Avenida Estados Unidos 28, Playa del Ingles, Gran Canaria | map | distance

9.3 Fantastic - based on 217 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel? Stylish new hotel. Walk to Yumbo Center. Free WiFi.

New designer hotel in the Playa del Ingles. A small fortune was spent converting a 70’s building into a stylish, avant garde hotel that sets new standards, both in terms of environment and service.

Guest rooms have fabulous views of the ocean and Maspalomas dunes from their furnished balconies. The hotel has its own pool, sun terrace, gym, a luxurious Thai-inspired spa and a gorgeous rooftop restaurant with 360° views.

Located just a 10 minute walk from the gay nightlife in the Yumbo Center. The beach is also just a few minutes’ walk away. However you will probably need a taxi to get to the Hut 7 area.

Lopesan Baobab Resort5 stars

Calle Mar Adriático 1, Meloneras, Gran Canaria | map | distance

Why this hotel? Unique design. Near the gay beach & dunes.

One of just a few hotels on Gran Canaria that can actually claim to have some ‘wow’ factor. Lopesan Baobab Resort features a huge 21-metre-high, African-styled as the central building.

This 5-star resort is set within tropical garden with swimming pools, waterfalls and a river, ensuring that everyone have their own space to chill out.  Guest rooms & suites are very comfortable, each with air conditioner, minibar, HDTV and WiFi.

Location-wise, Lopesan is one of the closest hotels to the Maspalomas gay beach & cruising area (about 600 metres). You will need a taxi to get to the gay bars & clubs in the Yumbo Center.
