Basement Studios Gran Canaria
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 December 2013 via mobile

Have heard a lot about Basement Studios and after a recent renovation it's even better than the reports. Attended as a day visitor and had a great Sunday, they even supplied a free BBQ which happens every Sunday. The staff were friendly and attentive which along with the busy pool makes for a great day. Was shown around the newly refurbished bungalows which look fantastic, will definitely be booking up for my next holiday.

Fantastic studios, just renovated ! Beautifully done, great atmosphere, great staff !! Couldn't fault it !! Opening weekend after the redecorating and upgrades and it was spot on ! Great accommodation right by the yumbo , but everything we need was inside the complex !

We have heard so much about this complex, and mostly good reports, so we thought it was time to try it out. And from the moment we arrived the staff couldn't have been more helpful, the rooms were spacious and clean, so you could imagine our surprise when we were told it was closing the first week in December, until we were told it was to complete the total refurb of this amazing complex.
We can't wait to see just how the they can make it even better. It's a sub trap with pool, good food, and lots of fun inside and out, especially as it's usually full of cruising day guest. We will see you soon.
Thanks for the best holiday we have had in years.

I was here in October.
Staff great, and an all male environment to boot, where you can let your hair down, in the old fashioned and modern sense.
BBQ Wednesday with everyone here is something to tick off your bucket list.
A great place to chillax, and enjoy.
Really enjoyed not having to endure the sand on the beach finding places it shouldn't.
Everyone is there for a good time.

I must admit when I read the reviews from 2 years ago I was dubious, but obviously since then a lot has been done. It's a shame the photos posted on here don't actually show what care to attention is given to this place. Staff are friendly and all in all your treated as one of the basement family by staff and other customers. No-one judges you no matter what age, shape or size you are. Loved it!!! Will be back I think for my Christmas break this year.

I tend to frequent basement as a day/week guest each time I visit, I like to chill by the pool, this trip was as good if not better than ever, the guys at the bar make you feel welcome, they are friendly and they make an effort to remember your name, the place is spotlessly clean including the pool. Love the place! See you again soon.

Another visit over, this time just for 4 nights. The staff here have not rested on their laurels and continue to work very hard to ensure that everyone that stays here has a great relaxing time.

During my stay there were many pool parties and the place was popular with day visitors of all ages; good to meet up again with so many old friends who like me, come back to stay time after time.

This place ROCKS :@)

As Arnie would say, "I'll be back !"
