Superb private balcony great to fall asleep to the sound of the sea and wake to a lovely sunrise. The apartment was clean and was a home from home. Milk tea water etc provided thanks Judy. A short walk away is Catalan Bay which has a small shop and a few restuarants. The shuttle bus was great to get in to town with very friendly driver's. The bedroom had aircon and the shower had good pressure. A great place to stay !

"Just did not want to leave...."
Such a lovely place to stay. Everything you could need is in the apartment.The view of the Med is stunning from your private balcony which is great for an evening meal or sun bathing during the day. T… More

Very good communication from Judy . Good explanation about property and buses. Milk, tea provided which was very welcome. The property was very well equipped,everything you needed for a self catering holiday. The rooms were clean light and airy and the air conditioning in the bedroom was very welcome at night. I loved watching the ships from the balcony.The only thing I was disappointed about was the beach was being renovated so couldn't use it. It will be lovely when finished!
I liked the fact that it was quiet and out of the way but close enough to town to walk if you are up to it. Can't get over the fact though that buses stop at 21.00. so used to them running through night in London!

"WOW WHAT A VIEW !!!!!!!!!"
My husband and I stayed in this apartment after Christmas for a few days. We found the apartment to be very clean comfy and well equiped.With stunning views from the balcony, there is nothing we could fault with this apartment.
With just a short walk to Catalan Bay where there is small shop for any essentials and a couple of restuarants which we found very reasonably priced. Or if you prefer to go a little further there is a bus from the reception at Both World's which will take you into town.
We found Both World's to be a great place to chill out and relax but within easy reach of the town.
We are missing the sound of the sea sending us to sleep at night, so thank you Judy the apartment is super and yes we will return.

"Home from home"
We stayed at this apartment for two weeks in June. It is ideal for a couple.It has all the facilities you need for a holiday;clean,lovely bedroom,the kitchen though small has all the facilities you need,nice bathroom and a lovely lounge to relax or watch T.V. It also has a lovely balcony to relax ,with a fantastic view across the Med. the sunrise in the mornings is striking.
Judy was very welcoming , attentive and helpful. We liked it so much that we have booked to go again next year.The beach is easily accessible, and the centre of town 10 minutes away by a very efficient and cheap bus service.
Gibraltar is a unique place with a friendly population with a British outlook it is a sterling area and everybody speaks English

"Best view imaginable"
Early March we stayed in the lovely little apartment. As we are in our fifties, we fitted in just right in the over-50's apartment development. The apartment has all mod cons , including satellite TV with all the usual UK channels. But the deepest impressing memories we have of the lovely seaview, seeing the sun rise in the morning, waking to the sound of the waves. 10 minutes bus ride takes you from the front door of the complex right into town, yet you stay on one of the few remaining places away-from-it-all on the rock Although being Dutch we were immediatly feeling at home on the rock helped by the Uk atmosphere, language and supermarket. Would recommend Both worlds to anyone over 50, and we will definitely try to go back again sometime near future

"Home from Home"
Lovely little apartment with a great view of the sea. It was in excellent condition and spotlessly clean. Transport to and from the town was great with an excellent bus service. The availability of books, games etc was greatly appreciated as it saved having to pack such items in your case. Pity about the weather but hopefully next time the weather will be kinder. Would certainly stay here again.

"Neat apartment in great location"
Stayed in Both Worlds in 1984 when it was a hotel. Was interested to see it now it has been converted to residential properties. Was not disappointed. This apartment is bright, comfortable and airy. There is a fantastic view over the sea from the balcony and one day walking from the apartments came across three rock apes fighting in the road! Everything that is needed seemed to have been thought of and provided. Judy met us on arrival and gave us a comprehensive tour of the property. She then left us to do as we wished and merely told us where to leave the keys on departure. A lot of information is provided within the property concerning what is on offer in Gibraltar. A good bus service is available either from immediately outside the apartments or within 5 minutes walk. Restaurants are available about 10 minutes walk away in Catalan Bay, or, of course, in town. We had three good days here and would certainly go back.
