Second Visit to Rubicon Palace and will Return
My husband and I stayed for our 2nd time from 04-01-14 for 2 weeks. We booked Privilage and our room was overlooking the sea just in front of the parrots. Room was spacious with plenty of wardrobe and cupboard space & was cleaned daily. Fresh towels also every day. Although we booked Prilivage we ate most times in the main restaurant especially at breakfast time as the food was always cold in the Vulcan restaurant - nothing worse than cold fried eggs ! The main restaurant always had plenty of choice and was always hot. We enjoyed the hotel and facilities it offered. The only downside for us is that once the piano bar closed at 11pm there was little to do, the entertainment lounge didn't offer the best in entertainment. All the staff are friendly and good, each has their own job responsibility and they do it very well. We will definitely be back to Rubicon PalaceMore

Great hotel, would certainly visit again
I just returned from the Rubicon after a week all inclusive with my retirement-age parents. Overall, we had a great time. The amenities of the hotel are excellent; we especially enjoyed - - the Asian fusion restaurant (which you can eat at once). It's adult only and the food is truly excellent - the Italian restaurant (again, you can eat once). Again, very good food and a pleasant change to eating at the buffet every night which can become dull on an all inclusive - the Mediterranean restaurant (which doubles as a pool snack bar in the day). We had an awesome 7 course meal here. When the weather allows you can seat on a huge boat which they've built in the pool, but as we visited in January this wasn't possible - the English pub. More authentic than most including pool tables and big screen football. Open til 1pm too. - the Spa - a great selection of treatments as well as a thermal circuit spa. My only gripe is that they charge Â£12 to go in, even if you pay for a treatment. The same is true of the gym, it's only free before 10am. Hardly a deal breaker, but worth knowing. Overall the food was excellent, the service was very good, the staff polite and the resort very large. You often have very limited food choices in European all inclusive, but not here thankfully. It's a 20 minute+ walk to the nearest beach but if you're more of a pool person then this represents no issue and it's also probably better suited to those who don't like to go on an adventure each day and are happy to stay in the resort. There is plenty to keep you entertained; pool, cinema, tennis, mini golf (which is rather tired!), volleyball, a piano bar (which appeals more to the 80+ contingent it seems!), a disco / show bar with entertainment every night and an arcade. Lots to do for all, well priced and nicely kept. Some of the hotel could do with a refurb to be fair, but I should imagine most people would enjoy a week or so here in the sun.More
Below average hotel
This hotel should be advertised as just a family hotel,because this is what it caters for we are a couple in are mid 60s ,the hotel is in a lovely setting,and is quite nice, rooms ok nothing to write home about,the food was always cold ,although I did find a microwave (thank goodness) the breakfast : the bacon was awfull the rest was the same ,but the breads and jams were delish,the coffe and tea from a machine,juice good yougurt and fresh fruit good,we enjoyed lunch better than evening meal,the alacarts were terrible,The entertainment was boring ,the man playing the piano what can I say ,the drinks were really good. This could be a really lovely hotel .All the staff from front desk to the cleaners and resturant staff spot on,just a shame about the food,and children not controlled .More

A Break to shorten the winter
We recently took a short break in lanzarote and decided to try a new hotel. So we chose tha H10 Rubicon Palace in Playa Blanca. What a great choice! the hotel was very large,however it was extremely well designed and the outside areas were quite a delight. More importantly the food choices were very good,the quality could not be faulted and there was a choice of 3 restaurants to have an a la carte meal as well as the 2 other restaurants for normal dining. We were also delighted to receive a free upgrade for our room and had the pleasure of a sea view as well as a huge bedroom and balcony.More
