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.

holiday with grandkids

not much to grumble about except for unfortunate plane delay, but beware of hidden extras, we went all inclusive, six adults four kids had to pay hotel tax £42 euro, safety deposit box cost £20 euro for a week, beach is not kids friendly, very hot and stoney sand, uncomfortable unless you have swimming shoes, no lifeguards and a strong current that wants to take you out to sea even if you are a good swimmer toilets on beach really dirty, and you have to walk under a train line to get to beach queues for sunbeds ridiculous, tried to get sunbeds at the animation pool, but at 6:45 am a sea of towel have appeared so then have to wait for the other pool which opens at opens at 8:45 and there are people queuing at 6;00 am and a stampede like the january sales when door open sunbeds tatty and crammed together but pool clean and great fun main problem no coffee or tea making facilities in room or vending machines outside so long queues to get drinks when bars open snack bar is only all inclusive till 1;00 pm for food, a problem if you like to stay around the pool area. main dining opens at 1:00 but no wet clothesMore

Honestly fantastic

Have just returned from 10 days and we cannot wait to re book. The hotel is about 40 minutes from girona airport and the transfer was straight forward Due to a flight delay we were over an hour late arriving and although the restaurant should have been closed it was kept open for us which was a really nice start. Check in was quick and I had requested a quieter room some months ago and our room was exactly what we asked for The room was spotless and spacious enough for the 3 of us. It had a hairdryer and fridge and tv showing a few English channels- we had a gorgeous view from the room. During our stay the room was cleaned daily to an extremely high standard The pool areas were spotless and we tended to use the busier side as it is where the entertainment activities took place. We never struggled to get a sun bed although the majority were reserved by 9am but in fairness towels were removed if the sun bed lay empty for too long. Throughout the day there were many activities for all ages run by the hotels animation team. Everyone was catered for and the team work tirelessly and always had smiles on their faces - special mention goes to josh Anthony and Paul who made my son's holiday! There was a pool bar open from 10 and although we were there for the busiest period we never had to queue for long - Ramon who worked there was lovely and always had a smile. There was also a snack bar and terrace which had friendly staff and was nice for a coffee or a range of snacks that were included on AI throughout different periods of the day The main restaurant is buffet style but you are served drinks at the table which is a nice touch. Previous reviews had mentioned that the food was poor but I can say it is probably the best we've had on AI. There was always plenty of choice - salads,cold meats, soups, meat fish, vegetarian options pasta and always something being cooked fresh - also beautiful desserts and a special mention to the made to order omelette at breakfast. As with any buffet restaurant by the end of the break you struggle to think what you fancy but we just had a lunch or two at the snack bar which was as equally good. There are many branded alcoholic drinks included in the AI including Smirnoff - there's also a cocktail of the day which were lovely. If your drink of choice is not included them it's normally at a reduced price for AI There's a variety of evening entertainment. There's a smaller bar called habana which had a quiz and live music by Neil james. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the service by the two members of staff in there was outstanding- the gentleman was called Tomas but we can't remember the woman's name but they were both brilliant. There was also a large entertainment venue which held shows by the entertainment team or outside acts - it was very busy in here but we were always able to get a seat and served at the bar. The shows were great - at times a little cheesy but always fun and it's obvious how much hard work goes into preparing them by the entertainment team. There's always security around and we felt safe at all times. There is a lower level with an indoor pool and laundrette but we didn't use either. The surrounding area was nice with the towns of Pineda and calella within walking distance- the beach is across the road and it's lovely. The sand is a little rough but it is a beautiful view and lovely area. A visit to Aruba beach bar is highly recommended. We took a train into Barcelona which was lovely and easy but I think next time I would pay extra and do an organised excursion just for ease. I know that everyone has different opinions but I was quite nervous on arrival given previous reviews but I needn't have worried as this place is amazing and attention to detail is second to none even during peak period. My only reasons for not giving 5 stars are small - I would've liked tea/coffee facilities in the room and the fact that that the large entertainment venue was indoors instead of outdoor and quite noisy but they are honestly small picky reasons. We never tend to return to the same place twice but after arriving home today I am already looking at next year. Thank you all at golden Taurus for making our holiday fantastic More

ESpel_12,

Another fantastic stay!

Another fantastic stay at this hotel. We stayed here for the first time in May 2014 and have recently been again. With the all inclusive package which suits us the most we couldn't fault anything. The hotel, staff, pools, food, drink and area around are brilliant. Are looking to book again for next year already!More

Great but for thomson.

We booked the holiday with Thomson, used them before and thought it was a good package provider. The app was useless, the customer service left me feeling unvalued. Holiday finally arrived and we get to Birmingham airport, Happy days went down hill fast. 2 thomson flights Gerona and Palma.both scheduled for same time. Palma was relatively quiet with 4 baggage desks open, Gerona had 2 desks open. An hour and half to queue with two under 5 not fun. Then gave us an hour to get through security and get them fed.didnt happen. Flight was good but cabin crew didn't want be there. Bus transfer was good. Tourist tax is applicable here despite been told at travel agency it was not. Got to hotel late. No food available unless purchased from snack bar. We we're not given wrist bands at the time with no communication to collect the next day, even at the introduction meeting. Hotel is fantastic for variety. Pools are good but the animation pools are in accessible unless you want queue at 6 am, the "quiet" pool where we spent most days is anything but quiet and the doors open at 8:45 on the dot, then there's a stampede for the beds. I think there's a 2 hour limit of been away from the sun beds before the life guard starts removing them. The standard room for 4 is far to tight once you put a cot in there, also very basic but more than adequate. Theres is No kettle (30€ hire charge 10€ returned upon leaving) no complimentary drinks in the fridge. Beds are rock hard but the hotel will meet any requests made. The staff on the hole are really polite and hard working and can sense pride in them when they work (something in its own right). No mention of the train line in pics or the description however barely noticed it other than the horn during the day).the local shops were a little walk and the area was quite pleasant however not a great deal to do. The beach is shale however it's as close to sand as you will get - really fine grit. Thomson reps on site were helpful however seemed to miss key information such as previously mentioned wrist bands and how the snack bar worked. Ie all inclusive between certain times and the menus weren't part of all inclusive at all. Trips as always were good but do feel could organise myself for cheaper. All in all good holiday. Slightly put off by Thomson. More

John C,

Fantastic family hotel

Wonderful and very helpful staff on reception, and throughout the hotel. Great entertainment team for all ages day and night, plenty for all the family to do. Easy access around the hotel, with three brilliant pools and an indoor pool. Good selection of food, lovely presentation. Great situation, beautiful sea views and only a ten minute walk to train station to visit Barcelona. Ideal hotel for a relaxing family holiday.More
