“SO good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

Decided to take the leap and try another new place this time. I was so glad I did. There really isn't a lot wrong with this place. As soon as you walk in you see what a good condition it's in and how clean it is (thanks mainly to June x!)
Its quite a small place with only 12 bungalows so is quite laid back and quiet, especially if most people hit the beach, so if you're a party animal all day long this may be too small for you, but we found it so relaxing during the day.
I have 2 pet hates when staying in the Canaries:
1) stupid little water heaters on the wall that hold enough water for a 20 second shower and then take a half hour to heat up again.
2) freezing cold swimming pools.
Well Club Torso had UNLIMITED HOT WATER for showers and a gorgeous HEATED pool which was a good size for the size of the property.
It really is very difficult to find negatives about this place cos it's the best place I've stayed at in Gran Canaria so far, but if I was being really picky its a lack of space around the pool because there are too many sunloungers around the pool-and there are not enough people to warrant them all, and the other being that there isn't anything nearby-it's a residential neighbourhood. (the Yumbo's a 20 minute walk)
But that's just being very picky because I AM going to stay here again next time!!
(the beds were huge and comfortable and the staff lovely-thank you all!)
see you next year! :-)

I were beginning of January at Club Torso with my boyfriend and it was really over what we expected. Owners are really helpfull and really kind. And other staff OMG! :-D Rob, Daniel and June. We just love them. All so kind, funny and really helpfull.
Room what we had (406) is really cousy, clean and felt like home. Special thanks about big and comfortable bed. ;-)
Atmosphere is really nice. Might be cause its "small" so there isnt so much other customers. :-) swimming pool and jaguzzi in the middle brings spa atmosphere and pool bar crownes it all.

So big thank you Martijn, Richard, June, Daniel and Rob!
We are so comming back.
Yours

We stayed 11 days over Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed Club Torso. It's smaller than some of the other gay complexes in Playa del Ingles but don't let that put you off. The bungalows are spacious and immaculately clean and well kept. There was everything we needed including a microwave oven in the kitchen and a large flat screen tv and free wi fi which worked everywhere (not just round the pool like some of the other resorts). I could even charge my ipod on the radio/ ipod player in the bungalow. Another bonus was that there was no charge for the safe in our room. Beds were really comfortable.

The rest of the clientele during our stay was predominantly Dutch with some French, Scandinavians, Germans, Canadians and Brits making up the rest. The staff here work really hard and couldn't do enough to make us feel comfortable. June the housekeeper (and the only lady allowed in the complex) is an absolute treasure but Richard, Martjin, Daniel and all the team go out of their way to create a great atmosphere. We spent most days by the clothing optional pool which was heated and there is a large jacuzzi and plenty of sunbeds. They allow occasional day visitors but this only added to the atmosphere most of the time.

Taxis were easy to hail outside and cost about 3 euros to the Yumbo centre. It's about a 15 - 20 minute walk to town.

Breakfast was help yourself buffet by the pool - a really good selection, nicely displayed with slight variations on a day to day basis to keep it interesting. There is a wide selection of food and drinks available through out the day from the bar. The supermarket at Faro 2 is only a 5 minute stroll away for other basics.

Some of the bungalows get more sun than others. We were in no. 8 which was shaded all day. Numbers 9, 10, 11 and 12 had sunshine on their terraces all day. I'm not sure if would be the same in summer time.

Club Torso attracts singles and couples who want a quiet day after a busy night in the city. It's probably the cleanest place I've stayed in Gran Canaria, and the owners, Richard and Martijn treat the place as their own baby.

The bungalows are recently and tastefully refurbished - a and the pool area is kept immaculate by the various day workers, the owners normally turn up later in the day.

The breakfast buffet is al fresco by the pool, and basic but adequate, and importantly kept until 11am. If you have special dietary requests, email them up front - all of the staff knew about mine, providing gluten free breakfast/bar food. If you want to take your poolside flirt further, there is a special area for that - if you want wall-to-wall debauchery you're better off in other establishments. However... Both before and after lights out, things can happen if you want them to ;)
A special mention to June, who is the the most super cleaner I ever met. She is discreet, naughty and the only woman allowed into the resort. You'll love her. Talk to her, she's a people person :)

Room Tip: 11 and 12 are the rooms further from the pool and close to the dark room, 4 to 5 are far from the po...

We stayed at this resort with two friends in November.
Friendly staff, clean spacious rooms and very nice pool/jacuzzi area.
It is situated mid point between the dunes and Yumbo centre so it is a 20min walk or cheap taxi ride to either.
Two small points - the breakfast could be better (more varied choice) and closing the bar at 20:00 every evening sort of kills the atmosphere.

An absolute gem of a resort. Extremely well run by Richard and Martijn ( formerly of Villas Blancas ). All the apartments have been completely refurbished to a very high standard. Heated pool and Jacuzzi. Clothing optianal. Excellent atmosphere at the bar with wide selection of food and drinks. They have though of everything. Highly recommended for single, couples or groups. Mixed nationalities, but that makes it interesting.

Room Tip: Only disadvantage is it is slightly out of the centre of the resort. But 15 minute walk or a 4 Euro...

The staff is overworked and unfocused so our introduction was hurried and unclear. The facility is clean and well maintained, but for us it did not have a friendly or welcoming vibe. It is a LONG walk to anything. It just isn't worth staying here unless you want to take a cab everywhere. I would not return.
