Sauna Paraíso

3 days ago   

I've been there on three consecutive days last week: Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It was always quite busy, with a mixed crowd, even though there were no special events. The place is very big and needs a fresh up. It has a pool but I don't think the filter was working since the water looked filthy (on the first day the water was still and you could see white foamy substances). The water from the showers was cold on all three days and the steam bath had an ugly smell. The two Finnish saunas were sometimes tepid and sometimes extremely hot. A simple thermostat would do a great job there. I loved the small cinema room but unfortunately the crowd was too shy to perform in public. All in all, the place is worth a visit. If only they would give it a good cleanup it would be a great experience. Owe, and personally I would prefer to have more light so that I can see the faces, but I guess most people are too shy for that.

Este mini bar,y mini cuarto oscuro parece pertenecer al mundo de los PePeros. Para ellos no hay crisis. El insuficiente gesto de hacer los martes un poco menos caro, lo han quitado. La poca gente que hay a cualquier hora no compensa pagar 8 euros.
Ambiente triste, gente triste, desganada, algun señor mayor desesperado con calcetines y zapatos de oficina en calzoncillos. Patético !!!

I have just been on a Tuesday at around 6 pm. Quite a lot of hot guys there, mostly under 40 and I don't know who thinks the Spanish are shy!! The place is average size, clean and pleasant enough staff. The dark atmosphere makes it more fun.I think some of those over the top bad reviews are written by the competition lol I recommend it!

The Cage

Went to the Cage twice Sat and Sun... Looks a bit run down from outside... But once in, very hot... Older guys but all want to play. Friendly and lots of action. About 12 guys. Mostly 40+ and big bears. Condoms but no lube. You pay for a drink or more with entrance fee. Then get naked with boots is best. Good value. Horny for a couple of hours from 10..
