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.

Family Holiday August 2016 (Thomson)
I stayed here with my family from the 11-18th August 2016. Having read some of the negative reviews, we were apprehensive, but in the end we actually really enjoyed it: a great- though not perfect- holiday. I would first of all like to start by saying that many of the problems weren't caused by the staff directly, but I felt that both Thomson rep, and the hotel staff (especially the reception staff) could have done much more to prevent it from happening. Room: We upgraded to a junior suite and it was amazing! The view was great, room a great size and very comfortable. I would definitely recommend upgrading. We were on the first floor, and would recommend this as we never had to get the lifts that hardly ever work. Whilst the room was almost perfect, there was only one issue: the AC. We had to put our AC on the lowest setting to prevent water from falling from the ceiling. We reported this to reception, who hours later "fixed" the problem by sealing the leak. From them on, we decided not to barely use the AC. If this hadn't have happened, it would have been perfect. Food- The food here was good- but not outstanding. Although the buffet always had variety each night, some nights were a bit disappointing, but still okay nevertheless. Only thing we didn't like was the juice machines: you would press apple and get orange, very confusing ; and it was also mostly warm. Choice for alcohol was good, but for the kids not so much. They could only have fizzy drinks (Coke, Fanta etc.) or warm juice. However, we understood that this was a 4 star hotel, and the food was acceptable with that in mind. Beach/Pool- The beach was okay- very busy at times. We spent most of our time there as the pool was often so crowded, we could barely get some chairs. Furthermore, my kids ended up not swimming in the pool at all, as there were too many adults playing with balls, there was no room for them to swim without being hit on the head! I would suggest the hotel make one side of the pool for ball games and the other without. Had an awful experience in the room we booked before we checked out: had not been cleaned for us after the people before had left. This meant that there was a pile of dirty towels left in the bathroom- yuck. We complained to reception who sent a cleaner to get rid of the towels. This happened however after a lot of talking with our rep who said that he "can't help much", as the hotel will tell him to mind his own business. Whilst it was resolved in the end, I still feel that the reception staff were very rude. However, this did not "ruin" everything. Yes it was inconvenient to happen on our last day, but we still had a lovely holiday. If your looking for a great holiday, but will allow for some imperfections then the Taurito princess will suit you. I would say that it deserves it's official 4 stars, but needs to change some things for me to return again. More
Week away from stress
We stayed for a week & left on 1st may 😊our 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 😔I really think the hotel would have been great if it wasn't for the noise 😊would love to visit again one day as food was good & spotlessly clean & staff were very helpful 😊Hurry up & get the hotel back up to scratch 😊💪loved the location too & lovely garden area with great views 😊wish Thomson would have told us about refurbish going on because we would have gone after it was completed 😊More
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 fiancé 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 Mogán 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 Mogán 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 Mogán. 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 €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
