Bungalows Los Almendros Gays Exclusive Vacation Club
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Stayed here many times and have had great holidays under the wings of Respect Holidays and Raymond Oconnor who became manager after Respect holidays went down.

Raymond is no longer at Los Almendros! This is sad!

The place is really ready for a refurb and a major one at that.My partner and I discovered that we gays can now get a package holiday at a 4 star hotel for simlar cost including food and flights and transfers ( Riu Palace is just one example). We always vist for pride and found that at least a third of clients at the mainstream hotels are gay and are very well accepted.

Wake up Los Almendros your pricing, especially at Pride is way too expensive for the quality that you offer.

I think the gay complex will become a memory for many!

Stayed: December 2012

I've been a regular at LA for many years now. The place has gone a bit downhill over the years and needs a lot or investment - the bungalows need complete updating. I think the resort rests on its laurels a bit.
The long-term barman continues to be rude and arrogant and needs to be sorted - it would mean a big increase in the number of people using the bar.
The cleaning ladies are just great - friendly, helpful and very good at their job.
Its a big pity I now hear that Raymond O has been 'let go'. He's the bloke who kept everything together and it appears that already 'things' have started to unravell. Big pity. So, maybe its no more LA for me then.

Room Tip: Go with caution

Great location for beach, Cita, Yumbo. Bungalows comfortable but could do with some renovation e.g. lighting options could be improved. Very friendly staff. Very international crowd. Good security. Wi-fi is no longer free.

Room Tip: Room by the pool?

Visited October and going back in January....really good location opposite the Cita Centre for the supermarket and Cafe Wein. Short distance to beach and Yumbo. Yes, apartment is a bit basic and could do with minor updating (shower tiling a bit grotty) but impact of this is minimal. Raymond and good looking guy behind reception couldnt be more friendly! Book yourself a massage at reception, would strongly recommend. Food is quite often fried which isn't ideal for the health conscious - unsure why there isnt a grill - and a bit pricey. But you don't have to eat there and there are plenty of other places to eat. I would say that one member of the bar staff is pretty rude and ought to go!! Still very relaxing on a lounger in the sun.

Room Tip: Rooms around pool good, but avoid corners, due to loungers.

Close to the beach and Ymbo Centre. Very clean and quiet. To be very picky the bungalows could do with updating. We were concerned about the availability of sun beds due the open door policy but will stay again. All the staff were so nice and friendly the cleaning lady especially she tidy and cleans so well we would have liked to have taken her home with us. We will be booking next year

Room Tip: Very good value for money friendly staff

The complex is next to the Cita centre and a short walk to the Yumbo.
Bungalows are basic with everything you need, some updating would be nice but everything works.
Secure complex with security during the night, did'nt have or see any problems.
Every relaxed atmosphere, friendly and the ground are well maintained,

Room Tip: Try and get a bungalow facing the sun 13-17 by the pool

I can't understand why others put reviews on here slating the place ! For what you pay it is great value for money and has all the amenities that you need . Yes the rooms are quite basic but come on guys do you fly thousands of miles to sit in your room all day ! This was our second visit and already booked for next September we find it very relaxing down by the pool in the day with guaranteed good weather , the service is very good anything you need is provided , in the evening restaurants , shops , yumbo etc all very close by . The whole complex is immaculate , the pool cleaned every day , very friendly too so would highly recommend a stay here to anyone thinking of giving it a go .

Room Tip: This time we stayed in room 23 and really liked it as it is poolside but a bit more private being in...
