Adults only - a joy

What a pleasure to stay at an adult only hotel, particularly after the depressing experience of a Thomson flight where parents and airline staff thought it was acceptable for children to use the aisle as a running track and the toilets as a source of entertainment. Thank goodness for noise cancelling earphones. The hotel reception is immediately welcoming. We had room 506 which was on the top floor and had uninterrupted views to the lighthouse and the sunset. It was large with a private balcony. We do not normally stay in such big hotels but the only time we were really aware of the number of people there was at dinner when the restaurant could be very busy. We were on all-inclusive and the selection of food at all meals was good, with one exception. Despite there being a wide choice of salad and vegetables there were very few dedicated vegetarian main courses. Poor labelling made it difficult to decide if some dishes were meat and fish free. Some things were rendered unavailable by the method of cooking - there was lovely asparagus that was cooked alongside the fish on the grill. We found the service in the main restaurant inconsistent. Some of the waitresses were very good (the waiters less so). On other occasions the staff seemed more intent on having a chat between themselves than serving drinks or clearing the tables. That said, Jesus, who works in the pool bar and the piano bar was excellent and very attentive. I must also mention the ever-smiling Lucia who worked on the grill at lunch time. We had dinner one night in the Kasbah and were very disappointed. Scallops for a starter comprised two very small scallops which were overcooked, and cost around 12 euros. There were no vegetarian main courses. I agree with the previous reviewer about Mike's - it is poorly located. It was the only place to get decent coffee but not somewhere to sit and relax, unless you wanted to watch the football on the screens opposite. Many of the other positives of the hotel have been said before: the piano bar, the quality of the drinks, the pool area etc. Overall we had a lovely relaxing holiday and would recommend the hotel. Our three suggestions for improvement: 1. Provide better vegetarian options 2. Turn the music down in the restaurant if you must play any at all 3. Change the CD in the piano bar - we heard the same one every night.More

Total relaxation

Just returned from 2 weeks holiday at Timanfaya Palace. We booked via Thomson and had the all inclusive + Privilege package ( I am a H10 club member in any case) ...... this meant that literally everything was all in .....including the huge and wonderful cakes in 'Mikes Coffee Shop' Our room had 2 double beds .....very comfy......Nespresso coffee machine ,and pods, flat screen TV etc. The view from our balcony was across to Fueteventura ......beautiful. The staff that we met were probably the friendliest that we've met on our travels .... and good at their jobs as well. We chose to eat breakfast in the Kasbah ......very calm .....and away from the feeding frenzy in the main restaurant .....excellent. We eat our lunch in either the pool bar or occasionally just had coffee and cake at Mikes. Dinner we eat in the main restaurant ..... always lots of choice ,hot and well presented. Most evenings were themed to add some different flavours. ( my only minor criticism is the choice of back ground music on these evenings ....I couldn't quite get the link between John Coltrane and the Indian theme .....maybe a re-think needed) When we travelled I had just retired and halfway through it was my wife's 70th...... the kind notes bottles of wine,birthday cake and serenade from the waiting staff were much appreciated. Outside the property is also well maintained .....lovely pools ....never a shortage of loungers ......the indoor pool and privilege deck are superb .....now even better with the opening of the club house. To sum up ..... A wonderful place to stay .....we hope to return.More

