Fantastic hotel for a very relaxing break
This was a fantastic holiday, and a great hotel which gave us exactly what we needed - a very relaxing and stress free holiday in the sun. We would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a proper break and would definitely return Positives: Indoor pool - we had some great weather (around 25 degrees) but this was still too cold for the outdoor pool (trust me I tried!). The indoor pool was heated and meant we could swim every day. The glass windows and roof top location meant you still felt the warm weather even in the pool. Food - Great range of options in the buffet, less choice than we have had in other hotels, but very high quality. Breakfast was a real highlight - fantastic pancakes and omelets freshly made. The pool bar also gave a nice alternative to the buffet at lunch and in the afternoon. We particularly enjoyed going to Mike's coffee shop for coffee and cake in the afternoons. Drink - first time we have had not only local spirits, but mainstream brands as well included (Bombay Sapphire, Smirnoff etc.) Hotel facilities - the hotel is very modern with beautiful green areas, lots of palm trees and fantastic facilities including games room, pool tables, mini golf, giant chess, gym, and many different areas to relax in the sun. The hotel grounds are very large, so we found moving around was the best way to get away from the wind at different times in the day. Location - the hotel is set on a very long promenade which takes you all the way into Playa Blanca. Very nice to walk along and visit the town. Rooms - we went for the basic room (non sea view) and the first room we were given was on the ground floor but had very little natural light. We asked to move and got a room on 2nd floor facing the mountains which was great. Very large rooms, large flat screen with a lot of UK channels (again a lot more than previous holidays) Negatives: Welcome and send off - Found the hotel reception staff whilst pleasant could have given us more support when arriving in terms of where our room was, location of key things in the hotel like gym and indoor pool, how to sign into wifi etc. When it came to send off we weren't asked about our stay or asked to provide any feedback. Pay for in room safe - We had to pay 17 euros for use of the safe in our rooms - first time this has happened in any hotel! Room bathrooms - in both rooms these are large but in need of some work - looking quite tired now Not so much a negative but more a point to note, my wife and I were probably 40 years younger than most of the guests there. This could be time of year, but if you are looking for a big night scene then this might not be hotel for you. Again this suited us as we were looking for some real down time. More

Wonderful Winter Break
We can only agree with all the previous positive comments posted. Superb food, beautiful gardens etc. The Timanfaya Palace provided us with the relaxing holiday we were in need of. The manager attended the welcome meeting with one of his deputies which was a pleasant change and really did make us feel welcome. He praised and encouraged his staff which reflected in one of the most cheerful and helpful staff teams we've ever encountered no matter what their role was. The two Thomson reps were also a credit answering all our questions and giving lots of ideas of places to go. Our room was kept spotless. On the first morning we asked for a topper for the bed as the mattress was a bit firm for us and also requested a few extra coathangers if possible. By the time we got back from breakfast both requests had been met! It was the little touches that we thought made the holiday. A reception with a bowl of Lindt Lindor chocolates rated very high on my list- so much better than the usual boring boiled sweets! No deposit needed for beach towels and they can be changed at reception anytime you like. Cava at breakfast everyday and a reasonable one at that! Aperitifs related to the themed nights as you entered the dining room were a nice touch. Being book lovers we were thrilled not only to see a great swap library in the bar area but lots of nooks and crannies throughout the hotel where people dropped books for others to enjoy. We found a quiet place to sit in the evening was the sports lounge. Very few people were there unless a football match was on! We could sit quietly and read or use our ipads as the internet connection is good here and we could still enjoy the music in the piano bar down below. Internet connection was better on our balcony than in our room too. Plenty of well spaced sunbeds at different angles and with plenty of space around them. The indoor pool is a real bonus. Mikes coffee shop was a welcome break on several afternoons. The coffee is superb and always served with a smile. All the cakes look great but our favourite was the carrot cake. The best we've ever tasted and slices are huge. You could share one between two if you weren't on holiday! Enjoyed being on the promenade with great walks whichever way you turned out of the gate. This was our first visit to Lanzarote and we will be back....to the Timanfaya Palace for sure!!!More
RUNNING OUT OF POSITIVES !!!!!! ð
I told myself that after so many reviews there was no point doing anymore because I was running out of superlatives!!! However, after yet another very enjoyable holiday with my wife and daughter I have come to the conclusion that there is nothing wrong with repeating yourself if it's still very positive. What more can I say but many thanks to everyone involved with the Timanfaya, from the professional, attentive management team to the bar, restaurant, and room service staff for maintaining the high standard of service which we now take for granted on every visit. My special thanks to Jose Angel, Viky, Erik, Brahim, ( all of the inside & outside bar staff ) and especially my hero Pepe in the restaurant !!! We look forward to seeing you all again later in the year. Best regards, Paul Reed PS On a slightly more depressing note, I have just read probably one the most rude, nasty, vindictive reviews I have seen. Whatever complaints you may have, rightly or wrongly, about any hotel, it is common curtesy to be civil and not sink to the level of the gutter by using crude and offensive language. Having travelled extensively for many years ( including many times to Nevada !!!!! ) it was always very obvious to me that if you were polite to people, whatever the problem, they were invariably polite in their response. Unfortunately some people, like the person in question never quite seem to learn this lesson and only confirm the suspicion that all the animals aren't in the zoo !!!! Actually I have always thought that perhaps TripAdvisor should create another section which allows hotels to review their guests !!!!!!!! Good idea perhaps ? All the best ðð¬ð§ðâMore
Half way through our holiday,I'm sitting with a glass of wine bythe indoor pool in the sunshine.This hotel is fabulous,we asked for a room change which we got the following day, nothingwrong with the one we had,just personal choice. This is our 3rd visit and will be back in June to celebrate my birthday.Tried to pick somewhere different for a change but couldn't find anything to match here.Staff are the friendliest you will find, food choices are great,had our visit to the kasbar last night,steak was best ever.Dont want this holiday to end, More
Good Hotel but with some very minor issues.
Excellent hotel but it is geared more towards the older holidaymaker, the food was good and seemed to cater for all tastes. Try not to have a room on the first floor as views are restricted especially if you don't have a sea/pool view. We looked at a white wall !! Evening entertainment was ok but at times challenging. Annoying thing is if you want a safe then pay up and look happy.... bad really should be standard these days. Wifi was very poor and struggled to achieve a reception best place for Wifi is the piano bar.... This hotel is a long walk from the shops in the centre of the town which is a shame as far as I'm concerned. There is a nice sandy beach nearby which has sun beds available at a cost. One of the main plus points of this hotel are the staff, they are second to none and itâs spotlessly clean. Plenty of sun beds available with shade if required and they do stop people reserving beds until 0930 which is great idea just wish all hotels could do this.More
