Paradise Valle Taurito

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.

Onsite waterpark

This onsite waterpark packs a punch. Set in to the mountains, you'll be able to whizz down the speedy Kamikaze, take a drop in the Space Bowl or let the kids loose on the Pirate Ship feature with a handful of mini-slides.

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. When you do have time to relax, parasols are available at a charge.


The hotel runs this for ages 4-12 years.

Outdoor pool

With a kids' section.

Great holiday, hotel very clean and staff amazing!

We arrived home yesterday from a party of 12, 8 children aged between 5-13 and 4 adults. The hotel is really clean and the staff very hard working and friendly. The kids loved the pool but be careful it's very slippery around the edge. As previous reviews state there was a rush for sun beds in the morning as they do not allow you to put towels down until 9am but the days we had no subbed there was always chairs available and we also used lilos we had bought. just to let you know it was not made clear to us you could not use lilos or inflatables in the pool until we went and bought them for all 8 of the kids (expensive) but at least we had our own sun beds! The food was outstanding and great variety, there was even a little bar for young children to get their own food, my 5yr old loved that. evening entertainment is based outside the hotel between this one and the lago taurito and there was not enough space for 2hotels but we spent most nights in the hotel with the kids playing pool (at a charge of €1 per game). Overall great holiday with some great excursions on offer, we did the combo camel ride, jeep safari and dolphin search. if you do this ensure you have no medical conditions as this was not asked and certainly not mentioned prior to booking but the jeep safari is very bumpy, great fun though, the Dolphins search was scary as the waves were so big the water came pouring onto the boat and scared not only the children but also the adults. still not sure if that was meant to happen or not. I would definitely return for a very relaxing family holiday in a clean hotel with very big rooms comfortable and affordable with great food.More

Joanne B,

Excellent stay at Valle Taurito

I have just got back from my 1week holiday in early August 2015. My family had a great time, and only wish that we had booked to stay for 2 weeks instead of 1. I went with my husband and 5 year old daughter. We enjoyed the waterpark and found that there was plenty of sunbeds available despite it being in peak season. Queues for the water slides were also quite short. My 5 year old daughter is a very confident swimmer and most of the time was allowed on the bigger water slides, despite the height restriction of 120cm. (There was only one lifeguard who would refuse her to go on, but the others were fine). The food at the hotel wasn't too bad. I am a vegetarian, but still found plenty of choices. There was always a very good selection of fresh fruit and salad. My daughter is extremely fussy with food, so did find it more difficult, however there was always pizza and pasta for children. The beach is a very short walk from the hotel, although the waves did seem rather choppy when we stayed, but we still had plenty of fun doing some of the water sports such as the banana boat rides. We booked a dolphin trip from the water sports shop by the beach. The trip was amazing and we saw plenty of dolphins. It was the highlight of the holiday for my daughter. The evening entertainment at the hotel was not great. My daughter enjoyed the minidisco from 8 to 9 pm, but the main shows starting at 9.30 pm were not great. Finding a seat for the entertainment was also an issue. Tables and chairs were all taken up by 7.30ish. With dinner at the hotel not starting until 7pm, this made is almost impossible to get a seat. We would return to this resort and enjoyed our stay.More

Just returned from 2 week family holiday

Hotel is lovely, so are the staff. Rooms are of a good standard and very clean. Only problem was the pool area, where quest put their towels on the sunbeds around 8.30 am, on every sunbed around the pool, and then go off to breakfast or back to bed. These sunbeds are not usually used then until about 11.00am. This pool is supposed to open at 09.00, but by this time you do not stand a chance of getting a bed. The water park is right next to the hotel which is very nice, except the toilets, but you have to pay for the cushions to go on the sunbeds and the umbrellas, which over of course of 2 weeks for a family of 6 became very expensive. The beach is close by and quite good, but again you are paying for the beds and umbrellas.More

Not a 4 star

We do not consider this to be a true four star hotel nor do we regard the Thomson 4T rating as helpful. We regarded the hotel as overpriced. It fell well short of the experience we had of other all inclusive hotels which cost the same. We gained the impression that, whilst the hotel just about qualified as all inclusive, there was a constant emphasis on cost saving. For example, we were astonished to discover that the hotel provided only one small bottle of drinking water per person per week which we were expected to refill at the bar. Other all inclusive hotels we have visited have stocked the mini bar with a selection of drinks on a daily basis. The selection of all inclusive drinks was limited; the house wine was of poor quality and the choice of only 3 alcoholic cocktails were splashed out of large pre mixed polystyrene containers into plastic cups. To use the room safe is extra (24 euros for the week) and a 10 euro deposit on each beach towel is required. Reception insists on cash only for this. The hotel pool is too small, which then leads to a lack of space for sunbeds and the farcical display of guests queuing at 8.30am and then running to place their towels. Having to queue every day at the waterpark to pay 2 euros for a sun parasol was a constant irritation in an 'all inclusive' hotel. The gym gives the impression that there is no maintenance contract and consequently the equipment is looking rather tired. When we visited there was no air conditioning in the gym but the doors were left open. I don't know if this was because the air conditioning had broken down or had been turned off to save money. The food was good and tasty albeit served in a quite simple canteen set up. Although the hotel published a dress code, it was never followed and it did give a misleading impression. There are no porters to help with luggage or any staff to serve a drink unlike other all inclusive hotels we have been to which cost the same. You queue up at the bar where you are allowed to order two drinks at a time, and don't even think about being served any nibbles, you are lucky if your drink is served in a proper glass. The rooms are very spacious and have a pleasant view. The maids do a good job. The pool games that we witnessed were woeful, ie throw a hula hoop around a bar stool and then jump in the pool if you were unsuccessful. During a week's stay, we didn't see any entertainment in the hotel. The only entertainment is provided in the Arena Plaza which is shared by several other hotels. There, all drinks are served in plastic cups and there is not much chance of getting a table unless you are seated by 7pm. We requested a meeting with the manager, although received no response. We did, however, discuss our feelings with other guests who shared our views.More

Not enough sun beds.

Myself, partner, 5 year old and 7 year old came here for a two week stay, first time abroad for them. The staff are lovely. The rooms and the hotel and restaurant are very clean. However as stated in the reply to previous review - sunbeds cannot be reserved by putting a towel on them. This is not the case at all. Every morning people line up from 7.30am ready for staff to open the pool, where everyone runs to put towels on sunbeds around the pool- I bet they are doing it even now. There are not enough sunbeds for the amount of people that are in the hotel. I noticed some people getting sunbeds at 9am and then they would go out on day trips and not return till 1-2pm and the beds were not in use this isn't fair. There should be a better system where staff let 5 in at a time to get beds because before long there will be a fight or an accident. On one occasion my son age 7 was pushed by an adult- yes an adult to get a sunbed. The main pool is very deep, but the baby pool is for toddlers. Nothing in-between for children age 5-10. As for the water park it is extremely salty my children went to it once with goggles and didn't want to go again. This hotel was lovely just a shame about the sunbeds situation as this is a big put off for us to return as children want to be in the water on holiday the majority of the time.More
