Hotel Taurito Princess

Sea views from the rooms and the pools make this hotel a laid-back retreat.

All rooms at this beachfront hotel get a sea view, and the place is just steps away from the black sand. A free shuttle bus gets you to Puerto Mogan in 5 minutes, or there are cabs outside which will take you to Puerto Rico, about 10 minutes away.

After a 2013 refurb, the hotel now has 2 dining areas, including a modern space with al fresco seating. There’s also a funky piano bar and a sports bar. All this, plus a couple of good-sized pools as well.

Great hotel & holiday!

Ignore the negative reviews about this hotel - Stayed here for a week in July and had a great time! The hotel and rooms were very clean and the staff were always really friendly including the animation team who provided entertainment throughout the day and night. There are plenty of sunbeds and a lovely pool which overlooks the beach which is also great with plenty of watersports on offer. The hotel has a selection of bars and restaurants, there was always plenty of choice for food all throughout the day - the Asian buffet was really good! I really would recommend this hotel, cannot fault it, great entertainment, food, staff, location and amazing sea views from the rooms!More

Courtney D,

Excellent location, amazing holiday.

I visited Hotel Taurito Princess, Playa Taurito, Gran Canaria on 23/07/16 for one week with my dad and my brother. Prior to visiting I had been desperate to escape from this gloomy British weather for 5 years and explore the Canarian culture. Oddly, any area outside of where I live is always very awe inspiring, so to be on an island, located just 500km off the North-West coast of Africa over 4000km away from home is incredible. The weather was perfect every day which makes up for it excellently. Lowest at 25℃ and highest at 33℃, and you never seem to get too hot as there tends to be a refreshing breeze, then again the hotel is located facing directly towards the Atlantic Ocean. Which brings me to my next point... Scenery. The scenery is amazing. Every room has a beautiful blue sea view coupled at day with the sights of the nearby waterpark*, pools, Hotel Suite Princess and cliffs, and at night the calming fluorescence of the waterpark's and pool's colour-changing lights. All of which are reasons why I spent a lot of time on the balcony, it's breathtaking. *The waterpark I recommend. Note that the pool's water is salt water. They get the water from the sea that is replaced often and cleaned all day which saves them an incredible amount of money. Hotel. The 4 star hotel is wonderful. The staff are very polite, great service, the interior is very well planned and almost Greek looking. Meals and snacks throughout the day were very good, a wide range of food and beverages from various cultures. Each night there were different themes, such as French one night, Italian the next, etc. The garden/grassy area located outside of the 1st floor restaurant is beautiful. I went there every day. The area overlooks Puerto Môgan, or 'Little Venice' as the locals call it. Amazing town, some great shops, and the pier is very nice. I may note that, should you visit there, you may spot a few half naked women which I wasn't expecting. This isn't a problem as it's allowed but just forewarning. This applies to the resort's own beach at some points of the day as well. Should there be one complaint about the hotel, the lifts are very inconvenient. There are three 1920's style lifts (which look very nice) and one of which kept going out of service at many points throughout the week, which will leave you with a mere two lifts to support 11 floors and 404 rooms. You will frequently find yourself waiting 20 minutes for a lift and sometimes giving up and walking up possibly 11 flights of stairs. Rooms. The rooms were very nice. I have heard that some rooms can vary, such as some may be smaller than others regardless of room choice, some may have electronic components which have active wires sticking out, faulty plugs, missing tv remotes, loose shower heads, etc. My room, however, was perfect. Everything was working how it should be and everything was there. Everything was kept spotless (the maids are lovely) and kept us happy. The bedding was very comfortable, the TV programme choice was good, I found myself watching a lot of Spanish TV (uno, cinco! seis ocho!) and learning a lot of Spanish. Facilities. The facilities in the hotel were simple. There was a gym, sauna, tennis court and squash court. All of which were excellent. The gym had some very good equipment and was kept in excellent condition. The sauna is very relaxing and comfortable, the tennis court is amazing, especially the view from it, and the squash court is just as good as any. Overall, an amazing holiday and I would definitely visit again. Perfectly located, excellent weather, polite and helpful staff, great food and a good range of shops around the resort and in the hotel, the cats around the resort are very cute and friendly too. I would like to thank John, our Thomson rep during our stay, for his support, great humour and great guy. Gracias!More

