This place gives you 4 pools to choose between – and it’s right on the beach, too.
This hotel does well for pools – there are 3 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.
Designed for 3 to 11 year olds, Thomson Kids’ Club offers 2 hours of activities, 5 or 6 days a week. And that includes at least 3 evenings. It’s split into sections, with Tots for 3 to 5 year olds, Team for 6 to 8s, and Tribe for 9 to 11s. Best of all, most kids’ clubs activities are completely free. And outside of peak season, there are parent and toddler sessions 3 days a week, too. For your peace of mind, all Thomson Kids’ Club staff have advance DBS checks and hold NVQ Level 2 childcare qualifications. They’re First Aid trained, and there’ll be at least 2 of them on duty at all times.
As a family of seven from the ages of 6 to 64 we had a fantastic holiday Juan is a really great bar person in the poolside bar in the quiet pool, Antonia our cleaner was absolutely fantastic, towels and bedding changed every other day she was always so happy. Rooms we're clean and comfortable, could have done with some tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms though. Food was good could have being a bit hotter though, plenty of choice. Our granddaughter enjoyed the Goldie Club so much she didn't want to come home. The animation team deserve medals they worked their socks off from 10am until 11pm they never stopped, always on the go and so friendly and not pushy if you didn't want to join in. We went all inclusive so it was a shame the snack bar didn't do all inclusive all day, only when the restaurant was closed and some days you don't want a full lunch just a snack. Just a few bad points but all in all we still had a fantastic time so much so that we hadn't been back a week when we re-booked to go same time next year, am so looking forward to it 2 weeks of being spoilt.More

lovely hotel, great food even for a fussy eater like me. a 2 minute walk away to the beach which was absolutely breathtaking with white sands and crystal clear water. friendly staff the hotel was spotless. at 500 all inclusive for a week a good bargain. got a lot more than we bargained for!More
check in was smooth.
Rooms were clean, had a good sized balcony with sea, pool and mountain view, comfortable beds, free toiletries & good shower.There was a small fridge but no tea and coffee facilities in the room. We could only find 1 English channel on the tv which was a news channel but this didn't bother us too much as we were out most of the time. The room was cleaned everyday with fresh towels if we wanted them. Rooms could do with a little updating but this is more a personnel preference. Hotel has a good indoor pool, arcade games, vending machines etc. The outdoor pool was very cold so we didn't use it much, plenty of sunbeds.
We went full board and were pleased to find that we got free tea/coffee/ juice and cava at breakfast. The food was really good. There was lots of choice with different fresh meat and fish been grilled by a chef everyday for lunch & dinner. You could also get fresh pancakes and omelettes for breakfast. There were at times a small que for food but this wasn't anything major! We didn't upgrade to all-inclusive as we only had a few drinks in the evening at the hotel and a few at lunch, we found these a good price with soft drinks and hot drinks all under 2 euros. If you do upgrade to all inclusive you still have to pay for some things, the menu just lists a cheaper price (part of the reason we didn't upgrade)
We spent most of our time in the Habana bar as it has a more relaxed atmosphere and a live singer. We watched some entertainment in the main bar which wasn't bad. We found the quizzes fun.
All the staff at the hotel were really nice - especially Monika in the restaurant.
Pineda de Mar is a nice place - there are a few bars and restaurants, shops & beach bars (Moloko is really good). The beach is shingle but is still nice. 10 - 15 minutes walk away is Callea which is a huge place with lots of shops, bars, fast food, restaurants etc. We caught the train to Barcelona for 9.80 euros return, its a nice train journey along the coast and worth the money.
Overall we had a really nice holiday and would return.More

Another great holiday
We have been here a few times and always have a lovely holiday all staff helpful and polite. Keli always helps with any problems as does all the staff. Food okay but could be warmer at breakfast but the same where ever you stay.we always have rooms overlooking the quiet pool with a great view. Our only gripe this time was our room cleaner, she always cleaned well but would leave us watered down bottles of shampoo and even left us a nearly empty bottle of someone elses herbal essence and took my bath sponge, just silly things but did not spoil anything. I am a Golden club member and always enjoy the little presant of sweets for each room they leave for you. Shall be back another year.More
holiday at the Golden Taurus Pineda de Mar
The whole hotel complex was kept impeccably clean at all times. The fresh food, such as fruit, were excellent, as was the choice. There was always a selection of food for every meal, including some cooked while you watched. That was always lovely. Rooms all had balconies, ours overlooking the pools and the beach, and the soundproofing within the rooms was very good. The entertainment was varied and enjoyable
The only thing which we thought was not excellent, was some of the veg was overdone, probably because they were sitting in a hot tray.l
Would definitely stay there again, E|xcellent value for moneyMore
