We can only echo what a lot of other reviewers have said about the Natura Palace. Yes it is a very nice hotel- we requested and were granted, 2 x rooms very close to each other on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool and sea. Very nice views over to Fuerteventura.
We thought the prices of drinks in the hotel were reasonable, and most nights we had a litre of Sangria with our dinner. But did use the supermarkets across the road, and down at Flamingo Beach- for water, cola, crisps etc. I also took my travel kettle!!
We hired a car from the Rent a Car desk in the hotel lobby- very quick efficent service and fairly reasonable at around 58 euros for a family car. We used the car to visit the Cesar Manrique Foundation (well worth a visit), and the Timanfaya National Park (again very good value at 8 euros each for a coach tour of the volcanic mountains.
We ventured into Playa Blanca 3 times, (we walked there and back)- and had some nice lunches on the seafront and at the Rubicon Marina.
We took the Princess Yaiza Water taxi out to the Papagayo Beaches- this was a fantastic trip - 15 euros each for the boat, which moors near the beach and you then get in a dinghy which takes you right up to the beach. The beach is lovely, and the sea a clear turquoise- and there is a snack bar at the top of the cliff- although we didnt use this as we took our own drinks. You then have a choice of times in which the water taxi returns to the beach to collect you. We only stayed about 2 and half hours- but it was a great trip.
Back to the Hotel- we found it very quiet- and again more geared towards the more mature travellers!!- we only ventured into the entertainment lounge twice (abba show and a dance/comedy act)!!! we have certainly seen much better!!!!
We probably wouldnt return to either this hotel or Lanzarote- we stayed at the Cordial Mogan Playa in Puerto Mogan Gran canaria - last year...now that we would definately return to- and actually rather wish we had!!!!
All in all, a pleasant break for us after my sons exams (and it was my birthday whilst we were there!), weather was overcast in the mornings, and pleasantly warm in the afternoons- yes..nice but not fantastic!!
