The Hotel H10 Rubicon Palace matches a gourmet dining scene with a close-to-the-beach postcode.
Set in beautiful gardens, this hotel has the sea out front and Montana Roja in the background. There’s a small beach less than five minutes’ walk away and Playa Blanca is about five minutes’ ride in a taxi.
The hotel has five pools, one of which has a pirate boat anchored in it. Taking care of meals is a selection of buffet and à la carte places, including a poolside Italian. At night, there’s a chilled-out piano bar.

Our last day today (Tuesday 8th August). The Hotel is lovely, pool big enough for everyone. We didn't mind that it was salt water, there are others that aren't. Restaurants are good, in particular the Asian, tasty Good! The Italian is fab too. Don't bother booking the Steak House, it's the pool bar by day and the food is awful! Meat was very fatty and luke warm, as was the water and wine! During the day the queues for drinks here can be long but wow, the staff are fast! You will get served within 2min. Food during the day here is basic but nice. We had a sea view deluxe room which was lovely and had a lovely view of Fuetoventura, will miss my morning brew looking across at that. Outside the hotel there is a path that leads to Playa Blanca but it is a long walk. We got as far as Flamingo Beach which took us 45min. The town is another 15min away. The beach is lovely, 12 Euro for 2 beds and a brolly and the water is shallow with lots of fish waiting for food. There are supermarkets here too but don't buy too much if you are walking back. Taxi will cost 4 euros 40 back to hotel. Climate here is the reason we will come back. That lovely breeze keeps you cool! The suncream adviser with his microphone comes every day. I thought I would try his Aloe Vera based suncream at 20 euros a bottle it's not cheap but it is worth it! I am going to be buying this online when I get home. The after sun too is worth purchasing. None of us burnt with this cream despite having factor 8, even my hubby who always burns! Definitely buy it! The entertainment here is just for under 10s. Nothing for teens or adults. We drank in the sports bar every night which is comfy and cool. All the drinks available here included in the All Inclusive is the best I have ever seen. Every spirit going available and cocktails! Mike's coffee place is excellent, all milkshakes included in AI as well as coffees and teas. Cakes are extra, the muffins are worth it. Sunbeds go early by the pool. If you go after 8.30 there are some available towards the back. Staff here are efficient and helpful. We won't be back purely for the reason that it's too far from the centre as we do like a walk around a town. But, if it was, we would definitely book again! More

A really enjoyable holiday
We have just returned from a fortnights holiday. As a family of 4 we had a garden suite right near the pools and restaurants which was excellent. Can't fault the room or location. Cleaned every day, toiletries and coffee stocked up. The pool and garden areas are kept immaculate. We tried the 3 main pools and they were warm and clean. Plenty of sunbeds but be warned people get up at the crack of dawn to put towels on. The buffet restaurants had lots if choice but you will queue for food such as omelettes, chicken and fish to be cooked. Also getting coffee in the morning can be a challenge. Tried the Italian which was nice but the Asian was very bland. My youngest son who us 11 loved the junior club and special mention must be given to Carlos. He is an absolute credit to the hotel. Full of fun and enthusiasm. I agree with previous comments about the pool bar. You will always have to queue for a drink. The queue does move quickly as he bar staff work tirelessly but wouldn't say friendly. Bit like a cattle market. Overall we had a lovely relaxing family holiday and if you're about to go you'll have a great time.More
GREAT HOLIDAY WITH BEST FRIENDS
What a fantastic hotel, something for everyone and every age. A great selction of food to suit every palate. The food experiences, USA, Chinese and Italian weretop notch. The pools are well designed and kids will love the daily entertainment. The hotel site is massive and worth a walk around to appreciate its beauty. We will definitley be returning.More

Great all-inclusive, excellent service
H10 Rubicon Palace was our first trip abroad as a couple and in didn't disappoint. From the moment we arrived the service was always excellent. We arrived particularly late (we were the last ones to check in that night) yet the kept the entire canteen open for us and saved dinner for us. The staff had even still stayed late to look after us. We were there for 10 days which we truly maxed out! The spa was a lovely retreat and the swimming pools were also great - plenty of space and central to the resort. Our room was a good size and close to the restaurants, pools and spa, as well as the games rooms which was particularly fun. The food and drink was good quality and plentiful - we definitely left a few pounds heavier! The snack bar was all you could possibly want and the various different restaurants in the resort kept it exciting. We were also close to Playa Blanca for some beach time and the nearby Marina which had amazing seafood. We also managed to climb up the Volcano behind our hotel on the last night - pretty great view of the sunset! All in all it was a very pleasant stay and would happily go back in the future. More
Lovely holiday in Playa Blanca
My husband and I stayed in this hotel in early July and were worried, due to the many bad ratings on Tripadvisor with regard to building works. We needn't have been. The staff were incredible, just the best! We had heard about building works taking place and that the surrounding areas would be noisy. We were not disturbed at all. We arrived in the evening and were greeted by a chilled glass of bubbly which was very refreshing. We were not expecting the dining room to be open but they reopened the small dining room at 11pm for us. Brilliant! We were taken to our room which was a bit of a walk! I think the room was number 6620. We were told the room had had a refurbishment but does not look anything like the pictures posted on either the hotel or other holiday company websites. There was plenty of room for storage of our clothes etc., in the room but I feel that this could easily be improved upon if the people who design the room would stay in it for just one night. I got up in the night and walked into the dark coffee table which stood on the dark flooring, whilst making my way into the bathroom. The curtains, which looked brand new looked as though whoever had fitted them didn't know what they were doing. They were held up and bunched together. It needed to be overseen. However, having said that there were blackouts behind them which meant no light came in. We had a large balcony which overlooked the edge of the car park but when we were there the weather wasn't warm enough to sit out. The cleaning lady was lovely. Good, quick, efficient and very personable. The bathroom was okay. Basic toiletries were supplied. The walk to the main part of the hotel is difficult if you want your hair to look good on arrival. As you turned each corner, maybe we had freak weather, I would pull my hair back to try and keep it in order. Having said all this, the food was a delight, the drinks fabulous. I loved the cocktails and sitting out on the balcony before dinner with a view overlooking the pool and sea over to Fuertaventura was beautiful. We spent every evening in the piano bar and enjoyed most of the entertainment. The staff would serve us drinks at the table and we were very impressed with the service of Peter who came from Hungary. He made us feel very special and is a credit to your hotel. We did have a problem initially with neighbours who were noisy, using bad language and arguing, banging doors in the early hours but we had a word with reception and never heard any more unwelcome sounds from next door. Another well done to your staff and one of the reasons I am returning, with a girlfriend this time, in October is because both me and my husband believe that the customer service and attention to detail mean that if there is a further problem it will be dealt with quickly and efficiently. The coffee shop was great and I have never holidayed on an all inclusive basis before where the hotel provides pre-packed food that holiday makers can take out if they want a packed lunch or a meal to take to the airport. Pre-packed sandwiches, biscuits, cakes and small bottles of water that can be picked up at the pool bar were invaluable. I can only say well done to the hotel. The weather wasn't warm enough for us to go into the pool but hopefully on my return It will be warmer. We enjoyed long walks into Playa Blanca each day. The bus stops directly outside the hotel and, once again, the hotel's reception gave us full details. I am now looking forward to my holiday in early October. A great week.More
