My husband and I stayed here from 6th to 16th October for our birthdays. I would like to reiterate all the positive comments about this hotel. It is definitely the best hotel we have stayed in, and we've stayed in a lot. We have stayed in Lanzarote itself five times in the last three years, always at the Gold hotel in Costa Teguise, which we have had no complaints about. The Timanfaya Palace, however, exceeds it in so many ways, in my opinion. The hotel grounds are very attractively laid out, the location is excellent, right on the promenade and the rooms are not only large but well-equipped. The bathroom in our room was spacious, bright and spotless with a good range of toiletries. The shower was very efficient and it was lovely to have a shower screen rather than a clinging curtain!
Our room, on the ground floor (170), had a lovely view of the pool and the sea beyond and we watched some amazing sunsets from the balcony as well as the terrace connected to the piano bar.
Although the food was very good, I feel the hotel could offer more vegetarian main meals. I could always find something to eat, however, and the desserts, including the ice creams, were the best I've had on holiday. Although there were no vegetarian options in the pool bar at lunchtime, I was provided with vegetarian pizza, toasties and salads. Delicious! Again, though, it would be preferable for these to be included on the menu, I dislike appearing fussy by having to ask for an alternative. The birthday treat of a candle, cake and Cava ( not to mention being serenaded by the waiters!) was a lovely touch.
The staff in all areas of the hotel were professional, friendly and helpful. Jesus and Manuel deserve a particular mention. They were never hassled when busy and always had time for a quick chat.
All in all, a fantastic hotel we will definitely go back to in the near future. More
First of all and to avoid misunderstandings , this is a good hotel. We agree to most of the positive comments given by other travellers. But not all! Very positive indeed is the skill and positive attitude of the whole staff. NO one excepted. The best asset of the hotel. Rooms good, food very acceptable. The lay out of the hotel, swimming pool and garden areas fantastic.
However not so positive is that the management of this hotel seems to think that guests prefer to stay inside. Why else can they explain that good outside terraces are virtually non excistent. For lunch only 16 tabels (300 rooms) divided over 2 areas and not enough chairs or umbrellas. For a late afternoon or evening cocktail even worse. Yes there is a large area (balcony) in front of the lobby bar. But at any given time only 4 tabels with chairs and abt. 10 tabels without chairs (the area is large enough for 50 tables) . Especially early evening (sun set) standing room only, which is the same later on in the evening when a lot of guests would like to sit outside. Pitty no tables/chairs available. The management should realize that we guests from North Europe prefer to enjoy the evening outside. Restaurant terrace outside not available .
Last point corridors are very noisy because of floortiles.
Going back here, I do not think so.More

Not what we expected
First of all. If you are 30- 50 please look at some other hotel.
This hotel is for 60+.
Entertainment is not good, trust me.
The food in the buffet is not warm.
Service in the reception is very reliable on who's working.
Sometimes ok, somtimes ignorant.
Kasbah restaurant ok.
Discobar is the best thanx to the staff.
No bar near the Privilege area near the indoor pool.
Hotel itself is ok.
Will i return, maybe 2030 when I'm retried.

Another amazing stay in a brilliant hotel
We have just returned from another amazing holiday at the Timanfaya Palace Hotel. Having stayed here in May and enjoyed it so much we couldnât wait to return.
The Privilege room we had booked was room 254 which had an amazing view directly over the sea and was towards the right hand side of the hotel (if you have your back to the hotel facing the sea). Being at the end of the hotel it was extremely quiet and only a short distance to the pool. These rooms are fully equipped with everything you would expect including a Nespresso coffee machine with pods.
We always book a Privilege room on an all-inclusive basis as we prefer the choice of eating and drinking freely around all the hotel restaurants and bars.. With this option we ate in the Kasbah restaurant at breakfast each morning and so instead of queuing at the buffet in the main dining room we had our choice cooked to order and served to our table. And in the evenings we ate in the Kasbah mostly as we prefer waiter service to the buffet.
The reception staffs were as always very attentive and I find that if they personally donât know the answer to a question they will endeavour to find someone who does. We had a small problem with a loose fitting in the bathroom and it was fixed before we returned to our room. ALL THE STAFF ARE AMAZING! Unlike P13AOK reviewer I find them infinitely cheerful, (maybe they just didnât know what to do about his own grumpy countenance) attentive and hard working. The bar staff work all day either in the pool bar and then the piano bar and are just the same from dawn until dusk. I would give special note to Alfredo and Fran in the Kasbah for outstanding service. Please will someone promote Alfredo and give him a rise otherwise you are going to lose him to another hotel. Most of the staff were at the hotel in May and I always think this is a sign of excellent management as it means it is a good place to work.
With regards to the sun lounger system it is excellent. No reserving of sunbeds before 9.30am which means no getting up early. You knew the rules P13AOK so you should have remembered what your mother always told you and go the loo before you go out.. The âtowel policeâ as he puts it do remove belongings before this time so beware. Having said this there is never any problem as there are ample sun loungers to go round for everyone.
Location wise it is in a perfect spot for us, gorgeous breeze coming in off the sea most of the day and a lovely âpromendadeâ on which to exercise and then walk out into the Marina Rubicon if we want to stretch our legs after a day by the pool.
Will we be going back? Most definitely! Thank you to Vicky and all the team for making our stay so special. We look forward to seeing you again soon.More

Stunning hotel & service
For the past 12 years we have holidayed at this hotel. Each year it gets better. The hotel is stunning. The rooms are beautiful. The staff will do everything in their power to help & advise. All you need to do is ask. There is so much variety of food & it caters for all types of diets. There is also a modern gym with a sauna & steamroom, which is free to all guests. The entertainment is good. The views from the main bar are spectacular. There is a lovely walk along the promenade outside the hotel which takes you to a small beach & Spanish restaurants. Walk a bit further & you will enter Playa Blanca, which again, has lots of Spanish restaurants & bars.
I would recommend this hotel for any couple wanting a relaxing holiday.More