Brad C,

Nice enough

9 of us arrived at midnight, with 3 young children (6, 4 and 2). Only 2 people on front desk (even though we weren't the only bus load of people arriving at that time so it took forever. Then we got given our bracelets to wear, and my older sister (who is married with 3 children) was asked her age, thinking her less than 18? Could they not have looked at our passports and seen the oldest child in the group was 6? Bit of an annoying start when we were all tired. When we got to the lift (which we waited 10 minutes for with all our suitcases, buggy and 3 sleeping children in our arms) a group of people just pushed in front and took the lift! Needs more lifts and politer guests as this happened a few times so be quick! Then got to our rooms, for some reason our room was much smaller than the other 2 even though we all paid the same so be careful. Then the fireworks started at 1 in the morning, it was a very long night. The rooms themselves were clean enough. Not all the plug sockets work so we had to unplug lamps to charge phones (and their isn't complementary wifi, it costs €19 for the week or €6 for a day!). Our room had a really stiff door also, literally having to shoulder barge it open and the bathroom door didn't close! We told reception and they did send someone up who fixed it but within 2 days it was back to sticking and not closing. And the beds are two singles pushed together and both on wheels! So you can move on your bed and the bed rolls away! It was very hard to sleep and I wriggle and kept falling through the hole that was created! You also don't get fresh beach towels each day, but can pay to have them changed! Their isn't enough sun beds and you're not allowed to save any which is slightly annoying. Oh and their is a strict imposed dress code for men to wear long trousers at dinner but none for women. I saw young girls walking around with their bum cheeks out and crop tops on and men weren't allowed to wear nice shorts to keep cool? Seems stupid really. They also won't let you in for lunch if you're wet so must dry off but no one imposes the smoking rules at the pool itself. Again, really daft. However most of the staff are really helpful, one waitress in particularly was lovely and made jokes with the youngest child and he grew to look for her every time we went for food! She was an asset to the company big time! Food was all a bit samey but plenty of it. Drinks machine kept running out of drinks and there was hardly any ice ever but there are lots of people. Also plates and cups weren't always clean so watch them. The shows of an evening were very hit or miss but the team of reps were great. I now know all the songs off by heart but they were fun and energetic always. Our Thompson rep was great as well, had a laugh and always knew the answer to questions we had. It was a nice enough place but don't think it was quiet a 4* hotel, more of a 3* but did the jobs and the kids were always entertained More

Fab family fun!

First time to Gran Canaria and first time all inclusive. Was a little apprehensive before flying as read a few negative reviews (particularly about the lifts) but we had a blast. Hotel was clean and the staff friendly. A great selection of food in the restaurants, particularly enjoyed the Asian buffet! The location was perfect, right on the beach and a short journey away from Puerto Mogan and Puerto Rico. Taurito is not as built up as other areas of the island but we liked that. If you fancy a day out, the free shuttle bus to Puerto Mogan gets exceptionally busy so we took a taxi there (cost 7€) and hired a taxi back from the taxi rank. If you are looking for a family holiday with lots to entertain the kids then this is the hotel for you. However, if you are looking for a quieter holiday then I would recommended going during term time as it was very busy particularly around the pool. My only negatives (and they are small ones) were the lifts and booking of meals for the 1st floor restaurant. We were on the third floor so if we were waiting for a while we'd brave the stairs - 80 steps up to the 3rd floor. Might have been more cross if I had been on the 11th floor! Also, it was not made obvious about the Italian/ Asian night in the pool side restaurant. We did not realise you could book these nights (Thursday and Friday I think) until it was too late. Would have been nice for a change. Perhaps how to book and when to book could be made more explicit? Finally, I know a lot of people have mentioned about the deck chair "police" and trousers policy at dinner. This did not affect our enjoyment of the holiday. We would have breakfast at 8:30am and then go straight to the pool, still lots of sun loungers available in prime locations. I would however, recommend keeping one of the notes they put on the sun loungers as we did experience the wrath of an angry Spanish woman who didn't speak English! Also, the dress code meant dinner was more of an occasion! More

First holiday

I came in mid July for a week with my boyfriend as our first holiday (we are both 18) and we had a really lovely time. Hotel was lovely and clean, couldn't really fault it. Food was good but got a bit repetitive, but this was expected. Definitely recommend water sports on the beach. Nice area with a few shops, nice perfume shop, mini golf etc, and buses/taxis are cheap into nearby towns. We weren't too keen on water park as was full of ignorant locals and the water is salt water. Overall really lovely holiday and we would love to go back here.More
