This family-friendly place combines kids’ pools with gourmet dining. And the beach is just a short walk away.
Set in beautiful gardens, this hotel has the sea out front and Montana Roja in the background. There’s a small beach less than 5 minutes’ walk away and Playa Blanca is about 5 minutes’ ride in a taxi.
The hotel has 5 pools as well as kids’ pools, 1 of which has a pirate boat. 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.

Wonderful holiday at a brilliant hotel
We travelled as a family of 9 (6 adults and 3 children), ages ranging from 69 to 2 years old, and we all absolutely loved the hotel. We stayed in the superior deluxe rooms located on the 6th and 7th floors with fab views over the resort to Fuertaventura. The rooms were modern and clean, and beds comfy. The hotel its self is lovely, well maintained and very clean. There is a great choice of swimming pools, which suit both families, couples and individuals alike, lots of space so it didn't feel overcrowded. The kids particularly loved the pirate ship pool, and playing mini golf. The biggest surprise of all was the food, we booked on an all inclusive basis, and to be honest I wasn't expecting the food to be up to much, as we usually go self catering, eat out and find local restaurants, however we were all very impressed at the quality and range of food on offer. There are two buffet restaurants which you can chose from, one being quieter that the other but essentially serving the same food. We ate lots of lovely, fish, seafood, meats and paella, and problem was trying to decide what to have. We ate in the Italian restaurant one night, and although it was nice to be served the food was just ok. We ate out a couple of times, going down to the marina and playa blanca town where there is lots of choice. The piano bar is also great, with balcony having lovely sea views. Overall the staff were very friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is a good 30/40min walk into the centre on playa blanca or a 4/5 euro taxi ride (there's also a bus stop outside the hotel or you can hire bikes). There is a small beach a few hundred metres away from the hotel other wise the main beach is in the town centre. We are all well travelled and can be quite fussy, however we all agreed that we would happily return to the hotel and thoroughly recommend. Finally to those who moan about there being no "adult only" areas, please remember that this is Spain where children are celebrated and not frowned upon. The simple answer is book an adult only hotel!! More
Just stayed here 5th-12th may it was a fantastic holiday. We stayed all inclusive the food and drink available was great. Staff were all very friendly and helpful, great range of activities and staff were not pushy about getting you to join in but made you feel welcome to if you wanted. It was my partners birthday while we were there and the hotel gave us a complimentary bottle of Cava which was very nice. The a la Carte restaurants were lovely and again the food was amazing. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone, the only sight downside was the pools were all freezing! But good to cool down when the sun got to hot!More
stay at rubicon
My stay at rubicon palace brilliant with staff being helpful and very friendly also hotel was far enough from playa blanca to give peace and quiet to a very relaxing holiday. There is enough to do on the complex if you wanted and is especially good for families with children.More

One of the best
Booked after checking reviews. Stayed one week A.I. first week in May with 2 other couples to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.We were in room 3101 and friends in 3102 and 3103. Our room had two queen size beds and a small balcony same as 3103 but 3102 had one double but large balcony with sunbeds on it. These rooms are at the back of the complex next to 2 small quiet pools and about 3 minutes walk away from main pool and restaurant area. There is a sports bar about half way between the two areas that is open 6.30 till 1 a.m. All meals were of a good quality with lots of choice for starters, mains and sweets(too numerous to list). We booked a meal in all three a la carte restaurants. The Asian was excellent, the steak house good but Italian a little disappointing. Drinks are of a good quality for all inclusive e.g. Smirnoff vodka, Gordan's gin and schweppes tonic to name but a few. Loads of sunbeds around large pool but not in area where activities took place. Snacks during the day available from pool bar were plentiful and varied. Staff were first rate throughout the hotel from cleaning to waiting on and reception as well as animation team. Evening entertainment was of a good standard for all inclusive hotel. Would recommend this hotel for adults and children as there are plenty of different areas around complex depending on whether you want lively or quiet.There is also a good variety of activities and entertainment on offer for the whole family.More
Being generous with score as it's not all things to all people
I've given it 4* based on it being a good family hotel but it lacks badly with couples. I know their sister hotel along the bay is for adults and on hindsight would have been a better choice but it's more expensive but I would think worth it to be child free. Everything has been said about the beautiful grounds etc and i agree with that.However what it lacks in is areas that are for adults only ie pool and restaurant. Not everyone wants to eat with feral children yelling and screaming around the restaurants including the smaller of the two. Their manners and eating habits are atrocious and put you off your food. Parents are a joke as more interested in their smartphones than controlling their children.The staff are lovely and I felt sorry with the ignorance dealt out to them. So in a nutshell if you like Butlins and Benidorm then it's your sort of place. If not move on. By the way I have two adult children and 3 grandchildren who would know how to appropriately behave. I think you have guessed we won't be back.More
