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.
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.
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.
Overall as a family we were pleasantly surprised. for the price we paid we weren't expecting too much, but found everything ok. Paradise taurito is a self contained resort/water park, but only a small taxi journey to surrounding towns etc. The resort is relatively clean and maintained although the water park itself is salt water which can be rather annoying. The hotel food is average and changed every evening to give you plenty of choice, although there's only one restaurant to choose from. One massive downfall is lack of water. We found we were spending fortunes on bottled water as none are supplied. All in all a good holiday but be aware you are very much contained within the resort unless your willing to hire a car or pay for taxis. More
A nice enough hotel but you are captive in a small resort owned and ran by the hotel. Broken down here are the plus+ and minus - points . We ran out of running water 3 times in 2 weeks!!! Yes no water to flush the Loo or take a shower. All water is trucked in and i don't think they had paid the bill,.I have a open compliant with Thomsons on this issue but read on Free Wi fi everywhere is good Pool and Sunbeds: Big enough for what you need and we were normally able to get a sun bed each day as there are people coming and going from the hotel every day. I transfer days were more limited they would run out as there is not huge space. Pool is fresh water and has an inbuilt Jacuzzi . You can pay a Â£10 euro deposit per beach towel which you can change daily and get your 10 euros back at the end of your holiday. The guy that tidy's up and square up the beds each night does a great job = overall 4/5 Pool Bar/ Piano Bar The padded seating needs removed on the chairs or replaced with water proof chairs as you get a damp bum if you sit on them at night after them get wet throughout the day. Bar is ok and staff are all good. Top barman is the guy with the hair bun. Drinks are all good and pepsi/7up /sweppes for soft drink = 4/5 Snack Bar Pretty limited but was ok = 2/5 Restaurant Takes a bit of getting used to but food was all o.k. There is always a grill with fish or meat and a roast at night. There is always pasta and salads. It is pretty repetitive and was not the best in 4 star I have experienced, problem is there is no restaurants in the resort so like it or you need get bus to Puerto Mogan where there is great choice. All staff in the restaurant are good with the exception of the lady chef with the Deirdre Barlow glasses who needs a personality operation or but behind the scenes.= 3/5 Rooms Good standard and have air con. The patio door must be closed for air con to work. Beds and Bathroom good standard . Rooms from third floor up have best views. Rooms also have fridge . Rooms cleaned daily and towels changed . Balcony's are very large = 5/5 Waterpark Good park and free to get. Do not queue just walk in with your all inclusive band you don't have to wait. Some slides are slow but there is plenty of choice. Its not a huge park but has plenty of beds which again are all free. Your all inclusive also works in the park.=4/5 Entertainment This is all in the central arena at night and has the normal mini disco and entertainment shows. The mini golf is there and is 4 euro per person, including children. Trampolines are 3 euro per go, and there is an amusement arcade = 3/5 Beach Is two minute walk and is OK. Better beaches at Amodores , Puerto Rico or Puerto Mogan which have golden sands . Taurito beach is ok but has black sand and waves can get quite high, I saw a few folk getting knocked off their feet, so watch out. You can hire beds and umbrellas but not sure on price. There is also diving , banana boats and jet skis etc =3/5More
My family have just returned from a 14 night stay at the Valle Taurito, which we have all enjoyed. The hotel is situated in a very nice area and is seen as one of the better in the resort. The facilities on hand are first class and it is perfectly easy not to wander 200 meters from the building throughout your stay as the shops, Splash Park, entertainment area and beach are within a very short walking distance. The hotel pool is very nice, yet slightly small considering the hotel can probably hold 600+ guests. There is a Spa area which I didn't use but was told that their rates were reasonable and value for money. The hotel is situated very close to other resorts so it is very easy to get a bus or taxi, which I thought were very reasonable (â¬6 - â¬10) depending on area visiting. The Splash Park was disappointing even though I knew the water was salty prior to booking the holiday, the water made it difficult for the children to really enjoy the experience, which resulted in us staying at the hotel pool for the majority of the holiday. Our all inclusive bands gave us unlimited access to the Splash Park however, the park was open to all, making it very congested with locals over the weekend periods. The food on offer was of a good standard yet slightly repetitive, I found the food to be more geared more for the European guests, especially the sweets. Like all resorts I've been to, the entertainment staff tirelessly work hard, giving 100% effort, their activities around the pool and in other areas where always welcome and always gave the children something to do instead of being in the pool. The evening entertainment which was centrally located, allowing all hotels the use was very European orientated. Like the Splash Park the Spa was open to the paying public too, this gave then access to the hotel pool after their treatments, at times this would make the pool and bar area very busy and made you wonder who the hotel was catering for, the all inclusive holiday maker or the paying public. Like most pool/sun lounger areas getting your spot was a very tactical game at times, and I did witness a serious confrontation due to towels going missing and another family taking the position. All of my First Choice holidays previously had been to Holiday Villages, coming to a Splash Park I thought would be a welcomed change, maybe if the Parks water hadn't been salty and the area was only for holiday makers only then maybe my experiences would have been better, but as a whole, we had a good time.More
Room gorgeous food lovely staff very helpful. The only bad thing I can say about the hotel is SUNBEDS!! People put their towels ouyouyt at 11 pm the night before to reserve the sunbeds. We did complain and so did several other people but to no avail. The only answer we got was 'we are aware of the problem so we suggest you remove thgthge towels yourself!! Other than that its lovelyMore
The hotel is lovely. It's located opposite the waterpark and nearby shops. The rooms are clean and spacious with a daily maid service. The restaurant has a good selection of food which is good quality for all inclusive. Bar selection is local brands, beer is nice, spirits are okay. Staff are friendly, especially in the restaurant were they reserved a table for the whole holiday for our large group. There is a safe for a daily charge and a pool towel service for a deposit, saves on the baggage. Couple of downsides. For a family resort you would expect a chemist to pick up the basics, paracetamol, nappy creme etc. If you ask at the hotel reception they will send you to the one across the road. They will tell you there is no other one nearby. The fact is it is NOT a chemist, it is an overpriced herbalist. Apparently many people are caught with this scam. So avoid anything called a PARAFARMACIA, they are not chemists but won't tell you that. The FARMACIA is in Puerto de Mogan, a five minute taxi/bus journey away. In fact go there for any shopping, the shops in Taurito are overpriced in general because it is a resort with no walking access to anywhere else. Market day in Puerto de Mogan is very popular, so lots of people do try to book taxi or catch the bus from the hotel. This is a bit of a shambles, buses are full by the time they get to Taurito so don't stop and anyone with a family of five will have a long wait for a taxi with more than 4 seats. Considering walking is not an option a courtesy bus from the hotel would've been good.More
