H10 Rubicón Palace

4

This Canarian behemoth shakes things up with a big-is-better spin.

H10 Rubicón Palace looks like a chunk of Caribbean has floated across the Atlantic and anchored itself on the southern shores of Lanzarote. Imagine lush palm-strewn gardens wrapping around a cluster of white-washed buildings, interspersed with a smattering of candy-coloured façades, and a handful of gleaming pools. And this seafront big-hitter certainly has the same intoxicating vibe as the archipelago on the other side of the ocean. However, an otherworldly backdrop of the rust-red Montaña Roja volcano roots Lanzarote’s largest hotel in place. Interiors are classic meets Art Deco, with an emphasis on Canarian colours – think palm green, lava black and stone white.

This village-style complex ticks all the good-time boxes – a total of 14 restaurants and bars including the Bistro Bar with healthy snacks, Mike’s Coffee and a food truck, a thalassotherapy spa, lush gardens, eight pools, and even schooner boats moored in swimming pools. While this lagoon-style centrepiece is aimed more at adults, kids are more than catered for, with three children’s pools – one arranged around a life-size pirate ship with water slides.

Throw in a jam-packed evening entertainment programme, and you won’t even have to leave the resort if you don’t want to. And if you do, you’re a half-hour walk from Playa Flamingo and a 20-minute drive from the Martian-like landscapes of Timanfaya National Park. Rooms are splashed in crisp shades of cream and white, with monochrome accents and teal bursts. Book a Standard Double Balcony or Terrace Room for garden views, or go all out on a Standard Junior Suite Balcony or Terrace for glorious sea panoramas and a slice more space.
