First holiday with our 14month daughter and 1st wedding anniversary.
Hotel was nice, food was great. A did struggle with my toddler eating as lunch was a 1 and tea at 7pm which my toddler was past eating by then. Plenty to do at hotel day and night. Nice walk into playa blanca to shops. Weather was brill.Reception staff very helpful and the staff at mikes coffee shop very good. More
Wonderful time here ... Staff are very helpful. I'd recommend going full board ... You'll actually end up saving money. Pools are very good and they have lots of activities for the kids. Bottom line ... I'll be back More
Best food for an all inclusive!
The whole experience was great. The room wasn't ready when we arrived but we entertained ourselves in the cocktail bar, which, I must say, were amazing. Lovely rooms although the cleaning service was a little slack, like coffee cups not changed, ash trays not emptied etc, but in the whole scheme of things, it wasn't important. The staff were all super friendly and good fun. The hotel has a lot of facilities and the food is probably the best we have had from an all inclusive stay, fresh, full of variety, healthy and tasty. Disappointed that there is no decent beach but lots of swimming pools made the stay good. Bad pillows though!More

Fantastic week at the Rubicon Palace
My Wife and I went to the Rubicon Palace for a week in September and it was wonderful. As soon as we walked into the Rubicon Palace the Hotel blew us away, we were greeted with a glass of Cava and such great service at Reception, where we were checked in very quickly and efficiently. The Food was fantastic at all restaurants especially the Steakhouse which was fantastic, the Steak was cooked perfectly and the atmosphere was wonderful. There is several pools at the Hotel and plenty of sunbeds so there was no trouble getting one at any part of the day. Big mention to Mikes Coffee bar which served the best smoothies and coffee a really great place. The all inclusive option at the Rubicon was mind blowing, all the food was fantastic and you certainly were not spoilt for choice. Only mention which is in no way a fault of the Hotel, but some British Families took the all inclusive option regarding drink to a level which made me ashamed to be British. But of course that is not fault of this wonderful HotelMore
Amazing hotel - would defo recommend
6 of us stayed here for 7 days. First impression of the hotel is it is enormous and very clean. Reception staff greeted us and were lovely and happy to help. The safe is 17â¬ but that's if you stay for 7 days, not sure how much more it will be if you stay longer (you pay this at the end of the holiday) Rooms - not the biggest size but your hardly in there anyway, tv and fridge, lovely clean bathroom and shower is powerful although goes hot then cold. The bed was very wide but not long enough if someone is tall. Pools/sunbeds - we mainly stayed at the main one with the pool bar, it's salt water, quite cold but on a hot day it cools you down. It's very shallow also, not deep. We had no problems what's so ever getting sunbeds and there was plenty of them if you want to go to the pool later. The other pools haven't got a bar by them you would have to walk to the pool bar which is only a 2 min walk. Restaurant - each meal is delicious for breakfast, dinner and tea. Wide variety for everyone we didn't struggle once to find anything. Staff were brill, each one is so friendly. Only thing I noticed was the chairs could do with a good cleaning, some had stains and food on. Entertainment - some nights good others not. Spanish dancers, magician, singers. The animation team did one night and it was a game show which wasn't the best but there is also a piano bar which you can go to if you want a relaxed night. The theatre bar and piano bar shut at 12, the sports bar is open until 1am. The hotel its self isn't in the best location. To the main town it's about a 25/30 minute walk or you can get a taxi into town for 5â¬. Loads of shops/bars/restaurants. It's in a quiet location if people are looking for a more relaxed holiday. The staff were amazing, they work long hours and not one didn't have a smile on their face. You can get your own drink - beer, soft drinks, they give out bottled water. You just get spirits from the bar. Overall the stay truly was amazing, weather is lovely in September (quite windy so buy some pegs from the supermarket as our towels were blowing off) the hotel is beautiful and you'll have a fantastic stay.
