You’re only a minute’s walk from the beach at this place – but if you’re staying put, there’s a huge pool and a no-holds-barred waterpark to keep you busy.
This place is home to one of Gran Canaria’s great waterparks, which it shares with the neighbouring Paradise Lago Taurito. It comes with loads of white-knuckle slides, plus plenty for smaller slides, too.
The hotel’s highlights include its own pool, a smart buffet restaurant and huge, contemporary bedrooms. And when you fancy a session on the sand, Taurito Beach is practically on the doorstep.

This onsite waterpark packs a punch. Set in the mountains, you'll be able to whizz down the speedy Kamikaze, take a drop in the Space Bowl or let the little ones loose on the Pirate Ship waterslides.
Just so you know, all of the pools here use saltwater and some of the slides have height restrictions.
- The larger slides have a minimum height restriction of 120cm
- The Pirate Ship and mini-slides have a minimum height restriction of 100cm
The hotel runs this for ages 4-12 years.
With a kids' section.

Last minute booking, great surprise!
Originally booked flights to Florida but cancelled due to hurricane. Booked this hotel 6 days before arrival. Superb hotel, far better than we could have imagined, lovely location with easy access to beach and pools. Plenty of sun loungers which I find is unusual, free admission to the adjacent waterpark, good food , extremely spacious room which easily accommodated myself and 2 adult daughters, lovely view across resort and to the sea. Only gripe was lack of decent entertainment for adults, great for families with small children , nothing for teenagers or adults apart from drinks at the bar. Easy to get to nearby Puerto Rico and Puerto Mogan, both worth a visit.More

Stay here not across the road
After a very enjoyable 11 nights in Valle Taurito, I would definitely recommend it. The rooms are very spacious, food is of a very good standard with lots of places to sit. I must say that the hotel itself is very clean indeed. Not so good points- the entertainment of an evening is in the middle of 3 hotels. With between 400/600 per hotel you can imagine how packed it gets.... The salt water, every pool in this section, and there is a few, are all salt water, so I recommend you bring your goggles or a mask if you have children with you. We came at the end of the summer holiday season (still packed but lots of room Still) we dread to think of every hotel being full, and there being nowhere near enough space for them all. This is only my opinion and some of the guests at the hotel across the way, but it's worth paying that little bit more to stay here than there. I can't name it, but choose this one insteadMore
A Couples View
We have recently returned from the Paradise after 11 nights and will review the Hotel as a couple. However if we had kids it would be great and I am sure the family reviews are much different. The Hotel is set in a Valley leading down to a nice beach area, with hotels either side. The Paradise Chain has 3 o the hotels, and are in charge of the main entertainment in the middle of the hotels, they also have the water park under their wing. There are a row of bars and restaurants on the beach which shut every night at 6 ( this maybe different in peak times ) The Valle where we stayed had one bar yes one bar by the pool which charged for drinks after 11. There was no entertainment or music of an evening in the Bar area and couples sat around playing cards , however there was the main square which was child orientated and even after 9;30 the kids were still around for the shows, and I would like to say that the animation team work tirelessly on these shows. So as a couple if you want a night away from the all inclusive for a meal or a drink you have to go to Morgan ( 20 euros as there has been a landslide , otherwise it is normally 8 ) Amadoers beach ( about 12 euros ) or Puerto Rico ( 15 euros ) there are no other bars you can go to. I would also like to add that my biggest issue was that we spent more money at the supermarket on Bottles of water as they are not available at the hotel , well you do get the obligatory 2 bottles in your fridge when you arrive, but it is not allowed to fill up in the restaurants and there are signs saying this. This is not a totally all inclusive hotel for sure and there are good and bad points which I have listed below. Good very clean big rooms cleaned daily Free WIFI Good food drinks on tap in the restaurant restaurant staff work very hard cleaners are very friendly the grounds are immaculate no issues with sun beds on the sun deck but around pool these were toweled out early. The Animation team work very hard. Water Park was very good but needs updating and repairs. Bad Points No water bottles No Water bottles ( and the water but in the reception does not count) Charging 3 Euros a day to rent the safe which cost us 33 euros , in an all inclusive hotel ?? 10 Euro Deposit required for the use of an iron for a few hours, which was clearly left behind by someone from the UK as it was a 3 pin plug into an adaptor. deposits for the use of towels. only 1 bar which at times had long queues serving cocktails in a 7 up Cup Not adhering to the no Towel on the sun bed rule. No kettles in the room ( this maybe an English thing ) No music or entertainment in the bar area of an evening. Would we come here as a couple again no. Would we come hear if we had a young family yesMore

