Just returned from Lanzarote last night and have to say these apartments are really good! I was honestly worried after reading reviews that it would be a week from hell but far from it!
The appartment was clean and spacious with everything I would expect from a decent self catering appartment.
The place was cleaned 5 out of our 7 days, everything worked as it should and definately no cockroach problems. There were a few on the balcony but not enough to complain about, same for the cats. Only saw 2 the whole time and they only came over when encouraged. In other reviews security has been mentioned often, we chose not to rent a safety deposit box and didn't have any problems. Thankfully.
Only had 2 issues with the Balcon Del Mar, neither are bad enough to put me of returning.
1- Reception is not 24hr, I have never before stayed somewhere where this is the case and would much prefer someone on hand at all times just in case. Could have done with that as we managed to lock ourselves out shortly after 7.30am and had to wait until 8.30am before we could get a spare key. Not a huge problem but still annoying on the first day of our holiday.
2- The noise. Inside the appartment with the windows closed we could hear everything! From people returning to their appartments to the toilet being used next door which is not what I want to hear first thing in the morning!
As I said, only small things that wouldn't stop returning.
For a 2* resort I thought it was very good value and certainly nothing like what I expected after reading other reviews.
