AxelBeach Maspalomas is part of the international Axel gay hotel chain. Like all the hotels in the group, AxelBeach is designed with gay men in mind, but is hetero-friendly. This makes it a particularly good option for gay visitors traveling with straight friends, as most of the gay hotels in Gran Canaria are gay-only.
The hotel has 92 apartments, all of which sleep two or three people. All the apartments are spacious and comfortable, decorated in a simple but modern style. They all feature a lounge area, bathroom, kitchenette, separate bedroom, and a furnished balcony. The latter can either overlook the street or the hotel’s beautiful pool and gardens.
The lounge garden is a special addition to AxelBeach, a lush patch of greenery with Hawaiian hammocks that’s the perfect spot for some quiet chill-out time. Meanwhile, the pool is a great place to enjoy the Canarian sun, with plenty of sun loungers, stylish beds, and a cool Sky Bar serving delicious cocktails and snacks throughout the day.
At night, the bar becomes an excellent mingling spot, giving you an opportunity to meet up with fellow gay and hetero-friendly guests before heading out to Yumbo for the night. The gay nightlife center is only about 10 minutes away on foot, so you can save up your taxi money for trips to the Maspalomas gay beach.
AxelBeach has a wellness center offering massages and luxury treatments, and there is also a hairdresser and a barber on site to keep you looking sharp. For gym bunnies, there is a decently-sized, well-equipped gym on site.
