Lovely, clean hotel. Stayed a week all inclusive, great choice of optics and cocktails included. Each night had a different theme in the restaurant, or you could book to eat in the other restaurants. Great choice of food and all lovely. The room was nice and spacious, with tea/coffee making facilities. Bathroom had a shower and a bath, and a full range of toiletries available including toothbrush and razor. The gym was free between 7am&10am, however a spa day pass gave access to the gym. Spa pass was â¬24 for 3 days. Single day passes were 10â¬ Free wifi available in public areas, however still managed to get access from room balcony and just inside the room. All in all a great week, will definitely be going back.More

Had 10 days in the H10 Rubicon with my grand daughter. We had a brilliant time. Met some really nice people. The food was good, a great variety. The entertainment was really good. Soul hunters were brilliant and the Chinese acrobats. Also the animation team were really good, they performed grease, loved it. They also had named brands of spirits at the hotel, they had smirnoff and schweppes so I was really happy. We went to the spa for 3 sessions, very relaxing. I have never been in a spa like that, a must visit when you are there. We dropped on with our room, we were next to the pool, reception, spa, so was central to everything. Just to say a big thank you to the animation team, you know who you are. We will certainly be visiting this hotel again.More

Just gets better
We returned to the hotel for the seventh time in early December and it just gets better. As usual, as my wife is disabled, i contacted the hotel beforehand to ask for a suitable room near lifts etc. I could not have been more pleased with the room allocated (6039), just off reception and right next to lifts with stunning views across the pool to the sea. Just great. The food in the main restaurant as always was themed on different nights and there was so much choice it was quite amazing.It was lovely to sit outside for both breakfast and evening meals and enjoy the food and sunshine. And nothing was too much trouble for the staff. On our first morning my wife enquired if there was any porridge and the chef made some especially for her. More than that, it was arranged for porridge to be made for her every morning at our usual time so no delays and he even came out to meet her and ask if his porridge was good. Yes it was great. Thankyou so much. Since our,last visit, Italian and Oriental restaurants have been added and you can visit each one once per stay, as well as the mediterranean restaurant. We visited both the oriental and italian venues and could not have been more pleased. The food and service was of the highest standard and with wine included, it was a wonderful way to spend a slightly different evening.Goodness knows what you would pay for such a meal and service in a similar posh restaurant in England. No change out of Â£100 I would be sure. The hotel is set in wonderful grounds with both quiet and busy poo areas, with a nice water feature threading through the site. It's a pleasant 45 minute walk into Playa Blanca along the promenade and the bus back is only 1.40 euros per person and with a 30 minute service it's easy to get back if you are tired.. The piano bar in the evening is a wonderful location to chat, meet fellow holidaymakers and enjoy the entertainment. And with such a wide choice of all inclusive branded drinks, it al ladds up to a great place to enjoy the winter sun. One final comment. While there,. I decided to buy a speaker for my mp3 player. I went to the shop near the English pub in the hotel grounds and found one which seemed to fit the bill;. Unfortunately, the n ext day, ti would not "speak" to my player. I went back to the shop and the manager could not have been more helpful or concerned,. He went to great lengths to finally locate on which would speak to my player. A lot of trouble for him and thanks from me. Had I purchased it from Playa Blanca I would have spent half my holiday travelling back and forth to get things sorted. k .[uin . Sinced our visit last yearMore

Fantastic family break
Stayed here with friends and family for a week In December. Overall a fantastic time away. The hotel is brilliant, clean, loads to do and see and eat and drink. Variety of food is excellent (no issues with food being cold) loads of nice drinks and you can help yourself to soft drinks wine and beer. The oriental and Italian restaurant are well worth a visit. Entertainment team are brilliant, so hard working and always smiling. Staff are brilliant and there is plenty to do whatever your age. Wifi only good in reception but is free. Enjoyed the entertainment on an evening, recommend the beefeater for a few beers pool and football on the TV Playa blanca is nice, you can walk there in 40 minutes and loads to do plus it's cheaper for bottles of water and other supermarket items. I would definitely return here in the future, for the money we paid its excellent value More
This was our third stay at the Rubicon Palace starting on the 17th November for a fortnight. We had joined the H10 club on our first visit and this time got an upgrade to a privilege room overlooking the seafront room 9823. The room, staff, food and drinks were all excellent. It is brilliant being able to have all of the main branded drinks available all included in the standard 'all inclusive'. We hope to be back in 2015 for another wonderful holiday. Many thanks to all of the wonderful staff who work tirelessly to create the perfect holiday.More
