“Another excellent weekend on board”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

This is the second year we have stayed with Jill and John. This time we took old friends with us, they had the stateroom and we had the starboard cabin.
All in all excellent three night stay as usual ,Jill and John are great hosts.

Our friends really enjoyed it, we all had great sleeps on board. Everything is within a short walk, ie airport, shops and eateries. Will be using Con Dios again no doubt.

Brilliant stay, helpful and kind owners, perfect way to start a trip of a lifetime. Cabin perfect in size for one and possibly two if you knew each other well. Top deck perfect spot to sit and watch subset over the rock. Will be back :)

Spent three night at the Con Dios and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, a little bit like staying in a well appointed caravan in the middle of the harbour, but very romantic and a location that cant be beat. The owners are very friendly and it is a five minute stroll from the airport.

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

Room Tip: We had the state room, I believe this is the largest room and the most expensive.

We stayed in the State Room on Con Dios at the beginning of March for 2 nights. Jill and John were the welcoming hosts who were not in the least bit intrusive. There was a generous supply of tea and coffee in the room. The room itself was comfortable and cosy and had inventive storage area. There was no hot water in the room. The showers, which were along the marina, were under refurbishment and men could only go at certain times, and women at other times (timetable on the shower door). This was the only downside for us - it was completely outside the control of our hosts. Still, if we'd wanted luxury, we would have stayed in a hotel not on a boat. As I washed my hair in the sink, using a kettle for hot water, it took me back to the power cuts of the 1970's!
I particularly enjoyed sitting on deck with a glass of Vina Sol watching the sunset and admiring the view of the Rock of Gibraltar. The gentle rocking of the boat gave me my best nights sleep in ages (although I had had only 3 hours sleep the night before due to getting drunk at a gig and then having to get up at 330am to get to Gatwick - so that may have had something to do with it).
Access to the boat is by a narrow gangplank. I thought this might be a challenge after a night out but this posed us no problems. In fact it rather added to the excitement of it all, but would not be suitable for someone with mobility issues.
The marina is, as you would expect, full of bars and restaurants, so you don't have far to go for something to eat or drink. Casemates Square is a short walk, as is the Main shopping street, while the cable car that takes you up the Rock of Gibraltar is a longer - but flat - walk.
Highly recommended!

Room Tip: The State Room is by far the best room with its own toilet and sink

We stayed in the State Room on Con Dios and found the cabin spacious, clean and comfortable. Personal Towels, Tea & Coffee were provided as were cereals and milk for breakfast. However, several things surprised us and future visitors may like to be aware:

• Access to the boat was via a very wobbly gang plank (Passerelle) with nothing secure to hang on to.
• There was no running hot water for washing in our cabin
• Despite “No Smoking” signs, we were frequently aware of tobacco smoke

Despite this, we enjoyed our stay and felt Jill & John made us very welcome.
