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 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.

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.
With a kids' section.
You’ll have partial views of the sea in these twin rooms. There’s a balcony for that extra bit of space outside. And you’ll have 1 extra bed in the bedroom for 1 adult or 2 children.
These twin rooms have a contemporary feel and are located next to the pool. Outside there’s a terrace for that bit of outside space. And you’ll have 1 sofa bed.

Just come back from spending 10 nights all inclusive at this hotel. Got to be honest glad I'm home! I have to start with the travel agent who sold us this holiday. Firstly we went and spoke to a travel agent who "had been there"......20 min transfer we were told, it's an hour. Plenty for the older teenagers to do I was told, everything stopped at 11.00pm except the hotel bar being open till one. The water park opposite which is part of the all inclusive is old and some of the slides are tapped up and scratch your back on the way down plus it's sea water.....sun beds are free but brollies are extra plus I've been told it gets really busy during the school holidays. We spent an hour there. The disco tech opposite opened sometimes but did not open till 00.00 and closed at 0200 hrs drinks not included (6 euro a go) nearest town Puerto Rico is 12 euro each way in a taxi as buses do not run that late. We were told it would not be busy, you struggled to get a sun bed after 8 am. We were told professional entertainment every night.....far from it. We were told we would have 3 proper beds in our room......one was a sofa bed. We paid Â£2600 for this holiday and one of us had a sofa bed for 10 nights! The weather was lovely, the location spot on, the hotel from the outside looks lovely, the animation team who organised sports for adults/ kids clubs and even entertainment at night, faultless. The issue for me is the four star rating....it's actually a 3. After 3 days of eating in the food hall you have seen it all. The staff work hard but the food is very average in fact by day 9 I was not eating there, nor were a lot of other families we spoke to. Chipped/ dirty cups...dirty glasses same foods. The room was ok (except sofa bed) but the bathroom needed updating. Had air con though. Toilets in the hotel itself were always smelly and mostly always blocked. So all in all would I come back.....no! Would I recommend it.......no! Too expensive for what it is. More
Selected hotel as wanted water park & went on reviews on here. Hotel is really nice, large rooms which are kept very clean, nice food and good variety. There were 6 of us and not one of us was ill or had upset stomachs for the 2 week stay. Pool area is nice although more sunbeds are needed, no shallow area in big pool, there is a small childrens pool for very young children. My children age 12 & 9 loved the water park, yes it does sting your eyes a bit because it's salt water but kids wear goggles anyway. With it being salt water it is warmer than the pool so that's a bonus. Lots of lifeguards at water park so very safe plus one on hotel pool side. Only downside at water park is no tea, coffee or cocktails just soft drinks, wine & beer, food is also limited so we always went back to hotel it is literally across the road and was safe to leave towels & swim stuff at the park. You can hire towels at 10â¬ each which is refundable & also shower gel is provided at hotel to cut down on luggage weight. The setting of the hotel is nice as its a small bay beach surrounded by about 5 hotels, arena plaza, mini golf & water park in centre and a few shops not all built up like Maspalomas. Trip to Puerto Mogan a small fishing village with lovely port area in taxi 7â¬ well worth going. Staff at hotel all pleasant & friendly.More
Stayed here June 2016 for 1 week with my partner and our 10 month old baby 3 more adults and 4 other children. I read somewhere that transfer is 50 minutes at most, it took us 1 hour and 30 minutes, we were the last drop off. We arrived around 8pm and quickly checked in, put our bags in our rooms. Rooms: Lovely and spacious, 2 twin beds, a desk with mirror and chair, table and chair in the corner & a cot for baby. Spacious balcony with table and 2 chairs. We had a beautiful view overlooking everything. Bathroom nice but could do with a bit of an update, the shower glass(curtain) is glued to the bath so cannot be move which was hard when bathing a baby but didn't bother us too much. towels changed daily. Rooms cleaned daily. TV in room...caters for Spanish and German unfortuntaley, with 1 or 2 English channels with are news channels. The cleaners did a fantastic job, you could hear them cleaning everyones room which is slightly annoying and they pull the beds out in order to change the bed sheets but the noise is horrendous especially when my baby was trying to nap.