Myself and my boyfriend stayed at the H10 Rubicon palace last week from the 8.11 to 15.11.
This hotel is not ideal for a mid-twenties couple. The entertainment is catering for families and elderly couples and there is no youthful spirit in the place. Could do with more cocktails and a bar that plays 80's to current music
Choice of Drinks included on All Inclusive - Cava, Beer, Bacardi, Malibu, Havana and Jager were all included, and the measures were very generous.
Choice of Swimming pools, the main pool can be busy due to kids, hotel entertainment and restaurant bar, but we found 3 quieter pools around the complex which were just perfect for total relaxation.
The Piano Bar and Balcony - The piano bar is large and comfortable, but the best feature was the balcony attached where you could sit comfortably for hours, drinking your free drinks and watching the sun go down, great spot. Great hard working staff in the piano bar too, very friendly and helpful.
Bedrooms - Spacious, comfortable with balcony. Very happy with room.
The Food - The food quality was really poor. Warm to Cold, bland and boring. When you are all inclusive you get a la carte meal thrown in. We looked forward to this as the buffet food was just upsetting our stomachs at this point. Service in A la Carte was terrible, I ordered Carbonara and it tasted exactly like the bland buttery creamy pasta in the buffet and my boyfriend ordered the chicken, only to discover it was raw in the middle. I complained to the waitress about this and the meal was taken away and nobody even tried to apologise to us. Terrible service.
Location - It is just too far from the town of Playa Blanca. Fine in taxis, costing €4.50 and very prompt. But to walk took nearly a half an hour, and considering how bad the food in the restaurant is, this walk is essential to get anything tasty.
Disco bar & Beefeeter "Irish bar"- The entertainment team do seem very friendly and energetic, but the entertainment brought in from outside is just terrible. Out of sync terrible carnival dancers were the highlight. We were told at check in that they had an Irish bar on location called the Beefeeter, as an Irish person, I was intrigued as to how an Irish bar got the name Beefeeter (traditionally an English name). Turns out the pub is not Irish nor English themed, it is just a wooden room with a small bar and a couple of tvs that play the same champions league highlights over and over again each night, Terrible place, but hard working friendly staff.
H10 Loyalty Service - I registered for the H10 loyalty service before I made my journey, at the hotel I showed my card at the desk twice and I was told to come back another time and they will try link my account up as they could not do it at the time, I eventually gave up. Another couple who registered at the hotel after the reception asked them to, received a free bottle of cava to their room for doing so.
