“Perfect peaceful wedding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

My husband and I made the decision to travel to Gibraltar a month ago to be wed, just the two of us. There was no competition in picking the venue. The Caleta offers a fantastic package designed just for the like of us. Everything is organised for you - flowers, photographers, cake, meals, bridal suite, hair, makeup etc!

The whole experience, from booking right through to our big day, was stress free, easy and perfect. The staff at the hotel were really helpful, made us feel so welcome, and it was like ours was the only wedding in the world!

I would highly recommend the hotel for couples like ourselves who want a simple, peaceful, private wedding. There isn't one thing that I would change about our day, and I thank the staff at the Caleta for making it exactly how I dreamed.

The hotel offers everything you could need for a relaxing short trip to Gibralter, the hotel is located close to the town centre in little Genoa. There is. A couple of bars and a coffee shop in the village that can be accessed via the hotel. The seaview rooms offer superb views overlooking the sea as the hotel located right on the sea.

The communal areas such as the bar and dinning rooms are very comfortable offering a good selection of melas and wines and spirits at reasonable prices. There is wifi access more or less throughout the hotel which is free to guests.

Some of the areas are a bit in need of refurb however I was there out of season and maybe in high season these things will be addressed. There is a bus stop directly outside the hotel reception and taxi can be ordered at reception.

It was a great break at the hotel and the stff were very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view if you can it is worth the extra, as the view is beautiful, the rooms are big and...

Stayed at the Caleta to attend a friends wedding. Good basic room with sea view. Breakfast was good value (Continental). Hotel staff very helpful (especially when we needed a taxi to take us to the wedding because we were late). sea water pool and a short walk to the beach, Good bars nearby and regular bus service into town.
Would we stay again..definitely

Room Tip: If you don't want the hassle of getting bus or taxi into town then this is not the hotel for you...

Me and my family stayed in this hotel for five days whilst we stayed in Gibraltar for a relatives wedding which took place in the hotel. The room was spotless and the facilities were brilliant including room service and a mini bar. Every morning the breakfast was delicious and there was an excellent selection of fruits, cereals and savoury snacks. The service was fantastic. The greatest thing about this hotel is the location it faces Morocco to the right and the Southern Spanish Coast to the left and it's only a ten minute walk to the centre of Gib whilst not being too close to the centre without it being crowded and noisy , and not to mention the fantastic little alley that takes you down to Catallan Bay. Overall fantastic.

Wonderful holiday room was nice and clean needs a little touching up though, breakfast was a bit of a let down not much choice but over all lovely relaxing stay. View from hotel room was stunning looking out across to Africa we watched the fish in the sea from our room

We got married in Gibraltar in August. What a wonderful week! We stayed at the Caleta on the recommendation of our Wedding Planner Monica, at Hour Weddings. She wasn't wrong, my goodness they looked after us. My husband suffered a life threatening illness 12 weeks before the wedding, leaving him in a wheelchair - the hotel could not have been more helpful. They moved us to a room with great disabled access and made sure we had everything we needed, and more besides. We stayed from 2 days before the wedding to 4 days after and every single day was special. On my wedding day I felt like a princess. Special thanks to Kevin - your such a star! Our room - and the 4 our guests stayed in was spotless - beautiful in fact.
We had SUCH a great stay we went back for Remembrance weekend earlier this month, again it was beautiful. This time my husband was on his feet and the absence of the wheelchair was noted by staff - personal touch is rare. Great food in the bar, great service throughout, perfect weekend that left us refreshed and rested. We will be back very soon. Thank you so much to everyone at the Caleta.
If I had a down side it would be that it is pricey to stay - but all the good hotels on Gibraltar are pricey - fact of life.
It is out of town a little too, we like that, but if you want to be in the heart of things you won't get that here - but it is only a 5 minute car ride or the bus stops right outside the front door - every hour or half hour I think.
Being out of town makes it very quiet - some of the more central hotels have traffic noise problems. That's personal preference.
On the whole - Caleta you have a regular.

Room Tip: The hotel is in "wings" some rooms are up or down stairs - if you need a lift ask!

We got married in Gibraltar last week. It was a lovely country and great local people and I would do it again but I would definitely not stay at this hotel even if I was given a free room here. The amount of stress created was uncalled for. We paid a premium to stay at this hotel as compared to others and unfortunately the premium was not 'received' in satisfaction.

Reasons below:

Nice scenic view but that's about it! Housekeeping was friendly but front office reception staff could have been better trained for a hotel this expensive. e.g. Day of our registered wedding. booked well in advance but Taxi mix up due to staff not understanding English (Pablo mixed up our room number so we were late). We had to flag a cab on the busy road and were warned we might still get charged by the hotel for no show ! Front office reception try and smile to be polite but not effective at all in doing or getting things done. They need to have a manager around who understands English and can converse fluently. I felt like I was dealing with Government staff when dealing with them i.e. slow. The only receptionist who was really good was Gabor (Hungarian) and he knew how to deal with issues. The other 3 receptionists were useless.

Cleanliness : poor - dirty tub, smelly blanket ( I had to sleep in the cold as opposed to exposing my body to the blanket).

Internet was a disaster...due to repetitive attempts could not connect even from the hotel lobby. Staff at front desk were lazy in helping us fix the problem. Why advertise for internet (wifi) when there is none during the 3 days we were there ? they said only certain rooms catch the wifi.
Food was okay -nothing to rave about.
Breakfast - the best thing we had in this hotel was the breakfast (self serve).
View- really gorgeous.
Billing- on our checkout we were overcharged by one night ! good thing my mother caught this as we were in wedding mode so were not thinking of checking the hotel bill.
Hotel massage and make up /spa wonderful.. the massage therapist is great and so Is the makeup artist. my wife looked great in the wedding pics.
