This place gives you four pools to choose between – and it’s right on the beach, too.
This hotel does well for pools – there are three good-sized outdoor ones, and they have tropical features like wooden bridges and waterfalls. On the dining front, there are theme nights at the buffet place.
The hotel overlooks Pineda de Mar’s pretty sand-and-shingle beach. And even though you’re in a quiet spot, it’s still just a 10-minute walk to the town’s shops and restaurants.

Great for kids
Just back from two weeks holiday. I was a bit unsure what to expect having read some of the reviews on here but to be honest this hotel was great. Loads of pool space for everyone, enough sunbeds for everyone but to be honest could have done with a bit more sun umbrellas as it was extremely hot. However to be fair I believe we were there in the middle of a heat wave and even the staff hadn't known temperatures like it. Wifi only available in the lobby which wasnt too much of a problem. Always loads of food available and free drinks to 11pm on all inclusive. did find the need to sign for every round ordered a bit strange bit didn't put us off. Definitely one to visit if you have kids loads for them to do and they cant get board.More

Our first family holiday to the Taurus
Stayed 2 weeks at the Taurus Hotel, June this year. We are a family of 2 children, aged 1 & 4yrs. What a wonderful hotel, simply outstanding. We had an simply amazing holiday. Taurus is in an excellent location, right opposite the beach. Rooms were clean, and even with a cot in the room plenty of space. Added bonus that you have a fridge in the room too. Food, was tasty too, the man who did my omlette everyday, was brill. The staff work so hard in their, as it can get very busy. My 4yr old loved having the separate childrens choice bar, and the chocolate fountain was a big hit too. We booked half board, but when we got to the hotel worked out better going all inc. Kelli, the Guest Services Manager, I think is the jewel to the hotel. An EX-Thomson Rep (just like myself)' she will solve any problems you have if any! She is from the UK and a Mummy too, so understands any issues, she arranged for a bed guard for us - FOC! The hotel has 2 kids clubs - Thomson and the hotel. Both are great, my child loved both. He especially loved Lauren & Sarah. They have such a unique way to have fun with the kids. Lots of fun activities. The Thomson Reps, I feel need to do more PR, especially around the pool. Presence is everything, rather than just sitting behind a desk! If you have any inflatables that require air, go to the man at the sports hut, and he will do for you. The zoo at the hotel, is such a nice touch, small enough to have a wonder around after you have been on the play area. Baby changing facilities are required for the men, maybe added into the disabled toilet Downstairs. Also I think around the pool area, a board with all the entertainment details on. Ref entertainment - WOW! What a team, Gege is such a lovely bloke, and has a team that work so hard. The shows on a night were brill, I was shocked how GOOD the entertainment was. Gino and Anastsia, were very friendly and made my family feel included. I think Micheal really needs to work on his people skills, at times he came across very rude. One day even walked past me 3 times without hello. My favourite show, was when the Entertainement team did a Circus show, and included all the children in the hotel. My 4yr old was a Tiger, such a wonderful evening to watch them on stage. Was a lot of hard work with all the children, but Gerrald GEGE and his team did so well, I truly applause them. Keep up the good work! This is just my option.More

Good Family Holiday
We have just returned from a week at the Golden Taurus with 11 year old son. Although it was much bigger than expected, it was spotless, well-run and easy to get around. We had room 280 (overlooking the quiet pool), which was great - spacious, clean, and with a sea view. Getting a lounger by the quiet pool was easy, and had a nice atmosphere. Only went to the main bar once, as it was really loud and busy (and with very young children / babies who should have been in bed!). The Habana bar was much less busy and far nicer. We went half board; although food was plentiful, it wasn't of the greatest quality (although the pears in spiced syrup were the best I've tasted). Our main gripe was the fact that at dinner you have to pay for all drinks, even the most basic water. Can't understand why this is the case when you can have juice, water and even cava at breakfast. The station is only a 15 min walk away, and can be reached by the beach path too. The beach is lovely - much less developed than most, and is a beautiful backdrop to an evening stroll. Everything in the town is easily walkable too. Overall, a good, well situated hotel suitable for everyone - there is a good mix of busy and more peaceful areas to keep most people happy. Did a couple of Thomson excursions, but also took the train to Barcelona for a day. Ticket machine can be selected to English so is easy to use. More
