Situated in one of Gibraltar's most prestigious locations. Located facing the marina and overlooking the lush sub-tropical gardens, six sparkling pools and seven Jacuzzis.
This modern apartment in Grand Ocean Plaza offers quality fittings and a high level of finish throughout. It boasts a luxury fitted kitchen with top of the range Fisher & Paykel appliances, designer bathrooms with under floor heating full air-conditioning, and floor to ceiling windows with sliding doors leading on to marina facing terrace with pools and marina views.
An excellent selection of Shops, world class restaurants, bars and even a casino lie, literally, on the doorstep, or take a two minute stroll to the hustle and bustle of Main Street and enjoy duty free shopping. The apartment is fully equipped, complete with bed linen & towels in addition to complimentary Wi Fi, an absolute must for uploading all those wonderful holiday snaps.
A welcome pack awaits you on arrival containing all the basics and a few extras to start you off on your holiday.
You will love the Ocean Village landscaped communal gardens, with 5 pools and 7 jacuzzi. The gardens cover 35,000 sq. ft. with lush, sub-tropical plants. The effect is to create a natural environment that flourishes all year round – giving shade in the summer and colour in the winter.
One of the pools and the jacuzzi is climatized and can be used all year round.
Ideal for holiday makers and corporate clients, also for families and couples who wants to relax in luxury settings, yet it offers plenty of tourist attractions, which are accessible by foot or short drive by taxi or bus as the bus station is a 2 minute walk away from the property.
Better than in the pictures and was absolutely lovely! Beautifully finished, and the beds were SO comfortable! We had an excellent 4 nights here. The apartment allows you access to swimming pools and a gym. And although you cannot see the rock from the balcony, the views were wonderful, especially the marina and the Spanish border at night time. I got the bedroom with the balcony. Pretty special! Would really recommend.
A very good base from which to explore Gibraltar. Great proximity to bars restaurants in the marina. Suzanne was very helpful and gave good advice on beaches and bus routes. Glad we stayed there.
We very much enjoyed our stay here. The flat is of a high standard, and is handy for the town centre. It is also close to the airport, but surprisingly there isn't much noise from either this or city traffic (by Gibraltar standards, of course!). Renting this flat also gives the tourist access to Ocean Village's pool complex, which is an excellent facility- real luxury on a hot day!
We experienced a minor problem during our stay, but am happy to report that the staff managed to sort it out with a minimum of fuss. This is certainly a flat which we would be happy to rent again.
I have been going to Gibraltar on and off for over 30 years and I have stayed in different apartments in Ocean Village every summer for the last 5 years, and particularly like this apartment as the balcony is larger than some of the other apartments, so you are able to relax with family/friends on it without feeling cramped (or suffering from vertigo).
The apartment itself is spacious and clean, and most importantly a place you can relax in after you've been out all day. The cooker is still a bit of a puzzle to me and takes a bit of experimenting to work out( but this is the same in all the apartments).
The access to the private pool complex is a key point especially if you have young children, and also to allow you to have a relaxation day.
If you are looking for somewhere in Gibraltar in a good location then this is it:
it is very near to Casemates where there are several restaurants you can wander down to for breakfast in the morning, and in the evening you can walk to restaurants along the harbour for dinner.The main tourist information office is also in Casemates.
There were no problems in meeting up to get the keys, and we were very kindly allowed to stay past check-out on the final day as there was nobody moving in immediately after us , which gave us the opportunity to make the most of the last day.
I don't have anything negative to say about this apartment or the owners, but I'm not going to recommend it because I want to stay there next year and don't want anybody else booking it!!
Really felt like home
Arrangements for arrival were easy, and we were given our keys and security information quickly enough so we could settle in. There was plenty of space, and the safe balcony meant the children had freedom to move about. The memory foam mattresses were a little too hot for some of our group.
The location was ideal for what we wanted. Some info on buses (bust stops/routes/timetables) would have been helpful when we considered finding a beach.
We chose Gibraltar for sentimenttal reasons - my husband was in the Navy and he loved it there - and we weren't disappointed.
We have stayed in Gill's apartments before but this was the first time in this apartment on the 12th floor. As always the apartment was spotless and had everything you needed and Suzanne met us there promptly. We are usually only there for work but on this occasion, once our work was finished, my colleague went home but I stayed on for an extra few days and my Husband joined me there so we were also able to enjoy the fantastic swimming pool area. With the apartment having a corner balcony, the views were amazing as you could see into the town and right round the coast of Spain.
Gibraltar has many tourist attraction: dolphin safaris, fishing trips, cable car to the Upper Rock, nature reserve, St Michaels Cave and the historic Great Siege Tunnels.
