Business stay that felt like a vacation! Clean and comfortable, excellent location. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Everything about this place was great and I feel like I discovered a new spot for a family vacation. I'll be back.

Arrived here without a reservation in early March 2015, greeted and served professionally by Victoria Luna, stayed 6 nights in an ocean view room that was comfortable, elegant and wonderful to come back to after a day of sightseeing in the area. Our room included a sumptuous breakfast, and on the one day we left early on a sightseeing trip,... More

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.

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.
