If you have never slept on a boat, and when I say boat I don't mean cruise liner, it will be a new experience and one to consider carefully as it might no be for everyone. It is not a floating hotel nor is any small cruser boat really. It has constraints and everything is a bit tight here and there. For myself I have done this many times on various crusiers and yatchts and Con Dios was a great place to be...
Great hosts, pleasant and helpful without being in your face. Not too many rules!
Comfy bed and no trouble sleeping. Simple breakfast of cereals and tea/cofee with milk in a shared fridge. Loads of free information provided and advice if requested
Sun deck is great to watch the world go by or the setting sun, a Marina is a pleasant location especially if you like to dream of owning a super yacht.
The Marina complex has some great restaurants, really good food, we were impressed.
Con Dios has no showers, quite normal for this size of boat really but the free showers on the marina are just a few minutes walk away. The gents have just been refurbished and are really smart. the ladies were a work in progress as we left.
The newly built airport is walkable, about a mile I guess at the most and all on the flat but taxis are easily arranged. There is a Marina car park which was about £4/night. In the summer parking is I understand a real problem so don't bring a car unless you have too.
Gibraltar for us was a walking experience, we never used buses or taxis and Con Dios is a good location to do this. All that said the bus service looks good.
We would definetely come back to both Gibraltar and Con Dios anytime
