We visit Gran Canaria 3 or 4 times a year and have stayed at the Basement on all but 2 visits. We have to say that prior to the new management taking over we were seriously looking for alternative accommodation for future visits. However, after learning new management had taken over the complex in August and radical improvements were underway we decided to book two weeks, taking in the Maspalomas Fetish Weekend. We were so surprised when we arrived at the amount of work done in just 3 months. All of the bungalows have been refurbished, including air conditioning, Apple TV's with a movie channel and Air Play which allows you to stream your own videos from your Ipad or Iphone to the TV. The new staff are brilliant, nothing is too much trouble. As soon as you climb out of your very comfortable bed and venture into the usually warm sunshine they are there offering you tea/coffee, juice and breakfast, they are equally happy to prepare your breakfast at any time of the day as you prefer. The new bar is a great area to socialise with staff, other guests and day visitors. The very hard working and dedicated cleaning staff make sure you have everything you need in your bungalow, changing your towels daily and giving you extra towels if you need them. The bungalows are cleaned daily and are spotless. The new owner Phil is always around and makes sure you have everything you need and are enjoying your holiday.
We were hoping for, and expecting some improvements but were overwhelmed at the scale of improvements and most of all the warm friendly ever attentive service from a brilliant team of very dedicated and hardworking team. Thank you guys, it was the best two weeks we have ever enjoyed in Gran Canaria and we can't wait to be back in January, staying at the Basement of course.
