“Great place in great venue”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

If you are looking for a beautifully run gay villa complex on the outskirts of Maspolamas that suits both couples and singles a like then look no further. This is such a friendly place with uniquely round apartments in well kept grounds with a small pool and 6 person jacuzzi. It also has a fabulous roof terrace with four poster sun loungers and other comfortable seating if you don't fancy sitting by the pool or the beach. If you do want to head to the Dunes / Yumbo then free transport can be booked the day before or a cab costs €5. Nice mix of nationalities and age groups and most guests seem to be returning visitors. Rooms are nicely appointed and kept clean throughout your stay. Pool has a bar that serves all types of drinks and poolside light snacks to keep you fed and watered whilst relaxing.

We loved our stay and would definitely be returning next time we head to Gran Canaria

Let's keep this simple...Book it! This place is just the best. Ok you are NOT in the centre of the gay scene but you are only 5-10 minutes away in a cab from the yumbo centre, which at the time would cost no more than €5 each way.

The hotel is faultless. It's small, friendly, clean, and run by the most adorable couple. Nothing is too much trouble and whatever you need they will get it for you.

The pool bar is great. The cocktails are fabulous and so is the food and is really well priced. Expect to pay around €5 for a cocktail in the hotel and around the island.

The rooms are small and comfortable. You get a nice bathroom with shower and a kitchen which has a fridge and a double ring Cooker. The pool are is small but nice. Nice surroundings and plenty of loungers. You are also able to sunbath nude around the pool and this is something that is well practiced amongst holiday makers.

If you of a partying kind, whi is looking for pool parties, pool games, loud music and love entertainment, this is NOT for you. If on the other hand you are looking for a fantastic place to stay away from the gay scene but close enough to go, with excellent accommodation and fantastic service, then loom no further.

We came here for our honeymoon and we are soo glad we did.

Just book it, you won't be dissapointed. Just to let you know, we booked the hotel transfer for €30 which might sound a lot. However it was worth every penny. There was a brand new merc waiting for us to whisk up to the hotel. Fantastic service!

ps. There was not one cockroach or rat to be seen. It's spotless here.

Really had a great time here! Try a nice cocktail at the bar, Emilio makes a great Piña Colada, the hamburgesa is also great. Yumbo is only 10 min a way by taxi. But the great thing is that the beach is just a minut walk away. If you want a double bed book a studio. The appartements only have single beds that can bed put togheter.

Stayed for 10 days at Pasion Tropical with my partner. So glad I stayed there and not in the middle of all the 'action'. The gardens & pool area are simply beautiful, the service very good (thanks, guys!), the rooms well-appointed and functional, and the location, while a bit outside Maspalomas/Playa del Ingles, is right on the beach. Mixed-age audience, and we made some good friends as well. We enjoyed the beauty and tranquility, and the promenade-walk to the Dunes/beach every day.
Tip: Try 'Entre Nous' (French) and 'Wapa Tapas' (Tapas) in the Yumbo center...amazing food & the greatest hosts/owners!

Loved the place, it is a little jewel in Canarias. Very helpful and kind staff, beatiful and well taken of gardens, nice sceneray from the top, clean, cute dogs (very uggly though). Just a few meters away from the beach, some little supermarkets, a shopping center with a gym 15 minutes away walking. Walked a few times to Playa del Ingles and Yumbo on the walkway near the ocean with beautiful scenery. Funtastic! Recommend it :)

I decided to stay at the Pasion Tropical in January to catch some sun. The Hotel wasn't fully booked but it still opened the pool-bar, reception etc. as normal. I liked especially that it is a small complex, which is hard to find near Maspalomas and Playa del Ingles. The location was perfect. Located in St. Augustin, it is only a 5 Euro cap drive to playa del Ingles and one can even walk on the beach (ca. 40minutes) and get there. It is more quiet but still in close to the dunes and Yumbo Center. There is also a shuttle service going to the Dunes and to the Yumbo center.
The rooms (studios) are simple but lovely! I enjoyed my stay very much and would choose it over a faceless 5 star hotel.
PS: the puppies of the hotel are sweethearts and do not touch you unless you want them too (besides you have food on you :-))

Just back from a weeklong stay at Pasion Tropical.

My partner and I have experienced a couple of very stressful years due to my (68 yr old) medical problems - we needed a relaxing, restful break and we had one. The roof terrace is GREAT for relaxing.

Information provided on arrival was comprehensive , clear and very helpful. The staff (Emilio, Aki & Viky) were very helpful and friendly even if some of their English was not brilliant, but, hey, this is Spain so learn some before you go! One reviewer complained about needing to be out of your room before Viki cleaned - rubbish! We found her to be helpful and accommodating if we were in our room when she needed the time to keep the room beautifully clean.

We found the rooms comfortable; we had a "duplex" with plenty of space and facilities for self catering especially for those of us who have cooked for 40 on a boat with less space! The breakfast good value at €7 (if booked in advance); we never needed any lunch. The local restaurant list very helpful - the one we chose (Adio Mare) proved of consistently good quality and value - thanks for the recommendation.

The complex is compact but beautifully designed. During our stay there was always plenty of room around the pool/sun area, but the roof terrace was our favourite place, even at night. It is delightful. There are several 2-person sunbeds each on their own circular terrace, a dining area and a seating area with sofas. It was always possible to find your own private corner either for sunbathing, relaxing or reading with the odd drink or three! All with sea view.

The beach only a few seconds away and there are very pleasant walks along the sea front up to San Agustin central and Playa des Ingles.

San Augustin is away from the main ‘gay’ areas but taxis are cheap and if you feel the need for the Yumbo or the Dunes, Pasion Tropical provides a free taxi service to both at appropriate times of the day.

Overall a great friendly relaxing atmosphere, friendly helpful staff, good value, clean and welcoming - we shall be back!
