All of the gay-exclusive choices for accommodation are to be found in the south of the island, in the resorts of Maspalomas and Playa del Ingles.
Where the beach and sand dunes start in Maspalomas you'll find the hotels and complexes there are very gay-friendly and in Playa del Ingles where the Yumbo Center is located (home to almost all of the gay bars, restaurants, clubs and shops) any hotel or complex close-by is also gay-friendly.
The obvious advantage of staying in a gay-exclusive complex is the atmosphere, all the other guests bieng gay the complex then becomes clothing-optional, you can relax with your partner, your only concern about other guests looking is if they are cruising you!
Another is gay-exclusive complexes are generally furnished and maintained to a much higher standard than those of their mainstream counterparts and also include extras such as gay porn channels, jacuzzi by the pool and one complex even has a dedicated cruising area of their garden sectioned off for extra privacy!
Occasionally there are pool-parties organised and the pool area opens up for non-residents during the day adding extra atmosphere. Another advantage (for most) of course is no children.
All these extra touches in a small complex cost the management so the prices can be higher than the mainstream options.
"Gay-friendly" complexes are often larger and can offer facilities the gay choices don't such as a sauna, spa or fully-equipped gym. If you want 4-star luxury or more, I can only think of one small gay-exclusive choice whilst there are a dozen or more very large gay-friendly and luxury hotels.
The last big advantage can often be price, especially in the months that families don't travel such as May (gay pride!), June, September and early October. The mainstream hotels drop their prices considerably and often have some great special offers.
