Just arrived back from this hotel after seven nights could have easily stayed another week. Food fantastic plenty to choose from for all tastes, little area for younger ones with plastic plates. We went without children but if you do have little ones plenty of pools and entertainment to keep them happy. The all inclusive package is excellent brand drinks free on request tip ask for bells or smirnoff for example instead of whiskey or vodka, self help pumps for fizzy drinks water and beer in the pool bar if stronger stuff wanted staff behind pool bar very fast and helpful. All staff throughout the hotel excellent cant do enough to help always smiling and always talk. Town a short taxi ride with fantastic shops - taxi 4 euro or about 40min walk along the front. Only little gripe we had and not a complaint is that the air con is not brilliant. We are already planning a trip back I spent hours researching hotels to make sure I got the best one and honestly those hours paid off, loved it!!!!!!! Well done rubicon palace - FANTASTICMore
Loved this hotel
We stayed here last year and absolutely loved it. Should have written a review then.....we have come back from the other side of the island for a week and it was no-where near as good!! (It was Be Live Lanzarote - which I have also reviewed) So I just wanted to let people know.....Playa Blanca is the place to go!! The rooms were great (we upgraded for a reasonable cost for a spacious sea view), staff were friendly, entertainment was great, the staff were friendly and the surrounding area was great to walk out. Food was hot plentiful and tasty. A perfect hotel for families and couples alike.More

Beautiful hotel, large clean and well decorated.
This was our first visit to rubicon and I can say we will most certainly be coming back! With the children next time! There's plenty of choice of food and a microwave if like me you find you like your buffet food piping hot! Only down side to this hotel is the lack of toilets! There's none in any of the restaurant's and they are very few and far between, with the size of the hotel it doesn't take long till they are dirty and rather smelly. Biggest tip would be bring a flask if your all inclusive as you only get small plastic cups around the pool and you end up having to refill often. If you have children this is a hotel for you! The kids clubs are very good and the kids pool has a big pirate ship to play on, as well as parks. the entertainment is for all the family and brilliant. And there are TONs on sunbed's More

New Changes!Keeps getting better.
Just spent 10 days at Hotel. The new (3) restaurants are something you would expect to find in a 5 star hotel. Asian food fantastic and decor/staff brill! Hotel, staff as usual fantastic, and always there with a welcome and offers to help. Senior management always willing to stop and talk, and listen & action any ideas etc you may have to offer or suggestions! Food once again very good. And restaurants etc always being cleaned. Food (as normal), is always wrapped when moving between restaurants. Chef came from kitchen, and personally gave me a bowl of chile sauce(only asked where it was located)! So friendly. Only 'downside' is because it's its getting better each month. And, is so good/popular! Families 'etc are returning (like us), in droves, year on year. Finding it difficult to get in when we want (full occupancy), and prices are going up! ' Oh well' thats the price you have to pay to ensure you get "good quality" upon every trip. And peace of mind knowing when you arrive at resort its actually what you where expecting!More
