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.

Great family holiday - with some slight reservations

Just back from a great week. Kids absolutely had the best time. Not a perfect trip (mostly down to Travel Company - more on this later) but here are the good and bad points: Good • Kids club & activities were great. No one forces the adults to participate but it was great to get up from my sun lounger a few times to do Yoga or Zumba for 20 minutes. The kids adored the clubs & met so many wonderful children from all over Europe that they plan to keep in touch with. • Food better than I expected. There are lots of fresh salads, fish or meat at each meal and if you cannot find something to eat – you should stay home or go to a different hotel. It was sad to see adults fill their plates with chips & pizza when there was some decent food to try. But hey, whatever – if you want to pay all-inclusive prices and eat a plate of chips twice per day go for it. • There is a good choice of facilities, pools, aqua park, nice (smallish) beach, etc. In the evenings we enjoyed the mini-disco and shows. Older child used the arcade a lot and as a family we loved playing mini-golf. • You can drink as much beer & wine as you like. There are also mixed drinks using own brand version of spirits….I had a “Malibu” and Coke using their own brand Coconut rum stuff and it was absolutely fine. Similarly the “Jack” and Coke was alright. • We spent quite a bit of time at the Aqua Park. As it was off season they were pretty relaxed about inflatables in the pool. Slightly cold and it is salt-water – so be aware. Bad • Sadly as in all mass catering venues – the food was never hot. • The food is also a little bland – also down to the mass catering effect – you can’t do overly spicy stuff as they need to allow for all tastes. We are having a curry tonight to get some spice into our diet. • The room was clean and tidy but bathroom was not fit for purpose. Horrible mishmash of tiles used to patch things over the years, the shower head was falling off and dribbled water. Very rarely had very hot water – m ore warm to hot temperature. • Balcony with no sun lounger – what else would you want to do out there? • Was (probably) formerly a self-catering facility – there was a full kitchen but no crockery/cups, kettle and cutlery. So this huge part of the room went unused. • Meant to be a family room but the couch bed was not large enough to accommodate our two children (one 10 and one 6). If your kids are 8 and under you will probably be okay. • Parents: please tell your kids NOT TO HANDLE THE BUFFET FOOD WITH THEIR HANDS. Saw a little (unsupervised) girl put her hand in some cheese. GROSS!!!!! • This is definitely the kind of place where people get up at 6 a.m. to put towels on sun loungers (although the hotel says you cannot – they all do don’t they?) – I swore I would never go such a place, but I did and (although we NEVER did this) we were able to find a place to sit when we were not at the Aqua Park. • There seem to be a lot parents that let their teenagers bring their girl/boyfriends on holiday – they seem to spend all their time groping one another in public. If I wanted to see a live sex show I would go somewhere else, okay, thanks. Namaste. • Watch your kids at the pool. NO disrespect intended, but I would not rely on the life-guarding that I saw. Just saying. Issues with On The Beach (travel company) • There are different levels of “all-inclusive” so some people were getting a lot more than we were. We had no Wi-Fi, kettle in room, towels, safe, TV remote, etc. NOT happy as this was never explained to us and we were never given the opportunity to choose the services we wanted / needed. Husband overheard someone in reception say that there were 5 different levels of all inclusive • I asked them for more details/explanations on two occasions & was given the wrong info by their staff, so had to go to the airline (directly) to sort one thing out & the other We are thinking of booking again for next year. But we will not rent a car next year (we never felt the need to go outside of the resort). We did go on boat trip one day though. There are some nice day trips from the resort – we were just watching our budget. Bring your own beach towels unless you are on the super all inclusive package, which well you may or may not know that you are. ASK!More

Fantastic Hotel

Have just returned from a week's holiday and can't wait to come back again. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is excellent and continuously well stocked so very rarely ran out. Tables are cleared regularly so we never had to wait for a table. Our room was very spacious (family of 3) and cleaned to a good standard each day. Shower floor could do with some attention but apart from that everything was fine. You have to pay a deposit for the TV but there are only two or three English channels so not really worth bothering with. Besides who wants to watch TV on holiday? The animation team do a great job and the entertainment in the evenings had a good variety. Particularly enjoyed the music quiz. There is an arcade open in the evenings and very reasonably priced. Tip - bring your own towels. You have pay for beach towels (cash only) each day and a depositMore

Excellent hotel for families

Hotel was lovely, rooms spacious. We had a baby cot in ours too and still plenty of room. Cots were provided and were very comfy, as were the adult beds. Animation team excellent especially Ricardo and elenor, they put in so much effort. Water park was brilliant, yes it's salt water but not a problem if you wear goggles, sun beds are free but if you want a mat or an umbrella there is a small charge. Night time entertainment was funny, kids loved all the shows, only thing I would say is that the drinks outside at the bar do change. I was on Malibu and coke and sometimes it was undrinkable, not sure what happened there. Plenty of food available and different choices each day, only problem was it wasn't very hot. Overall our holiday was amazing and hotel gorgeous. Would definately stop here again.More

Leanna H, Derby, United Kingdom

good hotel. just a few things

I would love to come back in the future. The animation team were friendly, lovely and funny. Just the deposit of the towels and the charge for each day wasn't very good for our first day. The room was on the 5th (526) floor which has a good view of the sea. The only problem with the room was the shower floor and that you had to pay a deposit for the TV. The facilities available was amazing. No problems with them. The water park was fun to go in because it was free to enter however I didn't like the water being salt water. It's not my type of water for water parks. I also didn't like paying for sunbeds. The bar and restaurant was excellent just maybe some more options for the snack bar and maybe glass cups for the drinks. there is easy access to the beach which was so much fun. Would love to back again in the near future. More

MrVideoFreak,

Super hotel for families with kids

The hotel is located together with 4 other hotels who all share the activity center in the middle of the valley. The rooms (we had a family room) are very spacious with doors to the terrace from both living room and bedroom. All in all, the hotel is good and it is very easy to get an overview of both hotel and the whole area. It gave a good feeling knowing that our boy could find his way around. It is easy and cheap to go to both Puerto Mogan and Puerto Rico by local bus. Good activity in the hotel during the day for both children and adults with an animation team who are happy, active and engaged. The mini golf with 18 holes is great and the activity center with machines, “cycle cars”, big-jumps and family bowling is also very good. The only minus is that the activity center does not open until 6pm in the evening. This is too late because at that time most families are occupied with showering and eating dinner to be able to attend mini disco at 8pm. In my opinion it should be open much earlier, especially those days where the sun doesn’t show at all, so it is too cold to use the water-world. They could earn a lot of money on that, so it would be in all interests. The mini golf (like all the shops etc.) does not open until 10am in the morning, so everything is dead until 10am. Likewise the water-world does not open before 10am and the slides not before 10.30am. So for us with a child who wakes up very early in the morning, there are many hours of waiting for the fun to begin. The mini disco is fantastic, again with an engaged animation team, and our boy were looking forward to and loved to dance every night, and met friends at the dancefloor. Most of the evenings shows we did not watch (we had to put our boy to bed), but we watched the one with eagles. It was very good and much more child focused than what we have experienced before with such shows. A lot of the children were called one by one to the stage and received the eagles on their arms (with help) when they were flying from the stage to the audience and back. It was really special that they took the audience into the show like that. The food was nothing to write about, but of cause that is expected when it is all inclusive, so no surprise there.... All in all it is a fantastic hotel and area if you have children who love water and waterslides (remember wetsuit, we had for the whole family and it was needed). Also because there are so many other families with children so it is easy to find friends. I would defiantly go again and recommend families with children to go. But I would never go there without child/children.More
