Hotel Paradise Lago Taurito  

With a beachfront location and its own waterpark, the Hotel Paradise Lago Taurito puts everything at your fingertips.

Pulled up right against beach, the Hotel Paradise Lago Taurito has clinched one of the best spots in town. And if you want to explore, the centre of Puerto Rico is less than ten minutes away in a taxi.

The main talking point is the pool scene. Not only does the hotel offer up a big pool, waterpark and a couple of children’s splash pools – it’s also footsteps from the watersports-friendly beach.

Great holiday

We went as a family of 8. 5 adults 3 kids. 3 rooms. 14th till 23rd july. When we arrived it was round about 11pm check in went quick and they gave us a packed lunch and bottled water. We had a double room on 6th floor it was a nice room. big double balcony the view was great looking over everythink. The waterpark and out to sea. Had maid service everyday part from sundays. Towels changed wen u put them in the bath. Pool was abit small but didnt bother us much. If want a sun bed by pool you gota go down about 7am to put ur towel down. Pool bar good. self serv for soft drinks and u gota cue and wait for beer and spirts to be served by barmaid. Snacks was burgers, hotdogs and toasties at pool bar. Only thing what let the whole hotel down was the food. To much fish dishes and same stuff every day mayby one item change if lucky. Pizzas were the best there. Waterpark is good gets busy at weekends saltwater didnt bother us. Beach is nice.black sand. Loads of water sports on there to do at a cost. All staff worked hard and never had a problem with any of them. h Entertainment bit cheesey but kids liked it.theres a arcade, crazy golf and other stuff at 3euros eachEverythink closes at 11pm. Did enjoy are stay here and loved gran canaria.More

Mike D,

Don't get ripped off

We have just returned from holiday with jet2 on an all inclusive. We were very disappointed with the value we got for the price we paid. We paid extra for superior rooms to find out this means your room is on an higher floor so have a better view of the pool nothing more,then speak to people on same floor with same view only paid for standard. Advice save your money. Everywhere closed at 11o clock sharp so cannot get a drink or food or go anywhere after this time. Food although plenty and usually well cooked is the same most days great if you eat meat balls,pasta,and pizza. You can only order three things at a time either food or drink and will normally have to stand in line. Not great if you go with your family. Hotel clean staff friendly just don't waste money on upgrades. Smith familyMore

First ever bad review

Stayed here from 2nd July to 12th July. Arrived about 10.30pm and was given a packed lunch and bottle of water, dumped our cases in room and headed to the bar before it closed at 11pm. I have to say I was impressed by the room and its cleanliness (room 212) and view was great. BAD POINTS: Most of the staff were not very friendly apart from the staff at pool bar and arena bar. Food was very repetitive and I don't mean on a weekly basis I mean on a daily basis, you'll be fine if you like pizza and chips! Pool was not big enough to accommodate all the guests and far too many inflatables. There was not one sun lounger to be had after 7.30am, we even witnessed people putting towels out as early as 5.30am although there is a sign saying you cannot reserve sunbeds the staff did nothing about it. Seating at the entertainment was hard picnic benches which were extremely uncomfortable. You needed to get a seat by 7pm as all 3 hotels shared the same entertainment, also be careful that you don't leave your seats at the same time or your table will be overtaken by someone else (usually Germans). Be aware of the lady in the booth by the perfume shop, she will tell you that you can have a free excursion if you go on a trip to visit another hotel, when you get there they will try to sell you timeshares and you can't get away, if you want to go on any excursions book with your rep unless you travel with Jet2 who don't do it but you can book with Thomas Cook. Although we did not have anything taken ourselves there were quite a few people who had rings, bags, i-pads go missing and always on the day before they were leaving so they could not do anything about it, I must also point out that reception will not be bothered and in fact they were in on one of the thefts. Waterpark was ok but very salty water and you have to pay for food and drinks which is a bit of a rip off when you're all inclusive. GOOD POINTS: Rooms were clean and spacious. Lots to do for the kids - arcade, ten pin bowling, trampolines, go karts and mini golf. Setting was amazing and a 2 minute stroll to the beach. Animation team were amazing and always had time to stop and chat especially Gonzalas and Bibi. Entertainment was good and a great laugh at times. Take a visit to Mogan it's a beautiful place with white beach and designer shops, it will cost you around €6. I must say a special thank you to the people we met there for being so friendly, thanks to Maxine and Adam, Michelle, Andy, Jack, Becka, Matt, Skye and Amber, Clare, Tommo and LJ. Hope you are all well. It's a shame because the hotel and setting were lovely it's just the rest of it, sorry but won't be returning.More

Not that good would think twice

Hi We stayed here with my friends. Two families of 4. In general it is what you would expect from a 3 star hotel fairly clean but not overly. We did ask for 1 of our rooms to be changed as we felt it was a bit poor quality. Which they did with not too much trouble. Food ok, but not too special good variety. Room service not great, they do not come on Sunday's, Just make the bed from what I can tell and do not like giving you new towels even when old ones are dirty. Don't like sweeping the room ever judging by the amount of hair on the floor. Staff friendly enough like anywhere some more than others. Pool very small you will not get a sun bed near it, as its like sun bed wars with people having their towels down all day even when they are not there for most of it. And unless you get up at 5am forget it. The water park I went there twice found it to be not great slides have seen a lot better days. Most of the people there seem to have payed to get in. I found them a bit rude, children pushing in on the slides and little thought to who was swimming around them. Wifi dismal, it is 2016, really should be able to get it in your room and not have to sit in reception to get half a Meg. More

David T,

Worst all inclusive hotel ever!!

