“Nice gay stay, but basic, but good value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2010

We booked a two-room and the location of the bungalow was excellent overlooking the pool. Pool is very clean, but cool, but well liked. Surround all concrete with some nice plants - needs more. Very clean, but room was damp when we arrived, and had occasional drain smell. Kitchen small, sufficiently equipped, but only one power point on a loose light switch, which meant coffee maker was balanced on the hob. Basin in bathroom cracked badly. Shower good enough. Nice to have bidet.
Beds plain and hard. Glad I took my own pillow as the supplied ones are very thin. Good wardrobe, though few hangers. TV only had spanish channels. No catering facilities, so not a sgood as Los ALmendros, but it was basically all gay - apart from the two straight couples, however they were asked to keep away from the pool which they did.
Well run, nice people, low cost, self catering. Noisy from Kasbah centre opposite so better if you are out late.
Wifi either on a national weekly subscription or in cafe opposite.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2009

This is a really good complex, which is private and quiet. We stayed in bungalow 8 which seems to be the best one just by the pool. The complex is very clean, and the two guys who run it are very helpful. It is a really relaxed atmosphere and we never seen one cockroach! The only things that let the proprerty down are dodgy electrics in the flat, could only use one electrical appliance at a time or it would trip the whole flat, the toilet flush kept breaking and the beds were really hard and the tv only had 2 channels.

Three of us stayed at the Gay Tenesoya Bungalows in Playa Del Ingles Gran Canaria (run by Teddy Travel - www.tenesoya.de). A mixture of 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom bungalows. Basic but perfectly clean, adequate and a nice and well maintained pool (if a little cold - as most are). Only about 10-12 mins walk from the Yumbo centre.

The odd thing - there are 12 bungalows in total and apart from one other being used we were the only ones staying there (31st Jan to 9th Feb). Was surprised how quiet it was, especially considering the value for money (approx €50 per night for 1 bedroom and a bargain €65 per night for the 2 bedroom). Most, if not all, other gay accommodations now charge €65 plus per night (for 1 bedroom).

I can only assume they are badly promoted or maybe it's the location - as it's north of the yumbo they are a fair way from the dunes. Some people may be put off by the proximity to the Kasbah Centre (where during late hours you may get approached by the odd prostitute, mild drug dealer and may pass some rowdy revellers - but really nothing serious, it never felt unsafe or threatening, even walking alone). We would certainly go back

  • Liked — value for money - two bedrooms
  • Disliked — not the best location
