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.

Nadia N,

Butlins in Paradise!

I stayed here in March 2015 after a cruise holiday to enjoy the waterpark as it looked amazing and I think the South of Gran Canaria is beautiful. This is quite a simple review as there isn't really much need to go into any detail. The resort is absolutely stunning, the views and location are fantastic and the location of this resort is subject to a very special climate where you can guarantee the weather ALL year. The waterpark is absolutely amazing and is open all day and completely included. 10 out of 10- It was spotless, well designed and so much fun. I loved this part of the resort. In my opinion, the hotel is the absolute pits... Whilst it was clean and the rooms were fine. the restaurant was like a huge canteen and was quite unpleasant- the area for night time entertainment was like Butlins where the only served really cheap drinks in plastic cups (You had to pay if you wanted a glass!) You had to pay for the towels, there were no toiletries in the bathroom, the TV remote required a deposit (what kind of people do they have staying here to have this????) and you also had to pay for bottled water at astronomical rates... No bottled water at an all inclusive I find totally unacceptable. I loved the waterpark and the location, but I'll stay at the nicer Valle hotel across the road next time and I would not reccomend the Lago unless you have very young children and purely want them to feel like they have died and gone to heaven- For adults, this hotel is basically horrible. You couldn't even get in the lift most of the time by pushing through the lie los, crocodiles and pushchairs... It was like a council estate in the sunshine. Had it have been a very low price, I think I would have a different opinion- But the resort certainly isn't cheap so I wouldn't reccomend it. Not my idea of a holiday!More

run on a shoe string

we had 2 weeks at the Taurito lago 14th-28th March. all inclusive is not as you would expect, Bars, only 1 bar open from 10-18:00 that`s the pool bar, fine if you want to sit by the pool all day. arena bar open from 18:00- 23:00, Flamingo bar 18:00-23:00. dont expect to much from any of them, you even pay for coffee at the arena bar but not the flamingo bar. Food not to bad if you like pork or chicken EVERY DAY. Breakfast fair selection lunch we gave this a miss most days as its the same as the evening offerings evening food is being cleared from the counters by 20:25, so if you want a pudding get it with your main meal. Entertainment the usual kids stuff at 20:00 the kids seem to enjoy it after that its the usual out dated run of the mill spanish stuff. if it rains as it did for us your stuffed as there is nowhere inside to accommodate rainy weather, that also includes a bar if it rains during the day, they leave it until everyone complains before opening the flamingo bar. The penny pinching is so obvious & yes i agree they have to make a profit but to charge for anything they see as an extra is mean, you will be charged 2 euro for a sunbed & 2 euro for the umbrella & 1 euro for a towel daily if you use the water park, a lot of money if on a budget for families. WiFi 6 euros each day if you need it and it only works reasonably well in reception, there is no FREE WIFI We booked with firstchoice there was no Rep at the hotel or on the transfers you had to go to the other hotel for the welcome meeting!!!!! very little local info passed on tho, more interested in selling trips!!!! REPS find out about local bus service such as what bus goes where and approx how much & how long it might take this could be helpful to lots of people there is a bus and taxi service near the hotel but if you have difficulty walking it is up a hill. TRANSFERS, 40-50 mins we were told, 2hr 20 mins to get there, when we asked about this we were told the 40-50 min advertised time is if the bus goes direct, this is the BIGGEST con i have ever heard, going back to the airport 1hr 15min. yet again no Rep on the bus either going or comingMore

Accommodation great, "All Inclusive" questionable...

I booked this holiday as Gran Canaria was a destination we could fly to from our home town Bristol, and because we it was very cheap (£316 each for 7 nights with Thomas Cook) so wasn't really fussed about the standard of all inclusive. Firstly the accommodation. For a 3 star rating resort you won't be disappointed, if it's just the accommodation you are after then defiantly book! It's clean, you get a large lounge/kitchen, separate bedroom, decent bathroom, and a huge balcony with a great sea view which gets the evening sun. The downsides were the kitchen doesn't include any kitchenware so if you do want to cook a meal yourself you can't. At some point in time this hotel has obviously been self catering. For us the cleaner forgot to clean our room one day too. We had been out all day so didn't bother asking them to clean it as we wanted to use it to get ready. Secondly the 'all inclusive' seems to include food, drink and the water park only. I've never been to an all inclusive before where so little was included. If you ask at reception whats included they don't explain well at all. I guess you get what you pay for, we chose this location because its so close to Puerto De Mogan, and we planned to eat there some nights as we heard great things about it from friends, I highly recommend a visit if you want a break from buffet food. We ate in the hotel on 4 of the 7 evenings and to be fair it wasn't bad. It does get very repetitive, but as far as buffet food goes you will find something. The freshly cooked food stations are a big bonus as I'm not the biggest fan of buffet food. One downside is very similar dishes appear on the main buffet at dinner, just looking a little less fresh. We usually made baguette sandwiches for lunch using there bread and ingredients which were tasty, perhaps though we should have had made the most of the buffet at lunch and had something lighter for dinner, so we caught the buffet at its freshest time. The real disappointment with the 'all inclusive' was the drinks. It was near impossible to get a wine glass with dinner, such a simple thing to fix, but they seemed to put out about 30 glasses, and not bother to refill them quickly after they were gone. We 'upgraded' to bottled wine most nights just so we could have a glass, however this was a palaver, as even though advertised everywhere the staff didn't seem to have a clue, and they didn't have most of the wines on the list. During the day you can only get soft drinks and alcohol from the pool bar. All of the spirits are watered down, about 4 parts water to 1 part alcohol and then they pour you a huge 3-4 shot measure, which ruins any drink as it tastes weird. If you pay for one of the premium spirits they pour you the same massive shot measure but it's not watered down and the drink is undrinkable as it tastes like you are drinking pure alcohol. The cava tastes like Perry and we found this undrinkable too. The cocktails came straight out of a machine from the 70's and one sip was enough for me. The only alcoholic drink that was included and tasted fine was the beer. They have a great bar by the entertainment area however no other bar opens until 6pm, so if you want any sort of drink during the day you have to sit by the pool and drink it out of a plastic cup. This is a real shame when they have the potential to open up two others which are great sun spots. All in all, drinks are disappointing and something they need to address and bring up-to the same standard as there food. I went presuming worst case scenario if food/drink was bad and we paid at the bar for the upgraded items this would remedy any problem, but this isn't the case. Lastly the facilities, the fact that you get to use there water park for free is great. However you will pay for everything in there. I assumed drinks were included, and the first time we used it they served us drinks for free from the "all inclusive" menu which was fine. The water park is owned by the same company that own most of the hotels including this one. On our second visit we were told the "all inclusive" wasn't valid with our wrist bands. The major downside to using the water park is the salt water. When I read other reviews prior to booking I didn't really care reading that it was salt water, however I should have. Using the slides you can't avoid getting water in your eyes, I presumed I had conjunctivitis after the first visit, it was only after they got better and the same thing happened after visiting later in the holiday that we put two and two together. Use the slides and you will get very sore eyes unless you rinse them out well afterwards. The evening entertainment was ok, however some of the shows really aren't suitable for children, I won't comment further on this as we only caught 2 shows. The hotel pool which is located on floor 1 is heated and perfectly adequate for a quick dip, although it did get busy at times. There also seems like a lot of other things to do, such as mini golf, tennis, an arcade with bowling however these are all pay extra attractions. All in all it was worth the money, they certainly have room for improvement, but you get what you pay for.More
