We stayed there 4 people for 7 days in april 2018.
To be honest there's nothing good to say about it. When we arrived, nobody was expecting us, we went to the reception, where was a young guy who don't know anything, saying i am not working here, i just replace for while. Finally he give us a keys and we left to the house.
When we came in to the house everything looks ok. Rooms is a normal size, kitchen and bathroom too. We start unpacking our luggage, and i find out that there is no bath towels. I went to reception with question, where it is? Answer was, you have to rent them out to get towels, i was shocked but ok, i need them.
when we went to the pool, there again you have to rent out towels.In pool area it's really strange, not clean, dark and nothing works, for example bubble spa, in a pool there is 2 more bubble spa, but not working. When i ask a staff to please switch it on they say its broken.
There is 2 bathrooms, BUT you can't wash yourself there, is water pressure is 0, in en-suite bathroom sink is 2 taps 1 for cold 1 for hot, sorry is 21 century how i can wash my face?
When you want to spend nice time there, that's WRONG place to go. There is nothing to see outside your house, its just a field. Nothing like everywhere else in Europe.
You will be lucky to get a free space in a pool, as they make a money and teach local citizens to swim. And you don't have space to relax or play a ball.
For 7 days NOBODY came and clean the house, NOBODY change the bedding. We stayed in many hotels and spa, there always change bedding and clean the rooms.
This place is only when you travel and wanna stay for 1 night, yes ok that's good.
Bed quality was terrible with very old mattress. Every morning wake up broken all bones in pain.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND this place to stay, it's not for humans. Of course they will make a big excuses, but people just check out may pictures and read another people reviews who stayed there for longer time.

Room tip: I don't think that any of these houses is good.

We cannot recommend Banna beach resort and their staff highly enough.
The houses, pool, playground, kids entertainment, etc. was excellent.
The children want to return.
You need to book early as it gets booked up quickly!

Just back from our third visit to Banna Beach resort and once again had a brilliant time. Stayed in 91 and the accommodation was spotless. We spent hours every day in the swimming pool, the kids loved it. We went along for the entertainment every evening and in particular loved the bingo and the family quiz. The dance floor was full every night. The highlight of the week for the kids was the pancakes!! Unfortunately we weren't that lucky with the weather but we still made the most of it. The kids learned how to surf on Banna beach. You can rent a surfboard and wetsuit for only €5! A bargain! I would highly recommend Banna beach resort for families and we are looking forward to going back again next year!

I booked a week's stay in June and was very lucky with the weather which does help in Banna. The allocated house was fine, basic and definitely showing signs of age. To be fair it was spacious and clean and well equipped. It looked grand on arrival but once you settle in and get to see things, yes these houses are showing their age now and lacking on the cleaning side.

We definitely enjoyed our stay, the grounds were kept nice, its very spacious between the houses and there is something on in the evenings for the kiddies, and it was always busy.

Back to the house. The kitchen was well equipped and we really had everything we needed. I think the biggest issue here is the cleaning. The bedlinen was clean and fresh but the valance sheet in all of the bedrooms had not been changed for weeks. The lampshades could do with a good dusting. The shower could have done with a good clean, not just the glass, small things but they add up to bigger things. The leather couches had zips broken so you could not keep the cushions on.

Reception were friendly and always willing to help. Bar staff friendly but always busy.

The leisure centre - again this needs attention. - again a cleaning issue. Perhaps they are under pressure on their turn arounds but someone needs to take charge of the cleaning side of things.

We had a great holiday, the kids loved the place, and yes we will be back but I would hope there will be some improvement next time. You have an ideal location and its definitely one of my better holiday stays.

Just back from a not so relaxing week in Banna. The weather was good, the beach was great, the kids did a surf camp with Kingdom Surf School and really enjoyed that but the resort (which is a very loose use of the word) was awful. The house we stayed in was clean enough but not comfortable in anyway. The Emerson didn't work, the couches and beds had seen better days and we only had 1 plate and 3 bowls that were not chipped! We has a cot and a high chair in our house that we didn't need nor had we asked for and with 6 of us in the house space was premium! I asked for them to be taken away but that never happened. The staff were not friendly or welcoming at all and there seemed to be some antisocial behaviour at night time as well which was unsettling when you have small kids! The place needs a serious revamp. The leisure centre change rooms were dirty and smelly so stopped going there after 2 trips. Won't be going back again and would not recommend it to anyone else.
