You’re only a minute’s walk from the beach at this place – but if you’re staying put, there’s a huge pool and a no-holds-barred waterpark to keep you busy.
This place is home to one of Gran Canaria’s biggest waterparks, which it shares with the neighbouring Paradise Lago Taurito. It comes with loads of white-knuckle slides, plus plenty for smaller sliders, too.
The hotel’s highlights include its own pool, a smart buffet restaurant and huge, contemporary bedrooms. And when you fancy a session on the sand, Taurito Beach is practically on the doorstep.

Just so you know, you need to be at least 120cm tall to use the bigger slides here. The Pirate Ship and mini-slides have a minimum height restriction of 100cm.

Relax and enjoy the sun
We are a family of five people and stayed one week in Valle Taurito in February 2014. This was our first trip to Gran Canaria and our first all-inclusive holiday. What we expected to have on our holiday? Sunny days, easy going life, good food and some sport activities. What we got? Mostly all of these things. Taurito is a small place and valley in southern part of Grand Canaria. It is 40 kilometers from the airport and it took one hour by a public bus to get there (25 euros altogether). Bus stop is about 200 meters from the hotel. We had two double rooms, one with extra bed for our 11-year-old son. Rooms are modern, clean and nice and they have large balconies. Wifi and minibar are chargeable. For all-inclusive customers they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Also, bars at pool and entertainment area are included in a limited period of day. Food was delicious. In dinner they had couple times some special themes i.e. Mexican or Italian. That was nice. All-inclusive was much better than we expected and it was a good choice for a relaxing holiday. My only complaint was wine. That was terrible and I therefore preferred beer. Weather was very good in Taurito. It was 23-25 Celsius for the whole week. They say that this is one of the hottest spot not only in Gran Canaria but in the Canary Islands. We spent lot of time at the pool. That was nice and snacks and drinks were included. One day we went to the beach and itÂ´s was ok but quite small. If you want to have some activities there are several things to go. Our son liked the waterpark and teen girls went to the gym and both of these activities are free. Please note that there is sea water in the waterpark. We also played tennis and minigolf which cost 10 euros and four euros. We made a daytrip to Puerto Mogan by bus. ItÂ´s only five kilometers away. There you will find a market and many restaurants and bars. In harbor some of us took a submarine adventure. That was really nice experience. It lasted 40 minutes and cost 29 euros/person. Overall, we liked our stay and in our opinion Valle Taurito is a good choice if you want to relax and enjoy the sun and have good food. Could we come again to Valle Taurito? Yes. Shall we take all-inclusive another time? Absolutely. If you want try different restaurants every evening and walk along a beach promenade or do some shoppings then Taurito is probably not your place.More

Silly things make this not 4 star and spoil holiday
This a superbly built and located hotel. Also very clean however it seems to lack any soul. We paid more this year for our canary island all inclusive and were disappointed to find no fresh juice avallable anywhere on site. There is squas for breakfast and cartons of cordials to make cocktails. When one if the 3 or 4 ran out the batman said what do you expect me to do, mic by hand. Well I thought you are a batman! You couldn't even buy fresh juice at the bar. We had some amazing fresh monitors amde elsewhere as I like a good cocktail! I mentioned the juice to staff including management but they that is how it is. They do not put out cold milk for tea . You can get at the back of the restaurant or if you queue at the bar. Again I made a suggestion they have a jug out but it never happened. They wifi is extra to pay for and rubbish. The safe in your room costs 3 euros a day. To play crazy golf is 4 euro each and tennis 10 euros an hour plus hire of rackets. There is only one restaurant to eat in but the food I'd very good. One vegetarian I met said it was rubbish for her. The fish cooked each day I. Front of you was superb. The animation team around the pool are lovely and they did nice events from 11- 4. Sadly at night all entertainment is shared in an outside square so the atmosphere in the hotel is not great. A quiet drink around the pool in the pool bar is great though . The I water park is basic but does the job. Be warned it is salt water so some kids could not cope with their eyes! Wear goggles!! The bar is not included in your ai at the water park.The spa is lovely but again you have to pay extra to go in! I went in the morning as a family as they had a deal on. The room was great, the air conditioning noisy and barely worked , but the room was very big and kept very clean. as was the whole hotel. The resort is very small and we like this as we drove out each night. If they could sort out their drinks! Forgot to say wine I'd disgusting, and include more in the AI I would definitely recommend. Such a shame that are not bothered . I also agree with previous reviewers that they seem short staffed. Our evening waiter was so grumpy but rest of staff friendly. If you know all this in advance then you won't be disappointed. It really is a nice hotel.More
Super hotel, just don't expect great evening entertainment
Just returned from 1 week which overall was great but lacking in quality entertainment for a First Choice hotel. The hotel was spotless and each bedroom is huge (quite bare when there's only 2 of you!). The food is fantastic and of equal choice to other all inclusive hotels we've stayed at. We found the male bar staff a little ignorant and didn't serve people in order which was frustrating on more than one occasion. There should be a better system in place. Restaurant staff brilliant! The evening entertainment area was a huge disappoint to us. The entertainment team put on good shows, however we only saw 2 all week as we were not able to sit down for the other nights due to lack of chairs. The space is small and very poor for the amount of guests from the surrounding hotels. We heard that if you get there around 6pm then you can get a table with chairs. Ridiculous! We did see a cockroach one night by the bar but certainly disagree with other comments about there being loads. The swimming pool is fantastic and a real positive, especially as the water in the waterpark is sea water. Also, the 'all inclusive' isn't available within the waterpark. Great hotel, but not for families looking for everything and value for money.More

On the whole a great holiday
Had a week in August at this lovely, clean and modern hotel with our 7 year old daughter who thoroughly enjoyed spending the whole week in the pool. Staff were friendly and courteous, room was spacious and clean, food was good although our daughter struggled a little - probably no more than any other all inclusive buffet though. We didn't enjoy the waterpark as it was salt water but we loved being by the pool, where unfortunately there just aren't enough sun beds overlooking the pool but we managed by sitting at the pool bar tables most of the time - we could watch our daughter most of the time from there. In the evening, we enjoyed the entertainment and our daughter loved staying up until 10.30 then slept in until 10 the next morning - just in time for breakfast! No problem - room was cleaned later in the day and she could always eat at the pool bar area if she didn't fancy much for breakfast. We did have one significant complaint about the evening entertainment on one night. There was a 'Mr Universe' contest that included 5 blokes with nudity and a drinking game. The feel of the evening was totally unsuitable for young children even though there was the usual gathering of primary age children next to the stage. Really disappointed with this - we decided to leave and had to explain to our daughter what was wrong with the 'show'. We spoke to 2 other families the next day who had similar negative feelings and hope First Choice will take action to prevent further occurrences in the future - we did give feedback! There was no concern for personal safety and the whole resort was ideal for young families. My wife even lost her purse one day and found it had been handed-in at reception. On the whole a great holiday in the sun - thoroughly recommend but keep an eye on the evening entertainment if you have young children.More

Quality hotel but quiet resort
Enjoyed a week at Playa Taurito, you can't fault the quality of the hotel, modern spacious bedrooms overlooking the sea, nice pool and bar area. The gripe I would have is there just isn't enough staff particularly in the restaurant, probably 3 waiters at most running round trying to clean tables. That said the staff were very helpful, Ali in the bar does amazing magic tricks ! The food was average really as was the entertainment in the middle of the resort. Felt the Splashworld we went to last year was better, Estival Park Hotel La Pineda.More
