give it a go!
We went here 22nd July 2012 with 6 adults and a baby of one year old for 2 weeks. The appartments are ok, they were clean and we didnt stay in them apart from sleeping so it wasnt a problem for us. The baby pool was fantastic its a foot deep and with having a little boy who can walk he had a fantastic time and i new he was safe when we were playing in it. The big pool was cold but arent they always?!?
A lot of people went down to the beach etc in the day so it was always dead which was fantastic as I hate to many people around us! so for that it was bliss.
The location is up hill! we had a wheelchair and luckily i have a very fit husband. there is a shuttle bus for in the day which is free so you cant complain really and the taxis were cheap enough but we like a walk in an evening so getting a taxi we didnt want to do!
they had evening entertainment but we never saw that. but the people watching it seemed to enjoy it from what we heard.
The only thinkg which we didnt mind but some people might is it is very windy so the sun was lovely and with the wind it was a nice temp and you never felt sweaty but i personally wouldnt go back because of the wind & the fact its to far up the hill, sometimes it was just too much! If you want a cheap holiday its good enough if it was in a different location i would go back in a heartbeat.

Come and join the club!
After 3 very happy winter sun holidays the past 3 years with Thomas Cook at Plaza Palmeras, we decided to try a different apartment hotel this time, and went for the Playa Club!
It's a typically low-level complex of apartments, situated in a perfect position literally a few yards from the sea-front strip, and with easy access to the beach, restaurants and bars of Puerto del Carmen.
The complex has a heated pool (yay!), its own Spa, and a quality restaurant too which is also accessible to passers by.
The apartments themselves have everything you need for your stay, although you have to pay a little extra to access the UK TV channels. There are phones in the room too linked to reception should you need any assistance.
I liked the night-time shutters on the bedroom windows too - a nice touch.
The rooms around the pool are lovely - if you are a bit further away, you do feel a bit sidelined (and will have difficulty with Wi-Fi access too), but you have the option to upgrade or downgrade to a poolside room when you book, depending upon your pocket.
The complex itself is rather sprawling too - new guests are given a map to find the way to their room! But you soon get the hang of it, and it's only a minor detail.
The other thing is that guests are allowed to leave the dreaded 'towels on empty sunbeds' unchecked at all times - one selfish couple while we were there bagged the best two sunbeds and left their towels permanently on there, overnight it seems! I think a polite sign requesting guests to refrain from this (as in other hotels) might be a good idea.
Desk staff are very friendly and helpful, there's internet access by coin-op in reception too, and a postbox.
All in all, a very enjoyable stay, and I have a feeling we will be back! :-)

I went to the paradise island hotel with my brother an young family. The water park was great. Weather warmer than uk. I thought Lanzarote and there volcanic fields of black and white houses was beautiful. The beach was about a mile away but there was regular free busses. There was a market on Saturday and Wednesday which had lots of trinkets. There was a lot of things that were cheaper. Probably excellent copies but with the area being vat free and not in the eu. You do benefit from cheaper prices. I would go again and to the same hotel.

the rooms were basic but pretty much as expected. Could have had more cooking utensils, given that it was a self catering apartment. staff very friendly and helpful throughout. Poolside inadequate not enough sun loungers or parasols and the usual towels at dawn. Too far away from local shops not that there was many there to start with.

Paradise should not be in the hotel name
Just back from what was my christmas present. Had originally booked to stay in Lanzarote Paradise for 7 nights and we managed 4 nights and had to be moved to another hotel. Never seen anything worse in all my life. The room was so unclean, bed squeaked eveytime you moved, floors were really uneven, toaster didnt work. Staff at front desk were very unhelpful. I would not recommend this hotel at all. Better off going all inclusive in a four star as we had to pay extra to be moved.

i love lanzarote paradise club
this is a great place for families with young and older children, great service from the people the women that run the volcano pub with jimmy , we will miss them all we made new friends old ones and young ones and had great fun , we had been there before so we knew our way around , but if you pop to the front desk and ask for a taxi it costs you about 2,80 to be dropped into the town . i can honestly say it was better than the first time, thanks thomas cook , but there was no GYM it would do well with a gym

Good value holiday.
My wife and I stayed in the Palm Bay Studios in Pefkos for 1 week commencing 15th June 2012. We had read many reviews prior to travelling, some good, some very poor. In our opinion, these studios although in need of re decoration, are sublimely positioned 30 meters from the beach and a short, pleasant stroll from the town with all the shops and nightlife needed for an easy going or moderately lively time. The restaurant in the Palm Bay serves excellent food at reasonable prices. We would heartily reccommend a stay here.
