Hotel Paradise Lago Taurito  

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.

The holiday was good but I wouldn't go back!

I'll start by saying if you're reading this and panicking about having booked it then panic not - it is a good place to go your holiday - it's just certain things that have put me off. The place is spotlessly clean, it is well maintained and it is a lovely resort - should you wish to remain in this resort only for your full holiday you could do so. Balconies are a great size too with tables and chairs. There are hair dryers in the family rooms (possibly in the others) and fridges and a small kitchen although there's no pots, pans etc. you can hire an iron, the TV remote and safety deposit boxes (€3 per day plus €10 deposit). The rooms were spacious but the shower is just awful - you have to stand above the plug hole and bend backwards to get a wash. I could hear next door's air-con as well which wasn't ideal. The staff in the place are less than friendly - sometimes the exact opposite. Only 1 person (Constantine) went of of their way to talk to us. The rest were at times down right rude. The food was basic - very samey over the course of the stay and the snack choices were toasties, burgers and hotdogs - only served from 3-6. No snacks outwith this time. Local version of booze were on offer and only four cocktails - made from a machine - one of which was non-alcoholic. Drinks served from 12-11. The beer was nice though. Couldn't get a tea or coffee with lunch or dinner only breakfast but you could get a self service coffee at the pool bar until 6. There was plenty to do for the kids and the adults through the animation team. They were pretty friendly and their mini disco at night was good although one night it was far too loud and I got abuse when I asked for it to be turned down. The entertainment was poor, very dated. One night there was a parrot show, then the animation team mimed popular songs but called it a show ie Grease and We will rock you. There's a disco called La Bamba- we didn't try it. The water park has a good choice of slides but the water is freezing and it's sea water plus the food and drink are not all inclusive. The beach is right on the doorstep - black sand and the water is wild. It's quite rocky but only €3 for a sun lounger and the wee bar at the end of the row offers discount for Paradose guests. Small beer is €1.50 - same for an ice lolly. We went to Puerto Rico for the day and the his was €7 for 6 of us (one toddler who got free) very quick journey on the No.1 bus that you get at the hotel. You'll get your cigs, booze and perfume here cheaper plus all your wee nic nacs. Not a bad holiday but I wouldn't go back as the service was awful, the food was mediocre and the drink selection was poor. Travel: Another point to note is I went with low cost holidays and we had to seek out where to get the transfer - there was no one to help. Also prams and other over sized luggage items come from special baggage not the usual luggage conveyor belt.More

Vicky M,

Great place to relax

We're here now in room 501a myself and my 10 year old daughter It's the second time we have been within a year. Good food and good entertainment, great staff Safe for kids to roam free Nice and clean What more do you need on a family holiday Don't take any notice of the negative reviews. You will love it if you just want to relax and do nothing for a week. I'm writing this at six in the morning with birds tweeting outside its 18 degres and forecast sunny,,,,looking forward to the day ahead. Will defo come again in winter but can be a bit breezy an night so bring a warm top "Tip of the day" More

wecoolanycar,

Great Value for Money!

The hotel was clean, well maintained and well staffed. The all inclusive buffet had a great selection from freshly cooked steak to pizza and pasta! Both bars well well staffed with friendly people who were always cheerful, even in the rain! The resort is well laid out with a few shops, a supermarket and even a water park! Close to Taurito's beautiful beach. Will definitely visit here again!More

Not much there but fine family's

Went on this holidays with family and friends. Went last year. I have to say I was a bit disappointed with the location. There was hardly anything their apart from one or two shops and a bar that closes early. And I didn't find it that pretty. You could travel to the next town called Puerto Morgan which were we spent some days at that beach because i thought it was much calmer and safer to swim in than the one by the hotel in which the currents are very strong so beware. Onto the main hotel the rooms were very clean and did the job fine. We had a good room so we didn't here much noise. The dinner room was very big and had lots of choice for food which is nice. I like the hotel it had nice decore, and had internet access for a small cost, on their computers. The pool I rarely went in because it was always packed, and sunbeds were so hard to get however this was the middle of summer holidays. Spent most of the time in the water park however it was sea water and I heard some people got rashes. Overall I think this is fine for a family holiday with kids, but I wouldn't come back due to the location.More
