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.

Gran Canaria 2014

We stayed at the Paradise Lago Taurito in July this year, although we were a bit hesitant after reading some of the reviews. However, on arrival about 23.00 hours we found that a selection of food was available, and the rooms, although a bit dated were fine with nice large balconies. We found all the staff friendly and helpful, especially in reception. Although it was very busy, the staff coped very well and nothing was too much trouble. We had no problem with the food, a wide choice which I would say catered for all tastes. The grand-daughter really enjoyed the water park - we spent several days there. For a good value for money holiday it would be hard to beat. The only down side was the shortage of sun-beds by the hotel pool - although the area was a bit small to add more, however there were adequate at the water park.More

Ken K,

Great place for family's

Awesome place . My 2 yr old loved it but wouldn't eat from the hotel as there wasn't much of a choice for a fussy eater so she had food from the beach front . The only thing I was disappointed with was the woman that owns the shop that dose pictures on canvases we paid her on wensday night for a canvas and told her we were going home Friday morning , she said no problem I will drop it off at your hotel 9pm Thursday we waited&waited she never turned up the hotel tried to call her but she never answered so if you plan on having anything done by her don't pay till u get it . Overall the holiday was great . Lovely if you want a quiet holiday it's in the middle of nowhere . Would deffo come again xx More

Saracracs,

Lovely place to stay

We stayed here last week. It was lovely and clean, the staff were very friendly and polite. Food was good. The lock on our door broke and within 1 hour it was fixed and sorted, very impressed. Someone mentioned about the pool being small for the hotel. It is a small pool but there is a massive water park right outside the front door of the hotel, so the pool I feel is about right. It was a beautiful and friendly place to stay. The only down side was that there wasn't really anywhere to go for a decent walk if you wanted one. Other than that a lovely place to stay with good food choice and friendly staff.More

Pleasantly surprised

Please remember this is a 3* hotel. Having not stayed in a 3* for some years and reading the mixed reviews I was a tad anxious about the holiday. But we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is situated in a small valley along with a handful of other hotels and waterpark in the centre. The area is largely pedestrianised with a small market visiting one or two nights per week and small local shops for water, sun creams, souvenirs etc. there is also mini golf and amusement arcade for children. We travelled with Thomas Cook and from landing at the airport to arrival at resort was almost 3hrs but this was due to a disorganised tour rep. Buses stop at a central roundabout and it is then a short walk to the hotel reception. On leaving the bus I took my son to the side of the road (as I didn't want to stand in the middle of the road with a child) whilst the suitcases were being offloaded, the Thomas Cook tour rep easily got frustrated at my actions, gave me no chance to explain and started to march us to reception then said oh it's that way but I'm sure you'll find it! I can't say this impressed us. However, once at the reception the hotel staff were welcoming, helpful and quick. Our room was lovely, kept very clean and only the shower area was in need of some attention, the rest of the room appeared recently painted and all beds had clean mattresses etc. (we were on the 8th floor and never had long to wait for lifts). Yes, a deposit is required for the TV remote and the safe is around €3 per day plus key deposit if required. We found all staff to be very welcoming and helpful. The main areas of the hotel were kept very clean and tidy and to say we went at the end of a busy summer period it was all in relatively good condition. There was lots of ongoing work to update and freshen the place up but none of it disturbed day to day life at the hotel. The restaurant served good fresh and hot food and there was always good British staples on offer such as: chips, potatoes, pasta, pizza and rice. I found the vegetables, salad and fruit very fresh and the bread and pastries delicious. My fussy 8 yr old always left with a full tummy! Drinks are plentiful but you need to help yourself (which isn't always a bad thing). It being 3* it was nice to be able to go in for lunch without having to get changed, and as long as you were covered up it was fine. I must make a mention of the restaurant manager, he was always on hand, checking every little detail and ensuring everything was running smoothly. The bars were all good, the evening staff worked extremely hard ensuring no one waited too long for drinks. The evening entertainment was a little hit and miss but all good fun. The evening seating area did get very busy, so I guess most people really enjoyed the entertainment. The waterpark is salt water but really it's no worse than chlorinated water, just remember it strips sunscreen quicker though. There is lots to do in the waterpark and we went there everyday. It's is included in the price of the holiday, sunbeds are free, parasols are €2 per day but the are lots of palms around if you need shade and don't want to pay. Food and drink in the water park is not included but we just took water in (70c from local supermarket), and walked the 2 mins back to the hotel for lunch. Even the toilets and showers in the park are constantly cleaned. You can get towels from the hotel, again a deposit is required and small daily fee, we took our own though. The hotel pool tends to be very busy with children and the area around the pool packed with families but just up a few steps there is a jacuzzi area and it is much quieter. We never partook of the morning sunbed rush and tended to go to the pool area late afternoon but both in the waterpark and at the pool we always managed to find sunbeds. We really enjoyed our holiday and would definitely recommend this resort and this hotel, all the staff worked tirelessly to keep the hotel and waterpark clean, tidy and safe and to make sure everyone had a lovely holiday. The only slight downside would be the very small number of holiday makers that can't be bothered to throw litter in bins, clear up their rubbish and generally leaving a wake of mess behind them, thus treating the hotel staff with little respect, thankfully they are the few.More

Love this place

In oct it will be our third stay here and we enjoy ourselves as much this year as we have previous years we will be back next year.last year there was a small fire at the hotel we had to vacate our room in the early hours and the staff were brilliant they kept us informed at all times and we was back in our room within two hours and when we got up in the morning you would never of guessed there had been a fire the night before . I'm a very fussy eater but there was always something there every meal time that I liked. Staff are lovely,entertainers are great our boy is 6 and he loved the children's entertainment. Water park is brill we spend all day every day in there. Bar staff are great always happy Rooms are a bit dated but very clean and tidy All in all we love this place do not listen to negative comments because it's either people wanting to moan to get a free holiday or it's people who pay for 3 star but want 5 star after the fire insident last year people was on here saying things like hotel from hell I saw my life flash before my the flames were everywhere truth is the only people who saw flames were the firefighters all guests saw was a little smoke so don't be put off try this hotel out and see for yourselfMore
