My girlfriend and I stayed at the Timanfaya Palace in July last year. We are a couple in our early 20's and we decided to go for two weeks on the all inclusive package. We spent months researching where to go for our first holiday together, and after a lot of searching we came across the Timanfaya Palace. From the moment we stepped foot into this hotel we knew we had chosen well. We were welcomed with a cold glass of bubbly and a greeting from our thompson rep, after a short wait to check in we were on our way to our room.
We had booked a double sea view room and when we arrived we were surprised to find that we had been upgraded to a superior room on the 2nd floor (219) as it was my girlfriends birthday during our stay. Everything about our room was spot on, it was very clean, had plenty of space and a lovely bathroom. The bed was huge and very comfortable which was great as my girlfriend couldn't push me out while asleep! We had a great view of the sea and pool area and was great to sit out on the balcony at night to watch the sun set.
The food at the hotel was really good, please don't listen to any previous bad reviews as some people can be really picky. It was a buffet restaurant With a different theme each night, in which the food varied. We got to eat at the al la carte restaurant once each week, which was a real treat. We loved it that much that we ordered the same thing both times! Boring but we couldn't resist! As well as the food being good the selection of drinks on the all inclusive option was also great the only downside was that only a few of the cocktails were included but we would defiantly recommend going all inclusive if you can! Just a word of warning for all the blokes, if you are dining in the hotel restaurant for your evening meal you have to wear a long pair of trousers or jeans, however during the day shorts are fine. For anyone wanting to eat out there is a lovely Italian restaurant called Luna Rossa just a 10/15 min walk down the road, next door to it is a really nice chilled out cocktail bar, I took my girlfriend for her birthday and the cocktails were expensive but worth it!
A couple of tips for everyone:
Unfortunately if you want a decent sun bed you will have to get up early, there is a rule saying that you can't reserve them but its not enforced. We found the best thing to do was to get up and put your towels out at 8am then head off to get some breakfast, by then the sun is out.
If you are thinking of taking the water taxi it's a great way of getting to the Rubicon Marina Market and the Papayago beaches but don't make the same mistake as us and walk all the way there to find its closed on a Sunday!
We found the best time to head down to eat was around 7 pm, if you get there that little bit earlier you get to select your own table which is nice.
We tried the free scuba diving session in the hotel pool, it's was great so we booked to go out in the sea which was literally a 30 second walk away, would really recommend it to anyone!
To sum up we both really enjoyed our time at the Timanfaya Hotel, one of the main reasons we booked this hotel was because it was an adult only environment and we didn't want a hotel full of children, we went home after our two week stay feeling relaxed and de-stressed. We highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a chilled out holiday and we will definitely be returning in the future!
