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.

Miniclub

The hotel runs this for ages 4-12 years.

Outdoor pool

With a kids' section.

Much better than I expected

Well I am happy to say we are having a lovely time at this hotel, We were worried about coming after reading so many bad reviews but food has been lovely, nice selection and tea and coffee from machine at every meal, really good sweets. We are all inclusive and the drinks are good. The whole hotel is really clean, lovely large room and balcony. We are a couple but it would not suit us in the summer as it is really a family resort with a lot of children but not too bad at this time. Take your own small kettle and cups if you like tea in your room when you wake up. Easy to get a local bus and 1.40 euros to get to Puerto Mogan or Puerto Rico, and their is a coastal path from Puerto Rico to Amadores just over 1000 metres and get a bus back from there.More

Jessie R,

Great Place but no childrens clubs or activites as stated in the brochure

Stayed Easter 2015. -Rooms lovely, food very good, generally the hotel is beautiful and the staff were excellent. Unfortunately the activites run within the hotel are strictly for over 18's, not what it states in the brochure. Apparently the kids club and teens club are held at a neighbouring hotel, (But we couldn't find them, neither could the rep nor the hotel reception) Felt very let down by First Choice as we booked it based on the activites for children. Had it not been for this I would have given 4/5 stars.More

Great family holiday

We stayed here for a week 18th to 25th April. A family of 8 adults and 5 children, from 13 to 2 years. They loved the water slides, which was one of the reasons we booked it. The hotel itself is beautiful. Rooms very spacious and clean. I would say it would be nice if they provided a kettle and tea and coffee in the rooms. The food was lovely, some thing for everyone. They even took a bottle of Champaign to my grandsons room for his 21st birthday, a nice touch. There isn't anywhere to walk to around the area, but can catch a bus or taxi easily to other resorts. Overall we had a lovely holiday. Would definitely recommend for family's.More

shamuses,

Mellow break

Came here with my friend and her son for an all inclusive first choice break. We had a great time. The buffet was excellent and we spent ages perusing the options each time we ate. The waterpark was great fun. I loved lounging by the pool and snoozing. The spa is good quality, and we went on a catamaran trip, paying extra for jet ski and parasailing, which was the highlight of the holiday. Nice place for a break More

HLWalks,

April sunshine break

The island: Gran Canaria is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a beautiful island. It is basically a dry volcanic rock that has been developed for tourism. It therefore doesn't have the history of the Med resorts. The larger resorts are pretty horrible to look at (not quite Blackpool, but you gget my drift). Valle Taurito is much smaller and nicer though, although does have something of a quarry-like appearance. The resort: Valle Taurito is about a 1hr transfer from the airport. The resort is situated at the end of a steep-sided valley which runs from north to south. There are around 7 or 8 hotels it total split across either side, although the appearance is let down somewhat by a part-built hotel on one side. At the bottom of the valley is an excellent water park, entertainment arena (bar, stage, mini golf, bowling alley etc) and sports complex (tennis, football, squash), around which there is a walkway and a few shops (supermarket, clothes etc). At the mouth of the valley is a small but nice beach of grey volcanic sand (south facijng). The whole resort is very clean and generally well maintained, with the exception of the main walkways which have a lot of broken flags. The hotel: Paradise Valle Taurito is situated on the west-side of the valley, just a short walk away from the waterslide complex and entertainments arena. There is a road in front of the hotel, but it is very quiet. Like the resort, the hotel is also very clean and well maintained. The staff are friendly and helpful. Room: We stayed in room 329, which was on the third floor overlooking the pool. There was a good view across the valley (the hotel is on the same side as the derelict building mentioned earlier, so this does not spoil the view). All of the rooms have a limited sea view. Being on the west side of the valley, the balconies get the sun in the morning and early afternoon but are in shade thereafter. The room iteslf was large and clean with two single beds (pushed together) and a comfy double sofa bed. Pool: The brochure says the hotel pool is large, but it really is medium-sized, I would say. It is quite deep all the way along, so small children will need to be able to swim to enjoy it. There is a bubble/Jacuzzi area at one end. There are plenty of sun loungers but those around the pool go quickly, although we always managed to find a space in the afternoon. Towels can be borrowed for €10 each per week, but you get your money back at the end when you return them. The safe costs €3 per day to rent. Restaurant: Having read some of the reviews on trip advisor, I went with relatively low expectations, and so was very pleased to find the standard of food to be excellent. Remember this is an all-inclusive buffet, so don't expect 5-star gourmet meals, but in general there was a good choice andc the food was tasty with a good mixture of hot and cold dishes. Waterpark: The waterpark is excellent, with a good range of slides to suit everyone. It is well maintained and very clean with a good level of lifeguard attendance. The pools are saltwater, but it is fairly mild and doesn't really sting your eyes too much (not like being in the sea). The snack bar is pretty basic, but it is easy to nip back to the hotel for lunch (where the food is good) if you want something more substantial. Evening Enternatinments: There is a mini disco from 8-9 and then a main event from 9-10, which is normally put on by the entertainments team. There were a couple of guest acts too, who were very good. There is a late disco which runs from 11-2pm, but it never disturbed us. Overall, I thought the standard of enternatinment was good. Trips out: We spent a morning at Port Mogan, which is 10 minutes away in a taxi (cost €7 each way). It is a reasonably pleasant place with a nice harbour around which there are a few restaurants and bars. We went on the Friday, which is market day, with plenty of stalls selling the usual leatherwear, clothing and nic-nacs. If you are feeling more adventurous then you can hire a car in the main resort complex or there is a shop where you can book trips out (anything from safari to sailing). Weather: We were there for a week in April, during which the temperature was low-to-mid twenties throughout. We only had one morning when it was really cloudy, but it was still nice and warm. In the evenings it goes a little cooler and you will probably need a cardigan or jumper.More
