We have just returned 2 days ago from this wonderful small all inclusive hotel and we loved the place from the minute we walked in to the minute we left.
I would highly recommend booking here and I would ignore the highly critical review that was posted recently.
We were here when this lady was and yes she is entitled to her opinion, however myself and my husband do think this is uncalled for and I would hate for this to put other people off from staying here, so I am writing this review to reassure anybody who has booked and also to give the Paraiso Beach the credit it deserves.
I researched everywhere for a small adults only all inclusive hotel and this hotel was one of the cheapest that I found, with a good location and that looked and is really lovely and spotlessly clean - this is exactly what we got.
There certainly is not a cockroach or cleanliness problem here. The cleaning staff worked so hard cleaning morning noon and night and the place is cleaned to a very good standard.
There is a wide selection of all inclusive drinks that taste absolutely fine and is supplied from 11am-12am!
The food I honestly thought was very tasty, varied and actually much better than the one night we did eat out when we were on a trip.
Yes there was pork, but there was also chicken, beef, lamb, liver, ribs, sword fish, salmon, prawns, muscles, tuna, paella, pasta, potatoes, chips, wedges, salads, vegetables, lasagne, burgers, soups - the list goes on! Each night I was spoilt for choice by the selection of what to eat and was always pleased with my choice.
The deserts were fab too, fruit, cakes, jellies, custard, ice cream - just loads!
The breakfast was also tasty and plentiful. You could have cereal, fruit, yoghurt, pastries, a full English breakfast - what more could you ask for?
I tried everything over the 2 weeks and I wasn't disappointed at all.
I always looked forward to the lunch too. Admittedly it is a bit fresher the earlier you go, but I loved it whether I went at 11 or 5.30!
Here you had a choice of sliced meats, cheese, fish and salads if you wanted to make up your own sandwich or salad. Or there was always burgers (delicious), chips, vegetable stir frys, pasta and rice and a few other options.
There was also cake and fruit from about 12-5.30 ontop of all this and if that isn't enough than the freezer by the bar has a constant supply of ice cream!
This was above and beyond what we expected and this is only some if the food, so I am sure even the most fussy eater could find something everyday and if they couldn't then I honestly think they wouldn't be happy in any all inclusive hotel and would probably be a night mare to go to a restaurant!
The entertainment was varried over the 2 weeks we were there. My favourites was Danny murphy, Harry James, Joanne jollie and him and me. Each of these play in all of the 5 star hotels nearby and even in the likes of the very popular Charlie's bar, we really enjoyed them - even bought a cd or 2!
The quiz night went down well and Juan the adorably lovely Bar man tried so hard in the karaoke even singing himself if nobody wanted to get up! He was so funny.
There was only a small slot of entertainment in the day which was the cocktail making or every now and again a Scubba diving lesson, but we liked the fact that you could chill and not be harassed all day. If we did want to be, then we would have booked a hotel that wasn't adults only!
There is a tv in the reception which you can catch up on soaps and sports and day time telly to make you feel at home if you wish!
The pool area actually wouldn't be a problem at all if people didn't selfishly leave the towels on all day long without using them. However I did always manage to get one especially after 2-3 when people started moving their towels to go out etc.
I did speak to the rep Jamie who was very helpful and he said that they have bought the bar next door so they will expanding the sunbathing area.
The pool was nice, not the cleanest I've ever been in but certainly not dirty or enough to put me off going in. The area around the pool is great with lots of tables and chairs and I thought it was a nice touch when havvi the young bar man came round everyday with fresh fruit.
Our bedroom and bathroom was spotless. And towels changed daily and beds always clean. The room size was average to what we have stayed in over the years and the bathroom was fine with a good shower.
We didn't have a fridge in the room, but we didn't need one - you have food and water on supply from 8am - 12am so u really do not need one.
The aircon and tv remote control are free, you just leave a 10euro deposit for each which is returned when you check out.
I'm on holiday so didn't need the wifi, but I did email home once or twice on the computer in reception which cost 1 euro for 10 mins.
We didn't feel feel the need to use the safe, so we didn't spend a penny when we checked in, therefore please don't worry about the comment about spending 100 euro before you even check in!
There is a mixed age group at the hotel ranging from about 17-70. I'm 33 and never felt out of place at all, it was great not having kids around the pool and very relaxing.
In all I think this was a very good value holiday compared to what we have spent on self catering holidays in the past and an excellent choice for our first all inclusive.
I thought I would get bored eating and drinking in the same restaurant for 2 weeks but I did enjoy the surprise each day of what we were getting and helping yourself to as much of whatever you liked - we must have saved a fortune!
We did get out and about, walking to and from Santa eualia, along the coast and around the town. We also got the bus around the island and visited Ibiza town.
We had drinks in a few bars in Es Cana and enjoyed even more entertainment from other bars and enjoyed acts like the drifters, freddy mercury, Bon jovi and loads more.
It is a very English resort and I don't normally like that, but it was a refreshing change. As much as I like Es Cana I don't think I would return, however if I could pick up Paraiso beach & their hard working cheerful staff and take them to my next holiday destination then I would do so in a flash!
Therefore if you have booked to go here please don't worry and take any negative reviews with a pinch of salt - some people do just like to moan as much as they will never admit it!
