Friends of ours have been going here on holiday for over 10 years and love the hotel. We met two other British couples who have been going to the hotel for almost 20 years. We decided to join our friends on holiday for 3 nights to try it out. It was lovely and we were made to feel so welcome by the staff. They even provided complimentary Cava and canapes in our room. It is either a hotel you love or you can find reasons to complain, as I see some people on this site have done. We loved it and will definitely be going back. However it may not be everyones cup of tea. It overlooks the docks and is quite quiet with not much going on. The food is excellent. When the hotel is busy the All Inclusive is a buffet. However while we were there we ate in the main restaurant most of the time with a choice of four starters, four mains, and four deserts.On the one night we had the buffet it was excellent with a good choice, also plenty of choice for my fish eating veggie partner. The room was very clean and had everything we wanted including a balcony with sea (docks) view. However fittings were getting a bit tired and air con was just adequate. We believe the rooms are all being refurbished. A lovely pool which we had to ourselves most mornings. The only small irritation was there seems to be an arrangement whereby if you eat at the hotel you can use the pool and on a couple of occasions this resulted in some noisy children at the pool from about 4pm. Not a big issue just plug in your ipod. Algeciras is a working port with not much to do. However if you want to experience real Spain and have a beer in a real Spanish tapas bar then this is the place. Also a good place to visit Gibraltar from. To conclude this is a lovely, quiet old fashioned hotel steeped in history. We loved it and will be going back.
