Description: At El Paraiso Hotel we take great pride in the untouched nature of Tulum. We have therefore created a small hotel in harmony with nature without waiving the comfort of modern living.Our vast pristine white sandy beach and the calm crystal-clear waters invite to stress free beach days, water activities and romantic walks along the shore line. Cool off with a refreshing young coconut picked from one of our innumerable palm trees, take up diving or kite surfing, or just be, and let all your worries disappear while you relax in the shade of an umbrella.Explore the natural wonders and archeological sites of Tulum. One of the best preserved Mayan ruin is just around the corner from El Paraiso Hotel. The ruins set at the top of lime stone cliffs overlooking the waters offer visitors spectacular views.The Sian Kaan Biosphere, cenotes and caves hidden deep within the jungle, as well as national parks can all be found within short distance from our hotel. Add to this the second largest Reef in the world just off shore and the abundant marine life of the Caribbean, which has made Tulum and important and extraordinary location for all types of water sports.After a day at the beach or discovering the surrounding areas, El Paraiso Hotel is a place to relax, unwind and disconnect from the busy days of the normal life. Pamper yourself to a massage from our Spa services right on the beach with the waves of the ocean as the only sound, or revive the ancient Mayan tradition of worshipping the sunset joining us in our sunset yoga on the beach.Tulum is the perfect destination for discovering and enjoying all the magic of Riviera Maya.

We arrived early (before lunch time) after visiting the Tulum ruins. It's an easy walk along the beach, accessed by the beach road at the South exit of the ruins. This was good because we had our choice of various different kinds of chairs or cabanas. We could have just had lunch, but because we were so early, but we decided to rent cabanas and hang out until lunch time. The cabana we rented was a nice cushy cabana (the kind with a roof for shade) and it came with a table and chairs too. This cost $250 pesos for the day with no minimum on food or drink. We asked what options they had available and they politely showed us all the different options, one of which was just a lounger for $100 pesos per day. Or you could just eat at a table too. There were other options but I won't list all here. Anyway, after getting settled in our cabanas ( we rented two side by side because there were 4 of us) our friendly waiter came by often to take care of us with drinks or food. At lunch time we ordered the ceviche, the whole fried fish, chips & guac. We drank their iced tea and margaritas. Everything was really, really good, no complaints. The beach is very pretty! Yes, the beach club does get crowded. It's not the place for peace and quiet. But we were expecting this so it didn't bother us. There was music playing but it wasn't that loud so it didn't bother us either. With the cabana they gave you a pass for the restrooms. There are taxis available at the exit, so that was an easy way to get back to our hotel. Not sure about other food items, there are some bad reviews on here, but we didn't find that to be the case. We really enjoyed our day here!

Where there for lunch with family and friends. All 5 dishes we ordered were very bland. Grilled fish tacos were tasteless, Seafood Linguine was not good, the Nachos were horrible.

We discovered Playa Paraiso by accident and we’re glad we did. We had been kicking it at a public beach south of PP, sitting on crappy plastic chairs, luke warm beer in hand and no nibbles. We decided to take a stroll up the beach and BAM we found PP. The food was delicious, the drinks were excellent, but I have to admit the service was sort of slow.

We stopped here, the first time after 6 years and what a change and not for the better. The beach is packed and the quaint beach bar is gone. Table and chairs cost $200 pesos for the day with a waiter which would be great if you could get his attention. We ordered fish tacos which consisted of a few pieces of batter and I think there was fish in them with shredded cabbage. The beers are $50 peso and when the waiter went missing I went into the bar to get my own. The manager was not happy I had to chase my own drinks down and did not offer an apology. You do get free parking and access to the washroom with your meal/chair rental. The beach is so beautiful but packed now....Sigh....not worth coming here.

The food is very tasty and has a good price-quality relationship. The service is acceptable and the menu will surely bring satisfaction to the most hesitant ones.
The atmosphere is cool and charming, by the beach.
