You pay for the concept, the cruising area behind the bungalow, the sling in the room, the guests visiting the area during the day and open athmosphere. If this is the only important thing for you, you will love it. Staff is friendly. The bungalows and the area are cleaned daily with care. The interior is maintained in not more...

Three of us recently stayed here for a week what a fantastic place. We felt so relaxed the whole time. Unfortunately I was a little ill for three days but the staff Ray rauel and matias made sure I had everything I needed and made me feel so much better. These guys really make the place nothing is to much...

The staff is extremely nice and helpful, and it's a fun place to stay. It would be great if the clientele were a bit younger, but the pool parties attract a wide range of people. It's centrally located in the gay area of Gran Canaria.

Tired rooms that should rate three stars. Why five stars ? Five stars are for the staff who go out of their way to look after you and keep the rooms and outside areas clean. Special mention for Ray and his sunny disposition. Returning for a week in September.

I loved this place. Rooms are big and clean but they need some little works to refresh. The staff was great and super polite. Super big breakfast when you want in the morning. The location is perfect, not far from the Yumbo Centre where you can find all shops you need. This place is perfect if you want to relax,...

I've been going to Gran Canaria for many years and hesitated going to Basement until I went last month. We were guests each day we were there. I will definitely stay at Basement and would consider going on my own. The staff were fantastic in particular Ray. Excellent value and money. Some people need to stop moaning and if you...

I didn't stay as a guest so be it for me to comment on the accommodation but what I saw and experienced as a day visitor twice during my week long holiday I was very impressed. Bar staff hit and miss, one was very friendly and welcoming, where the younger one was less friendly and quite blunt, needs more people...

Constant problems with TV in room (and this is for the third year I visit), third visit and no personal touch to repeat client - not even welcome smile, bar kitchen closes strictly at 5pm even if bar open and attendant available, cleaners were great but that was and exception. I don't think I will come again: far too expensive...

Wonderful little place. You sunbathe, you chat, you make new friends, you get wonderful friendly service from Ray and the crew. Don't listen to people on here whining about the sunbeds or the lack of organic orange juice. I say try it, I think you'll like it :)

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Basement Studios is run by gay men for gay men and has multi-ligual staff which offers a relaxed yet stimulating holiday experience. We are located in Playa del Ingles and are directly opposite the world famous Yumbo Centre – you just can’t get closer to the gay nightlife, sex bars and restaurants.We aim to be different to other gay holiday resorts. At Basement Studios you have the opportunity to be naked and have fun wherever and whenever you want. We have carefully created an environment to maximise your cruising and sexual experience. We also pride ourselves on having no-attitude here – all gay guys are welcomed regardless of age, body size, fitness and background. Our only rule is that during the day you observe the dresscode of naked, jockstrap and swimwear only (no Burmuda shorts).The Complex has been recently renovated to a high standard ... more   less