We returned to paradise valley for the third time to spend our honey moon in a place where we always feel so relaxed and welcome. We have now been three years running and already looking at booking for next year. On arrival we had a bottle of bubbly and a welcome letter wishing us a happy honey moon which was lovely. This was also to be a final holiday for my in laws who due to age do not feel safe going abroad alone now and here they could wonder around and feel safe and comfortable. So here is my feed back. Water park... yes people complain it's salt water but surely most people have visited a beach and been in the sea so I can't see why people make such a big fuss, just use the hotel pool if they don't want to be in salt water and yes may be the travel agents need advertise this in the broucher and advise travellers but think it's unfair to be negative with the hotel. Pool does need bit maintainance but did not impact on our holiday and even the in-laws enjoyed it and felt at ease. Food and drink ... I am a fussy eater but at no point over the last 3 years have I struggled to find something and my mother in law is also limited to what she likes but I have never seen her eat as much as she did and totally enjoyed it . The drinks were great and we did have a few merry moments and could not complain at all so unsure why so many negative feed backs around drinks and yes around the pool it's plastic glasses but would you really want some uncaring person dropping a glass in pool areas and a child or adult cutting feet ECT because I certainly wouldn't. Staff.. At no point have we ever had a problem with any of the staff ,they are friendly,helpful and polite and welcoming. Rooms.. We have never had any concerns around our rooms,they are cleaned daily and have nice views with a large balcony . The staff cleaning the rooms are friendly and respectfull and work really hard and to be respectful in return costs nothing. Maintainance... There are a few path and pool repairs needed but you do see the team out and about doing what they can and at no point did this impact on our stay and wouldn't stop us returning . So all in all another great visit and thank you paradise valley for making it a pleasurable visit ☺☺More

Lovely Hotel, but that's where it stops!
Please note this 4 star rating is purely for the hotel. Stayed in September 2017, as a couple. I like to read reviews myself before travelling so I would hope this will help some of you. I have to agree with most of the reviews below, the Paradise Valle Taurito is a stunning hotel, it is very modern and the rooms are wonderfully spacious. There is a lovely view of the beach from most rooms. I will now list some pros and cons; Pros - Lovely Modern Hotel - Helpful Reception Staff - Lots of Sun Loungers - Great selection of food (even for a fussy easter - like me!) - Nice evening atmosphere, most people playing cards, not much else to do but I'll get to that. - Close to nice beach. - Close to supermarket. Cons - The waterpark is in dire need of renovation, there are broken tiles in every pool, the slides need work. - The Mini GOLF is an absolute shambles, the carpets are all ripped, there was rubbish all over the place. It is beyond me how the Paradise company have not put some money into both the waterpark and mini golf. - The Entertainment, my idea of "hell on earth", this is just away from the hotel in the centre of 4 surrounding hotels. This area is swarming with loud mouth chavs and screaming kids, it felt so cheap and rowdy. My partner and I went here once and never returned it was honestly so so bad. The mini golf is close by to this area so don't expect to play late at night as you will have kids running over the course as you are trying to play. - NOTHING TO DO. If you are after a quiet week away then fine, but if you want something to do of an evening, and to avoid the entertainment, then you will be a bit stuck for something to do, take some playing cards. Once you are at this hotel you are kind of stuck there unless you want to take taxis all over the place to Puerto Rico etc. - Reserving Sun Beds, they have this rule posted all over the hotel, but this rule is NOT ENFORCED AT ALL, all the sun beds are reserved by 7:30am. - Lack of all inclusive drinks, there are some cocktails and spirits on offer for all inc but not as much as I have seen in others. They are served in plastic cups! Also depending on the member of staff who serves you it will be watered down. - 2 Bottles of water as we arrive, I expect 2 bottles a day after the amount we paid and this place being a 4*. - The beds look nice but they are rock hard and only given 1 pillow and a cushion, for those who are used to 2 or even 3 pillows will struggle. - On the last few days a big group of people turned up, and "took over" the kids pool area, drinking and smoking in it, I don't have kids myself but would of been a little intimdating for someone to take their child over there. No staff bothered to say anything to them. All in all this is a great hotel but is let down by it's surroundings.More
