“Lovely week in the sun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Lovely place, we went as a couple and had a lovely time. This place is absolutely geared up for children and families, it is a very large complex and the staff are extremely friendly, work very hard and do their best to help if you need it. As a couple we had a room that was on the 5th floor and although there is children you don't hear them at night. The buses run regularly and are right at the end of the road, its very cheap and cheerful.
If you like to go out I highly recommend as bar called PIO PIO ask someone locally, it plays music every sunday from 3pm to 9pm much of it n English, its a bit like a warm biker afternoon and you may even get to see the sunset depending on time of year - stunning.
Bus to puerto rico cheap and quick - great for a night out or if you prefer to stay on site there is so much activity you are never bored. Food is great so much variation but do try their pizza and grilled chicken - just lovely.
The bay and beach in mogan is just stunning and there is amadores beach, very touriste but get yourself a snorkelling set and head out to the barrier to see the sealife - be warned its very deep and you need to be a strong swimmer.
Only 2 things I found slightly disappointing but certainly by no means a complaint the fridge had lots of brown staining inside but feel for keeping water cool and the water in the kids water park was very dirty again no big deal.
All in all highly recommended especially the area, somewhere quiet yet near enough night life if you want it, ask for a high floor ie 5 upwards and we even had to sleep with the balcony doors open - no problems

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor and pool view, bonus they have double beds here too so ask for a room with one.

As the title says, I recommend this hotel to everyone who embarks on Gran Canaria. Staff absolutely amazing, rooms clean, food very good. While on the beach you have to pay for sunbeds, but we did not mind. There are still many hotels but Lago Taurito and I think that Princess Taurito have free access to the Aquapark. Others must pay.

It hasn't been even two weeks ago when we have returned from Paradise Lago Taurito.
We have been staying there for one week between 20th and 27th February.We were party of four, three adults and a child.The hotel is situated in beatiful area, breath taking views of mountains and the ocean, very picturesque place.We have been allocated in room 216 with nice pool view.We have booked a family room, which was huge with kitechenette, small fridge and microwave.The balcony was very spacious with glass table and four chairs.All the rooms have got the sea view.If you wanted better sea view I would advise to ask for a room located closer to the waterpark. Hotel grounds are clean very well maintained.The water park looks amazing but we haven't used it as the water in the pools was freezing cold.We have only used the heated pool which was fine.There is lots of loungers by the pool but the best is to reserve them before breakfast as they are going quick.The weather was great,warm and sunny through all our stay.
The food was very good, lots of choice, nicely presented.We didn't like drinks, coffee was horrible, no taste of coffee at all, alcoholic drinks were very week.We did only drunk sangria and beer as they seemed to be of better quality.The food in the pool bar was very poor, had tree choices only: hot dog, hamburger and toast and they didn't even taste good!
The animation team was great,working hard, good entertainment programme.We had a chance to see Mama Mia show and we were amazed with the quality of performance.They were all great espacially Kama in the main act.We had a lots of fun that night!Well done guys!
We have made to tips, one to Mogan and another to Puerto Rico.Nice places worth visiting.
Amadores beach is a must! You won't regret if you go there.Had a lovely day at Amadores!The colour of water is just amazing and we can even managed to swim once.
The public transport is good.You can get by bus everywhere.They run very frequently I would say every ten minutes and cost only 1.40 Euro, cheap and efficient.
We have booked our transfers on via Travelrepublic.We got a good deal as we have paid £84 return with private taxi for all our party.We had no problems with them at all, it took 40 minutes to get to the hotel from the airport.Check them out before you book your transfers.I would advise you to book transfer before you go as the cab from the hotel to the airport cost £65 so it's not that cheap.
We had a wonderful time in Lago Taurito.Shame we couldn't stay longer.We are already thinking to come back sometime this summer.
I would recommend it to everyone.

Enjoy your holidays in Taurito!

Have just returned from a stay here with my partner and ten year old son. It was busy, staff in the dining room running to stand still, then after the evening meal dashing to the bar to serve there - the inside bar didn't open until after dinner service. The animation team worked really hard and were all smiles, however I think that the work they did with the children was superior to their more family directed entertainment.

The rooms are very basic but clean, not provided with maid service on a Sunday. They require some updating if truth be told and the television looked as though it had come out of the ark.

The waterpark is salt water which can be harsh on the skin, you have to pay extra for the sunbeds there and a further charge for cushions. However hiring a waterpark sunbed was a bargain in comparison to one on the beach and the company might want to rethink their charging policy on that as everyone sits on towels on the sand around the overpriced sunbeds.

Watch out for hawkers trying to take you on 'no obligation' trips to visit other hotels a taxi drive away.

The food was okay but it was difficult to find a table at peak times, however quality and variety of food served throughout the dining room opening times is maintained

The staff were helpful and friendly throughout our stay, there just weren't enough of them to go around !

We stayed in this hotel July to August 2012. it is a big hotel with other nationalities. we had the best 2 weeks holiday with our kids both age 11 that we have booked to go back for 2 weeks in July 2013. I contacted the hotel via their Facebook page and asked for a room at the beach end of the hotel above floor 3 and weren't disappointed the view was amazing and the noise levels low. we did not use the evening entertainment as our kids are a little to old for that. there was always plenty of different foods on offer in the restaurant at breakfast lunch and dinner and even with 2 very fussy eaters we never left the restaurant hungry. like other reviews it is difficult to get a sunbeds by the pool however the water park opens at 10 and we never had a problem getting a bed by the pool there. yes you have to pay 2 Euros a bed but the water was nice and you have the bed for the whole day. we have a great and relaxing 2 weeks all together and that what our holiday was for.

Room Tip: ask for a room at the beach end of the hotel above floor 3

please rember this is my opion, what people forget to say is there is 3 hotels on the complex each a different class, we stayed at the so called better one the staff where rude, but i noticed it was only towards english people, the first room we where given already had people in it, so if things go missing and you dont no how its because they give out anyones room key, there was scum floating on the pool never stayed at such a nasty hotel, was ready to leave 3 days in.
