5 star rating for this 4 star hotel
This 4 star hotel deserves in my opinion 5 trip advisor stars. However, it is not a 5 star hotel that you might be expecting from some previous reviews. We were all inclusive and took the privilege option. We were pleased with the fact that privilege meant we could use the a la carte restaurant any time we liked & had no trouble booking reservations which we did on a block. Privilege breakfast was great (real orange juice!) however privilege breakfast service started a bit late for us at 8.30 am so we only used once. Orange juice in the buffet was very disappointing like cordial. Food and drink quality was generally however verygood Hotel is in need of a touch up. Main pool which had a plastic/rubber type lining needs replacing as very tatty in places. Yes it was chilly in the pool but by no means too cold to go in In our opinion there were just too many people in the hotel which made it crowded especially at meal times so buffet was never really a relaxing meal. We are in our 50s but for the 2 weeks we were there, there were lots of younger people Entertainment is not generally our thing but it was on the whole ok. Could do with a wider variety of acts in the piano bar. We liked Andy. In the disco bar tribute to the legends was absolutely terrible and should be scrapped. We Enjoyed downtown and abba. Staff on the whole really friendly and helpful On the whole we had a great time and would go back Wi fi for us worked okMore
second visit to this lovely hotel it has a very high standard of food the bar staff Sidi and chris are brilliant nothing too much trouble and always a friendly greeting in fact all the staff were friendly and polite would highly recommend visiting Timanfaya palaceMore
TheCommonMonkland, the common
Wow! Lovely adult-only hotel right on the promenade... Approx 10/15 minute walk to resort centre. .. Beach just a 2 minute walk away. Rooms are exactly as advertised .. Ours had sea view, overlooking the waterfall. Every member of staff we met was really friendly and couldn't do enough for you. Rooms cleaned & Bedding/towels changed every day. Good choice of food .. Hotel even offered to arrange a meeting with my veggie husband if he wasn't happy with meals on offer .. No need at all. Some days we struggled to find sunbeds by pool as they seemed to be snapped up by 8am. Entertainment in piano bar was more suited to older patrons but we enjoyed sitting out on the roof terrace. Pool Bar was open a few times for evening entertainment. We stayed here September 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed a duo called "The Secret" .. Don't know if they are still there but absolutely brilliant. Overall fantastic holiday, fabulous hotel & resort ... Definitely one to return to.More
Another great holiday at the Timanfaya Palace
My Wife and I have stayed very regularly at the Timanfaya Palace from when it first opened and have been regular visitors to Playa Blanca for over 22 years. I have also written many very positive reviews after our visits to the hotel which have been read by thousands and can be seen elsewhere on this site. As I thought it had all been said before on this occasion I messaged the Guest Relations Manager at the Hotel to say what a great 2 week break we had had and thanked her and all the staff for making our stay from 28 May - 11 June again very enjoyable making particular reference on this occasion to the very high standard of the restaurant. Having now seen a review today which paints a very different picture of the hotel I have decided to add a few comments about how we see the hotel as I must wonder if the writer stayed somewhere else. Firstly I must repeat, what I said to the Guest Relation Manager, the Restaurant continues to offer a wide variety of choice and high quality of food with good service in a pleasant relaxing ambiance. My comments coming in the context of the fact we do not eat red meat so our choice will always be a little limited. All the staff in the hotel from management to reception restaurant bars and room cleaning are always very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. For a writer to say that Jose the Manager is rarely visible is a very surprising statement. Most mornings he is in the restaurant for breakfast and is regularly about the hotel including the pool and indoor pool area along with other key members of management staff to I assume get a feel of how the hotel is running and talking to guests and staff. To state the clientele are elderly and frail is also an amazing statement for a guest to make having been there at about the same time as ourselves. As a couple in our early 60's going on 40 we often in our stays over the winter months see many retired couples many much older than ourselves but I do not understand why this is an issue. We both run most days as by the way age is only a number! The fact the Hotel is able to provide quality adapted facilities and an environment for disabled guests to have an enjoyable holiday must surely again be commended not criticized. During the time we were at the hotel there was a broad range of couples many much younger than ourselves and a number of pregnant ladies which speaks for itself. I have myself commented on the standard of the WI FI in the past but must say this time in our 5th floor I had a full signal to drive the internet, email and Spotify throughout our stay. The Timanfaya Palace in our opinion continues to be very pleasant relaxing hotel with a variety of pool areas in a great quiet location but in easy walking distance of the beach seafront paths and town. Even though the weather wasn't at its best during our most recent stay our two week break went by very quickly which we feel is always a test of a very enjoyable holiday. We will return many times in the future.More
People come and go but the hotel stays the same
Just returned from an 11 day stay which for us was later than normal (normally April / May) and we noticed that the hotel was very busy to the point of being full. A very big thank you to Lydia on reception and Sandra in the restaurant and was lovely to see some familiar faces around mixed in with some new ones. As we come three times a year (for the last four years) we noticed on this occasion that the 'showcase cooking' was no more and instead of having pasta with a choice of sauce prepared in front of you it was already placed in bowls to help yourself. Other noticeable changes was with the chicken - no choice only legs / salad looked a bit wilted at times / ribs on Mexican night instead of Chinese ? Hope the standards don't drop due to cost saving ? Overall a very enjoyable stay.More
