“Independent Mystery Guest Review”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

The Con Dios Bed and Breakfast is a 52ft Yacht permanently moored in Marina Bay at the heart of the vibrant Ocean Village area of Gibraltar it has 4 Guest bedrooms starting from as little as 25.00 GBP per Night.



When I arrived at the Con Dios I was greeted immediately by Jill & John who where very friendly and very knowledgeable about Gibraltar. I was shown to my Cabin by Jill who showed me how to operate their marine toilet (which is quite easy) I was then given all the information I needed about the Con Dios such as the WIFI password and what time it was usually switched off, how to get on and off the boat without having to go for a swim and how to get up to the Sundeck and more importantly how to get back down.



The Cabin I stayed in was surprisingly spacious very clean simplistic décor with a Gibraltar flag next to the window, there were tea and coffee making facilities and Cereal provided in the room, fresh milk was available in the fridge just below the stairs, and an en suite toilet which again was very clean and always smelt fresh.



Overall the Con Dios is Fantastic Value for Money in a good central location close to
•The Airport
•Bars and Restaurants
•Bus Station
•Points of Interest and Tourists Attractions

Casemates Square, Main Street, Trafalgar Cemetery and Botanic Gardens for the Top of the Rock Cable Car are all in walking distance of the boat.



Date of Visit: September 2013

Cost of Stay: £112 for 4 Nights

Just returned from Gibraltar where we spent our last 3 nights on board Con Dios ............What a great way to end our holiday! Our stay on board was a total surprise for my husbands 50th Birthday and neither if us was disappointed. Jill and John welcomed us aboard on our arrival and could not of been more helpful and friendly. Nothing too much trouble and help and advice invaluable!
Shown into out cabin to find a birthday card and Gibraltar day card .......... Such a nice thoughtful touch :-))
I booked the State room which was spacious and comfortable, had our own toilet and wash basin on board, showers in a block a short walk away that was very clean and modern.
Free Wi-Fi on board a welcome surprise after coming from a 5* hotel that charges £18 per 24hrs!!! Which we did not pay.
Was nice to relax on top deck after a full day sight seeing with a nice cold glass of something. There was a fridge on board for guests to use which was great for keeping drinks cold.
A good location down in the marine, and great view of the runway if you like watching planes.
If you fancy a holiday with a difference then staying aboard Con Dios is the place to go :-)))
Many Thanks to Jill & John

Had a great time there, room was bigger than I expected its still a cabin of course, bed was extremely comfortable and the owners were so helpful and gave fantastic advice for everything we wanted to do. A bit complicated using the toilet but you get used to, showers a short walk were brand new and kept very clean

After a long flight from Australia via Heathrow I was welcomed and looked after by these lovely people. My luggage was lost for 24 hours and Jill did some washing for me, an added bonus was the free internet provided I can truly recommend this place if you are going to Gibraltar, close to everything as well.Thank you Jill and John

We recently spent the night in Gibraltar aboard the Con Dios and had a wonderful time. Jill and John were waiting for us when we arrived with a world of concise information about the town that really helped us find our way without effort. We found the State Cabin to be comfortable and the ambiance attractive. The location is superb with easy access to all attractions. The Con Dios is a perfect way to spend an enjoyable evening after touring the Rock and town. Thank you Jill and John for making our stay in Gibraltar the best we could have imagined! As guest house owners/managers, we truly appreciate what you and the Con Dios offers.

We stayed 3 nights in the twin cabin which was a lot more spacious than I was expecting. Plenty of room with the most comfortable beds. They look narrow and you wonder if you'll fall out in the night but in actual fact you don't even notice the narrowness and we had 3 excellent nights being gently rocked to sleep.The toilet is a bit of a novelty and you get used to it quickly. The shower block down the end of the pontoon is very nice. Newly renovated and clean. Jill and John are fantastic hosts. They couldn't have been more knowledgeable and willing to share advice as to what to do, where to go and how to get there. The location is wonderful. There are plenty of bars and restaurants with good food. We walked our socks off, doing as much walking to the tourist sights as we could. We walked into Spain too. Walking from the airport to Con Dios is about 20 minutes and an easy route. Walking into town is about 10 minutes. We walked to Catalan Bay which took about 30 minutes (bearing in mind at this point we had been walking for 2 days and had sore leg muscles and even a blister, so I'm sure it can be done more quickly if you want) I would definitely recommend a stay at Con Dios and hope to return myself one day so that I can include a trip over to Tangiers from Gibraltar which only takes about 30 minutes. Huge thanks to Jill and John, whose hospitality is second to none!

Close to everything with lots of bars and restaurants the boat is comfortable and clean. We had a great 2 nights.
What surprised me most was all rooms have en suite facilities.
Well worth staying if you want something a little different to a room above a pub!
