“First time @ Tropical La Zona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

Currently staying here for 3 weeks and as my normal place I stay at had changed ownership I was recommended to stay here. I have been very impressed with the overall complex , facilities are good and the staff are very helpful and friendly.
There is a lovely pool area with a nice bar which serves not so expensive and nice food. There is also washing machine facilities and as I have been here for quite some time this has been a huge benefit. There is wifi throughout the resort with good connections. The complex is very well looked after and location is great and central for beach and Yumbo.
I would absolutely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a gay resort with excellent facilities and in the right location. Thanks guys , it's been great and I shall return xx

Room Tip: I would prefer not to be facing the pool and in a more quiet location, if you prefer it more quiet t...

I stayed at the Tropical La Zona a or a week on my own and I must say the staff are extremely friendly and welcoming, can't do enough for you sort of thing which is always a nice feeling. Although I travelled on my own, I felt very comfortable at all times. I had a bungalow near the pool, probably about 3 metres to the nearest sun lounger! :)
The place is 10mins walk from the Yumbo - or if you walk at snails pace, let's go for 15 :)
It is a more decent walk to the Sand Dunes, my pace 35mins :) .. any of the staff will direct you - both easy enough to find.
The bungalow itself is equipped with everything you need unless you are thinking of cooking a slap up meal that is!
Be sure to ask for a quieter bungalow if you want complete peace and quiet away from the pool area, where they normally play music all day - but not exactly loud by any means.
If you want a lovely local meal, I would definitely recommend the El Carreton, just a few minutes walk away from the complex- absolutely lovely fresh cooked local grub!
All in all, would definitely stay here again. I always like the fact the owners and indeed the staff ( especially Neil!) take great pride in their work

Room Tip: I stayed in room 14, which is opposite the pool bar and to the corner of the pool

Maspalomas Pride takes over the town one week in May - Tropical la Zona is a great destination for those that want to enjoy the parties during the day (and night) at the nearby Jumbo while coming 'home' to peace and quiet. Set in beautiful tropical gardens you'll feel you've escaped.

We feel we paid a premium compared to other complexes in the area and as we prefer to dine in the amenities restrict what you can realistically rustle up. Mismatching crockery and cutlery, a ageing kettle and toaster could be replaced with little cost - but makes all the difference at breakfast.

The apartments are clean and serviced every third day - the staff friendly and personable. The gym is ideal for a quick 'pump up' and if you're in the mood for playtime, you'll find it at Tropical la Zona.

Room Tip: Apartments 1 and 2 are the most private without noise from the pool or street.

We've stayed at Tropicallazona 2 years in a row during Maspalomas pride. The main attraction for us was the pool and the gardens which are great. The bungalows are ok but you can get similar of better nearby for a lot less money and just pay the 5 euros day fee to come join the pool here. Our main issue with the bungalow is that for a self catering unit it really is not equipped well enough. It's a challenge to make anything other than a sandwich and a boiled egg! If you do book here, think about where you want to be in the complex - stay clear of the pool and the street side if you want peace and quiet ..

Room Tip: Units 1-4 and 10-12 are quiet - away from street and pool.

I spent a week at Tropical la Zona with my partner and we both enjoyed our visit. We booked a one bedroom bungalow and the resort gave us a bungalow opposite the pool area. The resort is set within beautiful garden area with a mixrure of flowers, palms and cacti. The bungalow was a generous size, clean and well decoratedand the satt was very helpful. overall highly recommended

clean, quiet, great value for money
on top of that atmosphere of freedom
friendly, run by a couple business
small bar + lunch
within walking distance to Yumbo and the beach (if you know which way to get there)
use the bus from the airport (around 4 euro per person) instead of taxi (nearly 40)
highly recommended
can't wait another visit
thanks Guys!

I spent a week at Tropical la Zona with a friend and we both very much enjoyed our visit. We booked two one bedroom bungalows and the resort kindly gave us neighbouring bungalows.
The resort is set within lovely gardens - a mixrure of flowers, palms and cacti. The bungalows are a very generous size and are decorated in a contemporary/rustic style, each has it's own patio area with a table and chairs. The pool area is great, clothing-optional with plenty of sun-loungers. The bar sells snacks and salads along with various breakfasts, all of the food options are simple, but very well priced - most dishes cost 4 or 5 euros. The owners are a couple, and they work at the resort, this unique dinamic between the guests and the resort owners creates a warm client-focussed experience. Wifi is free but the speed (like all of Gran Canaria) isn't great, but better than other places I've stayed at.
I can't fault Tropical la Zona. Perfect location near the Yumbo, peacefu pool and excellent customer service.

Room Tip: My bungalow purple and located in the pool area, the bar plays music (which I liked). If you would p...
