We had a late Autumn week at the Timanfaya Palace on the south coast of Lanzarote and it was lovely. The hotel is in a great location with some short walks along the promenade to local bars and restaurants, and longer walks if you feel more energetic. The staff were friendly and helpful and the lady cooking the omelettes at breakfast deserves a special mention as they were cooked to perfection every time. The hotel was clean with plenty of places to sit or lie in the sun or shade, and we were speedily served in the bars and restaurants. Don't forget to check out the coffee shop on the ground floor. We had a very nice room overlooking the pool area and the sea but I would recommend some anti slip mats or grips in the bath as the bath became quite slippery during showering and also getting in and out could be quite dangerous as there was no grab rail and we risked pulling the towel rail off the wall every time.More

2nd wonderful holiday this year at the Timanfaya Hotel.
We had another great 2 weeks in October at the Timanfaya Palace what a wonderful, relaxing hotel and just as good as we had remembered it from January this year. Their are plenty of places in the outside areas to get sun or shade. There are plenty of sunbeds with sunshades and everything is spotlessly clean, there could however be a few more little tables for the side of the sunbeds.
We had a sea view room which overlooked the pool and sea which allowed us a perfect view of the most wonderful sunsets in October.....fabulous
We booked on a half board basis and for us as not big drinkers was absolutely fine, so we hope the hotel keeps this option and does not change completely to All Inclusive as we seemed to be in the minority on the half board option.
We think the thing that sets this hotel apart from others is the staff- they are so efficient and friendly giving excellent service and making you feel very welcome throughout your stay.
The food is of good quality with plenty of choice, hot buffet, cold buffet with salads, show cooking of meat and fish, and always a carvery of some kind plus various themed evenings throughout. We felt on this occasion the waiting for bacon in the morning from the show cooking area was longer than it had been in January and although this was not a major problem we did feel that there was not enough staff in that area to cope at busy times.
All drinks are branded and measures are very large, we slept very well !!!!!
The room was kept very clean by the team of maids, thank you it was appreciated. We think that the rooms needs brightening up a little and given a bit of colour the runner on the end of our bed was looking a little worn (unsure why they are there as they serve no purpose). The kettle in our room had to be put on the floor as the lead did not reach the socket, minor issue and we still got our cuppa.
I used the indoor pool everyday and thoroughly enjoyed it (I think I did a 1000 lengths in the 2 weeks so hopefully that helped to swim off all the lovely food I ate) I would have loved to use the main pool but it was far too cold maybe something could be done to warm this pool so it would get more use from the holiday makers- only the very brave ventured in even though the weather was fabulous for the 2 weeks the pool did not warm up. I felt that it was along way to go to get a drink from the indoor pool area so maybe a small bar could be set up.
The entertainment was fine with some acts better than others but then this is always down to personal choice.
We had recommended this hotel from our 1st visit this year to our friends and they went in March and loved it.
Keep up the good work in making the Timanfaya Palace a wonderful holiday destination and we hope to be back in 2015More

We had a girlie week in this hotel, there were four of us. As soon as we arrived the staff couldn't do enough for us. The food is excellent the rooms are clean and comfortable. The pool area is clean and tidy and very well kept. I would like to say a big thank you to the dining room staff and the bar staff especially Carlos he is a credit to the hotel, knows his job inside out and was always very cheerful. (hope you had a nice break Carlos) This is our second visit to this hotel and we were pleased to see that some of the staff were still there. Amazing place. Thank youMore

