Avoid Level 0 room
We looked forward to our 10 days in sun during winter. We visit the Canaries regularly, our second time in Lanzarote Playa Blanca but first time in this hotel. Having arrived at the hotel, looking forward to our break, it was HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT when we walked into our (standard) room for the first time. It's described as 'garden view' but felt like a basement room. Standing in the balcony, eye level is at the base of tree trunk on the earth embankment in front of the balcony. A great way to start a holiday! We asked for a different room but were told this wasn't possible till two days later. We didn't want to be unpacking and packing (and uncertain about any deficiencies in the new room) so elected to remain in this room. We think someone else rejected this room before us: the soap bar in the bathroom had been removed from its packaging and the patio door was unlocked. Some other reviewers in TripAdvisor comment on the Level 0 rooms. The room wasn't without good features: it was spacious with comfortable beds. It had a Wifi signal - not all rooms have this and we thought this an advantage. The hotel is large and was busy whilst we were there. Like all places it has pros and cons. Pros - well situated on the seafront promenade, in a quiet area but only 10 minute walk to harbour and high density shops; free Wifi in hotel; kettle and tea bags/coffee in rooms (though we once had to ask for this to be refilled); buffet restaurant with wide choice of food including some freshly cooked foods (while you wait); staff polite, attentive and hard working; good range of daytime activities; food and drink (including wine) prices reasonable throughout hotel; Cons - the basement rooms on level 0; sound proofing between rooms poor - for first two nights person next door had a terrible cough including long spasms middle of the night, and also we could clearly hear conversations in rooms next door; charging for use of safe deposit box these days seems out of date; some of the 'hot' food in buffet restaurant at best luke warm; at breakfast variably long queue for freshly cooked eggs and bacon; The special restaurant (Kasbah) presented food very well but taste-wise we felt nothing special; Overall a mixed experience. This would not be our hotel of choice for the future.More

The Timanfaya Palace in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote (not to be confused with Playa Blanca in Puerto del Carmen), is one of three H10 hotels in the resort, the others being the Rubicon Palace and the Lanzarote Princess. The Timanfaya Palace is located about 15 minutes walk from the town centre and Ferry Terminal which services the ships to the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura and close to the small family beach of âPlaya Flamingoâ. The Timanfaya Palace is a large âadults onlyâ hotel over six floors and our room was 250 metres away from the central atrium and Restaurants, making a round trip of 1 kilometre every day or 4Â½ miles for the week for our food (we were only half board)! The hotel faces south towards Fuerteventura and has a well used public coastal footpath between the hotel and the sea shore. Most rooms overlook the huge central area comprising the swimming pools and cafe, but some rooms directly overlook the sea. There are two large swimming pools at the hotel, both of which are unheated and very cold. Guests are fortunate in that there is an indoor pool located in the grounds, with some guests using this facility. We booked the holiday through Sovereign Holidays, although packages are also offered by TUI. We were fortunate in booking a âPrivilege Superiorâ room, which gave us access to all restricted services within the hotel, including a âfreeâ unlimited bar (spirits, liqueurs, beer, wine, water and soft drinks) in the âPrivilegeâ lounge. Free Internet is provided in the hotel, but only in certain areas around the central core of the building. The large bedrooms have a refrigerator, a safe, an espresso coffee machine and small coffee cups as well as two standard double beds. There is no kettle or large cups/ mugs provided, so if you like a morning cuppa, take everything with you. The rooms have two sorts of electrical sockets; the normal EU style earthed socket (type F) but also the older two pin socket (type C) that most UK adapters donât fit. You might have to hunt to find a socket that your adapter fits. The food is provided in one main buffet style restaurant called âLa Bocainaâ on the second floor and the selection and quality of food is wonderful and probably the best of any similar hotel in Europe. Every night, there is a themed menu based on a country, i.e. Mexican, Chinese, Italian etc., with a free glass of the themed countries liquor on offer as you enter. There is a small âa la carteâ restaurant called âKasbahâ on the first floor, with waiter service. Unless the cost of this meal is included in your basic price, it is very expensive and the portions are small. The huge central atrium on the fourth floor houses the main entrance, the reception desks, a small franchised souvenir and newsagents shop and a desk run by ââAutos Cabreraâ car hire agency. We hired an old Chevrolet from these at a cost of â¬70 for two days (63,000 km on the clock), although there are numerous car hire agencies in Playa Blanca who offer cheaper deals. The hotel is ideally situated for those who like walking. There is a 7 kilometre/ 4Â½ miles round trip to the top of the Montaïa Roja volcano (196 metres/ 643â) and an 8 kilometre/ 5 mile return walk to the âFaro de Pechigueraâ lighthouse along the coastal path. The Papagayo beaches are about 6Â½ kilometres/ 4 miles to the east of the hotel. The hotel is only a short drive from the scenic areas of Los Hervideros, El Golfo and the Timanfaya National Park. If we visit Lanzarote in the future, we will certainly use the H10 Timanfaya Palace hotel in Playa Blanca again.More

We are 10 days into a 2 week holiday at the Timanfaya Palace & are very pleased with our choice. The hotel & staff are fantastic, with a special mention for Sandra in the restaurant & Brian in the disco bar. Great choice of food too. Definitely recommend, particularly to older couplesMore

Our first visit to the Timanfya palace 5th-15th January definitely won't be our last. Gorgeous hotel, superb position, great staff! Our room 153 was lovely overlooking the sea we had the pleasure of watching whales or dolphins swim past most days. The pool area is very well kept with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas, unfortunately it was a little chilly for sunbathing although some hardier souls were giving it a go. I'm not a foodie but there was plenty of choice including show cooking in a nicely furnished very clean restaurant. Entertainment was good especially Lunar Fall young guitar duo. enjoyed Abba tribute and The Divas. Also good varied entertainment in the smart piano bar. the bar staff were all very friendly and attentive. Didn't go on any trips as we prefer to hire a car. We had a lovely holiday was sad to leave, cant wait to go back hopefully later in the year. Thank you everyone at the Timanfya Palace. More
H10 Timanfaya Palace
Perfectly placed hotel on the promenade leading to the town of Playa Blanca. We stayed for two weeks in January and unfortunately the weather was cold and windy. The hotel is very much open plan from Ground to 4th Floor with many open corridors leading to the rooms so the reception areas and corridors were always quite cold. The food was plentiful, full of variety and restaurant service was very good. The bar and club house staff were very friendly and provided excellent service. We asked to change rooms because we were placed above a low roof where the extraction from the kitchen gave unpleasant smells but unhelpfully we were asked to wait several days and spend the main part of one day with our cases packed in reception while both rooms were cleaned so we decided to stay where we were. Wi-fi was available in the reception area. The indoor swimming pool was a very good facility but could have done with adjacent changing rooms rather than having to run back to the hotel bedroom if the weather was bad. TV was provided in the room but the only English speaking channels were BBC World Service and Sky News. The resident band were two rock guitarists who played everything at 100 decibels or more - evidenced by members of the audience with earplugs or hands covering their ears - not suitable for a couples hotel with residents in the 40-70 age groups - a pity because the hired entertainment was generally good.More
