We have just returned from a weeks holiday here. After reading previous reviews I was slightly worried but I have to say, we have had a fantastic time!! The food was good, rooms were clean, staff were friendly and helpful, this is a perfect holiday for families with children, so much for them to do and the water park right on the door step which you have access to!! I think the bad reviews are from people just looking for something to moan about!! I haven't got a bad thing to say apart from we didn't want to come home!! More
Second visit and it did not disappoint, another amazing holiday
We returned to Taurito for the second time and have had the most amazing holiday. The animation team are all amazing and work extremely hard, especially GonÃ§alo, the best Aladin on the island!!!! Also need to mention tall Marco, chief entertainer extraordinaire, Hannah, Bibi, Monika and Carolina, always full of energy and Ivanna always smiling. They made this experience special for all 8 members of our party.
The hotel offers excellent value, comfortable spacious rooms and great food. Others have mentioned that the rooms are in need of an update but they are adequate and cleaned most days, with everything needed for your stay. Please bear in mind that you will spend very little time in your room as the hotel and location offer so much more.
We found the food was even better this time with plenty of choice to please everyone. With a little thought, we had a different meal each night. The restaurant staff are great, polite and friendly and non intrusive but on hand if anything is needed. The chef is more than happy to try to accommodate special dietary needs.
The pool may be a little small for the size of the hotel but this does not matter as the water park is included. This is a salt water lagoon so don't forget your goggles! Every fortnight the animation team host the most amazing splash and foam party. GonÃ§alo was a brilliant host, just missing his coconuts to match his grass skirt! and it gave Lukas a chance to show off his moves!
A holiday is what you make it. You can spend your days sat around the pool indulging in Constantin's cocktails (don't forget to ask for his Bob Marley special - it's the best!) which he always makes with a smile and a song but I would urge you to get involved with the daily activies. There is something for everyone, mini club, water polo, archery, cocktail games, etc. The animation team put their all into everything they do.
We will be returning again and can't wait !More
Food is a nightmare. And Spanish bug all over the hotel
Let's first start with how amazing this holiday complex is. Hotel is stunning. Entertainment team are out of this world. Staff very friendly. Now let's get to the Food.
The reviews I read about the food before I went were all spot on. It has to be the worst place in the world for food. It is the same day in day out. The chance of food poisoning is very very high. There is no restaurant other than the one in the hotel. Which I wouldn't recommend unless you have a Â£150 euros for the doctor. To eat out you either have to go to Puerto Mogan or Puerto Rico which is a taxi ride away. Now me and my family have had what is known as the Spanish bug. It's everywhere in this hotel. I've seen so many other families coming down with it too. My son was sick in reception and I told the staff. Only after 2 hours did someone come and clean up his sick. To go to this hotel will be like putting your life in danger. They need to sort out the food and the Spanish bug before it claims someone lifeMore
Family holiday JUNE 16
Returned from this hotel on Wednesday 22 June. Overall thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. The hotel is a 3star and no more the bedrooms need upgrading and the bathroom was tired looking. The restaurant provided a good choice of food however I would strongly suggest you check all chicken. On more than one occasion we had to return uncooked chicken and the children's chicken nuggets were still raw. The fish dishes were excellent quality.
The family area in the restaurant is appalling, tables for four people are pushed together so families of six or more cannot sit together comfortably. They are pushed together with no option to sit on the edges so the middle person is left balancing their plate across two tables.
We attempted to move two tables close to the entrance of the restaurant and were faced by a torrent of abuse from a male waiter who snatched up the cutlery we had set and shouted we were not allowed to do this. We were left embarrassed and humiliated by his overbearing attitude. Our four yr old grandson was left in tears and each time we went into the restaurant he became upset about the man who shouted at us.
There are no signs to indicate moving tables is not allowed ant the excuse that the waiter/waitress would have too many plates to move just didn't make sense. There would have been only six instead of eight. The waiter swore at my son and threw is name badge at him when asked his name.
Access to the water park was included in our package and the 8 and 4 yr olds of our party loved the pools and slides.
The beach area is clean and there is a cafe providing very good quality food and hot coffee.
The entertainment team at the hotel were great in particular Gonzalo who went out of his way to be friendly.
The staff in the amusement arcade were fantastic, very friendly and Andy in particular was great with the children on the trampolinesMore
Perfect family holiday
Cannot fault this hotel, food was amazing with fresh fish daily, kids are still talking about the food now, everyone was pleased with plenty of choice.
The rooms where clean and spacious, balcony was a great place to get away from the hustle and large enough for us to relax and sunbathe on.
Entertainment was great something for everyone, kids loved it.
Waterpark is an added bonus, the hotel pool is small but having the waterpark meant we could go for a good swim when the hotel pool was busy. Beach was well watched by lifeguards who ensured safety.
Fantastic value for moneyMore
