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.

Lovely June Holiday
This was a lovely hotel with very friendly, helpful staff. Rooms very cleaned to good standard. The food was good and well presented but maybe a little repetitive after a few days. The pools were excellent with plenty of sunbeds. Quick service at all bars. Good value holiday and so close to be beach!More

Perfect for location, food, service, amenities
Have stayed here a few times as we find the location really good for the beach (right on the beach), for trips to nearby towns including Barcelona, and the bars/cafes in Pineda. The food is great - always lots of choice, using fresh produce. The staff are really friendly and do a super job at keeping all us holiday-makers happy, plus always clean and tidy. Lots to do - three pools, poolside bars, lots for the kids by the entertainment team, shows each night - wow.More
Had a lovely week in the golden Taurus was brilliant for the kids in our group the room was nice and comfortable. Kids love the activities on offer, the food was ok as far as all inclusive need holidays go my only thoughts were that there was a little more variety offered and that the snacks offered on the all inclusive were at wider times as was only allowed snacks between 10-12 and 4-6 and then 10-11 in evening but not all snacks at these times evening was only cakes and pastries and 10-12 was continental breakfast snacks. Also a little longer on the drinks at night would have been great all inc finishes at 11 at night maybe 12 would have been better.!also we arrived at 10.30 in the evening and they wouldn't give us the wristbands until the next morning so we had to pay for food and drink that night but on the plus side we did have the all inc right up to the moment we left At other golden hotels this has happened but they have allowed family's to have snacks after the flight and transfer. This aside was a lovely hotel staff were friendly and a good safe location was throughly enjoyed by all in our group of 8 adults and 5 kidsMore

Lovely family holiday
We got an amazing deal with Thompson. 7 nights half board in June 2015. The pools are big and a good temperature. The baby pools were great and both my children age 1 and 2 were able to stand up in the pool, splash and generally enjoy it. There is no shortage of Sun lounger, there is however a shortage of umbrellas and it really annoyed us actually because we desperately needed an umbrella to shade our children from the beaming hot sun. Big groups of families annoyed me too as they laid there towels out an hour or so before they actually came to the pool and also grabbed too many umbrellas selfishly and you weren't meant to do that. The lifeguards are amazing. Polite and helpful and the lady lifeguard was very patient and kind to my hyper children they work such long hours in the hot sun but still stay professional. We also saw the pool being cleaned every night. The rooms were small but it wasn't a problem, had a rack to hang your towels on every evening. Managed to get the disney channel in English for my children at bedtime thank goodness. Showers are good and powerful. Air-con is good but balcony door has to be shut. We were in room 105 on floor 1 and we got a beautiful view of the pool and we loved sitting out on the balcony when the children were asleep. Wish we could of had a higher floor room as we could barely see the beach. The maids are fantastic they looked so hot and worn out but always smiled and were so polite our room was always clean and fresh. The food was very good. Always lots of variety and theme nights. Always somewhere to sit. And one night my son actually threw up everywhere (from heat exhaustion if I'm honest) and we were so embarrassed but the waitresses were fantastic and didn't think twice about helping us. The restaurant manager told us to put our own bottle of water away one dinner time and that annoyed me because our children were hot and thirsty and the bottles they serve I thought were expensive and small. One time my husband went to one of the chefs cooking the pancakes at breakfast and he said "what do you want!!!" Very abrupt so my husband walked away refusing to be spoken to like that. Laura at the Thompson desk is fantastic you can ask her anything. And she knows the area very well. The animation crew girls are just great. Always lively always smiling. They work all day in the heat and then entertained you in the evening till late. Great bunch of people. The one major downside to our holiday was that we couldn't believe how rude foreign guests are. We held doors open for them and never once got a thank you or even a smile. They would barge past me and my children. The only people that ever held a door open for me and my double pram were the British guests. We had a great week and if your willing to walk there is plenty to see. I highly recommend Marineland. And you can get a free bus there and back from right outside the hotel. Would definitely consider going back in the future.More

Perfect for families with young kids!
We visited at the end of June and loved every minute. Busy but always got a sunbed and always got a table for entertainment. Kids club 10/10- Runs all day and keeps the kids happy! Kids entertainment on a night- if you have kids aged 0-10 this is the perfect place- disco every night, face painting, balloon making etc Adult entertain after 9pm- great shows included Grease, 80s party, broadway, loved it! Rooms were very clean with air con Daytime activities fun for all the family- darts, water basketball, water aerobics, pool competitions plus other games Food was average but edible. Free wifi We were all inclusive and found the hotel met all our needs Looking to come back next year!More
