Good & not so good!
We stayed at this Hotel in September as a reasonably priced autumn break. Probably one of the most difficult Hotels to review as there are good and bad points. Straight away I will dispute the 4 star rating. A 3 star yes, 4 star no! On the good side the views are fantastic, especially from the high floors. The Hotel is spotless and they are constantly cleaning things! This Hotel is all-inclusive, not something we usually do. However the food was quite good and there was always something for even the most fussy eater. Sometimes the choice was a bit odd. For instance one evening there was a great heap of noodles on the buffet but nothing really to accompany them! Another time a equally big pile of spring rolls but again nothing to accompany them. However for the price we paid you could not really complain. The quality of the drinks varied. The beer was OK but the wine was pretty awful and the red wine in the Restaurant (you helped yourself) was chilled! You could buy premium drinks at the bar and one couple we spoke to had been offered a free upgrade to a premium drinks package. It may be worth looking into that if you like your wine? The Hotel is set into the cliff and the rooms are all accessed by the most odd lift arrangements I have ever come across. It seemed impossible to access our room without either walking up a flight of stairs or a slope to the next level. Everyone seemed baffled by the lift layout as due to the way the Hotel is set into the cliff, it is not possible to get a lift all the way up (unless of the really low floors). The cleaning ladies also have to use the same lifts so it can be a bit of a struggle to get down to breakfast if you are a late riser! The Hotel is at the end of a long steep hill up from the 'village' and beach. There is a free shuttle bus about every hour to the beach but I wouldn't recommend walking up or down unless you are pretty fit. The road outside is a public road (there is no Hotel parking) and parking restrictions are rigidly enforced by the Police. If you come back to the Hotel late (by which I mean after 6pm) you will have a job to find somewhere to park your hire car and it could involve a long walk up the hill. There are plenty of cabs around and the reception will call you one for free. We went to Puerto Mogan (the next bay) on Market Day for about 7 Euros each way. There is nowhere to park on Market day so don't take the car. There are local buses but this will involve a walk up & down the hill again as the bus stop is at the bottom. We had mixed feelings about this Hotel. If you just want to sit around the pool and now and again pop down to the beach on the shuttle bus then fine. If, like us, you like to explore the area a bit more there are other Hotels nearby which are much more convenient.More
Absolutely unfriendly hotel!
If it wasnât the case that we stayed there only for two days it could be the worst holiday ever. It was the first time when we were approached so badly when we arrived. We were denied the dinner because we were two minutes late. We explained that due to airport bags receipt delay and a very long line by the car rental office we travelled for almost twelve hours and weâre very tired and hungry. The receptionist replied that weâre late for the dinner (it was two minutes past nine) and we can drive to nearby town to get something to eat. After so many hours or travel we were supposed to drive to another town, hunting for food? There was also no bottled water in the room so the first evening at the hotel was sponsored by âhungerâ and âthirstâ. Itâs not the only negative opinion I have on the hotel: - The route to the hotel is not marked by any hotel sign and itâs very easy to get lost in the dark. - The hotelâs car park is VERY small and usually you have to leave the car down the road and then walk uphill for about ten minutes to get to the hotel. - Way to the hotel room is horrible! You need to climb the stairs and use three elevators to reach the top building number four, where our room was. Weâre young and fit couple but I really feel sorry for elders or parents with children when they have to climb all this way up to get to the room couple of times during the day. - I canât understand the positive opinions regarding the food at the hotel. If itâs someoneâs first adventure with All Inclusive option it can be pretty okay, but the frequent travelers may not like the typical English options like: fried bacon, fried potatoes, fried sausages, puffed breads, etc. Everything was fried on fishy looking oil. Too little vegetables, choice of vegetarian food close to none. And donât eat the fish. Unless â like us â you want to suffer for three days because of the indigestion and stomach pains. - All Inclusive option doesnât necessary mean access to all alcohols. Thereâs a Premium option though, which means additional fee to enjoy the full choice of beverages. I suggest to create the All Inclusive Premium Extra option with even more incredible optionsâ¦ - Paid Internet access in XXI century? At four stars hotel? With this price? - The TV in the room is very retro 90âs. - Thereâs a VERY SMALL shower in the bathroom. You can barely fit and thereâs no space for the cosmetics. Thereâs also no samples of the soap/shampoo in there too when you can find this in virtually all hotels. - The service at the hotel â as wide as the reception through dinner and pool bars - is very unpleasant, making an âresentfulâ impression at all times. Iâm sorry but this is the worst hotel Iâve been to up to date. More
Worst lift system, self service during the meal and not friendly reception staff. Hotel is located not on the Sun side, so sunshine starting only after 11.30-12.00. Better stay on the beach neither in the hotel. Food quality is poor and almost the same. I will never stay again in this hotel. Better to stay in Taurito PrincesMore

Fantastic family holiday âº
WoW. What a location!! If you want an amazing sunset you are in the best hotel in Gran Canaria. Rooms were great, adjoining rooms for the family of 4, loads of space and immaculatley clean. There is stairs.... but hey.... the hotel is built into a cliff, do not book if you are not wanting to make an effort to get to your room. We had 2 children 7 & 9, they loved the pools which were great for kids, not heated but even in November they were warm enough for all the family, entertainment was really good also, Oscar was fantastic with our 2 children as was the girl doing darts, Audi. Taurito a great location for going to Mogan or Puerto Rico. Would we go again, in a heartbeat. However the hotel probably needs to think about investing in some upgrades and investment in general maintenance, with that location and the right investment 5 * is possible !! Loved it âðð¸More
Amazing views, great food, immaculately clean hotel
The room was spacious, the hotel was immaculately clean, food was in abundance and something for everyone, a great variety. Reception staff really helpful and friendly. Serving staff in the restaurant worked like Trojans to ensure everyone was catered for efficiently, hats off to them for their hard work. Entertainment in the evening was not the best, but we met lots of wonderful people and spent nights in their lovely company. Loved the views from our hotel room, we were on the sixth floor - was a bit confusing to start with using the lifts, we had to use three and do a bit of walking from one lift to another. After a few drinks one night got completely lost and had to ask a security man to get us to our room, it was a giggle. There are regular buses from the hotel to the beach - but you can walk there in about 15 minutes, its not that far, its a bit of a hill to climb back up, but helped to work off some of the thousands of calories we consumed in food and alcohol. Recommend going into Puerto Mogan, its so pretty, Little Venice, but unless cheap markets are your thing, I wouldn't advise going to the market - every stall is much the same. The shops are beautiful and restaurants amazing. Only fault I would say with the hotel is the pool area, its a danger zone, every day we were there people slipped over - including children, none of the staff ever got up to assist the injured or fallen, which I found strange. The hotel needs to change the surface or place non slip mats around the pool, it really is dangerous. It was a wonderful holiday, we didn't want to come home.More
