Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Great Appartment
The location, nearby attractions and transport have all been dealt with in other reviews. This appartment is spotless with comfortable beds, it also appears to be regularly updated. There is no terrace as such but the walkway is sufficient for sitting out and it is second from the end so only one appartment needs passing access. The senior hoppa ticket has just gone up to £1.50 which is peanuts. Had a super 10 days here and was lucky with the weather. Thanks Gloria

The perfect retreat for the more mature holidaymaker
This is an immaculate flat in a secure complex. It is located on Sandy Bay which has a lovely beach. There is a bus stop right outside the complex entrance In ten minutes you are in the Casemates Square,the busy heart of Gibraltar. Buy an all day Senior Hoppa ticket for £1.20 and you can ride unlimited on most buses. We are coming to the end of our week here. Wish we had booked a fortnight!

3 weeks in paradise
We had spent a week here the previous year, but we were keen for a longer stay, so in June we booked for 3 weeks with Gloria and it was every bit as good as we remembered in fact it was better because there is now a bar/restaurant in Sandy Bay, which serves very reasonable food (I understand it intends to close for the winter at the end of September), but this was a great bonus if you didn't want to go to Catalan Bay, or into the town centre. The beach was as pristine as ever, although a bit busier than the previous year, I guess its a little better known now and the bar helps too. This can cause congestion on the buses but nothing to worry about. We went to the Trafalgar cemetery, the Gibraltar Museum, and both the Great Siege Tunnels and the WW11 tunnels, and can recommend all three. We hope to return next year for another 3 weeks in paradise!

Thank you for the great review, we are delighted you had such an enjoyable holiday. The beach bar is proving to be very popular as you say and is a great improvement to the beach facilities. We very much look forward to welcoming you to our apartment again. Our host would also like to thank you for looking after everything so well and leaving the apartment in excellent order.

wonderful apartment with fantastic views
Ideal location right on the beach.Everything you could possibly want in a self catering apartment and more.Local buses stopping right outside the complex was a massive bonus and the fares for pensioners are so cheap too,an all day hopper ticket was only £1.20 per person. Had a marvellous holiday here really loved everything. Hope to return sometime soon.

Best holiday rental we have ever had...Perfect!
My wife is disabled but this Apartment was perfect for her, only one flight of stairs to the lovely sandy beach, lift from the reception area straight to the level balcony, so it was easy for her to come and go, the bus stops right outside the reception door! Catalan bay is a short distance away, and the bus drops you off there, but stops at 9.00 so we walked back. There are some great bars and seafood restaurants there, I recommend the Seawave! You can walk through the road tunnel to Europa point if you are feeling energetic, (I did) and the bus takes you straight to the bus station outside Casemates Square in the centre for shopping, or the number 8 also goes to Morrison's! We got a Senior (over 60) hoppa which is £1.20 and you can ride any bus all day with it! The balcony is so peaceful listening to the waves it's paradise.!

Wonderful apartment at Gibraltar's Sandy Bay
I spent eleven nice days in Gloria's wonderful apartment. Everything well equipped and selected with great taste. Especially for me as a person who has sometimes problems with breathing, it was amazing to stay in an absolutely dustfree environment, I enjoyed it a lot. Gloria's apartment is really marvellous!

About the neighbourhood
Sandy Bay is just as it sounds, a beautiful sandy beach with fabulous views of the Mediterranean, Spain and in the distance North Africa. The waters are safe for swimming and you can fish from the breakwaters. Just 10 minutes walk down the coast road is the prestigious Caleta Hotel where the Catalan Lounge & Terrace offers snacks and drinks throughout the day as well as a delicious English afternoon tea from 3pm to 6pm complete with scrumptious, home-made scones, cakes, pastries and an assortment of perfectly created sandwiches. Add a glass of champagne for true afternoon decadence and take in the stunning sea views from the terrace. In the evening, the Catalan Lounge & Terrace is transformed into a cocktail lounge where you may enjoy a glass or two of your favourite drink whilst looking out at the sparkling night sky or enjoy a delicious dinner in Nunos the hotels' own Italian Restaurant. There is also a Spa centre in the hotel offering treatments etc to non residents so why not pamper yourself. The hotel is in Catalan Bay where you can enjoy the delicious foods in the restaurants, or enjoy the beach. There is also a mini-market where you can pick up some groceries. The bus service which stops right outside the complex will take you into town in just 10 minutes. There is a further stop just halfway between Both Worlds and the Caleta Hotel where you can catch a bus to other parts of Gibraltar.
