The Golden Taurus Park Resort is really well geared up for families. Take its setting, for starters. The hotel looks out over Pineda de Mar's pretty beach, so you've got easy access to prime sunbathing and paddling territory. It's also only a 10-minute walk from the shops and restaurants in the town centre. You'll find 3 good-sized swimming pools in the heart of the grounds. They're flanked by lawns and palms, and feature tropical touches like wooden bridges and waterfalls. Little ones have 2 extra pools all to themselves. Plus, there's an indoor option complete with a hot tub. Activity-wise, there's always something going on here. Children can join in with games and workshops at the Thomson Kids' Club, while adults get the likes of cycling, crazy golf and tennis. And when the sun goes down, expect professional shows and competitions designed to appeal to the whole family.

Everything you could possibly want!!
My family have been guests at the Taurus for almost 30 years and have never had a bad experience. It is a truly fantastic place for children of all ages and adult, as long as they remember that it is a family hotel. The hotel is not only aimed at families but run by one and this is evident in the friendly nature of the staff and homely atmosphere. The hotel offers a wide range of activities and is visited by many other families who return year after year. The number of friends we have made over the years is amazing, from many different countries the hotel draws us all back. The staff are warm and friendly and have become like family to us. the hotel maybe in a quiet location, but this is one of the main key features of the hotel, it is still in a fairly traditional area but is still within close travellign distance of both Barcelona and Girona. It is a truly wonderful place to stay and no request is too much for the staff. Ignore reviews that state otherwise, if you don't lofe something or need something whilst at the hotel, you only have to ask. If you are looking for an unforgettable holiday, the Taurus is the hotel you need.More

Good hotel, in the wrong place
I never write reviews but after reading some terrible ones would like to add my views. Travelled with thomsons for 10 nights half board, in august with my husband and two daughters 6 and 8. Good points - hotel was spacious, well kept, next to the beach, food was good especially breakfast, one pools doors didn't open until 9am so this is when I went down with our towels, if your not on your lounger by 10am your towels are moved, immaculately clean, best evening entertainment we have seen ..... It usually makes me cringe, could always get seated in the dining room, supermarket over the road, lots and I mean lots of people return to this hotel year after year - I was amazed! Can get the train to Barcelona- 40 min journey Bad points - drinks expensive, beach fairly rough with steep shelved incline into the sea.... You were either in or out, my husband doesn't like to be out of his depth so didn't get in, there is very little in Pineda de mar, walked to main strip couple of times, weather wasn't great for us - not hotels fault we will be going further away next yr, pools are freezing, sun beds are tightly packed but you get on with it, thomson reps were worst I have seen .... Agree with comments from others no idea what they did, welcome meeting was all about them .... They let the company down All in all, hotel was good just in the wrong spot especially if you are a sandy beach lover. We had a good holiday which represented value for moneyMore

Great Hotel in a Quieter Location
Stayed for a week at this hotel and it was great! Was unsure on location before we went but it’s perfect if you want a slightly quieter resort. Also ideal for visiting Barcelona... Location; great location if you’re after a quieter area. A 5-10 min stroll one direction take you to Pineda de Mar and 15-20 mins on the other direction take you to Calella which is much more lively with a range of shops and places to eat. The hotel is on the seafront where there is a costal path in both directions. Hotel and Service; all the staff are so friendly and helpful. Hotel is very clean. Swimming Pools; all the pools are great. There is also a quite pool to chill out in and around which is great Food; many comments here about food... personally we found it great. It’s what you can expect for an "all inclusive" / "half board" style hotel. Everything is cooked fresh in front of you with a good choice and different options / themes each evening. Entertainment; great range of entertainment in the day as well as night! For example the hotel arranges a bike ride you can go on during the day, or, as we did, you can hire the bikes separately which is well worth it with the amazing costal path. Each evening there is different entertainment, including live music and productions. Visiting Barcelona; you can do this through Thomson / First Choice or you can do it without! We did it without. The nearest train station is Pineda de Mar in (just5-10 min stroll) and for 26 Euros each you have a return train ticket and an unlimited ticket for the tour busses – really recommended. If you want to go back to Barcelona then the return train ticket is just 9 Euros each!! It take approximately 1 hour and 10mins. Overall, a great hotel in a fantastic location – not far to walk at all into the neighbouring towns – and the walk is along the costal path. The staff at the hotel are so helpful and the facilities are great.More
