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.

We came for a week over our 30th Anniversary, on a recommendation. We had read the reviews before hand and were aware of the comments regarding the poor lifts (sadly still the case, but lest see if it improves during this current renovation), also the fact that they charge for the WiFi (something I find amazing in 2017 when even public places like shopping centres, railway stations as well as Bars and Coffee shops all offer it for free!) and also the fact that a safe is available in each room but there is a charge of 15euro a week (again many other hotels offer this service for free....especially a 4star hotel). We were given a Junior Suite and it was very comfortable, spacious and with a very good sized bathroom, and a lovely view over the waterpark and the sea (all rooms genuinely do have a sea view). One thing that I did find rather funny though was a comment that I read about not having Tea / Coffee facility's in the rooms, and I think this has something to do with the package booked (although that seems a bit stingy) as our room had Tea/Coffee facility's (kettle two mugs and packets of Tea/Coffee sugar and sweetener) but I noticed that when we had used them on the first night, they were not replaced the next day, so I can only assume that they were there because we had been given a Junior Suite, and these facility's came with the room, we also had a fridge (another thing mentioned by others as lacking), hence we simply helped ourselves to Tea/Coffee & sugar from the breakfast hall, and a number of individual milk tubs from breakfast (which we kept in the fridge). The food was good, but quite 'predictable' not that much variety, but always good quality and hot. However there is a lack of any restaurant choice, in other hotels we have staid in there have been multiple restaurants all available on the all inclusive option (although you normally need to book) as an alternative to the buffet, but sadly not the case here. As has been mentioned before the entertainment was not up to much at all, and we preferred to use the Piano Bar, where the pianist was very good, and the Sax player (who we saw once during the week) was fantastic, or to get our drinks and go to the lovely gardens at the cliff edge overlooking the sea towards Porto Morgan, and watch the sun set. One thing with this hotel, was that there is not too many choice of bars, basically two after 6pm when the bar at the pool closes, and after dinner there is no food (snacks or pastry's, as we have had elsewhere) available anywhere in the hotel. We arrived on the Easter Bank Holiday Monday, so were not surprised to find lots of kids still there, and also a very large amount of French, (probably still French school hols), but the hotel (although full) never seemed crowded, and there is never any problems getting a sun bed, in fact they operate a policy where they go around at the end of the evening, straightening all the sun beds up and closing the umbrellas, and slipping a printed message into the cover on the sunbed explaining that the Hotel has a policy of not allowing any beds to be 'reserved/held' by leaving towels or other objects on them, prior to 10am, and any towels left unattended on sunbeds will be removed by staff, this works well as there are plenty of beds anyway, and it means that everyone can go to breakfast in a relaxed manner and be sure to still get a sunbed if one is wanted. While we stayed they were gradually running down the amount of guests, towards closing the hotel on the 1st of May for a referb, and as mentioned on a previous review, there was minimal disruption, just the odd bit of power tool noise during the day, which you sometimes heard depending in which rooms they were stripping out (the top 3 floors were out of bounds as they had started to prep them for referb) but generally the work was done very considerately and without ant intrusion into our holiday. Porto Morgan is a wonderful place, and the hotel operates a free shuttle bus service, well worth a look, it has a lovely harbour surrounded with nice places to eat, however the market on a Friday (although billed as a big market, not to be missed) in our opinion was a bit of a was out. All in all a very nice location, and a very relaxed holiday, however I must say that with the lack of dining options, evening bars, no free WiFi, chargeable room safes and the poor lifts this hotel in the current market is probably clinging on to its 4 stars by the skin of its teeth.More
Not a bad place
I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel nice junior suite! Food ok,lovely pool but the night time entertainment is very poor! They starting to have a refurbish of the hotel! But didn't notice until the last day when the power tools woke me up in the morning. But was fine as I needed to get up for breakfast! Only downside is that all hotels in taurito are all inclusive so there's no where really to go for a change of scenery unless you go to mo'gan which is well worth a visit! Little Venice More
Excellent holiday from start to finish
We were visiting Taurito to celebrate my 70th birthday so we were with all the family.....10 of us altogether. We had an extremely good Thomson flight from Exeter and as our seats had been pre-booked everything was simple and the flight went like a dream. We were met at the airport in Gran Canaria by the Thomson reps and were soon on our way to our hotel. Upon arrival we were the last group to go through and as we had booked through our local travel agent, all the paperwork was ready and waiting and we had all the rooms that had been requested.....super efficient! We could not fault the holiday. Everything was perfect. I think the only downside was having to pay for wifi connection and no tea making facilities in our room. The hotel was really clean and our rooms were always ready before lunchtime...sometimes even when we went back to change after breakfast. All the staff went about their business quietly and efficiently. The reception staff in particular were efficient and always helpful The sea views are stunning from all rooms in the hotel. We had a family room. sleeping three with an interconnecting door into a second room, also sleeping three. The remaining family had two rooms further along.....one big double and one twin. All rooms were big and the only thing I would say is that they need more sockets for electronic devices but we managed anyway. The food was excellent and always fresh. The one thing that I can say is that during the course of our stay, I didn't see any flys or insects around the food which has to be first when you are in a hot climate. The first thing my young ten year old grandson always said before he went to sleep at night was...."I can't wait for breakfast".....If that isn't a statement worth noting, I don't know what is?! We loved Taurito and I have spoken to other people who have visited too and we are all of the same opinion......wonderful area and great hotels. My husband and I stayed across the bay at the Suite Princess in November last year and that too was an amazing hotel. We did hear that the Princess hotels were due a vast revamp.....looking forward to seeing what you do and we will be back in the future. Many thanks to all concerned.More
