This family-friendly place combines kids’ pools with gourmet dining. And the beach is just a short walk away.
Set in beautiful gardens, this hotel has the sea out front and Montana Roja in the background. There’s a small beach less than 5 minutes’ walk away and Playa Blanca is about 5 minutes’ ride in a taxi.
The hotel has 5 pools as well as kids’ pools, 1 of which has a pirate boat. 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.

The Rubicon Palace is a large complex with nice landscaped garden areas. The entrance lobby is located in the main hotel building and is very impressive with a large piano bar tucked away round the corner. The main building consists of three floors, reception and piono bar on the top, entertainment theatre on the first and restaurants on the ground floor. There is a very impressive courtyard on the ground floor which seperates the two main restaurants. There are also four other restaurants three of which have to be pre-booked, an Italian, an Aisian and an American (1 visit to each is allowed per stay). The fourth is for guests staying with the 'Privilege' package. The rooms are located mainly in 'blocks' scattered around the complex. Our room was large and was decorated to a good standard with daily cleaning, some of the rooms though may be quite a walk to the main hotel block for some. There were plenty of sunbeds and getting one was never an issue (the hotel seemed quite full during our stay). The food on the whole was good with plenty of choices although quite often some of the dishes were not as warm as we would have liked. The main restaurant could do with a makeover to improve the look and feel of the place (the lighting could be described as industrial). The smaller main restaurant on the other hand was very pleasant althought the food choice was restricted. We tried the Italian a'la carte restaurant and enjoyed it very much. We stayed on an all-inclusive package and were very please with the quality of the drinks and service. The entertainment team try hard but have seen better shows at other equivalent 4 star hotels. On the whole very pleased with our stay but some areas could be improved.More
Another great holiday
This is the third time we have stayed here, this time we upgraded to privelige. This was the best thing we could have done, the room was superb and over looked the sea, the dining wa superb and all off the menu and served by waiters. The private bar was amazing - well worth paying that little bit extra. A superb holiday we will definitely be back.More
A great family holiday, would recommend
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the H10 Rubicon Palace. We were a party of 5. Myself and my husband my Mother and our 3 and 1 year old children. It is a very impressive Hotel. The receptionist was very efficient, friendly and helpful at check in and the porter took our luggage and showed us to our room. The Hotel is a huge complex which takes a little while to figure out. Reception is on the 6th floor, the show bar and entertainment on the 4th floor and the main buffet restaurant is on the 2nd floor. The 2nd floor is really like the ground floor as it is also on the same level as the main swimming pools. Our hotel room was a large family room. Our 3 year old had a very substantial modern bed (sofa bed chair) the rooms were nice and modern. Very good shower and spacious bathroom. Comfortable beds, nice balcony etc. The hotel grounds are stunning and kept beautifully, there are slopes and ramps for pushchairs and wheel chairs as well as lifts and stairs. There are lots of facilities with 3 parks for children, 3 baby/kids pools and a heated pool. The pirate ship and pool were excellent. The entertainment staff all work very hard and our children really enjoyed the mini disco. Daisy was a big hit! The kids clubs are actually free so it was good to make use of them. The main buffet restaurant was excellent. Having two small children we weren't able to take the opportunity of using the a la carte restaurants but we were more than happy with the buffet restaurant. Honestly, you would have to be an incredibly fussy eater to not think the food and range were excellent. Both our small children ate extremely well as did we all. There is so much choice. Our only grumble, which was soon rectified by Reception and our First Choice rep was our cleaner was not up to scratch and was either lazy or not trained properly. This was soon sorted and we then had a different cleaner who was excellent and did more than enough to thoroughly ensure the room was clean. There are nice walks to do along the promenade. The hotel is ideal for families and has a lot to offer, we all had a great time.More

H10 Rubicon Palace
What a great hotel and holiday destination. The hotel is situated in large grounds and caters for all needs. The facilities and food are excellent and variety is well thought of. The rooms are spacious and serviced everyday. Due to the size of the hotel the only thing lacking is sign posts. There are a number of good restaurants nearby within 5 minute walking distance of the hotel. Well worth a visit.More
The welcome into the hotel, receptionist and service was A1. The room was everything we had asked for. The food was excellent. The place was so clean wherever you went. This hotel I would with out a doubt recommend. The staff were so helpful too.More
