Just had a week allin from the 16th.Returned to this hotel as last time we visited we had a great time,but things change.What other people have said about the food being at best warm is right ,we didn't have a HOT meal all the time we were there,and we also got flooded under the door but didn't get any towels,had to use the bath mat.Entertainment was ok.two good nights with guitar legends and a motown group.Our room was 276 paces to reception on one level [6th floor] and we weren't the farthest out,its a big complex.overall this is a lovely hotel with great staff let down by a few simple things.More

Great for us but not for all
We have just come back from a lovely weeks holiday at the Rubicon Palace hotel which for us was one of the best hotels we have stayed in but only because we decided to go Privilege. The hotel is very large and some of the rooms can be quite a distance from the main building. Talking to some of the older guest they didnât like the hotel only because of this reason which is understandable and we also noticed that the ground lighting is very poor once dark so therefore you always had to concentrate where you were walking and watching out for the steps. The hotel is also one of the furthest away from the resort centre so if you do not like walking then it would be a taxi ride into town. Now for the Privilege upgrade , this will not suit every one and if you like to make the most of all-inclusive buffet food and drinks with entertainment then thatâs fine and most people would ask why spend all that extra money on Privilege(as it is quite a bit more expensive) but it suited us in every way. Our ideal evening (and lunch) is sitting down in a restaurant where I can choose from a menu and have my food served to me. With this upgrade you get to eat in a separate A la carte restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner with excellent service and great food. There is also a separate Privilege lounge with a bar, coffee and light snacks with an outside sitting area. In addition, you are entitled to most brand drinks, bottled soda, bottled water and also upgraded room on the sea front with free mini bar. Being in a smaller environment with Privilege we met and spoke to a lot of lovely people and made friends with many couples who we hope to meet again next year. All the staff were very good and even the assistant hotel manager, Paula, would walk around and ask if everything is ok and note down any suggestions you may have. I would like to make a special mention to two members of staff, the first is the evening /breakfast Privilege restaurant Maitre d who was from Bulgaria (sorry never got your name as you went on holiday) who was so friendly but always remained very professional in every way and made good recommendations if required (but please never listen to his weather forecasts). The second was a young waitress called Gabriela Marineo who served us in many different restaurants and always took great care of us and always with a fantastic smile, a big thank you to the both of you for making our holiday that extra special. If we had to complain about something it would be that we both thought the room cleaning was not up to scratch with the room made up very late in the afternoon (not good if you like an afternoon nap) We will defiantly go back and hopefully meet up again with the staff and friends that we made.More

Pray it doesn't rain
This was our fifth stay at this hotel and we came with our friends and my mum. Foodwise things have altered a bit with the introduction of 3 themed restaurants which you can visit once each stay. None of these we're particularly outstanding but did provide a nice change from the buffet restaurants. During the holiday there were quite a lot of showers and the first day of rain we returned to our rooms to find my 72 year old mother's room was awash with rainwater than had come under her door. We reported this but had to wait until the cleaner came round until the water was cleaned away. Showers and heavy rain persisted during our stay and the next afternoon water was again pooling up to the door, I rang reception who sent the housekeeper round with just two towels and no other attempt was made to remedy the situation. We talked to other guests who were having the same problem. One couple couldn't open their wardrobe as water was in front of it. The hotel in no way was concerned about my mum's safety while in her room and we had to try and cope ourselves by using hotel towels and bedding to block the water to prevent the room flooding again. It would have been so easy for her to have slipped on the wet floor. Next time we visit we will stay at another hotel and would advise elderly holidaymakers to do the same when holidaying during winter months.More
Great family time
a party of 6 adults and a 2 year old all inclusive. we had a great time. yes the food could have been hotter but not a problem. we did see one woman call her husband over to take a photo of an empty omelette tray!. the woman cooking was working so hard it was only empty few mins but I imagine the person who took photo was going to complain. great menu of foods, one of our group is vegeterian and there was loads for him to eat. although on the promenade its not got a beach, but not a problem as its 5 min stroll to a little cove with sand and sea, then a further 20min stroll to Flamingo beach its a lovely stroll this beach is brilliant, then if you carry o its a further 20min walk into town of Playa Blanca again great beach and swimming. we really enjoyed the town if you got a taxi its just less than 5Euro. A couple of times a week there is a market at the marina, this far more met my expectations of a market as some really good stuff. really good friendly staff at he hotel always ready to help. trip to Lanzarote uncovered was worth the trip. we would definatly go again to this hotel plus good air con!More
