Just back from visiting this hotel with my husband and a family friend.
First impression was that the Reception was very busy with people waiting to check in. The staff did not appear very experienced and although very pleasant it took so long to get...More

Hi, not sure you can go Privilege on a Half Board basis, when I arrived you were given a Monthly News on the hotel and it lists in here what you get for Privilege. You do have breakfast and dinner in a restaurant for Privilege only but I believe lunch is served in the small of the buffet restaurants. You get a room in a different part of the hotel, free entrance to the gym, free entrance to the water circuit of the Thalasso Centre (you still pay for treatments and entrance to that part of the Centre. It says you get Bathrobes, slippers and VIP amentities, daily newspaper, Nespresso coffee machine, pillow menu and exclusive towels for the pool and drinks on half board are not included (which probably does mean you can go half board). I stayed as Solo, as I am a widow and have to pay extra anyway. I booked a room with a sea view. It was in the main block of the hotel, Room 7058, to say it is large is an understatement, I had super king size bed with a stool at the foot of the bed running nearly the width of it. lots of walk around space. On this stool were Privilege Towels, I had a nespresso coffee machine, bathrobes and slippers and even a set of bathroom scales. These were a charcoal grey in colour and I think possibly since the Privilege has all been upgraded these could have been from previous Privilege colours but that doesnt matter they were still available in my room. The balcony therefore was huge with table, chairs and two sun loungers. I had sun in the morning to the right hand side as you look at the sea and until dusk at the other side which at this time of year is approx 5pm ish. I had WiFi everywhere in the hotel, I was happy with the cleanliness of my room, the housekeeping staff work tirelessly. I dont believe my room was a refurbished one as skirting boards and odd paint in doors were chipped off but upon checking the price I would have to pay to go Privilege was another £350 each per week I considered this unnecessary. I think it all boils down to 1) your budget 2) the exclusivity of dining. I was more than happy with what I had, it was spotlessly clean, the staff very friendly and attentive if you needed them, food very good, and if you already have robe, slippers and towels and a nespresso machine already in your room with a wonderful sea view why pay the extra but obviously its all personal preference. Bit long winded this reply but I hope it helps you decide. I stayed here 9-16 November and if I return to this hotel would try and get the same room again. If you havent been here before, which I hadnt as it was my very first holiday alone since I lost my husband, this hotel is huge, its more like a village which at first was a little daunting for me, but you do get use to it quickly. Finished now so hope it helps and enjoy your holiday.

My wife and I have been to Lanzarote 7 times over the years, October, November, December and February. December/January can be unreliable for weather so it is down to luck. Generally though, low 60's to low 70's but risk of a bit of rain, still WAY better than the UK! In all inclusive all the known brands are there, but you need to be a seriously heavy drinker to get value from the additional cost, it was £400 extra for my wife and I to go A.I. so we didn't bother, a G&T (Gordon's) and a glass of fizz 11 euros in the Piano Bar. Watch prices in pool bar, 2.4 euro for a beer that is two mouthfuls!!! Rip off here. This was our third visit in November to Rubicon Palace, VERY disappointed this time, queues in the evening for drinks very bad with people standing less time than you getting served first then getting argumentative, staff FAIL to help situation because they are so short staffed, and therefore so busy, they can't concentrate/keep an eye on things/people. My wife and I love Lanzarote in the winter, and will be back next year, but will definitely avoid the Rubicon next time, really hope this helps!
