In the twenty-first century the idea of the exclusively ‘gay’ hotel is fast becoming an anachronism. There are still plenty of people who feel more comfortable in a BLGT - bi, lesbian, gay, transgendered – setting, although there are even more who are finding a welcome in mixed accommodation.
Simple economics and the fall of Franco have made things much easier for the BLGT traveller in Spain and in Andalucía in particular. As the overwhelming support for same-sex marriages in Spain has shown, post-Franco Spain has discovered a remarkable tolerance. But as with nightlife, hotels are rarely gay-specific. It can more or less be assumed that in this enlightened atmosphere most decent hotels in Andalucía are ‘gay friendly’.
