Just back from one week in the Paradise Vallee hotel in Taurito, Gran Canaria. Holiday was booked through Falcon Holidays / TUI. The hotel is set in a very small resort (couple of hotels and aparthotels with a central plaza where entertainment was held and a central waterpark) and we went all inclusive as did most (if not all) others in the hotel. Check in was really speedy - room spacious and nicely decorated though I don't think it would be considered 4 star in Ireland. Very clean. Hotel itself was also nice and clean and plenty of staff around. I had requested a quiet room and got one on 4th floor - noise at night from the entertainment was pretty loud but got earplugs to sort that. Food buffet style. Plenty of choice. But most of the hot food was luke warm at best. The resort is unusual in that there are no evening restaurants to eat in (you need to travel to a town nearby via taxi/car for that). Snack food at pool bar not great at all - bread and cold meats/cheese - no burgers/hotdogs or similar for kids. Entertainment team seemed to work hard and were friendly but we didn't participate in the activities. Also note that some of the activities in the area have to be paid for (€10 for round of mini golf on a course that could certainly use some upgrading). Little amusement arcade with bowling, air hockey, pool tables nearby definitlely needs investment as most machines broken when we were there. Location is peaceful with a small sandy beach but the downside is the cost to get to nearest village (Mogan) - about €12-15 each way in taxi; Maspalomas about €28 each way in a taxi.
We had great weather and spent most of our holiday on the beach (€9 for two sunbeds and a parasol) when not off taking excursions. All in all a good holiday but I would probably look to go to a slightly busier more central area in Gran Canaria next time.
