Me and my friend visited this venue for afternoon sunbathing at this gay establishment. We were both very disappointed with the old/retired gay clientele and we thought the Eur 10 entrance to use the facilities was very expensive. Then I revisited the venue again on Easter Sunday on my own as I was promised that they organise a free Barbecue included in the Eur 10 entrance….The BBQ only consisted out of two sausages and a piece of bread….no salads. I left shortly after as I fancied something more for food on a Easter Sunday.

5th stay at the basement and it is very well improved since my first visit. Very well located just in front of the Yumbo center where you can find everything you need (shops, bars, restaurants, disco...). So it could be a bit noisy at night . Bus stop to/from the airport is just around the corner.
The place was refreshed 3 years ago and the furniture changed. It is comfortable. Staff is very helpful and friendly.
Continental breakfast is rather good. it is very nice to have it on the terrace in the morning.
Free wifi / free TV on demand.
I definiively wll come back

Room Tip: Bungalow 1 & 3 and the studio are located on the sunny side. You can enjoy the sun on your priv...

I went with a good friend of mine who has been to the Basement several times ago and he told me nice things about the place. For me it was the first time. It's very cosy because it has only six bungalows around the non-heated and cold swimming pool, but I guess that later in the season the water will be warm. I was there in the first week of march.
We had bungalow number three, with a separate bedroom, a little bathroom with a little shower that does not keeps all the water inside. The living room has two big sofa's and a sling. The kitchenette is small but who wants to cook a three meal diner over there? The little terrace has a splendid view over the complex. If you want privacy, keep the curtains closed, if not you can have lots of nice contact moments with the other bungalow residents or with the day-guests who start to come in from 9.00 o'clock. But, if the wetter is bad, there will be hardly any day-guests and then it can be a bit too quiet.
Each morning you can order a full breakfast with orange juice, coffee as much if you want and enough ham and cheese but only four slices of toast. But I am sure that if you ask for more toast, the very friendly staff will bring it to you right away.
You can play were ever you want, in your bungalow, at the swimming pool or around the cruising area. And that gives a splendid feeling of complete freedom witch is very, very nice. The bungalows are cleaned every day by very friendly men and they provide you with cleans towels every day. Little tip: if you give the cleaner a tip the first time he cleans your bungalow, he will do everything for you: more towels or a paper roll to go with the sling. The bar is fully equipped to get you every drink you want to.
I had a great time at the Basement. Maybe the bungalows are not that luxurious as you might expect for € 110 a night and the porn channel was not working as it should be, even though the staff tried to fix it but the atmosphere and very friendly staff makes it all worth while. And divided by two its not that expensive after all.
I will came back with the same friend April 23 this year for another week. That says it all I guess?!

Always nice to come back to Basement Studios for a relaxing break, staff are great and always on hand to help. It is weather dependent on how much entertainment is wandering around and the location opposite the Yumbo is perfect.

Room Tip: Rooms 2,4 and 6 have no steps up to the room. Handy when coming home very late ;-)

Great place, great staff, always very helpful, lovely breakfast ever morning made to order and brought to the patio or room and a bottle of wine chilled ready and waiting on arrival. The room was clean with most things I needed and if I wanted fresh towels then I only had to ask. The only minor thing was the wifi was a bit up and down, but I hardly noticed as I spent most of the day soaking up the sun by the pool. Enjoyed my stay and look forward to visiting again.
