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 great waterparks, which it shares with the neighbouring Paradise Lago Taurito. It comes with loads of white-knuckle slides, plus plenty for smaller slides, 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.

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, all of the pools are saltwater, and 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.
With a kids' section.

Having been to its sister hotel last Christmas and new year, (lago paradise) we tried this one....travelling on the dates 17th Dec - 24th Dec... The hotel was clean, had a third floor room which was nice due to the kids.... Food was good, fresh salad, fresh food cooked for you. The pasta dishes weren't up to much.... It looked like they were short on staff during the week we stayed, the plates were stacking up on peoples tables. The snacks in the afternoon near the pool were very poor..Went down to the water park for a snack instead... The water park was empty due to the fact the water is freezing cold and is salt water, from last year to this year there seems the maintenance of the park has not changed..its getting a bit out of date. The staff are friendly. The maid was great, no early morning calls... We had a late flight, so we booked late check out till 6 which was perfect for us... Entertainment was ok, we knew what we were expecting..the kids enjoyed it... Be aware when you arrive you have to pay 3 Euros a day for the safe and a 10 euro desposit per person for pool towels. Overall a very good hotel..More
1 week is ok
Big rooms, good food, no entertainment. Entertainment is located outside 1 scene in the midle of the valley. And for children until 9-9.30, and then different shows. Taurito is for families with children. The entertainment is really noisy until about 11. We would not choose this destination again in december because it was to cold to bath in the water. Very few children was in the pools. And we prefer intimate entertainment. We looked foreward to exercise at the hotel with their equipment from Technogym (bikes etc), and got very disappointed because half our their equipment was out of order. I met one guy who said it had been like this the 3 last times he had been there. The food was excellent and varieted. I recommend other places than this in wintertime. Our goal was to learn a grandson to swim, but to cold for him an adults. More
A lovely Xmas
We had a lovely Xmas stay and wish to thank all the fantastic staff. The facility food and fun was spot on. We enjoyed the weather although was various. But everything was provided and of a high standard. So much so already planning on returning soon.More
Average family holiday
This is the first review we've ever written so here goes... First time in gran canaria, as a family, we always travel the same week every year (17-24th Dec) and have been to various places such as turkey, feuterventura, France.. firstly we found that the people of gran canaria who we met seamed to be fed up of tourists! Never felt this anywhere else but we felt like a nuisance, in the way and not wanted! The hotel was very clean & is smaller than the other hotels in the valley of Taurito but we liked that. The check in was swift and our room was welcoming, it was large & as all rooms had a fantastic view towards the ocean. The restaurant was also clean (apart from a few stains on chairs as previously mentioned) and the staff were very good at clearing and relaying the tables. The food was a bit repetitive however beautifully presented and always looked fresh particularly the salads, fruits & seafood/fish. The snacks in between at pool bar were tired (left over) looking however we didn't eat them as three meals a day was enough! The water park was a great added feature for us as our children loved it! It was cold but didn't seam to bother them one bit! Again staff at water park were not friendly at all and the 'all inclusive' offering was poor, had to pay extra for a coffee!!! The hotel was also not totally 'all inclusive' as sold by thomson back home, you had to pay for safe (daily charge of 3 euros), beach towels & some drinks including fruit juices/smoothies. I've never stayed at a 4 star all inclusive where there are so many things not included. This is probably the biggest reason for the mark down. Taurito itself is small but enough going on for us. We definitely had rest and relaxation here.. Porto Mogan, the next valley over is well worth a visit, it's beautiful with a bit more going on in terms of shops & bars, the beach and port is very nice too. We wouldn't come to gran canaria again based on the overall cost of our holiday and the welcome from its residents but enjoyed our holiday away nonetheless. The weather during the our stay was good, take a jacket for the evening, it gets chilly this time of year... More
really nice hotel
really good hotel and very nice and kind staff. But if you have an all inclusive package, and the bar closes at 1am, then the all inclusive shouldenÂ´t stop at 11pm. the best thing at my vacation, was the animation team (Paula and "The Rock) But i hope that the hotel would give some money for a new dartboard and darts. One request is that the animation team will make a facebook page, where they can put the day/weeks schedule up on what activities that will be and pictures and profile info on everyone on the animation team, so we know there names, where they are from and whice langues they speak (and maybe if they a looking for new/ekstra people on the animation team). And people would be able to upload their pictures they have taken during the vacation.More
