went to these apartments the 2nd week in may,fairly basic inside,but not too bad,only thing missing was a microwave,but you can live without it.The balcony was massive,and a nice suntrap late afternoon/early evening.Its quite a big sprawling complex,with a few different blocks across the road from each other,so dont assume the your holiday companys photo will be actually be where your staying,because it may not be.The main block i stayed in has 2 pools,both with bars,but 1 was closed,maybe only open high season.There is also a buffet restaraunt on site,open for bfast dnner and evmeal.The main pool bar also serves snacks such as burgers and sarnies.The complex is in a great location,only a few hundred metres from the beach and there is bars and eating places everywhere.There are loads of decent places to eat,the playboy opposite,a nice 3 course meal for 10 euros each,but there are some who do it for 8 euros.Check out snappys up the road who do great brit food and they even do cooked breakfasts til 4.30pm(handy if your having a lie in after a rough nite).Avoid the bar miami opposite,ran by a local lady who has an attitude,and attracts some local weirdos.For young people,its only about a 5-10 min walk to the main nightlife in the veronicas/starco area,though the bar touts here can become quite irritating.The main downside to these apartments is no aircon,but you can hire a fan(recomended,dont leave your patio doors open,the mossies will bite lumps out of you).The reception staff were very nice and polite.

Dear Lee, Thank you very much for your review, which certainly can be helpful for a lot of other guests. We are glad to know that you enjoyed your stay with us. Obviously, the Paraíso del Sol is only a 2 star property and according to Spanish Law, this category must not offer air conditioning. However, as you well say, guests have the possibility to rent a fan at the reception desk. As for the microwave, again being a 2 key property the kitchenettes do not include microwave, nevertheless, we take your comments into consideration to see whether in the future we may include this device in our rental lists. We trust to see you again either at Paraíso del Sol or at any of our other Coral Hotels properties. Actually, it would be a real pleasure for us if you would decide to stay with us again.

This was booked as a last minute girly holiday, there was four of us and we all hand a fantastic time here.
I agree with some other comments if you love pork and chips, oh and also fish, you will love the buffet food.The stag party of 30 Geordies were there while we were and we have to say they actually made the holiday better, as what could have been boring just lazing around the poolside (as there is nothing else to do through the day here except drink) turned the day into loud, amusing, outrageousness! ha!
This is definitely a holiday for young people out for a laugh and loving the booze, although at one point the bar did run out of blue lagoon cocktails! But the hotel is a 5 minute walk to the beach and Veronicas strip with Tramps and Linikers not too far either so a really good location.
Would definitely go back on another girly holiday but wouldn't take children here!

Dear Emma, Just to say thank you for taking your time in writing your review on your stay at Paraiso del Sol. We are happy to know that you enjoyed thoroughly your holiday with your friends and that you will return. By the way, just to point out that the Paraíso del Sol is quite a large property, which is divided in several parts, one of them is ideal for families, because it´s a tranquil area with separate pool, with children pool as well as playground. Therefore, the Paraíso del Sol is suitable for families and as well as for younger guests, who are travelling together with friends like yourself. It certainly will be a pleasure for us to welcome you and your friends again when you next plan to come to Tenerife.

So I have been before and knew what I was expecting. You get what you pay for. But you know what this place is with more. Ok its not all singing and dancing but its great in its own way. The staff are all lovely, the hotel manager is great he is always around and never to busy if u want to speak to him.
The hotel is in a perfect spot, the food does have the occasional bad nite but even I can't get it right every time. There is not to much noise but if u had kids u wouldn't feel like they had to keep quiet. Sounds like I missed out on the 30 male stag do..... Not really much I would change about the place.... Maybe afternoon games if enough people are interested. Oh and the option to have a drink with your evening meal.... Not sure how that works.
Overall Benito does a great job running the place and all of his staff do him proud.

We are very happy to hear that our staff and above all our manager are doing a good job and seem to succeed in providing the best possible holiday to our guests. We certainly will take into accounts your suggestion about the option to offer a drink with the evening meal.
