Great place

Good choice of restaurants and bars. The market is definitely worth a visit if you’re looking for day out.

Bad
Dec 2020
Sadly the Rubicon marina has badly evolved in the past few years and what was known as a 4 stars marina has become a bad experience for many sailors berthing at Rubicon and complaining about the bad management and the many issues they are facing, mostly when booking and paying in advance for a longer stay.
Indeed too many sailors agreed that they have been deeply deceived by feeling unwelcome, the amenities conditions and the overall poor management at Rubicon marina.
First of all marina Rubicon, unlikely any marina in EU is measuring every vessel upon arrival and thus berthing fees are now calculated according to the overall length of vessels including their dinghies and overall structures and not their initial Pavilion letter's specifications (up to 3 or 4 meters have been added in some case, affecting considerably the berthing fees).
Secondly, the water service at marina Rubicon costs 15 eur to fill up water tank and it is now forbidden to spray/wash the boat as well as to fill up any other tank, bottles etc. Note that usual water service costs between 8 to 12 eur max (Balearics).
The advertised wi-fi in the marina's brochure is in fact not working throughout the entire perimeter of the marina (only available at the one sailor bar) and marina's guests/clients are complaining that it is impossible to connect their devices through 4G as well due to the existing and defect wi-fi installed equipment throughout the marina and interfering in connectivity.
A lot of complaints have been issued and transmitted regarding the unhelpful and unwelcoming behavior of some staff members at Rubicon which are also deceiving the marina's clients and their guests during their stay, mostly when berthing fees have been paid upfront.
Since few weeks sailors staying at Rubicon marina are complaining that the showers amenities are providing cold water only, management's answer to the problem is that they are currently working on it, yet it still hasn't been resolved to this date.
Few sailors having booked at marina Rubicon for longer period are communicating their discomfort of feeling monitored in their activities and movements within the marina.
Finally we believe that it is important to inform any newcomers that there is a huge new commercial center construction site near the marina's entrance which greatly affects the quietness and spreads dust and sand all over the area.
Overall and for the time being we can only give a one star in our evaluation and review of marina Rubicon, we sincerely hope that we will be able to update our review with better rating in the near future.

Best nautical greetings and fair winds to all of our sailor's family and friends.

We love Lani’s restaurant and very reasonable prices for food. Staff are excellent and extremely friendly.
Beautiful walk in Marina Rubicon and amazing fish so take bread with you to feed them.
Very exclusive shops here and nice restaurants and bars. Gorgeous location to chill and watch the harbour.
Shopping Centre across from the marina also if you want to do some shopping, sports shops, phone shop etc.....
The market is here each week also which is a nice busy experience with Street food and Mojitos cocktails stands.

Mediocre market on Saturday

I know that the pandemic is affecting everything, but this was disappointing - only 15/20 stalls. Teguise on Sunday was so much better.

Go and check out the yachts!

For me it’s all about the yachts and the sailing. If you like that, it’s a great marina. They have competition sailing workshops with several of the Olympic teams training. I saw Finns and Nacra.

This is a lovely marina. Nice places to have a drink. Select your restaurant carefully. The harbour view was unfortunately shut when we visited.

Fantastic location
Aug 2020 • Couples
Fantastic location with excellent bars and restaurants, and a twice weekly arts and crafts market.
Great views of the marina and the open sea looking to Pappagayo beyond.
Definitely worth a visit.

Not worth going out of your way.
Aug 2020 • Family
The place itself is nice enough but the shopping area is poor half of the place is empty or shut down.
The shops that are there are overpriced and nothing special.
There is a nice little stall doing ice cream and drinks but its just not worth going out of your way to come here.
