I will say that it is a nice place. However, for the price of 150+ euros a night - you would hope to have a bit better customer service, someone that would ask you - how is everything going, do you need any recommendations for restaurants etc. We were pretty much left alone at the place for the first four days of our trip. No air conditioning proved interesting with the flying cockroaches that came into the room as there were no screens. They provided insect spray to deal with the incessant ants. I completely understand that cockroaches and ants are not unusual - but it was not something we had planned on. When I had read the other reviews, I had a very different impression that you would feel welcome and at home. Not really. We had a nice room. We had hot water. We had an adequate breakfast. But it was all okay. I would not stay here again. I really would have appreciated being asked "How is your stay? Is everything okay? Is there anything we can do?"

Room Tip: If you pick the room that is closest to the street - you will be kept awake by the partiers that gat...

Took a fantastic limo ride to the resort...it was fab with great air conditioning and wonderful driver. My luggage was taken to my suite (The Nightingale). Was greeted by the wonderful owners, Stefan and Tom. The accommodation was truly luxurious. Lounge with fantastic well stocked bar, boutique furniture and large TV with DVD. Bed room with extra large bed (Sleeping Pleasure!!!!), lovely furnishings and great wardrobe with comfy bathrobes. The bathroom again was fantastic with all the necessary details and more. Breakfast was orgasmic!!!! Cava, meats, cheese, pastries and wide variety of breads and hot or cold options. A true delight to start the day. The housekeeper was beautiful and I can not thank her enough for her lovely smile each morning and the trials of emptying my ash tray ;-) I have to mention the fellow guests, as they were the most relaxing and beautiful people to be amongst. The pool and jacuzzi were and added luxury which complimented the well manicured grounds. Special mention to the quiet peace of the resort...it was like Paradise. The staff including Andre and Thomas were very pleasant and attentive and I have to say that the care of the owners was 24/7. I was treated like a family guest. I look forward to returning very soon!

Room Tip: The website for The Birdcage says it all. Ask the owners for help and you will get a quick reply!

For our first visit to playa del inglés we choose this resort as it looked very nice ón their homepage. Also the only gay 4 star resort we could locate. And we have not been disapointed with our week here at the Birdcage. From the start we were picked up at the airport in a limo and taken to resort, a 20 min drive. The welcome was very friendly and we were shows to our room. We booked a garden suite with your own private terrace with table chairs and two sunbeds. Huge living room with tv, good minibar inside full size fridge, huge bedroom with fatastic bed and a great bathroom.... The rates include breakfast which is very delicious just as good as any 5 star hotel. Standard here is very high and all staff is very friendly. We can highly recomend this resort and it should be rated with 5 big stars. We will for sure return.

We choose this Botique Hotel for a week of rest and relaxation. A limo took us from the airport to the resort. Garden Suite was absolutely fabulous with huge living area and couch, LCD TV and a well stocked "mini" bar - it was a full size fridge with every drink you can imagine. The super king size bed was pure heaven and the suite leads out to your own private terrace and garden. The breakfast was one of the best I have had in a European Hotel with a special "eggs" menu along side the buffet breakfast. You can have breakfast up to 12 noon and then have more food from the lunch menu up to 6pm. Tom and Stefan have turned this place into a very relaxing and comfortable place to spend your time. Nightlife is a mere 3min walk away but yet the Hotel is very quiet at night. The only thing I would have like is to be able to have a drink at the bar after 6pm and maybe meet other people staying there but hey - the owners put so much into the day that I am sure they are exhausted when the evening comes.

We returned here again after a 2 year break and were delighted that it has maintained its high standards. Great room - nicely designed and very well serviced. Nice breakfast - although the buffet might be better protected from the sun.

Room Tip: We've always gone for the suites - nice to have your own living space

Quiet location but only a few minutes' walk from the Yumbo centre. Luxurious rooms, bathrobes, comfortable beds. Breakfast is very German with attentive service. Well kept grounds with comfortable sunloungers around the pool. Free wifi. Would we come again? Already booked.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Birdcage Resort and having an already wonderful experience last time, we wondered whether that could be surpassed and it was.

Yes, you pay more than other hotels but then again, you have to pay for quality, service, surroundings and an understanding of the gay market - the Birdcage Resort does not disappoint. This time we had the Canary suite which has its own private patio area.

There are only 7 rooms/suites in the resort thus ensuring you have privacy, quietness and the ability to relax - the resort is only a 5 minute walk from the Yumbo Centre but yet it is surprisingly peaceful owing to the fact that it is in more of a residential area just up from the Hotel Neptune.

Christophe, Thomas and the team go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible from the inclusive and wide ranging breakfast to beach towels in the room, fridge freezer's in some rooms, honesty mini bar and a room cleaning service that is neither untimely or invasive which is what other 'gay' resorts in GC are famous for.

If you want quality and somewhere that is gay then do not hesitate in booking at this resort!!!
