A week after staying in this beautiful and charming hotel we were pleased to see it on Michael Portillo's train journey on B.B.C. 2 last night. During our very enjoyable stay we sampled a huge array of international food which I think caters for most pallets. Once inside the beautiful compound of Reina Cristina there is pure nostalgia mixed with modern day efficiency. Even when the staff were a bit thin on the ground they remained cheerful, kind and courteous. After a buffet breakfast a ten minute walk took us to the train and bus stations, so during our week's stay we visited Gibraltar, Tarifa and the magnificent village of Ronda. The shopping center and market of Algeciras are good to see. Each morning the streets are washed with soap and water. There is also a lovely Spanish park near the main shops. Buses and trains are clean and fares reasonably priced and thanks to the helpfulness of the staff we had no problems in spite of our very limited knowledge of Spanish. The hotel's shuttle service to and from Gibraltar airport was excellent. For those wishing to visit Gibraltar I'd strongly recommend the Reina Cristina.
