Good story, believable characters, an interesting conflict, good language, a bit of mystery, some emotional punch, appropriate length, unexpected plot twists, decent dialogue... oh, and one or more ideas, well executed.
SF books are still books.
I will add that while I can enjoy stories that involve time travel -- Lost, Star Trek, etc. -- I've never read or seen anything that I didn't enjoy despite the time travel. My favorites all have a conspicuous lack of time-space continuum shenanigans, even when the story flirts with time manipulation, as with Frank Herbert's Dune.
Added to my list!
Also, Tim Powers seems to have written a novel that inspired the fourth Pirates movie...
