Part of the Gran Canaria scene for even longer than we've been around, and that's saying something, the Tenesor are located approximately between the Yumbo Centre and the start of the beach and just above stylish cocktail venue Detox Retox.
With a choice of one and two bedroom apartments and, although mixed, a high proportion of gay guests, the Tenesor are well known, extremely popular and represent excellent value for money. Perfect for singles, couples and groups of friends who like to be at the centre of everything, the Tenesor are comfortable and well looked after. One bedders are generally in short supply, so do try to book as early as you can if that's what tickles your fancy.
Although extremely popular with gay holidaymakers, bear in mind that – like lots of mixed, gay friendly accommodation – the Tenesor does attract a high proportion of straights during high season.
There are both 1 & 2 bedroom apartments economically priced with a large swimming pool, separate living/kichen area as well as bedroom, bathroom and private terrace. The apartments are well maintained and comfortable. More than likely, the best gay friendly deal on the island.
For those who can't bear to be more than a hop, skip and jump away from the nightlife, the Tenesor is a very gay friendly apartment complex located in the heart of Playa del Ingles - leaving you just five minutes walk from the Yumbo and, in the other direction, the beginning of the rolling dunes of Maspalomas! Also within the complex building you'll find gay bars Retox-Detox and the Rainbow café bar and next door is the lesbian bar First Lady!
The complex consists of clean, comfortable and affordable one bedroom (sleeping up to 3 people, with the 3rd person sleeping on a sofa-bed that's smaller than a usual single bed) and two bedroom (sleeping up to 5 people, with the 5th person sleeping on a sofa-bed that's smaller than a usual single bed) apartments, all with balconies overlooking the pool.
The Tenesor has its own good sized pool as well as sunbathing terraces plus should you wish to entertain at night you'll be pleased to know that you don't have to sneak your new found chico/a past a guard as there is no night time reception!
Rooms at the Tenesor vary tremendously in terms of style and size but all feature either one or two bedrooms, a sitting room with sofa bed & kitchenette, private bathroom and private balcony.
All accommodation is clean & comfortable and offers good value for money.
Safety deposit boxes are available to hire from Reception - a small charge is payable locally.
Rooms are serviced 5 times a week, towels are changed 3 times a week and bed linen once.
The Tenesor has a daytime reception only. Arrivals after 5pm will require an airport transfer. We can arrange this for you at a cost of Euros 35 for a car for 3. (maximum) Please indicate if you require an airport transfer on your booking form.
