On arrival had to wait over an hour for our room. Put this down to the party we arrived with being large but after reading other reviews this appears to be the norm. This gave us sometime to sit on the veranda, which over looks the sea.
We had an excellent room overlooking the sea. The room was a reasonable size and the bed was massive. The fan and the A/C unit worked really well, though the fan was a bit noisy. The bathroom was reasonable and the shower powerful.
The continental breakfast was very good and the staff worked very hard at keeping the food well stocked and the coffee and teas supplied to the diners.
The hotel is in a great location, right next to a beach and a 20 minute stroll to the town. It is in a quiet location, and even though there was a wedding reception going on during our stay, by closing the door between the bedroom and the main door all noise was blocked out.
Taxis on the rock are problematic and not run very well, it’s easier to catch the local bus or walk, though if booked through the hotel then they appear to arrive when needed.
All in all I loved Gib and loved the hotel. I couldn’t give the hotel a higher mark because there are areas of it that are in need of major TLC and I don’t understand why the management have not pushed for this to be done.
I would return to this hotel without hesitation and would recommend it to a friend.
