Let me start by saying that the location of the hotel is perfect, right on the ocean, close to the marina and within easy walking distance of local bars and restaurants. The property is well kept and clean. The bathrooms vary in size from the smaller upper floor to the spacious large showers on the 2nd and 3rd floors. The... More

Have stayed at the Duque several times and it is definitely my hotel of choice in Rota. Located right on the sea and within walking distance of shops, supermarkets, souvenirs, and restaurants as well as the Naval base, I have never had a bad experience there. Staff has always been friendly and accommodating, free Wi Fi is great, and the... More

Count yourself fortunate if you stay at the Hotel Duque de Najera!! The location could not be better.

This hotel is not modern at all. The beds are hard and I was stuck in a smoking room which was unacceptable when you request non-smoking. The staff and location are the only things that made this stay tolerable.