(At least we know they're cleaning i suppose). Water park: Situated inside the complex, used by all the paradice hotels. Free entery for All Inclusive people, but you stil need to pay for a parasol which was 3euro.The waterpark is open to locals on the weekend so absolutely full of spanish, they are really loud and drink lots of alcohol and quite rude, kept sitting on our towels and congrigating into groups around our chairs to have a conversation. Only went to the waterpark once on the sunday as we found out it was salt water, we're not a fan of salt water. Looks fun though, lots of slides. Pool in hotel: Lovely pool, couldn't fault it, little jacquzzi area at the back in the pool, probably quite small in peak seasons but it wasn't too busy in June. A small toddler pool at the back of the sunbeds, which older children were using - they couldve just used to big pool, unfortunately some parents were too busy sunbathing to notice what their children were doing. Pool area clean and tidy. Only moan would be some poor bugger has to put all the sunbeds back where they should be and they drag them which is quite noisey. Oh and people going down really early in the morning to put towels on the sunbeds. There is a chain that is locked but people easily just step over it, we never got towels around the pool as they were all gone by 7:30am.. My other family members had 2 seperate rooms from us and they both had problems with their doors, 1 wouldn't lock from the outside, you could shut the door but didnt need to key and could just push the door open, the other door (next door) card wouldn't work, apparently the batteries went in the door? for a day my mum had to go to reception every time she wanted to go in her room so someone could let her in, it was resolved in the end. Pool snacks weren't great if I'm honest, i've been to cheaper, 3 star hotels that have provided better snacks that have been there all day which. the snacks come and go and its just rolls with bits of cheese and ham and a few sweet treats. The ice cream was behind the bar and you had to ask for it. Would've been nice if the soft drinks machine was next to the snacks as sometimes was annoying waiting in the queue for a soft drink. Beers came in half pints or very small glasses in the dinner hall, would be nice just to have had a whole pint, saves me getting up constantly. Bottled water should've been provided, I think we spent over 100euro for the week just on bottled water, we know we cannot drink the tap water but to keep going over the shops to get water was annoying. Meals: I found plenty to get every day and night, even some of my family members are fussy and they still found something to eat. I like trying new foods so was nice for me. Lots of variety every night, different meats. Good choice of desserts and I loved the ice cream. Little childrens area at the back where they have their own choice of foods and they can watch a film. Entertainment: I think it was very small for the amount of hotels and people it caters for. We would get there at 8:30pm and could not get a seat, meaning we had to sit somewhere else and play with the cockroaches which was not fun. I can't really comment on the entertainment as I never really seen it. My nieces enjoyed it and would get up on stage and dance. Theres an arcade at the back with pool tables, air hockey and trampolines etc. All inclusive drinks go on till 11pm then you have to pay for them, but I think entertainment stops at 11pm anyway, and all balcony lights switch off too. Staff absolutely lovely, so friendly and the ladies in the resturant absolutely loved my little girl. They were very good at taking our plates and cleaning the tables, very helpful.More
I have been to Gran canaria a number of times as a single man,couple and family man, all holidays were for a different reason. This time was with my wife and son, I was very impressed on arrival to the hotel and almost immediately fealty at ease realising we had booked a decent hotel, like always I will give my pros and cons. PRO'S 1.Very clean. 2.Swimming pool is nice although could have done with being shallow at one end to allow children to play comfortably. 3.Good variety of food on all inclusive package, although sometimes meals seemed a bit confused. 4.good entertainment for the kids and family in day and evening although evening seemed a it repetative. 5.Staff always seemed very happy and polite, always happy to help. CONS 1.If you are coming away to relax this hotel is not the place as it is purely family oreintated, lots of screaming children at all times of the day which I feel could be down to bad parenting, I would also like it if hotel reception could advise late arriving new comer guests to respect people sleeping as a number of times we were woken by disruptive guests at early hours. 2.This advice would go to the management, I would suggest putting felt pads on the room furniture so guests are not rudely awaken by furniture being dragged across the floor by cleaners, because of this I did not manage to lay in past 9Am. 3.I have to say this and it may offend some but the fact is it is reality, for some unknown reason it seemed to attract a certain type of clientele that I would not really mingle with and they did happen to be from northern towns in The uk and with this brings a certain type of mentality and loudmouthishness which can be hard to tolerate at the best of times, a number of times I had to ask the language to be kept clean baring in mind their are lots of children around and also late at night they don't seem to know how to respect other people's peace and quiet. All in all if you are going here you will enjoy your family holiday but don't expect a lay in or a peaceful evening as it is far to noisy and having a child with autism I chose to take him out of school in term time so to get a peaceful time but this did not happen.More
