As regular visitors to this complex , we were clearly concerned last year when the complex changed hands and changes were made to the staff .It would have been a great shame if Basement Studios had lost any of its niche appeal ..
Therefore when we arrived on Christmas Eve for our annual migration (we always try and fly south for the winter to avoid christmas - yuk) it was with some trepidation .
Well the good news is we need not have worried in fact in many way Basement Studios is certainly a "new improved" version of its own self .
The staff we friendly and attentive , breakfast first rate , accomodation has been refurbished with new furniture , air conditioning (thank god ! ) , the whole place just felt a little spruced up , whilst still retaining its "atmosphere" and unique features
Then we saw the new bar area .. what a difference ! Clearly some money is being spent here and you can see it , bright , clean , spacious , friendly , well stocked .
Basement still has a good mix of visitors , both residents and day guests , it felt like business as usual in every way .
The new management seem passionate about their new venture , I guess during the transistion it must have been difficult for them as people are always resistant to change , but don't worry guys , keep doing what you're clearly focuced on and providing a good holiday experience and you'll do fine
ME ? I'm going back for Gran Canaria in pride , like we do every year with no hesitation
