I enjoyed this hotel tremendously we had a sea view and it was gorgeous especially the sunrise, everyone was keen to help the breakfast and bar staff was friendly, the continental breakfast was very tasty and had a wide variety of items, and room service was only an extra £3 per room our room was cleaned every day and even when we left it in a right mess ( as 4 ladies were getting ready for a wedding bride & bridesmaids) everything was put back neatly, lovely air condoning in the room was a god send as it was 33•c, the room was equipped with a mini bar although slightly expensive, we took everything out and put our own water etc in and the cleaners always washed our glasses and put them in the fridge do nice and cold, you don't have to take any wash stuff with you as shower gel, shampoo, body lotion, toothbrush + paste, shoe shine, sewing kit, shaving cream + razor, shower cap, and towelling robe, over all a brilliant time and would definitely return.

We booked the bridal suite for three days and a seaview room for the remaining 7 days of our 10 day stay. There does seem to be two distinct sides to the hotel. The modern updated side then the older side. We stayed at both sides of the hotel and loved both equally. The decor was quite different in each. The staff were excellent during our entire stay and Marjo who organized the wedding facilities was always on hand to ensure we were happy and everything went smoothly. The venue is quiet and beautifully located to enjoy the beach and the quieter side of Gibraltar. Local restaurants are of excellent quality and low price. Its perfect to be able to walk straight down to the beach whenever you fancy. Sea views are beautiful. The hotel met every requirement for a beautiful, personal and memorable wedding. We saw several other weddings during our stay but we still felt our treatment by hotel was special and tailored to our needs. All staff tried their best at all times and were genuinely friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: some have a small balcony, I would imagine if you specified a balcony was important to you then it c...

The Caleta has a stunning location on the East of the Rock next to the popular swimming area of Catalan Bay, which is accessed by a set of stairs near the swimming pool. The pool itself felt warm, but that may have been in comparison with the sea I had just come out from. The beach is clean, with some pleasant places to eat set behind it in the Genoese Village.
Access to Gib central is by bus, which is cheap and frequent (get a 'hoppa' all-day ticket). The bus drops you off at the main square, Casemates, from where you can take other buses or walk. If using a taxi, the road tunnel at the South of the Rock is open, but drivers may wish to...extend their journey by coming round the top (North) end even if coming from Europa Point.

The hotel is a little faded in appearance, and my room, while clean, was somewhat tired. The double bed consisted of two singles pushed together that were slightly different in height, but the biggest problem was the headboard. This was secured neither to the bed nor to the wall, and the slightest movement in bed produced sounds reminiscent of a more passionate encounter. Everything else worked fine, and the room was airy and pleasant with amazing views of the sunrise.

Brakfast was continental, a 'full English' being available for £££££s. Salt and pepper are not provided at each table, and tea is from a thermos of hot water carried by the waiter, or an urn, rather than a pot. Two of my rolls were actually stale and hard, but the rest of the breakfast was adequate even if the items aren't replenished quite as often as one could wish.

I did not sample any other food, but once again, as so often, it is the staff who make or break any hotel stay, and they were, in this case, superb. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble.

Room Tip: A sea view room is much nicer

Just returned The Caleta Hotel.... what a lovely hotel. seeing the reviews on TripAdvisor I thought we may have made a mistake wanting to stay at this hotel, but I was pleasantly surprised. The reason for the stay was to attend a close friends wedding that was being held at the Caleta Hotel.
We all had a fantastic time and what beautiful grounds... yes a few things needed a lick of paint but we definitely overlooked that.
The staff were amazing anything we needed they were there. Wali and Kevin were fantastic.
The room was perfect and very clean I do recommend getting up early to watch the sun rise.
The food was perfect

Room Tip: 414 and 418

We had a further excellent week here in September.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Caleta, just a few points to make.
Our comments are:-
The lady who appears to be in charge of breakfast does a really good job. The day she wasn't in, breakfast organisation seemed to fall to pieces.
I thought that we saw Mohammed (behind the bar) smile once, but I could have been mistaken.
No problem checking in and the room was ready and waiting.
Reception staff were helpful and friendly.
Bar menu has been the same for a few years - needs updating.
Internet access easily available, and free.
We'll probably be returning later in 2014

My wife and I had our wedding at The Caleta Hotel in August 13, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The suite that we had was excellent, very clean and well presented. The whole wedding party stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and the food throughout was absolutely lovely. Ideal location for a great beach and salt water swimming pool. We also returned in mid September for a friends wedding and it was just as good. We are planning on returning every year as a little reminder of our special day.

Room Tip: If your budget allows go for a suite.

This is my second time this year after staying many years at the rock hotel.
The caleta is a little jaded around the edges but you can overlook that.
as Its in a wonderfull location with great seaviews and a great staff and kept verry clean inside.

The brekfast is continetal if on bb but selection of pasterys breads cereals and meets and cheeses nd fruits so a wide choice but you can pay a extra £5 for a full english if required.
There our bar snacks and meals on the terrace and nunos the itallian provides a pasta lunch which is advertised on top of the menu but does not advertise which is a shame a set three course evening meal in the evening as this is a great saving if staying afew days .but in the bay below there our three good eaterrys.
The room on the main side have lift acces where the otherside have steps , make sure you request if staeps our no good.
Rooms our well decorated and have wonderfull seaviews od rock views, but be wary of the apes here do not leave doors open unatended or you might get a visit.
I relly like the relax feeling and helpfull and atentive staff there but not there I think they have the idea just right
Can not wait till april for our next visit.
This is a hotel you want to come back to again and again
