Taurito is a small holiday resort on the west coast of Gran Canaria which suited us perfectly as we don't like busy, built up areas. The apartment is on the top floor (7th)
of the building and has two balconies both furnished with a table a chairs. It is well equipped, has comfy beds and good shower - both essential! The swimming pool is on the roof of the building with children's pool and this was a lovely area kept spotlessly clean with lots of sun beds and we often had it to ourselves so very quiet.Great selection of DVD's meant we had plenty of films to watch in the evenings. Taurito itself is mainly All-inclusive hotels which means that unfortunately there aren't any restaurants open in the evenings, but we found some good places to eat along the coast at Tauro and just along the road from the apartment was a hotel called Cala Blanca which had a great restaurant open to non- residents with excellent food and great service. The pretty resort of Puerto Mogan is around the headland from Taurito and can be seen from the bay but there had been a landslide and so the road between the two was closed, which meant a much longer trip to get there but well worth it. The small beach in Taurito was okay but the beaches at Tauro, Amadores and Puerto Mogan were our favourites. All together a lovely relaxing holiday and we were lucky to have the perfect weather to go with it.
My wife and I recently returned after 10 day holiday in the excellent top floor apartment at Balcon De Taurito. The apartment provided an excellent base to see the South of the island being only a few minute walk from the bus stops going east and west and a well used taxi rank. The swimming pool was also an excellent asset ,being only a minute from the apartment at the top of the building and when we were there was hardly used.
The apartment was well equipped and included WiFi and DVD payer and collection of tapes and had two balconies with tables and chairs on both.
A large bottle of water and bottle of sparkling wine in the fridge on arrival was a nice touch and much appreciated especially as we arrived in the evening.
Had a great stay and would highly recommend this place!! Stunning views over the valley and the hills opposite!
