May last yr I write my first review. A year later I can say that the price quality is as before if not improved. A new çrew member'by the name of Daniel is an ad on the the Torso resort.
When comparing the other gay resorts in maspalomas don't forget to think of the comparables you will find typically in Torso and not always in the other resorts like a heated pool in winter, clean whirlpool, working wifi, fully equiped bar and free breakfast (and if you like they fry you an egg on the spot).
I learned from Martijn - one of the owners - that though the mattrasses I more than good for me - he will replace them in a few months, this as part of the process to renew and upkeep the resort and its bungalows in new condition. As mentioned in my earlier, we have stayed at a lot of gay resorts on Canaries, Torso gives in ouropinion the best price value, in particular taken the said in the first paragraph!
Some buzz words: very clean resort/bngalows; well furnished; more than adequate amenities (from dark room to sunbeds and towels); good kitchen; balanced lunch and dinner menu; walking distance to Yumbo/Beach; very sociable, attentive but discreet employees/owners.
Bungalow: (14 in number) are comfortable with good bed & big cupboard; flat screen TV & blue-tooth speakers for smartphone; Bath tub/shower with good watter pressure and indeed giving warm watter; clean smell.
Wi-Fi is free and working very well (indeed the first time after having visited 6 other gay bungalow parks). For once a gay complex that understands the need of a clear cut no nonsense operating Wi-Fi (I counted at least 6 signal amplifiers!)
The heated pool is more than adequate if not big in size, the same goes for the (also heated) whirlpool that can have about 8-10 guests.
After experiencing quite some decline and fall of other Gran Canaria's gay bungalow parks Torso remains a well maintained gem!
Bungalow 411/412/407/406/401 and 402 are around the (whirl) pool, but as the bar closes around 21.00 and the whirlpool is shut down at the same time it is very peacefull thereafter.
Bungalow 410 is opposite the dungeon (not too much traffic though); The others have the advantage to be away from the pool but than closer to the road. We slept in one next to the road (409) however had no problem at all to have a good sleep as the trafic dies in the night.
Don't be hesitant to ask the owners for a specific bungalow, they are happy to advice and make your wish come thrue.
For the quick shopping there a grocery shops etc 3 min. by foot.
For the lazy ones, taxi to yumbo is only 3 euro.
So I would say all in all a very good choice!
