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 five minutes, or there are cabs outside which will take you to Puerto Rico, about 10 minutes away.
The hotel has two dining areas, including one 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.

Week away from stress
We stayed for a week & left on 1st may ðour holiday was good but half way through holiday they started there refurbishment & only one restaurant open & could hear drilling when trying to relax round the pool x so we went out on the bus to find some peace ðI really think the hotel would have been great if it wasn't for the noise ðwould love to visit again one day as food was good & spotlessly clean & staff were very helpful ðHurry up & get the hotel back up to scratch ððªloved the location too & lovely garden area with great views ðwish Thomson would have told us about refurbish going on because we would have gone after it was completed ðMore
Excellent Winter Holiday
We spent 11 nights at the Taurito Princess in February, Room was comfortable with a fantastic sea view. Food was varied and generally of good quality, one of the better all inclusive hotels that we have stayed in, We were on floor 11 and the wait for the lifts was a nuisance at times. I believe they are doing something about this in the near future. The close proximity to Puerto Mogan is a real plus as this is such a lovely place and there is not a lot to do in Playa Taurito apart from the beach and the waterpark which did not appeal to us or appear to be well patronised. The hotel provides a bus service into Puerto Mogan once a day and it is worth using it on market day as it can be very busy. You can catch the ferry to Puerto Rico from Mogan and this is a pleasant trip along the coast. There is a good bus service to other parts of the island at the end of the road. Taxis are reasonable but vary greatly in price for the same journey we were never charged the same amount and dont expect any change from the driver. Overall we had a great holiday and enjoyed our stay.More
Firm 3 star holiday
My fiancÃ© and I stayed here mainly because we like to stay somewhere with a pool and a beach close by and we like the fact Puerto MogÃ¡n wasn't too far away. Arrival was quick and easy as we dashed straight off the coach to avoid the queue. On arrival we were given a voucher for a free bottle of cava as we were celebrating our engagement. Our room was on the 11th floor and we never experienced any issues with the lifts. We didn't wait hours for one to come and it was only too full for us to squeeze in twice and we only had to wait a few more minutes before a second one arrived. The food was okay, a bit too much garlic in some dishes though. The spicy Chinese soup was delicious. You can only eat in the Chinese and Italian restaurant one night of your stay and it's a definite must because it's so nice to eat outside. I hated eating inside at my evening meal. I'm on holiday and the weather was gorgeous so I would have preferred the option to sit outside every night. The evening entertainment is a bit cheesy and cringe. The piano bar was far too loud so if you're looking for alternatives I'd recommend sitting outside and having a drink or going for an evening walk after your meal. The pool area was a bit noisy because it was the Easter holidays and so a lot of children running around. We headed to the beach for some peace and quiet but were rather disappointed to find you had to pay for the sunbeds and umbrellas. I really think a 4 star hotel which is on the beach should include the sunbeds on the beach. Definitely worth heading to Puerto MogÃ¡n on Friday morning, you have to book the bus which leaves from the hotel as a lot of people want to go visit the market. The gardens at the hotel was a lovely place to sit with a cocktail or glass of wine in the evening and watch the sun set over Puerto MogÃ¡n. I felt overall that this hotel was a firm 3 stars. We enjoyed our holiday but don't think we would return to the hotel as we know you can get a better experience for the price we paid. More
Ok. That is the feeling I got with many aspects of this hotel. Just ok, and if your looking for a quick week away to chill out and recharge your batterys this is an adequate place to do that. It is ridiculous you charge visitors for a wifi service that only works when sitting in the lobby. I understand most hotels charge for a wifi service, but one that works for â¬19 is a must!! Come on management sort the issue out!! We are in the 21st century. Entertainment team are very poor. The 2 girls running the aqua fitness are frankly embarrassing. I'm not sure what they were doing and it is about as funny as tooth ache. The mid morning dance at 10am? What is that all about? Just over all not entertaining and to be honest very very strange. Shows at night, well, the fact that no ones goes to watch them must say something. Food was a massive plus. Massive variety and hot and tasty. Food near enough all day. Beer and wine on tap was fine, spirits were of decent quality. I cannot comment on the lifts as our room was on the first floor but again the room was ok. Floor boards coming loose, air con switch hanging off the wall. Shower leaking and a blocked toilet as we arrive at the hotel. Someone did come to fix it straight away so I am grateful for how quickly the issue was sorted. I understand people must think why don't you move rooms if there are issues but there not massive, just not what you expect at a 4 star hotel. On the plus, the bed was massive and comfy. Maids and hotel staff are pleasant and friendly. The receptionist's are also helpful if you need anything. The pool area again was ok. I completely agree with previous reviews about just shoving as many sun beds in as possible. Not exactly relaxing to be honest and feel very cramped. Pools were nice and clean. The stairs to the pool bar are an accident waiting to happen. I cannot imagine the thought process in putting ragged small steps up to a bar were there are obviously wet patches leading them to be slippy. To summarise my whole attitude towards the hotel was it's ok. I wouldn't return, but I wouldn't not recommend this hotel to someone if they are looking for an ok week away somewhere. More
Another wonderful holiday at the Taurito Princess!
We have recently returned from a weeks holiday at The Taurito Princess. My mum, my son and myself stayed last April and enjoyed it so much we decided to return again this year. My husband was also able to join us this year so we booked two rooms. I emailed ahead of our arrival to request a couple of things and all, if not more, were fulfilled. It was mentioned by the Receptionist on check-in that we were returning guests which was a nice touch considering the hundreds of guest that must check-in each week and we were allocated rooms as requested. A day or so later we received a card in our room thanking us of our return visit with a voucher for 4 premium cocktails, which was a lovely little touch. The room itself was spacious and clean with a lovely big balcony with views out to sea and over Taurito. The food is the Restaurant was always excellent with plenty to choose from, especially with the show cooking each day as well. We dined in La Chozo for 3 nights which was lovely, especially as one evening we were lucky enough to dine al fresco! The wines, beers and soft drinks were all ok too. We did love the cocktail "Love on the beach" and my son favoured the non-alcoholic "San Francisco". There is a daily free bus service to the next resort, just 5 minutes away - Puerto Mogan, which is well worth a visit or two. Very picturesque with some lovely restaurants right on the sea front which are well worth a visit. Friday is market day which gets very busy so to see it at its best, I would suggest opting for another day. The entertainment in the evening at the hotel runs on a two weekly rota system.Last year we were there on the alternative week where we saw some great acts. Unfortunately, this year we found it not as good, although may be that is just down to personal taste. We spent most evenings, after watching the amazing sunset from the beautiful gardens, in the Piano Bar, although perhaps a change of Pianist throughout the week may be good move! We used the pool on a few occasions but found even the heated pool to be quite cold and the sunbeds were always full, although we did always find some seating. The waterpark is literally a couple of minutes walk from the hotel and very reasonably priced. The last day of our holiday was my mum's birthday and again we were given vouchers for more premium cocktails or a bottle of bubby to celebration - again, a thoughful touch. All in all, with the perfect weather conditions as well, we all enjoyed a very relaxing holiday and hope to return again one day to Gran Canaria.More
