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.

3 star Hotel but a 4 star holiday
Just returned from 10 days all inclusive in this resort hotel and though it earns no more than 3 stars in terms of the tired decor of the room we were more than happy with all other aspects. The hotel is very large and was busy but easily serviced by the 4 lifts available. Our room was a family room located on the 3rd floor and directly overlooking the water park. As stated the room was tired and in need of updating and some minor redecoration but provided us with an air conditioned, spacious suite comprising of double bedroom, kitchen area with microwave, fridge, sink and oven and a through lounge with breakfast bar and furniture, the couch made up as another double bed for our 14 year old daughter. Both lounge and bedroom had french sliding doors onto a large balcony with furniture, the doors having blackout curtains and curtains keeping the room cool and dark in the early mornings. The bathroom was separate with shower over the bath, washbasin, large mirror, hair dryer and bidet but it was here that the tiredness of the upkeep kicked in. Missing the seal at the bottom of the shower screen left the bathroom floor very wet and slippery at the first use. The washbasin lighting was missing a working bulb in one of the three downlighters and the shower, though good was attached to the taps by one of those dated chrome snake like hoses. Rooms cleaned daily except Sundays with a change of linnen every Monday and towels daily. The dining room was large with access from the hotel or promenade and the choice of hot or cold food for every meal would surely find something for every taste and pallete. Wine and beer was serve yourself from the pumps as were the soft drinks but at peak times there could be a search for a table inside or out. Similarly cutlery which though replaced fairly regularly could run out and leave you waiting several minutes, get your cutlery for all your courses at the start of your meal. Hotel pool was fresh water and though looked small there seemed always room for play or a short swim, some water activities were organised here by the entertainment staff at prescribed times. Alternatively the huge water park provided a huge salt water (very salty) pool with free entry for all inclusive and use of the sunbeds. Drinks and snacks can be bought there but most hotel users returned for meals or brought in their own snacks and free drink from the hotel. The beach is a short walk away, not a large beach but with beds and brollies to hire. Again the sea is very salty and can leave your mouth dry and eyes stinging though goggles are cheap enough from any amount of the small shops. The area has a mini market (leave large bags in a locker on entry 1 returnable euro), there are plenty of beachwear items and accessories, souvenirs and I would recommend the perfumery up the slight wooden incline after leaving the restaurant to the promenade. I bought a 100ml bottle of genuine eau de toilette for half the cost in UK (I checked the price and QR code first)! Children are children and can be noisy and sometimes naughty if not supervised so some of that is inevitable, however it did not spoil any of our experience inside or outside the hotel. Staff and entertainers we found to be helpful (it helps to approach them as you would like them to deal with you courteously and patiently). The evening entertainment was acceptable though jugglers and magic did not thrill. Mostly though it was the hotel entertainers putting on a show with pre-recorded backing from live theatre hits. As the entertainment plaza catered for 3 hotels in the group, securing a table by 8:00pm is advisable. Wifi - hit and miss dependant on location and perhaps not worth the €25 per week as the free is sometimes a stronger signal. Altogether we had a great holiday and did a couple of excursions including the dolphin and turtle watching. A real hotel for families with several generations on holiday together. If you are going for luxury pay more and go elsewhere but this hotel provided as much as we could expect in most areas and more in some. Thoroughly good time and would hope to return.More
Fantastic family holiday
We just returned on Saturday from a 14 night stay, 2 family's with 5 kids ranging from 17 to 5. We stayed here 5 years ago and it was just as good now, could not fault it at all. The kids had a great time, adults had a great time and the food was lovely with plenty to choose from. We went down at 6.30am to put towels out and always got sunbeds but I think you would struggle if you went out much later. Animation team were all great with my 5 year old daughter and she loved seeing them every day and they always made time for her. Only thing I could grumble about was the bar service at both pool bar and main bar in the evening. Not enough staff and the queue could be quite lengthy at time, especially as there was only one guy serving at the pool bar during the day.More

After reading other reviews before leaving, I started to worry about our holiday. However, there was no need to worry at all. Hotel was lovely, hotel pool a little small for size of hotel, but that didn't bother us as we had full use of the water park. Food was good and varied and both day and evening entertainment were good. I would definatley visit again.More
Overall a decent 3 star, as with all 3star hotels some good and bad points. The bad with this are, 1. Rooms dated and need refurbishing 2. No cutlery/kettle in bedroomed apartments 3. As with most all inclusive not enough bar staff 4. Stupid 2 drink only rule 5. Small pool 6. Water park not all inclusive 7. Poor entertainment in evenings 8. Seating around entertainment area very basic and not family friendly 9. Size of glasses /plastic cups for drinks very small and poor, after spending thousands you feel as if on restrictions 10. Snack choices very poor and quality not good 11. Restaurant tables wobbley when eating Good points 1. Room maids very good 2. Rooms quite big with very good balcony 3. Food in restaurant for lunch and dinner very good 4. Restaurant staff ver y good 5. As I write no real problem with sunbeds and silly o clock 6. Water park adequate 7. Beach nice and keeps kids entertained with water sports 8. Overall most staff pleasent 9. Not really come acrosss any bad temperad or mannered holiday makers 10. Nice a quiet after 11am We find a holiday is what you make it, ok this place is not the top hotel and certainly will need a overall in next few years to keep up with standards but all the basic family needs seem to be met and glad at the moment all the negative comments must be from those who clearly don't do the research or expect far to much for what they have paid.More
I would not stay at this hotel again food was poor and mould on the food. Didn't get any sleep most nights as there was fighting nearly every night from la bamba. My partner got hit on the head on our balcony due to the person above throwing big rocks and mud. There was a power cut for an hour we're couldn't get no drinks. After 9.30 there's no where to get food as the Only shop on the resort is shut. Found some bar staff very rude at the entertainment the one guy at the pool bar who is lovely was overworked and was on his own every day resulting in having to wait ages for drinks. There was construction work which was an eye sore. People leaving towels on the sun beds over night. We was having to eat out most of the time even tho we paid for all inclusive. This hotel and service was poor we would not return here didn't tick many boxes for us the only thing that was nice was the sea view. More
