We were here for a 2 night stay while we went for a day trip to Gibraltar. This worked well. We caught a local bus from the bus station in Algeciras and it took nearly an hour to Gibraltar, which was fine with us. No hiccups at the border, a day of sightseeing, return bus trip, then taxi to hotel. The bus fare was only a few euros. This hotel was recommended to us for this purpose and it was certainly a good place to relax on the day we arrived. It has a large pool and grounds. A few obnoxious male spaniards around the pool made it a bit unpleasant for the rest but we weren't bothered. The meals can be a la carte or a buffet and everything is plentiful. The service at reception was a it underwhelming but the staff were very busy, they could have done with extra. As the hotel is quite spread out with wings, it is a long haul with luggage to your room but ours was very large and spacious. The wifi was also good. The creaky doors and floorboards were not so good. A big can of oil would have done wonders on a lot of the ones on our floor. We could ot close ours quietly even though we tried, and others simply didn't try. Besides that, everything was fine. It was also very reasonably priced and very good value.