We are just back from 2 weeks at this resort and my advice is don't book it! In our party was 2 adults an 8 year old and a 23 mth old ! Where to start....... The room! We asked to book the best rooms the hotel had we was put on the 7 th floor with two beds pushed together to make a double and a single bed no bath which I requested and was a big issue(jet2 rep very unhelpful) the stink from the bathroom drains daily was bad the balcony was not too safe as my son could crawl under it ! The bathroom was dated and in need of work ! Mini bar in the room never kept my sons milk in went off within a day ! No remote for tv as you need to pay a charge for this as well as for beach towels and irons ! Our duvet cover never got changed once in 2.weeks even though the kids got it a bit dirty I'm not sure how often our sheets or towels got changed ! The cleaner always left our balcony door unlocked or sometimes ajar !! Aren't we always told to keep your door locked etc when your out anybody could of balcony hopped and got in !The air con was terrible we reported it twice as it was cooler on our balcony at night ! Even around the hotel the air con was non existent they have ac units around reception etc but they are always off ! We was also told by our rep that all room had the same aminieties another lie as some rooms had baths some had loungers others had own living room etc ! She also told us our room was a superior room but that all that means is that it's above the 4 th floor ! I've never heard such rubbish in all my life !! That about covers the rooms ! Now don't bother with buying the extra drinks package for the water park ! We did and it's a total con unless your going to eat and drink lots there which you won't it's not worth it ! My kids hated the park as it was far more salty than the sea and hardly any suitable toddler bits ! Plus you still have to pay a euro for a slushy in fact this is the first ever all inclusive resort I've been to where everything costs etc from certain cocktails to ice lolly pops to parasols in waterpark toilet on resort beach it's basically a resort designed to rip you off as there is nowhere near by in walking distant to compete ! Then there is a nice chill out bar that's sells lovely cocktails etc and we was told because we have all inclusive bands we would get a 25 percent discount ! We was still 40 euro for 2 cocktails a milkshake and a water !! My husband needed ibrufen so he went to the resort chemist who said we have a similar pill all our meds are natural 13 euros later and he took two pills that did nothing! So we hired a car from the spaininsh car hire next to the mini market he is much cheaper than the one over the road ! We found a Spanish chemist got the pills for 3 euro and they 4 times the strength that you can buy here even !! Also with the car we went to the spar a lot which was half the price of the on site shops !! Now to the food ! Disgusting !!! The salads and things all look great until you taste them most of the food was tasteless or not cooked right ! We ate out 9 days out of 14 my daughter lived on pizza and chips the only things they could cook right o and pasta ! The fruit was old and bruised most of the time etc the cut up melon which my son lived on ! They even had chips out at breakfast !! I saw little beasties crawling around the bread and the grated cheese !! I stupidly ate a burger on my last night which tasted ok but I was really ill for the next 24 hrs !! I've been on many holidays including campsites but this is by far the worst food I've ever encountered ! My husband saw the chef use the same tongs to cook the chicken with and then to pick the raw chicken up with !! The is the first 3 star we have been to we normally go 4 or 5 which are obviously a in a very different league if this is a standard 3 star ! We will never ever go 3 star again my advice is never drop a star pay the extra to go 4 or 5 as what we ended up paying on food etc we could of paid the extra but we thought the water park etc looked great for our kids that's why we chose this resort ! Huge mistake ! The disco tech they advertise was not open once in the 2 weeks !! Some of the staff are great while others are plain rude ! The pool bar lady refused to give my hubby a straw for my wee boys water as he can't manage a big cup yet my husband explained and she said no straws are only for slushies ! He said I'll buy a slushie or look here's a euro for a straw she point blank refused ! We did report her to the hotel and they said she should of absolutely have given my boy a straw ! There are certain rules around the hotel which no one follows and there are no dress codes to eat etc it appears anything goes even if your dripping wet in a pair o speedo's ! This is just the tip of the ice berg I could go on all day !! Gran canaria it's self was fab we went to the zoo to Sioux city Christopher Columbus house a few beaches and toured about with the car but be warned there are few parking spaces at the hotel that are free ! They expect their guests to pay 5 euro pay day to park which we never as if your patient and are prepared to wait you will get a space ! We found after 6 pm you can usually get one . The weekends are more busy as a lot of locals come to use the resort beach and waterpark so ques for slides etc are huge ! I would not recomend this hotel to anyone and wasn't overly happy with jet2 in resort help also the first time we have gone jet2 ! Never been so glad to pack and leave a hotel ever ! Even my daughter who is usually upset to leave was singing and dancing her way on to the transfer bus !!More
