First impression of the bungalows was a very good one, they're in a good location, it's quiet, near a beach, near facilities and the grounds and pool are very nice. Then we entered the actual bungalow and that's when we became disappointed. We’d read all the reviews and were really looking forward to our stay but when we saw the state of the blinds, the rotting woodwork and the general weariness of the rooms, our mood changed. The bed coverings were disgusting, torn pillow cases and thin worn out duvets. The towels were ancient and during the whole week, were only changed once. We did ask to be moved as soon as reception was open but were told there were no other available rooms and most were in the same state of disrepair. Then the toilet started to play up and we couldn't flush, admittedly when reported the maintenance man was round immediately, although it was 24 hours before it was resolved. 24 hours of having to open up the top of the cistern and move the ball cock so we could flush was not our idea of a holiday pastime. We asked to move again and were told this wasn't possible.
It just seemed such a shame when these apartments could be gorgeous if some money was spent on them. The wooden frame around the window in the bathroom was so rotten that it made me want to retch every time I stood in the shower beside it......how can the management company expect people to accept this?
We did enjoy our holiday in Lanzarote but tried to spend as much time as possible away from the apartment. We won't be going back to Banadama Bungalows......unless they carry out a complete refurbishment and at least change the blinds!
