Recently returned home from a week at the Timanfaya Palace.We booked our flights with JET2 from Manchester,private taxi with Travel Republic from Arrecife airport to the hotel, both were punctual and efficient, the hotel was booked online also taking.the Priviledge Superior Room Half Board option (pay on arrival in pounds or euros).
On arrival we were allocated room 253 on the 2nd floor at the end of a corridor with an excellent sea view and sunny balcony.The receptionist took 50 euros deposit for 2 towels,fridge and safe keys which were fully refunded at the end of our stay(part of priviledge deal).
The beds were comfortable and very large and there was a bathroom with toiletries and a hair dryer, towels were changed and toiletries replenished as required.
The room had a TV, but only had news channels(BBC NEW24,SKYNEWS and CNN). which was disappointing since we like to watch some TV even when on holiday in the evening.
The Priviledge Package came with Bathrobes,slippers,daily newspaper(order/collect from shop onsite at midday).The Priviledge Lounge (accessed gained with room key) contained branded drinks (e.g Bacardi),beers,tea/coffee,soft drinks and botttles of water,Internet access was also available(password changed daily -see reception for latest).The room also contained a TV.
The Dining Room was buffet style for both breakfasr and Dinner.The `show cooking` available for both meals(top left corner of dining room)was very popular and guaranteed hot food which was not always the case from the main servery in the evening.The general quality of the food was good with plenty of choice(take the Smoothies at breakfast ( by show cooking ) instead of vending juices).We enjoyed a meal at the Kasbah Al la Carte one evening at no extra charge with the Priviledge Upgrade.One downside in the main dining room was that some of the seating
would only provide a backrest if you were over 6` 6" tall !
There is plenty of promenade walking availablefrom outside the hotel to the lighthouse(1hr) or the Rubicon Marina(1hr).Beyond the Rubicon Marina the coastal path cotinues on towards Papagayo beach for those wanting a longer walk.
Taxis are cheap,we paid 5 euros from the Rubicon Marina to the Hotel when we didn`t fancy the hour walk back..
The hotel is trying to stop sunbed reseration,we did not have a problem obtaining a sunbed when required,however the staff did remove towels left on sunbeds before 9.30am on the day of our departure.(subbeds are very comfortable).
Would we stay again ? - probably
