Los Almendros, Gran Canaria, Spain

Los Almendros is a gated holiday complex in Playa Del Ingles, Gran Canaria. The complex is run by gay travel company Respect for gay men only. These are my pluses and minuses of Los Almendros.


1. The complex is entirely gated from the outside world.

2. Only gay men stay at Los Almendros so there are no noisy families.

3. There is an on site bar, restaurant and swimming pool.

4. Satellite Television is available in each chalet.

5. Nudity is allowed, if you want to.

6. There is a welcome meeting when you arrive to meet others staying in the complex.

7. The staff are mostly friendly.


1. Los Almendros is not right next to the main gay/lesbian entertainment center (Jumbo). But a taxi only costs about 2 euro and there are many taxis available.

2. The cooking equipment in the chalets is fairly basic. Two hot plates, a kettle, pots, pans, plates and cutlery. No microwave or oven.

3. The manager of Los Almendros seems to be in a permanent bad mood, though the rest of the staff are friendly and helpful.

4. The pool side can get very busy so sometimes there is no space left for sunbathing.

5. A deposit is required for access to the air conditioning in the chalets.

6. There is an extra charge of a few euro per day to access the satellite television.

Overall, I would recommend Los Almendros as place to stay whilst in Gran Canaria. It is convenient, clean and well organised.
