Having never stayed in the same hotel twice my husband and I made an exception for the Timanfaya Palace, having had such a wonderful experience there 2 years previously. We were not disappointed and as we sat with our drinks in the bar on our first night, in beautiful surroundings and a child free environment we both took a deep sigh and said 'I love this place'! I would urge people to go All Inclusive as the drinks are branded drinks not just local spirits, including cocktails and there is plenty of choice with the food. Ice creams, bottled water, tapas & pizza at the pool bar are all included too.
We had an upgrade to a room with a sea view and a large balcony, it was spacious and clean although it was not on the front row and overlooked the roof of the corridor below and the skips at the back but it did have a sea view!
Our main complaint last time was the fact people were getting up before sunrise to reserve sunbeds and we were pleased to see that a new system has been implemented and any towels on reserved beds before 9.30am are removed although unless you attend the welcome meeting no-one informs you of this. Having been to the hotel twice and Playa Blanca for the last 3 years we did not attend this meeting. There were plenty of sunbeds and after walking into Playa Blanca one morning we still managed to find some free ones after lunch. The winds were particular bad for the first part of the week and we were beginning to feel a bit battered by them but being British we were on holiday and we were determined to sit in the sun wind or no wind, however the heat was deceiving and I did get burnt even though I used suncream and judging by other guests bright red patches of skin so did they.
Hotel staff are friendly and work very hard. We loved Angeles who worked in the Piano Bar & Pool Bar. She was always smiling and had boundless energy.
We can't fault the hotel, however if I have to be picky I would say that in some communal places it was looking a bit tired, although I think they are doing some work so maybe its on the 'to do' list.
