                                                          The villa was perfect for our family, we had four adults and two children, the lay out of the bedrooms was perfect for us. I particularly enjoyed sitting upstairs on the balcony looking out to the amazing view. We spent everyday lounging around the pool, the kids also enjoyed afternoons at the communal pool with the water slides. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. We enjoyed our time so much we have booked to return next year.

                                                          Lovely villa and great owners...

                                                          'Villa Talitas' is in the Residential Tauro complex. It is just as it looks in the pictures. It's a beautiful house and the owners, Juan and Lucia, are a lovely couple who are great to deal with and even called to see us when they visited the Island. The villa is very well equipped. There is a small kitchen with steps down into a dining/living area which has sliding doors that open fully, creating a fantastic indoor/outdoor space. Having the shower outside was great when we needed to cool down! The bedrooms are on the upper levels along with the main bathroom. There's a safe for your valuables and the owners have compiled a booklet packed with useful information. The complex is newly built so it looks great but the pool was empty for the first two weeks of our holiday. This was disappointing as I had cancelled a booking in another area because the property didn't have a pool. Sometimes we were also disturbed by noisey tradesmen who were preparing a unit next door to us for its new owners. These niggles aside, we had a great holiday and very much enjoyed our four week stay in 'Villa Talitas'. The area of Tauro is small, quiet and not built-up. I would recommend hiring a car as the nearest Spar shop is roughly 4 kilometres away. There are two restaurants within walking distance. Amadores beach is a short drive away. It's sheltered, has some watersports and is great for swimming. The beach club is fantastic. There's lots of restaurants along the beach with plenty of free parking but it can get very busy at the weekends. Puerto Rico is a built-up and lively spot which is less than 10 mins by car. The picturesque village of Mogan is roughly 20 mins away. I found eating out to be reasonable and portions were very generous. We visited the waterpark in Maspalomas which was a good day out and had a fantastic experience at the aeroclub (also in Maspalomas) flying over the dunes and coastline of the island. The Watersports club in Puerto Rico also has plenty of activities on offer. We would highly recommend 'Villa Talitas' to those who wish to stay in the Tauro area of Gran Canaria.
