Sauna Paraíso

Young crowd, quite a big sauna (according to Spanish standards), medium size to European ones. Crowd not willing to play, there is a lot of posing, and most of the action takes place in private cabins. But it's still the best sauna in town, no matter what they say! It is still a bit cold in some areas

this time I found it to be a bit bigger, let's say that it's bigger than it looks in my older review below. Not a single feminine guy in the bar, and quite a hot crowd last week. Centraly located, worth the visit for a drink and some hot sex

small, is getting smaller as time goes by, as there are new clubs in town that are bigger. Club for sex in public with a small crowd that only want sex in the small darkroom. Never have seen more that 10 guys there. The sling is super comfortable, though

nice sauna, clean and with some hot play spaces. I would say it has a medium size. Lots of bears, but some admirers too. Crowd is willing to play in public, very sexually charged

Sauna Center

This sauna isbasically a big bar + dry sauna + wet sauna + showers in the ground floor, and a huge layout of private cabins in the underground floor. Just private cabins and more private cabins. I went on a Sunday morning around 11am and it must have had around 30 guys, pretty busy for such a quiet time of the day. The place is clean, but it's such an old place that it gives you the sensation that it's dirty. Nice staff
