This is a fabulous hotel for families, everything you need under 1 roof. Ignore the negative reviews and go and enjoy all this hotel has to offer. Food/drink aplenty. We had a fantastic time. Stayed at Paradise Island from the 3rd of March to the 10th. Check-in was fast and efficient staff on reception were very professional and also very nice explaining all the information we needed regarding where our room was etc. The room we had 222 was very clean, modern and provided all you needed to sleep, shower, chill your drinks in the fridge provided and make tea/coffee. We did not see 1 ant in our room but our neighbours opposite did so they called reception and they sent a member of staff to clean them away using some special cleaning liquid( how easy is that to dial 2 numbers to reception)The pools were lovely and many people enjoyed themselves every day swimming and playing with inflatables. The water park is just a min walk at the end of the complex as we walked to see it, it is fabulous, nothing rusty here, sun beds galore and you can get soft drinks and water using your wristband, no alcohol for obvious reasons as 1 of those slides is very high. We had no issues with food at all, so much choice and we tried lots of it. The pool bar served food from morning until late afternoon so if you missed a meal you could always get a snack( we did this on one or 2 occasions and were happy with the choices )The free bus to the beach is great always on time and made such a difference as this Hotel is a little out of the way. You can also use the Sister hotel to eat dring and watch the entertainment if you don't want to walk ( 15 mins) take the free bus and stay on when you get to the beach and then the driver will pull in to the Playa Blanca on the way back to pick up people going to Paradise Island to use the facilities there. I loved the Amstel beer and the Cava and the ability to pull your own beer at the pool bar. You were allowed 4 drinks per person on an evening at the bar in the lobby and the entertainment bar. This hotel provides everything you need for a great family holiday.. IGNORE THE NEGATIVE PEOPLE AND GO SEE FOR YOUR SELF.

Our family 2 adults and 2 boys (8 yrs 3yrs) stayed here in april 2018, it was defo a 3 star. To start with our apartment was damp and the paint on the walls in bedroom were bubbling and flaking, the resturant was ok bit ipdating needed on food prep area, rusting cabinets behind the serving area, wild birds are allowed to fly sround the resturant eating area and serving area eating bread and cakes on display, and pooping on tanles, the staff every morning open little windows so the birds can come in and fly around.the staff are mostly ok apart from young lad on outside bar who thinks its ok to give young prtty mums with children slush puppys for their children but then when me and my lityle boy was next inline decline him having the same slushy saying they are not all inclusive and we have to pay, he argued with me for 3minutes about it, pretending not to understand what i was saying to him. The food was average food, not good not bad, the hotels is not in walking distance of anything so you either have to get a bus or taxi to get anywhere,pools were good my boys enjoyed them.

we had a fantastic time and we are puzzled at some of the other reviews. place was spotless, restaurants had plenty of choice, not exactly high end cuisine,more good pub food, but always a different choice, deserts are a bit crappy, they are a bit like pound shop cakes. pools and water park fab, lifeguards really strict which was good as we could relax and know kids were safe. there was a few doughballs ignoring the height restrictions and getting grumpy with lifeguards, i guess they could not read the signs stating height restrictions or understand the need for the park to keep people safe. Entertainment was good ,but a bit disorganized and a few times had ignorant people standing up in front of us and we had to ask them to sit down or move. the resort as a whole is stunning, the garden areas between the apartments are beautiful and exotic. rooms are nice and clean, cleaners in every day except wed, and will change towels every day if you want, bedding changed once a week, but beds made and floors/bathroom cleaned daily. shower was always hot and high power. Lager and cava good, wine drinkable, soft drinks ok, spirits like turps though, but plenty of other people seem to be enjoying them. we found all staff friendly and helpful. shuttle bus to sea front ideal and keeps to time. rep really helpful from thomas cook. we hired a car from the outlet in reception ( elizabeth rentacar) who were cheaper than the avis deals recommended by Thomas Cook, and was easy to sort and drop off in hotel. there was the usual mix of people who like to claim sun beds at 7 am, and use them for an hour after lunch, but if you asked the on duty poolside staff to find you a bed, they would clear the sunbeds that these sort of selfish people had parked up but were using just for a few hours. never experienced any badly drunk folk, water park bars did not serve booze, which was good as it kept the nice people who just like to get smashed at the main poolside bar and the water park was quieter than you would expect as obviously some people cannot cope without booze. Free wifi in lobby area is useless, i paid for it for the day, it was also poor, was quicker on 3g. it is a good 20 min walk to nearest seafront, and about 35 min walk into main town center. shop on site is pricey. playa blanca is a great town to stay in, resort is at the far end of resort though. we hired a car , for two days was £70 quid and paid £35, for entry into volcano park, which for a family of four was cheaper than deal Thomas cooks were offering for a half day excursion, then used the car to get to east end of play blanca to get to footpath to access papagayo beaches which are really nice, playa dorrado in main town very nice also as a beach, and found a number of lovely restaurants along sea front in main town area. at times pool side seemed to get busy and speaking to some people, quite a few people had come up from the sister hotel to use water park, i only found out on last day we could go to other HL hotels, one family went to the other hotel daily as they had sussed, it was basically the same, but pool side was quieter. animation team, who provided most of the daytime entertainment were a lot of fun.

We have just returned from our first family holiday (3/5/18-10/5/18) with a 1, 4 and 6 year old. After reading reviews I was anxious about staying but it exceeded our expectations. Apartment was cleaned thoroughly every day which was great. Food was great, having fussy eaters there was something for everyone. A bit repetitive but a good quality. The kids club was fantastic. Having an autistic daughter I have to say a massive thanks to Ellie and Luke who helped encourage her to attend and found common ground with her (horses). The entertainment at night was great and very kids focused, the animation team and the Thomas Cook kids club staff were exceptional. A big thanks also to Jade who had just started, my 4year old was injured accidentally by another child in the baby pool with a cut to her face and Jade escorted us for first aid and logged it and even followed up with us each day afterwards to check on her. The pools were cold but what do you expect? It didn’t put any of mine off spending hours in the each day. The water park was also a massive hit and something for all ages of child. We met some lovely families whilst on holidays which resulted in a joint visit to El Rancho Texas enjoyed by all us parents and kids. We’re already priced for going back next year. Tips if you are going: . Ask reception for a mattress topper . Hire foam mattresses for sun loungers . Buy plastic pint glasses in the on-site shop . Bring paracetamol as the nearest chemist is in town

The worst Hotel I’ve stayed in and very disappointed with Thomas Cook (I always use Thomas Cook as had really good holidays) However this is most definitely not a 4star Hotel!! This was a 50th birthday gift for me and my sons 21st rolled into a Christmas holiday and it was awful!!! Wish I’d asked to move Hotel. We ended up eating out 4 nights out of 7 food not good at all!! The main restaurant a bullbait!! Trying to get a table especially with cutlery a nightmare! Cleanliness of the hotel needs addressing ASAP overall was a complete letdown and disgusting for how much we paid for the week and would have put review on sooner but been ill since we returned sorry.
