The room provided had a damage in the main door which posed a security concern, hence my room was changed after a day. The new room provided had the safe locker in a locked condition. Although it was a simple fix for security, it took a day to unlock it. Wifi signal in the room was very bad. The water was not hot, it was barely warm. I checked out a day earlier than planned, the hotel refused to provide a checkout acknowledgement. I had to interact with several people at the reception, only one lady was helpful. Name available if needed.

This was the the ninth time I have stayed at Paradise, but the first since 2012. In many respects it has changed but the it wold be unfair to be too harsh as the pandemic will have had a significant affect, which is probably the reason the poolside bar is no longer open and many shops have closed. It was disappointing not to be able to buy snack food and a beer at lunchtime but there are many shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. In previous years we travelled in the European winter months and the hotel was catering for the European market, this no longer seems to be the case and standards have changed. On balance I would continue to stay at Rainbow but I feel that if you are looking for a beach side hotel up to European standards you may be disappointed. For example, they only had six (uncomfortable) sun loungers and they were the same ones that they had in 2003 - all others are in need of repair. There is also limited seating around the pool. They need to work to improve the offering. One positive change is the introduction of Laguna Bay beach bar on site in the evenings which gave the place some atmosphere.
