We Are the only boutique gay resort in front of the ocean in Gran Canaria!
The one and only gay resort renowned for its style since 1998, in tropical-modern decoration, immersed in lush tropical gardens, in an area where the surroundings are green and the atmosphere is exotic, yet only 5 minutes drive in our Free Shuttle from the Yumbo Center and the Dunes.
One of the very few resorts in Gran Canaria constantly on the market for such a long time thanks to constant renovation, satifaction of our guests and dedication of our staff.
"Great place for a relaxing holiday"
This place is a gem, perfectly located away from the madness of Maspalomas but close enough to enjoy when needed. The views of the ocean from the rooftop are amazing, its the perfect place to sit and watch the sun rise or set. The rooms have all the amenities you need including a well-equipped kitchenette. -Mutsa, Australia
"Great place to stay"
The roof area is absolutely amazing, wifi is not great but it works enough. -Andrei, Great Britain
"An unusual and charming gay gem not to be missed."
A uniquely designed and attractive complex interconnected with beautiful garden pathways. The semicircular bedrooms are well finished and contemporary. The amazing roof terrace with its stylish day beds and sea views is superb. The breakfast spread is good and even includes gluten free bread. The area is really quiet and all you can hear is the sea. It is a 40 minute promenade along the coast to Playa Del Inglés but just €5 by taxi. -Mr D Martin White, Great Britain
"Wonderful and relaxing place"
You cannot pick a better spot in the Playa Del Ingles area. Away from the hustle and bustle of the actual town center (they are in San Augustin), you can hear the lovely ocean waves crashing on the beach from your bed. Beautiful gardens. Equally beautiful, very large rooftop that rivals those of some fancy 5-star hotels I've stayed at but without the hoard of customers. Extremely quiet at night made for a very good sleep. Beach is right outside the door (walk across the small parking lot) with washroom and shower facilities. Taxi rides to the bars/nightlife cheap and quick. Be aware the rooms do not have AC. Thought it may be a problem but it wasn't 90% of the time with the nice breeze, except for an unusually hot evening on the last day where it would have definately helped (bear in mind where we are from... we like the cold for a good sleep ;-) -Pé, Canada
"First visit in Gran Canaria and would come again"
Perfectly loacted in quite neighbors, yet you can get to anywhere with taxi (£4-7). Nice food and drinks at hotel bar, all people are quite relaxed and lovely. Would recommend. -Jonnie, Great Britain
"Superfriendly gay resort"
Wonderful place, very friendly staff and beautiful cosy atmosphere. Also Very good food and drinks. We almost didn't wanted to leave! -Magnus, Sweden
Pasion Tropical is the gay complex with style in Gran Canaria. It is the only gay complex by the ocean in Playa del Ingles.
This boutique resort is immersed in a lush landscaped tropical garden and has a priviliged location, right in front of the San Agustin beach, away from the concrete jungle of Playa del Inglese city centre, but still only 5 minutes away from its nightlife! A FREE SHUTTLE SERVICE runs several times day and night to the dunes and the Yumbo center.
Their spectacular rooftop sundeck, a 200 m2 terrace is overlooking the sea just 20mt away from it has a rooftop garden and alcove beds where you can sunbathe and relax in the fresh ocean breeze. A new addition is a massage gazebo where you can have a professional masseur to pamper your body privately in the garden. Free wifi internet connection is available.
The complex has a swimming pool, open air jacuzzi, small but effective gym in a quiet corner of the garden.
They offer studios and apartments, all beautifully decorated in tropical ethnic style with large LCD satellite TVs.
Studios are the simple accommodation solution at Pasion Tropical, ideal for singles and "sporty" couples. They are made of a large sleeping room with a double bed, a fully equipped kitchenette in the room and a wide bathroom with shower.
They all have satellite T.V., eating table for two and may be first floor or ground floor, respectively either with sea view or with terrace.

Our pool is not huge, but very cosy and is completed by our 6-place open air whirlpool. It resembles a natural tropical lake, surrounded by lush vegetation. The pool is solar panel heated, so that we can keep it pleasantly warm all year round! Another Pasion Tropical exclusive feature, pools are generally not heated in Playa del Ingles resorts.
We have a pool bar, of course, and, apart from the usual drinks and spirits, we concentrate in offering you an unusual and truly home-prepared selection of tropical and Mediterranean specialty drinks and snacks. You'll be able to choose fresh tropical fruit shakes and fruit salads from our menu, or have a very tempting Pina Colada or a fruit Daiquiri made expressly in front of you with fresh pineapple from the island.
NEXT TO THE SEA
Only Pasion Tropical unique location 20 meters from the sea can offer you our exclusive 180 square meters rooftop solarium with splendid seaview.
RELAX AND MASSAGE
White day beds with a view for sunbathing during the day and “La Luna Lounge” with open air sofas, soft light and chill out music for relaxing and meeting friends before and... after sunset! This really is a unique balcony on the ocean.
We have a cosy massage gazebo in the garden, where you can have every kind of massage by our professional masseurs in the fresh garden air, but in full privacy behind closed white draperies!
Also we have equipped our complex with a simple but effective gym. It is located in the shade in a quiet corner of the garden, and it will give you the chance of working out breathing fresh air. You will find a multiple machine, a pectoral bench, barbells, dumbbell, and weight disks for a total of 80 kilos!
Breakfast is served under the gazebo in the main “square” of our village. We prepare a continental breakfast buffet at 9.15 a.m. and keep it working until 11.30 a.m. As you can see breakfast is late, to give you the chance to wake you up without having to hurry, and start your day in the tropics in the laziest way possible! The singing of our birds and the sound of the water of our fish pond will do the rest to complete the morning atmosphere.
Gay nightlife here is at its best and is amongst the liveliest in the world! It has its focal point in the Yumbo Center, 5 minutes by taxi from Pasion Tropical. It is a huge commercial center which transforms itself at night in the Mecca for every kind of gay clubs and bars. There is literally a place for every taste. From quiet cafes to cruising bars to the loudest discos open till early in the morning, the range of offer of the 40 or so places to choose from in the Yumbo is virtually endless.
BEACHES AND DUNES
Gran Canaria has the greatest concentration of beaches in all the Canary Islands. There are beaches of black volcanic sand, and beaches of golden desert sand, small rocky bays, and huge stretches of dunes ending into the sea.
Famous Maspalomas Dunes are a huge extension of sand, literally a piece of desert, about 8 kilometres long and 3 kilometres wide. This is where the gay and nudist beach is located. Right in front of Pasion Tropical the San Agustin and Las Burras beaches are medium size beaches of dark volcanic sand.
Both of them have an area with sun beds and umbrellas as well as big areas where you can freely lie on the sand. For those who like nature and quietness there are still some desert, unspoiled and wild beaches and rocky bays to be found just some kilometres away from Pasion Tropical.