Very Relaxing Experience

My wife and I have just returned from a lovely weeks stay at The Timanfaya Palace. I was tempted to give the hotel 4/5 stars as I only had one gripe, which was despite all the positives I will list, we found eating in the dining room to be quite loud and noisy, especially when at it's busiest. The more I thought about it, the more I felt that we knew it was a large hotel when booking and we tend to go for smaller venues therefore cannot penalise a hotel just for the number of people present. We flew from Bournemouth, which was so much less stressfull than Gatwick. On arrival check in was fast, friendly, efficient and very informative. We did pay a bit extra for a sea view room and were very happy with the one allocated to us. I would say if you are not that fussed about a sea view then see what you get given. It appeared most rooms did face the sea in some way. You may get lucky?. The room had a very large bathroom with everything you would want including a nice powerfull shower. Everyday we had clean towels and the rooms were cleaned to a very high standard. The balcony felt very private and the view was lovely (Room 275). Next time I would go for a 3rd level floor or above. Breakfast was simply an amazing choice of just about every item you could think of. The queue for the omeletts or pancakes was no problem whastoever and the polite waitresses and waiters cleared the tables with great timing and seemed happy doing their work. We were half board and chose to always have dinner however you could swap and have lunch if you wanted to go out into Playa Blanca to eat of an evening. The evening buffett was just like breakfast with so much choice and the standard of just about everything was very high. We never went to the disco bar so cannot comment however the piano bar was very relaxing and had lovely post dinner live music such as piano or sax. The piano bar is popular and you may end up sitting on some interesting seating if you arrive late?. Prices within the hotel seemed very competative. My only other slight gripe was Mike's coffee bar, which is an absolutely great idea but in my opinion needs to be located by the pool as most people I feel would not want to sit in a dark coffee bar and miss out on the lovely weather. As already mentioned you don't have to get up early to get a sun bed and the pool did not feel any colder than normal to me. The indoor pool is also a nice different option. We did not hire a car so just walked from the lighthouse in one direction to Rubicon Marina and even Papagayo beach in the other. The latter walk is quite a long way however worth the trek for a stunning sandy beach. Be warned that no sun loungers but perhaps that is what makes it feel so pleasent. We also took the small boat (80) people max I think to Correlejo in Fuertaventura and despite a lovely boat ride, we felt that Playa Blanca was nicer and had a more relaxed feel. Check which boat or company you use as Fred Olson and another company are very expensive???. Regarding the hotel again, I agree that most of the clientel are of a mature age perhaps 70% above the age of 40, only a guess but I am just 50 and with no children it created a very relaxing environment. If I was a twenty year old again I would still enjoy this hotel, not sure about 18, 19 year olds in search of clubs?. In summery both myself and my wife agreed we would definately return again for a week late in summer if the price was good. The hotel and the promenade at Player Blanca are also very suitable for people in wheelchairs and walking problems as plenty of benches to stop and rest and admire the view.More

JUST GETS BETTER AND BETTER

We have stayed at the Timanyafa 20 times in the past 15 years. We first came when our daughter was 3 years old for just a week in March; it was so perfect, why go anywhere else? so we just didin't! We visited again most recently, last week in Oct first in Nov for 11 days. Our daughter is now at Uni so it was our first time without her and experiencing the improvements. How could you improve on perfection? Well have no idea how they managed it, but they did! Fantastic, room upgrades, bar area, indoor pool, new menu in the pool bar, gorgeous food in the main restaurant, service, evenything. Can't wait to come back 2015 with our 19 year old daughter, who was pretty upset that we went without her! Thank you so much to all the staff who work so hard to make this just the perfect hoilday retreat for their customers, with first class service, food and all the rest. WELL DONE AND SEE YOU 2015! One tip for newbys - if you put your towels on a sunbed, then go away, the pool attendant removes them and your belongings and stores them in the Pool house by the steps up to the indoor pool. If you want a particular bed or be in a particular area, you will have to stay put until after 9.30, if you don't want your belongings to be taken away. EXCELLENT SYSTEM I HAVE TO SAY to the hotel staff, stops folk hogging beds from 7.00am then not using them, which is very annoying as you will agree.More

Lovely relaxing stay.....just a few niggles

Firstly I have to say that we really, really enjoyed our stay here. The staff were brilliant and seemed very happy in their jobs which makes a difference. Hector the Entertainments manager was brilliant and seemingly very good at his job. The hotel lobby is very grand and welcoming and the décor was just stunning, the evening entertainment was just right and the addition of the piano lounge is a great idea for those not wanting to join in the entertainment. The rooms were very comfortable and modern and the food was fantastic!! We will definitely return again, however there were just a few small things (and I do mean really minor) for us which stopped us from putting 5*'s and would turn it from a great hotel into a fantastic one.....firstly in all the corridors leading to the rooms they have placed what I can only think are sofas from before the refurb which are all dirty and threadbare......do they really need to be there, this spoils the feel that they have worked so hard to achieve? With the rest of the hotel being soooooo nice with modern furniture these really stood out and to be honest looked odd. The same has to be said for the toilets although clean the old marble is stained and my husband tells me the men's were just as bad with the marble being stained by men missing the toilets....there is also paint flaking off the doors in the toilets.....it is these minor things which if addressed would make it just perfect and more of a 4*+ hotel. I hope these comments are taken as constructive as it really, really is a fantastic hotel that I would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing stay in beautiful surroundings with first class staff. Looking forward to our next stay.More