A Wonderful Experience.
We were not too sure what to expect from a âgarden viewâ room and initially we were rather disappointed with the outlook - a few cactus plants and beyond that a processing facility which we assumed had something to do with the hotel. We were on the top floor of the west side of the hotel and soon realised in fact we had a good room as some rooms on the bottom floor were almost subterranean.
Our room, number 335, was quiet with a large comfortable bed and a very good shower. The food was first class with fresh salads and a good selection of hot dishes each day. One evening the chef brought out the biggest turkey I had ever seen no sage and onion stuffing but an absolutely delicious fruity gravy. Our last dinner was a superb Chinese meal that any restaurant in London would have been proud to have served.
There is an a la carte restaurant and if you are on the all-inclusive option you can have one visit a week. If you are considering all inclusive or half board and if you are either on a tight budget or a teetotaller then all inclusive would be my recommendation. With this package you get most international alcohol brands for instance our favourite gin Bombay Sapphire, try this with a Nordic Blue tonic, some excellent cocktails no day is complete without a fresh Mojito. At lunch or dinner the all-inclusive option had a good selection of excellent wines. The draught beer is also very palatable.
The staff were friendly and cheerful despite apparently working long hours. There was one character Hector who appeared to have a few roles and his most memorable was his drinks workshops one day making Mojitoâs and another making Pina Colada which we got to sample at the end of the workshop â thanks Hector.
The entertainment was reasonable we watched couple of shows the tribute to Queen and Elvis was very good. The piano bar not surprising had a pianist a couple of times a week and on other evenings a saxophonist both very good. Not so good was a singer guitarist called Andy. He seemed to think that his mediocre talent could be disguised by turning his amplifier up to a far too high volume. I asked a waiter if the volume could be reduced âour guests like it this wayâ was his response I wonder if he had bothered to ask them.
The gardens were tranquil no noisy children or loud music and behind the garden there is a promenade which runs the whole length of Playa Blanca there is no traffic except for cyclistâs, joggers and walkers.
My wife and I were both saddened to have to go home and had it been possible would have stayed for another week. Hopefully we will return to the Timanfaya Place we met a couple who were on their eighteenth visit and heard of others who had been there twenty five times. Some parts of the hotel are in need of some refurbishment but overall a splendid hotel in a pleasant part of Plays Blanca.More

One of the Best!!!
My wife and I spent 11 days at Timanfaya Hotel in September and can honestly say it was one of the best holidays ever. Our stay didn't start off too well, as on booking in we were given no direction for our room, No 428, until we asked which way please? As All Inclusive we were not offered the key for our Mini-bar which we collected the following day and were given no details concerning the room safe. Our walk to our room was quite long and the outside of the corridor, in the car park, could have been given the same attention to cleanliness as the rest of the public areas in the hotel. What a shame. Maybe Jorge could attend to this as he is well in control of the hotel. Rant over!
On the more positive side we would fully recommend this hotel to any couple wanting a quiet, restful, peaceful holiday. Our room was very spacious with two double beds and a spacious bathroom with shower. All kept very clean by a team of maids who work exceptionally hard.
The hotel is situated in a lovely place with lovely sea views and next to the promenade which takes you along to a small beach - unfortunately with no shade, but still a lovely beach. The main restaurant gave an excellent choice of food to suit all, in my mind still sufficient for vegetarians. A different theme night each evening and always welcomed with a drink associated with that country's theme.The waiter/waitress service is second to none and could not be faulted. All were very attentive and welcoming. The same applies to the poolside restaurant as it is also run to a very high standard and a lovely touch is the tapas brought to your table on sitting. I would definitely recommend All Inclusive, it was well worth it. Good choice of drinks, and they were branded names for all spirits. Good choice of Cocktails and decent beer.
The daily entertainment team of Kelli, Maria, Hector and Tiago was of a very high standard and ensured that all who took part in their activities had a wonderful time. The evening entertainment was fair and varied. Thank you all.
All 'All Inclusive' clients are allowed to take dinner in the Kasbah Restaurant once for each week booked. The food in the restaurant is exceptional and once again. Gjanco and his team were very welcoming and attentive, again with a glass of bubbly.
It was nice to know that whenever you went down to the poolside you were able to obtain a sunbed - maybe not exactly where you wished, but come on, plenty of availability. If you dont want to use the poolside why not take advantage of the smaller but quieter area by the indoor pool. Still very pleasant. Only let down was that drinks were not available but I was informed that this is being rectified.
All in all an excellent holiday, so much so that we have already booked for September 2015, same time Gary and Sue. I would advise you to join the H10 club and book through the hotel and receive the discounts, use Resort Hopper for your transfers and Jet2 for your flights, if possible. We have - and saved Â£600 into the bargain.
Thank you all at the Timanfaya for an excellent holiday and look forward to seeing you all next year.More
