Golden Taurus Park Resort  

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.

Hit and miss really, better for young families

Just landed back in the UK from spending the week at the Golden Taurus Park Resort and the stay was okay, but nothing special for us. When we arrived we were give our rooms, one double room and another two bedroom room. I asked if these were far away enough from the entertainment to be quiet jst because we are generally light sleepers and we were told yes. The room was directly above the entertainment and was really loud. Also when we got to the room is had an awful smell. We had no towels in the room and it was also directly over the laundry room as well so had the worst view I have had at any holiday resort of the roof and a chimney. I went downstairs and spoke to reception and explained my concerns and asked if I could pay to upgrade. No room they said. I said that the smell was awful and if they could do anything that would be great. Nothing all week. The food in the snack bar was great. Fresh burgers and chis, hotdogs, toasties and more. All inclusive was pretty limited unfortunately and most of the drinks were not included so you had to pay a bit more for some selection. The restaurant food was okay, I recommend siting outside as it is beautiful in the evening but careful of cold food which is not too nice. The pool was great, prett cold but thats what we needed in the heat. Pool bar gets busy but drinks and ice creams there were good too. Entertainment was incredible on most nights. If you have the chance I would say go to the Michael Jackson show and grab a table early because that was a highlight for us. Overall I think the hotel was okay. It was nothing spectacular, and probably closer to a three star hotel. Families with little ones may have more fun here but just did not meet the standards of other four star hotels I have stayed at and reviewed.More

Last minute holiday..great choice

This hotel caters for families and oldies alike. If you want to avoid the children parts as we did there's an adult bar you can visit while the families are enjoying their night on the stage. The all inclusive took some getting used to, having to sign for everything and being shown the more expensive non inclusive options...but it actually works. Restaurant and food is excellent... Great attention to detail and some really good themed nights.... Make an effort to dress up, it does make a difference. All inclusive drinks are brilliant..only the unusual stuff you'd have to pay for. I strongly suggest you get a drinks menu which shows the free/ not free options. Please note all inclusive finishes at 11.00 pm so Gary then in before that. Staff can't do enough to help you and everyone was smiling. Suggest you try Barcelona from here, great day out but be careful with the water park..they were late picking us up and returNing us ..not well organised. Queues at every slide. More

Don't be put off by some of the reviews ,this hotel is fantastic for children kids golden club and Thomson kids club was fantastic with my 8 year old ,and the teen golden club was great for our 17 year old staff hear work very hard to make your stay very enjoyable .rooms are a bit basic ,but are clean the only thing in my opinion was there was only two sockets one in the bathroom and one in the double bedroom and with all of jus having phones and other devices it was hard charging them .there are a few shops restaurants and bars close by .beach accessible through an underpass as trainline in between ,but no problem and not to much noise .if you are going to go on the train to Barcelona be careful of pickpockets ,I got my purse stolen from my bag when everyone pushed to get on busy train so please beware of this it is very common seemingly .trains run every half hour to Barcelona .More

Great Holiday

We stayed for a week, arriving on 9 July on an all inclusive basis. The hotel is about 40 mins from the airport so a nice short journey. The hotel is across the road from the beach which was lovely and clean and had a great walkway. There is a rail track that runs along next to the road but the noise is minimal and you barely notice it. Check in was easy and quick. We had a double room which although small and basic was very clean with air conditioning, a fridge and toiletries. The balcony door also had a metal latch on it making it difficult to open from the outside which was good. The room was cleaned daily and I couldn't fault the general cleanliness of the hotel. Our room wasn't a sea view but we had a great view of the mountains. The meals are buffet service and despite staying at the hotel during a very busy time we never had a problem getting a seat. The food was fine, all the things you would expect (burgers, pasta, pizza, fish, salads and plenty of veg). When they take your drinks order in the restaurant they give you a receipt which you take to the till on the way out. As we were all inclusive you just had to sign for it (we were worried drinks weren't included at meal times but they were). There were two pool areas, two pool bars and plenty of sunbeds as well an indoor pool. The main bar was very spacious and the kids entertainment takes place in there every night but it was very easy to avoid. Lots of outdoor places to sit to escape the noise and another bar (the Havana bar open till 2am) which was pretty much kid free and had great service. I was surprised to find that Smirnoff was included in the all inclusive. Drinks choice was excellent and cocktail of the day was also included in the all inclusive. There was a snack bar with plenty of choice. Included in the AI was burgers, hot dogs, chips, pizza and toasties. You could also get ice creams at the pool bars which was fab. The hotel is about 10 mins walk from Pineda which has some shops and restaurants. Worth a look around. There is also a train station where you can get the train to Barcelona. Takes about an hour and 10 mins and costs just under 10 euros return. Calella is also about a 15 min walk and it is def worth a visit. The Main Street is a couple of streets up from the beach and has a great choice of bars and restaurants. If you want an authentic Spanish experience for a great price head to the Bodega Azor which I can't recommend enough! All in all the hotel had everything you could want. My husband frequently calls me a holiday snob and while this hotel isn't luxury it's a fantastic find with all the essentials for a good holiday. More

Another fantastic holiday

We were at the Taurus for 11 nights 14-25 June and what can I say except we had a FABULOUS holiday.We took our 10 year old granddaughter with us and she had a whale of a time.The animation team work so so hard to keep all the kids older or young entertained.From the staff on reception to the cleaners around and about and everyone else who forks in different places in the hotel all I can say is they give 110% and always have a smile for you.A special mention to the dining room staff.How they all manage to be polite and keep a smile on their faces I'll never know. Well done everyone for making our holiday specialMore
