Playa Paraiso Holidays

Travel Agent's View

Travel Agents View an ideal place for a quiet relaxing holiday

livelier night-life of Play de las Americas is a 10 minute taxi ride away.

Located on the west coast of Tenerife, Playa Paraiso is ideal for families and couples seeking a relaxing holiday in a quiet location. This purpose built resort is still being developed so visitors may witness some construction work.

Playa Paraiso is an ideal base for those who wish to explore the island, car hire is reasonably priced and local buses offer services to nearby resorts.

The resort offers a few bars and restaurants with the main entertainment and night-life centred around hotel entertainment. For a greater variety and livelier night-life Play de las Americas is a 10 minute taxi ride away.

The small man made beach has golden sand and is fairly quiet, in the town centre there is a salt water swimming complex which is ideal for families. The nearby resort of Playa Fanabe has several beaches which are well worth a visit.

Transfer time from the resort to Tenerife South airport is approx 40 minutes.

Insider's View

Tenerife Insider Playa Paraíso has wall to wall sunshine, is pleasantly quiet and is on a good headland position with great views over to La Gomera

there's so much all inclusive here, restaurants in Playa Paraí­so are thin on the ground

I don't wish to be cruel but for a place whose name means 'Paradise Beach' there's no natural beach and it isn't exactly my idea of paradise. This is a purpose built resort which is centred around its hotels and it's a considerable distance away from the busier resorts of Costa Adeje.

Playa Paraíso has wall to wall sunshine, is pleasantly quiet and is on a good headland position with great views over to La Gomera. I'd say that if you're coming to Playa Paraí­so, you're really coming to the hotel rather than the place, but if you're looking for a resort, this wouldn't be my first choice. There's a tacky, run down feel to the shops and arcades, the sort of feel Playa de las Américas had before it got its face lift, but without the nightlife and 18-30s to go with it.

Because there's so much all inclusive here, restaurants in Playa Paraíso are thin on the ground and quite a few places are for rent or sale. There's still a lot of construction in the resort too with half built hotel complexes, but you're unlikely to hear much construction noise; when I've been there of late I haven't noticed any actual building going on.

On the up side, developers have obviously noticed the irony in the resorts name and have now created the little, golden sand beach of Playa de las Galgas which has a vaguely Greek feel to it and is virtually deserted. I love it. And the swimming pool complex of Lago Paraíso at the bottom of Avenida Adeje is really nice too, I like the secluded feel to its location and it's never too busy as most people stay around their hotel pool.

My advice? Be prepared to hire a car to get out and see some of Tenerife's beauty because you won't find it outside your hotel grounds here, despite the name.
