With a beachfront location and its own waterpark, this hotel puts everything at your fingertips. There's a separate pool on hand, too, and another one for children. And as well as a buffet restaurant, an à la carte sits right by the beach.
Pulled right up against Playa Taurito Beach, the Hotel Paradise has clinched one of the best spots in town. Not only does it put you footsteps from the sand, it offers up sweeping views over the Atlantic Sea. Plus, if you want to get out and explore, the centre of Puerto Rico is less than ten minutes in a taxi.
At the hotel, the main talking point is the pool scene. There’s a turquoise number flanked by palm trees, but it’s the waterpark that deserves special mention. It’s got the full spectrum of slides, from a kamikaze to a sidewinder. What’s more, little ones can splash around in their own pool, which comes complete with a pirate ship.
At mealtimes, choose from international dishes in the buffet restaurant or sample the a la carte menu down on the beach. And for after-dinner entertainment, you can look forward to lively shows and music in the bar.

We had a fantastic stay at the Paradise Lago Taurito. The room was clean and tidy. All the staff, from receptionists, cleaners and restaurant staff to Marco and his animation team were polite and hardworking. The food is excellent, lots of different things to choose from. If you go expecting a 3* hotel you will be pleasantly surprised. Airport pick-up / drop off was easy with a travel time of around 40-50 minutes. The hotel pool is a little small, especially at busy times but there is a waterpark right on the doorstep. Sun loungers around the pool get 'reserved' quite early, we saw some people putting their towels on them before they went to bed, so we tended to use the upper area near the spa pool which was always much quieter. One of the reasons we chose this hotel was because it had a 'Teen Club' but during our stay we had to ask the animation team and were told it wasn't on because there weren't enough teenagers (there were lots, but perhaps not interested in the club), this was disappointing for our older child as our younger child enjoyed the Kids Club. There was entertainment every night but you generally need to be there before the kids disco at 8pm to get a table. There are lots of shops right next to the hotel that sell food, drink, clothes, souvenirs, inflatables etc. More

Would not visit again! Gran canaria has lots to offer but not this hotel!!!!
My child received an electric shock at the outdoor evening area! We found the maintenance very poor!
Elevators frequently not working!
Food choice was limited and repetitive!
Spotted several cockroaches and flys in the restaurant with no cutlery, chipped plates and cups.
No air con worked in our room!
The beach is black sand!
Evening bar is very overcrowd as several surrounding hotels share it. Sometimes only 1/2 bar staff!!
Shows finish early with no music etc after!
So many more problems...
I did nothing but complain the entire holiday and wish we had never booked here!More

No care for vegetarians
1 week stay in the hotel and found it hard as they do not cater for vegetarians. Raised eyebrows when you ask about veg food
Wanted to speak to manager and was told she will be in the next morning. (Rosa)
Went to see her the next morning and was told she is not in. Was asked to wait for public relations manager Gretta who was extremely rude and said that they need to look after 1000 people and can't really do much for vegetarians
Horrid staff and rude
Animation team awesome
Small pool compared to the size of hotel
Weather is amazing so we made the most of it

12 night stay at Lago Taurito
Just returned from a lovely break the hotels facilities are good especially the water park, although it is salt water and goggles required there were very rarely queues for the slides. The park is equipped with areas for all ages with a good range of slides.
Inside the hotel complex there are arcades, trampolines, mini golf, arcades, bowling etc and lots of shops a supermarket, pharmacy and doctors. The beach is within the complex with a range of water sports.
The hotel is clean with spacious rooms and is quiet once entertainment finishes at 11pm although there is a bar open in the water park after this. The food is good unless you have fussy kids but snack bar serves burgers hot dogs etc too.
There are other resorts within a 5 or 10 min drive but not anywhere you can walk too because there are no walkways due to high hills. There are regular buses and taxis. Would recommend this hotel for families wanting everything within the complex.More
