The Hotel H10 Rubicon Palace matches a gourmet dining scene with a close-to-the-beach postcode.
Set in beautiful gardens, this hotel has the sea out front and Montana Roja in the background. There’s a small beach less than five minutes’ walk away and Playa Blanca is about five minutes’ ride in a taxi.
The hotel has five pools, one of which has a pirate boat anchored in it. 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.

Please don't listen to the negative reviews!
I visited this hotel from 29th November until 6th December and I have to say it was a fantastic stay. I read pretty much every review on trip advisor before I went and panicked when they started getting very negative, I genuinely didn't want to go I was so worried. But from the holiday I have just had I can't see what people are moaning about! Yes the hotel is big (biggest in Playa Blanca) but that's better! No scrambling for sun loungers in the morning and you aren't squashed next to each other round the pool as there are so many of them. People moaning about not being able to find places....they give you a map when you check in so it can't be that difficult! I cannot fault this hotel in any way. Food was lovely including all 3 a la carte restaurants. If the plates or glasses ever ran out they where replaced within a minute! Staff worked so hard to keep the place tidy and they couldn't do enough for you. Always very pleasant and polite. Our room was beautiful, we were on the back block by reception and the view was lovely. Rooms cleaned every day to a high standard. Again nothing to complain about! There is work being done around the pool changing all the tiles but that really wasn't a problem for us. The new ones looks very nice so can image the whole pool area looking even nicer in a few weeks when they are done. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone and cannot wait to go again next year. More
Couldn't have wished for better
Absolutely amazing holiday, I would even say the best we've ever had. No complaints about anything. Rooms was brilliant. Entertainment was the best, always something different and fun, plenty to do for the children! All staff was always friendly and couldn't do enough to help us. Very clean no matter where you went in the hotel! Views was perfect! After a very difficult year this holiday is defiant what we needed! Didn't want to come home!! We have I'll defo be returing!!!More
My wife and I had previously visited the H10 Timanfya Palace in Playa Blanca last year and were very impressed. We had decided to return this year for a family holiday but unfortunately the Timanfya doesn't take children. However we had seen the Rubicon and decided to go there. Glad we did, Brilliant hotel! The complex is quite extensive covering a large area. The gardens are lovely and it's nice to walk around the grounds. Staff were very good, friendly and helpful in all areas. We stayed all inclusive. The food was good but not as good as the Timanfya Palace. The wine served on all inclusive was pretty awful so avoid. Still it didn't spoil our stay. We did complain about it and they gave us a complimentary bottle of wine which was very good. The bars are very good. The room was situated in a small block, like flats. The room was for a family and we found it perfectly adequate as we spend little time in our room generally. The hotel building is very attractive and similar in some ways to the Timanfya. The are lots of facilities including a private spa type club which is very nice. (Extra cost)There are three swimming pools, a large one, salt water, one medium sized and a children's pool with a pirate ship.our 7 year old grandson thought it was brilliant and we spent a lot of time in the two smaller pools. There are lots of activities for adults and children and the latter are well run and safe. The hotel is situated on the sea front and there is a long pathway which takes you through to the town of Playa Blanca, good beach there. Lots of small restaurants and bars along this stretch in either direction. We enjoyed walking along this. You can walk all the way to the marina which is well worth a visit but is quite a distance. Some people take a taxi to Playa Blanca then walk the rest of the way. At the rear of the hotel is a volcano which you can walk up, it's not too energetic and offers lovely views of the surrounding area. Well worth the effort. A trip to Timanfya National Park is a must. We went on the trip that included a camel ride, a good family laugh! Traveling by bus is very easy and cheap. If you do visit Timanfya then don't go by car. There was a terrible traffic jam. We went by coach which had priority and just sailed past all the traffic. You can't drive by car around the volcano area, only by coach so it's not worth the car. We had a brilliant family holiday in this excellent hotel. Our grandson wants to go back and so we will next year. Highly recommended for family's.More

Had a lovely holiday at the H10 Rubicon Palace, Lanzarote. Lovely hotel & grounds. Plenty to keep us entertained day & night. Large well kept complex with a lovely promenade outside. Can't fault anything at all. Staff really good & helpful, Good professional shows, or the lovely piano bar. Choice of the A/I restaurants or the Asia, Italian or American Steak House. Some upgrade work going on, but not a problem. Hotels have to keep on top of necessary improvements. Will definitely go again.More
Hotel beautiful but would not return!
We are actually still here and have had a an up and down time so far...... the hotel is enormous and on the face of it has so much to offer lots of places to eat, lots of pools but it comes with its challenges it took us 2 days to find the children's pool and 3 days to find the bar with evening entertainment for kids! We asked on the first night where we could get a drink after dinner with our children and were advised the piano bar, we were made to feel very uncomfortable by the many distinctly older guests that were there one even rolling their eyes and muttering shut up to my 1 and 3 year olds at 8pm this has been a theme at 4 out of the 5 pools too, is this a family hotel (as sold)?? The food in the buffet restaurant is just ok and really hectic but the speciality restaurants and snack bar are quite nice. The reps that gave us our welcome meeting were very keen to sell excursions and really knowledgable about Lanzarote but gave no info on the hotel facilities and didn't really know much about it when when asked. We are definitely enjoying the lively children's pool (now we have found it) but some of our experiences have put a real downer on our time here.More
