Our first visit to this grand old hotel was in the winter of 1987. We were surprised at how lovely it was as our first impression of Algeciras was not particularly favourable. Since then we have returned time and time again, when we reached our 30th visit we stopped counting! We are always delighted by the genuine warm welcome we recieve from the staff many of whom have been there since our first time and who we now regard as friends. During the years we have seen many changes but feel that now the Hotel is the best it has ever been. The gardens are well kept and a delight to relax in there is certainly space for all even when the Hotel is very busy you never feel you have to 'fight' for a sun lounger. Although we prefer the wonderful ambiance of the A La Carte restaurant (perfect for a romantic dinner) the buffet meals are always plentiful and interesting you would have to be very 'picky' not to find something delicious to eat. We really rate this Hotel and as we now live in Andalucia we are able to drive down when ever we fancy a guaranteed super few days. Algeciras has greatly improved over the years and now we know that our first impression was definately wrong. If you are looking for bright lights and loud evening entertainment the Reina Cristina is not for you but if you require peace and quiet, good service, good food and wonderful surroundings then we could not recommend this Hotel highly enough.
