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.

Loved it!! Great food, great fun, fab holiday ;0)

My 8 year old son and I stayed here for 7 nights in June 2014. We both had an amazing time and are due back again with my husband in tow this time for 11 nights in June 2015. We used a company called Resort Hoppa to get us to and from the resort from the airport. This year we are hiring a car instead. In the car it’s about 40 mins away, by Resort Hoppa shared coach it took between 70 - 90mins!!! • The room was big, bright, very clean, spacious and airy – there was enough storage for all our needs. There was an under-counter fridge, the balcony was a decent size and had great views over the resort and beach, this lead to the room with a huge sliding patio door, covered with a voile (net) curtain and a thick, heavy curtain – you could use either. On arrival we noticed that the shower head was broken and it soaked the whole bathroom, a quick call to reception ensure this was fixed and cleaned up by the time we arrived back from the pool to get ready for dinner. • The hotel, again very clean & tidy, you could either walk the stairs to your room or take one of the 2 lifts available from the foyer/restaurant. The large restaurant, pool bar and pool area are on the first floor. Wi-fi is NOT free, there is a charge that you pay for separately. The hotel advertises things like laundry services, but I never used these last June. • The restaurant, personally I loved the food, but I didn’t go in with the expectation I would get a sit down meal or table service. You can sit inside in air-conditioned bliss or outside under umbrellas in the shade/sun. It’s a buffet but the food was delicious. Breakfast was the usual toast, bread, cereals, tea coffee, cooked hot food. For lunch and Dinner - there was a huge salad area, with a huge choice salad, oils, etc. The bread area, and the main area that has a choice of paella, different basic pastas with different sauces, the usual chips/fries, rice dishes, pizzas and there is always a meat or fish being cooked fresh on the grills. We also found that on some days there was a BBQ set up outside on the terrace. There is drink on tap, from soda, wine, beer, water, tea, coffee, hot choc, etc. It’s very much self-service, however there are lots of waiters on hand to whisk your empty plates away when you’re finished or ready to go up for more…. Some nights there appeared to be canapés and wine set out near the entrance, but no one was really that clear if they were for us or another party that had requested them?? The only let down really were desserts, most people stuck to ice-cream, sprinkles and toppings, rather than the strange jelly looking like desserts. It met all our needs and provided excellent choice considering it needs to cater for a wide range of cultures and tastes and it’s one of the reasons we are heading back again this year. The restaurant is open at set times only, you can’t go in when you want to get food. • The pool area and bar, the pools not the biggest and it’s a case of if you have small kids and you need to get a seat round the pool you’d better get your towel on your bed before 8am!! There are loads of other loungers available but they are not in sight of the pool. When I was there sun hit the pool at 10am ish and left about 6pm. There is a pool bar and pool table. The pool bar supplies drinks throughout the day and also caters for self-service toast, toasties, tea/coffee and magdalenas (sponge cakes) between lunch and dinner ( I can’t remember about what’s provided between breakfast and lunch). This pool bar is open until approx. 11pm at night . There are some kids activities that happen around the pool twice a day, sometimes they are taken away to play mini golf or to make props for the shows at night. My son made loads of friends around the pool during the day – he loved it. Pool towels are taken from the SPA reception; we left a 10 euro deposit (you are given a receipt) for each towel and returned it dirty and wet at the end of each day and received a new clean one. You get your money back when you want by giving them the receipt. • The waterpark, brilliant fun, my son absolutely loved it. It is cold salt water, but neither of us minded. The only downside of this was that our sun cream didn’t seem to last as long as it normal does and we both got a bit burnt, so I had to resort on making my son wear his UV top when in the park. One of the afternoons we were there the kids clubs had a foam party in the water park. One thing to note that the water park is open to anyone, so there are frequently coach loads of locals also in attendance and it can get busy, particularly at the weekend. Water park is open 10-6pm. There were other people walking about with silver VIP all-inclusive bracelets but I could never figure out 100% what this was for, however I think it was to get free drinks/snacks in the water park – otherwise you pay as they are not all-inclusive only park entry. • The kids clubs, again I couldn't quite figure these out, I thought there were designated areas to take my son to for his age, but on the first day when I took him I was told to go back to the pool. So after that we stayed at the pool and waited on them….. not sure if this was right or not!? • Evening entertainment, consisted of different acts on stage (not really my thing), around the bar in the entertainment area or a visit to the amusement arcade. This also included a 2 lane bowling alley, pool tables, air hockey, etc. Again NOT free and where I ended up spending most of my money. • The resort, fairly compact, if you enough walking and seeing things this probably isn't for you unless you hire a car, take a bus/taxi out of the resort. Mogan is in the next village but on this occasion didn't go, but it’s on my for this June. Other areas to visit in resort are: the beach (black sand – gave me black toes so we didn't go back) I only spent 5 mins there walking along it, numerous souvenir and clothing shops and a mini-market for anything you have forgotten to pack. Some nights there are market traders set up next to the entrance to the water park and hotel across the way. There’s a 9 hole crazy golf range, a garden walk and tennis courts, etc. In summary we loved this holiday, the only downside being the small pool and lack of sun loungers in sight of the pool if you’re not an early riser. Also some people thought it acceptable to put towels on 2 beds when they were there themselves or to put towels down then not appear until late afternoon!!!! We are really looking forward to coming back.More

Lauren F,

April family fun in the sun

Stayed for 1 week and our family really enjoyed it especially my 3 year old daughter. The hotel is very clean and staff are friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was spacious and had decent facilities. There was a tv in the room, which didn't cater much for the British channels, but this was no worry as we were always out. The outdoor pool is a good size with plenty of sun loungers surrounding with the all inclusive bar. The outdoor bar is good , which also provides light snacks and sandwiches during the day. The food provided for breakfast, lunch and tea is ok and this is the only area of improvement I could say. The children's food catering area didn't change much so I is best just to stock up the adults food on their plates. There are plenty of alcoholic and soft drinks to select from. There is also entertainment area outside the hotel, which is linked to the all inclusive package. This is a few minutes walk away and there is music entertainment and games for adults and kids. There is also an arcade and supermarkets and other shops near the hotel. The beach is also a short walk away. During the day there are friendly holiday reps that come around the hotel trying to get adults and children involved in games. The young ones can do the kids club, which is twice a day and the adults can take part in darts, table tennis, archery, shooting etc. There are plenty of excursions to also do but talk to your holiday rep about that. There are also nearby towns to visit including port Morgan and Puerto Rico. Port Morgan is definitely worth a visit. Also a water park outside the hotel , which is ok. Water a bit cold so preferred the hotel pool. Family all had a great time and would definitely come again. Weather in Mid April was sunny every day and wasn't to sweltering for the little one. All had a nice tan to show off as well, which made us very happy customers.More

"Lovely holiday to start the year"

We had a great holiday. Weather was good, location good, entertainment was good. Especially liked the water park. Our room was perfectly situated, and we spent ages on the balcony admiring the view. Good choice of food.More

Grand Gran Canarin

Very impressed with this hotel and the whole layout of this site. We booked it quite late and got a very good deal. We've already booked to go back this September but this time it was not as cheap but we now know it's well worth it. Very clean, great choice of food and drink and things too do. Not a late night noisy resort but great if you want a chilled holiday with some great entertainment. More

Del R,

Fabulous family holiday!

Great hotel, fab location,staff and in particular the entertainment team are absolutely brilliant.... Only downside, nothing for toddlers, nowhere to play or any activity site. The food is ok, not bad but a little bland and a few too many queues but you can forgive this for the positives of the rest of the hotel.More
