This was my second visit to the Rubicon Palace I travelled with Saga Rita the rep. is excellent. The hotel is very clean and i had a very good room overlooking the sea with large balchony. There was a certain amount of work going on in the hall but it was very unobtrusive. The food in the hotel is excellent and there are now other restaurants apart from the main restaurant which one can book (adult only, Italian,Oriental and American) which are waiter service. Unfortunately the weather was not very good but the hotel could not be blamed for that. I had a very good holiday.More
Lovely Family Holiday
Room was clean, staff helpful, food was mostly good. Our children loved the kid's club and the Mini Disco. They were happy, and therefore so were we. There was a good variety of drinks on offer. The all inclusive beer was good, I wouldn't recommend the wine. The Asian restaurant was disappointing, dishes were bland and inauthentic, but the decor was nice and the service was very good. Car rental with Cabrera Medina (Lanzarote company) for the week was about the same as hotel transfers. With the car we visited El Golfo, Teguise Pirate Museum and Porto del Carmen. Car hire included child seats, second driver and excess, so was good value with no unpleasant surprise costs. No problem returning car for early flight. Free Wifi only works in the main part of the hotel not in the rooms.More
A Hotel that genuinely tries....and succeeds
This is a really good hotel, far bigger than it seems in brochures, and is exceptionally well run. The building and surrounds are immaculately maintained, the food in the various restaurants is great for an all inclusive place and, in the three speciality restaurants, as good as you will get in any restaurant, anywhere at five times the price. The staff, with one exception in our experience, were uniformly cheerful, helpful, keen to make sure that all was well and professional in every way. The young international interns, mainly from Holland and France, had clearly been well trained and are well supported...their charm and energy is really refreshing. The one exception to this was the gaunt, straggly, dishevelled lady in charge of the desk at the spa. She was unwelcoming, unhelpful ,impatient and dismissive and wholly unlike any other member of staff that we encountered....and its a shame because the spa itself and the treatments it offers are, again, excellent in every way, including value. If you have some spare â¬â¬â¬ it is worthwhile upgrading to Privilege Status. If you take the whole package you get a bigger and better equipped room, access to a private lounge, with generously provisioned self-service bar, and a private sun terrace. You eat in private restaurants with waiter service and get better quality wine, not that the wine provided on all inclusive is all that bad....just that the other is better! The main public restaurants can get a bit noisy and crowded at popular times and, if this is a problem for you, upgrade! Like some other recent viewers we were there at a time of really bad weather by local standards but were offered a heater immediately which solved the problem. I could go on and on...but would only be repeating the positive comments of others. Its a good hotel with wonderful staff, comfortable accommodation, quiet and enjoyable surroundings and offers great valu.More

Could not ask for more (apart from sunshine lol)
Hotel very clean, we went out of season so there was a small amount of maintenance going on but nothing that would interfere with our holiday and it was nice to know that the hotel was being kept up to par. Lanzarote happened to be having the worst winter in decades which had us requesting extra blankets and a fire for our room along with a replcement bulb for one of the lamps which appeared effortlessly after an hour or so after speaking to reception. I was very impressed with the whole of Lanzarote. I felt safe when out shopping (although always kept my belongings secure) and was not harrassed at the shops or market to buy. My only little grumble (as with lots of other reviews) is the fact that we never had a hot dinner all week, everything is luke warm although i must say very nice. Well done all the staff at H10 as would come again..... Just perhaps not in February.More
GREAT HOTEL BARGAIN PRICE
Stayed at the Rubicon Palace for a week at the start of February even though the weather was poor we still had a great holiday. Emailed before arrival mentioning it was my birthday on the day of arrival and we was upgraded to a superior room no extra charge which was excellent big living room massive bedroom etc. Hotel in general was well organised always clean and tidy with hard working staff always with a smile and a Hola, food was great in the buffet restaurant we tried all three alacarte ones Italian was good, Mediteraean excellent Asian not as good wife had a curry she though was lousy i had duck which was nice so depends on your choice of dishes. All inclusive drinks excellent some branded labels available on the AI deal Smirfnoff vodka, Gordons Gin but if you dont state Smirnoff etc you are given cheap stuff. Leave hotel by beach gate and turn right to walk along the promenade into Playa Blanca a good 30 minutes steady walk couple of shops and bars on route and a lovely beach about half way. All in all lovely hotel big praise to the hard working staff shame about the weather but would return to this hotel if come back to Playa Blanca.More
