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.

Golden tauris park hotel
Been to this hotel 6 times now. Started going there in 1997. The hotel has always ben very clean. staff always friendly the food of good quality, even the coffee machine gives a descent coffee at breakfast!!. The refurbishment in the restaurant makes it a lot more friendly. The best thing we noticed this year was that both me and my husband had our own key card to the room as opposed to one between us. I still think the happy hour is too early at 5.30 and perhaps a change of the entertainment in the havanna bar would be better, it is a little dated and the same guy every evening !! Nice and close to the beach and main railway line. Town square and next town of Callela with in walking distanceMore
Our 4th year here and it just gets better!! The family suites had been refurbished, beautiful and modern, the mattress topper was great, for those who prefer a softer bed. Food excellent as always and the manager and his staff a total credit our son has a serious peanut allergy and nothing is too much trouble he can be independent and never missed out. The animacion team as always first class with the children and their evening shows were excellent. We went for 14 nights and managed to fit in lots of trips. I can highly recommend the catamaran trip, medieval night, both water parks and Barcelona fountains and stadium. We have a 12 year old and 10 year old and they love it we hardly see them as there is so much to do and over the years they have made some fantastic friends. The hotel is always clean and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Kelli is absolutely fantastic always there for you. We'll done Golden Taurus you did it again. We have had to book two holidays next year as our boys don't want to miss GT they feel like part of the family and thank you for making my youngest birthday 🎂 fantastic. See you in July.More
Friend of the Robin,
Golden Taurus Park July 2017
The hotel was clean and immaculate, the hotel rooms were cleaned with fresh towels everyday. Breakfast was excellent, with choices of fresh omelettes, sandwiches, English breakfasts and pancakes. Evening dinners, there was always a choice of freshly prepared meats and fish, as well as salad and deserts. The choice of pools/sunbathing areas were excellent, one area for daytime entertainment/activities, and the other was a quieter pool/sunbathing area just for relaxing. The indoor pool was also useful as it rained a couple of times during our stay. Had no issues getting sun loungers, no matter what time of the day we needed them. The beach was literally a 30 second walk from the hotel. The evening entertainment was very good, and there were lots of bars in the hotel to sit down in and relax in the evening. The only improvements I would say which are needed are the rooms, even though immaculately cleaned, need to be re-fitted and modernised, and the hotel WiFi needs to be improved.More
What a lovely hotel, food and entertainment very good, My room was cleaned daily, lovely friendly staff, Loved location as it was across from the beach, Downfall was I saw a rat, I hate them, I was having a quiet family drink in the bar area near the poo, it was about 5.50pm I felt it spoilt my holiday as I am afraid of them, I did report it, I won't be going back to Golden Taurus againMore
Fantastic hotel and great holiday..
At present I'm on my last day of a ten day holiday at the Taurus and can honestly say I could do another ten. We came to the taurus at the end of July for 10 days, on transfer from the airport to the hotel there were two drop offs, initially the surrounding area leading up to Pineda gave the impression it was quite rough with graffiti and closed up businesses, however travelling 20 minutes further on we then discovered that the Taurus is located in a much nicer side of the resort. On arrival there were quite a few people waiting to get booked in, the staff on the front desk were very friendly and efficient and we had the keys to our room within 20 minutes. Rooms As we were taking two young children 11 and 6 we booked a double room this was spacious and had a large balcony over looking the pool and the sea front, the room consisted of one double bed in room 1, room 2 consisted of two single beds, the rooms are kept exceptionally clean with a maid attending every day also providing clean towels, you have all the general amenities you would expect i.e. Fridge, air con etc.(no kettle). You also get three U.K. Channels on the TV. Restaurant For breakfast there is a big selection to make from, either your general Fried eggs bacon sausage etc, or continental breakfast pastries, or cereals as well, I did find some of the bacon quite greasy however on a whole the breakfast was more than adequate. Lunch - we booked all inclusive and ironically never used the restaurant as the snack bar suited the kids more and is more accessible by the pool area. Evening meal - now I've noticed there are a number of reviews on here stating that the food is repetitive, I've been here for ten days now and must have just hit the turn around cycle as our food last night was the same as our first day of arrival, yes there is chips everyday and chicken and also some sort of pork however this is catering for most people, there are various themed nights tandoori, BBQ, Chinese etc and also a large salad selection, I could also see various dishes catering for vegetarians, all in all I was more than happy with the food and never felt the need to eat outside the hotel. Snack bar - great for the kids you can get burgers, chips, hotdogs etc all on the all inclusive.(also I would like to add Jose has had some criticism on here from some of the other reviewers, from my experience he was very polite and welcoming to my family every morning and evening when using the restaurant) POOL There are three pools at the hotel two busy ones where all the entertainment is and a quiet one at the back, we opted for the quiet one at the back of the hotel, it has a great size to it and there's never any issues getting a sunbed, also the bar is very accessible in the centre of the pool and there is never more than a five minute wait. Entertainment This went on all day at the main pool but we didn't get to involved, however there's something going on throughout the day for the kids. On the evening there is a mixture of shows some acts brought in and others by the in house animation team, other than one night I found the entertainment really good which bode well as we never really felt the need to leave the hotel.( my one criticism here is the main show is on to late which I believe has been highlighted by other reviewers, by bringing it forward an hour to 9pm it would be so much better) All Inclusive I had initially booked this holiday as half board, then had a change of mind and up graded, if you have children I would highly recommend this, for some reason other reviewers found the all inc confusing which for the life of me I can't understand why, given my 11 year old and 6 year old were both going to the snack bar and poolside bar to get their own drinks and ice creams (magnums and cornettos) it's all really straightforward, there's also branded drinks included in mealtimes so it is value for money. Outside the hotel. Now there are some positive and negatives here, outside of the hotel you can take a short walk up the road and you will find a small market on the evenings with the general souvenir stores etc, all the locals are very friendly and there's none of the aggressive attempts to hassle you into the stores, however after you've been around them a couple of times that's it, so it is a fairly quite town. BEACH - this is great location you are on the beach in two minutes from the hotel, I would suggest however you pick up a sun umbrella from the hotel shop for 15 euros and save yourself a few quid, the beach is not to packed and the sand can be slightly shalley, if your going for a dip be careful with toddlers, there is a shelf and your up to chest hight six feet into the water, on the plus side there are some good waves coming in to which myself and the 11 year old had hours of fun with the blow up boat. TRAIN There is a train station directly outside the hotel which is ideal to get straight into Barcelona or just further up the coast, Strangely enough it's also pretty quite so you don't really notice it's there after the first day. Overall. I've had a fantastic holiday here which also seems to be the general consensus from most reviewers who seem to come back frequently, the staff are very friendly and couldn't give any negative comments towards the waitresses, waiters or reception staff, food is good and the entertainment is great, if your looking for a hassle free holiday without having to trek everywhere for food and entertainment and are happy to stay in the hotel I would recommend the Taurus without any second thought, I will come back to this hotel at some point in the future.
