we stayed at this wonderful hotel in feb 2015 . we were welcomed by the beautiful hall with grand interior decorations . Nice staff everywhere , all you can ever want breakfast buffet. clean rooms , lovely balcony, great pool area where there always is a free sun bed and not crowded . pools are spacious, a bit cold in february , but nice for a quick dip. we used the tennis court that are placed in the corner and therefor a little less windy . indoor poll were available but we didnt get around to use it The Hotel is nicely situated by the lido and theres a 15 -20 min walk to the city " center" with the many restaurants . Ive already recommended this hotel to many of our friends , and ill be glad to recommend it there on tripadviserMore

Support when required
Unfortunately my husband tripped just outside the hotel on our first morning in Playa Blanca and sustained serious injuries to his elbows and face. Sadly our holiday really ended then as he was hospitalised and subsequently sent home to England as the injuries sustained were beyond the capability of the hospital. Not surprising really, as this involved the replacement of a replacement elbow! I would like to say how helpful the staff at H10 Timanfaya Palace were at this crucial time. I wish also to state on record that our Thomson Representative,Jordan Kness, was extremely helpful in guiding me through the procedure of dealing with the insurance company and supporting me in every way whilst I remained alone at the hotel. I cannot speak highly enough of the help shown to me, for which I was so grateful. Once my husband returns to full health, I sincerely hope we will be able to return to the hotel and have the sort of holiday we were due in February.More

A good place to unwind.
We do not usually return to a hotel but we went back to the Timanfaya Palace this March 2015, as we enjoyed it so much last year and did not feel we could do any better for the price. We were instantly recognised by the hotel staff and entertainment team, and the waiters, which impressed us. The sea view room we had was excellent. The choice of food in the self service (main) restaurant was just as good and we were again spoilt for choice. We were given the usual meeting from the Thomson team upon arrival, but did not do any trips as we did some last year. The outdoor pools are very cold, not heated, and you needed to be very couragous to swim there, but there is also a covered, outdoor pool, which is kept at about 28C which is lovely. The entertainment team gave demonstratios by the pool bar daily at 1pm which included making: Mojitos, sangria, sushi, Canarian dips, guacamole, pizza, Tequila Sunrises. All very tasty!! Every morning there is a glass of local "champagne" to have with breakfast, and in the evening there is a tot of a local liqueur to try. I was unfortunate to feel ill one day, with what turned out to be Vertigo. The entertainment team and the hotel staff looked after me exceedingly well and were most concerned that I was OK. Their attention was good and much appreciated. Between the hotel and the sea is a wide promenade that runs for miles along the coastline. It has no steps and is ideal for a nice stroll along to the shops, ferry port and harbour. (Bit chilly at night in March) The evening entertainment was good and varied, with an excellent resident duo, The Millsy Brothers. We intend to go back to the Timanfaya again next March, and can highly recommend it. I would suggest that you go for an upgraded room, with a sea view, on floors 4 or 5 if possible. No children, and we did not hear any mobile phones ringing. Richard and Kathy J.More

Great Value ... Great Location ... Great Choice !
We stayed at the H10 Timanfaya Palace in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote for two weeks in early March 2015. We booked through Thomsons in the UK and we chose to upgrade our accommodation to include a Superior Room with the H10 Privilege Service and we also paid extra for the All Inclusive option. Our package included the costs of the room safe, privilege pool towels and the mini fridge in the room, free wifi, and coffee and tea making facilities. We also had access to the Privilege lounge, access to the Privilege sun bed area on the grassed area in front of the indoor pool, and we had access to the Kasbah Restaurant for our breakfasts and dinner. The Privilege rooms are situated on the 2nd and 3 rd floor of the hotel with views across the pool to the sea. Worthy of note is that Privilege "Check-In" is only good when you are first in the queue! Otherwise it is a little frustrating because it takes a while to have everything explained. Our suggestion is to grab a glass of Cava and join the queue or check in at the main reception desk which is much quicker. We think that the full package was great value for money and it meant that all our meals, whether we ate in the main buffet, the A La Carte restaurant or the poolside restaurant, it enabled us to happily select any food choice without any extra cost. Drinks were also included in the package, some excellent house wines and branded spirits but if you wanted to order from the wine list, this was at an extra charge. We have stayed in Playa Blanca many times, but this was our first stay at the Timanfaya Palace, and we chose this hotel because it is one of the Thomsons Couples range of hotels and we also knew that the location was superb. We have also stayed at the other H10 hotels in Playa Blanca over the years, and whilst each hotel has a character of its own, the Timanfaya Palace is the only one which is Adults Only. We highly recommend this hotel, it was fully booked during our stay, and couples from all age groups were staying here. We were also very lucky, the weather was simply fantastic with lots of sunshine, so that always makes for a positive report. The hotel is friendly, well run, recently renovated and the staff were great. There are no hotels in the world that are perfect and us Brits ... will look for the faults. But, this is NOT an expensive holiday destination in March and so you really have to balance the costs with your own expectations. Yes, other residents can be noisy, yes suitcases when rolled over tiles are very noisy and yes we always get the rooms where the guests in the room above us, insist upon rearranging their bedroom furniture when they go to bed late, and when they get up at the crack of dawn!! Who are these people????? There is an excellent covered pool which has a temperature around 29 degrees, it is located close to the gaming area and the excellent Club House, which is run by the wonderful Marlins. If you have Privilege Service, Marlins will be on hand to keep you hydrated with some excellent fruit juices and fresh fruit kebabs! There is a dedicated sunbed area for Privilege guests on the grass area by the indoor pool, and we generally found sunbeds here without problem, but some people were not capable of reading the "Privilege Area" signs and they happily snapped up these beds denying those who had paid the extra money from using them. Just a note for Management ! There is a great mini golf course, lots of fun, small deposit required at reception for that, some excellent animation activities and keep fit. We didn't check out the nudist area, on the roof of the hotel ... too frightened of bumping into someone we might have known!! Entertainment was good with a balance between in house music and quiz combined with a range of excellent professional acts. For those, keen to just chill, relax and chat, the Piano Bar provided the perfect alternative. Thomson trip advisors; Katie and Jordan worked very hard to make sure that their guests were looked after, and they were easily contactable and visible in and around the hotel. Caz the event co-ordinator was also excellent, witty and friendly, and possessed the most superb singing voice .... For the sun worshippers there is good reason to get a lie in each day because the hotel has a policy that you cannot reserve any sunbeds until 09:30. Taxis can be booked at reception and it is a quick ticketing system. Taxis into Playa Blanca and the Marina cost around 4 to 5 euros. The promenade walk from the hotel to the Port in Playa Blanca takes about 15 minutes. So, all in all this report is a recommendation to book this hotel, but we would suggest considering the upgrades available at the time of booking if you really want to get the best out of the amenities and the holiday itself ...More
