Lanzarote – H10 Rubicon Palace

Host report by Rob Richardson

Lanzarote is a volcanic island in the Atlantic not too far off the West Coast of Africa. The big attraction of this holiday was the weather. Daytime temperatures all fortnight were about 19C, roughly what you would expect on an English summer day. The Rubicon Palace is a five star hotel with lots of activity all day. More than one guest was a regular at the Pilates, even preferring them to Andrew’s seminars! I lost interest when I discovered that it wasn’t something served with chips.
