Gibraltar a big random rock

... the rock and once I could see other tourists near the apes I felt a bit better. It turned into a long walk down but it meant we got back to the border about 8pm so we had missed the queues at the border that had been reported between 4pm and 8pm. I enjoyed my time in Gibraltar as it reminded me of England with lots of pubs and English people. Things were a reasonable price in the shops as they are V.A.T free. I'd like to go again, next to do some sailing or to head over to ...

Ok, it would have been nice to read through all the stuff on the wall but we didn’t want to get thrown out before seeing the gun so we made a beeline for it. Short stubby thing compared to the one up top but what it lacked in length it made up for it width. (Do you have any idea ...

From there we had great views of Spain and across the strait to Africa. It is believed that Hercules made the Strait of Gibraltar by seperating Gibraltar and the Northern peak of Africa. The strange thing about the rock is that it's upside down. The top ...

... of directly ahead) meant they could be utilised down to the Straits they were meant to protect. It was an interesting wander today with views out the holes in the hill towards the airport – the only airport in the world that has a highway directly through the middle of the runway! Classic. The runway was constructed using the rock removed from the tunnels. It has a very short runway and is apparently the 5th most dangerous in the ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Caleta Hotel Gibraltar

    The Caleta is OK

    from

    We stayed at the Caleta the last week of Sept.

    Must agree with previous reviews -- the hotel is extremely in need of refurbishing; the carpets and furniture are very worn, and the pool was unsuitable for swimming.

    On the other hand, we had a large family suite, with a view of the Rock, and were able to get a good price. Staff were very accommodating.

    Excellent staff but shabby room

    from

    We stayed here for a week in August. The common areas are well appointed, reception, bar area and brealfast room. We loved the little garden whci is an absolute haven. However our room, although it had a superb view out to sea, was rather shabby. There were cigarette burns in the armchairs, the fridge had a broken leg and leaked water onto the carpet, some of the tiles in the bathroom were cracked etc. The balcony too, needed a coat of paint. Nevertheless the staff are marvellous and the service excellent. Not really a four star hotel though, more a two/three.

    Great place to stay

    from

    My daughter and I have just returned from a short break to Gibraltar staying at the Caleta Hotel and cannot sing its praises enough. It is set right on the beach and well out of the town, which is possibly a blessing, as the town is incredibly busy and somewhat noisy. The hotel is very clean and spacious and we had a twin room overlooking the Mediterranean, even though I had not paid the extra for a sea view! The staff were so helpful in booking us taxis, phoning for boat trips etc. We were on a B&B basis, which was just as well, as the price for a Continental breakfast was £8.50, whereas we were able to eat as much as we liked for nothing extra, including full English if so desired. The pool is very clean with always plenty of free sunbeds and towels supplied. There is also private hotel access by steps down to the small sandy beach. The only drawback I would say is that the hotel is about a 20 minute walk from the town, so it does mean either waiting for a bus or getting a taxi to go out and return in the evening, but the bus fare is only 60p and a taxi is far less than a fiver, so I would consider this small price to pay for the situation of the Caleta with its lovely verandah overlooking the sea where afternoon tea is served, a lovely treat for £6.50! I would thoroughly recommend this hotel for a very restful and do-nothing-much break, although the dolphin trip is not to be missed!

    Happy Honeymoon

    from

    We stayed at the Caleta from the 27th of June till the 7th of July and had a fantastic time! the breakfast was wonderful ate so much that every day needed to sit down for an hour before touring!

    The hotel itself was very plush and cosy looking, our room had a huge balcony only downfall was it had only two chairs and not a table.

    The staff were very friendly and when you needed a taxi reception would order for you and it always came within five minutes.

    The food in the lounge was very affordable and a good range of tasty snacks.

    We would recomend the hotel very highly to anyone, and have decided to return to the Caleta for one of our aniversary's!

    Caleta Hotel

    from

    We had viewed the virtual tour of the Caleta Hotel in it's web site, it looked beautiful but in fact it is very run down, especially outside. Our room was ok but the balcony was dirty. Arrived late due to delays with flights. We were in a large party, some of the party got into the dining room just before 10.45 and were grudgingly shown the menu. One or two of us were 10 -15 minutes later and were refused service. No one offered us even sandwiches, crisps would have done we were so hungry. The bar staff were quite unfriendly as well, although there was one very helpful lady behind the bar. The reception staff and chambermaids were friendly. Getting taxis proved to be difficult as well.

    Run down hotel

    from

    I stayed at this hotel in june 2004. It is very run down and shabby and in major need of refurbishment. Our room was on the first level and the corridor stank of sewage, so before you left the room you took a deep breath and ran for the stairs. The room was ok but the furniture was worn out. There are terraces around the hotel but they are covered in weeds and broken cement statues and they appear to be crumbling away so we did not go near the edge in case they gave way.

    Best Breakfast in Gibraltar

    from

    The Caleta is a great choice for a stay in Gibraltar. Parts of the hotel look dated but the rooms are clean and staff are very friendly.

    Breakfast is buffet style with a great choice of items and leaves you full for the rest of the day and is served in the restaurant with great views of the med. There is a frequent local bus service that will take you from the hotel to town and costs 40 pence per adult ( look for the number 5 bus). Ask at Tourist information about the Tunnel tours and tours of the lower St Michaels caves. We hope to be back again next year

    Great but some problems

    from

    hotel was lovely, view was amazing. staff were very friendly. we had an amazing time and didnt want to leave.

    Rock on

    from

    A lovely friendly place, manic buses, mixture of people, a good lively atmosphere in town centre, cheap shopping. Plenty of eateries to suit all budgets. Go dolphin watching from the harbour.Caleta Hotel has superb views, adjacent to the only beach, clean well decorated rooms, piano in cocktail bar. Small seawater pool (with poolside bar and loungers) which loses the sun in the afternoon. Friendly English speaking staff. Well worth a visit - don't miss the apes.
